My wife screamed “sick in the head” when we saw this on the local news tonight.

We’ve previously covered the gun-shaped breakfast pastry and a pencil pointed like a gun.

Now this:

A Palmer, Massachusetts, 6-year old faced detention and suspension, and was forced to write an apology letter for bringing a GI Joe Lego toy gun...

Can I call ‘em or what?

On Sunday, I wrote about how the media and left-blogosphere were trying to move the Boston Bombing narrative to focus on what is wrong with how we treated the bombers as immigrants and away from the problem of Jihadism,

We have written numerous times about the depraved “pinkwashing” narrative, that Israel must be condemned by gay rights activists for publicizing the fact that it is the only country in the Middle East where gays are not persecuted.

That simple truth is too much for the anti-Israeli activists to bear because it...

Political takeover of language nears completion — AP bans “illegal immigrants”

Comments

Posted by  ▪  Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 4:03pm

There has been a political push to remove words like “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant” from usage as part of political messaging by amnesty/open borders advocates.

The preferred term is “undocumented,” as if it’s just a question of paperwork.  Once the language is redefined, it becomes a much easier sell to treat...

Boys are getting destroyed at just about every level of the educational spectrum relative to girls, and are keeping away from liberal arts colleges like they’re running from the grim reaper (which is not that bad an analogy considering the hard core feminist agenda at most liberal arts colleges).

Wow.  Just…wow:

For decades, hundreds of college players have gathered each year at the N.F.L.’s scouting combine, where their strength is tested, their speed is timed and, in a test to measure their intelligence, they are asked questions like “When a rope is selling 20 cents per 2 feet, how many feet...

It took five centuries before the strychnine of corruption and fatigue finally killed the Roman Empire (né Republic). It’s taken the U.S. about five decades to reach a point where such a suicidal whimper no longer seems unthinkable.
