  • THE LEFT’S CAMPAIGN TO DISTORT HISTORY AND CONDEMN WHITE PEOPLE

    David Horowitz’s Twitter feed was besieged after he pointed out the obvious. Left-wingers have spent the last few days attacking David Horowitz for challenging the Equal Justice Initiative and its efforts to foment anti-white racial hatred by presenting the odious practice of lynching as an exclusively white instrument of racial oppression and terror used against blacks. But history is rarely as clear-cut as radical leftist ideologues pretend.  Lynchings were carried out in an atmosphere of mass hysteria where enraged individuals acted to eliminate the perceived risk that a guilty person might go unpunished. If the black lynching victim was alleged...

  • 'Simpsons' Criticized for Response to Apu Controversy

    Fox's The Simpsons is under fire for the way in which the show responded to controversy around one of its most recognizable and oldest characters, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. The outcry over the stereotypical portrayal of Springfield’s Kwik-E-Mart owner, voiced by Hank Azaria, was addressed Sunday night in the episode “No Good Read Goes Unpunished" when Marge Simpson reads a book to daughter Lisa that has been changed from its original version to something not so controversial. “Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive is now politically incorrect. What can you do?,” says Lisa. The show then panned to...

    A Canadian high school switched to “Africentric Math” to attract black students to go into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math(STEM) fields, according to Canadian Broadcasting’s(CBC) Wednesday report. Nova Scotia’s Auburn Drive High School math teachers are skipping their previous eurocentric approach to teaching mathematics so black students will gain more interest in the subject, the CBC reported. Teachers are adopting an Afrocentric lens to teach mathematics, based on incorporating African history and culture to make math classes resonate with their students. Auburn High School is working with the Imphop’s Legacy Academy, a program encouraging black students to get interested in...
  • According to ‘Krypton’ There’s A Chance Superman May Have African-American Bloodlines

    The history of Superman is well documented throughout time in either comics, TV shows or movies. However, the history of his bloodlines has been pushed to the side just a bit, that is until the recent premiere of Krypton. In the new show on SYFY, it chronicles the life of Superman’s grandfather and great grandfather’s studies while on the planet of Krypton before Kal-El was born. While it was interesting to see the beginning of his story, what stood out the most is what may have slipped the eyes of many. While critics have bashed the pilot, there are some,...

    The diversity imperative demands dissimulation and evasion. The academic-achievement gap, the behavioral differences that produce socioeconomic disparities, and the ubiquity of racial preferences must all be suppressed in public discourse, since they undercut the narrative that white racism is the driving force in American society. This dissimulation was on display last week at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, when Dean Ted Ruger announced that law professor Amy Wax would no longer teach mandatory first-year law courses at the school. In a memo announcing his decision, Ruger accused Wax of “conscious indifference” to truth. It is Ruger, however, who has...

    Walt Disney World has finally reopened its popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction — minus the controversial “Bride Auction” sequence. The scene, which appeared in the “Pirates” rides at Disney World, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris, had originally depicted a group of women bound to an auction block, with a banner reading “Auction: Take a wench for a bride” hanging above their heads. A group of nearby pirates could also be heard requesting the redheaded “wench,” who was the most prominently displayed woman on the block. As of the ride’s reopening on March 19, however, the whole scene has been...

    omedian Owen Benjamin is a rising star in the battle for free speech and common sense. Using comedy as a weapon against left wing thought control, Benjamin has faced major criticism in the entertainment industry. In fact, SJWs in Hollywood have called for him to be blackballed because he dared to say that injecting hormones into 3 year old children to “transition” them into another gender is wrong. “The Big Bear,” as his online fans “The Unbearables” call Benjamin, is known for immediately adding jokes about current events into his stand up sets. So it’s no surprise that last weekend...

    National Geographic acknowledged on Monday that it covered the world through a racist lens for generations, with its magazine portrayals of bare-breasted women and naive brown-skinned tribesmen as savage, unsophisticated and unintelligent. "We had to own our story to move beyond it," editor-in-chief Susan Goldberg told The Associated Press in an interview about the yellow-bordered magazine's April issue, which is devoted to race.

