Quick Takes: Discrimination and Caring

Senator Tim Kaine (Communist-Va.) claims that President Trump’s moronic tweets urging four lightweight socialist activist congresswomen to go back where they came from “violated federal anti-discrimination law.”  Maybe he’s right. If so, then the United States is already a full-out tyranny, and you can stop the electoral dog-and-pony show right now, and proceed straight to the secret police and gulags. There should not...

Is Trump a Racist?

I have answered this essay’s title question before — I said Trump is not a racist — but the latest brouhaha he has caused with his “go back to where you came from” tweets seems to warrant a revisiting of the issue. Today, I received an e-mail from a long-time reader, asking a question I have seen a lot over the past twenty-four...

My take on Trump’s thought-provoking “Go back where you came from” reflections

Donald Trump is an idiot. We all know that, when we are not lying to ourselves. He is also a vain, megalomaniacal blowhard. We all know that, too. Furthermore, he will do or say absolutely anything that he perceives as being to his advantage at this millisecond — where “his advantage,” given that he is an idiot and a vain, megalomaniacal blowhard, typically...

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...

George Washington, Un-American

When George Washington’s memory has been deemed “unacceptable” to Americans, will America still exist? In the fundamental transformation of any nation, there will be a moment that stands as the symbolic termination of that nation as anything recognizable, and the beginning of a completely new nation unrelated to the old except in name. For example, you will know England is over when Shakespeare...

On Race Language: The Good, The Bad, and The Indifferent

As an addendum to my recent article about the linguistic tyranny of political correctness (read it here), please indulge me in the following rant. In response to the above-mentioned article, a very thoughtful reader e-mailed some of her own reflections and experiences, including the following: In regards to being purely descriptive, and not being potentially racist or some other hateful term, I find...

The World Before Racial Hypersensitivity

Imagine a world in which one can actually describe the human species concretely, as one finds it, without measuring every utterance against the ever-changing barometer of political correctness. Imagine a language that actually communicates positively, naturally, rather than forever masking itself in unnecessary, propagandized euphemism in order to avoid the ultimate progressive sin of “offending” someone’s indoctrinated sensitivity and delicateness. Imagine the freedom...

School Coach Branded Racist For Calling Thugs “Thugs”

Imagine if behind every little thug, there were larger, stronger thugs ready to defend those little thugs against criticism or correction. In this situation, thuggery would always grow, and all defense against it would be futile, until at last most people would  just give up and either join the thugs or hide quietly in their corners all their lives. This self-perpetuating thuggish world...

The Unforced Errors of Knee-jerk Progressive Hatred

A tennis commentator fired by ESPN for supposedly making racially derogatory remarks is suing the network for wrongful dismissal. The details of the case are so ridiculous, and so revelatory of the truly racist mindset of progressive activism, that, given today’s politically correct atmosphere, one can only assume the lawsuit will somehow result in the commentator being sentenced to life in prison. Here are the insane details: Doug Adler,...
