    Gates of Vienna ^ | 22 Jul, 2016 | Fjordman
    On July 22, 2011, 77 people were killed in two bloody attacks in Norway. The terrorist Anders Behring Breivik first set off a car bomb in the government quarter of central Oslo. The bomb killed eight people and did substantial material damage. Breivik then drove out of Oslo with another car. Later that afternoon he arrived via ferry at the island of Utøya, situated some distance outside the municipality of Oslo. Members of the Workers’ Youth League (AUF), the youth organization of the Norwegian Labour Party, used the island for their annual summer camp. In a grotesque shooting spree, Breivik...

    ThinkProgress editor Zack Ford, in discussing the Baton Rouge shooting today, offered a take on police accountability and violence that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way: Given how police haven't been held accountable for murdering black people, it's no surprise some are taking justice into their own hands. — Zack Ford (@ZackFord) July 17, 2016 He argued in his subsequent tweets he’s just making a point about the frustration people feel in reaction to constant systemic injustice:

    That awkward moment when your Back Lives Matter “Day of Rage” turns out to be “30 white goobs in khakis and Birkenstocks.” Friday, July 15, was supposed to be the Black Lives Matter “Day of Rage” in cities across the US. I’ve seen dying fish “flop” less than this. If by “rage” they meant a bunch of white goobs aimlessly meandering around, then mission accomplished! Black Lives Matter held “RAGES” in Texas, Portland, Oakland, and a few other cities. I couldn’t tell if this was a protest or a group of people impatiently waiting for the Denver Whole Foods to...

    On Friday night, BET and MTV convened an hour-long, commercial-free townhall on police-involved shootings of African-Americans with only distant mentions of what transpired the night before in Dallas but focused heavily on denigrating law enforcement as hunters and “a gang” meant to terrorize blacks from America’s founding, the need for white people to recognize privilege, and lobby for the defunding of police nationwide. Aside from a brief discussion with a former New York City detective, the so-called “historic” conversation was anything but in its one-sided, anti-police rhetoric that even went as far as to suggest the media at large weren’t...

    In the days since the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castille and the five police officers in Dallas, there’s been a sense that America is a country divided, in the midst of a budding civil war between black and white. While there are many white people who oppose the Black Lives Matter protests that have sprung up across the nation over the past week, there are also many who have joined the demonstrations against the treatment and killings of black people across the U.S. Below are pictures that offer up a little hope, featuring white protestors standing in solidarity...

    It was the kind of meeting that conspiratorial conservative bloggers dream about. A month after President Barack Obama won reelection, top brass from three dozen of the most powerful groups in liberal politics met at the headquarters of the National Education Association (NEA), a few blocks north of the White House. Brought together by the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Communication Workers of America (CWA), and the NAACP, the meeting was invite-only and off-the-record. Despite all the Democratic wins in November, a sense of outrage filled the room as labor officials, environmentalists, civil rights activists, immigration reformers, and a panoply of other...

    The right according to the great classical liberal Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn, “stands for free, organically grown forms of life.” The right stands for liberty, a free, unprejudiced form of thinking; a readiness to preserve traditional values (provided they are true values); a balanced view of the nature of man, seeing in him neither beast nor angel, insisting on the uniqueness of human beings which cannot be transformed into or treated as mere numbers or ciphers. The left is the advocate of the opposite principles; it is the enemy of diversity and the fanatical promoter of identity. Uniformity is stressed in...

That means big donors will have more sway over elected officials to dictate the agenda.

    Pope Francis is very popular around the world, but there are growing signs that his popularity is dwindling in his own country, Argentina. And there are good reasons for it. When former archbishop of the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires Jorge Bergoglio was chosen pope of the Roman Catholic Church in 2013, there were massive celebrations in Argentina. He was the first Latin American pope, and a respected priest in Argentina, where he was known to be at odds with the corrupt populist government of former President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. Once in the Vatican, Francis’ frequent calls to Argentine...

    It must be pretty sweet to be a white swing voter. Political campaigns blow millions of dollars catering to your every whim. Politicians ask what you think before they step out on a major policy program, despite the fact that your views aren’t representative of the majority of Americans. The changing demographics of this country mean it’s well past time to stop obsessing over a shrinking population that’s out of sync with the right direction for this country. Continuing to cater to those voters can have dire consequences, in politics and more importantly in policies that deeply impact people’s lives....

Despite paying the University for security, student thugs were permitted to seize the stage and disrupt the speech. Cheng was outraged, not that thugs were allowed to drown out views with which they disagreed, but that Yiannopolis was invited "to air his anti-progressive message." "The whole concept of freedom of speech is an antiquated idea derived from dead white men,"...

