  • Muslim leaders play victim in Oklahoma beheading

    Colleen Hufford of Moore Oklahoma may be missing her head, but the real victims are Muslims, or so we are being asked to believe. In fact, according to the Imam of the Islamic Institute of Boston, Islam suffers a “double hurt.” And here I thought Ms. Hufford had it bad. The imam should know, after all, it was his Institute’s “resident scholar” who was reportedly the former imam of the Oklahoma mosque attended by Alton Alexander Nolen, aka Jah’Keem Yisrael, who wielded the knife separating Ms. H’s head from her body. And the leadership of that Oklahoma mosque agree that...

    The perpetual siren call of victimhood. Oh, how alluring, how comforting, how most pleasing is the mantle of victimhood. So pleasing, in fact, that even when the claim to victim status is tenuous at best, some people cannot restrain themselves from rushing before the news cameras to inform the world of how they have been mistreated. Pátio ergo sum. I suffer, therefore I am. Witness the case of Keith Jones, a firefighter in Oakland, Calif., who recently had a brief but mildly tense encounter with an officer from that city’s police department. Jones, 43, was leaving an Oakland Raiders football...

    The Harvard Law professor who mentored President Obama and the first lady during their time in Cambridge has compared the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown to the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Speaking with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, Charles Ogletree also compared the police shooting of 18-year-old Brown to the 1955 killing of Emmett Till. “Looking at what’s happened, this is just like the assassination of Dr. King in 1968, when everybody was very upset trying to figure out what was going to happen,” he said. “It’s like the killing of Trayvon Martin two years ago. “This is...

    The world of feminism is a strange one. Some of us might see the cause as lost and irrelevant, while others might see it as an essential part of equality. There may have been a time when feminism served its purpose in North America, but it's difficult to justify its need today, especially since most of the archaic laws that barred women from doing basic things have been abolished. Since women won the right to vote and become CEOs, modern feminism seems to have deteriorated into mindless sophistry. From advocating for free contraception to complaining about "cat calling" and exaggerating...

    The occupy movement is circling back on itself with the announcement of the final prosecution of protester Cecily McMillian. Sentenced to three months for elbowing a police officer, those within and without the movement are wondering where they go from here and what it all means. The founders of the movement have moved from cities into the country, and are organizing to occupy the polls to rout out corruption. However, there are questions within the confines of the Electoral College as to how much change this focus can produce. One element of the occupy movement from its headquarters in Zuccotti...

Taj Patterson, 22, was walking home from a party through the predominantly ultra-Orthodox section of South Williamsburg when he says a group of at least twenty Jewish men attacked him. Patterson says that during the beating, the men yelled anti-gay slurs, including, "Stay down, f----t!” "I’m walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, I’m surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and they’re attacking me,” Patterson tells the Daily...

It showed him going to work — unlike the record number of people living on government payments for “disabilities” that are far less serious, if not fictitious. How is this young man getting to work? He gets into his car and drives there — using controls set up so that he can operate the car with his feet. What kind of work does he do, and how does he do it? He is involved in the...

    Yeah, he caught and corrected himself. Too late. When the chips were downn, instead of stepping up and truly taking responsibility for the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, instead of acting like a leader and the President of the United States, Barack Obama's first impulse was to cast himself as the victim. In an interview with Chuck Todd aired on this evening's NBC Nightly News, President Obama said that "I've been burned by a website." View the video here.

    These days, being seen as a victim can be useful. You immediately claim the moral high ground. Some people want to help you. Lawyers and politicians brag that they force others to help you. This turns some people into whiners with little sense of responsibility. Joe Biden's niece was arrested recently for throwing a punch at a cop. The New York Post says she's addicted to alcohol and pills, but rather than take responsibility for her actions, she blamed them on the "pressure she faces" because her uncle is vice president. Give me a break. America was founded by people...

