My column today at Real Clear Politics compares Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Stalin, and her Green New Deal to his five-year plans that left millions dead. Stalin isn’t off-limits to those looking for historical comparisons, but for some reason Adolf Hitler generally is. Of course no one is saying that Ocasio-Cortez is either Stalin or Hitler.
I had somehow missed the story last week of how Judge Jeanine Pirro was being disowned by Fox News for her comments about sharia law and Rep. Ilhan Omar.

As Carlson correctly says, “The left will tolerate no criticism at all” and will try to
The latest attack by Media Matters on Tucker Carlson happily gives me occasion to celebrate a February essay by Jack Cashill on “the death of irreverence.” Cashill’s topic was Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who at that time looked like he might lose his job over a picture in his 1984 medical school yearbook that depicted
