The American people have wasted the last three years. If you don’t know what I am talking about, stick with me, because you will definitely get my point by the end of this article.
Three years ago, Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in one of the greatest election upsets in American history. Many conservatives have used the word “reprieve” to describe what happened, but the truth is that it was actually an opportunity. It was an opportunity for this nation to move in a fundamentally different direction culturally, but it would be up to the American people to decide if that would actually happen or not. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen. Instead, just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine is running rampant in our society, and things are getting worse with each passing day. No matter who wins the next presidential election, and no matter who controls Congress, there is no future for our country if we stay on the path that we are currently on. Our culture is steadily swirling down the toilet, and most Americans don’t seem to care.
On Monday, we witnessed a watershed cultural moment that perfectly illustrates what I am talking about.
For many years, Chick-Fil-A was one of the few major corporations in America that was openly resisting the rising forces of political correctness. They literally became a heroic counter-cultural symbol for many of us, because they were willing to take a bold stand for the truth even as they endured endless attacks from rabid politically correct militants.
But now Chick-Fil-A has unconditionally surrendered to the politically correct crowd. On Monday, the company announced that they would no longer be donating money to The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. And CNBC is reporting that this decision was made because both of those organizations “have a history of opposing same-sex marriage”…
Chick-Fil-A said on Monday that it has stopped funding two Christian charities after coming under fire in recent weeks from LGBTQ activists.
The fast-food chain’s foundation has donated millions of dollars to The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Both organizations have a history of opposing same-sex marriage.
Has our society gone so far down the toilet that it is now considered to be “evil” to give money to The Salvation Army?
Are you kidding me?
Look, the truth is that the Salvation Army is not even remotely a radical organization, and yet the politically correct crowd all over America is calling on everyone to boycott it.
Is this really where our society is heading?
Needless to say, a lot of conservatives were absolutely outraged by Chick-Fil-A’s decision. For example, this is what Allie Beth Stuckey had to say about it on Twitter…
Really @ChickfilA? This is the direction you want to go? You’ve garnered the unconditional support of millions not in spite of but BECAUSE OF your stances, which is the sole reason you’re successful. Idiocy. Bye!
I totally agree with her.
I will no longer be eating at Chick-Fil-A either, and I hope that millions of other outraged Americans will make the same decision.
Sadly, virtually every single day there are more examples in the news of the extreme moral decay that is eating away at the fabric of our society like a very aggressive form of cancer.
And we can see examples of this all around us.
For instance, a business owner in Denver was recently fined for refusing to pick up the poop and discarded needles that drug addicts were continually leaving in front of his store…
One businessman in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood is being fined by the city for his refusal to pick up human waste. He believes the problem goes deeper than just what’s happening on the sidewalk outside his business.
Jawaid Bazyar has seen it all out side of his business near Curtis St. and 24th in Denver’s Five Points Neighborhood.
“There’s food, trash, drug deals. In the alley, we get the defecation, drug needles,” he told CBS’s Dominic Garcia.
In the past, many Americans tended to look down upon “third world countries”, but the truth is that we are literally becoming a third world country.
In Oakland, the number of homeless people has risen by 47 percent over the past two years, and this is causing all sorts of social problems. The following comes from Fox News…
Freddie lives in a hole in Oakland. The middle-aged, longtime heroin addict has no running water, electricity or a bathroom. He does have six pigeons and a feral cat that keep guard over his belongings and hiss at strangers who get too close. He sleeps on a bed of trash and his open-air home is a hodgepodge of reminders that Freddie is not OK. He spends most days cleaning up the sidewalk opposite his home. On days when the drugs really kick in, he can be seen sweeping dirt from one side of a dirt lot to the other.
There are a lot of Freddies in Oakland — people who are down on their luck or pushed out of their homes and struggling with mental illness who find it easier to turn to drugs than face reality.
And this is actually happening in one of the most prosperous areas of the entire country.
In fact, no city in America has prospered more during the Internet era than San Francisco, and it has literally become a cesspool of human degradation. If you can believe it, during the first 10 months of this year there have been 25,084 official complaints about feces in the streets…
The City of San Francisco’s Department of Public Works responded to tens of thousands of “human or animal waste” reports in the first 10 months of 2019, according to the city data.
The department responded to 25,084 such cases from January through October of this year, according to the city’s 311 data portal.
I find it highly ironic that the city at the epicenter of America’s tech boom is literally being used as a toilet.
Sadly, these examples from Denver, Oakland, and San Francisco are not even worth comparing to the absolutely disgusting cesspools of filth and corruption that the halls of power in Washington and New York have become.
Our nation is speeding toward a date with destiny, and the road that we are on only leads to one destination.
Last month I wrote an article entitled “The Book Is About To Close On The Late Great United States Of America”, and in that article, I tried to get people to understand how late the hour has become.
We are running out of time, and yet our society continues to refuse to change course.
