Who commits violent antisemitic attacks in Europe? Hint: it’s not neo-Nazis

Philippe Lemoine’s close-grained analysis on the topic also understood by others such as Melanie Phillips. Along with Douglas Murray’s latest article inevitably all this points to a rather bleak outlook for UK Jewry. My brief thoughts on the matter of the regressive’s complicity with Islamofascism outlined here. authoritarianismChristopher Hitchensdouglas murrayilliberalismislamofascismJew hatredMelanie PhillipsNazismPhilippe Lemoineregressive left

First Church of Intersectionality

The always insightful and elegant Elizabeth Corey in First Things. Individuality is secondary to group identity. Soon the church-like atmosphere evolved into a political rally.

The Strange Death of Europe

The eminently sensible, sane, humane, informed, analytical, eloquent, cultured, honest and ballsy Douglas Murray has a very timely and important book about to hit the shelves. The mass self-delusion of the regressive left and their feckless fellow-travelers (you know, the Sarsourian-type zombies from middle-class families) is the most astonishing and perverse of herd instincts. While they (and their intersectional pseudo-theorists) fetishize…
