The Anti-‘Anti-Racist’ Professor

Donald Douglas has been a professor of history and political science at California’s Long Beach City College for 20 years, and for the past decade or so he has been besieged by leftist trolls because he is a conservative who blogs at American Power. Under the terms of identity politics, Professor Douglas counts toward his […]

The Pro-Hamas Mob in L.A.

Two weeks ago, Professor Donald Douglas of American Power covered a Communist anti-police rally in Anaheim. Today, Donald took his camera to the streets of downtown Los Angeles, where the same crew — the Stalinist splinter sect known as A.N.S.W.E.R. — helped organize an anti-Israel march and rally that was full of vile and hateful […]

Commies in Anaheim?

ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) is a front for the Marxist revolutionary Workers World Party. This is simply a fact, but a fact routinely omitted from media coverage of ANSWER protests. This was the case in California, where the local CBS affiliate deliberated ignored the communist orientation of this weekend’s “march against police […]

If @TaraDublinRocks Didn’t Exist, Would @AmPowerBlog Have to Invent Her?

My friend Donald Douglas may not be the most right-wing professor in California, but he’d certainly be in contention for the prize. In fact, I’m reasonably sure that a majority of university administrators in California would outlaw Professor Douglas’s American Power blog as a “hate crime,” if they could. (“Damn that First Amendment!”) After Professor […]

Portrait of a Stalker Troll: @Repsac3, Also Known as Walter James Casper III

Professor Donald Douglas has spent years fighting one particularly obsessed troll, Walter James Casper III, who might actually out-rank Bill Schmalfeldt in the Stalker Hall of Shame, because Casper has been cyberstalking Douglas for more than five years. Among the significant characteristics of cyberstalkers is the disproportionality of their obsessions. Professor Douglas is not an academic […]

Even in Deep-Blue California, ObamaCare Still Inspires Deep Doubts, Poll Finds

Donald Douglas points out that President Obama got nearly 60 percent of the vote in California last year, but the president’s signature health-care program is still widely unpopular there: Sixty-five percent of respondents said people wouldn’t be able to afford the health insurance they’ll be required to have under the law’s individual mandate. Forty percent […]

Did SiteMeter Commit Suicide?
UPDATE: It’s Working Again, But Unfortunately, My Traffic Sucks

As of right now, it’s dead. Donald Douglas at American Power and Doug Ross at Director Blue both report that the best, easiest-to-use traffic analytics site failed to renew its domain registration, an error that would require a special kind of stupidity. Let’s all say a prayer that they can get it fixed, because without SiteMeter, I […]

Chick-Fil-A Not Exactly ‘Reeling From Backlash’ Against Common-Sense Attitude

by Smitty Let’s see if we can break this down: Chick-Fil-A is a business. Businesses (especially those whose owners build them on their own) rather fancy having customers. Practices which don’t lead to customers (homosexuality, Origenism, beastiality, whatever) merit rejection. Anecdotally, the local Chick-Fil-A is wall-to-wall customers all the time. via American Power Update: Daily […]
