Razing Arizona: Conservatives Succeed at Failing Again

Written by Selwyn Duke on Friday, 28 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

The progressives have stepped up their totalitarian campaign against freedom of association as evidenced by the veto of SB 1062 by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.

Razing Arizona: Conservatives Succeed at Failing Again

Perhaps Arizona governor Jan Brewer was sincere when saying that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (SB 1062) she vetoed yesterday could “create more problems than it purports to solve.” After all, observers such as Napp Nazworth at The Christian Post contend that SB 1062 might actually — contrary to all the hysteria — have made it harder for most business owners to refuse service to homosexuals. This analysis may have merit and can be read here, but it’s irrelevant to a larger point:

Why Obama is Uneducated

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 27 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Our republic is now infested with millions of fiction voters who elected a fiction president based on fairy-tale promises. And it’s looking less and less like our story ends with “happily ever after.”

Why Obama is Uneducated

A few years ago I participated in a radio debate on “white privilege” with a certain man, whose name is unimportant, who had a Ph.D. in “ethnic studies.” At one point he introduced an argument by saying, “If whites are 80 percent of the population…,” which prompted me to interject and point out that whites (non-Hispanic) are now only 63 percent of America. Of course, you might think that someone with a doctorate in “ethnic studies” would know what the ethnic and racial composition of the country is.

Suing Americans under International Law — in American Courts

Written by Selwyn Duke on Saturday, 22 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Americans can conceivably be punished under legislation that they had not even an indirect hand in creating.

Suing Americans under International Law — in American Courts

Imagine you go overseas and give a speech advocating a cause, only to come home and find you’re being sued for “crimes against humanity.” No, what you did wasn’t illegal under American law or under the laws of the nation in which you expressed your words. 

Immigration and National Survival

Written by Selwyn Duke on Friday, 14 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

We have a civilization here, now, today, and the question is always the same: is it worth preserving?

Immigration and National Survival

When pondering our obsession with immigration, I’m reminded of how people in the ridiculous dystopian film Idiocracy were watering their crops with an energy drink called Brawndo. And even though the crops weren’t growing, the suggestion to try water instead was met with the following conditioned response in the drink’s defense: “It’s got what plants crave! It’s got electrolytes!” No one knew what electrolytes were. No one could explain why they were in Brawndo. It was all sloganeering.

America Has Lost Her Will to Live

Written by Selwyn Duke on Friday, 07 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

We’ve forgotten that robust, healthy America was a result of a specific recipe, and we cannot perpetuate that republic unless we remember the recipe.

America Has Lost Her Will to Live

Perhaps we should have chosen the turkey as our national bird, as Benjamin Franklin suggested. It would certainly be more appropriate for our times. But if any flying creature would do, a moth might be more fitting still — with political correctness playing the role of that devilishly irresistible flame.

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

Written by Selwyn Duke on Wednesday, 15 January 2014. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

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

Written by Selwyn Duke on Friday, 20 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

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

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 19 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

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.
