Democratic Politicking, Old and New

The energetic dispatch with which liberals throw -ism charges at conservatives and Republicans is no surprise, and the targets are right to invoke civic principles in response. But sometimes it’s better to raise the other side’s past as a worthy contrast to its degraded present. This isn't how Democratic politicians have always talked.

Our House Divided: Multiculturalism vs. America

Many conservatives did not see that Trump had framed the 2016 election as a choice between two mutually exclusive regimes: multiculturalism and America. What I call “multiculturalism” includes “identity politics” and “political correctness.” If multiculturalism continues to worm its way into the public mind, it will ultimately destroy America. Consequently, the election should

The Left Trashes the Constitution: Sacking the Senate

On the morning of March 16, 1916, with World War I already raging in Europe but America still neutral, the Mexican bandito Pancho Villa led a military raid on the dusty border town of Columbus, New Mexico.

In Defense of Americanism

The Left has never understood what made “Make America Great Again” resonate with so many people. We heard their mystification at the notion loud and clear from Democrat front runner for 2020, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who actually said, “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.”

Democrats Have Become the Party of ‘Basic White Bitches’

Sometime around 2009, the term “basic bitch” or—with extra salt—“basic white bitch” began to creep into common American parlance. In essence, it means “a female who conforms to her surroundings and claims she is unique.” The more clueless she is about her basic tastes, the more basic she is. And as with all
