The Veil, The Mask of Islamic Supremacy, Folly, and Failure

he polarized debate over full-face veils in Great Britain is turning ugly. "This could be the trigger for the grim spiral that produced riots in the north of England five years ago," says Trevor Phillips, head of the Commission For Racial Equality in the UK. Jack Straw, Leader of the House of Commons, recently sparked a media debate by saying he preferred women not to wear full-face veils at meetings in his constituency because he believed they made communication difficult. After years of western leaders bending to Muslim demands, British leaders are daring to suggest theat the polarised situation over...

Camille Paglia Weighs In On Palin

ere, straight from the old gal's keyboard is an endorsement you can believe in... I've always had a special place on my intellectual shelf for Camille Paglia, ever since she broke ranks with the man-hating feminists of her era, initiating what came to be known as second wave feminism. I immediately latched on sometime in the early 1980s right after discovering teh art of Judy Chicago while the few punk rocks kids coming out of college I was meeting in DC were still mouthing the ever photogenic and portable Gloria Steinem.

The Theatre Of Political Desire

The following is a comment from a PUMA named Janis. The topic is Obama's 2004 speech.

From Investor's Business Daily is this rather frightening notion of Far Leftist radicalism (American style) organized straight from the White House: he Democrats' reintroduction of militant Michelle Obama in Denver was supposed to show her softer side.

Barack Obama was a founding member of the board of Public Allies in 1992, resigning before his wife became executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies...


By Their Fruits Ye Shall Know Them

HOT AT THE DNC in Denver this week. It looked like these 9/11 Conspiracy wolves were ready to tear Michelle Malkin from limb to limb. This whole episode reminded me of the 1960s civil rights confrontations, and as I sense it we will see more of this behavior writ large. You know, wolves will be wolves, and bullies will be bullies, no matter what the conflict... I mean, what do people like this lead bully expect to accomplish? That Malkin would suddenly be addressed by a shaft of light, fall to her knees, tearfully repent of whatever opinions she may...
