  • Mary Jo Kilroy: Socialist Propagandist Caught On Film

    Things have turned negative in OH-15, the battle of Steve Stivers, an Iraq war veteran, against socialist Mary Jo Kilroy, running as a Democrat. Kilroy attacked Stivers for once working as a lobbyist for Bank One. Stivers responded that Kilroy ran a socialist newspaper. The Kilroy campaign shot back, claiming that Kilroy won an award for "excellent journalism" and that Stivers is lying about Kilroy's time at the Free Press, the socialist newspaper Kilroy worked at. But, ladies and gentlemen, I have found something far more damning about Mary Jo Kilroy. snip...

    Each Monday, this column turns a page in history to explore the discoveries, events and people that continue to affect the history being made today. Long before the Internet made viral marketing a cinch, one long-nosed little character named Kilroy made his way around the world the old-fashioned way, becoming a legend among the millions of military men and women who served during World War II. The rudimentary doodle, which featured a balding head peering over a wall along with the tag "Kilroy Was Here," popped up in unexpected places across all of the theaters of war visited by American...

    Me | Today | Dan Pride
    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..
  • Moderate Republican PAC has forged close ties with Schwarzenegger

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger could find a lot of reasons why the Legislature turned away his public works plan, but Paul Folino wasn't one of them. Folino's participation wasn't happenstance. His informal lobbying is just one example of the close and beneficial relationship Schwarzenegger shares with Folino and the rapidly expanding political action committee he helped establish, the New Majority. Members of the centrist group have donated or raised more than $10 million for the Republican governor's political ventures. And the New Majority is pushing to expand its influence. The group, which has about 250 members and funnels roughly $7.5 million...

    The old sergeant platoon was patrolling in an area they had never been before and one of the goon squad was quick to point out that “Kilroy” had already been here. The age old sign of “KILROY WAS HERE” was chalked onto the side of a burned out building.

    Kilroy is still here. James L. Kilroy, that is. The ship inspector credited with creating one of America's most potent military mottos remains dear to the nation's heart. On the job around 1942, he wrote just three words in presumed anonymity on the hull of a Liberty ship: "Kilroy was here."

    Kilroy: 'I will not be 'bought' Robert Kilroy-Silk has said he will not be "bought" after a UK Independence Party donor urged him to drop his leadership ambitions. Alan Bown threatened to pull funds from Mr Kilroy-Silk's election campaign if the MEP continues his leadership bid. Later, the ex-TV host countered: "I am not for sale and never have been." A phone poll of UKIP branch chairmen suggests heavy support for the current leader but Mr Kilroy-Silk said it was a "banana republic" style exercise. The party is canvassing the branch chairmen to ask how they would vote in chairman...

    It's the biggest political correctness flap Britain has seen in years. It has pitted one man against the BBC — Britain's highbrow, purportedly impartial state television network — and unleashed a national fracas over what may or may not be said about the hottest topic of the moment: Islam and the West. Earlier this month, Robert Kilroy-Silk, a one time Labour MP and for 17 years the host of one of British television's most successful daily talk shows, let loose with a few thoughts about the Arab world. In a column for the mass circulation Sunday Express newspaper, under the...

    Last week, I had occasion to mention Trevor Phillips, head honcho at the Commission for Racial Equality and a key player in the demise of Kilroy. Mr Phillips intervened in the Birmingham One's recent troubles to suggest that all would be well if, like glassy-eyed political prisoners paraded on TV in your average ramshackle dictatorship, the ex-presenter agreed to make a full public confession, enter re-education camp and give an unspecified proportion of "his vast earnings" to a Muslim charity. "Then I would say he has been properly contrite," said Mr Phillips, generously. But what's it got to do with...

    Condemned Columnist, Steakhouse Slurs Monday, January 19, 2004 By Scott Norvell A British television commentator who used the phrases "suicide bombers, limb-amputators and women repressors" in reference to Arabs is becoming a cause-celebre for free speech after being suspended from his job at the BBC because of the comments, reports ITV. In a column published Jan. 4 in London’s Sunday Express, Robert Kilroy-Silk also lashed out at Arab extremists who murdered 3,000 civilians on Sept. 11 and "danced in the hot, dusty streets" afterward. The BBC immediately suspended him from his daily BBC-TV chat show following complaints from Muslim groups....

    Now that Kilroy's temporary suspension has become permanent, I was wondering if you would post the column you wrote a few years ago about being fired by the BBC. It might cheer him up.  Diana Wright Bedfordshire I doubt it. But his departure was much more dramatic than mine. Almost exactly six years ago, I was sitting in the BBC studios at Rockefeller Center, just before the start of a weekly talk show I used to host for Radio Four. With the minutes ticking away and the guests arriving, the head of BBC New York was niggling with me over...

    Robert Kilroy-Silk has agreed to quit as presenter of the BBC's morning talkshow after 17 years just a week after the row blew up over his anti-Arab diatribe in the Sunday Express. In a carefully worded statement agreed by both sides, Kilroy-Silk said he believed it was the right time to leave the programme and concentrate on other projects but it is clear that he was given no choice by BBC bosses. After a marathon eight hour meeting with BBC bosses today, the corporation announced that Kilroy-Silk would leave the show but that his TV production company will continue to...

    Kilroy-Silk: opinion turns against BBC John Plunkett Tuesday January 13, 2004 BBC bosses today waded back into the row over Robert Kilroy-Silk after press and public opinion appeared to turn against their decision to pull his daytime talk show. Critics have accused the corporation of restricting freedom of speech after it shelved the show following the presenter's anti-Arab rant in the Sunday Express. Opinion polls have suggested strong viewer support for the beleaguered former MP, while the Daily Express launched a so-called "Express Crusade" demanding "Put Kilroy Back on the Box." But the BBC, in a move that may be...

    London ( - A British Broadcasting Corp. talk show host accused of writing an anti-Arab newspaper column has protested a decision by BBC executives to take his program off the air. Robert Kilroy-Silk, a former Labor Party member of Parliament who hosts a topical morning BBC TV talk show, made the comments in an article published Jan. 4 in the Sunday Express tabloid. In the column headlined, "We owe Arabs nothing," Kilroy-Silk described Arabs as "suicide bombers, limb amputators, woman repressors." He questioned the contribution of the Arab world to civilization, and in an apparent reference to videotaped scenes of...

    The BBC has agreed to reinstate Robert Kilroy-Silk after suspending him for describing Arabs as “suicide bombers, limb amputators and women repressors”. But he has had to agree to new producer guidelines designed to prevent him causing offence to anyone. This column sat in on his comeback show. Kiloy: Good morning, everybody. Welcome to the show. Today we’re talking about freedom of speech. My first guest this morning has had a tragic life. He lost an eye and both hands while on missionary work in Afghanistan and has had to subsist on benefits ever since. Please welcome, from the Finsbury...

    Let me see if I understand the BBC Rules of Engagement correctly: if you're Robert Kilroy-Silk and you make some robust statements about the Arab penchant for suicide bombing, amputations, repression of women and a generally celebratory attitude to September 11 – none of which is factually in dispute – the BBC will yank you off the air and the Commission for Racial Equality will file a complaint to the police which could result in your serving seven years in gaol. Message: this behaviour is unacceptable in multicultural Britain. But, if you're Tom Paulin and you incite murder, in a...
