Virtual Virtue

It is not healthy for a society to live two lives that are antithetical, as America has been doing in recent decades. Disillusionment with government and popular culture arises at anger over two entirely different realities. One truth is politically correct and voiced on the news and by the government. It is often

The Un-P.C. Reason for Labor Day

Ah, Labor Day! For many, this national holiday is chiefly a bittersweet celebratory marker: a line in the sand (preferably at some winsome beach) between the season of recreation and the seasons of toil. Summer is packing up, autumn and winter are about to schedule their arrival. Yet Labor Day is also something

Media Normalizes Political Violence by Mainstreaming Antifa

Since February’s violence in Berkeley, which stopped a scheduled speech on campus by Milo Yiannopoulos, the media and the political Left’s relationship with Antifa has been similar to that of your favorite codependent couple; they’re either publicly and passionately in love with each other or loudly breaking up for-the-very-last-time and taking out restraining

Republicans Cower in Charlottesville’s Aftermath

Last month's events in Charlottesville have given our Republican elected officials an excellent opportunity to educate the public on the violence of the hard Left and sources of their funding. Sadly, most are squandering the opportunity to make use of their bully pulpit and shed light on these disturbing realities. President Trump was

Inebriates of Virtue

At Yale, where censorship never sleeps, the Committee of Public Safety—no, wait, that was Robespierre’s plaything. Yale’s new bureaucracy is called the “Committee on Art in Public Spaces.” Its charge? To police works of art on campus, to make sure that images offensive to favored populations are covered over or removed. At the

Censorship: Another Cheap Chinese Import We Don’t Need

Chinese censors nearly won again. Cambridge University Press last week confirmed it would comply with requests from Chinese authorities to block access in China to certain articles published in The China Quarterly, a top peer-reviewed journal. Three days later, the publisher reversed course, announcing it would keep the journal intact, and make the

The Proverbs of Pelosi

In her attempt to deny the free speech rights of a group called "Patriot Prayer," Nancy Pelosi argued that the group should not be granted a permit to hold a prayer rally on public lands because you can't "yell wolf in a crowded theater." Below, American Greatness' resident poet, Joe Long, memorializes the howling stupidity and mixed

While They Rage, Trump Builds

What’s the highest pleasure known to man? Christian theologians talk about the visio beatifica, the “beatific vision” of God. Alas, that communion is granted to very few in this life. For the common run of mankind, I suspect, the highest pleasure is moral infatuation. Like a heartbeat, moral infatuation has a systolic and diastolic

The Kristol Crackup

In a Venn diagram of NeverTrump conservatives and anti-Trump liberals, a photo of Bill Kristol would appropriately fill the growing intersection of the two. Like many NeverTrumpers, Kristol has abandoned any attempt to promote conservative ideals and policies and instead is focused merely on destroying Donald Trump’s presidency. While the NeverTrumpers’ daily whipping
