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**. Conservatives simply acknowledge that we have dogma, that some questions are settled, and that while they can be questioned or revisited, the amount of new evidence required to overturn them should be monumental and decisive, not faddish and rationalized in the emotions of the moment.”
Now, mind you, I don’t often disagree with the Great Kevin Williamson, because that moniker — the Great — is well deserved. Williamson is one of the finest, most intelligent, deepest observers of the local and world scenes.

We actually like to test out ideas, because we love the challenge of actually solving problems. The Left wants power. Continue reading Why The Right Always Wins Arguments With The Left
Okay… let’s spell it out. When these leftists figured that BECAUSE they were of the Left, they could expose themselves, rub themselves, grope, grab, kiss, rub, massage, fondle, caress, molest, hug, squeeze anyone, and anyTHING on anyone, they wanted… and get clean away with it… they were right. It was, and still is, Leftist Privilege! Continue reading A Hopeful Sign — the American Left is ALREADY Devouring Its Own — Or: LEFTIST PRIVILEGE
To elaborate just a bit: If the Left were unable to use insults, name-calling or mind-reading, they’d have nothing to say… and they’d lose every debate in which they have to participate honestly. I’d add: if the Left were also unable to filibuster, talk over, interrupt their debate opponents, they’d cease to exist as anything but a fringe current of thought.
