I am now running my annual July fund-raising campaign to celebrate the twelfth anniversary of the establishment of Behind the Black. For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. These companies practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.


Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Today’s blacklisted American: Baseball bans man for expressing his opinion at baseball games with banner

The Bill of Rights cancelled by Major League Baseball
Doesn’t exist at the professional baseball games.

This seems especially appropriate during the July 4th weekend: Major League Baseball (MLB) — joining Disney, Sea World, and Sesame Street — has officially banned Dion Cini from all baseball stadiums, simply because he routinely came to games and displayed a “Trump Won Save America” banner.

Cini’s Twitter profile describes him as “Guerilla Marketeer, Political Consultant, Founder of OperationFlagDrop & ‘Professional Provocateur.’”

He has skated with his flag on Wollman Ice Rink, where he was physically assaulted, even though the Trump organization operated Wollman Rink. Cini also unfurled what is rumored to be the world’s largest Trump flag on the front of Trump Tower in Manhattan in March of this year. Cini even dropped a “Trump Pride” flag one day after the end of Pride Month.

Cini has now been banned by MLB stadiums and Disney parks, Sea World, and Sesame Street. As per his Twitter account, he has no plans of stopping the flag drops.

Cini was definitely doing this activity to promote his business, which sells American flags banners, but so what? He was also expressing his opinion about the November 2020 election, something that under the Bill of Rights he has the right to do. Moreover, in none of his stunts has he done anything to hurt anyone else, or prevented anyone from viewing the games. If anything, others have oppressed him by attacking him for doing so.

The physical attacks on Cini illustrate again the intolerant nature of too many people from the left, many of whom now run the country’s biggest corporations. They don’t simply disagree with Trump and the Republican Party, they want to destroy anyone associated with that party or its political positions. Opposition to Democratic Party rule must not be permitted, in any way, shape, or form.

Coming to your town in America soon!
Political round-ups: Coming to your town in America soon!

Persecution is now cool! And because this type of minor and very incomplete censorship is not very effective, and in fact acts to attract even more attention to those who have been oppressed, expect the censorship and blackballing to intensify. If simply banning someone from events or businesses is insufficient, maybe arresting them will work better!

Don’t believe me? Then you know nothing of history. This is always how petty dictators transition into genocidal maniacs. You just have to give them time, and look the other way when they begin bullying someone else.

Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

    I can understand why political banners wouldn’t be allowed at sporting events. But, I bet you could fly a Biden/BLM/antifa or any other marxist banner all day long at any MLB or NFL stadium.

    Wow, getting banned by Sesame Street, that’s a new one.

    “He was also expressing his opinion about the November 2020 election, something that under the Bill of Rights he has the right to do.”

    This is BLATANTLY false.

    When it comes to someone ELSE’S property, the Bill of Rights does *not* declare you have the “right” to ‘express your opinion’. When it comes to someone ELSE’S property, you do *not* act by right at all. You act solely by the owner’s PERMISSION – *if* he deigns to grant it to you.

    Claiming you have a “right” to the life and effort of another person is the claim that person is your PROPERTY.

    Funny – wasn’t your “Conscious Choice” book *supposedly* against that evil?

    At this point of desperation expect anything as things get pumped to the max, and that is not by mistake.

    Pure Strategy Over Morality in your face, and more on the way. Expect anything.

    Wait until they start removing and banning those ‘John 3:16’ signs in stadiums.

    Oh they can but will they?

    And then watch for someone to propose removing religious signs out in public. Just because they don’t like religion.
    Oh wait atheists already try to do this.
