William L. Garvin: Political Correctness and National Suicide

“The goal of political correctness is rigid conformity in thought and deed. It is as if the reins of culture have been turned over to zealots who are now bullying society down the chute toward ideological purity. They are the new moralizers, and while they don’t wear clerical garb, they behave like a secular Taliban in how they condemn, mock, ridicule and shame all who challenge their orthodoxy.” – Dan Weber

Faces of Terrorism

There is an interesting confluence of forces in our culture. On one hand, we are seeing a hypersensitive percentage of our American citizenry that feels entitled to live a life free of challenges to their individual worldview or belief systems. At the same time, an increasingly permissive legal system encourages and conspires in promoting an increasingly litigious society. This combustible combination results in quasi-extortion by well funded activists and effectively resembles a planned economic assault on the rights and privileges of the majority. In effect, we have a tyranny of the minority and sometimes, an exceedingly small minority.

Depression and Obamacare

Anti-depression drugs

I was talking on the phone with a friend today and they mentioned how depressed they’ve felt with all the news about the various Obama scandals, the Immigration bill and various other things. It seems that a week doesn’t go by that we don’t get hit with more depressing news.

My question is this: If the Obama administration is willing to make the morning-after pill available to anyone, will they also push for anti-depression drugs being made available over the counter?

Second question: Would Sandra Fluke participate?

William Garvin: Perception is Not Reality

trayvon-martin-photo-media-george-zimmerman-photo-bias-sad-hill-news2

Contemporary mainstream media strikingly resembles a carnival Fun House where every mirror distorts every image. The model is predictable: liberals are lionized; Blacks are beatified; Caucasians are vilified; and conservatives are crucified. The incessant media drum beat around Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman epitomizes this. Unfortunately, it is also a sad commentary on “low information voters,” their lack of knowledge, and illogical conclusions.

Bill Whittle: The Lynching

Those of you who follow this blog know how much of a fan I am of Bill Whittle. In fact, he is one of my inspirations for my BlogTalkRadio show and the video work I’ve done. This is one of his best Afterburner segments and provides an excellent summation of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman story.

William L. Garvin: Wild Jokers Playing Race Cards

Wild Jokers

First the police in Sanford investigated the shooting and declined to make an arrest. Then the local district attorney declined to prosecute based on the evidence. Then the leviathan of government oppression arose. First, President Obama, who infamously noted the Cambridge cops “acted stupidly” when he admitted he didn’t know the facts, opined that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin. From that point forward, George Zimmerman was dealt joker after joker after joker and they were all playing the race card.

Adrienne Ross Video: Speech to Cape County GOP Women’s Club

I started a new category called “Conservative Activism” in which I’ll highlight what other people like you and I are doing in the name of conservatism.

Adrienne Ross

Adrienne is a fellow contributor to the Conservatives4Palin website and I’ve interviewed her several times on the Roderic Deane Show. I thought you’d enjoy watching this speech. It clocks in at around 45 minutes, but then again, Adrienne has never failed to engage her listeners (and mine)!

William L. Garvin: Sad But Not Surprising

There was nothing surprising when President Obama snipped that he wouldn’t scramble jets for “a twenty-nine year old hacker.” After all, he wouldn’t scramble jets when Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans were about to be murdered in Benghazi. As far as we know, the Commander in Chief was “missing in action” for nearly all the terrorist assault. When the going gets tough, some go to bed. Or they go yachting. During the Egyptian coup, John Kerry denied he was aboard his yacht but the pictures say otherwise. If you lie about the little things, you’ll lie about the big things. No wonder there is so little trust in this government.

Equally sad but not surprising is that a police chief in Mexico was killed earlier this year with one of the weapons that Eric Holder gun walked to drug cartels in his “Fast and Furious” fiasco. According to Mexican officials, over 200 other Mexican nationals have been murdered with these same weapons.
