Why Professors Object to Being Recorded

Tuesday, Feb 21, 2017

After the election of Donald Trump as president, a professor at Orange Coast College in California, Olga Perez Stable Cox, went into an extended hate-rant against the president-elect. Among other things, she described the Trump election as an “act of terrorism,” labelled him a “white supremacist” and called Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence “one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.” And this wasn’t even a political science class in which one might expect political talk, no matter how irresponsible. Stable Cox is a professor of human sexuality. When a student who recorded...

Note to the Left: Four Years Ago, Conservatives Were Just as Depressed

Tuesday, Feb 14, 2017

Here’s a news flash for Democrats and other Americans on the left: Four years ago, when Barack Obama was re-elected president, conservatives were just as depressed as you are now that Hillary Clinton lost and Donald Trump won. I describe this as news because this undoubtedly surprises many of you. You probably never gave a moment’s thought to how depressed conservatives were in 2012. (Why would you? Unlike you, we shun hysteria.) But believe me — we were. Many of us believed that President Obama was doing great damage to America. Now we are convinced that he did more damage...

Audi: The Car for the Unhappy Woman

Tuesday, Feb 7, 2017

In the Audi Super Bowl ad, a male voice in grave tones says: “What do I tell my daughter? “Do I tell that her grandpa is worth more than her grandma? “That her dad is worth more than her mom? “Do I tell her that despite her education, her drive, her skills, her intelligence, she will automatically be valued as less than every man she ever meets? “Or maybe … I’ll be able to tell her something different.” If there was ever a more mendacious or socially destructive ad during the Super Bowl, let alone on television, I am unaware of it. As a believer...

Why My Stepsons’ Father Killed Himself

Tuesday, Jan 31, 2017

Last week, my two stepsons’ father, a man who loved life, killed himself. I would like to tell you why. Two years ago, a 62-year-old father of three named Bruce Graham was standing on an ladder, inspecting his roof for a leak, when it slipped out from under him. He landed on top of the ladder on his back, breaking several ribs, puncturing a lung and tearing his intestine, which wasn’t detected until he went into septic shock. Following surgery, he lapsed into a two-week coma. In retrospect, it’s unfortunate that he awoke from that coma because for all intents and purposes,...

America’s Second Civil War

Tuesday, Jan 24, 2017

It is time for our society to acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its second Civil War. In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically and politically today than they were during the Civil War. For that reason, just as the Great War came to be known as World War I once there was World War II, the Civil War will become known as the First Civil War when more Americans come to regard the current battle as the Second Civil War. This Second Civil War, fortunately, differs in another critically...

Disturbing Lessons from the Chicago Beating

Tuesday, Jan 10, 2017

Last week, four young blacks — two males, both 18 years old; and two females, 18 and 24 years-old — kidnapped a mentally disabled 18-year-old white boy and tortured him for 24 hours. Among other things, they kicked him, beat him, cut his scalp, made him drink from the toilet and made him kiss the floor while saying he loves black people. During the beatings, the suspects yelled out, “F— white people, boy” and “F— Donald Trump.” The victim was found by police on Jan. 3rd. There are five important lessons to be learned from this episode. 1. Even...

Where Have All the Christmas Decorations Gone? A Meditation on Joyless Secularism

Tuesday, Dec 20, 2016

Where I live (near Los Angeles) you can drive for blocks without seeing a single home with Christmas lights, let alone a manger scene or some other religious decoration. And you can drive miles and see fewer than a dozen. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in an area where most residents were either Italian or Jewish. So many homes had Christmas decorations that you could almost be sure that if the home wasn’t decorated, a Jewish family lived in it. And while I was — and remain — a committed Jew, I loved — and still love — those decorated homes. It makes December...

On Men Viewing Women as Sex Objects

Tuesday, Dec 13, 2016

My last column was titled “Is Donald Trump a Misogynist?” After reading reactions throughout the internet, I realize how important it is to elaborate on the subject of how men view women. One of the proofs that higher education makes those who attend college more foolish, more naive and often even more ignorant about life than those who never attended college is the widespread belief among the well-educated that when men sexually objectify women it means that they are misogynists, haters of women. So, here is a list of eight truths about males and sexual objectification for those...

Is Donald Trump a Misogynist?

Tuesday, Dec 6, 2016

You have to marvel at the ease with which our fellow Americans who call themselves progressive label those with whom they differ as sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist and bigoted. I always wonder: Do they believe it? Or do they say it because they lack intellectual arguments? I have come to believe that both are true. As a student of the left since graduate school at the Harriman Institute at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, I am more aware than most people of how old and ubiquitous this mode of attack is. Since Josef Stalin...
