  • Obama's Mosque Speech Was A Dangerous Fantasy

    Many of the president's ideas about 'tolerance' are antithetical to the American experience, not something to celebrate.For eight years now, the president has reprimanded the American people for their attitudes about Islam. And Barack Obama's big speech to the Islamic Society of Baltimore -- granted, filled with many harmless platitudes -- was no different, leaving little room for any honest dialogue about ideology or faith. Many of the president's ideas about "tolerance," in fact, are antithetical to the American experience, not something to celebrate. Acceptance of outsiders is an American virtue, yes. Do we have to embrace all ideas, as...

    The appeal of Mr. Trump, in its face, is clear. He rips away the scourge of political correctness, a virus that is destroying the country from within. We’re all rightly concerned about terrorism, but that’s a cancer that will only finish off this nation. The tipping point for me was last week’s absurd drama surrounding new attacks by the Trump gang on Fox News’ Megyn Kelly. She’s “unfair” we’re told, and shouldn’t moderate the debate. This stemmed from the first debate when Ms. Kelly asked Mr. Trump to explain his attitude toward women many consider misogynistic. Yes, you can be...

    Valentine's Day is the first that will pass without notice at Bruce Vento Elementary. Celebrations of Valentine’s Day and the other “dominant holidays” are ending at one St. Paul elementary school, according to a letter from the principal addressed to families. Principal Scott Masini of Bruce Vento Elementary School, whose student body is overwhelmingly nonwhite, explained in the letter that “my personal feeling is we need to find a way to honor and engage in holidays that are inclusive of our student population.” With Valentine’s Day a little more than two weeks away, Masini noted, “I have come to the...

In November, the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa informed yoga instructor Jennifer Scharf that her class catering to students with disabilities would be canceled because of the "cultural issues and implications" involved with a white woman teaching a yoga class.

    Imagine that in some future presidential election, two Mexican-American candidates are vying for the Dem nomination. The Dem front-runner announces he won't participate in the next debate. And a conservative pundit sneeringly says "who's going to watch a debate between the two Mexican guys?" Now imagine all hell descending on that hapless conservative for his breach of political correctness. Will anything similar befall Chris Matthews? Of course not. But on Hardball this evening, as news was breaking that Donald Trump won't participate in Thursday's debate in protest over Megyn Kelly's presence on the panel, Matthews said "who's going to watch...

    Do your Allen Iverson imitation, but instead of "practice," try saying "alleged" in your most disbelieving voice. . . On today's Good Morning America, the normally politically-correct Dan Harris took surprising issue with Ron Claiborne's insistence on calling a caught-on-tape convenience store shooter an "alleged" robber. The show rolled the security video several times, showing the "alleged" robber repeatedly shooting right at the woman at the register. Said an incredulous Harris "I like how you call him an 'alleged' robber. I think we can say, given the video, he did it." Responded Claiborne: "I'm not going there, Dan. Innocent till...

    Washington (CNN)—The commissioning of the USS Jackson, a littoral combat ship, has angered activists who don't want to see President Andrew Jackson honored. The new ship, also designated LCS 6, was commissioned in Mississippi on Saturday and honors Jackson, Mississippi, which the Navy noted in a news release is named for former President Andrew Jackson. The ship is the Navy's third to bear the seventh president's name. The designation comes amid a nationwide review of Jackson's legacy; activists who have fought having his name celebrated were dismayed to learn of the name the Navy had chosen.

    I completely get the fury over political correctness. I completely understand that the aristocratic political, media, and academic establishment have been lying to us about Islam and the Muslim world for more than fourteen years. As I explain at length on the home page, it's simply not the case that Islam is a peaceful, tolerant faith plagued by a tiny few extremists. Rather, Islam has massive problem with hate and bigotry - with hundreds of millions of Muslims supporting the worst kinds of religious intolerance and tens of millions more outright terrorist sympathizers. In the refugee controversy, I've repeated over...

    A guide to "inclusive" Christmas decorations created by Cornell University warns that any decorations that remotely evoke religion, which includes stars and mistletoe, are incompatible with the school's commitment to diversity. The guidelines are buried inside a Cornell publication concerning fire safety guidelines for holiday decorations, and were first noticed by the website Campus Reform. The first half of the document concerns certain banned fire hazards, such as candles and metallic Christmas trees. The second half of the document, though, veers off into a discussion of how to make the Christmas season more "inclusive." "University members are reminded to be...

    "Combat Effectiveness" Being Degraded by Obama's Military Policies By evaluating an overwhelming amount of evidence that has been building for 6 ½ years, the obvious conclusion personnel with extensive military experience will come to, is that Obama’s military policies have been degrading the finest US military fighting force in history. Over the last 6 ½ years, the US Armed Forces has been hollowed out by Obama, his Social Experiment On Diversity has severely fractured unit cohesiveness, his “Politically Correct Policies” have negatively affected unit morale, and the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US military is being degraded.

