Are liberal elites capable of learning from events that contradict the theory?
Certainly not Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. He recently made headlines by remarking that “Borders are the worst invention ever!”
Whoa. That comment followed an invasion via immigration of over a million unfriendly Syrians and other […]
Writer Heather MacDonald appeared with Rush Limbaugh on Friday and discussed the horrific murders of five Dallas police officers. It’s a very important conversation, particularly about what’s at stake: without the thin blue line of policing, civilization faces anarchy.
Her well researched new book “The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order […]
You can always count on the New York Times to present the anti-American view while clothing it in liberal journalistic propriety. Wednesday’s front page included the headline “Muslims stung by indifference to their losses” — referring to the apparent disinterest of the West to terror attacks in dar al-Islam. That observation is odd because the ummah […]
Diversity ideology — the belief that all cultures are equal (despite daily evidence to the contrary) — certainly creates dangerous, even suicidal public policy. Today’s disturbing example was the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote in favor of an amendment from Senator Leahy to prohibit the barring of any would-be immigrant on religious grounds.
The amendment was meant to […]
Today’s liberal campuses would make Pol Pot feel comfortable, given their extreme enforcement of leftist dogma, where no deviation is permitted. Using verboten phrases like “illegal alien” can bring punishment for students, who are encouraged to engage in classroom discussion, but only with approved opinions. Colleges chatter endlessly about the importance of racial diversity, but they […]
It’s not exactly news that President Obama uses race and other tribalisms to divide Americans into antagonistic groups for political reasons. As the first black president, he could have been a uniter by stressing what all Americans share, but he has instead used every opportunity to go the other way.
Psychiatrist Keith Ablow delved a little deeper […]
The President really should avoid the National Prayer Breakfast because it is not a good venue for his unique skill set. Rather than adopting an attitude of humble spirituality, his inner lecturer tends to take over, and expresses itself in tiresome tropes of moral equivalency like comparing medieval Christianity with today’s headchoppy arsonist Islam.
His strongest […]
The only thing worse than an overgrown national government is a bloated transnational bureaucracy, and the European Union is indeed the unaccountable modern super-state run amok. The distant government is disliked by many Europeans, but remains stubbornly entrenched, passing ever more niggling laws to control behavior, not protect freedom.
Reporter Dale Hurd visited Brussels to check […]
The crazy-left members of the LA City Council recently added Muslims to the growing list of diverse tribes demanding more positive attention from the mainstream. One of the problems with modern liberal thinking is the inability to consider the concept of “enemy” — multiculturalism seems to have that effect.
Not every Muslim human is a murderous […]
In 1996, Californians voted with a 54 percent majority to prohibit racial preferences via Proposition 209. Race hucksters have been squawking ever since, and certain institutions, particularly the University of California, have come up with a string of squirrelly work-arounds, such as “holistic” admissions.
The latest liberal revolt against achievement is SCA5, a bill passed in […]
It can be iffy to compare polling done by different companies, since the exact wording can affect outcome. Still, a recent Rasmussen survey may reflect considerable disillusion in government, perhaps as a result of the monumental failure of Obamacare.
61% Favor Smaller Government With Fewer Services and Lower Taxes, Rasmussen Reports, February 25, 2014
Voters have a […]
In a decision of the Fourth Circuit Appeals Court, judges allowed that an illegal alien MS-13 gangster could get on a path to citizenship because he had renounced his gang affiliation. A couple of Republican House members are upset at the precedent that decision would set, but perhaps the judges had merely absorbed the spirit […]
