Romancing Reactionaries: Andrew Sullivan, the Left, and Not Getting It

“Donald Trump is not being reasonable…. But, then, man does not live by reason alone, fortunately. Trump, who believes that excess can be a virtue, is as American as Manhattan’s skyline, which expresses the Republic’s erupting energies. He says the skyscraper is necessary because it is unnecessary. He believes architectural exuberance is good

Who are the Real “Snowflakes,” Leftists or Conservatives?

The country is in a new era. Unfortunately, far too many of those who have grown comfortable as prominent spokespersons of the “conservative” media either don’t or won’t notice this. These self-avowed “conservatives”—they have been on radio and television airwaves for years—continue to prattle on as if it was 1994. They continue to

The Hellscape of an SJW’s “City in Speech”

A curious document has begun to make the rounds on social media. The “Alternatives/Substitutes for Problematic Language” (you now need to request permission to view the document . . . hmmm) is a remarkably candid distillation of what the Social Justice/campus Left in particular and the political Left more broadly have been agitating

Differ with the Southern Poverty Law Center? You’re Evil!

How many far-left groups inspire violent physical attacks on mainstream advocacy organizations or intellectuals and yet still manage to maintain a more or less squeaky-clean image in the media? Chances are you’d be hard pressed to name more than one group―in this case, the highly influential and affluent Southern Poverty Law Center headquartered

No Guilt This Time

I have given up on discussing the ascendance of Donald Trump with anyone who didn’t vote for him. They are too hard in their denunciation. A mild suggestion that the Democratic Party went so far into identity politics that it pushed people toward a leader outspokenly tired of political correctness leads at most

What “Make America Great Again” Really Means

Donald Trump’s wholly unprecedented political disruption and victory is still working itself out and will surely reverberate in the public’s consciousness for years to come. It also added a new phrase to our national political vocabulary: “Make America Great Again.” The press, the Left, and the anti-Trump faction of the conservative Right want

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Ridiculous ‘100 Days’ Report

The Southern Poverty Law Center is at it again. At the hundred-day mark of President Trump’s administration, the center has released a report that purports to expose the rampant “white nationalism” the president and his “alt-right” advisors have unleashed upon the nation. Instead of judging President Trump’s actual record, the report rehashes left-wing

A Retrospective on Trump’s First 100 Days, Part 1

Author’s note: This article has been prepared in line with the factual standards employed by CNN and Buzzfeed. Any “fake news,” therefore, cannot be present. President Trump’s first 100 days have come to their end, and good God, have they been eventful. So eventful, in fact, that it’s doubtful Washington will cease having

European Anti-Americanism and the Republican Party

Let me take you back to the Year of Our Lord 2012, when President Obama was running against Republican presidential nominee, Governor Mitt Romney. During the second presidential debate, which focused on foreign policy, the sitting president twice delivered a line that would live in infamy. Obama mocked Romney’s aggressive stance on Russia,
