HuffPo implies that Bari Weiss and Dave Rubin are “fancy racists”

Racism is the mot du jour for Authoritarian Leftists. Do you want to tar someone you don’t like? Just call them a “racist,” even if there’s no evidence they are bigots. No matter if they’re just conservatives or even moderates—”racist” will do in place of “Republican”, “libertarian,” or even “moderate Democrat.” Read and weep as the […]

Old white male professors to be fixed by woke “reverse mentors”

This article is from the Torygraph, and I’ll assume the report is accurate, though you won’t find it discussed at any Left-wing websites. Click on the screenshot below to see the piece. The new policy: Male, pale and stale university professors are to be given “reverse mentors” to teach them about unconscious bias, under a […]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Another lionized Democrat cozying up to anti-Semites

Well, my headline may be a tad exaggerated, but I’m pretty sure that the subject of this post is not friendly to Jews (she’s made some remarkably ill informed comments about Palestine). Read on. Many Democrats have been excited about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for the young Hispanic activist (she’s 28) won the Democratic primary for a […]

The last word on the racism, misandry, and police-hating from Sarah Jeong

Well, the New York Times is standing by its hiring of Sarah Jeong as its head tech writer. Jeong’s repugnant character was revealed in a bunch of anti-white tweets—tweets ardently defended by Leftists (see also here) who pretended that they weren’t racist because, of course, privileged Asian women, even if they went to Harvard, can’t be […]

Antifas in statu nascendi: Portland high school students denigrate free speech as “legitimizing hate”

Stuff like these letters—particularly the last one—make me despair of the future. Fortunately, I’ll be dead when my Left has been completely co-opted by intolerant Social Justice Warriors. Reader Gary sent me three links to letters in The Oregonian (the local daily paper) by students from Grant High School in Portland, Oregon. (Portland, of course, […]

The Nation grovels to the mob, abasing itself by apologizing for a poem it published

On July 5, The Nation published a poem called “How-To” by Anders Carlson-Wee, a young white man.  It describes how panhandlers, the homeless, and others asking for money should behave. That behavior, as you can see in the poem, involves using tactics designed to pry money out of people who are reluctant to give some spare […]

NY Times publisher criticizes Trump’s freedom of speech while extolling free speech

I’m quite puzzled, but not all that surprised, by this unusual published statement by New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger. The publisher was invited to the White House for an “off the record” meeting with President Trump. Because Trump tweeted about it, though, Sulzberger rightly considered it now “on the record”, and issued the […]

Trigger warnings said to harm college students, but evidence is thin

“Trigger warnings” are of course cautionary statements given out, usually by college professors, before they present disturbing material to students. The intent is to prevent those who might have been traumatized by that subject or a related one (usually people with PTSD: post-traumatic stress disorder) from being re-traumatized. My view of such warnings is that […]

Portlandia: Charitable food cart forced to close because proprietors try to stay neutral in immigration fracas

According to station KGW8 in Portland, Oregon (the home of Authoritarian Leftism), a food cart whose profits were going to a charity for the homeless was forced to close by Occupy ICE PDX protestors, who repeatedly harassed the food cart’s owners. Read the article by clicking on the screenshot below.  An excerpt: The owners of […]

Manchester University students deface mural containing Kipling poem on grounds that he was a colonialist and racist

According to several sources, including the BBC, the Manchester Evening News and The National, students at Manchester University, which is where Matthew Cobb teaches (he IS NOT TO BLAME) decided to paint over a mural that displayed a poem by Rudyard Kipling, replacing it with a poem by Maya Angelou. The defacing was done by leaders […]
