The Other McCain

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

Know-Nothings, Old and New

Maj. Gen. Nathaniel Banks. Let’s revisit some relevant history: “Immigration during the first five years of the 1850s reached a level five times greater than a decade earlier. Most of the new arrivals were poor Catholic peasants or laborers from Ireland and Germany who crowded into the tenements of large cities. Crime and welfare costs […]

Isn’t She Adorable?

  My buddy Benny Johnson, who I’ve known since 2007, posted this photo of himself with Candace Owens at Reagan National Airport. According to Benny, he was running to catch a flight when he bumped into Owens, fresh from her recent congressional testimony, wearing a MAGA hat and carrying “a sizable amount of Chic-fil-A.” When […]

Crazy People Are Dangerous: Insanity Inspired by Racist Clown Meme

  OK, this will require a bit of set-up: “Honkler the Clown” is an account that might legitimately be called “hate,” although supporters would probably call it “red-pilled,” i.e., cutting through propaganda to expose reality. But we don’t have to do a deep-dive into the ideological content of “Honkler the Clown” right now; the point […]

Woman Arrested in Hate Graffiti Case

  Wednesday, under the headline “Stupid Is as Stupid Does,” I reported on this woman whose crimes were captured on video: The Norman Police Department arrested 45-year-old Allison Johnson in connection to the recent vandalism incidents in both Norman and Oklahoma City this afternoon. Police say she turned herself in for the crimes. Johnson was […]

Democrats Are Self-Destructing

The likes of Rick Wilson are so emotionally overwhelmed by their bourgeois revulsion toward Trump’s uncouth ways that they can’t step back and view the situation […]

The Fake ‘Hate’ Epidemic

  Political paranoia: Portland, Oregon, is a deep-blue city in a deep-blue state — in 2016, Hillary Clinton got 73% of the vote in Multnomah County, carrying Oregon by an 11-point margin — and therefore would seem to be an unlikely place to find anti-LGBT violence. So when activists in Portland claimed they had been […]

Don’t Say Nobody Tried to Warn You

  Gosh, who could have possibly foreseen this? Students at Hofstra University protested a statue of Thomas Jefferson on Friday at the second annual event, titled “Jefferson Has Gotta Go!” The statue has been the center of controversy on the campus and has been defaced with “DECOLONIZE” and “Black Lives Matter” signs and stickers. According […]

Joe Biden and White Self-Hatred

  In 1991, Sen. Joe Biden was the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee who permitted the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas to become a “high-tech lynching.” Among other things, this squalid episode had the effect of causing young Andrew Breitbart to begin questioning the liberal beliefs he had grown up with. (See, […]
