It’s Gay Pride Month, and I’m casting about for ways to celebrate this awesome event. Even as early as three years ago, I observed shampoo and mouthwash coming out of the closet at Target stores. Yes, really! And now that Burger King Whoppers are turning fruity, that really got my attention. Fast food without sociopolitical messages is way too twentieth century, after all; it’s the Current Year! Fine, I’ll get with the times already! What better way to commemorate the joys of same-sex attraction than with a movie review? (more…)

What Law Enforcement and First Responders Need to Know about White Nationalism
White Nationalism has been quite a hot topic in political discourse lately. There have been high-level politicians who have declared it to be the United States’ number one threat. It’s important for people like you — police, first responders, and federal agents — to get some clarity and accurate information about the subject. (more…)
“I Write About Communist Space Goths”: An Interview with Beau Albrecht
Thomas Nelson Page’s Social Life in Old Virginia Before the War
What was life like in the antebellum South? Obviously it’s going to be a matter of perspective. Thomas Nelson Page provided one such viewpoint, the type we seldom hear about lately. He was a lawyer in his early career and a diplomat later, but is best known as a writer.
Aside from several novels, he published a non-fiction account of the Old South as he remembered it during his boyhood. This was Social Life in Old Virginia Before the War (New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1897). It’s a quick read, providing a glimpse into a bygone time. (more…)
White Americans’ Racial Consciousness is No Longer an Unknown Quantity
Perhaps the greatest challenge facing us is that whites are the only race that isn’t taking its own side. In a very competitive world, decades of this nonsense have led us to the brink of a crisis.
Readers are surely familiar with the unprecedentedly massive propaganda campaign that got this started long ago, the forces behind it, and the social pressures maintaining the march to self-destruction. (more…)
Student loan forgiveness has been in the headlines quite a bit lately. One of the articles is “Warren urges Biden to cancel student loan debt before midterms” by CBS News. Although Pocahontas is a legislator and surely must be aware of the separation of powers doctrine, she curiously takes the position that the student loans may be erased if Resident Bidet decrees it so.

An article emerged on April 14, “Man, 20, charged with hate crimes in attack on 2 Sikh men in NYC,” by Marlene Lenthang and Sakshi Venkatraman. This was picked up by MSN, Yahoo! News, and some other outlets. It begins describing an attack on two victims, ages 76 and 64:
A man has been charged with hate crimes after two Sikh men were assaulted, robbed and had their turbans ripped off in Queens, New York, this week. (more…)
The Pornographers Who (Said They) Fought for Freedom of Expression
The pioneering pornographer Al Goldstein, publisher of Screw and similar refined journals of onanistic art, was famous for many things. Foremost, he was a notorious culture-distorter. (I’ll credit him with at least being an honest one; he said very plainly what he was all about.) Also, he was so liberal that it hurts. In light of that, it’s quite odd that his interview in the April 1978 edition of Hustler, conducted by Larry Flynt, is remarkably politically incorrect. (more…)
Sometimes a celebrated movie about young guys looking for love — well, sort of — will inaugurate an entire series. This was so for towering epics of cinema like Porky’s and American Pie. Before these, there was an earlier archetype, Lemon Popsicle. This was remade as The Last American Virgin and also inspired a few other spinoffs. What sets the original apart from these well-known gems of the silver screen is that it came from America’s greatest ally, the only true democracy in the Middle East, and the conscience of the world — which of course is our brave little friend Israel.

There’s been a lot going on in the world. The last few years have been a very bumpy ride, and with no signs of abating. Lately, the illegitimate occupant of the White House rapidly undid three and a half decades of progress toward détente with Russia and reignited the Cold War. We have lots of other fine messes, of course: inflation the highest since the Carter Quarters days, turbulence in the stock market, soaring fuel prices, and so forth. A food shortage may possibly be the next engineered crisis. None of that is going to matter much if the mentally incompetent Resident Bidet gets the bright idea to push the Big Red Button, however.

Roots, the mother of the television miniseries, recently reached its 45th anniversary. It was based on Alex Haley’s book Roots: The Saga of an American Family. The story begins with Kunta Kinte, a young Mandinka tribesman from the Gambia who was captured and put on a slave ship bound for colonial America. It further covers his descendants and their tribulations, ending during the Radical Reconstruction.
All told, the acting is pretty decent for a TV program, featuring several existing and up-and-coming stars. LeVar Burton, who played the younger Kunta Kinte, does the haunted look just about as well as Nicolas Cage. (more…)
Tucked away into a plandemic relief act, there was an appropriation included toward substance abuse harm reduction programs, with the modest title Notice Of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) No. SP-22-001. The total aid toward that was $30 million — not such a big deal in terms of major government programs, such as a typical spit-in-your-eye war. Given the number of American adults who pay income tax, this means the average working stiff will fork over about 20 cents for it. (more…)
