VDH UltraJanuary 6th Versus the Durham Revelations. Part One

Victor Davis Hanson There are now two concurrent Washington, D.C.-area dramas. One is the last gasp of the politically motivated January 6th Committee hearings. The proceedings have been restarted to coincide with the final stretch of the midterms and to give Rep. Lynn Cheney a last appearance of political legitimacy, before in defeat she loses …

VDH UltraThoughts on the Cultural Revolution in Our Midst. Part Two

Victor Davis Hanson Since the Left cannot win over 51 percent of the population to its border, energy, crime, economic, social, foreign, and race-based policies, it turns to its near monopoly over institutions—academia, the media, Big Tech, the administrative state, the corporate boardroom, K-12, entertainment and sports and the foundations—to wage a propaganda and cultural …

VDH UltraThoughts on the Cultural Revolution in Our Midst. Part One

Victor Davis Hanson We are in the middle of a grand effort to create an equality-of-result, race-based, radical Jacobin society. It is by design entirely antithetical to the Founders’ constitutional republic. And the revolutionary agenda is overseen by an exempt bicoastal oligarchy. The enforced equality of result will, of course, be mandated by elites not …

VDH UltraAn Inferior Present Judges a Superior Past. Part Three

Victor Davis Hanson Illegal aliens largely live in the homes of the vanished agrarians. In turn, they rent out the barns and sheds, and create compounds of 20-30 people, with 10-15 cars parked about. No sheriff, no county inspector, no building inspector dares to set foot on these old homesteads of now dead farmers. They …

VDH UltraAn Inferior Present Judges a Superior Past. Part One

Victor Davis Hanson Rural California, like rural America, in the 1960s now seems almost unrecognizable—not so much a different culture as a different universe. Since then, we certainly have advanced materially, but regressed morally. That paradox is often the way of the past as well, at least since some 2,700 years ago when Hesiod railed …

VDH UltraHow Democracy Dies in Darkness—in Five Easy Steps. Part Two

Victor Davis Hanson STEP THREE. Change voting and government rules when they are no longer useful. Claim any customs and traditions that are no longer advantageous are mere racist relics or the baleful legacy of old white men. When in the majority, demand the end of the racist filibuster. When in the minority save it …

VDH UltraHow Democracy Dies in Darkness—in Five Easy Steps. Part One

Victor Davis Hanson What if you believed that the U.S. was in mortal danger because its elections continually led to the wrong results and policy choices? What if the “people” were just too ignorant of what was good for them and continually displayed such dangerous cluelessness in how they voted? How could you even work …

VDH UltraHow and Why Did Democrats Become Revolutionaries? Part One

Victor Davis Hanson The current Left is certainly not the party of Harry Truman or JFK—or for that matter even of Bill Clinton. Neither ordered the FBI to raid the home of their predecessors. It is a revolutionary, a Jacobin party intent not just on winning elections and implementing more redistribution, bigger government, and higher …
