  • The Post Millennial Twitter bans prominent doctor for stating facts Sunday May 19th, 2019
    Twitter has been in our lives for 13 years. But its practice of suspending and banning upright citizens for no other reason than holding incorrect views only got underway about four years ago. Today, the practice is so frequent and widespread that I daresay anyone reading this can point to someone they know, or follow on Twitter, who has suffered punishment by Jack Dorsey in this way. Most of ...
  • National Post Germany takes a startling new pro-Israel line Tuesday May 14th, 2019
    On May 11, 1949, the United Nations adopted the motion that admitted Israel as a member state. To mark its anniversary, Germany’s Foreign Office issued a startling statement: “The Federal Government would like to take this 70th anniversary as an opportunity to reiterate the fact that Germany stands at Israel’s side in the UN.”Berlin, the Foreign Office continued, was ...
  • The Post Millennial A new German commercial takes man hating to the next level Wednesday May 8th, 2019
    As Mother’s Day approaches, I am reminded yet again of my wisdom, when my children were quite young, in banning its celebration from my personal calendar. I was never comfortable being honoured by generic rituals for a generic role in which my children were harnessed, via cards and gifts, into the equivalent of “compelled speech.” It was always my opinion that if my children l...
  • National Post Our politicians may not care, but Christians are under siege across the world Tuesday May 7th, 2019
    It is estimated that about one third of the globe’s population suffers from religious persecution. By the numbers, Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world.An Italian study calculates that in 2016, a Christian was killed for his or her faith every six minutes. The trend is accelerating. A 2016 Pew Research report found that Christians were targeted in 144 countri...
  • National Post Universities shine a light on Ontario’s failing schools Tuesday April 30th, 2019
    A new study, ”Academic Skill Deficiencies in four Ontario universities,” offers solid, but troubling evidence that the secondary schools feeding universities are falling well short of expectations on the skills-building front. In fact, this study, conducted at four Ontario universities — York, Western, Waterloo and Toronto, which together enroll 41 per cent of Ontario under...
  • CJNEWS Kay: Why Jews should support Bill 21 Thursday April 25th, 2019
    Like it or not, Quebec is a “distinct society.” Anglophones and immigrants didn’t like it much in 1977 when Bill 101 came into effect (necessitating the use of the notwithstanding clause, since it abrogated English-Canadians’ language rights). Robert Libman, then a leading anglophone-rights advocate, said that Bill 101 “clearly established the fact that we were now second-class citizens.” Legal...
  • CJNEWS Kay: How Fauda might help to bring peace to the Middle East Wednesday April 24th, 2019
    For riveting entertainment, Israeli dramas rule. Several of them deal with the paradoxical realities of life in a flourishing, prosperous society where Jews, both secular and ultra-Orthodox, co-exist in (occasionally uneasy) peace with Israeli Arabs, but one that is shadowed by a siege mentality, with eyes and ears constantly alert to threats — or reports — of terrorism. Most Israelis sublimate...
  • The Post Millennial We need shelters for male survivors of abuse Tuesday April 23rd, 2019
    Ask any feminist—no, wait, ask any woman—no, wait, ask just about anyone you know, male or female, young or old, dumb as a brick or a Brainiac—whether men or women are the victims of intimate partner violence (IPV: what used to be called “domestic violence”), and I promise you, almost everyone you ask will respond without pause, “women.” It’s just...
  • National Post Anti-Semitic ‘blood libels’ get poster treatment at Toronto-area school Tuesday April 16th, 2019
    As part of a recent week-long “social justice” program, pro-Palestinian students at Stephen Lewis Secondary School in the Toronto area’s Peel District mounted a banner in a school hallway, reading, “If animal testing is NOT OKAY … Then why is human testing OKAY?” The banner was also displayed on social media.The cryptic message refers to two widely circul...
  • The Post Millennial J.K. Rowling has lost her magic touch by pandering to progressives Friday April 12th, 2019
    In 2007,  Harry Potter series creator J. K. Rowling made waves when she revealed that Albus Dumbledore, the much-beloved headmaster of Hogwarts Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and mentor to Harry Potter, was gay. Normally an author builds his or her characters on the page, leaving out nothing of special importance the reader must know to appreciate that character’s worth and motivations. So...
