Communism remains Murderous, Activists don’t care, Mr. McCarrick & Cardinal Farrell, Gosnell Movie on Amazon, 9th Inning Nightmare for 2004 Boston vs 1924 Washington.

Apparently some things never change: Yes, the West looked the other way during the 1930s, when people were starving. But the West is also looking the other way in 2019, refusing to see the concentration camps in China’s Xinjiang province. These camps have been designed to suppress the Uighurs, a Muslim ethnic minority whose status … Continue reading Communism remains Murderous, Activists don’t care, Mr. McCarrick & Cardinal Farrell, Gosnell Movie on Amazon, 9th Inning Nightmare for 2004 Boston vs 1924 Washington.

We Averted Our Eyes

by baldilocks I’m old enough to remember when I was called delusional by an alleged conservative for pointing this out. That happened in 2008.
