  • Have You Been ĎWokefishedí While Dating? Hereís How to Tell: If a dude describes himself on Hinge as a ďfeministĒ, pay close attention to how he actually treats women

    When I was about 17, I decided to go vegan (I was trying a lot of things at the time, including getting my nose pierced, which I considered a serious act of rebellion). Anyway, I mentioned my new veganism to the guy I was seeing at the time, and to my surprise, he seemed really annoyed. He responded with an uninterruptible lecture on the importance of supporting British farmers. I can still remember one of his appalled, patronising texts: ď_Oh god, youíre not gonna become one of those vegan feminists, are you??_Ē I was confused. He hadnít come across like...
  • THE NBA GETS LOW RATINGS ON ITS RETURN

    The NBA resumed its season Friday night with two televised games. How were the ratings? Ethan Strauss of the The Athletic reports: After a four-and-a-half month absence, tons of lead-up media coverage regarding the bubble, with little competition on the airwaves and a schedule specially constructed to deliver us the draw of Zion Williamson, Pelicans-Jazz garnered 2.1 million viewers. For context, thatís roughly 400,000 fewer viewers than the average audience of a TNT game in the 2011-12 lockout season. Notably, the NBAís official Friday viewership news release did not mention the seasonís opening game at all. The more feted Lakers-Clippers...

    Pull down your mask, liberate your consciousness: Itís time to meet Facts Man. Or examine him, really. You have met Facts Man before if you have spent any time online in the past half decade or so. Heís inescapable. He podcasts. He makes YouTube videos. He traffics in Medium posts. He burns up Facebook. And he lovesóloves!óTwitter. What does he serve up there? Truth. Facts. The overlooked and the undercovered. The unvarnished and obvious conclusions that the media do not want you to believe. The conclusions that the social-justice warriors and sheeple professors will not let you reach. The conclusions...

    My passion for professional baseball began when I was ten. In 1954, my parents signed me up for a Little League team at the U.S. Air Force base in Wiesbaden, West Germany. The six teams in the league were named after major league teams back in America. I ended up on the team named after the Brooklyn Dodgers. With my interest in big league baseball piqued, I made a Dodgers scrapbook of articles cut from the U.S. military newspaper, The Stars and Stripes. The first clipping in my scrapbook was the line score of Game 7 of the 1955 World...

    How does it end for organizations that buy in to critical race theory and implement its prescribed remedies? Same question as to society in general. The answer to both, I believe, is not well. In addition to loss of revenue, customers, viewers, students, sponsors, donors, patrons, fans, and the like, there will be higher litigation, insurance, security, taxes, and compliance costs. It is self-destructive. Ultimately, I believe, the "woke" ó well intentioned or not ó will devour their hosts before turning on one another and eating themselves, if you will. Real-life examples of this outcome can be found already. Witness...

    As part of the NFL's ongoing commitment to social justice programs, the messages "It Takes All of Us" and "End Racism" will be stenciled on all end zone borders for home openers, the league office informed clubs in a memo Monday obtained by ESPN. The two messages of inclusion, which will be stenciled on opposite end zones during kickoff week, are key elements of the league's broader, multifaceted rollout intended to highlight its efforts to support diversity and inclusion while the new season begins. The end zone messages demonstrate "how football and the NFL brings people together to work as...

    If there is one non-conservative writer who you should read right now, it's Matt Taibbi. The Rolling Stone editor has been a surgeon in dissecting the Left's uncontrollable descent into insanity. Even if you disagree with most of his work, which I'm sure you will, his analysis of the Left's "woke" awakening is spot on and devastating. Taibbi torched these clowns for their historically illiterate and unhinged tantrum over Independence Day. Now, he's going off on the institutional Left's latest craze: fawning over Robin DiAngelo's "White Fragility," a cacophony of intersectionality nonsense that appears to have driven Taibbi crazy just...

    This is the story of how Social Justice Activists turned the [Canadian] Law Society into the thought police. ... Itís a story about a handful of ordinary lawyers and paralegals, mostly sole or small firm practitioners, who risked careers, reputations, friendships and more to stand up against the progressive juggernaut, because they believed that their professional regulator had no right to tell its members what they are required to think and believe in order to practice law. All by itself, itís a fascinating tale (as much as one can be fascinated by lawyers). But what I really want to share...

    Editor's Note: The following piece is an excerpt from Scott's upcoming book Why Social Justice Is Not Biblical Justice: An Urgent Appeal to Fellow Christians in a Time of Social Crisis. The horrific murder of George Floyd has renewed a sincere cry from many evangelical leaders to speak out against racism in America.Racism is a great and ever-present evil. As followers of Jesus, we must uphold the truth that all people, regardless of skin-color, ethnicity, sex, or socio-economic status, are made in God’s image, with inherent worth and dignity. Nearly all evangelical Christians agree on this point. Here is where...

    Patrick Harrington is sitting on a rock high on a hilltop...his head in his hands. The owner of Kindness Yoga, and one of the most well-known yogis in Denver, is struggling to piece together the words to explain what happened ó in the span of a week ó to his once-stellar reputation and his 19-year-old business. He is stunned, though remorseful. He is eager to speak up, yet on edge for fear of saying anything that could make all of this any worse. Harrington, a straight, white guy who expanded Kindness to nine studios and 160 employees across metro Denver,...

    Another day, another cancellation in the YA literature world. This time, author Alexandra Duncan has ďvoluntarilyĒ withdrawn her book, Ember Days, because she failed to ďstay in her laneĒ, basically. In other words, a white woman wrote about a culture that isnít hers. The nerve of this woman to bully Alexandra Duncan, a white woman, into cancelling her original novel while sheís got a butchered Black Power version of Little Women in the works! The utter hypocrisy!

    Nestlť is rebranding its Red Skins and Chicos sweets, saying that their controversial names ó which feature offensive racial overtones ó are "out of step" with the company's values. The products, which are sold in Australia, have prompted complaints for several years. Allen's, the Nestlť (NSRGF) brand which produces the sweets, said in a statement posted to Facebook on Tuesday that the decision to rename the products was made to avoid marginalizing its friends, neighbors and colleagues. Redskin is a slur used to describe Native Americans, while chico can be a stereotypical term for Latin Americans.

    The Navy SEALs are being disbanded and replaced with a new branch of the military: The United States Social Workers. The social workers will be dropped into terrorist hideouts to talk with militants about their feelings and defuse the situation. The move was made as a push against police work and firearms continues across the nation. As people continue to call on police departments to be defunded, the next logical target was the Navy SEALs. "I can tell that you're angry at America -- do you want to talk about that?" one social worker asked after she was dropped off...

    On Thursday, June 4, 2020, a 22-year-old activist named Kennedy Mitchum reached out to the publishers of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary to express her frustration with their definition of the word "racist:" A belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. Mitchum felt this was inadequate to fully cover the scope of systemic issues and unconscious biases that affect race relations in America. Growing up in Florissant, Missouri ó just a few miles away from Ferguson ó she'd grown tired of trying to explain to...
