Twitter Class began early this morning ...
with a teaching on government overreach, increased regulations, and the subsequent criminalization of American citizens. (Check it out here.)
Yesterday, we were made aware of another police shooting of two teenagers, one White and the other Black.
I made a tweet stating, "I cannot handle another story of a kid being killed by the police. Make. It. Stop."
And do you know how some Conservatives responded in my comments? They played the blame game: they blamed the parents for the shooting; they deflected to Black-on-Black crime; they sided with the police AGAIN.
These folks never think for once that perhaps these communities are pushed into criminalization because oppressive progressive regulations prevent them from exercising their Constitutional rights.
These folks never think about the parents, who now have to watch their dead sons be used as political pawns for BLM or other activist profit.
These folks have no conscience. And as a result, they further allienate a voting bloc (Black Americans) who are HUNGRY for political options that get the Progressive heel off their necks.
I find it interesting that just three months ago, Conservatives and MAGA folks were branded national security threats or domestic terrorists by media. How quickly they forget.
It is a fact: The more regulations communities must deal with, the more opportunities they have to be criminalized.
In 2020, California criminalized independent contract work via a progressive law. Imagine regulators penalizing a single Black mother for holding a freelance writing business -- something she's had for 5 years -- and suddenly making her profession illegal.
Or imagine Black men in poverty-stricken communities wanting to protect their homes, but can't access legal firearms because of the overbearing regulations that systematically prevent them from gaining one legally.
There is a clash happening among certain Americans who want to exercise their Constitutional rights in the face of oppressive, local regulations.
But when they contend for this rights, local regulations make them criminals instead. This is a reality in America, even if it's not your reality.
Think of this situation in light of a Biblical story. Remember when Peter and John replied, "Which is right in God's eyes: to listen to you, or to him?" (Acts 4:19). In other words, there is a higher authority each individual subjects himself to, and that authority grants them exclusive, inalienable rights that often conflict with local regulations.
So, I will ask you, Beloveds: Which is better for a citizen? To adhere to the Constitution or to local regulations that directly choke their individual rights?
This is the battle millions of Americans in Black communities suffer. It's not exclusive to them, but it's the area which has this Movement's focus. We are creating the blueprint for Conservatives to use for social, political, and economic evangelism based on the authentic values. What will work in these communities (as far as conservatism equally applied) will be useful in other communities suffering heavy regulations and abject poverty.
We aren't going to win anything by doing exactly what Progressive Leftists do. Not a single Conservative should champion any progressive law that stifles Constitutional rights (like Stop-and-Frisk). Yet, that's EXACTLY what we see happening on the Right from Progressive Republican pundits (like Matt Walsh). They give you every reason to believe Black men don't deserve full rights as citizens; and too many Conservatives listen to them.
(See Twitter Class for more details.)
So, today, Conservatives have a choice. They can continue the stupid, which prevents our values from expansion. Or they can pivot. They can present a choice and be the choice for these communities who are desperate for political options.
Right now, you see some of us doing the work on the ground. From Black Guns Matter to Hotep Nation to My Beloved Women's Ministry to KillingsVille Communal Living and more! What we're doing is what you can do for your local area as well.
I encourage you to support these works, because we are receiving national attention; and we are using this access to empower Conservatives with better ways to spread the values.
But don't stop with your financial contributions.
Gather 2-3 people in your community and ask the Holy Spirit how you can be useful in this hour locally. Whatever ideas come to mind, trust them! Move forward with them. Each day, make an effort to manifest that vision, and soon you will expand.
We can do this, Beloved, because we are equipped for this. As always, the Conscious Conservative Movement is here to provide the educational support you need.
We are growing together, and we will see Revival, Reformation, and a Renaissance in this next round. Doing things based on Kingdom principles is our winning strategy.
If Today's Lesson Made You Think Differently About Mobilizing This Next Round ...
... then be a blessing to this platform as we continue the work of ministry to help single mothers in Atlanta, GA.
Last round, the Conscious Conservative Movement focused on effective outreach to Black male voters. The results: an increase in voter turnout for Trump, a Republican candidate.
This round, we are doubling our efforts to reach Black men AND Black women, the latter who are more concerned with social issues and educational opportunities for their children.
With your donations, we can provide FREE training to single Black mothers whose sons are enrolled in King Randall's program, The X for Boys.
You can learn more about our partnership and outreach here.
