Was Mohammed a “True Muslim”?

Selwyn Duke FALSE DOCTRINE, FEATURED ARTICLES, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL, YOU DECIDE 0 Comments

By Selwyn Duke In the wake of every terrorist act there is the same argument. The voices-in-the-wilderness right will say, insofar as they’re not muzzled with hate-speech laws, that Islam is the problem. In contrast, a leftist drumbeat of media and mainstream politicos will assert that the Muslim terrorists aren’t really “Muslim” terrorists, that they’ve perverted the faith. As to the truth, it’s as with any other debate over a thing’s true meaning (e.g., the …

The Great ‘Christian Terrorist’ Unicorn Hunt

Selwyn Duke FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS 0 Comments

By Selwyn Duke It’s amazing how stupid smart people can seem when intent on putting a square peg in a round hole. This is seen continually when certain apologists try to dig Islam out of its hole — the one dug deeper every time there’s another terrorist act. Consider the recent London jihadist attack by Muslim convert Khalid Masood. Globe & Fail columnist Doug Saunders, proving he missed his calling as a contortionist, actually tweeted …

   Trigger-Warning Tyrants

Selwyn Duke FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS 0 Comments

By Selwyn Duke People like thinking the best of themselves, which is partially why we have “trigger warnings,” “microaggressions” and claims of “taking offense” — so these complainers don’t have to come to terms with the fact they’re spoiled, self-absorbed, tyrannical brats. Here’s how it works: When accusing you of “microaggressing,” the truth is that, generally, these snowflakes just don’t happen to like what you’re saying. But shouting “Shut up! I hate that type of …

Trump Could Simply Ignore Court’s Order Halting Travel Ban

By Selwyn Duke Does our current status quo make our Constitution a suicide pact? Thomas Jefferson certainly said as much, warning that accepting judicial supremacy would make our founding document just that, a felo de se, as he put it in Latin. Acceptance of judicial supremacy, by the way, is precisely why President Trump’s temporary ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations is on hold. Imagine that, Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist, No. 78 that the judiciary …

Actress Alison Becker Sends Racist, Sexist Tweet

Selwyn Duke FEATURED ARTICLES, U.S. NEWS 0 Comments

By Selwyn Duke It’s yet another example of Trump-era celebrity derangement. Comedienne and actress Alison Becker attacked me via Twitter recently, saying I “have absolutely no authority on inequality as a white, cis male.” Becker, a host on Fuse and VH1 who has also appeared on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, had some hostile intent Feb. 1 in tweeting that an article I wrote “is ignorant, offensive, and misses the point.” She didn’t indicate what …

How to Drain the Judicial Swamp

Selwyn Duke FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS 0 Comments

By Selwyn Duke It’s no surprise the Democrats plan to fight against the nomination of President Trump’s Supreme Court pick, 10th Circuit Court of Appeals judge Neil Gorsuch. There are no confirmation battles like Supreme Court confirmation battles because, as we always hear, such a decision can “shape the country for a generation.” This doesn’t sound like the role envisioned by the founders. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist No. 78, the judiciary is …

Neil Gorsuch and the Living Constitution Lie

Selwyn Duke FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 Comments

By Selwyn Duke While leftists are outraged at the idea of banning immigrants who may spit on our Constitution, banning judges who would actually uphold it is a different matter. This brings us to the opposition to President Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Judge Neil Gorsuch, who The New York Times actually calls a “Nominee for a Stolen Seat.” In reality, the Times advocates a perversion of judicial philosophy that long ago had stolen Americans’ birthright. …
