New York Times Runs Front Page Editorial for Gun Control

Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens. – New York Times

Ummm… yeah, good luck with that.

Robert Davi is All Aboard the #TrumpTrain Baby!

This is a must read article by actor Robert Davi. Who knew Davi was such a right-winger?

We should thank God that Trump is in this race. The media and the establishment are terrified. They all have their instructions and they are in lockstep. You see, my dear fellow Americans, if Trump wins the gig is up. He will set back the destruction of America, and the globalists are in a panic. They paint Trump and his supporters as racist and uneducated. Well, guess what – I am neither and I know quite a few people who are for Trump. Some will not openly come out and say they support him because they’re afraid of being falsely labeled by some here in Hollywood…

Nothing will change in America with Kasich or any of these other candidates. Nothing. It will slow down a bit or get worse, but the current direction will continue until there is nothing left of this country. We will have a multicultural hellhole that eventually will be destroyed. The last line of defense is Donald Trump. With his brash, politically incorrect posturing, Donald Trump is holding a mirror up to the hypocrisy that has become America – a drug addicted, weak, and rudderless nation fluttering on the brink of being dismantled from within. ~ Robert Davi

Hey Newly Curious Press, Perhaps You Could Look Into the Story of @Danney_Williams

If the newly curious press that is so interested in Ben Carson’s past needs another story to investigate, they might consider this one. It’s a post from Danney William’s Facebook page.

Help my story go viral. Share!Share!Share!

My name is Danney Lee Williams, I’m the son of the 42nd President of the United States- Bill Clinton. He left me behind when he became president and haven’t looked back since. I want to know why he choose not to be a father to me and a grandfather to my 5 kids. All my life I’ve been hurt growing up without a father. Share my post to help me shed light on my story so I can get the answers I deserve.

Does Rich Lowry Not Understand Irony?

It is the height of irony for low-T manlet Rich Lowry to talk about anyone cutting off anyone’s testicles. Based on all the available evidence, Rich Lowry’s have never even descended. Perhaps Rich Lowry should avoid this type of imagery.

However, it is interesting that Lowry would adopt language and imagery that is usually employed against mainstreamers by their alt-right nemeses. I think they are clearly getting to him.

Trump Declares Boycott of Fox News

Trump has now declared that he will no longer be appearing on Fox for the foreseeable future. I don’t watch TV news programs that often because they all cause my blood pressure to skyrocket, but I do watch it occasionally and it is often on in the breakroom at work. A lot of the chatter I see on the internet is that Fox is pro-Bush. I don’t doubt this, although what I have picked up on myself is not so much that that are pro-Bush as they are just blatantly anti-Trump. I thinks Trump is doing the right thing here. A candidate can not expect all positive coverage, but it is not unreasonable to expect them not to have an obvious agenda against you.

National Review vs. the Alt-Right

Hawthorne mentioned the #NRORevolt phenomenon in the post below. Perhaps we should bring people up to speed who haven’t been following this. I’m not exactly sure what article started it all or if there was even a specific initial article that did so, but some alt-right websites have apparently put out the word on several recent NRO pieces and then swarmed the comment sections, much to the chagrin of NRO and the regular commenters there.

I haven’t commented at NRO in many years, except maybe a comment here or there that I don’t recall, so it took me a while to figure out how the game is played. I made a few deliberately pretty benign comments on a recent article, and was then accused of being an “@troll” in some of the replies. At least I thought I was being accused of being a troll. It turns out, it was actually an attempt to censor me.

From what I have picked up reading some of the comments, NRO delegates policing the comments section to senior commenters. Apparently two @troll replies from designated commenters below a comment gets the comment deleted and the Disqus user identity banned for a week.

What boggles my mind is that there are obviously some commenters who see it as their duty to police against wrongthink sneaking into the comments section and seem to relish the task of @trolling comments and getting them deleted. I simply cannot fathom this mindset. I think trolling comment sections of left and faux right websites is a useful strategy, but I have expressed concerns about the crudity of some alt-right trollers. But the censorship going on in the comment sections at NRO is not just about crudity, it is also (primarily) about the content of the thought expressed. Censoring comments to me is an expression of intellectual cowardliness. I would never think of doing such for fear that someone might think I was afraid of an intellectual fight. When I see a comment that raises my ire, I don’t think “I’m going to delete that comment.” I think, “I’m going to refute that comment.” It seems obvious to me that the former response is based on intellectual fear and the latter is based on intellectual strength.

So stand up and act like men, NRO comment section. Stop being a bunch of intellectual girly men.

So Now Rare Has Gone Feminist

“Rare Liberty” posted a link to this story on Facebook with the caption “Go ladies.”

So I guess Rare is feminist now. It would conform to their PC trend. Christian morality, tradition and chivalry dictate that women should not serve in combat positions, nor be crammed into small quarters with a bunch of men. Rare sounds like a bunch of juvenile social justice warriors on tumblr, not a serious conservative/libertarian site.
