"Antifa" is to violence what the Southern Poverty Law Center is to words. In short, it is a hate group on the left (https://www.prageru.com/courses/political-science/anti-hate-group-hate-group).
The SPLC smears individuals and groups it differs with by labeling them as some form of "hater": "racist," "white supremacist," "extremist" and the ...Read more
As I have documented repeatedly, the left ruins just about everything it touches: the universities, the arts, the elementary schools and high schools, religion, sports and ordinary, everyday interactions between human beings -- especially human beings of different races. The latest examples -- in just the last few weeks -- are the Boy Scouts, ...Read more
The original slogan of Google was "Don't be evil." When Google changed its corporate name to Alphabet in 2015, it changed the slogan to "Do the right thing."
If it were to be true to its values, Google should have changed its slogan from "Don't be evil" to "Don't fight evil."
Here is The New York Times report from this past Friday: "Google, ...Read more
If you want to understand the moral sickness at the heart of leftism, read the first paragraph of the most recent column by Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne:
"It's never right to call other human beings 'animals.' It's not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior of a given individual or group, no matter...Read more
"Cornell Student Presents Senior Thesis in Her Underwear"
The most remarkable thing about that headline is that not one reader will think it's a joke. That, my friends, is further proof of the low esteem in which most Americans hold our universities.
The left has rendered our universities, in the description of Harvard professor Steven Pinker,...Read more
There is more knowledge available today than ever before in history. But few would argue people are wiser than ever before.
On the contrary, many of us would argue that we are living in a particularly foolish time -- a period that is largely wisdom-free, especially among those with the most knowledge: the best educated.
The fact that one of ...Read more
The dominant force in America and many other Western countries today is fear of the left.
This is a result of the fact that the most dynamic religion of the past 100 years has been neither Christianity nor Islam. It has been leftism. Whoever does not recognize this does not understand the contemporary world.
Leftism -- in its incarnations, ...Read more
In my last column I used my recently published book as evidence that The New York Times best-seller list is not a best-seller list.
I pointed out that the book, "The Rational Bible: Exodus," the first volume of my commentary on the first five books of the Bible (the Torah), did not appear on The New York Times best-seller list even though it ...Read more
About half the American people do not believe the mainstream media tell the truth. They believe the media are more interested in promoting their left-wing views than reporting the truth.
I am, I note with sadness, a member of that half.
Here is but one more example: The New York Times best-seller list.
As a writer (who, for the record, had a ...Read more
The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism -- not liberalism -- is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the left touches it ruins.
So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the left and the Democratic Party:
The most obvious -- and, therefore, the one more and Americans can resonate ...Read more
Many years ago, I attended a dinner at a wealthy man's New York City condo with, among others, one of the most prominent and influential conservatives in American life. I admired this man then and I admire him now (he has since passed on). He was a major force for good in America.
At one point, the subjects of God and religion came up, and I ...Read more
Some years ago, I wrote a column about adultery and politicians. In light of the Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal interviews concerning their alleged (and probable) affairs with President Donald Trump, it is time to revisit the subject.
I do not agree with those -- right or left, religious or secular -- who contend that adultery invalidates a ...Read more