  • The Post Millennial Bill 21 is not the problem critics think it is Saturday April 6th, 2019
    Bill 21, “An act respecting the laicity of the state,” is ramping up for passage in Quebec. It will impose complete neutrality with regard to religion-signalling on the province’s public servants in areas such as elementary and high school education, the courts and law enforcement. Anyone presently wearing a visible symbol of their faith – notably the (visible) cross, the kippa and the hijab – ...
  • National Post What the anglo media misses about Quebec’s religious law Tuesday April 2nd, 2019
    Quebec’s newly tabled law, “An Act respecting the laicity of the State,” will be sent to committee for study, and with the help of the notwithstanding clause, will pass as written. The new law prohibits all government employees in positions of authority — judges, police, educators in elementary and high school (plus anyone carrying a weapon, such as wildlife officers) &m...
  • The Post Millennial Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism, and the problem of compelled speech Thursday March 28th, 2019
    One of my favourite Seinfeld episodes had Kramer joining an AIDS walk. But he refuses to “wear the ribbon.” People keep urging him to take it, and he keeps politely refusing. They become more importunate. He won’t budge. Finally, they get ugly and turn on him with menace: “Who doesn’t want to wear the ribbon?” one walker yells accusingly, as others press in on him.The scene is, of course, playe...
  • National Post When pit bull defenders attack Tuesday March 26th, 2019
    “Politics is downstream from culture,” Andrew Breitbart famously said. Rather less famously, but persistently, this columnist has always maintained that dog politics (which arouses more fervour than human politics) is downstream from human culture. Canine advocacy is permeated with the exact same tropes we hear from social justice warriors: “victims,” “equality,...
  • The Post Millennial Justin Trudeau is an actor, not a prime minister Monday March 11th, 2019
    Justin Trudeau’s “contrition” session with the press turned out to be a nothingburger. He did not apologize. He would only cop to an “erosion of trust” between his guy, Gerald Butts, and Jody Wilson-Raybould, implying that Canadians should be blaming Mr. Erosion, not him. He allowed as how “there is always room for improvement,” the kind of thing one sees written on one’s children’s report card...
  • National Post Congratulations, women, on being eligible for the draft! Tuesday March 5th, 2019
    On June 30, 1982, “STOP ERA” campaigners in the United States celebrated the expiration of the Equal Rights Amendment’s constitutional ratification, finally killing it 10 years after its 1972 passage in Congress.Their sticking point was that the ERA’s ratification would have forced women into registration for the military draft, to which they were strongly opposed. In...
  • National Post Left-wing attacks are forcing us to hold our law conference in secret Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    The SNC-Lavalin scandal has Canadians fixated on justice and the rule of law.The timing could not be better for a charity called Canadians for the Rule of Law (CFTRL), which is hosting a full-day “National Teach-in” in Toronto on March 17, entitled, “The New Taboo: Respect for the Rule of Law in Canada.” It was planned long before the present political brouhaha, and isn’t c...
  • National Post Another fine event the left wants killed Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    The SNC-Lavalin scandal has Canadians fixated on justice and the rule of law.The timing could not be better for a charity called Canadians for the Rule of Law (CFTRL), which is hosting a full-day “National Teach-in” in Toronto on March 17, entitled, “The New Taboo: Respect for the Rule of Law in Canada.” It was planned long before the present political brouhaha, and isn’t c...
  • CJNEWS Kay: A binge-worthy look at haredi life Tuesday February 26th, 2019
    In the past, on social occasions, it could be awkward when people ran out of topics for conversation, especially if one’s interlocutor was not bookish, thus preventing discussion about the latest good read. This is no longer the case. One only has to ask: “What are you enjoying on Netflix these days?” and the floodgates open. The supply of high-end, intelligent entertainment that Netflix (et al...
  • The Post Millennial Canadian sports “experts” embrace misogynist practices to please trans activists­ Monday February 25th, 2019
    Months ago, I tweeted that sports would be “where the rubber hits the road” on deference to trans ideology, because affirmation in sport of biological males who identify as women cannot co-exist in harmony with a level playing field for women. That burning smell? Rubber is hitting the road—hard. The latest incident in women’s medal erasure comes from Connecticut, where two transwomen sprinters ...
