Halloween 2017…

leave a comment »

Halloween should be light-hearted  and fun,  but the  social justice jerks are out in full force.   To which I reply we should all  carve pumpkins  with a Henry rifle or some  other firearm.     You might skip this in some areas, like  Salem,  Massachusetts,   where police are already on alert.  If you’re still decorating,  try these ghosts  or a  spider web   or some  spooky silhouettes    or masks.   The White House has  finished its  decorating and it looks great.

October 31st is also the date Martin Luther  launched the  Protestant Reformation but if you don’t feel like studying that,  enjoy  this historical collection of Halloween pranks and such,  then marvel at  7,000 Jack O’Lanterns.   Or take a gander at Debby Witt’s  collection of  scary stuff at The Corner of National Review Online.   Appropriate as you see fit,  because it’s  really appreciation,  and proceed to enjoy the evening as it should be celebrated!   Don’t behave like these  miserable miscreants.  even to provide a few chuckles for your local police.

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?
