Where did the Dixiecrats go?

By Ayesha Kreutz
“Where did the Dixiecrats go?”

Contrary to legend, it made no sense for them to join with the Republican Party, which is the party of civil rights achievements. The answer is, they returned to the Democrat party and rejoined others such as George Wallace, Orval Faubus, Lester Maddox, and Ross Barnett. Interestingly, of the 26 known Dixiecrats (5 governors and 21 senators) only three ever became Republicans: Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms and Mills E. Godwind, Jr. The segregationists in the Senate, on the other hand, would return to their party and fight against the Civil Rights acts of 1957, 1960 and 1964.

No generational Wealth for Blacks

Brothers and Sisters we need to talk. Here is a little fact about where Socialism has brought us.




Blacks have not been able to accumulate generations of wealth. In fact the black household in 2010 had just a mere median net wealth of $4,900 and 1/3 of black households had a zero or negative wealth.

This is why I will not be silent. This is why no matter how the left tries to demonize what we do, it will not work.

You are worth more than the scraps left behind by socialism and the “Powers that be.” God has a purpose and a plan for your life, and it is for good.

Want to build wealth? Want to understand economics? Want to leave something for your children and begin building a legacy?

If you are interested in finding out ways you can start investing in the future or diversify your existing portfolio, 401k or other investments. Let me know and I can get you in touch with a Wealth Management Investor. Email me at ayesha@fdfny.org

Articles, Information and Petitions – Condoms for kids

All we ask for is our rights as parents to NOT be ignored and circumvented. We will “Fight for our right to PARENT“. A responsible sex education program should involved several elements and we recognize that starting with factual information and moral guidelines. While we believe it is a schools role to only focus on basic anatomy and the physical aspects of human sexuality as that is essential. We also know that’s only half of the issue, but the rest of the issue is up to us as parents to decide how and when it is appropriate for OUR Child and Our moral background. A Jew is not going to have the same values as a Christian. An Atheist is not going to see it the same as a Muslim or a Buddhist etc.. and in public schools we come from all backgrounds. It’s been said that sexual sophistication without sexual responsibility leads to disaster, a fact substantiated by the number of unwanted—often terminated—pregnancies in our nation each year. As parents strive to integrate and teach these factors in the home, it helps to encourage questions, communication, and reflection while exemplifying their own value system.

Has the issue of distributing condoms and other health related information to Rochester City School District children become one of the religious community vs the secular community? Rochester City School Board Commissioner Jose Cruz weighs in.




The Rochester City School District recently held a parent forum to continue the discussion about the controversial policy of distributing condoms to school kids. Several parents discuss their views about the forum and the pending policy.


The debate, concerning whether the Rochester City School District (RCSD) should make condoms available to school kids, is not going away. Clive Wilson a professor of Psychology at Finger Lakes Community College and Sarah Lenhart, founder of Dream Again Ministries say the RCSD should abandon the idea


A former music teacher in Greece, convicted of having sexual contact with a student, is scheduled to be back in court today.

Jeffrey Hoffman was sentenced in 2010 to two years in state prison and 10 years of supervision following his release.

Wednesday’s hearing has to do with his requirement to register as a sex offender.

Hoffman admitted to having sexual contact with a 14-year-old student. He taught music at Pine Brook and Craig Hill Elementary Schools and was also the director of the school district’s marching band.

If you vote Democrat are you voting your values?

If you vote Democrat are you voting your values? If yes GREAT!!, I am not knocking you, I know many wonderful Democrats who vote their values. If you answered yes to the above please let meknow which of these (pick as many that apply) in this list are your value? If it is some other values NOT on this list please let me know. Answer and Share please.

1. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

3. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

4. I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

5. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius.

6. I voted Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted
so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

7. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

8. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. I voted Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle or gopher.

