    Were Native Americans really kinder, gentler and more spiritual? I used to, on some level, accept the popular notion that Native Americans were more spiritual and in tune with nature than European Americans, and that it was European Americans who brought war, sexism, and environmental degradation to an otherwise innocent, peaceful and Edenic Native America. As a kid I bought slim paperbacks from the Scholastic Book Club that taught me that Native Americans planted dead fish in their agricultural fields in order to fertilize them. I learned that North American Indians didn't have the wheel, bronze, iron, or steel, or...

    Well, it’s Christopher Columbus Day again. And this, of course, means that it is but another occasion for leftists everywhere to repudiate their own civilization. For a few decades now, the 15th century European explorer’s face has been held up as that of Western civilization, i.e. the face of all that is evil in the world. Columbus is the proverbial poster child for the White, Christian, Heterosexual Male, i.e. the contemporary left’s version of Public Enemy Number One. Columbus Day assumes a new significance this year, however, for monuments to Columbus are no longer alone in being targeted for destruction...
  • JENKINS: The absurdity, hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy of ‘multiculturalism’

    As Americans, there’s much we can learn from other cultures. In fact, one of the best things about this country is the way we incorporate so many wonderful aspects of so many different cultures, from food and music to clothing and customs. If that’s what “multiculturalism” meant, it would indeed be a good thing. Unfortunately, it’s not, at least for progressives. To them, multiculturalism is the idea that all cultures are equal — that no culture is superior to any other. That’s patently absurd. It’s obvious to any intellectually honest person that western culture, rooted in Judeo-Christian values, has given...

    He’s been cheered and condemned, boosted and banned… and now he’s at ideacity to offer perspectives from the front lines of the political correctness battleground. Professor and clinical psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson believes that no matter how controversial, we must recognize the importance of free speech – particularly on college campuses. (This is an excellent take down of the scourge of postmodernism that is responsible for the cultural rot that is destroying the western world, from multiculturalism, relativism, egalitarianism, neo-marxism, etc. He's a passionate, eloquent, courageous and intelligent speaker on a mission, and who may single handedly end up saving...

    The DACA issue compels us to confront our time’s either-or: patriotism or multiculturalism? We can’t have it both ways; which shall it be? Though it would have been unthinkable at any other period in history, most of the intellectual class chooses multiculturalism. Their preference, that is to say, is not for the interests of their own country, but for those of non-Americans. This is bizarre, for while patriotism, like so much else in human affairs, is a mixed thing—often crossing over into a crass and dangerous nationalism, for example—it does refer to actual practices and customs, embodied values whereby people...

    RUSH: What essentially happened here at the University of Pennsylvania, Penn, a couple of professors, one of them working at the University of Pennsylvania, the other one University of San Diego, wrote an op-ed suggesting that what might be needed in the United States is a return to some of the nation’s values and moralities of the 1950s. And what happened after that op-ed ran is the story. “To the list of forbidden ideas on American college campuses, add ‘bourgeois norms.'” In other words, the old advisories of hard work, self-discipline, marriage, respect for authority. When people talk about going...

    August 30, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A Spanish bishop apologized for an event in his diocese during which a Hindu deity was processed around a Catholic church and the priest who allowed it resigned from his position as Vicar General. However, the bishop said Hindu beliefs don't need to be "rebuked" and that wasn't the point of his statement. It's unclear whether the priest, Father Juan José Mateos Castro, will remain in his position at that parish, Our Lady of Africa. Bishop Rafael Zornoza Boy of the Diocese of Cádiz y Ceuta issued the apology, portions of which Crux translated. A...

    Erricka Bridgeford was 12 when she first saw a man die because he found himself at the wrong end of a bullet on Baltimore's streets. More than 30 years later, she’s pursuing a city-wide 72-hour ceasefire that began midnight Thursday to end a recent wave of violence that's taken hold of her Chesapeake Bay home. Although it has less than a tenth of New York City's population, Baltimore has suffered 48 more homicides in 2017, according to police statistics. The Maryland city's murder rate is also on the rise, 20 percent higher compared to the same period last year. Hoping...

