A Modest Proposal Regarding Antifa*

*with apologies to Jonathan Swift We all know that the vicious hooligans who call themselves “Antifa”, aside from having virtually no fashion style, or in all truth, no discernible intellectual ability, tend to dress in all black: black hoodie, mask, sunglasses, black slacks, black hearts…which makes it somewhat difficult to [Read More]

Heil, Google! A round-up of interesting takes on a fascist corporate culture

Google’s promise was that it would allow an unfettered platform for free speech and thought. Its college-grad employees, though, made it a fascism farm. I stopped using Google’s search engine years ago, although I’m still chained to Gmail. I was one of the first Gmail users back when it was [Read More]

A Redneck Defense of Dean June Chu’s First Amendment Rights

Yale Dean June Chu’s right to free, if offensive, speech trumps hurt feelings — and rednecks are tough enough to handle an academic’s silly insults. On behalf of all fellow rednecks / white trash, if you believe in the First Amendment, then you should be defending Yale’s Dean June Chu [Read More]

Satirizing Self-Satire

By: Mike McDaniel    As I tell my students when we’re dealing with common literary terms, satire is a form of comedy where one makes fun of individuals or institutions by exaggeration, or by telling the whole truth about them. I suppose I should update the definition a bit, because [Read More]

The Bookworm Beat 4/24/17 — “watching as the Left continues circling the drain” edition

This Bookworm Beat has all shades of Progressive insanity (fake data, attacks on free speech, Chelseamania), complete with links and my trenchant comments. Keep circling that drain. Before I get into the meat of this post detailing the worst emanations from the Democrats and their fellow travelers on their Left, [Read More]

A microcosm of the maddening mix of Progressive hate, ignorance, and nonsense at an American college

Despite a small spark of rationality, Macalester College’s weekly paper displays the Progressive hate, ignorance, and nonsense at an American college. Knowing my passion for free speech, someone sent me a small sign of hope: a link to a student-written opinion piece from the weekly student newspaper at Macalester University [Read More]

Wellesley students love them some Stalinism

Snowflakes or Totalitarian starter kits? The editorial staff of Wellesley College’s student newspaper recently wrote that anyone who dares utter a politically incorrect thought should be met with “hostility.” In other words, expressing “incorrect” views might prove dangerous. This is Liberal tolerance. Embrace indoctrination, or else “We have all said [Read More]

Is Twitter censorship Constitutional?

It is no secret that Twitter (Facebook AND Google) has been censoring Conservatives, Independents, and Libertarians under the guise that they are private entities and have the right to decide who can use their sites and who cannot. The extent of Twitter and Facebook’s purging of non-Progressives are sending up [Read More]

Donald Trump

You’re On a List

I have noticed for weeks that many of my posts show up late in my Twitter feed and other times, they do not show up at all. In addition, when opening my twitter feed, I find that it’s several hours to a day behind leading me to wonder what the [Read More]

[VIDEO] Finally recognizing Leftism is regressive, not progressive

Prager U has another good video out, about those regressive Progressives. This video comes from Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report. He’s a one-time Progressive who finally figured out that Progressivism is yet another Orwellian misnomer from the Left. I agree completely and will only add (because if I don’t toot [Read More]

National Review cruise — The First Amendment

On behalf of Bookworm, I’m reposting her account of an NRO Cruise she’s embarked on . Enjoy! November 14, 2016 Today’s seminars were about the First and Second Amendment discussions. Both panels were interesting but I was absurdly gratified to discover that, with few exceptions, nothing was said that we [Read More]

The Bookworm Beat 10/21/16 — the “politics as usual” edition and open thread

The American media suddenly discovers antisemitism in America. You know it’s not a coincidence when several mainstream media outlets that every non-conservative Jew reads suddenly announce that Donald Trump’s supporters are crazed antisemites. These are, of course, the same media outlets that have been silent for years about the antisemitism at [Read More]
