Why Millennials Won’t Turn “Conservative”

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

Some harbor hopes that the younger generations will come around and embrace traditionalism. Given the depth of the decay of our culture, that's little more than very wishful thinking.

Why Millennials Won’t Turn “Conservative”

Every so often the wonks of wishful thinking give us an article about how blacks are becoming Republicans, how Hispanics are supposedly a natural GOP constituency, or, as is the subject here today, how the millennial generation is turning “conservative.” Perhaps pundits asserting the last thing recall Winston Churchill’s observation, “If you're not a liberal at 20, you have no heart; if you're not a conservative at 40, you have no brain.” And perhaps they overlook that it’s possible to raise a brainless generation.

The Babe and the Cynic

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 13 August 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

The irony of cynicism is that while it is the belief that all people act out of selfish motives, it is motivated by a desire to protect the self.

The Babe and the Cynic

A certain very erudite and always entertaining social critic remarked recently that he always thought the worst of people. He went on to say — perhaps, at most, half jokingly — that he was always right about them, too. He then revealed that he actually had been very trusting as a boy, that he believed everyone and often got taken advantage of. He certainly doesn’t get taken advantage of much now, I’m sure. But what he doesn’t know is that in one significant way he hasn’t changed at all.

The Post-racial President’s Profiling: DWW (Defending While White)

Written by Selwyn Duke on Friday, 26 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

The disparate handling of two remarkably similar cases of manslaughter demonstrate that in America the media and the political class have a dangerous double standard when it comes to racial issues.

The Post-racial President’s Profiling: DWW (Defending While White)

What would it have taken for the jury that acquitted George Zimmerman to find him guilty? Well, try this on for size: imagine that instead of emerging from his encounter with Trayvon Martin bloodied with a broken nose, he didn’t have a scratch on him. Imagine he had also admitted he confronted Martin with gun drawn and hadn’t actually been attacked — but had shot Martin simply because the teen was running at him. Lastly, imagine Zimmerman was built like a brick outhouse, had trained in a few martial arts and even competed in martial-arts tournaments. Is it conceivable there could have been an acquittal?

Obama’s Dangerous Racial Hang-ups

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 25 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Is profiling bad? When a woman looks suspiciously at the man walking behind her, has she made a moral error in judging him a threat? Could it be that everyone does it and that it's normal? Selwyn Duke interrogates the conceit that profiling is always bad.

Obama’s Dangerous Racial Hang-ups

When Barack Obama said that if he had a son, “he’d look like Trayvon,” it perhaps didn’t say much for him as a parent. And when the president now says that Martin could have been him “35 years ago,” it doesn’t say much for him as a youth. Of course, we know that Choom Gang Obama smoked marijuana like Martin. I wonder, though, did he miss 53 out of 90 days of school and get suspended 3 times during that period? Was he caught with ladies jewelry, a “burglary tool” and drug paraphernalia in school? Did he enjoy fighting and, when a girlfriend implored him to beat his sword into ploughshares, say that he was going to fight another boy again because “he didn’t bleed enough for me”? Most significantly, would Obama have attacked George Zimmerman, broken his nose and pounded his head against the pavement? It seems the president is implying he was a thug.

Total Recall: Why Recall Elections are a Must

Written by Selwyn Duke on Wednesday, 24 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

If politicians knew that breaking an election promise or stabbing good Americans in the back would result in an immediate recall effort, they’d be more likely to mind their p’s and q’s.

Total Recall: Why Recall Elections are a Must

Should recall elections be reserved only for politicians who break the law? Columnist Rick Moran thinks so. Opining on an impending recall election in Colorado, he writes:

Holder and Zimmerman: Will Blackness Trump Fairness?

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 18 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

At the DOJ under Eric Holder, an inquiry into George Zimmerman is underway. But legitimate questions have been raised about the Attorney General's impartiality in this case.

Holder and Zimmerman: Will Blackness Trump Fairness?

While George Zimmerman has been acquitted, his troubles are hardly behind him. It’s not just that no small number of thugs want his head on a platter, but that the baddest of them all is the highest law-enforcement official in the land.

Women vs. Men: Who Governs Better?

Written by Selwyn Duke on Monday, 15 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Are women really better at everything than men? The feminists answer yes, and most "liberals" agree. But just because a majority of low-information partisans agree on something, doesn't make it true.

Women vs. Men: Who Governs Better?

Every so often there’s that obligatory article asking “Are Women Superior at_____?” or “Do Women Make Better ______?” with politicians often being the focus. Of course, it’s always asked rhetorically. No matter the facts of the case, you’ll never hear, “We examined the issue exhaustively from all perspectives, consulted with premier authorities in the discipline, collated the data and have determined that in this endeavor, women, to employ the official nomenclature, really suck.” In fact, I haven’t heard any kind of dismissal of feminine abilities in any area — of the kind routinely made with men — since a 1993 Golf Magazine piece titled “Women can’t chip.”

