If a Trump Supporter Had Shot a Democratic Congressman

Tuesday, Jun 20, 2017

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 media and the current state of American life — without understanding how the left uses and relies on hysteria. Hysteria is to the left as oxygen is to biological life. From the moment Donald Trump was elected president, America has...

What Happened to the Hysteria About Trump-Induced Anti-Semitism?

Thursday, Jun 15, 2017

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 induced by the left. The mother of them all is global warming, or “climate change,” as the left has come to call it (because the warming was not quite enough to induce widespread panic). Hysterics like billionaires Al Gore...

A Response to My Conservative Critics About Trump

Tuesday, Jun 6, 2017

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 major conservative writers responded to it, mostly in disagreement. It is interesting that the column elicited so much attention. Maybe, like the man who bit the dog, an articulate case by a mainstream conservative in support...

Why Conservatives Still Attack Trump

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

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 many of them — is what I refer to as “moral bank accounts.” Every time we do good, we make a deposit into our moral bank account. And every time we do something bad, we make a withdrawal. These conservatives have made so...

Feminism and Intelligence

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

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 saying that one is a feminist, while there can be a huge price paid — on a college campus, for example — for saying that one is not a feminist. The other is that a great number of women define feminism as “belief in...

From Johnny Carson to Stephen Colbert

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

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.” Witty? Not to many of us. And not just not witty but obscene, which is particularly disturbing because it was broadcast on network television, not cable television. But more than anything, it exemplified a trend in American life that one could identify...

Will the Second Civil War Turn Violent?

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

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 war is not violent. Unfortunately, there is now reason to believe that violence is coming. In fact, it’s already here. But as of now, it’s only coming from one direction. Left-wing thugs engage in violence and threats of...

Two Weeks of Great Clarity

Tuesday, Apr 18, 2017

If you prize clarity, then these past weeks were some of the best in memory. 1. When America leads, the world is better. For the first time in eight years, the allies of America and the world’s decent people celebrated America’s return to leadership. Just about all of them understand that if the United States doesn’t exercise its power, the worst regimes on Earth will. The left claims to care about the downtrodden of the world, but this concern is a moral fraud. The downtrodden the left most care about are American blacks, women and gays. And Palestinians. But these groups...

It’s Time for Conservatives to Celebrate This President

Tuesday, Apr 4, 2017

Do conservatives — or non-leftists, for that matter — appreciate just how terrific Donald Trump has been as president? And how lucky we are that he won the presidency? I don’t know the answer. What I do know is that they ought to be deeply appreciative of him, and deeply grateful for luck or providence, and certainly for Trump himself, that he was elected president. First, it is unlikely that any other Republican would have defeated Hillary Clinton. Second, he has not only surpassed many of our expectations but also thus far governed in a manner more consistent with...

Purists Kill Whatever They Believe In

Tuesday, Mar 28, 2017

According to The New York Times, 10 moderates, 15 conservatives, and eight other Republicans would have voted against the Republican repeal and replace Obamacare bill. So, then, 15 or so conservatives made it impossible to pass the bill favored by nearly every other Republican and by President Donald Trump. If that is the case, what we have here is another conservative example of purism and principle damaging another major opportunity to do good. The first purist conservative example were the Never-Trumpers, who believed it was better for Hillary Clinton to be elected president and for the...
