Courtesy of Martin van Creveld’s blog, I discovered an article with that title published in 2000. It made me laugh out loud, both for the incongruity of its title (after all, the Marines are known for breaking things and killing people, neither of which requires exceptional sensitivity!) and for its humor. Here’s an excerpt.… Continue reading “Confessions of a Marine Corps sensitivity trainer”
I haven’t spoken much about the crisis of indoctrination and political correctness at our schools, because I don’t have children of my own and I’m somewhat remote from the problem. Nevertheless, it’s grown to the point that it is (or should be) a national scandal at present. The fact that it isn’t is an… Continue reading Schools as propaganda and indoctrination mills
Greg Ellifritz, a nationally known and respected law enforcement and self-defense instructor whom we’ve met in these pages before, wrote a very good analysis of the Uvalde school shooting soon after it occurred, based on the information then available. A lot has been learned since. Now he’s come out with an updated analysis –… Continue reading A lesson from Uvalde: “You get the police department you deserve”
Politifact has put out an article purporting to show that gender and sexuality “education” in schools is not grooming, but merely addressing actual issues where children need support. I don’t propose to quote from it here; if you’re interested, you can read it at the link provided above. I’ll merely post links to certain… Continue reading Of course it’s “grooming”!
This report should make any normal parent grit their teeth in frustration. While attending a training meeting in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, a parent found a urinal in the women’s room of Upper Perkiomen Middle School. “I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. I had to check the sign because I thought I was… Continue reading Political correctness and gender “neutrality” gone mad!
I prefer to post transcripts of videos whenever possible, because most of us can read and comprehend far faster from them than from sitting through a presentation. Unfortunately, in this case, there’s no transcript available: but I thought the subject, and the presenter’s insights, were so important that I wanted to blog about it… Continue reading The call for “school choice” may be an extremist trap
We’ve seen how, for years, “Critical Race Theory” has been used to undermine sound common sense and subvert our society. It’s a pernicious scourge that will take years, if not decades, to root out – and that’s assuming we can muster enough support to do so. We’ve also seen how LGBTQetc. groups have sought… Continue reading Brilliant! “Critical Grooming Theory”
This report makes my blood boil with anger. A North Carolina medical student and trans rights activist seemingly bragged on Twitter about intentionally injuring a patient who mocked her for wearing a pronoun pin saying she/her. Kychelle Del Rosario, a fourth-year student at Wake Forest University’s School of Medicine, claimed to have purposefully missed… Continue reading PLEASE tell me this person will never be licensed to practice medicine???
Following the publication of my latest Western novel, “Wood, Iron, and Blood“, I’ve had a few questions from readers about how I’m able to find so much historical material in my research. The simple answer is, there’s a lot of it out there. If you find a few sources and follow them, they lead… Continue reading Researching the Wild West – some examples on film
