They have adopted in …

The Pathetic Democratic Pantheon

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness Over the last few months the four icons of the Democratic Party—Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Nancy Pelosi—have hit the campaign trail. They’ve weighed in on everything from “right-wing violence” and “election denialists” to the now tired “un-American” semi-fascist MAGA voter—and had nothing much to say about inflation, the …

Permissible and Impermissible Incendiary Speech?

United States Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) hit the airwaves to connect the recent assault on Paul Pelosi with “fascism” and “white nationalism.” She insists that both are now ubiquitous.

Who Denies Election Results?

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness A Democratic myth has arisen that Donald Trump’s denial of the accuracy of the 2020 vote was “unprecedented.” Unfortunately, the history of U.S. elections is often a story of both legitimate and illegitimate election denialism. The 1800, 1824, 1876, and 1960 elections were all understandably questioned. In some of these …

Equal Justice, They Said

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness What once distinguished the United States from illiberal regimes following the Orwellian mantra “some are more equal than others” was the hallowed American idea of “equal justice under the law.” The phrase is engraved above the entrance to the United States Supreme Court—an ideal that took centuries to achieve. Yet it …

FBI, R.I.P.?

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness The FBI is dissolving before our eyes into a rogue security service akin to those in Eastern Europe during the Cold War. Take the FBI’s deliberately asymmetrical application of the law. This week the bureau surprise-raided the home of former President Donald Trump—an historical first. A massive phalanx of FBI …

Who Are the Real Insurrectionists?

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness For 120 days in summer 2020, violent protesters destroyed some $2 billion in property and injured 1,500 police officers in riots that led to over 35 deaths. Because blue-state mayors and governors saw BLM and Antifa instigators as useful street soldiers, most of those arrested were never tried in court. …

The Cry-Baby Leftist Mind

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness Modern progressives assume moral and intellectual authority. Consequently, their supposedly superior ends naturally justify almost any means necessary to achieve them. Among the elite, the Democrats’ “blue-wall” states were once considered a testament to the wisdom of the Electoral College. When that wall crumbled in 2016 to Trump, the Electoral College suddenly …
