    The Social Justice Warriors briefly had a new hero in the battle to prove that all cops are racists this summer and it came from the hotbed of racial intolerance known as the Connecticut suburbs. A professor at a community college in Hartford was pulled over on a rather basic traffic violation and was accosted by the police officer in a way which clearly demonstrated racial profiling. Or so she claimed. According to Fox CT, Minati Roychoudhuri, 32, was driving on a highway on May 9 when she was pulled over in the town of Wethersfield. She was cited...

    "... The five teachers, who are part of a TV series in which they take over the education of a class of 50 teenagers, have said British pupils unruly behaviour is directly linked to welfare handouts that has produced adolescents with rude behaviour. The teachers are starring in BBC Two's “Are Our Kids Tough Enough Chinese School” as part of a three-part documentary that begins Tuesday. ..

    Friday in Fort Lauderdale, FL at the National Urban League Conference, Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said President Barack Obama is “speaking the truth” on racial injustice. Bush said, “When President Obama says that ‘for too long we’ve been blind to the way past injustices continue to shape the present,’ he is speaking the truth. But we should be just as candid about our failures in addressing injustices of the more recent origin. In our cities we’ve got so many people that have never known anything but poverty is. So many young adults with no vision of...

    "All cops are bastards!" "F**k cops!" "This is what white supremacy looks like!" On a tranquil Sunday afternoon in Denver, hate-mongering zealots hijacked a rally held by citizens and families of fallen police officers, who had gathered to pay tribute to Colorado's honorable men and women in blue. The event organizer, local businessman Ron MacLachlan, followed all the rules and obtained a city permit. Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a proclamation declaring July 19 Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. The idea, MacLachlan explained to local reporters, was to show his teenage children and other young people the myriad positive contributions of...

    The plan for a museum in the city that would focus on climate and climate change, with exhibits that could relate to health, social justice and rain-delayed baseball games, moved a step forward Monday, officials said. The state Board of Regents, meeting in Albany, approved a five-year provisional charter for the museum, Regents spokesman Tom Dunn said. The vote means “there is absolutely going to be a museum,” said Miranda Massie, executive director of the Climate Museum Launch Project. She said the museum is now “empowered to hold collections in trust for the public.” Supporters say it would be the...

    The Supreme Court has just agreed to reconsider the constitutionality of racial preferences in university admissions (although the advocates of these preferences prefer the seemingly more uplifting term “affirmative action.”) It is long past time that the Supreme Court declared this insidious and counterproductive policy unconstitutional for public universities and colleges, and hopefully private institutions will decide that it is incumbent upon them to also stop basing admissions decisions on race, gender or sexual preference. The idea of granting preferences based on race, gender or sexual orientation is so offensive and so un-American that its proponents have had to...

As far as culture-war victories go, the flag news was big, but the marriage ruling was tantamount to VE...

    Investigative journalist Brad Friedman has observed that America is moving in a progressive direction, despite the mainstream media’s “center-right nation” shibboleth. Despite the obstacles that have been placed in the pathway of progressives, Friedman is correct beyond dispute. Think back to a decade ago. Same-sex marriage was considered an abomination in large parts of the country. Christian fundamentalists were flexing their muscles as never before. Rush Limbaugh and Fox dominated the American media landscape. The Bush administration had launched a war on climate science. Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was gay-bashing his way to national prominence. Today, marriage equality is the...

Barack Obama has been extraordinarily successful in his desire to — what was that phrase? — fundamentally transform the country, but the metamorphosis is nonetheless a good deal less than his congregation wanted and expected. We may have gone from being up to our knees in welfare-statism to being up to our hips in it, and from having a bushel of banana-republic corruption and incompetence to having a bushel...

An American could speak his mind more freely in 1970 than now. Many in the United States had naively believed that the Enlightenment, the U.S. Constitution, and over two centuries of American customs and traditions had guaranteed that Americans could always take for granted free speech and unfettered inquiry That is an ahistorical assumption.

In the first Gilded Age, Americans fought back against inequality and the oligarchs who threatened democracy. Over the past few decades, it seems like we’ve given up. Reading Steve Fraser’s new book brought to mind a note that a young woman student had appended to a final essay exam in one of my classes some twenty-five years ago. After doing a splendid...

