Tomorrow night is Rosh Hashana, one of the two High HoIy Days of Judaism, or “Days of Awe,” as they are called in Hebrew. The other High Holy Day, nine days later, is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Just as there are many Christians who only go to church on Christmas and Easter, there […]
The post What Will Your Rabbi Talk About This Week?...
What is the difference between a leftist and a liberal? Answering this question is vital to understanding the crisis facing America and the West today. Yet few seem able to do it. I offer the following as a guide. Here’s the first thing to know: The two have almost nothing in common. On the contrary, […]
The post Leftism Is Not Liberalism appeared...
For those unfamiliar with the term, Marranos was the name given to Jews in medieval Spain, especially in the fifteenth century during the Spanish Inquisition, who secretly maintained their Judaism while living as Catholics in public. There is, of course, no Spanish Inquisition in America today – no one is being tortured into confessing what […]
All my life, I have known this rule about people: Those who don’t fight the greatest evils will fight lesser evils or make-believe evils.This happens to be the morally defining characteristic of the left. During the Cold War, many liberals and nearly all conservatives fought communism, but the left fought anti-communism. The left opposed American...
“Our leading media” are characterized by “indefensibly corrupt manipulations of language repeated incessantly.” Patrick Lawrence in The Nation, Aug. 9, 2017, on the media’s reporting of the alleged collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia To understand America’s crises today, one must first understand what...
I am writing this column to inform readers of some good news. The sustained efforts of individuals, organizations and the media who oppose everything people like me stand for — America as an exceptional nation among the nations of the world; the unique contribution of the Judeo-Christian value system in shaping America and the best […]
Bret Stephens devoted his New York Times column last week to admonishing me for my tweet from two weeks ago and critiquing my follow-up column last week explaining the tweet. The tweet reads, “The news media in the West pose a far greater danger to Western civilization than Russia does.” Since he wrote the column […]
The post My Response to...
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: –“F— you.” –“Move to Russia.”...
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.
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, therefore, the...
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...
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.
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 simply like...
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...
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 c*** holster,” and “You’re turning into a real prick-tator.”
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, this...
