Miss America: The Latest Institution Destroyed by the Left

As I have documented repeatedly, the left ruins just about everything it touches: the universities, the arts, the elementary schools and high schools, religion, sports and ordinary, everyday interactions between human beings — especially human beings of different races. The latest examples — in just the last few weeks — are the Boy Scouts, sculpture and the Miss America pageant.

The left’s decades long attempt to radically change the Boy Scouts has ended in triumph. Now that the Boy Scouts is admitting not only older girls but also younger girls — as Cub Scouts — it is dropping “Boy” from its name and becoming Scouts BSA. Thanks to the left, the Boy Scouts, one of the most socially and morally constructive organizations in America, is no longer the Boy Scouts.

As a result of that, as a result of the decision to admit openly gay males as troop leaders (the Boy Scouts never asked potential troop leaders about their sexual orientation but did not allow openly gay troop leaders) and as a result of factors specific to the Mormon church, the largest sponsor of Boy Scout troops in America, the church has ended its 100-year relationship with the Boy Scouts.

Another victim of the left in recent weeks is the arts. Last week, The New York Times published a serious “review” on a major new “art work” at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The “art work” is a set of four giant piles of sculpted excrement. As described by Times writer Nina Siegal: “I walked into the excrement.

“There were four giant turds inside the 16,000 square feet of museum space. One mammoth piece of feces was reminiscent of a long, winding steel sculpture by Richard Serra. One was a brown spiral. Another resembled an enormous chocolate chip. Yet another featured intertwined layers with a gap in between that I could have crawled through …”

The artistic left is infatuated with feces, urine and menstrual blood. Last year, New York City’s famed Guggenheim Museum featured an all-gold toilet bowl into which visitors were invited to relieve themselves. As the exhibit was titled “America,” one could then literally urinate and defecate on America. Why not? The left does that to America and Western civilization every day.

The latest victim of the left is the Miss America contest. The Miss America board announced that contestants will no longer wear swimsuits or evening gowns because Miss America will no longer be about physical beauty. It will be about “the hopes and aspirations” of 52 women contestants.

My first reaction is: Why stop there? To be consistent with its new ideals, the event should no longer be televised but rather broadcast on the radio. Only then will the contestants’ looks be truly irrelevant.

The left, which has brought “sex week” to almost every college campus, which has introduced coed dormitories with coed showers and bathrooms, and which has told young women that sex without any commitment should be as much fun for them as it is for men, is now the guardian of modesty at the Miss America contest.

In particular, feminists hate it when women try to look sexy, especially in the eyes of men.

One of the left’s favorite terms to describe the Miss America swimsuit competition (and even the evening gown competition) is “dehumanizing.” In a long article on the Miss America decision, The New York Times quoted Julie Zeilinger, who founded “a feminist blog called FBomb”: “in 2018 this organization has realized it’s dehumanizing to compare and judge women’s bodies in front of a vast, international audience.”

This feminist charge is ubiquitous but never explained. Why is it dehumanizing?

One irony is feminists have argued for decades that women should be allowed to walk around topless, just as men can.

Another irony is that when non-Muslims argue that Muslim women wearing a chador is dehumanizing, the left charges them with intolerance and Islamophobia.

A third irony is women are as interested in seeing beautiful women in swimsuits as men are.

I was raised in an Orthodox Jewish home, and I recall my mother and father enjoying the Miss America pageant every year. They would discuss their favorites with each other, both of them perfectly at peace with the proceedings, as was the Christian majority.

Which raises a final irony: When America was far more conservative, far more religious and far more concerned with daily modesty in dress, and when it insisted that male students and female students reside in separate dorms at college, it celebrated the Miss America pageant with its swimsuit competition. That was a healthier America.

Inside of a few weeks, the left has gravely damaged the Boy Scouts, probably destroyed the Miss America pageant and pounded another nail into the coffin of art.

That’s what the left does best – ruins whatever it touches. That’s pretty much all it does.

What Happened?

Posted on

The first part of my life I was a Democrat and voted more often than not for their candidates. Slowly but surely the party turned into something I did not recognize and eventually I switch party affiliation to the Republican party. Unfortunately the Republicans are changing also and I am leaning to the Conservative party.

The Democrats have turned into an anti-American hate group who brands everyone with things such as racist, homophobe and whatever else their tiny brains can think of; there was a time when they would try to see the person and not their attributes – but not anymore.

The Republicans as a party are so weak they have erased the word “no” from their vocabulary and they go along with the Democrat rantings. The Republicans are so weak that they not only go along with the Democrats they have even taken to not supporting President Trump.

The Republicans and Democrats should just get together into one party and get it over. That would leave the Conservatives who are actually listening to the American people as the second party.

