 White Privilege at the Capital Riot, Or More Twisted Left-Wing Narratives?

BLM White House Response

In a Vanity Fair article by Jimmie Briggs, Biggs spins a narrative that suggests - "the unbearable whiteness of storming the capitol." Well, ... here we go again, the race card. Nevertheless, let's get into the specifics of the charges to set the record straight. Briggs states: To be clear, when I refer to whiteness, I mean the privileges, expectations, and elevated humanity afforded those in American society whose skin happens to be white; who exist daily in varying degrees of proximity to white people; who actively seek the affirmation of and their raison d’être from white people—and/or those whose aspirations for themselves, their families, and their communities are modeled on some kind of reflection of whiteness. Televised scenes showed thousands of

The Insincerity of White Privilege

White Privilege

Calling out leftist double standards, fraud, and hypocrisy is a full-time job for conservative writers. Although every smidgen of flatulence is still holy air when belched from Obama's derriere (as opposed to Ivanka Trump, who was profiled in a case of Pulitzer-winning journalism for blaming a peer in high school about passing gas), it would be refreshing to see the "Democracy Dies in Darkness" Washington Post engage in some fact-checking every now and again on Democrats. Of course, since Joe Biden would sooner speak coherently than the Post would critique his current mumblings, it is up to intrepid conservative writers to fill the void of real journalism. Elected officials practicing doublespeak, like Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and California Governor Gavin Newsome

The Intersection of Fatherhood and Politics

Father and Son

Nothing makes a man more complete than the birth of their first child. Their arrival in this world is a visual, sensorial, and emotional memory that can never be forgotten. To the chagrin of my wife, this moment was also the birth of untold politically related reaffirmations. Sorry, Honey. I always knew that abortion would never be an option for me. In those "If I were king" conversations, I usually sat on the fence; I personally couldn't go through with it, but surely the other peasants could make their own decisions. From the most impersonal glance at data, if you figure 18 million black babies have been aborted since Roe V. Wade, and the median household income for black families is

Critiquing, Critical Race Theory

Critical Race Theory

President Donald Trump recently banned federal agencies from conducting racial sensitivity training related to "white privilege" and "Critical Race Theory" (CRT) that Trump says amounts to "divisive and anti-American propaganda. Citing "press reports," Russell Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget, decried the "millions of taxpayer dollars" spent on such programs "across the Executive Branch" in a two-page memo. Such training "not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce," Vought wrote, adding that "we cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce." In this light, one might ask,

Columbus Was a Man of Vice, Virtue, and Victory

Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus didn’t know where he was going; didn’t know what he was going to do when he arrived; didn’t know where he was when he got there and did it all with other peoples’ money. Like many progressive Democrats and pathetic RINOs.As every schoolchild knows, Columbus had difficulty funding his trip to the New World. He asked for funding from various kings, but he found them reluctant to write him a check. Maybe it was because he was so demanding, even arrogant. He demanded the title of Admiral, the rulership of all lands he might discover, and one-tenth of all things of value in those lands. He then demanded the sponsoring king make him a knight. Yes, he was

Household Incomes Reflect Values, Not Racism

Households

In 2018, the median income for white households was $65,777. This is substantially higher than the worldwide median household income, which in 2013 was listed as hovering around just $10,000. Ask a conservative and they'll point to this as evidence of how great and privileged it is to be an American. Ask anyone else and they'll point to white privilege and systemic advantages. No doubt, a median income of $65,000 affords a lot of opportunities. Even after accounting for taxes that siphon 25% away from the principal, an average mortgage payment of $1,100 in 2020, and an average monthly car payment of $350, there is still about $31,000 left for other expenses. It doesn't offer a lavish lifestyle, but with proper

Antifa Loves To Endorse What It Alleges To Hate

Portland Antifa Camp

A common statement of leftists is that if they did not have double standards they would have no standards at all. The latest such example comes from an intrepid YouTuber who did some exploration in the failed city of Portland. The obvious question that no one in the media seems to care about is how so many unemployed and talentless young people are able to engage in their endless tantrums without suffering for lack of basic necessities. How are they living - eating, sleeping, and functioning - despite no apparent ability nor desire to procure such remedies to meet their baser needs? The answer comes to us, not surprisingly, in the form of government handouts. Yes, the government that they claim

The Reeducation of Educators, Part 2: Indoctrinating Students Through Social Justice

Education Activism

The public school system is beyond repair, and amazingly, parents don't seem to notice or care. It all needs to change - the awareness, the caring, and most of all, the system itself. At the core of the problem, educational programs are guided by social justice theory and therefore reforms within classrooms and districts are guided by a revolutionary lens of racial reckoning and economic redistribution. As social justice cannot be reconciled with facts, science, or merit, this is ripping apart the very notion of traditional learning expectations. Part 1 of this series explored that conundrum vis-a-vis student management and the physical harm your child faces when they attend school. As it stands, actual student violence is tolerated at the same

You Need To Watch The Documentary Uncle Tom

Uncle Tom

It is both a dismal reflection and depressing statement of the times in which we live that a film like Uncle Tom is considered controversial and worthy of media censorship. For daring to reject the prevailing narrative of black victimhood and instead choosing to empower the black community through individual actions, it has already been largely ignored by conventional media outlets. To no one's surprise, and to the film's point, black conservative opinions do not matter. Hence a review three weeks in the making; if this film inexplicably escaped your radar, time to put it back on there. Sometimes second waves can be good. Released on Juneteenth, Uncle Tom offers an alternative view, one of uplift and optimism, that run counter to

Race-Hustling CNN Declares All Whites Racist

CNN

First, let's acknowledge the hypocrisy in the headline. CNN loves white people's viewership, clicks, and money. In previous articles, here and here, I have aimed my critique of the ailing network to Don Lemon's unfathomable positions regarding race. Since then, an illuminating Twitter video surfaced which reintroduced us to a younger Lemon, one who was in complete agreement with an assessment of the black community by former Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly. No doubt most conservatives already know of Lemon's self-serving duplicity, but even this is appalling. It is worth noting that CNN was founded by a white (Ted Turner), who was married for a time to a white America-hater (Jane Fonda) and is currently helmed by a white CEO (Jeffrey
