  • Science and its Enemies on the Left: An Update - The Democrats' and the Left's War on Science

    10/08/2010 7:27:27 PM PDT · by neverdem · 22 replies ^ | October 8, 2010 | Dan McLaughlin
    Scientific integrity and scientific progress continue to take a beating from the Left.In Part I of my series of essays on Science and its Enemies on the Left, I looked at the toll of junk science, quackery and anti-technological Luddism and the role of the social and political Left in promoting all three. In Part II, I looked at politicized science (both the misuse of science by politicians and the politicization of scientists themselves) and the temptations presented to scientists by their ability to gain power through science.I’m overdue to finish Part III of the series, but in the meantime,...

    David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | September 30, 2010 | Kathy Shaidle
    When I first started writing for NewsReal Blog, I was assigned the Media Matters beat, mocking and debunking those self-appointed "media watchdogs" of the Left. "But if you get burned out, we'll understand," my editor added. "That site is pretty toxic." "I can handle it," I chirped in my best "seasoned professional" voice. Oh well. After filing daily stories, month after month, in which I fact-checked the "George Soros Steno Pool," burn out I did. In my career, I've covered not one but two sordid, seemingly never-ending national Catholic Church sex scandals (the Canadian one, then the American version), but...

    Frontier families kept a shotgun above the mantle, always at the ready, to protect their children from wandering predators. Every generation has had hardships and obstacles to overcome. As a parent today, you face issues no other generation before you has had to face. The predators that threaten your family are evil, unseen and opportunistic. They sneak through your backdoor, as laws that pass with little notice. They lurk in our courtrooms, where your parental rights are whittled away without announcement. They thrive in classrooms, where politically correct ideals are taught, and traditional values and childhood innocence are lost....

  • Why the Left Hates Conservatives: Liberals don’t just hate conservatism; they hate individuals

    The National Review ^ | July 27, 2010 | Dennis Prager
    Of all the recent revelations to come out of JournoList, an e-mail list consisting of about 400 liberal/left journalists, perhaps the most telling is the depth of their hatred for conservatives. That these journalists would consult with one another in order to protect candidate and then President Obama and in order to hurt Republicans is unfortunate and ugly. What is jolting is the hatred of conservatives on display, as exemplified by the e-mail from a public-radio reporter expressing her wish to personally see Rush Limbaugh die a painful death — and the apparent absence of any objection from her fellow...

    American Thinker ^ | July 21, 2010 | Steve McCann
    Could it be that we are watching the final unraveling of the old and well-worn playbook of the Left and the ruling class? One of the oldest tactics is the inevitable shouts of racism which is designed to not only distract the opposition but to mobilize minorities seems now to be no longer effective. The NAACP has been exposed for the hypocritical organization that it is. The election of a black President, who chooses to tacitly condone rhetoric to keep the races at odds with each other, has ironically released much of the population from the guilt for the country's...
  • Progress: Schools Teaching Your 10-Year-Old Child About Anal Sex

    David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | July 14, 2010 | Lori Ziganto
    Funny, but I always thought that schools should focus on teaching our children subjects like reading, writing and math. Not so, evidently! That’s for fuddy-duddy, old school philistines. Nowadays, with those things called Progress and hopeandchange ™, our children are being taught about oral and anal sex and “fisting.” Often under the guise of abstinence programs and without the consent, or even the knowledge of, their parents. Montana is just the latest example of where this dangerous sexploitation of your children is occurring. Included in their new proposed “health” curriculum: By fifth grade, they are taught there are several types...

    Texas for Sarah Palin ^ | July 13, 2010 at 5:25 PM CDST | Josh Painter
    Guest blogging for lunatic Andrew Sullivan, disgraced former WaPo blogger David Weigel tries to talk some sense into Sully: Trig Palin is Sarah Palin's son and it's irresponsible to suggest otherwise. [...] All of the evidence indicates that Trig Palin is Sarah's son, and none of it suggests otherwise. I paid close enough attention to this in 2008, and realized pretty quickly that the countervailing theories made no sense. Too many people watched Palin announce the pregnancy and saw her come along until she went into labor, prematurely, while attending a National Governors Association event in Texas. Here in Alaska,...
  • Townhall: The 100 Americans The Left Hates Most (Sarah Palin #2)

    06/24/2010 12:15:40 PM PDT · by MaxCUA · 12 replies
    As we have watched the ongoing fight in America over the direction of the country, the actions of the Obama administration and Democratic Congress, and the efforts of the tea party movement, the Townhall editorial team has noticed a disturbing pattern: the American Left is trashing everyone who dares to stand against them. The more effective the voices that oppose their agenda, the greater the venom the Left spews in their direction. It’s this out-of-control behavior from our fellow citizens who are sold out to the ultra- liberal progressive Obama agenda to “radically transform” the United States that led us...

