Pat Buchanan is an Enemy of the United States of America

When a Muslim urges the violent overthrow of the United States we call that “terrorism”. When an American Muslim does it, we call that “treason”. When a grumpy old white male Trump supporter does it, Trumpkins call it “patriotism”, but in fact it is still treason. And if it finds violent expression, it is still [Read More…]

What Really Matters to Trumpkins

Note, especially, their interest in stopping abortion, compared to their *real* interest, treating brown skinned people like vermin: This is who you are in bed with “prolife” Trumpkin. Sleep well.

Weekly Standard Attempts to Stage Intervention

…with the Madhouse Party. It’s like a Greek tragedy and a biblical judgment all rolled into one. The wound is entirely self-inflicted and yet still the Party of Personal Responsibility cannot die to its massive pride and admit it’s colossal sin in creating this monster and his base.

John Zmirak continues his battle against Catholic teaching

Update:  Given that this piece seems to have confused some people into thinking that I was claiming Zmirak embraces every point of right wing hostility to the Magisterium (which was not at all my intent), I have edited the text to make clear that he does not do this.  He has, for example agreed with [Read More…]

The Remarkable Thing About the Trumpkin Right

…is how it is completely willing to sacrifice itself and its integrity and credibility for a man who will hurt his own supporters most of all.  He does not care about you.  He does not even care about winning the election and has already made clear he has abandoned any hope of doing so.  That’s [Read More…]

Anthropology and Christianity

A reader writes: I was corresponding with an Eastern Orthodox friend of mine.
