Revenge of the Neo-Jacobins

Some mock America’s statue-smashers as ignoramuses who do not know what they are doing or why. But there are very good reasons why we see monuments cast down all over the West, including the United States. Let’s not wave this off as mindless stupidity. The radical rule is that the more you destroy, the more [...]

The Bostock Betrayal

On Monday, the Supreme Court handed down its decision on Bostock v. Clayton County. In it, the Court decided that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would retroactively apply to homosexuals and transgenders, protecting them against employment discrimination. What was once the stuff of BuzzFeed rants is now the law of the land: homophobia and [...]

And Then They Came for J.K. Rowling

The self-destruction of the Democratic Party is being accomplished so quickly and thoroughly that even Democrats are noticing it. Certainly, the increasing internecine bitterness of Democratic debates is evidence that something is deeply wrong. The problem isn’t just that socialism is growing like mold on the planks of the party platform. There’s an even deeper, [...]

How Canada Lost Its Mind

The Democrats ‘Transition’ to Radical Gender Ideology

If you support Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, or Bernie Sanders, you’d better pay close attention to what they are saying about the transgender movement. If elected in November, their administration will have a direct impact on your son’s or daughter’s long-term emotional and physical health, especially if they are on the autism spectrum. Wrapped in [...]
