When the Hateful Think They Are the Virtuous

February 11th, 2021 3:28 PM

This week, Virginia Heffernan, a columnist for the Los Angeles Times, unleashed the most perverse column in recent memory. The title: "What can you do about the Trumpites next door?" Heffernan wasn't lamenting neighbors who had tagged her house with pro-Trump graffiti, or who had participated in the Jan. 6 riots, or who had even held an election watch party and turned the music up too…

The Inequality of ‘Equity’

February 3rd, 2021 11:17 PM

President Joe Biden took office pledging a return to unity and decency. A new era of good feelings is at hand, we were informed by both his administration and its sycophants in the media. A new world -- a world of "equity" -- is at hand. Equity, you see, is the word of the day. Not equality -- that would be a traditionally American concept. 

Ben Shapiro Column: This Is Not Normal

January 27th, 2021 2:48 PM

For four years, we were informed by our establishment media that President Donald Trump's behavior was "not normal." The abnormality of Trump's behavior became a near rallying cry for the self-appointed heroes of journalism, who spent every waking hour poring over his bizarre tweets and his bloviating self-absorption. The media dedicated themselves to preventing Trump's supposed normalization…

How Bureaucracy Killed Hundreds of Thousands of Americans

January 7th, 2021 3:33 PM

Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the media have spilled barrels of ink over mistakes by the federal government.

But when the history of this time is written, the fundamental mistake made by the United States government won't be rhetorical…

The Perversion of Science

December 23rd, 2020 11:36 AM

America's scientists are essentially miracle workers. Within mere months, they have developed highly effective vaccines for COVID-19. By year's end, millions of Americans will have received their first doses. We should begin to see death rates from COVID drop precipitously in the coming weeks as more and more Americans gain immunity from the virus. Yet never has there been a larger gap between…

Revenge of the Lapdogs

For four years, we heard that President Donald Trump is a threat to freedom of the press. The Washington Post signaled its own faux bravery by adopting the slogan "Democracy Dies in Darkness" at the top of its masthead. CNN began running commercials about facts being facts, and apples being apples rather than bananas (unless, presumably, those apples identify as bananas). The New…

Left’s Gender Theories Are Nonsense, But They’re Gaining Ground

December 3rd, 2020 3:07 PM

On Nov. 22, 2020, New York Times columnist Charles Blow unleashed one of the most bizarre tweets in recent memory. "Stop doing gender reveals," he stated. "They're not cute; they're violent. All we know before a child is born is their anatomy. They will reveal their gender. It may match your expectations of that anatomy, and it may not. If you love the child you will be patience, attentive and…

They Want to Shut You Up

November 19th, 2020 2:51 PM

This week, Abigail Shrier, author of the new book "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," found herself at the center of a firestorm.

When ‘Unity’ Means ‘Shut the Hell Up’

November 12th, 2020 6:32 PM

On Saturday evening, presidential frontrunner Joe Biden — who doesn't actually become president-elect until vote counts are certified — gave a preliminary victory address. In that address, he spoke of his mandate to govern: a mandate, he said, that extended to marshalling the “forces of decency ... fairness ... science ... hope.” Which is a pretty vague mandate, as it turns out.
