Renaming schools is an anti-American, racist agenda

Wednesday, February 3, 2021, 10:47 am | Randy Thomasson
Theodore Roosevelt, Dianne Feinstein, and Abraham Lincoln weren’t slaveowners, yet, still hated by the Radical Left, they’ve been erased from San Francisco’s K-12 schools.

What does it mean that some government school districts (San Francisco and Berkeley to start) are eliminating our U.S. Founding Fathers and other U.S. Presidents as school names?

In godless, Democrat-controlled San Francisco, the school board has eliminated George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and 40 others for school names. This follows the Berkeley school district erasing Washington and Jefferson last summer.

It’s all part of the Radical Left’s attempt to divide people and promote racism, saying these historical figures engaged in “enslavement” or “oppression” or “diminished opportunities.” Nothing good about our U.S. founding fathers will be said or taught to schoolchildren.

Why is this happening? Deep down, these Democrat-controlled school boards are trying to ignite a race war by denouncing “slaveowners” and other undesirables who never owned slaves. Their goal is to teach dark-skinned children to identify with “slaves” (a big lie) and make their race their top identity (a recipe for racism). This is in line with the “1619 Project” and “critical race theory” brainwashing, which teach that whites hate blacks, so black should hate whites. Then a new Leftist army can rise up and take over.

Yet all reality-based Americans should reject racism and embrace the goal of a colorblind society:

Martin Luther King, Jr.: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Burgess Owens: “We’re dealing with whether we’re going to accept the idea of socialism and Marxism and atheism. Or go back to the American way, Judeo-Christian values, which meritocracy is part of it. The idea that content and character and talent are colorblind.”

President Theodore Roosevelt: “There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all … Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance. But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as any one else.”

What’s more, among true Christians, there are to be no racial identities or distinctions, but all have their #1 identities in Jesus Christ as part of His Church. As it is written, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28) and “where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all” (Colossians 3:11).

And what about the charges of “systemic racism” and “injustice”? The only U.S. citizens are “Americans.” The only laws about race prohibit racial discrimination. There is no systemic racism, except from Radical Leftists claiming it, promoting “group guilt,” and promulgating racial division instead of American unity.

Because when Southern states’ segregation laws were dismantled by the 1964 Civil Rights Act, a colorblind society began, valuing personal responsibility and individual merit. This “equal opportunity” society was a fulfillment of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s colorblind dream. Yet the push for racial quotas, “affirmative action,” racial identity, and identification with past slavery is a racist nightmare — a volatile, concocted recipe of victimhood, irresponsibility, violence, anti-Americanism, and anti-Christianity.

Another thing these Democrat/New-Communist-controlled school boards want to do is prevent children from admiring our written Constitution, the foundation of our republic. Specifically, they want to change our system of justice from individual guilt or innocence to group guilt or innocence, leading to vast, subjective injustice convicting innocent people of made-up “crimes.” A pure democracy with no rules!

YOUR ACTION STEPS:

  1. Remember who these revisionist-history, teacher-union-endorsed school board members are, and encourage your friends to vote against them next election.
  2. Share with others — and post on news sites — portions of the above message.
  3. Let this motivate you to get your children or grandchildren into homeschooling or church schooling. Someone’s going to shape their minds, hearts, and souls. Don’t let it be the non-academic, politically-correct, sexually-indoctrinating, awful peer-pressure, godless government schools. Rescue your child.

…democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.
U.S. Founding Father James Madison in Federalist Paper #10 (1787)

Can the Newsom recall qualify?

February 15 update: 1.5+ million raw signatures collected (because of errors by signers or circulators, need 1.9 to 2 million total raw signatures by March 10 to achieve the required 1.5 million valid signatures). So please help collect 400-500K signatures additional signatures before March 10. Concerned Californians cannot fail!

The last few decades in California, there have been no petition campaigns that qualified for the statewide ballot without the bulk of the valid signatures coming from paid, professional signature-gatherers who set up tables outside major shopping centers.

