It’s Always The Most Important Election Ever, and the GOP Nominee is Always Dangerous

It’s Always The Most Important Election Ever, and the GOP Nominee is Always Dangerous

If you listen to the news, it goes without saying that the upcoming November election is the most important decision in America’s history (though the Washington Post, Bloomberg, and the Nation have still felt the need to say it). On top of that, The New Yorker and Washington Post have boldly warned that a Trump presidency is a dangerous and unique threat to democracy. And while it’s true that Donald Trump is often times an idiot who insults people for no reason, it’s also important to note that this hysteria around the election and the GOP…

Who You Gonna Call? The Speech Police

Who You Gonna Call? The Speech Police

Twitter has banned conservative voice Milo Yiannopoulos this week after a blow up he had with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones. Jones, who had starred in the surprisingly controversial remake, had been complaining about the racist and offensive harassment she was receiving on twitter, which led to Milo engaging her and ultimately got him kicked off the social media platform. But while many of the tweets targeted at Jones were vile and way over line, none of them actually came from Milo. In fact, if you look at Leslie Jones’s interactions with the gay conservative…

What Each Candidate Has In Common With “Pokemon Go”

What Each Candidate Has In Common With “Pokemon Go”

Pokemon Go has taken America by nerd-storm. The app, in which users walk around the real world trying to get to specified spots in order to catch virtual creatures, has led to unexpected-exercise for millions of millenials. Due to their inexperience with areas of the earth that aren’t their living room, Whole Foods, or artisanal macaroon shops, these pretend “Pokemon trainers” have been shot at, crashed cars, and fallen off of cliffs as they’ve ventured into the real world for the first time in decades. Pokemon Go has become so successful that Hillary Clinton even…

The FBI Made The Right Decision To Call Hillary A Criminal, But Not Charge Her As One

The FBI Made The Right Decision To Call Hillary A Criminal, But Not Charge Her As One

The FBI came under both praise and criticism after it recommended no charges be filed against Hillary Clinton for her email scandal. Director James Comey stated during his press conference that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case” (though that obviously doesn’t rule out “badass” Freddie Gray prosecutor Marilyn Mosby who loves charging people without evidence). Comey had authority to bring charges against Hillary because the attorney general had to recuse herself after a suspicious meeting with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix airport tarmac. If anyone still believes Democrats are the party of the…

The Military Made a Good Business Decision Allowing Transgenders in the Military

The Military Made a Good Business Decision Allowing Transgenders in the Military

For the first time ever, transgender people are allowed to serve in the military. While many on the left are celebrating the move to lift the ban on transgender troops as a step towards equality, Republicans are criticizing the move as “prioritizing politics over policy.” But those Republicans are missing the mark. Politics cannot be separated from policy so long as the military is funded by politicians who are elected by the people. So long as we live in a democracy, politics must be intertwined with military policy. The ban on transgender people had…

The Freddie Gray Verdicts Show The Danger When The Left Has Outrage, But Not Answers

The Freddie Gray Verdicts Show The Danger When The Left Has Outrage, But Not Answers

If you were looking to showcase the dangers of social justice warrior group think, the police trials related to Freddie Gray would be a great place to start. For those who don’t remember the controversy, Freddie Gray was a 25 year old Baltimore man with some twenty drug and criminal charges against him, five of which were still pending at the time of his death. Gray was arrested by the Baltimore police, and a week later he died of spinal cord injuries. Baltimore then decided to stick it to the evil white…

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…
