Saluting The Flag Is A Sign Of Respect For Every American

Moral Equivalency Between White Supremacists and Antifa?

Trump's poor judgment call to relitigate his initial statement was compounded by how he re-litigated it on the merits. Ahistorical moral equivalences are not helpful and neither is media hysteria. We've gone from Chris Matthews' thrills to Chuck Todd's chills and neither are cultural Marxists who want to erase history. Is there a moral equivalence between white supremacists and groups such as Antifa? Vanderbilt Political Science Professor, Dr. Carol Swain joins Dan and Amy to discuss identity politics and its implications on culture.

The Unsalvageables

President Trump’s victory produced a plethora of Leftist think pieces plotting their escape from their coastal bubbles so they are never so blindsided again.

After a six month probationary period, can we finally dismiss as disingenuous their intellectual curiosity?

During that time, the Left has written more Russian fiction than Boris Pasternak.

The budding totalitarians on college campuses have attacked professors, shouted down the Education Secretary, and argued that white men do not enjoy First Amendment rights.

In Chicago, a group of “nasty women” hosted an art exhibit/fundraiser for Planned Parenthood featuring an anti-Trump painting stained with vaginal blood from the artist.

In Phoenix, the city used taxpayer dollars to help finance a billboard depicting Trump as a money-grubbing Nazi.

Storied MIT linguistics professor Noam Chomsky, whose rhetoric is virtually indistinguishable from that of Maxine Waters, claimed recently that the Republican Party is the greatest threat to mankind’s survival in the history of the world.

I don’t see much common ground to be forged here and, frankly, I’m not terribly interested in indulging lunacy.

I’ll continue to consume the literate Left’s content for comparison/contrast purposes. But I’m not going to let their mania consume even a moment of my consideration.

If I’m a deplorable then they are the unsalvageables.

I say we let them stay squirreled away in their bubbles and we pop them again in November 2018.

Mugged By Reality At Middlebury

College campuses are places of “emotional coddling” and “intellectual impoverishment”, wrote leftist New York Times columnist Frank Bruni.

“(The student protesters) couldn’t look at me directly, because if they had, they would have seen another human being,” wrote Middlebury College professor Allison Stanger, a self-identified liberal, who suffered a concussion as a result of being assaulted by leftist students protesting the presence of eminent sociologist Dr. Charles Murray on campus.

Stanger’s assault has forced the Left to address campus culture at America’s elite universities.

What the safe space social engineers find is that they’ve lost control of the young Frankensteins whose minds they filled with agitprop rather than intellectual curiosity.

At Middlebury, Stanger was mugged by the reality, quite literally, that there is no safe space for dissent from the established campus orthodoxy.

By abetting a contrarian view on campus, Stanger crossed into the enemy camp and thus became fair game.

In her description of the violence, Stanger offers the clichéd contention that we are at “a boiling point.”

Are we?

Were we at a boiling point during the Obama Presidency?

Or is it more accurate to say that thuggery is what leftist students have been taught since the 1960s by the Che Guevara set in academia and subsequently learned to use alternatively in collaboration with them or against them to extract what they what?
