Are we there yet? The Islamic and Marxist Apocalypse Soon.
Mark Steyn, Jonah Goldberg and Bruce Bawer march on in the post journalistic standards wasteland of the MSM, where empirical harsh truth is a Forbidden Zone. "Brigitte Gabriel...now there was a lovely girl" says Steyn wistfully. Amazingly, this proportionately tiny band of real journalists, bloggers, writers and analysts like them, still manage to get through the toxic desert of Left Marxist Liberal lies, domination and censorship.
"I want fifty rounds of ammunition, enough food for a week and Michelle Malkin's coming with me!" Chuck lays it on the line to Doctor Zaius.
"You may not like what you find, Taylor!" Dr Zaius. The not so good Doctor gives advice to Chuck Heston, investigative astronaut.
"I don't like it already, monkeyboy..." Colonel Neville:
Ok hepcats of the Conservative and Libertarian blogosphere. Dig these perfect little pieces by people worth reading. Not a personality disordered Koskid brat, Huffington Pissed hysteric, NYT or CNN ad nauseum professional bore to be seen. So if you're itchin' for some Hitchens, and need some P.J O'Rourke, I got 'em! Ok, so I'm too exhausted to come up with something worth a damn myself.
Dig this wonderful Free Mark Steyn! insightful and cutting run down, on the dumbness of the MSM old media control freaks, as opposed to the alive, free and empirical fun new media, spearheaded by the online hipsters of the largely Conservative and or Libertarian blogosphere thang etc. You know what I mean.
Here's the cool and stark insight on how most Western feminists are totally prepared to jettison and betray their alleged values for er, Islam! Why? Easy. Islam hates the West, George Bush, the Republicans and Conservatives etc, etcetera. Ipso facto feminists cannot concede a single glaring or positive fact to George and the free West, and must therefore be suicidal bedfellow fellaheens with Islamic totalitarians and terrorists. Go figure.
So it's just bad luck for women like those at stophonourkillings com, eh?
"The Left's Assault on Language by Caroline Glick. Nov. 3, 2008 via the Jerusalem Post.
Extract: "THE LEFT's co-optation of the language of law and democracy is not limited to geopolitics. It extends to issues of cultural politics as well. Take feminism for example. Education Minister Yuli Tamir fancies herself a great champion of women's rights. She has written about feminism and the need for women to have mandated equal representation in both public and private forums.
In all of her work on behalf of women's issues, Tamir has been clear that a society's refusal to mandate full equality for women goes hand in hand with militarism and other violent and anti-liberal tendencies. And yet, in 1996, while a visiting professor at Harvard, Tamir authored an article defending female genital mutilation in the Arab world. In the Islamic world, girls are forced to undergo clitoridectomies to deprive them of sexual pleasure and so "preserve" their "modesty."
Yet Tamir argued in her article, "Hands off Clitoridectomy," published in The Boston Review, it is wrong to oppose the practice because doing so requires a rejection of multiculturalism. As she put it, opponents of the barbaric practice, "intentionally widen the gap between our culture and those in which clitoridectomy is practiced, thus presenting those other cultures as incommensurable with ours. The effect of this distancing is to disconnect criticism of their practices from criticism of our own, and turn reflection on other cultures into yet another occasion for celebrating our special virtues."
Celebrating Western virtues is a no-no for Tamir, because doing so makes us likely to defend those values at the expense of her leftist appeasement agenda. If the West judges Arab societies that mutilate women and girls objectionable, it is likely to judge appeasing them as objectionable and so reject the political message of Tamir and her comrades. And so, as she sees it, it behooves "feminists" like her to defend clitoridectomies, which she did in that article". Continue reading...
"Great moments in J school self-detonation by Mark Steyn. "...was no longer possible to avoid the painful truth that, for a profession that congratulates itself incessantly on its courage, bravery, fearlessness, etc (far more than, say, firefighters do) and hands out awards all year long for "speaking truth to power", most journalists are total pussies happy to suck up to state power as long as it's in PC clothing. Professor Miller, a J-school ethics bore boldly campaigning for the right of government bureaucrats to censor writers, would seem to be an almost parodic example of the phenomenon".
Colonel Neville: Mark Steyn on how the MSM would "rather die than actually write".
