Is Transracialism The Next Frontier of Identity Politics?

That girl's so white you could use her to make a fluffer-nutter sandwich.

By now everyone has probably heard about the white NAACP leader who lied for years in order to pass herself off as black. No doubt this emerged from a sincere affection for black culture and causes that ultimately took over her life and caused her to alter her identity. I don’t doubt she thinks of herself [Read More...]

Bernie Sanders Is Ron Paul For Lefties

10941116_10153334452992908_6865609441047079646_n

You’re going to have to excuse me if I pass up a trip on the Bernie Sanders Is Our New Trvth Telling Prophet Bandwagon. Bernie Sanders is Leftie Ron Paul: a nutty uncle who sometimes blurts out a piece of common sense, such as this: …but most of the time sounds about one step away from [Read More...]

BeingLiberal.org Brings the Stupid

2015-05-08 09.20.17

Let’s see what kind of memes our lefty friends are spreading today: Let’s take the points one at a time: Why is “Christian” in scare quotes? Christians of conscience who don’t want to participate in the absurd and sinful farce of gay “marriage” are not really Christian? So now non-believers are reading us out of our [Read More...]

I Wasn’t Charlie, and I’m Not Pamela

The winning cartoon from Pamela Geller's contest.

You don’t get to choose the guy in the trench next to you. The nasty miscreants of Charlie Hebdo would not be my choice for allies, nor would the objectivist idiot Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs. Unfortunately, they seem to be the only people placing themselves in the line of fire in the cultural war [Read More...]

Game Con Threatens to Leave Indiana Over Conscience Protection Bill

Indiana_state_seal

The latest moral preening about Indiana’s conscience protection bill comes from the Gen Con gaming convention, which is threatening to move to another state. To satisfy gamers, Indiana must choose to crush religious freedom so gay couples don’t need to pick the next caterer in the phone book. “Legislation that could allow for refusal of [Read More...]

Let’s Choose Not To Be Manipulated

Marshall-Mcluhandis

In the modern media ecosystem, the stories come faster than the mind has time to process. We find ourselves crouching into offensive or defensive postures, falling back on tribal catchphrases, and reacting too fast, too soon, and always with too much outrage. I don’t have to go further than the last couple days to show [Read More...]

Why Obama’s Rhetoric About Christian Violence Was a Problem

Barack_Obama_at_Cairo_University_cropped

Saturday morning I wrote some thoughts about why Obama was wrong to drag Christian sins into his speech condemning Islamic terror. I spent that afternoon debating my points on social media with Sam Rocha, Mark Shea, and others, so I thought I’d expand upon my rationale a bit. I don’t really write about contemporary political [Read More...]

Thoughts About The State of the … Ooo! A Puppy!

1912210_10205701508722914_216683002495477052_n

My various feeds are full of comments about the State of the Union address last night, as if this kind of crass political theater is something that matters even a little. The focus-tested murmurings of our entrenched oligarchic ruling class are of so little consequence that a couple hours spent reading the most excellent Tarzan comic [Read More...]
