BY , POSTMEDIA NETWORK

TORONTO – A co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto argued that white people are “recessive genetic defects” and purportedly mused about how the race could be “wiped out,” according to a post on what appears to be her Facebook page. Yusra Khogali has faced increased scrutiny over the past year after BLM Toronto gained political influence following their disruption of the Toronto Pride parade and confrontations with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.

On Friday, Toronto Police announced they would not participate in this year’s upcoming parade. This has been a longstanding demand of BLM TO and one that the board of Pride Toronto recently backed in a controversial vote. Khogali has a track record of inflammatory, divisive rhetoric. Only last week during a protest in front of the US consulate Khogali shouted into a microphone that “Justin Trudeau is a white supremacist terrorist” and urged the crowd to “rise up and fight back.” “Look at us, we have the numbers,” she said.

She also faced controversy in the news for a tweet posted a year ago stating: “Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today.”

While these remarks alarmed many Canadians, they pale in comparison to a statement numerous sources forwarded to the Sun that Khogali appears to have posted on Facebook in late 2015. “Whiteness is not humxness,” the statement begins. “infact, white skin is sub-humxn.” The post goes on to present a genetics-based argument centred on melanin and enzyme. “White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual,” the post reads towards the end. “white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”

plz

Khogali did not respond to requests for comment from the Sun. But if she did in fact write the post, her thesis doesn’t pass muster for one of America’s leading scholars of the history of eugenics. “The document mirrors the racism of American eugenicists who claimed in the first third of the 20th century that native whites were genetically superior not only to blacks but also to immigrants from Eastern and Southern Europe,” Daniel Kevles, a professor at Yale University, wrote to the Sun.

“Their claims were without any scientific foundation and added up to expressions of naked white racism.” Kevles’ book “In the Name of Eugenics: Genetics and the Uses of Human Heredity” is considered a leading text in the field. “The anger and frustration that animates the Black Lives Matter movement is altogether understandable, but the way to contest pseudo-science and white prejudice is not with an alternative pseudo-science and black prejudice,” notes Kevles. “It is with moral argument and political action.” The BLM TO website explains their stated goals are “to dismantle all forms of state-sanctioned oppression, violence and brutality committed against African, Caribbean, and Black cis, queer, trans, and disabled populations in Toronto.” There is no indication the group or any of its other members supports the sentiments expressed in the alarming post. The Sun did not hear back from BLM TO and the main Black Lives Matter umbrella group in the United States following various requests for comment. afurey@postmedia.com February 13, 2017

THE FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT JUST DIED WHERE IT BEGAN

free-speech-copy

The violent, mentally lazy thugs who rioted in Berkeley last night bear no resemblance to the famous protesters of the 1960’s and 70’s.  I know because I preached on the Berkeley campus from 1970 until 1980.

THE FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT JUST DIED WHERE IT BEGAN

By Mario Murillo

The violent, mentally lazy thugs who rioted in Berkeley last night bear no resemblance to the famous protesters of the 1960’s and 70’s.  I know because I preached on the Berkeley campus from 1970 until 1980.

milo

Not only do they not represent the free speech movement—last night, they embodied everything the protest movement hated most.   They did not take up the mantle of free speech—they dismantled it.

How ironic!  What a blasphemous, poetic end!   The free speech movement died where it began: in Berkeley…right where Mario Savio gave his famous and  impassioned speech against the machine.  (see video).

An autopsy will reveal the cause of death: terminal hypocrisy.  Protesting alleged hate speech with actual hate speech.  Condemning fascism by being fascist.  pauley-copy-copy

I once saw a cringe-worthy moment on American Idol.  Simon Cowell blasted a young singer because she had the gall to sing a Whitney Houston song.  He excoriated her for not only having a mediocre voice but for choosing a song that would automatically compare her to a legend.  That is what happened last night.

By staging their melt-down on the hallowed grounds of Sproul Plaza these squealing brats forced an automatic comparison to a real movement.

