Kmele Foster Is Right: Banning Critical Race Theory Isn’t Going To Stop It

On the latest “The Fifth Column” episode, cohost Kmele Foster reiterates his argument, previously expressed in a coauthored New York Times op-ed, that banning critical race theory in schools is bad.

Washington Post Reports On Demonic Energy Behind The Left’s Culture War

A Halloween-themed profile of a “teenage witch” in The Washington Post over the weekend reads surprisingly like a backhanded affirmation of the Bible and Christianity. It openly connects gender dysphoria with occult experimentation, and both with unsupervised young people going deep into social media rabbit warrens. I wrote in July about another profile exploring how TikTok promotes multiple personality disorders…

Spurning The Flag And Anthem Aren’t Protests, They’re Cancellation Attempts

It’s getting so that we can’t go a week without an incident illustrating woke athletes’ contempt for both the national anthem and the American flag. Last week, hammer-thrower Gwen Berry became the most famous person ever to finish third in the U.S. Olympic trials in a relatively obscure field event.

America Has An Existential Civics Education Crisis That More ‘Civics Education’ Will Only Make Worse

As leftists push for greater control of what children learn about American history and how Americans define their civic responsibilities, a majority of Americans support more “civics education,” an interesting new Heritage Foundation survey finds. “[T]wo-thirds of parents and nearly three-quarters of teachers share a strong desire to see greater emphasis on civics education.

Paul Ryan Is Wrong To Diminish The Culture War

Paul Ryan speaks at the Reagan Library. Fast forward to around the 24-minute mark, where he says in part: As the left gets more woke, the rest of America is getting weary. This stuff is exhausting. And we conservatives have got to be careful not to get caught up in every little cultural battle. Sometimes these skirmishes are just creations…
