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

    redstate.com ^ | 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,...

    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....

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

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...

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...

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...

    If you wish to see an enjoyable evening with friends become quite animated, then overly hostile, and end in exacting bitterness, ask those in attendance to choose between the following. As an individual citizen, is it more American to believe that you have a personal responsibility to be personally accountable for your actions, and those of your family? Or is it more American to believe that you should wait for the giant collective to take care of you? This did not use to be a controversial concept. Until liberals decided that power is more highly coveted than freedom. Once they...

    After a year and a half of non-stop from-the-gutter slurs on Sarah Palin, her character and her family, liberals have opened up a new avenue of attack. Not that they intend to abandon their old ways of sliming Sarah. They're just adding a "thoughtful liberal" approach, not unlike the "good cop, bad cop" gambit used by some police departments. Expect to see an increasing number of "thoughtful liberal, deranged liberal" assaults on the former governor of Alaska. Charles M. Madigan -- who describes himself as "liberal leaning" -- demonstrates the "thoughtful liberal" approach with his op-ed in the Sunday edition...

John McCain was damned for picking Sarah Palin who had not finished her first term as governor, and had previously only been elected to local political offices and served on a state commission.Her middle American ‘you betcha’ twang, NASCAR persona, good looks, and occasional deer-in-the-headlines interviews with hostile anchor people, coupled with the kids, conservative creed, Christianity, and 19th century husband, sickened—there is no other word for it— the DC-New York...

    The Left has always had a cavalier attitude toward death. Identified by Sarah Palin as Death Panels in President Obama's Health Care Legislation; the concept relates to much earlier times in the Leftist philosophy. From the writing of Chairman Mao, who is a hero of Anita Dunn and Ron Bloom within the Obama Administration, we are left with keys to his much admired Democrat philosophy concerning death for the commoner as opposed to death for the "Great Heroes", a designation he and most upper level Democrat leaders seem to ascribe for themselves.

Would that it were so. This was a defeat not of the messenger, but of the message—and the sooner progressive Democrats face up to that fact, the better. It's the substance, stupid!

    Lefties have long mocked Christians on the fringe for proclaiming the imminent end of the world and the coming of God. Yokels, bumpkins, knuckle-draggers, Bible-thumpers, crazies, and zealots are but a few of the epithets that have been hurled at End-Times Christians.  It's therefore more than a little ironic -- perhaps divinely ironic -- that many of these same oh-so-worldly liberals have come to embrace their own version of the end times. Theirs, though, hasn't a hint of the divine in it; that would smack of the wrong sort of primitivism and violate their steadfast secularism and their claim to...

    The Origins of ObamismI do not think it will be easy to delay Obamism. It is not just that both houses of Congress are under liberal leadership with ample majorities, with a White House and captive media egging them on. The problem is that now the entire engine of the federal government is harnessed in the most unapologetic way to pushing through a far left agenda. There is no shame, no hesitancy in using the full powers of the state.How does that work out? Without qualification (remember we are in a new age of transparency and ethical reform) votes are...

He conned many peace advocates into voting for him, but now he continues President George W. Bush's military policies.

    The Western political Left famously began its political existence two hundred twenty years ago in the halls of the French Revolutionary Parliament. It proudly declared itself the Party of Liberty. It is now the Party of State control, Liberty’s ancient enemy. Its founders were men and women of great passion. Its heirs, from Europe to America, are so bloodless one sometimes wonders if they are really androids. Once revolutionary progressives, they are now either reactionary oppressors, or apologists for a stultifying status quo. The Left turned into its opposite. Instead of withering away, thereby ushering in an era of radical...

    FP: Andrew Klavan, welcome to Frontpage Interview. I’d like to talk to you today about your journey into and out of the Left. How did you at first become a member of the political faith? Tell us about the beginnings of your intellectual journey. Klavan: Well, I was always a dissatisfied liberal. I just never knew there was anything else to be. I was born Jewish to a mother who worshipped FDR and a father who thought that any Republican victory prefigured the return of Adolf Hitler. That’s not an exaggeration: he thought Republicans were all just Hitler in disguise...

    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...

