  • 'Black Lives Matter' Gets One Right: Woodrow Wilson Was a Terrible Racist

    11/24/2015 3:25:06 AM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 22 replies
    PJ Media ^ | 11-23-2015 | Michael van der Galien
    The Black Lives Matter movement has frequently been criticized by conservatives, and for good reason. The organization is undeniably radical and practices race-based intimidation. For instance, slightly less than two weeks ago, activists attacked white students studying in a library at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Their "sin," apparently, was their skin -- the white students were born racists and criminals per the eyes of Black Lives Matter. The innocent students were slammed against the walls, cursed at, and berated for their supposed racial privilege. Having said that, even a broken clock is right twice a day. In subject...

    CNN ^ | 11/20/2015 | William R. Keylor
    On the 100th anniversary of President Woodrow Wilson's inauguration in 2013 I wrote an op-ed published in the Richmond Post-Dispatch reminding its readers of the retrograde racial views of our 28th president that few Americans were aware of (except for historians of the Wilson presidency who have mentioned it in their works). Later, professor Randy Barnett of the Georgetown University Law Center quoted extensively from my article to call for the removal of Wilson's name from all public buildings in the country. The issue of Wilson's racial views and policies then virtually disappeared from the public discourse until students at...

    The racially charged protests that have roiled 23 universities from Yale to the University of Missouri in recent weeks reached Princeton on Wednesday. Members of the Black Justice League left their classes and occupied historic Nassau Hall, which houses the Princeton administration's offices. They demanded that officials acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson - who was president of Princeton before becoming president of the United States and expunge his name from anything named after him. They further demanded "cultural competency training" for anyone teaching at Princeton, courses on the "history of marginalized people," and a designated public space for...
  • Mayor de Blasio Says NYC Will Welcome Refugees

    Mayor de Blasio says New York City will not turn away any refugees fleeing Syria. De Blasio said Tuesday that New York "is a proud immigrant city" and would welcome refugees trying to escape the conflict in their homeland. Many public officials and U.S. presidential candidates have expressed wariness at admitting refugees in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris last week. De Blasio chided a pair of local Republicans running for president. He called New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie "an embarrassment to this country" and said that the city "will adhere to the words of our Founding Fathers,...

    Those of us who oppose the expansion of governmental controls often get the retort, "You’re just using a slippery slope argument; the bad consequences you foresee are extremely unlikely to happen." Ah, but predicted bad consequences often do happen. As evidence, I offer the following instance. In 2013, a student in Palatine Township High School (Illinois) complained about sexual discrimination to the federal Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The allegedly illegal "discrimination" suffered was because the school refused to allow the student, a male who “identifies” as a female, to use the girls' locker room. The applicable...

    Because all progressives are fascist statists at heart. Back when Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, she realized that only the elimination of what she called “the mongrel peoples” would allow her to achieve her statist goals. Her organization was designed with population control in mind and those who didn’t measure up were to be ‘bred out’ of the population. Since then, progressives have done everything they can to pretend she’s a saint who wanted nothing more than to further women’s reproductive rights but, deep down, their totalitarian instincts still trend toward population control. These days, of course, it’s in the...

California endures some of the highest gasoline taxes, sales taxes and income taxes in the nation. Yet its roads and public schools rate near the very bottom of U.S. rankings. Traffic accidents in California increased by 13 percent over a three-year period -- the result of terrible roads and worse drivers. Almost half of all accidents in Los Angeles are hit-and-runs where the drivers leave the scene. California has lots of petroleum and natural gas. It used to be a pacesetter...

But that brings us to the second profound political fact: the rejection of the de-incarceration, de-policing agenda by other groups, including other groups that aligned with Barack Obama and the Democrats in 2008. A 2014 Los Angeles Times survey asked Californians whether local police were too aggressive and posed more of a threat than anything else: 42 percent of black voters said yes, as against 28 percent of Latinos, 21 percent of Asians, and 11 percent of whites.

    The idea for the conference was sparked when Cheok and Levy, two academics interested in robotics, met several years ago and realized they had goals in common. Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships, focuses on the brain, the software side, and the algorithms of humanoid robots. Cheok researches the hardware side from an engineering view, looking at multi-modal interfaces including communication by touch, taste, and smell. These areas of study, Cheok said, will be important in the future of robots. "A lot of the technology that's incubating in my lab will be integrated...

    When it comes to considering the arguments of newly resurgent Christian progressives, we hold these truths to be self-evident: Jesus was not a socialist, the Bible is not an economics textbook, and while scripture commands believers to help the poor, it also commands the poor to help themselves. As Pope Francis gains rock-star status on the economic left, Christians would do well to remember not just scripture, but the economic reality of recent world experience. This morning, the pope addressed Congress with relative restraint. Rather than decrying the perceived excesses of global capitalism calling it, as he once...

    The messenger needed shooting. Forget the message On July 22 Juan Williams, a progressive pundit on Fox (yes there are democrats on Fox) was appalled by the release of a video taken by The Centre For Medical Progress that revealed Dr. Mary Gatter, the medical director for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, talking about the selling of fetal baby parts. I was watching the conversation unfold. This occurred one week after another video had been released with Dr. Debora Nucatola Senior Director of all medical services for Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is selling fetal baby parts-which is against the law. When...

