The Women’s March Is Melting Down, And It Makes Perfect Sense

January 21, 2019 by

2

By Kelsey Harkness ~ Two years into the movement, the Women’s March is melting down. Much of the media will blame its decay on the leaders’ unwillingness to denounce anti-Semitism, but that will only be part of the story. The other reason it will ultimately demise is because it was a fraud from the very […]

November 3, 2018 by

3

By Genevieve Wood ~ What’s the difference between a conservative and a progressive? Here are three examples. No. 1: Conservatives and progressives have different views about individuals and communities. Conservatives ask: “What can I do for myself, my family, my community, and my fellow citizens?” Progressives ask: “What is unfair?” “What am I owed?” “What […]

How The Left Became So Intolerant

December 13, 2017 by

1

By Kim Holmes ~ When most people think of intolerance, they imagine a racist taunting a black person. Or they think of the white supremacist who killed a demonstrator in Charlottesville, Virginia. It seldom occurs to them that intolerance comes in all political shapes and sizes. A protester storming a stage and refusing to let […]

‘Terrorism Knows No Color’

August 15, 2017 by

1

By Frank Salvato ~ The title is a quote from a Facebook post in reaction to the senseless and fatal attack that took place at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday. Truer words have seldom been spoken. Frankly, the divisive lunacy masquerading as a push for tolerant “diversity” – now turning belligerent and violent in […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ A burrito stand in Portland has been closed down after social justice warriors attacked the two owners – white women – of cultural appropriation from Mexicans. Next step: ban Mexicans from making pizzas. The right-on Portland Mercury claims credit for closing down the stand for crimes against identity politics: Portland has […]

By Cynthia E. Ayers ~ “If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the […]

The Left’s Persecution Of Real Refugees From Islam And Communism

February 10, 2017 by

1

By Daniel Greenfield ~ The President of the United States announced that refugees fleeing persecution by a totalitarian regime would be deported. It did not matter that they had risked their lives to come here. They would be sent back. No leftist lawyers crammed airports. No protesters chanted at terminals. No celebrities offered sanctimonious lectures […]

Prosecute The Rioters

By Andrew C McCarthy ~ And make sure that we condemn them as well. From time to time over the years, the eminent historian Daniel Pipes has lamented that treason, not just as a crime but as a concept, appears defunct in the West. The question of bringing treason charges against jihadists has been raised from […]

Latest Fairness Crisis: Breakfast Sandwich Inequality

October 14, 2015 by

0

By Tom Blumer ~ Life is so unfair. “The rich” live in nicer places, have nicer amenities, drive nicer cars, etc., etc. Here’s the last straw: Now they even have better breakfast sandwiches. But never fear: The press’s inequality police are on patrol to supply the outrage. Six months ago, Pete Wells at the New York […]

The End Of Columbus Day Is The End Of America

October 13, 2015 by

1

By Daniel Greenfield ~ Columbus may have outfoxed the Spanish court and his rivals, but he is falling victim to the court of political correctness. The explorer who discovered America has become controversial because the very idea of America has become controversial. There are counter-historical claims put forward by Muslim and Chinese scholars claiming that […]

Caitlin Jenner? Hello Sucker!

By Alan Caruba ~ It doesn’t matter that Bruce Jenner, famed Olympic athlete and member of the Kardashian family, thinks that he is female. He can never be female no matter what surgery he undertakes to make it reflect the fantasy in his head. Born a male, his body is a billion cells and nerve […]

Progressives And The Continued Urban Slaughter

April 25, 2014 by

1

By Frank Salvato ~ Over the Easter weekend, the City of Chicago experienced a rash of violence that eclipsed anything taking place on the battlefields of Afghanistan or in the uncivilized Taliban-held territories of Pakistan’s border region. 18 people were shot in several incidents, 13 of them dying from their wounds. This is nothing new […]

Why Does The Left No Longer Admit It?

March 3, 2014 by

2

By Andrew Bolt ~ Conservatives must be winning. We’ve made the Left so ashamed, they are running a mile from the word. All over the country, ageing Leftists are hiding their Che Guevara T-shirts and pulling on cardigans and “who me?” expressions. Take last Friday, when Left-wing publisher Morry Schwartz went on the Left-wing ABC […]

November 13, 2013 by

2

By Michelle Malkin ~ It’s confirmed: The “F” in John. F. Kerry stands for “Feckless.” Women around the world no longer need to wonder whether America’s secretary of state will stand boldly with them in defense of their basic rights. He won’t. On Monday, Kerry was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Anyone with a phone or […]

Picking Through The Political Detritus

November 8, 2013 by

1

By Alan Caruba ~ The outcomes of elections allows us to pick through the detritus in an effort to “make sense” of the choices voters made. I will begin with a prediction that, before this century is over, Colorado will split into two states as momentum builds for its northern counties to revisit the secession […]

Progressives, Dems Slap The Faces Of Benghazi Dead

This Election Cycle Is About…Revolution

November 1, 2010 by

0

By Frank Salvato The midterm elections coming up this November 2nd are perhaps the most important election since the US Civil War. Where the 1864 election came in the midst of a war that tore families apart, saw brothers fighting brothers and the fate of the Union and the issue of slavery hanging in the […]

Obama’s Fatal Flaw

October 26, 2010 by

0

By Nancy Morgan On the campaign trail last month, Obama lambasted Republicans, saying, “Republicans have not come up with one new idea.” Putting aside the fact that Obama is ‘factually incorrect,’ (see Rep. Paul Ryan’s ‘A Roadmap for America’s Future‘) his statement embodies the fatal flaw of progressivism. Winston Churchill said, “The farther backward you […]

Pampered, Selfish Robin Hoods

September 30, 2010 by

0

By Tom McLaughlin Liberals love to pat themselves on the back for giving away other people’s money. Latter-day Robin Hoods, they love to tax the “rich” and give to the “poor,” but they’re as tight as the bark on a tree with their own money. Do they rationalize that they give away so much of […]

The Progressive Span and the Bridge to Healthcare Reform

October 25, 2009 by

Recently some conservatives have rejoiced in the appearance that they have slowed down the Democratic Juggernaut billed as health care reform. While simultaneously the DNC and the White House have persistently insisted they “have never been closer to passing meaningful healthcare reform”, asserting that the momentum for such a policy lies with them. What gives? […]
