means, unbelievable enough, that Americans are still
strongly resistant to the kind of collectivist, subservient
mindset that is rampant in an ever-diminishing Europe. It
means that while Americans are not exactly of the hearty
19th century settler style anymore, we still value our
individualism and liberties and recognize America truly is
an exceptional nation.

college campus, public schools, Hollywood and the music
industry are all hardcore Leftist institutions and have been
for many decades. Their propaganda has driven enormously
damaging trends in the country and the acceptance of
self-harming activities as normal.
even with this tsunami of public movers, Leftist core ideals
seem unable to ratchet off course the basic metal of the
average American. Consider, at this moment, the President of
the United States is Republican, the U.S. Senate is
Republican, the U.S. House is Republican, 32 state
legislatures are Republican and 33 governors are Republican.
At every level of government, Republicans have majorities.
They may not be all that conservatives want, but they are

however, with new technologies, another wave of Leftist
inculcation of the masses is apparent in the big social
media conglomerates. Facebook, Youtube and Twitter have all
been more and more openly putting their fingers on the
scales to favor liberal content creators. And, much more
actively and effectively as a propaganda tool, they are
suppressing opposing views of conservative creators.
instance, Youtube last year began the adpocolypse,
demonetizing conservative sites so no ads would show, and
further, restricting their viewing. This included such
mainstream conservative sites as PragerU, which is suing the
giant video-sharing platform. Now, however, Youtube has gone
further by actually closing accounts, in the beginning of

These have been mostly alt right accounts, but they also

activity by the social media giants all falls under the
rubric of “offensive speech” policies. These policies are
heavily tilted toward liberal speech only. Anything
anti-Muslim is offensive speech, anything anti-Christian is
free speech. Opposition to normalizing gender confusion is
offensive speech, pro gender confusion is free speech. You
get it. Needless to say, liberal accounts are largely
unaffected, which is the point of these policies.
has been doing it longer. Facebook was caught cooking its
“trending” list into liberal trending, and now they and
others are trying to clamp down on “fake news.” Of course,
fake news is almost totally subjective. So they are using
liberal dominated organizations such as Politifact, Snopes
and the extremist leftist organization Southern Poverty Law
Center (which considers organizations with traditional
Christian beliefs as hate groups) to determine what is fake

and Christian movies consistently do very well, despite
being constrained by lack of capital, advertising and screen
showings. American patriotism — at its best representing the
unique goodness that is America, even with all her flaws —
still thrives. Christianity has not yet gone the way of
Europe and remains a mighty force in American life.

onslaught on the culture.
