It's old but I do not recall seeing before. Really not to be missed. Read the whole thing, I think it's not only worth it, but essential.

I've been off Steyn for a while, thinking he didn't have anything new to say. This is great. imho.

Probably a good idea to put your coffee down while reading too, remember that!

“If I were celebrated toilet photographer Warren Kinsella or leading Canadian Internet Nazi Lucy Warman, I’d sue. But I’m not. Nor, despite a flying visit to the Falklands and a couple of wet weekends in Wales, have I ever been attracted to sheep-shagging. But I imagine it feels a bit like dealing with Messrs Miller, Murphy and the Law R Cool kids: No matter how often you roger them senseless, they keep on bleating.”

He. is. HILARIOUS!

Academicians need to be regulated and licensed.

I love Mark Steyn, and this is one of the best ever, for sure. It is long, but be sure to take time to read the whole thing. This case just illustrates liberalism in a nutshell.

Unlike Signora Fallaci, I can’t claim face time with the Ayatollah. But I’ve read his writings in the scholarly translations, and cross-referenced them with the original Farsi, and I am familiar with his rulings on camel sweat, touching one’s beard after ejaculation, defecating in a dead-end street without the permission of its owner, and whether you can divorce your child bride before she’s begun menstruating. It’s unfortunate that the most influential Muslim of the late 20th century is a barbaric nutjob, but it happens to be the case.

Wow...!

I enjoy the don't-eat-your-sexual-partner stuff as much as the next infidel, but the challenge presented by Islam is not that the cities of the Western world will be filling up with sheep-shaggers. If I had to choose, I'd rather Mohammed Atta was downriver in Egypt hitting on the livestock than flying through the windows of Manhattan skyscrapers. But he’s not.

LOL!

Mark is an extraordinary treasure - a guy with a wonderful sense of wit and humor, coupled with great writing and verbal abilities, and sharp as a tack. No one can match him.

I dont think this is a General Chat topic.

This is an article about the lies of today and manipulation of information.

Recently people were told in the MSM that Maine’s governor Lepage told the NAACP to “kiss his butt.”

He actually told critics who said he was not bowing enought to special interest groups to kiss his butt.

The media lies

Daily.

Leftists lie

Constantly.

Let’s not chat about it.