The details of the audit indicated repeated and growing privacy violations by the NSA, violations which included obtaining thousands of American citizen´s communications records and using methods of information collection that were later deemed unconstitutional by a court. The Post was able to interview John Delong, NSA director of compliance for the article and they were initially

    I know that I am not the only American who now thinks that July 4 should be observed as a national day of mourning, rather than celebrated as a day of independence and liberty. For most Americans, July 4 is nothing more than National Beer, Hot Dogs, Concerts, Parties and Fireworks Day. The very name of this "holiday" -- INDEPENDENCE DAY -- is made mockery every day by our government's embrace of the "New World Order" and its drive towards ultimate subordination of our national sovereignty to a global government.

It explains how a Neanderthal hate-group like the New Black Panther Party can arise. It also explains why they embrace the Obamas and scorn Justice Thomas and Rep. Allen West.

    Watching the left occupied news channels can be confusing. Why do some stories like the Trayvon/Brawley/Duke La Crosse hoaxes get so much coverage while horrid black on white crimes are covered up? To understand why these crimes are reported differently, one needs to have an understanding of the left’s hierarchy of victimhood. The hierarchy assigns greater worth to certain individuals based on their race, gender, religion, sexuality and political beliefs. A concurrent hierarchy — the hierarchy of oppressors — assigns levels of unworth based on the same criteria.

Martin was shot to death by George Zimmerman on Feb. 26 in a gated community in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman says he shot Martin, who was unarmed, in self-defense. Zimmerman is under arrest. Henson, who has a 17-year-old son herself, said she spoke to Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, over the weekend by phone. "I cannot think about the mother, Sybrina, and what she could be going through," Henson said Monday on "CBS This Morning." "(Trayvon) should be doing exactly what my son is doing right now,...

    Killer becomes a 'victim' Op-ed: False notion of 'Muslim victimhood' raises its head in wake of Toulouse murders Politically correct European elites and many Muslims have jointly created the perception that all Muslims are victims of the West. Consistent flawed reasoning and false arguments have made this possible. On the basis of the fake "victimhood" platforms created over the years, whitewashers of Toulouse murderer Mohamed Merah are constructing new false images. It is difficult to deny that the three French soldiers, a Jewish teacher and three children whom he killed are victims. Once having paid tribute to them, whitewashers began...

    Several well-known researchers recently made unexpected arguments on pedophilia at an academic conference in Baltimore. Liberty Counsel Action's Matt Barber attended the conference and says he felt he was on a different planet, as the presenting professionals aimed to remove pedophilia from the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). That would mean that pedophilia would no longer be considered a mental disorder. "The entire focus of the event was on the victimhood of the pedophile," Barber accounts. There was "very little concern for the children who are the victims of these individuals when they...

    There is nothing harder than trying to explain the appeal of Sarah Palin to those who just don’t get it. The governor is launching a bus tour of historic parts of America that commentators say is a promo for a presidential campaign. First stop: the annual Rolling Thunder motorbike ride in Washington DC. To some, the thought of a presidential candidate burning rubber with “scooter trash” is incredibly cool. To others, it is tacky and inappropriate. The response is conditioned by different cultural values. That’s why the Palin mystique is so indefinable and controversial. Voting for her isn’t a rational...

We’ll have full coverage tomorrow but for now, the governor sent this message to all of the people who stood up on Twitter today, in defense of the special needs community and basic human decency:
  • Papa John's, Huggies Pull Ads From Wonkette After Palin Post-Boycott After 'Tribute' Mocks Trig

    Know what doesn't go over well with advertisers? Making fun of disabled children. On April 18, political blog Wonkette published a post titled "Greatest Living American: A Children's Treasury of Trig Crap On His Birthday" (none of which we will quote here). Trig, for those who don't remember, is Sarah Palin's youngest son, who has Down Syndrome. The initial response to this "celebration" of Trig's birthday was limited to comments getting in on the action, contributing the sort of jokes that would make Gilbert Gottfried proud. But then, according to Slate's David Weigel, conservative bloggers stumbled across it and the...
  • It's like Clockwork when it comes to Gov. Palin.

