Left-wing education cheats children

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

The sudden decline in performance in the Edina (Minnesota) school system is what happens when educators think it is their job to impose their political views on students. Every American, in every state should make sure their elected school officials are focused on education – not political indoctrination.

Why Conservative Scott Pruitt Is Trump’s Best Cabinet Secretary

Choosing conservative Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as his EPA Administrator was one of President Trump’s more inspired choices. Through one brief memo Pruitt has made it clear the days of the government kowtowing to the environmental lobby are over.

Leftist Artists Show Hate for Houston Victims

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

To liberal elites, all Texans are somehow bigoted white Christian males. Even a hurricane can't restrain their rage about their satirical targets having any power in America. Cartoons like these strongly underline why so many Americans find that the secular-progressive media are either tone-deaf or blatantly hostile toward what (and Who) they hold dear.

Democrats Welcome Chairman Mao To America

Republicans and conservatives must force themselves to recognize that the violence perpetrated in Charlottesville, Philadelphia and Berkeley was just the probing movements of a coming hardcore Leftist revolution that intends through violence and intimidation to destroy constitutional liberty.

Will Democrats Bet That Their Party Can Fly with Only a Left Wing?

John Fund, National Review

Democrats are delusional if they now think that moving to the left will improve their prospects. It’s their left-wing tilt that voters revolted against throughout the Obama years. Putting all their bets on a Trump tailspin is precisely the kind of wishful wager that an old casino operator like Trump was always glad to see foolish gamblers make at his tables.

Shakespeare for Dummies

Ron Maxwell, The American Spectator

In their mindless bloodthirsty revels at the Public Theater in Central Park, what critics and audiences are really saying is that John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald were right. If your anger is genuine, if your rage is justified, it’s more than OK to take the law into your own hands. It is, in fact, your duty. Try as they will, Central Park’s silly thespians will not succeed in shrinking the Bard to fit neatly into their own petty political box. He cannot be reduced to a bumper sticker for their anti-democratic “resistance.”

A long history of leftist hatred

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

James Hodgkinson was a Trump-hating left-wing terrorist. And those who incite sick minds with images of a bloodstained decapitated head of the president, and cheer Central Park productions of “Julius Caesar” with the assassinated Roman Consul made up to look like the president, cannot evade moral culpability.

The Left's Flirtation With Trumpicide

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The left’s radicals marched through the institutions, stayed long enough to booby-trap the exits, and now find themselves back where they started, out of power and clawing for a return to it. Sitting in Upper West Side cafes dreaming of revolution, they wait for the next analgesic thrill of seeing Julius Trump stabbed to death in Central Park and keep far from their minds that other park where another assassin came close to turning that fiction into fact.

#Resist, They Said, And So Resist He Did

Melissa MacKenzie, The American Spectator

The media and the left have been exceedingly flippant about what the endgame of their exploitation and inflamed rhetoric. They’ve been callous about the violence perpetrated in their name. Should a reckoning come, they’ll be shocked and horrified and repelled by the “climate of hate” that they created. But they don’t see what they’ve done. They never do.

Democrats: More Radical, Less Chic

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

They are all San Francisco Democrats now, and they are in no mood to take the advice of adopting a “big tent” that they once self-servingly dispensed to defeated Republicans. The Democrats used to make fun of the routed Barry Goldwater for having said that “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” But their rallying cry against Trump, with a few modifications, sounds similar. Call it extremism in the defense of liberalism, with the only vice being the willingness to recognize one.

Grassroots rage and the Democrats' crackup

Salena Zito, New York Post

Liberals still believe they’re the side with the most power and influence because of their cultural dominance. The arts and entertainment world confirms their prejudices daily. The real world, however, does not. And so their expectations of what their congressional leadership is capable of don’t mesh with the reality that Schumer faces day in and day out.

By Any Means Necessary

The Inauguration Day demonstrations can serve as an object lesson for many Americans. First, they will give us a good picture of the bullet we dodged, the type of PC-induced intolerance that would have been more broadly infused into America had Hillary Clinton won the presidency. Second, we’ll get a really good inspection of what political correctness looks like in its more advanced stage—after it’s morphed literally into mob behavior.

Cesar Chavez: Anti-Immigration to His Union Core

Jeffery Lord, American Spectator

Cesar Chavez believed ferociously in the border of the U.S. because that border protected his union. The union Chavez founded, the United Farm Workers, set up a 100 mile “wet line” to keep “wetbacks” & “illegals” — yes, all of those are Chavez’s words — out of the U.S.

Gosnell Abortion Film Too Much for Kickstarter’s ‘Diverse’ Censors

Phelim McAleer, New York Post

It seems the Kickstarter “community guidelines” don’t respect traditional sentiments — indeed, those are the ones that raise red flags. We should all be appalled by the double standard.