In the end, we will reap what we have sown, and nobody will be able to argue that we do not deserve our fate.

Christianity is portrayed in the symbolism of a heterosexual marriage, in which the church is the bride, and Jesus is the groom.
The majority of Chick-Fil-A’s working positions are anti-natal, and few ‘conservative’ womyn will ever abide by traditional gender roles.
But, marriage, hospitality, and security can be private institutions.
Imagine that they are sacrosanct as church ought to be, and someone is taking a dump on that.
The answers are black-and-white.
Corporations are weak minded. They bend to any pressure like sissys. How many US manufactures put the K triangle on their packaging to reflect Kosher for that particular insect rodent destroying America mainly the media they own, that is polluting the minds with gutter cesspool programming and pharmaceutical drug commercials for coping with the chaos they created. Boycott any product that has a triangle with a K in it. Do not buy it. They are traitors to our American heritage and freedom. There are things you can do like speak out against the Tyranny.
I believe that any employer, who keeps you on retainer, for less than the cost of life support, is effectively guaranteeing your illegitimacy, for so long as they are tolerated. Those kinds of working arrangements are a social vice, in the direction of homelessness and dependence.
Further, if you give a toehold to demographic replacements, you are knowingly undermining the culture. Everyone knows who they are, by grammar school; adults have no excuse.
t says, “They bend to any pressure like sissys.”
Demoralizing interest groups are funded by big business against the family. The slum lord employer is the source of social pressure.
The K placed on the packaging is not free, the rabbinic authority charges for that, which adds to the price we pay for the product. Just another way to extract from us.
I think we need to understand that we have already run out of time. Just because there’s literal time left is irrelevant. We’re in this sinking ship because we’re out of town.
What, was someone actually thinking things were going to change? Was some sort of a repentance thought to actually going to happen?
No. It’s over. What time is left is not here for opportunity but only to solidify the obvious.
I agree totally.
Time is up.
It is hard for Americans to accept but some people are not worthy of freedom. The drug addict is a good example. The footloose migrant is another.
By giving freedom to these people who can’t cope or respect it, you denigrate the sacrifices people made to gain freedom.
All I ask for is a society like the 1950s. Family (mom and dad), Boy Scouts, military service, community focus,
Blacks stay in their ‘hoods, women nurturing and caring again, love of country and its institutions. Today we have none of that. And it shows.
The squalor and degeneracy is a byproduct of the society we have today.
The government is not a good custodian of society. The essential plank of civilisation is family, race and community. Mess with that and hades is what you get. It is no surprise the tech mavens are swimming in the worst degradation when you consider their values.
Scratch the Boy Scouts.
Turns out they were harboring as many active pedophiles as the Catholic Church.
You poor unfortunate soul. The problem is not racial, I am black, and feel most of the way you think. The problem like it or not is the failure of the church. Read your history the country was founded by God-fearing people not the hordes of non-religious communists who think they can exist as are liberal or conservative without that key element that makes people truly prosperous and free!!
Yes, I agree. 1950s had good things, but the Christian church was the bedrock of that. True Christians are colorless in Christ.
Did you ever imagine in your wildest dreams that a President of the United States would take our Lord Jesus Christ’s name in vain. And did you ever imagine in your wildest dreams that professing Christians would respond by cheering him?
That is testimony to a fallen people.
This nation has fallen for sure! But as far as the president taking the Lords name in vain. Maybe he didn’t say it in vain, maybe he ment it? You hear people saying oh God all the time! Even little children? Over anything? Thats taking the Lords name in vain! I try not to put God in it? But when I do I mean it, there is nothing in vain in it? People condemn people for saying GD all the time, but say oh God all the time! Even teach their children? And they don’t even realize it? In vain means IN VAIN weather you put damn in front of it or not! Trump is not a politician! He’s a New Yorker, cursing is a way of life for all of them? I think we should look at how he’s trying to help this nation and the American people? And start working together to help him? Democrats have done nothing but destroy the fabric of this nation from day one!!! If you can’t see that, you don’t know history? Look at the Democratic Party’s history and you will see! Today they are full on communists, and mean to bring this country to its knees!! Instead of complaining about something the president says, Stand with him!! He’s our best hope to hold together the country we have left?!! We get a democratic president this next election, GOD forbid!!! This nation will fall overnight? Go live in a democratic controlled city for awhile and see how that’s works out for the normal working man and his family? Democratic politics have destroyed everything that’s good in this country! Stop complaining about Trump? Pray for him and this nation!!! He’s our best bet!!!!! Doubt this will even post? God Bless the USA!!!!
Every one of these businesses that capitulates to the radical left will lose my business. I’m keeping track and making no exceptions. I’ve already quit going to movies because so many actors can’t keep their leftist politics to themselves and just entertain us like they were paid to do. And as long as these dullard athletes are allowed to spew their venom during the course of a game, I won’t be watching any sports either. I may not be able to banish all of these ignorant fools from my life but I am going to give it my best shot.
