America is in the midst of a new cultural civil war that for years has been brewing under the surface as left-wing academics breed aggressively woke children now permeating throughout the nation’s mainstream institutions.

Since the killing of George Floyd at the knees of a Minneapolis police officer sparked the worst outbreak of civil unrest in decades, protests that grew out of demanding justice for Floyd morphed into a dark operation to fundamentally transform the nation’s psyche, convincing the people of their own inherent evil from ancestral wrongs.

Battle lines are clearly being drawn, where the radical left has offered Americans a binary choice in a false dichotomy between total submission or unrelenting exile with those opposed to the new woke world order cast out of society as unrepentant racists refusing to atone for past generations’ sins. No justice, no peace. Silence is violence. You’re either with us, or against us. There is no middle ground. Which side of history are you on?

Of course in reality, (and sanity), it’s clearly not that black and white, but if recent events show us anything, they expose that this mentality is no longer one of a fringe left-wing movement but a central tenet of our mainstream culture of what it means to make “progress.” America, according to the now only acceptable narrative, is an irredeemably racist society that was built for the sole purpose to oppress. It has never been great. Anyone who thinks otherwise, is as guilty as the slaveholders who lived more than 150 years ago.

For as long as the nation continues to go mad, purging books, movies, statues and history in its own cultural revolution launched by woke elites, The Federalist will be chronicling its destruction, updating this list with each new event in its collapse. The Federalist will also be keeping tally of those fired from lack of allegiance to the new woke overlords found here.

NBC News Attempts To Cancel The Federalist With Foreign Group

NBC News tried to strip The Federalist of its Google ad revenue by working with a left-wing British think tank to complain to the tech giant about Federalist reporting.

NBC’s “Verification Unit” collaborated with the United Kingdom’s “Center for Countering Digital Hate” to compile a report complaining about The Federalist exposing the mainstream media’s deliberate lying over recent protesting that has gripped the nation without citing the stories in question.

Google released a statement however, debunking NBC’s reporting that The Federalist had already been demonetized, clarifying that the Silicone Valley tech giant is still threatening to introduce sanctions on the website over third-party content in its comment sections.

Mob Comes For Dominos Pizza For Eight-Year-Old Compliment

Eight years ago, Dominos Pizza thanked now-White House Press Secretary Kaleigh McEnany for issuing the nationwide pizza chain a compliment.

According to NeverTrumpers infected with a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome however, that’s enough to destroy the brand of any food service nearly a decade later.

“You just killed your brand,” Wilson wrote on Twitter.

“Welp. It’s unfortunate that thanking a customer for a compliment back in 2012 would be viewed as political. Guess that’s 2020 for ya,” Dominos wrote back.

New York Times Op-ed: ‘Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish the Police’

The New York Times ran an op-ed on June 12 erasing any doubt that calls to “defund the police” actually mean the complete abolition of law enforcement, as if the Minneapolis City Council’s Friday vote to do just that wasn’t proof already.

As this list will later explain, the Times had previously issued an apology to readers for publishing a well-reasoned editorial by Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton arguing for Trump to “send in the troops” to quell violent riots after staff complained its publication put black employees “in danger.”

Seattle Mayor While Anarchists Control Downtown: This Is Fine

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan shot back at President Donald Trump on June 12 as the president called for an end to the city’s partial occupation by socialist protestors.

Episode Of ‘Fawlty Towers’ Censored

The British television station, UKTV pulled down the episode “The German” of “Fawlty Towers” off air over “racial slurs.”

“The episode contains racial slurs so we are taking the episode down while we review it,” UKTV said in a statement.

John Cleese from the show condemned the move as “cowardly and gutless and contemptable.” On the comments the station found offensive, Cleese made clear, “we are not supporting his views, we are making fun of them. If they can’t see that, if people are too stupid to see that, what can one say?”

Shows Depicting Police Get Cancelled

Democratic Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey was kicked out of a protest in a walk of shame on June 6 even after professing his “coming to grips with” his “own brokenness” for the sin of being white standing in the center of thousands of protestors.

His crime? That he refused to promise his support for the complete abolition of the city’s police department.

“I do not support the full abolition of police,” Frey said when presented with the yes or no ultimatum.

The next day, the Minneapolis City Council announced its move to banish its police department.

Drew Brees Apologizes Repeatedly For Comments On The National Anthem

NPR: Your Books Are Racist

It seems NPR has skipped right to the book-burning phase of the American woke revolution urging individuals to “decolonize” their bookshelves in an effort to rewrite the nation’s past.

Stop Cleaning Up Rioter Graffiti, That’s Also Racist

A day after another round of D.C. rioting, a group of three women cleaning the side of a vandalized federal building were harassed by one activist calling their public service “disgusting.”

“So you don’t care about black lives then?”

