Gallup Survey Shows Americans Becoming More Accepting of Moral Degeneracy

You may recall a group in the 1980s fronted by the Reverend Jerry Falwell called the Moral Majority.

Today it would have to be renamed the Moral Minority.

Americans today accept acts that my grandmother and her religious leaders would have condemned. In fact, much of what is acceptable today would have not even crossed my grandmother’s mind. She read the Bible every day and attended church at least three times a week.

Let’s remember that until the Supreme Court’s Lawrence decision in 2003 that homosexual acts were illegal in Texas (and some other states as well).

Not everyone on the alt-right is a traditionalist, but many of us are. We’ve lost the battle to preserve almost everything traditional, but maybe not the war, as society slowly falls apart while living on fake Federal Reserve money. When the big financial crisis hits, there will be nothing like the mother of all economic collapses to bring back traditionalism.

Over the past decade and a half, tolerance for polygamy has more than doubled among the American public. A similar trend applies to human cloning.

Stunning as they are, these findings from the latest Gallup survey of moral opinion in the U.S. may tell more about the political future than the daily drama surrounding President Donald Trump.

To be sure, the percentage declaring polygamy and human cloning “morally acceptable,” in Gallup’s phrase, remains small: Seventeen percent are OK with the former; 14 percent, the latter. Neither is likely to become legal soon.

Yet the speed with which these formerly fringe ideas have moved toward the mainstream is significant and consistent with Gallup’s broader finding: Since 2001, there has been a clear and, apparently, irreversible, move toward more permissive or, to use Gallup’s word, “liberal” social norms.

“Libertarian” might be a better term. Gallup documents what can only be called a strong live-and-let-live consensus regarding several practices — birth control, divorce, sex between unmarried adults, gay or lesbian relations, out-of-wedlock childbearing — that within living memory were either fiercely contested or taboo. All garnered at least 62 percent acceptance in the poll, conducted just a month ago. Doctor-assisted suicide is trending up and now stands at 57 percent acceptance.

Taboos are weakening against pornography (acceptance up six points to 36 percent since 2011) and sex between teenagers (acceptance up four points to 36 percent since 2013). Meanwhile, new taboos are developing against wearing fur and medical testing on animals. Only adultery remains as unacceptable as in 2001; just 9 percent tolerate it.

In short, the culture wars may be ending in victory for progressives, with the caveat that a left-right frame is misleading regarding some issues — opposition to pornography, for example, has been a rare point of agreement between the religious right and left-wing feminists.

Americans are not only far more willing to countenance formerly taboo practices, they are also much less interested in government protection of “traditional values” than they were in the not-so-distant past.

It has been six years since another poll, by CNN/ORC, found for the first time that more Americans said the government should “not favor any set of values” rather than “promote traditional values.”

As of the most recent poll, in late 2014, 55 percent preferred a value-neutral government. No one would have predicted that just after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when CNN/ORC found that 59 percent of Americans favored government promotion of traditional values, an all-time high.

Maybe that galvanizing moment gave way to the multiple disappointments and disillusions of the Iraq war and the financial crisis, which in turn bred broader doubts about government’s ability to do anything right, let alone foster moral values, and perhaps about the values themselves.

Another explanation, though, is that Gallup’s numbers confirm a long-standing postwar trend first identified by political scientist Ronald Inglehart of the University of Michigan, who has argued that Western societies’ turn from traditional values to individual autonomy and self-expression reflects their growing economic security, notwithstanding periodic wars and recessions.

The satisfaction of basic material needs, on a consistent basis, provides time and space for cultural, sexual and spiritual experimentation. Conversely, Inglehart has argued, members of society who feel least secure, materially and otherwise, continue to derive meaning from tradition and react against perceived threats to it emanating from the political sphere.

One interpretation of the overwhelming support of the country’s most religious, tradition-minded voters for a thrice-married, hedonistic tycoon is that it demonstrates their desperation to stop the progressive cultural wave.

Then again, data from Gallup and other sources show such wide moral acceptance of nontraditional norms that the new consensus must include plenty of Trump voters as well. The main exceptions to that consensus are abortion and gun control, about which a relatively even and highly partisan divide persists — and which candidate Trump exploited to win over red-state voters who might otherwise have distrusted him.

Jews in academia and media preaching tolerance for every vice and hatred for every virtue are not even mentioned in any of the analyses of moral degeneracy you’ll see in the MSM. I’m sure Professor Inglehard thinks he’s on to something with his economic theory of vice, and there’s probably some truth to it, but to ignore the Jewish role in perversion and degeneracy is disingenuous.

