The Bladensburg Cross Attracts Haters

The progressive haters are at it again. We see them on the attack within our childrens’ schools, our colleges and universities, and even our churches. There is a never ending attack on American culture, and specifically on Christianity. Left wing progressives attack the United States at the root of our beliefs, and scoff at the memorials of our revered heros and founders.

Hate is the real reason that the forty-foot tall cross memorial to WWI fallen is in danger of being brought down by a ruling of our Supreme Court. The case will be discussed, today, February 27, 2019.

Outside the little town of Bladensburg, Maryland is the forty-foot tall World War I memorial in the shape of a cross, called the Peace Cross. The cross was erected on July 13, 1925 on public property by the American Legion to memorialize the forty-nine men of Prince George’s County who gave their lives in the service of their country.

Enter the American Humanist Association and their Supreme Court suit to bring the cross down. On the front page of their website we read one reason for opposing the Peace Cross. “Most punditry surrounding the Bladensburg cross is a testament to how militarism has overtaken the American mindset.

The humanists are not only using the separation clause of the Constitution, but they are saying that our nation is so militarily oriented that we not only allow, but encourage religious symbols in military memorials. This is of course, garbage.

The First Amendment separation clause reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…“.  A reading of this clause reveals that the government cannot establish a state religion as seen in England and many European countries. Erecting a memorial is not establishing a religion.

Their reason for opposing the monument is, pure and simple, they hate Christianity. They don’t hate Islam, Mormons, Hindus, or Bhudists. They hate Christians and everything they stand for.

As stated in their feature article, “Yet many are ready to throw constitutional principles aside merely because the Bladensburg case calls into question actions that were taken to honor the military.” That’s quite a dodge. Humanists hate the military, and they hate everything Christian or American. I don’t even think humanists like humans!

It will be interesting to see how our new Supreme Court handles this case. Even though the arguments will be heard tomorrow, it will probably take a while for a ruling to be announced.

What do you think will happen?

Update: I got this news bit from the web, today. Observers feel that the cross will be left alone. It is not clear to me when the official ruling will come out.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez And Climate Change

Best Picture I Could Find For Ocasio-Cortez

We all know what an infantile mind AOC has, but we still have to process the babble that comes from her mouth. Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that there is a consensus of scientists that predict that the future climate will be tough on kids. This is wrong on several levels.

The Dems and liberals say that 97% of scientists support some sort of consensus about global warming. First, nobody has a list of these so-called scientists, and the studies that make that claim are pretty rotten in their methods, just self-serving publications for social scientists that cannot get a real paper published.  Second, nobody knows exactly what that consensus would say if there were one.

When you hear someone ask if you believe in climate change, just ask “what part?”. They are then left speechless with no response. Climate change effects can be in several categories, like more tornadoes. more hurricanes, more and serious droughts. more wild fires. There is no scientific data showing that any of these things are real now, or ever will be. Sure, some ice will melt in the next few centuries, but all forecasts are that it will take possibly thousands of years for all of the Greenland ice pack to melt, and a very long time for the Antarctic ice to melt. In Antarctica there are volcanos under the ice melting from that level, but CO2 has little or no effect on that continent’s warming. For the most part it’s not warming at all.

Why do Democrats rant and scream about so-called Climate Change? Simple. This is the latest crisis they can find with grain of truth that they can exploit to suck money out of the American people. Most of climate change dogma is dog crap.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez believes all this stuff. This woman has a BA in international affairs and economics from Boston University. Oh, the terrible embarrassment BU must be undergoing with this little jewel flashing her ignorance around the world.

She has a sterling resume, but that just reminds me of the prophetic film, Forest Gump. Stupid is as stupid does.
