It’s time to reconvene the Wannsee Conference to deal with the Muslim problem.
Has Francis issued a call for a candlelight vigil and Kumbaya sing-along?
They must have learned from watching the rewritting of history taking place in New Orleans.
Prayers for these Filipino victims and their families.
I have a hunch this Filipino president is going to show the world the model on how to deal with Islam.
President Rodrigo Duterte is good at getting drug dealers and users killed but has a hard time up against armed mussies.
They are just like our democrats.
