Wakanda Forever!

in Culture/Politics by

Marvel’s Black Panther is smashing box office records left and right, due in no small part to the mainstream media’s dogmatic marketing campaign, while triggering strong emotions left and right, if you catch my drift. There has been much talk of the politics of this movie and yet they cannot be overstated. Set in an “Afro-futurist” world unencumbered by white influence or oppression, but somehow light-years ahead of the Western world in technology and sophistication, the isolationist nation of Wakanda is led by King T’Challa, also known as the Black Panther. It exists beyond an invisible barrier or wall separating…

Student Loans – A Generational Disaster

in Culture/Economics by

One of the biggest generational differences which causes a disconnect between baby boomers and millennials is student debt. Many baby boomers are confused why college graduates don’t immediately move out of their parents’ house like baby boomers did. The issue is that once a student graduates, they become debtors. It’s a vicious cycle which turns compound returns against borrowers. For example, say you graduate with $40,000 in debt and you owe a 4% interest rate for 15 years. While the federal government expects the loans to be paid back in 10 years, it takes the average Wisconsin graduate 19.7 years…

Profit And Pleasure: The Tragedy Of Human Trafficking And The Power Of Pornography

in Culture/Politics by

It was a small solemn room in which many were seated with serious expressions. Around me sat clergy of many faiths, from Nuns to Coptics to Evangelicals. All gathered to hear a panel at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference in DC centered around on a little recognized epidemic. The daunting discussion was on the Human Sex Trafficking of young women, girls and boys across the United States and the world, paramount to a new sexual slave trade ensnaring millions. The stories shared brought shock or sadness to some and seething anger to others. A Coptic Orthodox Priest with a…

Annihilation Movie Review: Has The Left Officially Ruined Science Fiction?

in Culture/Politics by

Believe me: I’d love to write a movie review of director Alex Garland’s brand-new sci-fi flick Annihilation where I could address its retro-futuristic score, kaleidoscopic graphics, and thought-provoking ideas – but instead of judging the film based on its artistic merits, I’m forced to take a skeptical look at its politics. Alex Garland had shown himself to be something of an ‘indie’ director with his debut film Ex Machina (2015), which was well-received by critics for its exploration of the subject of artificial intelligence. So I wasn’t expecting a radical departure from his independent cast of thought and an excessive…

Making Of a Tragedy: The Cowards Of Broward County

in Culture/Politics by

In the wake of all mass shootings, the predictable exhortation from the conservative corner of our national discourse is to wait before injecting politics into the discussion. It’s out of respect for the dead, it’s an instinct to not use these tragic victims as political footballs. This isn’t a competition between dueling ideologies. The Left has no such qualms about instantly leaping to their emotionally charged conclusions and maybe they have a point. Maybe it’s more disrespectful to the victims to not politicize their untimely deaths. Maybe the most respectful thing we could do is to leap directly into action.…

The Leftist War On Meat

in Culture by

Plant-based diets, especially vegan diets, seem to be all the rage these days. Based on the practice of eschewing animal products, veganism has attracted a broad coalition of interest groups — ranging from animal rights to environmental activists — who believe that veganism is the most ethical and sustainable way of promoting human health and animal welfare. At first, these appear to be reasonable premises for an alternative lifestyle that challenges the dietary status quo. But when placed under the microscope, the modern vegan movement has shown signs of increased politicization and a tendency to mesh with socialist causes.

Why The Media Just Can’t Handle Jordan Peterson

in Culture by

Watching the mainstream press try to interview University of Toronto Professor Jordan Peterson, one thing becomes exceedingly clear: they literally can’t even. While the above expression makes my inner grammar Nazi cry, it is possibly the best description of the predictable sequence of befuddled expressions, desperate strawmen, and whiffed shots fired at Peterson from a growing list of increasingly cautious media personalities. Cathy Newman’s interrogation of the professor has garnered over five million views, and if one were to judge its contents solely on the consequent collection of memes, pundit reactions, and response/splice videos, one would conclude that Dr. Peterson spent 30 minutes deriding and…

