For the sake of “diversity,” a UK group started a science competition for girls. Then, for the sake of “diversity,” they opened up the competition to boys who wanted to participate. Then a boy won, and now the diversity police are left scratching their heads on what to do. Whose “diversity” matters more?
Another day, another leftist committing a fake hate crime… Just in case you were curious, the actual statistics on hate crime in America show that you’re 40 times more likely to accidentally kill yourself than you are to be the victim of a hate crime, and that’s the real reason why leftists feel the need to fake these crimes. There just aren’t enough real crimes to justify their rhetoric.
I always find it interesting when statistics run completely the opposite of the popular narrative…
We’ve said it before, and it bears repeating here: bad things happen when we give the state power to invent new “rights” and begin deciding whose rights are more valuable. A New York couple is facing stiff fines after refusing to host a gay wedding on their private property. The State of New York has essentially decided that if you are among a specific class of people, you can force others to do your bidding.
The left likes to lecture Americans for the sin of “cultural appropriation” at every possible occasion, whether that’s wearing a sombrero or eating the wrong kind of General Tso’s Chicken. But when it comes to iconic American fiction, cultural appropriation is just fine, as long as it’s the white characters being eliminated. CBS’s executives are determined to recast Nancy Drew as a minority…any minority…as long as she’s not white.

I honestly don’t understand Marco Rubio. There are flashes of brilliance from him, especially when he articulates the principles of Conservatism. However, I’m afraid Rubio’s Conservatism isn’t anchored in unwavering faithfulness to the Constitution or individual liberties because sometimes he goes completely off the rails. This is one of those times. Marco Rubio has joined with Democrats, co-sponsoring a bill that would legitimize kangaroo courts on college campuses for rape victims, stacking all the odds in the favor of the accuser and giving the accused very little due process.
Under Islam’s Sharia law, infidels who do not follow Islam are forced to pay a “jizya” tax in order to live alongside the Muslim ruling class. What has happened with the owners of Sweet Cakes Bakery in Oregon is no different. The State of Oregon has decided that their religious beliefs are intolerable, unless the couple pays a fine, and after a long fought legal battle, the couple has finally been forced to cough up $135,000 in “damages” for refusing to participate in a gay couple’s wedding ceremony. The gay community is celebrating this as a victory for “tolerance,” but in doing so, they only prove their own intolerance for refusing to leave this family with sincere religious convictions in peace. The gay couple has inflicted their own version of Sharia on these Christians, forcing their beliefs on them and demanding the jizya for their refusal to lay aside their beliefs.
Man, this story really cracks me up! A man in Muscatine, Iowa, took compassion on a couple of panhandlers he saw on a semi-regular basis and decided that he would offer them a job at his business. When they refused, he decided other people needed to know that the pair were taking advantage of people’s generosity and weren’t interested in improving their situation. He decided to stand next to them with a sign advising people not to give them money.
When the Mizzou protestors launched their short-lived strike and threatened to force a cancellation of a Saturday football game (which would have cost the University upwards of $2 million), there were two big things that didn’t seem to filter through their heads: firstly, that the protests they were joining were based on lies, bad guesswork, and overt racism from the protest organizers; and secondly, that playing football at a university for a scholarship is a privilege that they have to ear…chiefly by playing football. In an effort to remind players of point #2, the Missouri House of Representatives has filed a bill that, if passed, would automatically revoke the scholarships of student athletes who refused to play for reasons other than health.
It never fails that every major holiday with it brings with it another phony outrage from progressives. You see, more often than not, today’s political arguments aren’t about left vs right—they’re about real vs fake! The outrage mob promotes phony racism, phony climate change alarmism, phony economics…and phony sexism. Yes, mistletoe has fallen prey to the feminist outrage mob. But there’s just one problem: the entire idea to campaign against mistletoe was cooked up by trolls on 4chan.
