Owen Strachan: Terrible Ideas Have Terrible Consequences

The tremendous violence in America migrated to an unlikely setting recently: The typically quiet city of Kenosha, Wisconsin. According to the Kenosha police department, out of 175 people arrested recently, 102 had a home address outside Kenosha, hailing from no less than 44 different cities.

What this means is that our cities are being torn apart by what amounts to a professional rioting class. These “protesters” are not merely upset; they are not merely decrying what they see as injustices. Those of the rioting class are genuine radicals—believing, per Critical Race Theory—that America is built upon a racist foundation. “White supremacy” represents the structure of this country, and so to cleanse America of it, American civilization must be torn down and rebuilt.

We are not merely witnessing “outrage” today. We are witnessing a focused attack on the fabric of America.

Terrible ideas have terrible consequences.

Media Throws out Objectivity and Embraces Propaganda: Bob Frantz with Pete Kirsanow

Bob Frantz has a wide-ranging interview with Peter Kirsanow, commissioner on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, about the #walkaway campaign, Lebron James and BLM overlooking the overwhelming interracial crimes against whites, the entire Democrat party devoted to false narratives, media blackouts the rise in violence in Democrat-run cities, and Joe Biden plagiarism while campaigning.

Lanhee Chen: The Choice This November Is Clear

Both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions have ended, and Election Day is coming quickly.

Here’s what we know about the fall campaign. It will feature a true contrast in ideas and ideology.

Joe Biden has made clear that he believes in a dramatically more powerful federal government that will play a bigger role in everything from health care to energy policy. The power with Democrats today doesn’t lie with moderate leaders who want incremental change. No, it’s with far-left progressives like Bernie Sanders who are looking to transform America.

You don’t have to agree with everything Donald Trump says and does to recognize that his vision is very different. He wants a freer America, one where Washington gets out of our way. Trump’s policies will work to boost our economy, make health care more affordable, and give citizens—not government—more power to make the decisions that are best for them.

The choice this November is clear. Now it’s up to us to make our voices heard.

Michael Medved: Lessons From Urban Unrest

The fiery riots convulsing American cities have begun to resemble the devastating violence of the late 1960s, and will likely end the same way. Between 1965 and 1969, more than 150 American cities exploded in episodes of race-based destruction, beginning with LA’s Watts Riot that killed or injured more than 1,000 and destroyed 1,000 buildings.

Princeton scholar Omar Wasow studied the election that followed the riots, finding that areas scarred by unrest showed sharp increases in support for “Law and Order” candidates. By 1972, Richard Nixon, the proudly proclaimed “Law and Order” president, carried 49 states with an epic 61% popular vote landslide, by denouncing the leftist takeover of the Democratic Party with the candidacy of George McGovern.

In other words, Americans overwhelmingly rejected the violent protesters in both inner cities and on college campuses, so that radical “resistance” soon subsided—a crucial lesson for today’s nihilistic agitators and their feckless apologists.

Owen Strachan: A Republican Agenda for the Future

The recent unveiling of the Republican agenda for a second term gave much encouragement to many who need it. Defeat COVID; create jobs; disentangle from China; provide school choice; teach American exceptionalism unapologetically; defend the police as an institution; oppose human trafficking—these and other measures offer sanity, flourishing, and hope to an embattled country.

No agenda can cover every issue. Two outstanding issues need platforming, however: religious liberty and abortion. The Trump administration has taken stands on both of these momentous matters and to good effect. In days ahead, though, supporters of religious liberty and the unerasable humanity of the unborn need more support, not less.

Religious liberty, after all, is for this gloriously free society the first freedom. Among other righteous ends, it enables a diverse coalition of many voices to speak on behalf of the unborn until the murderous abomination of abortion is a distant memory.
