Graham Linehan is a hypocrite of the highest order. The British comedy writer best known for his work on The IT Crowd, is standing against freedom of speech, attacking Scottish comedian Count Dankula for his “grossly offensive” joke.

The politics of Black Panther aren’t what you would expect from a movie that has been praised to the high heavens for “diverse” ethnic representation, and its worship by leftist ideologues. Heavy spoilers follow. In contrast to claims that the movie is only intended for an African American audience, the movie stands among one of…

In early January, women took to the streets of America to protest American democracy and caterwaul for rights they already have, and have had for some time.

Janet Bloomfield

President Donald Trump takes his message directly to the people, and the people respond. This is exactly how democracy should be. Scott Adams makes a compelling case that President Trump has achieved the highest approval rating of any President, ever, based on a single measure. “In a free, capitalist country, ‘the economy’ captures all the goodness…

Usually, when you encounter an item with no definitive price tag, it is because the item is absurdly expensive. When a potential customer is forced to ask for the price, the salesman might gauge his wealth, his gullibility, his willingness to part with his money, and a myriad of other things before settling on what…

WRIGHT: A Tale of Two Years, Remembering ...

John C. Wright

AD 2017 was the sweetest year in my memory. But how many 2017’s were there? Imagine if the mighty stream of history, like a river striking an obdurate rock, might be divided in twain. In one universe, perhaps, events as we know them have taken place, but in the nearby parallel universe, Mr. Spock has…

PAMELA GELLER'S YEAR IN REVIEW: Every Single ...

admin

In each of the past few years, I have done an end-of-the-year summary on jihad activity and Islamization in the United States, so that people might better understand the overarching progress of the jihad in the U.S., and connect the dots. After years of shouting into the wilderness, the message hit critical mass in November…

I have 1,000 words to convince you to celebrate Christmas—or, as someone on Facebook recently put it, “The Jesus Myth.” Right. I could try to convince you that Christmas is a fully Christian celebration, having nothing to do with supposed appropriations of pagan festivals, but that presumes that you care about celebrating Christmas as Christian…

WRIGHT: On the Road Home, Keep Christmas ...

John C. Wright

If you are like me, at this season of the year especially, you get homesick for somewhere you’ve never been. Your home, even if it is quite pleasant, does not content you. The feeling haunts you that there is something more to life than merely life. At other times of the year, perhaps you have…

THALES: Turning Empathy Into a Weapon, How ...

Thales

Social Justice is often driven through shame, through a certain desire to appear moral, righteous, and proper to others. If a truth is unpleasant, if it doesn’t sound good rhetorically, it must be dispensed with for sake of appearances, to avoid being publicly shamed as a bad person. This is a concept I’ve long referred…

Net Neutrality will lead to unequal access to the Internet, but it’s no big deal. There is nothing wrong with inequality, as long as everyone can log on. The Twitter hashtag #FucktheFCC emerged as a response to the Federal Communications Commission’s recent decision to rescind Obama-era net neutrality regulations, restoring what FCC Chairman Ajit Pai…
