"Regulating" the Will of the People

I'm still recuperating from my courthouse exertions in London last week. However, a couple of thoughts on the passing parade: ~As I first wrote over two decades ago, Islamic supremacism attaches great importance to the annexation of the public space. To mark the Canadian centennial of 1967, half of Dominion Square in Montreal was renamed Place du Canada. Half-a-century later, during a Defund-the-Police protest, the magnificent statue of Sir John A Macdonald was toppled and decapitated, and the craven city council decided he would not be returned to his pride of place. But these are mere poseur flourishes. (Pierre) Trudeaupian nationalism is dead, and the "anti-colonialist" nihilism that supplanted it is a mere death-spasm of ...

Pride Before the Fall

Programming note: Tomorrow, Wednesday, I'll be here for our midweek Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet at 3pm North American Eastern - which is 8pm British Summer Time/9pm Central European. Hope you can swing by. ~I believe there's only another seven or twelve weeks till "Pride Month" ends, so I trust readers will forgive me for belatedly attending to a story I didn't get to because of my legal travails. In Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, the festivities began with the Pride Parade being disrupted by pro-Hamas protestors chanting "No Pride in Genocide". The American right mostly played it as just another pass-the-popcorn I-don't-have-a-dog-in-this-fight moment: Pro Palestine ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

The Party's Over/Just In Time

Our Song of the Week department isn't really a request spot. However, following last week's selection, Steyn Clubber Raymond Kujawa wrote from Washington State: My father was a weekend accordionist, and I went with him on a few of his gigs in the mid 70's in some of the social halls in the suburbs around Philadelphia. 'I'll Be Seeing You' is definitely end of the night material, but I'll always remember the tune my dad's group would play (tenor sax, accordion/Cordovox, drums) would play as the final number of the night, 'The Party's Over.' My dad really did love his standards. He and I shared that. Would love to hear any anecdotes on that song...
