Unleashing the power of mockery on annoying social justice warriors

from Creators Syndicate: In a culture where humorless leftists scolds seek to impose their rule upon us normals by sucking every drop of joy out of life, it is the conservative smartass who is the true subversive.

 🎬  Do You Have the Courage to Dissent?

This is how Californians take back their privacy

Is The ACLU Going Soft On The First Amendment?

by Damon Root.    That's the troubling question raised by University of Washington law professor Ronald Collins, who notes that the ACLU just began its annual fundraising campaign and released an accompanying "National ACLU Workplan," which, in the organization's own words, "lays out [the ACLU's] plans for the year ahead [and] always addresses  ...

This Is What A Social Justice Warrior Looks Like

by David French.      Pitching a fit as a path toward power. The video below has been making the rounds on the internet. It shows a young woman screaming in the face of Yale professor Nicholas Christakis about the alleged plight of minority students. Why the hysterical shrieking? Because the professor’s wife (a Yale lecturer) had the audacity   ... MORE

South Park Shows How To Defeat Social-Justice Warriors

by Stephen L. Miller.      A soul-crushing society, led by a click-happy media and finger-wagging president, that has demanded our country and culture change everything from its football-team names to its campus speech policies, has gone largely unchecked for the past seven or so years. Today, the shirt a scientist wears is more important than his     ... MORE

John Stossel: Socialist "Justice"

Totalitarianism with a happy face.     Protestors demand "social justice." I hate their chant. If I oppose their cause, then I'm for social "injustice"? Nonsense. The protesters usually want to punish capitalism. "Spread those resources," says Hillary Clinton. Even capitalists often make the mistake of talking about "social justice" as if it's the opposite ...

Sophia Wushanley: Free speech And Political Correctness

Speak and be judged. Its okay. It’s not easy being mainstream, or so the purportedly oppressed majority would have us all believe. Take, for instance, the recent #Gamergate backlash against feminist gamers. Or the indignation over the fact that a physicist was called out for wearing a shirt covered in sexualized images of women. There’s a general  ... MORE

Robert Klein Engler: A Worthless Sacrifice

The unfortunate education of James Foley.  The recent death of reporter James Foley at the hands of ISIS and the past death of American ambassador Chris Stevens have an interesting similarity. Both men were known to be liberals, and some would even say they were educated in a radical liberal tradition. Writing in USA Today, David McKay      ... MORE

Wendy McElroy: Why the Lights of America are Dimming

You cannot create passion and talent.  But you can destroy them. When people are punished for their virtues, such as the drive to excel and to work hard, then passion and talent become liabilities. Sometimes people persist for the sheer joy of creation, for the fulfillment of doing work they love. Because that's when the magic happens,   ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The 'Fairness' Fraud

It seems as if, everywhere you turn these days, there are studies claiming to show that America has lost its upward mobility for people born in the lower socioeconomic levels. But there is a sharp difference between upward "mobility," defined as an    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Inequality Bogeyman

Stop calling envy "social justice".       During a recent lunch in a restaurant, someone complimented my wife on the perfume she was wearing. But I was wholly unaware that she was wearing perfume, even though we had been in a car together for about half an hour, driving to the restaurant. My sense of smell is very poor. But there is     ... MORE

Obama Puts His Daddy Hat On, Again

by M. Catherine Evans.   Since when is it a president's place to advise people in their personal moral and spiritual journey? For five years, he's been preaching to white people on how they should act. Yesterday, President Obama  piped up once again on how the Trayvon Martin tragedy should move us all to be a little less racist. Predictably, he    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Who Is Racist?

Just how old is Thomas Sowell?    I am so old that I can remember when most of the people promoting race hate were white. Apparently other Americans also recognize that the sources of racism are different today from what they were in the past. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 31 percent of blacks think that most blacks are racists,     ... MORE
