GOP Nice Guys Will Finish Last In 2018

Republicans running in 2018 should expect the same kind of anti-Trump ads and attacks from Democrat-affiliated race-baiters that Ed Gillespie was subjected to, so the time to start thinking about how to get ahead of them is now.

What Truly Imperils A Free Society?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The Justice Department should report on hate crimes by white racists. But from the stats, anti-white racism is far more common and far more manifest in crimes of violence. Who reports that truth? The left has been marinated in an ideology where the enemy is always to the right. People blinded by ideology, unable to see the true enemies of their civilization, end up losing it, and their lives as well.

The Knock-Down, Drag-Out Society

William Murchison, The American Spectator

The age — our age — the age of the instant accusation, the flat, declarative dismissal of the other side’s case for anything — has a style that works fine for winning elections. And pulling down other people’s memorials. For uniting, moving to a better place, fixing things, affirming life at other than the knock-down, drag-out level — well, that’s another matter. Obviously.

The startling reality facing America in wake of Virginia white power rally

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The coercive demand for purity, enforced by violence, often feels staged for political effect aimed at Trump. The surge of sensitivity seems especially odd given that the issue was not as prominent during the tenure of Barack Obama, America’s only black president.

If We Erase Our History, Who Are We?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Our new America is to be a land where all races, tribes, creeds and cultures congregate, all are treated equally, and all move ever closer to an equality of results through the regular redistribution of opportunity, wealth and power. We are going to become “the first universal nation.” “All men are created equal” is an ideological statement. Where is the scientific or historic proof for it? Are we building our utopia on a sandpile of ideology and hope?

Is Charlottesville What's Really Going On in the USA?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What happened in Charlottesville isn't us. It's just a small group of real bad people. Indict them, convict them, and lock them up for a long as possible. The rest of us should move on. We have a lot better things to do.

The Most Asinine Claim About the AHCA

David Catron, The American Spectator

We have a consensus: Partisan academics, biased journalists, unemployed Obama administration hacks, and clueless comediennes agree that there can be but one reason to repeal Obamacare — and it has nothing to do with the failure of the “reform” law to accomplish any of its ostensible goals. It’s all about racism. This is certainly not the only spurious pretext concocted by the left to denounce AHCA, but it is easily the most asinine.

Today’s Blood Libel: A Democrat Specialty

Ross Kaminsky, The American Spectator

If Barack Obama or John Lewis or Cory Booker or Hillary “Who?” Clinton are going to imply that any of those people, or any other Republicans, or you, or I are racists — the only card they have left to play in a country that has witnessed so many years of the failure of “progressive” policies — we, and especially you Republicans, must push back.

At Sessions’ hearing, Dems live up to the party’s tradition of racism

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Every single Democrat on the committee, in some way or another, attacked Mr. Sessions from the standpoint of race or religion or sex, accusing him of not embracing physical diversity as lustily as they would like. Which is pretty amazing considering the Senate Judiciary Committee is 90 percent white, more than 90 percent male and 100 percent ancient. We should start a campaign demanding that some of these guys voluntarily give up their seat on the committee to a minority. According to some of their own definitions, they must be racist!

Democrats honed the dog whistle of racism on Sessions

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Now, Mr. Sessions will once again face the United States Senate to be President Donald Trump’s attorney general. The same liberal special interest groups in Washington who thwarted him 30 years ago have declared that they aim to do the same to him this time.

The Exhausted Epithets of the Left

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The Left’s trivialization of the charge of racism only made it easier for Trump to win. Previous GOP candidates lived in dread fear of the media’s PC mau-mauing. Trump didn’t and ended up getting a higher percentage of the Black and Hispanic vote than Romney.

The Media is Showing Peak Trump Hatred

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

Conservatives often note that when everything is “racist” according to the left, it becomes really hard to identify when something actually is really racist. The message gets diluted. In the same way, the over the top, overwrought coverage of Donald Trump is starting to become white noise and the really absurd and also the not too shabby aspects of Team Trump are fading into the white noise.

Hillary Clinton and Establishment GOP Join Forces Against the Alt-Right

The reason why Brexit resonated and Trump resonated isn’t that people are racists or too stupid to understand the arguments. The reason they resonated is that people have been so screwed by the prevailing order in such deep and fundamental and enduring ways that they can't imagine that anything is worse than preservation of the status quo.

Steve Scalise Must Go As House Republican Whip

Steve Scalise is either too dumb to be Republican Whip, or just plain lying about his association with David Duke's despicable racist organization, because none of what he has said about his association with Kenneth Knight, a leader of Duke's racist group has made the least bit of sense to anyone with even a low voltage BS detector.

Rangel: I Called TEAParty ‘White Crackers’ As ‘Term Of Endearment'

Alex Griswold, Daily Caller

NY Dem. Congressman Charlie Rangel sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Huffington Post Live, during which he defended his earlier use of the term ‘white crackers’ as a “term of endearment.”

Solicitor Gen.: Israel Has No Claim to Jerusalem

Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon

Lawyers for the Obama admin. compared Israel’s control of Jerusalem to Russian claims over the Ukrainian territory of Crimea during oral arguments this week before the SCOTUS in a case concerning the rights of US citizens to list Jerusalem as part of Israel on their passports.

Dem. Race-Baiting Is the Ugly Face of Political Desperation

Repair Man Jack, Red State

America will know a far greater peace and prosperity when tactics like those employed by Charlie Rangel are shown to completely and utterly backfire. Vote against racism by voting against every single Democrat on the ballot as a matter of principle.

Landrieu: My State's Kinda Racist & Sexist

Ed Morrissey, Hot Air

Sen. Mary Landrieu said, “The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for [Obama] to present himself in a positive light as a leader.” She added that women have faced challenges also.

Chuck Todd Plays Race Card on Repub. Voters

Richard Baehr, American Thinker

Democrat in the south face defeat because, according to the former Dem-staffer-turned-bias-media, they're linked to a black president. So it is not that they are linked to an incompetent president whose national approval score is barely 40% that is the problem.

James Woods Challenges Eric Holder: Prove You're Not a Real Racial Coward

Matthew Burke, Tea Party News Network

AG Eric Holder said in '09 that ‘when it comes to racism, America is a nation of cowards.’ Conservative actor James Woods tweeted: "This is a direct challenge to Eric Holder: Are you, Sir, going to Memphis, TN to address the Kroger racial hate crime?
