Enough With This “Epistemic Closure” Crap


Should reporters who believe that most of America is stupid and insane be in the journalism business? Let’s consider the question.
Take left-wing journalist Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic. He’s not bad at his job. His insights are often worthwhile and occasionally wise. Yet Ambinder sometimes writes things so foolish that one might expect to read them at [...]

From the Writings of David Horowitz: April 23, 2010


From its opening image, Rogue State proceeds to dismiss the idea that the Cold War was a conflict between nuclear superpowers or a contest between totalitarianism and freedom. Instead Rogue State presents the Cold War as the concoction of a single omnipotent power – a power whose ends are predatory and evil – able to [...]

Media malpractice, then and now


Today, the Media Research Council (MRC) released a 16-page report entitled “TV’s Tea Party Travesty: How ABC, CBS and NBC have Dismissed and Disparaged the Tea Party Movement.” Anyone interested in media bias, modern American culture, protest movements and contemporary politics should download and read this free report.

From the Writings of David Horowitz: March 27, 2010


Rarely has the world been afforded such a clear glimpse into the unholy alliance between Islamic extremists and secular radicals in the West. That’s exactly what it got last week when the foremost Imam of the radical Left, Noam Chomsky, bestowed his blessings on the world’s largest terrorist army, the Shiite jihad outfit sponsored by [...]

From the Writings of David Horowitz: March 26, 2010


We wrote Destructive Generation in the mid-Eighties because of the way that Sixties radicalism was continuing to influence how America thought and felt twenty years after the fact. Today, another twenty years further on, the Sixties is still the undead decade. Far from being yesterday’s news, as it should be, it is still the white [...]

From the Debates of David Horowitz: March 20, 2010


David Horowitz: Well, this is just sophistry. First of all, in my book, Unholy Alliance, I devote a lot of space to showing how parallel the views are of very prominent American leftists Noam Chomsky, [Howard Zinn], Eric Hobsbawm, and even so-called moderates like Todd Gitlin, who would be appalled at being [...]

A Soundbite (on Howard Zinn) Heard Round the World


I knew when I responded to an NPR request for a comment on the late, unlamented Howard Zinn that I was asking for trouble — from the anti-American, Marxoid, neo-Communist left.  But I did it anyway because Howard Zinn’s life was so dedicated to evil and specifically to the support of mass murderers and self-declared [...]

One critical voice unleashes the Left’s totalitarian attack dogs.

Chomsky and the Khmer Rouge – The Observer


Chomsky and the Khmer Rouge Letters The Observer February 8, 2010 In his prickly response Letters, 17 January to Andrew Anthony’s “Lost in Cambodia,” OM, 10 January 2010 Noam Chomsky does precisely what he accuses Anthony of doing: “Vilify the messenger, to ensure that unwanted history is forgotten.” That unwanted history is of Chomsky himself […]

As you Enjoy Super Bowl, Remember It’s Just Corporate Trap to Distract You From How You’re Being Screwed by Evil Capitalist Elites


I wonder if The Ayatollah of Anti-American Hate, Noam Chomsky, is watching the Super Bowl right now?
His views on sports, which are as crackpot as his thinking on everything else, but to which I — as a non-sports person — still hold a sliver of affection:
In fact, I have the habit when I’m driving of [...]
