The Overt Racism of Progressives (#4,239 in a series)

Most of you have probably read some of the opinion pieces by enlightened, professional pundits explaining how President Trump’s speech to the Polish people is full of racist dog whistles. What do these geniuses cite as an example? Why, President Trump mentioned “Symphonies” as something positive, something good.

“Symphonies” is obviously a code word for […]

Wonder Woman: the Rufus Review

First, a disclaimer. I am not a teen-aged girl. I don’t think I have ever read a superhero themed comic from cover to cover (as a kid I looked through a few at friends’ houses, but I don’t recall ever reading one). I don’t like CGI.

With that all out of the way, let’s […]

Money is not the only answer, but it makes a difference - Barack Obama

Ace at ace.mu.nu has written a few posts explaining what secondary boycotts are and why he has changed from advising against them to advocating for them.

I’m not particularly a fan of boycotts as a sort-of political movement, but I’ve never understood why so many folks give their hard-earned money to people who will […]

The Center Cannot Hold

This, https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2017/05/18/this-is-a-coup-against-our-right-to-govern-ourselves-n2328059

is not hyperbole (I’ll quote from his article below my take). This really is a cold civil war. It’s not left against right or progressives against conservatives; it’s our government bureaucracy vs. the citizenry.

Some of you recently wrote about evil characters in movies and television that scared you the most and […]

Albert Does Dusseldorf

Speaking of the coarsening of discourse on television…

One of the Little Fireflies mentioned there was a new series starting on the National Geographic channel, “Genius” and asked if I would DVR it so we could watch it. I did a little research. I’ve read a few biographies of Albert Einstein so I thought […]

You're Not in Kansas Any More, (Christian) Toto!

If you haven’t recently been to Christian Toto’s website, “Hollywood in Toto, I encourage you to take a look, Hollywood in Toto

I think he’s on to something big.

Many of us met at the old, Libertas site. As evidenced by the number of readers and commenters that site had, it obviously filled a […]

Silent Majority vs. Major Whinority

I’m interested in learning what others here think about whether there is a “silent majority,” and, if so, just how major is it? I don’t mean Republican and Democrat, or even Left and Right, I mean the percentage of people who believe in live and let live and mostly want to be left alone […]

Vimeo Killed the Hollywood Star*

*Not a song by The Buggles

Magnus posted a well written piece from “Vanity Fair” where the author expressed an opinion that Hollywood would soon go through a shake up similar to what print journalism and music have gone through for a similar reason; the ubiquity of digital media. JimmyC agrees there is a […]

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.

Let me see if I have the facts correct:

1. DePaul University a Vincentian*, Roman Catholic University founded in 1898 in the United States of America forbids Ben Shapiro from speaking on their campus. 2. DePaul University had security forces meet Mr. Shapiro on the border of their campus, threatening him with arrest if […]