Coronavirus Is Woke-Sensitive

On June 1, dozens of public health experts signed an open letter blaming white supremacy on societal illnesses applauding the protestors for combating the true pandemic without regard for the novel Wuhan coronavirus that shut down the nation causing irreparable damage in the process.

“As public health advocates, we do not condemn these gatherings as risk for COVID-19 transmission… This should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-home orders,” they wrote.

In other words, protests are fine as long as they remain in the name of social justice. Any other form of expression however, must be banned, for public health that is. Surely that’s a convincing message to the millions of Americans forced down to food pantries because the government deemed their life’s work as non-essential, or to the families unable to say goodbye to loved ones because funerals of more than 10 people were too dangerous.

You Can’t Go To Church But You Can Burn Down The Church

As millions of Americans flocked the nation’s city streets in righteous protests, the rest of the country has been forced to remain locked down despite its leaders joining in on the massive gatherings violating their own social distancing orders, but the media doesn’t seem to care.

In fact, the double standard is even encouraged, where reporters cry danger over sitting next to one another for a White House press briefing after celebrating their own presence amidst a sea of social justice warriors.

If nothing else is clear in the aftermath of these time-defining protests, it’s surely time to end the lockdowns.

Cult-Like Sermons Host White Guilt Worship

White people are now bowing down in religious gatherings to atone for ancestral sins.

Woke Reporters Downplay Riot Violence

Government-funded PBS Reporter Yamiche Alcindor tried (and failed) to fact-check President Donald Trump on the presence of “anarchists” among the nationwide protests.

Meanwhile, NBC News allegedly directed its reporters at one point not to use the term “riot” to describe the spontaneous combustion of buildings, and just as a warlord was in the process of taking over Seattle, CNN’s Brian Stelter dedicated an entire newsletter to “the riot lie.”

Make no mistake, the list of reporters downplaying the violence is virtually endless, but this video just about sums it up:

Pulitzer Prize New York Times Writer Says Destroying Property Isn’t Violence

The New York Times’ architect of the anti-American “1619 Project” Nikole Hannah-Jones decided to just say it out lout, explicitly rejecting the idea that destroying property fits the definition of “violence.”

“Destroying property, which can be replaced, is not violence,” Hannah-Jones said on CBS, to which the anchors offered no challenge.

“It’s a great point that you make Nikole,” responded CBS’ Vladimir Duthiers.

The Second Amendment Is Racist

Hannah-Jones also erroneously claimed the Second Amendment is racist despite its most ardent supporters having been fervently opposed to slavery.

Chris Cuomo Doesn’t Understand The First Amendment

CNN’s Chris Cuomo showcased is own ignorance of the First Amendment in early June appearing dumbfounded by the criticism that what the rioters were doing was actually wrong.

“Please, show me where it says protestors are supposed to be police and peaceful,” Cuomo said.

Here’s the text from the First Amendment, emphasis ours:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

‘Social Justice Warriors’ Deface Statues Of Actual Social Justice Warriors

In an ironic twist, civil rights heroes have become the target of protestor fury in the name of social justice. Monuments paying tribute to President Abraham Lincoln, an iconic abolitionist, and a union war hero have fallen victim to the demise of the demonstrators’ historical ignorance.

Antifascists Attack Monument To Antifascists

During protests in Washington D.C., demonstrators defaced a monument to those who actually liberated the world from tyranny.

Protestors Kill St. Louis Black Police Chief

His life mattered too.

Riots Destroy Minority Businesses

The worst of the rioting might be over (hopefully), but the destruction left behind will take years to rebuild. While violent protestors terrorized communities, minority neighborhoods reported bearing the brunt of the damage. Such progress for the advancement of the “oppressed.”

Hawaii Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono thinks Americans ought to fundamentally change the way they think about climate change, arguing that climate change should be thought of as a “religion” rather than a “science.”

“Believe in climate change as though it’s a religion, it’s not a science,” Hirono encouraged.

The comment came during remarks the senator was delivering in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, making the case that citizens should be more active in leaving one’s comfort zone to be more assertive on left-wing demands.

Hirono’s bizarre line about climate change being framed as a religion over science falls in line with the direction that Democrats have been pushing the issue, ramping up calls to take an aggressive approach to combat environmental pollution.

Many 2020 Democrats chasing the party’s presidential nomination have signed onto the “Green New Deal,” a broad socialist proposal championed by freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York promising to wreak havoc on the global economy pledging “economic security” to those “unwilling to work.”

Ocasio-Cortez has previously compared climate change to World War II, calling for a World War II-scale movement to combat the impending destruction of the planet.

“So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II, and so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before,” Ocasio-Cortez said last year.

What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war. We had a direct existential threat with another nation, this time it was Nazi Germany, and the Axis, who explicitly made the United States as an enemy, as an enemy. And what we did was that we chose to mobilize our entire economy and industrialized our entire economy and we put hundreds if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country. We have to do the same thing in order to get us to 100 percent renewable energy, and that’s just the truth of it.

