Hillsdale, Hamas terror, and announcing the Logos Fellowship.
October was a tumultuous month, with the tragic Hamas attacks in Israel and the resulting chaos here at home. I taught a course at Hillsdale College, exposed more institutional rot in our most prestigious universities, and announced the new Manhattan Institute Logos Fellowship.
In total, my work generated approximately 50 million direct media impressions.
Teaching at Hillsdale College
I was honored to announce my new part-time position as a distinguished fellow at Hillsdale College. In addition to my full-time role at Manhattan Institute, I will visit the Hillsdale campus each fall and teach short courses, deliver lectures, and write for Imprimis. This month, I taught a one-credit course titled “Culture War and Public Policy,” featuring readings from Jean-François Lyotard, Max Weber, Michel Foucault, and others.
The Truth About “Decolonization”
In an op-ed, I exposed the connection between BLM, DSA, academic “decolonization,” and Hamas. Following the October 7 attacks in Israel, the foot soldiers of intersectionality—notably, Black Lives Matter, the Democratic Socialists of America, and the academic “decolonization” movement—celebrated the militants who murdered civilians, raped women, and butchered babies. They must be held to account.
Civilizational Suicide at Harvard
In an op-ed for City Journal, I revealed how Harvard paid a nonbinary Latinx academic to “decolonize Harvard,” which, he said, is a “settler-colonial, genocidal, and Eurocentric institution” that must be “abolish[ed].” The same ethno-radicals who cheer Hamas’s destruction of civilization abroad also want to commit civilizational suicide here at home.
Announcing the Logos Fellowship
I proudly announced the Manhattan Institute Logos Fellowship, a year-long accelerator program I will be leading for conservative journalists, activists, and opinion leaders. Fellows will bring a specific “culture war” project to the program, which our team will help nurture over the course of the year. The goal is to help move these independent projects from conception to execution, so that they begin to shape the discourse and change public policy.
