Armed Leftists Block traffic and Threaten Drivers

by: Brent Smith

Well, no matter what your current situation is, it could be worse.

You could live in Portland, Oregon, which is beginning to make Benghazi look like Disney World. And Benghazi at least had some good guys willing to fight. Where are the Portland police? Oh that’s right – they’re likely told to stand down or stand-by while dirtbag leftists with weapons block cars and threaten drivers.

The armed leftists – there’s an oxymoron for you – were apparently out “protesting” a legitimate police shooting of an armed thug, Patrick Kimmons, from 2018 – three years ago! What took them so long? read more

Video Podcast – Teacher gets canned for not Kowtowing to the Radicals

There’s a private school, K through 12, in Manhattan, New York City, called the Grace Church School. As you’ll see in a moment, that name is an oxymoron.

It costs $57,000 a year to attend.

It’s gotten some press recently as Paul Rossi, a math teacher, was let go, his contract was not renewed. Or as the school says, he “was relieved of his teaching duties.”

Why you ask?

Well because he took issue with their new curriculum that now includes a 12 page “language inclusive” guide, and the addition of “critical race theory.” read more

It Seems Conservative Students Can’t have an Opinion

by: Brent Smith

At the end of the following Blaze article, there is a video. I encourage you to watch, but with this preemptive warning. Make darn certain your head is tightly duct taped, as the potential for it to explode is far greater than 50 percent.

As Glenn Beck says, it won’t keep your head from exploding. It will just better retain the skull fragments so that a surgeon, or all the kings horses and men, can reset them in proper order. read more

Not Even Exercise is Safe from Wokeness

by: Brent Smith

I don’t do yoga – never have.

The closest I got was to take a group work-out-like class to help a friend. It was basically me and bunch of women. Talk about feeling like a fish out of water.

But I do know one thing. When I was taking part in the class, I sure wish we could have injected a political discussion or two as we were in our plank position. Thank would have been great.

The Big 6 are limiting Free Speech

by: Brent Smith

Technology has proven to be a very worrisome double edged sword. On one hand, it has never been easier to disseminate your views and opinion.

You can self-publish an entire book for next to nothing, start your own news, opinion or entertainment website. You are able to “go live” on the internet whenever the spirit moves you.

But on the other hand, if your news, opinion or entertainment is somehow displeasing to the corporation providing you the platform, the corporation, not the government, is who you have to fear from them shutting you down.

It is a strange time we live in that we have to fear both the power of the government and so-called private industry. But which is to be feared most?

from the Federalist:

Is Big Business Now A Greater Threat To Free Speech Than Government?

As I wrote in a preceding essay, the First Amendment was written to limit the government’s power. In the 18th century, only the state was conceived as possibly wielding the power to keep free people from speaking their minds. Thus, if maintaining a free people requires free speech, it followed that the government must be kept from controlling speech. For a long time, no more was necessary, but that would change.

As the United States grew in population and prosperity, there was very little agitation against business. There did not need to be. Most businesses were small affairs, owned by one man or one family, employing a handful of workers. Relations between labor and management were dealt with between individuals.

In 1854, Abraham Lincoln summarized this small-scale economy, speaking of a system in which a man “may look forward and hope to be a hired laborer this year and the next, work for himself afterward, and finally to hire men to work for him! That is the true system.”

Yet as corporations grew in size and power, that “true system” changed. Instead of one apprentice negotiating with an owner, a company that employed thousands would tell workers what they would get: take it or leave it.

In response, workers began to join together in trade unions, leveling the playing field, although diminishing their own independence. The balance between workers and management was restored, but the growing power of corporations still overpowered that of individual consumers.

Antitrust and utility laws were the response, but none of this much affected the realm of free speech. There was no news monopoly — newspapers were more plentiful than today — and restrictions on the new technology of radio came from the government, not the station owners. The biggest threat to the practice of free speech remained the state.

Video Podcast – Officer Nicholas Reardon is a Hero

by: Brent Smith

There have been so many half-truths and outright lies swirling around the justified shooting of 16 year old Ma’Khia Bryant by officer Nicholas Reardon.

And virtually every claim of the incident by the left has been proved to either just be wrong, misinformed or malicious lies, purposely put forth to advance an agenda, with little to no regard for human life.

I discuss what happened, and thankfully for the would-be victim, how it was a textbook reaction by the police officer. read more

They Want to Abolish Police – Let’s Give them What they Want

by: Brent Smith

Are we living in bizarro opposite world or something. A world where the citizens of Columbus, Ohio can actually demand the abolition of police just for doing their job?

The officer who heroically shot the teen thug would appeared to be readying herself to stab another was amazing, having to assess the situation and then act decisively in only seconds. read more

Understanding and Battling Critical Race Theory

from Christopher F. Rufo for Hillsdale College:

Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It

Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula. read more

Leftist Hypocrite Doesn’t Want Security for Us

It’s hard to say which radical leftist political hack is the dumbest of them all. Or maybe they’re not as stupid as they act and sound, but instead try to act so woke that it just seems this way.

I might think this of some democrats, especially the older ones – the Schumers and Pelosis. Neither of them are as dimwitted as they sound, but they’re forced to bend themselves into pretzels to remain viable to the new crop of leftist democrats, some of whom really just stupid and angry. read more

God Won’t Help You Hate Anyone!

by: Brent Smith

According to a number sources on the interweb, including her own website, the subject of the following Blaze article is a “Psychologist, Professor and Preacher – Healing the legacies of racial and gender oppression.”

Now I’ve met a number of ministers, priests, monks and preachers in my time. And not one has shared that he has prayed to God to help “hate” anyone. read more
