The Culture That Hates Speech

by Steve MacDonald October 17, 2017

University speech guides, free speech zones, microaggressions, and the entire campus thought-police culture is programming future generations to accept that those in “authority” cannot only define where and when ‘speech’ may occur but who may participate and what words they can use. The first of two recent examples is an op-ed by a student at […]

Data Point – College kids don’t know what Free Speech really is

by Skip October 11, 2017

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once […]

There is no such thing as ‘Hate Speech’

by Steve MacDonald June 12, 2016

I have long argued that the term ‘Hate Speech’ is a rhetorical flourish with no actual meaning. It is a garnish, constructed in the victim factories of the social-justice mullahs of the politically-correct left to control ideas and censor words through intimidation. And while progressives have become fond of adding it to legislation, policies, rules, and the […]

Notable Quote – Kurt Schlichter

by Susan Olsen June 27, 2015

And I […]

I don’t think I’ve seen Chan this torqued up in a long while…take my 1st Amendment, I’ll show you my 2nd!!!

by Skip March 3, 2015

From his “Thoughts on a Sunday“: The totalitarians-in-training at Clemson University are calling for stripping everyone on campus of their First Amendment rights, making sure no one can voice opposing viewpoints they may find offensive, or worse, true. What shocked the Clemson community was the professors’ support of the students’ first demand, which called on the […]

Daniel Hannan – A lesson in Newspeak

by Susan Olsen January 6, 2015

“DIVERSITY: People who look different but think the same way. Diversity applies to race, sex, disability, and sexual orientation. It emphatically does not apply to opinion. Indeed, when it comes to political views, it has taken on more or less the opposite of its Oldspeak meaning.”

Encountering ‘Tea-Baggers’ On the Path To Restoring Civility to Concord

by Steve MacDonald August 8, 2012

Is there any limit to the number of dumb things a Democrat candidate for the NH House can do or say–or claim to stand? And how come, every time I try to walk away from this guy, he keeps dragging me back? Yes, I am referring to William Hudson Connery III, who since having stumbled […]
