The terrorist slaughter of Jewish civilians, including women, children, and the aged, has torn the masks off of many people with dark impulses.
We’ve had some of the darling institutions of the Left openly embracing the slaughter, rape, burning alive, and hostage-taking of both Israelis and foreigners who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Groups like BLM who have fomented plenty of violence and destruction while bilking corporations out of money seem like a natural ally of such people. We were not especially surprised to see them elevating the terrorists to ‘hero status’. That crowd has long since shown its true colors.
Colleges, on the other hand, are supposed to be repositories of higher learning and the liberal values that allow countries as diverse as those in the West to continue to function with our neighbors.
They are not supposed to be whipping up crowds into cheering for the barbaric acts of terrorism instigated on unsuspecting neighbors. People who throw thermite bombs into the private residences of ordinary farmers are NOT the good guys in any story.
But when tenured profs make indefensible statements in support of Hamas, we usually hear the same response. “They have protected free speech.”
Do they? Because Piers Morgan had the top dog at the Daily Wire — Jeremy Boering — on his show talking about exactly that issue, and Boering made a great point.
Paraphrasing: if that same prof said anything in defense of the traditional understanding of sex and gender he’d be out on his ass in a heartbeat.
“If what that professor had said instead is that gender and biological sex are inextricably linked he’d be out on the streets by now and never work again. Instead, he says that it’s exhilarating to watch children murdered in their homes because of some sort of bizarre academic… pic.twitter.com/bGMQYFShHH

This isn’t just an abstract question, either.
The cancel culture mob came for Mike Adams because he tweeted something that offended them.
They were so ruthless in their condemnation of him — over a TWEET objecting to the draconian COVID lockdown laws that compared the authoritarian government overreach that micromanaged the lives of supposedly free citizens to a slaveholder’s unlawful authority to own a slave.
The Mike Adams story matters to us more than most because he was a friend of the Clash team. All of us had met him on at least one occasion, and our site owner knew him personally.
It wasn’t enough that they demanded Mike’s firing over a tweet, or that he got a pittance of a severance package. They kept coming after him to destroy and defame him. In the end, the monsters won.
After they had taken most everything else from him, Mike Adams took his own life.
Mike Adams’s tenure never shielded him from the wrath of the culture mob. Why should any special protections be extended to those who dance on the corpses of murdered Jewish families in the biggest pogrom the world has seen since the days when smoke was still coming from the chimneys in the Nazi Death camps?
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
