Free Speech for Real

Sometimes, I wonder if free speech is even a thing any more.  It seems that students on college campuses no longer protest because their right to free speech is being infringed upon; rather they are upset when people are allowed to speak their minds freely.  They are actually asking “the man” to intervene and regulate speech. What’s up with that? A recent story of a court battle in the trademark arena has given me hope, though.  The courts ruled that the Asian rock group, the Slants, cannot Read more […]

Islamic Propaganda: Fighting “Hate and Bigotry”… with Lies

Interesting Morocco World  News headline: “Central Florida Launches Billboards to ‘Dispel Myths and Fear About Islam’” An initiative has been launched in the cities of Tampa and Orlando in Central Florida where billboards have been placed on key highways displaying information about Islam. The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is the organization in charge of posting these educational billboards that aim to “dispel myths and fear about Islam during this challenging time,” the ICNA Read more […]

All Lives Matter–Mizzou Students Worry about Paris Tragedy Stealing their Thunder

With the protesting at the University of Missouri, the “black lives matter” signs have shown up again.  I agree that black lives matter.  But I also think that unborn lives matter, and the lives of Christians persecuted in Islamic nations matter, and the lives of Parisians who were attacked matter, and that the lives of people killed all over the world every day matter.  Humans need to agree that all lives matter! In thinking about all the lives that matter, I was struck by this report at breitbart.com Read more […]

Racism, Economic Illiteracy Fuel Campus Protests

Yesterday apparently was unofficial Protest Day at campuses across the country. Encouraged perhaps by the nonsense that has recently been going on at “Mizzou” — the University of Missouri — students around the nation took up their pickets and pitchforks and marched. What for exactly varied, and in some cases the students themselves didn’t seem too certain why they were making a hullabaloo. Racism seemed to be the main issue, although as befitted a fundamentally socialist movement, economics Read more […]

Hillary Laughs as Questioner Discusses Strangling Fiorina

What’s good for the gander should be good for the goose. Remember when an audience member-slash-Democrat-plant at a Trump rally called President Obama a Muslim, and The Donald had to put up with a round of media criticism for not correcting the (alleged) error? The questioner described Muslims in the United States as a “problem” and asked “When can we get rid of them?” Suddenly, Trump was an anti-Muslim zealot and “wingnut” because he didn’t take some random guy to task and instead gave Read more […]

Thought & Speech Police Are Alive and Well at University of Missouri

“I always feel like somebody’s watching me,” say the lyrics of the popular 90s song by Rockwall.  At University of Missouri today, this is more than just a feeling.  University Police are asking students to report anyone who uses “hurtful speech.” Medialite.com reports: In an email that was flagged by several Missouri-based journalists, the MUPD asked “individuals who witness incidents of hateful and/or hurtful speech or actions” to call the department’s general phone line “to continue Read more […]

L.A. Mayor Chased Out of Church by Black Lives Matter

You just can’t be liberal enough to please some people. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti found that out the hard way on Monday, as a group of Black Lives Matter protesters started charging the podium at a public meeting, leading Garcetti to exit stage left surrounded by police officers. In what was supposed to be a town hall meeting at Holman United Methodist Church, Garcetti had been expected to answer questions for the community about “economic opportunity and community safety,” according Read more […]

To Disagree is Not to Hate

Christians, apparently, are the newest threat to homeland security.  There is a new emphasis on Americans attacking Americans, and the biggest thing that the Department of Justice is looking at is what people believe. On Wednesday, October 14, the Assistant Attorney General John Carlin delivered remarks on Domestic Terrorism at an event co-sponsored by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the George Washington University Center for Cyber and Homeland Security’s Program on Extremism.
