Divided We Stand: A Traditionalist Manifesto

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 04 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Today’s conservatives are generally people who have assimilated into yesterday’s liberals’ culture. And every time we compromise — on civil unions, big-government programs or whatever it may be — we assimilate further.

Divided We Stand: A Traditionalist Manifesto

Conservatives are generally very nice people — who never saw a culture war they couldn’t lose. That is to say, we often hear cracks about how Barack Obama and his ilk may “evolve” on issues, but conservatives exhibit that tendency, too, and their evolution goes something like this:

Why Is the Southern Poverty Law Center Trying to Crush a Small Jewish Organization?

Written by Selwyn Duke on Friday, 31 January 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

A lawsuit filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center seeks to prevent a faith-based organization from helping those who wish to overcome their homosexual impulses.

Why Is the Southern Poverty Law Center Trying to Crush a Small Jewish Organization?

It seems as if certain purported civil-rights activists think homosexuals are like some organized-crime groups: you can join the gang, but the only way you can leave is feet first.

Thus Spake the Potheads

Selwyn Duke: “I’m simply pointing out that the main arguments used to legitimize pot are pap.”

Thus Spake the Potheads

It’s starting to appear as if marijuana users have become the homosexual lobby of the chemically dependent. What do I mean? Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson could mention one sexual behavior (adultery) as disqualifying someone from the “kingdom of God,” but mentioning that “other” sexual behavior? That’s a boycottin’, pardner! Likewise, there’s no shortage of articles about the perils of smoking tobacco — about how it causes lung cancer, emphysema and premature aging; about how it’s a dirty, nasty habit — all without indignant smokers crawling out of the woodwork to protest, between hacking coughs, that their passion is being unfairly demonized. But dare imply that inhaling copious amounts of marijuana smoke may not be one of Dr. Oz’s top ten health recommendations, and, well, the potheads cometh.

Forget Christie; Let’s Talk about Big Fat Traffic Jams

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 14 January 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Christie's "bridgegate" is merely the most visible example of government mismanagement when it comes to roads. Like all things government touches, its inefficiency and lust for cash has long led to traffic chaos.

Forget Christie; Let’s Talk about Big Fat Traffic Jams

One unmentioned irony of the Chris Christie road-revenge scandal is that the powers-that-be finally found a traffic jam they didn’t like. Now, don’t get me wrong, having always lived in the NY metropolitan area and often having wanted to split a vein while in the midst of the NY/NJ road experience, I think that anyone who purposely exacerbates traffic problems should be confined to a small cell and forced to listen 24/7/365 to Nancy Pelosi’s nails-on-blackboard speeches. But I have to tell you: it has always seemed that NY and NJ public officials have utter disregard — if not contempt — for drivers in their states. In fact, their policies have long had the effect of exacerbating traffic problems.

Homosexuals Gets Duck Dy-Nasty

The controversy ignited by A&E's handling of Phil Robertson demonstrates how far the radicals have gone in their effort to ban Christians and their religion from "polite" company.

Homosexuals Gets Duck Dy-Nasty

When I saw the headline yesterday about how “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson had commented on a certain sexuality-defined group, I wondered how long it would be before he got the “treatment.”

When Britain Savages Itself

Michael Savage has been invited by the Oxford Union to a debate about Edward Snowden. Too bad he can't attend, because he is still banned by the ridiculous UK government.

When Britain Savages Itself

England’s prestigious Oxford Union recently invited famed raconteur and talk-radio host Michael Savage to a debate on whether or not NSA leaker Edward Snowden is a hero. And that is certainly a matter for debate. Whatever Snowden is, though, he is definitely one thing: more noble than the British government.

White-washing Mandela’s Memory

Written by Selwyn Duke on Wednesday, 18 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

The "Great" leader once sang about "killing whites" and his political posterity is setting about what some are calling the beginning of genocide against South African whites.

White-washing Mandela’s Memory

After his mother was raped, and then murdered along with his father last year, sobbing 12-year-old Amaro was gagged and drowned in scalding bathwater. And that’s how the youngest member of the Viana family became a statistic: another in a long line of white South African victims of black violence.

Get over it: Jesus and Santa are White

Written by Selwyn Duke on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

The Left is shocked that Megyn Kelly described Jesus and Santa as "white." The question now is, why is something that has been both obvious and non-controversial for 2,000 years suddenly causing an uproar?

