Modern art has become obsessed with identity politics at the expense of beauty and form.

Least surprising thing ever

LMAO. I told you this fraud was to the left of Hillary on most things, but you wouldn’t listen.

A Frida Kahlo painting kept in the dark – literally – for 60 years is set for auction at Sotheby’s next week.

Hamilton’s Broadway success proves a boon for tiny Caribbean island of Nevis

LOL. So for those keeping track so far: we’re not repealing Obamacare, we’re not ripping up the Iran deal, we’re not prosecuting Hillary (“I don’t want to hurt them. They’re good people.”), the ‘wall’ is actually going to be more of a fence, and we’re not reining in spending. If only someone had warned you guys.

Liberals miss this by being illiberal. They shame not just the racists and sexists who deserve it but all who disagree. A 64-year-old Southern woman not onboard with marriage equality finds herself characterized as a hateful boob. Never mind that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton weren’t themselves onboard just five short years ago.
