Pride Parade Shows Their True Colors, Bans Jewish Flags

Today in Chicago, several Jewish members of the LGBTQAI+ community were told that they weren’t allowed to fly their Star of David flags at the “Dyke March”. The “Dyke March” is a variant of the typical Chicago Pride Parade, claiming to place a larger emphasis on social justice and being more inclusive. Ironically this is their reasoning for banning the Star of David from their event, as in their mind it is a hateful symbol. When questioned how the symbol of the Jewish people and the nation of Israel was hateful, the organizers of the “Dyke March” claimed that they were “anti-Zionist” and “Pro-Palestine”.

Why You Need to Stop Worshipping Hacks Like Johnny Depp

When musicians, actors, directors, and writers all echo the same constant violent rhetoric, it makes you stop and wonder why they made these statements to begin with. Sure, Madonna could have just been venting  when she said she wants to blow up the White House, but what if just one of her fans didn’t think she was joking? What if that one person also loved the Avengers, and watched its director, Joss Whedon, gather all of his favorite superhero actors in one video that called the current president a crook, a villain, and a liar? What if that one person also follows Rachel Maddow on Twitter, and sees her day after day accuse the president of hacking the election with Russia?

What Karen Handel’s Win in Georgia Says About the State of the Democratic Party

In case you weren’t paying attention, a huge political experiment was occurring in Georgia’s 6th district these past months. The former house of representatives member resigned from his position to take a spot in Trump’s White House, so the seat was open for the taking. The two people running to fill the role were Jon Ossoff and Karen Handel, and they couldn’t have been more representative of the parties they represent. Jon Ossoff is a 30 year old documentary filmmaker and Democrat, serving as a political aide for Rep. Hank Johnson.

What Otto Warmbier’s Death Shows Us About North Korea

To keep it concise, the North Korean people are living in a complete nightmare of a nation. The North Korean government was only allowed to exist in order to help prop of communism in that region, and was part of the Soviet’s Cold War with the U.S. back in the mid-20th century. It was cute for the Soviet’s to parade around the Kim family and point out how well the nation was doing, despite all of their resources coming from the Soviet’s. They were literally a show pony, being trotted around in defense of the evil ideology of communism.

How Reactions to #FreeLaura Show the Split in Approach on the Right

People are inherently tribal, and will always want to take a side, and last night was no different. I agree with the rationality of Laura and her supporters. Rep. Scalise is still in the hospital after getting shot in a targeted attack from a Bernie supporter just days ago. Public figures like Ann Coulter, Lauren Southern, and Milo Yiannopoulos literally have riots and violence incited against them when they want to speak at public events. Our own Vice President was publicly chastised when he went to a production of Hamilton in New York. If the left wants to handle the political game like this, why doesn’t the right get to return the favor?

How New Media Pioneers Alex Jones and Dave Rubin Stood Against Fake News Today

For a long time now the keepers of old media have been trying their best to sink their already failing businesses even further into the depths of irrelevance. Publications like the New York Times and Washington Post put out false headline after false headline, and misreport so often I immediately scroll to the bottom of every article to read the corrections. The personalities of failing network news like CNN and Fox have had one career killing scandal after another. Its to the point where our president can yell, “FAKE NEWS” at a reporter, and most of America laughs and agrees with him.

How Japanese Anti-Terror Laws Raise Questions Over Safety Versus Freedom

Going through the list of 277 illegal acts, most of them make sense, especially when you take into account Japan’s unique situation of being an ethnically homogeneous, hard working, and honor bound society, whose citizens still pay a worldwide penalty for the cruel and vicious acts of their ancestors. As someone who supports a strong stance against terror, I welcome preemptive action and instituting order through law. That being said, some of these so called “terrorist actions” are ridiculous and clearly have a different motive.

Why We Should Be Worried About the Congressional Baseball Shooting

The irony here is that this blatant domestic terror attack did nothing for the political conversation in this nation. If Scalise’s armed security hadn’t been there, it’s safe to say that most of those Republican congressmen would have been killed today. If the roles had been reversed, and the shooter was a Trump supporter firing on Democrats, we wouldn’t hear the end of this day. If this man hadn’t been a manipulated pawn, radicalized by leftist hate speech, we would have heard every Hollywood figurehead and pop star crying about gun regulation. Instead, we get none of that.
