Like so many others, I tune into Fox news because it is literally the only cable alternative to a constant barrage of leftism. Sure, I tune in to get real news stories without a leftist spin, but more, I watch for the conservative commentary programs.

Now, between the ouster of Roger Ailes and the O’Reilly harassment accusations, I’d say Fox News has a bit of a problem. Certainly it is not insurmountable, but I’m sure it’s a concern for the execs at Fox.

And now that there appears to be blood in the water, the leftist sharks are circling O’Reilly and Fox, preparing for a feeding frenzy. One thing we should all know about the left – when they sense a problem on the right, they attack and don’t let go until their prey is vanquished. They never give up and never surrender (h/t: Galaxy Quest).

And the attacks on O’Reilly have begun. Salon.com posted a piece entitled “The no-ad zone: ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ may be tops on cable TV, but Bill O’Reilly is turning off advertisers.” read more

Whites Justify Police Brutality

Toya Graham is not a hero. She’s a mom. She’s a parent who apparently cares about the safety and growth of her son. Yet many have labeled their hero for caring enough to run after the sun she recognized by the pants he was wearing – slap him around and drag him home.

So why have some labeled her a hero mom? Well, a hero is unusual – defined as a person of distinguished courage, bravery and one of noble quality. I frankly don’t know if she possesses any of these qualities. So although not a hero, in my opinion, Toya appears heroic because in this wusified day and age, her actions are indeed unusual, appearing courageous, and in fact frowned upon by most in today’s society. So much that it has caused consternation among those in the liberal media. And for conservatives, any action that causes the lefts panties to bunch is usually considered courageous, even heroic.

One example of bunched panties is Joan Walsh of Salon.com who writes: “Baltimore’s hero mom has a name. It’s Toya Graham. And the woman lionized nationwide for beating her 16-year-old son on camera, and dragging him away from Monday night’s riots, doesn’t feel at all like hero.”

Graham did admit during an interview on CBS This Morning that she “just lost it.” And what the heck is wrong with that? It’s not as if her 16-year-old son simply played hooky from school for the day. He was out in the middle of a potentially dangerous and uncertain situation. Frankly, if the mom didn’t freak out and “lose it” we should all be suspect of her. read more
