We Are Breitbart (NYC Splinter Cell)

We Are Breitbart (NYC Splinter Cell)

  New York City can often feel like an alien environment for those who prize rationality and individualism over collectivist groupthink and social justice campaigns designed to distract you from the fact that public section unions and non-profits exercise a stranglehold over the decision-making process. Our mayor is a Cold War Era relic who fetishizes...

The Shoe Drops

The Shoe Drops

The Daily Telegraph has the latest on an ongoing anti-terror operation occurring in the suburbs of Paris. No doubt the New York Times will publish a full spread on its front page tomorrow morning lamenting the Islamophobic attitudes of Frenchmen who refuse to embrace the multicultural beauty of their new society.

Cowardice, Not Compassion

  Update: As promised by Brit Hume, Fox News has republished the offending cartoons. If you’re waiting expectantly for other drive-by media to follow suit, don’t hold your breath. There’s only one religion in contemporary society whose mockery is verboten.  Mark Steyn, as usual, cuts to the heart of the matter. The refusal by...

Revisionist History

Revisionist History

We’d like to wish our readers a blessed Easter, or a happy Passover-for those who are commemorating the Jews’ exodus from bondage in Egypt. Today also happens to be the birthday of Cesar Chavez, the founder of the United Fruit Workers and the force chiefly responsible for ending the notorious bracero program. It should...

The RNC Goes Full-On Stupid

Read it for yourself, courtesy of FAIR. If there’s one thing you can always count on, it’s the Republican Party’s inability to do basic arithmetic. Naturalizing and enfranchising over ten million natural Democrats is apparently the GOP’s best idea to win over the hearts of the burgeoning electorate. Chances are they’re wrong in that...

Achieving The Dream

Achieving The Dream

Martin Luther King Jr. is perhaps the most iconic symbol of this country’s struggle for civil rights during the latter half of the 20th century. He also symbolized the aspirations-social, economic, and spiritual-of black Americans. That’s why the official commemoration of his birth-marked by a federal holiday yesterday-is the perfect occasion to examine the...
