Steyn damns the Right for giving in on everything that matters


Laura Perrins recently implored us to listen Mark Steyn’s latest audio Q&A. I second Laura’s recommendation.

As is his custom, Steyn has now used the surfeit of questions received for that live audio broadcast to produce a supplementary video. Erudite and excoriating, the latest edition of Mark’s Mailbox finds Steyn in superlative form.

Of particular interest to a UK audience will be a section (from 08:00) on Sammy Woodhouse, a victim of what Mark Steyn calls ‘one of the most evil phenomena of our times’.

Impregnated at 14 by one of a Rotherham rape gang, Sammy recently was back in the news as the young woman whose convicted rapist, ‘Mad Ash’ Hussain, had been contacted about care proceedings by Rotherham social services (contact which apparently was made during 2017, when the same council was nominated for, wait for it, ‘social work employer of the year’).

Steyn talks movingly of ‘one of the bravest women I’ve ever met’. By courageously waiving her anonymity, ‘no one did more to expose . . . the silence of an evil state in Rotherham’.

During the broadcast Mark skilfully gathers the common threads from various questions and builds an impassioned jeremiad: ‘Culture trumps economics because culture is where you live . . . You can never have truly conservative government in a liberal culture.’

Steyn seethes at how, while the Left has without even a fight ‘redefined marriage and abolished biology’ on both side of the Atlantic, ‘the Right isn’t playing for a single thing that matters. It’s pathetic.’

Exasperated, at one point Mark concedes: ‘I’m getting a bit worked up here.’ You will too, if you watch and listen to this captivating broadcast.
