Please see 'Uncle Tom', the new movie I executive produced

From the Right / Larry Elder /

June 19 is the premiere of "Uncle Tom," a documentary on which I am the executive producer. Through interviews with black conservatives, some well-known and some not, the film asks a simple question: Why are independent-thinking blacks, who believe in limited government and personal responsibility, denounced as "sellouts" and "coons" and "Uncle ...Read more

From the Right / Larry Elder /

In February, a black man named Ahmaud Arbery was shot and killed in Brunswick, Georgia. Cue the "this regularly happens to black men in America" hysteria.

From the Right / Larry Elder /

As of this writing, more than 80,000 Americans have contracted and died from the coronavirus. But how many have or will die from what some call "despair"?

Consider the following call to my radio show:

"Hi, Larry. I was calling about people who have called suicide hotlines and different things with this loss of income. I am a widow of somebody ...Read more

Sweden: Coronavirus and the concept of 'trade-offs'

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Sweden, unlike its Scandinavian neighbors, made different decisions to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. It issued no mandatory orders. It did not require its citizens to shelter at home. True, as of May 4, more Swedes had contracted and died from the coronavirus (2,679 total deaths, a rate of 263.08 per 1 million people) than people in Norway...Read more

Coronavirus pandemic plus 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' equals bad math

What happens when Trump Derangement Syndrome meets bad math?

The President Donald Trump-hating comedian Bill Maher, in 2018, openly rooted for a recession, if its price meant the defeat of Trump in 2020. Maher said: "By the way, I'm hoping for it because one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. ... ...Read more

The origin of the coronavirus: From right-wing conspiracy theory to plausible

From the Right / Larry Elder /

In February the Daily Kos, an influential left-wing website, denounced "a whole parade of right-wing hand-waving that includes not just Republican Rep. Tom Cotton claiming that COVID-19 was cooked up in a Chinese bio lab." Likewise, The Guardian reported that Dr. Peter Daszak, the president of EcoHealth Alliance in the United States, an ...Read more

I get hate mail from black people

From the Right / Larry Elder /

CNN host Chris Cuomo recently complained about his job. "I don't like what I do," he said. It seems that Cuomo, out in public, gets some negative feedback: "I don't want some jackass, loser, fat-tire biker being able to pull over and get in my face and in my space and talk bulls--t to me. I don't want to hear it." Cuomo complained that as "a ...Read more

The coronavirus: Trump's medical advice was contradictory, inconsistent -- and wrong

From the Right / Larry Elder /

For three years, critics of President Donald Trump have claimed that he arrogantly refuses to listen to his experts and that his exaggerated sense of self prevents him from accepting his limitations.

The coronavirus: What would Joe Biden do?

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Many Democrats and much of the media claim that President Donald Trump has mishandled and continues to mishandle the response to the coronavirus pandemic.

A rapper who benefited from school choice denounces a president who supports it

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Rapper and actor O'Shea Jackson, commonly known as Ice Cube, supported President Donald Trump's impeachment and removal from office. Cube recently said he "can't wait to see" Trump in handcuffs. So, the black rapper, who became rich and famous by attacking the country's "racist" criminal justice system, now cheers on criminal justice -- at least...Read more

Liberal media ignores Biden's many lies

From the Right / Larry Elder /

The fact that former Vice President Joe Biden, now on his third try for the presidency, remains the last "moderate" standing says more about his now-vanquished rivals than about Biden. The same media that post running tabs on President Donald Trump's "lies" ignore, downplay or otherwise dismiss Biden's gaffes, memory lapses and frequent ...Read more

Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. a victim Hollywood's hostility toward Republicans

From the Right / Larry Elder /

In 2016, I was in the greenroom for a Fox News segment, where I met a charismatic actor named Antonio Sabato Jr. I had never heard of him.

He called himself a "Christian conservative" and said that he recently came out in favor of presidential candidate Donald Trump and planned to...Read more

Hollywood in the Trump Era: Conservatives not welcome

From the Right / Larry Elder /

Hollywood is one leg of the Axis of Indoctrination, with media and academia completing the trifecta.

There are some outspoken nonliberals in Hollywood. Self-described "libertarian" Clint Eastwood comes to mind. But the list is short. A month before the 2016 election, I met a young actress at a party. She just arrived in Los Angeles from ...Read more