    "The whole system failed and that is what has been happening for the last 30 years. And it is PC. People are just too, too afraid to, you know, just too, too afraid to speak the truth." — Mohan Singh, founder of the Sikh Awareness Society. MI5, Britain's domestic security agency, revealed that it has identified 23,000 jihadist extremists living in the country. Manchester bomber Salman Abedi used taxpayer-funded student loans and benefits to bankroll the terror plot, according to the Telegraph. Abedi is believed to have received thousands of pounds in state funding in the run-up to the attack...

    A 44-year-old mother might seem an unusual visitor on the drug corners of Baltimore, but Erricka Bridgeford has shown up for weeks to make her pitch for peace. Forget your grudges for one weekend, she urges the young men she finds. Bridgeford and other neighborhood leaders are drumming up support for a three-day ceasefire the first weekend of August to quell Baltimore’s violence. She admits that such peace is a tall order for a city that’s seen 188 killings this year. Organizers aim to stop the shooting from Friday, Aug. 4, through Sunday, Aug. 6, with a unified and blunt...

    A USA Today review of “Dunkirk” is under increased scrutiny from industry peers for warning viewers that it lacks women and minorities. Social media ridicule followed the publishing of writer Brian Truitt’s reaction to director Christopher Nolan’s latest film, a World War II tale about Allied soldiers attempting to survive while pinned down by German adversaries. The columnist gave the film a glowing review while saying its lack of diversity “may rub some the wrong way.”

The liberal utopian dream quickly turned into an Islamist nightmare. [snip] The newly unveiled 'liberal mosque' in Berlin was supposed to showcase a 'gentler' Islam. An Islam that could be reformed and modernized while it emerges as the dominant demographic force in Europe.

  • Fake News: Washington Post Claims Thomas Jefferson Held White House Iftar Dinner

    The establishment media became upset this weekend after President Donald Trump canceled the “White House Muslim Iftar Dinner tradition started by Thomas Jefferson.” But the media is wrong in every respect. Thomas Jefferson never held any Iftar dinner and only three out of 45 presidents ever hosted one, so there is no such “tradition” to cancel. Amy B. Wang of the Washington Post led the pack with this nonsense that Thomas Jefferson held the “first Iftar dinner” with a June 24 piece entitled, “Trump just ended a long tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House.” The often-used claim that Thomas Jefferson...

    The American Civil Liberties Union launched a vocal opposition this week against a Maine bill criminalizing female genital mutilation (FGM), Mainely Media reports. Republican Rep. Heather Sirocki is sponsoring the bill, saying that it would classify performing FGM as a Class B crime in the state, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. The bill would also punish the parent or guardian of the victim. However, the Maine ACLU staunchly opposes the protection.

    Bald men are being hunted down and killed in Mozambique over the belief that their heads contain gold, NPR reported. Five men have been killed, according to NPR, all in central Mozambique. "Last month, the murders of two bald people led to the arrest of two suspects," national police spokesman Inacio Dina said in a news conference in the country’s capital of Maputo. Their motives, he added, likely came from the superstition and cultural belief that bald men are rich. One of the victims was found “with his head cut off and his organs removed,” Miguel Caetano, a spokesman for...

The political establishment here has generally been reluctant to tackle the issue. But the nation is now asking how a multicultural society should police...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continues to maintain his deep belief that multiculturalism is the key to achieving security and stability in the West and to stopping terrorism. In a statement condemning Friday's attack in Egypt which targeted Coptic Christians, the third attack against Copts in recent months, Trudeau said, “As recent events show, violent extremists often target those most vulnerable. As members of the international community, we must continue to stand against those responsible for these acts of terrorism and counter hate by promoting the values of diversity, inclusion and peace.” […] Since being elected, Trudeau has taken the...

    New research from Gothenburg University on solidarity in Sweden backs up evidence from previous studies that ethnic diversity is bad for social cohesion. Surveying 9,800 randomly selected people, the university’s SOM Institute looked at the degree to which people in Sweden are able to feel a connection with people who differ from themselves. Researchers found that, outside of their own group, respondents are most inclined to feel an affinity with people whose education vastly differs from their own. “Most also feel a relatively large affinity with those who have very different political views, a different sexual orientation or whose financial...
