Liberals

Sue the Bastards! [Updated]

Featured image Not all liberals are evil, but it is becoming increasingly clear that 21st-century liberalism is an evil ideology. It incites race hatred for political advantage. It tries to keep disadvantaged people down, so they will stay on the Democratic Party plantation. It lies about pretty much everything–for example, “police violence.” And liberals almost never debate public policy issues in time-honored fashion; rather, they try to destroy anyone who disagrees with »

It’s Open War on Christianity

Featured image We have been writing about the growing anti-Semitism of the Democratic Party, but don’t kid yourself: the Left hates Christianity more than it does Judaism. The Left’s bigotry has manifested itself over the last few days in connection with Karen Pence, the vice-president’s wife. David French explains (links omitted): Karen Pence is a believing Christian woman. She took a part-time job at a private Christian school. And this, believe it »

Walls Across America

Featured image Walls, Nancy Pelosi tells us, are immoral. Also, they don’t work. Which ostensibly is why the Democrats have gone to the mat over Southern border security. Of course, the idea that walls “don’t work” flies in the face of common sense and experience. So the Daily Caller has initiated a “Walls Across America” project. Caller reporter Benny Johnson goes from place to place, pointing out that when leftists want to »

Gillette Follow-Up: Why Did They Do It?

Featured image The Gillette anti-men ad that I wrote about here continues to spark controversy. Most in the advertising industry seem to think it was marvelous. This raises interesting questions: Why, exactly, do companies wade into the culture wars? Especially when they join a side that is either a minority or, at best, a bare majority? How does this make sense? Glenn Reynolds notes: Adweek pronounced Gehrig’s group libel the “Ad of »

“The Dark Night of Fascism Is Always Descending…

Featured image …in the United States and yet lands only in Europe,” as Tom Wolfe first said. I would offer a corollary: political violence is always descending from the right, yet when it lands, it nearly always comes from the left. Thus, for example, liberals love to talk about hate, but somehow they never mention the great political hater of our time, Bernie Bro James Hodgkinson, who took a rifle to a »

Anti-Communism Is a Hate Crime?

Featured image From Seattle comes one of the most extraordinary news stories I can recall, courtesy of the left-wing Seattle Post-Intelligencer: “White nationalist fliers found in West Seattle, Tacoma, other Puget Sound cities.” The subhead: “The fliers referenced a hate group and featured a Cold War-era slogan.” What did those “white nationalist” flyers say? Here they are: The powers that be in Seattle seem to have the impression that it is illegal »

You Want Hate? Here’s Hate

Featured image There is a lot of talk these days about hate in our public discourse. In truth, much of what is denounced as “hate,” especially by the Left, could more properly be described as disagreement. But every once in a while you come across the real article. As in the case of Lara Kollab, an American Muslim from Ohio, who was fired from a residency at the Cleveland Clinic, one of »

Free Mumia? [Updated]

Featured image Mumia Abu-Jamal (formerly known as Wesley Cook) murdered Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. He was caught and prosecuted. The evidence against him was overwhelming. There is no doubt about his guilt. He was convicted by a jury and initially was sentenced to death, but his sentence was reduced to life imprisonment without parole in 2001. He exhausted his appeals long ago, and has been imprisoned since 1982. Abu-Jamal »

The Hypocrisy of Nike

Featured image We were surprised when Nike launched a major advertising campaign featuring former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and even more surprised when it seemed to work. Nike’s sales went up, and the company attributed the increase in part to Kaepernick chic. The tag line of Nike’s Kaepernick ad was, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” Of course, Colin Kaepernick didn’t sacrifice everything by taking an anti-American stance–only, at most, »

Progressives Are Crazy

Featured image That is a proposition for which we see overwhelming evidence on a daily basis. For today, consider these two videos of progressives gone mad. The first features, to all appearances, a man with long hair. But he goes insane in a game store when he considers himself to be “misgendered.” My favorite moment is when he threatens to “tell the entire LGBTQ community” about the horror he has experienced. PJMedia »

So Now the Democrats Are Hawks?

Featured image I would have said there was no possible way the Democrats could be persuaded to advocate stationing ground troops in the Middle East, but President Trump proved me wrong. When he announced the withdrawal of 2,000 personnel from Syria–honestly, I am not sure I even realized they were there–the Democrats erupted in unanimous condemnation. It is absolutely necessary that the United States have boots on the ground in Syria! So »

More Than an Athlete? [with comment by Paul]

Featured image Lebron James is perhaps the most privileged person on the face of the Earth. Graced with once-in-a-generation athletic talent, he also happens to be 6 feet, 8 inches tall. And, best of all, he was born in the United States of America. Our free enterprise system has allowed James to parlay his talent, and lots of hard work, into an $85 million a year income. Not bad! But not enough »

Is There a Sane Left Left?

Featured image Today’s data point in favor of a negative answer is this absurd article in Vox, a web site for low-information millennials: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should run for president and dare the Supreme Court to stop her, argues @mattyglesias. https://t.co/sis9kkuzGH — Vox (@voxdotcom) December 12, 2018 Why should a superstar like Ms. Ocasio-Cortez have to wait until she is 35? Heck, she hasn’t even taken office yet and is already the darling »

Settled Science: There Really Are ‘Latte Liberals’

Featured image I’m sure most readers took note of the hoax identity politics academic journal articles recently, but I have found a real article that you could easily suppose to be a hoax. The article is “The Real Reason Liberals Drink Lattes,” and it appears in PS, which is a secondary journal of the American Political Science Association (APSA). (That’s PS, not BS, you wiseacres out there!) This relevant bit of social »

Camping out in Minneapolis

Featured image Heading downtown Minneapolis several times a week, we watched a so-called homeless encampment grow on a small strip of land along Hiawatha Avenue just before it funnels traffic downtown onto Seventh Street. A tribute to the broken-windows theory of policing, the encampment grew up virtually overnight. Bordering a subsidized Native American housing complex, residents of the encampment reflect the Indian tilt of their neighbors. At one point we saw teepees »

Quiz Time: Who Said It?

Featured image Regarding the “irredeemable deplorables”—the white working class that liberals now openly disdain—a few perceptive liberals have pointed back to something written in 1998 by Richard Rorty, the “neo-pragmatist” epigone of John Dewey, in his book Achieving Our Country: Members of labor unions, and unorganized unskilled workers, will sooner or later realize that their government is not even trying to prevent wages from sinking or to prevent jobs from being exported. »

Liberal Racism in Action

Featured image Yesterday we reported on research showing liberal attempts to measure “implicit” racism may actually make racial bias worse, and today there is research out of Yale confirming that the racism of liberals is more than just “implicit.” See if you can notice the howler in the very first paragraph of this press release from the Yale School of Management: White Liberals Present Themselves as Less Competent in Interactions with African-Americans »
