Teen Mom’s Ex: ‘Sometimes I Don’t Even Know If I Know Who She Is Anymore’

  Kailyn Lowry is despicable trash, and I know every reader must be wondering: “Who the heck is Kailyn Lowry and why should I even care?” In 2011, she became one of the stars of the MTV series Teen Mom 2. Trashy reality shows are the MTV “brand” since the network stopped playing music videos […]

General Kelly, You Clearly Don’t Understand How “Progress” Works

by Smitty This is precisely the sort of scurrilous, retro-warrior thinking that Political Correctness was supposed to squash: Kelly, who has been a Marine for 45 years and served three tours in Iraq, said the sole basis for change in the military should be whether the change will make units more lethal. We no longer […]

Marriage Matters

Melissa Braunstein (@slowhoneybee on Twitter) is one of the handful of conservatives — along with Christina Hoff Sommers and Ashe Schow — who work the feminism beat on a full-time basis. She has an excellent article at The Federalist about the A&E series “Married at First Sight”: Jann Gumbiner, a licensed psychologist and clinical professor […]

Further Thoughts on ‘Diversity’ and the Ritual Suicide of American Culture

The previous post about Sam’s Club CEO Rosalind Brewer’s comments on corporate “diversity” was 900 words, which is but the tip of a vast iceberg of what I could say on this subject. Diversity is one of those “glittering generalities” — like Equality and Progress and Science — that function in public discourse as a […]

Political Correctness Is A Medieval Shield Trying To Stop A Hellfire Missile

by Smitty Instapundit points to umair haque’s introductory essay, “How Political Correctness Failed Liberalism“. I guess it’s a series, and maybe I’m jumping way ahead. But here is a taste: The question is: why? What caused the decline? We may attribute it to many causes, and surely many have contributed. But one above all strikes […]

Quotable Jonah

by Smitty What I find interesting is that many of the same people who clutch their pearls at the mere suggestion that Islamic terrorism has anything to do with — oh, what’s the word again? — oh right: Islam, seem to have no problem making the case that “Christian terrorism” is like a real thing. […]

Saluting Brandon Morse’s Valiant Struggle With Testosterone-Driven Guilt

by Smitty An excellent piece sending up the abject, slack-jawed idiocy of our morally degenerate Left: It started innocently enough. The local university was holding seminars about the gender wage gap, and Gwendalin was a guest speaker. Her feminine wisdom is beyond my comprehension. Naturally, I attended, not only to support my partner, but to […]

A Transformative Figure Could Offer New Hope. Such A Figure, If Found, Would Require The Power Of Jesus, Though.

by Smitty Just another installment in the occasional “Ain’t it funny when they reject the truth and everything comes up false?” series. Via Instapundit, Politico.eu has “The decline of the French intellectual” For a snippet: The disintegration of Marxism in the late 20th century left a void which was filled only by postmodernism. But the […]
