  • Dutch anti-Islam party to hold Prophet Mohammad cartoon competition

    Reuters via Yahoo ^ | 06/12/2018 | Reuters
    The Freedom Party of Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders will hold a competition of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad, it said on Tuesday. The party said the plan to hold the competition in the party's secure offices in Dutch Parliament had been approved by the Dutch Counter-terrorism Agency NCTV. Cartoons depicting Mohammad have provoked violent responses in the past. In 2015, Islamist gunmen killed 12 people at the Paris offices of the French secularist satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, which had printed cartoons of the Prophet. In 2005, the publication in a Danish newspaper of a dozen cartoons depicting the Prophet...

    A University of California, Berkeley task force is blaming conservative students for destructive protests on campus, saying that hosting conservative speakers was “likely to incite a violent reaction.” The report was filed on April 10 by a Commission on Free Speech that Chancellor Carol Christ created last October to “analyze events featuring external speakers” on campus in the wake of a series of disruptive protests against planned appearances by speakers such as Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Ann Coulter.

    There is a girl in Toronto who needs a lot of patience and understanding. This 11-year-old child made a mistake that grew and grew until it became an international story. She told her family, her school and the police that a stranger had followed her and attacked her with scissors, slashing her hijab. Twice. The child's brother reported that he had been witness to it all. The girl described her attacker and the event in some detail. The man was Asian, he was smiling, he was dressed in black, the scissors had a blue handle. After the police went to...

    AMERICAN GREATNESS Power, Sex, and Politics Angelo Codevilla Power,” Henry Kissinger observed, “is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” Men, but mostly women, have been trading erotic services for access to power since time began. The ruling class’s recent carrying on over a supposed epidemic of powerful grabbers and gropers runs counter to common sense and experience. If Henry, who resembled less a prince than a frog even in his youth found his connections with power and wealth sufficient to satisfy his longings, so can anyone similarly placed. Nor is there any evidence of a sudden increase in morality or restraint having cut...

    U.S. airlines have received some well-deserved criticism lately for their routine mistreatment of customers. But maybe it’s time air travelers also look in the mirror to see why so many jetliners have become venues for Mile High cage fights. Those folks might see a reflection of the Ugly American. The whiny American. The entitled American. Just this week, we’ve been treated to a fight night on a plane at Burbank Bob Hope Airport in California that ended with a Southwest Airlines flight attendant buried somewhere in the scrum. At Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, passengers started duking it out...
  • Man Removed From Jet Is Kentucky Doctor With Criminal Record

    The man dragged from a full United Express flight by airport police in Chicago is a Kentucky physician who was convicted more than a decade ago of felony charges involving his prescribing of drugs. But while the passenger's unflattering history quickly became the focus of attention, there's no indication that his past influenced how he was treated or that the airline or police were aware of his background. And it's unlikely that officials would have known anything about him other than basic identifying information such as his name and address, if that. A person with knowledge of the Sunday evening...

    America's police will be safer when they admit they have a problem, Pres. Obama declared on Sunday at a bilateral event with the prime minister of Spain in Madrid. Fielding a question on Sunday, July 10, about the violence against police in Dallas, Texas last week, which left five officers dead, Obama said police officers will be safer once they acknowledge their failures: "There are legitimate issues that have been raised, and there’s data and evidence to back up the concerns that are being expressed by these protesters. "And if police organizations and departments acknowledge that there’s a problem and...

    This latest attack in Brussels would not have been possible without this network of native-born, disaffected Muslims. And for that, Europe has no one to blame but itself. ___ These attacks come five months after the Paris attacks that shocked the world and took the lives of 130 men and women. These terrorists had pledged their allegiance to ISIS and were carrying out what they believed to be holy jihad. Although most of the perpetrators were killed during the attacks or in the days after in a suburb of Paris, one man eluded the police. That man, Salah Abdeslam, was...

