    Douglas Murray: The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam
    By far the most compelling political book of the year was Douglas Murray's The Strange Death of Europe ... fearless, truth-telling, and masterfully organised ... Don't hold an opinion about this book if you have not read it. * Evening Standard, Books of the Year 2017 * This is a brilliant, important and profoundly depressing book. That it is written with Douglas Murray's usual literary elegance and waspish humour does not make it any less depressing. That Murray will be vilified for it by the liberals who have created the appalling mess he describes does not make it any less brilliant and important ... Read it. * Rod Liddle, Sunday Times * His overall thesis, that a guilt-driven and exhausted Europe is playing fast and loose with its precious modern values by embracing migration on such a scale, is hard to refute. * Juliet Samuel, Telegraph * Every so often, something is published which slices through the fog of confusion, obfuscation and the sheer dishonesty of public debate to illuminate one key fact about the world. Such a work is Douglas Murray's tremendous and shattering book, The Strange Death of Europe. * Melanie Phillips, The Times * Breathtakingly gripping * Michael Gove, Standpoint

"No Labels" Indeed

  • “‘In America we have a two-party system,’ a Republican congressional staffer is supposed to have told a visiting group of Russian legislators some years ago. ‘There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party.’ He added: ‘Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called — bipartisanship.’” – Peter Brimelow

One Hundred Million Dead

  • "The West accepts an epochal, monstrous, unforgivable double standard. We rehearse the crimes of Nazism almost daily; we teach them to our children as ultimate historical and moral lessons; and we bear witness to every victim. We are, with so few exceptions, almost silent on the crimes of Communism. So the bodies lie among us, unnoticed, everywhere." -- Alan Charles Kors, Professor of History, University of Pennsylvania


  • "The latest manifestation of Che-worship is a film by Steven Soderbergh called, simply, Che. It was screened in Havana, of course, under the approving gaze of the Communist dictatorship. The actor playing Guevara, Benicio Del Toro, was there, partying with party members -- Cuban officials. It must have been very cozy. And who was Che Guevara, the real one? He was Castro's number-one thug, presiding over summary executions at La Cabana. That was the fortress that served as his abattoir. He would administer the coup de grace -- a bullet in the back of the neck -- while his victims cried, 'Vivo Cristo Rey!' or 'Viva Cuba libre!' He liked to show off El Paredon, the killing wall turned red with blood. Furthermore, he established the labor-camp system in the which countless citizens -- dissidents, democrats, artists, homosexuals -- would suffer and die. This is the Cuban gulag. Anthony Daniels once remarked that the difference between Guevara and Pol Pot is that Guevara never studied in Paris." -- National Review, December 29, 2008, p. 12.

Progressive "Chic"

  • "Speaking of Lenin and Hitler, here is a story -- originating with Kingsley Amis and told recently by Charles Moore, the British journalist. Amis 'knew a man who was an interior decorator. One day, the man was commissioned to improve the house of a rich, left-wing woman in Hampstead. Above the main staircase was a huge portrait of Lenin. Kingsley's friend decided on a tease: "Who's that?" he asked . ... "Hang on, don't tell me, don't tell me. ... I know: Hitler!"'" -- Jay Nordlinger, "Undies, Comrade?" National Review, July 6, 2009, p. 25.

The More Laws The Better

  • Still today this January 7, 2001, Letter to the Editor of the Los Angeles Times from a woman in West Hollywood remains a classic of the liberal mindset: "SPONSORING NEW LAWS: Re your Jan. 1 article on some of the state's most important 2001 laws: By my count of the 81 new laws, two were bipartisan, 70 were sponsored by Democrats and nine by Republicans. No wonder Republicans can cry 'too much government' -- they just don't bother to do a thing."

Our Next President

  • At the CNN-hosted "debate" held today, June 3, 2007, in New Hampshire, Wolf Blitzer asked the Democratic Presidential candidates whether "English should be the official language of the United States." All but Mike Gravel answered No. Barack Obama objected that "this is the kind of question that is designed precisely to divide us." Hillary Clinton responded with concern that "if it becomes official, that means in a place like New York City you can't print ballots in any other language." Pray for the nation.

El Presidente de los Estados Unidos

  • "I don't understand when people are going around worrying about, 'We need to have English only.' They want to pass a law, 'We want just, uh, we want English only.' Now, I agree that immigrants should learn English. I agree with that. But, but, understand this. Instead of worrying about whether, uh, immigrants can learn English -- they'll learn English -- you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish." -- Senator Barack Obama, July 8, 2008

Blaming Whitey

  • THE FOUNDRY blog at, April 3, 2009: BRAZILIAN PRESIDENT LUIZ INACIO LULA DA SILVA, MARCH 27, 2009: "This is a crisis that was caused by white people with blue eyes. And before the crisis, they looked as if they knew everything about economics." ASSOCIATED PRESS, APRIL 2, 2009: During a lunch at the Group of 20 summit in London, Obama shook hands with President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and said: “This is my man, right here. I love this guy."

The Benefit in Demeaning America

  • Paul Mirengoff at, April 5, 2009, considers various reasons why President Obama seems so compelled to criticize his own country. He concludes with a final possibility: "Obama's America bashing is the product of his ego. Scott [Johnson] suggested as much yesterday when he described Obama as 'bestriding the Western world in the guise of a philosopher king.' By distancing himself from America's foreign policy, he presents himself as something greater than a mere American president attempting to project American power and American ideas. Any president can do that. So grand is this American president that he will project his own special synthesis of world ideas, at least rhetorically. In doing so, not coincidentally, he will impress elites at home and abroad, and enhance his personal popularity, if not that of the country. His intellect will be admired and he will become a beloved figure throughout the world."

  • Stanley Kurtz: Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism

    Stanley Kurtz: Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism
    "Kurtz makes an in-depth exploration of the president’s connections to radical groups such as ACORN, UNO of Chicago, the Midwest Academy, and the Socialist Scholars Conferences. He explains what modern 'stealth' socialism is, how it has changed, and how it continues to influence the Democratic Party. He sheds light on what the New York Times called a 'lost chapter' of the president’s life—his years at Columbia—and proves that Obama’s youthful infatuation with socialism was not just a phase. Those ideas have shaped his political views and set the groundwork for the long-term strategy of his administration."
