The election question: visceral or rational?

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. – “The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye. The more light you shine on it, the more it will contract.”

Georgia H walks away. Scott Johnson – “She says that Teach for America made her “abandon the racism of the left. AOC made me abandon the left altogether. … here are the notes that Georgia H herself has added in response to the comments on her video” – The notes themselves speak strongly about the issues at hand.

15 characteristics of white supremacy culture. Lubos Motl – “James Lindsay (who is one of the three scholars behind the mass production of hoaxes in grievance studies) posted this incredible list of the evil aspects of “white supremacy”, as they are taught to kids at the Belvedere Elementary School in Virginia” … “this summary of the “critical race theory”, a subject that seems worse than any propaganda that the Soviet bloc students have experienced during communism, is truly yummy and attacks quite some elementary prerequisites of the civilization – and, indeed, of the human supremacy in comparison with other animals.”

Jennifer Newsom’s Documentary Blames The American Founders For Democrats’ Failures. Patricia Ducey – “the documentary’s conclusion lands right on critical theory’s rocky shore: America’s founding at the hands of white males is so inherently racist and sexist that all negative life experiences can be attributed to it, and radical change is necessary to correct it. While Newsom never tells us what that radical change might entail, if viewers know anything about the French, Bolshevik, or Maoist revolutions, they should recoil in horror.”

Trump-Hating Journalists Write Fiction, Not News. Itxu Díaz – “They tell horror stories about what Trump might do to scare voters.” … “The problem with wild hypothesis journalism is that it has no limits.” … “What seems more perverse is to invent detailed events that have not occurred just to put a face on a political argument.”

Don’t Defend Columbus—Celebrate Him. Dave Seminara – “The Italian explorer who opened America to the West deserves tribute.” … “Columbus has been under attack since at least 1980, when Howard Zinn vilified him” … “Social-justice cultists like La Spata insist on evaluating men from the fifteenth century by woke 2020 standards but refuse to consider the broader Italian-American story, which is replete with the adverse experience of discrimination and long-forgotten mob violence.”
