Salon’s conspiracy

This article was originally published by Salon on April 20, 1998. Salon is in the news. Stories by Murray Waas and Jonathan Broder concerning Whitewater witness David Hale have ratcheted up the Clinton assault on special prosecutor Ken Starr. They have been cited in the pages of Time magazine and the New York Times, and [...]

This is Beyond Libel. It is Surreal.

Editor’s note: In March 2001,  Alicia Montgomery dubbed David Horowitz “the white Al Sharpton.”  Below is his response, originally published by Salon on March 19, 2001. A depressing aspect of the debate that I seem to have started is how one-sided it remains. In the thousands of words written in response to the 1,300-word ad [...]

The party’s over

This article was originally published by Salon, on May 4, 1998. For years, Richard Rorty held court as one of the foremost left-wing intellectuals in America. In his latest book, “Achieving Our Country,” he describes the left as anti-American, negative, lacking any program and politically irrelevant. Damning as this indictment might seem, Rorty has no [...]

The Purging of Marty Peretz


Another witch-hunt of an individual who failed to toe the Party Line.

The Purging of Marty Peretz

Editor’s Note: This is a comment that David Horowitz left at Tablet Magazine here. The post was inspired by this New York Magazine article here which we’ll have more on soon at NRB. I am honored to be compared to Marty Peretz who is currently undergoing a purge by the left — one of its [...]

Baa baa black sheep!

This article was originally published by Salon, on November 9, 1998. What if 90 percent of the white electorate had turned out last Tuesday to vote for Republican candidates in virtually every electoral district across the country? What if Newt Gingrich and Trent Lott had spent the last weeks before the election visiting all-white churches [...]


This article was originally published by Salon, on June 1, 1998. Just when you thought the old socialist left was dead and buried, it is sprouting up across the cultural landscape like a spring weed on Viagra. Last week, Warren Beatty’s terminally silly agitprop, “Bulworth,” opened in theaters nationwide. The premise of the film is [...]

Homosexuality and the civic responsibility of politicians

This article was originally published by Salon, on June 29, 1998. The flap over Sen. Trent Lott’s remarks about homosexuality illustrates the way people on both sides of the political debate have come to talk about this issue — and shouldn’t. For those who missed it, Lott was asked on a radio talk show whether [...]

Fight the power!

This article was originally published by Salon on June 15, 1998. It’s graduation time on America’s college campuses. As these rites of passage scroll across C-SPAN, it’s also a time to reflect on the near total dominion of the left over our institutions of higher learning — a political control of academic life unprecedented in [...]

Family Feud

It took a Republican to create an opening to China. And it took a Kennedy to tell other members of America’s royal family how screwed up they’ve become.
