Liberty and Racial Discrimination: Responding to David Duke

However, Mr. Duke, you are right in claiming that your views are far more closely aligned with those of the founding fathers than mine. Some, like Benjamin Franklin, were even more hardcore than you, with his opposition to permitting “ruddy-complexioned” Germans from immigrating to the U.S. This is not to their or your credit. Where the principles of the Declaration of Independence were betrayed, the motivation was generally a racist one. In past generations, white Americans were quite willing to betray or give up the freedoms hard-won by their ancestors rather than extend them to black people, Chinese people, Mexicans or Filipinos.

Ron Paul and the Nazis: My Take

Lately there has been a great deal of brouhaha about Ron Paul’s support amongst white-supremacists and the, er, “racially aware” types that frequent Stormfront. Make no mistake, the support is real. Now, these guys support Ron Paul because they like his policies. The white supremacists are actually making a serious mistake in supporting Ron Paul; [...]

Saw this one coming

So, for the last few years, supporters of gay marriage have pretty much given up on the legislative route; and have been depending on judges to try and impose their agenda on the states. While I have no problem with the concept of gay marriage (the state should not be involved in religious marriage; and [...]

Penn & Teller Give al Qaeda the Finger

There has been much debate over what should be done with ground zero since the towers fell six years ago. Unfortunately, politics and political correctness has caused the WTC site to remain a giant hole in the ground. So what should be done with this hallowed ground? Build the “Freedom Tower,” turn it over to [...]

One Man’s Freedom of Expression is Another Man’s Hate Crime

We seem to have strayed a long way from our valuing of free speech, perhaps best stated by Voltaire “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” In this age of political correctness, both the Right and the Left has bastardized the idea of free [...]

Point-Counterpoint

No, not the soon-to-be regular feature of this site, where one of us debates another one; this one is in response to some of the responses to yesterdays events. Yesterday, a horrendous attack was carried out by a lone, crazed individual at Virgina Tech. 33 people (including the mass murderer) are dead, with dozens more [...]

We Should Make English The National Language

As any regular reader knows, I’m for nearly-unlimited immigration. Basically as long as you can certify that you’re not a felon in your home country, or have ties to terrorist organizations, I welcome you to come on over and work. But in one area, I go the exact opposite direction of most pro-immigration advocates. I [...]

It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial. And, its not just 20th Century history that is getting ignored [...]

Somebody’s Gotta Say It (Book Review)

(Cross posted here at Fearless Philosophy for Free Minds) As a regular listener of The Neal Boortz Show, I find this book every bit as hard-hitting, insensitive, informative, and entertaining as his show. The High Priest of the Painful Truth pulls no punches in his assault on ignorance whether from the Right, the Left, or [...]

Christian Pharmacists And Muslim Cashiers

Just a question. Is there any moral difference between these two? Muslim cashiers won’t ring up pork products So Dsouza was taken aback when the cashier – who had on the traditional headscarf worn by many Muslim women – refused to swipe the bacon through the checkout scanner. “She made me scan the bacon. Then [...]
