    As everyone except liberals knows, liberals are just awful. But what many people may not know is that their brainless do-gooding is quite literally destroying our civilization. Here is our list of the top ten leftist delusions that make us cringe our faces off.
  • The Liberal Attack on Our Right to Listen

    American liberals have always professed to believe in tolerance, diversity, and freedom of speech. However, today’s reality is very different. As the Left gained control of the commanding heights of culture and increasingly business across the nation, the new liberal philosophy became freedom for me but not for thee. Consider the saga of Alex Jones, the radio talk show host who manages the website Infowars.com. He is controversial, to say the least, having pushed various conspiracy theories. But then, some left-wing activists attack anyone to the right of Hillary Clinton as a racist and fascist. Apple, Facebook, Spotify, and YouTube...
  • Catholic Teaching on Homosexuality Evil, Says [Former Irish President] McAleese

    The Catholic Church's teaching on homosexuality has been described as "evil" by a former Irish president. Mary McAleese said she was hopeful the Pope would change the church's position on the issue. Pope Francis is due to visit the Republic of Ireland this month for the World Meeting of Families, a major event for the Church. Mrs McAleese, who was president from 1997 to 2011, said she hoped it would be free of "homophobic messages". The Pope's two-day tour will be the first papal visit to Ireland for almost 40 years. 'Exploded that myth'Mrs McAleese made her comments about the...

    Some of you need to cease the denial and accept the harsh reality that the left hates you. It’s a fact, as much as the liberal gaslight gang and the conserva-sissy weakhearts deny it. You can tell that leftists hate you by the way that leftists tell you that they hate you.Take Sarah Jeong, please – hey, the New York Times was happy to get this bitter creep onboard because of her history of virulent racism. The Times saw her hate as a plus, not a negative, an asset, not a liability. You can’t draw any other conclusion – if you...

    Why is it considered "liberal" to compel others to say or fund things they don't believe? That's a question raised by three Supreme Court decisions this year. And it's a puzzling development for those of us old enough to remember when liberals championed free speech -- even advocacy of sedition or sodomy -- and conservatives wanted government to restrain or limit it. The three cases dealt with quite different issues. In National Institute of Family Life Advocates v. Becerra, a 5-4 majority of the court overturned a California statute that required anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers to inform clients where they...
  • Seriously, Who Cares if A Liberal Is Offended?

    Go offend a liberal. It doesn’t matter. The left gets offended over everything. Literally. They will find a reason to be upset about something. The ultimate goal of a leftist is to shut up the opposition. By taking the fifth rule of Saul Alinsky, ”ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” liberals try to shut up anyone with whom they don’t agree. To render the fifth rule ineffective, the recipient of leftist attacks must not care and voice their beliefs. Charles Davis is the dean of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. Recently, a...

    Congratulations, oh most insufferable of generations – against all odds and confounding the experts, you have still somehow managed to make yourselves even more annoying. Apparently, the hep new jive among your tiresome cohort is “Democratic Socialism,” resurrecting a poisonous nineteenth-century political death cult and putting a kicky new spin on it to make it palatable for the suckers. It’s the political equivalent of hipsters who insist vinyl records are superior because they didn’t grow up forced to crank their tunes on that miserable format. The “Democratic” part is some cunning rebranding. Just stick “Democratic” in front of something awful...

    Now the Anti-History movement of the left has a new target. A target as big as a city. A new report from Austin, Texas’s Equity Office about existing Confederate monuments suggested changing the city's name. The report identified several neighborhoods and 10 streets named in honor of the Confederacy or William Barton, a slave owner dubbed the "Daniel Boone of Texas," that could be changed, The Austin American-Statesman reported Friday. Austin’s namesake, Stephen F. Austin - also referred to as the "father of Texas" - opposed efforts by Mexico to abolish slavery in the Tejas province, saying freed slaves would...

    Forget the Russian government — foreign nationals are increasingly gaining the ability to influence American elections more directly. They’re being granted the right to vote. From Boston, where the city council is debating the move, to San Francisco, where noncitizens gained the right earlier this month in school-board elections, jurisdictions are looking to expand the boundaries of the electorate beyond its citizens.

