And another thing

Roger Clegg: Some Blunt Talk On Race

Some will regard the following guest post by Roger Clegg, president and general counsel of the Center for Equal Opportunity, as politically incorrect. I do not. I suspect, however, that I would have posted it even if I did, based on a belief that the best way to fight political correctness is by being willing […]

Hillary Now Lying About … Her Lying

At this late date anyone shocked by Hillary Clinton lying is like Captain Renault in Casablanca, who pronounced himself “shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here [a croupier hands Renault a pile of money].” Anyone who believes any of the various and inconsistent explanations and justifications of her claiming private ownership […]

Two Three Short (But Good) Pieces

My “THUMBS ON THE RACIAL SCALE AT UCLA, BERKELEY,” recently posted on Minding The Campus, will surprise no readers who are familiar with the way the University of California has complied (or not) with the non-discriminatory mandate of Prop. 209, but it may be interesting anyway. And you may also get a kick out of […]

All Lives Don’t Matter At The University Of Houston

If you are a student government leader at the University of Houston and you have the temerity to say that all lives matter, you will quickly become a former student government leader.

NCAA Throws Rocks From Inside Glass House

I neglected to note here that a few days ago I posted “NCAA Throws Rocks From Inside Glass House” on National Review Online’s Phi Beta Cons. And a few minutes ago I added the following Addendum to it: I’ve just noticed that Ed Whelan, over on Bench Memos, posted similar thoughts about the NCAA’s political correctness […]

Annals Of Democratic Hypocrisy

COMPARE: Press Release, House Democratic Caucus Newsroom: CHAIRMAN BECERRA: SECRET MONEY HIJACKS OUR DEMOCRACY JUDGE DENIES KAMALA HARRIS KOCH BROTHERS’ DONOR LIST: A conservative advocacy group backed by the Koch brothers won a First Amendment victory this week denying California Attorney General Kamala Harris access to the names of conservative nonprofit members and contributors. Harris, […]

Why Do So Many People Guffaw At The Pontifications Of Liberal Journalists?

If you want to know why so many people guffaw at the pontifications of liberal journalists, take at look at Todd Purdum’s fumbling attempt on Politico to explain “Why Can’t Hillary Stop Fudging The Truth?” Purdum’s answer: “Plainly put, Clinton herself has kept the issue alive over 25 years of public life, with long-winded, defensive, […]

A Multicultural Parody In Ann Arbor…

… Or it would be a parody if it weren’t all to real. See my post today on National Review Online’s Phi Beta Cons, “U-M Donor Retracts $3M Gift: Multicult Naming Guilt,” for a man-bites-dog story about a rich donor who withdrew his gift because his name would appear on the multicultural center he was […]

Transgender And The Transformation Of Civil Rights

I have a long (really long) essay today on Minding The Campus, “Transgender and the Transformation of Civil Rights.” Actually, its length notwithstanding, it’s only half an essay. The second half will be posted there in the next day or so. UPDATE (July 17) The second half has just appeared: “The Endless Muddle Of Transgender […]

Lynch Love

There are already demands that Loretta Lynch resign or be replaced as the nation’s top law (or is that love?) enforcement officer, after her recent outlandish comment in Orlando that “our most effective response to terror and hatred is compassion, unity and love.” But wait a minute. Maybe her comment is actually a much stronger condemnation […]
