  • Why It's Time to Treat the Hammer and Sickle Like the Swastika

    The Intellectual Takeout ^ | 8/8/18 | Richard Mason
    If someone were to ask you to think of either extreme of the political spectrum, odds are you would immediately picture a swastika at one end, and a hammer and sickle at the other. Regardless of your views of the left-right paradigm, or whether you subscribe to horseshoe theory or not, we (rightfully) tend to perceive fascism and communism as the standard ideologies of the extreme. As such, many of us would also feel rather uneasy seeing those two symbols. Upon seeing a swastika, we are immediately reminded of the evils of the Nazi regime, and are accordingly repulsed. To...

    Falmouth, England (CNN) When President Donald Trump used his elbows at international summits, it was to throw them -- on trade, on Russia and, once, to help remove the Montenegrin prime minister from his path to a photo-op. His successor Joe Biden used his elbows differently this week. Arriving to his first global summit, he crooked his arm to extend pandemic-era greetings to a group of leaders who no longer have to tiptoe around a truculent and often angry American president. Officials attending this week's Group of 7 summit on the Cornish coast in England are emerging shell-shocked after four...
  • FRIDAY FEMINIST FREAKOUT: Filipovic Demands Vaccine Passports Or ‘QR Codes’ To Prove Immunity

    The CDC’s recent relaxing of mask mandates for vaccinated people has left many COVID doomsayers frantically wondering what to do next. After all, pesky anti-vax Trumplodytes will just lie, say they’re vaccinated and get away with not wearing masks. Thus, crazed feminist Jill Filipovic proposed a mandated Vaccine passport, a "QR code" or something, so we can know who has gotten the jab or not. Isn’t the left just replete with earnest little fascists? Filipovic’s totalitarian sentiments arose in response to the CDC and President Geezer removing mask mandates for vaccinated people. Of course the question as to who can...
  • The Chinese may not be quite as successful as they appear: There are internal problems unique to totalitarian societies that are already gnawing away at China’s innards

    From where we sit today, with a feckless president sliding into dementia, whose family has received billions from the Chinese and who may be caught in the web of blackmail for his, or his son’s, sexual predilections, China is in the catbird seat and we are doomed. Perhaps, though, China is not as all-powerful or impregnable as it appears. Totalitarian societies have serious structural problems and China is showing all of them. My initial premise is that there is no better system for wealth creation than the free market. Before leftists shackled America with punitive wealth transfer taxes and harmful...

    This country has fallen into sad times. The Barbarians have breached the gate, and taken control of the most powerful country the world has ever known. In this post I offer 12 things we can be assured of will happen. I asked this same question a week ago. Well this past weekend the persecution, from the Democrat Socialists and their elitists friends, has already begun. So what are we, as freedom loving Americans, planning on doing about it? My fighting side wants us to take up arms and fight till the death to stop that which we all fear is...

    Liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald scorched the left-wing establishment and Big Tech for taking totalitarian measures against conservatives. Greenwald condemned Big Tech after multiple platforms purged sitting President Donald Trump. “A handful of Silicon Valley oligarchs decide who can and cannot be heard, including the President of the United States. They exert this power unilaterally, with no standards, accountability or appeal,” Greenwald lamented in a Jan. 7 tweet. He warned followers on Jan. 8: “The centralized power over US democracy (and other democracies) concentrated in the hands of a tiny number of unaccountable Silicon Valley oligarchs is stunning, unprecedented and unsustainable.”...

    This week, Dr. Vin Gupta, a health policy analyst for NBC News, said on MSNBC that even after people get their 2nd dose of vaccine, they should STILL wear a mask and avoid travel until everyone is vaccinated. Ted Cruz did not appreciate that suggestion. Rep. Jim Jordan had a similar comment. First, it was don’t wear a mask. Then, it was slow the spread. Then, it was lock everything down. Then, it was wear a mask. Then, it was wait for the vaccine. Now that we have the vaccine, they tell us it’s not going to stop. Freedom!—...

    The Epoch Times ^ | November 30th | Molly McCann
    In October, United Airlines tested “the first transatlantic trial of Common Pass, an app that creates a standard digital format for COVID-19 test results.” The app has been developed by the Commons Project and the World Economic Forum, and the hope is that it will both facilitate travel across borders and provide confidence to passengers that it’s safe to fly again. The pass right now reports on a traveler’s COVID-19 test status, but it could easily transition to track vaccination status, and indeed the industry expects it to do just that. The acceptance of these types of apps as a...

