CNN’s Maoism Should Be a Wakeup Call on Leftist Intolerance

In the ultimate display of irony-averse stupidity, Fraud News Network CNN threatened an American citizen on this fourth of July. The occasion was the now-infamous GIF tweeted out by President Trump, which shows Trump tackling and beating a wrestler on Wrestlemania.

If Speech is Violent, What Next?

In the aftermath of the infamous Battle for Berkeley, the subsequent debacle surrounding Ann Coulter’s invitation to the University of California’s flagship campus, not to mention the attempted infidel-stoning of Charles Murray at Middlebury and the rioting that forced Heather Mac Donald to speak to a mostly empty room at Claremont McKenna College,
