On February 7, 1964, Pan Am Yankee Clipper flight 101 from London Heathrow lands at New York’s Kennedy Airport—and “Beatlemania” arrives. It was the first visit to the United States by the Beatles, a British rock-and-roll quartet that had just scored its first No. 1 U.S. hit six days before with “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” At Kennedy, the “Fab Four”—dressed in mod suits and sporting their trademark pudding bowl haircuts—were greeted by 3,000 screaming fans who caused a near riot when the boys stepped off their plane and onto American soil.History

Black Lives Matter Movement goes to school to teach students about social justice
The National Education Association, one of the country’s largest teachers’ unions, encouraged its members to participate in activities from Feb. 1 to 5, but not just lesson plans. It called for implementing restorative justice practices, hiring more Black teachers, and mandating Black history and ethnic studies.Inquirer
They’re teaching first graders that white folks are racist. This makes the black kids hostile to the white kids who are made to feel guilt for sh*t they have nothing to do with!
Thank a democrat for this as well.
Jamie Alexander and his 11-year-old child, Ruby — who both live in Canada — created Rubies, which is branded as “form-fitting clothes for trans girls.”
This is just wrong.
The Times of Israel reports that according to the marketing materials, Alexander’s bathing suits for transsexual children “magically turn a pointy poker into a dainty dune.” Alexander isn’t the only one who thinks young boys should be encouraged to get off to an early start on alternate sexuality. The liberal establishment media, which has played a key role in driving this grotesque phenomenon, continues to push it enthusiastically. BuzzFeed proclaims in the headline that the line of swimwear for transsexual children is “much needed.” CNN presents this sick story as “inspiring, positive news.”Moonbattery
And we’re the bad guys…
Also on this day in history, a man spoke up for his countrymen:
In London on February 7, 1775, Benjamin Franklin publishes “An Imaginary Speech” in defense of American courage. Franklin’s speech was intended to counter an unnamed officer’s comments to Parliament that the British need not fear the colonial rebels, because “Americans are unequal to the People of this Country [Britain] in Devotion to Women, and in Courage, and worse than all, they are religious.” Franklin responded to the three-pronged critique with his usual wit and acuity. Noting that the colonial population had increased while the British population had declined, Franklin concluded that American men must therefore be more “effectually devoted to the Fair Sex” than their British brethren.History
If Franklin were around today, the state would take his writing’ sticks muy pronto.
