  • 'Unhinged': The Zoom Call That Caused a California Teacher To Get Suspended

    Should we call this the zoom call from hell? Maybe that’s a bit much, in general, yet for one California teacher—it’s probably an accurate description. The high school teacher has been suspended for pretty much having a meltdown when her junior class debated remote learning, which doesn’t work (via NY Post):San Marcos High School teacher Alissa Piro was seen on video lambasting the juniors while they appeared to be discussing a dispute over distance learning.“I am so sick to my stomach of parents trying to tell educators how to do their job,” Piro shouted in the video, which was posted...

    Men who identify as women often have a distinct physiological advantage over their fellow female opponents that cannot be denied.MADISON, Wis. — Sherry Mix puts in 10 to 15 hours a week training for elite-level mountain and fat-tire bike races in the region. The Verona, Wis. woman says it’s hard work but rewarding to the women who ride.But as “equity” politics are further infused into just about every aspect of life, including competitive sports, cyclists like Mix are forced to compete on an unequal course. Last month, Mix finished third in a Snow Crown Fat Bike Series event in De...
  • 'Amen and Awomen' Signals More Progressive Nonsense

    A prayer during the swearing-in of the 117th Congress on Sunday, January 3, by Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), ended weirdly. In the ludicrous attempt to be inclusive, Cleaver concluded his prayer with the words “Amen and Awomen.” As we’ve witnessed, the Left has wrestled control of public discourse and is enforcing a new, stricter political correctness edict. Congress, under the demented "leadership" of Nancy Pelosi, is absurdly banning words such as father and mother. It didn't take long for the ultra-flaky Ms. Pelosi to break her own rules. If only the lunacy was confined to Congress… This just in! In...

    On Monday of last week, to use the phrase "sexual preference" was completely acceptable. As recently as last month, multiple gay rights publications used the phrase. Leon Panetta had used the phrase in the past couple of years. Joe Biden has used the phrase this year. Merriam-Webster considered "sexual preference" to be just another version of "sexual orientation." But then Tuesday happened. On Tuesday, the village idiot from Hawaii masquerading as a senator, Mazie Hirono, attacked Amy Coney Barrett for using "sexual preference" instead of "sexual orientation." By Tuesday evening, the employees of Merriam-Webster had changed the phrase in their...

    I know we’re all talking about Joe Biden’s speech in Pittsburgh, which once again showed that his mind has devolved into applesauce, along with the leftist riots that continue to engulf the nation, but we have new political correctness news. Apparently, a DC committee convened by Mayor Muriel Bowser has recommended that the Washington Monument, among other federal memorials in the city, should be marked for removal, relocation, or contextualization. No, you cannot make this up (via WaPo): A committee reporting to D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser recommends renaming dozens of public schools, parks and government buildings in the nation’s...

    A wave of hasty firings is sweeping across the country, driven by demands from what some call the "cancel culture." The New York Times editorial page editor James Bennett ran an op-ed from Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., that displeased the paper's readers and some colleagues, so he lost his job. The chief curator at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Gary Garrels, lost his job, too, after he was accused of being a racist for saying he would still collect art from white men. But the list of those who lost their jobs is much longer, and the rationale...

    The Smithsonian’s budget for this fiscal year is $1 billion.   Of that, $32.6 million is designated for the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). Instead of defunding police, we should be defunding this entity over its disgusting mantra of racism.  In the website’s “Talking About Race” section, an article about “Whiteness” includes numerous statements condemning the United States as a racist society. It reeks of hatred against whites. But its pièce de la résistance was an infographic that should enrage non-whites much more than whites.I say “was” because, after they got caught this past week and thrashed...

    The online mob came for Harald Uhlig. What terrible thing had he done? As I show in my new video, he tweeted that Black Lives Matter "torpedoed itself, with its full-fledged support of #defundthepolice." Instead of defunding, Uhlig suggested, "train them better." Hundreds of people then signed a petition to demand that Uhlig, a University of Chicago professor and head of the Journal of Political Economy, resign. Even prominent economists like Janet Yellen and Paul Krugman joined the mob. Krugman called Uhlig "another privileged white man who evidently cannot control his urge to belittle the concerns of those less fortunate."...

    Do you say what you think? That's risky! You may get fired! You've probably heard about a New York Times editor resigning after approving an opinion piece by Senator Tom Cotton that suggested the military to step in to end riots.Many Times reporters tweeted out the same alarmist wording, "Running this puts Black NY Times staffers in danger."Really? How?In my new video, Robby Soave, a Reason Magazine editor who writes about young radicals, explains, "They only claim it because that's their tactic for seizing power in the workplace."They learned this tactic from so-called woke professors and fellow activists at expensive...

