A profile of Bari Weiss

If you’ve read this site for even a short time, you’ll know about Bari Weiss, a liberal writer for the New York Times who, like me, specializes in criticizing the excesses of the Left while still believing that Republicans and the Trump administration are the most horrific aspect of American politics. (I, for one, don’t […]

Bari Weiss is live right now on Joe Rogan’s show, and at the moment she’s talking about Israel, Palestine, and the press coverage of the issue. Now she’s on to identity politics. The link is below: h/t: Grania

Bari Weiss returns with a column on Asia Argento, Avital Ronell, #MeToo, and the Shoe on the Other Foot

I don’t know how anyone can find this new New York Times column by Bari Weiss objectionable, but I know they’ll try. (Click on screenshot to read it.) The column is about two women who have been accused of sexual abuse. The first, Asia Argento, is an actor who was revealed to have paid $380,000 […]

HuffPo implies that Bari Weiss and Dave Rubin are “fancy racists”

Racism is the mot du jour for Authoritarian Leftists. Do you want to tar someone you don’t like? Just call them a “racist,” even if there’s no evidence they are bigots. No matter if they’re just conservatives or even moderates—”racist” will do in place of “Republican”, “libertarian,” or even “moderate Democrat.” Read and weep as the […]

Paul Krugman versus Bari Weiss

Well, one New York Times columnist has dissed another. Here’s Paul Krugman’s tweet referencing and disparaging Bari Weiss’s piece on the “Intellectual Dark Web” (see here and here). Until now, I didn't realize how oppressed I am. I mean, sure, I get to write for the Times, am very well paid, and am invited to […]

Criticisms (mine and others) of Bari Weiss’s “Intellectual Dark Web” piece

As Grania mentioned, I’m recovering from food coma (only the second time in my life), so I have time to write a bit. Two days ago I wrote about Bari Weiss’s New York Times piece about “The Intellectual Dark Web” (IDW), which I thought was one of her less successful columns. The people highlighted as […]

Bari Weiss in the NYT: the “intellectual dark web”

I received this link from many readers, so of course I had to read it. Plus it was a piece by Bari Weiss, a beleaguered Leftist who’s been ostracized by her fellow New York Times writers for going after the Authoritarian Left: A few quotes from Weiss: What is the I.D.W. and who is a […]

Bari Weiss on Bill Maher again

Bari Weiss was on Bill Maher before (see my post here), and now she’s back again talking about why she (a Leftist herself) has been so demonized by Leftists. Reader Diana MacPherson called my attention to Weiss’s second appearance, in which she analogizes her demonization with the story in Philip Roth’s The Human Stain.  Part of […]

More from Lewis and Clark College, Christina Hoff Sommers, and Bari Weiss

Just an update about the attempted deplatforming (and disruption) of Christina Hoff Sommers when she spoke at Lewis and Clark College Law School this Monday (see my report, and videos, here). First, the University administration has neither apologized to Sommers nor taken any action to discipline the students who disrupted her talk. (That might come, […]

Bari Weiss slammed by censorious NYT colleagues for an innocuous tweet

I’ve long maintained that liberal media like the New York Times and the New Yorker are increasingly tilting toward the Regressive Left. The strongest proof of this is what just happened to New York Times columnist Bari Weiss. Weiss is a Left-wing progressive who’s repeatedly criticized the Authoritarian Left. She’s committed the ideological sins of […]
