8 Things I Wish I’d Known (or Remembered) When I Was a Leftist


Editor’s Note: Kathy Shaidle has been taking a short hiatus from NewsReal Blog to focus on some other writing projects. She’ll be back soon but in the mean time we’re reprinting one of her biggest hits, originally published October 17 here. In my own defense: a) I was drunk the whole time, and b) I [...]

‘Anti-Racism’ is the New Fascism — and the Old Radicalism


I define “social justice” as “the stubborn application of unworkable solutions to imaginary problems.” This week up here in Canada, we learned about a new taxpayer sponsored project that fits that definition perfectly. Having made themselves into international laughingstocks by prosecuting Ezra Levant for reprinting the “Mohammed cartoons“, the Albert Human Rights Commission (AHRC) evidently [...]

Tin Foil Turbans: The 6 Stupidest Conspiracy Theories that Millions of Muslims Believe


“But the biggest problem with conspiracy theories is that they keep us not only from the truth but also from confronting our faults and problems. …This way of thinking relates any given problem to external elements, and thus does not [lead] to a rational policy to confront the problem. He who speaks of ghosts [as [...]

Hot Post: “Despite All Our Help, Muslims Still Hate Us.” Here’s Why.


This was the most popular featured post of last week and was originally published here on November 3. I’m not sure how I got along before I discovered Investor’s Business Daily. All I know is, sometime after 9/11, I started reading IBD and encountered, in their op-ed pages,  a robust, refreshing alternative to the wimpy [...]

Blogger Lee Papa: Dems could win election ‘if black people decide that rain won’t hurt them’


“Liberal Racism” has a category of its very own at Discover The Networks, and for good reason. I bet we all have our war stories about the insensitive, appalling and just plain jaw-dropping stuff we’ve heard come out of the mouths of “sensitive, enlightened” leftists (even though, according to them, we’re the “racist” ones.) For [...]

The Top 7 Horror Movies for Conservatives


A lot of “conservative movie” lists really push the meaning of “conservative” beyond its strict dictionary limits, veering into the realms of libertarianism, Objectivism and anarchy. (Starship Troopers [1997]?! Not sure what Burke or Kirk would think of those co-ed showers…) Frankly, the following list is no exception. I don’t mean to suggest by using [...]

“Despite all our help, Muslims still hate us.” Here’s why.


I’m not sure how I got along before I discovered Investor’s Business Daily. All I know is, sometime after 9/11, I started reading IBD and encountered, in their op-ed pages,  a robust, refreshing alternative to the wimpy “on the one hand, on the other hand” drivel that passes for editorial comment in most legacy newspapers.

Hot Post: Newsflash: Journalists Who Don’t Take Themselves Seriously Captured on Film


Editor’s Note: This popular post was first published on October 27 here. We bash the MSM a lot here at NewsReal, and for good reason. The legacy media clings to many now-debunked myths of their own importance. The average person still thinks All the President’s Men is a documentary, that Walter Cronkite convinced LBJ that [...]
