Exploiting Titan Headlines

Spiked
June 25, 2023

Tim Black in Spiked shakes his head at leftish snark over media coverage of the Titan submersible calamity. Commentators are upset that five super-rich and (supposedly) white people have pushed aside tales of migrants’ woes in the Mediterranean.

A Fatal Turning Point in American Politics

In UnHerd, Martin Gurri examines the severe double standard in the U.S. legal system that he feels explains former President Donald Trump’s recent felony conviction in New York. Both Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, Gurri asserts, seriously violated the law on multiple occasions and got off scot-free. This outrageous double standard, he writes, has serious implications for the principle of equality before the law.

European Farmers Defend their Livelihoods

Thomas O’Reilly in The European Conservative reports on the growing momentum of farmers from across Europe in protesting the EU’s technocracy, “Green Deal” overregulation and cheap agricultural imports – which are all devastating Europe’s food producers. O’Reilly’s on-the-scene observations of well-meaning farmers fighting for their livelihood don’t square with the media’s portrayal of them as right-wing extremists.

Dropping the Doublespeak on “Gender-Affirming” Care

Eithan Haim in City Journal examines leaked files from the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). The files display the stark contrast between WPATH members’ frank internal exchanges about the harms inflicted by early transgender treatment and the group’s outward doublespeak. Allowing gender ideology to override their professional judgment, Haim argues, reveals WPATH members as “charlatans of the highest order”.

How Apathy Facilitates Atrocity

In First Things, Simone Rizkallah recounts the story of how her great-grandparents narrowly escaped the Armenian Genocide. She notes how indifferent the world was to this severe injustice committed by Ottoman Turkey and how today’s growth of hostile Islamism and violent pro-Hamas demonstrations are being met with the same apathy.
