The last article proves that liberal PC police who profess to care so much about bias are often the greatest perpetrators of it.

I will discuss these topics in greater detail in my upcoming book: Rapidly Overcoming Racism, Bigotry, and Homophobia

Free speech

“The Democrats are hobbled by multiculturalism and political correctness. That's what Donald Trump exploited in … getting the … frustration with not being able to speak your mind … Until the Democrats realize it—PC and multiculturalism aren't the way to go—they're going to be shackled as a political party.”
— Journalist Matthew Continetti, editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon (source)
Comment: Democrats feign political correctness, framing it as something no cultured person could possibly disagree with—not that they personally believe it (witness the bigotry evident in the Hillary Clinton campaign WikiLeaks e-mails), but this backfired on them because Americans are sick and tired of being labeled a racist, xenophobic no-good excuse for a person just because they're not always politically correct—nor do they want to be. With even Obama making PC mistakes (and getting away with them, because the Left excuses their transgressions), political correctness is an impossible standard that repulses people who love free speech more than this sick political game concocted by Democrats, who wouldn't need it if they had better ideas on how to run the country instead of running it into the ground.

Jeff Bezos, responding to how he was portrayed in The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon

Internet

“It's clear to anyone with eyes and a brain that the Internet has become a superhighway of defamation. Anything goes, no accountability—we all know that. That situation has a chilling effect on democracy because falsehoods can become truths in weak minds, and there are plenty of those. So here's the truth: the truth really doesn't matter anymore, does it? At least in cyberspace, there are scores of websites set up to injure people.”
Bill O'Reilly (2-25-2015)

Increasing pleasure, fun, and happiness

This series on increasing pleasure, fun, and happiness illustrates how we are needlessly being robbed of enjoyment because our brains are literally stuck in the Stone Ages regarding bliss. This antediluvian remnant of evolution once served us well, but its adaptive value is long gone. Our genes aren't even trying to catch up, but with a bit of knowledge, you can overcome it.

Most people seek pleasure in indirect ways such as pursuing wealth or attractive partners, but they usually provide only ephemeral delight. The direct approach is the key to getting more than you ever dreamed possible. There is no heaven on Earth, but there are legal and healthy ways to feel that good. Stress makes you miserable as it erodes your health and appearance, so my recipe for happiness will improve your body, mind, and mood.

Siding with liberals

One might think that I would be the last person to side with liberals, some of whom have gone way overboard smearing me (see below), but my allegiance is with truth and justice, not partisan ideology. Thanks to my inadequate education, it took me too long to realize that liberals are indeed correct about some of the most contentious issues that divide our nation. Conservatives who don't yet realize the errors forming the pillars of their beliefs may be, as I once was, simply lacking in education (that is, ignorant), not stupid or immoral. In this series of articles, I will elucidate the epiphanies that enabled me to wake up and see that liberals were correct after all. In my opinion, liberals are partially responsible for some of the resistance to accepting their ideas because they haven't done an adequate job presenting their cases in ways that enable reasonable people to understand why they are correct. I endeavor to do better.

Fighting the far-left smears

Accepting Media Matters as a credible information source is like believing supermarket tabloids that report sightings of UFOs and Elvis. People who believe their nonsense are as daffy as those who fell for the Nazi propaganda that Jews are bad.

Media Matters appeals to those not running on all eight cylinders—folks so intellectually challenged and lazy they're happy to let others think for them, filling their brains with fictions so fabricated it repels smart Democrats, such as Professor Dershowitz (see below).

The tactic of Media Matters is to throw enough mud at the wall, hoping some of it will stick. The allegations they made about me are nonsense, believed only by small-minded people more concerned with advancing their political agenda than the truth, as I will prove in an upcoming book (Cyberstalking as a Political Weapon) that documents how low the smear merchants will go. Even the über-liberal New York Times called Media Matters “highly partisan.”

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, who describes himself as a liberal Democrat, declared war on Media Matters, saying they have “crossed the line” and use Hitler-like tactics. (“Hitler-like tactics” are baseless attacks on good people who are demonized by monsters.) Professor Dershowitz said he “can't tolerate bigotry on any side of the political spectrum.”

bigot (noun): (1) a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing opinion, belief, or creed; (2) a person who is obstinately intolerant of any ideas other than his or her own, especially on politics or religion, and has animosity toward those of differing beliefs.

