    At first blush, one might think most of these battles are only being waged in the private sphere, but don’t be naïve. As we have seen with the IRS scandal, the government is clearly targeting individuals for their views or conscience -- auditing them simply because of the political groups they have supported or denying conservative organizations a certain tax status simply because they are conservative. It’s the other side of the same coin.
  • Whit Stillman breaks Hollywood taboo, says he was ‘blacklisted’ from directing TV

    Whit Stillman doesn’t want to talk about politics. Ask the famed indie film director for his thoughts about the current Republican primary race, and he politely — but flatly — declines. “No, I have nothing,” he says. Lightly pressed further, he changes the subject, turning the tables to ask questions of his own. -snip- Mr. Stillman’s previous films — “Metropolitan,” “Barcelona” and “The Last Days of Disco” — made up a trilogy of comic coming-of-age stories set amid the complexities and unspoken social formalities of the upper class. -snip- Mr. Stillman wasn’t always so evasive when it came to political...

    PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, June 1, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Philadelphia City Council voted yesterday to end a nearly 80-year-old lease held by the Boy Scouts local branch over the group's adherence to a national policy banning actively homosexual leaders. The ongoing dispute pitted the Scouts' Cradle of Liberty Council against homosexual activists over the organization's refusal to adopt an official policy welcoming homosexuals into leadership. The City, under pressure by activist groups, wants the Scouts to either alter the organization's policy or start paying market rent for the use of the historical Beaux Arts building, where the Scout headquarters has been...

    On Sunday, Sept. 28, Rush Limbaugh volunteered on ESPN's "Sunday NFL Countdown" that Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback Donovan McNabb was "overrated" and that sports writers cut him slack because he is black. Three days later, Rush resigned as an ESPN commentator. The size of the posse that pursued him and of the mob that lynched him reveals less about Rush's views on issues of race than it does about the malice of our media elite. Let's review Rush's offending words in their entirety. After saying McNabb was overrated, Rush gave the following as the reason why sportswriters consistently praise McNabb beyond...

    Blacklisting the Boy Scouts By: Mark Pulliam The Boy Scouts of America are under attack—again—this time from an unlikely source: the organized bar. Notwithstanding the 2000 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in Boy Scouts of America vs. Dale, affirming the constitutional right of the Boy Scouts to exclude avowed homosexuals as adult leaders, the battle is not over. Groups opposed to the traditional values espoused by the Boy Scouts continue their campaign of intimidation and pressure. In California, several local bar associations are seeking to ostracize the Boy Scouts by prohibiting state court judges from participating in the organization...

    Filed at 3:35 p.m. ET LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A ghost is haunting Hollywood -- the specter of the long-abandoned anti-communist blacklist of the 1950s. In a testament to the staying power of the controversial list, the widow of famed liberal film producer Stanley Kramer is thinking of suing the Public Broadcasting Service for a documentary she calls ``a hatchet job'' on her late husband and his relationships with a blacklisted writer of that era. Karen Sharpe Kramer says that the documentary, ``Darkness at High Noon: The Carl Foreman Documents,'' scheduled to air on PBS Sept. 17, defames her husband...
