Is Trump the First “European-conservative” American Presidential Candidate?

Is Trump the First “European-conservative” American Presidential Candidate?

BY SELWYN DUKE Ever since Donald Trump’s rise to 2016-contender prominence, the rap on him, and perhaps part of his broad appeal, has been that he’s not a conservative. And he’s not — he’s a nationalistic populist. Yet there’s another way to understand The Donald’s professed politics: as that of the first prominent [...]

Trump, Cruz and New York Values

Trump, Cruz and New York Values

BY SELWYN DUKE New York City values are going through the roof. And it’s not just real estate. A prime story the last many days has been the GOP debate dust-up between Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz. After the senator impugned “New York values” in an effort to call into question the businessman’s conservative bona fides, Trump [...]

“Gender-neutral” Bathrooms, the Mixed-up Kid and Homosexual Dad

“Gender-neutral” Bathrooms, the Mixed-up Kid and Homosexual Dad

BY SELWYN DUKE The big news out of San Francisco last week was that it would register another first: a city elementary school is going to switch to all “gender-neutral” bathrooms. The idea is, as the Daily Mail put it, to “accommodate young students who don’t fit into gender norms.” Of course, this apparently means that normal [...]

Surrender Like a Boy Scout

Surrender Like a Boy Scout

BY SELWYN DUKE There has been much written about the Boy Scouts of America’s recent acceptance of openly homosexual scout masters. The organization has been raked over the coals by the right and accused of offering only a half-measure by the left. But few appreciate what the BSA has actually done — and the BSA has no idea what it has done [...]

They’re Just Committing the Crimes Americans Won’t Commit

They’re Just Committing the Crimes Americans Won’t Commit

BY SELWYN DUKE With the San Francisco woman murdered by one of Barack Obama’s “new Americans,” we should ask: how much innocent blood will be spilled on the altar of the Left’s “fundamental transformation” of America? While callow and cowardly corporations are severing ties with Donald Trump because he dared speak a truth in an age [...]

Cultural Marxism

Cultural Marxism

Nobel Scientist Sacked for Making Innocent Joke about Women BY SELWYN DUKE We just heard about the Miami high-school principal fired for soberly disagreeing on social media with the McKinney narrative. Now comes an even more outrageous story involving what’s usually called political correctness, but should really be labeled what it is: [...]

Colonization and Cultural Genocide — and They Call it “Immigration”

Colonization and Cultural Genocide — and They Call it “Immigration”

BY SELWYN DUKE Have you heard about the millions of Chinese flooding into Tibet? With their displacement of the native peoples and the supplanting of Tibetan with Chinese culture, anthropologists and human rights activists have labeled the colonization “cultural genocide.” (See here, here, here, here, and here, for example.)  It is a cause [...]

God and Evil – My Answer for Michael Savage

God and Evil – My Answer for Michael Savage

BY SELWYN DUKE Torture, pain, beheadings, the murder of children…. If God exists and is all good, how could He allow such suffering and evil? This is a common question, and a lament often an impediment to faith. It also was addressed recently on the Savage Nation radio show, where host Michael Savage — exhibiting his versatility and talk [...]

Biker Shootout—Libs Go Wacko Over Race in Waco

Biker Shootout—Libs Go Wacko Over Race in Waco

BY SELWYN DUKE Leftists are upset about what they view as a double standard with respect to the Baltimore/Ferguson affair and the recent Waco gang shootout. They’re right, too — there sure is a double standard. And, as usual, it’s their own. Consider, for example, an Associated Press piece by one Jesse J. Holland titled “Differing [...]

The Real White Privilege and My Radio Race War

The Real White Privilege and My Radio Race War

BY SELWYN DUKE If you look for the worst in a group, you’re sure to find it. Using a twist on an Abraham Lincoln line, I made that statement on the Mildred Gaddis Show (Radio One Detroit WCHB AM) last Wednesday during a debate on “White Privilege: Myth or Reality.” Finding myself pitted against the other guest, whose name isn’t [...]

