One question I frequently get is something along the lines of “How did college campuses get this way?”

And by “this way” people refer to the leftist intolerance of opposing viewpoints, now expressed through the misnomered “social justice” movement and Social Justice Warriors. My response is pretty consistent, that we abandoned the...

Twitter, an invaluable news aggregator when properly run and used, has seemingly taken aim at conservatives and those advocating conservative causes.

In early January, Twitter stripped Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos (@Nero on Twitter) of his “verification,” saying he violated the anti-harassment Terms of Service.

“Social justice” activism at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, is becoming self-parody, and not in a good way.

We have covered extensively the anti-Israel activism that has led to anti-Semitic incidents in 2014 and 2016. Among other things, in 2014 Jewish students who stood up at a campus-wide forum were mocked and jeered...

The unexpected news that Antonin Scalia died was a punch in the gut.

While Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had many well-known speeches and quotes, I think it’s fair to say that his “I Have a Dream” speech is his most famous.

And in that most famous speech, the following line may be the most famous:

Three weeks ago the Huffington Post published an article detailing the distress of transgendered parents who breastfeed, “The Troubling Erasure of Trans Parents Who Breastfeed.”

The article describes the way gendered pronouns and attitudes are excluding men who nurse, and the legalities associated with challenging the heretofore female-centric endeavor of breastfeeding.

Does this go too far?

Of course it does. Comments by Donald Trump about a temporary ban on Muslim immigration, which almost certainly never will happen even if there were to be a President Trump, hardly compare to round-up for extermination. There is no equivalent — fortunately — of Kristallnacht aga...
