Trump’s Charlottesville Statement Was Neutral To A Fault – Here Are Some Other Things Besides Nazis He Could Be Impartial About

Trump’s Charlottesville Statement Was Neutral To A Fault – Here Are Some Other Things Besides Nazis He Could Be Impartial About

Donald Trump proved once again that he is the off-script president, willing to speak his mind on any topic without thinking. Trump put about as much thought into his Charlottesville response as went into the script for the Emoji movie. While Trump is perhaps technically correct that the “alt-left” bears some responsibility for this past weekend’s violence due to the fact that they were swinging clubs and spraying the right-wing protesters with mace, he also needs to realize that in order to be the most presidential person since Lincoln, he can’t split hairs when…

CNN Is Now Proud That It Has Poets, Not Reporters

CNN Is Now Proud That It Has Poets, Not Reporters

The only thing weirder than the fact that CNN correspondent Jim Acosta had a testy exchange with White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller over a poem, is the fact that CNN was seemingly proud of its role in the argument, at one point linking to the video on its home page. The debate, which lasted over 6 minutes, began with Acosta quoting the poem on the Statue of Liberty. He went on to claim that Trump’s plan to prioritize immigrants with relevant job skills is at odds with the composition, which…

Parents “Caring For” Their Kids On Social Media Are The Millennial Stage Moms

Parents “Caring For” Their Kids On Social Media Are The Millennial Stage Moms

The only thing that spreads faster on the internet than outrage is heartwarming stories, and this past week, aunts across America used their Yahoo email accounts to share a”touching” story of a Dad who wore a helmet to show solidarity with his 4 month-old child. Nevermind the fact that these baby helmets don’t even work, the most pressing question about this story is why people think this dad is doing some great thing for his child. His kid is a 4 month-old baby who literally can’t see farther than two feet in front of him….

Ashton Kutcher Proves That Identity Politics Are Not Your Friend

Ashton Kutcher Proves That Identity Politics Are Not Your Friend

Ashton Kutcher announced that he was trying to start a dialogue about gender equality in the workplace, and women responded by starting a dialogue about how Ashton Kutcher was ignorant and sexist.  Kutcher promptly apologized and said the blowback was a “learning experience,” but it’s pretty clear that the only lesson to be learned is that when you side with identity politics, unless you share the same identity, you’re never going to win. Preaching inclusiveness to the liberal mob is like preaching in one of those churches where they hold venomous snakes –…

Critics Can’t Keep Giving Superhero Movies Good Reviews

Critics Can’t Keep Giving Superhero Movies Good Reviews

Spiderman: Homecoming is opening this weekend to rave reviews, with 95% of “top critics” recommending this new movie about a boy bitten by a radioactive spider (the third iteration in 15 years). This praise comes on the heels of last month’s Wonder Woman movie, which was recommended by 92% of critics. Logan, the R rated movie about an X-Man with steak knives attached to his hands, was recommended by 93% of critics. And last year, it was Captain America: Civil War that received greater approval from critics than Saving Private Ryan. While there…

Uber Allowing Tipping Shows Corporations Are Beating Individuals

Uber Allowing Tipping Shows Corporations Are Beating Individuals

This past week, Uber reversed course and announced that they would allow tipping in an effort to increase the satisfaction level of their increasingly dissatisfied driver base (rival Lyft has a much more positive rating from drivers – in part due to higher wages from tipping). The move came just after the resignation of the app’s CEO, and also following the resignation of a board member who made a “sexist” comment about women talking more than men (which was a shame both because the comment was true and because he missed out…

The Congressional Baseball Shooting Should Make It Clear To Democrats That Some People Are Just Nuts

The Congressional Baseball Shooting Should Make It Clear To Democrats That Some People Are Just Nuts

It was fitting that baseball, America’s former national pastime, provided the backdrop for the latest controversy in America’s current national pastime – arguing about politics and gun violence. When James Hodgekinson entered a Republican baseball practice with a kill list in his pocket, you can be sure the media was ready to pounce like an Instagram model at the NBA draft. One can only guess at the disappointment in newsrooms when they found out the shooter committed his crime in the name of the viewpoint they espoused each night. The…

Harvard Shouldn’t Police Facebook Memes

Harvard Shouldn’t Police Facebook Memes

Harvard University, in its latest effort to create the ultimate safe space, rescinded its offer to at least 10 prospective students due to “offensive” memes that the students were sharing in a private Facebook group chat entitled “Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens.” Now the students must scramble to find community colleges to attend, where they will either have to give up their group chat or explain to the other students what “bourgeois” means. While FIRE and other free speech advocates have admonished Hahhhvard, many people have been quick to jump to…

Bill Maher And Kathy Griffin Are Different People Who Did Different Things

Bill Maher And Kathy Griffin Are Different People Who Did Different Things

In a pleasing tidal shift, the internet’s outrage this week was not directed towards fake hate crimes, but instead towards narcissistic overpaid celebrities – something people on all sides of the aisle can get behind. The brunt of the news coverage went to Kathy Griffin – who was still recovering from posting a photo of herself holding a bloody severed Trump head. Griffin and her photographer claimed the image was meant to mock Trump’s comments regarding Megan Kelly, which if true, is a joke absolutely no one got. When Trump said that…

No One Is Trying To Import More White Nationalists

No One Is Trying To Import More White Nationalists

After a Portland man went on an anti-Muslim tirade and stabbed a group of men trying to protect two young women, the media predictably had a field day.  The Washington Post claimed that such attacks would continue to happen unless we fight white supremacy. Slate criticized Trump for not tweeting about the attacks soon enough. Many people were quick to point out that more people are killed by white nationalists than refugees, and Jill Stein tweeted that the event was “Another heartbreaking tragedy in Trump’s America.” The violent attacks in Portland…