Dershowitz said the Media Matters smear merchant used “virulent hate speech” and an odious, “wildly inaccurate” canard:

canard (noun): a fabricated sensational statement or report, especially one set afloat in the media to hoax the public; an absurd, unfounded, false, baseless, or extravagant report, rumor, hoax, or story that is deliberately misleading and usually derogatory; a false report motivated by maliciousness that is intended to deceive people; a fable, fiction, or falsehood; a lie.

Dana Loesch wrote that Media Matters “has been an embarrassment with pettiness and hyperbole permeating every post. Their baseless attacks on political enemies they wish to blacklist has earned them the reputation as modern-day book burners. Their mission of correcting "conservative misinformation" has been refuted countless times by numerous outlets.”

While there is indeed “conservative misinformation,” the best way to combat it is not with more misinformation, but that's what Media Matters sometimes uses. Largely conservative news organizations such as Fox News usually stick to the truth in what they report; their big lies are generally what they don't say. Don't think so? Try this pop quiz: What recent White House inhabitant is a killer? Don't know? If you read my article giving the surprising answer, you'll see examples of how Americans are deceived by a news organization that claims to be “fair and balanced.” With lies from the Left and lies from the Right, it's no wonder why so many people are so deluded by media that sweep inconvenient facts under the rug and use misinformation to help them achieve their political objectives. They play this game because their politicians are usually disappointing if not pathetic.

If Obama had done half as much to restore our economy as Hitler did to restore the German economy, Romney would get votes only from his family. President Obama has done a surprisingly good job helping some of his supporters, but the money that went into their pockets came out of other American pockets. The net benefit is zero if we overlook the trillions he spent to achieve so little; factoring that in, the net result is disastrous.

The United States cannot pin its hopes for a recovery by figuratively transferring money from one pocket to another (just as your spouse cannot enrich your family by giving you money). Obama and his supporters are smart enough to know this, but they hope you're dumb enough to have the wool pulled over your eyes as they throw out irrelevant distractions to divert focus from what is crucial: our economic recovery.

President Obama squandered countless opportunities to use his arguably greatest gift—his rhetorical ability—to spur Americans into overdrive. His actions and words belied the message that he and other politicians strive to convey: that success is best achieved by expanding the American pie, not fighting how it is divided. He could have outsmarted conservative politicians by giving voters on the Right more of what they want while doing the same for voters on the Left. Simultaneously thrilling the Right and Left, and everyone in between, seems like a pipe dream until you read my article explaining one facet of it.

I don't think Romney has magical answers, either, but after almost four years in office, Obama has just about proven that he doesn't. Unable to run on his lackluster record, he and his many proxies engage in Chicago-style politics: crooked, sleazy, underhanded, and unethical hit-below-the-belt tactics that tacitly admit he doesn't have The Right Stuff to win a fair fight, despite some of the good things he's done. If you explore all pages of this blog, you will see that I am politically independent (hardly the typical Obama-bashing conservative; I bash conservatives and Fox News, too) and praise some of what Obama did as President. However, even Team Obama knows he hasn't done enough net good to run on his record, so they resort to the usual smears and dirty politics that catapulted him from obscurity into the White House.

If anyone thinks that Democrats and Republicans in Washington work for us instead of their lobbyists, consider how “Rachel from Cardholder Services” has been tormenting Americans for years, placing what is likely billions of robocalls, despite the National Do Not Call Registry—that's just toothless legislation. Without loopholes purposely given to companies whose lobbyists bribe our politicians into screwing us Left and Right, “Rachel” and others of her ilk would have been fined and sued out of existence long ago. Our leaders refuse to stop “Rachel,” but if you sell an item at a garage sale that wasn't manufactured to be perfectly safe, heaven help you if the feds get ahold of you! George W. Bush signed that into law. Thanks.

The most notable accomplishment of our politicians has been to take the United States, seemingly destined to be the world's indomitable economic superpower, and inflict considerably more damage upon its future than all of our past and present enemies combined, including Germany and Japan in World War II, the USSR during the Cold War, Islamic terrorists, and everyone convicted of treason in U.S. history. All of those enemies combined couldn't begin to deliver the KO blow that our liberal and conservative politicians have given to present and future Americans. The Left wants to blame the Right, and the Right wants to blame the Left, but neither side could have done it alone. We live in a profoundly sick society in which most people cheer politicians and send them back to Washington when they should be sending them to jail.

