Greta Thunberg: A Living Explanation of the Left

It is not easy to understand what the left—as opposed to liberals—stands for. If you ask a Christian what to read to learn the basics of Christianity, you will be told the Bible. If you ask a (religious) Jew, you will be told the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud. If you ask a Mormon, you […]

What the Editor of Christianity Today Does Not Understand

The editor-in-chief of Christianity Today, Mark Galli, wrote an editorial calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. In my view, this editorial only serves to confirm one of the sadder realizations of my life: that religious conviction guarantees neither moral clarity nor common sense. The gist of the editorial—and of most religious and conservative […]

Why the Left Doesn’t Like Christmas

Many on the Left (as opposed to liberals) have been warring on Christmas for more than a generation. Leftists always deny there is a war on Christmas and mock those who claim there is. There is a mind-blowing chutzpah or lack of self-awareness when people do something and yet deny that they are actually doing […]

Fiona Hill Should Be Condemned by Jewish Groups. She Won’t Be

Fiona Hill, the former senior director for European and Russian affairs for the Trump Administration, testified last week in the House impeachment hearings. At one point, U.S. Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.) asked her: “Would you say that these different theories, these conspiracy theories that have been targeting you, spun in part by folks like [Roger] […]

Does the Left Hate America?

Whenever leftists are charged with not loving or even with hating America, they respond angrily, labeling the question absurd, mean-spirited and an example of right-wing McCarthyism. But there can be little doubt that the left has no love for America, just as there can be little doubt that liberals and conservatives love America. Love of […]

The Left-Right Divide Is About Reality Itself

The Left-Right divide in America is, unfortunately, unbridgeable. There are three reasons. First, we are divided by our vision of what we want America to be. The Right believes the Founders’ vision was brilliant and moral, that bourgeois middle-class values are superior to alternative value systems; that rights come from God, not man; and that the state […]

‘Your Past Is Terrible, and Your Future Is Terrible’

Here are some of the messages the Left has been giving America’s young people: Your past is terrible, and your future is terrible. The American past is a story of genocide, slavery, racism, patriarchy, and colonialism. You should be ashamed of it. As regards your future, your very existence is in jeopardy. You may well […]

Air Canada to Its Passengers: ‘Screw You’

Air Canada announced last week that it will no longer use the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” on board its flights. The policy is part of a “commitment to respect sexual identity, diversity, and inclusion,” the company said in an internal memo. Instead of the gender-specific “ladies and gentlemen” (and “mesdames et messieurs”—all announcements on Air […]

An Open Letter to Sergey Brin

Dear Mr. Brin: Fifty years ago this week, when I was a 21-year-old college senior, I was in the Soviet Union, sent by the government of Israel to smuggle in Jewish religious items and smuggle out names of Jews who wanted to escape the Soviet Union and could then be issued a formal invitation to […]

The Left to America’s Children: Your Past Is Terrible, and Your Future Is Terrible

A rule of life is that everything the Left touches it ruins: art, music, Christianity, Judaism, race relations, male-female relations, universities, high schools, elementary schools, late-night comedy, sports, liberty, journalism, the Boy Scouts, national economies, language and everything else it influences. The Left, not liberalism. (I have written a column and done a PragerU video […]

If You Can’t Sell Your Hysteria to Adults, Try Kids

The entire American Left—the mainstream media, the environmentalist movement and Democratic politicians in particular—are celebrating the involvement of teenagers and even younger children in protesting the world’s “inaction” with regard to global warming. And not just the American Left, of course. The Left throughout the world is celebrating. A 16-year-old Swedish girl whose contempt for […]

Do You Know What the Democrats Said at Their Debate?

The last debate among 10 Democrats seeking their party’s nomination for president set a new low for demagoguery, contempt for America and just plain foolishness. Here are some examples: Andrew Yang: “In America today, everything revolves around the almighty dollar—our schools, our hospitals, our media, even our government.” It is difficult to imagine a more […]
