  • U.S. Currency Goes PC – Harriet Tubman Displaces Old Hickory

    04/27/2016 5:56:25 PM PDT · by massmike · 48 replies ^ | 04/27/2016 | Don Feder
    The Democratic Party is poised to change the name of its annual fundraisers from The Jefferson and Jackson Day Dinners to the Harriet Tubman and the Artist Formerly Known as Prince Day Dinners, where crow will be served to atone for the sins of slavery and misogyny and celebrate the triumph of racial- and gender-identity politics over reality. Not really. But the $20 bill is about to get a pc makeover, with Harriet Tubman, an obscure figure in U.S. history (an escaped slave who aided the Underground Railroad), replacing the 7th president of the United States, a man who gave...
  • The War On Christmas Is A War On America

    The cover of the December 1970 issue of the National Lampoon showed a Chinese fighter pilot shooting down Santa's sleigh. As St. Nick tumbles from the sky, the pilot growls: "Eat Death, bloated lackey of the capitalist toy mongers!" In 1970, the war on Christmas was just a gleam in the eye of an ACLU lawyer. Today, it's everywhere. 'Tis the season to pretend there's no reason for the season – that Ramadan, Kwanza and Diwali are just as important to the American people as mistletoe and holly. The Wittensville, Kentucky school district announced that, based on a single complaint,...
  • Conservative Columnist: We Need 'Muslim Control, Not Gun Control (Don Feder)

    Long-time conservative columnist and author Don Feder remarked Friday that perhaps what the United States needs is not more gun control, but "Muslim control." "Instead of targeting gun owners, try to imagine [President] Obama saying that San Bernardino shows the need for 'bi-partisan support for Muslim control'," said Feder. "After it stopped foaming at the mouth, the Committee on American Islamic Relations would have called it racist and paranoid, and not at all nice," he continued. "The suggestion would have been condemned by every Democratic presidential candidate. And the Norwegian Nobel Committee would have taken back Obama's Peace Prize." Feder...

    A Russian lawmaker known for her outspoken support for traditional marriage and the unborn is among the officials listed in new U.S. sanctions against individuals for their alleged contribution to Russia’s unlawful grab of Ukrainian territory. Weeks ago, President Obama announced sanctions aimed at several individuals for their alleged roles in facilitating Russia’s actions. But Yelena Mizulina’s seems out of place on the list. Mizulina is chairwoman of the Russian Duma’s Committee on Family, Women and Children’s Affairs. She was also the lead sponsor of legislation banning Americans from adopting Russian orphans, fearing the children could suffer harm if adopted...

    Does anyone really believe that low-level functionaries in a field office would devise a scheme so far-reaching, insidious and risky? I would submit to you, ladies and gentlemen, that this administration knew exactly what it was doing when it put Lois Lerner in charge of tax-exempt organizations at the IRS. Based on past performance, it knew she’d do everything in her considerable power to sabotage the conservative movement and Tea Parties going into the 2012 election. There didn’t have to be a direct order. Still, the president set the tone for this extraordinary abuse of power. It is an astounding...

    The latest excuse for the establishment to hate the National Rifle Association is a 35-second spot the group aired calling President Obama “an elitist hypocrite” (must they state the obvious?) for opposing its proposal to put cops in schools. “The NRA has struck an incredible new low in public discourse and the ad must be removed immediately,” wailed the well-named Michael Nutter, mayor of Philadelphia. Former White House flack Robert Gibbs called it “disgusting on so many levels.” His successor, Jay Carney, said it was “repugnant and cowardly.” “The NRA’s sneering references to the president’s family are beyond the pale,”...
  • FRC Shooting Latest Chapter In The Left’s Love Affair With Violence

    08/20/2012 8:07:28 PM PDT · by massmike · 5 replies ^ | 08/20/2012 | Don Feder
    The FRC shooting is the latest chapter in the blood-drenched history of the left — from the French Revolution to Occupy Wall Street. This is the way the left does business — with guillotines, gulags and gas chambers, with bombs, bullets, purges, planned famines and demonizing opponents as a prelude to their slaughter. In 2009, James Pouillon was shot to death while holding a pro-life sign by a supporter of choice. The same year, black Tea Party activist Kenneth Glandney was beaten so badly by SEIU thugs that he had to be hospitalized. In 2010, heavily armed eco-terrorist James J....

    The night they drove old Hosni down — and all the neo-cons were singing. Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol was the kapellmeister. Prior to the exit of Beast Mubarak, Kristol (in yet another of his Olympian pronouncements), thundered: “The United States must support the Egyptian awakening, and has a paramount moral and strategic interest in real democracy in Egypt and freedom for the Egyptian people. The question is how the U.S. government can do its best to help the awakening turn out well.”How do we know neo-cons aren’t really conservatives? Conservatives are realists. They confront reality without ideological blinders. They...

    Memo to conservative defeatists: Surrender on gay marriage is surrender on marriage – which is surrender on the family and, ultimately, surrender on civilization. Last Saturday, Glenn Beck held his Restoring Honor rally in Washington, D.C. An estimated 300,000 to half a million people came from all over the country. The Fox News host made the event an interfaith revival. "America today begins to turn back to God," Beck declared. But while America turns back to God, Beck turns his back on God's law. Hey, that's catchy! A guest on the "O'Reilly Factor" in early August, Beck was asked, "Do...

    Of all the sins of the campus left, the worst is hypocrisy. Academic freedom is a spigot they turn on and off at their convenience. This evening, Ray Luc Levasseur, a convicted terrorist who served 18 years of a 45-year sentence, will participate in a "Colloquium on Social Change" at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, sponsored by a "progressive" faculty group called "Social Thought and Political Economy." Levasseur was the leader of the United Freedom Front, which worked for social change from 1976 to 1984 by bombing government buildings, robbing banks, murdering a New Jersey state trooper, and attempting...

