Letter From England 3: The Puritan Hypothesis In British Politics

Charlie Elphicke is the Conservative Member of Parliament for Dover and Deal. This makes him my Member of Parliament. On Friday the 3rd November 2017, he discovered – via the media, he says, not from any official notification – that he was suspended from the Conservative Party, and that the Police had been asked to investigate him. No reason for this was given. However, Mr Elphicke’s name was on a confidential list, compiled by Central Office, and immediately leaked on social media, of politicians said to be unable to keep their hands to themselves. Nothing more has been said about… Keep Reading

Are The PC Police Now Coming For Halloween?

It’s almost impossible to not offend someone at any given time in modern America. People have become overly sensitive and the rise of political correctness is even targeting holidays. Christmas is being watered down and actively purged from society. Christmas trees are being renamed holiday trees, despite the tree festivity being clearly associated with Christmas. “Merry Christmas” greetings are morphing into “Happy Holidays,” out of fear someone may be offended by a positive greeting that refers to a specific holiday. Now it appears as though Halloween may be the next target for the PC police in our society. Halloween is… Keep Reading

Cultural Marxists Target Classic Literature As Dumbing Down Of Children Accelerates

Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” won a Pulitzer Prize when it was released in 1960, and it is widely considered to be one of the greatest classics of all-time. However, one Mississippi school district is taking an opposing view. They are pulling the novel from their curriculum because it “makes people uncomfortable.” The reasoning behind the decision to censor the book is because it contained the “n word.” Because the book was written decades before political correctness was conceived, it will be banned from being taught for 8th grade English Language Arts and replaced with sanitized literature less likely… Keep Reading

Terror In Antioch, Tennessee: A Politically Inconvenient Crime

While media talking heads and representatives of the NFL are busy prattling on about the “oppression” that blacks supposedly face on a daily basis in America 2017, there has scarcely been a peep about something that occurred just days ago in a little town in Tennessee called Antioch. When Dylan Roof, a young white man, shot up black congregants in a South Carolina church a few years back, there was not only wall-to-wall media coverage, but politicians at the state and federal levels, including the President and then-Governor Nikki Haley, who were quick to weigh in. Because photographs emerged that… Keep Reading

Michael Chabon Chastises Jews Who Support Trump

An enviable quote from Ernest Hemingway was that writers must put their ideology and positions on hold when sitting down at the typewriter. Otherwise, one was violating the craft. Hemingway was referring to a specific genre of writing; that of fiction. But balanced against this was George Orwell, who, with two exceptions, Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, was more an essayist than a novelist. For him, the starting point of any non-fiction piece derived from a sense of outrage: “When I sit down to write…I do not say to myself, ‘I’m going to produce a work of art.’ I write… Keep Reading

University Employs Private Eye To Dig Up Prosecutable Dirt On Conservative Student

When college campus leftists use visual displays, no matter how offensive, to make political points, the administration files this under “protected free speech.” As usual though, a double standard is at work when conservative college students engage in, no matter how mild the presentation, their own form of performance art. With the usual politically correct justification of protecting the feelings of any who might be offended at such displays, college administrations act swiftly and decisively, and more often than not, conservative students are forced to pack up their displays. In the case of Regis University, these efforts to “silence” such… Keep Reading

James Damore Confronts The Hags Of High-Tech (& Loses)

Of the many men who toil in high-tech, few are as heroic as James Damore, the young man who penned the manifesto “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber.” In it, Damore calmly and logically exposed the tyrannical ideological edifice erected to perpetuate the myth that, in aggregate, women and men are identical in aptitude and interests, and that “all disparities in representation are due to oppression.” Despite active recruiting and ample affirmative action, women made up only 14.5 percent and 12.5 percent, respectively, of computer science and electrical engineering graduates, in 2015. While they comprise 21.4 percent of undergraduates enrolled in engineering,… Keep Reading

Reason Magazine Feminazi Threatens Libertarian Youth Activist Over Harmless Joke

Libertarians have typically been known as standing for freedom of expression, but that is going to change if Elizabeth Nolan Brown has her way. The sex-positive Reason contributor, who co-founded Feminists For Liberty with the vehemently anti-libertarian Cathy Reisenwitz, is bringing social justice warrior-style thought policing into the libertarian movement. And for what reason? Because her little feelings were hurt over a silly joke. This whining Feminazi, with stereotypically dyed hair and all, started a pathetic Twitter crusade on Saturday because a Young Americans for Liberty activist made a harmless joke on Twitter about women making sandwiches. Her goal was to… Keep Reading

Professor Has Had Enough Of Political Correctness

A Columbia professor is castigating one of the academic left’s most cherished concepts: that of “white privilege,” according to The Atlantic. In a period where professors and minority students wield this term–designed to create guilt for the so-called “privileged,” to shut down debate–Columbia Professor and African-American John McWhorter appeared at the Aspen Ideas Conference on Thursday to deny the common leftist trope that campuses are repositories of racism; indeed, according to him, “college campuses are perhaps the least racist spots on earth.” Thus “the idea that any [minority] student is undergoing a constant litany of constant racist abuse is… not… Keep Reading

In Canada, Being a Terrorist Can Really Pay Off

Canadian-born Omar Khadr was captured in 2002 while fighting American soldiers with the Taliban in Afghanistan, and later plead guilty to murdering Sergeant First Class Christopher Speer with a grenade before an American military court in 2010. For his crimes, he was enriched by the Canadian government on Jul. 5 in the form of $10.5 million dollars. In addition, the Canadian government is going to apologize to Khadr, but both the reasons for the money and for the apology have not been disclosed, according to The Canadian Press. Not only did Khadr, by his own admission, murder an American soldier… Keep Reading

PC University

Parents who plan on refinancing their homes in order to send their children off to college should instead consider encouraging them to specialize in a trade. Speaking as a Ph.D. in philosophy who has spent the last 17 years teaching at the college level, I’m perhaps the last person from whom advice of this sort is expected. But it is precisely because of my familiarity with academia that I beseech the college bound and their enablers—I mean their supporters—to revisit their plans. Whether one regards a post-secondary institution as a means to either a remunerative profession or a genuine education,… Keep Reading

Marty, The Flag… It’s Disappearing! — Political Correctness Run a Muck In Pennsylvania

Democrats in Pennsylvania are trying to erase history and stifle free speech by stealing then banning a historic flag on display for Flag Day. Since late May, the Hanover Area Historical Society has been displaying The Clausen Historic Flag Collection in the Pennsylvania State Capitol to celebrate Flag Day. This exhibit features 50 handmade flags from different points in North American history. Historic flags in the exhibit cover a vast range of history. Flags can be seen from the beginning of North American settlement with the Viking Ravens Flag and Christopher Columbus Flag, to more modern flags such as the Territory of Alaska’s flag and… Keep Reading
