  • The New York Times Must Explain Why Its Racial Double Standard Is Good For Society

    The New York Times announced this week that it had hired Sarah Jeong as a new member of its editorial board. As is the unfortunate custom in the modern media age, this hiring led to a dissection of Jeong’s Twitter history in the hopes of finding something offensive. It did not take long for offensive things to be discovered. But in this case the offensive content came with a twist unique to the age of privilege. What the tweets described — and there were many — was how horrible white people are. Among her many discriminatory tweets about white people,...

    A dean at the University of Georgia apologized after calling a Republican gubernatorial candidate a “nice guy” and receiving “racism” and “privilege”-related backlash on Twitter. UGA journalism and mass communication dean Charles Davis congratulated Georgia politician Brian Kemp on winning the state’s GOP primary, but deleted the remark after backlash, according to Campus Reform. “I went to high school with GOP guv candidate [Brian Kemp],” Davis said initially. “We played YMCA ball from childhood. Politics be damned. He is a nice guy, always was. Kind to a fault. He’s a friend, always has been, and will be when we’re old(er)...

    If you will pay attention, you will notice that Sacha Baron Cohen has fooled a lot of people in positions of authority and power. It is becoming apparent that a lot of these people do not pay attention to what's going on. That causes me some concern. People who are supposed to be leaders making important decisions should be aware of what is going on around them. It is very interesting that a gun shop owner who is not a person of high authority quickly recognized who he was. It seems to me that people with a solid foundation of...

    Zoo authorities in China say a kangaroo has been killed and another injured at Fuzhou Zoo in south-eastern Fujian province after visitors threw rocks into their enclosure. Local media said the 12-year-old female kangaroo was "pelted" with rocks by visitors, with a sharp stone injuring its left foot and causing bleeding. Pics of the bricks that visitors hurled at kangaroos at the zoo in Fujian, killing one and injuring another. Zoo staff say visitors often throw objects at animals despite it being ‘prohibited’. An autopsy reportedly showed the kangaroo probably died due to a ruptured kidney, after zookeepers treated the...

    One kangaroo was killed and another injured at a zoo in southeast China after visitors to their enclosure pelted the animals with rocks and other objects in an apparent attempt to get the kangaroos to hop around. The abuse has sparked fury online and prompted renewed scrutiny into the mistreatment of animals at Chinese zoos, several of which have gained notoriety in recent years for cramped and cruel conditions. Zookeepers at the Fuzhou Zoo in Fujian Province told the Haixia Metropolis News this week that at least one visitor threw “multiple” sharp-edged rocks at a 12-year-old female kangaroo in March...

    A new canon to be inserted in the Code of Canon Law, dedicated to the “grave duty” of the Christian faithful not only “not to harm” but also to “improve” the natural environment. This is the proposal that Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, President Emeritus of the Dicastery for Legislative Texts, intends to make to Pope Francis, as he himself announced during the meeting entitled “Dialogue on Catholic Investments for the Energy Transition”, held in Rome last 12 July 2018. The meeting was an opportunity for discussion - behind closed doors - between representatives of Vatican institutions, foundations and Catholic organizations committed...

    Top Maryland officials have asked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help ensure that the state’s election system is secure after learning that a Russian-backed firm is linked to the Maryland state Board of Elections. Gov. Larry Hogan (R), Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert) and House Speaker Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel) sent a joint letter on Friday to Homeland Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen asking for technical assistance to evaluate the network utilized by the state board. Miller and Busch said late Friday during a hastily called news conference in Annapolis that the FBI briefed them...

    A study of U.S. Navy statistics from Fox News tells a story of two presidential administrations, at least in terms of Iranian provocations of the U.S. military. (Snip) Iranian vessels pestered American naval ships only 14 times in 2017, Trump’s first year, and that number has fallen to an incredible zero occurrences of Iranian aggression so far in 2018.

    On the eve of America’s Birthday, CNN played up a Gallup poll that suggested only 47 percent of Americans were “extremely proud” to be an American during Tuesday's edition of OutFront. To get their own unofficial tally on the mood of the country, the network found it amusing to send out reporter Jeanne Moos to interview New Yorkers about their level of patriotism. Of course, they highlighted the bitter anti-Trump liberals of the city.

    Alec Baldwin may not be satisfied merely playing the President of the United States on Saturday Night Live; instead, he may actually want the real job for himself. On Monday, Baldwin—who won an Emmy last year for his portrayal of Donald Trump on SNL—told Howard Stern that he could beat the current Commander in Chief if he decided to run for the top office in 2020. Should we add Baldwin’s name to the growing list of celebrities tied to the White House? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Oprah Winfrey could use some company. While discussing the 2020 election, Baldwin said...

    Philadelphia’s Mayor Democrat Jim Kenney slammed President Trump for disinviting the Eagles from visiting the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win. In a sharply worded statement Kenney defends his city’s NFL team writing, “Disinviting them from the White House only proves that our President is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party to which no one wants to attend.”

    Reagan’s daughter: My dad would be ‘appalled’ by Trump presidency Ronald Reagan would be “appalled” by the Trump presidency, daughter Patty Davis tells the Washington Post. In a letter written on the occasion of the anniversary her father’s June 5, 2004 death, Davis said Reagan would be “pretty horrified at where we’ve come to.” “He would be appalled and heartbroken,” she wrote, “at a Congress that refuses to stand up to a president who not only seems ignorant of the Constitution but who also attempts at every turn to dismantle and mock our system of checks and balances.” Davis, 65,...

    De Blasio wants to scrap admissions testing for elite high schools Mayor de Blasio unveiled a plan Saturday to boost black and Latino enrollment at the city’s eight specialized high schools — and he wants to scrap admissions tests outright. In an op-ed for education-news site Chalkbeat, de Blasio announced that 20 percent of seats at those eight schools would be reserved for low-income applicants. Kids in the Department of Education’s Discovery Program who score just below the admissions cut-off would be given one of those saved seats, according to the plan. De Blasio said he will fight to eventually...

    Having been involved in the public discourse with the left since Reagan was in office, I have found universally that liberals love it when you hate them, but will go apoplectic with rage if you laugh at them. Using plays on words or rhymes (hey hey, ho ho...) appropriates their chosen form of ridicule and uses it against them, further deepening the wounds. So, based on years and years of making liberals supremely angry at me, I move that we refer to David Hogg’s brain dead, bereft of logic, two standard deviations left of the bell curve followers as “Hogglodytes”....