In case you were under a rock, here is what happened last night:  A speech by Milo Yiannopoulos was canceled by UC-Berkeley police as security failed. Yiannopoulos was evacuated from the area.

News of the rioting made cable news last night as students smashed ATMs and bank windows, looted a Starbucks, beat Trump supporters, pepper sprayed innocent individuals, and set fires in the street. Others spray painted the words “Kill Trump” on storefronts.

“The left is profoundly antithetical to free speech these days, does not want to hear alternative points of view, and will do anything to shut it down,” Yiannopoulos told Fox News host Tucker Carlson in an interview on Wednesday night. “My point is being proven over and over and over again.”

Here are the glaring differences between these coddled punks and the protesters I knew in Berkeley:

 Substance:  Back then you heard speeches—speeches that made a case.   They could answer questions.   Today’s so-called left cannot answer questions.  They scream things they hear someone else say.  They make claims that they cannot back up.  If you ask them directly, for example, what does Milo say that is a lie?   They get a deer in the headlights expression.  Today’s campus snowflakes and agitators simply cannot bear to have their viewpoint challenged by facts.  Is it because they intuitively understand that they have no substance?

Free exchange of ideas:  Open mikes were common in Berkeley.  Sometimes wackos would speak but opposing views and open debate were respected. The protestors in Berkeley in the 70’s were often atheists who hated the Gospel.  Nevertheless, they defended my right to preach the Word of God.  Occasionally, I was attacked but my attackers were condemned by most leaders of the movement.

Assisted suicide:  The bottom line is that today’s rioters are killing themselves and their movement. However, it is an assisted suicide.  Older professors, mainline Democratic leaders, aging hippies and a toxic media could intervene but they won’t.   CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, The New York Times and The Washington Post have a vested interest in silencing opposing views…even if it means crippling the next generation’s ability to think logically.

Last night was nothing but hooliganism.  It had all the nobility of domestic violence.

In the video, you see Mario Savio railing against the machine.  He decried a University that simply would not allow opposing views.  Listen rioters, you are now the machine…worse yet, puppets of the machine.

University of California denounces the violence and violation of free speech

Campus condemns violence, defends free speech

UC Berkeley condemns in the strongest possible terms the actions of individuals who invaded the campus, infiltrated a crowd of peaceful students and used violent tactics to close down the event. We deeply regret that the violence unleashed by this group undermined the First Amendment rights of the speaker as well as those who came to lawfully assemble and protest his presence.

The university went to extraordinary lengths to facilitate planning and preparation for this event, working in close concert with the Berkeley College Republicans. Dozens of police officers were brought in from UC campuses across the state. Numerous crowd-control measures were put in place. But, we could not plan for the unprecedented. Last night the Berkeley campus was invaded by more than 100 armed individuals clad all in black who utilized paramilitary tactics to engage in violent, destructive behavior designed to shut the event down. At that point the University of California Police Department concluded that the speaker had to be evacuated from campus for his own safety, thereby bringing the event to an end.

For the campus police, the primary objective is always the safety and well-being of our students and the public. That is what informs their strategies and tactics. In that context we are relieved that, as of now, there have been no reports of serious injuries.

We are proud of our history and legacy as the home of the Free Speech Movement. While we have made clear our belief that the inflaming rhetoric and provocations of Mr. Yiannopoulos were in marked opposition to the basic values of the university, we respected his right to come to campus and speak once he was invited to do so by a legitimate student group. The violence last night was an attack on the fundamental values of the university, which stands for and helps to maintain and nurture open inquiry and an inclusive civil society, the bedrock of a genuinely democratic nation. We are now, and will remain in the future, completely committed to free speech as essential to our educational mission and a vital component of our identity at UC Berkeley.

