This week, The New York Times published a column by a left-wing academic (forgive the redundancy), John Della Volpe, director of polling at the Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics.
In his first sentence, Mr. Della Volpe reveals his politics.
He described young Americans as "stressed and sickened by thoughts of their rights and ...Read more
In a recent Fireside Chat -- my weekly podcast for PragerU, half of which is dedicated to my taking questions from (mostly) young people around the world -- a young man in his 20s asked how he was supposed to figure out who is telling the truth and who isn't. He was undoubtedly speaking for millions of his peers. Given the opposing positions one...Read more
Let's begin with an indisputable fact. What Kanye West, aka Ye, is saying about Jews is antisemitic. Why? Because "the Jews run everything" is pure libel. That's why Jews are not paranoid in being deeply troubled by such sentiments. If widely believed, they will almost inevitably lead to persecution of Jews.

I am writing this column in Burlington, Vermont. It is my seventh city in eight days. From my hometown of Los Angeles, I flew to Orlando, followed by Atlanta, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chicago and now Burlington.

Less obvious but equally significant is that they have never been ...Read more
As most Americans now realize, America is experiencing a societal breakdown. This should be obvious to anyone, even those facilitating this breakdown as they openly acknowledge they seek to break down American society.
This is a society that teaches its youngest citizens a suicidal lie: that America was founded in 1619, that it was built on ...Read more
A couple of weeks ago, the New York Times published a photo of what I had reason to believe was an elementary school classroom. I couldn't help but notice a big, colorful sign in the classroom that read, "The World Is A Better Place With You In It."
Using an example of it being a fifth-grade classroom, I said to my radio audience that I thought...Read more
