Campus 'snowflakes' are piling up in the workplace

Editors, Washington Examiner

Confronted with reports of safe spaces and disinvitations, many an exasperated parent has wondered, “What’s going to happen to these kids when they have to work in the real world?” Increasingly, it seems as though the real world is conforming to the standards of the campus. If MTV were to brand the drama poised to grip American workplaces with a familiar tagline, it may sound something like, “Find out what happens when people stop being respectful and start getting woke.”

The New Last Refuge of Scoundrels

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Harvey Weinstein assumed that fighting the NRA and Trump would compensate for assaulting and harassing women. Steven Colbert thought that he could use gross homophobic slurs and avoid criticism because he was doing so to attack a despised Trump who holds the nation’s nuclear codes. Christina Garcia believes that as a Latina representative of her “community,” she is exempt from the very charges she often levels against others, and she assumes that using profanity, drinking in her office, and slurring gays are the exemptions given to one who is an “advocate.” Political correctness is now the new last refuge of a scoundrel.

President Trump Signs New Transgender Military Ban

President Trump has signed a new memorandum that bans most individuals suffering from gender dysphoria from US military service. The new directive adopts recommendations from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that "transgender persons who require or have undergone gender transition" cannot serve.

Digital Tyrants Enable Political Tyrants

The internet was once hailed as the ultimate channel for free expression and democratizing the world, but the worldwide web’s promise of unlimited free expression is being quickly eroded by the alliance between political tyrants anxious to retain their power and digital tyrants anxious to retain their power – and make money.

The Greatest Constitutional Crisis Of Trump's Presidency

The greatest constitutional crisis of Trump's presidency is the overreach of the federal judiciary, manifested first in the various lower court orders attempting to stymie the President's orders on immigration, and now, most seriously, by judges attempting to bypass the President to run the military and the Department of Defense from the federal bench.

CMR: Judges Should Not Run Our Military

Federal judges do not have the power to run the military, but they will continue to do so unless the Executive Branch vigorously takes up the fight. Unfortunately, LGBT activists and Obama holdovers at Defense and Justice are about to give away core constitutional powers of the Presidency to the judiciary.

Undermining America

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

If the leftists can convince the nation that men such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were good-for-nothing slave-owning racists, then their ideas can be more easily trashed. We find the greatest assaults on our founding documents on the nation's college campuses. The American people need to stop being sheeple and put a halt to the undermining of our nation taking place in our institutions of higher learning.

When colleges became echo chambers of the politically correct

Jeff Sessions, Washington Times

A national recommitment to free speech on campus is long overdue. And action to ensure First Amendment rights is overdue. We have staked a country on the principle that robust and even contentious debate is how we discover truth and resolve the most intractable problems before us. This is the heritage that we have been given and which we must protect.

Virtual Virtue

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

The more prominent persons voice virtual virtue at no cost, the quieter ones know better and make the necessary adjustments that fit what they see and hear and conclude. The result of our two worlds is that the virtual virtue signalers grow ever louder only to reach deaf ears; while the quieter become even more cynical and detached in having to live what increasingly seems a charade.

Linguistic McCarthyism

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Words, as the historian Thucydides warned 2,400 years ago, habitually change their meanings to reflect passing political orthodoxy — and thugs, commissars, and brownshirts oversee the charade. For an antidote to these statue-smashers and name-changers, Americans seek just one honest public official who dares to say “no more” — and arrests rather than appeases those who destroy public property, or shames those who ruin people through guilt by association.

At the Orgy of Self-Righteousness

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The press had grown accustomed to Republican presidents who suffered under what might be called a conservative inferiority complex. Trump, fortunately, isn’t touched by it and is willing to call the self-appointed ruling class on its propaganda and lies. As phony Republicans and conservatives chase after the mob headed for Lee’s statue, there stands Trump like a stonewall.

Movie Review: Dunkirk

Dunkirk is not so much a war movie, as say The Longest Day, Band of Brothers or Saving Private Ryan is a war movie; it is a character study of the British people at a pivotal moment in world history and how British values and character overcame the Nazi juggernaut.

The AP Stylebook Is Getting Crazy

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

For decades now, AP has tacked hard to port along with the rest of the media establishment. They'll deny it, of course, because that's what they do. But the evidence is there, emblazoned in the AP Stylebook, which sets the rules for the language of news reporting. It also sets the tone of the media elite's daily composition in every format — print, online or broadcast.

Is The Pentagon Finally Listening To Conservatives On LGBT Issues?

Secretary James Mattis has quietly squelched (at least temporarily) the Obama plan to enlist transgender recruits into the United States military services. However, the question remains whether Mattis plans to kill Obama’s plan or to eventually let it become Pentagon policy.

Is a Populist Christian Movement Needed to Renew the Faith?

Just as millions of American voters picked up copies of the Constitution and began to ask out of touch elite politicians “where does it say you can do that,” we Christians should pick up our Bibles and ask out of touch elite church leaders, “where does it say same-sex marriage and transgenderism are OK”, and “where does the Bible endorse the heresy that claims God and Allah are the same”?

Blizzard of ‘Snowflakes’ Prove Political Correctness Is Killing Colleges

Paul Metaxas, CNS News

The idea that learning should never offend us, or that college should be a “safe space” free of uncomfortable ideas is destroying modern education. And the institutions and governments that cave to these demands are just as guilty as the students making them. As Christians, we can lead the way by being the first to engage opposing ideas, rather than silencing them.

By Any Means Necessary

The Inauguration Day demonstrations can serve as an object lesson for many Americans. First, they will give us a good picture of the bullet we dodged, the type of PC-induced intolerance that would have been more broadly infused into America had Hillary Clinton won the presidency. Second, we’ll get a really good inspection of what political correctness looks like in its more advanced stage—after it’s morphed literally into mob behavior.

Trump vs the Cult of Political Correctness

When we look at this week’s protests during the Trump -- Pence inauguration and their potential for violence we need to see most protesters for what they are; victims of Far-Left propaganda and the cult of political correctness.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch And The Suicidal Demand For “Tolerance” Of Islam

Attorney General Loretta Lynch chose a very bizarre place to deliver the message of “tolerance” for Islam, the anti-constitutional movement for world domination that masquerades as a religion, because the All Dulles Area Muslim Society is one of the epicenters of Islam’s attack on America.
