Free Speech on Campus

0 Comments

Are we limiting free speech on college campuses? Are we raising thin-skinned, fools that cannot hear opposing ideas? I’m sharing a John Stossel video, because even the Left recognizes this.

Regressive: Outrage Has Replaced Honesty

I’ve seen Dave Rubin a number of times on Louder With Crowder. Good man. A lot of good points here too. What used to be “progressive” no longer is.

As a dad, I love that Nintendo has added this functionality. I wish Netflix or Hulu had this too.

Political Divisiveness Is a Vice

0 Comments

If you look at this like a sport. If you look at this like a battle against your neighbor, you’ll choose anything as a knife against the other side. And that itself is a—what’s the opposite of a virtue? … That’s a vice. Political divisiveness is a vice. But like a lot of vices, it’s super seductive. So you indulge in it, until it bites you. And then you go, oh, darn, the wages of sin is death. And it makes you question having indulged in a vice … Picking sides is a vice rather than picking ideas.

I have to say that Stephen Colbert has been a guilty pleasure of mine for some time. As a conservative, I have often been in the sights of his jokes. But, his humility and willingness to quote Scripture and scriptural concepts rank him highly in my book. This interview, all of it, is a great way to spend your Friday morning. I could share a half dozen quotes from this, but instead, I’ll tell you to watch it too, as his delivery of those quotes is just as important.

Hate Speech Doesn’t Exist

0 Comments

Who get to decide what is hate speech?
How much of “hate speech” is protected under the 1st amendment?
What limitations should there be?
Who are the arbiters?
Where does the idea of “hate speech” and political correctness come from?

Some things are super important. The Founding Fathers saw freedom of speech was so important that it was in the 1st amendment. And more over, they sought to protect the speech of those they didn’t agree with.

Mansplaining

to explain something to someone, typically a man to woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing

Likely the first, and very likely the last, time that the word “mansplaining” will be used here, but it’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw this video. Here you go: Van Jones telling a woman that she, as a woman, should have voted for Hillary Clinton because Hillary Clinton is a woman.

Just remember, when your relatives are trying to make you feel guilty for being born white this holiday, most of those arguments are myths and lies.

Hail Trump? Racism Is Horribly Ugly.

0 Comments

Racism, real racism, is horribly ugly.

We should hire three or four [African-American] ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the [African-American] is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the [African-American] population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

And:

Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant … We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.

But before you think those quotes came from a prominent, right-wing Trump supporter: those are from Margaret Sanger. The founder of Planned Parenthood. A woman that Hillary Clinton admired:

I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life.

See, racism, no matter which side it comes from is evil. No matter if it is businesses offering bonuses to not hire white men or a woman starting a business with the intent to eliminate the stocks (of blacks) or 200 white supremacists meeting in Washington. We need to remember to judge a man by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
