The Face of Repulsive Leftism

Featured image Last week we enjoyed some comic relief at the preciousness that is Pete Buttigieg, but in fact these MENSA-mongering types are actually quite horrific people—all would-be tyrants, full stop. Then there is the the smug, presumptuous, condescending, entitled type of progressive who barely bothers to concede his or her will to power over you, like Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance (naturally), who was the commencement »

“Poor Cat”

Featured image This video made me laugh. Riley Gaines munches on breakfast cereal with a deadpan expression while watching a lib’s self-absorbed TikTok video. The funny thing, as Riley notes, is that TikTok banned the video even though Riley does not utter a single word. Her only commentary is “poor cat,” which you will understand if you watch the lib woman’s litany: This video just got removed from my tik tok for »

Math For Dummies

Featured image It is an inconvenient truth that various ethnic groups do not, on average, perform equally well on objective measures of intellectual accomplishment. Mathematics is particularly problematic, in that results are hard to fudge–basically, answers are either right or wrong. Liberals have responded to this conundrum by dumbing down one discipline after another. Their theory is that if they lower standards far enough, they will arrive at a point where racial »

The Great Realignment

Featured image Matt Taibbi offers a bracing assessment of the current political landscape at Racket News and YouTube. “Campaign 2024: Not Left Versus Right, But Affluent Versus Everyone Else.” It is the sort of thing that ten years ago, I wouldn’t have taken seriously. But now… The realignment of major parties away from blue against red and toward a rich versus poor dynamic is America’s most undercovered political story. *** There are »

A Kinsley Gaffe

Featured image A Kinsley gaffe, of course, is when a politician inadvertently tells the truth. So, a footnote to yesterday’s IRS whistleblower hearing: Congressman Kweisi Mfume of Maryland denounces the Republicans’ criticisms of the Department of Justice, the FBI and the IRS. Why? Because it is the job of those agencies to “keep this democracy in check.” That is perhaps, in a single sentence, the clearest statement of the difference between the »

Woke Kindergarten

Featured image That is actually what they call it. Catrin Wigfall lifts the lid on a program that is even worse than what you probably expect from the public schools. In this case, we are talking about Minnesota’s Department of Education, but the same thing is going on across the country. It starts with bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo, but transitions quickly into hard-core leftism: The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is encouraging a divisive »

Five Essential Truths About the Modern Left

Featured image 1.  The left is thought to be soft on crime because of sympathy and compassion for people who are poor or from bad social circumstances. Today, however, large portions of the left actually approve of property crime because the left believes property crime is just a form of income redistribution. The tell on this truth is the number of leftists who say that businesses are insured, so what’s the big »

Where have all the left-wing flowers gone?

Featured image Matt Taibbi has made a valuable contribution to the documentation of the government’s suppression of heterodox and nonconforming speech on Twitter. He is an honest and dogged journalist. I have therefore sought to draw attention to his work in face of such denials and evasions as those to which FBI Director Christopher Wray testified under oath on July 12 before an occasionally showboating congressional committee last week. Taibbi wrote in »

Leftism, Fake & Real

Featured image Yesterday the story block below, ostensibly from the most hysterical climatista at the reliably left Guardian, appeared on Twitter: I can’t find this hed anywhere on The Guardian‘s website, so it must be fake. But a pretty good one, no? It’s the kind of thing crazy climatisas will say after every weather anomaly. On the other hand, this statement from the Diversity & Inclusion office of Johns Hopkins University is »

Moms For Hate?

Featured image The Southern Poverty Law Center is a far-left hate group with zero credibility. The people who run it are grifters: for a “poverty” organization it has a remarkable amount of money stashed in offshore accounts. SPLC literally doesn’t know what to do with all of the money that rich people and corporations shower on it. I am hoping defamation lawsuits can take up the slack. SPLC’s childishly simple dodge is »

What Is a Lawyer Good For?

Featured image The City University of New York has a law school that apparently is very far left. At this year’s commencement ceremony, a graduating law student who was elected by her classmates as their representative delivered a far-left screed: A graduate speaking at the City University of New York’s law school commencement called for a “revolution” to challenge oppressive institutions in the US — name-checking the “fascist” NYPD, military, Immigration and »

Our Illiterate College Students

Featured image How bad is America’s education system? Worse than you can possibly imagine. At George Washington University (annual cost $78,335, although probably no non-Chinese citizen actually pays that, as college tuition numbers are fraudulent), students protested against the school’s teams being called the “Colonials.” George Washington University changed its “Colonials” moniker to “Revolutionaries” after facing scrutiny from students who deemed the school’s mascot as offensive. Revolutionaries! I suppose we should be »

Feel Good Story of the Day

Featured image Actually, I’ve got two news stories that will bring a smile to your face and a bounce in your step. • The Sierra Club is facing significant layoffs: Sierra Club, the largest anti-nuclear environmental group in America, appears to be coming apart at the seams. Last month, Ben Jealous, the 130 year-old organization’s new Executive Director, announced major layoffs. The Sierra Club, he told employees, was restructuring and needed to »

Liberals Say: Let’s Kill Half the World’s People

Featured image The global liberal movement is trying to destroy modern, scientific agriculture. Liberals want organic farming–no intensive nitrogen fertilization–along with an end to animal husbandry and banning of pretty much all effective herbicides and pesticides. All great ideas, if you don’t care about billions of people dying. Just ask anyone in Sri Lanka or the Netherlands. Chris Morrison writes: The full horror of the ‘nitrogen’ war on agriculture is becoming more »

Eat Meat! (2)

Featured image In today’s developed world, average people can achieve a higher standard of living than has ever before been possible. In fact, the difference between an “elite” standard of living and that enjoyed by people of average, or a little more than average, means, has dwindled to near-insignificance. It is fair to say that today, an “elite” American has little more chance of living a satisfying and happy life than the »

A Dystopian Vision

Featured image Comfortably Smug foresees the future, not so far off, in our blue cities: Imagine living in a liberal city in five years. Cooking a can of bugs over an electric range and drinking bud light. — Comfortably Smug (@ComfortablySmug) May 9, 2023 That vision may actually be optimistic, as it doesn’t mention being assaulted if you venture out from your apartment to buy a fresh supply of bugs and Bud »

Communists Love Free Enterprise

Featured image Of all living Americans, Angela Davis may have the most disgraceful history. She is a Communist–her description, not mine; she was twice the Communist Party’s candidate for vice president, and was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize by the Soviet Union. She once participated in the murder of a judge in California. She was acquitted of the crime by a biased jury, but there was never any serious doubt about her »
