Skip to comments.Bowing to the Mob [Mark Steyn]
Posted on 09/23/2012 5:10:36 AM PDT by Servant of the Cross
I see the Obama campaign has redesigned the American flag, and very attractive it is too. Replacing the 50 stars of a federal republic is the single O logo symbolizing the great gaping maw of spendaholic centralization. And where the stripes used to be are a handful of red daubs, eerily mimicking the bloody finger streaks left on the pillars of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi as its staff were dragged out by a mob of savages to be tortured and killed. What better symbol could one have of American foreign policy? Who says the slick hollow vapid marketing of the Obama campaign doesnt occasionally intersect with reality?
On the latter point, after a week and a half of peddling an utterly false narrative of what happened in Libya, the United States government is apparently beginning to discern that there are limits to what even Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice can say with a straight face. The official line that the slaughter of American officials was some sort of improvised movie review that got a little out of hand is now in the process of modification to something bearing a less patently absurd relationship to what actually happened. That should not make any more forgivable the grotesque damage that the administration has done to the bedrock principle of civilized society: freedom of speech.

A Steyn classic.
A picture tells a thousand words .....
Steyn is a treasure.
Brilliant, as usual.
Mark Steyn ping.
Freepmail me, if you want on or off the Mark Steyn ping list.
Thanks for posting. Steyn is, as usual, spot on!
A few minutes ago, I sent the following email out to my list:
I recently sent you an email with a link to Pat Condell’s videos (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=pat+condell+channel&oq=pat+condell+channel&gs_l=youtube.12...0.0.0.12818.104.22.168.0.0.0.0.0..0.0...0.0...1ac..) I have not watched them all, but I am going to.
The problem is, Romney and Ryan and the GOP haven’t watched them, and most Americans haven’t.
Don’t know how to get them to go viral, but I am damn sure going to try.
On the subject of murderous death cults, you might be interested in perusing this site: http://www.politicalislam.com.
I have read a series of papers there entitled “An Ethical Basis for War” which I found to be very informative and quite FRightening. I have attached the overview paper to this email. (http://www.politicalislam.com/blog/an-ethical-basis-for-war/)
I sent this video to all of you the other day — you fer shure need to watch it, if you have not already done so:
The bottom line is that we must somehow cause non-Moslems to come to understand that Moslems mean to subjugate, enslave, or kill all of us non-Moslems. Not only the West is at risk — the entire world is at risk!
If you have the time and the interest, you might want to check these sites out — we may not be at war with Islam, but it is for damn sure that Islam is at war with us!
Great paragraph, well sketched.
Good get, FRiend Servant, good article and post.
Someone ought to collect Steyn's columns and articles (and John Ransom's, and Bill Buckley's) and print them on archival paper, and then bury them inconspicuously in a Tibetan lamasery or twelve, and maybe a couple of Sinai monasteries, where they can ride out a thousand years of darkness if need be, to give our descendants an idea of what we had to contend with -- if we fail.
Did some patriotic U.S. flag manufacturer decide to punish flag burners?
Steyn hits another one out of the park!
Thanks for the ping.
No one does it better than Steyn.
The other consideration is few Mormons donate to Hillary...
most acerbic Steyn I’ve read
