Oh, The Irony!

     Mostly I’m pissed off that nothing is off limits. Everything is political. Yes, Breitbart was correct, “politics is downstream from culture,” but sometimes I just want to listen to music or watch a movie and not be punched in the nose by somebody else’s politics. — Charlie Brown’s Dildo      Politicizing everything inescapably is …

Don’t Imagine For A Moment…

     …that they don’t really mean it. They do:      God bless Mike Miles for finding this stuff. I haven’t the stomach for it.      It’s time to take this bit of advice equally seriously:      “Take your choice—there is no other—and your time is running out.”

If You’re Still In Any Doubt

     All reason for doubt has been erased: they want your children to be ignorant and bigoted:      A parent has shared a distrubing worksheet provided to students in a Seattle Public School high school English class as part of Black Lives Matter at School Week with KTTH radio host Jason Rantz.      Rantz reports …

Blinding Flashes Of the Obvious Dept.

     “The more you look, the more you see.” — Robert M. Pirsig      “Not necessarily, Bob ol’ buddy.” – Me.      Dennis Prager is a reasonably bright man. He’s made a number of pithy observations over the years. Yet it’s taken him a lot of those years to realize something that I’ve been harping …

A Shift You Won’t See On The Gridiron

     Geez. Not yet six AM and the day has already become strange. I just found myself explaining “sync idle” to the C.S.O. (Never mind why.) But let’s get to the most recent burr under my saddle, shall we?      Surely you’re familiar with the sojourn of nine-year-old Kansas City Chiefs fan Holden Armenta. Some …

The Infuriators

     Viktor Orban.      Giorgia Meloni.      Geert Wilders.      Javier Milei.      And now, Nayib Bukele:      El Salvadorian President Nayib Bukele has won a landslide victory in the country’s presidential election, earning him a historic second term and underscoring his status as one of the world’s most popular political leaders.      Posting on …

Another Non-Surprise

     That perennial loser “Beto” O’Rourke wants the invasion of Texas to continue unbounded: Abbott is using the Texas Guard to defy a Supreme Court ruling. When Gov. Faubus did this in 1957, Eisenhower federalized the Arkansas Guard to ensure compliance with the law. Biden must follow this example of bold, decisive leadership to end …

Sports Illustrated is done

The entire staff is getting laid off. I used to read SI on a regular basis, both in print and online. But way back in the first Bush administration I noticed the Leftism creeping in. Reporters are notoriously Leftist, and sports reporters are the worst of the lot. There’s a reason that ESPN is so …

Humor And The Great Distribution

     If you’ve kept in touch with sociopolitical trends these past few decades, you’ve surely noticed that the spokesmen of the Left are full of plans for “re-educating” us uncultured barbarians in the Right. There must be something wrong with us not to see things as they do, they “reason,” so once they’ve got sole …

Dismissal Through Diagnosis

     The old rhetorical gambit called argumentum ad hominem is most often deployed by advocates for a shaky proposition. If Smith has a better case for his position, such that the preponderance of the evidence and the logic it supports appear to have won the day, his adversary Jones will be powerfully tempted to “attack …

Mask Droppings

     FORBES was once proud to call itself a “capitalist tool.” That’s some years back now. Today the magazine peddles tendentious twaddle:      Why ‘Doing Your Own Research’ May Make You Believe Fake News      In an age in which misinformation abounds, how do you determine what is real and what is fake? New research …

Missing The Point

     It’s difficult for me to imagine how some people live with their spinelessness:      Carols by Candlelight is the largest annual fundraiser for Vision Australia’s children’s services, which provides support to families and children who are blind or have low vision.      A crowd of 10,000 gathered to enjoy the live broadcast, celebrate the …

The Neglected Front (UPDATED)

     Leftists play a “long game.” To them, no setback is permanent. They keep the pressure up until they get what they want. After that, they defend their gains with unbridled viciousness and pseudo-conservative sentiments such as “it’s here to stay.” Thomas Sowell has delineated their practices in several of his books.      The longest …

Giveaways

     When a man shows you who he is, believe him. – Maya Angelou      Among the great weaknesses of the Right is our powerful desire to believe that our opponents are fundamentally just as decent as we are. There’s actually some rationality behind that assumption. If our opponents are not fundamentally decent – that …

Just How Does Harvard Award Professorships?

     You really have to wonder:      Scientific American, which dates to 1845 and touts itself as “the oldest continuously published magazine in the United States,” recently ran an article arguing that scientists should prioritize “reality” over scientific “rigor.” What would make a publication with a name like this one set empirical evidence at odds …

Pride Crap

     [I’m in a bit of a state just now, for reasons that don’t bear on anything my Gentle Readers would (or should) care about, so have a reprint from January 2017, over at Liberty’s Torch V1.0. After rereading it, I must report that my attitude toward “pride crap” has only hardened and grown more …

I Really Don’t Like To End A Day This Way

     …but events have me boiling with rage yet again. What events, you ask? Why, these events:      Can you believe it? Leftists are furious with this YouTuber – apparently a man who does a lot of philanthropy – for “reinforcing the stereotype that Africa is dependent on handouts.” Great God in heaven! Africa IS …

A Brilliant Insight

     No, not one of mine. Courtesy of Mike Miles:      Let that sink in for just a moment.

The Battle For Your Soul

     What’s that you say? You don’t feel as if you’re being fought over? Well, I’m not one to argue feelz. However, the objective evidence is as plain as a fart. Would you like some? Church music director cleared of assault charge. Where dialogue with “liberals” gets you. Hillary’s “deprogramming” program. A pro-life…bank? This tidbit …

Three Graphics For Our Time

     Shamelessly stolen from The Feral Irishman:      The first two graphics speak softly but firmly. The third one speaks in a voice of thunder.      Way back when, the New Left had a mantra: “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.” Reflect on what you see and hear, here …
