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.

Today’s blacklisted Americans: Virginia teachers & parents who oppose teaching children that whites are evil and minorities cannot be racist

Today's modern witch hunt
Burning witches: what the modern left wants to do to its opponents.

They’re coming for you next: In an effort to slander their opponents and prevent them from shutting down the use of Critical Race Theory (CRT) with its blatant anti-white propaganda, administrators, teachers, and some parents in Loudon County, Virginia, began compiling an enemies list of anti-CRT parents and teachers to blacklist those individuals and silence them.

Members of a 624-member private Facebook group called “Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County” named parents and plotted fundraising and other offline work. Some used pseudonyms, but The Daily Wire has identified them as a who’s who of the affluent jurisdiction outside D.C., including school staff and elected officials.

The sheriff’s criminal investigations division is reviewing the matter — but the group’s activities might be no surprise to top law enforcement because the county’s prosecutor, narrowly elected with the help of $845,000 in cash from George Soros, appears to be a member of the Facebook group.

Secret communications reviewed by The Daily Wire do not offer any evidence of racism by the group’s targets. Their opponents were apparently those who objected to, sought to debate, or were even simply “neutral” about “critical race theory,” a radical philosophy opposed by many liberals and conservatives but increasingly embraced by governments.

The article is gentle about how it describes “critical race theory,” which is a wholly bigoted program designed to generate hate between whites and all minorities as it demonizes whites as evil and blesses all minorities as perfectly pure and good.

One email from the Facebook group outlined how the supporters of this bigoted race theory program planned to use that enemies list.

  • Gather information (community mailing lists, list of folks who are in charge of the anti-CRT movement, lists of local lawmakers/folks in charge)
  • Infiltrate (create fake online profiles and join these groups to collect and communicate information, hackers who can either shut down their websites or redirect them to pro-CRT/anti-racist informational webpages)
  • Spread information (expose these people publicly, create online petitions, create counter-mailings)

In other words, dox, sabotage, and slander their opponents, the standard political tactics of all leftist and Democratic Party politicians and activists since Obama made these evil tactics mainstream during his administration.

The woman who suggested these tactics, Jen Durham, posted them using a fake name, Jen Morse. She was quickly joined by others, including a former teacher.

Durham … works outside of education, for the American Society of Ophthalmic Administrators. But it was a former teacher, Hilary Hultman-Lee, who executed on the idea most prolifically.

“Regarding the anti-CRT movement, we’d like to compile a document of all known actors and supporters. Please comment below with legal names of these individuals, area of residence and or school board Rep known, known accounts on social media, and any other info that you feel is relevant,” wrote Hultman-Lee, who at one point taught Latin at Potomac Falls High School and who is listed as doing business with the school district as an education consultant.

These are sadly only two examples out of the many other individuals the article names, many of whom work for the county in either law enforcement or in its education establishment. Worse, many of those joining in were eager to advocate the use of violence against anyone who opposed the teaching of critical race theory. For example, there is

…Jamie Ann Neidig-Wheaton, a one-time George Mason University adjunct professor. “The racists have a Go Fund Me,” she said, referring to Parents Against Critical Theory (PACT). “Burn it down.” According to public records, in 2012, Neidig-Wheaton was arrested on charges of trespassing and assault, which were later dropped.

Debating the use of critical race theory is of course reasonable, though its clearly racist content makes it difficult for any of its supporters to win any public debate. So their answer of course is to silence, threaten, and slander their opponents in the hope the debate will be quashed before it happens.

Sadly in Loudoun County this strategy is winning, as the government there is apparently closely tied with the advocates of critical race theory, and appears quite willing to use its power to aid these authoritarians in their blacklisting effort.

    “Hilary Hultman-Lee,” “Jamie Ann Neidig-Wheaton,” — what’s with the hyphenated Names, eh?!

  • Chris

    Hello Loudon County parents. Please add me to your list of anti-CRT people. I am a parent but my children were generally raised correctly and enjoy somewhat fruitful lives now due to their hard work and effort.

    But please add me to your list!!! Do it now!!!

    However, let it be known I will not be silent nor silenced. I have a voice and i will have it heard. And, I will scream of YOUR RACISM!
    I will bring others to our cause. We are quiet now, but our voice is coming and growing.

    I’m waiting.

    Hilary Hultman-Lee

    Reminds me of an early 90s joke:

    Q. Who’s the meanest woman in the world?
    A. Tonya Rodham Bobbitt

    Sometimes I’ve gotta laugh to keep from crying.

  • Col Beausabre

    Next February don’t forget to wish Hilary happy Presidents’ Day.

    Matter of fact, I think I may organize a grass roots campaign on the internet to have thousans, nay, millions of people to do so

  • Col Beausabre

    “what’s with the hyphenated Names, eh?!”