Toxic Masculinity, 1920s-Style

in Culture/History by

A recent headline at Politico begins, “Don’t Blame Mental Illness for Mass Shootings; Blame Men.” To be fair to the author, Laura Kiesel, she probably didn’t choose that title. And to be doubly fair, she doesn’t blame men in general for mass shooting. She does — correctly — point out that the overwhelming majority of people who shoot other people are men.  These nuances, however, have done little to shield Kiesel from what was probably the expected response. “Politico Blames Masculinity for Mass Shootings. Here’s Why That’s Ridiculous,” an article in The Federalist fires back. Many other responses were less polite. When it comes to mass…

Marxism: The Unwavering, Cancerous Assault On Life, Liberty, And Individualism

in Culture/Philosophy by

Marxism is a cancer that has plagued societies across the globe in one form or another for well over a century, leaving behind a trail of death, destruction, and misery in the most appalling ways imaginable. The tyrants of the 20th century – Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Che, and Castro among others – settled once and for all what happens when the Marxist ideology is unleashed upon the world. Rather than usher in the promised utopia, what occurred was nothing short of hell on earth. Sadly, we were wrong to think that this cancer had been eradicated. Instead,…

Trump Towers Over Mainstream Media Monkeys

in Culture/Politics by

Much to the chagrin of the mental midgets in the mainstream media, former president Barack Hussein Obama appointee Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, has given President Trump a clean bill of health. More important than his physical fitness is President Trump’s mental acuity which was also noted by Admiral Jackson. For the record, that’s one more churlish liberal narrative obliterated. Our president is not an imbecile and he’s not crazy. He’s large and incharge and crushing everything he lands on. Tax reform was, is, and will for the foreseeable future be, a huge deal. It’s a feather in a cap already…

The Other One Drop Rule

in Culture/History by

Seeing as historical racism and historical guilt/corruption of blood are apparently all the rage of discussion nowadays, I feel it is time once again to discuss the complexities of historical racism and reveal that things were never quite as simple as they’re assumed to be. A smug talking point that Europeans will never cease to hold over the heads of Americans is that not only are Americans more racist than Europeans now, not only have Americans always been racist, but Europeans were supremely enlightened and tolerant even in the past. In other words, even while Americans were busy lynching and…

Feminist Rewriting Of Morality: Abortion Is Empowerment

in Culture/Politics by

In the 1993 film ‘Schindler’s List’, directed by Steven Spielberg, there’s a scene where the main character Oskar Schindler (played by Lian Neeson) is speaking with Nazi soldier Amon Goeth (played by Ralph Fiennes). Schindler explains what real power means. His explanation is simple. Real power is when justice is deserved for an offender. However, instead of punishment, the judge pardons them.  Goeth is an evil Nazi soldier who hates the Jewish people. The movie depicts scenes where he’s standing on a balcony overlooking a concentration camp holding a rifle, shooting and killing Jewish prisoners as target practice. Within his…

False Allegations And The Case For Reciprocal Punishments

in Culture/Politics by

Following the Harvy Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal, it was apparent our nation has a problem. For decades many accusations were swept under the rug and payouts made to keep victims quiet. All of it done to protect the reputations of industries and companies. One might say the pot finally reached its boiling point and now America’s faced with a massive overflow of accusations and terminations. While the number of firings has subsided, this recent #MeToo movement has brought to light the problems many women faced in the workplace. It’s likely companies and industries are frantically reviewing sexual harassment and misconduct policies…

The Realness Of Hate Hoaxes

in Culture by

So if you’ve been paying attention to the news recently, you’ll remember that last month the air force academy recently had a hoax incident in which a black cadet forged racist graffiti that was allegedly threatening him, only for it to be revealed that he himself had painted said racist graffiti. Surprisingly, Lieutenant General Silveria (the officer who first publicized the incident and took every opportunity to lecture the United States about its still lingering wounds of racism and how racist racism is America’s original sin) has remained committed to the narrative despite its collapse. Silveria will not only not repent, but neither will…

