Gov. Gavin Newsom was forced to apologize Friday after a news report surfaced that he attended a fancy dinner party honoring a top political adviser, which occurred as the governor is discouraging households from gathering together for their own parties during the upcoming holiday season.
Democrats and their media cohorts are scrambling to figure out what to do about Joe Biden's self-inflicted court packing problem. Biden, as we noted yesterday, not only asserted that American voters "don't deserve" to know where he stands on court packing but made the absurd statement that Republicans are "court packing" by lawfully filling an open seat on the Supreme Court. A move Biden ludicrously claims is "not constitutional."
Every time I hear "progressive" these days, I kind of laugh a little inside. Is there anything less progressive than a backwards-looking ideology that embraces the worst of the twentieth century?
Today's "progressives" love the 1930s and the 1960s best of all, but any dated, last century communist revolutionary antic is apparently on the table.
Here at LI, we have long covered the Marxist takeover of college education and its devolution into the crazed, self-righteous cancel culture cult that has taken over the leftstream media, Hollywood, and major corporations. Campus culture has become American culture in many disturbing and alarming ways, and as Andrew Breitbart famously noted "politics is downstream from culture."
USA Today is under fire for publishing one of the most biased, ridiculous (ridicule-worthy), and culturally illiterate "fact checks" of all time. Or at least, given the TDS-addled tenor of the leftstream media in recent years, this week.
Over the holiday weekend, I was alerted, via the Conor Friedersdorf twitter feed, to the a meeting that took place on Zoom and was recorded for posterity, of an advisory local school council in Manhattan:
Apparently the left believes that the word "master" has only one meaning and is never / was never used in any other way in the history of the world. Sigh.
I am really just over the crazy, but here we are, now lefties are changing the names of "master bedrooms" and "master sommeliers" and who knows what's next? Master's degrees? MCs at events and in bands? Masterpiece? Master at Arms? Chess master?
If there's one moment that should chill the radical left and its mind-numbed robots to its core, it's the recent Washington Post article attacking a random leftist woman for "racism" at one of its own Halloween costume parties, a party that took place two years ago.
The appalling, sloppy, unprofessional mean girl hit piece on a non-public figure ended up getting the woman fired from her job.
As seems to be the case throughout history, those in the midst of historic events rarely see them clearly or understand their significance in the moment. It takes decades to make sense of things, how they fell apart, what eventually took place to turn the tide, and even then, it's easy to get it all wrong.
Earlier this week, Stacey covered the New York Times op-ed "scandal" in which a prominent Republican senator published an op-ed about President Trump considering invocation of the Insurrection Act, a perfectly reasonable response to the wide-spread rioting, looting, arson, and murder our nation has endured for ten or more days.
I wish I could say this is a parody, folks, but it's not.
Marvel Comics is introducing a team of superheroes based on social justice warrior culture, and they are not making fun of it. They're celebrating it.
On Super Tuesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) came in third in her home state of Massachusetts and fourth in Oklahoma, the state in which she grew up. The humiliating damage to her 2020 presidential aspirations couldn't be ignored, and she dropped out two days later.
CNN has been racing to the ratings bottom for years now, and their latest ridiculous attacks on the satiric website the Babylon Bee are sure to help them along the way.
The wildly popular Christian satire site has come under fire from CNN before, but this time, it's CNN that reads like satire.