FBI: Nearly Three Times More People Stabbed to Death Than Killed With Rifles, Shotguns Combined

jews gun control ted nugent

Banning assault weapons is based on a fraudulent premise. But that’s not going to stop Hillary Clinton from doing a gun grab.

When Hillary says that no one needs a so-called assault weapon what she’s really saying is that the hard tyranny that she and her (((supporters))) desire would be so much easier to accomplish with a disarmed population.

Although liberals never listen to facts, here they are anyway.

Breitbart

The FBI’s 2015 Uniform Crime Report (UCR) shows nearly three times more people were stabbed or hacked to death than were killed with rifles and shotguns combined.

Breitbart News previously reported this UCR shows nearly twice as many people were beaten to death with “hands, fists, feet, etc.” in 2015 than were killed with rifles of any kind.

According to the FBI, the number of people killed with rifles and shotguns in 2015 totals approximately 548. Nearly three times that many, approximately 1,573, were stabbed or hacked to death.

These facts are especially interesting when you consider that the Democrats emerged from the Sandy Hook Elementary attack with a plan to ban numerous rifles, politically categorized “assault weapons,” and certain shotguns as well. But these efforts are misplaced, at best, if the FBI’s numbers are to be trusted.

While Democrats are pushing an “assault weapons” ban that covers certain shotguns, more than three times as many Americans were killed via stabbing or hacking than from all types of rifles and shotguns combined. And nearly twice as many Americans were simply beaten to death with “hands, fists, feet, etc.” than were shot and killed with rifles of any kind.

They’ve fooled the public into thinking that a military style weapon has no business being in private hands. Once the assault rifle is banned, then more weapons (and ammo) will be taxed, banned, and regulated out of existence. An unarmed population is then at their mercy. That’s why there’s a Second Amendment.

School Orders Student Opposed to Gun Control to be Psychologically Evaluated

FRANK HARVEY. SCHOOL OFFICIALS CONSIDERED HIM DANGEROUS.
frank harvey

Young Frank Harvey is a man of principle.

He won’t be going back to school after school officials demonized him for doing a class assignment that showed that guns save lives.

Instead, he’s working on his GED.

Frank probably doesn’t realize it, but he’s just a pawn in the New World Order game to enslave us. A key plank in the leftist framework is to demonize people as mentally ill when their way of thinking deviates from the (((globalist))) agenda.

Anti-gun-control video project gets H.S. student suspended

MANVILLE — A high school senior says he was suspended and ordered to undergo a psychological exam for completing an anti-gun-control school project he was assigned.

Manville school officials ordered a student who made an anti-gun control video to undergo a psychological evaluation before being allowed back in class, according to a report.

Frank Harvey said a Manville High School teacher instructed him to create a video arguing against gun control for a junior college readiness class last year, according to News 12 New Jersey.

Harvey produced a video that provided examples of people who used guns to defend themselves from home invaders, the report said. His video also displayed anti-gun-control political cartoons.

The teenager ran into trouble when he mistakenly left the thumb drive with the project on it in a computer in the school library. Someone found it and turned it over to the school administration, who then contacted police.

Manville police cleared Harvey but district officials suspended him and said he’d have to undergo a five-hour evaluation before being allowed back in school because the teacher said she didn’t recall giving him the assignment.

Harvey and his mother refused, according to News 12. He’s since withdrawn from school and is pursuing a GED.

School officials refused to comment to News 12.

73-Year-Old Woman Accidentally Shot DEAD During Police Academy Training Drill

MARY KNOWLTON. SHOT DEAD DURING POLICE TRAINING OF CIVILIANS IN FIREARMS USE.
mary knowlton

Librarian Mary Knowlton was just one of many elderly white women who need a gun and knowledge about how to use it. The explosion in crime facilitated by Obama and other liberals has made such a skill set necessary.

Law and order. It’s something America needs more of. Naturally, the gun grabbers are on to this story.

NBC News

Florida investigators are looking into how a civilian woman was fatally shot during a volunteer citizen police academy in Punta Gorda as about 35 people looked on — an incident police are calling an “unimaginable” accident.

Mary Knowlton was acting in a “shoot/don’t shoot” drill — where participants simulate making lethal force decisions during role play — when she was struck by a live round, the Punta Gorda Police Department said in a statement.

