Tell Me You’ve Been Gaslighting Me Without Telling Me You’ve Been Gaslighting Me

There was record turnout in Georgia’s primary elections yesterday. Record. Turnout. The New York Post goes easy on the left, headlining their story “Georgia sees record early voter turnout despite Dems’ carping over new election law.” Carping? Carping? Here’s a Fox News montage of leftists “carping” about the law while it was still a bill….

The most interesting man in the world

The richest person in the world is always going to be the person in whom the most people are interested, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the richest person in the world is always going to be the most interesting person in the world. But Elon Musk certainly is. Flamboyant, eccentric, iconoclastic, mischievous, and a master…

Debating the Debate on Debate

An opinion piece in Berlingske asks an interesting question: Should there be room for “well-coiffed hatred and cheeky fascism” at the Popular Assembly?Esben Vest Billingsøe (Opinion), Berlingske.dk, May 20 What I’m translating as the “Popular Assembly” could also be translated as the “People’s Meeting.” It’s an annual summer event (held in the 24th week of…

A Generation Robbed of Its Youth

Terese Hauschultz is a young woman: she claims to have just turned 22, and I have no reason to doubt her. She was therefore born early in 2000: part of the last cohort to be born in the twentieth century or among the first to be born in the twentieth, depending on where you draw…

Awakening to Wokeness

Tom Jensen is the editor in chief of Berlingske Tidende, and after years of coddling the American left he seems to be waking up to the fact that something is rotten in America: I’m not “cisgendered.” I’m a man.Tom Jensen, Berlingske.dk, May 1 Jensen is apparently trying to bring his newspaper’s Danish readers up to…

Herded for Trouble

I thought it was old news that we human beings are pack animals, that we’re group-oriented by nature. According to this article from Berlingske, however, it’s not old news at all. It’s trailblazing new stuff. It’s surprising. I’m not a psychologist or sociologist, so I can’t claim to be up to speed on the literature,…

Much Too Little, Much Too Late

Mikkel Danielsen is Berlingske Tidende’s USA correspondent. I don’t know how I missed it, but on April 4 he actually came across with the goods on Hunter Biden—and that’s a full six days before I wrote my post about the “ongoing silence.” I screwed up. There was at least one story in the Danish media…

It’s not a language problem

This was the top story on Berlingske.dk this afternoon: Everything going on in the world, and on Easter weekend, that’s Berlinge’s big splashy headline. The headline says, “Rei is a nonbinary transsexual and has a question everyone could “benefit” by asking themselves.” I won’t bother with a spoiler alert, I’ll give you Rei’s question straight…

Umbrella Economics

Back when I lived in New York, there were always guys hanging around the entrances to the busier subway stops selling all kinds of junk: pirated CDs and DVDs, scarves, knock-off purses and wallets, cheap sunglasses, the usual kind of flea-market crap. A lot of them also sold umbrellas. Cheap things, sure to blow apart…
