Albert Mohler: Robert Mugabe – An Experiment Of The Left

Billy Graham

Robert Mugabe, the strongman of Zimbabwe for the last 37 years, has finally fallen from power. Although he was seen as a liberator when he toppled the government of Rhodesia in 1980, he quickly became the de facto dictator, ultimately killing 20,000 people from an opposing tribe.

Several Western universities awarded honorary degrees to Mugabe in the mid ’80s, only to rescind them when his genocide became apparent.

Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal rightly affirms that the Left must be held to account. Stephens says, “Zimbabwe’s tragedy is just a fuller version of a post-colonial story of disastrous ideological experiments accompanied by foreigners who cheered those experiments and then looked the other way when they failed. The world’s poorest countries deserve better than to be the petri dish for Western experts who know too little and a field of fantasy for Western progressives who dream too much.”

On that story, Bret Stephens deserves to have the last word.

Greg Thornbury: No Questions Allowed

Greg Thornbury

When Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bret Stephens left the Wall Street Journal editorial board for The New York Times recently, the change raised a few eyebrows. Stephens, who had been very critical of then-candidate Trump, perhaps fit better at the “Old Grey Lady,” in this day and age.

Few people, however, thought the move would make national headlines. But then Bret Stephens published an Op-Ed with his contrarian and conservative view that dared to call into question the absolute certainty with which climate change advocate make their apocalyptic claims.

To readers of The New York Times, even casting the slightest doubt on the political agenda of climate change advocates sent liberal readers of the paper into a tizzy.

The message was clear, and it was Orwellian: disagree with the conclusions of the progressive left, and they will silence you, then crucify you.
