Steve King tweeted that "culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies."
Feel free to laugh: "I gravitate to facts, logic, and reality, whereas to me, liberalism is based on theory, and feelings, and fantasy."
Women stood up for their rights in the Roman forum 2000 years ago, and women today are forced to do the same or consent to male control

Brooks slammed Cruz for manufacturing "an atmosphere of menace" but Cruz's scorched-Earth religious agenda is right out of the Old Testament
The liberal project's foe is a conservative ideology that de-legitimizes other modes of thought, compromise and a thought for the common weal
I don’t like to overuse the term “must read” but Linda Martin Alcoff’s The Future of Whiteness (2015, Polity) is a must-read. We live in the era of white reaction to non-whites getting equal rights, and changing demographics – by 2050 white Europeans will no longer be a majority – have created a frenzy of over-reaction on the right, and some problems on the left too, as Bernie Sanders found out when Black Lives Matter upstaged him and demanded to be heard.

The Pew survey should disabuse Americans of the notion that the teabagger or Republican movements are not havens for right wing extremism,.
Conservatives are terrified of a well-educated populace, and for over a year the terror du jour is Common Core that the great majority of conservative Christian fear-mongers have little-to-no comprehension of what it entails.
Loathe what the liberals stand for, meet their agenda with animosity, cultivate a visceral desire to wipe it from the face of the Earth. Hate, hate, hate it with the fires of a thousand burning suns.
To put Ryan's face on the new compassionate conservatism is an affront to any American familiar with his contempt for suffering Americans.
Nelson Mandela was everything that Ronald Reagan wasn't. For Conservatives today, that simply means that Mandela was clearly in the wrong.