Unreadability in the defense of liberalism is no vice.
Ed Driscoll writes: "When the MSM moans about the gallons of red ink it's spilled since 2001, it needs to ask itself if it's prepared to actually report the news, in a fashion that interests readers, or if it exists as a non-profit ideological support system".
Colonel Neville: Excellent Christopher er, Peter Hitchens piece on the Obama Marxist Muslim win. Via Eowyn.
"The night we waved goodbye to America.
The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.
I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts...
...The United States, having for the most part a deeply conservative people, had until now just about stood out against many of the mistakes which have ruined so much of the rest of the world.
Suspicious of welfare addiction, feeble justice and high taxes, totally committed to preserving its own national sovereignty, unabashedly Christian in a world part secular and part Muslim, suspicious of the Great Global Warming panic, it was unique.
These strengths had been fading for some time, mainly due to poorly controlled mass immigration and to the march of political correctness. They had also been weakened by the failure of America’s conservative party – the Republicans – to fight on the cultural and moral fronts." Continue bleeding...
Colonel Neville: Dig Jonah Goldberg on why demanding the government spends someone else's money, known as Left Liberalism, is a bad idea. But demanding a limited government lets you keep as much of your own money as possible, is an empirically good idea. It's a fact that lower taxes result in a greater economy and hey presto!, an overall higher tax revenue.
Jonah Goldberg on "The Soul Of The GOP: ...this isn't to say that one can't be a moderate on this issue or that and be a Republican. But the idea that social liberalism and economic conservatism can coexist easily is not well supported by the evidence. For example, in Congress and in state legislatures, the more pro-life you are, the more likely you are to be a free-market, low-tax conservative. The more pro-choice you are, the more likely it is that you'll be remarkably generous with other people's money.
One objection is that "economic conservatism" and "fiscal conservatism" are different things. One can be socially liberal and fiscally conservative, in the sense that you're only willing to constrain your statist do-goodery to the extent you're able to pay for it.
This is certainly an intellectually defensible position.
But politically, this is hard ground to defend. It turns out that people who buy into the logic of social liberalism usually find themselves ill-equipped ideologically to say no to spending on causes they care about. They even find it difficult to stay Republicans, as we can see from recent example Colin Powell, who endorsed Barack Obama for president for largely ethereal reasons.
It should be noted that it's also difficult to be fiscally conservative and socially conservative if you've jettisoned the conservative dogma of limited government. We saw this in spades as President Bush embraced "activist government" and ended up wildly increasing government spending over the last eight years." Continue digging gold...
Colonel Neville: Here's David Frum on why electing ACORN fraudster, Marxist and Muslim, [via his Father being a Muslim thus he is a Muslim for life] Barry Hussein as a President, is a very, very bad idea.
David Frum at National Post: "True, Ronald Reagan’s party lost votes in its first mid-year election, 1982. But Reagan’s stringent anti-inflation program imposed short-term pain for long-term gain. In Obama’s program, by contrast, the pain is all long-term.
In the short term, he offers a big increase in government spending, cash rebates, and wider health coverage. That’s short-term gain for long-term pain. It seems unlikely that very much of that long-term pain will have arrived by 2010..." Continue frum here...
Colonel Neville: Mark Steyn on how Daniel Craig is a maverick rebel conservative on screen, and off is a bog standard Leftard Liberal actor.
"...as a final question was asked which of the two candidates would make the better 007:
Craig doesn’t hesitate: "Obama would be the better Bond because, if he’s true to his word—he’d be willing to quite literally look the enemy in the eye and go toe-to-toe with them. McCain, because of his long service and experience, would probably be a better M,’ he adds, mentioning Bond’s boss, played by Dame Judi Dench. ‘There is, come to think of it, a kind of Judi Dench quality to McCain."
Oh, great. John McCain has survived plane crashes, just like Roger Moore in Octopussy. He has escaped death in shipboard infernos, just like Sean Connery in Thunderball. He has endured torture day after day, month after month, without end, just like Pierce Brosnan in the title sequence of Die Another Day. He has done everything 007 has done except get lowered into a shark tank and (as far as we know) bed Britt Ekland and Jill St John.
And yet Daniel Craig gives him the desk job.
