American Voices: Larry Elder’s new doc, ‘Uncle Tom,’ will frighten the American left

From the Right / John Kass /

Is there anything more frightening to the American political left and their high media priests of the woke world than Black Americans who think for themselves and refuse to kneel?

No. Black people who become conservatives and dare question Democratic Party policies, from social programs to public education, are a threat to control. And so, they...Read more

Today’s cultural revolution needs a new statue. She’s French, but is she woke enough?

From the Right / John Kass /

Satire is a dangerous business, especially during our cultural revolution, with angry Jacobins beating up politicians, tearing down statues and terrifying corporate and political establishments in a great, leftist show of force.

It will never end, will it? Or maybe it just ends with heads.

At the rate they’re going, the Jacobins won’t be ...Read more

What matters more? Black children like Mekhi James or big city politics?

From the Right / John Kass /

Mekhi James, just 3 years old, is beyond the reach of your virtue signaling and your politics now.

That little boy slipped into Chicago’s never-ending river of violence as have thousands before him, a river that numbs the city even as it washes the names of the dead from common memory.

The toddler was killed in Chicago’s street gang wars, ...Read more

A warning to Trump and Republicans: Leave the nation of CHAZ/CHOP alone!

From the Right / John Kass /

To the good people of CHAZ:

Greetings and salutations, my lefty friends! I’m going help you build your experimental new revolutionary nation — now that you have your borders and armed militia — right in the middle of Seattle.

CHAZ is the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, made up of several blocks of Seattle that were commandeered by ...Read more

Politics as religion after George Floyd. This isn’t an Orwellian novel. This is your country

From the Right / John Kass /

What are you really seeing as Americans kneel, hands raised in secular prayer, repeating political creeds on the TV news? And that secular foot-washing?

You’re witness to neo-Marxist appropriation of Christian symbolism, in the aftermath of the horrifying Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd.

And now, the priests of the secularist left...Read more

Liberal governors and mayors mugged by reality in George Floyd fallout

From the Right / John Kass /

Whatever you think of President Donald Trump’s “offer” of military assistance to riot-torn American cities — and I think it would be like pouring gasoline on a fire — understand it as pressure exposing an inconvenient truth:

Liberal Democratic governors and mayors have been mugged by reality. They’re suffering from shock, as ...Read more

Joe Biden’s inconvenient Democratic truth: ‘You ain’t black’

From the Right / John Kass /

Why did Joe Biden feel the need to offer contrition after his “you ain’t black” comments directed at black voters who might dare vote for President Donald Trump?

Wasn’t he just telling the Democratic Party’s inconvenient truth on matters of race and identity politics?

The former vice president and presumptive 2020 Democratic ...Read more

Before November, America must know more about Trump-Russia probe

From the Right / John Kass /

A recent headline in The New York Times — a paper of record for the anti-Trump Resistance — was adamant:

“Barr Dismisses Trump’s Claim That Russia Inquiry Was an Obama Plot.”

Reading that, you might come away believing that Attorney General William Barr had just brushed off President Donald Trump’s much-tweeted Obamagate theory. ...Read more

End coronavirus panic porn and let's seek some balance

From the Right / John Kass /

Are we still all in this together?

It sounds like a shepherd singing to a flock while driving them to market. And that other one, the "stay safe" thing? It sounds like the bleating of sheep.

Stay safe? Are you serious?

We're reaching Great Depression levels, with 20 million jobs lost in April alone, and the unemployment rate at 14.7 percent, ...Read more

Kavanaugh-Biden double standard and lack of curiosity over Flynn make Beltway media look bad

From the Right / John Kass /

If there were ever a time that the American people needed credible national journalism, it is now, during this awful coronavirus pandemic.

But for many reasons, whatever trust the people had in news from Washington has been broken over time.

Now tens of millions of Americans are out of work, tens of thousands have died, the people are ...Read more

How the coronavirus pandemic brought one big family together

From the Right / John Kass /

The first thing you have to know about Bruce and Cheryl Leon is that their newborn grandchild is a healthy 10-pound baby boy. His mom, their daughter, is doing well.

Mazel tov!

"We won't know the name until the bris," Cheryl told me on Friday. "But it's a boy. We know that. Another boy. We're learning a lot about boys."

The other thing about ...Read more

Take tribal politics out of shutdown debate and think about the guy at the food pantry

From the Right / John Kass /

Unlike the tens of millions of Americans who have lost their jobs, America's cultural elites, in politics, government and media, are doing just fine during the coronavirus shutdown.

Some of the politicians are paid well enough to hoard gourmet chocolate ice cream in their expensive kitchen freezers, like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, rightly ...Read more

Hell freezes over in coronavirus pandemic: Washington media embraces federalism

From the Right / John Kass /

If there is one benefit from the coronavirus pandemic, it is that the establishment news media -- which is overwhelmingly liberal and loathes President Donald Trump and his more than 60 million voters with a passion -- have finally done something quite counterintuitive.

They consulted an old document they'd long forgotten: the Constitution.

A lamentation for churches closed at Easter by the coronavirus pandemic

From the Right / John Kass /

The ancient Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem was last closed during the Black Plague of the 1300s. Then came the coronavirus pandemic.

And now a video circulates across social media of the caretaker, a Muslim man whose family, it is said, has reverently tended this holiest of all Christian churches since the 1100s.

The caretaker ...Read more
