10 Thoughts on the President and the 'S---hole Countries' for 01/16/2018

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800

Here are ten thoughts on the president's alleged use of the word "s—-hole" in describing Haiti, a Central American country and African countries:

1. There are few filters between President Donald Trump's mind and mouth. That is his appeal and his weakness. It is very common that a person's strengths are also weaknesses. I wish Trump's tweets and comments were as forthright — as un-P.C. — as they are now but stated in a sophisticated way. I also wish that cheesecake were not fattening. But just as cheesecake comes with sugar, Donald Trump comes with unsophisticated rhetoric. People are packages, not a la carte menus.

I'm Back. Here's Where I've Been for 01/09/2018

I won't make any assumptions about how many readers noticed I took a three-month break from column writing.

Nevertheless, I want to explain why.

If It Damages America, It's Good for Democrats for 11/28/2017

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0800

In almost every area of American life, the better things are, the worse it is for the Democratic Party. And vice versa.

Marriage.

Feminization of America Is Bad for the World for 11/14/2017

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Last week, The New York Times published an article, "Sweeping Away Gender-Specific Toys and Labels," that contained three sentences that explain one of the most important phenomena in American life.

In discussing the increasing move to do away with gender-specific toys — something The New York Times approves of — the article quoted Tania Missad, the "director of global consumer insights" at one of the world's largest toy manufacturers, Mattel:

Dogs, Strangers and God for 10/10/2017

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 00:00:00 -0700

A while ago a human-interest story from South Africa was reported internationally. As described in the Wall Street Journal:

"On Aug. 4, Graham and Sheryl Anley, while yachting off the coast of South Africa, hit a reef, capsizing their boat. As the boat threatened to sink and they scrambled to get off, Sheryl's safety line snagged on something, trapping her there. Instead of freeing his wife and getting her to shore, Graham grabbed Rosie, their Jack Russell terrier. (One media account reported that Sheryl had insisted that the dog go first). With Rosie safe and sound, Graham returned for Sheryl. All are doing fine."

The Greatest Libel Since the Blood Libel for 10/03/2017

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 00:00:00 -0700

The most infamous libel in history is the one known as the Blood Libel.

This was the medieval lie leveled at Jews in some European countries that accused the Jews of killing Christian children to use their blood to make Passover matzo.

As the author of a book on the history of anti-Semitism ("Why the Jews? The Reason for Antisemitism"), having taught Jewish history at the college level, and as a committed Jew who has devoted great efforts to combating anti-Semitism, I do not easily compare anything to the Blood Libel.

Who's Divisive -- the President or the Players? for 09/26/2017

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Because the left dominates the news media, the entertainment media and academia, Americans are swimming — actually, drowning — in an ocean of lies.

Here are a few examples:

America is racist.

What Will Your Rabbi Talk About This Week? for 09/19/2017

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Tomorrow night is Rosh Hashana, one of the two High HoIy Days of Judaism, or "Days of Awe," as they are called in Hebrew. The other High Holy Day, nine days later, is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Just as there are many Christians who only go to church on Christmas and Easter, there are many Jews who only go to synagogue on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.

Leftism Is Not Liberalism for 09/12/2017

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

What is the difference between a leftist and a liberal?

Answering this question is vital to understanding the crisis facing America and the West today. Yet few seem able to do it. I offer the following as a guide.

Conservatives in America -- Like Marranos in Medieval Spain for 09/05/2017

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0700

For those unfamiliar with the term, Marranos was the name given to Jews in medieval Spain and Portugal who secretly maintained their Judaism while living as Catholics in public, especially in the 15th century during the Spanish Inquisition.

There is, of course, no Spanish Inquisition in America today — no one is being tortured into confessing what they really believe, and no one is being burned at the stake. But there are millions of Marrano-like Americans: Americans who hold conservative views — especially those who hold conservative positions on social issues and those who voted for Donald Trump for president.

Those Who Don't Fight Evil Fight Statues for 08/29/2017

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0700

All my life, I have known this rule about people: Those who don't fight the greatest evils will fight lesser evils or make-believe evils.

This happens to be the morally defining characteristic of the left. During the Cold War, many liberals and nearly all conservatives fought communism, but the left fought anti-communism. The left opposed American military buildups and regarded the Cold War between America and the Soviet Union as nothing more than two scorpions in a bottle fighting to the death. They loathed Presidents Nixon and Reagan, not Communist Party Secretary-General Brezhnev.

Sometimes the Good Guys Win for 08/15/2017

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0700

I am writing this column to inform readers of some good news.

The sustained efforts of individuals, organizations and the media who oppose everything people like me stand for — America as an exceptional nation among the nations of the world; the unique contribution of the Judeo-Christian value system in shaping America and the best of Western civilization; sustaining Western civilization as a moral imperative; preserving the American Trinity of liberty, In God We Trust and e pluribus unum; promulgating the American and Judeo-Christian belief that race is insignificant; and an openness to all points of view — to shut down my conducting appearance with the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra at the Walt Disney Concert Hall tomorrow night have failed.

Can a Conservative Conduct an Orchestra? for 08/01/2017

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Most Americans are at least somewhat aware of what is happening at American (and European) universities with regard to conservative speakers. Universities disinvite conservative speakers, never invite them or allow the violent (or threatened violent) prevention of them. No non-left-wing idea should be permitted on campus.

But we may have hit a new low.

My Response to Bret Stephens for 07/25/2017

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Bret Stephens devoted his New York Times column last week to admonishing me for my tweet from two weeks ago and critiquing my follow-up column last week explaining the tweet.

The tweet reads, "The news media in the West pose a far greater danger to Western civilization than Russia does."

Nukes Threaten People; Ideas Threaten Civilizations for 07/18/2017

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Last week, I tweeted, "The news media in the West pose a far greater danger to Western civilization than Russia does."

To my surprise, the tweet went viral. And while there were more likes than dislikes, 99 percent of the written reactions were negative.

The Atlantic Publishes All You Need to Know About the Left for 07/11/2017

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Last week, The Atlantic rendered a great service to those of us who contend that America is in the midst of a civil war between the right and the left. It provided a smoking gun — actually, the gunshot itself — to those of us who contend that the left (never to be confused with liberals) is intent on dismantling Western civilization.

It published articles by two left-wing writers, one by Peter Beinart titled "The Racial and Religious Paranoia of Trump's Warsaw Speech," and one by its national correspondent, James Fallows, written on the same theme as Beinart's.
