    Mark Tapson is the Shillman Fellow on Popular Culture for the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Books on America’s racial divide – primarily from the woke, purportedly “anti-racist” left – are all the rage today, making bestselling millionaires out of race hustlers like Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo. Generally speaking, they promote the false narrative that America’s very founding is grounded in slavery, not liberty; that Americans are racist in our very DNA, as Barack Obama once put it; and that we are still in thrall today to an irredeemably systemic racism. Philosopher, author, and DePaul University professor Jason D....

    This past week, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad was the latest victim of the West’s cancel culture, as she was disinvited from a book event by Canada’s Toronto District School Board. Alongside colonialism, imperialism, and nation-building, “cancel culture” is the latest of toxic Western ideas to be foisted upon the Middle East.

  • Tell Us Again Democrats, Who’s The Racist?

    You can’t do anything anymore without some leftist wingnut calling you a racist. In fact, everything is racist now; statues, sports mascots, all Republicans, and even a rock. The term has been abused so much that it’s losing its meaning. So, as a refresher on what is, and is not, racism, let’s play a little game of racist trivia. Who started the Civil War in an attempt to retain slavery – under the moniker of “state’s rights”? The Confederacy started the war when it bombarded Fort Sumpter, under the orders of its President — Jefferson Davis. Prior to secession, Davis...
  • Massachusetts, not Virginia, was the first colony to legalize slavery

    American Thinker ^ | 12/18/2021 | Bob Ryan
    For there to be slavery in any colony, laws had to be written making the practice legal. Prior to the slave laws, indentured servants were given the same contracts regardless of where they were from. Once the contracts were fulfilled, servants were free regardless of where they came from. There is a stubborn myth in American history that claims Virginia was the first colony to legalize slavery. If not Virginia, then some other southern colony. It was as if the northern colonies were completely untouched by the horrors of owning a person. The first colony to legalize slavery was not...

    Failure to repay a loan taken from China in 2015 to improve the Entebbe Airport resulted in the Chinese government taking possession of the country and its entire population. Ugandan Finance Minister Matia Kasaija admitted he had not thoroughly examined the terms of the loan documentation and apologized "for the hardships that will befall our people. As I now read the terms, our people are now the chattel property of the Chinese government and will be shipped as replacement workers for Uyghurs who succumb to the harsh conditions in China's solar panel factories. Perhaps it is somewhat consoling that the...

    President Joe Biden has slashed the deportation of illegal migrants from 25 cities by roughly 90 percent, so helping business groups with a flood of desperate, low-wage workers. Biden’s business giveaway was revealed by the Center for Immigration Studies, which also showed that Biden’s deputies have reduced by two-thirds the deportation of criminal migrants who threaten Americans and the nation’s growing population of illegal migrants.

    The New York City Council Chamber voted to remove a historic statue of former President Thomas Jefferson, citing his history as a slave owner. The statue, commissioned by a U.S. Navy commodore in 1833, spent 187 years in the City Council’s chambers before being removed from its pedestal Monday, according to the New York Post. Approximately a dozen Marshall Fine Arts workers surrounded the structure with wooden and foam boards before using a pulley system to lower it into the downstairs rotunda and carrying it out the back door, the Post reported “Removing a monument without a public conversation about...

    It was billed as a land of promise — a place where free Black Americans could obtain more political rights and a better quality of life. Liberia did not receive its name until 1824, but the territory that became its capital city was purchased on Dec. 15, 1821. Almost exactly 200 years later, a Liberian historian has discovered that original purchase agreement — a document missing since 1835 that sheds light on the acquisition of the only U.S. colony in Africa.

Its a huge problem for us. Pimping a new book that he will hope you will buy, Andrew Roberts (the Book's author) writes this glowing piece for The Smithsonian about you know, George III, he wasn't all that bad of a guy! Hey I have an idea. Maybe we should've stayed under monarchism. That whole "liberty thing"? Perhaps that's overrated. Sarcasm aside, take a look at paragraph number 2: We can now see,...
