A few months ago, I noticed that my published column spelled "black" "Black." As I had submitted the column with "black" spelled with a lower case "b," I contacted my editor to find out why what I had written was changed. She responded that the syndicate was following the Associated Press' rules of style, a common practice in journalism and book...Read more
All of my life, I have said that the left's moral compass is broken.
And all of my life, I was wrong.
Why I was wrong explains both the left and the moral crisis we are in better than almost any other explanation.
I was wrong because in order to have a broken moral compass, you need to have a moral compass to begin with. But the left doesn't ...Read more
As long ago as the 1970s, I came to a major realization. While watching fellow students at Columbia University demonstrate not just against the war in Vietnam but against America -- "Amerika," as many spelled it, the "imperialist," "colonialist," "mass-murdering" country -- I kept wondering what made these people so hostile to the freest country...Read more
Four months ago, I wrote a column titled "The Worldwide Lockdown May Be the Greatest Mistake in History." I explained that "'mistake' and 'evil' are not synonyms. The lockdown is a mistake; the Holocaust, slavery, communism, fascism, etc., were evils. Massive mistakes are made by arrogant fools; massive evils are committed by evil people."
On the day Barack Obama was inaugurated in January 2009, I announced on my national radio show that, "While I did not vote for Barack Obama, he is my president, and I wish him well." I added that I was delighted a black man had been elected president of the United States, that perhaps this would not only help black-white relations get even ...Read more
More than two years ago, I wrote a column titled "Whatever the Left Touches It Ruins." I listed eight examples: the universities; the arts - music, art and architecture; sports; mainstream Judaism, Protestantism and Catholicism; race relations; women's happiness; children's innocence; and, perhaps most disturbingly, America's commitment to free ...Read more
Americans have long been proud of the fact that, unlike European countries, America never went the route of totalitarianism as embodied in communism, fascism and Nazism.
This achievement may be coming to an end.
In order to understand why, it is first necessary to understand why European countries embraced -- or fell victim to -- totalitarian ...Read more
What are the two most hated countries in the world?
America and Israel.
Who hates both America and Israel?
The left (and Islamists).
And why is that? Why does the left (not liberals, the left) hate America and Israel?
In "Why the Jews; The Reason for Antisemitism," a book I co-authored with Rabbi Joseph Telushkin in 1983 (the latest ...Read more
If you take black and white left-wing rhetoric seriously, blacks are not human beings like members of other races. They are first and foremost black; they are human beings defined before anything else by their color -- not their humanity, their personality, their character, their mind or their heart. So much so that, according to white and black...Read more
The left-wing charge that America is a racist country is the greatest national libel since the Blood Libel against the Jews. America is, in fact, the least racist multiracial, multiethnic country in world history.
Neither the claim that America is a racist society nor the claim that it is the least racist country can be empirically proven. Both...Read more
According to the make-believe world of the left, we are experiencing a great moment in American racial history. For the first time, the story goes, more whites than ever are coming to realize how racist America is, how racist cops are and how systemically racist everything in America is. Only now do many Americans understand just how racist ...Read more