11. I Vote Democrat because I do not believe in God, I do not believe in the 10 comandments. God is a delusion

12. I voted Democrat because I believe government and school districts know best for my child, I need their help to pick which school my child has to attend

By Greg Pfundstein It Didn’t Work In the UK

Last week here on the NYC Parents Choice Blog, we discussed the evidence from program evaluation that shows that abstinence education works. This week I want to focus not on the evidence provided by evaluations of programs, but on the evidence provided by application of programs in the real world. Fortunately, we have a case study in the UK.

In the late 1990’s the Labour Government in the UK set itself the goal of halving the teen pregnancy rate by 2010. To this end, they instituted mandatory sex education in schools that focused on condom and contraception use, and also provided free contraception, abortion, and emergency contraception to kids without letting their parents know. This is exactly the philosophy that motivates Mayor Bloomberg’s sex ed mandate: more contraception will solve the problem. So if now, more than a decade after the UK implemented this policy, the Bloomberg administration is implementing it here in New York City, it must be because it was such a success in the UK, right?

Wrong. In fact, the pregnancy rate remains virtually unchanged in the UK, and has risen for teenagers under 16. Meanwhile, the abortion rate has increased, and the rates of sexually transmitted diseases have gone through the roof. And it only cost 300 million pounds (almost $473,000,000). One UK government official said in 2007, “What we actually need is for family-led organisations, and local communities and the voluntary sector to work together on these problems.” The Telegraph, in an August 2010 editorial, called the program “a sexual disaster for teenagers and society.” In that editorial the editors made this strong point: “Moreover, parents must be part of the process, not kept in ignorance: evidence from America shows that their involvement helps to reduce teenage pregnancy rates. This is because it is the family, above all, that is the key here.” Read more here, here and here.

Parents deserve the right to opt their children out of failed programs and into common sense alternatives that will help protect their children from disease. That’s what the NYC Parents’ Choice Coalition is all about.

  • Send an e-mail message to the Rochester City School Board. Encourage the Board to reject this misguided proposal. We need to let the The Rochester School Board, Monroe County Dept. of Health and other community health organization know that we have not relinquished our parental rights and responsibility to make critical decisions for our children. And they are not welcomed to take our place as parents.

  • Sign Pettion HERE to tell the School Board NO – We need your signature and as many as possible before Nov. 17th. Please Help

  • Please send a comments to: perspectives@minorityreporter.net or twitter@perspectivesmr

    Lastly check out our PSA:

    Please Share with others and help us reach as many people in Monroe County as we can. As we know this is not just an RCSD issue it is a Monroe County issue, A New York issue (see NY), A National Issue.

    Cognitive Dissonance? Obama to Position Himself as Leader of ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Movement While Anti-Semitism and Communist Sympathies Taint Protests


    Nazis, commies, and Occupiers – oh my!
    By Hassan Nurullah

    In the last century, the United States of America sacrificed more than 400,000 of our young men fighting against Japan and the evil of Germany’s National Socialism. America lost another 100,000 or so stopping the encroachment of Sino-Soviet style socialism in both hot and cold wars.

    There is not a single political philosophy responsible for more human carnage than socialism. Leftist ideologies, whether you call it fascism, socialism or communism, are directly responsible for the slaughter of millions in just a single century. Let’s look at the tally of deaths resulting from socialist revolutions.

    Nazi Germany: 6 million Jews alone another 6 million Soviet POWs, Poles, Romani (Gypsies), Disabled, Slovenes, Homosexuals…

    Soviet Union: Lenin-Stalin, 29 million.

    China: Under Mao Zedong, 40 million

    Cambodia: Pol Pot, 1.6 million

    Those are just the big boys, that count doesn’t include Tito, Fidel Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevara or any of the other tin pot socialist dictator’s atrocities. Good thing that a great deal of the “revolution” was indeed not televised.

