  • The Post Millennial She gives Brazilians; “She” wants Manzilian: Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off Thursday July 19th, 2018
    Donate All donations go to this article's author and this month's charity.I wasn’t able to attend Idea City in person this year, but I did participate in a segment dedicated to freedom of speech via a pre-taped interview on the subject with the brilliant journalist Mark Steyn, who has spent decades beating against the current of identity politics and political correctness with trademark audac...
  • National Post For the first time, Israel is the world’s most Jewish country — this is a game-changer Tuesday July 17th, 2018
    The announcement was not unexpected. On the contrary, for those who follow the subject, it was long anticipated. But the words themselves, spoken by Israel’s Immigration Minister, Sofa Landver, still carried emotional force: “Israeli Jews now constitute the largest Jewish community in the world.”Until now, the U.S., with its many millions of Jews, has been the most Jewish c...
  • CJNEWS Kay: The Yazidis of today are the Jews of yesterday Friday July 13th, 2018
    Khawla is a Yazidi woman from Dugri, Iraq. I interviewed her a few weeks ago, in the company of Mirza Ismail, the chairman of Yezidi Human Rights Organization-International, who acted as our interpreter. Khawla, the eldest of four daughters, was 14 when, in August 2014, her girlhood and happiness ended with an ISIS assault on her community. The Kurdish Peshmerga, which was tasked with protectin...
  • National Post One woman’s journey from social-justice warrior to free-speech champion Tuesday July 10th, 2018
    When my son’s family took up residency in Toronto’s Riverdale neighbourhood, previously unknown to me, I discovered a continually gentrifying urban paradise, rich in cultural diversity. In particular, families with homes bordering beautiful Withrow Park seemed to me to have hit the real estate jackpot.But in 1972, when my new friend Sarina Singh’s father bought a house on W...
  • The Post Millennial Bill C-16, or The Transgender Identity Bill, is an act of “Velvet Totalitarianism” Sunday July 8th, 2018
    The philosopher Voltaire famously observed, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” In Voltaire’s day, it was dangerous to criticize the Catholic Church and its dogmas. In our era, it is dangerous to criticize the Church of Gender Identity and its dogmas. In fact, in Oct 2017, Canada passed a law to protect this Church and its dogmas from criticism: ...
  • National Post Suggestions for the new Ontario sex-ed curriculum Tuesday July 3rd, 2018
    Doug Ford’s victory was in some measure due to his promise — I believe a heartfelt one — to repeal the sex ed curriculum in Ontario schools. I assume there’s a replacement program in the works. A sex-ed vacuum is not politically tenable, or even what most conservative parents want. What principles will undergird a Doug Ford inspired curriculum? I’d suggest four gu...
  • The Post Millennial Progressives support Racist Policies targeting Asian-Americans to Protect the Big Lie at the Heart of Multiculturalism Sunday July 1st, 2018
    New York’s super-progressive mayor, Bill de Blasio has pledged to get rid of the Specialized High School Admissions Test, the rigorous entrance exam that has, up to now, been the sole determinant for entry into New York’s elite high schools. De Blasio is concerned that the current demographics in elite schools like Stuyvesant High and Bronx Science, previously mostly white, is ske...
  • National Post UBC had a #MeToo bloodletting. It was a disaster for everyone Tuesday June 26th, 2018
    The Lottery, Shirley Jackson’s macabre 1948 tale illuminating the human tendency to conform with evil, ranks high amongst American short stories. The ending is unforgettably shocking: as the ritual climax to a harvest festival, a lottery “winner” is stoned to death by the victim’s fellow townspeople.Jackson’s cautionary tale sprang to mind with the cultural ston...
  • The Post Millennial In Their Own Voices: Former feminists Explain Their Rejection of Feminism Saturday June 23rd, 2018
    Last week in this space I reviewed the recently published, Sons of Feminism: Men have their say, an anthology of essays and narratives by men from all walks of life and provenance, describing the various ways in which feminism had negatively  impacted their lives. As promised, this week I am reviewing Daughters of Feminism: Women supporting men’s equality, its companion volume, edited by gender...
  • The Post Millennial In Their Own Voices: Feminism’s Invisible Victims Saturday June 16th, 2018
    A recent article in The Washington Post, entitled “Why Can’t We Hate Men?”, authored by academic feminist Suzanna D. Walters, contains many falsehoods. But Walters’ most ridiculous assertion therein was “The world has little place for feminist anger.” This is arrant nonsense. For on the gender file in the western world, at least, there is little room for anything else but feminist anger. In fac...
