Who knew that saying kids fare better with a mother and a father is a dangerous, bigoted concept?
Apparently tweeting support for natural marriage is hate-filled, unadulterated, and dangerous.
Case in point:
Disclosure: I support marriage between a man and a woman. (Gasp!) Anyone who’s known me since my high school days knows that I’ve held this view and don’t plan to change it. Religion isn’t telling me to believe this; I’ve done my own research, reading, and thinking to conclude this. If you disagree with these views, that’s perfectly fine. We have a beautiful right called the First Amendment. You’re entitled to your opinion, as I am entitled to mine. Respectful disagreement is perfectly acceptable. However, when you start painting mere disagreement of views as “bigotry” or “discriminatory,” I, like so many others, can’t take you seriously. How does reducing the exchange of ideas to ad hominem attacks encourage dialogue and strengthen our society? It doesn’t. You look foolish and desperate. Additionally, how do these people suppose they suppress our “dangerous, bigoted” thoughts? Implanting a microchip into our brains? Asking the NSA to spy on us? Bolshevized re-education? Sending the IRS on us?
Asking government to ban or discourage alternative views is not the solution. We’ve become so desensitized as a society that every conservative, anti-big government, religious, or pro-free market view is now perceived as racist, bigoted, and discriminatory. This is ridiculous.
Voltaire said, “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” Be good stewards of freedom and discourse, not lackeys of statism and tyranny.
Here’s the latest video from Project Veritas:
After stirring the hornet’s nest of the “Ivory Tower” media world, and being attacked regularly for hit, Project Veritas brings you Part V in our series, To Catch a Journalist.
This latest release brings our investigation full circle.
Last month, this series was criticized — before its release — by Sam Stein of the Huffington Post. He assumed we came up empty in our questions posed to a progressive “think tank” in Ohio . . . but we didn’t.
To Catch a Journalist: Rutgers Education Professor in Pay-for-Play
It was brought to my attention that some here in San Diego–namely socialists and communists–are bringing the “Occupy Wall Street” movement to San Diego, California, this October 7th,2011.
Here is a video about the Occupy San Diego gathering:
This movement aims to overthrow capitalism in exchange for some “beautiful” alternative. No matter how many times we probe these people, they fail to offer an alternative to capitalism…
Undoubtedly, these hypocrites reap the benefits of capitalism and simultaneously want to destroy it. (Irony much?) Instead, they look to socialism for an answer. Both socialism and its ugly cousin communism are defined by collective farms, redistribution of wealth, poverty, pogroms, and nonexistent human rights. Is this the alternative they seek?
The corporatists in Wall Street–who are sympathetic to crony capitalism, not free market enterprise–are to blame for our nation’s financial woes. Interestingly enough, these protesters have no complaints about them or their ties to the Obama Administration. Nevertheless, these Occupy Wall Street hooligans routinely blame capitalism for their problems.
Why do people continue to dismiss history? Look at Nazi Germany, the former USSR, Vietnam, Cuba, and similar nations. Communism and socialism do not work. They reduce(d) people to human debris.
My parents endured communism and later escaped the former USSR. They came here to escape brutal conditions found in their former homeland. My mom–a devout Catholic–could not openly practice her religion. Similarly, my dad was subjugated to institutionalized anti-Semitism. Capitalism in America was the only system that could ensure their freedom.
The question beckons: if communism and socialism were so beautiful, why did my parents and other Soviet refuseniks/political refugees leave?
People need to think twice about socialism before demanding it here in America. Pay attention to the Obama Administration’s socialist programs being shoved down our throats.

We’ve all heard the ruckus about Jersey Shore‘s Snooki and her ludicrous speech fee. Polizzi’s recent speaking engagement (wait, she can speak in complete sentences and has something intelligent to say?) at Rutgers University in New Jersey caused a stir and angered many people there.
Apparently, $32, 000 in student fees (ahem, codeword for your tax dollars) were set aside for this MTV-glossed powder puff to talk about GTL, smushing, and late-night hookups. Here’s what 32K is worth: “Study hard, party harder.”
Doug Giles sets the record straight with his latest article on Townhall.com:
Well, mom and dad (who are still worth their salt), you now can officially scratch Rutgers off the list of colleges to visit this summer with your high schooler. The kicker in this hellish scenario is that this over-tanned hobbit with the morals of a drunken alley cat and the brainpower of a hockey puck got two grand more than Nobel-winning author Toni Morrison will be getting for her commencement address at Rutgers U later this year. I’ve got two words for this misappropriation of funds: Revelation Eighteen.
Greg Gutfeld‘s humorous take on the Rutger brouhaha is shown below:
While Greg points out that Snooki is “harmless,” those dismayed by Paul Krugman, Bill Clinton, Van Jones, communists/Marxists, and socialists should get conservative speakers from YAF. The speakers bureau includes Ann Coulter, Ben Stein, Michael Reagan, Dinesh D’Souza, Michelle Malkin, Jason Mattera, Doug Giles, David Horowitz, Ann McElhinney, Steve Forbes, and many more! Here from real intellectuals, not incompetent noobs.
Horowitz Freedom Center unveiled its Palestinian “Wall of Lies” several months ago for students to display on campus during “Israel Apartheid Week” this year.
Here is the promo video detailing the disturbing nature of that crazy week:
According to the Wall of Lies website, these are the schools that have jumped on board this effort:
These are the schools where campus organizations have signed up to participate in our campaign by either hosting film screenings, a speaker, displaying the Wall of Lies, or a combination of all three. (note – while there are Israel Apartheid Weeks going on at some of these schools, this list refers to the schools that we are working with to promote the truth about the middle east conflict and is not indicative of all the anti-Israel activity on campus.) :
Florida Atlantic University
Michigan State University
Penn State University
UNC – Chapel Hill
University of Pennsylvania
YOU can host a “Wall of Lies” on your university! Contact Jeffrey Wiener of Horowitz Freedom Center at 818-849-3470 ext 206 to learn how you can get involved and repel the Muslim Students Association and Students for Justice in Palestine this Spring!
