An open letter to Megan Rapinoe from a naturalized citizen

First, I want to congratulate you, you are living example of what the American dream is about. You are female and you have broken a glass ceiling in a male dominated industry. Megan, you are an amazing athlete without a doubt, nobody is taking that away from you. However, you complain often about inequality in United States and use your platform to be entitled, hateful and disrespect the United States flag and national anthem, symbols that represents opportunity, freedom to voice dissent, freedom to gather, freedom to worship how you see fit or to not worship at all, valor, innocence, perseverance, sacrifice and justice. So...

The Painful Circle of Anti-Semitism

The Painful Circle of Anti-Semitism

To many Jewish Americans, the term “anti-Semitism” is synonymous with the hard-right of American politics.

The Left’s New McCarthyism: Racism Has Been Weaponized

“At long last, have you no sense of decency?” With those words, and in full view of the American people, Senate Legal Counsel Joseph Nye Welch proceeded to expose the reckless destruction of Joe McCarthy and the era of McCarthyism. As Wisconsin’s junior senator, Joseph McCarthy cynically and recklessly exploited legitimate Cold War concerns over possible communist influence and infiltration of our institutions as his own personal cudgel. Over time, McCarthy came to accuse anyone who opposed him and his aggressive tactics of being a communist sympathizer. In doing so, the test he applied to identify communist and “enemies of...
