The Right Unites in Charlottesville

Posted by Warren Porter on August 13, 2017 at 6:25 PM

Trump supporters from across the nation gathered in droves this weekend to participate to celebrate our President's "America First" platform. The rally was held in Charlottesville to protest the recent renaming of Robert E. Lee Park to Emancipation field by the Charlottesville City Council. Ironically, these people believe protecting the honor and legacy of one of America's most infamous traitors is essential to American patriotism, but minutiae such as this will not deter American conservatives and their mission to safeguard white privilege in the United States.

A decade before Trump's son sought a meeting with Russians he was told were part of an operation to influence his father's election, I had more or less one place where I could talk to others about the state of my country, one place to really discuss politics.

I wrote an entry here mixing my interest in C.S. Lewis (a profound influence on my religious life) and my philosophy of politics proper relationship to conduct.

Pretend Nothing Is Wrong.

Posted by Stephen Daugherty on June 23, 2017 at 3:15 PM

Pretend you didn't just have to inject millions of dollars into an otherwise safe district to win. Pretend that the world things more of Trump than they do about Obama. Pretend it was Seth Rich and not Russian Intelligence. Pretend somebody saying, with an ongoing investigation, that your not being under investigation means you never will be.
