Derek Weida Doesn’t Grasp That David Hogg May Not Grasp That The 2A’s Not The Issue

by Smitty Derek is a wounded warrior, trying to cast a Spell of Reflection on the young cameraphile: I’m actually kinda with the anti-gun folk. There’s no need BUT! I’ve learned that the way I live and the things I believe have nothing to do with how others want to live or what they want […]

Have We Reached Peak SJW Yet?

“Everybody with two eyes and a brain could see Zoe Quinn was crazy. Why did Eron Gjoni want to date that tattoo-covered, facial-pierced, mentally ill ex-stripper whose real name is Chelsea Van Valkenburg? I don’t know, but he did, and the consequences were world-historic.” — “Crazy Woman Who Caused #GamerGate Announces She’s No Longer Female,” […]

The ‘Controversial’ Kevin Williamson

  If you want to know what excellent journalism looks like, go read “The White Ghetto,” Kevin D. Williamson’s 2014 travelogue of Appalachia: There used to be two movie theaters here — a regular cinema and a drive-in. Both are long gone. The nearest Walmart is nearly an hour away. There’s no bookstore, the nearest […]

The New New Left and The Great Twerking Meltdown of 2013

by Smitty Instapundit points to Charles R. Kesler in the Clairmont Review of Books, The Old New Left and the New New Left. He resonated with a book I’ve nearly finished.

Look for the ‘Hate’ Label (or, Why Everybody’s a ‘Far-Right’ Extremist Now)

  Who is Kevin Panetta? He is the writer behind a comic book called Zodiac Starforce, which looks a lot like a ripoff of Sailor Moon, but that’s irrelevant to his role as a volunteer with the Thought Police. Panetta got more than 45,000 retweets and more than 80,000 likes for his assertion that disagreeing […]

What Does ‘Homophobia’ Mean?

  The question raised by the #FireColbert controversy goes to the very heart of our 21st-century Culture War over “sexuality”: If I wanted to insult Stephen Colbert, I might have called him a lot of things, but “cock holster” probably wouldn’t have come to mind. By the standards of Stephen Colbert, however, there are no […]

MURRAY-MANIA! Why Are College Kids Going Wild for the Latest Sensation?

      Not since The Beatles played Shea Stadium, perhaps, have mindless mobs of hysterical youth made news by going wild the way Middlebury College kids did last week. It’s not a pounding backbeat or lovable moptops singing four-part harmony that’s driving them crazy these days, however. No, it’s a 74-year-old policy analyst named Charles […]
