  • NYT Columnist: Let's Face It, All Republicans Are Just Bad People

    So, after all this talk about dialing down the rhetoric, let’s be clear about something: that’s never, ever going to happen. As long as there is a Democratic Party, it won’t happen. You cannot reason with these people. We said the same thing after the assassination attempt of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ). It didn’t take. Why? It’s because Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, red states and blue states are different. We have different cultural attitudes, different views on patriotism (Democrats hate outward displays of national pride), and DEEP differences on how government should run the country. We...

    A University of Manitoba student says hateful messages posted on campus and sent to at least one fax machine add an "element of fear" to being on school grounds. "I think it's sickening," said Charlene Hallett. "But, on the other side too, I want to roll my eyes and say, "You know what? No, you don't get to try to intimidate us this way.'"  Sheets of paper with the phrase "It's okay to be white" were taped to walls around the U of M campus this week. Faxes with the same phrase were sent to offices around the campus, including the women's and gender studies program. Hallett is...

    FULL TITLE: Bernie Sanders Unleashed: Trump Is the 'Most Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Bigoted President in History' Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) went after President Trump Tuesday while he was campaigning for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (D). He called Trump the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history." Sanders told the crowd that Democratic campaign staffers across the country are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate. Unlike former Vice President Joe Biden, Sanders said earlier this week...
  • SPLC Leads Soros-Funded Groups in 'Orwellian' Attempt to Ban 'Hate Speech' on Social Media

    Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) teamed up with five other groups funded by George Soros to pressure tech companies to "reduce hateful activities on their platforms." While this sounds like a noble goal, mainstream conservative and Christian groups that have fallen afoul of the SPLC warned that these liberal organizations have an "Orwellian" definition of hate that most Americans would disagree with. Worse, social media companies already seem biased against conservatives, and this SPLC campaign would only embolden that bias. https://pjmedia.com/trending/splc-leads-soros-funded-groups-in-orwellian-attempt-to-ban-hate-speech-on-social-media/

    A group of civil rights organizations is pushing technology companies to create policies to more effectively address hate speech and extremist groups. The six organizations, joined by 40 other organizations who echoed the call, wrote in a report that they want the platforms to take more firm stances against racism, sexism, xenophobia, religious bigotry, homophobia and transphobia, and enforce policies against hate speech and extremist groups more strictly. The groups, which include the Center for American Progress, Color Of Change, Free Press, the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the National Hispanic Media Coalition and the Southern Poverty Law...

Thats why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, thats when civility can start again. The remark was quintessentially Clintonian in its brazen arrogance: Well act like adults when you give us our power back. She was roundly condemned for the statement on the right, coming as...

    Intolerance and illiberalism, nakedly defined as abstractions or principles, are seldom if ever outwardly embraced by progressives. None but the most extreme will argue that intolerance and censorship are good things in themselves. Normally the preferred course is more subtle. Instead of openly arresting people who say the wrong things, the new purveyors of intolerance try to sublimate their prohibitions on speech, expression, and thought into more popularly accepted channels. Something must be done to make these prohibitions more palatable, because there is still a great deal of respect in America for freedom of thought, speech, and expression. How...

    Twitter said Wednesday that it will not suspend Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan over a tweet comparing Jews to termites, the company confirmed to The Hill. Farrakhan, who has been accused of making anti-Semitic remarks for years, posted a clip to Twitter of a speech he gave captioned, "I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-Termite." The tweet prompted backlash on the platform, with figures such as Chelsea Clinton blasting it as anti-Semitic. "The responsive laughter makes my skin crawl. For everyone who rightly condemned President Trumps rhetoric when he spoke about immigrants 'infesting our country,' this rhetoric should be equally...

Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapists arrogated entitlement, Fair wrote in the tweet on September 29.

    An anti-Trump professor, Dr. Carol Christine Fair, is no longer teaching classes at Georgetown University following calls for the outspoken liberal educator to be fired. Fair stirred up controversy on Twitter when she wished miserable deaths upon Republican senators supporting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapists arrogated entitlement, she wrote. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps.

    Taking her place among the gaggle of leftists who have felt compelled to broadcast their opinions regarding the sexual-abuse allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, Georgetown University Associate Professor Carol Christine Fair has weighed in on the matter numerous times in recent days. By any measure, Fair ranks as one of the more overtly angry and unrestrained of Kavanaugh's critics. Professor Fair's reflexive rage may stem, in part, from the tragic fact that in her youth, as she has previously disclosed, she was repeatedly molested by an uncle for about a decade. When Christine Blasey Ford went public with her unsubstantiated, uncorroborated...

The accusations are now being investigated by the FBI. While sharing a video of senator Lindsey Graham on September 29, Fair tweeted: Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial...

    Hillary Clinton, in a television interview Tuesday, rejected the idea that Democrats should be civil with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about, Clinton said. Speaking to CNNs Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, Thats why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, thats when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is...

    Does big tech have a political bias problem? Companies like Facebook and Google have sworn up and down that theyre apolitical but a growing amount of evidence is raising hard questions about the corporate culture within these brands. On Saturday, one of Googles top people single-handedly brought those questions to the surface again. After Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as the next Supreme Court justice, the tech companys design lead went on a hateful rant on Twitter. You are finished, @GOP, posted Dave Hogue, whose bio states that he holds a design lead position at Google. You polished the final...

    When I was in graduate school, I learned a lot about the left. One lesson was that while most liberals and conservatives abide by society's rules of order and decency, most leftists do not feel bound to live by these same rules. I watched the way leftist Vietnam War protesters treated fellow students and professors. I watched left-wing students make "nonnegotiable demands" of college administrations. I saw the Black Panthers engage in violence including torture and murder and be financially rewarded by leftists. Today, we watch leftist mobs scream profanities at professors and deans, and shut down conservative...

    The American Left is stoking hatred and its tearing us apart. Our media is guilty of not only of failing to shame those responsible, in many cases they egg them on, giving them a platform. The volume of irrational hatred spewing into our ether is extremely unhealthy, even dangerous for our republic and the broader American culture.
