Paul Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania. He has just published “The Devil and Karl Marx,” a careful look at the diabolical side of Karl Marx.

Biden Quotes Mao to ABC’s Roberts, She Refuses to Push Back

August 23rd, 2020 10:21 AM

For at least the second time in two months, Democratic nominee Joe Biden used a quote made famous by communist leader Mao Tse-tung when it came to women. Calling it simply an “old expression,” Biden got away with quoting the communist monster (who killed millions of people) because his interviewer, ABC’s Robin Roberts refused to call out, push back, or question her candidate as to why he was…

Socialism’s Past

March 18th, 2020 2:22 PM
Senator Bernie Sanders' call for socialism has resonated among many Americans, particularly young Americans. They've fallen prey to the idea of a paradise here on Earth where things are free and there's little want. But socialists never reveal what turns out to be their true agenda. Let's look at the kind of statements they used to gain power. You'll note that all of their…

Young People Ignorant of History

November 14th, 2019 2:01 AM
A recent survey conducted by the Victims of Communism and polled by YouGov, a research and data firm, found that 70% of millennials are likely to vote socialist and that one in three millennials saw communism as “favorable.” Let's examine this tragic vision in light of the Fraser Institute's recently released annual study “Economic Freedom of the World,” prepared…

GO FIGURE: NYT Lauds Genocidal Mao for ‘Greater Rights’ for Women

July 17th, 2019 6:17 PM
The New York Times has a repellent recurring habit of whitewashing the evils of Communism while actually praising the murderous ideology by giving it unearned credit for its ideals, which were never achieved and often dubious in themselves, while bashing freedom and capitalism. The latest appeared in Wednesday’s Times, with Amy Qin reporting from China with “As China Prospers,…

His Critics Have Not Blamed Him for the California Fires Yet

August 2nd, 2018 5:14 PM
WASHINGTON — It has been a pretty good week for Donald Trump. The economy is growing faster than anyone on the left or in the middle or among the Never-Trumpers believed possible. Inflation is low, and employment is at a record high. Moreover, the president and the European Union reached an understanding on trade last week that signals the likely end of a trade war, at least with Europe.

NYT’s ‘Red Century’ Op-Ed Lauds Commie ‘Emancipation’ of Women

September 27th, 2017 5:05 PM
In its roughly 30th installment of "Red Century," a weekly series of op-eds dedicated to the notion that 20th century communism wasn't all that bad, the New York Times performed a bit of perhaps inadvertent recycling. On Monday, Helen Gao, in an item the Times appears to have had the good sense to keep out of its print edition, argued, with "crucial caveats" (but not…

NY Times Compares Trump's 'Enemy of the People' Slam to Stalin, Mao

February 28th, 2017 12:24 AM
Another result of the Trump administration: It has made die-hard anti-Communists out of the New York Times. After Trump accused fake news purveyors of being an “enemy of the people," the Times talked about the depredations of international communism on its front page Monday, if only to compare Trump to Josef Stalin and Mao Tse-tung.  Andrew Higgins' dispatch was headlined…

Matthews: Tea Party Treats Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged' 'Like It's the

July 11th, 2014 11:36 PM
On Friday's Hardball, Chris Matthews and Howard Dean slammed the supposedly "lunatic" Republican Party for opposing President Obama's $3.7 billion request to deal with the ongoing crisis at the U.S-Mexico border. Dean likened the political stalemate over this issue and in general in Washington to McCarthyism in the 1950s: "It reminds me of the 'who lost China'…

Self-Important NYT Columnist Drops Middle Initial From Byline, Insists

January 2nd, 2014 11:08 PM
Nicholas D. Kristof (I've tended to call him "Nick" through the years) has made and implemented a momentous, course of civilization-altering decision effective 1/1/2014 (HT Twitchy): "If you look closely at my Times byline ... I’ve knocked out my middle initial for the new year." Why oh why would Nick want to do that? "I think in the Internet age, the middle…

'Happy Birthday, Chairman Mao' — From CNBC and the New York Times

December 30th, 2013 8:03 PM
The fascination with and excuse-making for long-gone communist dictators responsible for the murders of millions during their reigns is a long-standing phenomenon. Both CNBC and the New York Times continued that hoary tradition last week. Each headlined reports on the 120th anniversary of the birth of Mao Zedong (whose name was written as Mao Tse-Tung until about two decades ago) with…

Ynet News: Hamas Joined Brotherhood 'As Early As Two Months Ago'; NYT

December 11th, 2011 8:43 AM
A pathetic, obsequious act  on the part of an establishment press member was exposed as utterly foolish mere days after its appearance. On Wednesday (for Thursday's print edition), New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote glowingly of "Joining a Dinner in a Muslim Brotherhood Home." He swallowed a lot more than food while he was there, as the following excerpts…

AP Headline: 'One-child policy a surprising boon for China girls

August 14th, 2011 4:08 PM
Sunday, Alexa Olesen at the Associated Press wrote an item headlined "One-child policy a surprising boon for China girls." My immediate comeback: "43-60 million Chinese girls aborted because they were of the 'wrong' gender or would have violated the one-child policy were not available for comment." While nowhere near as odious as Nick Kristof's "Mao Tse-…