 

 

 

 

 

CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power

why

CNN has lost its sanity.  Doing a report about assassinating Trump and Pence so Obama can stay in power?  Are they trying to encourage someone to take the president elect’s life during the inauguration?  This segment by Wolf Blitzer has no rhyme nor reason.  What are they thinking?  The wheels have come off of this news network.  It is time for America to pass judgment on a wholly discredited fake news organization.  MM

CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power

By Walter Todd Huston

As the nation prepares for the peaceful transfer of power on Inauguration Day, CNN is dreaming up scenarios whereby the Obama administration can keep power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were blown up as they prepared to take to oath of office.

On the Wednesday, January 18 broadcast of CNN’s The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer aired a segment with a chyron featuring the headline “Developing Now.” During that “developing” segment, Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd discussed what would happen if the unthinkable occurred on January 20.

Blitzer introduced the segment, saying, “What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?” and from there, CNN contributor Brian Todd took over to outline the line of succession if an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence.

The upshot was that in the case of both heads of state being killed, the Secretary of State would take over. Currently that man is Secretary of State John Kerry, But in case some objected because his office would also end as of noon on Inauguration Day, then it would be the Speaker of the House — Republican Paul Ryan — or even Obama’s Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon.

The report also noted that the designated survivor appointed by the Obama administration could also become president in the case of a disaster. So, in CNN’s analysis, most of the people who would take over in the worst-case scenario would keep the Obama administration in power, at least indirectly.

So while most of the country is looking to enjoy the day’s events and waiting expectantly to hear what our new president will have to say for his first address as our leader, CNN is wondering what will happen if he is assassinated.

Perhaps CNN is still stuck in anger, the second stage of grief.

IT’S NOT TRUMP THEY ARE GOING AFTER…IT’S YOU.

coming-after-you-copy

You will not about read this in any Christian magazine.  The radical left has declared a very unusual kind of war on us—a war that Christian leaders will not admit and are totally unprepared to fight.

The Trump victory has inflamed the left so much that they totally rejecting the election and disregarding the rule of law.  Here is what you may already know:

Fake news: NBC poured 400 million dollars into Buzz Feed.  Buzz Feed released fake news that portrayed Trump as a pervert in Russia.  Only Trump was never there and the entire incident was made up to destroy his reputation.

CNN reacted to this in an underhanded way that allowed the narrative to spread while feigning journalistic innocence.

Fake boycotts:  Pop singers who were never invited to the inauguration claimed to boycott it.  Black celebrities like Steve Harvey were eviscerated just for meeting with Trump.  40 Democratic leaders are boycotting the event.

Fake California revolution:  Behaving as if America had been taken over in a coup, California has declared itself a sanctuary state for the resistance.  They have hired former Attorney General Eric Holder to fight all Trump legislation.  California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is moving for impeachment.   Trump is not even in office yet!

cali_sink

Fake Obama peaceful transference of power:  Equally despicable is Obama.  Obama is filled with rage about Trump.  He is frantically using his pen to lay as many landmines as possible for Trump.  He releasing cop killers, terrorists, and traitors—a rogue’s gallery that has but one thing in common—they hate America.

However, all this pales before the news I am about to share with you.  What you must understand—the thing you must get—is, they are not going after Trump—they are going after you.  I am talking about 80% of all Evangelicals and 63 million voters.

They are not calling Trump a racist—they are calling you a racist.  They are not saying Trump hates Gays, Mexicans, and Muslim immigrants—they are saying you do.

According to them: Voting for Trump makes us totally despicable racists and haters who must have our rights revoked.

The 4-alarm leftist hissy fit is only the opening act.  Expect strikes, violent demonstrations, and a towering litany of acts of “civil disobedience.”

Obama is not going away—He will lead the charge.  His true mission to undermine America will kick in now that he is no longer restrained by the presidency.  He will lead a confederation of movie stars, politicians, billionaires, Muslim leaders and minions in the United Nations.

Trump legislation will be throttled at every turn.  The media will launch a withering nonstop assault on every word he says.

As I said, they are not going after Trump they are going after you and me.  If this is true how then should we prepare?  Here are my heartfelt convictions of what we must do now.

yes-they-are-going-after-you

  1. Don’t let them bully you, learn from history.   It is 1776 all over again. British rule then is very much like leftist rulers now.  Loyalists joined British forces in oppressing the colonists and told them that their elected officials were not valid.