    February 1. Foreign Office officials invited 1,800 female staff members to wear Islamic headscarves to mark World Hijab Day. The department gave away taxpayer-funded headscarves, claiming they symbolized "liberation, respect and security." Critics, citing the compulsory veiling of women in Islamic countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, said the garment is a symbol of male oppression. Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said, "I'd like to know whose bright idea this was. It is ridiculous, a complete waste of taxpayers' money and not the business of a government department. I can't see the Foreign Office promoting Christianity or the handing out...

    Before the blood had dried at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the left started its familiar blame game. . . snip Now, some three weeks later, it’s quite clear that the blame for the massacre in Parkland lay not primarily with the AR-15 or those that advocate for its existence, but rather with the left’s dangerous obsession with political correctness. . . snip As David B. Kopel points out at Reason, Parkland wasn’t the first time the left’s preference for political correctness over the enforcement of existing safeguards has enabled mass shooters; in fact, the event that...

    US Defense Watch ^ | February 20, 2018 | Ray Starmann
    General James “Mad Dog” Mattis, was apparently the second coming of Patton, a real world walking, talking version of Frederick the Great’s maxim, “L’Audace, L’Audace, Toujours L’Audace”, a well-read grunt who spit napalm and ingested cut glass, a Marine who made Dan Daly and Chesty Puller look like campus snowflakes. During more than 30 years on active duty as a gyrene, the Mad Dog said many classic statements, but these were some of his favorites: ‘It’s quite fun to shoot them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people.’ In 2005, he offered this...

    A 2015 Pew survey reported that the total number of Catholics in the United States dropped by 3 million since 2007, now comprising about 20 percent - or one-fifth - of the total population. Catholicism is losing more members than it gains at a higher rate than any other denomination – a recent development which the radical progressives at Salon celebrate. Why is this an issue that should worry Americans and the Western world at large? One key reason is that the fastest-growing religion in the country and around the world is Islam – something Salon radicals also no...

    The defense of free speech has always been a bedrock bipartisan principle. So it’s unusual to hear a veteran liberal politician excuse campus outrage squads that shout down dissent. But that’s exactly what former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee head Howard Dean did in a recent appearance.. Dean’s take on this was that there are “consequences to free speech.” He caricatured Erika Christakis’s thoughtful, sensitive letter as an ugly screed mocking “snowflake” students and defending racist costumes. He also described the protesters as well-behaved, despite their screaming and bullying. ... Dean is hardly alone...progressives on and off campus are...
  • Trudeau Corrects Questioner: ‘Peoplekind’ Is ‘More Inclusive’ Than ‘Mankind’

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave his fellow countrymen a lesson on gender inclusivity in language at a public town hall Friday. Trudeau took a question about religious nonprofits from a woman affiliated with the World Mission Society Church of God. Canadian regulations place restrictions on volunteering with religious organizations, and the woman asked whether the government could loosen those regulations, as she discussed her church’s theology of God’s maternal love. "So, that’s why we came here today to ask you, to also look into the policies that religious charitable organizations have in our legislation so that it can also...

    Major League Baseball says the Cleveland Indians will stop using the Chief Wahoo logo on their uniforms starting in the 2019 season. The league says the logo, which features a smiling Native American, is not appropriate for field use. It has had discussions with the Indians in hopes that the franchise move away from the logo, which had been used in some capacity for the franchise since the 1947 season and was still prevalent on the team's baseball caps and on its uniforms. "Major League Baseball is committed to building a culture of diversity and inclusion throughout the game,” MLB...

    Commenting on Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating President Trump for alleged "collusion" with Russia, Judicial Watch said that, as FBI director under President Obama, Mueller purged the Bureau of all anti-terrorism training material that was deemed "offensive" to Muslims. This was done, said Judicial Watch, "after secret meetings between Islamic organizations and the FBI chief." Judicial Watch obtained the documents on Mueller and the Muslim groups after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the FBI in July 2012. Mueller had met with the Muslims groups on Feb. 8, 2012, after which the curricula purge took...
