Judea Pearl's remarks and mine from the LA Press Club event.
You deserve it! You're the best! And your essay in today's Commentary (https://www.commentary.org/articles/bari-weiss/resist-woke-revolution/) was the best anti-woke writing I've ever read! I'm going to be more courageous in the face of this terrible onslaught of untruth and just plain wickedness. May God bless you, Bari!
Well, now, why did this mean so much to me? I don't know, but it did. Be courageous, young lady, not just about the ones and the things you care about, but in all things, speak freedom, truth and courage. Thanks, and glad I subscribe to you.
What Bari and her colleagues have done her at Substack is preserve the true nature of journalism and poltical discourse necessary in a free society that respects individual rights and our obligation to the common good, the "Hillel" method, or "scientific method" even, of presenting the ideas of someone who thinks differently and their evidence, then present our own, and our conclusion, and trust that readers will discover the truth. This must be defended and cultivated here if we are ever able to to what Daniel Pearl did, and bring attention to the horrible atrocities that happen in other parts of the world. Let us also not forget, in Daniel's name, the hundreds, if not thousands, of journalists who are killed every year simply for reporting on corruption and atrocities occurring in their countries and communities. May the light of Truth overcome the evil that lurks, hidden in the darkness.
Congratulations Bari. Thank you for inspiring all of us to stand strong and courageous.
Bari, the newly- woke Superman is destined for the ash heap of history. You have replaced him as the defender of "truth, justice and the American way". Mazel tov!
Bari, your eloquence and "Common Sense" with these difficult topics is brilliant. When I read your articles or watch your interviews, I find that you consistently articulate how I feel and what I think....way better than I ever could. Wish you could go around speaking at synagogues around the country. I think the most frustrating thing for me is the push back from our own community. Thank you for speaking up and being the voice of reason. And, of course, Mazel Tov on this well earned honor.
Your work is brilliant, as are these words and this award.
This is extremely well deserved. "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." Gandhi
Congratulations, you deserve this. Thanks for your reporting.
Congratulations Bari! Well deserved. Your courage is exactly what the world needs right now.
“ Right now we live in an age of the mob. Of groupthink. Of black-and-white purity politics where people are slotted into bad and good, pure and impure, the community of the righteous and the good and those who fall outside of it. We live in an age of digital book burning and of 21st century witch burnings. We live in an era in which everything is seen through the lens of politics. In which nothing, including relationships, falls outside of it.”
Really enjoyed this, exactly what is necessary at this point in our discourse.
This is fantastic on two fronts. First, an acknowledgement of your great work and integrity. Second, there still exist an institution that values journalists like you. Congratulations!
Congrats! A well deserved honor, and you've shown more courage than you know.
Congratulations! Well deserved.
Great you deserve , wait deserve is not the word , you earned the award deserve is used as being owed something sorry I used that word . I just wish you had a platform that could reach more people , it is sorely needed thee days as the masses are inundated with lies and half truths . We need more like you if this country is to be saved . Congratulations hope this is the first of many awards .
They certainly gave the award to the right person, for right now! I also listened to you talk on the Sunday Special with Ben Shapiro & also signed up as soon as I could. I admire your depth of COURAGE, CALMNESS & COMMON SENSE. Keep going!! We are pretty far down the road of really big nutty troubles, here in Canada too! We need YOU & YOUR voice SOO MUCH!
It DOES feel to me that, You & Ben ARE the right people for this time in history.
