Georgetown U. Explicitly Defends Slavery, Rape

Georgetown had changed the names of Mulledy Hall and McSherry Hall because Mulledy and McSherry had once been involved in selling some slaves back in the early 19th century. When Christina Hoff Sommers spoke at Georgetown, feminists demanded trigger warnings and a university official threatened College Republicans. But defending actual slavery and rape is still okay at Georgetown. So long as it’s committed by Muslims under the license of the Koran.

The Left’s Shameful Hypocrisy on Refugees

The President of the United States announced that refugees fleeing persecution by a totalitarian regime would be deported. It did not matter that they had risked their lives to come here. They would be sent back. No leftist lawyers crammed airports. No protesters chanted at terminals. No celebrities offered sanctimonious lectures about “who we are”. No one dared to call the lying thug behind it un-American.

Castro’s Death Was a Chance for the Media and Politicians to Speak Out Against Tyranny

The death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, who murdered his people and turned Cuba into an isolated island with a sub-Haiti standard of living, was remarked upon in the strangest way by many of our leading media and political leaders. Among progressives and leftists there was sadness and even some eulogies to the great things Castro supposedly accomplished. Others, such as President Obama, made obscure statements devoid of moral clarity about what kind of leader Castro actually was.
