The Left’s selective use of history for political purposes

Dare to even possess a book that treats Robert E. Lee or Jefferson Davis fairly, and you will be pounded into smithereens  by the Bernie Sanders Fan Club and their comrades in the driveby media. Republican legislators Mitch Setzer and Larry Pittman had the nerve…

Vandal blocked from speaking at Asheville school. (Bert & Ernie are pissed.)

When I was in school, we often heard from speakers who were pillars of the community — who did constructive things that benefited the community or society as a whole.  People you could look up to and admire. Here’s one of Bert and Ernie’s goons…

Drivebys do Left’s dirty work: tie Confederate flag, Nazi flag together

We know it’s a major component of the left’s campaign strategy for 2016:  demagogue the Confederate flag and make Southern Republicans PROVE they are not racists.  It’s a move that would make Big Barry and Saul Alinsky’s rotting corpse proud. Now, along comes McClatchy —…

#ncga: It’s Monday. What are we hollerin’ about today?

A throng of The Round Rev’s filthy and / or addled followers formed a “half-circle” in Raleigh yesterday. (They apparently didn’t have enough for a FULL circle.)   It was time for the protest of the week.™ : Demonstrators gathered on the state Capitol grounds to express…

Get Ready. Here it comes.

The Left has had a field day blaming a whole lot of terrible things on the fact that Confederate flag imagery even exists.  They and their drive-by media allies browbeat South Carolina’s government into taking the flag off the statehouse grounds. All kinds of calls…

A triumph of symbolism over substance

We’ve got rampant unemployment.  We are accumulating debt faster than our economy can produce value.  Our borders are being overrun by illegal immigrants.  ObamaCare is crippling the economy and killing what has been the greatest health care system in the world. And the drivebys and…

#ncga: House Dems loaded for bear against a, um, license plate

The moles are reporting in about the appearance of something in Jones Street’s lower chamber called the “License Plate Subcommittee.”  From what I hear, this new entity will be spearheaded by Reps. Marvin Lucas (D-Cumberland) and Becky Carney (D-Mecklenburg) — a really old white lady…

Pedicures: For when you just can’t keep your foot out of your mouth

Pat McCrory never ceases to amaze me.  I have never seen anyone in elected office work so hard to tick off each and every possible segment of his or her base.  Let’s run through the checklist:  the religious right,  Charlotte-area commuters,  fiscal conservatives,  gun owners,…

SC 2016: Again, with THIS ????

Well, the run-up to South Carolina’s presidential primary is already underway.  It’s an every-four-years ritual.  And with that ritual comes another ritual — moaning and hand-wringing about the Confederate flag on the grounds of the state Capitol in Columbia. *Speaking as a native-born Southerner, I…
