Taki

Well, I’ve made it official: I’m a big fan of Taki Magazine. I have now added it as a favorite to Google Chrome and iPhone Safari. I think it produces at least five great pieces a week and, more importantly, the ratio of great pieces to crap/middling pieces is good. Just last week, I ran across these two pieces by Steve Sailer:

Anarchy in the U.S.A., which offered this great phrase: “the bipartisan Washington establishment that has grown rich off the conventional wisdom of Invade the World/Invite the World.”

The other Sailer piece actually linked to a different Sailer piece, but that piece featured this great phrase: “the dominant ideological logic is trending toward making it inevitable that all 7 billion noncitizens on Earth be assumed to have civil rights to move to America.”

It also offers a hilarious weekly rundown of the previous week’s news (at least, I think/hope it’s a weekly feature). Excerpt from the most recent:

Rolling Stone magazine has been publishing for so long that it once represented the counterculture and now is a shameless apologist for the globalist establishment. In the wake of the Orlando massacre, constitutional law professor David [cough] Cohen recently pecked out a screed titled “Why It’s Time to Repeal the Second Amendment”:

I teach the Constitution for a living. I revere the document when it is used to further social justice and make our country a more inclusive one….But sometimes we just have to acknowledge that the Founders and the Constitution are wrong. This is one of those times. We need to say loud and clear: The Second Amendment must be repealed….In the face of yet another mass shooting, now is the time to acknowledge a profound but obvious truth – the Second Amendment is wrong for this country and needs to be jettisoned.

Cohen misses a huge point—if the imaginary gang-rape victim in Rolling Stone‘s infamously fraudulent feature article “A Rape on Campus” had been armed with a gun, she could have easily fended off her nonexistent attackers. Here’s hoping that the University of Virginia frat house that’s suing the magazine for $25 million is able to Gawker these journalistically negligent globalist tools out of existence.