So until recently, the volunteer-driven petition drive to recall Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom wasn’t given much of a chance. Yet several factors have emerged to give real hope to the Recall Gavin Newsom Campaign:

  1. California’s uber-liberal governor has deeply hurt average Californians with his heavy-handed lockdown (which hasn’t worked to stop the spread of Covid).
  2. Newsom has issued unfair, unjust, and unconstitutional “orders” that have rubbed millions of small business owners and parents of school-aged children the wrong way.
  3. Both these factors — along with other horrible things Newsom has done — have motivated small armies of Californians to volunteer to gather signatures.
  4. In November, a Sacramento judge gave the petition campaign an additional four months to try to gather 1,495,709 total valid signatures by March 17, 2021.
  5. The campaign has successfully pioneered downloadable petitions, with a high validity rate.
  6. Some larger donations have come in, enabling more petitions to be mailed to Republican voters.
  7. Because of conservatives’ anger against Newsom, the mailers have a good response rate. The latest update from the campaign is 1.2 million raw signatures.

With 50 days to go before petition signatures must be delivered to 58 county registrars of voters, now is the final push in which every concerned Californian can participate. Victory is within reach if enough conservatives — including everyone seeing this alert — shun watching and start doing!

Here’s the petition to carefully download and exactly follow the instructions

Here’s the math: 1,200,000 raw signatures currently + 750,000 raw signatures still needed (15,000 per day x 50 days left) = 1,950,000 raw signatures. If circulators follow instructions and instruct signers, an 80 percent validity rate would yield 1,560,000 valid signatures, which would be enough to qualify.

TAKE ACTION: Because of California’s cataclysmic destruction by Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, California conservatives must jump into signature-gathering now to try to collect three or more signatures from acquaintances who haven’t yet signed. If volunteer and mailer petitions increase in momentum the remainder of January and all of February, qualifying the recall election of Gavin Newsom for the 2021 ballot might become a reality. So please, act now to collect signatures from California registered voters!

Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?
Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

Overcoming political depression

If you’re a conservative or a Christian, you’re probably politically depressed right now. I’ve suffered from bouts of depression both this week and last, not because I put my trust in man, but because our constitutional republic is falling apart.

Yet, as a wanna-be-disciple of Jesus Christ, I don’t want my depression to last long. No, I want to overcome depression by a) realizing I choose my attitude, b) changing my expectations, and c) reclaiming a Biblical worldview.

My attitude is my choice

I must ask myself, “Am I unhappy because of my circumstances?” And “Am I unhappy because of other people?” If yes to either, I know I’m a victim of my own wrong thinking. Since even prideful people can train themselves to not depend on losses or other people’s opinions, then I can too. But I want to do better, by agreeing with Jesus Christ that my identity is in Him, and recommitting that I’m willing to suffer and die for Him. And then my cares tend to fade.

Applying this to the new White House occupant, I’m going to test myself whether I spend more time praising Jesus or worrying about Biden & Company. But avoiding worry doesn’t mean I avoid love or work. No, resisting fretting gives me more room in my mind and heart to love Jesus and love people. Saying no to worry actually helps me focus and energizes me to work with more urgency, insight, and creativity to defeat the New Communism that’s invaded the USA.

Changing my expectations

It’s a fact that we get the government we deserve. Because We the People ARE the government, and we elect “representatives” to work for us. And Americans have elected some secretaries of states and some county registrars of voters who engage in the unconstitutional, unfair, traitorous practice of election fraud.

We get the government we deserve because people who know what’s good, true, and right aren’t the authorities and gatekeepers that love their fellow man. Remember the biblical truism “You reap what you sow”? Most of America is sowing evil (putting their kids in government schools, seeking comfort at all costs, not loving one’s fellow man, worshiping feelings, and pursuing significance apart from God’s approval).

It’s also a spiritual reality that God is not blessing or protecting America, since His blessing is conditional. Creator God will not bless disobedience. And Americans are sinning against God big-time!

