The Left

Anarchy, American-Style

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness The 1960s revolution was both anarchic and nihilist. But it was waged against—not from—the establishment. Hippies and the Left either attacked institutions or, in Timothy Leary fashion, chose to “turn on, tune in, drop out” from them. The current revolution is much different—and far more dangerous—for at least three reasons. The Establishment Is …

What Caused the Political Hysteria of the Left?

Victor Davis Hanson American Greatness The Left has gone mad over Donald J. Trump—past, present, and future. The current Democratic Party and NeverTrump “conservatives” assumed that Trump was and remains so obviously toxic that they do not have to define exactly what his evil entails.

The New, New Antisemitism

The old antisemitism was more a right-wing than a left-wing phenomenon—perhaps best personified by the now-withered Ku Klux Klan. A new antisemitism followed from the campus leftism of the 1960s.

Two Antithetical Billionaires

The Dems are Radical and Their Agenda is Contrary to Nature

The Conservatives underestimates the left and play within the parameters of convention and tradition. The Dems don’t. They’re Neo-socialists, revolutionaries. VDH says we get a glimpse when they want to pack the court, end the filibuster or destroy the electoral college. The Left wants to re-fashion the past, whether renaming or toppling statues or destroying …
