California governor bans singing in church
Leftist governors across the country have taken advantage of the coronavirus lockdown procedures by banning most church assemblies – even while allowing other groups to meet. The double standard has been especially obvious in recent days as many of them openly have advocated for the masses of Black Lives Matter rioters torching cars and buildings while still maintaining that church congregations could gather in groups of no more than 10. California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders for the July 4th weekend are the latest move in the agenda.

Black Lives Matter Has Nationwide 4th Of July Protests Against America Scheduled For Tomorrow
Meteorologists are warning us that tomorrow will bring us a sustained ‘ring of fire‘ heatwave across much of America, and that is very much appropriate for the racial heatwave that has inflamed our nation over the past 6 weeks. Black Lives Matter anarchist and ANTIFA fascists have planned protests and uprisings in nearly every city for the 4th of July, and you need to exercise much caution if you plan on being out in the public for Independence Day celebrations.

NFL To Begin Playing The ‘Black National Anthem’ Before Games Starting In Week 1 As Sports Now Using Platform For Forced Social Justice
How do you decrease racism? You look at people as people, and treat them based on the content of their actions and character. How do you increase racism?

Just like what the NFL will start doing in Week 1 of the 2020 football season with the playing of the ‘black national anthem’ preceding the playing of our actual National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner. This moronic move is a guarantee of further racial tensions and violence.
