Liberal Fascism

Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning (New York: Doubleday, 2009)

The word “fascist,” much like “racist,” has long been a favorite insult of the Left to silence their opposition. Unfortunately, fascist is so widely thrown about these days that it trivializes the evils of real fascism. As a result, this perpetuates a perverted understanding of the word fascist as “everyone I don’t like.”

But here’s the irony. Jonah Goldberg, in his book Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning, “reminds us that the original fascists were really on the left, and that liberals from Woodrow Wilson to FDR to Hillary Clinton have advocated policies and principles remarkably similar to those of Hitler’s National Socialism and Mussolini’s Fascism.” For example, the Nazis “believed in free health care and guaranteed jobs. They confiscated inherited wealth and spent vast sums on public education. They purged the church from public policy, promoted a new form of pagan spirituality, and inserted the authority of the state into every nook and cranny of daily life. The Nazis declared war on smoking, supported abortion, euthanasia, and gun control. They loathed the free market, provided generous pensions for the elderly, and maintained a strict racial quota system in their universities—where campus speech codes were all the rage.”

Goldberg’s book is a gem and a must read!

Seeds of Evil: College Students Embrace Killing Jews

By Kimberly Bloom Jackson

Just when we thought college students couldn’t sink any lower into the depths of mindless Marxian goo, this shocking video pops up. It reveals one of the most unthinkable acts known to humankind, which is why it’s so hard to image how these sensitive “safe spacers” could financially support such a thing.

What is it? Students of Portland State University shown are willingly donating money to “American Friends for Hamas” whose mission is to help fund terrorists and “wipe Israel off the map”—or so they think. That’s because filmmaker Ami Horowitz fabricated the whole set up just to see if students would really give money after being explicitly told it would go to helping kill Jews. And they did! As one student put it, “I’ve been learning about this in school and I’m happy to help you.”

This sounds like something straight out of Hitler’s Germany. Why haven’t these students been arrested? (more…)

April is Whiteness History Month?

By Kimberly Bloom Jackson

Portland Community College “values diversity,” says Dean of Student Instruction Craig Kolins. That’s why the college has dedicated the entire month of April to whiteness, complete with over 100 scheduled events.

Unfortunately, Mr. Kolins isn’t a very good PR person, as he had some serious difficulty defining whiteness when interviewed by a reporter. After first suggesting it was “not based on race; it’s a social-organizational construct,” he eventually resorted to the usual PC approach of self-loathing:

“I think that as a person with privilege, as a white male, I experience the world very differently than people of color, and so it’s my awareness of that, how I interact with the world, how people interact with me, so I guess that’s an example of how whiteness affects everyone.” (more…)

How do college students define the American dream? Brace yourself.

QUESTION: What ever happened to the days when people had dignity, a strong work ethic, and an appetite for achieving the American dream? 

A must see video from Prager University:

“Is America racist? Is it—as President Barack Obama said—”part of our DNA”? Author and talk-show host Larry Elder examines America’s legacy of racism, whether it’s one we can ever escape, and in the process offers a different way of looking at things like Ferguson, crime, police and racial profiling.”

Rob Pincus' Combat Focus Shooting Class

I finally took Rob Pincus’ Combat Focus Shooting class last summer. To be honest, I was a little nervous at first. That’s because Combat Focus Shooting goes beyond just shooting at a stationary paper target, where people stand and take their sweet time shooting at the bullseyes. If only the bad guys who seek to lethally harm us would be as still as the typical paper target.

Luckily, Pincus’ intuitive shooting class can better prepare us for a dynamic critical incident in the real world. His classes are very “hands-on” and “minds-on,” complete with shooting (with and without sights), holstering/re-holstering, loading/reloading, and lots of lateral movement, all while under the influence of multiple stimuli. In other words, it wasn’t comfy like a standard shooting range. This is precisely how my skills were taken to the next level. In fact, the class was so good, I plan to take it again in the future.

To experience this potentially life-saving training for yourself, contact Combat Focus Shooting for more information.

More Guns, Less Crime

More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2010)

From Back Cover:

On its initial publication in 1998, John R. Lott’s More Guns, Less Crime drew both lavish praise and heated criticism. More than a decade later, it continues to play a key role in ongoing arguments over gun-control: despite all the attacks by gun-control advocates, no one has ever been able to refute Lott’s simple, startling conclusion that more guns mean less crime. Relying on the most rigorously comprehensive data analysis ever conducted on crime statistics and right-to-carry laws, the book directly challenges common perceptions about the relationship of guns, crime, and violence. For this third edition, Lott draws on an additional ten years of data—including provocative analysis of the effects of gun bans in Chicago and Washington, DC—that brings the book fully up to date and further bolsters its central contention.