    Tory MP Sir Charles Walker has raged at 'disgraceful and un-British' police officers as they bundled an elderly woman into a van for protesting outside Parliament. The former chair of the 1922 Committee told the officers that their actions were 'an outrage' as he walked across towards Portcullis House on Tuesday afternoon. Various reports said that the 72-year-old woman was participating either in an anti-lockdown protest or an anti-vaccine demonstration. Raising the incident as a point of order, Sir Charles told the Commons: 'I have just witnessed an elderly lady peacefully protesting with a handful of other people be arrested...

    The Trump Accountability Project Remember what they did. We must never forget those who furthered the Trump agenda. We should welcome in our fellow Americans with whom we differ politically. But those who took a paycheck from the Trump Administration should not profit from their efforts to tear our democracy apart. The world should never forget those who, when faced with a decision, chose to put their money, their time, and their reputations behind separating children from their families, encouraging racism and anti-Semitism, and negligently causing the unnecessary loss of life and economic devastation from our country's failed response to...

    FrontPage Magazine’s tagline is correct: 'Inside every progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out.' FrontPage Magazine’s tagline warns that “Inside every progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out.” Progressive leftists showing their true totalitarian mindset have emerged and shown up in Portland and other major U.S. cities. Useful idiots among the liberal elites are enabling them. In true Orwellian style, the progressive leftists are poisoning language to exert mind control. Violence now means white silence and politically incorrect speech. You must say what the radical left tells you to say or you are committing unspeakable violence for which...

    [David Horowitz is the author of the forthcoming book Blitz: Trump Will Smash the Left and Win, to be published on June 2 by Humanix Books and available now for pre-order.] Nancy Pelosi is the leader of a party that has accused the president and the 63 million Americans who voted for him of betraying their country, destroying its Constitution, colluding with its enemies, causing the deaths of thousands of coronavirus victims, and hating immigrants, Muslims, people of color, gays, and women. According to Pelosi and the Democrats, Trump is so dangerous a threat to the republic that he must...

    The Progressive believes in precisely two things: his own magnificence and the constructive power of brute force. In combination, they lead him naturally from the role of pestiferous busybody to brutal dictator. Where the productive man dreams of the things he might create if only left alone by his fellows, the Progressive dreams of the world he could create if only the lives and property of his fellows were at his disposal. The roots of his pathology lie in that oldest and most destructive of all human vices, the desire for the power to rule over other men. As naked...
  • George Washington mural 'traumatizes' San Fran students; high school may remove art

    Washington Times ^ | May 2, 2019 | By Douglas Ernst
    A San Francisco school district may remove an 83-year-old mural of President George Washington from, ironically, George Washington High School because it “traumatizes students and community members.” The work of artist Victor Arnautoff, a communist, may no longer be progressive enough for “Fog City.” His 13 panels for the high school, created in 1936, have been deemed problematic by the San Francisco Unified School District. Officials say some the artist’s historical depictions are offensive to Native Americans and blacks. Laura Dudnick, a spokeswoman for the district, told educational watchdog the College Fix via email Thursday that Mr. Arnautoff’s work was...

    The 20th Century was the era of the “new man,” and leftist leaders are preaching the same failed sermon again today. From Mussolini to Mao, the totalitarians of both left and right recognized that their ideologies required a basic change in human nature. Italian fascism, emerging from the Great War, insisted that the heroes of the battlefield were the only ones qualified to lead Italy to new glories. As time passed, Mussolini maintained that it was imperative to train a new generation, with the qualities demonstrated by the war fighters, to govern the country. Fascist Italy needed a new...

    December 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs has supported a brochure that aims at changing the behavior of preschool-aged children who are raised by what the brochure’s authors call “right-wing” parents who oppose “gender” theory, “sexual diversity,” the “sexualization” of children, and “immigration.” Many Germans are protesting the brochure, calling it unacceptable for the state to intrude into the lives of families. Some have noted how such an intrusion is similar to what had been previously known in Germany during the times of both National-Socialist (Nazi) and Communist dictatorships. The German government is said to...

    Democrats turn impartial fact-finding into taxpayer-funded opposition research. The Left ruins everything. That’s because the Left stands ready to eradicate any norm at any time if there is political advantage in it. The latest to be cast aside are the precepts that we never tolerate unbridled, abusive investigations, nor do we abide full-blown criminal investigations without solid evidence that a crime has been committed — and even then, we demand adherence to time-honored limits. In the probes of Donald Trump and, now, Brett Kavanaugh, these norms have been wiped away by the simple expedient of rebranding criminal investigations. Now the...

It is real. We need to act now or the consequences will be catastrophic. In the interests of “balance”, the media often feels the need to include those who outright deny the reality of human-triggered climate change. Balance implies equal weight. But this then creates a false equivalence between...
