  • Godlessness, Leftism, and the World's Holes

    One of the least known but most influential characters of early American history is the industrialist Samuel Slater. One of my significant resources in documenting Slater's life and work came from author George S. White, who, in 1836, published his book, Memoir of Samuel Slater: The Father of American Manufactures. I found White's book a fascinating account of early industrial America. In the introduction to Slater's memoir, while singing the praises of the industrious Slater – he's known today as the "Father of the American Industrial Revolution," – Mr. White also speaks against the "Occupy" fools of the early 19th...

    Welcome back! Crazy waits for no man, so let's get right to it! Once again, we'll first go back in time: 12/22 - Portland's top brass said it was OK to swipe your garbage--so we grabbed theirs.This is a truly heartwarming tale, as in one where folks from both sides of the aisle can unite and laugh at some hypocritical authoritarian D-bags! 1/12 - Apparently, Not Wanting to Repeat Errors of the Past Makes you a Racist. Oddly enough, the people who took the most offense are the last ones to call for residents of these s***holes to come to their...

    It's time American parents wake up to the reality of what many of our children are being 'instructed' in classrooms from coast to coast The American Left has morphed into our newest religion. With frightening similarities to Islam, the religion of the Left “is an authoritarian movement that wants total compliance with its dictates,” says Daniel Greenfield, journalism fellow at the Freedom Center, “with severe punishments for those who disobey.” In my new book, “Tyranny of the Minority,” I warn that “a Hillary Clinton victory might have placed us closer to a political inquisition in which conservatives would be given...
  • Red Robin Will Offset Minimum Wage Hikes by Canning Busboys

    Restaurant busboys, in line to earn a little more dough this year as minimum wage hikes hit across the country, are instead losing their jobs as chains look to cut costs. One chain axing jobs is Red Robin, which hopes to save about $8 million this year by eliminating busboys at each of its 570 restaurants, the company said Monday. Red Robin restaurants are located mostly in Western states, where the minimum wage has risen more quickly.

    Social-justice warriors dominate a leading tech company.Let’s ponder a disturbing question: What if the crisis of free speech on college campuses, with their often extreme intolerance for conservative points of view, represents the high point for free expression in a student’s life? In other words, what if the “real world” is more repressive, more ignorant, and more punitive toward dissenting speech? What if entire corporations adopt the ideologies and norms of the most ruthless campus social-justice warriors, ruining careers and depriving employees of their livelihoods when those employees dissent from the dominant ideology? In other words, what if the rest...
  • Why Liberals Need to Look Down on Conservatives

    01/09/2018 6:08:37 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 51 replies ^ | Selwyn Duke
    A common theme among progressives is that conservatives aren't just wrong; they're dumb. Reagan was dumb. G.W. Bush was dumb. Trump is dumb. "Knuckle-dragger," "mouth-breather," "stupid," and "uncultured" are typical pejoratives hurled at conservatives, who apparently tend to live in trailer parks, require dental care, handle snakes, and marry first cousins. Why, I had a liberal actor (excuse the redundancy) tell me once that I wasn't necessarily bad, just not as "evolved" as he was. (I had a great retort at the ready, but I decided just to lash him with my tail instead.) The reason for this arrogance isn't...

It looks like 2018 is going to have just as much crazy as 2017, so let's get to it! 12/24 - HOW TRUMP AND THE NAZIS STOLE CHRISTMAS TO PROMOTE WHITE NATIONALISM Right now you might be saying, "Ah, Brother Bob is still recovering from New Years' Eve festivities and forgot to embed the link to that last story!"

    A conservative cynic from birth, I foolishly thought I had seen it all when it came to leftist madness. But then I saw, posted on CNN’s website, “Why kids love 'fascist' cartoons like 'Paw Patrol' and 'Thomas'.” The article referenced several other articles that described Thomas as “a premodern corporate-totalitarian dystopia,” “imperialist racist and sinister,” and “classist, sexist, and anti-environmentalist.” This caught my attention because my six-year-old boy -- like children all over the world -- loves stories of Thomas the Train. I recently took my children to Thomasland in Massachusetts and now my boy wants to visit the Thomasland...

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel will get a brief break from his troubles in Chicago thanks to a star in the vast constellation of brother Ari Emanuel. When news broke that Emanuel will go to New York to be a guest on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday, I couldn’t help but immediately suspect Colbert is one of the many entertainers who make gobs of money for uber-agent (and Uber investor) Ari Emanuel. Well, sure enough, what could seem like a cynical question yielded just the answer I suspected: Ari Emanuel’s massive Endeavor talent agency owns the company that manages...

    If you are inclined to commit a heinous crime, San Francisco is the place for you. You can sneak into City Hall armed with a .38-caliber revolver, murder the mayor and a supervisor in cold blood, and get away with it. All you need to do is conjure some preposterous defense. Blame it on an excessive consumption of junk food like Twinkies and you can beat the rap. You know… eat a Twinkie and commit murder. A San Francisco jury will lap it up. So, it should come as no surprise that the killer of Kate Steinle was acquitted Thursday...

    Geert Wilders: Migrants get preferential treatment over ordinary Dutch people Geert Wilders will file charges against Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte because of discrimination against the Dutch people. The Freedom Party leader opened a special website yesterday where Dutch people can express their support and give examples of discrimination against them. Wilders’ initiative is a great success with thousands of replies and support messages already. Wilders writes about the initiative: “If anyone in the Netherlands is treated unequally, it is the Dutch person himself. There are numerous examples of this on the website. That is why I am going to...

    Apple’s vice president of diversity and inclusion will be stepping down at the end of the year after outrage over comments she made claiming white men can still bring diverse viewpoints to the workplace. According to Quartz, at the One Young World Summit in October, Denise Young Smith spoke about her efforts to increase diversity at Apple. Instead of saying she specifically tries to recruit people based on their race and gender, Young Smith said, “I focus on everyone.” “Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the...

    Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) introduced Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, our affiliate WZTV reported. According to a summary from the Articles of Impeachment, several congressmen are claiming President Trump has tried to conceal information in the FBI's investigation into Russia's interference with the 2016 presidential election. "Donald J. Trump, in violation of his constitutional oath and obligations, has engaged personally, and through his subordinates and agents, in a course of conduct designed to delay and impede an investigation and to conceal information sought by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the course of its investigation into...
  • Stalking Horses

    When hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their prey. They would synchronize their steps on the side of the horse away from their prey until they were close enough for a good shot. A stalking horse had a double benefit if the prey was an armed person. If the stalkers were discovered, it would be the horse that took the first shot. That's what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America -- stalking horses. Let's look at it.I'll just list a few...

    "Too long a sacrifice / Can make a stone of the heart," the Irish poet W.B. Yeats wrote, having witnessed the violence of the 1916 Easter Rising and its aftermath. In an America more divided than ever, and with the left more radicalized than ever, there are all too many hearts of stone. The Washington shooting of Steve Scalise and other Republican lawmakers back in June; the attack on Sen. Rand Paul last week; and now the massacre in Southerland Springs, Texas – all of them appear to have been carried out by persons motivated at least in part by...

    Sociopaths and Leftists share a common behavior trait - projection - accusing someone else of doing exactly what you are doing yourself. The crucial difference between sociopaths and Leftists is that Leftist projection is conscious and sociopathic projection is unconscious. The sociopath has a personality disorder that manifests itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience. Let’s compare and contrast the nature of psychological projection with political projection. Sigmund Freud described psychological projection as the defensive mechanism of denying in oneself the existence of unpleasant behavior while attributing that exact behavior to others. (“Case Histories II,...
