1984 in the classroom

  At Triton Regional High School in Rowley, it’s 1984 – the novel, not the year. The sniveling PC school administration is backing off now, but the 32-page questionnaire they were asking their middle and high school students to fill out last week is chilling. It’s downright totalitarian, and it’s put out by the Harvard School of Education, but I repeat myself. The kids from the high and middle schools (the questionnaire included a box for 10-year-olds to check) were asked by the apparatchiks from the People’s Republic of Cambridge to rat out their parents for insufficient Political Correctness. George Orwell’s Ministry of Love would have been impressed. Here’s a […]

Worry about welfare of resettled Syrians

This time it wasn’t immigration, it was welfare. But once again Donald Trump was ahead of the curve, daring to say what most people fear to even think. This time about fatties with food stamps.   “We have 43 million,” he was saying Wednesday night in Worcester, “and it’s probably going to be closer to 50 million people on food stamps. And I’ll tell you what, if we had a real –“   The tubby Democrat stood up and started bellowing. After he was quickly led away, Trump smiled.   “You know it’s amazing,” he told his 10,00-plus fans at the DCU Center. “I mention food stamps and that guy […]

John Kerry’s mouth a diplomatic incident

John Forbes Kerry has said a lot of breathtakingly stupid things over the years, but this latest outbreak of foot-in-mouth disease may be his most appalling yet.   At the US embassy in Paris Tuesday, the secretary of state compared the two Muslim terrorist massacres in France this year – shooting up the Charlie Hedbo magazine offices and then last Friday’s celebration of diversity.   “There’s something different about what happened (Friday) from Hedbo,” he says on the tape, “and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not legitimacy – but a rationale that you […]

Uncharacteristically quiet, Trump’s thoughts on me were loud and clear

As he widens his lead in the polls, it’s getting harder to pry a usable sound bite or headline out of Donald Trump.   Maybe he’s beginning to believe he could win this thing.   Trump will be speaking to an SRO crowd in Worcester tonight at the DCU Center, so he came on my radio show yesterday. I had a whole list of questions, at least one of which I figured could set him off. But it’s not as easy as in the old days, by which I mean July.   The closest I came to making the Drudge Report was when I reminded him of Gov. Charlie Baker, […]

How dare Charlie Baker put Mass. safety ahead of terrorism!

The moonbats were so angry at the governor yesterday that they tagged him with a new first name – Republican Charlie Baker.   How dare he! Declining to put out a welcome mat for “Syrian refugees” – a huge percentage of whom are neither Syrian nor refugees – is enough to make them stamp their Birkenstock-clad feet on the floor and hold their breaths until Bernie Sanders is elected president.   The liberals were screaming at the radios in their Priuses as they heard their favorite NPR station reporting Republican Charlie Baker’s xenophobic, nativist, racist, transgressive microaggressions.   “No, I’m not interested in accepting refugees from Syria,” Republican Charlie Baker […]

Obama, Kerry lost in the clouds

Obama and Kerry will soon be flying to Paris to beat their breasts about how the climate is changing… for the worse.   No kidding the climate in France is changing!   But these clowns are making like ostriches, burying their heads in the sand. Hey, all Nero did was fiddle while Rome burned. Our new emperors are actively conniving to import more arsonists – “migrants” — into our modern-day Rome. Obama doesn’t care that his own FBI director has said publicly we have no way of vetting this next generation of Tsarnaevs. He just wants to get them over here and onto to the welfare rolls (91 percent of […]

Doc Silber would have strong-armed PC brats

At moments like this, I really miss John Silber.   How do you think the late president of Boston University would be handling these ridiculous “protests” and purported racist incidents on various college campuses?   Here is Silber in a 2005 magazine article describing the BU hippies he had to battle back in the 1970’s, long before he was almost elected governor:   “I do not not take them seriously. This is not some very deeply felt, high moral cause on their part; this is showboating of a very insincere kind by most of these students, and I want them to understand that I see through their pretensions.”   Perfect.
