Satanic Sculpture Stands Next to Nativity Scene at Illinois Statehouse

Published

on

The Illinois Statehouse has displayed a sculpture gifted to them by the The Satanic Temple next to a Nativity scene and a Hanukkuh menorah, as reported by NPR. 

“The State of Illinois is required by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to allow temporary, public displays in the state capitol so long as these displays are not paid for by taxpayer dollars,” a sign next the sculpture said. “Because the first floor of the Capitol Rotunda is a public place, state officials cannot legally censor the content of speech or displays. The United States Supreme Court has held that public officials may legally impose reasonable time, place and manner restrictions regarding displays and speeches, but no regulation can be based on the content of the speech.”

In other words, the state recognizes that the Satanic Temple is simply trying to be a menace to the public at large that wants to celebrate America’s judeo-Christian roots during this holiday season, but it has no choice but to placate the devil worshippers.

The sculpture depicts and arm holding an apple with a snake wrapped around the two, and the words “Knowledge Is The Greatest Gift.”

The Satanic Temple’s website explains the church’s beliefs.

“The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will,” it says.

It sounds like more of a political organization than a religious one. The “church” even brags that has “applied for equal representation where religious monuments are placed on public property,” which seems to be a crowning achievement for them.

Outside of the landing page of the website, the Satanic Temple lists some of its campaigns, which include a program called “Educatin’ with Satan,” specifically designed to “counter Evangelicalism in schools.” They also have a pro-abortion campaign.

SILENCING TRUMP: Jared Kushner ‘Intervened’ to Stop the President from Joining Gab, Parler

Silencing the President.

Published

on

Jared Kushner reportedly intervened to prevent President Donald Trump from joining free speech social media platforms, according to sources within the Trump administration.

John McEntee, a longtime Trump aide, had encouraged the President to establish a presence on Parler and Gab earlier this week, around the same time that Parler was deplatformed by Amazon oligarch Jeff Bezos for enabling free speech. Kushner reportedly urged the President not to, claiming that the free speech networks were “fringe” and that they weren’t worthy of the President’s brand.

Most Trump supporters in turn view Big Tech’s ideology of extreme censorship and bias against the Right as “extremist” in its own right, a view Kushner apparently doesn’t share.

Sources within the White House indicated Wednesday that President Trump was seriously considering joining one of the platforms. He’s been banned from nearly every social media platform, with Big Tech kingpins desperately seeking an outcome in which the American media environment returns to the stale, neoliberal hegemony of the early 2010’s.

President Trump has suggested he’s interested in playing a role in a social media platform free of the auspices of Big Tech, an opportunity that could potentially prove to be gainful for existing platforms and the deplatformed President.

Trump’s delay in signing up for free speech social media platforms may only be temporary, with his associates under the impression that he’s going to get his historic Twitter account back. In the meantime, Kushner’s actions seem to have silenced the President, delivering a long-sought goal of the leading oligarchs and American corporate media companies.
