Further Fallout from Christchurch

Mar 18, 2019

So predictable has been the fallout from the horrible New Zealand massacre that I could have penned this piece a week ago, or a month ago, or a year ago. Details may have changed, but the same underlying narrative remains.

Our Pathetic University Snowflakes

Oct 31, 2018

If you want to know everything there is to know as to what is wrong with Western universities, simply consider two recent incidents that make clear the sad, mad state higher education is in. Both come out of the UK

Just Who Is Being Provocative?

Aug 6, 2018

We hear a lot nowadays about certain sorts of people being labelled “provocative”. Almost always it is heard on the leftist mainstream media, and almost always it refers to conservatives, be they religious or non-religious conservatives.

The Laughable and Lamentable Loony Left

Jul 27, 2018

The loons on the left are certifiable. They are unhinged, they are militant, and they are hate-filled. They are getting increasingly nutty, and increasingly militant and thuggish, with violence more and more replacing debate and reason. Just the other day

Southern, the Media, the Left, and Orwell

Jul 21, 2018

The lamestream media coverage of the Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux tour down under is as good an example of how the truth-benders operate as you will get. Between what the radical ferals said (and did), and how the media

This Is How Free Speech Is Destroyed

Jul 20, 2018

Jun 11, 2018

Up until recently in the West we had rather minimalist governments, with individual freedoms much more widespread, and what we call mediating structures (the family, churches, civil associations) standing between the individual and the state.

Increasingly these institutions are being

Tommy Robinson and the Death of Britain

May 29, 2018

Less than a week ago English activist Tommy Robinson was sentenced to 13 months in prison. Given that he has been doing his best to warn about creeping sharia in general, and Islamic rape-gangs in particular, and that he will

Gender Insanity vs Gender Reality

Jan 12, 2018

The best way to destroy a culture is to turn everyone into brainless zombies. And that is exactly where the militant homosexual and transgender agendas are taking us. Every day we see new horror examples of idiocy running amok, and

Responding to the Islamisation of the West

Dec 27, 2017

Throughout much of the West major cities have large concrete blocks placed around high-traffic pedestrian areas. So what is that all about? Works of modern art? Not quite – they are security bollards. Security from what? Well, sadly, from basically

Melbourne Terrorism and Truth Denial

Dec 22, 2017

As I said at the end of my article yesterday about the latest terror attack in Melbourne, it is interesting how it always seems to boil down to one common factor: no, not Islam, but mental illness! This is the
