Writer and media host Candace Owens, who is Black, received a photo of a Ku Klux Klan hood on Twitter. When Owens reported the clear hate crime to Twitter, she received this response:

“Hello, We’re writing to let you know that after reviewing the available information, we didn’t find a violation of our rules in the content you reported. We appreciate that you let us know what happened, and encourage you to reach out again in the future if you see any potential violations.”

The hate crime aggressor, Liam O’Mara happens to be not only a White male but also a Democratic House candidate. O’Mara was responding to a tweet made by Owens which stated the “#1 violent offenders against black people are other black people. The #1 violent offenders against Asian Americans are also black people. But both #BlackLivesMatter and #AsianLivesMatter are campaigns dedicated to stomping out white supremacy because clown world.”

O’Mara responded to Owens, saying, “Yikes. You may’ve dropped this” and included a photo of a chilling white Ku Klux Klan hood. O’Mara also wrote in another tweet, “whole lot of interesting comments here that read like the ‘cancel culture’ gripes we keep seeing from the right. Each miss the point that Candace is recycling explicitly white supremacist arguments. I study extremist rhetoric for a living, and this stuff is really dangerous.”

On Tuesday, Owens tweeted a screengrab of O’Mara’s KKK tweet alongside the official notification from Twitter that O’Mara had not violated its rules. “For everyone that is suing @Twitter for clear cut bias – they have written to me to let me know that sending Klansmen hoods to black people does not violate any of their rules. Racism is okay on this platform. Thanks @TwitterSafety!”

As of Wednesday morning, if not earlier, O’Mara’s Twitter account @LiamOMaraIV is no longer in existence.

    I love Candace. What a gorgeous, brilliant courageous and accomplished woman. If only we had thousands more of brave black independent voices of reason who can articulate the truth about the Left’s manure they have been feeding the African Community for decades now. Slowing they are waking up to the left “victimization” BS and “whites hate you” racism to divide this country. Leo is a man that I have much respect for. He and Candace and many other brilliant black leaders like Vernon Jones, Senator Tim Scott and others. Much respect for all of your voices pushing back on the radical left. I’m tired of being called a racist because I don’t buy into their doctrine or CRT. BTW, my daughter in law according the left is about to deliver her 2nd white supremacist baby. God bless you all.

    Twitter will cover their own asses when it’s in their best interests. But they push the envelope to the very end of the leftist extreme.

      This is just more proof that the Democrats get to play by a completely different set of rules! Rules are for thee and not for me! That’s what the Democrats go by!

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

Published

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
