  • Classical Liberalism: A Guide on Its Definition and How It Came to Be

    What is classical liberalism? And what does it mean to be a classically liberal? Classical liberalism refers to the philosophy of individual liberty, property rights, and rule of law that dominated the West from the late 1700s until the mid-1900s. As history shows, however, words can take new meanings over time. The word liberalism has been in the English lexicon for centuries, but its definition has changed over the course of the 20th century. In fact, the changes have been so significant that political scientists have to qualify liberalism prior to the twentieth century as classical liberalism. By contrast, they...
  • ‘Where’s Your God Now?’: Mob Of Abortion Activists Surround Pro-Life Christian At SCOTUS Protest

    Following the leak out of the Supreme Court, which showed the likelihood of Roe v. Wade being overturned, pro-abortion activists gathered at the capitol to protest en masse and terrorize all opposing voices. Daily Wire reporter Mary Margaret Olohan documented the protest on Wednesday and said that the “viciousness” among the crowd “was palpable.” Olohan described a small number of counter-protesters who were pro-life experiencing ‘mob and pitchfork’ like berating as pro-abortion activists screamed, cursed, and pressed a siren blaring megaphone to their ears. Most of the pro-life voices outside the supreme court building, she recounted, were forced to escape...
  • Chicago police commander approved murder charges in hammer attack because prosecutors refused to do it, records show

    Prosecutors refused to approve murder charges against a man who allegedly admitted to killing the victim with a hammer this weekend, according to law enforcement sources and court records. So, a Chicago police detective commander stepped in to override the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office decision, the records show. Investigators had seemingly overwhelming evidence against Gregory Stamps. He allegedly admitted to killing the victim, dragging the dying naked man down three flights of stairs, dumping him in an alley, and tossing the man’s clothes into a dumpster. When cops crossed paths with Stamps minutes after the murder, he allegedly had...

    Some lunatic MSNBC doctor wants everyone to carry around masks and badger others to wear them. This Dr. Patel also appears to advise mask bullies to use lies about elderly mothers and cancerous children as emotional blackmail. This is the latest “crazy” response (the doctor’s word, not mine) to a federal judge in Florida finally putting an end to the anti-science mask mandate demanded by the fascist, unelected bureaucrats at the CDC.

    America, and by extension the rest of the West, are afflicted with a sickening pathology that is rotting away the strength and power of our nations. Like a cancer that eats away at the strength of a healthy body, this pathology has been systematically weakening the social and physical infrastructure that made the West strong and capable. This pathology is nothing less than progressivism. Progressivism is an especially divisive and destructive force because it combines three features that individually are bad enough, but when fused become an absolutely horrid composition. The first of these is a penchant for undermining and...

    President Joe Biden's nominee for the Supreme Court of the United States is everything you thought she'd be. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who will likely replace Justice Stephen Breyer, has the support of progressives across the country. Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser noted that Jackson is "backed by many of America's most radical pro-abortion groups" as well as "on record opposing the free speech rights of pro-life advocates pleading to save lives outside abortion cetners and supporting the false claim that abortion is 'health care.'" That, of course, is no surprise. Biden is the most pro-abortion president in...

    In a move critics are calling “unwise and potentially destructive,” the United Methodist Church has delayed its General Conference meeting for a third time amid the COVID-19 pandemic, prompting theologically conservative United Methodists to announce the official launch of a new denomination. On Thursday, General Conference organizers announced they are postponing the meeting to 2024 “due to COVID-related and governmental policies/constraints.” The 2020 General Conference originally had been set for May 2020 in Minneapolis but was rescheduled for Aug. 29 – Sept. 7, 2021. It was rescheduled again for 2022 at the same venue. Commission Chairperson Kim Simpson said the...

    Like our brothers and sisters in the other Blue State Gulags, we New Yorkers have been to hell and back these past couple of years under the reign of King COVID. Unless you have been here, those of you who are fortunate enough to live in a Free State have no idea what we’ve been going through. We have seen our fundamental liberties and civil rights, which we used to take for granted as part of our American heritage, taken from us by a cabal of the most evil scientists, bureaucrats, and politicians ever assembled in America. We have mask...

    There are many significant moments in American history that have informed the principles of America’s tradition of liberalism, but not since the American founding have we lived in one so important. The United States is at a “1776 Moment” of ideological transformation. The American Revolution of 1776 marked a change of political ideology from constitutional monarchy to liberalism. Today, the ideological transformation is from liberalism to progressivism.

