*Sephora, a beauty store/makeup shop, recently cut ties with beauty influencer Amanda Ensing…because she is a conservative. The outlet surrendered to leftist activists who were outraged that Ensing, in addition to her beauty content, had the temerity to mix in a few posts mentioning her garden-variety conservative beliefs, including support for the Second Amendment. Sephora quickly abandoned the Republican, saying she “shared content on social media that is not aligned with Sephora’s values around inclusivity.” Sephora failed to mention that its professed fondness for inclusivity does not encompass those who may have somewhat differing political viewpoints.
*The Black Lives Matter “organization” has caused nearly $2 billion in damages to cities across the fruited plane since late May of 2020. In Minneapolis alone, crazed BLM mobs damaged or destroyed over 700 buildings and 1,500 businesses. Many hundreds of police officers have been injured in BLM riots and 25 people have been killed. So, naturally, on January 29th, Black Lives Matter was nominated for—you guessed it—a Nobel Peace prize. In his nomination papers, Norwegian MP Petter Eide said the movement had forced countries outside the US to grapple with the racism within their own societies, stating, “I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America, but also in Europe and Asia, is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality. Black Lives Matter has become a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice. They have had a tremendous achievement in raising global awareness and consciousness about racial injustice.” Whether they have raised consciousness is debatable, but they have unquestionably razed buildings. And hopes. Perhaps Eide will soon find the courage to posthumously nominate Adolf Hitler for a Nobel peace prize, as well. I mean, he at least secured the 1938 Munich Agreement. In point of fact, Hitler was nominated for a Nobel…in 1939. But it was meant as a bitter joke. The nomination of BLM, while bitter, is anything but a joke.
*Heavy snow in the northeastern part of the U.S. has triggered some school districts to cancel their virtual schooling. How can this be you ask, since no one has to drive or even step outside of their homes? It used to be that kids would do anything to try to get out of going to school. Today, it is teachers who skip out on the kids. Cancel virtual schooling? Cancelling virtual reality will be next. And then cancelling actual reality. And then? This is what happens when citizens allow leftists to take positions of power and control. 1984 didn’t occur in 1984 because Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul II didn’t let it happen. It is happening now. That is a reality that I fervently wish could be cancelled.
