In a really interesting turn of events, Steven Littlefield, a descendant of Major George Littlefield (a prominent figure in southern history), is suing Greg Fenves, the president of the University of Texas at Austin for removing four statues from the campus. Steven’s case is that the statues removed, as well as a portion of land … Continue reading UT Austin Sued by Confederate Descendant For Removing Statues
As I sit at a terminal in Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, I have a lot of time to reflect on the state of airport security in 2017. Everywhere around me are people of different nationalities, all of whom speak a wide array of languages, whether it's English, Spanish, French, Russian, Arabic and more. Although we … Continue reading Is the TSA a Necessary Evil?
Today I wanted to try out a new sort of blog, one where I respond to a comment left by a reader who disagrees with an opinion I have laid out on a blog. The catalyst for this decision was after I spent a solid 15 minutes writing out a reply to a valid question … Continue reading Response to a Reader: Why is the Affordable Care Act Considered a Failure?
Greg Fenves, the president of UT Austin, removed four statues from his campus in the dead of night, with a pedantic email justifying his action being sent to all students and faculty. What disgusts me about this action isn't that the statues were removed, (the fact that people are somehow offended by statues doesn't surprise … Continue reading UT Austin Capitulates to Fear, Removes Confederate Statues in the Middle of the Night
Ever since the drama in Charlottesville occurred, we’ve seen a harsh media shift from concerns of Russian hacking and data leaking, to coverage of a full blown culture war where nobody is safe, even the dead. As President Trump brought up in one of his many press conferences lately, every single person is being examined … Continue reading Why Don’t Democrats Support Freedom of Speech?
Today, CNN changed a headline covering Antifa from saying that “Antifa was fighting for peace with violence”, to “Unmasking the Leftist Antifa Movement”. It might not seem like much, but this sly title change is enough to totally recontextualize an entire movement. Time after time, the media has positioned hate groups like Black Lives Matter … Continue reading Why is the Media Defending Antifa?
In somewhat predictable news today, Breitbart head and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was removed from his position today by President Trump. The decision has been in the tea leaves for the past couple of weeks, and several publications, most notably insider Roger Stone on Infowars, predicted this move. Despite this, the decision … Continue reading BREAKING: Steve Bannon Fired From Trump’s Staff; Proves Nobody is Safe in White House
The current battles, both verbal and physical, in this nation are occurring because of a long, unsettled history that was bound to catch up to us at any time. The fact of the matter is that the way the American Civil War was resolved was probably the worst way our nation could've handled it, and … Continue reading Why Tearing Down Statues is a Slippery Slope We Should Be Avoiding
A worrying trend that's been popping up since the events in Charlottesville is how quickly everyone has been to justify the actions of hate groups and terrorists in order to condemn White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis. I've seen scores of celebrities and political figures say that immigration, radical Islam, and Antifa are somehow non-issues, and that … Continue reading It’s Time to Stop Justifying Evil
Looking at my nation today, I'm left feeling nothing but disgust. Not just at the wannabe Nazis venting their anger in Virginia today, but also at every single “counter protester” and at every single person who took to the internet today to virtue signal how bad racism is, as if that wasn't apparent. As for … Continue reading Evil Doesn’t Just Exist When You Want it To