    Clockwork is a set programmed job. It requires you to know the gears, the springs and how it all goes together. It is a demanding job, requiring skill and a certain affinity for the job to be able to do it well. It is also a good analogy to the MSM/RNC/DNC attempts to STOP PALIN. If you notice, after every “homerun"/"good news cycle" of Gov Palin's, the clock workers in the MSM/RNC/DNC bend to their tasks of STOPPING PALIN. It doesn’t matter what type of homerun Palin accomplished. It could be a speech like last Saturday’s or a great interview...
  • Game Over – Kloppenburg Loses to Prosser (and Truman)(and Palin)[Threats against Sarah]

    The results have just been posted in the Milwaukee County canvass, and nothing much changed from yesterday. AP reports Prosser picked up 11 more votes and is the winner. I repeat, JoAnne Kloppenburg lost. David Prosser won. The vote margin stands at 7316, a virtually insurmountable lead for a recount. All the hanging chads in the world will not put Kloppenburg on the Supreme Court. So I will make a plea taken from a concern troll who posted a comment here when it looked like Kloppenburg would win by 200 votes: Prosser Kloppenburg is in a really tough spot here....
  • Palin Heads to Wisconsin Tea Party Rally, Left Already ‘Joking’ About Violence

    Before we get started, here’s a quick and important rundown of the hopelessly biased, corrupt-to-the-core media world in which we presently live…A few dopes, most of them likely Leftist plants and Larouchers, show up at Tea Party rallies with a few dumb signs and it’s a national news story for months. No one from the Tea Party yells the N-word at a Capitol Hill ObamaCare protest and yet there’s a week-long media storm saying someone did — and nary a peep once it’s proved they didn’t. Someone commits a heinous mass murder in Tucson and the entire MSM Complex spends days blaming Sarah Palin because...
  • Sniff: On Atheism's Pretend Victims

    Weekend Libertarian ^ | 5 April, 2011 | B.P. Terpstra
    It’s no magical coincidence either that atheist Christopher Hitchens moved to the United States – or that sulking secularists tend to immigrate to Christian-majority nations, as opposed to godless states. I call this taking advantage. On some level, the pretend victim knows that he or she has a highly developed faith, and is often drawn to explicit, more evolved and open faith islands, to preach his or her “good news” narratives (from discredited Darwin-inspired eugenics to absurd manmade global-warming predictions). To disagree too is sheer blasphemy. Wounded by the supposed ignorance of others, many atheists see themselves and/or their fellow...

    Seems like old times. The great columnist Andrew Bolt made some mildly pointed observations about prominent and strikingly pasty-faced Australians choosing to identify as “aborigines”, and found himself hauled into court by the thought police:
  • MEGHAN MCCAIN: My Family & Sarah Palin To Be Nothing Short Of Crucified By HBO's 'GAME CHANGE'

    Business Insider ^ | April 1, 2011 | Meghan McCain
    MEGHAN MCCAIN: I Expect My Family And Sarah Palin To Be Nothing Short Of Crucified By HBO's 'GAME CHANGE' HBO is adapting a miniseries based on Game Change, the book about the 2008 election. But as Hollywood casts liberal actors to play all the parts, Meghan McCain doubts that it will be an accurate portrayal of what actually happened. Game Change, the infamous bestseller written by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, has plagued anyone directly associated with the 2008 election cycle. The first time I heard about the book was within weeks after Obama was elected—my former press person...
  • Maher, Lopez and the War on Women--Why Are Attacks on Conservative Women Given Just a Shrug?

    Fox News ^ | March 25, 2011 | Penny Young Nance
    It takes a really weak, insecure, and spineless man to attack a woman on television. It takes an even weaker “feminist” movement to play down such attacks. In a recent episode of “Somebody, Please Notice Me,” also known as “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO, the show’s host may have hit rock bottom with his latest rhetorical bomb by referring to Sarah Palin with a vulgarity exceedingly offensive to women. Far more noticeable, and certainly more noteworthy, was the backhanded “defense”of Palin from radical feminists and their clearly misnamed organizations. National Organization for Women communications director Lisa Bennett, after...

    Sarah Palin’s trip to India and Israel is a great opportunity for her to boost her foreign policy credentials, solidify future potential alliances, learn more about the issues by engaging directly with the movers and the shakers and develop relationships which will be important to her should she become president. But, it’s also an opportunity for those who are enemies of America to size up a potential opponent; and if you are a Muslim extremist bent on establishing Sharia law worldwide, Sarah Palin represents a serious threat...... .....This may at first seem like not a big deal, but it’s crucial...