Lara Witt Would Be a Terrible First Date

in Culture by

Lara Witt is the managing editor of Wear Your Voice and despite being a solid seven and a half on the unofficial 1-10 scale of female hotness, she’s a waste of natural talent. She’s not a bad writer but she embodies the famous Reagan quote about how liberals aren’t ignorant, they just know so much that isn’t true. A friend recently made me aware of an article she wrote for WYV called, “10 Things Every Intersectional Feminist Should Ask on a First Date.” My friend asked me to read it and write a response to it. Here goes. First, intersectionality…

How A Suicide Can Turn The Left Against Themselves

in Culture by

For as long as the modern-day feminist movement has existed, supporters have been pushing the notion that a woman has complete autonomy over her own body. Without a doubt, a majority of Americans likely agree with this notion, much like we all agree the sky is blue. Thus it is fair to say that these feminists have offered nothing new to basic human understanding. Where this view tends to be controversial is when it is applied in certain contexts. In cases of rape, most would agree that a woman has absolute control of her own body, but feminists take this…

Dear Planned Parenthood: My Miscarriage Was Nothing Like An Abortion

in Culture by

I was sitting on the floor of my bedroom with friends playing Monopoly when I felt it. Something wasn’t right. Afraid, but wanting to appear like everything was normal, I maintained my composure. I would wear my best poker face, even if I was only playing a board game. Politely, I excused myself from the top hat and thimble game pieces and crossed the short distance from my floor to the bathroom across the hall. It was behind the privacy of the closed door that I was first able to confirm what I had already feared — at 17-years-old and…

Disney Rejected Obama Proposal To Use ‘Frozen’ Characters To Push Climate Agenda

in Culture/News/Politics by

Next to the government takeover of healthcare, one of the biggest objectives of former President Barack Obama was tackling climate change. It’s a common rallying point for the left. Liberal and progressive activists like to speak of how humanity is bringing the planet down with endless fear-mongering. The result of the human shaming is bigger government and less freedom, all in the name of saving us from ourselves. Climate change alarmists like to utilize a wide array of propaganda to sell their extremist ideas. One of these propaganda concepts was a proposal by the Obama Administration to utilize the characters…

Morbidly Obese Transgender Official Faces Possible Fraud And Forgery Charges In Uruguay

in Culture/News/World by

Michelle Suárez, the blubbery transgender woman who became the first of her kind to serve elected public office in Uruguay, is under investigation for criminal wrongdoing. The LGBTQ favorite is being investigated for possibly falsifying signatures while she was serving as an attorney. El Observador reports that Suárez allegedly falsified the signatures while she was serving a case in family court. The case took place in 2014 after a man filed a lawsuit against his ex-partner for joint custody of his daughter. During the first day of court, this man was informed that he had signed away his custody. This…

Contemporary Feminism: A Self-Contradiction

in Culture by

The entire Harvey Weinstein/Hollywood sex scandal is but the most recent glimpse into the Feminist Brain. And it is not pretty. To explore the Feminist Mind is the equivalent of being inside of Space Mountain while blindfolded, for it is a place racked with all of the turmoil—all of the madness—that one would expect to find in an oasis of irrationality. To put it succinctly, the Feminist Mind is ridden with incoherence. The Feminist’s insistence that women are entitled to treatment equal to that to which men are entitled rests upon the belief that women are every bit as strong…

Did NBC Oust Matt Lauer To Beat A Bombshell News Report?

in Culture by

American culture has become overcome with a wave of sexual assault allegations. What started with the fall of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has branched out into allegations against celebrities, politicians and even news anchors. Powerful members of society such as Congressman John Conyers are facing massive backlashes while others such as Charlie Rose have fallen from the top. But many seemed to be hit especially hard this week when NBC announced that Matt Lauer, long-time host of the Today Show, had been fired. The reason for the firing, like in many other cases in recent months, was sexual misconduct. As…

Does The Video Game Industry Require Government Intervention?

in Culture/Tech by

Video game company Electronic Arts set off a massive backlash amid gamer concerns surrounding loot boxes, which can be bought using real life money to help get an advantage in game play. They can contain a wide array of different assets, weapons and other useful additions to help gain an edge. But gamers reacted with concern that the game play would be compromised by a paywall, even after spending the full $60 price tag for a complete game. After a widespread public outcry, EA did pull the microtransaction program temporarily and said they have suspended any paid content. While this…

