    I can't help but notice that the nitwits on the left have adopted of late two ridiculous terms to blather against the sane. These terms are "White Privilege" and "Micro Aggression". Both of course are meaningless in any rational way but serve to tickle the pseudointellectual BB brains that like to think that a college education means anything these days. What I would like to do is have a competition of sorts to try and predict what the next popular nitwhittery from the left will be so we can get out ahead of it and begin the mocking of it...

    Last week, it was revealed that between 1997 and 2013, at least 1,400 girls -- in just one relatively small English city (Rotherham, population 275,000) had been raped by gangs of men over the past decade. As summarized in a British government inquiry: "It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated. There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made...

There’s just one snag: a local Muslim resident wasn’t happy about it and got the bistro to take it down... One Muslim woman complained on a public forum that she took offense at the sign. The owners of the bistro ended up reaching out to her. They apologized and took the sign down, saying they didn’t mean to offend anyone with their bacon celebration. The bistro tweeted out a link to an...

    Family Security Matters ^ | November 11, 2013 | PETER FARMER
    During the years 1934-1939, Soviet dictator and Communist Party General Chairman Josef Stalin ordered what later became known to history as the "Great Purge" - a period of brutal political repression, torture, imprisonment and mass murder in the Soviet Union. Launched under the auspices of purifying the Communist Party of ideologically-unreliable elements and rooting out fifth columnists within its ranks, the purges focused initially on party leadership. However - fueled by Stalin's paranoia - they soon expanded into the military, government bureaucracy and wider Soviet society. Members of the intelligentsia, senior government bureaucrats (nomenklatura), professionals, land-owning farmers (kulaks), members of...

A police K9 team conducted a search of the area which terminated in the area of Bedford Street, police said. No one was injured during the incident. The victims told police the robbers were wearing dark jeans and dark, zipped up hooded jackets.

Council members voted 4-1 Tuesday night to hire Michael Gennaco, chief attorney for the Los Angeles County Office of Independent Review, at upwards of $230 an hour. Gennaco said he would immediately begin his investigation into the entire department -- not just Thomas' death -- to see if there's any corruption. The decision came after a heated meeting involving enraged community members who booed, heckled and...

Who could be against such a law? Nevertheless, as so many other efforts to help specific groups, Title IX’s “help” has morphed into a grotesque perversion of its intended purpose. The law of unintended consequences has joined forces with extreme political correctness to produce a monster which is devouring men’s sports teams at colleges across the country.

While real-life recession and terrorism aren’t likely to meet any tidy resolutions soon, we can always count on Batman to solve the Riddler’s latest puzzle just in time, or Spider-Man to save the damsel in distress (well, usually). Somewhere along the line, though, it was decided that our heroes had to grapple with real-world issues. When done sparingly and handled well, this can elevate the genre, such as Harry Osborn's battle with drugs or 2008’s brilliant The Dark Knight. But...

A listener to radio station CHOZ-FM in St. John's complained last year that the song includes the word “faggot” in its lyrics and is discriminatory to gays.

Halloween spending has risen to nearly $5 billion annually -- not bad for a non-gift-giving, non-government-sanctioned holiday. And more adults than ever are dressing up.

    Lot’s have been said about how divided and “angry” America is these days. But has anyone really asked: why? The answer is rather simple: years of pure political cowardice in actually governing reality. There is a truth in saying that the division that now roils the nation is the by-product of that freakish time known as the 1960s. Arguably, it was during this time that the great division between competing American visions was sewn. But it is also a convenient argument to make this snapshot of history the political and cultural scapegoat for what came after. There is no need...

Put simply, I use provocative language in chapters (more often in columns) criticizing a small minority of my fellow professors for two reasons: 1) because they are proponents of...

    Where does all this stuff that you�ve heard about this morning � the victim feminism, the gay rights movement, the invented statistics, the rewritten history, the lies, the demands, all the rest of it � where does it come from? For the first time in our history, Americans have to be fearful of what they say, of what they write, and of what they think. They have to be afraid of using the wrong word, a word denounced as offensive or insensitive, or racist, sexist, or homophobic. We have seen other countries, particularly in this century, where this has been...

    PD James: Political correctness ruining society Last Updated: 2:57AM BST 02/05/2008Police hampered by a 'culture of blame' says PD james Modern life is bedevilled by political correctness, PD James, the crime author, said last night. There was a growing risk that Britons would live in "ghettos" and experience little contact with other people, she said in a speech on policing in the 21st century. Baroness James of Holland Park, who is best known for creating the detective Adam Dalgliesh, told an audience in the Palace of Westminster: "Our society is now more fractured than I, in my long life, have...
  • The American Tea party

    Folks, it is time that we every day Americans say, “enough” to the trashing of everything we hold dear. America needs an American Tea Party, a rally in Washington DC protesting political correctness and the far left movement of our country. Most of us want to say, “Merry Christmas!” Most of us know speaking English is best for all Americans. Most of us are not offended by public prayer. Most of us know partial birth abortion is murder. While I have dear homosexual friends, most of us believe marriage should remain between a man and a woman. Most of us...

    The Uncommon Sense Blog ^ | 3/15/08 | Dan Taylor
    My bias in this blog is a whole hearted belief in the genius of the First Amendment to the Constitution which, for those of you who missed Government Class, deals with the inability of the Congress to dictate what we can believe in the form of establishing a state religion and in the sanctity of individual speech no matter how unpleasant it might be. The reason the drafters of the Constitution protected speech, press, and religious choice in the first amendment is that when those are gone the others don't really matter. Political correctness is a way of dividing and...

    A Detroit-based group is calling for a national protest early next month after a meeting with Isabella County Prosecutor Larry Burdick regarding nooses found in a Central Michigan University classroom. The Rev. Charles Williams II, leader of the National Council for Community Empowerment, also demanded Monday that Burdick take legal action immediately against the student who said he hung the nooses on Central Michigan University's campus. Williams said in a press release that his organization requested a meeting with Burdick and that the group “has yet to receive return correspondence.” Williams staged a press conference in front of the Isabella...

    Intro by ML/NJ: You have to know that it is traditional to sing the "Good Old Song" after the Virginia football team scores (and other times too). Huge sections of the stadium link arms and sing to the tune of Auld Lang Syne The song includes the following couplet: We come from old Vir-gin-i-a Where all is bright and gay For a decade or more it has been common for many to insert the words "Not Gay!" following this couplet. This has had the enforcers of Political Correctness beside themselves. There are regular campaigns to humiliate the not-gayers, and so...

    ...In 2005, Emily Brooker, a social-work student at Missouri State University, was enrolled in a class taught by a professor who advertised himself as a liberal and insisted that social work is a liberal profession. At first, a mandatory assignment for his class was to advocate homosexual foster homes and adoption, with all students required to sign an advocacy letter, on university stationery, to the state legislature. When Brooker objected on religious grounds, the project was made optional. But shortly before the final exam she was charged with a "Level 3," the most serious, violation of professional standards. In a...

    You won't be hearing these notes played at Henry M. Jackson High School in Everett, Washington. According to Federal Court Judge Robert Lasnik, Chief Judge of the Western District of Washington, students setting their fingers to keyboard while following these notes are breaking the law, and he has ordered them to stop. Judge Lasnik, appointed to the bench by President Clinton in 1998, found these particular notes—without any lyrics—are so offensive that he upheld the order by the school district's associate superintendent that the school's wind ensemble not be allowed to perform the music. *** "(A)ll of us just picked...