  • National Post The male crisis that’s ruining our boys and no one cares about Wednesday June 13th, 2018
    Father’s Day approaches and with it the opportunity to consider the importance of fathers to their children.It is difficult to overstate both the positive effects of growing up with a father and the negative effects of father absence, especially for boys. These myriad benefits and perils are on record, undisputed and easily accessible. But in this gynocentric era, what is good or bad f...
  • The Post Millennial Is Motherhood Mainly Motivation for Misery? The New York Times seems to Think So Friday June 8th, 2018
    Last month, the New York Times marked the occasion of Mothers Day with “Stories of Motherhood, Told by Six Women.” Women readers had been solicited to share their experiences of becoming a mother, and 1300 submissions came in, from which the editors chose six. All were thematically united in dissatisfaction or suffering, as the titles make clear: “The World was Hers. Then She Became a Mom”; “Wh...
  • CJNEWS Sarcasm is the Jewish sword Friday June 8th, 2018
    Two American giants exited the literary world in May: Tom Wolfe and Philip Roth. Apart from their brilliance in mapping America’s social and cultural landscape, they could not have been more different in temperament and style. Roth’s writing was intensely personal, mordant and Jewishly obsessed; Wolfe’s was detached, exuberant and cosmopolitan. It is not by coincidence that Wolfe was a gentile ...
  • National Post A celebrated figure today could well be the condemned sinner of tomorrow Tuesday June 5th, 2018
    It was a happy day for the Winnipeg Pakistani community at the recent official opening of a park named for Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan in 1948. The ceremonies were presided over by Pakistan’s High Commissioner to Canada, Tariq Azim Khan, in company with MPs Terry Duguid and Iqra Khalid, who congratulated everyone present on this milestone.Thirty years ago, such an even...
  • The Post Millennial In its Obsession with Silencing Tommy Robinson, a Pusillanimous Establishment Abandons Treasured British Ideal of ‘Fair Play’ Thursday May 31st, 2018
    May 25 will be marked as a day of infamy for British justice. On that day, political activist Tommy Robinson was arrested outside a Leeds courthouse, where, as a citizen journalist employing normal journalistic strategies, he was livestreaming commentary to Facebook, as several Muslim defendants involved in infamous grooming gangs arrived for their trial proceeding.Robinson was doing nothing il...
  • National Post A new documentary gives ammunition to the sugar-is-deadly warriors Wednesday May 30th, 2018
    For decades, the low-fat diet has been to health and weight as Marxism to political governance: a catastrophic failure. People are fatter and sicker than ever. Why? Because lowering fat intake results in compensatory carb intake. Especially sugar. And sugar makes you fat and unhealthy. But, like Marxists, lipophobes will never admit their first premises are wrong, even when confronted by inc...
  • The Post Millennial Do Toronto’s Forest Hill Collegiate Institute and the Toronto District School Board have a ‘Jewish Problem’? The Optics Are not Good Friday May 25th, 2018
    I grew up in Forest Hill Village, which was, and is, a posh Toronto neighbourhood. My sisters and I, therefore, spent our formative years in the Forest Hill public school system: first South Prep (“Preparatory”), then West Prep, then South Prep Middle School and ending with five years at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute (FHCI). I have very fond memories of FHCI, where I felt ...
  • National Post Hamas will always win the PR war, even as Israel wins the military victories Tuesday May 22nd, 2018
    In his May 16 column, Terry Glavin takes Israel to task for the deaths and injuries of Gazan Palestinians sustained in the border clashes he concedes that Hamas orchestrated.Yes, Glavin understands that “Hamas exists for the sole purpose of doing violence to Israel and to Israelis.” Yes, clearly “what (Hamas) failed to accomplish with its rockets and tunnels, it is now prep...
  • National Post Israelis hold their fire as long as they can. Hamas writes cheques after mass suicides Friday May 18th, 2018
    There’s an old French proverb which, translated, reads: “This animal is very bad; when you attack it, it defends itself.” There is only one “animal” — politically speaking — that inspires this curious strain of logic, but it does so over and over again. Israel. Alone of the nations, Israel draws condemnation for doing what every other nation in the w...
  • The Post Millennial When Trans fanaticism joins with Political Arrogance, Freedom of Expression is the Victim Tuesday May 15th, 2018
    Politics makes strange bedfellows, a truism I am presently experiencing in real time as I find myself on social media supporting TERFs – Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists – in their battle against Trans ideologues regarding the charged question(s): Who/What is a woman? The lines of that battle are pretty simply drawn. Trans ideologues uphold one entirely subjective cri...
