Lone Conservative Weekly: May 23


Sunday, May 23, 2021

Dear readers, 

We hope you are enjoying your weekend. 

This week the Israeli-Palestinian conflict continued to capture the attention of the American press. As Hamas launches rockets indiscriminately towards Israeli cities, Israel is forced to defend itself. Nevertheless, left-wing Democrats choose to ignore Hamas’ acts of terror, while unjustifiably condemning Israeli self-defense. Lone Conservative contributor Sean Preston explains the predicament Israel faces as it responds to terrorist attacks and criticism from abroad.

As students wrap up their spring classes and look ahead to the fall semester, many are hoping for a return to the normal college experience that they signed up for. Many universities, unfortunately, are looking to maintain the unnecessary status quo of masking, mandating vaccines, and even remote learning. Lone Conservative contributor Jack Applewhite examines his student perspective on these issues in his article Expectations for Next Semester. 

The ongoing controversy about whether or not Catholic bishops will admit pro-abortion politicians to Communion has gained another voice. Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA), a Catholic, spoke out against the bishops discussing what the approach should be going forward. Ed. Condon over at The Pillar shared his thoughts on that and other news, including Prince Harry’s asinine comment on the First Amendment in his weekly Friday Pillar Post.

Last week, we at Lone Conservative said farewell to our founder Kassy Dillon as she stepped down from her role as President of Lone Conservative. Taking the reins now is Joseph Chalfant of Texas State University. If you haven’t yet read it, take a moment to read Joe’s letter of gratitude to Kassy in which he also adumbrates his “ambitious, yet necessary vision for the future” of Lone Conservative “America’s largest conservative student commentary site.”
