The College of Holy Cross, a Catholic school, has decided to drop its knight mascot and change the name of the school paper because it links them to the horrible violence that occurred during the Crusades. Because, you know, only the Christians did horrible things during the Crusades.

Ithaca, NY, is a notoriously liberal town, and is the home of Cornell University.

Ithaca High School’s spring musical was “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” A story whose message is one of inclusiveness and acceptance should be welcomed and encouraged.

President Trump has an amazing knack for pushing leftist buttons.  His trolling of the media is epic; they always bite, chasing his squirrels and making genuine donkeys of themselves in the process.

The latest example of this involves a “saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again” tweet and an ad released by America First Policies. ...

Alex Kozinski was perhaps the most well-known member of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and was its former Chief Judge.

It’s hard to characterize Judge Kozinski in terms of the political conservative/liberal split. He was nominated by Ronald Reagan, but because he was on the 9th Circuit, popular opinion tends to...

The left just doesn’t learn.  Their laser-like fixation on issues that mean absolutely nothing to normal Americans has left them in the political wilderness, but they just keep on going.

New York City’s subway service, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), has decided that the terms “ladies” and “gentleman” are offensive.  Or they...

The Biloxi school district has pulled Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird from its 8th grade syllabi because it contains the “N-word.”
