Actor Sam Elliott stirred up a predictable passel of trouble recently with an epic rant about an overrated movie. He upset woke Hollywood with what Variety’s Marc Malkin calls “caustic and homophobic comments” about Oscar nominated Western “The Power of the Dog.” Caustic? Yes. He called the movie a “piece of shit,” wondered why it was filmed in New Zealand and asked “Where’s the Western in this…

Ya gotta feel bad for the South by Southwest folks. Just once a year, they want to get together to publicly examine their virtues, hold their shining intellects up for consideration and propose ways they can drag the rest of us mouth breathers up onto their enlightened plane. Is it too much to ask to want to talk about wind farms and vegan bologna and the “Latina Power Pipeline” among friends?…

If it's any consolation Tucson, those drag queens putting on a show in your public high school might otherwise be hanging around libraries offering to read to preschoolers. According to AZ Free News, Tucson High Magnet School (THMS) will be hosting “its first-ever drag show in early May.” First-ever? (OMG! Welcome to the 21st Century, Tucson.) Don’t worry, though: school district “spokeswoman…

J.K. Rowling is well on her way to becoming “She Who Must Not Be Named.” It doesn’t seem to bother her. The world’s most famous (or infamous) TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist) still maintains that biology has meaning and dudes who claim to be chicks aren’t actually chicks. For this, she regularly faces the Twitter mob. On March 8, Rowling saw a puffy tweet from the U.K. Labour Party…

Language warning. Sam Elliott is retiring from acting. At least, he doesn’t seem to want to work in Hollywood anymore. If he did, he wouldn’t have uncorked a glorious rant about a “piece of shit” Oscar-nominated movie and its LGBT sacred cow(boys). According to Variety, the iconic horse opera star doesn’t have much use for “Power of the Dog” and the “allusions of homosexuality throughout the…

Long before “Republicans Pounce!” they had “wedge issues.” They used them to divide people and, according to an AP report, they still do.  Today’s GOP wedge issue of choice is transgenderism – you know, the mental health problem that’s sweeping the nation? Conservatives and Republicans (and lots of other normal folks) are bewildered and revulsed by the trans craze, and so it’s coming up in GOP…

Next time you hear somebody say parents should have no say over their kids’ school curricula, mention Sara Adams. She’s a 6th grade English Language Arts teacher in Phoenix. Her portfolio also seems to include trans ideology indoctrination. Adams was recently recorded in class at Altadeña Middle School telling students that their parents' and grandparents' “hard line” regarding gender is…

Laura Hermer inhabits a strange universe, one in which establishing an absolute right to an abortion is somehow “a clear legal solution that should satisfy all sides” in the abortion debate. Worse, in her world, killing a child is “pro-child.”  Hermer, a Minnesota law professor, wrote in MinnPost that: Pro-life advocates presumably want viable pregnancies to yield babies who are loved and…

Pity the sports entity formerly known as "The Washington Football Team" (nee "The Redskins.") Until the George Floyd killing sent corporate America into unreasoning moral panic in 2020, the only people who had a problem with “The Redskins” were weenie Washington Post sports writers and weenie local Dem politicians. The fans loved the name. The owner loved the name. Heck, 90% of American Indians …

Editor's note: This article originally appeared on Newsbusters in 2019. Canada's been messed up for a while. It’s sometimes hard to remember, but just 75 years ago, thousands of Canadian soldiers assaulted Juno Beach, fought like (very polite) grizzlies, and left a trail of dead Nazis and empty Molsons from Normandy up through Belgium, Holland and on into Northern Germany. And many of them did…
