Sunday’s New York Times featured Monica Davey reporting from the hard-left, anti-Trump “Women’s Convention” held in Detroit last weekend: “At Women’s Convention, Sustaining Momentum With Focus on Elections.” Davey managed not to notice the monolithic left-wing ideological component of the convention, featuring groups heavily funded by left-wing billionaire donor George Soros. There was not a single “left-wing” or even “liberal” label in a story about a convention featuring Rep. Maxine Waters and Muslim “feminist” Linda Sarsour, as well as the sponsors Planned Parenthood, MoveOn.org and the ACLU. Davey quoted Waters and Sarsour, but skipped the more radical and embarrassing moments from Waters and Sarsour, who made a disgusting Twitter attack on two former Muslim critics of radical Islam in 2011.



Our nation's leftist progressives have long sought to undermine the American values expressed in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Though typical Democrats and Republicans do not have this leftist hate for our nation, they have been willing accomplices in undermining the most basic value the Founding Fathers sought to promote -- limited government.



With athletes, cheerleaders and singers across the nation now commonly dissing Old Glory, The Chicago Tribune suggests it's not even appropriate for corporations to play the national anthem at sporting events. On The Town Editor Kevin Williams argues the Star Spangled Banner is getting the disrespect it deserves because it shouldn't be used at sporting events owned by private businesses.



New York Times Kansas City-based reporter John Eligon took sides on anti-police protests in St. Louis in Saturday’s investigation, “Protests Disrupt Commerce in St. Louis, and Regional Leaders Take Notice.” Eligon went to a Trump-hating pizzeria chain owner for the local angle. The reporter gushed: "The protesters have largely won the public relations battle against the police -- who have made some embarrassing missteps in their handling of the demonstrations -- and have seized the media narrative." With articles much like this one.



It was only a matter of time. A New York Times opinion piece attacked conservative opinion media outlets as prejudiced and cowardly (including a rising conservative star) while purportedly criticizing right-wing groupthink in “The Hollow Bravery of Ben Shapiro,” posted Thursday. Contributor Jane Coaston, who has recently penned liberal political essays for the New York Times Sunday magazine, smeared influential conservative writer and speaker Ben Shapiro (who has appeared in threatening environments when delivering talks on liberal college campuses) as cowardly for not challenging his fans' awful right-wing opinions. Yet Shapiro opposed Trump, which hardly ingratiates him to the people Coaston is considering.



As George Orwell said, "some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them." Many stupid ideas originate with academics on college campuses. If they remained there and didn't infect the rest of society, they might be a source of entertainment, much in the way a circus is. Let's look at a few stupid ideas peddled by intellectuals.



After hailing former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for supposedly taking a “stand” for “civil rights” by disrespecting the National Anthem, Monday’s network morning shows had the gall to attack Vice President Mike Pence for walking out of an NFL game on Sunday in protest of such player actions. All three broadcasts touted left-wing “critics” deriding the move as a “PR stunt.”



No escape from politics in the NYT: “In Deeply Conservative Texas, a Folksy Voice of Progressivism” by New York Times reporter Juliet Macur made the front page Thursday -- of the Sports section? Yep, the Times has taken ESPN’s lead and allowed liberal politics and cheerleading to infect one of the last nonpoliticized bastions of American life. Macur, a sports reporter, wrote an encomium to Texas liberal sportscaster Dale Hansen.



The proactive, preemptive violence of so-called anti-fascists, aka "antifas," has gotten very light media exposure. It's fair to say that one big reason for this is the establishment press's reluctance to recognize or even report their violent and intricately planned attacks. A months-long undercover investigation by Steven Crowder and his producer found ample evidence of antifas' premeditated determination to commit violence against those who merely express views they don't like. He also showed that local and national journalists deliberately walked away from the evidence he presented and have refused to recognize his work, even when corroborated in the presence of law enforcement authorities.



FS1's morning dumpster fire Undisputed has been a clearing house for far-left sports punditry, so it was only cemented Friday morning when co-hosts Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless shamefully ripped Green Bay Packers fans as white people more interested in “heartland patriotism” than protesting during the National Anthem.



Our college-age population consists mostly of 18- to 30-year-olds, and likewise our armed forces. I wonder whether they shared common responses to the 2016 presidential election. Many college administrators provided students with therapy dogs, play dough, coloring books, bubbles, videos of frolicking kittens and puppies, and soft music. They even canceled classes and postponed exams so that their 18- to 30-year-old snowflakes could better cope with the election results.
