Social Justice “Protesters” Threaten to Burn Down People’s Houses

From a source that quotes a NYT article (which is behind a paywall):

“It went from a peaceful march, calling out the names, to all of a sudden, bang, ‘How dare you fly the American flag?’” said Mr. Moses, who is Black and runs a nonprofit group in the Portland, Ore., area. “They said take it down. They wouldn’t leave. They said they’re going to come back and burn the house down.”

Mr. Moses and others blocked the demonstrators and told them to leave.

“We don’t go around terrorizing folks to try and force them to do something they don’t want to do,” said Mr. Moses, whose nonprofit group provides support for local homeless people. “I’m a veteran. I’m for these liberties.”

When the “protesters” supposedly protest in people’s neighorhoods, I don’t think this is true protesting.  I think it is an intimidation tactic, like bullying.  It’s not hard to envision these protesters committing crimes against humanity.

Social Justice Leader Commits Crimes Against Humanity

According to the NYT:

There is nothing new here.  But apparently, it got so bad and so obvious that even the UN had to admit the criminal nature of this social justice regime.

Yet I would point out that Maduro is cut from the same cloth as today’s social justice activist.  They all fervently believe in “social justice” and the ends justify the means, so if you have to commit crimes against humanity to bring about social justice, equality, and the end of racism, then so be it.  The only significant difference between Maduro and organizations like BLM and Antifa is that the former has more power than the others.  Give BLM or Antifa Manduro’s level of power and they would be behind the detention, torture and killing of their critics.  If you doubt me, entertain us by denying this below.  Remember that you are defending organizations that cheer on the death of Trump supporters and the police.  Ends justify the means.

Of course, if you are supportive of BLM or Antifa, I have to wonder what your problem is.  Me?  I steer clear of groups and beliefs that end up committing crimes against humanity.

More Social Justice Violence

More evidence of the violent nature of today’s “social justice” activists.

First, we have the atheist professor who advocates the public execution of people he disagrees with:

More protests and riots, please. Tumbrels and guillotines, too. Écrasez l’infâme. Tear down the criminal regime and it’s lackeys.

Then we have the prominent social justice activist who apparently has a history of beating women:

The prominent Portland-based activist was outed for previously being arrested and jailed on suspicion of strangling and kidnapping his ex-girlfriend six years ago, a Wednesday article in The Oregonian revealed.

McKelvey is one of the most prominent social justice activists in Portland, first emerging in the city’s politics in 2016 as a vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders, and then later as a figurehead in the Portland’s Black Lives Matter movement.

He is the co-founder of Portland’s Resistance, whose leader—a sex offender named Micah Rhodes—was charged with sexually abusing a minor in 2017.

And we have video of the “peaceful protesters” in action:

The Dark Side of Gregg Caruso’s Free Will Denialism

Gregg Caruso, a philosophy professor at Corning Community College, gave a talk about the “Dark Side” of Free Will. In doing so, I think he lets the cat out of the bag, showing that free will deniers come to us with a socio-political agenda.

Caruso has a slide that outlines the “Dark Side” (shown around 3 minutes into the talk). It reads:

The Dark Side

Free will beliefs are correlated with

Religiosity
Punitiveness
Just World Belief
Right Wing Authoritarianism

Whoa! “Religiosity” is the “Dark Side.” It looks like the professor is peddling the “Religion is Evil” talking point of the New Atheist movement. As for “Right Wing Authoritarianism,” does this mean Left Wing Authoritarianism is correlated with a lack of belief in free will? Or maybe for the professor, there is no such thing as Left Wing Authoritarianism.

Anyway, the professor didn’t want to talk about those two little hand grenades and instead focused on punitiveness and just world belief. I didn’t watch the just world belief part of the talk, so I can’t comment on that.

So Now It Is Racist to Own a Dog

According to an article from United Wildlife:

If you are white and own a dog, you are openly participating and advocating for cultural appropriation and colonialism. Reinforcing this culture is NOT acceptable and will come with its repercussions.

Dogs are and always will be the living reminder of how tainted our history is as a whole. POC deserve to exclusively own dogs as a form of restitution for their stolen ancestor’s work. Supporting the idea of white dog ownership is spitting on the grave of past POC generations.

This argument is so deeply nonsensical that I can conclude one of two possibilities:

1. Cadye-6 is a hoaxster, meaning United Wildlife really has no credibility.
2. Cayde-6 is sincere, in which case, it shows how social justice ideology leads to mental illness.

Antifa Now Killing People

Three years ago, I warned about the way social justic advocates embrace violence:

There is yet another route for the slippery slope to travel.  Why stop with punching a nazi when the same logic works for killing a nazi?  If we are to punch nazis to keep from from acquiring power, killing nazis would seem to be even more effective.

And today they are murdering and cheering about it:

Sender and Receivers

Atheist Bob Seidensticker tells us, “If Christianity Were True, There Wouldn’t Be So Many Denominations.”  He then explains, “A perfect creator should be able to accurately convey his perfect message to the people he created. And yet, somehow, he can’t. It’s not looking good for God.”

Color me unimpressed.  Basics of communication – there are two core components.  Sender.  And receiver.  You need both.  If you have a perfect sender that sends out the perfect message to a busted receiver, there is no communication.  And it would be stupid to blame the sender for the receivers inability to receive.

So missing from Seidensticker is a demonstration.  Of what?  Of the receiver’s impressive ability to receive.  He merely assumes the receiver would receive a perfect message perfectly.  Yet one thing I have learned from experience with countless humans, secular and Christian, is that humans are terrible at reception.

Protesters Gone Violent

The title of this article says it all:

Portland Rioters Attempt to Murder Man Who Intervened In Their Robbery and Assault of a White Trans Person

So the protesters are now “transphobic.”  Hypocrites.

Drag Queen Story Hour Promotes Pedophilia

I’m shocked:

The “Drag Queen Story Hour U.K.” Twitter account recently posted a tweet that many users deemed pedophilic. The group subsequently deleted the tweet and locked their account after pushback.

Atheism, Social Justice, and the Id

Previously I noted how the thinking of a typical social justice advocate seems to be rooted in subjectivity and emotion.  I think this insight helps us to better understand the social justice crowd, but I think we can also dive deeper than this.  To help, let me dust off some old ideas from Sigmund Freud:

 Perhaps Freud’s single most enduring and important idea was that the human psyche (personality) has more than one aspect. Freud (1923) saw the psyche structured into three parts (i.e. tripartite), the id, ego and superego, all developing at different stages in our lives. These are systems, not parts of the brain, or in any way physical.

Now, I am not proposing we consider Freud’s ideas as scientific.  But they do seem to function quite well as useful metaphors when looking in on the postmodernists.  For consider just how uncanny it is that the description of the id maps so well to the postmodern social justice movement:

 According to Freud’s model of the psyche, the id is the primitive and instinctual part of the mind that contains sexual and aggressive drives….. The id is the primitive and instinctive component of personality. It consists of all the inherited (i.e. biological) components of personality present at birth, including the sex (life) instinct – Eros (which contains the libido), and the aggressive (death) instinct – Thanatos.

If you ponder the morality of the social justice crowd, it does indeed seem that the lion’s share stems from both the sexual and aggressive drives.