Obama: Forcing Christians to Eat the Pork

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 11 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Obama and his minions have become King Antiochus. They have served notice that not only won’t they try to get along with Christians, they’ll do everything they can to not get along with them.

Obama: Forcing Christians to Eat the Pork

While Barack Obama has often been compared to leaders of the past, it’s unlikely anyone has yet associated him with Antiochus IV Epiphanes. Ruler of the Seleucid Empire between 175 and 164 B.C., King Antiochus is best known for the persecution of Jews, and one story from the second book of Maccabees is particularly relevant here. As the passage tells us, the king was bent on forcing a Jewish woman and her seven sons to, of all things, eat pork. The boys resisted and were tortured and killed one by one as their mother, who ultimately was also murdered, looked on. What’s interesting, though, is that while the victims were being faithful to what they believed was divine dietary injunction, there was no Seleucid commandment stating “Thou shalt compel others to dine on swine.” The act of eating such meat was but a trivial matter to Antiochus, yet he nonetheless insisted on imposing his will.

Trayvon, Rachel and White Privilege

Written by Selwyn Duke on Wednesday, 03 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

On the political left, a particularly vicious assumption is that white people can't understand black people. This assumption is used to silence debate.

Trayvon, Rachel and White Privilege

Perhaps I’m just a creepy-a** cracka’ who doesn’t get it. But it always seems that when it comes to standards, the left gives you two for the price of one. And the idea that white people “can’t” understand black folks — a similar point to which was made in a recent article about the George Zimmerman trial — is a good example.

Treasonous Immigrationists and the Death of America

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 02 July 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

When worlds collide, when there is an incongruence of cultural elements, there may be mixing as with the wolf and coyote. Or there may be an extinction, as the Dodo bird found out.

Treasonous Immigrationists and the Death of America

Let’s do a little thought exercise here. Imagine that some force was flooding an indigenous people’s lands with millions of unassimilable foreigners, and it was understood that this influx would irretrievably change that land’s culture and replace the population. What would anthropologists call this phenomenon? Cultural genocide comes to mind.

Socially Engineering Racial Conflict

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 27 June 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Conservatives need to stop conserving liberals’ decades-old social victories, and this includes those in the linguistic realm.

Socially Engineering Racial Conflict

Addressing a large panel of black conservatives on Hannity last night, host Sean Hannity asked whether “African-American” was the correct label for black people. Thankfully, a vast majority of the panelists quite passionately agreed it was not, mainly making the point that we shouldn’t hyphenate ourselves. This is true, but it still doesn’t get at the heart of the matter.

Where Serena Williams is Right about Rape

Written by Selwyn Duke on Tuesday, 25 June 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Political correctness Nazis have attacked tennis champ Serena Williams for her opinion about rape. Despite their anti-free speech outrage, maybe she had a point.

Where Serena Williams is Right about Rape

If you want to know why lies seem increasingly common, it’s because we persecute people for honesty. 

Why Liberals Kill

Written by Selwyn Duke on Monday, 24 June 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

So-called "liberals" appear to be thorough-going hypocrites. In fact, they really are consistent. Without fail, they follow their emotions. Their credo is, "if it feels good, do it."

Why Liberals Kill

"Liberal institutions straightaway cease from being liberal the moment they are soundly established: once this is attained no more grievous and more thorough enemies of freedom exist than liberal institutions." This quotation’s author, Friedrich Nietzsche, was no traditionalist himself; in fact, he was a harsh critic of Christianity who coined the phrase “God is dead.” Yet he knew that your republic would be dead the day liberals assumed enough power within it.

The Bright Side of Amnesty

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 20 June 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

When it comes to immigration, both legal and illegal, U.S. policy has been inept at best. Now crisis is upon us and all options appear bad. Yet, like the scandals that have emanated form the Obama camp, this may finally goad complacent voters into action.

The Bright Side of Amnesty

Saying there’s a bright side to amnesty may seem much like talk of the advantages of malignant cancer. But this won’t be a pie-in-the-sky article about the “economic benefits” of new workers, expanding the tax base or the wonders of “diversity.” There is no Ayotte-Rubio flip-flop here; in fact, for those who don’t know me, I’ve long called for a halt to even legal immigration. And understanding why is necessary to put amnesty’s “bright side” in perspective.  

ESPN’s Random Act of Feminism?

Written by Selwyn Duke on Thursday, 20 June 2013. Posted in Opinion, Selwyn Duke

Staffers at ESPN appear to have eaten the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and liberalism, and thus they slipped a radical feminist lie into a broadcast on golf. It's one more example of how we now live in a world of universal deceit.

ESPN’s Random Act of Feminism?

It’s really hard to know today where the stupidity ends and the propaganda begins. MSNBC recently made news by labeling infamous segregationist George Wallace a Republican during a recent television broadcast. Now ESPN has followed suit, with a random act of feminism.
