In one of its rare adventures into the no man's land beyond the Beltway, the Washington Post last week served up a series on What America Is Really Like, concluding with an extended scrutiny of what is now called "Blue America" (actually, red or pink America), namely, that part of the country that voted for...

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a self-appointed"watchdog" organization in Montgomery, Alabama that purports to keep a sharp eye out for "racism" and "hate." Despite its name, it doesn't seem to have much to do with either the South or the law, let alone poverty, other than avoiding the latter for its own officers,... Read More
Science marches on, and some of it marches right into a happy country that unites Alice's Wonderland to Orwell's 1984. The latest scientific finding from Dartmouth discloses a test that claims to be able to detect hidden "racism." The test's uses are obvious enough, and one has already been proposed—to screen police recruits to see... Read More
"I do not like the Confederate flag," black pundit Shelby Steeleinformed the readers of the Wall Street Journal last week in a long commentary on Vermont ex-governor Howard Dean's recent remarkthat he wanted to be "the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks." "It excludes me, profoundly," Mr. Steele asserts. [Yo, Howard!... Read More

Well, if the good people of California can't have an election, at least they can have freedom of association. Well, then again, perhaps they can't. At a place rather ironically calledFreedom High School in Contra Costa a 15-year-old girl wants to start a student group called the Caucasian Club. That was enough to make national... Read More
If you'd like a glimpse of the future of the Western world—not just Europe but the United States and most other currently white majoritycountries—forget the happy chatter about the great Republican victorylast week and take a look at Theodore Dalrymple's account in the Autumn issue of the Manhattan Institute's City Journal of what's happening in...

The state of Idaho seems an unlikely place for totalitarian government to pop up, but in recent months that's exactly what has begun to emerge there. Under the state's "hate crime" statute, a perfectly law-abiding citizen is being prosecuted for using a racial slur—and faces a ruinous five-year term in the state prison. "Hate crimes"... Read More
The big news at Ford Motor Company these days is not so much those tires they're going to put on their cars and trucks but rather which colors will make the decision. Last summer, Ford was named the 30th "best company for minorities" in the country by Fortunemagazine, and if the class action lawsuit filed... Read More
The debate over immigration may have smothered in its cradle in Washington and national politics, but in more real places it's still alive and kicking. One such place is Iowa, which for the last nine months has been pregnant with controversy over the issue. Last September, the state's Democratic governor, Tom Vilsack, was infected with... Read More
It is no longer news that statues of real, white American heroes are being removed from public places and images of fake, non-white non-heroes being erected. The totalitarian reconstruction of culture, including the historical past, has now become commonplace. Nevertheless, the reasons offered by those waging the cultural and racial warfare remain interesting, if only... Read More
