The only thing that Social Justice Warriors (SJW) and those on the active far left loathe more than an ignorant conservative is a well articulated and informed conservative. A well articulated and informed conservative baffles the left because the left is taught to believe that there are none in existence. When confronted with a conservative of this ilk the typical recourse of the left is to name-call and denigrate, which is not a change in strategy from when they interact with ignorant conservatives.
I would not consider most people part of the SJW or far left activist group. But I will say that most people in the western world are under the influence of this group and are unconsciously falling in line.

I have long been convinced by certain arguments about the hypocrisy of many big corporations (see HERE, HERE, and HERE) relating to the surge in LGBT support and a recent Financial Times article called The Business of Gay Pride has further added to my understanding of the situation. The article takes a look at how quickly the Gay Pride brand is […]
In today’s marketplace of ideas it is easy to get bogged down in the game of name-calling. The idea being that it is much easier to discount someone’s argument once their personal reputation has been soiled. Unfortunately, this seems to be “winning” strategy on all sides of the political spectrum and the election season IS its […]
A quick reference for resources on several currently divisive topics. Slavery in the U.S. Was our system founded to only support white men?

If anything, it goes to prove that, contrary to popular belief, Liberty University is diverse and open to alternative views. My wife graduated from there and I went there for two years but graduated from another college. We loved attending and have some great friends and memories from Liberty. […]