    The left, particularly in academia, has worked wonders in distancing themselves from the barbarism their ideology inevitably led and continues to lead to, especially fascism. Despite the overwhelming support German and Italian fascism received from Western leftist progressives like H.G. Wells, NAACP founder W.E.B. DuBois, George Bernard Shaw, Will Rogers and Rexford Guy Tugwell, to name a few, the left has managed to somehow repaint fascism as a right wing philosophy.

    The leftist progressives fell all over themselves in praise for Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Ol’ Il Duce…until the slaughter began. W.E.B. DuBois declared that the National Socialist Party (Nazis) takeover of Germany was: “absolutely necessary to get the state in order.” Further Dubois wrote from Russia to the readers of his magazine ‘The Crisis”:

    “I stand in astonishment and wonder at the revelation of Russia that has come to me. I may be partially deceived and half-informed. But if what I have seen with my eyes and heard with my ears in Russia is Bolshevism, I am a Bolshevik.”

    As DuBois later condemned Nazism’s extremes and lamented the deaths caused by the revolutions he had praised earlier, it was clear that he was indeed both deceived and ill-informed.

    After a visit to Italy, Will Rogers said of Mussolini: “I’m pretty high on that bird.”

    How are erstwhile political dilettantes like Rogers and DuBois any different from their contemporary progeny? Doesn’t Sean Penn’s praise of Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez sound eerily similar to Will Roger’s praise of Il Duce? Is the solidarity shown by “progressives” like President Obama and Nancy Pelosi with the neo-pinko Occupy Wall Street throng any different than DuBois declaring himself a Bolshevik?

    I would have to say that the biggest difference has to be that the modern day progressive has the luxury of hindsight. History is a very useful thing to have — unless, out of either ignorance or hubris, you ignore it. And that is what we are seeing today. Some are willingly ignorant, others are simply evil.

    Well the modern day Nazis and Communists have thrown their collective lots in with the Occupy Wall Street protestors. The Nazis because just like the National Socialist movement of Nazi Germany included an anti-semitic element, the same element is also present in the Occupy protests. And you don’t see the anti-semites being universally denounced or made to feel unwelcome by their fellow protestors.

    The neo-nazi groups are saying since there is already anti-Jewish literature and rhetoric being preached at these rallies, they should remove the more offensive symbolism of the Nazi movement and join the Wall Street protests with watered down versions of their more inflammatory fare. Apparently this was issued by a nazi group in Westland Michigan just in time for the Detroit Occupy protest.

    If socialism is such a good idea, why does it inspire so much death and destruction? You can see the modern progressives twisting history to the applause of the again, unthinking, ill-informed herd in this video .

    Liberals feverishly try to draw a moral equivalency between the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street crowd. But you don’t see the Nazis and the Commies issuing pleas for their followers to join the Tea Party. You can’t shout racist, anti-Semitic or anti-American rhetoric at a Tea Party gathering.

    Those who do are on the other side of barricades conducting anti-Tea Party rallies. Despite liberal attempts to call the Tea Party racist, those are the facts.

    “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners” I Corinthians 15:33

    The Greek word translated into the phrase “evil communications” is “homilia,” “companionship,” i.e. (by implication) intercourse: — communication. This is from the Greek word “homilos” (meaning a crowd); association together, i.e. a multitude: — company.

    In other words, associating with the wrong crowd corrupts (often making a person act counter to their character by being engulfed in reactionary herd thinking) the way others perceive you and whatever message you may be trying to convey. This simple Biblical tenet is often taught to children by good parents. Be careful of the people you hang around with, because bad behavior tends to rub off.

    I have seen Christians promoting these Occupy Wall Street rallies. I cannot for the life of me figure out why. Were we wrong to oppose the Nazis and the Communists for the better part of a century? Don’t you think it odd that Christians find themselves aligned with people holding anti-life political philosophies?

