Politically incorrect leads in the polls

Not a fan of Donald Trump but give him credit for blowing the politically correct carbon out of the carburetors so America can talk openly about its problems. Ben Carson, too.

Daniel Henninger in “Revolt of the politically incorrect” writes: “A lot of the public has been intimidated into keeping its mouth shut and head down about subjects in the political and social life of the country that the elites stipulated as beyond discussion or dispute. … Political correctness is … Americanized Maoism.”

As if to prove the point, Paul Fanlund at the Corporation that Speaks in the Progressive Voice (and thinks in the past tense) plays the race card yet again, even as he contends that the reaction to PC is “a GOP smokescreen.”

“When criticized for their toxic racism and sexism, they complain that their critics are just being politically correct,” PC Paul writes. No need to qualify with the word “alleged.”

At the CT, it’s bedrock PC to charge GOP racism. Everett Mitchell’s critics? Racists. (“The racist backlash against Everett Mitchell.”) President Obama? Only a racist would criticize. The Progressive Voice was silent during the infamous speech codes at the UW in the 1990s. It remains mute and therefore complicit in the anti-intellectual calls today for “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” at universities from Missouri to Madison. Where there’s smoke, there is fire.

Questions they ask at The Nation:

“Can a socialist feminist vote for Hillary? Socialist feminism assumes that redistribution is the best way to begin improving life for the vast majority of women.” That’s an actual question from the current Nation.

Speaking of redistribution, here’s another of its progressive gems: “Can I steal from chain stores to feed myself?”

That’s an affirmative if you ask future Dane County judge Everett Mitchell.

"Not a fan of Donald Trump, but..."

Can we make that the official subtitle of Blaska's column? "I disagree with the Oregon separatist ranchers, but..."

Mexicans are raping our women... good on the Trump for taking a brave stand there! Join me in making fun of that physically handicapped reporter who dared to ask me a tough question. What a way to cut straight through the bull! Who's the dumbest kid in this 5th grade class? You just keep on telling it like it is, Ben Carson!

In case you were sleeping since 2011, the DNR is now the Chamber of Commerce.

When, O when is Bernie Sanders place the blame for gun violence where it belongs?
Global warming, of course.
Same as it causes gun violence in the Middle East.
But only if you're Islamic, apparently.

Progressives don't like arguments based on, you know, facts!
