This most unique society, which evolved gradually over millennia, with each successive generation safeguarding and conveying to future generations the distinctive patrimony of its peoplehood, is now in danger of being inundated in the tidal wave of a hostile, alien culture, which has no intention whatsoever to assimilate to the nation of France.
Civil rights historian Abigail Thernstrom once spoke of the American campus as “an island of repression in a sea of freedom.” That was in 1989. At the high tide of freedom we who believed in unfettered inquiry and free speech believed these islands might “stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which
At some point, progressivism begins to collapse by the weight of its own internal contradictions and becomes faith-based. Future anthropologists will have a difficult time sorting out all the bizarre rituals and sacraments of this early 21st-century progressive cult. In today’s headlines, we have three crystal clear illustrations of the phenomenon. Let’s begin

We’ve been asked by Democrats and some Republicans to live with massive waves of immigration. But at some point immigration doesn’t begin to describe what’s happening, both with illegal and legal immigration. Let’s call it what it is. A variation of colonization that I call neo-colonization.

Pity the poor feminist. Yes, really! Her movement has been in the vanguard of Democrat party politics for close to two generations. She has tried to age gracefully, remaking herself as the times demanded, but lately she is feeling her age hard and her attempts to remake herself yet again have fallen flat. It’s tough
