    Here's some good news for all you black folks complaining about racism in America. You don't know how good you have it. At least that's the message I heard during one of the strangest conversations I've ever had about race. I was talking about the concept of white privilege -- the belief that being white comes with unearned advantages and everyday perks that its recipients are often unaware of. I asked a white retiree if he believed in the existence of white privilege. He said no, but there was another type of privilege he wanted to talk about: "Black privilege."...

Megyn tweeted out this comment by Trump-hater Ben Domenech… “Ben Domenech: If Trump supporters want to come to Cleveland & riot…let them & they will find out what the party of law & order is all about.” So Megyn is now pushing the myth that Trump supporters are violent rioters.

    Islam is the most violent religion in the world. Indeed, Islam has been spread by violence since its inception. What explains this? This is pretty straight forward folks. There are peaceful Muslims, but there is no such thing as peaceful Islam. Violence is not an aberration in Islam—it is DOCTRINE. Dozens of passages in the Quran exhort Muslims to hate or kill or terrorize infidels (non-Muslims) wherever they find them. For examples, see Suras 2:190-193, 2:216, 2:244, 3:56, 3:142, 3:151, 4:24 (rape of captive women); 4:34 (wife beating); 4:56, 4:74 (beheading), 4:76, 4:84, 4:89, 4:91, 4:95, 4:104, 5:32-38, 7:96-99, 8:12-15...

    A polarized Egypt will likely remain enveloped in violence because the Muslim Brotherhood lacks incentive to rejoin the political process, a regional expert said Monday. Almost 300 people have died since Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi deposed President Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood leader, on July 3. Morsis authoritarian rule prompted secular Egyptians and others to back the militarys actions, but supporters of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood argue that the countrys first democratically elected leader should be reinstated. The Muslim Brotherhood has refused to swallow the reality of Morsis exit, despite pleas from international diplomats and an offer by the military...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. More than 250 state prison inmates freed without supervised parole under a new California law were convicted of crimes considered violent or threatening, according to prison records obtained as part of an inquiry by state lawmakers. A handful are sex offenders. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and state corrections officials said the law, passed last year, was designed to improve public safety by concentrating parole supervision on the most dangerous felons. Allowing those convicted of lesser offenses to go unsupervised after their release would mean fewer people being sent back to prison for parole violations, reducing the inmate population...

  • Racist, Violent Attack Against Whites Being Ignored

    In light of my recent posts on rejecting the term reverse racism, and commentary on how some blacks use their race to be jerks, I am saddened to bring you this latest installment. The media frequently will not report a hate crime against whites as a hate crime, and authorities are just as bad. Anyone who remembers the Christian-Newsom Murders will understand what Im talking about. Ohio is the latest such circumstance where a blatant racist group of blacks attacked whites, but they are hesitant to call it a hate crime.

    A group of surfers just got gnarly on a group of paps -- all over photos of beach king Matthew McConaughey! Around 12 photographers were on the beach in Malibu this afternoon trying to get shots of Matty hitting the surf, when an all-out smackdown was laid on the pappers by turf-protecting surfers. One pap was hit in the face and we're told suffered a broken nose, while another was thrown into some rocks and had his camera smashed. McConaughey was not involved in the ruckus. Police tell us a battery report was filed by one photographer and no arrests...

    WASHINGTON - Both violent and property crimes declined in 2007 from the previous year, the FBI reported Monday. In preliminary figures for crimes reported to police, the bureau said the number of violent crimes declined by 1.4 percent from 2006, reversing two years of rising violent crime numbers.

Property crimes were down 2.1 percent last year from the previous year, the largest drop in the last four years. "One preliminary report does not make a trend, but it's going the way we...
