The Covington Rorschach test: What do YOU see? by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2019 Sometimes, a three-point celebration is just a three-point celebration. Sometimes, a pep rally is just a pep rally. Sometimes, a smile is just a smile. And sometimes, a hat is just a hat. Only among the most deranged partisans could... Read More
Procter & Gamble's toxic sanctimony by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2019 One of the world's most successful brands committed ideological hara-kiri this week. Recognized around the world as a symbol of manly civility for more than a century, Gillette will now be remembered as the company that did itself in by sacrificing a massive... Read More
Sombreros, qipaos, and Catholic cosplay, oh my! by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 The impossibly fickle, selective and whimsical rules of cultural appropriation are hard to keep straight. (Oops! I said "straight." Apologies to whomever. Oops, can I say "whomever?" Zimever? Verselves? Gah.) According to the white people who run the left-wing Southern Poverty... Read More
The "Uncle Tom" card is dead by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Here is a short list of prominent conservatives and independent thinkers who've been accused by their critics of being an "Uncle Tom" or some other vitriolic variation on the overplayed left-wing theme of being a traitor to their race or gender ("Aunt...

Going bananas: A case study in media-manufactured racism by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 Political correctness is a pathological disorder. You can’t say “niggardly” or “black holes” or “chink in the armor” without provoking protests or risking your job. You can’t invoke the Constitution or call illegal behavior “illegal” without being accused of hatred.... Read More
Dear Mr. Colbert: Me so stupid. You so funny! by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Question: Who are the most prominent, public purveyors of Asian stereotypes and ethnic language-mocking in America? The right answer is liberal Hollywood and Democrats. The wrong and slanderous answer is conservatives, which is what liberal performance artist/illegal alien amnesty... Read More
Cruciphobia at Mt. Soledad: The Cross the Left Can't Bear by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 Consider this: Taylor Swift wasn't even born yet when the fight over the Mount Soledad cross began. How much longer will it drag on? Disgruntled atheists first filed suit over the memorial at a veterans park in San... Read More
GLAAD: Lethal Enforcers of the Left's Tolerance Mob by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson is not alone. He's the latest in a long, long lineup of politically incorrect targets of the left's sensitivity mob. Founded in 1985, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) gangstas won't stop until both... Read More
How Oberlin Manufactured the Hate-Crime Hoax of the Year by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 Busted. Stone-cold busted. Just as I suspected, "progressive" pranksters at Oberlin College have been definitively unmasked as the perpetrators of phony campus "hate crimes" that scored international headlines in March. The blabbermouth academic administrators who helped fuel the hysteria... Read More
America's Empty Slogan: "See Something, Say Something" by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 In brief remarks to the nation yesterday on the Boston Marathon bombings, President Obama said that "we all have a part to play in alerting authorities. If you see something suspicious, speak up." In Washington, D.C., electronic signs urged commuters to... Read More
Thirteen men and women, plus the unborn child of Pvt. Francheska Velez, died in the bloody terrorist rampage at Fort Hood three years ago today. Never forget. 1. Lt. Col. Juanita Warman, 55, Havre de Grace, Md. 2. Maj. Libardo Caraveo, 52, Woodbridge, Va. 3. Cpt. John P. Gaffaney, 54, San Diego, Calif. 4. Cpt.... Read More
When I first saw reports on Twitter that Chick-fil-A had caved to the tolerance mob, I despaired. Corporation after corporation has given in to the free speech-squelching agitators on the Left who demand political conformity. Turns out the information was coming from progressive activists trying to shape a false narrative. Chick-fil-A responds via CitizenLink: n... Read More
The Condensed Liberal Handbook of Racial Code Words by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Thumper the Rabbit's parents always taught him, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all." If the left's self-appointed Omniscient Diviners of True Meaning have their way, conservatives in the public square won't be left with anything... Read More
SQUIRREL!!!!!!!!!!
Remember when all the journalists laughed and laughed at President Obama's birth certificate jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner? Well, it's not funny, anymore...now that GOP presidential rival Mitt Romney has made a light-hearted birth certificate joke of his own. It's full freak-out time for the Left and the Left Media. Water-carrying business as... Read More
Check out Twitchy's amazing social media photo album of today's Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. In cities across the country, thousands of happy and peaceful customers turned out to show their support of the First Amendment and free enterprise. Here's a nice video montage: Readers send more reports and pics: Reader Rick: "I just wanted to let... Read More
Today is National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, but judging from the nationwide social media reports last week, customers didn't wait for the official day to start showing their support. The fast-food chicken restaurant has seen standing-room-only dining areas and clogged drive-through lines all week since the mayors of Boston and Chicago openly declared their desire to... Read More
The tolerance police are out of control. It may be summer time, but some college campuses never take a break from P.C. indoctrination. Take Georgetown University, where a minority student has reportedly been kicked out of a summer scholars program for refusing to participate in an LGBT sensitivity training workshop. Kira Davis has the scoop... Read More
In defense of Brad Pitt's mom by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Hollywood and the American left love diversity, except when it offends their "progressive" value system. Witness the reaction to actor Brad Pitt's mother, Jane, who publicly opposed President Obama's re-election. Mrs. Pitt's pro-life, anti-gay marriage statement to her local paper last week... Read More
How the Gay-Marriage Mob Slimed Manny Pacquiao by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao is guilty -- of being true to his Catholic faith. The gay-marriage mob is guilty -- of the very ugly bigotry it claims to abhor. And left-wing media outlets are guilty -- of stoking false narratives that... Read More
This fringe chump is wielding a disturbing amount of political power to silence free-market, limited government voices. What are you doing about it? My column this week is a follow-up to last week's piece on ALEC vs. the progressive mob/corporate appeasers. Be sure to read the entire column (plus my e-mail exchanges with several cowardly...