And while we are at it the Main Stream Media has played a huge part in making this happen. In the old days the media would tell us the news of the day; but today they aren’t satisfied with that they now do everything possible to make or change the news. They have been very bad to us and until they make an attempt to get back on track they are our enemy and should be avoided at all cost. I have eliminated them from my news source and if I do listen/watch the news it is on Fox; Fox has its own problems but they are the best of the lot.

Yes I think the wall should be built for our own safety so please don’t distract me with what shoes the Presidents wife is wearing.

Animal Rights Activists

Posted on Updated on

May 24, 2017

It’s just my weird way of thinking and seeing things but I am now thinking that with Sea World not having any whale or dolphin shows and with Barnum and Baily now shut down that this will have a negative effect on animals in the world.

Todays vocal activists became interested in animals after experiencing them by visiting places like SeaWorld and the Circus. The dilemma is this.  Without the spark of interest created by such places as Barnum and Bailey and SeaWorld  there will be fewer and fewer of these so called activists to worry about animal rights.  That means that these activists have set their own cause back about 50 years or more.  There needs to be more tolerance and flexibility to further the cause and not kill it.

But of course the hard core activists (whatever the cause) are absolutely never satisfied and keep pushing further and further. These activists will seen find out what other activists have started to find out, that the silent majority will allow itself to be pushed just so far and then they will start pushing back;  and that push back will be further and harder then they normally would taking back a lot of the ground that the activists have gained.

Liberals Are Getting Very Tiring

Posted on

After the election was over I was afraid that life on line would get very boring.   Then the Liberals started with there whining and crying each one trying to get more attention than the last.  At first there was a certain amount of humor in the shenanigans these folks were doing  and what they were saying was so far out it was in the realm of humor and yet so sad that they had to do and say these crazy things on order to become relevant again.    And even worse the main stream media reported these things like they had just heard brilliant things from the worlds biggest genius.

Anyway,   this stuff is no longer interesting or funny;  it is now just annoying and it is time for people to come to their senses and grow up.  There is no way that anyone can live their life without hearing or seeing anything that might offend them or hurt them in some way;  everyone has trials they have to go through and overcome.

We have yearly elections and if we don’t like what is going on then it is your responsibility to get out and work to elect the person whom you agree with – don’t just whine and complain and disrupt life for everyone else.

Dear Mr Trump

Posted on Updated on

Just a simple request. Please do not let the Media, Entertainment Industry or Liberal Activists make you back away or water down what you know needs to be done. In the short time you have been in office it is like a breath of fresh air. And the folks you have appointed so far are wonderful and just what this country needs to get back on track.

So please President Trump stay positive and know that most Americans are behind you and praying for you and your family.

Election 2016–Not Over Yet

Posted on

After Donald Trump won the election I was afraid things would get very boring with no more campaign nonsense in the news and on Facebook or Twitter;  I was even thinking of taking my two Blogs that I dedicate to pro Conservative and anti Liberal sentiment,  and to repurpose them to other content. 

But with the Liberals rioting in the streets and demanding recounts and putting Nancy Pelosi back in the limelight I can see that the run of the mill politicians will give me enough fodder as least for now to keep my blogs in the political arena. 

People are using words as weapons as a way to shut people up from talking about anything they don’t agree with.   College kids are afraid when they hear or see anything they don’t agree with and they get this from the colleges and Professors who all tend to be Liberal and Socialist and are indoctrinating a whole generation of kids who now will not be able to survive in a real world.  They don’t even know which bathroom to use anymore.

We have Liberals who persecuted a bakery because they stood up for their faith and refused to make a cake for a gay couple.  Yet the Liberals being the hypocrites that they are are refusing to work with Trumps wife because of their “beliefs”.  And the news media. . . I rarely listen to the news from them anymore;  I barely even listen to Fox News as they took a giant step to the left this past year.

Hillary Clinton is for all Americans. Except Christians, conservatives and the unborn.

Matt Walsh is a blogger, writer, speaker, and professional truth sayer.

The Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party have been engaged in a covert plot to infiltrate and undermine the Catholic Church. That is a crazy Republican conspiracy theory, and the craziest thing about it is that it also happens to be the truth. This demonstrates one of the major problems conservatives have always had in dealing with the Clinton Machine: They’re so absurdly corrupt and villainous that simply reporting on their actual behavior makes you sound like a fringe nutcase in an aluminum foil hat.

