I must admit, when I first heard of Sophie A. Lewis, I thought she was a cleaver hoax invented by a conservative blogger designed to show us just how vacuous a feminist philosopher can be. Ms. Lewis has been described as feminist uterine geography theorist and cyborg ecologist. Please!
A newly minted Ph.D, educated in England, now living in Philadelphia, her academic interests include cyborg theory, Marxist feminism, queer environmental humanities and social reproduction i.e. abortion and paid surrogacy. She refers to a woman with child as a “gestator.” Though one is hard-pressed to make sense of her literary ramblings in a variety of publicans, The New York Times took her seriously enough to allow a recent op-ed on British feminists who are hostile to transgenders taking over their space.

It’s her latest tirade against efforts to limit abortions in this country that takes this debate where few politicians are willing to go

While much has been written about worthless college courses, the “Angry White Male Studies,” course, which will be offered at the University of Kansas in the fall of 2019, takes the cake. It is right up there with a course offered at Stanford, “White Identity Politics,” and one at Hunter College in New York called the “Abolition of Whiteness.”
How is any of that garbage going to help a young person land a good job and succeed in life unless one is seeking employment as a race-baiter? It might help if you are applying with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/Push Coaltion or Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, non-profits in the business of shaking down businesses for contributions, concessions or contracts. Rather limited, don’t you think?
The Angry White Male Studies course requires students take “Women, Gender, and Sexuality” 101 or 102 as a prerequisite. But of course! What a natural transition between gender studies, i.e. radical feminism, and hating Continue reading “Angry White Male Studies — The latest Worthless College Course”
Legend has it that the emperor Nero played the fiddle while the ancient city of Rome burned for six days, destroying 70 percent of the city and leaving half of its population homeless.
While it is unlikely this actually happened, given that the violin hadn’t been invented yet, it is true that he was an unpopular, evil, ineffectual leader in a time of crises. Some believe he actually started the fire because he used this opportunity to build a magnificent palace surrounded by lush gardens for himself on the land that had been cleared by the blaze.
Now it’s Congress that is fiddling around while the country is facing, not one, but two crises. The first is our national debt that has reached a staggering $22 trillion, with no real plan for relief in sight. Continue reading “Congress Fiddles while U.S. Burns”
This is the week where real feminists separate from their radical counterparts. For the uninformed, March 8, is officially International Women’s Day, but it is the catalyst for weeklong events held throughout this country and around the world. Sounds harmless, if not downright inspiring to many unsuspecting women and girls who want to celebrate the right to be all that they can be. Unfortunately, it comes with a lot of baggage you may not want for your daughter or yourself.https://www.americanprogress.org/events/2019/02/26/466672/international-womens-day/
This annual event was begun in 1909 in New York by the Socialist Party of America. In 1917, it became a national holiday in Russia and was primarily celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until 1975 when it was embraced by the United Nations.

As State of the Union speeches go they are usually yawners. This one, with few exceptions, was a barn burner.
If you missed it, don’t worry; you will see its most dramatic moments replayed over and over in Republican 2020 campaign ads. Trump deftly used this address to expose the Democrats soft underbelly of open borders, devoid of bipartisanship and reason.
The president set the tone when he invited Democrats to “Choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.” Clearly the Democrats, with few exceptions, decided on, gridlock, resistance, vengeance and destruction.
Democratic women, led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, did themselves no favor by wearing white, which they said was to express solidarity with working women around the country. They want us to believe Continue reading “SOTU Exposes Democrats Soft Underbelly (A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Insincere Words)”
Why do more college-educated women continue to prefer Democrat candidates over Republican? Surely they are smart enough to understand that capitalism (preferred by Republicans), though not perfect, provides a higher standard of living than socialism (preferred by Democrats)!
Perhaps they simply are too busy working to pay off student loans, while trying to balance a career and motherhood, to notice. These women seem to fall for the line Democrats trot out before every election about the wage gap. It goes like this: Women working full-time make only 82 percent of what a man makes. It’s not fair. No matter how hard you work you are going to wind up on the short end of the stick and, of course, you need Democrats to save you from this ugly form of discrimination.
Democrats are the party that is against all forms of discrimination unless, of course, it involves discrimination against men in general and white and Asian men in particular. Continue reading “Wage Gap Explained, Again”
Many years ago I discovered a dirty little secret about left-wing ideologues in the Democratic Party. Yes, I know these terms are largely redundant. The few remaining Democrats who don’t fit that description are either political neophytes or hopeless optimists. They still believe the party line about protecting the poor and working class.
The dirty little secret is that when liberals don’t have an argument they can sell, rather than discuss policy, they call you names. “Racist” and “sexist” are two of the most overused.
Now, after the Kavanaugh debacle, they have been exposed. The liberals, who vowed to defeat this brilliant jurist no matter what the cost, have turned that argument back on themselves. They wanted — and still want — to convict Kavanaugh of sexual assault with no evidence simply because he is a white male. Continue reading “Look Who is Racist Now”
