‘Selma Envy’ and the Left’s Increasing Embrace of ‘Eliminationist Rhetoric’

For at least 30 years, going back to when I was covering local schools for the Rome (Ga.) News-Tribune, I’ve been worried about how history is taught in America’s education system. This problem was apparent to me by the time our oldest child was in kindergarten, and I didn’t at first fully understand until, working […]

Academia’s DEI ‘Oppression’ Racket and the Demonization of Jews on Campus

Harvard University alumna Dara Horn published a very interesting article in The Atlantic last month talking about the climate on elite campuses, the subject of congressional hearings: The problem was not that Jewish students on American university campuses didn’t want free speech, or that they didn’t want to hear criticism of Israel. Instead, they didn’t […]

Pouncing? Yes, But Also Seizing: GOP Gets Credit for Resignation of Harvard University’s Plagiarist President

Speaking on behalf of the “far right,” I must express our collective gratitude to the media for recognizing our work. Strange as it might seem, some journalists apparently believe it’s a bad thing to force the president of Harvard University to resign amid a plagiarism scandal, which followed close on the heels of Claudine Gay’s […]

BREAKING: Penn’s Magill Resigns

Yes or no?” President Magill: “If the speech turns into conduct, it can be harassment. Yes.” Congresswoman Stefanik: “I am asking, specifically calling for the genocide of Jews, does that constitute bullying or harassment?” President […]

Lesbian Teacher Sentenced to Prison for Sexually Molesting Two Teenage Girls

That’s a headline you’ll never see in any mainstream media publication. There is no such thing as a gay pedophile, so far as the media are concerned, and on those occasions when minors are abused in such circumstances, journalists are obliged to conceal the most obvious facts. Longtime blog buddy Dana Pico calls attention to […]

Engineering Majors Are Dangerous: Feds Arrest Student Who Threatened Jews

Justice Department press release: SYRACUSE, NEW YORK — Patrick Dai, age 21, a junior at Cornell University who is originally from Pittsford, New York, was arrested [Tuesday] on a federal criminal complaint charging him with posting threats to kill or injure another using interstate communications.

The Ivy League Is Decadent and Depraved

“Amid backlash” is an interesting phrase, as is the euphemistic reference to an “Israel statement.” One might make any number of statements about Israel without finding oneself “amid backlash.” The language in the Harvard Crimson headline, of course, is a sort of journalistic DARVO (Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender) tactic, meant to convince the […]
