The Riot Ideology

Yesterday, I mentioned Fred Siegel’s The Future Once Happened Here in connection with the Trayvon Martin case. Siegel’s book is one of those timeless classics — like Christopher Lasch’s The Culture of Narcissism and Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed — that I frequently recommend as guides to understanding important social phenomena more deeply.

Sterling sends along this news item as fair warning for my redheaded son: Derrill Rockwell told police he grabbed his rifle, the .22-caliber he kept handy to kill rodents around the house, about 5 a.m. Oct. 5 and walked outside to confront it.

Olbermann’s Career: The First Time as Tragedy, the Second Time as Farce

Huffy self-righteous liberalism is not a rare commodity, and the supply greatly exceeds the demand, so Keith Olbermann’s belief that he had cornered the market on progressive bombast was bound to lead him to a sorry end sooner or later: For nearly a year now, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have been building their liberal cable news […]

Are Nancy Pelosi And Harry Reid Racists, Or Something?

by Smitty Over at the Daily Caller, I think somebody’s abject, utter, despicable incompetence may be showing:What a gross dereliction of duty.
