  • National Post The Black Book of the American Left: Volume I: My Life and Times Thursday January 9th, 2014
    To order David Horowitz’s “The Black Book of the American Left, Volume I: My Life And Times,” click here. In The Gulag Archipelago, Alexander Solzhenitsyn observed that Shakespeare’s tragic protagonists are content to murder only a handful of people.

  • National Post It Should be Pit Bull BEWARE-ness Day Tuesday October 29th, 2013
    On October 26, the Montreal SPCA and Pit Stop Montreal are celebrating "National Pit Bull Awareness Day."  Pit bulls may seem like an odd topic for a conservative journal, but as the (now) old saying goes, "the personal is political," and nothing that affects our emotional lives in this heavily politicized world is exempt from the rule. Anyone who owns a do...
  • National Post KFC’s ‘hot shot bites’ ad campaign leaves me cold Thursday August 29th, 2013
      Walk down the endless hot sauce aisle at any kitchen specialty store and you may conclude, along with me, that the whole concept of hot sauce is an intrinsically masculine obsession. I deduce this from the names of the various sauces. Their common theme seems to be the gastronomic pleasure to be derived from a taste sensation so extreme it causes pain to the palate, gu...
  • National Post A Father's Day Downer Sunday June 17th, 2012
    From the loving, engaged portrayals of fathers featured in recent popular movies like “The Descendants,” “Moneyball” and “A Better Life” — all three performances were nominated for Academy Awards — one might conclude American dads are culturally valued. Look again. The mothers in these films are comatose, divorced or dead. It’s no ...

It isn’t always easy to hear what Barbara Kay has to say. This award-winning columnist isn’t afraid to take on topics others would rather avoid — like gender politics, men’s rights issues, mult...
  • National Post The West Must Ban the Burqa and Nix the Niqab Tuesday December 29th, 2009
    The French are enjoying a debate about their cultural identity. Obviously the word “enjoying” is a euphemism, since the focus of the debate, whether or not to ban the burqa — full female coverage with an eye screen — in public, has riven the population of France, and by no means along the obvious fault line of Muslim vs. non-Muslim. Algerian-born Fadela Amara, ...
  • National Post David Solway’s Hear, O Israel!: A Feast for the Conservative Mind Sunday December 20th, 2009
    Hear, O Israel! By David Solway Canadian Values Press (Mantua Books) 181 pages; $25 On September 10, 2001, Canadian David Solway was merely an acclaimed poet, educator, and literary critic, warming himself (and his unexamined 1960s-era left-wing views) on a tranquil Greek island. On September 11, 2001, he became a prophet. Watching the collapse of the twin towers on a televi...
  • National Post Sarah’s Story – by Barbara Kay FIRST VERSION Friday December 4th, 2009
    There is one subject no writer in the world, not even the most talented and eclectic, would hope to have as a book project: the death of his own child. Trouble is, when a child dies, a talented writer, especially one whose own life has been grist all along for his writerly mill, really has no choice in the matter. Not to write about her would be a form of withholding and rejection, perhaps ...
