More Evidence that Liberals Are Intolerant

Featured image YouGov did an interesting poll in connection with the U.K. election. It is a couple of simple questions with a striking disparity of responses between Conservatives and Labourites, and between Leavers and Remainers: Labour voters (41%) and Remain voters (40%) are much more likely to judge someone else negatively for voting differently to them than Conservative voters (19%) and Leave voters (13%)https://t.co/vYue4Qi3lk pic.twitter.com/WtdsFrlCIG — YouGov (@YouGov) December 9, 2019 We »

Slavery? We Were a Footnote

Featured image Liberals are trying to rewrite American history, teaching our children that the only thing that ever happened here–until they came along a year or two ago!–was slavery. The New York Times’s 1619 Project, which is being enthusiastically adopted by the nation’s public schools, is the culmination of years of left-wing propaganda. The liberals’ task is made easier by the fact that world history is mostly terra incognita to America’s young »

So Long, Sacagawea

Featured image The City Council of Charlottesville, Virginia has voted to remove a statue of Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and Sacagawea, their Shoshone interpreter, from a street in the city: The city council voted to direct city staff to create a plan for the removal of the West Main Street statue commemorating the Lewis and Clark expedition during a work session Friday. *** At the work session, councilors discussed the statue with »

Citizens of Nowhere

Featured image This piece in Commentary by Bruce Bawer (“The ‘Global Citizen’ Fraud”) deserves wide attention. Citizenship is out; patriotism is in disgrace; borders are passe. One Worldism and Global Citizenship are the order of the day. There are few greater threats to our freedom. Bawer writes: On September 24, Donald Trump told the United Nations General Assembly that “the future does not belong to the globalists. The future belongs to the »

Psycho, WaPo style

Featured image The subsequently revised Washington Post headline over the obituary of the killin’ caliph is a headline that will live in infamy among those who follow the mainstream media with a gimlet eye. In the eyes of the Post, the maniacal murderer was an “austere religious scholar.” The Post headline aptly reflected the Trump derangement that has gripped the Post and its peers. If Trump had something to do with al-Baghdadi’s »

Math–It’s Oppressive!

Featured image The Seattle public schools have developed a new “ethnic studies” curriculum that tells students that mathematics is a tool of oppression. Sure, some of us thought that back in junior high school, especially when we didn’t get around to doing our homework. But to have this view endorsed by the schools is remarkable. Robby Soave reports at Reason: The [Seattle public school] district has proposed a new social justice-infused curriculum »

She Would Have Stood a Better Chance Against Polar Bears

Featured image Dr. Susan Crockford is one of the world’s leading experts on polar bears. As such, she has repeatedly reported the inconvenient fact that polar bears are thriving, with their populations burgeoning. Why is this fact inconvenient? Because climate change activists have chosen polar bears–considered to be cute by people who don’t have to deal with them–as a propaganda tool. We have quoted Dr. Crockford’s work a number of times: here, »

Liberals Smash All Norms of Civility [Updated] [With comment by Paul]

Featured image President Trump is often described as a bull in a china shop, but one wonders: what, exactly, is the china shop? The Democrats have debased our public life to the point where it is more apt to say that Trump is a bull trying to defend himself in a slaughterhouse. You could adduce instances of the Democrats’ lack of the most basic decency every day; here are just two for »

Omar Lies About the “Rich”

Featured image One of the ironies of contemporary politics is that Democrats and the press (to repeat) maintain a constant hysteria over President Trump’s “lies,” most of which are simply disagreements, while their own utterances bear little or no resemblance to the truth. A case in point is Ilhan Omar, Minnesota’s far-left Squad member. Omar, like all of her fellow Democrats, constantly accuses President Trump of “lying.” Here is one of many »

How Evil Is the Left? This Evil

Featured image I wrote here about the riot that occurred in downtown Minneapolis during and after President Trump’s rally last Thursday night. Trump supporters were assaulted, their vehicles were blocked, police officers and police horses were attacked, and so on. This video, filmed by Alpha News, shows how violent and disgusting the “protest” by liberal Democrats was: You might think that in the aftermath of such appalling lawlessness, mainstream Democratic politicians would »

Man! I Feel Like a Woman

Featured image The boy Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, says mean Twitter messages made him feel like a woman, bringing to mind (for me, anyway) Shania Twain. But let’s set the stage: President Trump planned a major rally at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. Frey publicly stated that he would like to bar the president from entering his city, but sadly lacks the power to do so–that pesky Constitution again! He »

Dairy Cows: Tangled Up In the Green New Deal [with comment by Steve]

Featured image The Green New Deal, and similar environmental initiatives, have little to do with the environment and much to do with the Left’s desire to control every aspect of our lives. Because everything we do, beginning with breathing, involves emission of carbon dioxide or other “greenhouse gases.” AOC’s Green New Deal specifically proposed, among other things, that all air travel be banned and that all cows be done away with because »

City of Minneapolis Tries to Derail Trump Rally

Featured image President Trump is scheduled to speak at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis on Thursday. At the eleventh hour, the boy Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, has tried to block the rally by sending Target Center an absurd bill for “security.” The Star Tribune reports: Tensions between Minneapolis city leaders and President Donald Trump’s campaign escalated Monday when the campaign threatened to sue the city for trying to force it »

Ban All the Red Hats?

Featured image “Fascist” is a word that gets tossed around a lot these days, almost always inappropriately. For the most part, it is a meaningless epithet. And yet there are a few people, at least, to whom the label applies. Which brings me to this Rasmussen Reports survey. The question was asked: A suggestion has been made to ban all red caps in America because pro-Trump Make America Great hats are red »

Memes Only [Updated]

Featured image I spent the afternoon at the White House, attending a briefing by White House staff on the administration’s policy agenda for the coming months. It was very interesting, but off the record. I will write about it at some point, but for now it is memes only. A bunch of anti-civilization demonstrators vowed to shut D.C. down today. I stayed close to the White House and didn’t see them, but »

Climate Confessions and Liberal Voodoo

Featured image It would take a better psychologist than I am to untangle the liberal mind. For some reason, liberals are wracked by guilt, convinced that they are somehow destroying our planet, even though the scientific evidence is all to the contrary. So they engage in a sort of voodoo: ritual behavior intended to ward off evils, even though there is no rational basis to believe that there is any connection. NBC »

What’s the Deal With Blackface? [Updated]

Featured image Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been engulfed in a blackface controversy, and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving twit. As more old photos and videos tumble out of the closet, the BBC headlines: “Canada’s Justin Trudeau cannot say how often he wore blackface.” Three or four instances have come to light so far, and Trudeau says there may be more. He really can’t remember, despite being only 47 »