    Seven Reasons for Leftist Anti-Semitism By: Don Feder | Wednesday, July 01, 2009 Old joke: Walking down a street, a rabbi is accosted by an anti-Semite who tells him “The Jews are to blame for all of our problems.” The rabbi replies, “You’re absolutely right. It’s all the fault of the Jews – and the redheads.” Puzzled, the anti-Semite asks, “Why the redheads”? The rabbi responds, “Why the Jews”? But for the left, anti-Semitism makes perfect sense – almost as much sense as socialized medicine. Except for Islam (with which it’s increasingly allied), the left has a near-monopoly on...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | May 28, 2009 | Don Feder
    It was a foregone conclusion that The New York Times would love Judge Sonia Sotomayor, Obama’s Supreme Court nominee. A long-time practitioner of identity politics, the paper is fixated on race, gender and class. With Sotomayor, it has a nominee who satisfies all three. In yesterday’s editorial, The Times trilled, “It’s impossible not to be moved by Judge Sotomayor’s story — born in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents and brought up in a city housing project.” The left believes quotas should even be applied to seats on the Supreme Court. At last, we have an Hispanic nominee — hooray,...

    In reporting on the contretemps between former Vice President Dick Cheney and Colin Powell, The New York Times continues its longstanding agenda to get the Republican Party to move to the left. In yesterday’s paper, The Times reported on Powell’s Sunday appearance on “Face The Nation,” where the former Secretary of State boldly declared “I am still a Republican” (despite having endorsed Barack Obama) and called for an “after-action review” of GOP losses in the last election. “Mr. Powell’s appearance underlined an extraordinary public struggle among Republicans over the future of the party,” The Times informed us in the hushed...

    It was predictable that The New York Times would take one of two approaches to the nationwide Tax Day Tea Parties on April 15 — ignore them completely or downplay them. It chose the latter. In a story yesterday, it tried to portray the phenomenon as a partisan project, driven by conservative personalities at FOX and CNBC. In reality, it was grassroots groups like American Family Association that had more to do with the largest anti-tax protests in U.S. history. The Times listed a few of the smaller rallies, to make the Tea Parties seem piddling — “200 rain-soaked participants”...

    The we-do-not-consider-ourselves-a-Christian-nation line in Obama's speech to the Turkish parliament reminds me of an old joke: The Lone Ranger and Tonto are surrounded by hostile Indians. The masked man turns to his faithful companion and asks: "What are we going to do now, Tonto?" His sidekick replies: "What you mean we, pale face?" Like others on the left, Obama has an unfortunate habit of projecting his delusions onto the American people. He was in Turkey as part of his recently concluded America-sucks tour, during which he pandered shamelessly to Euro Anti-Americanism. ("We've been arrogant and we promise not to torture...

    On March 11, I joined a growing fraternity – conservatives who’ve been prevented from speaking on college campuses. Student storm troopers have become the final arbiters of who may speak and what views may be expressed in academia – once dedicated to free inquiry and open discussion, now as intellectually open as a Stalinist gulag. The academic archipelago? I was invited by the University of Massachusetts at Amherst Republicans and Young America’s Foundation to speak on hate crimes laws as a threat to free speech and religious freedom. That there is a national epidemic of hate crimes incited by hate...

    Both sides wanted controversy, and both sides got it. In the Cape Cod Lounge Wednesday night, conservative pundit Don Feder took the podium after University of Massachusetts Republican Club president Greg Collins introduced him to a swarm of boos. The event devolved from there. Shortly before the speech began, a large group of protesters carrying “anti-hate” signs assembled and filed into the room, where they were met at the door by UMass police. From the start, the protesters made their voices heard. “There’s absolutely no room for hate speech on this campus,” said winter 2008 graduate Natalia Tylim. Her friend,...

    In her new book, Guilty: Liberal ‘Victims’ and Their Assault on America — ironically, currently #2 on The New York Times Best Sellers List — Ann Coulter excoriates America’s newspaper of wretched. Here are a few of her disclosures: * “On October 15, 2008, the Obama campaign’s internal pre-debate talking points were inadvertently released to the media.” On the same day, The New York Times ran a story in its politics blog, “The Caucus,” that bore striking similarities to the Obama memo. For instance, both predicted that McCain would bring up Obama’s ties to ex-terrorist William Ayers. The Times essentially...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | December 15, 2008 | Don Feder
    An article in yesterday’s New York Times by Public Editor Clark Hoyt, “Separating the Terror and the Terrorists,” is a nauseating example of the paper’s moral relativism applied to the war on terrorism. Hoyt tries to rationalize The Times’ reluctance to apply the “terrorist” label to people who take hostages, blow up bystanders and shoot 5-year-old girls in their beds. Hoyt admits “The Times is sparing in its use of ‘terrorist’” when reporting on Palestinian atrocities. In an effort to be even-handed, the paper has decided to call the murder of Jews inside the 1948 boundaries of Israel “terrorist,” but...

    In its relentless drive to secularize our society, The New York Times continues to distort the First Amendment. An editorial in today’s paper notes that the Supreme Court is hearing arguments involving Pleasant Grove City, Utah, which has a Ten Commandments monument in a public park but refuses to allow a cult called Summum to erect its own memorial. Because the City “elevated one religion, traditional Christianity, over another, Summum,” it violated the First Amendment’s prohibition against an Establishment of Religion, The Times maintains. “The founders regarded this sort of religious preference as so odious that they included a specific...
