Wokeness at Warp Speed

WhatsApp

A few months ago I observed to Tucker Carlson that the difference between "Bush Derangement Syndrome" and "Trump Derangement Syndrome" was that the former was largely contained to a visceral loathing for the President himself, whereas the latter has been extended to anyone who voted for him - ie, the half of the electorate comprised of "racists", "fascists" and "white supremacists". Now TDS rampages on, to consume half the Democrats, too. Say what you like about Nancy Pelosi, but she took back the House by running the Dems as a "moderate" party that talked about things like voter concern over health care. A year on, and most of what the party's presidential candidates are yakking about - busing, the needs of trans-African-Americans, open ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

(Ah, the Apple Trees) When the World Was Young

WhatsApp

Today is le 14 juillet, Bastille Day, France's fĂȘte nationale, and I chance to find myself on French soil. So, in the waning hours of the national holiday, it seemed appropriate to pick something suitably Gallic for our Chanson de la Semaine. How about..? Je me lĂšve et je te bouscule Tu n'te rĂ©veilles pas Comme d'habitude... Which you may know better as: And now the end is near And so I face The final curtain... I confess a preference for Gilles Thibault's French text over Paul Anka's English rewrite, but, if we're going with anglicized franco-pop I think we should try and pick something that at least retains something of the flavor of the old country. So for something more evocatively Gallic we have to turn to Johnny Mercer, anglo ...

A Clubman's Notes

The Pig-Headed Marplots

WhatsApp

Welcome to the final installment of our current Tale for Our Time - published in 1903, Erskine Childers' classic The Riddle of the Sands. Thank you so much for your various reactions to this latest radio serialization. Sol, a very convivial shipmate on last year's maiden voyage of the Mark Steyn cruise, has provided a running commentary most evenings, collectively arguing that Childers' own tragic biography is the key to understanding this tale: The history and background of Childers is crucial for this story. Thank you for including it in the always-superb introduction. This is quite a reveal from the author a few chapters back: '...for Davies broke down the last barriers of reserve and let me see his whole mind. He loved this girl and he ...
