Category: What is Progressivism?

Kill the Old

The latest insight from David Hogg, teenage idiot and wannabe revolutionary: “The reason Republicans are successful right now is because they’re empowering young people,” he told me, pointing out that Paul Ryan was 45 when he became Speaker of the House. “Older Democrats just won’t move the f— off the plate and let us take control. Nancy Pelosi is old.” “…and let us...

Reality TV for Pompous Idiots (Season 1, Ep. 1)

Performance art: Progressivism made tangible. Bland hatred for self, life, and the Individual, combined with a snake oil salesman’s chutzpah, in a naked emperor’s play for money and fame — all of it masquerading as the revelation of truths hitherto unimagined. Artifice at the apogee of absurdity, droning on for hours and days, all the while claiming to be more real than Being....

The Net Value of Abortion

Chelsea Clinton, whose voice sounds eerily like her mother’s, was speaking during a stop of something called the “Rise up for Roe Tour,” when she suddenly broke into the Clinton female’s equivalent of song — i.e., an inarticulate, trance-like drone — to praise the great god, Death, as only a Clinton can. “Whether you fundamentally care about reproductive rights and access right, because...

Communist Canada Cleanses Its History

John A. Macdonald was Canada’s first prime minister. In view of his essential role in forging the country’s original constitution and solidifying its status as a unified nation independent of its powerful southern neighbor, he is often and justifiably regarded as Canada’s closest approximation to a founding father. Naturally, then, he and his legacy are being airbrushed from Communist Canada’s revisionist history. You...

Eternal Darkness of the Spotlessly Progressive Mind

Yesterday, I threw in my two cents regarding Sarah Jeong, the “Korean-American” race-obsessed harpy who has just been hired onto The New York Times editorial team — and hired not in spite of her race-obsessed harpydom, but because of it. (The Times has admitted to having examined her Twitter history before hiring her, which means they liked the naked hatred they saw there,...

Okay, I Guess This is What Racism Looks Like

I am one of those anti-political correctness types who eschew the easy road of accusing people of “racism” every time they say something harsh or hyperbolic about anyone who happens not to share the same skin color, or even about a racial group as such. For one thing, I despise the way such -isms always end up being used as smears to destroy...

New Ontario Government Cruelly Cancels Communist Program

Ontario’s newly-elected Progressive Conservative government has killed compassion and caring in Canada forever, by cancelling a “guaranteed basic income” pilot project initiated by the now-defunct Liberal Party politburo of Kathleen Wynne. The purpose of the program, of course, was to increase the degree of government dependency among a population already owned by Big Mother, cradle to grave, physically and psychologically. This program was...

California Democrats for Tyranny

Today I received an e-mail press release from Justice Network, which describes itself as a “California based Social Awareness Organization” (their capitalization — who knows what it means?). It seems they commissioned a poll of committed California Democrats on several popular issues of the moment. The results are not surprising on the surface; but I believe they reveal more than meets the eye....

Toronto Mayor Gets His Gun Violence Problem Backwards

A mass handgun shooting in the city that, in an early example of its typical self-congratulatory and delusional smugness, has long called itself  “Toronto the Good,” has just raised this year’s gun murder tally in the city to 27, with another 82 injured. As HuffPost Canada reports: Just after 10 p.m. ET, gunfire was reported in the Danforth and Logan area, which is...

Economics vs. Political Philosophy

One of my great bugaboos in conversing with my sometime allies in the American conservative movement is their all too frequent infatuation with, and deference toward, free market economic theory. Let me state this as clearly as possible. Economics in the modern form — the form into which it has evolved since, like its sisters among the “social sciences,” it detached itself from...
