JONAH GOLDBERG 'They do that because they were born that way." If you say that about homosexuals, you are tolerant and realistic. If you say it about blacks, you are racist (unless you're black yourself). If you say it about women, you may or may not be sexist, depending on who is manning (er, womanning) the feminist battle stations. If you say it about men, you just might be a writer for Esquire. But if you say it about conservatives, you're a scientist.... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Two stories this week illustrate how the Maoist concept of "political correctness" has become so pervasive and insidious in American society that truth and accurate reporting have become the victims. As WND reported Tuesday, dozens of black teenagers attacked two white reporters for the local Norfolk, Va., newspaper, the Virginia-Pilot. Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami were stopped at a traffic light two weeks ago as a crowd of at least 100 black youths congregated nearby... (more)

MAGGIE GALLAGHER A few years ago, beauty queen Carrie Prejean innocently answered a question about gay marriage with a polite "no." She was viciously personally attacked by Miss USA pageant judge Perez Hilton, who posted a video of himself cursing at her. Prejean was eventually stripped of her crown, and as for Perez Hilton? "I'd love to have him back," pageant owner Donald Trump once said. "I mean, I'd love to have him back" -- although he didn't actually do it... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY A few years back, I wrote a book called "Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad." It was about being on the "front lines," so to speak, of the battle against Muslim terrorism. I put "front lines" in quotes because, though the terrorists saw themselves as fighting a doctrinally ordained war of armed combat, we were treating them as mere criminals -- such that our idea of a battlefield was the federal courthouse, and our idea of a commander was, well . . . me...

ALAN KEYES A significant number of America's voters still believe in government of, by, and for the people. They still believe in the moral premises the American people first articulated in order to justify and explain their decision to separate and withdraw themselves from the dominion of the British monarch. Standing, as it were, before God and all humanity, they made plain "the causes which impel them to the separation"... (more)
