The news media and the pundits are wading through another fog trying to figure out why the latest mass murderer went on a rampage. As a sociologist who has written on this subject before, I can attest that mass murderers have much in common, and this is especially true of young killers. To begin with, let's [...]

HYPOCRITES SHINE AT TONY AWARDS

A national writer for the Associated Press, Jocelyn Noveck, described the Tony Awards as an event "where tolerance and inclusion were constant themes." So this is what Robert De Niro was doing—exercising his "tolerance"—when he screamed "F*** Trump"? At least De Niro didn't threaten violence against the president, which he did previously ("I'd like to punch [...]

There is no celebrity chef more adored by elites nationwide than Mario Batali. They particularly like the way he champions women's rights and the rights of the poor. And so far, at least, they seem untroubled by revelations that he abuses both women and the poor. Maybe that's because they still approve of the way he [...]

ABC’S BEEF WITH ROSEANNE BARR IS PHONY

Roseanne Barr has been making vile comments for years, so why—all of a sudden—has she crossed the line? In 1990, when she grabbed her crotch, spit on the ground, and gave a screeching rendition of our national anthem at a baseball game, the cultural elites who now hate her were fine with her stunt. It's not [...]
