"Surely the first time in Dutch political history that a fruitarian had killed a fruit Aryan."

Unbelievable. How does he do it?

In Holland, a militant vegan killed the flamboyant homosexual nativist Pim Fortuyn during the election campaign. Surely the first time in Dutch political history that a fruitarian had killed a fruit Aryan.

Absolutely, positively the Quote of the Week.

I almost gagged laughing it this myself.

I've argued with Canadians and Europeans on-line who are more afraid of Bush and the "Christian Right" than they are of radical Islam. This piece should be required reading for those people. But as Steyn points out, "Almost any issue worth talking about has been ruled taboo." Those allegedly super-smart Europeans are committing cultural suicide, they are throwing everything away, and they simply haven't a clue what awaits them.

Continental voters, faced with a choice between Eurodee and Eurodum, have been turning elsewhere

Great description of the EU.

A collapsed birthrate, accelerating immigration, lavish welfare, an evasive political culture, phony transnational structures: For Europe, this is the Perfect Storm.

When people don't feel positive about the future, they are less likely to have children. Unless Europe pulls itself out of the destructive spiral of socialism, these trends will not only continue they will accelerate.

I'm sending this quote to all my friends! :-) I'm also going to Holland next year, where I'll close my eyes to everything but the tulip festival and the art museums!

DO NOT - ever - eat while reading a Mark Steyn column, or you will be cleaning your monitor after you start belly-laughing...

Today we took another step towards the Islamic Republic of the Netherlands.

Today we celebrate Sinterklaas, it's a festivity for children (the guy was saint). But today also was the sugarfest, the end of ramadan. So in 25% of the schools in the Randstad (the Rotterdam-Amsterdam-Utrecht area) put Sinterklaas on another day, and celebrated sugaerfest instead. And in some schools they removed the cross from the headgear of Sinterklaas, because 'some people could take a cross as an offense'.

And this from the same people (the apologists) who claim that islam is a tolerant religion.

It's a recurring theme in the Bible that when people abandon God, they lose their political freedom. I think over the next few decades, Europe will (again) see how true that is. People who can't learn from the Hitler experience are probably unteachable. Traditional religious belief is much stronger in the U.S.A, and I think that is one factor that makes us take the Islamic threat more seriously.

Oh my goodness, that has to be a candidate for Quote Of The Year.

I wonder how long it will be before that infidel art is destroyed by Islamists?

I swear, if I didn't know Steyn was talking about Europe, I would have thought he was talking about the United States!!

A little intentional silliness (with serious commentary woven in) as opposed to the unintentional silliness of our friend.