The Northeast Nanny-staters

The Northeast Nanny-staters

And the Blizzard that Never Was BY SELWYN DUKE Call it the Blizzard of Oz. The “Snowstorm of the Century” Monday was supposed to be historic. All we got was histrionics. It turned out that the real blustery wind was hot air — and the worst accumulation was the knee-deep nanny-state politicians who think some snow warrants a [...]

My Problem with Sarah Palin

My Problem with Sarah Palin

BY SELWYN DUKE With Sarah Palin once again hinting at a presidential run, pundits and politics wonks are all the more aflutter with 2016 talk. The predictable slings and arrows of the surly left are coming her way, while her excited fans are firing up the troops. Then there are those who say that while they like the ex-governor, they don’t [...]

The Bright Side to Amnesty

The Bright Side to Amnesty

BY SELWYN DUKE See also: Immigration and American Strength To many, the above title may seem much like speaking of the bright side to malignant cancer. And did it really come out of this writer’s pen? Long a staunch immigration critic, I’ve written many articles on the subject; Pat Buchanan used one of my lines in his book Death of the [...]

2014 Election: Blacks, Hispanics, Young and Women Still Reliably Liberal

2014 Election: Blacks, Hispanics, Young and Women Still Reliably Liberal

BY SELWYN DUKE The best predictor of future voting patterns is past voting patterns, to use a twist on a famous maxim. This is probably even truer of groups than individuals, and, despite some wishful thinking to the contrary, this election cycle was no exception. As to this, Silvio Canto at American Thinker recently asked “What Happened to [...]

It’s Official: The Democrats are the Party of the Devil

It’s Official: The Democrats are the Party of the Devil

BY SELWYN DUKE Perhaps the first clue, or the ten thousandth, was when many Democrats opposed the reinsertion of God into their party’s platform in 2012 and booed the judgment that the measure to do so had passed. But now it’s official: The Democrats are the party of the Devil. Here’s the story, courtesy of CBS Boston: Ruth [...]

Does Barack Obama Have Blood on His Hands?

Does Barack Obama Have Blood on His Hands?

BY SELWYN DUKE Little Eli Waller will never grow up to be president. The four-year-old New Jersey boy will never grow up to be anything because enterovirus D68 took his life — quite possibly because a boy who did grow up to be president, but not really a man, invited the virus into our country. How many American children have to die in [...]

The Special Treatment Homosexuals Demand

The Special Treatment Homosexuals Demand

BY SELWYN DUKE There is one particular thing that illustrates better than anything else the unreasonableness — and some would say gall — of homosexuality activists. It’s not demanding that bakers, shirt printers and wedding planners be party to events and expression deeply contrary to their principles, as offensive as that is. What I [...]

Rise of the Professional Slut

Rise of the Professional Slut

BY SELWYN DUKE “There was a time when you knew who the bad girls were,” someone close to me once said. “Now you know who the good girls are.” And I hear that all three of them are beside themselves over today’s state of affairs. “Lena Dunham: I Was Raped By a ‘Campus Republican,’” the headline reads, introducing the [...]

Liberal BBC Asks, “Is Sport Sexist?” While Promoting Inequality

Liberal BBC Asks, “Is Sport Sexist?” While Promoting Inequality

BY SELWYN DUKE It long ago became clear to me that, despite all the pretense, protesting and politicking, no one who has ever seriously thought about equality actually believes in it. When making this case, one could point to how Eric Holder’s DOJ is currently suing the Pennsylvania State Police for treating women equally (how dare they!), but [...]

If You Want to Get into a Really Big War, Elect a Liberal

If You Want to Get into a Really Big War, Elect a Liberal

BY SELWYN DUKE If I pointed out that involvement in every major 20th-century conflict the US was part of occurred on liberals’ watch, it might not be entirely fair. True, there was WWI under Wilson, WWII under FDR, Korea under Truman, and Vietnam under Kennedy and Johnson. But the second Great War needed to be fought, four conflicts aren’t [...]
