Hollow Globalism Drives Ilhan Omar’s Politics of Affectation

“The world,” “the planet,” and “other nations” get a lot of mentions in the speeches of newly elected members of Congress such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). Each of them focuses on what can be done globally, usually at the expense of the United States. This calls into question […]

Ignoring Socialism’s Countless Corpses

An old joke goes like this: Q. What did socialists use before candles? A. Electricity. I’m sure the people of Venezuela aren’t laughing. But as the people of this once-prosperous country scrounge for food in trash bags and go without electricity and running water, some in our own country seriously sing the praises of socialism. […]

Student Council

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wants your teenager to vote for president. That’s right. They seriously want kids to go to the polls. Of course, they’ll have to go alone, because they’re not allowed to drive their friends. These are pupils who, as even their teachers admit, have a terrible education in civics. (Leave aside […]

Britain’s War on Christianity

The unlawful arrest of a Christian street preacher in London has drawn attention to the continuing use of hate speech laws to silence Christians in multicultural Britain—even as incendiary speech by Muslim extremists is routinely ignored.

Captain Marvel’s War on Women

Art imitates life, but to an even greater extent, life imitates art. Like culture and politics, the two are intertwined in an infinite feedback loop.

Tucker Carlson and the Apology Factory

Fans of TV’s “Seinfeld” will recall an episode titled “The Apology,” in which George Costanza nearly loses his mind (OK, that happened in almost every episode) because he doesn’t receive an apology he thinks he rightfully deserves. During the course of the episode, George learns that a former childhood friend, Jason Hanky, is going through […]

Defender of the Faith

Since World War II, the war against Christianity that began in the Enlightenment has intensified across the globe. Every day, 11 Christians are killed, three-quarters of them in Muslim majority countries. In western European nations, Christians are marginalized, ignored, and mocked even as Muslim sensibilities and illiberal practices are carefully protected. And in the United […]

How Do You Solve a Problem Like Rashida?

Upon her accession to the U.S. House of Representatives last fall, practically the first words out of Rashida Tlaib’s mouth were: “We’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherf—er.” The object of the freshman Michigan Democrat’s derision was, of course, President Trump. This sentiment naturally got whoops and cheers from […]

Waging War Against the Dead

The 21st century is in danger of becoming an era of statue smashing and historical erasure. Not since the iconoclasts of the Byzantine Empire or the epidemic of statue destruction during the French Revolution has the world seen anything like the current war on the past. In 2001, the primeval Taliban blew up two ancient […]
