Bookworm Beat 8/16/2018 — the Brennan edition and open thread

Trump revoked John Brennan’s security clearance and Proggies went insane — and of course, they went stupid, too. All that and more in this Bookworm Beat. Apparently “honesty” and “integrity” have a different meaning inside the beltway. I was one of the millions who appreciated Admiral McRaven’s commencement speech at [Read More]

Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2012 tells Egypt to copy South African constitution
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]

Harvey Weinstein Antisemitism
Hollywood

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]

Leftist Insanity
Politics

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]

Charlottesville
Social Issues

Where I stand on Charlottesville and Confederate monuments

At Charlottesville, Antifa and Neo-Nazis proved to be birds of a feather; and blacks are right to want to remove Confederate monuments from public spaces. I’ve been rather conspicuously silent about events in the South. As you know, I like to wait until the hysteria settles and facts emerge to [Read More]

Education

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]

Macalester an American college
Education

A microcosm of the maddening mix of Progressive hate, ignorance, and nonsense at an American college

Despite a small spark of rationality, Macalester College’s weekly paper displays the Progressive hate, ignorance, and nonsense at an American college. Knowing my passion for free speech, someone sent me a small sign of hope: a link to a student-written opinion piece from the weekly student newspaper at Macalester University [Read More]

Teen Vogue March 2017
Propaganda

Teen Vogue adds anti-Israel advocacy to its arsenal of hard-Left positions (+ bonus content)

Teen Vogue turns against Israel with a gauzy, one-sided view of Palestinians. This sewage-like flow of Leftist ideology traces back to American academia. For those naive enough to think that Teen Vogue is a fashion magazine, please disabuse yourself of that notion as quickly as possible. It is, in fact, [Read More]

Anne Frank Antisemitism
Donald Trump

A Leftist hiding behind Anne Frank’s skirts attacks Trump on antisemitism

Trump made it simple: antisemitism is bad and it needs to stop so, of course, Stephen Goldstein, a Jewish Leftist hiding behind Anne Frank attacked him for not doing enough. Trump addressed antisemitism in a short statement at the National Museum of African American History and Culture: I know President [Read More]