I'll get to the ridiculous AAJA "media coverage guidelines" on basketball star Jeremy Lin in a moment. First, some background. I've been poking fun of the "Asian American Journalists Association" for more than a decade. The idea of color-coded journalism steeped in identity politics has always grated on my nerves. But no one does a... Read More
File under "What if a top-ranking GOP official had said this?" Chimichanga would be the new macaca. Lefty WaPo columnist Dana Milbank mocked Republicans for not doing enough to grovel to Latino voters. He snarked: "The chimichanga? It may be the only thing Republicans have left to offer Latinos." (Full context of the entire Chimichanga... Read More
I've linked to the excellent work of Australian newspaper columnist and blogger Andrew Bolt many times over the year on this blog (see here.) So I was shocked to see that he was prosecuted and found guilty today in a federal court case over two columns he wrote in 2009 about race, entitlements, and politics.... Read More
Sigh. It's good to be back home in the good ol' USA after two weeks in Europe, but I certainly didn't miss this kind of Nanny State nuttiness now manifesting itself in Colorado. Criminey: The bureaucrats are still in the rule-making stage and promise more adjustments may be made: Next up: Doll marriage diversity rules?... Read More
For those of you visiting here for the first time and looking for the pieces I mentioned on Hannity tonight, click The progressive “climate of hate:” An illustrated primer, 2000-2010 and Blame Righty: A condensed history. Yesterday, Doug Powers pointed you to the Boone County, MO Democrats' gun-themed flyer that the civility police seem to... Read More
The anchor who once shouted that he "wished he brought a gun to work" after his Magic Screen malfunctioned (h/t Allahpundit), and who works for the network that made "Crossfire" famous (see Doug Powers for an iconic screenshot), is now interrupting his show for real-time p.c. language self-policing of guests who use the term "crosshairs:"...

The new liberal mantra: Guns don't kill people. Adjectives do. The Washington Post's business columnist peddles the Left's hot political speech suppressant of the day: The Soros monkeys at Think Progress pile on: Following Saturday’s tragedy in Tucson, Arizona, which
Don't squeeze the J-Nap.
Don't squeeze the J-Nap. You've heard of the "no-fly" list. Now get a load of the no-grope list -- a roster of the privileged federal officials and politicians who don't have to be subjected to TSA's grabby hands. Lucky them, huh? Cabinet secretaries, top congressional leaders and an exclusive group of senior U.S. officials are... Read More
Photoshop credit: Another Black Conservative Readers know I've been one of DHS Secretary Janet Clownitano's most vocal critics -- dating back to 2006, when she supported a disgraceful 9/11 memorial in Arizona poisoned by left-wing radicalism, through 2008, when the shamnesty wolf in enforcement clothing was tapped by Obama to head DHS, and, of course,...

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Fort Hood massacre at the hands of jihadist soldier Nidal Hasan. Thirteen men and women, plus the unborn child of Pvt Francheska Velez, died in the bloody rampage. 1. Lt. Col. Juanita Warman, 55, Havre de Grace, Md. 2. Maj. Libardo Caraveo, 52, Woodbridge, Va. 3. Cpt. John... Read More
On Sunday night, several readers e-mailed to let me know about a cartoon in the Imperial Valley (CA) Press that upset them immensely. Reader Marty sent the jpeg. It shows two young skateboarder punks looking up at a campaign poster. The candidate is not identified. He is bald and wears an eye patch. The punks... Read More
"Bolstered diversity."
Let's start Monday morning off with a hearty chuckle. Andrew Romanoff is the "progressive" candidate in Colorado's Senate race. He's challenging establishment Democrat Michael Bennet, who's running to keep the seat he was appointed to after Ken Salazar left to become the Obama Interior Secretary. The Denver Post caught Romanoff's campaign in a bit of... Read More
I meant to mention this last week -- so many p.c. buffooneries, so little time. Remember that story I blogged on the 9th about Asian-Americans protesting a Metro rail line in Atlanta dubbed the "yellow" line? Well, the inevitable submission to "sensitivity" took place last Friday -- with transportation officials offering abject apologies to the... Read More
Asian-American grievance-mongers and "diversity" bureaucrats in Atlanta need to justify their existence and their salaries. They found the perfect opportunity. Cry "yellow!": Asian-American activists offended that MARTA re-named the train line into the heart of Atlanta's Asian community the "yellow line" will take their objections to the transit agency's chief on Friday. “Yellow,” as a...

