    The American Conservative ^ | February 11, 2014 | William S. Lind
    An unfortunate legacy of the Cold War is the negative attitude some American conservatives yet harbor toward Russia. Conditioned for decades to see Russia and the Soviet Union as synonymous, they still view post-communist Russia as a threat. They forget that Tsarist Russia was the most conservative great power, a bastion of Christian monarchy loathed by revolutionaries, Jacobins, and democrats. Joseph de Maistre was not alone among 19th-century conservatives in finding refuge and hope in Russia. Under President Vladimir Putin, Russia is emerging once more as the leading conservative power. As we witnessed in Russia’s rescue of President Obama from...
  • The Origins of Political Correctness

    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...
  • Hate Crime Legislation - Back Door to Censorship

    American Thinker ^ | May 10, 2009 | James Simpson
    An extension of the Hate Crimes law recently passed the House of Representatives which will essentially codify into national law the "speech codes" that are smothering academic freedom on college campuses today. This law is the back door method Obama and his fellow socialists will use to stifle free speech in this country, as explained in an informative article by Jerry Kane at American Daughter. To heck with the "Fairness Doctrine." Who needs to limit censorship to the airwaves? This legislation will silence anyone who disagrees with them. Hate crimes legislation has its roots in the communist-inspired, so-called Frankfurt School...

    The distemper of lies, misdirection and tawdry thinking abroad in the world today has now acquired bubonic proportions. This is mainly a a liberal-left phenomenon intent upon a campaign of cultural domination that began with the rainbow revolution of the so-called Woodstock generation and which has finally percolated into every nook and cranny of our daily existence. In its takeover of our cultural life, the generation of the 60s has adhered loyally to the course of action set down for it by two neo-Marxist philosophers, the Italian New Left prophet Antonio Gramsci and the German emigré Herbert Marcuse, whose doctrines...

    Movieguide® ^ | Sept. 11, 2006 | Dr. Ted Baehr
    When I go speak to my class at a seminary at one of the top ten universities in the United States, I find that most of the students seeking ordination, even the smartest and most gracious ones, have a deep-seated hatred for their own culture. They hate white males, Christianity and Western Civilization. Entitled “The Enemies in Their Midst,” The Los Angeles Times had a front page article on Sept. 1 talking about Britain's (and Europe’s) homegrown problem – Muslim militants converts "with British passports and the accompanying resources and western ways, as well as links to lethal [terrorist] networks...
  • The Marxist Roots of Democrat Obstructionist Tactics

    THE RANT.US ^ | FEBRUARY 18, 2005 | GREG LEWIS
    Much has been written recently about the fact that Democrats, arguably with malicious intent, mercilessly attack Republican positions, programs, and political appointees without offering any positive alternatives of their own. This has been ascribed variously to their hatred of George W. Bush (which is certainly a factor), to the fact that a significant percentage of the Democrat base and their elected representatives are unrepentant '60s-style liberals (this, too, plays into the current scenario), even, as Michael Medved has put it, to "an internal contradiction deep within the liberal soul." The bottom line is that, no matter how we might characterize...

    This is a proposed slogan for Freeps. Certainly it would be great for a Hillary or a Barbara Boxer or a Barney Frank sign. Here are a couple of thoughts of explanation. The perversion the Democrats seek is not just sexual perversion. They seek to pervert the state, school, church, voluntary organizations of every kind with their marxist/marcusian ideology that says that were are "progressing" towards a one-world one-sex socialist environmentalist utopia. They seek to spread that message and undermine the original purpose of every institution they touch. These wackos have captured the Democratic Party and need to be exposed....

    Townhall.com ^ | September 28, 2004 | Chris Banescu
    In his new book, Intellectual Morons, Daniel Flynn exposes the dangers of blindly following intellectual elites who support and promote idiotic ideas and theories. Chris Banescu, who recently wrote the review of the book, interviewed Flynn about the origins of the material and the impact its revelations will have on our culture. Chris Banescu: What inspired you to write this book? Daniel Flynn: My goal in writing Intellectual Morons is to get more people to think with their brain rather than their ideology. By exposing ideologically-inspired hoaxes and frauds, the book not only rebuts falsehood but helps immunize readers against...

    Mindszenty Report ^ | January 2003 | William A. Borst
    A Nation of Frogs William W. BorstMindszenty Report | January 2003 Just recently, I was discussing the tax system with my attorney who had just completed my mother's estate. When I informed him of the Marxist underpinnings of, not only the so-called "death tax," but also the graduated income tax, he was shocked. He had no idea that Karl Marx had wriuen the major elements in the tax code with which he had been working his entire professional life. All one has to do is read the Communist Manifesto, written by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in 1848. The...
