Last week, I tweeted, "The news media in the West pose a far greater danger to Western civilization than Russia does."
To my surprise, the tweet went viral. And while there were more likes than dislikes, 99 percent of the written reactions were negative.
Typical reactions were:
--"Move to Russia."
--"Your very full diapers ...Read more
Last week, The Atlantic rendered a great service to those of us who contend that America is in the midst of a civil war between the right and the left. It provided a smoking gun -- actually, the gunshot itself -- to those of us who contend that the left (never to be confused with liberals) is intent on dismantling Western civilization.
It ...Read more
What would have happened if a Trump supporter had shot a Democratic congressman and other Democratic Washington officials?
The answer is obvious.
The New York Times, the rest of the left-wing media and the Democratic Party would have made the shootings the dominant issue in American life. It is not possible to understand the left -- and, ...Read more
As I document in my book "Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph," which is an explanation of Americanism, leftism and Islamism, hysteria is a major tactic of the left.
If you think about it, there is never an extended period of time -- one year, let's say -- during which society is not engulfed by a hysteria ...Read more
Writers never know when something they write will strike a nerve -- or, in the common phrase of the internet, "go viral."
Yet my last column, "Why Conservatives Still Attack Trump" did both. Aside from being reprinted on almost every conservative website, Newsweek published the column, and The New York Times quoted it.
More importantly, many ...Read more
When people you know well, admire, and who share your values do something you strongly oppose, you have two options:
1) Cease admiring them or 2) try to understand them and change their minds.
In the case of my conservative friends who still snipe (or worse) at President Trump, I have rejected option one. The reason -- beside the fact that I ...Read more
The number of foolish statements made by men and women who consider themselves feminists is essentially equal to the number of people who strongly identify as feminists.
I write "strongly identify" because if asked, "Are you a feminist?" most women will say yes.
They will do so for two reasons. One is that there is no social price paid for ...Read more
In a monologue considered witty by teenagers, teenagers in adult bodies and those who hate President Trump, CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert said about President Trump, "The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin's cock holster," and "You're turning into a real prick-tator."
Witty? Not to many of us. And not just not ...Read more
In a recent column, I made the case that Americans are fighting the Second Civil War. The deep chasm that has opened up between the left -- not liberals, the left -- and the rest of the country is so wide and so unbridgeable that there is no other way to describe what is happening. But I noted that at least thus far, unlike the First Civil War, ...Read more
Now that student mobs at universities around America (and elsewhere in the West) have silenced conservative speaker after conservative speaker, it has dawned on a small number of left-wing professors that the public is beginning to have contempt for the universities. As a result, a handful of academics at a handful of universities have signed ...Read more
