posted by Jack Kerwick

As the nation remembers Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, it should also note that while the self-appointed guardians of King’s legacy, the “anti-racists,” obsess over Paula Deen and liken Trayvon Martin to Emmet Till, they say nothing […]

Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Fundamental Transformation of America

posted by Jack Kerwick

On this 50th anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech, even the self-avowed apostles of “individualism,” “liberty,” and “limited government”—i.e. “conservatives”—can’t resist lavishing endless praise upon its author, Martin Luther King, Jr. As uncomfortable as it makes these declared […]

Below is a select list of interracial atrocities committed by black perpetrators and white victims. Many more could be added to it.  The reader should note that the very same “anti-racists” who demanded Paula Deen’s head on a platter have […]

Conservatives and Libertarians Shouldn’t Vote Republican: My Response to Criticisms

posted by Jack Kerwick

Last week, I wrote an article in which I argued that unless the Republican Party begins to take stock of the ever growing discontent among its conservative base, it will, deservedly, be a loser in perpetuity. Among the overwhelmingly positive […]

Oprah and Five Racial Double Standards

posted by Jack Kerwick

In Florida, a 13 year-old white boy is savagely beaten on a school bus by three black thugs.  Yet it gains not a fraction of the attention paid by the press of the whole Western world to Oprah Winfrey’s claims […]

Conservative Voters vs. The GOP

posted by Jack Kerwick

George W. Bush left the White House with an approval rating hovering around 30%.  Courtesy of his tenure, and his second term specifically, by 2008 large numbers of conservatives ceased to identify themselves as “Republican,” such was their shame.  At […]

Who is a “Racist?” Food for Thought that We’ve Never Tried

posted by Jack Kerwick

If, as Eric Holder claims to want, we have ourselves an honest discussion of race, then we should determine, or at least try to determine, what it means for one to be a “racist.” Is a “racist” one who has […]

The Tragic Fate of Kristen Huggins: The Case that Al Sharpton Ignored When He Came to Trenton, NJ

posted by Jack Kerwick

Whatever respectability Al Sharpton is thought to have achieved in recent years, some of us know all too well that he is the same demagogic agent of the Racism-Industrial-Complex (RIC) that he has always been. Some instances of Sharpton’s, and […]

Philadelphia Eagles’ star Riley Cooper is the latest celebrity to have to issue an emotional, and very public, mea culpa for having used that most infamous of racial slurs, “the N-word.” Fortunately for him, it appears that Cooper has been […]

Why Romney Lost: A Response to WaPo’s Dan Balz

posted by Jack Kerwick

In his latest book, Collision 2012, Dan Balz, a Washington Post writer, expresses his incredulity over “the inability” of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign to “humanize” its candidate. This is one reason why, in Balz’s estimation, Romney lost the 2012 election […]

Pundits and Misology (The Hatred of Reason)

posted by Jack Kerwick

It is becoming painfully clear to me that, while there is doubtless no short supply of reasonably intelligent pundits on the political horizon, very few of them know how to think.  Or, if they do know how to think, they […]

The Wichita Massacre and Racial Double Standards

posted by Jack Kerwick

If the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case demonstrated anything, it is the gross, and grotesque, double standards in race relations that exist in America. A few weeks ago, I published a piece at Front Page Magazine, “Paula Deen and the Fundamental […]
