The ALT-RIGHT

I am a massive fan of PRAGER UNIVERSITY.  They put more into their 5 minute lectures than many “real” colleges do in an entire quarter.  This one is on the so-called AltRight.  AltRight is a term thrown around by the left, with about as much accuracy as they throw around Nazi and Fascist.  Is there an Alt Right?  Yes.  How powerful are they?  A couple of hundred.  Maybe a thousand total.

Quote of the Day

Article II of the articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon was just the simple fact that he talked about and suggested the potential use of the IRS against one or two political opponents. Monica Crowley “The administration and its fronts in the Senate accomplished what Richard Nixon wasn’t able to accomplish, which was the suppression of an entire movement against him.

Quote of the Day

The notion of political correctness has ignited controversy across the land.
