More thoughts on removing Confederate statues

August 18, 2017 Bookworm 0

I explain why I think it’s reasonable to remove Confederate statues — but I also explain the strict limits I place on doing so. In yesterday’s post about Charlottesville and Confederate statues, all the comments seemed to go to the latter issue. On that issue, I wrote that I agree [Read More]

The Google Gestapo debacle . . . leads to excellent satire

August 11, 2017 Bookworm 1

There’s lots of outrage about Google’s war on thought-crimes, but not a lot of satire. Thankfully, what satire there is happens to be WONDERFUL. Google recently made the decision to fire a highly qualified engineer for the thought-crime of suggesting that the Google workplace could encourage a bit more diversity. [Read More]

[VIDEO] Paul Joseph Watson takes on Linda Sarsour

July 21, 2017 Bookworm 1

With panache, Paul Joseph Watson delivers a punishing takedown against Linda Sarsour, an antisemitic, misogynistic, anti-American Muslim progressive. Before January and the Women’s March, I’d never heard of Linda Sarsour. Since then, she’s everywhere — and the more one sees of her, the more repulsive she becomes. Nevertheless, despite her [Read More]

Re Obamacare: Is it people WILL die or people DID die?

June 30, 2017 Bookworm 0

Contrary to the Progressives’ hysterical refrain that people WILL die if Republicans even touch Obamacare, facts show that under Obamacare people DID die. Trump’s twitter spat with Mika (something the critics deplore but that, per my own informal survey, ordinary people either applaud or ignore) temporarily distracted the media and [Read More]

[VIDEOS] Paul Joseph Watson on Muslims and Leftists

June 26, 2017 Bookworm 0

Paul Joseph Watson savagely eviscerates the ignorance, hypocrisy, and self-loathing behind Leftist attacks against whites and support for Islam. As always with Paul Joseph Watson videos, I have a few content warnings: Obscenity, sarcasm, rampant ridiculing of Leftist ignorance and hypocrisy, a failure properly to appreciate cultural relativism, an obsession [Read More]

Israeli Envoy: Anti-Israel Campus Campaigns ‘A Real War’

June 23, 2017 JoshuaPundit 1

Discussing the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement targeting the Jewish state, Ambassador Dani Dayan, Israel’s Consul General in New York, declared that the “real war” is the intimidation, disruption and attempted silencing of pro-Israel voices on U.S. college campuses. “There we have a real war,” Ambassador Dayan said, [Read More]