    The American Thinker ^ | November 24, 2009 | Robin of Berkeley
    When I was in college, I read a book that changed my life. It was Susan Brownmiller's tome, Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape, which explained rape as an act of power, not just lust. What I found particularly chilling was the chapter on war -- how rape is used to terrorize a population and destroy the enemy's spirit. While edifying, the book magnified the vulnerability I already felt as a female. Fear of rape became a constant dread, and I sought a solution that would help shield me from danger. The answer: seek safe harbor within the Democratic...
  • The Western Left Misses the Old Communist East Germany

    Most Germans—polls show, despite current economic difficulties, do not regret the fall of the Wall, the collapse of the Communist regime in the East, and the eventual reunification of their country. What doubts there are, however, come from the ranks of the Western Left, who seem to have the ability to regularly air their arguments in the op-ed pages of The New York Times. I read one such report in the paper’s pages while visiting Berlin, written by Katrin Bennhold and titled “Lessons From the Former East Germany.” Bennhold beings by noting that “Like most people, I had slept through...

    The Jihadis will return. We know this, in the same way that we know about death and taxes. Thanks in large part to the weakening of our defensive efforts under the new administration, there will be further attacks against this country's population, perhaps even worse than those of 9/11.  (This week's attack by Nidal Malik Hasan serves to underline the threat.) When this attack occurs, we will see an end to all the nonsense. Our present drift regarding terror policy is occurring only because Americans have been encouraged to put unpleasant realities at a distance, to live in a dream...
  • Crushing the media: Left's global drive for control

    The Obama administration's un-American attempt to vilify Fox News only increased the network's popularity. But this White House debacle can't be judged in isolation: There's a global leftwing assault on the freedom of information. Intense leftist sentiment in most of the international media isn't enough. Extremists seek total control. The one thing leftists just can't bear is criticism. (Mass murder's fine, but don't stray from the party line.) As early as the French Revolution, the left grasped that a free press is inherently subversive to its doctrines. The Obama administration's aborted Fox hunt simply aligned our government with the hounds...

    Texas for Sarah Palin ^ | October 6, 2009 at 1:00 PM CDT | Josh Painter
    National Review senior editor Jay Nordlinger opines on the increasing injection of partisan politics into sports writing: Sarah Palin comes in for a lot of abuse from sportswriters, as you might expect. Here is an item from Sports Illustrated’s website —the subject is baseball (really): “Imagine for a minute that you had free reign [sic] to add any three players to your team for the second half, while punishing a heated [hated?] rival by tagging them with three more of your choice. That’s basically the essence of this week’s revised format: three players who will heat up post-All-Star break and...

    You know liberals are edging toward a full Jonestown-style meltdown when someone as smart as New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman starts losing it. Last week Friedman worked himself up into a paranoiac frenzy over the tone of some of the criticism Obama and the Democrats have been facing recently.

    Just when you might think capitalism’s global crisis would breathe new life into the left, it’s looking increasingly divided and tired. The reelection of Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany a week ago is highlighting a conservative surge in her country and Europe’s other powerhouse economies - Britain, France, and Italy - where the center-right is either firmly in power or about to get there. What happened? Much of the answer lies in the nature of modern European politics, where even the most ardent conservatives can still embrace social welfare policies that would seem leftist to Americans. And in recent years,...

    David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | September 25, 2009 | John Perazzo
    In recent weeks, Glenn Beck has elevated political/news television to an entirely new level. Without fealty to any particular party, he is shining a light into the dark corners of a political cesspool that has been hidden for too long. He is taking the esoteric and making it accessible; taking the complex and making it simple. The result: Millions of Americans are waking up and beginning to understand, often for the first time, exactly what the left is all about. At the David Horowitz Freedom Center, we’re honored that one of the most vital resources from which Beck draws information...

    Greensboro Rhino Times ^ | September 24, 2009 | Orson Scott Card
    We didn't have political articles by Orson Scott Card for awhile, and here is one with promises of more. For those who don't know who he is: Orson Scott Card is one of the best living Sci-Fi writers. His Ender's series are enormously popular and translated to many languages. His websites attract attention of readers from all over the world.Since 9/11 he wrote many political essays. He is a conservative democrat of a Zell Miller type (there are still a few around) who is upset with hijacking of his party by the Left. He considers himself a moderate, which (some...

    In 2009, Saul Alinsky has been discussed in such a matter-of-fact way that many casual observers have heard of him. The following is a list of Alinsky’s 12 rules for upheaval: RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” RULE...

    If you've ever stood in a pet shop and watched Siamese fighting fish attack their reflection in a glass tank, then you know what it's like to read a fascinating new survey of more than 3,000 religious activists on the left and the right. The survey was published this week just as leaders and foot soldiers of the religious right -- the group most closely identified with religious activism in politics -- gathers for the fourth annual Values Voter Summit in Washington, a weekend of red-meat speechifying and unabashed angling among Republican candidates looking to challenge a suddenly vulnerable Barack...
