Hanukkah attack shows Jews must learn self-defense

The Hanukkah attack didn’t arise in a vacuum: World politics and history reminds us that Jews cannot look to others for help but must defend themselves. Ever since World War II, the mantra has been “Never Again.” I hope you notice how carefully wrote that sentence in passive voice, something [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 5/7/19 — the Vanishing Conservatives on Social Media edition

There are reasons for you to be very afraid of the social media crackdown on conservatives (even fringe ones), plus other scary stuff in today’s world. Democrats prepare for 2020 by silencing conservatives.  If I had to identify the scariest news today, it would be Twitter’s purge of conservatives, which [Read More]

Leftism, Islam, anti-Semitism, and the Jews

Democrats and Muslims have come together with anti-Semitism because it is their ideological destiny — and Leftist Jews are too indoctrinated to see it. One of the fascinating things about the world in which we live is the alliance between Leftists and Muslims. At first glance, it seems as if [Read More]

Politics

Reality shows that Ruth Bader Ginsburg knows nothing about constitutions

Events in South Africa today reveal that the Progressives’ adored Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a moral and constitutional moron, not a brilliant Leftist avatar. Progressives adore Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whom they fondly call “Notorious RBG.” Indeed, in 2015, a book entitled Notorious RBG: The Life and Times [Read More]

BYU Antisemitism
Education

Does BYU’s online high school gov class promote an antisemitic canard?

Am I overreacting to think that BYU’s online government class slipped in a gratuitous, classically antisemitic trope about Jews controlling foreign policy? I’ve written before about BYU’s online high school government class and, frankly, didn’t have much nice to say about it. It’s poorly written, poorly structured, and poorly informed. [Read More]

Jews excel at antisemitism, as they do at so many things

A recent attack against Harvey Weinstein in a Jewish publication reminds us that, when it comes to antisemitism, America’s Jews are overachievers. Almost three years ago, I wrote a post entitled Some of America’s ugliest antisemitism comes from young Hollywood Jews (language warning). I wrote after I had watched a [Read More]

A theory about Progressive Jews and how they got that way

Did the Holocaust’s shadow give Progressive Jews such a fear of dying that they cling to a political ideology promising (but not delivering) peaceful death? A theory that popped into my mind yesterday that may help explain the mystery of the Progressive Jew, a person who clings desperately to the [Read More]

Leftist Insanity

The Bookworm Beat 8/31/17 — another “Leftist insanity” edition

There’s so much Leftist insanity that one Bookworm Beat wasn’t enough to contain it all. It takes two posts to grasp what’s really going on. The craven FBI refuses to stop Leftist insanity. Although the mainstream media is silent, the conservative media is appropriately outraged that James Comey had already decided [Read More]

Answering the question: Why in the world do [insert name of group] support Democrats?

If you want to know why identity groups support Democrats even when doing so is counter to their interests, there’s one reason, and one reason alone…. Practically since the day I started blogging, at which time I revealed myself to be a politically conservative Jew, I’ve regularly been asked the [Read More]

Conservative Violence: The Horror

By: Mike McDaniel    Often, reading the work of others, such as my colleague and pal, Bookworm,  gives me ideas for articles. Nearly as often, comments by readers do the same, such as this one by nunnyadayambiddness: Something that I have been noticing for some time now, related to firearms and the general [Read More]

Leftist: civil disobedience is for protesting illegal immigration, not abortion

A Progressive makes the illogical argument that civil disobedience is good in the cause of illegal immigration, but bad in the cause of abortion. A good rule of thumb is that you should never trust a Leftist who makes an argument under the morality banner. That’s certainly the case with [Read More]
