I’ve never been called a racist. If I were, I admit that it would be upsetting. But @gossamercat brought up the fact on @richardfulmer’s post that many of us feel obligated to defend ourselves when we are attacked; it’s only natural to protect ourselves and our reputations.
But what if we didn’t “bite”? What if we responded by not responding or making an off-handed acknowledgement? I think it would drive others crazy. Even on Twitter. Let me give you a couple of examples:
Civil rights activist Bob Woodson joined host Ben Domenech to discuss the racism behind the left’s recent “anti-racist” activism. Woodson is the Founder and President of the Woodson Center, where you can learn more about his work on the 1779 Project.
The left has finally begun to eat its own. Woodrow Wilson, the first Progressive Democrat president of the United States, who started all the bad ideas of administrative experts ruling over citizens, has been erased from Princeton, where he was president before a very short stint as the Governor of New Jersey, springboard to the White House. President Trump should not be opposing this too much. Rather, he should be pointing out leftist hypocrisy, especially their support for real butchers and mass murderers. He should also hammer on the fact that Wilson was a PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT, just like the current “progressives.”
Ricochet member Dr. Bastiat wrote on June 18, 2020, “call me when you’re serious.”
How the party of Woodrow Wilson, Bull Connor, Robert Byrd, etc etc etc has escaped the ire of the Black Lives Matter movement is a mystery to me.
Now, its the grounds and the architecture called into the question of appropriate use, even if they passed through many hands down through the years. Down with Plantation Weddings! Preview Open
So sayeth the great Progressive Leading Light Star Tribune! I look forward to “The Conservative Case for Destroying Mount Rushmore” article in an upcoming issue of National Bulwark Review. Preview Open
Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America kick off the week with three crazy martinis. They begin with the death of Jeffrey Epstein, the protocols that officials admit weren’t followed, and the blizzard of conspiracy theories that immediately erupted. They also roll their eyes as media and political figures on the left declare that voting for President Trump makes those voters racists by association. And Alexandra gets a kick out of Joe Biden stating there are “at least three” genders while pointing out Biden can never win the “Woke Olympics” and shouldn’t be trying to.
Once again the country has found itself reeling from mass shootings, this time two in a matter of hours. (Wait a minute, hold everything. It must be stipulated right up front that we aren’t going to count the multiple shootings and murders that occur with numbing regularity in Chicago, Baltimore and virtually every other large, […]
Welcome dear podcast addicts to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for May 1, 2019 – Workers of the World Unite! You have nothing to lose but your CHAINS!!!). This is the $2T Podcast edition of the podcast (from the department of redundancy department). We are your hosts, radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa.
This week, Chuck and Nancy are giddy that they went to the White House, asked for, basically, the store, and DJT (or so they claim) *gave* it to them to the tune of 2 trillion (with a “t”) for our crumbling roads and bridges. (and what else, pray? …or should I say “prey”?).
So here is a 15 second video of our governor refusing to shake the hand of his opponent (I live is SW Va – a land flowing with milk and honey). Much has been made of his ignorant stunt in college. But this video is from 2013 for cryin’ out loud. How is this not […]
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America commend the Trump administration for reinstating sanctions on Iran after rescinding the failed nuclear deal, which the rogue regime did not follow. They also denounce Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth’s Warren’s far-left rhetoric about the criminal justice system and they blame the divisive discourse for the lack of meaningful reforms. And they are frustrated that President Donald Trump tweeted about LeBron James’ intelligence rather than thanking the NBA star for funding education and extolling the benefits of charter schools.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to the indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates and note that none of the charges appear to be connect to the Trump campaign. They also discuss the guilty plea from former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos on charges of making false statements. And they are aghast as a new ad from the Latino Victory Fund paints anyone who supports the GOP candidate for governor in Virginia as racists who want to kill minority children.
Greg Corombos of Radio America flies solo with Jim Geraghty off at the National Review Institute Ideas Summit. Today, Greg applauds Budget Director Mick Mulvaney for challenging conventional liberal and media wisdom on spending and climate change. He also cringes as Venezuela’s socialist government cracks down on bakeries for making unapproved goods for a starving population. And he reacts to the report in the Cal State Long Beach student newspaper that milk is racist.
