Rittenhouse reactions and the left’s new found right to retreat

Kyle Rittenhouse and the collapse of common sense and decency

If a 17-year old white kid involved in a tragic incident with three white adults can divide the entire country along partisan lines, raising the specter of white supremacy and white privilege, is there anything that can’t? No one should know Kyle Rittenhouse’s name.  In some slightly more rational world, he would be a normal,… Continue reading Kyle Rittenhouse and the collapse of common sense and decency

Shakespeare: Is there at least one dead white dude worthy of redemption?

Despite calls to cancel the Bard, NPR reports that black theater actors and directors are adapting Shakespeare’s plays in innovative new productions and interpretations, taking their place in a long, storied history of performances and a worldwide legacy that embraces all ethnicities.   Earlier this year, a movement was afoot to cancel, or at least greatly… Continue reading Shakespeare: Is there at least one dead white dude worthy of redemption?

Emily Ratajkowski: A single article in Vogue encapsulates the many confusions, or should I say insanities, of our elites

There’s nothing worse than a white man sleeping, we can’t bring more white men into the world, and we should all choose our genders at age 18.  Oh, and women comparing themselves to other women is now misogyny.  It’s as if some woke supercomputer wrote this tripe... Rarely does one article, written by a supermodel… Continue reading Emily Ratajkowski: A single article in Vogue encapsulates the many confusions, or should I say insanities, of our elites

The filibuster is racist now too

Can someone please ask Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden why they were supporting racism for decades by liberally using the practice?  They were all for it before they were against it, but now the filibuster is a very bad tool of white supremacy, amazing how that works.

The Convenient Politicization of Mental Illness

Though there remains no rational explanation for evil, that doesn’t stop the mainstream media and politicians from pouncing on stories that might or might not fit their preferred narrative while completely avoiding others.  Two mass murders, two very different explanations, guess which one gets the non-stop white supremacy did it coverage? By all fair-minded accounts,… Continue reading The Convenient Politicization of Mental Illness

A few honest, good faith thoughts on the root cause of racial disparities and the potential room for disagreement in a world increasingly polarized on topics of race and equity.  Where do we go from here?

Math, yes, math, as in adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing, is racist now too

The woke army marches into classrooms with a new guide on “Deconstructing Racism in Mathematics Instruction,” urging teachers to pursue an “ethnomathematics” to return math to its proper “cultural ways of being.”  Once again, a ridiculous 22-year old paper casts a long shadow... “These common practices that perpetuate white supremacy culture create and sustain institutional… Continue reading Math, yes, math, as in adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing, is racist now too

The Capitol Attack one month later: Who’s responsible? Trump? Right wing militias? White supremacy? A new domestic terror threat?

A new report from The Atlantic of all places suggests a much more complex picture of the supposed insurrection than any of the prevailing Trump as would-be Osama bin Laden narratives, even as Trump’s historic second impeachment trial looms next week. Former President Trump’s second impeachment trial begins next Tuesday, February 9.  The charge before… Continue reading The Capitol Attack one month later: Who’s responsible? Trump?
