150 masked “protesters” at Cal Berkeley, precisely 0.0039 percent of the 38,000 student body was all it took to shut down free speech at the University of California, Berkeley.

The US Constitution applies to US citizens, and the amendments known as the Bill of Rights guarantee due process as a protection of US citizens’ civil liberties. That’s the theory but not the practice. Trump’s travel ban applies to non-US citizens, primarily to refugees from the Bush/Obama bombings of numerous Muslim countries. Some of these... Read More
If you are a top ability student, but white, especially white male, you have scant chance of being admitted to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, Brown, Penn, Stanford, MIT, CalTech, Berkeley, or UCLA. The reason whites cannot gain admission is that in the entirety of the Ivy league, Jews are over-represented, relative to the... Read More
The subversion of fact-based science and scholarship by the emotion-based ideology of Identity Politics is laying the groundwork for the genocide of white people. This sounds like an outlandish statement. However, it follows logically from the identification of white people with violence, oppression, and every evil in the world. In a number of columns I...

We know that the white male has been delegitimized. Women’s studies, black studies, Latino studies, and Identity Politics have been demonizing, and teaching hatred of, white males since the 1980s. But where did these hate-filled special interest groups get their power? The answer is that effete white males handed it to them. It was white... Read More
It is amazing the power that politically correct kooks have acquired over language, art, and literature. It is a sign that the West is culturally dead. When high museums rename paintings because some emotional weakling declares the name to be offensive, it becomes obvious that the custodians of Western culture have lost their belief in... Read More
In my column last New Year’s eve, “The World Known to Me Is Fading Away” ( I recalled a past era when a poor Irish boy in a class society in which the English treated the Irish worst than blacks were treated in the United States could rise without the burden of student loans to... Read More
Georgetown University law professor Jonathan Turley notes that the University of California, once a bastion of free speech, now is opposed to it. The university now punishes people for opinions expressed outside the classroom and the university. Not that long ago American universities emphasized tolerance of all views so that truth would not be obscured... Read More
Stacey Patton, an assistant professor of multimedia journalism at Morgan State University writes in chroniclevitae.com that Ignatiev’s widely reported remarks that white males do not deserve to live is a satire of his views.

It is paradoxical that feminism together with other ideological movements has destroyed the natural feminism of women and turned them into sexual items. The 19-year old who intends to get her tubes tied is turning herself into a pure sexual commodity ( ). That women are transitioning themselves into sex dolls is a paradoxical result... Read More

Several years ago four of us who were high school and Georgia Tech classmates got together for a reunion to remember the fun times of our youth while we could still remember.

This morning (Januay 27, 2020) on NPR I heard a white female novelist describe her difficulty in getting her novel published. The problem was not that her novel was uninteresting or badly written. Her problem was that one of the characters was black. Unbeknownst to her, it is now considered cultural imperialism or cultural trespassing—some... Read More
I have come to the conclusion that collectively Americans are mentally and emotionally stupid. On any given day there is endless evidence that this is the case. Just a few selections from news of the last couple of days should suffice to establish the point. Instead of reforming police training as a rational response to... Read More
This is an introduction to a letter written by a black American professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He says that the University no longer serves scholarship and has become a servant to the Democratic Party and Black Lives Matter. He says that the university is akin to a suppressive regime that crushes real... Read More
Academics, if they are white, live in fear of their jobs. Professors lost their authority when administrations ceased backing them and instead allowed student complaints to result in investigations. Once an investigatory procedure is in place, it keeps itself funded by investigating. Feminist complaints, followed by political correctness, had the investigative process well oiled prior...

The United States is a screwed-up country. It this regard, the US has few rivals. The legal voting age in the US is 18 years of age, which is also the age of female sexual consent and military enlistment. So at 18 years of age youth can affect the governance of the country, get legally... Read More
For a number of years I have witnessed the disappearance of the white male from the publications and fund-raising materials sent to me by Georgia Tech and Merton College, Oxford University. The materials feature women and foreigners, and I am puzzled that the institutions believe that a person who remembers his college differently from what... Read More

When I was a university student, the liberals’ motto was a quote attributed to Voltaire: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” The liberals used this quote as permission to deconstruct the family, society, religion, and the belief system that held the diverse American...
