Time to deprogram John Stuart Mill

If I might be permitted to quote an old, dead white guy for the benefit of the narrow-minded who in ignorance condemn Western European thought as anathema to all that is right and true: I introduce John Stuart Mill, a Nineteenth Century philosopher upon whose discourses on liberty established a pillar upon which freedom of...

In defense of Qanon's right of free speech

During this wide-ranging campaign by Google and other social media giants to snuff out the ability of some Americans to speak freely, hasn’t anyone wondered what it is they’re saying that is so worthy of being cast into the darkness? Is what Qanon says so much more dangerous that depriving Americans of  conversations and debates upon which our form... Read more »

Parallels between the public shaming by the woke movement and Mao Zedong

No, the public shaming that the Chinese Red Guard used to force conformance under the regime of communist murderer/tyrant Mao Zedong is not the same as the public shaming conducted today by the Woke Dictators. But the similarities are well worth noting. As in this video. If this doesn’t scare you, then you have no understanding... Read more »

Some liberals chuck their values by turning on pandemic protesters

Once–a half century and more ago–liberals adopted public protests as a favorite tool to achieve social change. Martin Luther King deployed tens of thousands of protesters to put the bite on Jim Crow. Jesse Jackson parlayed just the threat of protests to spur equal employment opportunity. John Kerry fought in and then against the Vietnam War,... Read more »

A leftist, not a righty, was the mass shooter in Dayton

With denunciations and accusations flying back and forth about who’s to blame for the mass killings in El Paso and Dayton, more examples of media favoritism and unfairness rained down on the public. Buried in nearly all the reporting, editorializing and commentating was the fact that the Dayton shooter was an out-and-out Leftist. Even the most numb-skulled,... Read more »

Pulitzer Prizes mug America's Heartland--again

Not to whine about it, but if we use today’s progressive standard for achievement, America’s Midwest and Heartland are being denied their fair share of Pulitzer Prizes that are annually handed out to newspapers for high quality journalism. I’m not in favor of using the progressive standard that requires that every group is entitled to an equal share... Read more »

Illinois liberals hope to gut Roe v. Wade

It is a betrayal of everything that liberals have stood for. Liberals themselves will be astonished to read this, but they only need to read Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion, to  understand why the “Reproductive Health Act” (Introduced as HB2495 in the Illinois Legislature) would fatally wound the decision’s protections of the...

Planned Parenthood is just another rich special interest group trying to buy the mid-term elections

Who’s that? The biggest spender in this election cycle is the Las Vegas Sands (i.e.casino mogul Sheldon Adelson) who is giving Republicans and conservatives 100 percent of the  $56.7 million its pouring into political campaigns. Fie! Never mind that coming in third, is Tom Steyer‘s total contribution of $50.2 million, all of it going to Democrats and liberals. Well, you’d... Read more »

Women, just shut up, why don't ya?

The hypocrisy of Democrats never ceases to amaze. Here’s the latest episode, as reported by CNN: Sen. Mazie Hirono [D-Hawai] said her message to men in this country is to “just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change” following the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. If... Read more »

'Progressives are not served here'

Nor are Planned Parenthood employees and supporters. Nor are people who voted for President Barack Obama. Nor is anyone from the fake news media. If we are to celebrate, as the left is, Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the Red Hen restaurant, for asking presidential press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave her establishment because as she said, “This feels...
