The NFL’s Kneel-a-Palooza Isn’t What They Think It Is and They Don’t Even Know It

by Steve MacDonald September 29, 2017

The NFL’s Kneel-a-palooza is beginning to grate on my nerves. Team owners and players think they are doing something meaningful, but they’ve been shepherded into advocating a false-narrative that feeds the progressive mission to kneecap the culture, and most of them don’t even know it. Much like the hands-up-don’t-shoot meme, (which was a complete fabrication […]

Submission

by Steve MacDonald September 20, 2017

From William Kilpatrick at Crisis Magazine. Europe is currently in the process of submitting to Islam, and America also seems destined to eventually submit. If you have young children or grandchildren, it’s likely that they will have to adapt at some point to living in a Muslim-dominated society. It won’t necessarily be a Muslim-majority society because, […]

Whole Foods Lowers Prices: Commits Treason Against Pretentious Foodies

by Steve MacDonald September 3, 2017

Chicago Trib Reporter Rex Huppke has some fun at the expense of the stereotypical Whole Foods Cultist. The beef? Amazon is lowering prices. Good grief. Now eating ground beef that has been animal-welfare-rated won’t seem so special. And the days of silently mocking people who eat irresponsibly-farmed salmon are over, all thanks to a corporate […]

Reaching Out to Texas

by Ellen Kolb August 29, 2017

The news coverage of the epic flooding in Texas leaves me overwhelmed. It’s good to hear about relief efforts that let those of us at a distance reach out with practical help.

We Will Never Win the Culture War if We Give Them an Unimpeded Run of the Field

by Steve MacDonald August 12, 2017

Jonah Goldberg provides a glimpse into one of the better reasons for perseverance at this often-thankless blogging hobby. It’s our frick’n culture too. I’ve been arguing for 20 years that conservatives need to give up on the idea that we should set up a “parallel culture” for the simple reason that it’s our frick’n culture […]

What Kind of Sexism Is this? Parents Stop Naming their Kids Caitlyn

by Steve MacDonald May 13, 2017

There are so many sorts of sexism these days it can be difficult to keep up. Much like the legislative sprawl that leads to your being guilty of breaking some law you never knew about, meaning you are always guilty of something, being a sexist pig is as easy as saying that there are so […]

Borderlessworld

SteynOnline. As recently as a quarter-century ago, Her Britannic Majesty’s Government, in order to contain a domestic emergency, was willing to impose internal travel restrictions within the United Kingdom on those suspected of terrorist associations, in order to prevent some fellows from Newry or West Belfast flying to Manchester or Birmingham and blowing stuff up.

The Cloward-Piven’ing of the EU is continuing; take notice

by Skip October 1, 2016

When someone comes to your country and they embrace the habits, language, and traditions along with (or even in place of) their own they are advocating your nations worldview, culture, and values.

Men Have No Say? Then Why Make Them Pay?

by Steve MacDonald April 23, 2016

[Bumped- because it came up on today’s GrokTALK!: Originally posted Feb 9th, 2012] The short-lived Komen for the Cure controversy over funding for Planned Parenthood ignited more than a few debates in the verse, more of them about abortion as it turns out than breast cancer screening.
