    The left claims that their most urgent battle is to save democracy, but when it comes to any questioning of the LGBT lobby, they are the ones who sound like authoritarians. The overtones are unmistakable in the "news" coverage promoting "dozens" of employees walking out of Netflix in Los Angeles on Oct. 20 in protest. The target? A popular Dave Chappelle comedy special, "The Closer." Tens of thousands of anti-abortion advocates can assemble and be ignored, but assemble two dozen transgender lobbyists and NBC and PBS will treat it as momentous. Take NBC's story. Anchor Lester Holt began: "A battle...

    One week after officially becoming a former ESPN employee for refusing the company’s Covid vaccine mandate, sports reporter Allison Williams spoke with Megyn Kelly about her decision. During the interview on SiriusXM, Kelly asked Williams about President Joe Biden stating vaccine order “isn’t about your freedom,” last month. “I have never been so jarred by anything a president said,” Williams said while acknowledging we just spent four years with Donald Trump in office. “To hear the leader of the free world stand up and say, ‘this isn’t about your freedom, I thought ‘oh my god, it is ALWAYS about our...

    Until, two weeks ago, that is, when Armstrong broke his silence to update the world on how the company’s no-politics experiment was going. In a word: swimmingly. On October 1, Armstrong posted a tweet thread revealing that, contra prophecies that his company would face a mass exodus and public shunning over the ban, Coinbase has instead gained new staff comprised of professionals eager to work in an environment dedicated to clear corporate goals rather than murky outside social agendas. “We have a much more aligned company now, where we can focus on getting work done toward our mission,” Armstrong shared,...

    In their landmark 1990 book After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s, gay strategists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen laid out a brilliant plan for changing American attitudes towards homosexuality. They stated that “to desensitize straights to gays and gayness, inundate them in a continuous flood of gay-related advertising, presented in the least offensive fashion possible. If straights can’t shut off the shower, they may at least eventually get used to being wet.” Looking back from the vantage point of 2021, we can now say that this was not a matter...

    As I have noted repeatedly, liberalism and leftism have virtually nothing in common. In fact, leftism is the enemy of liberalism — as a handful of liberals such as former New York Times writer Bari Weiss, former Young Turk Dave Rubin, and others have come to recognize. The left has never believed in free speech and has suppressed dissent wherever it has assumed power. Free speech is a pillar of liberalism, and it has always embraced dissent. The left rejects the anti-racist ideal of color-blindness. Colorblind is the liberal racial ideal. The left supports racial segregation — such as all-black...

    NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s Board of Health on Monday passed a resolution that names racism as a public health crisis, joining the growing list of state and local governments around the country that have done so in recent years. The resolution calls on the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to take steps including reviewing the city’s health code to look for structural racism, and find ways to make changes as necessary. “To build a healthier New York City, we must confront racism as a public health crisis,” Health Commissioner Dr. Dave Chokshi said in a...

    The rape of Loudon County, Virginia parent Scott Smith’s daughter by a biological male wearing a skirt in the girl’s school restroom shows the wisdom of President Trump reversed the Biden/Obama administration’s “guidance” to schools and educators to permit transgender restrooms. The move was condemned as bigotry when it is just common sense. You don’t tempt fate. You don’t store flammables next to an open flame and you don’t have boys using the girls' restroom. Loudon County officials were well aware of the history of cross-gender restroom assaults as they considered their transgender restroom policy, particularly the rape of Scott...

    Attorney General Merrick Garland was one President Barack Hussein Obama’s choice for a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. He may yet be again if Congressional Democrats get their way somehow and pack the Supreme Court beyond its current nine justices. As Dementia Joe Biden’s AG he has proven no moderate as he was advertised to be as he seeks to eviscerate the U.S Constitution one amendment after another. Forget the Bill of Rights – it is just Russian misinformation. Tucked away in the corner of the First Amendment written by old white male supremacists, you know, the guys...

    Let me offer the briefest overview of the core beliefs of the Woke Revolution, which are abundantly clear to anyone willing to look past the hashtags and the jargon. persuasion—the purpose of argument—is replaced with public shaming. Moral complexity is replaced with moral certainty. Facts are replaced with feelings. Ideas are replaced with identity. Forgiveness is replaced with punishment. Debate is replaced with de-platforming. Diversity is replaced with homogeneity of thought. Inclusion, with exclusion. But there is one word we should linger on, because every moment of radical victory turned on it. The word is cowardice.

    WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Colby College is banning discrimination based on caste, a system of inherited social class, becoming one of the nation’s earliest colleges to do so. The private liberal arts college revised its nondiscrimination policy to add caste to its list of protections for the campus community. The efforts were led by a professor who took an interest in caste discrimination across the country and realized the college needed to recognize it as a form of discrimination, the Bangor Daily News reported. “You have to first name what it is to say: This exists, we name it, we...

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Gov. Dan McKee on Friday released a working draft of his administration’s vision for Rhode Island’s future. The 55-page RI2030 plan looks at spurring economic growth, strengthening education, addressing climate change, prioritizing housing, and enhancing public health, among other things. The plan was put together with feedback from the public through 13 virtual community conversations. The draft plan also calls for addressing racial inequity and poverty. “Historic and ongoing systemic exclusion of people of color from economic opportunity has led families of color in Rhode Island to be trapped in the cycle of poverty at higher...

    It is increasingly obvious that modern Americans universities, which are less institutions of unfettered intellectual pursuit than they are "madrasas of wokeness," to borrow from the Independent Women's Forum's Inez Feltscher Stepman, are unsalvageable in most present manifestations. Though there are notable exceptions, many American universities are actually worse than unsalvageable. On-campus debauchery spoils matriculants' lingering senses of virtue and propriety, and woke classroom indoctrination and divisive intersectional poison vitiates the mutually interdependent bonds of citizenry without which no people can cohere. As Arthur Milikh soberly concluded in a 2020 National Affairs essay, "Preventing Suicide by Higher Education": "Universities that...

    If we sat in a boardroom and tried to decide the kind of story that the liberal media is the most hostile to covering -- hostile to the point of wishing it had never existed -- it may be this: Teenage boy describing himself as "gender-fluid" accused of raping a girl in a high school bathroom. This is a story that any liberal media outlet would want to spike, censor, ignore, squelch and bury six feet underground. It's a vivid illustration of what liberals consider a false stereotype. They assume automatically, ideologically, this could never happen -- that a sexual...

    Following Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos’ continued defense of the anti-trans sentiments in comedian Dave Chappelle’s new special, The Closer, at least 1,000 incensed employees are now reportedly planning to participate in a virtual work stoppage on Oct. 20. For nearly a week now, trans and trans-allied staffers have been voicing concerns over Chappelle’s ridicule of the LGBTQ community throughout the special, during which he self-identifies as a TERF (or “trans-exclusionary radical feminist”) and repeatedly dismisses the concept of a gender identity altogether. But in the wake of heated criticisms from both employees and customers, Netflix execs have made the bizarre...

    Donald Trump failed at business… a lot. USFL, Tour de Trump, Trump Resorts, Trump Airlines, Trump University, ect. Leftists love to point that out. But that’s not the whole story. Trump had great successes as well. Not only has he developed world class properties around the globe, but he was also the producer and star of one of the most popular television shows on TV for a more than a decade. Most tellingly of all was his renovation of the Wolman Ice Rink. New York had spent $13 million and six years trying to renovate the Central Park icon when...

    While continuing to assist homeowners that have turned into their parents, Dr. Rick heads to the airport with a group of his patients. Right from the beginning, things are not looking great when Rick finds out that every homeowner is using a paper ticket. The doctor assures that there is nothing him and his patients can't overcome, even this extremely challenging day at the airport. As snack bags are exposed and gate agents are bothered, it's obvious that these homeowners simply can't help who they've become. While Progressive might not be able to prevent customers from becoming their parents, the...

    Sharon Osbourne named the “more than woke” CBS executives who ousted her from her show “The Talk” and said “they’ve destroyed” her. “They are desperate to keep their jobs, they are desperate in these times we live in to be perceived as more than woke,” the 69-year-old former talk show co-host shared Tuesday during the “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast on Sirius XM. “You know, they wanna be seen as Mother Teresa and Jesus Christ … but they’re all hypocrites,” she added. “They’re liars and they’re hypocrites and they’ll do whatever they have to do to keep their job.” (RELATED:...
  • Seattle school cancels Halloween over ‘equity,’ says Black kids don’t celebrate

    A Seattle elementary school canceled Halloween activities over concerns about student equity and inclusion. Specifically, Seattle Public Schools says Black males do not celebrate and, more generally, students of color feel marginalized by the holiday. One parent, however, thinks this is an “exercise in affluent white vanity that is wokeism.” Benjamin Franklin Day Elementary typically hosts Halloween festivities each year. They include a “Pumpkin Parade” where students wear costumes if they choose. But the school administration changed its focus to “foundational beliefs around equity for our students and families,” and, consequently, they’re canceling Halloween. This year the only thing spooky...
