    The kid was kicked out of an organization for expressing his (parents') unpopular political views. That is political correctness, by definition.

    Iowa State two spots out of the poll ...

    I'm quite aware of Woodrow Wilson and his racist ideology. Wasnt really talking about his global outlook on progressivism, but the march in this country toward the enfrachisement of people who were not white male landowners. Since we're suggesting homework for each other, see numerous amendments to the Constitution, the civil war, suffragette movements, the know nothings, MLK, Cesar Chavez, etc. Point is, white males were the originators and dominant purveyors of "identity politics" in this country for centuries before anybody else got into the game ...
  4. Woo-Hoo! It's time for CFB Pick-'em!

    DUSHEE is having unprecedented success this season. Three for three since I started making my picks based on it this season ...

    The entire history of progressive politics in this country has been non white, male, landowning elites trying to wrest some power from white, male, landowning elites. Those white, male, landowning elites were the first and most effective players of identity politics. If progressives have gotten better at playing that game in recent decades, it is after centuries of mastery from the entrenched power class.

    Another example to show political correctness ain't just a liberal thing ... Cub scout 'heartbroken,' kicked out of his den for asking Colorado state senator tough questions Ames asked very specific questions on gun control when State Senator Vicki Marble visited the 11-year-old's den on Oct. 9. "Why on earth would you want somebody who beats their wife to have access to a gun," Ames asked State Senator Marble, in a video recorded by his mom. "There's something wrong in our country where Republicans believe it's a right to own a gun, but a privilege to have health care." Five days later, the Pack leader met with Ames' mom and said Ames could find another Den within the Pack but not the one he was currently in.

    The assignment of guilt here is based on your political leanings. Conservatives have played identity politics just as long as liberals, and far more successfully. Case in point: Do you notice how you don't hear very many conservatives actually address why black athletes are kneeling for the national anthem at football games? They shout "Anti-America!" and "Anti-Military!" "grandstanding" from their "soapboxes." It is political correctness in its own right, just as egregious as when Al Sharpton screams "Racist!" every time a black person is wronged in the mere vicinity of a white person. They don't have to address the underlying substance of the protest because they know black people aren't going to vote for them and the notion that systemic racial biases are still a problem in modern society where white people still hold the vast majority of power is uncomfortable for them. So no, I do not buy that the librul media are to blame for identity politics. Tribalism is to blame for identity politics and that is endemic to human nature whether you are conservative or liberal.
  9. TCU 2017-2018 Basketball

    Yeah, given those totals, everyone voted Kansas 1 save Bill Self (who couldn't have voted for himself). Assuming Self was the one guy who voted WVU #1, WVU was 2 points shy of being unanimous #2 ... so either 2 coaches voted them 3rd or one coach voted them 4th. TCU is 1-point above a unanimous 3rd, so at least 1 other coach voted us 2nd if both Self and Huggy Bear voted us 2nd in their polls.

    I fully admit to not following basketball enough to have an educated opinion on the matter, but that is absolutely stunning. I had to click the link to make sure you hadn't posted the women's poll instead ...
  11. Kansas U @ TCU

    Another 7 hour game. Y'all have fun with that ...

    I don't disagree. And if you think Trump himself hasn't done all he possibly can to stoke those culture war fires to distract from the important stuff going on in his administration ... Trump and the "MSM" are in a state of symbiosis. They are great for each others' business. Perpetual outrage keeps people clicking on links and keeps his base fired up and keeps the people his base hates fired up which keeps them fired up. The wall, the immigration bans, the NFL/anthem nonsense ... all Trump fighting on his own culture war front. None of those things will do a damn thing to make the country better or safer or "great." They are all designed to keep people (on both sides) fired up. So yes, let's blame the MSM for their role in this. But let's not absolve the Perpetual Outrager in Chief of his role.
