    Communism breeds a welfare- dependent society that looks up to the omnipotent government to care for them from cradle to grave. That is not freedom “We condemn freedom of speech that hurts other people’s feelings” – student poster photographed at a rally in California Half of the U.S. population believes that it is a good idea and high time that our country became socialist, on the way to communism. We are told ad nauseam by the highly organized Marxist left that the other communist countries that failed so miserably, oppressed their own people, and killed millions of them, failed because...

    When a federal judge in Tucson ruled a state law unconstitutional this week, it ended a 10-year saga that once consumed Curtis Acosta's life — but also led to ethnic studies programs across the country. “This has been a hard journey to get to this point,” Acosta said when we met last month, the same week he was testifying in the case and under a gag order. "It's like, 'don't mess it up now.'" It was the second time Acosta had gone to court in an attempt to restore Mexican American studies at Tucson Unified School District. The first suit,...

    When a kid goes off to college, you expect him or her to be learning how to handle the reality of adulthood. That's literally the point of college. But here we have the exploits of feminist activist Yvonne Nguyen, who has shaved her head to make ... a STATEMENT. She didn't shave it to support a friend who is fighting cancer, though -- that's always a great move. Nor did she do it because she just likes the way it looks. While it's not my thing, I'm not the one who has to wear it, so more power to her....
  • Josh Whedon warns Trump may start killing gay people

    Hollywood director Josh Whedon has gone off the deep end in his opposition to President Trump. He's apparently something of a celebrity for helming cult projects like "Firefly" and "Serenity." All the more reason to ignore him? Perhaps, but what fun would that be? Whedon created a pro-Hillary ad during the campaign that obviously, had little influence on the outcome. So he's been keeping up a regular tweetstorm since the election warning us about Donald Trump. Recently, he sort of lost it. He retweeted a link to a story about gays being murdered by Muslims in Chechnya by hinting it...

    “African leaders oppress their people without anyone asking them a question”. Does this sound like South Africa? Trump’s criticism of African leaders was direct and truthful considering the state of many African countries.
  • Muslims, Police Scuffle at Rye Playland Over Amusement Park’s Head Scarf Ban; 15 Arrests Made

    Rye Playland was shut down Tuesday after cops scuffled with Muslims upset that women wearing head scarves were barred from the rides, witnesses said. Fifteen people, including three women, were charged with disorderly conduct and assault in the chaos, authorities said. The Westchester County park was packed with Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr - the holiday marking the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. One woman, Entisai Ali, began arguing with cops over the amusement park's head scarf, or hijab, rule, said Dena Meawad, 18, of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The ban, which is not Muslim specific, was imposed about 3...

    When Lulwah Abdul Rahman protested against her father's rejection of all would-be husbands because they were from outside her tribe, her life and career were shattered. Her father locked her in the family home, revoked her right to work at a bank and beat her. When she filed a case to lift her father's guardianship, he consigned her to a mental institution to "discipline" her, she says. "The laws and the society confer absolute power on the father and brother, regardless of how cruel or incompetent they are,'' says Ms Abdul Rahman, 28, who has fled her home and currently...

    PravdABDNC is doing their primary job as the propaganda arm of the obama regime. They have to dismiss the grass roots Tea Parties as a Right Wing movement for fear that Americans will understand that there is a real uprising. The last thing the Establishmedia can afford is that America realize that Hope and Change is really a new cliche for the old Tax and Waste. The fact is this is not a partisan movement but hard working Americans tired of the District of Corruption. This is a spontaneous revolt at the corruption that has permeated our gummit that is...
  • ‘Truth to Power’ Gap (Politicians and journalists are petrified 'coalition of the oppressed')

    Politicians and journalists are petrified of seeming hostile toward members of the “coalition of the oppressed.”‘Speak truth to power,” a phrase of Quaker origins adopted by campus radicals, Hollywood gadflies, and establishment journalists, has become shorthand for bravely criticizing government, big corporations, and other stereotypical villains. But where’s the bravery? I don’t know many journalists who are afraid of the government, and most make their living from big corporations. Sure, liberals — which most journalists are — are afraid of what conservatives will do in power and vice-versa. But they aren’t very afraid of what government will do to them,...

    A study from the Global Terrorism Research Centre at Monash University suggests that Australia's approach to stopping terrorism might actually be encouraging it. Waleed Aly from the centre says the aggressive police approach is alienating young Muslim men, who may be more likely to turn to radical groups as a result. He says a community-based approach may be more effective than a hardline approach.

    For eleven days in 2001, two blacks ran our country. It's their example and their achievement—and not the culture of failure fomented by the leftovers of the Movement—that must set a new agenda for black Americans. Let me tell you something about [n-word]s, the oppressed minority within our minority. Always down. Always out. Always complaining that they can't catch a break. Notoriously poor about doing for themselves. Constantly in need of a leader but unable to follow in any direction that's navigated by hard work, self-reliance. And though they spliff and drink and procreate their way onto welfare doles...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

Yet the Supreme Court thre out sodomy laws in all 50 states and recognized the right of government to seize land for any reason. And you couldn't pass your Social Security changes could you? Sorry, that was your last shot. Come November, we're going to start seeing more Democratic faces in the House. It's the end for you guys. You guys are celebrating when Bush's numbers go *up* to 45%.

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...
