From the Writings of David Horowitz: April 7, 2010


In the Vietnam War the United States had undertaken to support a dictatorship in South Vietnam on the grounds that the dictatorship was also anti-Communist, and therefore a lesser evil than a unified Communist Vietnam. Some on the left supported the Communist totalitarians. But many “New Leftists” were self-declared “anti-totalitarians” who believed that Communism was [...]

Is Porn Destroying Marriages? Should Government Intervene?


Larry Flynt: Wrecker of Marriages? Try again…
The answers are “No” and “Absolutely not.”
Dr. Helen has a great column at Pajamas Media today effectively making those points in response to “Anonymous” over at National Review.
Dr. Helen says:
Perhaps when Anonymous was writing this article, she should have taken a look at both sides of the porn [...]

From the Writings of David Horowitz: March 4, 2010


Conservatives are generally so oblivious to (or complacent in the face of) the actual threat posed by the political Left in this country that they are willing to cede to Leftists the term “liberal.” This greatly confuses the political discussion, including the one we are about to have. So-called liberals, now include everyone who calls [...]

And now you know… the rest of the story


As I told you here last month, Obama Organizing for America has been building an army of talk radio “seminar callers” — that is, activists tasked with calling conservative talk radio programs, then dutifully repeating DNC talking points until the program director hangs up on them.
Yesterday, they unveiled their website: Radio.BarackObama.com.
If you thought leftists were [...]

Radical Son Reflections, Part IV: Leftists Are Intoxicated With Their Own Virtue


When I was trying to determine what excerpt I’d use for the fourth installment of this series on Radical Son: A Generational Oddyssey, I realized that I had not covered the Left’s view on morality yet. This even though it’s an integral part of the Left’s world view. It influences everything they do, from the policies [...]

Joseph Stack: Disillusioned Leftist, Not “Racist Right-wing Teabagger”


Despite the leftist ideology revealed in Joseph Stack’s manifesto, shortly after he crashed his plane into the IRS building in Austin, TX, progressive media lept to align him with the Tea Party movement, describing him as right-wing, racist, anti-tax, patriot, or militia. Sensing the danger the average American citizen in the Tea Party movement represents to Democrats in 2010 and 2012, they [...]

A New Threat to Free Speech on Campus

Campus lefists and administrators discover the academic equivalent of the poll tax.

Andrew C. McCarthy: Kill or Capture? – National Review Online


A few years ago, I got into an argument with an expert on military operations. I had written a white paper proposing the creation of a national-security court for terrorism cases. In the paper I criticized the trend to “judicialize” warfare, arguing that, in our system, judgments about the detention and treatment of alien enemy […]

Stumbling Down the Slippery Slope: First Legalized Weed Then Prescription Smack?


In December I had a great discussion with my friend Mary Grabar about marijuana legalization, the role of government, and the counterculture. The debate, collected and republished at FrontPage, can be read here and here.
One of NRB’s friends, Donald Douglas who blogs at American Power, took note of the debate at the time and cautiously [...]

Alabama shooter a crazed, right wing extremist… oh, wait


(credit: Oleg Volk)
The George Soros Steno Pool, a.k.a. Media Matters, had lots to say about the 2009 murder at the Washington, D.C. Holocaust Museum — until the shooter turned out to be a 9/11 truther who hated “neo-cons.”
Media Matters is now observing radio silence regarding the recent mass murder at an Alabama college.
Usually, leftists shamelessly [...]
