By Laurie Higgins | 05.25.17Pray for our nation’s little ones. If they manage to survive the womb and are lucky enough to have both a mommy and a daddy, they may end up at their local library or bookstore for story time with drag queens. I kid you not. A widely circulated Associate Press (AP) news video exposes the repugnant spectacle.
By Robert Knight | 05.13.17Many years ago, I witnessed what happens when people who prevent others from speaking are not dealt with promptly. During a “Firing Line” taping with William F. Buckley at Bard College in New York State on the topic of “Resolved: The ACLU is full of baloney” (the short answer is “yes”), two female activists stood up and started chanting “women of color have no voice.”
05.09.17The legal academy is a strange place. It differs from other intellectual disciplines in that legal scholarship is published mainly in student-edited law reviews, not peer-reviewed journals. Most faculty members at elite law schools have never practiced law, or have done so only briefly and usually without professional distinction. The curricula at many of the nation’s law schools are larded with trendy courses devoted to identity politics and social issues du jour. Elite law schools eschew the teaching of “nuts and bolts” fundamentals, deriding such practical instruction as resembling a “trade school.”
By Laurie Higgins | 05.08.17The snowflake metaphor for Millennials who quash speech that they don’t like seems particularly inapt. These petulant ruffians are more like jackhammers. Snowflakes are delicate, complex, singular, ineffably beautiful and naturally occurring. They fall from the sky through no human interventio
By Laurie Higgins | 04.19.17According to a survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and a survey from the Public Religion Research Institute, there is a marked increase in millennials “identifying” as bisexual or as other peculiar sexual “identities.”
By Monte Larrick | 04.12.17The LGBTQ agenda gets the silent treatment in classrooms in Illinois on April 21st. Also, if House Bill 1785 becomes law, gender-confusion activists are likely to have their demands met in school restrooms and locker rooms.
By Matt Walsh | 04.04.17A concerned parent sent me this. It’s the school newspaper for Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School in Falls Church, Virginia. Among the other hard hitting pieces of journalism targeted at children, ages 11-13, is an article on “transgender rights.” The...
By Michael F. Haverluck | 04.03.17Renowned pro-family advocate Dr. James Dobson is inciting Christian parents across the United States to pull their children from public schools and protect them from the progressive anti-Christian teaching by homeschooling them and putting in church-run schools.
By Laurie Higgins | 03.29.17One of the central tactics used by liberals to impose coercively an incoherent and science-denying “trans” ideology on, well, everyone, is to hurl epithets at dissenters. And if that means adults hurling epithets in the direction of children, so be it. Leftists can’t have children running around our streets even thinking the emperor has no clothes. And they certainly can’t have girls refusing to share restrooms with the emperor.
By Laurie Higgins | 03.17.17Close on the heels of the “progressive” boondoggle at New Trier High School, another affluent North Shore high school has its own boondoggle in the offing. Though smaller in scope (thus far) and far less public than all-school dogma day at New Trier, the contempt for diverse views, the brazenness of the attempt at censorship, and the presumptuousness of the staff members involved are no less remarkable.
