IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:Candace Owens, a political activist, explains how some movements, like Black Lives Matter, are being used by the elite for a means to a political end. She explains important nuances about victim mentality that we all can truly consider.
  • Reflect On:Can we see how the current climate regarding racism, sexism, and other matters of contention are predominantly falsified narratives that are actually preventing us from coming together and growing?

Candace Owens is known as an American commentator and political activist. She is well known for her criticism of Black Lives Matter as well as the Democratic party. She is the Director of Communications at the conservative advocacy group Turning Point USA. In a recent talk she was giving to black youth (see video below), she responded this way to a disruptive group of audience members that represented Black Lives Matter:

I have yet to meet an Asian-American that walks around talking about the internment camps, and yet you will always find a black person talking about slavery…What is happening in the black community right now is, there is an ideological civil war happening. Black people that are focused on their past shouting about slavery and black people that are focused on their futures, ok? That’s really what it comes down to.

I can guarantee you what you’re seeing happening is victim mentality vs victor mentality…Victim mentality is not cool, I don’t know why people like being oppressed…, “we’re oppressed…four hundred years of slavery, Jim Crow…” which, by the way, none of you guys lived through, your grandparents did, and it’s embarrassing that you utilize their history and you come in here with more emotion than they ever had when they were living through it. It’s embarrassing, you’re not living through anything right now, you’re overly privileged Americans…I’m so ashamed at the way you guys are acting and the fact that you love being oppressed, I don’t get it…You’re not going to ever make me think that oppression is cool.

Trying To Help People Break The Illusion

She is trying to help the black community, and references the Black Lives Matter movement as an example of promoting a victim mentality. She states that these members are pawns for the Democratic Party and that they don’t even realize it, while in the process they are ruining their lives for something they don’t understand and which is “fundamentally false.”… Read the rest of this entry »

From Silent Sam to Screaming Selfies | Chronicles Magazine

Posted by M. C. on November 5, 2018

Given the wretched state of American education today, is it any wonder that rowdy mobs of students spouting Cultural Marxist slogans are answering the call of their leftist teachers and college professors to destroy Confederate symbols?

In the 19th century blacks in Africa owned slaves and sold them to the highest bidder. They still do.

Muslims perfected sexual slave trade.

What do the NYT and Soros’ useful idiots say about that?

In the wake of the August 20 toppling of Silent Sam, a monument to North Carolina students who volunteered to become Confederate soldiers in 1861-65, our television screens were filled with images of scraggly, rough-bearded Millennial men and unkempt women screaming profanities and shouting imprecations about racism, white supremacy, and the dangers of “fascism.”  Which is to say, they were “demonstrating for peace and justice.”  Silent Sam, a symbol of courage, sacrifice, and duty, has stood on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for over 100 years.  News accounts showed the figure lying on the ground, as members of the mob took turns kicking at it and spitting on it, and taking selfies while doing so.

Behind those fierce images of anarchy lurked a darker, scarier truth.

Admittedly, some members of the mob of August 20—a number of whom came back to demonstrate again on Saturday, August 25—were not really students.  They were professional itinerant militants from Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Marxist groups… Read the rest of this entry »

The barbarians are laughing as they take us down.

“The Barbarian cannot make … he can befog and destroy but … he cannot sustain; and of every Barbarian in the decline or peril of every civilization exactly that has been true.”

A week ago, the statue of missionary and Catholic Saint Fr. Junipero Serra was beheaded at the Santa Barbara Mission he founded. A century-old Columbus statue in Central Park was defaced and spray-painted with: “Hate will not be tolerated.” Read the rest of this entry »

Fact vs. Fiction

Posted by M. C. on August 17, 2017

Just remember there is only one side to every story.

First, while there were indeed some self-styled neo-Nazis that were present among the rally’s attendees, they were, by all appearances, a tiny minority.  And they constituted a far smaller fraction of the totality of the group than, say, that which on multiple occasions comprised the totality of Black Lives Matter demonstrators that marched through busy city streets shouting such murderous slogans as, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” and “Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon!” Read the rest of this entry »
