The professional left and their media homunculi bemoan the decline of America from its once proud manufacturing heritage.  “We don’t build things anymore,” they say, and “where have all the good paying manufacturing jobs gone?” The better question is, where are the hard working Americans’ who would work in manufacturing if the left stopped pushing […]

There is no ‘Justice’ in “Social Justice”

by Steve MacDonald May 26, 2015
Thumbnail image for There is no ‘Justice’ in “Social Justice”

Social Justice is many things to many people.  It is whatever anyone wants it to be but violence is its foundation.   The progressive utopia can only be born out of the fire of change. It only comes from war, civil, cultural.  You are either part of the movement or its enemy; those who organize for […]

Democrats think you are SELFISH if you want to KEEP more of your own money

by Kimberly Morin April 1, 2015

While torturing myself listening to this morning’s painful budget session in the House, I also was watching Twitter. You wouldn’t believe (actually you probably would) the Democrats and ‘gimmie, gimmie’ more tweets that are being put out there.

Gonads and Melanin

by Steve MacDonald March 22, 2015

It’s not about classic literature anymore.  It’s not even something as obtuse as ‘English’ or that unctuous term (as in slippery) ‘Language Arts.’  It’s about gonads and melanin. “…the UCLA English department—like so many others—is more concerned that its students encounter race, gender, and disability studies than that they plunge headlong into the overflowing riches […]

by Steve MacDonald January 14, 2015
Thumbnail image for Can Social Justice Lead to Critical Thinking?

Does critical thinking equal social justice? A local college president thinks so, and Kevin Kervick joins us (a professor at the same college) to explore the subject, political activism, adding some conservative diversity to social justice programs, culture, revolution, and even left handed albino lesbian studies. We always have great segments with Kevin.  Have a […]

Notable Quote – Stacy McCain

by Skip December 26, 2014

 Yet as Friedrich Hayek showed, social justice is a mirage — the utopia toward which radical egalitarian ideologues claim to be leading us does not exist, and can never exist, simply because human society requires social order and all social orders involve hierarchy. Once you realize that “equality” is a false goal, you realize that what progressives are […]

What Democrats Have Done

by Steve MacDonald October 22, 2014

When people who politicize everything in the pursuit of power spend twenty-trillion of someone elses dollars in just a few years, well that buys a lot of something, and where Democrats are concerned it is called progress.  No, it wasn’t for science, or bridges, or good paying Middle Class jobs,* or equality, or security, prosperity, […]

Blogline – Ah yes, that social justice thing is just so malleable

by Skip August 18, 2014

“I dunno, when I see someone on the news running out of an electronics store with a flat screen TV in his arms, my first thought is, ‘he must be fighting for social justice.’” I guess that Progressive moral relativism (as in “what’s your should be mine – I’m just making it so”) plays a […]

Shades of Ian Underwood – especially when the police start saying it

by Skip August 6, 2014

During the NH anti-gun bills debates, a gentleman by the name of Ian Underwood gave his testimony  to the NH Legislature on what he saw as a large problem in the legislators’ behavior in ignoring their oaths of fidelity to the NH Constitution: The first is that a bill like this undermines respect for the very […]

Problem is, Obama has said stuff like this before

by Skip June 27, 2014

This just struck me the wrong way, but given the attitude he exudes, I’m not surprised: Obama Jokes about Executive Order to Make Boys Play It’s funny, because President Obama issues a lot of orders. “And last month, three young girls wrote to me that boys aren’t fair because they don’t pass the ball in gym […]

Social Justice is neither Social or is a manifestation of “Justice”

by Skip April 1, 2014

Jonah Goldberg does a short video on the true meaning of “Social Justice” – and those that love Social Justice hate the philosophy of Individual Freedom / Free Society given to us by our American Founders.  It means a removal of any and all Freedoms necessary to accomplish a Redistributional endpoint (aka, Socialism).  some of […]

In this week’s video, author and columnist Jonah Goldberg tells you how to stump your left-wing friends: Ask them to define the term “social justice.” That should be easy, right? After all, the term is everywhere: on websites and college campuses, in the mission statements of businesses and charities, and in United Nations reports. But […]

This “social justice” idiocy is supposed to promote “unit cohesion” – Not? Oh, that IS the point.

by Skip October 31, 2013

You know, this whole “social justice” thing is just Cultural Marxism wrapped up in Political Correctness. This is meant to do one thing and one thing only – install guilt into a vast majority of people have done nothing wrong. Sure, the colleges are full of this crap – seemingly, they can’t turn out decent […]

Want a concrete example of how NHListens is listening to other “Masters” rather than citizens?

by Skip February 17, 2013

Listening – or evangelizing on behalf of other Masters?  Yes, NHListens is tracking the ‘Grok as I pointed out here.  I decided to point it out because it does seem that NHListens and the Carsey Institute (two peas in the Progressive Pod and definitely not organizations exactly loving NH Traditions or the Live Free or […]

The real differences between Republicans and Democrats – Tyranny #2

by Skip February 6, 2013

I stumbled on this post over at PowerLine – where they had abstracted an entire post by David Horowitz: “How Republicans can win” that talks about the severe differences in how Conservatives / Republicans view life vs how Progressive / Democrats do.  Since Horowitz was heavily involved in the New Left in the sixties, he […]

There’s No Justice In It At All

by Steve MacDonald June 4, 2012

Having laid out the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute as a think-tank puppet for the advancement of taxation and the Democrat parties social and economic justice agenda in New Hampshire, I felt compelled to follow that up with an addendum on the deeper evil that lay beneath the facade of a “well meaning” left wing […]

Notable Quote – Dr. Thomas L. Krannawiter

by Skip January 26, 2012

In the Progressive view, the ends of government cannot be limited to protecting natural rights, because nature supplies no rights, and positive rights created by government change over time. Thus limited government is replaced with government of unlimited power and scope, what some political scientists call the administrative state. Rejecting natural justice, the liberal mind […]

ONE Vote NH Censoring Facebook Comments?

by Steve MacDonald October 11, 2011

Recent remarks were posted on the ONE Campaign New Hampshire Facebook page asking if their group was the same one that promoted global redistribution of wealth. A follow-up comment indicated that this was correct. Both were promptly “vanished.” Deleted from the page. Kind of the way political opponents are ‘vanished’ in many of the countries struck by the kind of poverty ONE campaign claims to be fighting against.

The ONE campaign is back in New Hampshire and looking for fresh souls to trap in its twisted web of deception.  While liberals are always ripe for a sob story ONE is always looking for unsuspecting so-called conservatives and republicans to call friend.  And the GOP is easy pray.  After years of being framed by […]
