The Camp Fire was so deadly, so devastating, so aggressive, so… unstoppable due to government policies — “excessive wildfire prevention” — not “climate change.” Never count on people — like those at NPR — whose very job it is to report true things to you, to give you, you know… the truth.
If the “Russia Probe” doesn’t turn up any Russian dirt in Trump’s corner, look for the Left and the media to fabricate it. You heard it here first.
“Most of us in fact get turned on at night by the very same things that we might demonstrate against during the day. The erotic mind is not very politically correct.”
If you’ve followed this blog at all, you know that we believe the thesis question to be understated. Feminism has been illegitimate from the start. There are a bunch of extremely disconcerting revelations in the linked presentation.
There’s a marked increase in hostility on the Right, directed to the Right. However, if the Left were ever to engage in any kind of in-depth introspection, leftism would fall apart like the intellectual house-of-cards it is. It would become nothing more than a vast collection of tiny, spluttering splinter groups feuding and scrapping over tiny niche issues, well below the radar of a media corps too power-hungry to focus on such penny-ante flapdoodle.
“The notion that conservatives are the dogmatists and progressives are the free-thinkers is one of the greatest triumphs in the history of the intellectual marketing of bullsh**.

Needless to say, the press ran with the kids’ pretty tame response to Phillips’ provocation, and fabricated a false narrative: “MAGA hat-wearing high school kids engage in racist taunting of Native American elder, Nathan Phillips.” Why did the media invent and spread this lie? Simple: the fake narrative comported perfectly with the so-called “journalists'” preconceived notions.
