I just watched this press conference/release from Milo about his free speech week at Berkeley. Depending on the detailed facts, it could be very interesting. If Berkeley really has gone the road of trying to find criminal complaints in order to intimidate their own students due to ideological differences, then that is really bad. To […]

The first time I saw Jeremy, it was at my old junior high school. One thing after another had happened that day, and I found myself at six PM delivering a bunch of soda to a dance in the cafeteria. I made eye contact with him, a long look, just as the music started up. […]

I’m Still with Milo

 

It’s whiplash-inducing how fast Milo had been tossed under the bus.

Before judging, make sure you know all the facts. Unfortunately too many people on the right (mea culpa, I’m as guilty of this as most) take the liberal headlines at face value and recoil from certain individuals. This happened with Mike Flynn and now it’s happening with Milo. In both cases people have made judgments based on partial information, which is what the other side wants. It isn’t for nothing that the late Andrew Breitbart referred to this as “war.”

Media Admits ‘Hysteria,’ CPAC and Milo, Curious Presidential Rankings

 

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to ‘Face the Nation’ host John Dickerson admitting the media are responsible for their own credibility problem by getting things wrong and engaging in “hysterical” coverage. They also groan as the nation’s largest gathering of conservatives gives the highest-profile speaking slot to Milo Yiannopoulos before rescinding it in a swirl of controversy. And they examine C-SPAN’s rankings of all former presidents and find several curious decisions.

Milo Uninvited to CPAC

 

Well, that was quick. A message from ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp:

Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation of Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

This is a post I ran across on Facebook. It was written by a ‘friend of a friend of a friend’ and has over 800 “shares.” I’ll let the piece speak for itself and only say that it gives us a revealing window onto how the left justifies destruction and its illiberal ends. I’m keeping it behind the […]

The antifas got the lion’s share of attention, but it’s interesting to hear what the non-lawbreaking protesters were saying. The speaker is a teacher at a Berkeley middle school and is active in the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary. More

Music, Milo, and Pin-Ups of the Heart

 

Conservatives are not exhibitionists. But real Americans value real-life experience. Which means, if you write, putting your real life on display. I was thinking this as I read @therightnurse’s recent, very frank post on fibromyalgia, written with a kind of directness I’m quite honestly not brave enough to attempt in front of a full audience.

Like many children with a musical ear, I used to improvise at the piano a lot. The impromptus weren’t technically brilliant – I was (and still am) clumsy at the keyboard – but you could always tell a piano what you really thought, and it wouldn’t judge you. Instead, it would make music for you, music which could be judged, if there was anyone around to judge it (and often there was not), for itself alone. Some found the music beautiful, some found it annoying, but in either case, the music could be valued for itself rather than for the experience of the one who made it. For a shy child, that was mostly an asset.

Trump Killed Fidel

 

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for November 28, 2016 it’s the Trump Killed Fidel edition of the show! Trump stuns the world winning the big election and just like that Fidel exits stage left to his eternal reward. Coincidence? We think not. We discuss how finally Fidel’s place in history is well-urned. Yuk, yuk. Should the Cuban government have kept their glorious leader in corporum eternus in the manner of Castro’s inspiration and guide V.I. Lenin (who continues to greet tourists to this day in his subterranean mausoleum)? Might an embalmed Fidel have come in handy as the greeting face at the future Havana Disney World’s Yesterday Exhibit? We’ll discuss.

And, why do liberals continue to whine and moan in utter hysteria over Trump and what can we do to get them to keep it up forever? Todd tells the story of a colleague who forwards all manner of diatribe to him – including a hilarious piece by Milo Yiannopoulos entitled Here’s Why There Ought to Be a Cap on Women Studying Science and Maths, the humor of which appears to have eluded said colleague. We’ll talk about Milo’s argument and the perspective of Nobel Prize Winner Tim Hunt regarding which Mike giving his informed scientific opinion.

Recently we’ve had Milo Yiannopoulos’s evocative visage at the top of a thread about the threat of Alt-Right. I gather from the thread that the Alt-Right (a thing I’d never heard of) veers into racism, antisemitism, white supremacism, and sexism. Really? If it does, Milo should not be there. I only stumbled into Milo on YouTube […]
