One former College Republican leader has been shamed into resignation, after his participation in the ‘Unite the Right’ rally over the weekend.

Liberals should agree: Free speech is for everyone, especially the little guys

  You know you’re dealing with a universal truth when the Atlantic agrees with conservatives on something. They recently ran an article entitled, “It’s Disadvantaged Groups That Suffer Most When Free Speech Is Curtailed on Campus.” The simple principle that freedoms protect the minority in race, class, and thought is synonymous with our founding. We […]

The term “millennial” has become meaningless

Tomi Lahren got slammed for saying that millennials don’t like labels – but she wasn’t wrong. Ironically, the one label millennials dislike the most is the millennial label itself.

“How Edgy”: Comedian’s attempt at an anti-Trump joke backfires brilliantly

Comedian Patton Oswalt is trying to stay relevant. His most recent stunt, an incredibly stupid tweet that has backfired spectacularly. The doughy comedian had the gall to shoot off a tweet insulting the president.

Congratulations. If you are a free speech warrior, The NY Times thinks you’re a “troll”

Lindy West wants to save free speech — not from destructive censorship, but from conservatives, or as she calls them, “trolls.” In a ridiculous op-ed, published earlier this month for The New York Times, Lindy West claimed that silencing conservative voices on Twitter isn’t a form of censorship.

Religious ignorance: Liberals think the RNC called Trump our “New King”

Reince Priebus and Co-Chair Sharon Day released a statement celebrating Christmas. Now, liberals on Twitter are freaking out. They think the GOP compared Donald J. Trump to Jesus Christ — or declared him as America’s new King. Buzzfeed jumped all over the story immediately, even reaching out to Sean Spicer for comment. The part of […]

Montel Williams told me I was “guilty of sedition” for working for Trump

Last week, I took a stroll on the Left side of Twitter, the liberal side of Twitter. I decided to follow Montel Williams. I was a bit shocked to immediately get a response from him, “why, I’m literally curious?” Let’s stop right here. First, I believe in diversity of thought. I don’t always agree with […]

Trump’s flag-burning ban is about reviving America’s patriotism (not about policy)