    Under one party rule, ‘Criminals know how to exploit California’s policies for their gain’. Californians have recently been treated to images of mountains of trash along the Union Pacific rail line in Los Angeles. CBS-LA reporter John Schreiber went to the site and took video of looted packages from Amazon and UPS, prescription drugs, Amazon packages, “unused Covid tests, fishing lures, epi pens. Cargo containers left busted open on trains.” His videos went viral on social media, and many news reports followed. California Gov. Gavin Newsom visited the site Thursday and helped perform clean up for the cameras. “What has...

    The right-wing fight to suppress the teaching of uncomfortable truths in public schools reached a comical new low this week in a Virginia bill that blatantly misstated a basic fact about U.S. history. Wren Williams, a 33-year-old Republican, pre-filed the bill on Tuesday, the day before he was sworn in as a new member of the Virginia House of Delegates. It proposed a new standard for regulating high-school social studies curricula in the state, including a requirement that students learn about “the first debate between Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.” This was a clear misunderstanding of the 1858 “Lincoln-Douglas debates,”...

    Parents in the Austin, Texas, area expressed outrage after a technology teacher read a Dr. Seuss-style poem mocking “evangelicals” and parents who have expressed concerns about books they call pornographic. Krista Tyler, instructional technology specialist at Grisham Middle School in the Round Rock Independent School District (ISD) read the poem at the Leander ISD school board meeting Dec. 16. “Everyone in Leander liked reading a lot/ but some evangelicals in Leader did not,” Tyler begins. “These kooks hated reading, the whole reading season./ Please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason./ It could be perhaps critical thinking causes...

  • Where did all of the progressives go?

    12/12/2021 10:51:12 AM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 29 replies
    In understanding why progressivism and liberalism are not the same thing and even moreso, why progressivism hates liberalism, there are two inescapable facts: 1) During the progressive era, progressives were everywhere. 2) Today, progressives are everywhere. Well, what's in the middle? For some reason, no matter where I go there is an extreme resistance on the part of conservatives to admit (out loud or even perhaps even to themselves) that progressives re-labeled themselves as liberal and are now wearing camoflage. Why is this? I don't know. Every now and then you see someone attempt to dig it out and they...

    A CBS contributor on Wednesday morning told viewers to have appetizers in the garage while taking rapid Covid tests before Thanksgiving dinner if they don’t feel comfortable asking guests for their vaccine papers. “It might be a difficult conversation before people step into your house to say, ‘whoa, wait a minute, where’s your card? What’s your status?’ before you walk into my home,” CBS Mornings’ co-host Nate Burleson said.

    RACINE COUNTY, Wis. - Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling on Wednesday, Nov. 24 called for the immediate removal of a county supervisor who allegedly posted a man's $10,000 bail. Video provided to FOX6 News by Schmaling shows that man – identified as Adrian Jefferson – with a high-powered weapon. The sheriff said Jefferson is currently facing a multitude of charges, accused of stealing SWAT equipment from a SWAT operator's home; that includes a pistol, sniper rifle and another fully-automatic rifle. Jefferson is also facing felony charges of armed robbery, carrying a concealed weapon and intentionally pointing a firearm at law...

    ... Eklund has built his New York–based Elliman subsidiary, the Eklund Gomes Team, around what he calls the “golden triangle” of U.S. real estate: New York, Miami, and L.A. But as he and his partners got wind of Texas’s booming population and economy in recent years, they started planning to expand here—to Houston, Austin, and Dallas, another kind of golden triangle. As he would tell me later, “I was in Beverly Hills yesterday, and Texas real estate was the only thing anyone wanted to talk to me about.”

When I moved here from France in 1999, I believed that, while far from perfect, America still very much embraced the values held by its founders, especially a respect for pluralism and viewpoint diversity In fact, I've long believed that the First Amendment's protections for freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly and petition are indispensable ingredients for the success of a country with hundreds of millions of diverse people whose ancestors arrived here from all over the world. By the time I moved...

    After watching a video of that climate-change girl, I felt moved to post an informal survey about the liberal mindset. I'd love to know Freepers' thoughts on the following questions: 1. Does a bitter mindset lead a person to become a leftist? OR 2. Does leftist ideology lead a person to become bitter? OR 3. Neither?