    I am reminded of the words of my Lord in the Gospel of Matthew when His detractors tried to blame His actions on the devil:

    “Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.” v25

    How do we cure the ills of our nation by embracing and adopting the failed and murderous philosophies of our enemies? The answer is simple: You can’t. Socialism has wrought only misery whenever and wherever it has been tried. Without regard to nomenclature, make no mistake that is what hides behind these protests. Christ continued in verse 26:

    “And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?”

    If you are a Christian at an occupy protest and socialists are all around you, ask yourself why the teachings of Christ are done away with in socialist nations? If capitalism is evil, why does Christ teach the principals undergirding capitalism over and over again in Scripture, likening them to His kingdom? Read Luke 19:11-27 or the parable of the “talents” Matthew 25:14-30. Or the “laborers in the vineyard” were Jesus Christ begins:

    For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. Matthew 20:1

    You could just as easily change the word householder to capitalist or businessman: For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a capitalist… As with all things of importance taught by Christ — there is both a practical and a spiritual application. The practical in this verse is that God describes His kingdom as one which rewards industry. That’s how America used to be and should always be — a country that rewards the industrious.

    I made this statement on my Facebook fan page and on Freedom Torch: “America doesn’t need revolution, just a truly well informed electorate not blinded by misleading rhetoric. In the United States change comes with a vote not rioting.” You do not get socialist revolutions, like the ones being called for by far too many of the Occupy Wall Street crowd without blood.

    For the Christians yoking yourselves to these “Occupy” people I ask you to remember:

    “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” II Corinthians 13:5

    If you believe our system is wrong, do you really think standing with Nazis, Communists and people fornicating in the streets — defecating on police cars and all sorts of reprobate behavior is the right way to go?

    If our system is evil, how does Satan cast out Satan? Again; “Bad company ruins good morals.”

    It’s Not the Individual It’s the Collective – This movement is not Anti-Government


    More like Wallstreet Squatters

    ‘Follow the Red Flag!’

    I’ve been spending as much time as I can down at Occupy Wall Street, listening to the speeches, reading the literature, talking to the organizers. Here’s something to keep in mind: You’ll hear in a lot of the conservative media that this is some kind of socialist/communist enterprise piggybacking on a populist protest. In reality, it is much worse than even most of the conservative media is reporting.

    Almost every organization present at OWS is explicitly communist or socialist. Almost every piece of literature being handed out is explicitly communist or socialist. I don’t mean half, and I don’t mean the overwhelming majority — I mean almost all of it. Yes, there are the usual union goons trying to figure out how to get OWS to do the bidding of the AFL-CIO and the Democratic party, and the usual smattering of New Age goo (the “Free Empathy” table) and po-mo Left wackiness (animal-rights nuts), the inevitable Let’s-Eradicate-Israel crowd (“Free Palestine, from the river to the sea!”). But, that being said, almost every organized enterprise and piece of printed material I have encountered has been socialist or communist. It’s been a long time since I saw anybody peddling books by Lenin. It’s been a long time since anybody told me the Ukrainians had it coming.

    When the protesters were rallying to march to Times Square, out went the call: “Follow the red flag!” Which is what they did, literally and, I fear, figuratively.

    Interesting, then, that Barack Obama has decided to lend some presidential legitimacy to the proceedings. OWS isn’t a socialist revolution — I’d be surprised if it ever escalated past the vandalism stage — but it imagines itself to be, and Barack Obama suggests that he is in sympathy with it. This reminds me of something . . . a particular image . . .

    Speaking of vandalism, I witnessed a bit of it on Saturday, when a protester denied the use of the facilities at a local pizza shop began tearing up merchandise and throwing it in the garbage. The owner caught the vandal outside and put him in a bear-hug, yelling for somebody to call the police. The police eventually showed up and, of course, did something close to nothing. A few union goons loitering outside the pizza shop began to taunt the owner: “You feel better now? You got that out of your system?” The shop owner was an immigrant, who probably came to this country under the mistaken notion that the police would be here to protect his property and that random acts of destruction would be at least frowned upon by his fellow citizens.