The Green New Deal, the congresswoman’s solution to the problem includes provisions to completely abandon fossil fuels and renewable energy. The proposal also calls for the elimination of air travel, a ban on 99 percent of cars, and a prohibition on meat.

Ocasio-Cortez said she wonders if it is, “OK to still have children?” in a climate-ravaged world. A growing population control movement, calling themselves “birthstrikers” are choosing not to reproduce because of climate change.

However, the devotion to climate change activism does not end with policy proposals. In fact, the movement even has it’s own figures of worship like Ocasio-Cortez and Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg. A towering mural of Thunberg herself was recently painted on a building in San Franscico.

Source: The Federalist: Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono: ‘Believe In Climate Change As Though It’s A Religion’

2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders of Vermont said in an interview published Tuesday that he doesn’t believe he needs to tell voters how it’s possible to fund his massively expensive plans for socialized medicine dubbed “Medicare for All.”

When pressed by CNBC’s John Harwood on how a Sanders administration would come up with enough revenue for the program, Sanders dismissed the concern.

“You’re asking me to come up with an exact detailed plan of how every American – how much you’re going to pay more in taxes, how much I’m going to pay. I don’t think I have to do that right now,” Sanders asserted.

White House rival Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who co-sponsored the Sanders “Medicare for All” bill in the Senate and is pushing a nearly identical health plan on the campaign trail, has also dodged questions on how she would fund the program.

Numerous budget experts agree that it would be impossible to fund “Medicare for All” without drastically hiking middle-class taxes. While Warren notably evaded questions on whether she would spike taxes on the middle class in this month’s Democratic debate in Ohio, a new report from the independent public policy think tank the Committee for A Responsible Federal Budget shows that it would be mathematically impossible to pay for the program without doing so.

“There is simply not enough available revenue from high earners and businesses to cover the full cost of eliminating premiums, ending all cost-sharing, and expanding coverage to all Americans and for (virtually) all health services,” the authors of the study wrote.

The approximate price tag for Sanders and Warren’s proposal comes in at an estimated $30 trillion over its first ten years, according to the experts at the Committee for A Responsible Federal Budget. Their study concluded that even introducing the most confiscatory tax rates on high-income families and corporations would only generate $11 trillion, only a third of the required revenue.

A similar study from the conservative Heritage Foundation came to the same conclusion. David Burton, a senior economist at the foundation, reported that even if the federal government were to confiscate every dollar Americans earn above $200,000 every year, it would only cover half of Democrats’ far-left agenda including Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, a universal basic income, socialized college, and other extreme proposals.

“The reality is that progressive promises can only be funded by radical tax increases on the middle class, a dramatic increase in annual federal deficits and the national debt, or a combination of the two,” Burton wrote in the report.

While Warren continues to avoid saying whether she would raise everyone’s taxes to support “Medicare for All,” Sanders has been more honest, admitting during the October debate that a middle-class tax increase would be required to fund the enormously expensive proposal, although Sanders has been light on the details.

As Democrats struggle to hammer out a way to pay for their health fantasies, the U.S. debt and deficit have been hitting all-time highs, with the federal deficit reaching nearly $1 trillion in the 2019 fiscal year primarily due to entitlements. The Congressional Budget Office is forecasting the deficit to exceed that number next year, and programs like Social Security and Medicare are projected to go insolvent in the near future.

2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden claimed Saturday to have began his long career at Delaware State University, a historically black college in his home state, as opposed to the University of Delaware where he actually went to school.

“I got started out at an HBCU, Delaware State. Now I don’t want to hear anything negative about Delaware State here. They’re my folks,” Biden said during a South Carolina town hall.

While Biden’s comments make it unclear what the former vice president was exactly referring to during Saturday’s town hall, it is likely Biden was claiming to have gone to school there given his own history of exaggerating his record on civil rights and his summer of gaffes. He’s also been criticized for his age and poor memory.

The confusing mix-up occurred while Biden was touting his education plan to voters in the early primary state as the campaign begins to downplay expectations in Iowa and New Hampshire pivoting its focus on South Carolina and Nevada.

Real Clear Politics’ latest aggregate of polls shows Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren now leading Biden in both Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two states to cast votes in the Democratic primary while Biden maintains a firm grip on his frontrunner status in the following two states.

Biden’s campaign has been struggling in recent weeks to keep a strong hold on its first-place position as Warren briefly eclipsed Biden in national polls earlier this month to provide Biden unwanted company at the top of the pack. Warren’s poll numbers have since slipped but remains Biden’s most competitive threat in the primary given her strength in the early voting states and fundraising numbers outraising Biden by nearly $10 million in the third quarter. Biden was also out-raised by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
