The Media Thinks White Christians Are Responsible For A Muslim Guy Targeting Gays

The Media Thinks White Christians Are Responsible For A Muslim Guy Targeting Gays

It didn’t take long for the media to pin the Orlando shooting on the real culprit – white privilege. The media talks about white privilege the same way an old secretary talks about her grandchildren – there is no cup of coffee, no fire drill, no paper clip that doesn’t remind the secretary of something her adorable her little Aiden did, or in the case of the media, how white people are agents of death and oppression. One would think that after a Muslim man shot and killed 49 people at a gay club, the media…

The Coverage of Hillary’s Tweet Shows That The Media Is Her Megaphone

The Coverage of Hillary’s Tweet Shows That The Media Is Her Megaphone

America’s two presidential candidates got into a twitter war on Thursday, because this election has the same gravitas as rich housewives tweeting snipes at each other about whose third-husband is the ugliest. The Hillary-Trump social media scuffle arose after Obama endorsed Hillary for president, prompting the Donald to react on twitter:   Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama—but nobody else does! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2016 Hillary (or more likely her unpaid intern, unless Hillary is constantly refreshing her feed) responded just five minutes…

Fox Apologizing For The X-Men Poster Shows The Insanity Of Modern Feminism

Fox Apologizing For The X-Men Poster Shows The Insanity Of Modern Feminism

Fox has apologized for its “offensive” billboard for the new X-Men movie, in which Jennifer Lawrence’s character is strangled by the movie’s villain. Critics have charged that the poster, which shows a blue mutant being choked by a man who looks like a statue mated with a dishwasher, uses violence against women to promote the action movie. The billboard originally drew the ire of Rose McGowan, and then lead feminist site Mary Sue to state that the “poster reinforces a narrative that commandeers and reduces women into a position of helplessness through violence.” X-Men star Jennifer Lawrence has…

Billionaire Peter Thiel Is A Hero For Backing Hulk Hogan’s Gawker Suit

Billionaire Peter Thiel Is A Hero For Backing Hulk Hogan’s Gawker Suit

In 2007, Gawker published an article called “Peter Thiel is totally gay, people,” which broke the news to their readers that the Ebay founder was “totally gay.” Thiel, who was not previously open about his sexuality,  was unsurprisingly not thrilled when he was outed to the world on a gossip site devoted to such other hard hitting investigative journalism as trying to figure out if Donald Trump wears a hair weave. Most victims of cyberbullying would just give up, even after a website outed their personal life in the hope of selling more ads for…

Obama’s New Overtime Rules Should Go Further To Spread Work

Obama’s New Overtime Rules Should Go Further To Spread Work

This past week Obama passed a new federal regulation doubling the income threshold to avoid mandatory overtime from $23,660 to $47,476. The move effectively makes millions more Americans eligible for that sweet, time-and-a-half pay. The raise in the overtime threshold was long overdue. Federal regulations generally require employers to pay time-and-a-half for any employee who works more than 40 hours in a week; however, white collar workers have generally been exempted from the rules. This made sense in 1950, when everyone went to work with a lunch pail in order to go pound rocks like Fred Flintstone….

Ronan Farrow Needs To Leave Woody Allen Alone

Ronan Farrow Needs To Leave Woody Allen Alone

Ronan Farrow is back in the news accusing his father Woody Allen of being a child molester. On the heels of the Cannes opening of Allen’s new movie Cafe Society, Farrow penned an essay for Hollywood Reporter asking why stars like Blake Livey and Kristen Stewart aren’t being questioned about Allen’s past allegations – because the natural follow up to “what are you wearing” is “what do you think of the director’s 1992 child abuse accusations?” Farrow is of course referring to the allegations that surfaced during a custody battle,…

The Left’s New Target: Freedom of Association

The Left’s New Target: Freedom of Association

American universities are already denying students free speech, because its more important to stop “hate speech” (like writing Trump 2016 in rainbow chalk) than to cultivate a free exchange of ideas. In addition, students are no longer allowed due process, with university administrator’s refusing to even review video evidence before issuing decisions – because why bother with facts when the defendant is a conservative? And this week Harvard, always a leader in education, has decided to be the initial school to end the first amendment right of freedom of association. Starting with the…

The Supreme Court Should Take Tom Brady’s Case

The Supreme Court Should Take Tom Brady’s Case

Tom Brady has added former Soliciter General Ted Olson, who successfully argued Bush v. Gore, to his “deflategate” legal defense team. Given that Olson has argued a number of cases in the Supreme Court, his addition has led to speculation that Brady will appeal his case all the way up to the nation’s high court. There are many who would say that the Supreme Court getting involved in a football inflation case would be a mockery of the judicial system. With all the issues in America, should they really focus their…

We Need Internet Comments To Fact Check The Media

We Need Internet Comments To Fact Check The Media

Law blog “Above the Law” (not run by Bob Loblaw) announced this week that it would no longer allow comments on it’s articles, proudly proclaiming that they got rid of comments because they were “making the internet worse.” Founder David Lat claimed that the comment section on the blog had changed over the years, and that eventually “the ratio of offensive to substantive shifted in favor of the offensive.” Since we all know that any possible gains from additional knowledge and outside perspectives are far outweighed by the possibility that someone…

Kasich Is The Latest To Apologize For Using Common Sense

Kasich Is The Latest To Apologize For Using Common Sense

Another week passed in the political race, which meant that another politician had to apologize to the almighty god of political correctness. Such a sacrifice is necessary in order to stop the volcano “Mt. White Privilege” from erupting – because that event would wake up the villagers and they might realize it’s suspicious that Saudi Arabia gave between $10-25 million to the Clinton foundation a couple of years after she sent them American F-15 fighter jets as a “Christmas gift” – especially since this week the Saudis threatened to sell American assets if 9/11 victims were allowed to…
