Here are the questionnaires used, if anyone’s interested:
I didn’t make it all the way through, but so far they’re not giving me any ideas I wouldn’t have already had as a school kid.
I can almost guarantee that when they say they’re going to shift to a more “Florida specific” form, they mean they’re going to look at which survey items shone a light on the effects of their evil, bigoted policies, and remove those ones.
Republican representative: “We are under no obligation to be kind to one another and kids are not obliged to.”
Those words were uttered not long after he participated in a group prayer to the guy they believe inspired these words in one of the main Christian prophets, words that are carved into their holy book:
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:32)
Later this year M4L plans to hold its second national summit in Philadelphia. Titled “Joyful Warriors National Summit,” the event will be held June 20-July 2 at the downtown Marriot. The first summit last year was held in Florida, where the organization was founded and where it maintains its national headquarters. The choice of Philadelphia, a well-known Democratic stronghold, is an obvious bid by M4L to increase their presence and influence in Pennsylvania.
At this point, M4L has not announced its roster of speakers and sponsors. However, last year’s Summit roster of speakers included such right-wing luminaries as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who imposed the infamous Don’t Say Gay Bill on his state’s schools, and Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Secretary of Education who advocated abolishing the Dept. of Education.
The Marriot Hotel chain, host for both this year’s and last year’s Summits, has non-discrimination policies. However, administrators at the Philadelphia Marriot did not respond to repeated requests from PGN for comment on M4L’s anti-LGBT and anti-African-American stances.
Disclaimer: This group contains zero moms and is against liberty. The “Joyful Warriors Nation Summit”™ is depressing, contains zero warriors, soldiers, bailiffs, beastmasters or other related persons. This is a small regional group, and the “summit” is more of a loose gathering. YMMV. Taxes and fees may apply.
Oh, and we’re meeting at the Courtyard, not the full Marriott.
$100 Body Art = Harry stabs you vigorously with this Bic Pen he sharpened on a radiator. Later, while you wait at the ER for treatment of a staph infection and possible Hep C, you and your friends can have fun trying to guess which of four Looney Tunes characters he decorated you with.
I hope someone has made the opposing version:
White Boomers detest multiculturalism and the “decline of the American middle class” but have benefited from it (and caused it) throughout their lives:
Preferential treatment on GI housing bills
Preferential treatment in housing laws in general
Cheap labor in the form of undocumented immigrants
Voting for politicians who ship manufacturing overseas
Voting with their dollars to support the Walmarts instead of the local shops
Gutting public education after they got theirs