(Hat tip: Michael Graham) One picture of Jesus gets a kid booted from the classroom. But Fort Hood killer Nidal Hasan's years of jihadist threats got him...a... Read More
Plus: Happy Whatever-You-Wannakah.
Thanksgiving's over. Time for the war on Christmas to begin anew. Groan. Goodbye, C*****mas tree. Hello, "diversity!" The latest battlefield? Orange County, CA. Really: The public outcry led the courthouse to retreat late Friday:
A new Rasmussen poll confirms the blindingly obvious about the deadly nature of blind diversity. It's good to see the American public waking up to reality. But it's a damned shame it keeps taking new rounds of jihadi eruptions to jolt them to the truth: Meanwhile: Voter confidence in America’s cond
Earlier this month, left-wing groups mau-mau-ed Texas GOP state rep. Betty Brown into apologizing for musing out loud about the bureaucratic difficulties associated with transliterated Asian-American names. Remember? Well, now comes news that another government shares Rep. Brown's concerns and which -- unlike Rep. Brown, who merely suggested that Texans of Asian descent consider changing... Read More
Reader Kyle S. e-mailed me this weekend: I'm a liberal who passes through your blog from time to time and although I disagree with you often (not always), I wanted to bring something to your attention that, though you might be aware of but I haven't seen on your blog (sorry if I missed it),...

If you want your kids to go to a university that teaches tolerance for dissent, respect for free speech, and the ability to debate ideological opponents without screaming at them and waving ferrets in their faces, do not -- I repeat, do not -- send them to the University of Massachussetts . For crying out... Read More
Speak for yourself.
AG Eric Holder says we're a "nation of cowards" on race. (link) Funny. When I think of racial cowards, I think of Barack Obama at Jeremiah Wright's church, sitting there week after week, year after year, saying nothing about the separatist demagoguery echoing from the pulpit to the pews. When I think of racial cowards,... Read More
Reparations.
Teen pop star Miley Cyrus posed for a stupid photo with her friends making slant-eye gestures. Dumb, but nothing to make a federal case out of, right? Wrong. Leave it to Asian-American grievance-mongers to blow things completely out of proportion. To borrow a phrase from President Obama's favorite inaugural preacher, Rev. Joseph Lowery, yellow is... Read More
Watch this excellent video from Andrew Marcus covering one of the most outrageous examples of P.C. on campus of the year.
It's the PC time of year...
Rudolph Derangement Syndrome I know. It's too early on a Monday for Grinches. These people are so tiresome and joyless, they aren't worth mustering up outrage over -- just pity. Pity the Rudolph-basher: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was almost grounded at Murrayville Elementary School this week after a parent complained about the classic Christmas song’s... Read More
Reader Tara e-mails: "My daughter's preschool teacher calls Indians/Native Americans '1st Americans.' I guess that's the NEW PC term. I just hope I'm not calling my kids 'Last Americans!'" On a related note, reader Becky e-mails: Michelle, Let me first say that I am married to a full Sioux, making my daughter half Sioux, and... Read More
Educational malpractice.
There's only one word for the morons who canceled a college charity fundraiser for cystic fibrosis research because those who suffer from the disease aren't racially diverse enough: Sick. Real life transcends The Onion: Beh
A school fight breaks out over dressing students as Pilgrims and Indians. Crikey. Just dress all the kids up as yams and cranberries instead and be done with it.
For those of you who have ever worked in a corporate environment and been subjected to mandatory sexual harrassment training: Bill Whittle speaks truth to p.c. power. Wait 'til you get to diversity training, Bill. Oy!
Hell to pay.
Six Virginia troopers who serve as chaplains stepped down from their jobs to protest a policy banning references to Jesus Christ in public prayers. The policy is supported by Democrat Va. Gov. Tim Kaine. Via CBN:
Don't call him a "black sheep."
Yesterday morning, I marveled at the p.c. idiocy of Dallas County (TX) commissioner John Wiley Price, who protested when his colleague Kenneth Mayfield used the term "black hole" to refer to lost paperwork. The local Fox station in Dallas-Fort Worth has the video of the exchange. The ignorance and sanctimony of John Wiley Price are... Read More