    May 19, 2010: I’ve arrived in Wasilla, Alaska, home to Sarah Palin! But it’s clear she’s already prepared an unfriendly reception. When I told the cabbie “I’m Joe McGinniss, the best-selling author,” he tried to act like he didn’t even know who I was. Well, if these hillbillies think they can fool this newshound, they’ve got another think coming! May 20, 2010: Delighted to find indoor plumbing and electricity up here. Took a break from unpacking to check out the new place’s view. As soon as Bristol saw me, she shut her curtains – as if a few strips of...

    Many people on the left believe that they are tolerant because they are pro-choice, favor gay marriage and are generally socially liberal. But that is not tolerance. Tolerance is putting up with viewpoints and behavior that you don’t agree with. Liberals and leftists have a very hard time with that. For the second time in two years, agreeing with a majority of Americans is verboten at the Miss USA beauty pageant. In 2009, Carrie Prejean

    While it cannot be proven, there is little reason to doubt that many on the Left are disappointed that the Times Square bomber didn't turn out to be the "white male" he was originally identified as. This allegation may be wrong, but it is made on the basis of compelling evidence.There is a perfectly clear pattern on the Left -- the normative Left, not just the "far" Left -- that denies the obvious when it comes to Islamic terrorism. Take, for example, Maj. Nidal Hasan, who murdered 13 fellow soldiers and tried to murder the 32 others whom he wounded...

    ...There is a perfectly clear pattern on the left – the normative left, not just the "far" left – that denies the obvious when it comes to Islamic terrorism. Take, for example, Maj. Nidal Hasan, who murdered 13 fellow soldiers and tried to murder the 30 others whom he wounded at Fort Hood, Texas. For days after the murders, liberal-left commentators and mainstream media reports attributed Hasan's mass murders to everything but his Islamic beliefs – even though it was known that he yelled out "Allahu Akbar" ("Allah is the Greatest") just as he began his shooting. As "Hardball's" Chris...

    Rush Limbaugh, the leader of the free world has been under attack of late for just being a great American and a fighter for Founding Fathers ideals. The Progressives and Liberals in the media and in government office are seeking maximum damage (to cover themselves) by slandering Rush's character and his objection to this unconstitutional bill. When they do this they are not just going after Rush, but they are also going after the American people who love and cherish freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The Liberal, State-Run Media and their allies have been working feverishly for years...

    You’ve probably heard of Geert Wilders, the “far right” Dutch politician currently on trial in Amsterdam for offending Islam. But have you heard of Guy Earle? He’s a Canadian stand-up comedian currently on trial in Vancouver for offending lesbians. Two lesbians in particular. They came to a late-night comedy show he was hosting and got a table near the stage. They were drunk, and began disrupting the act, and so he did the old Don Rickles thing and put down the hecklers. So, naturally, the aggrieved party went to the British Columbia “Human Rights” Tribunal, and Mr Earle has now...

    Texas for Sarah Palin ^ | March 25, 2010 at 7:05 AM CDST | Josh Painter
    * The Left and its lamestream media lapdogs have launched a full-scale, coordinated attack on Republicans, TEA Parties and Sarah Palin using Alinsky's tactics and the Big Lie theory in an effort to associate political opponents of President Obama and Congressional Democrats as racists and inciters of violence. Our colleagues Adrienne Ross, Ron Devito, Karen Allen and Ian Lazaran (here and here) have ably addressed what the Left is up to and the lack of substance in their arguments. To their lists of examples of the Left inciting violence, we would like to add two more. The first example comes...

    The rise of the Left and godless Liberalism in America has been slowly but ever rising since the 1920’s until today, where it is at a fever pitch. The Left has always sought to make war with America’s Judean/ Christian values (moral and spiritual) by imposing their secular and godless immorality on the American culture. They are Constitutional apostates and, like a parasite, they have twisted the U.S. Constitution in support of their Machiavellian agenda. They have been relentless in their pursuit to totally secularize our American Culture and heritage. Iconic leftist leaders such as Margaret Sanger, Roger Baldwin, John...

    Earlier this week the left went into full attack mode against Governor Palin after she revealed in a speech that her family had been given medical treatment in Canada when she was a young child. Neglecting all the facts of her story, left-wing blogs, media types, and even congressmen put out a barrage of hit pieces dedicated to painting Governor Palin as some sort of “hypocrite.” The hits were well defended in the Palin blogosphere along with other rationalsites. Even a writer from Esquire felt the need to defend the governor after witnessing the lack of any damning evidence coupled...