    Liberal-leftism is a mental illness. To find out whether you are afflicted with this deadly and largely incurable condition here is a simple test based on recent events. A man named Faisal Hussain has gone on a gun rampage in Toronto, killing two, wounding 13. [snip] Do you: a) Think of the victims – especially the two fatal casualties (Reese Fallon, 18; and ten-year old Julianna Kozis) – and their heartbroken friends and families. [snip] b) Fabricate a narrative in which the attack has nothing to do with Islam. Call out and vilify anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Reserve all...

    Actor and filmmaker Mark Duplass has apologized for initially praising the right-wing pundit and Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro on Twitter and encouraging his followers to consider following Shapiro, stating that the tweet was a “disaster on many levels.” “I’m really sorry,” Duplass tweeted Thursday morning. “I now understand that I need to be more diligent and careful. I’m working on that. I want to be clear that I in no way endorse hatred, racism, homophobia, xenophobia or any such form of intolerance.” Duplass said the tweet was meant to encourage unity, but admitted “sometimes I move too quickly when...

    And so another notch is marked on the belt of political correctness. This time, it's Papa John himself. John Schnatter has been excommunicated from the company he began in the broom closet of his father's tavern. Since 1984, Papa John's Pizza has become one of the most successful chains in America, with almost 5,000 locations and providing jobs to countless individuals from all facets of society. Schnatter lost it all this week, including his name on a football stadium and a business school. His offense? Referring to irrevocable history about the founder of a competing franchise during a conference call,...

    It has come to pass, that though there are very many and great issues facing our great nation—issues with marked differences—for far too many on today’s left, nothing is of greater importance than matters that impact their efforts at “four [or more] bare legs in a bed.” Like the Epicureans centuries ago, modern liberals have concluded that humanity’s highest good is achieved in physical pleasure—especially sex. If this wasn’t clear before the election of Donald Trump, no less than the day after President Trump took office, Hillary’s hedonists made sure we understood what really matters to those who, as Augustine...

    Would it surprise you to learn that if you were picking a governing philosophy based only on personal satisfaction, many would choose to be conservative? The perks cover everything from a potentially better sex life to the ability to lose a few pounds and a sense of greater meaning in life. Don’t take my word for it; let’s go to polls. Researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles recently reported on a study in the Social Psychological and Personality Science that looked at “five data sets that include representative samples from 16 countries,” finding that conservatives found...

    Antonio Delgado railed against capitalism, rapped about porn, masturbating The Democratic congressional candidate for New York's 19th district, Antonio Delgado, rhymed about watching porn, masturbating, and attacked capitalism in his past life as a "social justice" rapper. Delgado, who is challenging Rep. John Faso (R., N.Y.), released an album under the record label "CD Baby" in 2007. Delgado, whom the New York Times considers "much less progressive" than other Democratic House candidates like socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, once tried to pursue a rap career to advance "radical social change" in the United States.

    Hollywood tends to pack summer with escapist flicks — popcorn movies that have little to do with the real world, unless you consider rampaging dinosaurs a pressing societal problem. But these five socially-conscious films are sneaking into cinemas, and each has something compelling to say. Sorry To Bother You This surrealistic comedy starring Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out) and Tessa Thompson (Creed) is earning rave reviews for wicked social satire that touches on race, class and capitalism. Stanfield plays Cassius Green, a telemarketer in Oakland whose career takes off once he adopts a “white” telephone voice with customers. Reviewer Kam Williams...

    Yield Mary Shelley a kind eye. The first science-fiction novelist had no precedent in avoiding engineering errors. Such was never the point. Shelley's motive was to probe the persona rather than postulate the possibilities. If Shelley's tale contains any glaring technical gaffe, it must be that young Victor Frankenstein possessed knowledge of sinew and collagen that even modern scientists lack. His cadaverous creation might be infused with vigors and nostrums to imbue metabolism, but that would not be enough. In reality, the pathetic being would have torn itself apart attempting to get off the table, leaving nothing on the slab...
