“A good song is a good song – this half-acoustic version of the 2009 BONFIRE ballad has even more impact than the original. It comes as a lovely duet, so beautifully arranged and full of sweet emotion, deep feelings and masterclass musicianship.

“Love Don’t Lie” (featuring Lydia Panè) is released!! The new Bonfire album “ROOTS” an almost unplugged album.

Hans Ziller came up with a very interesting idea to include some guitar licks from some of his musical influences into the songs. They are tastefully woven through the entire album. They are all in the original keys and really makes for some interesting listening.

Taken from the album “Roots”, out 26.02.2021!

Lyrics:
Close your eyes when memories are fading
Hold me tight ’til death do us part
Dream away the tears you have been crying
‘Cause love will rise again

Love is like the unknown answer
To the questions of your heart
Love is patient, love is kind
Don’t you let it slip away

Love don’t lie – love don’t lie
Love don’t lie – love don’t lie

Drift away on the oceans of your feelings
Here to stay is the emptiness inside
Time goes by while your heart is held to ransom
‘Til love will set you free again

Love is like a clear blue river
Love is more than words can say
Love don’t envy, love don’t hurt
If you only let it be

Love don’t lie – love don’t lie
Love don’t lie – love don’t lie
Primis Player Placeholder
Love is like the uncut diamond
Hiding in your heart to stay
But love ain’t love ’til you finally give it away
It’s coming back to you someday”

Who Owns Your Identity?: Colloquialism and Identity…

01) NO! Critical Race Theory Does NOT Continue the Civil Rights Movement


“The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 22

Critical Race Theorists like to claim that they have inherited and continue the noble legacy and justice work of the Civil Rights Movement (https://amzn.to/3rzYANN), but this is an abject lie. In this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only podcast, I take about half an hour to make the case definitively that, while they are content to portray this illusion, it is a grotesque distortion of reality, using their own words. By exploring the book Critical Race Theory: An Introduction, by Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic (Delgado is something of a founder of Critical Race Theory) and the paper “Mapping the Margins” (https://sites.oxy.edu/ron/csp19/readings/mappingmargins-crenshawwilliams.pdf​) by Kimberlé Crenshaw, who is regarded as one of the true founders of CRT and the founder of intersectionality, the case against the Woke claim on the Civil Rights Movement is easily and definitively made. Join me to hear the details and the argument! -James”

Colloquialism and Identity…

What is being discussed here, for the most part…is the ability for minorities to control their own identities, and how broader society comprehends them…hence, combating their own dehumanization and social impoverishment.

This is directly tied in with the “I am a man!” statement, from the black civil rights movement…It is an expression of the exact same cultural fight, wherein the majority consider it their ever present right to demonize, ostracize and mock some minorities.

James does not appear to understand this.

Where the people who fight on behalf of this typically fail, is in consistently applying it equally across the board to all groups of people…They only see the social consequences on the minorities they are part of, or they rationally know…but they don’t extend that empathy on to other minorities, that are also being viciously stereotyped and demonized.

This is probably the single most maddening thing about them…because while they are putting themselves forward [and many are looking upon them] as “champions of minority rights”…they’re simultaneously de-legitimizing other minorities in the eyes of the masses, when they ignore the injustices done to those minorities…or worse still, engage in furthering those injustices and demonizations.

If you think you can righteously howl and pound your fist over the plight of Blacks, Jews, Gays, Lesbians and Transgenders [etc.]…and you can turn right around to make snide, vicious remarks about Nepiophiles, Pedophiles, Hebephiles and Ephebophiles…then you don’t belong in any civil rights movement…The whole concept of civil rights, has completely flown over your head.

No, James…

…They are correct, in that they understand the many ways that losing control of your own social identity, injures and impoverishes minorities…

…and it does do that…Many of us can personally vouch for this fact.

The problem today…is that there are a lot of self centered, ignorant douche bags, who claim the principle of self identity ownership is only rightly applied to specific minorities they endorse.

…which literally hijacks and corrupts the base concept and principle.

There is a lot to be angry over, where it comes to how that movement has conducted itself over the last few decades…A lot of the people who’ve sprung out of it, behave like mentally detached schizophrenics…

…But identifying the principle of social identity ownership [the control of ones own social identity], is not one of those things to be angry over…

…It’s honestly quite helpful and insightful.

This is one thing they did which was indisputably right.

It’s the fact that so many claim “a right” to be gatekeepers over this, where things went horribly off the rails.

The talking over and stonewalling of others, is atrocious.

Portland Cops Protect DUMPSTERS From Starving Residents…

“Roughly a dozen Portland police officers faced off with a small group at a Northeast Portland Fred Meyer on Tuesday after people tried to take food that had been thrown away.

Workers at the Hollywood West Fred Meyer threw away thousands of perishable items because the store, like many others, had lost power in an outage brought on by the region’s winter storm.

GOP Idiot Caught On Hot Mic Saying The UNSPEAKABLE…

“Republicans across the country are now adding ‘incite violence’ to their platforms.

Michigan’s highest ranking Republican leader was caught on video calling the Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol a “hoax” and espousing other conspiracy theories related to the siege.

Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, in a video posted on YouTube of a meeting with Hillsdale County Republican Party officials, said of the Capitol insurrection in which five people died: “It was all staged.”

About half an hour into the video Shirkey can also be heard asking, “Why wasn’t there more security there?” He accused Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of being involved, saying McConnell “is part of the decision-making how much security they have on stand. I think they wanted to have a mess.”