    'Our hate speech policy prohibits videos which assert that someone’s sexuality or gender identity is a disease or a mental illness,' YouTube said in a statement. Information provided exclusively to The Federalist shows YouTube removed a Heritage Foundation video featuring testimony from a former transgender-identifying woman for violating the company’s hate speech policy. YouTube confirmed the decision in a Thursday email to The Federalist.Now Heritage is fighting back with a new video, released first to The Federalist, in which Federalist contributor Walt Heyer doubles down.“I said that children suffering from gender dysphoria should not be encouraged to try experimental hormones...

    Finally, someone had the courage to say it out loud – racism is bad, and we are truly blessed that our celebrities, corporations, and politicians are willing to say so no matter what the cost. Alvin York. Audie Murphy. That weaselly guy from Breaking Bad. This is the pantheon of true American heroes. Except York and Murphy were much less heroic than Whatshisname, since they did not accept personal responsibility for their participation in the genocidal systems of oppression that your man-bunned TA taught you about at Goucher College. They were too busy killing krauts. I say pull down their...

    Remember the heady days of six weeks ago when the earnest wailing of liberal sissies about some imagined thoughtcrime drew respectful attention? Well, it never did from us, because we always knew these people we idiots deserving only of mockery, but some people – nice, friendly people who could not imagine the malignancy in the hearts of these fascists dipwads – took them seriously and actually cared. And then a disease came along that is impoverishing the people it isn’t killing. It’s time to put away childish things, folks, and America seems to be doing that. Well, at least the...

    The cancer of political correctness has reared its ugly head once again. This time the plague struck a Minnesota town, where the local council voted unanimously to drop the pledge of allegiance to be more inclusive. St. Louis Park wants to be more welcoming to newcomers and non-citizens and they decided the best way to do that was to trash a hallmark tradition. To be more welcoming to non-citizens, Americans just need to…not act like Americans. It’s this nonsense that gives me hope, along with the booming economy, that Trump will easily clinch a second term. It’s also partially why...

    In an effort to push back on the Democrats’ blue wave plans next month, we’re seeing plenty of Republicans running against the increasingly divisive and destructive trend of political correctness and thought police tactics of liberals. It’s a message that seems to be getting some traction in swing districts, particularly in California and Oregon where voters of all stripes are feeling the impact of feel-good, socialist theories being enshrined in their state’s laws. But one person I didn’t expect to be jumping on the bandwagon was New York Democratic Senator (and Senate Minority Leader) Chuck Schumer. Yet during a panel...

    Oh, we’re back to this again. For a White House intern was captured throwing up what many on the Left say is a white power hand gesture in a recent photograph with the president. The picture included President Donald Trump and the fall intern class all had them giving a thumbs up for the photograph, except Jack Breuer, who was giving the ‘OK’ sign, which has been used by virtually everyone. Progressives claim the three fingers form a “W,” while the index finger curling to meet the thumb to form an “O” shape somehow forms a “P.” WP= White power...

I am currently the only Jew who wears a kippah at my office every day. In my heavily Southern Baptist and rural town, one would think I would be quite familiar with the consequences of being such an outsider.But, as any honest minority will tell you, that singular idea of what America must be like simply is not accurate....

    PARIS -- The Russian Defense Ministry and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi made separate announcements last week that the Islamic State had been defeated. Of course, this doesn't mean that these terrorists won't be popping up elsewhere like bomb-toting, head-chopping Whac-A-Moles. Last month, the BBC reported a deal that allowed some ISIS fighters to escape the Syrian city of Raqqa -- the Islamic State's former "caliphate" -- under the nose of Western and Kurdish officials, ostensibly to facilitate a declaration of "mission accomplished." The question is where these fighters will pop up next. Are we supposed to believe that they're...

    Well, who would have thought that putting out a bad product and spitting on the American flag would be bad for ratings. The National Football League has seen its week eleven ratings and they’re not good: one million fewer viewers from last year. The NY Post reported that the ongoing battle between Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been the center of NFL coverage. Goodell has put up insane contract demands of a $50 million salary, along with free flights, and health care for his family—for life. This coming from a man who...

    Another one of our great national institutions, the Boy Scouts of America, has officially lost its way. An organization with an impressive history of over one century has buckled to the insidious forces of political correctness. The latest sign occurred this week as the Boy Scouts formally opened their doors to girls. In 2018, girls will be able to join the Cub Scout program and the following year will become eligible to attain the highest rank, Eagle Scout. This act of inclusion was wisely not followed by the Girl Scouts, which will remain an exclusively female organization. According to Jacqueline...

    Don Rickles has died. I pray that his tribe increases. Mr. Comedy was so refreshingly anti-politically correct (PC). We need that, desperately. If he were a budding comedian in this day and age, his career would have died after one day on the stage. Imagine the SJWs crawling all over the stage and pushing this doddering grandpa off… for good! Rickles knew how to rib everyone and touch the hot-button issues. But he wasn’t vulgar or mean-spirited. He wasn’t a jerk. Here were some of his best lines: On the Tonight Show with Jay Leno: “You’re Chinese? That’s what they...
