How The Internet Would Have Covered The First Thanksgiving
These days, a thing hasn’t happened if it hasn’t happened to the internet. If you don’t read about a story online, does it exist? Here at RedState, we say absolutely not. So in order to make the first Thanksgiving more real, to bring it home for us all, we’ve compiled some screenshots that show …Read More »

Lying Waitstaff and The Media Who Love Them
When I was in middle school, a very smart teacher (who I’m sure now was probably conservative) gave us a small project. We were to bring in a newspaper page and look for the words that might indicate opinion. Sprinkled throughout stories written as “news reports” were hints at the author’s opinion on the matter; and if you didn’t read carefully, a reporter could lead | Read More »
Knock-Out King, Mayor Gordon Jenkins, and Why The Police Will Just Let Us Eat Each Other
We on the P.G.P.D for the most part are now looking the other way. After almost [deleted] years on the job I find this disheartening but a necessary fact to survive in today’s, what appears to most officers, an ANTI-POLICE environment. We are even being told by some supervisors to keep a low profile so “you’re not next on the front page”! I became a police officer to help people [deleted] years ago in P.G. County . . . but I now share the attitude of most officers, just let them eat each other, we have to survive.
Fred Reed, “Let Them Eat Each Other”
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Honorable Redstate Blogging Community, I give you Hizzoner, Monticello Mayor Gordon Jenkins after being popped for flyin’ blind. LANGUAGE ALERT. Or as YouTube blogger Carmen Rue put it: “Jenkins curses repeatedly while interacting with officers, calling both white and black policemen numerous hateful racial insults, creating a hostile work environment for the officers and other employees at Village Hall which threatens their health and security and appears designed to diminish the quality of service they are permitted to provide to the public.”Read More »

“We Will Brand Your 8-year-old Kid a Racist for Life.”
Via Daniel Hannan comes this horrifying story of parental bullying via some school in the UK called the “Littleton Green Community School.” Apparently last week, parents in this school district received the following letter sent home (of COURSE in Comic Sans): Now, just to say up front, if I had faith in this particular school district, I would probably have zero problem with my child | Read More »

Batkid vs The Nanny
Arguably the viral story of this past week has been the tale of five-year-old Miles Scott, aka the San Francisco Batkid. Scott, a leukemia patient whose brush with fame comes courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, reportedly spent a day capturing fake “criminals” from Batman’s Rogues gallery, before being celebrated at the San Francisco Civic Center by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. The total cost of | Read More »
JFK’s Unfortunate Legacy: The Weaponized American Conspiracy Theory
Unlike a lot of post-modern Americans, I hold no great love for President John F. Kennedy. Unlike some of my Conservative compatriots; I don’t consider the man Satan Incarnate either. My sum total opinion of JFK could be stated by “Bones” on an old episode of Star Trek. “He’s Dead, Jim.” And regardless of his political impact, that is a sad, sad thing. But what is more tragic is that he hasn’t been allowed to lie in peace. His assassination was weaponized to maximize its political impact and by extension, it has given birth to the tradition of weaponized American conspiracy theories.
There are some who believe The Single Bullet Theory. Others believe in Camelot. A few believe in both or neither. Sadly, as long as it remains a useful political exercise, there are those who will push political conspiracy theories modeled on what was thrown to the paparazzi swine after the fateful day in Dallas, TX back in 1963. I find this to be a shame – both for The Kennedy Family and for American Democracy.Read More »

The Worst Thing about the Census Bureau, Unemployment Rate Conspiracy Theory
Boy! The pollsters sure taught Barack Obama a thing or two! If the election happened tomorrow, do you know who would beat him like a rented farmer’s mule? Mitt Romney! Of course, there’s a catch. The election was a year ago, and Mitt was the mutt that just didn’t quite have the sniff when it counted. Could this be the sign that the Progressives are finally on the way down from their hubris-laden perches of power and influence? It could be, but I have my skeptical doubts.
Yesterday we learned shocking news. Over 100 million Americans have signed up at healthcare.gov! Gappedo couldn’t build enough Pinocchios to rate this on the Washington Post lie scale, so we’re calling it a gaffe. It also comes on the heels of a less amusing foray into the domain of amateur male bovine scatology. It seems the US Census Bureau’s September 2012 Unemployment Report may have been a foray into the magical world of statistical engineering. The NY Post tells us the following:Read More »
