I love being right

Guessed it all by myself!


“It happened outside the Whole Foods in Berkeley…”

Not what you’d expect. (Except for the description of the suspect).

Maybe these California hippies aren’t all bad. Even Volkswagen van-driving lesbians named “Harmony”.

(PS: Related?)


The Who is better than that stupid band you like: George Bush salutes Daltry and Townsend

Don’t bother looking for the musical tribute to The Who on the show; the performers just remind you of The Who’s superiority.


We’re all racists. Lefties just lie about it.

As more and more black renters began moving into this mostly white San Francisco Bay Area suburb a few years ago, neighbors started complaining about loud parties, mean pit bulls, blaring car radios, prostitution, drug dealing and muggings of schoolchildren.

Like many commenters, I’m not sure what’s “racist” about not wanting people like this in your neighborhood. Used to be called “sanity” and “common sense”, especially in a city like San Francisco, which is an expensive place to live.

Tolerance is immaturity. When you grow up and start paying taxes and owning property, you (should) start getting very intolerant about your neighbor’s bad behaviour. If you don’t, you’re just a guilty white beta male who deserves every bad thing he gets.

It’s also a fact that in general, blacks and gays don’t like each other much in California these days. Blacks didn’t vote down Prop 8 because they believe in traditional marriage; if they did, they wouldn’t have so many out of wedlock kids and baby daddies etc. They just don’t like homosexuality.


FLASH: Muslim terrorists attack Jewish store in Denmark

This just in via Brian Of London on Twitter:

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Yossi Levy confirmed Wednesday that an Israeli-owned stand in the Danish city of Odense was attacked by Arab assailants.

According to the ministry’s information, the Israelis were fired upon and two were lightly injured. 

UPDATE: Brian recommends watching “Denmark” in the Twitter stream. (Hit refresh)

IslamInEurope is watching the story.

First “real” news report.

“…we’re talking about a country where ‘Jews are Allah’s enemies’ is a popular protest chant…” (with video)


Magic Negro songwriter says lighten up (wait, is that racist?)

Paul Shanklin speaks:

Is it provocative? Well, most political satire is. What I do for a living is major-league provocative…”

“Apparently, Chairman Duncan doesn’t listen to Rush Limbaugh or conservative Republicans out here in the hinterlands,” Shanklin said as he listed Duncan’s recent accomplishments: “Let’s see, he’s lost the presidency, the House and the Senate. I’m kind of shocked and appalled he’s still there.”

Shanklin credited Saltsman with laying the framework for how far the GOP has come in Tennessee.

Saltsman, he said, “set a tone of leadership that got us” the state House and the state Senate. Under Saltsman as state GOP chairman, Shanklin said the Nashvillian made sure Republicans were running for state House and state Senate seats.

“Chip makes things happen,” Shanklin said.

Based soley on the numbers, the GOP leadership (real and would-be) should be WAY more concerned about turning off anti-p.c. white voters with senses of humor/satire who WERE going to vote for them, than about the p.c. black voters and their fauxcon white enablers without senses of humor/satire, who were never going to vote GOP anyway.

Whether or not the GOP ever takes the White House again is less important than standing up to touchy victocrats and their faux outrage who can’t or won’t appreciate the importance political satire plays in the health of the body politic.

Giving in to the latest “devil’s food cake is racist” “scandal” is NOT the way to fix the culture or the GOP. Just the opposite.


Mohammed Elmasry: what an ignorant pig

Mohammed El Sharpton, dumbf*ck:

Gaza has, in fact, been reduced to a new Auschwitz: the only difference – a nightmarish irony — is that Jews are now playing the role of Hitler’s ruthless SS.

Good news, though:

PS: You may want to ask your MP if Mohammed Elmasry’s new magazine, The Canadian Charger, is getting any kind of government subsidy and then threaten to withhold the portion of your taxes that go toward it.

UPDATED: why Mark Steyn beat El-Mo’s HRC case, Part CXVII…

Er, right. And that would make Hamas the concentration camp guards?


There really are two Americas (and Canadas)

Lefty guy reviews Bill O’Reilly’s book, reveals more about himself and his liberal friends:

If I had lived in New Orleans, I would have gotten in my car and driven the hell out of there as soon as the national weather service gave warning[," writes O'Reilly.]

In case the reader missed the point, Bill says that the dead in New Orleans were “either too dumb, too lazy, too mentally challenged, or too unlucky to have provided themselves with basic protections.”

Stupid and callous as that may sound, it’s the sort of proclamation that helped O’Reilly “succeed in life.” In fact, this sort of non sequitur is the most powerful rhetorical device in O’Reilly’s part of the ideological spectrum.


