Harry Potter And The Illiberal Liberals: Rowling Returns Kennedy Award Over Trans Tweets

September 2, 2020 by


By Matt Philbin ~ At the first sign of left-wing infighting, normal people instinctively reach for the popcorn. But in this case, it’s hard not to sympathize with J.K. Rowling. One day, you’re a liberal celebrity in good standing, and the next you’re returning a humanitarian award you got from the frickin’ Kennedys. That’s right. […]

Mongo Wept: HBO Max Puts Race Disclaimer On ‘Blazing Saddles’

August 15, 2020 by


By Matt Philbin ~ “You’ve got to remember that these are just simple GenYs. These are people of the internet. The common clay of the new Woke. You know … morons.” Is that quote: a) A bastardization of one of the dozens (hundreds?) of funny lines in Blazing Saddles? b) An HBO Max executive arguing […]

Too Manly? ‘Green-Feminine Stereotyping’ Contributes To Climate Change

April 6, 2019 by


By Matt Philbin ~ Well, we seem to have hit peak intersectionality, at least it relates to the religion of climate change. (Intersectionality is the modern progressive faith that all the world’s ills can be attributed to the existence of white male genitalia). We all know that global warming, like everything else, will inordinately impact […]

Men Don’t like Being Told Manliness Is A Malady. WashPost Doesn’t Get Why

January 15, 2019 by


By Matt Philbin ~ Here’s an outside-the-box — not to say crazy (are you allowed to say crazy anymore?) — suggestion for the gang at the American Psychology Association: If you’re going to issue what Washington Post columnist Monica Hesse calls an “an indictment … of rigid, traditional masculinity,” you might want to talk to […]

WashPost: Elvis Medal Of Freedom ‘Ugly Message’ To Black People

November 16, 2018 by


By Matt Philbin ~ Congratulations to The Washington Post pop music critic Chris Richards, who on Nov. 15 covered himself in glory by earning the Post’s coveted Triple Crown. With one brief piece, Richards earned Angry Liberal of the Week; and Dog Whistle Discerner; and won the “Politicize This!” Challenge. Richards was in a snit because the late […]

Lefty Insanity: U.N. Cow Fart Catchers

October 13, 2018 by


By Matt Philbin ~ This column explores the thought and behavior that often leads to tenured positions at major universities or punditry contracts with CNN. Readers with pacemakers or other heart problems proceed at their own risk. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has given the planet 10 years to live. Or something. This […]

Alt-Left Insanity: Vegan Ecofeminists Resist Violence Against Female Animals

August 4, 2018 by


By Matt Philbin ~ Cleaning the gerbil cage of progressive thought, weekly. It’s a pressing question: Why are three out of four American vegans women? Well, women are more verbal than men, and vegans won’t shut up about being vegan … or is it just that men really are smarter? I kid! I kid, because […]

Alt-Left Insanity: Raising My Child Amid My Climate Apocalypse Fantasies

July 21, 2018 by


By Matt Philbin ~ Plumbing the cesspool of the hard-left mind. To suffer through Roy Scranton’s New York Times oped, “Raising My Child in a Doomed World,” is to come away wondering how a guy so hang-dog depressing and lacking in discernable masculine qualities managed to attract a woman — sorry, a “partner” in Scranton-speak […]

Alt-Left Insanity: The Founding Fathers Would Fight Climate Change

July 7, 2018 by


By Matt Philbin ~ Warning: The items in this column, though weird, surreal, distasteful and kooky, are by no means aberrations. Really. Lefties think like this. … juft then Jefferfon rode up on his favorite horfe, Priuf, looking quite pleafed with himfelf. “Adamf,” he called, “are you ftill riding that old oat guzzler of yourf?!” […]

‘I Want To Be A Black Lesbian’ — Python Veteran Slams BBC’s PC Comedies

July 6, 2018 by


By Matt Philbin ~ “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!” True, but the PC Inquisition is getting mighty predictable. The fetish for diversity reached a whole new level of stupid recently as the BBC introduced its new direction. Programming would emphasize “stories that haven’t been told” and “the voices we haven’t yet heard,” according to U.K. […]

How To Avoid Liberal Articles Instructing You How To Talk To Your Family At Thanksgiving

November 23, 2016 by


By Matt Philbin ~ Thanksgiving is upon us, and so are the seemingly endless articles about the dread of meeting politically incompatible relatives across the dinner table and [shudder] actually conversing with them. Call it the insufferable encountering the unimpressed. For most of American history, we’ve managed this discomfiture by acting like adults, being civil […]

Slate: Hillary’s Pantsuits Are Lesbian (Or Something)

January 16, 2016 by


By Matt Philbin ~ Hillary Clinton is not a lesbian, but her wardrobe did stay at a Holiday Inn Express for a softball tournament. So says Vanessa Vitiello Urquhart writing on Slate’s “Outward” page. “Hillary Clinton’s sense of style has been criticized for as long as she has been on the national political scene,” writes […]
