Eight years ago -- two generations of college students ago -- I visted Yale to speak about my just-published first book, The Death of the Grown-Up.  

What happened back then offers a little context for what is happening today.

From October 19, 2007: "Making the West Disappear."

Earlier this week, I took a trip down memory lane to Yale, where I happily attended college almost 25 years ago in the second decade of its co-ed existence. Which meant that I was plenty old enough to be the mother of the undergraduates I was addressing in the traditionally genteel setting of a "master's tea." The tea, attended by about two dozen, was in beauteous Branford, one of Yale's 12 residential colleges, all carved stone and grassy courtyard.

My weekly segment on The Sam Sorbo Show, with thanks to Tundra Tabloids.

One thing I could never master when I was writing a weekly newspaper column was the concept of the "evergreen," the column that was so general and non-specifically applicable to any old thing that it could be dropped in for a week's holiday.

Or so I thought.

"Burnt Offerings on the Altar of Multiculturalism," which I wrote eleven and a half years ago in the aftermath of the London Underground bombings, is a column that has appeared a few times over the years. I didn't realize it when I wrote it, but it is so general and non-specifically applicable to any old thing that it can be dropped into the aftermath of any act of jihad

So here it is, again.


Only one faith on Earth may be more messianic than Islam: multiculturalism. Without it -- without its fanatics who believe all civilizations are the same -- the engine that projects Islam into the unprotected heart of Western civilization...

Europe -- no doubt, the USA also -- is seeded through and through with Islamic cells.

In the aftermath of the latest activation of such a cell to engage in cowardly mass murder against defenceless innocents (i.e., Islamic jihad) in Paris, there seems to be reviving a misguided drive to recommit US forces to the Middle East -- even as the threat to the West is deep within the West, and still on the march into the West, as masses and masses of Muslims arrive to Islamize, i.e., extinguish, the indigenous cultures of the Western world.

The solution, the salavation, if there is to be any, must begin at home, first and foremost with  the reactivation of borders and strict immigration control to halt the transformation of the USA into the northern tip of Latin America, and, simultaneously, with the rejection of federal "resettlement" programs that are literally replacing the European-descended...

From a  campus formerly thought of as Yale....

Dear President Peter Salovey, Dean Jonathan Holloway, and senior members of the Yale administration:

Next Yale, an alliance of Yale students of color and our allies, have come together to demand that Peter Salovey and the Yale administration implement immediate and lasting policies that will reduce the intolerable racism that students of color experience on campus every day.

In light of recent events, including the exclusion of black women from a Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity party, a letter from a Yale administrator condoning cultural appropriation, and the debate surrounding the renaming of Calhoun College, it should now be obvious that the state of the racial climate on Yale’s campus is unconscionable. These specific incidents reflect an escalation of a long history of racism...
