Why the Left Loathes Western Civilization

Tuesday, Apr 26, 2016

This month, Stanford University students voted on a campus resolution that would have their college require a course on Western civilization, as it did until the 1980s. Stanford students rejected the proposal 1,992 to 347. A columnist at the Stanford Daily explained why: Teaching Western civilization means “upholding white supremacy, capitalism and colonialism, and all other oppressive systems that flow from Western civilizations.” The vote — and the column — encapsulated the left’s view: In Europe, Latin America and America, it loathes Western...

Do Jews, Christians and Muslims Believe in the Same God?

Tuesday, Apr 19, 2016

Most Americans say they believe in God. Around the world, religious Jews, Christians and Muslims say they believe in God, as do many people who do not identify with any formal religion. But this statement is actually meaningless. To cite one example, the God in whose name some Muslim extremists cut innocent peoples’ throats and violate women cannot be the same God as the God of those who believe God condemns such actions. Who then argues that all those who say they believe in God believe in the same God? Two groups make this argument. The first consists of people who have an...

Calls for American Unity Are Either Dishonest or Naive

Tuesday, Apr 12, 2016

Just about all candidates for president regularly announce their intent to unite Americans, to “bring us together.” It’s a gimmick. If they are sincere, they are profoundly naive; if they are just muttering sweet nothings in order to seduce Americans to vote for them, they are manipulative. In his acceptance speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, John Kerry, one of the most polarizing figures in modern American political history, said, “Maybe some just see us divided into those red states and blue states, but I see us as one America: red, white and...

A Note to Conservatives Who Are Secular

Tuesday, Apr 5, 2016

The most profound thinkers in America are conservative. There are, of course, bright liberal and leftist thinkers, but I can’t think of one who approaches the depth and wisdom of the best conservative writers and thinkers. What liberal historian, for example, approaches the understanding of life and history that author Paul Johnson has exhibited in his many works of history? Who on the left matches psychiatrist/writer Theodore Dalrymple’s insight into the underclass? What left-wing columnists understand human nature, the state of mankind, or contemporary America as do George Will,...

He’s Mean, but Is He at Least Bright?

Tuesday, Mar 29, 2016
2016-03-26T191537Z_1_LYNXNPEC2P0DF_RTROPTP_3_USA-ELECTION-TRUMP

I have said from the outset that I would vote for Donald Trump if he were chosen as the Republican nominee. I am contemptuous of much of what he does; I don’t trust what he says, and I have no reason to believe that he actually holds conservative values. But, if Trump becomes the GOP nominee, he will be the only alternative to the left ruining America for another four years. Really, though, their ruining could go on for much longer than four years. With two or three more left-wing Supreme Court justices, the left wouldn’t need to win the presidency or Congress in order to...

Judge Garland and the Left’s Disdain for Truth

The mainstream media — that is, the liberal media — share all the views and characteristics of the left. Among these is the left’s view of truth. There are honest individuals with left-wing views, and dishonest individuals on the right. But truth is not a leftist value. Everything the left believes in is more important than truth: social justice, economic equality, reducing carbon emissions, expanding the power of the state, battling sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, racism, and above all of these, destroying its conservative opposition. The media’s coverage of...

The Left May Well Get Trump Nominated

Tuesday, Mar 15, 2016

This past Friday, a left-wing mob shut down a Donald Trump rally in Chicago. Most Americans viewing what happened saw it for what it was — another left-wing assault on the speech of those with whom they differ and on traditional American civility. Not surprisingly, the media reporting has concentrated overwhelmingly on Trump for incendiary and inexcusable comments he has made at some of his other rallies that were disrupted by protesters. For example, he offered to pay any legal bills incurred by a man in the audience who sucker-punched a protester as he was being led out of a Trump...

The World Is Getting Worse, But This Time America Won’t Save It

Tuesday, Mar 8, 2016

I cannot imagine any thinking person who does not believe the world is getting worse. The number of slaughtered and the number of refugees from slaughter is immense and growing. Islamic State now controls territories from Afghanistan to West Africa. Libya is in the process of being added to that list. And other sadistic Islamist movements hold additional territory. According to Pew Research, approximately 10 percent of world Muslims have a favorable opinion of the Islamic State and terror against civilians. That’s more than 100 million people. The Iranian regime has just increased the...

Gratuitous Hatred Is Destroying Republicans — Just as in Ancient Israel

Tuesday, Mar 1, 2016

I have been a radio talk show host for 33 years, nationally syndicated for 18. I have never experienced anything similar to what I am experiencing now. Until recently, the only hate mail I ever received was from a small number people on the left. The major reason for this, I am convinced, is that I don’t yell at callers and I treat callers who disagree with respect. Reading my emails these days is a brand new experience. I receive hate mail, sometimes laced with obscenities, from Republicans. Most come from Donald Trump supporters, even though whenever I explain my opposition to Trump,...

Male Sexual Nature and the Left’s Culture of Denial

Tuesday, Feb 23, 2016

On New Year’s Eve in Cologne, Germany, more than 400 German women were sexually attacked and at least three raped by gangs of male immigrants, most of them from Arab countries. There are two truths that need to be confronted, but because we live in the Age of Denial of Unpleasant Truths, they won’t be. One is the denial of the low view of women in the Arab Middle East and many other parts of the Muslim world. This denial is the product of multiculturalist moral relativism, which posits that no culture or value system is morally superior to any other. The other denial concerns the...
