  • The Post Millennial Professor could be dragged before Human Rights Commission after raising gender and race debates in class Sunday July 11th, 2021
    Cancel culture is now a trope that needs no explanation for all but the willfully uninformed in western countries. It began on university campuses, but didn't stay there. It is now a gigantic, unstoppable boulder of ice, crushing writers, editors, scientists, artists, actors, fashion influencers, politicians and even knitting enthusiasts in its path.Nevertheless, university campuses remain grou...
  • The Post Millennial What the case of the Masterpiece Cakeshop says about the LGBTQ+ movement and free speech rights Sunday June 27th, 2021
    Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, is a Colorado baker who would have been happy to bask in local recognition for the cakes he created, but instead became internationally famous for being—ahem—"batter"-ed by LGBT activists for the cakes he refused to create. In 2012, Phillips refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple's wedding on the grounds that he ...
  • The Post Millennial A Canadian historian faces cancellation for rejecting comparison between residential-school tragedy and the Holocaust Friday June 18th, 2021
    The discovery of 215 children's bodies in unmarked graves at Kamloops, BC Indian Residential School is yet another troubling milestone in the ongoing documentary history of Canada's singularly inexpungible moral stain. I braced myself for the actual or implied Holocaust comparisons that were sure to flow from it. And they did, of course. Kamloops was, according to clergyman Kevin Annett,...
  • The Post Millennial Left-wing media engages in out of control Israel bashing Sunday June 6th, 2021
    On the question of whether or not Israel has a right to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people—a question that never arises about any other legally constituted nation with ethnic origins—I say yes, and so, thankfully, do the publications I write for. Is Israel perfect? No, obviously; no country is perfect. Is honest criticism of Israel's policies and actions admissible in ...
  • The Post Millennial Head of Canada's progressive 'Anti-Hate' network warns of 'sick rumours of violence aimed at Jews' after recent antisemitic violence Saturday May 22nd, 2021
    Hamas can't win a military war against Israel, but every time they start one, the virus of antisemitism, for which there is no vaccine, and whose ever-more vicious strains spread farther and faster by the day. In every major city of North America and Europe, last week's anti-Israel rallies turned ugly in a way we in Canada have not seen before, with rock-throwing, Israel flag burning and...
  • The Post Millennial Mobbing of medical resident reveals double standards for social justice Monday May 17th, 2021
    Zachary Kuehner began his medical education in Thunder Bay and moved to St. John's in 2018 to specialize in family medicine at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). There he fell victim to a ruthless mobbing campaign that put him through a bruising "remediation" wringer, and came close to ending his career in medicine. Kuehner's case interested me particularly because of a common th...
  • The Post Millennial The divisive politics of COVID lead to vaccine hesitancy Saturday May 8th, 2021
    For the life of me—and it could be the life of me at stake—I am amazed at how many people are balking at COVID vaccination. I am not talking about anti-vaxxers in general, with whom it is futile to debate. I am talking about the specific vaccines for this specific virus and its variants. Normally I am all for individuals enjoying the greatest liberty possible. But the evidenc...
  • The Post Millennial Findings that 'systemic racism' doesn't exist in the UK met with fury by anti-racist activists Friday April 23rd, 2021
    In the United Kingdom, a significant mobbing is in progress. If the dignified black man the mob has targeted is discredited and toppled, it will be a setback for all who value disinterested research in support of constructive political action. It will also be a setback for blacks in Britain. In July, responding to a wave of Black Lives Matter protests in America that had spread t...
  • The Post Millennial Woody Allen is not the enemy—he is a distraction Sunday April 4th, 2021
    I was happy to read Cathy Young's lucid, thoroughly-researched and persuasive critique of the misleading HBO documentary "Allen vs Farrow." Amongst many other excellent points, Young notes that pedophiles are creatures of pattern. Before former partner Mia Farrow's allegation that Woody sexually abused his adoptive daughter Dylan at the age of seven, Woody had never before been accuse...
  • The Post Millennial Government-sponsored erasure of women's rights advances with the word 'female' being banned on International Women's Day Sunday March 21st, 2021
    According to research on the "cancellation" of conservative thinkers in academia, gender-critical academics are the most beleaguered of all. In his recent Quillette article, "The Threat to Academic Freedom: From Anecdotes to Data," University of London professor Eric Kaufmann writes, "just 28 percent of American and Canadian academics, and barely a third of British academics, would ha...
