The Racist Liberal Yankees of Boston

As a Southerner, I enjoyed reading this: Google the phrase “Most racist city,” and Boston pops up more than any other place, time and time again. It may be easy to write that off as a meaningless digital snapshot of what people say about us, and what we say about ourselves — proof of little […]

The Poisonous Fruit of ‘Social Justice’

  Everyone is commenting on this New York Times column in which a black professor offers an argument that could be reduced to a syllogism: Premise A: Donald Trump got elected.

Freedom of Speech Is Genocide and Other Lessons From the 21st-Century University

  Edith Macias became infamous a couple of weeks ago when a viral video showed the University of California-Riverside (UCR) student stealing a “Make America Great Again” cap from another student.

The incident occurred days after a Jewish student at Beloit was targeted by anti-Semitic note […]

Why the South Is Rising Again

  “These Democrats will do whatever they have to stop the president.” “Now they’re making a big deal about statues? Who cares about statues!” That exchange between two guys in a diner in Long Island, N.Y., was overheard by a former Democratic congressman, Steve Israel, who is no fan of Donald Trump, but who is […]

  Toni Airaksinen of Campus Reform reports that Lee Jussim, a Rutgers University psychology professor, has defended Google “manifesto” author James Damore’s controversial statements about male-female differences. Damore “gets nearly all of the science and its implications exactly right,” Professor Jussim says, and suggests that Google has “created an authoritarian atmosphere that has stifled discussion […]

#Charlottesville: The Left Unexpectedly Falls in Love With the Word ‘Terrorism’

Did a cartoon frog inspire a terrorist attack? When Micah Johnson assassinated five police officers in Dallas last year, the Left was eager to evade the most obvious explanation: This was a terrorist act inspired by a hate movement called Black Lives Matter. Fast-forward 13 months, and a white guy named James Fields is accused […]
