Unless you are brainwashed, you regard the statements "men give birth" and "defund the police" as absurd. Why, then, do leftists (as opposed to liberals and conservatives) say these things and even believe them? I think there are two -- related -- explanations.
One is that the Left seeks to tear down every normative institution. If men give ...Read more
Here's a joke: "Every girl is bi. You just have to figure out if it's polar or sexual."
This joke was retweeted last week by Dave Weigel, a Washington Post reporter. He retweeted it because he thought it was funny. He thought it was funny because it is. But, of course, unless a joke is at the expense of straight, white males, such humor is ...Read more
There is a reason nearly everyone is familiar with the saying, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." The reason is, of course, that it is true and therefore it helps explain why there is so much evil.
Take the 20th century, the bloodiest century on record, in which about 100 million people -- all noncombatants -- were murdered by ...Read more
If an American president has ever given as mendacious, anti-American and hate-filled a speech as President Joe Biden did in Buffalo, New York, last week, I am not familiar with it. Nor are you.
Biden used the terrible mass shooting of black people in a Buffalo grocery store to smear America, divide Americans and foment race-based hatred. A ...Read more
During a recent broadcast, I said that once Elon Musk takes control of Twitter, "Twitter will be flooded with hate, and a lot of it will come from people on the Left who want to show how hate-filled it is. It's like their race-hoax industry. If you see a noose on a college dorm of a black student, the odds are overwhelming that the noose was put...Read more
The West has gone through many eras -- the so-called Dark Ages, the Renaissance, the Age of Reason, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Age and the Post-Modern. The present era is the Age of the Absurd.
In terms of the absurdities the cultural elites believe, and have convinced masses of people to believe, there has never been a time like today. ...Read more
A few months ago, for the first time in the history of La Canada, California, a city just west of Pasadena and the home of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a new branch of a renowned Jewish institution opened. La Canada had previously lacked a synagogue or any other Jewish institution for a simple reason: few Jews live there.
But that never ...Read more
On the eve of Passover, on Good Friday, The New York Times published an opinion piece on God, the Bible and Passover. This would not be noteworthy except for the fact that the piece mocked all three.
The two titles of the piece (one in the print edition and one for the Times' digital edition) will give you a good idea of the tenor of the piece:...Read more
As I have documented on a number of occasions, the Left ruins everything it touches. There is no exception. From universities to high schools and now including even elementary schools, to late-night TV, to sports, to the arts and, increasingly, science, the Left is a destruction machine.
And nowhere is this damage more evident or tragic than ...Read more
The second of my two sons got married last week, and it prompted me to consider the question: What brings parents more joy: their child getting into a prestigious college or their child getting married (presumably to a good person)?
Three things prompted this question: my joy and pride, the joy of those who attended the wedding and the number ...Read more