  • The Post Millennial Switzerland votes to ban the niqab in public Tuesday March 9th, 2021
    Switzerland takes direct democracy very seriously, often putting questions of public policy to the public in the form of a national or regional referendum requiring a 50 percent threshold for passage. Sometimes the results accord with the government's preferred policy, sometimes not. In 2009, Swiss citizens resisted government advice and voted to ban the building of minarets, agreeing wi...
  • The Post Millennial Mask mandates for children have no basis in science Friday March 5th, 2021
    At about this time last year, I was fretting to a friend about the paucity of medical masks available, and the difficulty of getting hold of cloth ones. My friend thought I was over-reacting. The government isn't telling us to wear masks, she said. They're even saying masks are ineffective and counter-productive. I remember my exact words to her: "Government policy accords with the scarcity of ...
  • The Post Millennial Academics and theorists reframe opposition to dangerous pit bulls in racist terms Monday February 22nd, 2021
    I am a seasoned polemicist in the pit bull wars (I'm not a fan of pit bull type dogs, to put it kindly, as you can see in this 2017 piece published in The Walrus online). It's been quite a while since I've engaged on that front, though. So a recent book review published in Aero magazine acted upon me as a bugle to an old cavalry horse. Titled "critical race theory is Coming for the Dogs," I ha...
  • The Post Millennial Jessica Mulroney was exonerated —so why isn't anyone apologizing for her cancellation? Sunday February 14th, 2021
    It's not often an opinion columnist has the opportunity for a "scoop"—that is, the opportunity to break a story to the public that has not been covered by other media outlets. It's a gratifying experience when it happens—and also, to judge by the feedback—an instructive one. In December, my editor at the National Post invited me to write a feature article based on material th...
  • The Post Millennial Biden's executive order allowing biological males to compete in female sports is an attempt to appease the far-left at the cost of women's rights Monday February 1st, 2021
    What did we hear over and over again when Joe Biden was declared the Democrats' official candidate for president? That we could all relax because he was the "moderate" choice, the anti-Sanders candidate, who wouldn't kowtow to the party extremists, but would honour the middle ground occupied by the majority of Americans. And what were we told about Kamala Harris when she was chosen as the firs...
  • The Post Millennial Ryerson journalism student should not be barred from school newspaper for his religious views Sunday January 17th, 2021
    There are two student newspapers at Ryerson University: The Ryersonian—funded by the university—and the Eyeopener, which is independent, but receives $6 per student, a contribution students may not opt out of. Jonathan Bradley, who is a contributor to The Post Millennial, is a fourth-year journalism student at Ryerson who by last spring had achieved the status of contributing write...
  • The Post Millennial Faith and family are at the core of Netflix's 'Greenleaf' Sunday January 17th, 2021
    I am a sucker for soap operas, and always was. One of my favourites was the CBS series, Dallas, which ran from 1978 to 1991. Its plotline had family patriarch Jock Ewing, founder of Ewing oil, presiding over all the ways in which such an apparent blessing can go wrong through no fault of his own, but plenty of fault shared out amongst his offspring, especially the Machiavellian older of his tw...
  • The Post Millennial The Inquiry reveals Cornwall's history of sexual abuse against boys Thursday December 17th, 2020
    In the 1980s Canadians were shocked into awareness of the widespread evil of child sexual abuse. Before that era, child sexual abuse was never considered a public health issue; it was thought of by decent people—if thought of at all—as an evil associated with obviously dissolute monsters. Certainly not something any "respectable" citizen would ever do. The sickening truth began to s...
  • The Post Millennial Former radio host takes station to human rights tribunal after getting trolled on Twitter Wednesday December 9th, 2020
    If you are an opinion journalist worth readers’ or listeners’ time, whether your views are left, right or centre, you will have lots of people disagreeing with you. Your more uninhibited responders, some of them downright sadistic bottom feeders, may express their contempt for you with shocking imagery on social media. They will wish you death in a grease fire, accuse you of every p...
  • The Post Millennial 'Zionism: An Indigenous Struggle' exposes the Palestinian appropriation of the suffering of North American native peoples Wednesday November 25th, 2020
    On March 16, 2003, at the height of the Second Palestinian Intifada, Rachel Corrie, an anti-Israel activist filled to the brim with righteous fury on behalf of the Palestinians living under Israeli control, travelled with a group of comrades-in-arms to Gaza and foolishly positioned herself inside an active combat zone to bruit her political message. She died when an Israeli Defence Force armour...
