The Genocidal Elite, Part III: The Trail of ‘White Tears’

Sarah Jeong and her defenders in the media truly have given America a gift. Where once it was only dark speculation that media elites, at best, are ambivalent toward openly genocidal and bigoted statements about white Americans, now we are certain that these sentiments exist. We know, too, that the most common defense

The Genocidal Elite, Part II: The Pains in South Africa

Ask any social justice leftist about the tweets by the New York Times’ disgraceful new hire Sarah Jeong, and once you’ve got them off all the red herrings about Trump/white supremacy/fascism/incoherent screaming, you will get an answer along the lines of, “Come on, Jeong’s tweets are just the cathartic way that social justice

The Left’s Real Problem: It Can’t Buy SCOTUS

As signs point to an easy confirmation for President Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, #TheResistance has entered full “chicken with its head cut off” mode.

Longtime readers of this site will know that I am no fan of the tech industry. Over the years, I have criticized Google for its censorious behavior, Facebook for fostering an “always online” culture of hypersensitiveness, Amazon for trying to seize the US government’s intelligence assets, and Twitter for just being terrible, period. I have long warned

Hearing Evil Out

William F. Buckley once famously quipped of Robert F. Kennedy’s continued refusal to come on Firing Line, “Why does bologna reject the grinder?” Today, the motto of our purported mainstream journalists appears to be that the grinder should reject bologna because the grinder shouldn’t give bologna a platform.

So after getting attention from everyone from Kurt Schlichter to the Drudge Report, to even Rush Limbaugh, the case of the UK government's disturbing attempt to "disappear" Tommy Robinson has become an international sensation.

Young Americans for Folly

It was the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) convention of 1968, and a conservative civil war was in the process of erupting. A vocal faction of libertarian students, incensed at YAF’s ongoing support for the Vietnam War, burned their draft cards in protest, which prompted a quite literal floor fight with the traditionalist

Anarcho-Tyranny in the UK

Disturbing news has come to light from the United Kingdom this morning, courtesy of author and journalist Lauren Southern, and of Cassandra Fairbanks at Gateway Pundit. Apparently, after being arrested while live on film, for nothing more than covering a trial of suspected participants in a rape grooming gang, the controversial anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson
