NFL Salutes Woke Culture

Written by Robert Knight

Five years ago, on Sept. 11, 2016, the National Football League unveiled a remarkable two-minute video, “Football Is America.” Featuring well-known black and white players, the video saluted the military, first responders, and the idea of e Pluribus Unum – out of many, one. They didn’t actually use the phrase, but it was clearly the message.

Football, the players said, was a great healing agent following the horror of the 9/11 terrorist attack 15 years earlier.… Continue Reading

Happy Pride Month! Celebrating the Essential Vice and Utmost Evil

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

On June 1, 2021, Joe Biden used his bully pulpit to encourage Americans to stand proud in our nation’s march for what he called equality. “Pride stands for courage. [Pride] stands for justice, and most of all [pride] stands for love … Happy Pride Month!” the president tweeted.

In the fall of 1942, C.S. Lewis took to the airways of his nation to encourage his fellow citizens to, likewise, stand resolute.… Continue Reading

RINOs and Never-Trumpers Help Leftists Destroy America

Written by Laurie Higgins

In the past year, we saw anarchists savagely beat innocent people in the street; take control of city blocks; incinerate police precincts; burn Bibles; attack churches; loot businesses; tear down federal monuments; deface public property; and parade naked in front of, hurl obscenities at, and even assault police officers.

We saw Democratic mayors and governors command law enforcement to stand down while the lawless destroyed communities and livelihoods.

We saw Democratic governors ban socially distanced corporate worship of God while permitting shoulder-to-shoulder street protests and riots—riots that were praised by Democrats in our neighborhoods, halls of Congress, and press as “mostly peaceful protests.”… Continue Reading

Young White Liberals Living Out Their “Teenage Anarchist Fantasy”

Written by Peter Heck

Make no mistake about it, Anna Kendrick, the actress/singer famous for roles in the Pitch Perfect and Trolls movies, undoubtedly considers herself quite woke. She is a Hollywood actress who is fully cognizant of what she’s supposed to say, when she’s supposed to say it, and what power she is supposed to “speak truth” to in order to maintain pop culture credibility.

That said, Kendrick bravely ventured into a position of “unlikely voice of reason” on Twitter recently when she properly identified what the mainstream media has been decidedly unable to deduce or unwilling to admit.… Continue Reading
