Help Us Meet Our $25,000 Social-Media Outreach Project Goal

As we begin the race to December’s end, we’d like to cap our Webathon with a hard goal for a worthwhile purpose: raising $25,000 to fortify NRO’s social-media outreach.

Over 6 million visitors come to NR every month, and for the sake of the causes we defend and promote, we want that number to be 7 million, 10 million, 20 million. A big part of that growth will be smart social-media efforts, and we are determined to put some financing behind it.

Will you please support this NRO outreach project? When you do, you will be engaging in some very cost-effective means of standing athwart history, clicking SHARE.

By the way, a word from some recent contributors . . .

Jeffrey K just plopped a hundred bucks into our lap and added “Thank you. Your writers are consistently brilliant and witty and always informative.” Always is right. Thanks, JK!

With his $25 contribution Mark M offers glad tidings and warm wishes: “Thank you Mr. Williamson, Dr. Sowell, and, of course, VDH. Be well this Christmas holiday.” Back at ya, Double M.

And finally, more figgy pudding-time wishes, here from Paul K, another $100 benefactor: “Thanks for some of the greatest voices of sanity left in this zoo, especially Jonah and Jim who actually make my inbox useful. Thanks also to the staff that brings them to us. Merry Christmas.”

Thanks to you too, Paul, and to all who have helped NR these last few weeks and these last few decades. Again, please donate here.

Men Literally Died for That Flag, You Idiots

The American flag’s place in our culture is beginning to look less unassailable. The symbol itself is under attack, as we’ve seen with Nike dumping a shoe design featuring an early American flag, Megan Rapinoe defending her national-anthem protests (she says she will never sing the song again), and ...

Trump and the ‘Racist Tweets’

What does “racist” even mean anymore? Racism is the headline on President Trump’s Sunday tweets -- the media-Democrat complex assiduously describes them as “racist tweets” as if that were a fact rather than a trope. I don’t think they were racist; I think they were abjectly stupid. Like many ... Read More

He Just Can’t Help Himself

By Saturday, the long-simmering fight between Nancy Pelosi and her allies on one side and the “squad” associated with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the other had risen to an angrier and more destructive level at the Netroots Nation conference.

Ilhan Omar Is Completely Assimilated

Beto O’Rourke, the losing Texas Senate candidate who bootstrapped his way into becoming a losing presidential candidate, had a message for refugees who had come to America: Your new country is a hellhole. The former congressman told a roundtable of refugees and immigrants in Nashville, Tenn., last week: ... Read More

On Gratitude and Immigration

Like both Rich and David, I consider it flatly inappropriate for the president of the United States to be telling Americans -- rhetorically or otherwise -- to “go back where you came from.” In consequence, you will find no defense of the president from me, either. What Trump tweeted over the weekend was ... Read More

We All Wanted to Love the Women’s Soccer Team

For the first time in my life, I did not root for an American team. Whatever the sport, I have always rooted American. And if those who called in to my radio show were representative of my audience, many millions of Americans made the same sad choice. It takes a lot for people like me not to root for an ... Read More