But the truth is the truth, regardless of how outlandish it sounds. And we know about this truth because it was clearly outlined in leaked emails between top officials in the Clinton campaign. During the course of several conversations, they complained bitterly about conservative Catholics, calling them “severely backwards” and accusing them of being people attracted to “systematic thought,” duped by a “bastardized” faith, and harboring terrible, sexist views about gender. Oddly, it was concluded that wealthy and influential Catholics are only Catholic because they want to seem “sophisticated.” I’m not quite sure how someone can be both backwards and sophisticated at the same time, but I suppose hateful prejudices are rarely coherent or consistent.

Of course, we’re all familiar with and hardly surprised by these common complaints about the mean old Christians who refuse to give up on 2,000 years of teachings for the sake of conforming to the ideological trends of the moment. More noteworthy was the conversation in one of the email chains about the need to “plant the seeds of revolution” within the Catholic ranks. The campaign plotted to rid Catholicism of its doctrines and orthodoxy by fomenting a progressive rebellion. It was agreed that they need to spark a “Catholic spring” to “end the Middle Ages dictatorship.” Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, assured his co-conspirators that Trojan horse groups had already been created for this purpose:

We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up.

We need not even point out how the media would react if these same emails were leaked from top Republicans — as long as “Catholic” and “Catholic Church” were replaced with “Muslims” and “Islam” or even “Jews” and “Judaism.” If it were revealed that the Trump campaign not only griped about the “backwards” American Muslims or the “bastardized” Jews, but actually had a hand in creating fake Muslim or Jewish groups as vehicles to sneak in anti-Muslim or anti-Jewish ideology, anchors on CNN would be having actual heart attacks on camera. Hillary Clinton would weep publicly over the “hatefulness” and “cynicism” and “discrimination” and so on and so forth. “We’re stronger together,” she would cry out in a robotic voice straining to sound at least somewhat emotional.

Yet, because the Democrats did it, and they did it to those bastard Catholics, they won’t even be forced to say they’re sorry. The Clinton camp came out and dismissed the whole issue as a “faux controversy,” which is the same thing they said about Clinton breaking federal law and then deleting emails to cover it up, and the same thing they said about Clinton getting four Americans killed in Benghazi, and the same thing they’ve been saying for 30 years. I’m starting to suspect that these people don’t know what the word “faux” means. In fairness, they did agree that an apology should be forthcoming in this case — but they said the apology should come from Donald Trump for colluding with the Russians.

As for them colluding with each other to destroy a religion that 70 million Americans belong to, they see no reason to express remorse. And why should they? The media has dutifully shelved this story, along with every other negative Clinton story (it’s a very crowded shelf at this point), and now we’ve moved back to dwelling on Donald Trump’s dubious sexual exploits. Don’t get me wrong: It is certainly relevant that the GOP nominee is an alleged serial abuser of women, but it’s also relevant that the Democratic nominee is a crook, a liar, and a bigot engaged in a plot to overthrow our religious institutions and reshape them in her own image. A fair minded and honest person would find the time to be outraged by both. But in our country there is a severe shortage of those kinds of people, particularly in the media.

Unfortunately, I can’t force the news to report this story, and I can’t make anyone care about it even if they did. But I can at least point out that, despite the slogan she constantly repeats, Hillary Clinton does not intend to be a president “for all Americans.” While we hear so much about Donald Trump’s “bigotry” and “divisiveness,” let’s keep in mind that Hillary Clinton is the one who thinks that millions of Americans are ”irredeemable” and millions more are “backwards” misogynists who subscribe to a “Middle Ages” faith. And it’s not only Catholics that Clinton hates. Recall that just last year she announced at the Women in the World Summit that “deep seated religious beliefs have to be changed.”

It was around that time that her people were emailing back and forth about infiltrating the church, so we know that she meant what she said. And what she said is quite terrifying when you break it down. Religious beliefs have to be changed. She does not think that those of us who harbor the beliefs should have a choice in the matter. And they must be changed, which is noticeably different than saying that the members of these faiths should change them. No, they must be changed. As in, some more enlightened, progressive force must come in from the outside and make the necessary alterations. After all, the silly, ridiculous fools who buy into this religious crap can’t well be expected or trusted to do it themselves.

Hillary Clinton is not for all Americans. She is for a very specific sort of American, and those who do not fit that mold should be forced to change or pay the price. She does not intend to be a president for Christians, or orthodox members of any other faith, or conservatives. Nor will she be a president for the unborn, we should note. In Hillary’s view, the only real Americans are those who have met her standards of physical and intellectual development. Anyone who falls outside of those requirements does not deserve respect, nor do we really deserve our constitutional rights. As far as she’s concerned, we’re modern day neanderthals. She’s not for us. And if — as will very likely be the case — she becomes president simply and solely because she had the great fortune of running against Donald Trump, we Christians ought to remember this fact.
