Mourn The Death Of The “Sports Hero”

     Time was, we were told they were men:      Yankees designated hitter Josh Donaldson made a comment to Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson that Anderson contends was “racist.” The benches cleared, tempers were short, and the controversy is still raging; Major League Baseball officials have begun an investigation.      Oh my! So words …

Roe And Race

     While we’re on the subject of Roe v. Wade — we are, aren’t we? – consider the reaction of this crowd of “medical professionals” to a simple question from an unidentified person: Phew. It gets awfully quiet. This man knows how to silence a protest. pic.twitter.com/LeGQ3DToHO — Abigail Dodds (@abigaildodds) May 5, 2022      …

Before I Proceed…

     …to the other business of the day, I must recommend this article to my Gentle Readers. It concerns a minor matter with which you might even be personally acquainted: broken ice-cream machines at McDonald’s:      When you order ice cream, you don’t want to hear “We’re out” or “It’s broken,” yet it has been …

Fidelity To “The Narrative”

     A reposted Jack Cashill article (the original American Thinker posting is apparently inaccessible) on the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin episode illuminates exactly where the media stands on “facts” and “truth.” Cashill was offended by the appearance of a deceitful Trayvon Martin canonization piece, on February 26 of this year, the ten-year anniversary of …

When Systematic Analysis Is No Longer Necessary

     (I chose the title because I’ve grown weary of titles that include “masks dropping.”)      When the enemy shows you his motivations in broad daylight, you no longer need to analyze about them. This is especially the case when his deeds are a perfect match to his words.      The media, in covering the …

The Eternal Exculpation Effort

     I am frequently bemused by the extent to which the bien-pensants will go in their determination to avert their eyes – and ours – from verifiable facts. Some of them seem sincerely to believe that their wishes can remake reality. Others, of course, are simply practicing the tactics of obfuscation and deflection that have …

From The “Je M’accuse” Files

     For some years, I fought back against being called a racist. For some time after that, I simply ignored it. Today I embrace the characterization. I maintain that there’s enough evidence to do so.      Evidence such as this report from the Kyle Rittenhouse trial:      George Floyd’s nephew, Cortez Rice, has issued veiled …

Homicide Rates: Racism Or…Something Else?

     Jared Taylor has the numbers, courtesy of the FBI – and virtually no platform but BitChute is willing to host his presentation: BitChute embedding powered by embed.tube      The numbers tell quite a different tale from that purveyed by our mainstream media.

Systemic Claptrap

     [NOTE: This will be a linkless piece. Either you’ve been keeping up with the news, in particular the developments in left-wing agitprop, or you haven’t. The former group will know what I’m talking about and therefore will need no links. The latter might as well play Solitaire. — FWP]      Among the highest contributions …

“A Decent Place To Live”

     Fairly recently, a dear friend became troubled about the way his neighborhood was changing. He was reluctant to speak of it at first, because it involved the anthropological and sociological third rail of American public discourse: race. Several homes near him had recently been purchased by Negro families. After that, several more homes in …

Do Facts Matter Part 2

     In response to the first episode in this tragedy, reader Clayton commented thus:      “Respectable, law-abiding Negroes could solve the problem by bringing their unruly racial brethren to heel.”      Which is why desegregation and the end of Redlining was a disaster for Blacks: much like the US and EU strip-mining anyone with talent …

Do Facts Matter?

     This appears to be the question of our time – the supreme question of our time.      What does it mean to be oppressed? According to the dictionary, to oppress means “to burden with cruel or unjust impositions or restraints; subject to a burdensome or harsh exercise of authority or power.” If we use …

Unspeakable Truths

     Being right too soon is socially unacceptable.” – Robert A. Heinlein      First, have a piece that appeared at “Liberty’s Torch V1.0” two and a half years ago:      My sainted father, may he rest in peace, was the source of many a sad wisdom. He wasn’t an educated man – he’d dropped out …

Reality Is Racist, Say “Fact Checkers”

     Accurate journalism about crime, it seems, “fosters systemic racism.” Paul Joseph Watson reports:      If taking note of actual events, or faithfully reporting them to an audience of news consumers, is “racist,” then it won’t be long before: Testifying in court that you witnessed the commission of a crime is ruled contempt of court…if …

Dead Giveaways Dept.

     Now and then it all becomes too terribly clear:      Chapman University in California is having segregated “Cultural Graduation” ceremonies including “Black Graduation,” “APIDA Graduation,” “Lavender Graduation,” “disability Graduation,” “Middle Eastern Graduation,” and “Latinx Graduation.”      The segregated ceremonies, which will be taking place in addition to the main commencement, will take place on …

A Profile In Courage

     Facts that are not frankly faced have a habit of stabbing us in the back. – Sir Harold Bowden      I resist the impulse to call any living person a saint. As Simon Templar, played by Val Kilmer in The Saint, put it, “You have to be a very good, and usually very dead …

Unforced And Uncorrected Errors

     In his book In Pursuit: Of Happiness and Good Government, one of Charles Murray’s arguments for the policies he advocates is that they watch the correct “dependent variables:”      When the way we add up results is combined with the difficulties of operationalizing hard-to-reify constructs, the nature of what I call “the dependent variable …

Death Of A Nation

     In 1915, a man named D. W. Griffith made a movie that – as we like to say these days – excited some controversy. It was titled Birth of a Nation. It was a Civil-War movie – that’s the War Between The States for any Copperheads in the audience – that was mostly about …

Unspeakabilities

     There are things we of Polite Society are not supposed to discuss. Indeed, throughout the history of Mankind there have always been such things. Mention of them was forbidden by custom and the threat of ostracism. However, the specific subjects within the realm of unspeakability have changed as time has passed.      I’ve written …

Concerning The Judicial Lynching Of Derek Chauvin

     This only just sprang to mind:      “We are not fighting against single individuals. We are exterminating the bourgeoisie as a class. Do not look in materials you have gathered for evidence that a suspect acted or spoke against the Soviet authorities. The first question you should ask him is what class he belongs …