Bilge Pump McCoy, well said. The deviants & America-haters in Hollyweird are subversives that want to create chaos.
Why do many women vote Democrat, especially women such as housewives who live the good life in upscale suburban areas or employed women who enjoy better than average lifestyles and incomes. I believe everyone has the right to vote any way they want. However, my wife tells me many women, even those are educated, with a high quality of life and standard of living, know how their fathers, boyfriends, husbands, employers, etc. vote, but will vote the opposite from them for what amounts to as no other than a personal desire to undermine the males in their lives. She said they tell her they always vote the opposite, and it’s not usually for reasons of principle or some thought out process, rather it’s petty or personal. She said some of her female friends however become upset because no one cares how they voted.
Demo. party economic policy is not based on sound policy but re-distributionist, “social justice”, and full gov’t control. They want to stunt personal achievement in the name of equality, and have gov’t set all guidelines for “fairness”, to basically disempower those who exercise individualism. Gov’t and education propaganda and indoctrination is especially directed towards women because by influencing the sheer numbers (there are more women than men) they can alter society. What I don’t understand (actually I do) is why one can see empirically the better in one thing, yet choose the other.
tick tock tick tock
Yes Trump put a wrench into the one world order’s timeline.
But, the OWO folks have been working on their agenda for decades. Our education system has been their propaganda tool and look at the kids it has produced – very sad.
The OWO owns the MSM – I don’t think anyone is not in agreement with this.
So where are we going as a country and society. My guess is that by 2028 we will see the world begin to unravel – economic collapse that will lead world civil unrest and possible regional wars – Guess who steps forward as the world savior???
its over, even trump will only delay it.
trump, Poland and hungary and a few other countries are trying to stem the tide; but 50 plus years of the left growing in power and positions and brainwashing the youth for decades has set the world up for a massive reversal to third wolrd countries for all of the world.
I would bet anything there is not a flight to mars in the next hundred years, the usa goes full socialist by 2050, life expectancy declines by a decade and cities and towns become kingdoms again where those that reside and patrol those kingdoms spend most of their time keeping out thugs that have nothing but base instincts.
maybe hese do not happen in 25 or 50 years, but we are on this road now; just like rome was.
Lots of defeatist commentary here. The world is what we make of it. Vote with your wallet, it is the most effective everyday influence any one of us can make.
Chick fil a is quite similar to the NBA storyline. The global market is quite simply, much larger. Like many global focused corporations, the bottom line is income not values. That is a consequence of publicly traded companies, companies ran by investors on boards, just larger companies in general. People whom thought eating at chic fil a regularly were missing the point.
If you want to support groups fighting the alphabet people takeover of our traditional moralities, you should be giving to and members of NORM, National Organization for Marriage, believing marriage is reserved for one man one woman, AFA, American Family Association, promoting traditional christian values with an awesome monthly magazine mailer (we bought the entire ryan dephrates dvd cartoons for the kids and bought those as gifts for other kids, as well as the yearly keep christ in christmas wrist bands which my wife gives to all her co workers), and Mass Resistance dot org, a legislative activist independent group with national and worldwide chapters, ran by a Christian preacher, and they have a great half hour video to watch for what to expect now that gay marriage is legal nationally, as this group hails from MA, which has had legal same sex marriage for a decade now. All of those above groups take activism seriously on legislative levels, unlike chick fil a, whom basically was virtue signaling and never really changed anything other than sandwich sales. If you want to make a difference, support activism groups whom actually are effecting change. I suggest everyone here look into those three groups, sign up, and participate yourself if possible. Disclaimer, I have no business or other interest in these groups, other than supporting their causes and believing in their causes for the most part.
If you did not see the chick fil a sell out coming a mile down the tracks you were blind. There has been a lot of additional push on these issues both directions recently. Now finally after 10 years of pushing for bathroom rights equality it’s happening at school levels. As expected, girls are dropping out of sports like swimming and track left and right, as they are now discriminated against. The biological girls and their parents are horrified at the thought of woman-dudes with wankers and talliwackers showering naked with their daughters. That and the unfair advantages of sports.
NORM, the National Organization for Marriage, recently sent out a nifty fold out graphic icon mailer to supporters. It’s called ‘answering the science deniers’. Find this and get one yourself, it’s awesome. Left side male, right side female. Then describing tangible physiological differences between the two. Takes the wind right out of the subjective alphabet people argument.
On boards nationally these alphabet activists routinely use vpns, gang post, swarm post, troll and disparage with outright anti christian views readily apparent. Other news reports indicate only 1% of US households are actually gay marriage households. It is important to understand that the exposure for this issue is exponentially higher than the actual quantity of people whom want this specific ‘protected right’. So support the good guys, vote with your wallet, and as usual; You are watching political theater.