The leftist elites are not British monarchs or red coats but they are telling us what we can and cannot believe.  They are seizing our rights.  T.V. Networks and billion dollar companies are working to overrule a free and fair election.

The challenge of the church today is the same as it was in 1776.  Revolutionary war Christians understood that they could not be on the sidelines as their rights were being destroyed.   Their call was to stand with the freedom fighters.

kick-in

 

  1. We must fight with the weapons of God! Thank God, we are not waging physical war but we are fighting a spiritual war. To fight, we must pray and speak the Word of God.  We cannot afford to listen to those who say we should not speak out against Islam, immorality or far left totalitarianism.

Some ask “won’t this make us look unloving and turn lost souls off to the Gospel?”  On the contrary, when we speak out with the power of the Holy Spirit it will shatter the strong delusion that is pervading our society.

Moreover, the early colonists knew they were building a nation that would be a lighthouse of the Gospel to the world.  The iron curtain that these celebrities and media tyrants are ringing down on us will silence the Gospel and leave Israel at the mercy of all her enemies.

  1. Build on prophecy: If you believe that Trump is a miracle that is a type of King Cyrus then act like it! Seize this divine opportunity to stand with policies that best reflect our values.

With the very same breath that we call Satan a liar…we must call falsehood out!  Preachers all over America must ring the bell of liberty in their pulpits by calling out the intellectual frauds who would remove our freedom.

They are not harmless actors and singers, they agents of tyranny that are not coming after Trump they are coming after you…but if God be for you who can be against you?

The media’s war on “fake news” will destroy them. Here’s why

fake-news

When Journalists took sides in the election and let Hillary Clinton dictate their campaign coverage they began to self-destruct.  Here’s why their war on fake news will finish them off.

In a piece for Market Watch by Darrell Delamaide, just days before the election predicted their implosion:  “Newspapers have long since been doomed by the digital revolution and the collapse of their economic model. New waves of buyouts and layoffs recently announced by the New York Times, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal mark another step by print media toward extinction.

Broadcast networks, too, face severe difficulties as new technologies and changes in viewing habits transform the television industry and bring new challenges to news operations.

But it is the bias of the establishment media so blatantly in favor of the establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton, that may strip these news organizations of their last claim to value — as an objective and authoritative source of information — and hasten their demise.”

You would think when the media was outed as biased and dishonest they would changed their ways.  As Frank Luntz said, “After Election Day, the media promised to improve substantive reporting and focus on real issues. They have learned nothing.”

benghazi-massacre-blog-copy1 (1)

Their mental disconnect is stunning.  Derek Hunter said, “You hear it all the time – MSNBC and CNN hosts and pundits can’t fathom the concept of their policies being unwanted any more than they can accept that they don’t work. Their losses have to be caused by other factors.

Since the election, Democrats have blamed everything but a comet, a plague and the death of Prince for the GOP winning the White House and holding Congress. A couple more appearances by Howard Dean on TV, and you probably will start to hear about comets and plagues.”

If being in the tank for Hillary began their doom…here is what will seal it: THEIR WAR AGAINST “FAKE NEWS.”  Back in October, Obama—flush with overconfidence that Hillary would win—said “there is no way to rig the election.”  Now he believes the election has been rigged.  The media agrees and they are pushing the fake news narrative.

What they are purporting boggles the mind:  Wikileaks was more powerful than all the liberal media!

Think about it…the left just levelled the greatest insult ever to NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and all the other legacy news media.  How weak are you when your combined influence is less than one lonely website? But it gets even more mind-numbing.

The Gallup poll says 68% of all Americans say the liberal media fakes the news, yet they have started a crusade against fake news.  Hypocrisy does not begin to cover this. This is irrational.

charade

Irrational people will not listen to reason. They don’t care about rational explanations. They want to fulfill a need right away.  The media will behave irrationally until that need is fulfilled.  The media needs to be right but America says they are wrong.  America is telling them that if you do not want to tell the truth we will not buy your product.