On the other hand, Barack Obama has spent his entire adult life chit-chatting with “community organizers” and campus lefties – and he’s the last action hero? It’s true he’s offered “to quite literally look the enemy in the eye” without preconditions.
But, given that he looked the Reverend Jeremiah Wright in the eye for 20 years and failed to notice he was an ugly neo-segregationist race-baiter peddling insane conspiracy theories, and that he looked William Ayers in the eye for almost as long and failed to notice he was an unrepentant terrorist, and that he looked Tony Rezko in the eye for an extremely beneficial real estate deal and failed to notice he was already being mentioned in the Chicago papers for various unsavory activities, I’m not sure Senator Obama is the go-to guy for in-the-field intelligence work". Continue laughing and crying...
Colonel Neville: Now dig this. Professor Israel is almost entirely and precisely correct, except when he says that plenty of Muslims are still gonna be just Jim Dandy if they obey the laws, cos hey don't. I lack that confidence. Hey, blame reality cos they won't.
Friday, November 14, 2008 Netherlands: "Fraud At 86% Of Islamic Schools. From NIS News.
THE HAGUE, 14/11/08 - Nearly nine out of 10 Islamic schools in the Netherlands spend government subsidies unlawfully. The education ministry confirmed yesterday following a report in De Telegraaf that 86 percent of the schools make fraudulent use of money.
De Telegraaf obtained a study by State Secretaries Sharon Dijksma and Marja van Bijsterveldt of Education of the 41 primary schools and two secondary schools that provide Islamic education. At half of the schools, the quality of the education is assessed as weak to very weak. At normal schools, this figure is 11 percent".
Colonel Neville: Yep, it's a real bummer that many Muslims reproduce at around three times or more to the local rate, dig their deliberate self-inflicted ghetto scenes, have profoundly treasonous terrorist sympathies and connections, mostly take THEIR "religion" entirely seriously, blatantly lie and decieve and often import large extended families ad nauseum. But don't worry!
Plenty of cheery Muslims on University Campus's across the West, soon invariably agitate, lie and act like the religious totalitarian bastards that many, many naturally are.
Thus Islamists buy and set up phony chairs and departments with Saudi money all to promote Islamist Taquiyaa deceptions, control freakery and their rabid Jew and Christian hatred. I've not been able to find a single Muslim academic and their affiliated groups with their ugly Orwellian misnomers here or anywhere, that ain't pro-Islamist, pro-Palestinian Jew hating anti-Israel shitbag frauds and very close pals of Marxist Leftard shitbag frauds.
Have you? Well, cos they can be nothing else...Where are the er, Muslim good guys hiding? Sure, there's a negative side too.
With jolly old fun loving and laugh a minute Islam, it's all about NUMBERS and PERCENTAGES regards the absolute predictability of Muslim behaviour. Dig the previous link for the horror of the mark of the %.
"Limit Muslim [im]migration, Australia warned. Via The Sydney Morning Herald.
LIFE can become untenable when the Muslim population of a non-Muslim country reaches about 10 per cent, as shown by France, a Jewish expert on Islam says.
The Australian Jewish News yesterday quoted Raphael Israeli as saying Australia should cap Muslim immigration or risk being swamped by Indonesians.
Professor Israeli told the Herald that was a misunderstanding. But he said: "When the Muslim population gets to a critical mass you have problems. That is a general rule, so if it applies everywhere it applies in Australia."
Colonel Neville: Continue reading for the as per usual Islamist Taquiyaa response from chronic mediocrity Keysar Trad and his phony named Islamic Friendship Association of Australia...and all that jazz. And dig the dhimmi bullshit response at the end by one Colin Rubenstein, of the suicidal and largely idiotic AIJAC, [Australian Israeli Jewish Affais COuncil.]
Hey, peruse the startling, disturbing and pathetic details of the Kingdom Of Saud, THE premier primate cage in Gods Monkey House AKA the Middle-East.
Now here's a charming report on how seamlessly a Left Marxist indoctrinated government school system fits with forcing a PC view of Islam onto our children. And dig also, how the US education system is infected with anti-Christianity and blatant pro-Islam Marxism. No, really. Via Blessedview.
Still, it's a larf, innit?
