    Statues of Lincoln, Catholic saints, and Confederate generals have been in the political debate as of late. There are even a few commentators who want to tear down monuments to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. It’s out of control, but then again—that’s the progressive Left. Now, former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says it’s a matter of national security. He made the remarks to ABC News’ Martha Raddatz on This Week Sunday. Our friends at the Washington Free Beacon clipped the exchangeJeh Johnson: Removing Confederate statues a matter of 'homeland security' "What alarms so many of us from a...

    Over the past few days, Confederate generals have been placed in the crosshairs of the progressive Left. Statues to these Americans who fought on the losing side of our civil war, which bothered no one—and probably still don’t—are being targeted for demolition. Yet, why stop there? Abraham Lincoln, who actually kept the country together and abolished slavery through a constitutional amendment, has been vandalized in Chicago. Now, even statues to Thomas Jefferson and George Washington have to come down because they were slave owners. Forget that they helped found this great country. Forget that Washington ad Jefferson were our first...
  • Liberal condescension at college - how can I go on?

    I work for a college which is very liberal these days, in your face banners and condescending "workshops" open to all frequently, with "diversity credit" (reference below). It's sickening enough. Including having Moochelle Uhbama here the other year. But since Trump was elected, now we get hand-wringing e-mails about "hatred" and that we need to beware of evil right-wing people who cause violence (LOL). Got another one today.

    Nicholas Fuentes, an 18-year-old student who attended the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., this past weekend, said that he's received death threats for months over his conservative viewpoints -- enough for him to decide it's time to leave Boston University. Fuentes said he made the decision to abandon his Political Science degree a month ago after being constantly threatened over his conservative views. He said no longer felt safe on campus, and will not return for the fall semester.

    Committee on Art in Public Spaces deems image not appropriate Officials at Yale University recently censored a stone work of art on campus depicting an armed Native American and Puritan side by side, which has been described as a hostile image by the Ivy League institutions alumni magazine. The stone carving was edited to cover up the Puritans musket, while the Native Americans bow was left as is, reports Yale Alumni Magazine. The decision to censor the carving was made by both head librarian Susan Gibbons and Yales Committee on Art in Public Spaces, the latter of which advises President...

    As the left mobilizes mobs to tear down confederate statues (and peace monuments) from city-to-city, it was only a matter of time before they would be going after our Founding Fathers. On CNN Thursday morning, liberal analyst Angela Rye argued that our nations first president was as detestable as Robert E. Lee because he was a slave owner. To me, I don't care if it's a George Washington statue or Thomas Jefferson, they all need to come down, she said before ranting about Americas very violent past. In a panel discussion with the Daily Beasts John Avlon, journalist Farai Chideya...

I call on @macklemore to get online and denounce his own haircut. To which Macklemore quickly replied, Got rid of it over a year ago.

    Many of our countrys most cherished institutions of higher learning are shadows of what they once were. And if youre a college graduate, that probably includes your alma mater. A survey by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA found that a staggering 60 percent of university professors identified as liberal or far-left in 2014 up from 42 percent in 1990. But interviews conducted in 17 separate Gallup polls in 2016 that found that 70 percent of Americans consider themselves either conservative (36 percent) or moderate (34 percent). In colleges across the country, far-left professors now dominate disciplines like...

    Today's counter-revolution against liberty is being fought on a number of fronts in American society. One is on college and university campuses across the country, where the ideology of "political correctness" is strangling freedom of speech and smothering intellectual controversy and debate. Critical to this campaign is the capture of language. It is through our language that we think about ourselves, our relationships to others, and the social order surrounding us. Words do not merely delineate objects, individuals, events or actions. Words also create mental imageries, emotions, attitudes, and beliefs that color how people see themselves and the world around...

    The Boy Scouts of America on Thursday apologized for Presidents Trumps politically charged speech to kids at the youth organizations gathering this week. I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree. That was never our intent, Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh wrote on Scoutingwire. The invitation for the sitting U.S. President to visit the National Jamboree is a long-standing tradition that has been extended to the leader of our nation that has had a Jamboree during his term since 1937. It is...

    Whats everybodys big problem with small talk? There are memes about hating small talk, articles about dodging potential landmines in casual conversation and a move to end the practice altogether. With a new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm on the horizon, the biggest hater of small talk, Larry David, is inspiring pieces on how to avoid it altogether. David has said on the show that he tries to elevate small talk to medium talk and hes really not a fan of the stop and chat with an acquaintance. Hes not alone. This month Cosmopolitan UK described people who would rather...

    Dear UNC President Spellings:For years, my opposition to UNC diversity initiatives has been a source of controversy across our seventeen-campus system. Many have assumed that my opposition has been a function of personal prejudice or insensitivity to the needs of various disenfranchised groups. In reality, it is a function of my belief that people should be judged according to individual character traits, not group stereotypes. However, despite years of opposition to UNCs victim centered diversity movement, it appears that my side has lost. Accordingly, I write to you today with an offer to join the war against white privilege and...

    As someone who fights on the side of free speech, Im the first to tell ya, we do have a tendency to strawman political correctness. You may have heard things like them snowflakes just dont 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 arent the actual arguments they make. So let me arm you with the intellectual tools you need to successfully contribute to the discussion! And if youre PC, listen with an open mind- maybe I can change it. One argument they...

    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...

    When the College Republicans chapter at Marylands Hood College decided to put up a temporary display honoring prominent conservatives, the group wanted to promote the free exchange of ideas. We just wanted to provoke thoughtful discussion, said club president Christopher Gardner. We have done that. In reality, the young Republicans accomplished even more by exposing how close-minded many of their fellow students have become.

    A leading Church of England vicar yesterday condemned the words of one of the countrys 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.

    The American military under Obama received less focus about preparing to fight wars than as a laboratory for social engineering. The military was ordered to integrate Homosexuals and transgenders into the ranks. The armed forces had to place its war fighting training on hold in order to adopt the politically correct, liberal agenda of the far left. As a result, the military has begun to lose its fighting spirit and forgotten its heritage and history. The Obamas Regimes inclusive approach has managed to minimize the expression of religion in the ranks. Officers and enlisted alike have been disciplined for displaying...