    In a slap in the face to the family of Kate Steinle, a young woman who last year was killed by an illegal immigrant, San Francisco has decided to retain its status as a sanctuary city. The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved legislation that upholds the city's policy on limiting law enforcement from providing assistance to federal immigration authorities aiming to apprehend or deport individuals. The board's decision allows illegal immigrants like Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez to escape proper punishment. Sanchez, who had been deported five times before, shot and killed Steinle last summer while she was walking along the...

    Radical Islam has shown itself to be a deadly force in recent months, with Muslim jihadists carrying out terrorist attacks in Paris, Brussels and San Bernardino. But despite the apparent danger, the Obama administration recently decided to fast-track the resettlement of refugees from Syria, a hotbed of Islamic violence. Whereas it usually takes 18 to 24 months for the government to process each refugee admission, the administration has now slashed the processing time to three months in an effort to reach its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year. Of the 1,366 Syrians already admitted this fiscal year,...

Students, often with the blessing of faculty, have discovered that names for campus buildings and holidays do not always fit politically correct standards for race, class and sex. Stanford students have demanded the renaming of buildings, malls and streets bearing the name of the recently canonized Junipero Serra, an 18th-century Franciscan priest who was often unkind to American Indians. Harvard Law School is getting rid of its seal because it bears...

    NYU’s pro-Trump students fear for their safety — and grades. They may be flooding caucus rooms across the country, but Donald Trump supporters at NYU keep their heads down, mouths shut and their correspondence secret. Lying in class about their political beliefs and keeping online conversations strictly private are typical precautions taken by The Donald’s badly outnumbered followers on campus. “Supporters generally try to keep it hidden from the rest of the student body,” said junior Dylan Perera, 22. “They’re afraid of losing friends, being ridiculed in class, getting worse grades and are even afraid of being assaulted and physically...

    Superdelegates supporting Hilary Clinton are getting angry, abusive phone calls and emails from Bernie Sanders' backers demanding they switch sides. The pressure is intense, say Clinton superdelgates from states won by Sanders. Superdelegates are not "pledged" to the state victor and can vote whichever way they want. That's leading to a torrent of unpleasantness. . . . "I have friends around the country that are being tormented, not violently, but verbally assaulted and I know Bernie Sanders would not countenance that," Warner said. "I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't make some sort of statement to his supporters to stop...

    Economics are not usually considered part of a culture, but for red-diaper leftists, their attitude to economics is cultural. It is part of the core, sacred narrative. They usually have a child-like view of economics, which they often have inherited from their parents. This is probably why the doubt triggered by their first tax shock is so easily forgotten for leftists. The child-like view is comfortable and familiar. Once amnesia sets in and comfort returns, discussions of economic reality are seen as right-wing propaganda. Leftists hear big numbers and picture Scrooge McDuck’s money bin, not infrastructure, maintenance, specialized equipment, transportation, training,...

    Progressive Brownshirts Leftist protesters are making violence and intimidation a regular feature of the American public discourse. March 15, 2016 Robert Spencer    Ferguson. Baltimore. Chicago. Everywhere Leftist protesters occupy the streets, those whose opinions are deemed insufficiently progressive are abused, mocked, ridiculed, brutalized and physically menaced. This lawlessness is rapidly becoming the norm; the Obama administration, as well as leading media and cultural figures, need to decry that normalization and act strongly against these thugs now – before the American public square is transformed beyond recognition, and ceases to be an arena for free discourse. Although this violence...

    Hammer Blows: The Left, Israel, Obama - An Interview with David Horowitz Some hard truths. March 17, 2016 Niram Ferretti    Reprinted from the Italian news site L'Informale. David Horowitz is not afraid to speak to your face. From his mouth, when he talks about politics, you will never hear something mild because he knows that in our age the tomb of truth is the Newspeak of politically correctness. In the Sixties he was a young Marxist intellectual in London working for Bertrand Russell and becoming a friend of Isaac Deutscher, Trotzky’s biographer and high priest of the British...

    With little fanfare and almost no news media attention, some of the same radical groups involved in shutting down Donald Trump’s Chicago rally last week are plotting a mass civil disobedience movement to begin next month. They intend to march across the East Coast in order to spark a “fire that transforms the political climate in America.” The operation, calling itself Democracy Spring, is threatening “drama in Washington” with the “largest civil disobedience action of the century.” The radicals believe this will result in the arrest of thousands of their own activists. “We will demand that Congress listen to the...