Judge Roy Moore: A Courageous Man Standing Strong Against The Forces Of Evil

The people of Alabama and Governor Kay Ivey have known Judge Roy Moore for his entire lifetime. They know that fabrications of the Washington elite, the socialist Democrats, and the GOP establishment are nothing more than a ploy to attempt to derail his victory in the campaign. They realize that these allegations from so long ago are impossible to prove or disprove and being done because the elites think the people of Alabama are gullible enough to just accept what they see on the idiot box.

Why The Fuss Over Makeapp?

It can also add a filter to photographs, and all in all this filter can be applied to both men and women. Doing a bit of research on the topic, the app uses an algorithm to wash out the color of the photograph, and in particular remove color from…

Al Franken, John Conyers & The Sexual Assault Double Standard

in Culture/Politics by

The last year has been a turbulent year for the American elite. Everyone from prominent politicians to untouchable media giants have been rocked by allegations of sexual assault from women who now feel empowered to speak up. Outside of the political mainstream, even Hollywood’s big names are being rocked by claims of inappropriate sexual behavior. The careers of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, both enormous names in Hollywood, are likely over. Individuals like George H.W. Bush, once held in the highest of esteem, now have multiple allegations counting against their legacy. And for all the right reasons. Sexual assault is…

Gun Control Wouldn’t Work In America

in Culture/Politics by

Another spat of mass shootings, and the same old arguments for and against gun control have sprung up like clockwork. Since we all know this isn’t really going to affect anything, allow me to give my two cents on this issue: Gun control would never work in America (and I specify strictly WITHIN the United States). Not only will it not happen in the United States, it would NOT fix the violent crime problem were it to be passed. First of all, yes, it is true that some other nations in the similar economic “level” as the USA have strict…

Diana Trilling: Guerrilla Feminist

in Culture/History by

When female biographers examine subjects of the same gender via traditionalist institutions (marriage, motherhood), feminists are quick to blast them for affirming the male stereotype of women writers as being unable to write about anything unconnected to a man. But such a view is a-historical when one is dealing with a subject that did not come of age in the Feminist Movement of the 1960s, and deprives the reader of a kind of guerrilla feminism going on beneath traditional roles. Natalie Robins in this good but often frustrating biography manages to rescue Diana Trilling, Nation reviewer, essayist and one of…

The Friendship Of Jimmy Stewart And Henry Fonda Shows That Partisanship Can Be Overcome

in Culture/History by

Uber-liberal Orson Welles once offered as a reason for his friendship with the equally conservative John Wayne was that the latter had “better manners” than the director’s liberal friends. There is certainly a kernel of truth in this when viewed from our vantage point. There are of course some instances where conservatives go into the gutter—and if one considers Trump a conservative then “bad manners” are expressed from the highest office in the land. But by and large it is celebrity liberals today who are the most hateful. A prime example is when liberal actor George Clooney mocked the Alzheimer…

Why Are We Angry?

The arbiters of our culture at Old Media outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times, and the “young and hip” people who write exactly like the Old Media outlets (Huffington Post, Salon, etc) have been in something of a conniption for the past year and a half. Namely, they’ve been wondering what is to be done with these revolting peasants? When they do try to understand it, I can’t help but notice that their “explanations” are one of two of the exact same paradigms that have existed for decades: Either those poor beknighted people are dupes…

Why Hatred Of Whites Is Here To Stay

in Culture/World by

Not so long ago, mere mention of the deliberate murder of whites in South Africa—country folk and commercial farmers, in particular—was called “racist.” “Raaacist!” the media collective brayed when candidate Trump retweeted a related “white genocide” hashtag. It’s still “racist” to suggest that the butchering of these whites, almost daily, in ways that beggar belief, is racially motivated. Positively scandalous is it to describe the ultimate goal of a killing spree, now in its third decade, thus: the ethnic cleansing of white, farming South Africa from land the community has cultivated since the 1600s.

