  • Antifa and the Collectivist Way of War

    American Thinker ^ | 17 Aug, 2019 | Paul Krause
    The Left cannot denounce Antifa because Antifa embodies the very ethos of war and violence that collectivism needs to thrive on. To assail Antifa would be to attack the heart of the cancerous poison that is destroying liberty oriented societies. Michael Oakeshott was one of the preeminent English-speaking conservative philosophers and writers of the last century. His essay “The Political Economy of Freedom” is as relevant today as when it was published in 1949 in the aftermath of the Second World War, the rise of the bureaucratic welfare state, and the dawn of the Cold War. Oakeshott offers cold insights...
  • Firewall: American Fascists-Bill Whittle's new video. March 24, 2016

    03/24/2016 7:04:39 AM PDT · by SJackson · 14 replies
    Left/right, Progressive/Conservative, Democrat/Republican... The names change and evolve but the core difference remains constant: The Collectivists vs. The Individualists. In his latest FIREWALL video, Bill Whittle -- TruthRevolt commentator and Director of the Firewall at the Horowitz Freedom Center -- shows how violence, disruption and intimidation have always been the tools of the Collectivists. Video at source, transcript below: Hi everybody. I’m Bill Whittle and this is the Firewall: Well, this election year is getting ugly, and it’s going to get uglier. There have been several massive disruptions both inside and outside of Donald Trump rallies, and more are promised....

    This is very Orwellian: Definition #3 of fascism is "a person who...has extreme right-wing views." Evidently, those who favor smaller government and greater individual liberty are fascists.

  • Maxine Waters: Obama Would Never Tell The Jews Or Gays To Stop Complaining

    Looks like Barack Obama really made an impression on the Congressional Black Caucus this weekend — but not the one he intended. Maxine Waters tells CBS that she’s not sure exactly who Obama thought he was addressing, and claimed that the CBC has worked a whole lot more on unemployment than the President has, without whining about their critics. But Waters goes one better by telling CBS that Obama wouldn’t have dared telling a couple of other identity groups to stop griping:

    It seems that every other day, one hears of another "crisis" that must be dealt with immediately -- by government expansion. Examples include everything from swine flu to global warming to the rising cost of health care. We are warned that we need the government to protect us. We are asked to sacrifice. We are told that there is no time to think, and we must act immediately -- Washington will do the thinking for us.

    The more I observe U.S. politics, the more I am sickened by racial politics. Don't get me wrong; this is also an observable trend in Europe. The fact is that race and nationality have always been explosive issues. Politicians and political interest groups know this and use it to damage or completely discredit the opposing ideology. Liberals in the U.S. would have you believe that conservatism or rightist politics is the source of all racist thought in America. To believe this, one would have to ignore history completely and the fact that many of the most brutal racist policies the...

    Russian president may have halted operations, but Russia could still 'defend' itself against Georgian armed resistance. While Russian President Dimitry Medvedev might have called a halt to operations he deliberately left open the possibility of combat by allowing his forces to "defend themselves" from Georgian armed resistance. In characteristically blunt style, Russia also used a show of military force to warn Georgia against taking strategic advantage of Moscow's decision to end hostilities. Within an hour of the order to halt action, the Daily Telegraph witnessed Russian helicopter gunships launch missile strikes deep inside undisputed Georgian territory. The attacks, which were...

    Red diaper baby Barack Obama's collectivist beliefs go way back. We dug up an enlightening old article, "What Makes Obama Run?" (by Hank De Zutter, Chicago Reader, Dec. 8, 1995) that offers more insight into what Obama, the Democrats' presumptive presidential candidate, thinks about America and traditional American values. The short answer: not much. In it Obama, at that time a candidate for the Illinois Senate, criticizes individualism as what intellectual John Ralston Saul has called the cult of the Hero: "In America," Obama says, "we have this strong bias toward individual action. You know, we idolize the John Wayne...

    Decision '08: In a commencement speech at Wesleyan University, Barack Obama advised graduates not to pursue the American dream of success. Ivy League graduates who live in big homes can be selfish, you know.President Kennedy once spoke of a rising tide that would lift all boats. Obama wants us to pull into shore and tie them to a dock. Worse than that, a disturbing pattern of rhetoric indicates he will not only counsel a draconian lifestyle, but also mandate it. The man who made over $4 million last year, who lives in a $1.65 million house and who probably doesn't...

    The Trial of Hank Rearden from ' Atlas Shrugged ' by Ayn Rand For a month in advance, the people who filled the courtroom had been told by the press that they would see the man who was a greedy enemy of society; but they had come to see the man who had invented Rearden Metal. He stood up, when the judges called upon him to do so. He wore a grey suit, he had pale blue eyes and blond hair; it was not the colours that made his figure seem icily implacable, it was the fact that the suit...

    Rugged American individualism could hinder our ability to understand other peoples' point of view, a new study suggests. And in contrast, the researchers found that Chinese are more skilled at understanding other people's perspectives, possibly because they live in a more "collectivist" society. "This cultural difference affects the way we communicate," said study co-author and cognitive psychologist Boaz Keysar of the University of Chicago. The study, though oversimplified compared to real life, was instructive. Keysar and his colleagues arranged two blocks on a table so participants could see both. However, a piece of cardboard obstructed the view of one block...

    President Bush's 2005 Kwanzaa message began with the patently absurd statement: "African-Americans and people around the world reflect on African heritage during Kwanzaa." I believe more African-Americans spent this season reflecting on the birth of Christ than some phony non-Christian holiday invented a few decades ago by an FBI stooge. Kwanzaa is a holiday for white liberals, not blacks. It is a fact that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI stooge, Ron Karenga, aka Dr. Maulana Karenga. Karenga was a founder of United Slaves, a violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers and a dupe of...

According to student evaluations made available to the public, Professor Churchill’s most recent grades are anything but great.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - An animal rights activist pleaded not guilty Tuesday to domestic terrorism charges that he freed mink from Midwestern farms in 1997, causing thousands of dollars in damage and spreading fear through the nation's fur farmers. Peter Daniel Young, 27, made the plea in U.S. District Court in Madison as he appeared for the first time on the charges after eluding authorities for more than seven years. Judge Theresa M. Owens ordered Young held without bail, saying he is "a flight risk and danger to the community." Investigators say Young is part of the Animal Liberation Front,...