    This is the new Britain, the Britain that David Cameron and Theresa May have made, and all the others who internalized the idea that anyone who has any problem with this kind of behavior is a racist, islamophobic, anti-muslim bigot. Britain has banned me and other freedom fighters from the country while inviting in people like these men, who think non-Muslim girls are there to be used. There will be much, much more of this in Britain. "Three Somali men who gang-raped white 16-year-old girl in bathroom of hotel where they had stayed to celebrate Eid are jailed for 30...

    Why was this girl at a party with Muslim migrants from Iraq? Because the Belgian media and political establishment keep repeating that the "refugees" are harmless, and that Europeans should welcome them, and that any concern about them shows that you're a racist-islamophobic-anti-muslim-bigot. This is the result. Certainly she behaved irresponsibly in being there at all and drinking enough to pass out, which is not to say anything justifies their behavior (except the Quran, that is, which allows Muslim men to use non-Muslim women as sex slaves, "captives of the right hand," 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). But the even...

    As Europe struggles to cope with a migrant crisis that's already the worst refugee catastrophe since World War II and which threatens to spiral even further out of control once the weather turns in the spring, officials have offered a variety of possible "solutions" to the various refugee-related "problems" that have cropped up. Some are better than others. One idea that didn't go over too well was a suggestion by Cologne mayor Henriette Reker, who last month said it was German women's responsibility to keep would-be assailants at arms length and to adopt an appropriate "code of conduct." That, some...

    If you’ve ever wondered just how low leftwing CNN is willing to stoop in its never-ending quest to smear Christians as bigots, the video below should help answer that question. Using a series of snide and leading questions, just one day after her husband was murdered by Islamic terrorist Syed Farook, CNN’s Gary Tuchman attempted to get the widow of Nicholas Thalasinos to indict her own husband as a Christian, anti-Muslim bigot. You might want to take a blood pressure pill before pressing play: (Video) RedState correctly points out that there was a legitimate way for CNN to pursue this

I’m well aware that they’ve abandoned any sense of right, wrong, or common decency. I’m wondering about the rank and file. After all, even Darth Vader had some good in him, so I have to assume there are at least a few Dem supporters who found Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony disconcerting. Maybe I’m just a hopeless optimist who thinks even someone willing to vote for Hillary might...

    Bill Maher spoke with Ayaan Hirsi Ali tonight about a recurring topic of his, radical Islam, and spent quite a lot talking about liberal reactions to it. Maher brought up how liberals have targeted Hirsi Ali and may have also had the Muhammad cartoon contest on the brain when he asked why so many liberals, who normally “hate blaming the victim,” do so when it comes to radical Islam. Hirsi Ali said she’s not sure why liberals do that

    May 28, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The cover of TIME magazine released on May 15, depicting a university pennant with the lone word “Rape” on it, marks a new height in public awareness (and debate) of what has come to be known as the “rape culture” – a prevalence of male domination, incursion, and violation against the sexual dignity and bodily sovereignty of females through physical actions, verbal harassment, mass entertainment content, structural norms in the workplace, and social behavior. First coined in the 1970s, “rape culture” has only entered the popular progressive vocabulary in recent years, starting in feminist blogs....

    State District Judge Jeanine Howard of Dallas has removed herself from a controversial rape case after questioning the victim's innocence and sentencing the admitted rapist to community service at a rape crisis center. Yes, really. Howard voluntary recused herself following an interview with the Dallas Morning News last week, in which she said the girl, 14 at the time, "wasn't the victim she claimed to be," and the attacker, then 18, "is not your typical sex offender." The judge, a Democrat running unopposed for reelection in the fall, cited medical records that showed the girl's past sexual activity and that...

    The CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi is the most amiable, open-minded guy in the world, with a good sense of humour to boot. The perfect radio host. His weekly show, Q, frequently provides proof of his willingness to explore both sides of a gamut of issues in the classic liberal tradition. Unfortunately, amongst doctrinaire feminists, amiability, intellectual curiosity and even (especially?) a sense of humour don’t cut it when their pet theories fall into Q’s crosshairs. Ghomeshi had the temerity on Monday to host a debate about the veracity of “rape culture,” between Lise Gotell, chair of Women’s and Gender Studies at...
