There’s No Such Thing as Islamophobia: Critique of religion is a fundamental Western right, not an illness

Superb analysis in City Journal by Pascal Bruckner outlining the fuckwittery that the regressive left is so complicitous with, and sadly, a disproportionate number of over-compensating virtue-signaling Jews buy into this dhimmitude under the guise of anti-Zionism. Also tiresome is when these nihilistically delusional dhimmies claim that there is no connection between Islam and terror. As…

The Dupe Army or the True Taste Restaurant

In the past I’ve sung the praises of Eric Weinstein’s quality of mind, i.e. his intellectual honesty and rigor pervading eclectic interests that are never monomaniacal. Though its always a pleasure to listen to Eric talk on any topic I want to direct your attention to the Cartesian graph he first mentioned about a year ago on…

It would take several more decades before that death sentence…

Mary Lefkowitz

Here’s wishing a happy birthday to the amazingly brave Mary Lefkowitz, a beacon of light for intellectual integrity, truth and liberality. I’d urge you to read History Lesson: it’s an easy, quick and a rather chilling read. Mary came to my attention some thirty years ago when, studying classics, I came across the contentious Martin Bernal. Their bitter clash later morphed into even more unsavory exchanges with others…
