I’m on the radio tonight, but why listen when you can just read these comments?

(UPDATE: shocked to learn of my secret identity as a Tamil lesbian Marxist, Mark Steyn asks if anyone has ever seen Richard Warman and  I me in the same room. Any response I could give to that would probably be actionable, too… Anyway, I’m reminded of the persistent rumor that Mark Steyn’s assistants “Tiffany” and “Chantal” are really “Just Mark Steyn Using Fake Sounding P*rn Star Name-y Sig Lines in His Emails”. But that’s totally not true. Totally…)


Peter at The Shotgun blog alerts me to a very strange post about me (but hey, what else is new?) re: my “appearance” tonight on Mike & Jay’s Hot Room podcast:

I’m not implying it, I’m saying it straight up: Kathy Shaidle is a leftist gay militant open immigration supporter

Show me a post where Shaidle specifically denounces open immigration, and not just in passing, and I’ll withdraw the accusation. I don’t think she has but I haven’t read all of her posts.

Leftist? Sure, she is an Ignatieff supporter [!?] who supported the Liberals last election [!?!] and seems to hate Conservatives and Harper more than actual declared Liberals.

Gay militant? Definitely. She does criticize gays, I’ll give her that, but check out her posts on bilious harridan Chris Reid; at the end of the day, she’ll align herself with The Grand Anti-Straight White Male Coalition every time [!?!]. I use the term “militant” advisedly, btw, she’s an organizer for the JDL [!?!], probably the most violently anti-free speech organization in Canada.

Has she even mentioned the fact that Tamils have taken over cities in her own country, including her own? No? Why do you suppose that may be?

Ezra Levant has a roundup of free speech news, video

Ezra Levant posts more video from his recent interviews, and much more.

He’s doing fundraisers for the Christian pastor who has been ordered not to talk about homosexuality for the rest of his life, so if you’re in Alberta, be sure to buy tickets!

Australian politician has legs broken to go from 5′ to 5’3″.

Which is like getting breast implants to go from 32B to 36B.


Aw shucks…

Sometimes an addition to the blogroll is long overdue. In this case, I’m adding Kathy Shaidle’s Five Feet of Fury because she’s tough, smart, uncompromising and (“guy” alert! “guy” alert!) damnably cute. But it’s her conservative smarts that make the addition necessary.


Is dementia contagious…?

Mark Steyn writes:

As for Ms Sims’ assertion that “the system worked”, yes, it did: By ensnaring Ezra in years of litigation and running up a six-figure legal tab, it ensured that “the process is the punishment”, regardless of whether you’re eventually vindicated.

In the entire Danish cartoons controversy, Alberta remains the only jurisdiction in the western world in which the state has investigated a citizen for the crime of publishing them. That fact shames Canada, and makes a mockery of its worthless Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

‘There was a time when young Jewish men were given their Labour membership cards at their bar mitzvah parties…’

Damian Thompson writes:

I’m reading Kenan Malik’s book From Fatwa to Jihad, which describes how Left-wing councils turned Pakistani neighbourhoods into “Muslim communities” by throwing money at religious leaders. Multiculturalism “helped paint Bradford Muslim green,” writes Malik. And the same is true, to a lesser extent, of Birmingham and parts of London.

I’m not feeling your gratitude, Jake.  It’s something else.  It’s colder.

Toronto Star columnist Antonia Zerbisias wants someone to shoot Michelle Malkin

Zerb, aka “The Daily Cougar” demonstrates her patented liberal-lefty compassion, tolerance and opposition to violence against women!

Take a look at some of the views coming from Antonia Zerbisias, columnist for the Toronto Star’s Living section. Zerbisias, posted on her Twitter site she wished renown conservative Michelle Malkin were shot.

“Forget the Marxists. I wish the marksmen would take @MichelleMalkin. I’m thinking Dick Cheney. He’s such a great shot,” Zerbisias wrote on the social-networking site Twitter.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin responds:

Zerbisias lives and works in Canada, where they put critics of sharia law on trial  for hate speech.

But you know, this is just good humor.

Zerbisias lamely tried to cover her backside by arguing that she meant that she wished that I didn’t get hit because Cheney is a bad shot.

See, “I wish the marksmen would take @MichelleMalkin” really means the opposite of what she wrote!

Yeah. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot there, Antonia Z. The point is that Cheney hit a person instead of the quail. And that’s exactly what you meant.

Note: Zerb’s Twitter profile pic isn’t of her. It’s a head shot of old time movie star Verna Lisi. And really: can you blame her? Some old boyfriend probably told her she looked like that about 30 years ago, and she’s been clinging to it ever since.

No husband. No kids. A closet full of shoes. Martinis with the girls, then goes home alone. You know the type. Sad, really…

UPDATE: click for Kate’s funny illustration!

Kate adds:

Ignoring Zerb is like ignoring Helen Thomas. Someday she’ll be dead and you’ll regret having missed out.

Harsanyi: Free speech or just annoying?

David Harsanyi writes:

In the “choose life” case, Illinois claims that a license plate conveys government, rather than private, speech. If that is so, what should we do about the other 19 states that do allow “choose life” — which is clearly a political statement?

Nationally, specialty license plates generate tens of millions of dollars, so we will never see an end to them. Yet, do license plates really need to convey anything more than a government ID number?


Islamonausea story of the day

Mark Steyn writes:

On Holocaust Memorial Day 2008, a group of just under 100 people—Londoners and a few visitors —took a guided tour of the old Jewish East End. They visited, among other sites of interest, the birthplace of my old chum Lionel Bart, the author of Oliver! Three generations of schoolchildren have grown up singing Bart’s lyric: Consider yourself At ’ome! Consider yourself One of the family! Those few dozen London Jews considered themselves at ’ome. But they weren’t. Not any more. The tour was abruptly terminated when the group was pelted with stones, thrown by “youths”—or to be slightly less evasive, in the current euphemism of Fleet Street, “Asian” youths. “If you go any further, you’ll die,” they shouted, in between the flying rubble.

Hey, that sounds so… familiar…

PS: I’m old enough to remember when “South Asians” were “East Indians.” Isn’t the Left incredible? No wonder they think they can fix the climate — they’ve already altered the points of the compass!
