    Since when is being less bad than the Klan a major moral accomplishment?

    The Alt-Right Is Bad — And So Is ‘Antifa’ Fighting Nazis is a good thing, but fighting Nazis doesn’t necessarily make you or your cause good. By my lights this is simply an obvious fact. The greatest Nazi-killer of the 20th century was Josef Stalin. He also killed millions of his own people...

    Yes, antifa is the moral equivalent of neo-Nazis

    Last weekend in Berkeley, Calif., a group of neo-communist antifa — “anti-fascist” — thugs attacked peaceful protesters at a “No to Marxism in America” rally, wielding sticks and pepper spray, and beating people with homemade shields that read (I kid you not) “No Hate.” The Post reports how...

    Vice President Joe Biden: ‘Moral’ Sanders Supporters ‘Can’t Vote for Trump’

    Vice President Biden has a very good point there! Some of Sanders' supporters are not thinking clearly at this time and it takes tough words like Biden's to get them to start thinking more clearly about what this election truly means to them and to their family. A Republican win may very well...

    Has morality been replaced with moral superiority?

    Has loving thy neighbor been replaced with loving your neighbor only 'when' or 'if'! Has charitable giving been bastardized into 'political giving' only giving to those in need if they meet certain conditions? Has feeding the hungry become another conditions met deal? These are just some? What...
