ESPN is crazy…

leave a comment »

ESPN has  pulled an  Asian man named Robert Lee from announcing a University of Virginia football game lest it upset someone.   His name became a political issue only because ESPN made it one.   My advice to Mr. Lee is to find another job.

I was wrong —  ESPN isn’t really crazy,  it’s just plain stupid!

Is it…

…just me,  or is the Daily Mail  story insanely  politically correct for failing to mention the robber’s clothing and choice of headgear?   Baltimore has for years been a wretched place to live for decent folk,  courtesy of the liberals and progressives who have run it into the ground.   This is just a further demonstration of how little Democratic politicians care about their constituents.

Roger Ailes, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

The founder and CEO of FOX News  has died.   I suspect that his recent ouster on the basis of allegations of sexual misconduct had more to do with the personal political views of Rupert Murdoch’s sons than with truth and justice.  After all,  that is what they have done in their jobs as CEO and co-chairman of Fox News’ parent company,  21st Century Fox,  and they appear to be busily destroying the FOX brand.

Democrats hated Roger Ailes because he was effective — a cardinal sin if you dare to promote less than progressive views.  A lot of people  admired him and what he created.   Count me among them.

UPDATE:  Some views from others,  beginning with  Ken McIntyre,  then Steve Peoples,  and  Rush Limbaugh,  along with  Pres. George  H.W. Bush.   Shepard Smith had a  more personal  take on the death of his mentor from complications resulting from a fall.

UPDATE:  And one more from Andrew Ferguson,  here.

UPDATE:  And a summation of what Ailes wrought,  from Jonah Goldberg,  here.

I’m not sure it will take Murdoch’s liberal  sons as  long as five years to destroy what Ailes created.

Blooming stupidity…

leave a comment »

Bloomington, Indiana was once inhabited by sturdy people with common sense.   Yet they now have a  mayor who  has proudly  proclaimed that Columbus Day and Good Friday will now be known as Fall and Spring Holiday,  so as to make the holidays more inclusive.  Of course he is a Democrat,  and a very liberal one at that.   He is also an idiot,  and I hope the voters see fit to vote him out after his term.

School name changes push-back…

leave a comment »

If the  assorted names  suggested by the public are anything to go by,  Texans are fed up with this rush to give public educational facilities politically correct names which the Left approves of.

Why do liberals and progressives assume that by changing words they can actually change history?   It must be the side effect of all that magical thinking they must indulge in.

Happy Indigenous People’s Day!

leave a comment »

If you are politically correct,  you did  not celebrate  Columbus Day on Monday,  but Indigenous People’s Day.   If you suffer living  in one  of those insufferable places which run on political correctness instead of good sense,  I feel sorry for you,  and suggest you move before it gets any worse.

Mark Antonio  Wright provides the two competing  views on  Columbus,  one of which may explain why activists took  an ax to a statue of the explorer.   Do you wonder  which side  His Oneness came down on?

Transgender language…

with 2 comments

I am so weary of the gender-based political correctness,  whereby trans-gendered, non-gendered,  gender exploring and gender questioning people get to dictate to the rest of us  what to  call them.   Now the police must  receive transgender  training instead of doing their jobs or learning how to better protect themselves.

I have a better idea.   Let’s just call the gender bullies gender-confused,  gender-denying,  petty little tyrants,  because just like the Muslim bullies, the feminist bullies,  and the gay bullies,  that is what  —  and all  —  they are.

Lest you smirk and say,  “Ah, what a homophobe!” I have nothing against people who are so pitifully confused about who and what they are.   I have plenty against progressives who believe that a 14 year old is capable of deciding to have gender reassignment surgery,  and utter contempt for parents who acquiesce to such insanity.   The gender bewildered need help,  but developing lists of  terms and nomenclature which they believe to be acceptable won’t give them what they really need,  and it would be a kindness to tell them so.
