VDH UltraWhat The Left Tells Us About the Left. Part One

Victor Davis Hanson “Election Denialism” I don’t listen much to the leftwing charge of “election denialism.” Why? Not because Republicans who had problems with the 2020 election did not deny its validity. Many did, perhaps because, in a first, in many key states nearly 70 percent of the balloting was not done on Election Day—even …

VDH UltraLiving in the Land of Lies. Part One

VDH UltraLeftwing Hysteria and the Art of the Psychodrama. Part Six

Victor Davis Hanson A second seminal false narrative psychodrama followed the death of George Floyd. No sooner had Floyd died while in police custody than his deified image began appearing in street art with a halo and wings.

VDH UltraLeftwing Hysteria and the Art of the Psychodrama. Part Five

Victor Davis Hanson Of the hundreds of psychodramas of the last decade, perhaps three have changed the course of history. All were either outright misinformation, half-truths, or remained obfuscated with the full details suppressed.

VDH UltraLeftwing Hysteria and the Art of the Psychodrama. Part Four

Victor Davis Hanson For every pre-election October surprise, there is always a post-election November psychodramatic “bombshell.” This year, right after the vote, there was the sudden announcement that a special prosecutor was appointed to investigate Donald Trump—on grounds of purported complicity in the January 6 riot and the hysterias arising over his presidential papers. But …