    Back in March, the pundits expressed horror at the alleged extremism of the Conservative Political Action Conference. On ABC, NPR correspondent Cokie Roberts insisted "I think the person that won at CPAC was John Kasich. He didn't show up, and I think that's the wisest thing for anybody to do." ABC pundit Matthew Dowd bizarrely suggested Ronald Reagan would be booed at today's CPAC. On NBC, they found peril for Scott Walker after his speech: "Governor's gaffe? ... Presidential hopeful Scott Walker under fire for saying his experience with union protesters has prepared him to take on ISIS. Is it...

    For years, the right has been frustrated by the lefts ability to unite various interest groups successfully as a force. The right hasnt had as much success, with factions calling each other RINOs and lecturing about Reagans 11th Commandment. Now, it looks like the lefts ability to work together is finally unraveling. It is happening because the left has become increasingly obsessed with identity politics, labeling everyone in groups and stereotypes instead of as individuals. As we all learned from history, grouping people by race resulted in terrible things like slavery. It is unsustainable, as it breeds resentment toward other...

    Supporting Americas enemies abroad and criminals at home The modern-day progressives abiding hatred of the United States of America and the eternal principles for which it stands is what animates the Lefts efforts to cripple and destroy this one-of-a-kind nation. It is fair to say that support for Americas enemies abroad and criminals at home are the twin pillars of progressivism today. Since in the real world left-wing social engineering schemes inflict great damage on the human beings selected for experimentation, progressives most effective tactic is the smear, which they deploy day in, day out, when they run out of...

    The Conservative base is upset to put it mildly with the Progressive RINO Establishment Since November of 2010 when Marco Rubio, along with John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, et al, began to walk back poker-faced campaign promises Ive been documenting evidence indicting Marco Rubio as a happy little ladder-climber within the Progressive RINO Establishment. After winning in 2010, they spoke of compromise and bi-partisanship; not unlike a marketing theme incongruously composed and presented in a conference call. Many other conservatives grasping history are with me in the Reagan school of compromise: We win, they lose. As with...

    On Friday, large crowds in Tehran and other Iranian cities burned American flags and chanted Death to America! On Saturday, Iranian media outlets reported that Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei had instructed university students to continue the struggle against arrogant powers with the United States at the top of that list. On Tuesday, President Obama announced an historic agreement between Iran and the United States. It would be comforting to believe that the last of these developments mitigates the first two that with an agreement in place, Irans struggle to bring about Americas demise will begin at least to...

    Obamacare! The War on Drugs! A War on Poverty! Prohibition! The idea that government will bring social progress isn't new. Europe's monarchs believed in big government long before there was a Soviet Union or a welfare state. Eighteenth-century philosopher Voltaire praised "enlightened" monarchs like Prussia's Frederick the Great. Since the nineteenth century, so-called "progressives" have wanted government to get ever larger. They got their wish. The results were not so good for people. Today pundits and protesters moan about fiscal "austerity" in nations like Greece. But if austerity means cuts in government, there hasn't been much of it. Sure, Greece...

    Donors have given just $30,000 to Lincoln Chafees Democratic run for president, leading him to acknowledge that Democratic competitor Bernie Sanders is filling the role he hoped to play in the 2016 contest. Chafee lent his campaign $364,000, according to federal campaign finance filings. The former Rhode Island governor trails by a wide margin in fundraising. The campaign for Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton said it raised $45 million since mid-April, while Sanders, a Vermont senator, has raised $15 million since he joined the race in late April. I always thought that there was fundraising potential for an honest progressive...

    Are we still a serious country? I couldnt help but notice something last week about the stories that were emphasized in the news and about the way they were treated. Lets start with Donald Trump. He may not be your top choice for president. He may not be mine. But the reaction to what he said about illegal immigrants bringing crime into the United States has been one of the most absurd spectacles weve seen in some time. His fellow Republican candidates have either rushed to denounce his statement, or have been put on the defensive in explaining why...

    I hate America. I hate all Americans! Ariana Grande is but yet another twisted link in a growing chain of bitter ignorance and defiant decadence that is strangling our youths ability to discern our most basic blessings. If I may ask, Princess, what is so unbearably unfair about living in a nation that tolerates and graciously rewards ungrateful, spiteful, and spoiled Disney debutantes like yourself? Is your festering rage caused by the fact your seven-figure checks arent made on recyclable hemp paper or that you might actually have to sign them? Could it possibly emanate from the disturbing discovery your...

    Todays progressive ideas are nothing but retreads of the notorious 19th and 20th century command-and-control tyrannies that killed about 120 million of their own citizens. Variously known as socialism, Communism, and Marxism, their chief practitioners were Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot. Thats why hearing modern militant liberals called progressives induces brain bleed in this particular brain. As long as we allow reality-denying liberals to call themselves progressives we are telling the world their tired, failed ideas are the smartest, most forward-thinking of mindsets. And were handing them a critical public relations victory. If they are progressives, by default...

    Old fashioned religion with its eye on the ethics of responsibilities as well as rights helps keep our society strong by teaching family values-the value of family I recently listened to a programme on the CBC about the killing of twins in some Nigerian tribes. This has been going on for some time. I found references from the early 1990s In Abuja, it is believed that the birth of a set of twins is a sacrilege which brings misfortune both to the family and the village, they see twins as children formed by the devil and therefore are evil. They...