Knowlton was transported to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

“I am devastated for everyone involved in this unimaginable event,” Punta Gorda Police Chief Tom Lewis said. “Everyone involved in this accident is in a state of overwhelming shock and grief.”

Lewis requested the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate what went wrong.

The officer involved in the shooting was placed on administrative leave pending results of the investigation, police said.

Life is dangerous. We can never completely eliminate danger, no matter how much liberals promise that big government will do that.

Obama’s 11-Point Response to the Bastille Day Truck Attack in Nice France

Obama as Hussein of America Dale Toons via Gateway Pundit

Zerohedge

Authored by Yojimbo via The Burning Platform blog,

1. No one needs a commercial truck this large.

2. The Founding Fathers never envisioned large commercial trucks, and did not intend for people to drive them.

3. These “assault trucks” are designed for killing large numbers of people quickly, and that is their only use.

4. We need a “no truck” list immediately, one that does not require due process to get on or off.

5. No where in the Constitution does it mention the freedom to own these killing devices called trucks.

6. Large commercial trucks should only be owned by the police, military, or politicians, NOT normal citizens, who can use horses.

7. We already have licensing, registration, titles, inspection, and multiple taxes on large commercial vehicles, and STILL they are used for mass killing. Enough is enough. We must ban them entirely.

8. We must follow Australia’s example – we must have a massive government buy-back of all trucks currently owned by American citizens, then, they must be destroyed.

9. We must empower the police and military to go door-to-door to forcibly remove these “assault trucks”. Deadly force is reasonable when “disarming” people of these killing devices.

10. If it will save the life of even a single child, we must rid our society of trucks.

11. And lastly, we must continue to resettle enormous numbers of Muslims throughout the United States, primarily in rural, white, Christian areas.

Claim: Slow Motion Video Proves Dallas Police Shootings HOAX

I am not qualified to judge the claims made in this video. Thus, I present it for your consideration.

I continue to claim, as in earlier posts, that there is something dodgy about Dallas Police Chief David Brown, who had driven Dallas police morale into the ground. Chief’s Brown’s son was a cop killer shot dead. His partner was shot dead. His brother shot dead.

Why is this individual the police chief with that track record?

Dallas was home to an earlier crime that had the stench of a lie about it. Recall the JFK assassination? Recall the the Dallas PD allowed the killer of Lee Oswald into the building.

It’s within the realm of possibility that the entire city of Dallas is corrupt beyond imagination.

Supreme Court: Men Convicted of Domestic Violence Cannot Possess a Gun

Funny_memes-gun laws control

America is a land in which there is no more rule of law.

The Constitution specifically grants gun ownership rights to citizens.

Actually, natural law grants that right, while the Constitution upholds natural law.

The concept that a person convicted of a misdemeanor (or even a felony) could be permanently BANNED from owning a gun, a device necessary for self protection in an increasingly dangerous world, is an outrageous violation of human rights, endorsed by a lawless, liberal court.

Independent

The supreme court has ruled that anyone convicted of a domestic violence “misdemeanor” can be banned from owning or purchasing a gun.

Previous law stated that only those convicted of intentional abuse would be banned from owning weapons, but a “reckless” assault could be pardoned.

The judges voted 6-2 on the ruling, with Justice Elena Kagan opining: “The question presented here is whether misdemeanor assault convictions for reckless (as contrasted to knowing or intentional) conduct trigger the statutory firearms ban. We hold that they do.”

The ruling came about after two plaintiffs, Stephen Voisine and William Armstrong of Maine, argued in the supreme court that their cases of domestic violence should not prevent them from owning a gun.

They had pleaded guilty in state court to assault charges after slapping or shoving their intimate partners and were later found to own weapons. Both men had argued the weapons ban should not apply to them as they were charged for “reckless conduct” and not intentional abuse.

Voisine v. United States has been propelled into the spotlight in the wake of the mass shooting in Orlando, when a lone gunman burst into a gay nightclub and killed 49 people.

The Republican-led senate struck down two proposals to ban assault weapons and to ban anyone on the FBI watch list from purchasing guns, but the Supreme Court brought some relief for anti-gun campaigners this week in the case of domestic violence.

A man or woman who fights with a spouse will now find himself disarmed and in peril because six sh*ts sitting in safety on the bench in D.C. ruled it so.

Those six “Justices” (a misnomer) should be impeached and replaced by six who will follow the document the Founding Fathers wrote.
