    Liberty Island Magazine ^ | November 7th, 2020 | Tamara Wilhite
    Science fiction and horror author Andrew Fox’s first novel was Fat White Vampire Blues. He’s continued to put out a steady stream of science fiction and fantasy that’s equally edgy and entertaining. For example, he recently released a short story collection titled Hazardous Imaginings: The Mondo Book of Politically Incorrect Science Fiction. And I had the opportunity to interview him.
  • More Than 10,000 Academics and Scholars Sign 'The Philadelphia Statement' Against Cancel Culture

    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...

    BEVERLY HILLS, CA—The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has stripped Schindler's List of its Best Motion Picture award for not having enough LGBTQ+ characters, people of color, and other oppressed groups. "Schindler's List would have been a great movie if it just had a dozen transgendered characters," said Le'Jon de Froofroo, spokesperson for the Academy. "As it is, there are just a bunch of Jews and Germans -- very privileged races." "Also, the movie has Nazis -- this is the current year, for goodness' sake!" Steven Spielberg has been ordered by the Academy to re-release the film...
  • 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...

    How do you deal with your "big boss" who condones all the PC nonsense? This is college. The latest pontification refers to Jacob Blake and the "Dream" speech. Is there anything I can do to stop this? It's sickening. Would sending all her presumptuous pontificating over the years to FOX be good?

    American Thinker ^ | 13 Aug, 2020 | J. Robert Smith
    As of August 2020, we Americans are embroiled in an intensifying cold civil war. Democrats and the left are the aggressors. Cancel culture is a chief weapon. It's not being employed wholesale — yet — but it is being selectively used as a means of instilling fear in the citizenry. As morally repugnant as cancel culture is, in war, the question is invariably asked: must we fight fire with fire? Must we cancel the left and its allies to stop their Jacobin terror? It's a legitimate question. Decent Americans are, naturally, repulsed by the tactic — and, increasingly, personally threatened....

    Have we reached Peak Corporate Cave-In? It kind of looks like it - Trader Joe's has decided to reverse course and not change all the brand labels of its products to satisfy the wokeness demands of a tiny, largely white, racism-parsing left-wing mob. Here's their statement: To Our Valued Customers: In light of recent feedback and attention we’ve received about our product naming, we have some things we’d like to say to clarify our approach.  A few weeks ago, an online petition was launched calling on us to “remove racist packaging from [our] products.” Following were inaccurate reports that the petition prompted...

    Days after dozens of artists, writers and academics, including JK Rowling, Salman Rushdie and Margaret Atwood, signed an open letter decrying the weakening of public debate amid a rise in what they call “illiberalism”, another group has denounced it. The counter opinion comes amid raging debate over 'cancel culture' where prominent people face a backlash for sharing controversial opinions."The signatories, many of them white, wealthy and endowed with massive platforms, argue that they are afraid of being silenced, that so-called cancel culture is out of control, and that they fear for their jobs and free exchange of ideas, even as...

    Scrabble just got W-O-K-E. Players of the classic board game will no longer be able to rack up points for spelling out racial and ethnic slurs, according to Scrabble officials. A total of 236 bigoted words were removed from the official Scrabble word list used at tournaments — in order to make the game friendlier to all types of people, The North American Scrabble Players Association. said Wednesday. “Removing slurs is the very least that we can do to make our association more inclusive,” NASPA CEO John Chew said in a statement. “How can we in this day tell prospective...

    The city of Duluth is moving to delete the word “chief” from the titles of two of its administrative leadership positions in an effort to remove language that some Native Americans and others find offensive. On Monday, the City Council is scheduled to take up an amendment to the city charter to change the name of the city’s “chief administrative officer” to “city administrator.” The city’s “chief financial officer” would be renamed “finance director.”

    NEW YORK — The owner of the Uncle Ben’s brand of rice says the brand will “evolve” in response to concerns about racial stereotyping. Caroline Sherman, a spokeswoman for Mars, which owns Uncle Ben’s, says the company is listening to the voices of consumers, especially in the black community, and recognizes that “now is the right time to evolve the brand, including its visual identity.” In the wake of the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, activists and consumers have demanded that companies take a stand against racial injustice or lose their business.

    When it comes to who is the better shooter and why, men or women, the iconic Irving Berlin duet from Annie Get Your Gun immediately springs to mind. “Anything you can do I can do better! I can do anything better than you” is sung while Annie Oakley and Frank Butler prepare for the climactic sharpshooting contest in the classic Broadway musical. For an object as functionally gender-neutral as a gun, why is it that each of the sexes assumes they are better adept at mastering it? Any quality instructor will tell you the real weapon is not the gun....

    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...

    Just four days after George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis Police Officer, Derek Chauvin, and the video sparked protests across the country, Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz welcomed in a few dozen African American community leaders to talk at One Government Center. Mayor Kapszukiewicz acknowledged that Toledo is 652 miles away from Minneapolis, where the incident happened that resulted in Floyd's death. But he said the video made him sick to his stomach and he made a long-term commitment to opening up communication, and having difficult conversations like he had. In front of the Safety Building after the meeting, the mayor...

    A school district in Maryland revamped its eighth grade U.S. history curriculum after reviewing how it approached topics like slavery. Eighth graders at Montgomery County Public Schools, one of the largest districts in the nation, now mostly use primary sources like letters and speeches to learn about U.S. history, instead of relying on textbooks alone. "It was really important to us to make sure that we are telling an inclusive narrative of American history," said Tiferet Ani, social studies curriculum specialist. "And so to get away from sort of the dominant narrative that's focused on presidents, on generals, you know,...