A sane person or company would heed that warning.  The fact that the media is pushing the fake news narrative—which is astoundingly embarrassing and without merit—proves they would rather die than admit they are wrong.  Sadly, they will get their wish.

However, this opens a gigantic door for the Gospel in America.  This is because the message of Jesus was a prime target of the media.  Being the mouthpiece of secular progressives and Hillary meant they had to discredit and lie about Christianity.

The media called the Gospel sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, anti-science, anti-immigrant and on and on.   Christian values became the all-purpose thing to be offended by.  It was the last legal prejudice.  But something has changed!

I tested this fact by saying deliberately saying Merry Christmas to someone I knew didn’t like it.  At first, they gave me a scowl.  Then they caught themselves.  I could see it in their eyes.  That moment of recognition.  Thinking this wonderful gesture is a symbol of oppression is a silly thing of the past.

But it goes much deeper than that.  People tried to protest churches for supporting Trump.  That is gone.  The insults have gone.  The late-night comedians feel the fatigue of a public that is sick of leftist rants.  It is not funny anymore.  Teachers don’t get away with class rants against God and America anymore.

College students—millennial snowflakes who whimper, cry foul at anything Christian and run to safe spaces look real pathetic to the public.  Something has changed.  The shift is unmistakable.

4

A door to share the love and power of Jesus has opened.  But it will not stay open long.  We have this golden moment of opportunity for a handful of years.

The left will come back like a rash.  They will regroup and once again try to control the nation.  They cannot help themselves.  In the meantime, we must preach the Good News without apology or hesitation.  Revival–heaven sent true revival–will build a new nation under God that will stand the test of time.

 

My open letter to Donald Trump and American Christians

open-letter

Since I met Christ 51 years ago, I have wondered if the day would come when I would be called upon to sacrifice everything—including my life—for my faith.  I believe that day is here.  I am risking everything in this letter.

My open letter to Donald Trump and American Christians

By Mario Murillo

Since I met Christ 51 years ago, I have wondered if the day would come when I would be called upon to sacrifice everything—including my life—for my faith.  I believe that day is here.  I am risking everything in this letter.

This letter is not to believers who sat this election out or set aside their Bible and voted for open borders, a left-wing Supreme Court and late term abortion.  I am writing to Christians who are voting for Donald Trump and I am writing to Mr. Trump himself.

There is no version of Hillary Clinton that does not spell doom for America.  Most Americans agree.  They loathe the idea of a president Hillary Clinton.

This is one reason for the massive, excited crowds at your rallies, Mr. Trump.

We should be preparing for a Trump landslide.  However, the system is rigged.  How can you doubt that after the tsunami of corruption and collusion you have witnessed in this election?  The decision by the FBI not to indict Clinton is a death knell to freedom.  It sets the stage for tyranny.

I have a flicker of faith in the system.  My hope, my expectation, is that tomorrow we will finally be able to drain the swamp.

donald-trump

But what if she wins?  What do we do then?  We do not wait till then…we must do something today.  We need to learn a powerful truth from a story in the Bible.

I am certain you are familiar with the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and the fiery furnace.   The Bible says, “Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good!  But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?”

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.  If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.  But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” – Daniel 3:15-17.

Here are the most explosive words in this story: Our God can save us but if He does not—no matter what—we will still not worship the idol.

NO MATTER WHAT!  Those words must dominate our heart today.  They did not say, “If God saves us we will serve Him.”  They said “no matter what.”

That confession is in my soul today.  I know that under Clinton there will be open persecution of preachers who opposed her.  I am ready, she knows where to find me.  Come and get me but I will not back down…no matter what!

I want you to be ready!  I want you to say NO MATTER WHAT!

-No matter what—the battle against abortion continues.

-No matter what—we will preach the Gospel.

-No matter what—we will press the case against corruption directly to the American people.

-No matter what—we will vote!

