Stanley Kurtz is an American conservative commentator.
Career and works 
Kurtz is a Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and a former Adjunct fellow with Hudson Institute, with a special interest in America's "culture wars." His writings on the family, feminism, homosexuality, affirmative action, and campus "political correctness" have appeared regularly for publications such as National Review, Policy Review, The Weekly Standard, The Wall Street Journal, and Commentary. Kurtz graduated from Haverford College and holds a Ph.D. in social anthropology from Harvard University. He did his field work in India and taught at Harvard and the University of Chicago. He has published extensively on family life, child rearing, religion, and psychology in various parts of the world.
During the 2008 election cycle, Kurtz published several editorials that discussed relationships between Barack Obama and some Chicago church leaders such as Jeremiah Wright, and former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers. According to Kurtz, the educational program on which Obama and Ayers collaborated was ultimately unsuccessful. His 2010 book Radical-in-Chief claims that President Barack Obama is a socialist. In 2012 Kurtz reported the discovery of meeting minutes of the Chicago chapter of the New Party from the 1990s, describing involvement by Obama, then a candidate for the Illinois state senate. According to Kurtz, the minutes record that Obama asked for the New Party's endorsement and joined the group (claims denied by the Obama campaign and its Fight the Smears website) in addition to signing the New Party "Candidate Contract".