“Non sequitur”? “Stupid”? Er, no. Isn’t it obvious that O’Reilly “succeeded in life” because he wasn’t the kind of lazy moron who chose to a) live in a crime/drug ridden dump below sea level then b) didn’t abide repeated warnings to leave town and c) blamed their problems on FEMA and George Bush even though millions of other non-stupid/lazy Americans managed to survive other tragedies for 200 years before FEMA (founded in the 1970s) and/or George Bush ever existed?


Predictions for 2009

If you’ve been reading this blog for the last eight years, you know the drill: I make the same predictions every year, figuring they’ll have to “take” some day — Margaret Atwood will win the Nobel Prize, that ELO revival will begin, and plastic surgeons will invent “hand lifts” for aging boomers.

My 2009 death picks are Elizabeth Taylor, Sean Connery, Steve Jobs and Michael Jackson.

Yep, pretty boring.

My only resolution is to start smoking again if I get cancer. So get to work, you lazy, good for nothing cells!


Bizarre: “religion” info on Canadian politicians erased from Wikipedia

Don’t look at me…

A small handful of anonymous internet users have made an editorial decision, leading to the deletion of key information about Canada’s past on one of the world’s most frequented websites. To make matters worse, they have done so based on spurious logic that the religious views of politicians have never been at the centre of Canadian political discourse. Only recently, Paul Martin’s Catholic faith and that of Joe Clark have come up within the context of the gay rights and the same-sex marriage debate. But apparently information on church affiliation has no place in Wikipedia “infoboxes.”

Dutch leftists say whatever the Dutch word for “goodbye” is, to “tolerance”

Your good news story of the day:

It came at the same time Nicolas Sarkozy was making a case in France for greater opportunities for minorities that also contained an admission that the French notion of equality “doesn’t work anymore.”

But there was a difference. If judged on the standard scale of caution in dealing with cultural clashes and Muslims’ obligations to their new homes in Europe, the language of the Dutch position paper and Lilianne Ploumen, Labor’s chairperson, was exceptional.

The paper said: “The mistake we can never repeat is stifling criticism of cultures and religions for reasons of tolerance.”

Government and politicians had too long failed to acknowledge the feelings of “loss and estrangement” felt by Dutch society facing parallel communities that disregard its language, laws and customs.

Newcomers, according to Ploumen, must avoid “self-designated victimization.” (…)

Ploumen insists, “The success of the integration process is hindered by the disproportionate number of non-natives involved in criminality and trouble-making, by men who refuse to shake hands with women, by burqas and separate courses for women on citizenship.


UPDATED: Russia battles Islam within its borders: my latest in FrontPage Magazine

Did you know that some experts claim Russia will be majority Muslim by 2050, or that its army will be majority Muslim by 2015?

I’ve excerpted my new article for FrontPage at my site.

UPDATE: Islam expert Andrew Bostom emails me to say:

Islam began imposing itself (via jihad of course) on parts of Russia (like Dagestan) already by the 7th/8th centuries. Many other waves of jihadism would follow…

He recommends this piece of Sufi Islam he wrote for American Thinker for more information.

Bostom adds that he is not a fan of Murawiec’s hypothesis about the links between Russian revolutionaries, Marxism and Muslim terrorism.


Remembering Samuel Huntington’s other book

Fouad Ajami on Who Are We: The Challenges to America’s National Identity :

He wrote in that book of the “American Creed,” and of its erosion among the elites. Its key elements — the English language, Christianity, religious commitment, English concepts of the rule of law, the responsibility of rulers, and the rights of individuals — he said are derived from the “distinct Anglo-Protestant culture of the founding settlers of America in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.”

Critics who branded the book as a work of undisguised nativism missed an essential point. Huntington observed that his was an “argument for the importance of Anglo-Protestant culture, not for the importance of Anglo-Protestant people.” The success of this great republic, he said, had hitherto depended on the willingness of generations of Americans to honor the creed of the founding settlers and to shed their old affinities. But that willingness was being battered by globalization and multiculturalism, and by new waves of immigrants with no deep attachments to America’s national identity. “The Stars and Stripes were at half-mast,” he wrote in “Who Are We?”, “and other flags flew higher on the flagpole of American identities.”


United 93 disgrace: families of hijacking victims want to hijack another guy’s stuff

Maybe irony did really die on September 11…

Relatives of those who died aboard United Airlines Flight 93 want the Bush administration to seize the land needed for a memorial where the plane crashed in Shanksville, Pa., in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The Families of Flight 93 sent a letter earlier this month asking President George W. Bush to empower the Secretary of the Interior to take the land in dispute from a homeowner who had been in negotiations with the National Parks Service, said Patrick White, vice president of the families’ organization.

“I think the rest of the family members and I feel there is no point at which we will stop,” White said. “Whatever it takes. As long as it takes. Whoever it takes. To do anything less would be doing a disservice to those that we love.”
