Stop Making Excuses for Louis Farrakhan’s Lunacy It has long been known that Women’s March co-chair Linda Sarsour is a proud supporter of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Earlier this month, it emerged that her colleague Tamika Mallory was present at the organization’s annual “Saviour’s Day” event in February, where Farrakhan condemned “Satanic Jews” for being “the mother and father of...

Last Night in Sweden Sweden, as the prevailing narrative goes, is a social democratic Shangri-La and its story of mass Muslim immigration is one to be extolled and imitated everywhere. Any suggestion to the contrary is prima facie evidence of racism or fascism. So to hear our media elites, former Obama administration officials, and professional peace-processors tell it, the...

Everybody Hates Nazis! At the height of its influence in the late 1930s, the German-American Bund summoned 20,000 people to jeer Franklin Delano Roosevelt and salute Adolf Hitler at Madison Square Garden. According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Fritz Kuhn’s pro-Nazi organization boasted 25,000 dues-paying members and 8,000 Sturmabteilungen (Stormtroopers)—numbers which may well underestimate the group’s support.

Valerie Plame’s Real Blunder Last week, Valerie Plame Wilson got into trouble for retweeting a vile anti-Semitic screed accusing American Jews of being dual loyalist war mongers. The problem wasn’t what she was saying—similar accusations have been made by everyone from Barack Obama on down for years. The problem was how she was saying it: Unlike her allies in...

The Panic in Boston As a reaction to the recent expression of racist and anti-Semitic hatred at Charlottesville, last weekend’s demonstration in Boston was admirable. Some 40,000 people gathered to express their opposition to racial and religious bigotry, in welcome rebuke to a president who has difficulty calling out these maladies by name. Yet by directing part of their...

Growing Up at Yale In 2003, I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed freshman at Yale when the Afro-American Cultural Center invited the late Amiri Baraka to speak under its auspices. Baraka (né LeRoi Jones) had been a founder of the Black Arts Movement, Black Power’s artistic arm, but had more recently gained notoriety for his Sept. 11 themed poem “Somebody...

Putin Takes Credit For Defeating Fascism. LOL Vladimir Putin’s campaign to appropriate World War II history for his aggressive dismemberment of Europe’s paltry security order reached a crescendo Saturday, when Russia celebrated Victory Day with a massive military parade. Since its inception, the primary purpose of Victory Day has been to serve the political purposes of whoever happens to rule the Kremlin....

PETA's Gay Bunnies and the Holocaust on Your Plate It being gay pride month, hundreds of cities around the world are inundated with advertising campaigns directed at the same-sex community. These range from chiseled male models sporting designer underwear to banal images of gay couples shopping for produce at the local supermarket chain—anything that expresses an organization or company’s solidarity with gays (who, savvy...
