On Tuesday, in light of the leak from the Supreme Court on the possibility of overturning Roe v. Wade , Democrat Representative from California Eric Swalwell tweeted out this little gem . In said tweet he states, “[Republicans] want to ban interracial marriage.”
My first thought on this statement was that this is such a ridiculous thing to say that it does not even need to be addressed. Then I thought about how so many of these people actually believe it. For instance, about a month ago, I happened across a gaming website’s political forum post about the same topic . This is a very left-leaning board which believes that CNN is Republican-controlled opposition , they are very comfortable being themselves here. Thus, no matter how ridiculous I or colleagues on the right might think it is for the other side to believe such things, it is worth taking notice of their beliefs.
To establish context, this claim that the Republicans want to ban interracial marriage comes from an interview wherein Indiana Republican senator Mike Braun allegedly stated that he thought it was a mistake for the Supreme Court to end southern anti-miscegenation laws in 1967. Simply looking at what Senator Braun actually said dismisses this notion. According to Slate.com , the exact exchange was:
“So you would be O.K. with the Supreme Court leaving the question of interracial marriage to the states?” a reporter asked.
“Yes,” Braun answered. “I think that that’s something that if you’re not wanting the Supreme Court to weigh in on issues like that, you’re not going to be able to have your cake and eat it too. I think that’s hypocritical.“
When looking at the full interview (which Slate does provide) it becomes quite clear (if it was not clear already) that Senator Braun was addressing judicial activism. […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