Shout racist if you are losing the debate

Media Matters and their troll followers (who believe that repeating lies makes them true) attacked me because I wrote an article criticizing one of their sacred cows, who seemed to still possess some tinges of racism. Moreover, as her racial antipathy waned, she seemed to replace it with a realization that the real enemy wasn't white folks but rich folks. I've yet to see any correlation or inverse correlation between how much money someone has and how good he or she is, so I am opposed to classifying or denigrating people on the basis of their bank accounts, skin color, ethnicity, gender preference, or anything but their individuality (i.e., their character).

Furthermore, as a physician with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, I know that your mood, empathy, intelligence, creativity, and other facets of your individuality are potentially much more resplendent than you likely imagine. Thus, if you or your doctor knew more about how to unlock your potential, you could be a markedly better person than you are. Therefore, buried inside most of us is a kernel of greatness that rarely blossoms to its full potential. In our eagerness to snipe at others and behave like crabs in a bucket, we rarely see that the imperfections we lambaste in others are quite likely reflective of their suboptimal nutritional, lifestyle, and other factors. Doctors do not fault diabetics who do wacky things when their blood sugar levels are out of whack, so why should we fault others whose behavior is adversely affected by a neurochemical milieu that is less than ideal?

If I were racist, why would I jump for joy if Dr. Ben Carson were President and Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory were Vice President? Because they are black? No, because I agree with them on most topics, and even when I don't, I know their good hearts and minds led them to conclusions I don't share because reasonable minds can differ.

While I've become more liberal since I wrote that article, I do not disagree with my original premise: that promoting class warfare is needlessly divisive and unjustifiable. Rather than trying to refute my criticisms of her, Media Matters employed their usual ad hominem attacks and character assassination by alleging that I am a racist. How utterly predictable in this political climate in which people on the Left and Right search their quivers for weapons to attack opponents. When that quiver is empty of good methods, they often resort to flimsy charges of racism. The single heroic thing I recall doing was when I went out of my way and risked my future to save the life of a young black man. A racist wouldn't have helped him. Nor would a racist spend months, as I have, researching and writing about the Japanese atrocities circa World War II.

In an upcoming book, I will demonstrate how charges from the Lying Left were baseless and how only lazy birdbrains would believe them after seeing the whole truth—not the tidbits selected by Media Matters for their woefully one-sided smear. I proposed a practical and effective instant cure for racism many years before race became a hot political issue, and I've exposed how some healthcare practitioners engage in racial hate crimes by either intentionally murdering patients or not giving needed care, all because the patient has a different skin color. That is reprehensible, so I wrote about it. A real racist would revel in such discrimination, not report it and criticize it as I did, so anyone who wants to depict me as a racist is either an idiot, smear merchant, or too lazy to let facts get in the way of half-baked opinions.

Media Matters grossly distorted my opinion on Native Americans by writing that I claimed they “should have been grateful for their subjugation by whites.” That's absurd and a good example of their carelessness. I am part black and part Native American, so to suggest that I or my ancestors should be grateful for their subjugation is pure lunacy. Every ethical historian acknowledges that subjugation was one of the most abominable acts in history, and I strongly condemned it in writing (in one of my books and websites) long before I learned of my Native American ancestry.

Consistent with their shoot from the hip mentality, Media Matters ignored that writing of mine and instead twisted what I wrote in a blog posting, suggesting I thought they should be “grateful for their subjugation” when I was merely stating they should be grateful for opportunities afforded to them in the United States. There is a world of difference between being grateful for opportunities and grateful for subjugation. Anyone who cannot detect this glaring difference is manifesting his stupidity or reckless irresponsibility as a journalist to get his facts straight before opening his mouth.

I think that everyone, including myself and other Native Americans, should be grateful for the opportunities and technology in the U.S. I absolutely love Native American dress, their reverence of nature and historically simple lifestyle, but I also appreciate modern opportunities and technology. I am certainly not a Luddite, but I think too many Americans are too enamored with technology and especially the Internet, which reduces their absorption with real people in the real world. But, by and large, I am immensely grateful for American opportunities and technology. Who isn't? Unabomber Ted Kaczynski and other proponents of anarcho-primitivism.

