ONE OF THE Moon goals is to raise the level of international consciousness. At times this can be done with videos. Personally, I prefer brief videos like this one.
I watch this fellow most every morning. He’s in Sweden, and his YouTube channel is called Sanity for Sweden. But he’s broadened his scope considerably beyond Sweden, and he speaks English quite well and calmly.
Seven centuries ago, he would have been a Viking. His name is Stefan though it could just as easily been Hendrik or Gottfrid.
He’s almost always sitting with a black shirt and vest in front of a stack of firewood. It gets cold in Sweden, of course. The only time I’ve seen him elsewhere was once in his barn sitting in front of an old tractor.
The reason I’m presenting this particular video is his addressing an issue of the U.S. political conflict, especially the #WalkAway movement which, apparently, and I did not know this, the leftists claim is a Russian hoax. Ha! And he speaks too of a longtime Democrat who, out of rare curiosity, decided to attend a Trump rally and what happened.
It started for me in 2007 when it came to light that the Obamas had sat for 20 years in the church of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, he of the “Goddamn America” sermon. Wright was quickly muzzled by Obama’s handlers.
It went downhill from there between me and the Democrat Party for which my entire family had proudly voted for decades.
There was Political Correctness, that ham-fisted ideology that blossomed in the 1990s and just got worse. Later, the lunacy kicked in. Putting fat gals in the Swimsuit Edition of Sports Illustrated in the name of “equality.” Obesity is a serious health issue, not something to be glorified. Obesity isn’t just another valid lifestyle choice.
And there is Cancel Culture. Share our opinion or be fired. From the disturbing, it’s descended into madness. Take Aunt Jemima off the syrup jar. Change the names of sports teams. Don black clothing and masks to march and riot in the streets.
Can’t dress like Pancho Villa for Halloween unless you’re Mexican. Actors can’t play disabled people in movies unless they are themselves disabled.
Last night at the restarting of the NBA games, every player and coach on both teams, 100 percent, took to their knees before the national anthem, thumbing their noses at the flag of the nation that made them wealthy and privileged.
Conservatives are squelched online by Big Tech. Black Lives Matter — which consists to a great degree of white leftists whose aim is Marxism, a word they wisely removed from their website not long ago — still laughably states on its website:
We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family.
The film classic Gone With the Wind is blocked from online streaming. Statues are toppled, not just of Gen. Robert E. Lee but the Great Emancipator Abraham Lincoln himself, which demonstrates a dizzying level of ignorance.
Speaking of nincompoopery, here’s a very smart and brave girl who goes by Cringe Panda online. Her internet fame has skyrocketed since the first of the year. Watch her address the appalling state of public education.
No need to watch the entire thing. The first five minutes will educate you.
All of the above and much more flows totally from the left side of the political divide, those people who vote Democrat. All of it, 100 percent.
And if you are unaware of the things I mentioned, consider finding news sources other than The New York Times, Washington Post, Huffpost and MSNBC.
You’re being duped.
If you are aware of the things I mentioned, and you still vote Democrat, that is far worse, and I’m ashamed of you. But let’s move on to:
The presumed Democrat presidential nominee is that hated thing, an old white man, and decades-long political hack. How did this happen?
It happened because actual Democrat voters, most of whom are not Marxists, participated in the primary elections, and apparently grass-roots Democrats were not happy with the radical choices they saw on the debate stages. Every Democrat, for instance, raised a hand when asked if they supported “free” healthcare for illegal aliens. Even Joe.
Voters opted for the old shoe they knew, smelly as it is.
Tulsi Gabbard, the best of the sorry lot, would have shot her candidacy skyward had she the bravery to leave her hand down to the question of healthcare for illegals. The move would have stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb but in a positive way. She killed her chances with that one raise of the arm.
She was the only one who had a prayer of beating Trump.
He will nominate a radical woman “of color” because the leftist party bosses have him by the short hairs. He’ll do anything to be president. He’d get on all fours and bark.
Take a close look at the vice-presidential nominee, and think hard about how Democrats are running cities and states these days. The riots, lawlessness, Antifa, BLM, high taxes, vagrancy, high-priced housing, tent cities, and so on.
Again, if you’re unaware of these things, consider finding news sources other than The New York Times, Washington Post, Huffpost and MSNBC.
You’re being duped.
Consider doing what I did in 2007: Leave the Democrat Party.
First off, there’s the video above, less than three minutes for the attention-challenged, in which Fox commentator Tucker Carlson addresses the issue of The New York Times’ planning to dox him. That means print his home address so radicals can threaten his family. Carlson already was forced to move not that long ago due to an assault on his home by Antifa, the Black Shirt arm of today’s Democrat Party.
For those who still maintain the NYT is the Old Gray Lady of Journalism, well, there is no hope for you. By the way, The Washington Post is no better.
Recall that editorialist Bari Weiss, who recently resigned from the NYT, cited “the new McCarthyism (that) has taken root at the paper.” Click here for that.
It boggles the mind. A major newspaper that wants to incite violence against a public figure who holds opinions it disagrees with.
And then there is Michelle Malkin, a conservative pundit and “woman of color,” who was attacked by the Black Shirt arm of the Democrat Party while attending a pro-police rally Sunday in Denver. The police, ironically, did little to protect her which is not surprising since the Denver police chief has kneeled in support of Black Lives Matter.
Malkin survived intact, thankfully.
Lastly, teen hysteric Greta Thunberg has been awarded a 1 million Euro prize from something called the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation for her “contributions” in the fight against climate change. That’s $1,151,675 in U.S. dollars and over 25 million Mexican pesos, so we’re talking some serious moola here. Greta’s parents gotta be grinning.
Michelle Malkin Tweeted following her Denver visit: “I’m okay. America isn’t.”
Let’s broaden that: Much of the Western World isn’t.
That part north of the equator.

(Update: It appears the NYT changed its evil mind about printing Tucker’s home address.)
I’VE NEVER recommended a movie here before, but today I will.
It’s titled Uncle Tom, and it’s a work by black conservative Larry Elder, one of the smartest men you’ll ever encounter, and others. Here’s how the filmmakers describe the movie:
In a collection of intimate interviews with some of America’s most provocative black conservative thinkers, Uncle Tom takes a different look at being black in America. Featuring media personalities, ministers, civil rights activist, veterans, and a self-employed plumber, the film explores their personal journeys of navigating the world as one of America’s most misunderstood political and cultural groups: The American Black Conservative.
In this eye-opening film from Director Justin Malone and Executive Producer Larry Elder, Uncle Tom examines self-empowerment, individualism and rejecting the victim narrative. Uncle Tom shows us a different perspective of American History from this often ignored and ridiculed group.
It’s an online movie that lasts 145 minutes. Here’s a brief preview. It costs about $20, but with the discount code Brandon, it’s just $16.
It’s a refreshing look at a growing element in the black community and a great antidote to clips of race-hucksters like Al Sharpton and looters of Targets and Walmarts.
