We could create an entire political philosophy based on the genius of Greg Gutfeld. Oh wait, we did. In our latest podcast, we talk to Gutfeld about his new book, How to Be Right: The Art of Being Persuasively Correct. Be sure to buy a copy or five.
On Thursday's The Five, Greg Gutfeld had a great monologue on embracing the tools needed to fight terrorism. Following his monologue, the panel discussed "Islamophobia-phobia" -- the fear of being called Islamophobic or racist. After the shooting in San Bernardino, a neighbor of one of the shooters came forward and said that he saw suspicious behavior, but didn't report it because he was afraid of being called racist.
Our first instinct was to blame the PC culture. I understand the neighbor's fear given how the Left and the media (but I repeat myself) will immediately attack and retaliate against someone who sees something and says something. See Juan Williams. The one thing I can't wrap my head around is publicly coming forward and telling the world "I was afraid of being called a racist, so I didn't say something, then this happened." I'd be too embarrassed by my cowardice and "fear" of being called a name to even think of going on TV.
Let's face it, if you're a conservative, you're going to be called a racist anyway. Why not attempt to save lives and out terrorists in the mean time? A few months ago I wrote about the rise of the beta males after two incidents in which the beta male mentality took over. Maybe we need a Find-An-Alpha-Male app (don't abuse it, ladies). If you're afraid to call in a tip, locate the closest American Alpha Male on the app so he can call in on your behalf. He's been called worse in his life and is still willing to do the right thing.
Instead, we have men who are willing to go on national TV and admit that they fear words more than they value doing the right thing. We need to be vigilant and remember that although the President insists we are not at war with Islam, the reality is Radical Islam is at war with us. Calling the San Bernardino attack as workplace violence is as cowardly as not saying something for fear of being called names.
Terrorism doesn't just happen in Paris, New York and Washington D.C. If it can happen in San Bernardino, it can happen anywhere. We don't know if one call to local authorities would have stopped this from happening, but there's honor in trying. We won't survive in a society that fears name-calling more than terrorism in its own neighborhood.
After the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, there is no doubt that tonight’s debate should focus on national security. However, Democrats know that is a losing issue for them because after identifying their enemies as the NRA, big banks, and Republicans, they have no credibility on addressing this issue.
In her recent Breitbart column, Lisa recaps the latest Political Podcast and shamelessly swoons over TV host Mike Rowe.
[T]he common thread in both the New York Times and National Review explanations of what makes a “modern man” is both writers have strict, unwavering opinions about random things. So, when I saw that Mike Rowe also responded to the New York Times’ article, I spent half our show swooning over him. Rather than identifying as a “modern man,” Rowe identifies as a “man’s man.” That also makes him this woman’s ideal man.

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld wrote, “There is only one person I listen to when it comes to war and the freedom it preserves and protects: Terry Schappert.”
Schappert is a regular on "Red Eye" and "Kennedy" on Fox News, as well as Discovery Channel's "Dude, You're Screwed." He has an impressive military career as an Army Ranger, Green Beret, and in the U.S. Army Special Forces. He is also the author of A Guide to Improvised Weaponry: How to Protect Yourself with WHATEVER You've Got.
We talk to him about politics, winning the War on Terror, pipe smoking and what you need to survive in the woods and in an urban environment. Hint: You also need it for a pipe.

In the latest episode of the Political Punks Podcast, Lisa and Brett talk about the movies that define the last four generations -- Silent, Baby Boomers, Generation X and Millennials.
In the latest episode, we talk to author and former Congressman Thaddeus McCotter. After a weekend in LA, we have the pop culture wars on our mind. Are conservatives really participating? Who is doing it well? What can we do better?
