Jump Around! College Football Is Back And Dr. Fauci Can’t Stop It

I’ve been back in the SEC two days, and I’ve already lost track of how many college football references have cropped up in conversation. My college freshman brother, never a particularly big football fan, was checking the score between Florida and Florida Atlantic because, as he informed me, several of his friends were there.

Soccer Legend Carli Lloyd Stands For America In An Era So Few Top Athletes Will

Seeing athletes kneel to support the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has become nearly as ritualistic as playing the national anthem. It now stands out when a player doesn’t kneel, a considerable change from just a few years ago, when players like Colin Kaepernick of the NFL generated controversy through their on-field protests. That’s perhaps what’s most striking about the…

After A Year Of Self-Flagellation, U.S. Olympic Patriotism Is Confused

“Sports is like a war without the killing,” once said Ted Turner, the founder of CNN whose greatest achievement is probably owning the Atlanta Braves. Cheering for your country on the field or in the stadium elicits competitive patriotism, giving nations around the world a chance to trample each other to victory without anybody getting shot.

How Hollywood Turned Captain America Into A Placeless Globalist

Captain America is today one of the most popular superheroes. More importantly, he has been the embodiment of U.S. values and a symbol of American exceptionalism. Marvel Studios wisely decided to put him in the center of its cinematic universe. In 2011, the movie “Captain America: The First Avenger” was released, and it became a starting point for the whole Avengers saga.…

Netflix’s ‘America: The Motion Picture’ Is As Out-Of-Touch As King George III

Imagine a multiverse where fantastic fictionalizations of all American historical figures exist simultaneously. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are childhood friends. Benedict Arnold is a werewolf. Sam Adams is a beer-swilling fraternity president ready to found an army of bros. Thomas Edison is a Chinese woman who veers closer to Tony Stark than the inventor of the lightbulb. Geronimo is…

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. She achieved this rare distinction by choosing to ostentatiously turn…

Far-Left’s Anti-American Reaction To July 4th Proves They’ve Polarized Patriotism

Political polarization has become an encompassing force in American society. Football games, an all-American staple of Sunday afternoons, are now home to displays of political activism. Movies frequently feature overtly political sentiments, and streaming services like Netflix seek to influence our sexual and racial attitudes with borderline pedophilic films like “Cuties” and derisive propaganda like “Dear White People.” The Olympics,…

No, The American Flag Isn’t Racist. It’s A Symbol Of Unity We Need Now More Than Ever

Just in time for Flag Day, New York Times reporter Mara Gay dragged the American flag into the race conversation, calling it “disturbing” to see “dozens of American flags” and instead arguing we must “separate America from whiteness.” The New York Times simply claimed her comments were taken out of context. Gay’s attitude showcases an urgent need to revisit the…
