Either they are idiots, or they think we are. Probably both. That…

Media Fawn Over Teen Activists As Long As They Boost The Left

Leftist corporate media really likes student activists. Well, some student activists. The Washington Post’s feature on Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s youth summit in Houston last month was decidedly derogatory towards young conservatives sporting their “Socialism Distancing” T-shirts. WaPo mocked the event as “pro-lasers and pro-fog machines” and contrasted youthful attendees with the selfless, hard-working nurses staying at the same hotel sent…

Leftist’s Racist Outrage Treadmill Revs Up Over Tucker Carlson Noticing Open Borders

In a 1994 New York Times op-ed, the famed linguist Steven Pinker introduced the “euphemism treadmill,” the idea that as much as we keep replacing more benign-sounding terms for those that have acquired a negative valence, ultimately, “concepts, not words, are in charge,” so when we “give a concept a new name, … the name becomes colored by” our underlying…

Is It Any Surprise That A Military That Believes America Is ‘Evil’ Botched The Mission In Afghanistan?

If America is as innately evil as some of our educators and “anti-racism” trainers say it is, then what business do we have being in Afghanistan, or anywhere else, for that matter? A nation that preaches these things flirts with the type of debacle we are seeing in Afghanistan. Maybe there is a silver lining to the national humiliation that…

Critical Race Theory Aims To Murder The Souls Of White Children

A friend of mine told me a true apocryphal story. He is an old-fashioned “liberal” and a strong advocate of public education. The Covid-19 lockdowns left him additional time to inconspicuously sit in on his sixth-grade son’s online classes. One afternoon, he observed an assignment in an English class in which all the white students were required to place their arms…

What Critical Race Apologists Get Wrong About Laws Banning Racism In Classrooms

According to an Education Week analysis, by mid-summer more than half of states had taken some measure to regulate teaching about race in public schools. Although often implicit, the rise of critical race theory has been the guiding concern. Yet the laws differ significantly in purpose and scope. Idaho’s statute (H.B. 377), for example, only prohibits compelled speech, not the…

It’s Not Enough To Fight Critical Race Theory In Schools. We Must Replace It With Excellence
