Deanna Chadwell – The original Ten Commandments were pretty basic:
♦ Believe in God.
♦ Worship no one else.
♦ Don’t swear by His name because you never mean it.
♦ Worship and rest one day a week.
♦ Respect your parents.
♦ Don’t murder anyone.
♦ Don’t steal anything.
♦ Don’t commit adultery.
♦ Don’t lie.
♦ Don’t envy.
Any society where a substantial percentage of the citizens obeyed these rules was a stable and prosperous society. No one will ace all of the commandments all of the time, but for the sake of the health of the community, an honest effort by a lot of people made things better for everyone –- inconvenient from time to time, restrictive if one gets really angry, but not at all unreasonable.

Paul Rosenberg – Let’s be honest about something: We in the West have been overrun by a tidal wave of racial hatred, and it erupted from institutions “of higher learning.” Whatever exceptions may exist, this central fact is clear. We are free to close our eyes, of course, but when we choose to see, this is what stands in front of us.
What has been taught in the universities, and most powerfully in “elite” universities, bore a bumper crop of poisoned fruit. On top of that, the universities have both complied with and defended this barbarity.
Regardless of the fact that a few decent, humane academics still exist (and God bless them), the universities have spawned racial hate, defended it, and are unrepentant. They can no longer be taken seriously by adults. They have become fonts of barbarity. Continue reading “The Barbarians Have Taken The Institutions”
“The nation which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.” —George Washington (1796)
Mark Alexander – Amid all the woke “cancel culture” desecration and destruction of our nation’s history, it’s apparent that our “higher educational institutions” have succeeded in dumbing down most of the Millennial generation of privileged white leftists. The latest targets of these oh-so-woke BLM “Burn, Loot, Murder” cadres of black supremacists and their white frontline agitators are organizations with any remote connection to long-past racist or racial insensitivity.
Demonstrating their monumental ignorance, they’ve gone after iconic brands like the NFL’s Redskins, the Broadway hit “Hamilton,” those universities founded by racists, and so much more. Dennis Prager adds: “Uncle Ben, Aunt Jemima, Ulysses Grant, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, ‘whitening’ agents, meritocracy, Western culture and Christianity.” Continue reading “Cancel Culture Alert: Target These Racist Organizations”
Stephanie Hitt – The speech police are knocking at your door, and there is a new standard in town. It’s called white privilege. The left has already taken control of speech on college campuses, where college administrators determine what can be said by whom and where (and where not, ergo safe spaces). But now they can cancel alumni at social events in their living rooms. If you thought you could evade the tentacles of political correctness by avoiding a campus or classroom, steering clear of political protests, or self-censoring your Facebook posts, think again.
Recently, a college friend was asked if she would share her experiences living abroad at an upcoming alumni gathering. These gatherings are friendly and relaxed, involve only alumni and their guests, and are meant to put local members in touch with each other.

Joseph P Farrell – I admit, when I woke up this morning and found the following article by Paul Craig Roberts in my email inbox from M.W., I became angry. In fact, I’m still angry, so I apologize for writing this in the heat of a purple passion.
Consider that a “rant alert”, level three.
But it was bound to happen sooner or later as the cultural swamp that is modern America continues to decline under the assaults of political correctness, cultural Marxism, the “Frankfurt school”, multi-culturalism, call it what you will, because sooner or later (and I suspect sooner rather than later) those statues and pictures of J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, Joseph Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin… you know, all those composers that form the core of our musical culture, will come tumbling down for some silly reason being advanced by people who are, essentially, witless barbarians and musical morons and self-anointed “perfect people”.
