Playing the Hitler Game

The comparisons being drawn between Hitler and Trump are kind of hard to miss. I’ve ready many an article explaining that Trump’s rhetoric or policies are similar to those of Hitler, or comparing our moment in history to that of Germany in the early 1930s. But progressives are not the only ones drawing Hitler comparisons this election, and Trump is not the only figure to star in these narratives.

Governor Bevin Warns of Bloodshed

Bevin sounds like my father, and like so many other homeschool fathers I grew up knowing in the conservative evangelical community in which I grew up. And that’s not a coincidence. Bevin is a homeschool father.

Donald Trump’s Islamophobic Fear Mongering Is Disgusting

I am far more concerned about being killed by an armed white male upset at his ex-wife, or angry at the government, upset with his coworkers, than I am about being killed by Muslims inspired by terrorist groups abroad. And well I should be! Since 2002, 94 people have been killed in the U.S. by jihadists. During that same time, there have been over 200,000 murders in the U.S. Donald Trump can take his mailing and stuff it.

Anonymous Tip: A Private Conversation—Wait, What?!

It’s Thursday morning. Gwen was supposed to meet Peter at 9:00 at his office, but it’s 9:15 and she’s not there yet. No matter. The phone rings, and it’s the reporter, Morgan Howard, informing Peter that he lost the case. Apparently it came down the AP but no one told Peter about it and, as he complains to Joe after telling Morgan he’ll call him back after the reads the decision, the copy that will be mailed to them probably won’t arrive until Monday.

WTF Is Even Happening

I can’t even with this election season. Evangelicals are falling all over themselves to defend Trump—he’s just a sinner like the rest of us, we’re informed—and I’m starting to forget which way is up and which way is down. Also, how did Trump think flat-out lying at Sunday’s debate would be a good idea? Did he honestly think that all of the women he’s sexually assaulted over the years would stay silent in the face of that?

Will Marriage Equality End Parental Rights? Part 2

Last spring I dissected an article by Melissa Moschella, a philosophy professor at Catholic University of America. Moschella contended that the Obergefell decision was a threat to parents’ rights. In the piece I looked at, she asked to whom children belong. In a second article, which I put off analyzing at the time, she creates a defense of parental authority. I want to take some time to look at that second piece now.
