– The Democrats step up their attacks on American culture.

To use this segment in a Radio broadcast or Podcast, send TIM a request.

As most of you have heard by now, at the opening of the 117th Congress on Sunday, January 3rd, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), who also happens to be a United Methodist pastor, was asked to do the invocation at the start of the meeting, as is customary. However, he surprised a lot of people when he ended his prayer by saying “Amen and Awomen.” Awomen? I think this was done by design, not by accident, nor was it intended to be a joke. At first, this triggered a lot of puns, such as “A-moron,” and “Maniac” vs. “Wo-maniac,” and I’m sure we’ll hear many more in the days ahead.

The term “Amen” is gender neutral and is an ancient expression used by the Israelites to mean “it is true” or “so be it.” Frankly, “Awomen” is a nonsense word without meaning. Trying to introduce gender into the description simply doesn’t make sense.

There is something more sinister going on here. As part of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) agenda for the new Congress, she introduced and passed legislation to eliminate what the Democrats consider gender-specific terms, such as: “father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half-sister, grandson, or granddaughter.”

I interpret this as a refutation of the family unit. Are they trying to make us feel ashamed of our mother, father, and all our other relatives? Instead, the Speaker proposes to use more “inclusive” terms, such as, “parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild.” This is just plain silly, and something I certainly will not be adopting.

This reminds me of the Coneheads from Saturday Night Live who described themselves as “Parental Units” to their daughter Connie. Then again, the Coneheads introduced a lot of terms the Democrats would embrace, such as “Zythron the Insistent” (to supplant American historical figures), “Fiberglass” (something people like to bite), “consuming mass quantities” (of beer and eggs, a well balanced source of food), and of course “France” (a deceptive reference to their true love and home planet, “Remulak.”)

Is the Speaker suggesting the Ten Commandments is wrong when it states, “Honour thy father and thy mother”? Is she saying we should change it to “Honour thy Parental Units”? Maybe Democrats are nothing more than Coneheads in disguise. I am also confused on how she should be addressed; e.g., “Mister or Madam Speaker”? Perhaps, “Transgen Speaker”? How about her personal life, is she “Mr. or Mrs. Pelosi” or even “Ms.”?

Seriously, now that the Democrats are in control of the government, they are stepping up their war on American culture. This will include attacks on religion, history, vocabulary, family, race, and any group or person opposing their agenda. All of this is intended is to keep Americans in line, suppress independent thought, and promote Socialism.

As for me, I’ll borrow an expression from the late, great George M. Cohen, “My mother thanks you, my father thanks you, my sister thanks you, and I thank you.”

    “One of the things I appreciated most about getting an early admit to college is that I didn’t have to deal with the individuals in High School who did everything possible to get attention from their peers, anything controversial to stand out to make a statement and get attention from their peers and break rules with the expressed intent to get attention from their peers. And most of them were figure heads of student organizations capable of getting things moving in their direction to get attention from their peers.

    Then I started following politics and realized to my dismay that these same people never matured past their high school antics and they were now running the country.”

    This is such an ignorant move on the part of these idiots. Another term that has come up as of late is “LatinX.” This was invented because “latino” or “latina” seemed like gendered words (which they are) and offended these ignorant monolingual Americans. Spanish is a language in which every noun has a gender, and no Spanish speaker is offended by it. For those unenlightened who have never even taken Spanish I (which is sad if you live in Florida,) in the Spanish language, when a noun of any gender is pluralized and there are mixed genders, the default ending is the masculine form of the noun. A group of boys only would be “chicos,” a group of girls only would be “chicas,” but what about a group of girls AND boys? The rule in Spanish grammar is to default to the masculine ending, “chicos.” (I do have a minor in Spanish by the way.) So these liberals think it is offensive to use “latinos” to describe both men and women, so they invented “latinx,” which is also a meaningless nonsense word in any language. I am sure they are proud to have invented this New Speak, but anyone with any education can clearly see that it is a proud exclamation of their true ignorance.

    In German, Latin, and other languages, there are masculine, feminine, and neuter nouns, many of which have word roots in English that we use everyday. So we should really challenge these liberals to get their language right because they are using offensive gendered nouns all the time and don’t even know it! Take the word “cactus.” In Latin, words that end in “us” are feminine singular nouns and the correct pluralization ending is to replace the “us” with “i” in that language, hence the pluralization of “cactus” is “cacti.” I am sure liberals everywhere are offended on behalf of cacti in every desert because we English speakers refer to all of them as “cacti.”

    It is truly Orwellian of the American Left to desire to change the English language, nay, EVERY LANGUAGE EVER WRITTEN OR SPOKEN, to match their ideology of a genderless world. I, for one, will not be brainwashed by this type of “holier than thou political correctness.” Sadly, the next generation will be and America will continue its downward spiral into a nightmarish totalitarian system in which its citizens are punished for even having “thought crimes against the Party,” which is basically what Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon among others are already doing by banning anything that doesn’t jive with their agenda. Adios America! Oh, wait, that means “go with God” in Spanish, can’t use that one either because it might offend some atheist!

      As Alinsky stated, “control the language, you control the people.”
      ONLY if we let them.
      There is no position of compromise, or intelligent discourse, or worthy analysis of any of this Left neo-Marxist irrational gibberish.
      I reject the narrative. Punto final.
      Then listen to them descend into the ad hominem rants of the demented.
      Walk away.

    “Read the Holy Bible and it states That God created man and women. This was a fact back over 2000 years ago and is still a fact in 2021. It does not change because some idiots now are attempting to change what the Lord as said. They are trying to indoctrinate children to believe this. They are attempting to delete the Holy Bible to something else. NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN, the Holy Bible is the only book on earth that has never changed and will never change,”

    “Yes, it is very scary times. Where is GOD who put TRUMP in? 11Chronicles 7:14 has not been fulfilled. This means to me that GOD has abandoned us, because of these very evil people. Is it going to be like the 13 million Christians and the 6 million Jews in Germany? God please hep us I say, you put TRUMP in to SAVE America and now you have cut him off and all of all. I don’t understand as GOD was with my family when they fought the Revolutionary War to free America from our own evil. Does this mean we fight, and if so why not know so the military will be on our side?”

    In reference to Pelosi, I suggest the congress men and women refer to her as Nancy. She has never earned enough respect to have to worry about any other designation.


  9. Dr Latus Dextro said

    An axiom from Marcus Aurelius springs to mind:
    “The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape fining oneself in ranks of the insane.”

    Just keep in mind, the Left will not stop until it is stopped. When unchecked, it inevitably leads into a social, economic and biological dead-end. Just a tragedy we have to endure this calamity over and over again. The murderous failure of the Marx/Engels (1848) experiment is clear; it is time to expunge this morally bankrupt and evil ideology from civilised society.