    "What is the Islamic State? Where did it come from, and what are its intentions? The simplicity of these questions can be deceiving, and few Western leaders seem to know the answers. In December, The New York Times published confidential comments by Major General Michael K. Nagata, the Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East, admitting that he had hardly begun figuring out the Islamic State’s appeal. “We have not defeated the idea,” he said. “We do not even understand the idea.” In the past year, President Obama has referred to the Islamic State, variously, as...

    OAKLAND (KPIX 5) – After the recent Black Lives Matter protests, there is a new brownie troop in Oakland. Instead of selling cookies, they are spreading a message. On a Saturday afternoon in Oakland, a handful of 8 to 10 year old girls are gathered, in brown uniforms, giggling and eating cupcakes. They look like Girl Scouts, but it’s not just fun and games. And it’s not just fun and games. “White policeman are killing black young folks such as women, men and children,” one of the girls said. Another girl said, “Mike Brown. He was shot because he didn’t...

    Described as an "edgier, younger version of the Girl Scouts," Anayvette Martinez created the "Radical Brownies" last year. The new group aims to push what it describes as "social justice" and badges can be earned protesting against police. Membership is specifically tailored toward young girls of African American or Hispanic ancestry. Children of different races are allowed to join, but the "program will always remain focused on young girls of color." With such goals, it is not surprising to learn that one of the group's main goals is to emulate "social justice movements such [as] the Black Panthers." The same...

    “Social Justice” is a term you hear almost every day. But did you ever hear anybody define what it actually means? Jonah Goldberg of the American Enterprise Institute tries to pin this catchall phrase to the wall. In doing so, he exposes the not-so-hidden agenda of those who use it. What sounds so caring and noble turns out to be something very different. Watch the video:

    My heart breaks for New York City tonight. NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu had their lives stolen from them. Ismaaiyl Brinsley allegedly approached their marked police car and opened fire before later turning the gun on himself. His Instagram account told the story: "I'm putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours, let's take 2 of theirs" - vengeance for the death of New York's Eric Garner, who died after an officer's use of an illegal chokehold. According to authorities, Brinsley shot and wounded his girlfriend earlier in the day. Clearly, Brinsley was a disturbed man....

    With the recent defeat of Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu — which leaves three Democratic Southern U.S. Senators — the common wisdom is that Democrats should bid farewell to the South. Even with favorable changing national demographics that benefit Democrats, an abandonment of the South and, on a larger scale, a viable moderate wing would be a mistake. Recently, writer Michael Tomasky argued that the South, a “reactionary, prejudice-infested” region, should be left to Republicans to create a “free market Jesus paradise.” Few sentiments better show what is wrong with Democrats today and why ironic Republican arguments that it is the...

    With drums, posters and a cause, 70 Dalhousie University students threaded through Halifax’s core late last month protesting rights abuses in North Korea. It was not a controversial cause — not the way abortion or any of the other hot topics of the day might be, organizer Robert Huish acknowledges. Their biggest challenge, he said, was figuring out how to keep candles lit in sub-zero temperatures. The turnout was great — perfect, even — quite likely because the participants’ academic success depended on it. Mr. Huish, a Dalhousie professor, is perhaps the first university instructor in Canada to award...

    The Benefits of Being Politically Correct By Anna North November 10, 2014 1:20 pm 30 Comments When people bring up political correctness, they’re often talking about how much they hate it. Unlike, say, “diversity” or “inclusion,” the term is perhaps most frequently used by those who object to what it stands for, who feel that calls to change the way they speak harm them or society in some way. These objections inspired Jack Goncalo, a professor of organizational behavior at Cornell, and his team to study the actual effects of political correctness. They’d heard “this idea that the effort to...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice recently promised a whopping $63 million to investigate school safety programs and to reward districts for implementing “restorative justice” and other related school discipline programs. According to an October 1st statement from Attorney General Eric Holder, “This funding is being awarded as part of the Comprehensive School Safety Initiative – a large-scale, multi-agency research effort to build practical, and scientifically-sound, knowledge about effective ways to increase school safety nationwide.” However, according to a review of past and current restorative justice initiatives in schools, the funding appears to be just...
