“You are being forced to ultimately support the liberal narrative in public education,” she said of herself and other teachers.
“We are too far over the hill,” Foster said, arguing that public schools have “become indoctrination centers.”
For the last three years, I have studied how and why social media triggers and accelerates offline violence. In my research, conducted in partnership with Hartford-based peace initiative COMPASS Youth Collaborative, we interviewed dozens of young people aged 12-19 in 2018. Their responses made clear that social media is not a neutral communication platform.Read More
In a victory for free speech, the rule of law, and common sense, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit has ruled that a philosophy professor could not be forced to use a transgender student’s “preferred pronouns,” and that his suit against the university for violation of his First and 14th Amendment rights could proceed.Read More
HR 1, the so-called For the People Act, is a dangerous and radical bill.
It threatens the security, fairness, and integrity of our elections and restricts the First Amendment rights of Americans to freely engage in political speech and activity.
It would force state legislatures to hand over the redistricting process to unaccountable bureaucrats and institutionalizes racial and gender quotas.
It would also implement what amounts to a test to participate in redistricting that violates the associational and religious rights of the public.
Alexi McCammond, 27, was widely considered an up-and-coming young journalist after her time working as a political commentator for Axios news.
She had been hired as the new editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue magazine and was all set to start, before it was revealed that she had made some tweets that many considered anti-Asian and homophobic when she was 17 years old.
This wasn’t the first time the tweets had come up. In 2019, McCammond publicly acknowledged the tweets and apologized, likely hoping that the act of contrition would protect her from further reputational harm.
Her gambit failed.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be familiar with the new craze sweeping the West as the 2020s unfold, known as “cancel culture”.

The ardently pro-abortion governor of New Jersey, who last year kept liquor stores open while churches were shut down as “non-essential,” touted his supposed Catholic faith in a new push to inject the experimental Moderna mRNA vaccine “as deep into” the mostly minority community as possible.Read More
We’re only a few months beyond the turn of the calendar and already I have a candidate for the word of the year: Censorship.
Examples are proliferating at such a fast rate that it seems like a game of whac-a-mole just to keep up with all of them. A few of the most recent include:
1. Censorship of Created Equal
A popular documentary on the life of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, viewers have been able to watch Created Equal on Amazon since last October, until it was removed by the Big Tech company in February. The director of the documentary, Michael Pack, told The Wall Street Journal that they were never given a reason for the removal. “[M]any people have complained,” he told the Journal, “and they haven’t put it back up.”
The internet is a powerful tool that is used in every facet of daily life, especially as our lives have been limited during a global pandemic. Our children use the internet to attend classes when in-person learning is not an option; our businesses and consumers turned to the internet to buy and sell goods as storefronts closed and patronage was limited to prevent the spread of the highly contagious virus; we attended church services online; and some of our homes became offices with the internet allowing us to continue working remotely through the pandemic.
The reach of the internet is infinite, and we have stayed connected to friends and family during the public health crisis through online video forums and social media platforms.
