  • First They Came for Andrew Jackson, Now They’ve Come for Woodrow Wilson, So Who’s Next?

    The American Spectator ^ | 11-20-15 | Aaron Goldstein
    One need not be a fan of Woodrow Wilson to be appalled at the ease with which Princeton University sees fit to erase any association it has with the 28th President of the United States because of a few bullies who have nothing constructive to do with their lives. Wilson, of course, was President of Princeton from 1902 to 1910. This is no different than the effort to remove Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill. To give you an idea of how deep moral equivalency is imbedded in our university students, I recently attended a Halloween Party where I spoke...
  • Jesse Jackson Calls On Tech's 'Unicorns' To Join Apple, Google And Release Diversity Reports

    SAN FRANCISCO -- The herd of $1 billion-plus startups -- the so-called "unicorns" -- is growing. But the workforces at these oversized startups are raising a question now familiar to Silicon Valley: do these mythical creatures only come white and male? A year ago, Rev. Jesse Jackson drew attention to Silicon Valleys lack of diversity and spurred Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo and many others to start issuing diversity reports to hold themselves accountable. But now he has a new target: the unicorns, which are delaying their IPOs and, in a sense, public scrutiny, as they look to establish markets around...

    This is a meltdown that took place on the radio yesterday. To set this up. Kim Wade is a conservative black talk show host in the Jackson area. David L. Archie is black and a "community activist". He ran for Hinds County Supervisor (Supervisors are like city council but for a county) and lost. He was in the Bennie Thompson black power crowd and loves to use the phrase "Uncle Tom". The incumbent he faced is black minister and a former fire chief.They ran all kinds of dirty ads on him.

When I got back up, after the shots was gone, I seen somebody in all this black running down the street, and when I looked down on the ground, I seen my son."

    Last month Matt Vespa covered the story of Democrats in Virginia who were talking about changing the name of their annual Jefferson Jackson dinner because of the Dylan Roof shooting or the Confederate Battle Flag or racism or something. That may have sounded rather silly at the time, but it’s turned out to be prophetic. Democrats in Connecticut also have an annual dinner named after the same prominent early Americans – as with their fellows across the nation – and have made the decision to change the name. (Because who would want to be associated with those guys, right?)...

But progressives’ fetishizing of dead people is very, very specific – they love dead black men who were killed by white men.

Carson responded that the incarceration and violence in black communities was largely a matter of personal responsibility, not racial disparities. If you take race out of the issue altogether...

Note: I assume the Jackson-Sharpton team is now demanding royalties from both Holder and Obama. Determined to find (or likely fabricate?) evidence in order to indict and prosecute the badly-beaten-by-Michael-Brown Police...
