Attitude Adjusting On Sliding Scale Of Islam

HERE ARE THOSE WHO THINK the tide has turned on the question of militant Islam, moderate Muslims, and the algebra of just getting along. Some believe as a result of Jack Straw's recent admission of concern over Muslim women's use of veils to cover their faces in British society and PM Tony Blair's call for full discussion on the Muslim conflict with modernity has signalled a sea change in mood for free speech traditions long stymied by the political correctness crowd. Calling out for more common sense, these free speech advocates suggest that the rules of the game seem to...

Noting The Rebirth An Ancient Ideology

T SEEMS IT WAS SOMETIME in the mid-1980s, that I first read a rather long article in the Washington Post about this budding ideology called political correctness that had began creeping out of the liberal university system of these very United States, and had now begun to infiltrate the public space, not that it was an American invention, by any means. But it was being hosted by college students. I don't recall any condemnation of the professors who were teaching these 1980s kids, but it the author seemed persuaded that the movement was being driven by grass roots youth. We...


More The Same Of Those Subterranean Homesick Blues

Posted by: GeorgiaBoy61 COULD NOT AGREE MORE with the substance of your column. Over and over again, I have asked myself since the 9-11 attacks, how it could be that virtually everyone in the [civilized] west, including many Americans, feels compelled to use euphemistic language when speaking of Islamic violence. Why is everyone walking on eggshells? The few who dare to voice their honestly-felt opinions about Islam are derided as racists, xenophobes, Islamophobes, etc. The whole phenomenon is still somewhat mystifying to me, but reading Mark Steyn's "America Alone" and other works has helped bring this strange behavior into focus...


The Islamic Slave Trade, Part 5

HE LAST OF THE VIDEO series on the Islamic slave trade and the worldwide conspiracy to keep all its players unpublicized, past and present. In other news, in commentary of the recent Fort Hood massacre by an Islamic jihadist in an American uniform, Hesperando writes on this venerable Veterans's Day: "People are afraid to speak up about Muslims who behave suspiciously." The problem is not merely "CAIR and others". If it were only "CAIR and others" demonizing Islamorealist critics, we would not have this general antipathy throughout the West to condemn Islam and to condemn Muslims who follow Islam. Surely...


Drawing Conclusions On The Wall

LET US ENGAGE IN A SIMPLE thought experiment (an adaptation): A young man erupts in rampage, shooting over 100 rounds into a crowded reception center on a military base, killing over a dozen and wounding many more. Afterwards, it is learned that the shooter was a soldier himself, a fairly high ranking officer in fact. It is also discovered that he has long held Nazi sympathies, and has posted on Neo-Nazi websites. Journalists uncover evidence that he had been distributing Nazi leaflets and copies of "Mein Kampf" on the morning of the attack. When the press finally gets around to...
