I was given 250 words to reply to the Durham Herald Sun's report on a protest of my recent appearance in Chapel Hill. (Listen or download this excellent radio overview of the controversy, first with ICON director Janie Wagstaff, and then my discussion.)

The letter appeared on October 27, 2016.

To the editor --

A recent story includes unsubstantiated attacks on me.

I am not a “hate speaker” because I write about Islamic blasphemy law, which outlaws criticism of Islam and Mohammed, and for which the punishment is often death; or because I cover tyrannical speech codes that once-free societies are imposing as Western states submit...

Behold, my own personal protesters (above) in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, snapped en route to the parking lot of a lecture hall where I was to give a speech on October 18. My topic? The origins and impact of the Marxist-Bolshevik-Fabian-Socialist-Democrat-Progessive-Alinskyite-micro-aggression-trigger-warning censorship movement against truth and tradition that is opaquely known as "politically correct." 



Ironic, no?

Actually, we're way past ironic, and deep into the danger zone where the ideological and the doctrinaire dominate discourse -- but also make people cower. As I explained nearly ten years ago in my first book, The Death of the Grown-Up, this same "politically correct" movement to silence speech and political discourse generally has made common cause with...

Paul Nachman discusses this remarkable video compilation, showcasing Donald J. Trump through the decades, "declaring his love of country and acknowledging a reluctant willingness—if he sees the need—to step up and serve it."

The consistency, the clarity is striking, also inspiring.

Trump has been thinking about how to #MAGA adult life at least since he was in his early 30s.

November 8 is the day to help him begin.

 

The wisdom (and humor) of the American people is sustaining!     

 

A good point. Looking back on the vicious attacks on Sarah Palin and her family, I came across a series of 2010 tweets from one of those dime-a-dozen demons among us, this one in the post-modern guise of a "comedian" known as Louis C.K., real name Louis Szekely. 

The tweets, which I missed the first time around, are the vile ravings of a demented person. They are also, in postmodern parlance, "sexist," "offensive" and demeaning -- dehumanizing -- to anyone reading such stupidly obscene invective about an exceptional American woman who is a wife, mother, former governor or Alaska, and former GOP vice presidential candidate. 

No, of course, Louis C.K. is not running for president. His filthy remarks about Palin are...

This is the first paragraph of an email from Bill Ivey to John Podesta, which was among a Wikileaks release this week, as first reported by Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson here.

Bill Ivey is a well-connected Democrat with a capital "D." According to his bio at his website, titled, Global Cultural Strategies, this folklore scholar and "experienced non profit executive" served as Bill Clinton's NEA director from 1998-2001, is a trustee for the Center for American Progress, and was a "Team Leader in the Barack Obama presidential transition." 

John Podesta, of course, is chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Ivey's email to...

There is something almost magical about this three and a half minutes of video, capturing that pre-debate moment when Donald Trump began again to pull back his slingshot and aim, this time with more accuracy and sureness, at the Uniparty-Unimedia Behemoth; this time, with righteous women at his side.

Paula, Juanita and Kathleen: Thank you for standing up and speaking out about what the Clintons did to you for all these many years. Kathy, thank you for coming forward more recently to add your name to this crucially important quest to expose the Clintons' corruption and violation not only of your precious persons, but of the entire body politic.

You, and women like you, personally suffered the torment that the rapacious and meglomanical Clinton couple has inflicted; and that the political-media phalanx, from MSM-Left to Bush-Family-Right, which has served and protected the Clintons for all of these decades, made seemingly eternal. It is this phalanx that stood in the way of justice; that ignored...

Did this lewdest, crudest and most putrid behavior (not talk), ever drive press and Democratic party elders to call on President Bill Clinton to resign? Never. 

---

As the globalists leave what they hope and pray and have planned and calculated is a sinking USS Deplorables, opening hatches as they disembark, preening, in a cloud of noxious hypocrisy, it is not enough to say, Good riddance.

It is time to nail their hypocrisy to the wall, revealing the moral depravity underneath -- and, more immediately dangerous, the political movement that will finally and completely destroy this nation under another Clinton. 

This is a long (maybe lifelong) project. But time is short. I will focus today narrowly on the hypocrisy of the onslaught du jour -- how it is that the political-media complex is trying to eliminate Donald Trump before Election Day with calls for him to "step aside" over his 2005 hot mic conversation on a tv set with host Billy Bush. This was released to "the press" on the same day that a signal 2013 speech to a Brazilian bank by Hillary Clinton came to us little people, not from the dark arts masters of the Clinton campaign, of course, but through Wikileaks.

On the tenth anniversary of Wikileaks, Julian Assange spoke with Spiegel, which, in case it is unclear from the interview questions below, is a publication of the journalistic persuasion. 

I find I have not written about Assange for some years. I wrote in his defense back when the Rightward world, from Rush to Jonah Goldberg to Sarah Palin to Bill Kristol and on and on, was calling for his head, literally, in murderous terms not inspired even by an Aldrich Ames. On review, I also find this nasty bit from...
