The Racist Left Resurrects Jim Crow

uring the 1960s civil rights movement, African Americans and their supporters risked their lives for equality and liberty. Some died in the struggle. One of the chief goals of the movement’s courageous and truly peaceful protests was the end of governmentally imposed and oppressive Jim Crow laws mandating racial segregation. Certain the moral conscience of […]

The Racist Left Feels Entitled to Riot

vents have compelled lifelong swamp denizen Joe “Joey Basement” Biden to scurry into the sunlight and read from a teleprompter. In a duplicitous performance worthy of Pravda, Biden blamed the leftist riots roiling Democratic “governed” cities on—spoiler alert—President Trump and his “right-wing” supporters. Attempting to dispel any doubts about his newfound concern for the lives, […]

The Left Stands Athwart the Tide of History, Yelling ‘Cancel!’

n the middle of the 20th century as traditional liberalism neared its zenith with President Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society,” William F. Buckley said, “a conservative is someone who stands athwart history, yelling ‘Stop,’ at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it.” […]

No Laughing Matter

n Shakespeare, it is often not the nobles but rather the jester, alone, who has the perspective and the permission to see and speak the truth. In many ways, it is no different today. The preening political class teems with the timorous and the buffoonish, while a professional comedian has let slip his mask of […]

The Left’s ‘Trump Won’t Split’ Riff

he Left projects more than a drive-in movie theater. The latest case in point is the febrile effort to stoke the “Trump won’t split” riff. The Hill on Monday offered a prime example of this regressive riff, this time emanating from MSNBC columnist Mike Barnicle during an appearance on “Morning Joe.” Fraught with intimations of […]

Malcontents in the Middle?

t is axiomatic that the middle of the political spectrum is where electoral majorities are made. The middle is where the independent voters who decide elections reside. The middle is where both parties spend the bulk of their time assessing and seducing. The middle is what both parties claim to be trending their way—or, risibly, […]

‘Systemic Racism’: The Perfect Excuse

magine the perfect excuse for political failure. Everyone complicit in the failure would need to agree upon this perfect excuse and give it throaty amplification, preferably executed in unison whenever circumstances required it. Forging such a consensus would not be too difficult, given the perpetrators preference for the collective over the individual and their common […]

Two Important Questions for White Democrats in 2020

he current rage for cultural Marxism, notably its critical race theory trope that America is “systemically racist,” causes many problems for the Left and, in particular, its presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden (a.k.a., “Joey Basement”) as well as other Democratic office seekers. By arguing America is systemically racist, the Left is asserting that America was […]

What a Great Time to Be President!

hose who seek the presidency have many reasons for doing so, but anyone who seeks the nation’s highest office hopes to make his mark as a leader of our free republic. For some presidents, the times provide less difficult challenges to surmount, and history little notes their tenure; for other unfortunate souls, events overwhelm them, […]

The Left Wants to Distract Us from a Choice in 2020

n Washington, D.C.’s Lafayette Square during the Left’s latest attempt to create “Year Zero” by erasing American history, the less-than-peaceful protestors endeavored to create a “Black House Autonomous Zone” (BHAZ). As is their destructive wont, they defaced St. John’s Episcopal Church and a statue of President Andrew Jackson. Before they could topple the statue of […]

Check Your Radical Privilege

n the taxpayer-funded, cushy corridors of leftist academe, the radically chic proselytizers of hatred smugly define their concept of “White Privilege”: If you don’t need to care about a societal problem, it is because of your white privilege. (The shorthand for “White privilege” is simply “privilege,” because 1619.) By pouring this racist tenet of cultural […]

Unmasking the Pandemic Masquerade

irst, pandemic policymakers averred masks weren’t useful in stopping the spread of COVID-19. Now, these authoritarians in government, health care, and the media are demanding citizens wear masks. What gives? Throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, by their own admissions and actions, the pandemic policymakers have been wrong. Egregious and injuriously errant models regarding mortality and hospitalizations; […]

Only You Can Save the Limousine Liberals!

n a blockbuster first, B.S. News virtuously presents a public service announcement, because never have the stakes been greater for your betters. During the COVID-19 pandemic governmental lockdowns, it is easy to forget the victims of another governmental fiat. But U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) can never forget these victims. Thanks to the Speaker’s […]

A Pandemic of Illogic

hen dealing with politicians, the less logical the statement or action, the more political the statement or action. This truism is notably evident as we contend with the pandemic of COVID-19 and its attendant pandemic of illogic. For example, Governors Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich.), and Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.), have instituted continuing lockdowns—some of […]
