Kanye v Kaepernick — Breaking Ranks

on October 18, 2018, 6:46 AM / in Opinion

Any break from the Democrat Party orthodoxy poses an existential threat to their electability. “We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all matters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act […]

Did you noticed in the Supreme Court nominee hearings that some women harbor unresolved anger toward men? In 2017, the most angry of the lot emerged under the #MeToo identity-politics banner— with legitimate allegations of sexual misconduct in the workplace. Most notable were those that brought down Harvey […]

36% of Black Americans Support Whom?

on August 30, 2018, 7:37 AM / in Opinion

Democrats and their Leftmedia talkingheads don’t think black lives matter — beyond the voting booth. When the great Stanford economist Thomas Sowell was still writing his syndicated column, he would occasionally submit “Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene.” In one such offering on the prevalence of racism, as a black American he observed, “Racism is not dead, but it is on life support […]

The greatest threat to the First Amendment and freedom of the press is the Leftmedia. “Patriotism is as much a virtue as justice, and is as necessary for the support of societies as natural affection is for the support of families.” —Benjamin Rush (1773) In a non-contextual defense of the mass media, I often see cited the following quote: “Where […]

From Uncivil Discourse to Civil War?

on August 16, 2018, 2:02 PM / in Opinion

Historic socialist assaults on Liberty were not as organized and targeted, nor did they have the tacit approval of a major political party. The Democrat Party’s fastest growing identity-politics constituency has, for the last decade, been coalescing around a theme that is both animating and destructive: Hate. The current chorus of contemptible rhetoric comes from leftist Demo antagonists, their Leftmedia propagandists whose ad revenues depend […]