Another truth I must acknowledge is that Democrat politicians are professional liars. Therefore, we must not believe what they say, but watch what they do. I’m glad conservatives are transferring to alternative social media so they can expose these charlatans without having their accounts canceled.

Unfortunately, this unconstitutional “cancel culture” of the Democrats has been a long time coming. It’s a mark of Communism — which is merely totalitarianism disguised as populism — to prohibit dissent. That’s what Big Media does with their one-sided stories, what Big Tech and its Leftist allies are doing to “cancel” conservative voices, and what Biden & Company want to do by criminalizing free speech that they deem “political extremism,” “white supremacy,” and “domestic terrorism.” Their subjective definitions of these words and making themselves to be “the law” are a clear and present danger to half of all Americans.

Reclaiming a Biblical worldview

How can I be both positive and realistic? By reading God’s Word and believing it and living it. Here are five biblical truths to which I’m holding tight:

1. “Repent“: From Genesis to Revelation, Creator God wants each one of us to consider where we sin and turn from our wicked ways. In Revelation, Jesus Christ repeatedly calls on people created in His image to repent of their sins: “The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”

This means our work of informing people what’s right and what’s wrong will continue to the end. God’s love compels us to continue telling the truth, so that some people, some families, and some societies can change their minds. And Jesus really wants His Church to repent (Revelation 2 and 3). Real repentance would mean many things, including the Church becoming the most powerful force for good government.

2. “Light repels darkness”: The reason for election fraud is true Christians have not been shining their lights to become county registrars of voters and secretaries of states. As a result, people with darkened minds and hardened hearts attain power and become political prostitutes, selling out to the highest bidder. And yes, there are prostitutes in both political parties, as seen by “Republican” pro-lockdown county supervisors and “Republican” pro-impeachment-of-President-Trump members of Congress

The observed fact that light repels darkness means darkness will not depart voluntarily, but must be forcibly overcome. So, this year, biblical pastors and people with strong moral standards must rise up to fight evil with a concerted effort. And in states with Republican-controlled legislatures, ensuring election integrity must be Job #1. This means passing laws requiring strict photo ID and in-person voting and no more machines.

3. “Big lies eventually break down”: Sometimes it takes decades and generations, but lies eventually are rejected because they “just don’t work” for most people. Because a lie cannot survive a trial when the evidence of reality is thrown against it. Remember how Communism broke down in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. On our own soil, for the sake of religious liberty, the Plymouth Colony was founded in 1620. Then, in 1776, our Christian-based American Revolution rejected British tyranny and birthed our nation. So when thoughts and words — not actions — are punished, when property rights and religious freedom are oppressed, and when unnatural “sex” is forced in government schools nationally, reasonable people are going to rise up and reject the lies of the ruling Democrats. Because they want what works. So it’s up to you and me and others like us to constantly show the benefits of doing things God’s way, which is always good, right, and true.

4. “The future of the wicked shall be cut off”: Based on the principle found in Proverbs 37, I predict the ruling Democrats in Washington, D.C. will overdo it, offending most Americans. Control of both Congress and the White House is too tempting for the Radical Left. When they start imposing their lie-based agenda, making average Americans poorer and with fewer constitutional rights, it’s going to rub average persons the wrong way. This year and the 2022 election year, we need to expose the evil excesses of the ruling Democrats. Because the pain of the Democrat regime will be a historic chance for more people to become more conservative and vote better.

5. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever”: Based on this dependable, biblical truth. I want to sincerely submit to Jesus as my King to obey, whether a Democrat or Republican is in the White House. When loyal to King Jesus, the Savior of the world, I can be a faithful soldier who shines my light boldly, without fear of suffering or death. And I eagerly want to take more territory for Jesus Christ’s kingdom values!

My friend, I hope this has helped you think, have greater perspective and peace, and regain hope that you can make a positive impact — perhaps even more than ever — here in 2021.

Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.”
