Amidst the current atmosphere of heightened racial hypersensitivity, it would seem unimaginable for an entertainer to recklessly use […]
At times, you register news in an accidental sequence. While certain items were not intended to be related a link between them emerges in your mind. Indeed, you discover, a relationship exists because their cores are fused by a common denominator.
Duly Noted’s first case is […]
You have noticed that “racist” has become a magic word. Incant it to win a debate; at least in a PC-infected court. This (ab)use of a word is thought provoking. The same happened to “fascist” or terms such as “super”. Everything has become super –unless it is […]
Barack Obama won’t be saying, “If I had a psycho son, he’d look like Vester Lee.” But he might as well. Because Vester Lee Flanagan II, the bigoted maniac who murdered the WDBJ reporter and cameraman Wednesday on live TV, was a philosophical offspring of the Left.
What do the ingredients in this potpourri of observations about current events have in common? Truth and high toxicity.
