Last weekend, neo-Nazis and white supremacists rallied to “Unite the Right” in Charlottesville, Virginia, after a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee was removed. They were confronted by militant Antifa protesters who marched alongside peaceful protesters. As chaos ensued, at least three people were killed and dozens injured. Many rightly criticized President Trump for his failure to condemn the white supremacist alt-right by name in the aftermath of Charlottesville. Nevertheless, his claim that “a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit and they were very, very violent” should not be overlooked. As a Jewish...Read More

Last week, the New York Times reported that the Trump administration will direct its Department of Justice to attack affirmative action policies in college admissions. CNN reports that the DOJ will specifically focus on the plight of Asian American students facing racial discrimination in Harvard’s admissions department.

However, this is now an opportunity for conservatives to test their own commitment to principle and reject this encroachment of the federal government onto private institutions. What is Affirmative Action? Affirmative action is a disgusting policy that benefits no one. It’s racist, and it undermines the...Read More
Game of Thrones is the greatest show on television, and its top producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are truly brilliant. Thankfully, Weiss and Benioff are working on a new series to air after GoT ends, called “Confederate.” This new show is based on alternate history where the South had won the Civil War. As a result, slavery is still in existence. Predictably, leftist snowflakes are banding together to shut it down. However, the fact that SJWs take offense to it is wildly unsurprising: they take offense to pretty much anything, and that hypersensitivity is out of control. Taking Offense Critics...Read More
Following a brutal terror attack at the Temple Mount, the Israeli government installed metal detectors at the gates used by Palestinian Muslims to prevent future attacks. The Temple Mount is the third holiest site in Islam, but it is the holiest site in Judaism. Yet, Jews and tourists alike must go through metal detectors before entering the site. Established after the liberation of Jerusalem in 1967, the status quo is absurdly one-sided against Jews, and constitutes control over the Temple Mount by the Muslim Waqf. The Waqf forbids Jews from praying there, and they have Jews arrested at the...Read More
On Sunday, the Christian Sabbath of all days, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd made a truly asinine statement on Twitter about Christianity. I am Catholic. Being Christian is a state of being. Practicing love. Some of the most Christian folks i know in life are atheists. — Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) July 16, 2017 The belief in God, and a good and all-powerful God, is a fundamental pillar of the Judeo-Christian tradition. This fact is so obvious, and this tweet so intensely stupid, that it is truly painful to have to explain it. Suggesting that “being Christian is a state...Read More