As I mentioned in an article, I am proud of the fact that one of my relatives cofounded the New York Anti-Slavery Society, and another relative, Chester Alan Arthur, President of the United States from 1881 to 1885, was raised in an abolitionist home and later practiced law in New York, where he ably and commendably defended the civil rights of slaves.

Media Matters and their followers behave like Nazis in ruthlessly attacking people who do not march in lockstep with their ideas. If they were more concerned with their effectiveness than regaling in the freedom to smear, they would do well to emulate one of my friends, a liberal who changed my mind on one of the big issues that divides conservatives and liberals. To persuade me, he didn't need to use any heated rhetoric or twist my words; he simply stated his opinion in such a compelling way that I think he would change the mind of anyone who is intelligent and genuinely cares about other people. As my best friend can attest, I couldn't stop talking about him for days thereafter; I was in awe of how he changed my opinion that was seemingly cast in stone. Interestingly, as I echoed his unassailable logic, my best friend, a staunch conservative, changed her mind, too, becoming more liberal in the process. By using similar means of persuasion, I was able to reverse her opinion on various matters so she did a 180 in transforming from steadfastly conservative to liberal. Changing hearts and minds is indeed possible.

Anyone with half a brain who reads my writings can tell that I am adamantly opposed to subjugation or anything that smacks of might makes right. The world wisely remembers the Holocaust, but even most learned individuals are ignorant of the fact that Japan committed far more war crimes than Germany before and during World War 2, including crimes against humanity that surpassed the depravity of most Nazi atrocities. For example, Japanese soldiers raped and sexually mutilated many Asian women, from young girls to grandmothers. Their Emperor Hirohito was the Casey Anthony of his day who got away with murder. Hirohito's armed forces did things that made Germans seem downright civilized, as I documented in two articles on Japanese war crimes and Hirohito: the war criminal who got off scot-free.

Some of my Asian friends think (and I agree) that what Hirohito's men did to people in China and other Asian nations warrants outrage commensurate with that evoked by the Holocaust, but what do we get instead? An American President (Ford) so ignorant of history that he warmly welcomed Hirohito during a visit to The White House for a state dinner on October 2nd 1975.

John Demjanjuk, a low-ranking German prison guard, was repeatedly put on trial. “In a case of mistaken identity, his conviction for crimes against humanity was later overturned by the Israeli Supreme Court in 1993 due to a finding of reasonable doubt based on evidence suggesting that Demjanjuk was not "Ivan the Terrible".” After over two decades of intermittent legal proceedings, Demjanjuk, then aged 91, was convicted by a German court.

Demjanjuk's crimes cannot begin to compare in extent with those of Hirohito, who evidently thought that Japan had a God-given right to brutalize Asian people as part of his campaign to make them get on their knees. Hirohito plundered their assets and was the supreme ruler of Japan when it used lethal force to control people in other nations, from their soldiers to civilians, including infants who were raped and murdered. Had Japan invaded the United States, you can bet they would not have been any kinder to American civilians, including infants. They referred to Americans as “kichiku (mongrel beast or mongrelized apes).

Hirohito promulgated the notion that he was a God; specifically, he claimed to descend from a Sun Goddess, and as such an exalted deity, he didn't lose any sleep over the crushing of innocent men, women, and children in other Asian nations; they were just peons (in his twisted mind) to be harvested to feed his monumental ego and countrymen who felt entitled to be as savage as they wanted in their pursuit of their dreams of conquest. One need only look at today's Japanese people, and the ones immediately following the war, to know they are not inherently evil; their prior evil stemmed from their depraved leadership filling their minds with execrable thoughts and exhorting them to commit loathsome deeds.

My point is not that Demjanjuk and other German soldiers should be given a pass for their war crimes, but if we're going to hound some of them for decades, we should be equally energetic in prosecuting Japanese war crimes. In my opinion, the failure to do that manifests a racist viewpoint that somehow the suffering of Asian people matters less than the suffering of those targeted by Nazis.

“Because of the Internet, anonymous sociopaths can now smear and bully anyone they want. We all know people who make millions of dollars simply by defaming other people. The First Amendment is in place to protect the rights of Americans, but free speech can be abused; slander is real; bullying is real; inflicting pain on others through words is real. With the rise of the Net, cowardly sociopaths are running wild, with hateful invective, outrageous smears, and bullying tactics. It's not just about free speech anymore; it's about personal destruction.”
— Bill O'Reilly