Get over it: Jesus and Santa are White

Some people want to give Fox News’s Megyn Kelly a lump of coal for Christmas after she remarked on Wednesday that Jesus and Santa Claus were white and that those who had a problem with it should just get over it. Well, I’m making a list and checking it twice, and I can tell you that, in this case, Kelly’s critics are naughty and Kelly is nice. 

The Road to Genocide is Paved with Liberal Intentions

Written by Selwyn Duke on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

The history of South Africa is not as simple as the "dominant narrative" portrays. Selwyn Duke looks at the somewhat more ambiguous history of the notorious nation.

The Road to Genocide is Paved with Liberal Intentions

With all the recent talk about Nelson Mandela the myth and the modicum of talk about Mandela the man, it’s a good opportunity to discuss another myth: that of apartheid. Oh, I know, modernist dogma dictates we behave not just as if the South African system Mandela so stridently fought was not only unsustainable, but also completely unfathomable. After all, the idea of second-class status for any group is anathema to Westerners (unless it happens to be non-Muslims in Islamic lands, of course).

ObamaCare Lawbreaker in Chief: Barack Obama

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 21 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Obama's decree allowing the plebs to retain their substandard health care policies for one year is nothing more than a cynical political ploy.

ObamaCare Lawbreaker in Chief: Barack Obama

“The best way to get a bad law repealed is to enforce it strictly,” said Abraham Lincoln. It’s ironic that Barack Obama has claimed to pattern himself after Lincoln, because his modus operandi is just the opposite: perpetuate a bad law by enforcing it loosely.

Black Supremacist Who Wants Whites Dead Still Employed by Obama DHS

Selwyn Duke ponders the Obama administration's unusual twist on workplace tolerance.

Black Supremacist Who Wants Whites Dead Still Employed by Obama DHS

Chalk up another victory for the post-racial president’s agenda. No, it’s not Barack Obama falsely claiming that white society denied black Hurricane Katrina victims monetary assistance. 

The Obama Purchase: Liberals Still Can’t Admit They Bought a Clunker

Written by Selwyn Duke on Wednesday, 13 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

The president, by all accounts (even his own) is intelligent. That doesn't mean that he is not dysfunctional all the same.

The Obama Purchase: Liberals Still Can’t Admit They Bought a Clunker

Many years ago I knew a couple who adopted the habit of being gratuitously defensive about one another. If you made even the slightest comment questioning one of them in the other’s presence, that party would say something such as “Watch it!” The admonition, however, would lack a certain conviction.

The Last Word on the Cuccinelli Race

Written by Selwyn Duke on Monday, 11 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

It's counterintuitive, but the way the Dems worked to split the vote in Virginia for McAuliffe actually suggests that the conservative candidates have the stronger position in upcoming elections.

The Last Word on the Cuccinelli Race

There has been much analysis of the Virginia governor’s race in which Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe edged out Republican Ken Cuccinelli by two points. Liberals have portrayed the outcome as heralding the death of the Tea Party, while conservatives have, among other things, blamed the GOP establishment for failing to provide the financial backing that could have put Cuccinelli over the top. But the truth?

Marvel Rolls out Muslim Girl Superheroine

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 07 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Marvel Comics, pandering to progressivism, probably irritating Muslims, and generally just losing its way. At least that's how it seems in the wake of its latest redesigned superhero.

Marvel Rolls out Muslim Girl Superheroine

It must be really exciting being a kid today. Denied the strength that “lies in our diversity,” youngsters languishing in the unenlightened 1960s had to content themselves with banal white male superheroes such as Superman, Spiderman and Ironman. But not only has affirmative action created a Hispanic Spiderman (perhaps a white Hispanic?); a homosexual Pink…I mean, Green Lantern; and a Batwoman reintroduced in 2006 as a lesbian (the irony is that she was originally introduced in 1956 as a romantic interest designed to dispel rumors about Batman’s homosexuality); now Marvel Comics is giving us a female Muslim superheroine. Writes The Telegraph:

There are Lies, Damned Lies and Democrats

Written by Selwyn Duke on Friday, 01 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Our government leaders now spread lies and falsehoods with wild abandon. It's a sign of the decline of our civilization.

There are Lies, Damned Lies and Democrats

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer certainly is a creative man. Asked about Barack Obama’s promise that everyone would be able to keep his health coverage if he liked it and the recent revelation that the Democrats knew all along that millions of Americans would lose their health plans under ObamaCare, he had an answer.
