Why Is Abortion an Absolute Right?

The Spectacle Blog hasn’t written sufficiently on Kermit Gosnell’s atrocious murders. I thank Benjamin Brophy for commenting so articulately on an alarming incident in our culture. The negligence of the Pennsylvania state government is similarly disgusting. According to Business Insider, pro-choice Republican Tom Ridge stopped routine inspections of abortion facilities in 1995. Testifying to the […]

NRA Right on Target

The spirit of the American Revolution lives on in the minds of two out of three Americans who, according to Rasmussen polling, “think the purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny.” Just 17 percent of respondents disagreed with the statement, and 18 percent were unsure. […]

Right Needs Expansion, Not Dismemberment

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Matthew Sheffield on 11.9.12 @ 11:02AM Political losses are interesting to watch. Generally speaking, the left and the right handle them differently. Too often, the tendency of the right is to talk about how certain groups are holding the rest down. Primarily the debate is between those […]

Obama Is Right

Obama has been telling the nation tales since his election.  In fact, his entire life has been one long story with him as writer, director, producer, and star — you could call it “A Barack Obama Production.” It’s not that he hasn’t told us stories; it’s that the ones he has told bear little resemblance […]

How the Left Sabotages the Literary Right

“My biggest complaint,” writes “ebmlaw” in his Amazon review of Terry Lakin’s new book Officer’s Oath, “is about the parts where the author graphically describes being raped by a convicted child molester (or “ch’mo” as he calls them) while in prison.” For those who may not know, Terry Lakin is the medical doctor and former […]

No More ‘Haters’ on the Right

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Daniel Allott on 4.18.12 @ 10:50AM The AP reports that the Rev. Robert Jeffress has endorsed Mitt Romney for president. Jeffress, you may remember, caused a commotion last October when he called Mormonism “a cult” and declared that Romney is not a Christian. Jeffress theological views haven’t […]

Romney, Ryan, and the Right

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By W. James Antle, III on 3.30.12 @ 12:41PM Paul Ryan’s endorsement of Mitt Romney has the potential to be important. Some Republicans have started throwing their weight behind Romney as part of an establishment push to expedite the end of the primary process. Others are backing Romney […]

Mona Charen Gets it Right on Cain and Conservative Wagon-Circling

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Quin Hillyer on 11.11.11 @ 12:02PM I was seriously bothered the other day by the booing at the debate when the moderator asked Herman Cain — firmly but not nastily — about the sexual harassment allegations. Actually, I am always disturbed by audience booing, or any audience […]