This past weekend, NFL players – who alongside Hollywood stars that regularly get on their knees for acting roles function as our collective moral compass nowadays – across the country were involved in a series of grizzly brawls adding further embarrassment and shame to the beleaguered organization with its ratings already in the toilet.

Hollywood Sexual Assault Culture Is Collapsing Like A House Of Cards

Sex crimes are nothing new for Hollywood. For years, there has been an alleged culture of pedophilia, and Hollywood certainly has its share of child predators.

The rampant sex crimes aren’t just limited to children though, as exposed by the recent wave of Harvey Weinstein allegations. One after another, women are coming forward and gaining strength off one another. Whereas the powerful names in the Hollywood elite were once protected, everything…

It’s almost impossible to not offend someone at any given time in modern America. People have become overly sensitive and the rise of political correctness is even targeting holidays.

Christmas trees are being renamed holiday trees, despite the tree festivity being clearly associated with Christmas. “Merry Christmas” greetings are morphing into “Happy Holidays,” out of fear someone may be offended by a positive greeting that refers to a specific holiday. Now it appears as though Halloween may be the next target for the PC police in our society. Halloween is…

Liberals Demonstrate Anti-Humanitarian Hypocrisy By Supporting Illegal Immigrant Abortions

in Culture/Politics by

Immigration is a hot button issue. The rise of candidate Donald Trump and his ascension to the White House escalated the controversy surrounding illegal immigration. Under the previous administration of Barack Obama, those who resided here illegally were given greater leniency as undocumented immigrants. When Trump criticized those who could not enter our country lawfully, he was torn to shreds for it by the liberal press. For many pro-illegal immigration liberals, this is a humanitarian issue. Laws regarding immigration are irrelevant when lives are at stake. The issue is a humanitarian issue, but the complicated legal issue runs much deeper…

The approximate 800,000 DACA immigrants are called “Dreamers” in an attempt to revive the “DREAM ACT” that Congress refuted years ago.

The children involved in DACA, through no fault of their own, have been placed in an unsustainable position. If President Donald Trump had not stepped in, the courts would have found DACA to be unconstitutional, and it would have been stopped immediately. President Trump has given the Congress six…

Does Ethnic Heterogeneity Make Homicide Worse In The Americas?

in Culture/Politics by

When gun-control advocates make international comparisons on homicide rates, they generally employ an assumption that places with more stringent gun control laws have lower homicide rates. Unfortunately for them, this only holds up when countries with both high levels of gun control and high homicide rates are excluded from the analysis. By recognizing the need to exclude most of the world’s nations from this analysis, the gun control advocates are of course implicitly admitting they recognize that gun control cannot explain low homicide rates in many areas. The case of Mexico, for example, illustrates quite well that simply imposing gun control…

Since Geftman-Gold’s remarks, there have been a slew of similar statements posted by private citizens who seemingly have no fear of their candor causing any hiccups in their careers.

Conservatives are up in arms about what the progressive/socialist Democrats claim was an agreement, and fortunately, blaring it from the mountaintops to the media does not make it so.

“Taking The Knee” Rhymes With “Taking A Pee”

Taking a knee stands for the specter of beefy, pampered athletes—they’re not sportsmen—wealthy beyond belief, striking a political pose on the football field, during the playing of the national anthem. First to kneel when he was meant to stand was Colin Kaepernick. The reason the San Francisco 49er knelt, in 2016: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Like Kaepernick, current kneelers are not Copernicus. It’s hard to fathom what they actually want. A non-player activist has since narrowed the kneeling to “ending…

Why Is Public Opinion Shifting On Athletes Kneeling During National Anthem?

Last year, National Football Player Colin Kaepernick ignited a firestorm of public opinion and debate by refusing to honor the National Anthem. In the months since, it has spread to other players and across numerous sports. Kaepernick’s reason for doing so was to protest racial inequality, a reason many others have adopted. In the beginning, many in the general public stood by Kaepernick. While there is an argument regarding respect, they understand the importance of standing up for what is right. There are legitimate issues nationally regarding racial…
