The New York Times: America Sucks

This past Saturday, the New York Times published an article, "Behind Flurry of Killing, Potency of Hate," on the roots of monstrous evil. The article largely concerned a former paramilitary member of the Irish Republican Army, and as such was informative. But when it ventured into a larger discussion of evil, the moral confusion and…

Why the Left Hates the Old

The latest left-wing tactic to discredit conservative views is to dismiss the age and race of conservatives. "Old white males" and "old white people" are the left’s latest favored negative epithets for those holding conservative views. Chris Matthews of MSNBC, Thomas Friedman and Paul Krugman of the New York Times, and Senate Majority Leader Harry…

Muslims Need to Confront Muslim Evil

A few weeks ago a human-interest story from South Africa was reported internationally. As described in the Wall Street Journal this past Friday: "On Aug. 4, Graham and Sheryl Anley, while yachting off the coast of South Africa, hit a reef, capsizing their boat.

The Left Vs. the Redskins

The online magazine Slate announced last week that it will never again refer to the Washington’s National Football League team, the Redskins, by its name. The name, according to Slate, offends American Indians, and therefore should be dropped. And until such time, Slate will never mention it. It will become, in effect, the R-word. The…
