Feminism’s Experiment Against Common Sense

 

In the wake of the Weinstein scandal, the commissars of feminism are policing ideological infractions with increased vigor. Several women in the entertainment industry have had to apologize abjectly to the commissars for daring to suggest that women seek protection from a salacious, pawing Hollywood culture by not participating in it. “Big Bang Theory’s Mayim […]

Condemning Harvey, Still Clinging to Bill and Teddy

 

Amidst the flurry of demands that Harvey Weinstein be extinguished from the liberal memory, Democrats keep turning up at institutions and award ceremonies named after serial exploiters of women. The other day John Kerry took a break from the denunciations of the bloated mogul to pick up an honor from the “Edward Kennedy Institute.” Barack […]

Pope Francis vs. His Predecessors

 

For decades, liberal Catholics have relativized Catholic dogma and dogmatized relativism. Pope Francis is the champion of this movement. One moment, he is pushing Jesuitical situation ethics, which is an outgrowth of moral relativism; in the next, he is hectoring Catholics that his flaky political opinions constitute “Catholic social teaching.” To adulterers, he says: Go […]

The Left’s Collusion with Harvey Weinstein

 

The fleshy, repellent, sinister look of Harvey Weinstein, akin to the brutal indifference on the face of an overfed badger before devouring his prey, is proof of the unity between body and soul. If beauty adorns virtue, ugliness adorns vice. The horror stories about Weinstein continue to multiply and now include tales of criminal flashing […]

Another Tradition Never Trump Conservatives Won’t Conserve

 

Bret Stephens, casting himself as one of conservatism’s most conscientious guardians, warned that Donald Trump would blow up the “conservative movement.” He didn’t mention the sticks of dynamite in his own pocket. This week he tossed one out in a column calling for a re-write of the Constitution. “I have never understood the conservative fetish […]

The Unserious ‘Serious’ Discussion About Guns

 

The philosophy underlying liberalism is at once totalitarian and relativistic. It proposes more government and less morality. It laughs at the mustiness of the Ten Commandments, then demands respect for a flurry of new laws. It scoffs at old codes of self-control, then presses for “gun control” and greater state controls on this or that […]

The Establishment GOP’s Meaningless Majority

 

Cable television is littered with “Republican consultants” who hate Republicans and consult no one. To the extent that they even worked on Republican campaigns, they were losing ones. MSNBC and CNN are a veritable jobs program for these frauds, sending them out almost on the hour to second the talking points of their liberal patrons. […]

The Patriots vs. The Nihilists

 

In the obscenely overpaid — whether it is actors who make millions for mouthing silly lines off a cue card or athletes who earn more money in a few games than most make in a lifetime — a certain self-loathing must exist. Making so much for doing so little can only generate an unease that […]

Hollywood, a Town of Jesters Who Act like Kings

 

Early in his career Jimmy Kimmel used to mock celebrities for their self-importance and presumption. Now he has become one of them. So much for his experiences on The Man Show. He has become just another entitled, weepy, egotistical entertainer lecturing middle America on animal rights, feminism, and socialized medicine. “Kimmel Chokes Up On Air Over […]

All of Obama’s Wiretappers

 

Hillary Clinton’s campaign memoir rests on an astonishingly audacious lie: that the very FBI director who made her campaign possible by improperly sparing her from an indictment doomed it. A normal pol who had mishandled classified information as egregiously as Hillary would have felt eternal gratitude to Comey. Only an entitled ingrate like Hillary would […]
