Attack Until We Crack

November 11, 2016 Criticus Ferox 33

I hope everyone has been enjoying themselves. But let’s get real now. While Trump’s victory was a tremendous achievement, the situation remains extremely grim. The election results demonstrate that basically half of the current population of America is in the grips of the left, either as zealots or complacent followers. This is the product of years of indoctrination through every major sector of American culture – the institutions of education, the arts and entertainment sectors, [Continue reading]

Leftist Philosophers’ Inverted Moral Qualia

November 10, 2016 Muckraker 17

Daily Nous’ Justin Whineberg should check his privilege and stop writing this garbage, unless he wants Trump elected for a second Term in four years. Whineberg arrogantly assumes that philosophers are, and should be, shocked and frightened by the election results. So in his little moment of soul-searching introspection that would make an emo Barnes & Noble barista blush, he asks, What should we (philosophers) do as a philosophical community, now that Trump has been [Continue reading]

Clinton, Wikileaks, and Spirit Cooking

November 8, 2016 That Single Individual 6

A few days ago I posted to say that a vote for Clinton is a vote for Satan. Many no doubt thought I was being facetious. I was not. Buried in one of the most recent rounds of Wikileaks revelations is news that John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, is apparently the sort of guy who receives invitations from “artist” Marina Abramovic to spirit cooking dinners. In a 2015 e-mail, Abramovic wrote Tony Podesta, the brother [Continue reading]

Craig and the “Lesser of Two Evils” Argument for Voting Trump

November 7, 2016 Federal Philosopher 11

Christian philosopher William Lane Craig has recently triggered the few remaining never-Trumpers by recommending—albeit by implication— that Christians ought to vote for Donald Trump. You can listen to the audio here (beginning at 5:50). Craig blasts the view (held by many Christians) that we should refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils as being a “very immature and even childish view of moral decision making.” It is a “common moral experience,” Craig maintains, [Continue reading]

What is the Core Principle of the Alt-Right?

November 7, 2016 Walter Montgomery 13

Earlier this week, Federal Philosopher explained why she, as a conservative, is not chummy with the so-called alt-right. In the comments section, others called the alt-right an enemy to conservatism. I watched the discussion that ensued with great interest, as I had never even heard of the alt-right before Trump’s nomination, and I am still trying to figure out what exactly it is. In this piece, I hope to make some headway with respect to [Continue reading]

On Freedom, Excellence, Liberals and Minorities

November 5, 2016 Catholic Hulk 58

Freedom is tricky thing to understand, for there are many different kinds. Here’s a short list: 1. Freedom from external restraint. For example, I am free in the sense that I am not imprisoned by steel bars, shackles, nor bound by rope. Those guys at Guantanamo Bay? Not so much. 2. Freedom from internal necessity—our choices are not determined by any internal necessity. 3. Freedom from moral bind. For example, if married, I am not [Continue reading]

Trumplings Probably Destroyed the Right

November 3, 2016 Conservatrarian 48

The decision to nominate Trump was a mistake. In fact, it was worse than a mistake. It was suicidal. But the decision having been taken and having become inevitable, conservatives ought to vote for Trump if they are going to vote at all. The choice between two non-conservatives was forced upon us, but conservatism can survive only one of them, and his name ain’t Hillary Clinton. Still, Trump will probably lose the election (although the [Continue reading]

Expert Philosophy Journalist Leiter Tries to Smear Rightly Considered Again: But It’s an Abject Failure

November 2, 2016 AR-15 5

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]

“Anyone but Trump”? No, no thank you, not when a vote for Clinton is a vote for Satan

November 2, 2016 That Single Individual 16

My political views are very recognizably Right—that’s why I’ve decided to contribute to this site. But they’re also what many on both the mainstream Right and Left would no doubt consider paranoid “conspiracy theory.” However, as our world descends into greater absurdity by the day (and, dare I say, depravity), it’s becoming exceedingly difficult to deny that a force beyond all human calculation and control has apparently overtaken us. Events are unfolding by an anti-logic, [Continue reading]
