The Internet Monk is Wrong to Wish Obama an Unqualified Successful Presidency

That is utterly ridiculous. I know a lot of people who are horrified at an Obama presidency and none of them care one lick that he is black. What about the wide spread support of Alan Keyes? What about the folks who pined for Condi Rice to run? Then, when we heard examples of contemptible statements none of them supported the racial aspect. So where did this come from? I’ll tell you what it sounded like to me- it sounded like a very clever way to call people racists without using the word. Saying it bluntly would have seen immediately as insulting and patently false. Instead, it was still insulting and patently false, but cleverly worded. Still an insult and still patently false. Mr. Spencer calls people to repentance for saying the things they said. He should repent for this insult to fellow Christians.

But I don’t want to dwell on this aspect. My problems with his post run far deeper.

Or has he? A reader calling himself “Switters” writes: “Unfortunately, your …

The flight of the right

The runaway Right by Olavo de Carvalho If there is anything to be dismayed about, it is the difference, the abysmal disparity, between the multiplicity of fronts on which the activist Left launches its attacks against democracy, and the slavish modesty with which the advocates of democracy, while implicitly surrendering to the general strategy of …

Cancel everything you know

Cancel everything you know   Donald Hank Soon I will be posting an article by Olavo de Carvalho entitled “The runaway right,” which describes the abject unwillingness of conservatives (or “classic liberals”) to defend against the most outrageous and transparent lies and distortions of the Left. At the beginning, the author lists names of Marxist …
