Piers Morgan says this kind of stuff is what is driving the rise in Trump's - and the GOP's - rising poll numbers:
Of course, Trump remains a hugely divisive and polarising figure with a penchant for flying loose with the truth and heavy on the inflammatory rhetoric.
But love him or loathe him, there is no denying that he’s winning.
So once again, I can only advise the Democrats to stop their ridiculously self-defeating state of perpetual Trump outrage and work out how they’re actually going to beat him.
Because right now, Trump’s kicking your a**.Also along these lines, Roger L. Simon at PJ Media says that "The Caravan Means the Wall Will Be Built."
David French at NRO says, "Stop it with this idiocy about how the possible rollback of Title IX's definition of sex to include people who resent the DNA they were born with (an expansion of the definition that happened on the Most Equal Comrade's watch) somehow deprives such people of their humanity."
Robert Stacy McCain on how listening to the likes of Richard Florida has accelerated our cultural rot:
Great Jake Wagner piece at The Resurgent entitled "the Collective 'We' and the Republican Form of Government." He launches into his subject by noting how Michigan leftists are fond of talking about "our water."One of the Bad Ideas of recent years that bothers me most — because it is both widely believed among the elite and easily demonstrable as wrong — is Richard Florida’s theory of the “Creative Class”:While I was in Massachusetts last fall for a book event hosted by Pete Da Tech Guy, we visited a Mexican restaurant in Worcester, a somewhat run-down city that was once a major manufacturing center. Picking up the local free alternative weekly Worcester Magazine, I was thumbing through it and noticed an ad proclaiming the city’s enthusiastic devotion to LGBT rights.
I doubt that anyone in America, asked to name a city notable for its vibrant homosexual community, would name Worcester, Mass., off the top of their head, but it was obvious the local Chamber of Commerce had bought into Richard Florida’s analysis, which uses “a gay index (ranking cities by the concentration of gay couples in the population)” as one metric of urban growth potential within his “creative class” theory . . .The problem is that this is a reversal of cause and effect. Prosperity attracts artists and intellectuals to a city, but they are not the ones who create the basis of prosperity. Ancient Athens was famed for its architecture and philosophy, but its prosperity was due to the success of the Athenians in commerce and in war. Through the Aegean port of Piraeus, the ancient Athenians developed a vast merchant empire, establishing colonies throughout the region, as far as modern-day Turkey and Italy, and the wealth obtained by trade enabled the Athenians to equip a powerful army and navy. The Athenians were an adventurous, enterprising and warlike people, and it was these qualities that made their city wealthy, thus attracting the artists and philosophers. Richard Florida’s “creative class” theory gets this causation exactly backwards, confusing certain traits of wealthy places (especially tolerance of homosexuality) as the reason those places became wealthy.
