On Halloween, the New York Times reports about the application of politically correct thought to the winter holiday of sugar and dress-up. (But the front-page story did not include any bad pictures of what not to do — better be safe!) It explains why kids and adults are hectored to be very careful in choosing their […]
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 […]
A recent survey found that more than two-thirds of voters favor living in areas where citizens can be armed for self-defense. This is a traditional value, backed by the Constitution and a 2008 Supreme Court decision.
Americans Prefer Living in Neighborhoods With Guns, Rasmussen Reports, June 12, 2015
American Voters overwhelming prefer living in a neighborhood where […]
We know that liberals don’t care about having a productive business climate, as indicated by how much they regulate the life out of it. How then do they think economic growth can be induced into happening?
Judging by Joe Biden’s recent remarks to the National Association of Manufacturers, he envisions a ponzi scheme of endless immigration […]
One hears a lot of crazy talk from Texans about how their rock-solid conservatism will withstand efforts of Democrats to turn the state blue. Oh, we’re not like nutty California, they sniff. But confidently conservative Texans are whistling past the demographic graveyard.

Immigration turned California from […]
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

As he promised, Pope Francis showed up Monday on a southerly outpost of Europe to express sympathy with illegal alien Africans seeking to take European jobs at a time of high unemployment. (See my blog from last week Pope Will Pray for Invasive Africans, but Has No Apparent Compassion for Italians Who Bear the Brunt.)
The big Death-to-America amnesty bill is being debated in the Senate now and we know what that means — it’s Sob Story Season! Yes, it’s time to drag out the most sniffle-inducing yarns about foreigners who created unhappiness for themselves by breaking America’s immigration laws. But in elite newsrooms, the problem is Americans’ mean-spirited insistence […]
Sweden’s devolution from being a fairly harmless social welfare nation into the nanny state from hell is a cautionary tale of well intentioned liberalism run amok. A major symptom is the government-knows-best attitude regarding education, and the little citizens better shape up if they want to get along. The specific problem with education started in 2010 […]
Former Senator Rick Santorum observed the other day that universities are indoctrination factories of liberalism. That’s hardly news, but discussing the obvious is becoming more necessary in these conflicted times.
Rick Santorum: Left uses college for “indoctrination”, CBS, January 25, 2012
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Wednesday that “the left” uses universities to indoctrinate young people […]
It’s a crime what many universities do to impressionable young minds. Freshmen students go in expecting an advanced education with intellectual stimulation arising from the debate of great ideas. Instead they undergo liberal reprogramming that would make Pol Pot proud.
For some reason, cultural Marxists are crazy for white guilt. Apparently worship of the great god […]
I’ve been reading Ann Coulter’s new book Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America which examines emotional groupthink and its negative consequences. So expressions of the mob have become particularly fascinating.
Coulter notes that the full flowering of the mob came during the French Revolution, in which the mob’s Reign of Terror caused the deaths […]
