You’ve Got to Be Taught to Love
The lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II wrote many beautiful songs for Broadway musicals. One that was not beautiful, but powerful for what it said about race relations in 1949 when the show opened was “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught.” The song was about being taught to hate. You also must be taught to love. In 2021 America, it looks increasingly like hate is winning.

We know you may not have realized this was a violation of our policies, so we're not applying a strike…

Two days before America marked the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the PBS talk show Amanpour & Co. rolled out the red carpet for leftist journalist Spencer Ackerman to promote his new book Reign of Terror: How the 9/11 Era Destabilized America and Produced Trump. The real villains in this narrative are nativist, racist right-wingers apparently running the federal…
9/11 Commemoration Canceled By High School; It Might Be Offensive
A high school in Washington state is guilty of political correctness run amok after canceling a student event to honor the victims of the 911 terror attacks on New York and the Pentagon. Eastlake High School, located in Sammamish, Wash., put the brakes on a planned tribute to the victims of the horrific terrorism that took place Sept. 11, 2001.

ABC Lets Michael Moore LIE About Bush Handling of 9/11 Aftermath
On Saturday morning's GMA, ABC's Dan Harris allowed liberal propagandist Michael Moore to sully the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by falsely claiming that the George W. Bush administration gave Osama bin Laden's family a special pass to leave the country while all other planes were barred from flying.
NBC Whines COVID Not Unifying as 9/11, Like Opposition to Civil Rights
The day after the country marked the 20th anniversary of 9/11, NBC’s Sunday Today was brazen and callous enough to complain that the fight against the coronavirus wasn’t as unifying as that tragic day was; disingenuously ignoring how they weaponized COVID coverage to attack former President Trump. They also suggested that opposition to the Biden administration’s mask and…

Michael Moore RIPPED Bush After 9/11, LOVES Biden's Afghanistan Exit
In the days after 9/11, one of the harshest critics of President Bush was, predictably radical mockumentary maker Michael Moore. Now, on the day before the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Moore gave an interview to The Hill and bizarrely praised Joe Biden's graceful exit from Afghanistan. Has he been in a cave?
Reminder: ABC Employed Radical 9/11 Truther Nut O’Donnell for Years
On the 20th anniversary of September 11th, 2001, it’s perhaps a good reminder that ABC hired, parted company with, and then rehired Rosie O’Donnell as a co-host of The View. The radical O’Donnell spewed 9/11 conspiracy theories and also trashed “radical Christianity” as more dangerous than radical Islam. ABC liked what they saw so much that they hired her twice, the first stint…