    It’s popular in some benighted circles. It’s supposed to show how equal and woke their marriage is and, as usual to ,virtue signal how much more enlightened they are than you, you heathen. When I was in grad school, we had classmate who put two looong Italian names together. To a man and woman, we said to heck with that, and she became universally known as “Donna Spaghetti”

    If I remember correctly, she dropped one of the names by the time we started our second year. She was also faced with the prospect of sending out resumes within months and it finally dawned on her that her pretentious affectation was going to earn her instant round file status

    @wayne

    It’s women who are deeply conflicted between their loyalty to their father over their husband. Another clear sign of mental illness.

    Chris–
    Are you in Virginia?
    My daughter, son-in-law, and g-daughter live in Fairfax County. (It’s getting really weird there, and they want to leave.)

    eddie–
    That, is golden!

    Col-
    (hilarious!)
    -Sign me up for the Hilary (isn’t ever gonna’ be) president, Event.
    -Generally, only serial killers have 3 names. (and cats, lets not forget the cats)

    Back to business:

    I would put forth the proposition;
    In the Multiverse, there exists a wave-function where-in all these petty tyrants have already been dragged from their castles, shot in the face, and their names erased from history.

    An interference pattern with rhe shot in the back of the head wavefunction yields the railroad spiked to a tree through the ears variant. Two ears one spike.

    Wayne: nah – I’m Penciltuckey. We have great leaders like Tom Wolf (Mr Z rules keep me from commenting) and his health secretary Rachel -the confused one- Levine

    I have a cousin formerly in CA who “moved in heartbeat” while on vacation in Utah this last summer/fall. That said, the only people left in CA will those who can’t move and those who like the way it’s going. I’m thinking we are going have to stay and fight sooner rather than later.

    American Society of Ophthalmic Administrators.
    They have an entire society just for secretaries of eye doctors?!? They’re somehow enough different from secretaries of ear doctors and proctologists that they can’t be part of those associations? Oy vey.

    Sadly in Loudoun County this strategy is winning
    Yes, because the “useful idiots” there are legion. The place votes overwhelmingly blue (NorVa is why Virginia has gone blue-purple) and is full of people who are fully indoctrinated into the religion of Progressivism. Don’t blame government when these folks vote them in. They encourage the cult, let them suffer for it.

  • Cotour

    Making California unlivable for the every day average rational American man and woman is IMO a part of the overall agenda of the Left and their tools the Democrats. Force all reasonable people out of the state and flood it with illegals who will be controlled by the Democrats and their enforcers and essentially take over the state, and secure the tap root of cash flow from the Federal government for “Social” programs to support it all.

    A parasitic political / psychological operation where the host pays for their own weakening and destruction.

    That is unless the people actually have a say in what goes on their and do something about it.

    This is not at all a helter skelter operation, this is by IMO carefully engineered agenda with a long term goal in mind.

  • GWB

    @Chris: You taught your children hard work and effort bring success?! Don’t you know you’re part of the problem? That makes you a white supremacist!
    (Ugh. It hurts to even try and type that sort of stupid carp, even as sarcasm.)

  • Richard M

    Even if they win this battle, I’d have to question keeping my children in the Loudoun public schools. It will still be the same mad people in charge, after all.

    Make the sacrific to find a sane private/parochial school, or homschool.

    The Friday episode of Tucker Carlson is so spot on for the current Woke Folk. To skip past the other truths that Tucker has, to the part on the Chinese view of Woke Folk go to ~ 6:40

    GWB,

    “It hurts to even try and type that sort of stupid carp”

    You get used to it. And before you know it, you’re writing grant proposals.

  • Jeff Wright

    Space websites besides this one are getting bad. Cosmoquest permabanned me over politics, even though one topic thread was a question about progressive sources—no infraction.

    One of their hosts had a blatantly political blurb about how “science was back” —a slam against Trump.

    Hypocrites…,

    This is one of those dangerous Americans: https://youtu.be/SrnTzgDPP_0

    He has credentials, he presents himself well and sounds intelligent, he is the PR package the Left needs to sell their Bovine effluent.

    Does he sound more like a junior Bolshevik, or a junior Nazi Brown Shirt?

    He wants American businesses to swear an oath and they agree basically that the 2020 presidential election was 100 percent the epitome of a fair and Democratic election, OR ELSE. That is what those lists of the “None agreeer’s” are for, OR ELSE. They love lists of people, why is that?

    (Guess what? I do not agree with what you want me to swear an oath to. IMO the 2020 election was and is fraudulent and does not represent Democratic reality to me and what I can detect that went on and is continuing to to go on . IMO Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been clearly installed by the Democrat party and their minions applying the “By any means necessary” method of political agenda and power acquisition and retention. Two truly empty suits that are for appearance only and run by “Others” with real anti and un American agendas at the fore front of their minds.)

    Is it that Mr. Kirshner does not understand what he is proposing? Or is it all just a head fake and he very well knows what he is up to? Keeping in mind that he was a DOJ prosecutor. (He knows very well what he is doing)

    He proposes that if you agree you will be “Safe”, and if you disagree you certainly will not be Safe. No one is safe as long as these kinds of people are operating. And they are not going anywhere.

    This is how the Left operates, recognize it, reveal it, reject it.
