Epimenides paradox is a series of logical puzzles and contradictions. Epimenides was a philosopher and poet in 600 BC. Epimenides wrote “All Cretans are liars”, and Epimenides was himself a Cretan. If Epimenides was telling a lie that all Cretans are liars, then Epimenides was telling the truth. That is the paradox.
How apropos is this paradox in today’s world. We see it in the muck in the unsocial media, in the rush to judgement, and in the attitudes of society, especially from the left. The left dominates in the unsocial media, and in the democrat party. It’s a combination of suppression of free speech, and false accusations to squelch discussion and debate. It’s predominate in the news media and in politics. This has been going on for centuries, and people don’t seem to learn from these mistakes. The left would destroy the past, only to be repeated in the future.
Lets take the latest manufactured outrage by both on the left and right. A group of high school students from the Covington Catholic schools was attending the “Right to Life March” in Washington D.C. They were wearing Trump MAGA hats. While waiting for the bus to return them back home, they were cheering on the steps of the Lincoln monument. In a lengthy video that captured the events, it shows the kids being taunted by a group of black nationalists bigots. Then a person that claims to be a native American Indian approached the kids pounding on a drum.
Now imagine you’re a teenager being approached by a chanting person beating a drum like Indian. They were jumping around, laughing, and even chanting along. They’re kids. They didn’t perceive a threat to themselves, or any one else. Instead, this person with the drum continue to approach the students, and got in the face of one student that stood his ground, and just smiled. No threatening acts by the students, no foul language, no jeering and taunting. Just smiling. The fake news media went berserk.
The story went viral: “Catholic Students Surround Native American Indian Taunting“. Of course, none of it was true. However, the story spread like wildfire. The left was calling the MAGA hats the new white hood of the KKK. The right condemned the actions of the kids before the full story was known. Even worse, the Catholic Diocese considered expelling the students. The rush to judgement against the innocent students had exploded. Threats of violence against the students and their families started. Counter protests were being organized. Mass hysteria gripped the nation. It was all a lie.
Now that the full video has circulated throughout unsocial media, many on the right are apologizing for their comments condemning the kids. The left, and the fake news media, continues to push the story that the student had initiated the taunting. If anything, the teen that was smiling and was not provocative at all. Instead, the kid seems to be trying to diffuse the situation. However, it was very clear the confrontation was initiated by this protester with the drum.
Who was this individual with the drum? From what we know, and again I cannot stress this enough, this information is mostly from the fake news media. Apparently, the “Indian“, whose name is Nathan Phillips, is a known protester with a history of accusing people of racism. Mr. Phillips claims he’s a Vietnam era war veteran. However, there’s no known evidence if Mr. Phillips ever served in the Armed Services. Is Mr. Phillips are real native Indian? We don’t know that either. What we do know from the video evidence is Mr. Phillips initiated the confrontation. It was Mr. Phillips taunting the teenagers. It was Mr. Phillips attempting to create a violent situation. That Is Clear!
What of the Catholic Diocese? They threw the kids under the bus. They believed the fake news media, before all the evidence was known. They took members of their own flock and cast them aside. They never bothered to talk to the kids before condemning them.
THE CHURCH FEARED THE LEFT MORE THAN THEY FEARED GOD
A little disclosure about myself. I was born and raised Catholic. I was baptized, went to communion, and went through the confirmation process. I am still a Catholic, but not practicing. I’ve seen my church change over the years. I’ve seen my church more towards the hard left. So many scandals in the church, that still have never been properly addressed. Pope Francis is a leftist, and he’s pretty open about it. I haven’t gone to church since after the death of Pope John Paul II. I don’t recognize my church anymore. However, that just me.

The point is that the leftism has taken over the media, the education system, and the church. The majority of the fake news media is hard left. Their favorite talking points are calling people they don’t like and agree with, racists. They do this especially to President Donald J. Trump, and his family. Even though the Trump administration has done more for Blacks, Hispanics, and all Americans. Indeed, the President has been called a racist, an anti-Semite, a womanizer, and just about every name in the book, to the point of ad nauseam.
Yet, President Trump’s daughter and son in-law are orthodox Jews. Trump has invited people of all faiths to the White house, regardless of color, to pray for the nation. Trump doesn’t like to talk about how he practices his faith, and I don’t blame him. It’s no ones business but his. Plus the hostile fake news media will lie about his religious convictions. That’s the truth in the fake news media, they lie about the truth. The fake news media, hides the truth. Like this picture below that was taken when Obama ran for president. Jews voted for Obama in great numbers. I wonder if they still would have voted for Obama if they knew who Obama’s radical racist friends were? Prolly Not!

Leftism has infested the education system like a cancer. Students are confronted daily with leftist indoctrination. K-12, college and graduate schools are predominately hard left. The results is the mass production of students with no actual means of supporting themselves in the real world. There is a sense of entitlement and dependency on government to take care of them. For example, Obamacare was to insure young people healthcare till they were 26 years old. At that age, they should be in the work force supporting themselves. Again, the idea was to move that parental dependency to government dependency. Once you create this socialist dependency, you will continue to vote for these entitlements. The independence for the individual will no longer exist. It was designed that way.
Universities, and Graduate schools are laboratories of leftist indoctrination. Especially the Catholic universities: Georgetown, Notre Dame, and Loyola are just a few where radical leftist professors teach garbage. When this country was formed, all the Universities were religious in nature. Harvard, Yale, St. John’s and William and Mary, were all started by people of different faiths. These universities carried prestige and a promise of a superior education. That’s all reversed now. With gender studies programs, and other far left programs required in order to graduate, the student is cheated from quality education. In my opinion, Graduate schools are a waste of time and money. They offer nothing. I’m not singling out just Catholic Universities, I’m lumping all universities that have leftist study programs that are required for graduation. They are unnecessary and are designed to indoctrinate a leftist ideology onto the student.
I have faith in the heart, and pray for wisdom of the mind, that a great awakening is happening. When I see groups like Walk Away, Tuning Point USA and Young America’s Foundation, I am optimistic about the future of the youth in this country. I have to be optimistic, they are this country’s future. These people refuse to be intimidated by the leftists. They have the strength and courage to stand up to the left. These conservative groups challenge the orthodoxy of the hard left. The lefts destructive ideology of dependency and compliance. Free will is not allowed in the leftist ideology, and anyone that deviates from this false religion, is immediately set upon with savage hatred. Just look at unsocial media to get a idea how the left thinks. –> LINK
