  • Why Americans Are More Like The Indian Tribes Of The Pilgrims’ Day Than We’ll Admit

    The Federalist ^ | December 7, 2020 | Christopher Caldwell
    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...

    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...

    Commentary Magazine ^ | 9/2020 | Christine Rosen
    You Will Be Re-Educated Christine Rosen None On September 4, 2020, Russell Vought, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, sent a brief memo to the heads of the executive departments and agencies of the federal government. Its purpose was straightforward: to end the practice by any federal government agency of using training materials that promote “critical race theory” or “white privilege” or that “teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is either an inherently evil or racist country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.” The memo advised that further...
  • POLL: 86.7% Of People Won’t Watch The NFL If Players Kneel During The National Anthem

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9/10/2020 | David Hookstead
    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...

    The Federalist ^ | August 29, 2020 | Brian Dunigan
    Dismissed by some critics as a needless origin story, HBO's 'Perry Mason' reboot is exactly the type of high-minded storytelling we need today. This article contains spoilers. The man from the country has not expected such difficulties: the law should always be accessible for everyone, he thinks, but as he now looks more closely at the gatekeeper in his fur coat, his large pointed nose and his long, thin, black Tartar’s beard, he decides that it would be better to wait until he gets permission to go inside. — Franz Kafka, “Before The Law” Franz Kafka hated the draconian bureaucracies...

    In the realm of 2020’s ‘stupid decisions made in the name of racial sensitivity’ changing the name of the Washington Redskins, while still stupid, is perhaps towards the bottom of the list. Many have already suggested changing the team’s mascot rather than its name: Given the direction the NFL is headed these days why not go a step further and require all NFL teams change their names to various potato cultivars? The options are numerous and colorful making name choices plentiful. For example how about the Green Bay Jewels: The Minnesota Purple Vikings: The New York  Roosters: The Buffalo Butterballs:...

    sday, the Jesuit periodical America sounded a dark note: “Are Nigeria’s Christians the target of a genocide? That is the conclusion of a number of religious freedom analysts and Nigerian clergy.” Yet the venerable Leftist Catholic magazine’s warning was veritably dripping with irony, for the same publication has for quite some time been vilifying and smearing people who did speak out against the persecution of Christians in Nigeria and elsewhere...America magazine is not actually being as inconsistent as it may seem at first glance. Even though America’s Kevin Clarke identifies Boko Haram as made up of “Islamic militants,” it is...

    Another night, another round of ethnic cleansings via the removal of statues of dead white guys across the country. Sad to say Detroit has joined the fray, voluntarily removing the bust of Christopher Columbus which has been on display in the city of 110 years. The charge was led by Mayor Duggan who in turn was led by political correctness, as is every politician in America with the exception of PDJT. Here is Mikey, establishing his privileged white boy bona fides: “I've been bothered for a while by the fact that the statue is occupying such a place of prominence...

    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...

    Vice President Pence addressed his decision not to wear a mask at his visit to the Mayo Clinic last week during Fox News' virtual town hall Sunday, telling moderators Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum that he "should have worn a mask" despite the fact that he and everyone around him have been tested for the virus regularly. "From early on the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] made it clear you wear a mask to prevent you from conveying the coronavirus to other people, and since the president and I are in the unique position... we're tested often, I...

    Firefighters in St. Catharines, Ont. have been told to turn down the heat on their steamy annual calendar or risk losing municipal backing for the fundraiser. Every year, members of the St. Catharines Fire Combat Team strip down and flex their muscles for a good cause with proceeds going to charity. But now local officials say firefighters either have to cover up or not wear their uniforms for the shoot, because municipal resources can't be used for the publication of bare-chested photos of employees. Deputy chief administrative officer David Oakes insisted the no shirts, no city services mandate isn't meant...

    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,...

    Two Canadian men were fired from their jobs after one of them used the word ‘Eskimo’ in a private conversation. The two men were boarding a flight from Labrador to Newfoundland when Dave Beck said the word “Eskimo.” His friend Thomas Scott responded by asking, “Can you smell him?” The conversation was overheard by by Innu Nation member and former Labrador MP Peter Penashue and other passengers. Beck and Scott, who worked primarily as plasterers and painters, had been working on a hotel renovation project overseen by Kankote Enterprises. “In spite of several years on the job, and being...

    Students at the University of Oklahoma are working to remove the school’s “Boomer” and “Sooner” nicknames out of concern that the words are offensive to Native Americans. According to the OU Daily, the Undergraduate Student Congress met Nov. 12 to mandate a name change for the “Sooner Freshman Council”, citing the words “boomer” and “sooner” as offensive to the Native American community.
