  • Much Ado About Nothing New Under The Sun (Your Favorite Quote Requested)

    Although it can’t be denied that President Trump has upset the status-quo apple cart ... I’m hard-pressed to think of the multitude of good things that happened that didn’t meet the same objections similar. The point is that much of this is what has always been(a different kind of tweetness) in our Free Republic, for good reason. Before the constraints of political correctness changed the landscape to where hyper-outrage drama queens became our king. The subtle rulers of indignation. One Example: “When they call the roll in the Senate, the Senators do not know whether to answer 'Present' or 'Not...

    Disney will remove the infamous “bride auction” scene from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland next year, the company announced on Thursday. During the planned ride refurbishment, Disney will alter the roles of the auctioneer, the redhead woman and other characters participating in the “Auction: Take a Wench for a Bride” scene. In the current scene, the redhead character is the prize of the auction. According to Disney, the redhead is holding a rifle and will be a “plundering pirate” in the new scene. In the official announcement, Disney wrote: “…the redhead is...

    The famous auctioneer scene that takes place on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland and Disney World is set to be overhauled, according to a press release from the Disney Parks blog. As of 2017, the attraction — which opened in 1967 in Disneyland and 1973 in the Magic Kingdom of Disney World — will no longer feature the famous auctioneer scene, in which a red-headed “wench” is auctioned off to a crowd of raucous and dirty pirates who wish to make her their bride. An artist’s rendering of the new scenes reveals that the pirates will now...

    'Restore strength of our military and put an end to political correctness in the Pentagon'! A leading military readiness expert is urging President Trump and Secretary of Defense James Mattis to revoke former President Obama’s directives on transgenders serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. The Center for Military Readiness, or CMR, has released a new report titled “The President, Defense Department and Military Services Should Revoke Problematic Transgender Policy Directives and Instructions.” It analyzes 15 different Obama directives and training documents that promote retention and transgender recruiting. “The Trump administration has a mandate to restore the strength of our military...

    A scene that depicts women on the auction block apparently has no place in a Disneyland ride, even if the attraction is meant to depict the violence, debauchery and misogyny of a pirate’s life.

    As someone who fights on the side of free speech, I’m the first to tell ya, we do have a tendency to strawman political correctness. You may have heard things like “them snowflakes just don’t like being ‘fended” or “they want to suppress the truth!” and though I agree in PC cultures worst form all these things are true, those aren’t the actual arguments they make. So let me arm you with the intellectual tools you need to successfully contribute to the discussion! And if you’re PC, listen with an open mind- maybe I can change it. One argument they...

    Where does one begin? We, as a world, continue to reap the consequences of our defiance and ignorance of the order that God established in the natural and spiritual world, substituting the arrogant and prideful beliefs of man in place of the divine order that the Creator of everything ordained. We are committing societal suicide by allowing "gender confusion" to reign as the gold standard; feelings, not logic, rule the decisions. We are committing national suicide by allowing political correctness to take priority over common sense. We treat any who criticizes Islam as racist, despite the fact that it is...

    Workers have begun to dismantle the statue of a Greek goddess from Bangladesh's Supreme Court complex, after an outcry from Islamists. The sculpture of Themis - the goddess of justice - wearing a sari was less than six months old, but Islamist groups demanded its removal by Friday. They claimed it hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims and it prompted mass protests in the capital, Dhaka. PM Sheikh Hasina agreed to its removal, but secular groups opposed it.

    Hollywood screen legend Clint Eastwood sounded off on what he described as the scourge of political correctness in an impassioned speech this weekend at the Cannes Film Festival. While addressing a packed audience Sunday, the Oscar-winner said his seminal crime drama Dirty Harry could not have been made in today’s politically correct climate. “A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect,’ Eastwood said of the 1971 film he starred in. “‘That was at the beginning of the era that we’re in now, where everybody thinks everyone’s politically correct.” “We’re killing ourselves by doing that,” the 86-year-old star warned, declaring...
  • Star Trek: Discovery trailer (looks like PC run amok)

    New look at the new Trek incarnation. Overall it looks like a PC mess. White men are almost an after-thought. An overtly gay man on the bridge. Set a decade before TOS. Of course, CGI is many iterations ahead of what has come before and it looks gorgeous. Said to be broadcast worldwide on pay-for-TV CBS offshoot. May explain why the characters are World Government types. Show was due January 2017. Then summer, 2017. Now -- who knows? The original show runner quit and show has been turned-over to others. Casting reportedly still incomplete. Like other Trek fans I am...

    The War against the Confederacy is a War against America. The War against the Confederacy is a war on American history. The War against the Confederacy is a war against all of us and a war on America’s institutions. The War against the Confederacy is being waged by militant leftists, big government lackeys, aggrieved snowflakes and the hate America crowd. Since a psychotic young man, who owned a Confederate flag, killed nine parishioners at a black church in South Carolina in June of 2015, the radical left, big government crowd in this country is doing something they’ve wanted to do...

    The mood on migration in Sweden appears to have shifted dramatically this year, with a majority of people now saying they want the Nordic nation to take in fewer asylum seekers. The most recent survey, conducted in autumn and winter, found that 52 per cent of respondents said Sweden should slow the migrant flow, with only 26 per cent opposed to the idea. By contrast, Swedes asked the same question in 2015 were almost evenly split on the issue — 40 per cent said they felt the country should be receiving fewer asylum seekers, whilst 37 per cent wanted to...

He was wearing a bulletproof vest and is expected to be OK, GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said. Deputies first responded to a reported armed robbery in progress at the Atlanta Dragway, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. The suspect stole a car and drove toward the outlet mall.

    The New York Times published an op-ed Monday by New York University comparative literature professor Ulrich Baer, who argued that those young protesters derided as campus "snowflakes" who violently oppose speakers who offend leftist sensibilities are actually getting it right about free speech. Indeed, Baer concludes, "We should thank the student protestors, the activists in Black Lives Matter and other 'overly sensitive' souls for keeping watch over the soul of our republic." No we shouldn't. We must be vigilant against those totalitarian students, activists, and snowflakes in defense of our republic's soul.

    A gunman opens fire in Paris,  killing one police officer and wounding two. Islamic  State quickly claims responsibility, naming the gunman as “a soldier of the caliphate.” The savage attack is the latest of many in Paris, understandably sparking widespread fears of terrorism. But some Parisians desperately seek convenient explanations that will let them avoid the necessary conflict. “Is it because we’ve joined forces and joined a coalition in Iraq and Syria against Islamic State?” one businessman asked on Paris television. Ah, a perfectly French reaction. If only the country had been nicer to Islamic State, it wouldn’t have this problem. Right,...

    A leading Church of England vicar yesterday condemned the words of one of the country’s best-loved hymns as obscene, offensive and unfit to be sung by Christians. The Reverend Gordon Giles, one of the Anglicans’ leading authorities on hymns, declared that I Vow to Thee My Country should be rewritten if it is to be sung by modern congregations. His verdict was delivered in advance of the remembrance weekend when the hymn, which is especially valued by military families, will feature in thousands of services across the country and the Commonwealth.
