Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Calling terror terror at UNC

As one of the premier initiatives of the Patrick Henry Center’s mission, we have been seeking to foster conservative political action among conscientious students on campuses across the country. It just so happens that one of those schools is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill—which we chose for its notorious promotion of “politically correct” policies above free speech and intellectual diversity. Unfortunately, it has become notorious for something much more harrowing in recent days. In an obvious case of terrorism, a Muslim alumnus of the school attempted to run down and kill a large crowd of students in a popular meeting area on campus.

However, the school’s hard-left, P.C. mentality has not allowed the chancellor to provide a sufficient response to the incident. Indeed, he will still not even acknowledge the heinous act as one of terrorism!
