You know that Christianity is in danger when the left sanctions Drag Queen Story Hour for toddlers and four-year-olds under the guise of gendered tolerance
This is the 3rd time I have seen you post this in your brief time here thus far on ATS.
I would recommend more honesty in your posts. As much as I love words, content is more important.
The incident you refer to was singular not trend or agenda.
It was not "sanctioned" by anyone other than a lone parent, not school or administrators.
The Parents complained, the school district and it's administrators condemned it as inappropriate, and the PTA parent who gave the surprise performance was reprimanded by the school.
Your bizarre repeated reference to this single incident that was condemned by all but the parent, not teacher, that surprised the audience with the performance, as some kind of global agenda to indoctrinate children is a false claim debunked by facts and reality.
Content. Honest content. Flowery language is just that.
Trump is a symptom. He is not the disease. As has been documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center and other watchdogs, Trump has inspired an outbreak of hate crimes and other violence against nonwhites, Muslims and other groups seen by his voters as being the Other. What role does violence play in Trump and the Republican Party's movement toward authoritarianism?
Violence is hugely important, because it is fear that creates the turning points which accelerate the larger negative trends. Fear can be associated with real existential threats or, alternatively, fear can be focused on fictional threats such as those posed by immigrants. The violence is generated by the supporters. An extreme right-wing movement mixes both. You have both an imaginary foe and real violence. We're in a situation like that right now.
There are other dimensions too. Wealth and income equality, for example, makes it hard for people to feel like they're living in the same society. At some level, that probably also contributes indirectly to violence.
The other thing is internet exposure. The internet helps accelerate this politics of "us and them." People see much more of the thing they hate on the internet than they do in real life, so you skip the stage where people talk to one another. You go straight from living in a kind of political fiction to carrying out real violence against real people.
I'm white and pay lower taxes, get more money back, pay lower business taxes, my portfolio is up 85% since Trump took office and my health care costs are lower.
My black friends ask me when this supposed race war the idiot leftists keep pushing is going to happen and they happen to be liberals.
Actually, the day after Trump took office my portfolio was up 267%. I trade options. If you don't know anything about options then you won't understand how geo politics can have an impact on massive price fluctuations especially in oil.
The race war is a common BS narrative of you leftist
I just like calling BS on people like you who are too blind to see that the BS you gulp down from the MSM is true.
I called you out on your BS with your link to a shill article from a shill website. You break glass but complain when you get cut. So typical of liberals these days.
Your "argument" of "I don't believe you" is as weightless as this thread.
The OP is a well known shill
