It's odd when news organizations otherwise obsessed with race issues are mysteriously quiet about alleged racial discrimination at one of America’s top universities. But ABC, NBC and CBS have given short shrift to a four-year-old lawsuit against Harvard.

“White people” are willing to use all means necessary to preserve their privilege, according to some liberals, and that includes destroying democracy.

In light of the recent accusations against Les Moonves, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver found it his duty to address workplace harassment and to help resurrect an old liberal hero. On his July 29 show, after giving his own thoughts about sexual harassment, Oliver turned to the person he said “kickstarted” the conversation about workplace harassment back in the 90s; this was none other than Anita Hill who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment after he was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1991.
Name-calling is a favorite weapon of children in grade school and the Left in politics. They both try to beat their opponents by slapping the biggest, baddest label on them that they can think of and making it stick. One of the media’s favorite labelling tactics is branding Trump supporters with that bone-chilling word: “cult.”
Racial discrimination expert and social justice knight Anne Hathaway is leading the Hollywood charge against “white privilege” in America.

Though the left defends their own when they call women “c*nts,” heaven forbid if even a liberal newspaper should call a woman “big.” Twitter and the internet have gone insane over a July 22 review written by The New York Times critic Laura Collins-Hughs about the latest Broadway production of “Smokey Joe’s Cafe,” in which she happened to mention that one of the stars, Alysha Umphress, is “bigger than the other women on stage.” This apparently qualifies as fat-shaming.
Women’s rights advocates have discovered their newest foe: sportswear companies. The Atlantic relayed this troubling news in a July 25 article.

Watch out! Climate change is not only killing polar bears; it is killing humans.

As long as they have the media on their side, comedians can actually build a career out of displays of ill-humored ridicule and provocative statements. None have embraced this so well as The Break host Michelle Wolf, who recently took aim at ICE law enforcement officials.
LGBTQ people are not just victims of political policy; they are also victims of disease. And it’s conservatives’ fault, one writer suggests.

A bunch of people in a position to know say Jim Jordan did not enable sexual harassment as a college wrestling coach, but you would hardly realize that if you follow the liberal media.

One of the left’s biggest weapons is identity politics, and the media will continually ignore facts to keep this weapon functional. This is especially true regarding Christians, whom the media label as bigots and oppressors. They can never be seen as victims and so the media report accordingly.
