Poor, Disadvantaged Mara Gay sees the American Flag as Disturbing

by: Brent Smith:

Okay – let’s see if I’ve got this straight. A black woman, an American citizen, appears to believe that Old Glory, the American flag, is synonymous with one thing – whiteness. And of course we know what “whiteness” means – racism, naturally.

This = Whiteness?

Now let’s just say, for argument sake, that Mara Gay, the aforementioned black woman, grew up in the projects, felt oppressed by the system and knew nothing but despair her entire life. Maybe, just maybe, I can see how she may feel this way. But this isn’t Mara Gay. read more

Cancel Culture has Progressed to Self-Cancellation

The following is just painful to read, as cancel culture appears to have a virtual stranglehold on higher education.

And worse, academics, who are supposed to be the ‘smart’ people, are now canceling themselves. White guilt has become ridiculous and laughable.

As you read this, remind yourself of what the author, Jonathan Turley points out – that the Spanish language, like French, English, German, Portuguese, etc., are all European languages. By the logic of the self-cancelers, should then anyone south of our border NOT be speaking Spanish or Portuguese? read more

Another State Steps Up Against Critical Race Theory

Imagine where we’d be without States Rights in this country.

Imagine if the many Red States throughout America didn’t have the Constitutional authority to control their own States – didn’t have the authority to disregard the out-of-control leftist federal government.

Thank Heavens we don’t have to, because the short answer is we would be toast. But there are a number of conservative legislatures and Governors who are make a real difference and preserving the America we know and love. And just as importantly, pushing back against leftist insanity. read more

Who Else would Trained Marxists side With

Let’s just chalk this one up in the who didn’t see this coming category. Or perhaps in the Birds-of-a-feather category. Or maybe the Dark Minds think alike category. Whichever you choose, it is certainly a match made in hell.

And dig the old Francis Fox-Piven radical wannabes pictured below.

And one more thing about the photo – “Free Palestine” … from who? Last I checked, Israel doesn’t control or run the Palestinian territories – truth be known, Jordan is actually “Palestine,” not Israel.

But regardless, I was stunned when I read this news. And by stunned, I mean, Not at All. read more

White Guy Hired – Black Guy isn’t – Must be Racism

by: Brent Smith

Oh, here we go again. The white guy gets hired in the National Football League before the black athlete.

I mean, how often have we seen that? All the time, right? How about almost never. But because it’s happening this time, it must be racism.

That’s the only answer. It’s systemic, automatic, systematic, emblematic, enigmatic, rythmatic, aerobatic – oh sorry. Got carried away – thought I was part of the Jackson Five singing, “Dancin Machine.” But I can’t really do that because that would cultural appropriation. Whitey just can’t win. read more

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.
