We finally have a Twitter account. You can follow us at: @RightConsidered Follow us and we’ll follow you, especially if you are a left wing extremist.
Lyin’ Brian says our blog is a home for racists and anti-Semites and calls our blog a racist and anti-Semite blog. Presumably he thinks that the blog is also a leftist blog since (a) he reads it and (b) we have a liberal comment policy with leftists commenting. If racist comments make our blog racist, then leftist comments make our blog leftist! He does note, though, that some on the blog are trying to resist the [Continue reading]
Brian Leiter is up to his zany antics again, this time trying to smear Rightly Considered as “alt-right” and associated with sexists and anti-Semites. One of the things some of us admire about Leiter is that, unlike his boyish rival at Daily Nous, Brian has the cojones to criticize us publicly. It even seems, dare I say, that some of Nietzsche’s manliness has rubbed off on him. Moreover, some of us have a suspicion that deep [Continue reading]
Leftists, particularly those race-obsessed experts in the righteous (though admittedly mysterious) discipline of victimology, have of late been trumpeting the cause of one Michelle Alexander, full-time attorney, “advocate” (whatever that means), and part-time legal professor at several notable universities. The “cause” is set forth in her recent best-seller, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness (New York: The New Press, 2012).

What do you think? More bullying from the tolerant and inclusive left?
I’ve often wondered what system or set of standards my leftist colleagues deploy when assigning grades. Do they give all students C’s regardless of outcomes on tests? Or A’s? Do they only grade effort but not performance? Do they make easier assignments for students who come to college with lower ACT/SAT scores? After all, not everyone comes to college with the same level of intelligence or virtues applicable to succeeding in the academy. So some will have [Continue reading]
I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a fan of unions. (No surprise from a conservative blog!) Growing up with family in and out of unions, my general experience was that union work tended to be more expensive for shoddier work. In the construction industry, the union carpenters (e.g.) would have more leverage for securing larger jobs even though it was widely known that their work was of lesser quality. So from personal experience, I come [Continue reading]