-We will keep going!  We will haunt Congress.  We will press the FBI and the Department of Justice.  We will expose the corrupt media.  We will continue to fan the flames of freedom in America.

We refuse to feel a let-down.  God will find a way to use us, no matter what!

Mr. Trump, God touched your heart to make America Great Again.  You didn’t need this misery.  At some point, the Spirit of God made the fleeting pleasures of this world unimportant to you.  People began to matter to you like they have never mattered before.  You received faith to run for president.

Now I am imploring you to embrace a fiery-furnace loyalty.  No matter what, this movement will go on.  Even if the corrupt system delays victory—keep going.  You have built a support base of tens of millions of people.

What would the movement look like if you lose the election?  That is a question only God and you can answer.  However, you have always been an innovator.  Between you and the creative power of God, I have no doubt something amazing will emerge.

To everyone I say this: Evil must feel your fiery-furnace loyalty to God.  It is not that God will not give us victory tomorrow…after all, He did save the three boys.  It is just that our hearts need a miracle today on the eve of this election.

We need to refuse depression, anxiety and fear.  We need to look at tomorrow with fire in our eyes—a fire that roars, “We will keep fighting…NO MATTER WHAT!”

 

A Matter of Life and Death

life-and-death

Here is the plain truth: We are in a situation where the worst president we have ever had—may be replaced by the only person who could possibly be worse—at the worst time imaginable.  The odds of this are astronomical.

A Matter of Life and Death

By Mario Murillo

Here is the plain truth: We are in a situation where the worst president we have ever had—may be replaced by the only person who could possibly be worse—at the worst time imaginable.  The odds of this are astronomical.

Let me take that last one first.  This is the worst time imaginable because a blanket of delusion hangs over the general population.    They have been assaulted, robbed, lied to and cast aside by Obama.  Yet—like a battered wife—millions of Democrats have signed up for more.

Moreover, the media has lost its soul.  They are busy lying, manipulating, punishing opposing views and utterly selling out to elect Clinton.  At any other time, people would be horrified and disgusted.

This is the perfect storm.  To my mind, there are only two possible reasons that all of this could be happening at the same time:  1. Satan is making his stand to destroy America.  2. God has sent a strong delusion to judge America.

Let me take the first one next.  Obama is not merely the worst president ever.  He may be the worst thing that has ever happened to America.  He did the opposite of everything he ever promised.

-He said Obamacare would save you $2,500.  Arizona will see an increase of over 116%.  The average national increase will be 60%.

-He promised jobs and instead drove 95 million Americans out of the workforce.

-He promised to heal race relations. Instead, he started a race war that has killed scores of police across the nation.

hillary-and-obama-pic-575x380

-He said he would make life better for blacks.  Instead he set records for suffering.  Lowest home ownership.  Highest crime rates.  Highest poverty rates. Since he has been in office, 8 thousand have been murdered in Chicago alone.  he has divided the races and poisoned all race conversations.

-He promised to heal our relationship to the Middle East.  What he gave us was a world of terror, civil war and imminent world war.

This is the worst time for Hillary.  If you believe that Hillary’s corrupt, heinous, hideous, malevolent, malicious, nefarious, ugly, vicious, vile and depraved (words fail me) character in anyway compares to Trump’s failings…you are indeed under a strong delusion.

People think that the point I am making is “watch out, Hillary will make things bad!”   No, no it is much worse than that.   Things are already bad, horribly bad.  Obama has made us utterly miserable…instead of hope and change, he gave us fear and loathing.

When it seems that things cannot get worse, Hillary will find a way.   She is the finishing touch on a dying nation.

This is not a dire warning…the “dire” is already here.   This election is not a choice between a bad candidate and a worse candidate.  No matter how impossible this election seems, you must vote.  No matter what the outcome, you will be able to say that you voted to save the country.

The delusion can be broken by prayer and brave action by vessels of God.  We are long overdue for a miracle.  Whatever you do…vote.

It is no longer just a vote…it is a choice between life and death.
