  • 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...
  • National Post Following the science in the controversy over when you became you Friday January 29th, 2021
    One of the great pleasures of a second pregnancy is telling your first child that he or she is to have a sibling. Anticipated questions bubble up. How did the baby get in there? Can (s)he see me? The child may start talking to the baby by name (real or invented). If the child is old enough to understand — say six or seven — the gift of an illustrated children’s book explainin...
  • National Post Text messages exonerate Jessica Mulroney after she was cancelled last summer Thursday January 21st, 2021
    “Cancel culture” is pandemic today, but the virus was already in patchy play 30 years ago. In 1991, Toronto journalist and social activist June Callwood was charged with racist behaviour by a Black staff member of Nellie’s women’s shelter, one of 50 social organizations Callwood helped establish in her lifetime. The staffer accused Callwood of being “a woman of pr...
  • 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...
  • National Post Despite Trump’s Accomplishments, I’m a Never-Again Trumper Thursday January 14th, 2021
    Commentary Mea culpa. I had assumed there were limits to Donald Trump’s narcissism and it turned out there were not. I never liked Trump, and I never had any illusions about his character—both weak and bad—but, like so many others who voted for Trump (or in Canadians’ case, “voted”), I believed the alternative would be worse. My “vote” was transactional: accommodation to a disagreeable ...
  • National Post Despite Trump’s Accomplishments, I’m Now a Never-Again Trumper Thursday January 14th, 2021
    Commentary Mea culpa. I had assumed there were limits to Donald Trump’s narcissism and it turned out there were not. I never liked Trump, and I never had any illusions about his character—both weak and bad—but, like so many others who voted for Trump (or in Canadians’ case, “voted”), I believed the alternative would be worse.

  • National Post Communism’s Long March Through the Institutions Has Succeeded Monday December 28th, 2020
    Commentary Karl Marx was convinced that his envisaged revolution to save the world from its march to perdition would be realized by the united workers of the world. They would throw off the shackles of capitalism, voluntarily re-inventing their various regions as socialist utopias joined in global sodality. That never happened voluntarily, of course. It seemed the workers of the world w...
  • National Post My reason to be grateful in a thankless year Saturday December 26th, 2020
    Today’s theme is gratitude, without which equanimity in tough times is impossible. A personal story.In Grade 2, our teacher gave us a simple vision test. We covered our left and right eyes in turn and, from a distance, identified letters on the blackboard. With my right eye covered, I couldn’t identify a single letter.Barbara Kay: My reason to be grateful in a thankless yearI was ta...
  • National Post Tracing the Pernicious Social Contagion of Adult-Child Sex Tuesday December 22nd, 2020
    Commentary In my youth, sexual abuse of children was a little understood and never-publicly-discussed phenomenon. Pedophiles were considered to be deviants of the worst kind, in no way associated with “respectable” society or “decent” people. But in the 1970s, the veil of our ignorance was lifted by the open flirtation of far-left ideologues with the normalization of pedophilia (sex wit...
  • National Post Tracing the Malign Push to Normalize Adult-Child Sex Tuesday December 22nd, 2020
    Commentary In my youth, sexual abuse of children was a little understood and never-publicly-discussed phenomenon. Pedophiles were considered to be deviants of the worst kind, in no way associated with “respectable” society or “decent” people. But in the 1970s, the veil of our ignorance was lifted by the open flirtation of far-left ideologues with the normalization of pedophilia (sex wit...
  • 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...
  • National Post The glaring flaw of ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ that no one wants to mention Friday December 11th, 2020
    Thanks to a well-crafted Netflix series, “The Queen’s Gambit,” chess is having more than a moment this season. Google chess searches doubled from October to November, and participation in online chess sites is soaring. I well remember the 1970s popular surge, when American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer showed the dominant Russian chess mafia who was da real Cold War bomb, beati...
  • 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...
  • National Post The problems with Bill C-6 and the gender affirmation model Friday November 27th, 2020
    In my last column, I slammed Bill C-6, which passed second reading with a majority of the House of Commons and is now under review by the justice committee. I’d hoped one column would be enough to encapsulate my contempt for the political insouciance that produced this fiasco, but it wasn’t. This bill seeks to criminalize “conversion therapy,” a term previously applied ...
  • 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...
  • National Post The case for deep-sixing Bill C-6 Friday November 20th, 2020
    Late last month, 306 members of Parliament gave approval in principle to “conversion therapy” Bill C-6, with only seven Conservative party votes opposed (leader Erin O’Toole supported it, but permitted his MPs a free vote). The House of Commons justice committee is reviewing public responses to it. C-6 defines “conversion therapy” as any “practice, treatment...
  • The Post Millennial Medical student expelled for refusing to change his personal beliefs Friday November 20th, 2020
    If you represented a marketing firm hired by a political party to shine a positive light on your client's immigration-friendly policy, you'd be smart to personalize the message with an inspiring story of an immigrant who had benefited from the policy, and was in turn, as a model citizen, emerging as a productive, valuable asset to Canadian society. You couldn't do better than a young man by th...
  • National Post Those Calling for Abolition of Electoral College Want Neither a Republic Nor a Democracy Monday November 16th, 2020
     Commentary In the 2016 U.S. election Hillary Clinton won the popular vote handily, but—against all poll and virtually all pundit predictions—she lost the election because Donald Trump amassed a winning number of Electoral College votes. The outcome so stunned and outraged Clinton’s followers that an instant “resistance” sprang up to protest what they perceived as an illegitimate victor...
  • National Post I know a misogynistic sports policy when I see it Friday November 6th, 2020
    Fair, safe and inclusive sport requires stratification. Combat sports delineate by weight class. Youth sports stratify by chronological age. And, traditionally, all sports, including the Paralympics, have prioritized categorization by sex, given men’s inherent athletic advantages of size, strength, speed, endurance and reaction time. The purpose of age, weight and sex categories is to mi...
