The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Democrats Aren’t Hitler, But . . .

Trying to avoid Godwin’s Law here: One of the basic methods of propaganda is reversal — make an accusation against your enemies that is so blatantly false as to be the exact opposite of truth. This technique has become known as “the Big Lie” because of a passage in Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf: “In the […]

‘A Familiar If Odd Accent to City Life’

  Daniel Greenfield at FrontPage Magazine: The New York Times called them “sidewalk ministers” who practice “tough love.” The paper quoted Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center who described them as victims of racism and claimed that they were non-violent. The Washington Post, in its own puff piece on the Black Hebrew Israelites, […]

If you start looking up the hometowns of Grand […]
