Juxtaposed with the war on history and the Confederate flag, it becomes obvious we are in deep doo.
In my original post of April 27th I said:
It couldn't happen here? Oh, yes it can, and it is happening.If you think this has nothing to do with you, you may want to think it through a bit more thoroughly. There is a war being waged on Christians and if you consider yourself a Christian, you are in the cross hairs. Next up will be an attack on the churches. Notice these vile creeps never go after a Muslim bakery or florist?
This case is so horrendously awful, I never thought it could get worse. But it can, and it did.
Don't you dare say anything against our newest protected class or you will not only be made to care, you will be made to pay, and you will be made to shut up about your beliefs. This is how libtards show their tolerance, openness, and caring.
They are driven to this behavior because deep down they know the truth. Like my troll, they know they are losers and the only way they have to fight back is through slander, hate, and declaring to the world how special they are, and how evil Christians and conservatives are.
These are the ones who cheer the slaughter of infants in the womb, if it causes an inconvenience, but rail against the death penalty. They're the ones who want to tax the job creators and suppliers out of business, and the ones who demand we drive electric cars and turn off our air conditioners.
Is this recent declaration by the Supreme Court on homosexual "marriage" going to be the beginning of the biggest push-back since April 19th, 1775?
Oregon imposes gag order on Christian bakers in gay wedding case:
I don’t know if you’ve followed the case of Sweet Cakes by Melissa. This is the now-closed bakery in Oregon that has become a target of state officials because its Christian owners declined to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding.
Not only has the business been forced to close, the state has fined the Kleins $135,000. But it gets worse. Much worse. Now the state has responded to a radio interview the Kleins gave by ordering them to no longer talk publicly about why their faith compels them to decline such business.
We’ve been telling you for some time now that this gay wedding business is little more than a cover for Fascism. Some of you thought that was way overblown. Can you still doubt it after this?And what of the response of Aaron Klein via TheBlaze:
In the ruling, Avakian placed an effective gag order on the Kleins, ordering them to “cease and desist” from speaking publicly about not wanting to bake cakes for same-sex weddings based on their Christian beliefs.
“This effectively strips us of all our First Amendment rights,” said the Kleins, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, which has since closed, on their Facebook page. “According to the state of Oregon, we neither have freedom of religion nor freedom of speech.”
The cease and desist order came about after Aaron and Melissa Klein participated in an interview with Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins. During the interview, Aaron said among other things, “This fight is not over. We will continue to stand strong.”
Lawyers for plaintiffs, Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, argued that in making this statement, the Kleins violated an Oregon law banning people from acting on behalf of a place of public accommodation (in this case, the place would be the Kleins’ former bakery) to communicate anything to the effect that the place of public accommodation would discriminate.
The specific order reads: “The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries hereby orders [Aaron and Melissa Klein] to cease and desist from publishing, circulating, issuing or displaying, or causing to be published … any communication to the effect that any of the accommodations … will be refused, withheld from or denied to, or that any discrimination be made against, any person on account of their sexual orientation.” read the rest
“He wants to silence anyone who opposes his point of view,” Klein told TheBlaze, speaking specifically about Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian, who has spearheaded the case against the couple. “Unfortunately, he’s doing this with the wrong Christian, because I fight back.”
Klein also delivered a message to Americans and business leaders about why he believes that his case is monumentally important.
“For years, we’ve heard same-sex marriage will not affect anybody,” he said. “I’m here firsthand to tell everyone in America that it has already impacted people. Christians, get ready to take a stand. Get ready for civil disobedience.”
Klein said he and his wife will request a stay in an effort to delay the order, which he said requires them to immediately cut a $135,000 check to Rachel Cryer-Bowman and Laurel Bowman-Cryer, the couple who were refused a cake by the bakery. He also said that the appeals process will likely be undertaken.
“It has the potential to financially ruin our family … [Avakian] knew that full well going into this,” Klein said of the massive sum they have been mandated to pay after citing their Christian views in declining the cake. “He did not seek business assets, he sought personal property.”
Klein, who is a Christian and a father of five, said that he doesn’t think the timing of the case is a surprise either — the official ruling came just days after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide. read the restOn this, the eve of Independence Day, it is time for you to declare your independence. It is time to stand up and say, "I've had enough, and I'm not going to take it anymore." Are you going to stand by and allow the fascist left to destroy your history, your monuments, and your free speech? Are you going to be a free man or a slave?
Allow me to reprint a comment I read earlier today at SBPDL:
I have broken it into paragraphs for ease of reading.
We are witnessing destruction.
Destruction of history--the memory hole now exists along with the "party" that controls it.
Destruction of wealth as private property becomes the property of the "king" once more.
Destruction of knowledge as the most ignorant, reactionary and non-productive become little tyrants, crying in their cradles with a nanny state that says slavery to the state is legal, and you will feed them under threat of death.
Destruction of agency, as dependency and fear have replaced self-reliance and responsibility.
Destruction of truth, as the truth is inconvenient and must be replaced by the self-created reality of the controllers.
Destruction of health, as an populace more constrained and poisoned by the mass-controlled food and drink they consume get ever less nutrition, rest, or sleep than any generation before it.
Destruction of life, as the cult of death in all its forms: perversion, apathy, degeneracy, theft, violence, hedonism, solipsism, and lying become the means by which unsound and corrupt people maintain their positions and lifestyles at the expense of their fellows.
Destruction of freedom, as the ability to travel, speak, write, associate, work, think, or dissent becomes a phantom of some poorly-recalled past that fades as the new generations grow up not even knowing these things, let alone remembering them.

And if this hasn't gone on long enough, take a few more minutes and listen to Bill Whittle give you the history of the Democrat party. It will give you fuel to be on the offensive. Never, ever allow yourself to be on the defensive. You set the parameters of any discussion you may be sadly called to have with a hateful libtard.
