    The World No. 3 golfer was heard over a Golf Channel broadcast of a PGA Tour tournament in Hawaii muttering a homophobic slur after missing a putt in the third round. “It’s terrible. I’m extremely embarrassed. It’s not who I am,” he continued. “It’s not the kind of person that I am. But it’s … unfortunately I did it and I have to own up to it and I’m very apologetic. “Like I said, it’s in excusable. I’m speechless. … it’s bad. There’s no other way to put it. I need to do better. I need to be better. It’s...

    SPLC website screenshot of its 2019 "hate map." Joe Biden may not yet be president, but it seems the military may already be considering a policy banning servicemembers from activities sponsored by conservative and Christian organizations. Last week, Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller acted on a report from the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Diversity and Inclusion Board. Among other things, the board recommended that official policy “prohibit extremist or hate group activity,” citing the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on the influence of “hate groups” in the military. This should ring alarm bells for conservatives familiar with the SPLC’s...
  • Washington Post Reporter Admits Most Latinos Dislike the Term 'Latinx'

    Although much of the mainstream media over the past few years has attempted to shove the term "Latinx" down our throats and the fact that the word is very unpopular in the Hispanic community, Washington Post Reporter Jose A. Del Real might have sounded what ultimately might be the death knell on 'Latinx.' And it's not because the left has necessarily become less woke. No, the real reason 'Latinx' might finally, mercifully be ditched is because Democrats believe that use of that word could have cost it votes in the 2020 election in Texas and Florida.Del Real revealed the strong...
  • Will You Bend the Knee? Or Will You Stand Up and Live Free?

    Americans have grown dangerously accustomed to tyranny as of late. Whether that tyranny’s source is the incompetent federal government’s agents, such as Dr. Fauci, tyranny from hypocritical blue state governors, or the tyrannical actions of the Big Tech monopolies, Americans don’t resist anymore. They just bend the knee and go along with it. When the government says to stay at home, most people stay at home. If some blabbering fool issues a diktat from city hall that demands businesses remain closed, then most small business owners keep their businesses shuttered, even if that means their life’s work and wealth is...

    CBS Sports ^ | December 13, 2020 | R.J. Anderson
    Cleveland's Major League Baseball team has decided to change its nickname, moving away from the moniker it has employed for more than 100 years and that is considered insensitive to indigenous peoples, according to David Waldstein and Michael S. Schmidt of the New York Times. An announcement from the team could come as soon as this week, per the Times. It's unclear how Cleveland will refer to itself during the upcoming season. One option is to keep the name for an additional year before then transitioning to a new identity; another is to go the route of the National Football...

    Of the two communities that confronted each other 400 years ago in New England, it may now be the Indians who most resemble today's Americans.The following essay is part of The Federalist’s 1620 Project, a symposium exploring the connections and contributions of the early Pilgrim and Puritan settlers in New England to the uniquely American synthesis of faith, family, freedom, and self-government.Possibly someone will surprise us at the last minute. Possibly the coronavirus is to blame. But with 2020 nearly over, it looks like the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’s arrival at Plymouth, Massachusetts, is going to pass uncommemorated.There have...

    The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. The Biden campaign is using causes like women’s safety as a Trojan horse to usher in a new era of internet censorship. Former Vice President Joe Biden has said that he “plans to convene a task force to create best practices for containing online harassment, which disproportionately affects women and young people,” CNBC summarized in a Nov. 10 report. Biden’s campaign website declared that if he gains the presidency, his administration “will shine a light on the online harassment, stalking, and abuse that now is a too-frequent reality for Americans, particularly...

    I’ve been outraged by the cancelling of Columbus Day since 2009. Initially as Dewey From Detroit in Goodbye Columbus: What enters the classroom in one decade emerges as mainstream 15 years later… When you combine the social engineering principals of political correctness and social justice you get…a rejection not only of the explorer that made the building of our great country possible, but the political philosophy that made it a great country. In an era when few Americans bothered to ask “who watches the watchers” fewer still were concerned with “who teaches the teachers.” Unfortunately this is the answer to...

    The Department of Homeland Security will grant millions of dollars in funding to outside organizations focused on combating far-right extremism and white supremacy. The department's program, called Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention, agreed to provide $10 million in grants to organizations including Life After Hate, which was founded by reformed white supremacists and helps people trying to leave the far right, the School of Communication at American University to develop a strategy for combating disinformation circulated by the far right online, and others, according to the Wall Street Journal. A Homeland Security spokesman said the funding is meant to help...

    On the first day of my political philosophy class at Shawnee State University in the spring of 2019, a biologically male student raised his hand and I called on him, unwittingly using the now-incendiary words, “Yes, sir.” As a professor of philosophy, I view the classroom as a place of dynamic discussion and exchange. And I work hard to foster an atmosphere of civility and rational discourse, a place where students can seek truth. This student approached me after class and said that he identified as a woman and demanded, from that point on, that I refer to him as...

    Catholic Teachers Threatened in Pronoun Confusion Baltimore archdiocese capitulating to gender dysphoria BALTIMORE (ChurchMilitant.com) - The Baltimore archdiocese is demanding a Catholic school use male pronouns for a third-grade girl who says she is a boy. (L to R) Denise Ball and the school's principal Nancy Baker Denise Ball, assistant superintendent of Catholic schools in the Baltimore archdiocese, threatened teachers at School of the Incarnation in Maryland with termination if they do not address a third-grade female student as a boy in the name of being "more tolerant." The third-grade student is the daughter of the assistant principal at School...

    There is an organized and growing effort to push back against the cancel culture on college campuses. Thousands of conservative and libertarian scholars and academics are standing up and issuing a ringing endorsement of academic freedom. It’s called “The Philadelphia Statement on Civil Discourse and the Strengthening of Liberal Democracy” and has been signed by such luminaries as Robert George, Christina Hoff Sommers, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and more. The statement embodies concepts that all can embrace — at least, those whose minds haven’t been poisoned by the radical left. Tragically, we are losing these defining features of our democracy. Common...
  • POLL: 86.7% Of People Won’t Watch The NFL If Players Kneel During The National Anthem

    The vast majority of people don’t plan on watching NFL games if players kneel, according to a Twitter poll. The first game of the 2020 season is Thursday night when the Chiefs and Texans play, and there’s a good chance we could see players kneel during the national anthem. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) I asked people in a Twitter poll if they’d tune out in the event of kneeling, and the results weren’t close at all. Of the 4,850 voters, 86.7% voted that they would stop watching if...

    In a piece published today in The Atlantic, John McWhorter writes that he is getting as many as 50 emails a week from academics who are living in fear that their careers could end at any moment. Their fear isn’t the coronavirus it’s the creeping leftist orthodoxy which treats any disagreement as cause to hound someone out of their job. McWhorter labels it a new form of Maoism on campus, complete with struggle sessions straight out of the Cultural Revolution: A statistics professor says:"I routinely discuss the fallacy of assuming that disparity implies discrimination, which is just a specific way...

    So many messages of appalling idiocy, detestable envy, and envy embarrassing to behold, crossed my desk in the last fortnight that I found myself in the rare position of having too much to record — a writer’s dream. But that content also indicated that the bell is tolling, and that I am one of those for whom the death knell sounds. I have watched the universities of the Western world devour themselves in a myriad of fatal errors over the last two decades, and take little pleasure in observing the inevitable unfold. It is a failing of human reason, with...
