Or, Republicans could soar if the House Democratic Caucus insists on retaining Nancy Pelosi as Minority Leader and presumptive Speaker.
Indeed, one is compelled to wonder how many more Americans would tick the box next to the Democratic candidate if the Dems would simply shed their tired, pedantic old-school progressives in favor of someone more inspiring and less, well, scolding.
Yes, the military needs rebuilding. But not with gold-plated white elephant programs and outdated weapons systems sucking up the lion’s share of the budget.
We need to start rebuilding the military by rebuilding procurement and by taking a flamethrower to the military-industrial-congressional iron triangle that is turning the military that won WWII into the one that lost at Dien Bien Phu.
True conservatives want no truck with white supremacists.
White supremacy – indeed, ethnic chauvinism of any ilk – is reactionary in both nature and origin.
To be a white supremacist is to be a reactionary, not only opposed to progress but desirous that the march of progress be reversed.
For the record, this author and this blog want no truck with reactionaries, and that includes the hate-spewing rabble who continue to treasure a vision of an America dominated by any faith, gender, or ethnic group.
I support feminism to the point that I once called myself a feminist. I maintain that gender balance in all aspects of society is not only a necessary precondition to a just civilization, it is also the antidote to many social ills that plague traditional patriarchies, whether in the workplace, the statehouse, or the home.
But when feminism crosses the line into misandry, when it engages in or tolerates behavior that incites hatred against the male gender as a whole, feminism mocks its own goals and becomes unsupportable.
There are many men who are deserving of the worst unflattering epithets known to language. But to draw from that fact the conclusion that “men are scum” (or worse) is to put us all on a pathway to oppression and injustice from which no person would be safe.
Misandry disguised as feminism is hypocrisy. Facebook was right to take the actions that it did.
Thank God that the deracinated, de-Christianized EU elite plan to integrate Turkey into the European Union did not work. And if I were a Turk, I would thank Allah for preserving my Islamic country from that fate too. Elites in both countries wish to deny the religious basis of their respective cultures, and pretend that we’re all a bunch of universalists. We’re not, and never will be.
