The Real Reason for the Left’s Double Standard on Hate Speech
By Dr. Michael L. Brown   |   08.15.18
Why is it that organizations like the SPLC can designate conservative Christians as hate groups while ignoring radical leftists like Antifa? Why is it that Facebook and Google and YouTube and Twitter appear to punish conservatives disproportionately for alleged violations of community guidelines? The answer is as disturbing as it is simple. The left believes it is so morally and intellectually superior to the right that it can see nothing wrong with its extreme positions and hostile words. Is it wrong to be intolerant of bigots? Is it wrong to hate (or even punch) a Nazi?
Facebook Censoring? Say it Ain’t So!
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.10.18
Among the reasonable and fairly well-defined criteria Twitter uses to censor content is this more ambiguous criterion: content “that incites fear about a protected group” or that “degrades someone.” Does Twitter think it’s degrading to say “homosexual acts degrade persons”?...

By Robert Knight   |   07.14.18

By Laurie Higgins   |   06.23.18
On Friday night, Stephanie Wilkinson, owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, kicked out Sarah Huckabee Sanders and seven members of her family because Sanders works for the president. “Progressives”–once again demonstrating their inability to think analogically–believe this...
Facebook, Twitter, Google, Amazon in Cahoots w/SPLC
By Michael F. Haverluck   |   06.09.18
Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon reportedly all have working partnerships with the far-left group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which is notorious for giving conservative organizations unwarranted “hate group” labels.
I’m No Murphy Brown
By Pat Hickey   |   06.08.18
I hated being a single parent. Still do. I am sure my grown children agree that being raised by Homer Simpson was horrible. They are all healthy and productive members of society, despite being raised by an ogre, in no...
Ireland Votes to Kill Unborn Babies with the Help of Facebook, Twitter and Google
By John Biver   |   06.01.18
Last week the people of Ireland voted to repeal Ireland’s Eighth Amendment that granted “equal protection of the right to life of the preborn child and his or her mother.” After the repeal, “legislators will have the power to legalize...
Starbucks and Its Unconscious Employees
By Laurie Higgins   |   05.30.18
On Monday, there was a looong article in the Chicago Tribune's business section on Starbucks "unconscious bias" training (which, unless Starbucks' employees are unconscious, should probably be called "subconscious-bias training," but—to borrow from millennials—whatever).
Intolerant Journalist Demonstrates Biblical Ignorance
By Laurie Higgins   |   05.21.18
Dahleen Glanton, columnist for the Chicago Tribune, recently penned a column about homosexuality that began with this ironic statement: “It is painful to acknowledge one’s own intolerance.” Glanton doesn’t say who’s experiencing this pain, but one thing’s for sure: It’s...

By Laurie Higgins   |   05.10.18
There’s a troubling piece titled “Time for a Compromise on Transgenderism” posted on National Review online and written by purportedly conservative, “gay vegetarian”  J. J. McCullough. In condescending language, McCullough argues that it’s time for Americans to hop...
Michelle Wolf’s Lewd Lupine Pasquinade
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.30.18
Full disclosure: I hate roasts of any kind. White House Correspondents’ Dinner gut-busting pasquinade by jokester Michelle Wolf makes it difficult to refrain from being as despicable as she was. First, some of her jokes: “Of course, Trump isn’t here…....
You Don’t Want to be a Burden, Do You?
By Nancy Valko   |   04.30.18
An April 13, 2018 USA Today op-ed titled “Make an End-of-life plan or Lose your Money and Choices in your Dying Days” begins with the statement “End-of-life care can bankrupt your family and rob you of choices. End the denial about dying. Make a plan in case you end up seriously ill and frail.” Ms. Bryant is very upfront about using the economic argument about aging and the enormous toll it can take financially and personally on the family as well as medical costs.
‘Net Neutrality’ in Illinois: Just One More Leftist Act of Deception
By John Biver   |   04.17.18
Last year the Federal Communications Commission overturned the Obama-era policy (referred to as “net neutraliy”) that “had placed Internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon under the strictest-ever regulatory oversight.” The “net neutrality” debate has gone for several years but...
Defying Hollywood, ‘I Can Only Imagine’ Soars at the Box Office, Resonates with Viewers
By Tami Jackson   |   03.23.18
Hollywood stands as an eclectic, self-congratulatory private club, whose mainline members flaunt wealth and hedonism, pontificating re guns and violence and the #MeToo scandals, while simultaneously producing films overflowing with guns and violence and promiscuous and perverse sex. That coastal...
Aborting Down Syndrome People and the Monster That is Us
By Pat Hickey   |   03.12.18
I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to do the testing for Down syndrome. Back then, it was amniocentesis, performed after 15 weeks; now, chorionic villus sampling can provide a...
