You Gotta Serve Somebody

UR DULY ESTEEMED ESSAYIST Clarice Feldman writing a piece n today's cluster of new American Thinker articles, describes the Left as people delighted... "...in the absolute certainty of the righteousness and soundness of their views, and their right to have them automatically accepted as the approved model for all right thinking people." Progressives hold about a dozen core beliefs plus variations. Half of their beliefs contradict the other half. With a little study, skewering them can be reduced to just a few chess moves. The corrective screeching that results is music. We also welcome the contributions of American Thinker Robert...

ere's an adept adaptation gone viral of a famous poem about the Nazis written by Pastor Martin Niemöller, a German anti-Nazi theologian. Niemöller was imprisoned for his passionate dissent in the infamous Sachsenhausen and Dachau concentration camps from 1937 to 1945 where prisoners lived in constant fear of brutal treatment and terror detention including standing cells, floggings, the so-called tree or pole hanging, and standing at attention for extremely long periods.
