Don’t want to teach your kid the Howard Zinn “America Sucks” spiel against Christopher Columbus? A left-wing journalist named David Leavitt will accuse you via Twitter of celebrating horrible crimes, you racist. Then he'll make a show of calling a child welfare agency on you. Have a black child? You’re still racist to Leavitt. It’s pretty unbelievable, but Leavitt actually pulled this hateful…

John Cleese abhors cancel culture and censorship, and he won’t shut up about it. This is bracing to free speech enthusiasts, but it annoys people who find cancel culture and censorship useful. GB News is among the former. The Guardian is squarely among the latter. GB News, a small, young right-leaning British TV network, has signed Cleese on to host a talk show starting next year. The Guardian,…

Want to get in on a growth industry? Learn about the exciting field of WCI – White Crime Identification. Academic credentials help, but all you really need is a Twitter account and a well-developed sense of outrage. If you can explain why even the slightest problem in the world is caused by something white people have done, are doing or may do in future, you can have a career in WCI. And the…

There’s a new right-wing bogeyman out there. He’s not all that different from previous reactionary monsters and, if you look closely, he’s not much different from the progressives who are wetting themselves over him. The terror du jour is Christian Nationalism, and Time Magazine has a fascinating primer on the subject by an academic named Andrew Whitehead.  “Christian nationalism,” Whitehead…

It’s not grooming. Really, it’s not. It’s just making sure that when kids are talking dirty with adults online, their parents won’t find out. And it’s sponsored by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE). What could be more innocent? According to AZFree News, parent Peggy McClain doesn’t see it that way, and she’s filed a lawsuit against ADE Superintendent Kathy Hoffman. McClain wants the “…

Whelp, say goodnight to Saturday Night Live. The skit show is limping into its 48th season and it hasn’t been funny in 10, 20 years? Creator Lorne Michael is about 110 and clearly out of ideas. But before he goes, he’s trying one last Hail Mary (is that what they call it in the CFL? Michaels is Canadian.) SNL announced September 15 it has hired “actor and comedian Molly Kearney,” who it says…

Switzerland – mountains, chocolates, watches, army knives, shady bank accounts and … bureaucrats snooping around people’s thermostats? It could happen this winter, if the Russia-Ukraine war continues and Putin cuts off the flow of gas to Western Europe.  According to the Daily Mail, “Switzerland is considering putting anyone who heats their rooms above 19C in jail for up to three years.” (That’s…

Hollywood people are just like us. They suffer the same heartbreaks and fears, feel the same loves and joys we do. Right? I really want to believe that, but then they speak. Take Jennifer Lawrence (please!). We learn from Variety that a in a new Vogue cover story Lawrence says she’s had two miscarriages before giving birth to her son. That’s tragic, terribly sad for any woman. Then she explains…

It’s stupid, reckless, racist, patronizing … but otherwise, Bank of America’s “Community Affordable Loan Solution” program is a great idea. BOA is floating no money down, no closing cost mortgages specifically for black and hispanic first-time homeowners. What could go wrong? According to a BOA press release, the program will start in “in certain Black/African American and/or Hispanic-Latino…

It’s been quite a week for Maia Kobabe. First, he or she (don’t know, don’t care) won the right to have a dirty book in libraries where kids can get to it. Then, Kobabe got Time Magazine (yep, still exists) to debase itself and refer to him or her with silly made-up pronouns. That’s power baby! A Virginia judge ruled Tuesday that Kobabe’s memoir, Gender Queer, couldn’t be banned from libraries…
