Mother’s Little Helper?

A major part of the progressive mindset is the notion of a linear path of history (one might call it a “progression”). This is essentially the belief that all things today are better than all things in the past, and all things in the future will be better than all things today. Since things today are supposed to be good, this belief engenders a demonization of the past when problems inevitably arise in the present, as they tend to do in all ages. It’s not very difficult to find examples of this phenomenon in the cultures of various far-left regimes that profess to be leading the way into a glorious future (in contrast, far right regimes tend to be more about reviving an idealized past, but that’s a different issue)–The Chinese Cultural Revolution and the various intellectual purges of the Soviet Union are good examples of the nation’s history and culture being destroyed, in many cases literally.

The Ultimate Rebuttal To Feminism?

Last month, famous feminist Youtuber Laci Green caused something of an outrage amongst her fanbase when she began associating with fellow internet personality Chris Ray Gun. Mr. Ray Gun is not only a man, but a man who holds double-plus ungood political opinions. He has even been accused of being a member of that most loathsome of political ideologies: the alt-right. For the record, Mr. Ray Gun has never actually referred to himself as being a Richard Spencer devotee, and has criticized white nationalism, but some of his output does show that his politics lean more or less in the direction of the reactosphere. While in this relationship with this man, Ms. Green’s politics seem to have shifted with her becoming more open to conversing with those of the “red pill” persuasion, and tepidly accepting some (not all) of their viewpoints. This is what her former fans are so angry about. She may have not only engaged in a sexual relationship with this awful man, but she actually may… Keep Reading

No, Professor Gellers, Not All Conservatives At #YWLS2016 Are White

This week, Turning Points USA (TPUSA) brought over 400 conservative activists to Dallas, Texas for the 2nd annual Young Women’s Leadership Summit. The summit hosts high school and college students from 42 states, training conservatives to identify, empower, and organize for free markets and limited government. TPUSA has been one of the leading organizations for conservative activists. They have a strong social media presence and do extraordinary outreach to students. It’s hard to be a conservative on twitter without seeing fellow ladies of liberty using the hashtag #YWLS and #YWLS2016. Thousands of tweets have been sent out using these hashtags, mostly young women excited to be immersed in conservative ideas. But one liberal professor, Josh Gellers, from the University of North Florida,  joined the conversation as well:   As conservatives, we are constantly defying stereotypes thrust upon us by the left.  Geller’s assumption that the Young Women’s Leadership Summit is a safe space for white women couldn’t be further from the truth. Not only does the conservative movement attract… Keep Reading
