A veteran’s moral outrage at bellicose politicians

I think it’s difficult for us to admit that people willing to conduct violence in exchange for money and status are plentiful. So while I applaud the appeal to moral outrage on behalf of the trigger pullers, it alone isn’t enough.

At my alma mater, Stanford, a curriculum which used to address questions like “what is justice” in its Western Civilization requirement was put on the chopping block in the name of a broader and much shallower curriculum full of cultural relativism.

But at the same time, exposing the cowardice and hypocrisy of politicians is ALWAYS a good idea.

When Communists Realize they are Not the Majority

“In most communist movements, there comes a moment when they realize that they are not the majority. Post WWII France and the Bolshevik election failures come to mind.

Something similar keeps happening in America which is why American communists re-brand so often.”

I’m thinking of how BLM and anti-Trump antics have only increased his popularity.

Jewish Republicans conflicted over Trump

Prominent Jewish Republican leaders and activists show little sign of being able to unify publicly in responding to Donald Trump’s emergence as their party’s presidential front-runner — even after Trump’s failure to condemn dedicated anti-Semites and racists and his declaration that he would be “neutral” on Israel.

With Trump’s triumph in the March 1 Super Tuesday primaries, some in the community are sounding alarm bells, calling for action before it is too late to stop his race to the top. But others in the Jewish Republican camp are cautioning against collectively rejecting Trump.
