We Hear You: White Supremacists, Black Lives Matter, and Antifa in Charlottesville

Editor’s note: The Daily Signal’s coverage of the violence in Charlottesville and its political aftermath, including President Trump’s hotly disputed comments, stirred responses from our audience. Here is a sampling. Write us: letters@dailysignal.com—Ken McIntyre Throughout and beyond Donald Trump’s election, we have witnessed unacknowledged left-wing, violent protests against the invented “fascism”  and “white supremacy” of Trump—both utter distortions meant to color Trump as a racist as well as Hitler-like (“1 Dead, 9 Seriously Injured as Car Slams Into Pedestrians at White Nationalist Rally“). Fascism, anyone? The left protests with violence against ideas they regard as a physical assault. Huh? So speech equals physical attack? And shutting down speech is fascism. So who, really, is a fascist? Has any major figure on the left come out to denounce Black Lives Matter or Antifa? Black … Read entire article »

The New York Times Continues Its Tradition of Whitewashing Communism

It seems communism is back in vogue at The New York Times. A sad but common issue in the modern West is that progressives have created a fanciful and distorted picture of socialism to make it seem like an intriguing alternative to American-style capitalism. Ikea socialism—with Sweden as the model—is an utterly distorted, but at least understandable, example for leftists to trot out as a demonstration of success. And it’s even a bit amusing how they try to dance around the fact that Venezuela—which is utterly collapsing and egregiously abusing human rights—is a socialist country they praised just 10 years ago. >>> Socialism Has Destroyed Venezuela But The New York Times now has actually found a way to create fanciful notions of Soviet-style authoritarianism—and whimsical tales of its influence in America—in a new section dedicated … Read entire article »

How New York City May Be Shortchanging Its Poorest Students

Last year, 822 public school employees sat idle in “rubber rooms” in New York City. Well, perhaps not entirely idle. Some played Scrabble, others slept. On average, a quarter of these taxpayer-funded employees have sat in these rubber rooms—places where teachers who have been dismissed from the system but can’t be fired spend their days—for five years. The average salary of these teachers—who are not working—is $94,000 per year. Their counterparts in the district who are working every day earn $10,000 less each year. Yet, as the poorest and most disadvantaged children in New York head back to school in the coming weeks, they’ll find these union-protected employees have been shuffled into their classrooms, likely moved into unfilled teaching slots in the worst-performing schools in the city. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, … Read entire article »

Closure of Kerch Strait Is Russia’s Latest Attack on Ukrainian Sovereignty

In May 2015, Russia began constructing a planned 11.8-mile bridge across the Kerch Strait, a body of water that sits between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. The Russian bridge project is meant to connect the Russian mainland with the Crimean Peninsula, the region of Ukraine that Russia illegally annexed in 2014. Two weeks ago, Russia announced temporary closures of the Kerch Strait to accommodate bridge construction. The closures have cut off Ukraine’s southeast coast, including Berdiansk and the strategically important Mariupol, Ukraine’s 10th-largest city and a key port for exports like Ukrainian steel. Currently, Russia can only access the Crimean Peninsula by air and sea. The bridge project would create a rail and road link, and further entrench Russia’s position on the annexed peninsula. Part of a December 2003 bilateral agreement … Read entire article »

Hillary describes how she could have been a contender but for the ‘creep’

**Written by Doug Powers Hillary Clinton’s first book excerpt proves that she’s going to take personal responsibility for her loss — Just kidding! She’s got more victim cards and she ain’t afraid to use them: Hillary Clinton says her skin crawled as Donald Trump loomed behind her during the second presidential debate. In an excerpt from her new book “What Happened,” the former Democratic Party nominee admits she’s not sure she handled Trump properly. “Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly, ‘back up you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me so back up,’” Clinton writes in an excerpt … Read entire article »

The Red York Times: First in Fake News

The Red York Times: First in Fake News by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2017 Newsflash from The New York Times: Women may have starved under socialist regimes, but their orgasms were out of this world! That’s the creepy gist of one of the Grey Lady’s recent essays this summer hailing the “Red Century.” The paper’s ongoing series explores “the history and legacy of Communism, 100 years after the Russian Revolution.” When its essayists aren’t busy championing the great sex that oppressed women enjoyed in miserable Eastern Bloc countries, they’re extolling Lenin’s fantabulous conservationist programs and pimping “Communism for Kids” propaganda. Since this is back-to-school season, it’s the perfect time to teach your children about faux journalism at the Fishwrap of Record. As the publication’s pretentious own new slogan asserts, “The truth is more important than … Read entire article »
