Cancel the National Anthem Because It's Hard to Sing and Racist

Cancel the National Anthem Because It's Hard to Sing and Racist

There’s nothing new about wanting to replace the national anthem. Since it achieved unofficial status as the country’s anthem in the early 19th century, people have been picking on “The Star-Spangled Banner” for a variety of reasons.It’s too hard to sing, is one of the major complaints. Indeed, anyone who hears the latest pop star butchering the tune knows that it’s damn near impossible to sing. That’s because it was never meant to be sung at all. It was a poem, not a musical composition.The music was written by English composer John Stafford Smith and Francis Scott Key’s poem was set to...

The Shameless Gaslighting by Andrew Cuomo’s Defenders | National Review

The Shameless Gaslighting by Andrew Cuomo’s Defenders | National Review

March 25, New York governor Andrew Cuomo made one of deadliest mistakes of the coronavirus crisis, signing an executive order nursing homes in his state to accept patients who tested positive for coronavirus. Around 4,800 New Yorkers died from COVID-19 in those nursing homes from March to May — approximately 25 percent of all fatalities in the state.Many medical professionals opposed the policy. A report by ProPublica, certainly no right-wing outlet, that deaths had spiked after Cuomo’s order. States issuing similar policies — Michigan and New Jersey — saw similar disasters unfold.By any...

Jews fight back against the anti-Semitic hashtag #JewishPrivilege, with ironic tweets about the ‘privilege’ of being targeted by bullies, Nazis and white supremacists

Sammie Marks recalls the time when she was asked whether Jews really have horns on their heads. This was about 10 years ago, she said, in relatively liberal Iowa City. “It was one of those things (when) you just stop in your tracks and think, ‘How in the world do I respond to this in a productive way?‘” she said. Advertisement Such memories surfaced Sunday, when Twitter users took on the anti-Semitic hashtag #JewishPrivilege, a variation on the old smear that Jews are somehow controlling money and politics, and that everyone else is suffering as a result. Jews and allies retweeted the...

How to Debate Libertarians on Taxes — And Destroy Them

Our new issue – looking at what the Bernie campaigns accomplished and the work left to do – is out next month. !Thanks to the three-month extension caused by the pandemic, Tax Day this year falls immediately after Bastille Day. Libertarians might see a cruel irony there.The slogans of the French Revolution were “liberty,” “equality,” and “fraternity.” Most libertarians concede the need for a stripped-down state that enforces a contract and provides for national defense that is morally acceptable, but they see redistributive taxation as an unacceptable violation of liberty in the name of...

Kruggel had signed up for a phone-banking shift with the grassroots group Citizen Action of Wisconsin, and L.’s was the next name on his list.The call began on an awkward note. When Kruggel asked to speak with L., a name more common to women than men, the reply was curt: “You’re talking to him.”...