    The FBI announced Friday that the San Bernardino massacre this week is an act of terrorism. The California attack is now the single deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil or on U.S. citizens -- since September 11, 2001. Yet, throughout the week, the president stubbornly refused to acknowledge even the existence violent Islamic extremism. His willful blindness to the threat has left Americans more anxious about their security, and jihadists more confident about their prospects. The President may dismiss this and say we're not at war with Islam, but radical Islam is in a global war with us. And it's...

    It's a predictable tradition for columnists to offer things for which we ought to be thankful on Thanksgiving.

But this year it seems that a reminder is necessary, particularly in light of recent events on college campuses. It is bad enough that so much of the behavior at college -- substance abuse, the "hookup culture," the obsession with pornography -- threatens students' emotional and physical health as they move into adulthood.

The school agreed to all except the first, which required the firing of its president. Similar protests took place concurrently at other colleges nationwide. Occidental's five-day takeover was organized by Oxy United for Black Liberation, led by members of Oxy's Black Student Alliance (BSA) and Coalition at Oxy for Diversity and Equity (CODE).

This same group of young people has granted broad awareness to the culture of "microaggression" -- unintended slights taken as grave insults by their victims; they've also called for "trigger warnings," alerts that certain communications may dredge up unpleasant past memories or ideas.

Free speech is in play. But there is a stark difference between perceived bias and real discrimination. Factoring in the "urgency" created by 24-hour news coverage, the recent spate of student protests and, in a couple of cases, the ouster of two university presidents and a chancellor, belies the fact that there is an all-too-real civil rights threat on the rise on college campuses.

    Im offended. Offended by people who try not to give offence. You see, the offence industry is upon us like a plague, and it hurts everything and everyone it touches. In our PC days, it seems that everyone is whining about being offended. No matter how hard you try, folks will complain that you have offended them about something. And in the West we are aiding and abetting this madness by enacting ridiculous laws about vilification and so on, which basically makes it a crime to offend somebody. Homosexual activists and Islamic groups are among the major bodies pushing for...

    Dear Raymond: Thanks for your kind letter. I appreciate your willingness to reach out to me for advice concerning recent developments in your church home. Your question to me was pretty direct. Given your pastor's recent declaration that he intends to grow the church membership by 10,000 in five years, how should you express your concerns that numbers have now replaced the Gospel as the focal point of your church's mission? My answer will also be direct. In my view, you should not bother voicing your concerns to your pastor. You should leave your church immediately. That may sound extreme...

    If you’re Social Justice Warrior, you’re a liar. You actively spread absurd falsehoods about the nature of men, women, sex, and culture that can’t withstand even the slightest scrutiny. You change history and conceal facts to fit preferred narratives, even when it costs human lives. You claim the best of intentions yet achieve the worst of outcomes. And through it all, you hate the very nation and political system that have granted you the liberties you so grotesquely abuse...SNIP...If you disagree — if you think that political correctness is gaining momentum — then consider a few facts. First, the top...

    Move over, Melissa Harris-Perry it is getting crowded on the lunatic PC bench. Joining hard worker (racist!) on the PC banned word list is too (sexist!). Thats right: an adjective and adverb positing that something is more excessive in some quality than desirable is now verboten, as far as the Huffington Post is concerned. The editors there gave considerable space to Cameron Schaeffer, who identifies herself as a freshman at the University of Vermont, where her head has obviously been filled with victimology nonsense.Ms. Schaeffer describes contemplating her hair in the mirror. From her HuffPo headshot, it is apparent...

    God forbid it should be said that Bernie Sanders throws a "Christmas" party! Sanders wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, was interviewed on today's With All Due Respect. When Mark Halperin asked the affable Mrs. Sanders to share a side of her husband that people might not know, she twice mentioned that Bernie organizes an annual "Christmas" party. And twice she promptly corrected herself, calling it a "holiday" party. View the video here.

    Is there such a thing as being too politically correct in San Francisco? Yes -- but a public official has to overreach drastically to hit that mark. Everett Middle School principal Lena Van Haren did just that when she chose to withhold the results of her school's Oct. 9 student council election because students had elected too many white kids. "It's not OK for a school that is really, really diverse to have the student representatives majority white," Van Haren told the San Francisco Chronicle's Jill Tucker as her decision made national news. On Monday, Van Haren finally released the...

    A former intelligence analyst, Stella Morabito, who grew up in a left-wing family and calls herself a realist, is speaking out about mass manipulation, political correctness and the transgender agenda. Her writings at The Federalist got the attention of Rush Limbaugh back in June when he seemed fascinated by her piece on mass delusion. A subsequent related piece is here. In this exclusive video interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, she details how the left uses mass manipulation techniques to confuse Americans and grab power. She condemns conservatives for not even realizing the behavior modification techniques being employed in...

    Eyman said her suspension was in her first year of middle school, my first year of attempting middle school in America. I knew English, but the culture was different, the people were different. I got suspended from school for three days from this stupid same district, from this girl saying I wanted to blow up the school, something I had nothing to do with.
