U.N. Elects Iran to Women’s Rights Commission

The United Nations beclowns itself once again.

Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged “immodest.”

Just days after Iran abandoned a high-profile bid for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council, it began a covert campaign to claim a seat on the Commission on the Status of Women, which is “dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women,” according to its website.

Iran’s election comes just a week after one of its senior clerics declared that women who wear revealing clothing are to blame for earthquakes, a statement that created an international uproar — but little affected their bid to become an international arbiter of women’s rights.

“Iran’s discriminatory laws demonstrate that the Islamic Republic does not believe in gender equality,” reads the letter, signed by 214 activists and endorsed by over a dozen human rights bodies.

The letter draws a dark picture of the status of women in Iran: “women lack the ability to choose their husbands, have no independent right to education after marriage, no right to divorce, no right to child custody, have no protection from violent treatment in public spaces, are restricted by quotas for women’s admission at universities, and are arrested, beaten, and imprisoned for peacefully seeking change of such laws.”

Yet critics of Iran’s human rights record say the country has taken “every conceivable step” to deter women’s equality.  “In the past year, it has arrested and jailed mothers of peaceful civil rights protesters,” wrote three prominent democracy and human rights activists in an op-ed published online Tuesday by Foreign Policy Magazine.

“It has charged women who were seeking equality in the social sphere — as wives, daughters and mothers — with threatening national security, subjecting many to hours of harrowing interrogation. Its prison guards have beaten, tortured, sexually assaulted and raped female and male civil rights protesters.”

Iran’s elevation to the commission comes as a black eye just days after the U.S. helped lead a successful effort to keep Iran off the Human Rights Council, which is already dominated by nations that are judged by human rights advocates as chronic violators of essential freedoms. The current membership of the women’s commission is little different.

[...]

Mind you, this is the same Iran that has declared that women with a sun tan will be arrested.

Arizona Bans Chicano “Ethnic Studies”

Has the conservative counteroffensive really begun?  Arizona is taking their fight to save their state all the way to the halls of Academia.

Arizona legislature bans ethnic-studies programs

Just a week after signing the country’s toughest immigration bill into law, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer now must decide whether to endorse another bill passed by her state legislature — one that outlaws ethnic-studies programs in public schools.  The bill forbids Arizona schools from using any curriculum that promotes “the overthrow of the United States government” or “resentment toward a race or class of people.” It also disallows any curriculum that’s “designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group” or that seeks to “advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals.”

Arizona’s superintendent for public instruction, Tom Horne, has said he’s backing the measure because ethnic-studies programs encourage “ethnic chauvinism”; he’s also suggested that such programs could breed secessionist sentiment among Hispanic students.

Republican state Sen. Jack Harper also voted for the bill, saying that certain Hispanic-themed ethnic-studies programs are “trying to say that somebody who came to this country illegally is somehow oppressed. That’s crazy stuff.”

[...]

BRAVO.

Arizona is storming the culture-destroying citadel of Academia.  These “ethnic studies” programs are little more than cover for racial/ethnic separatism promoted for decades by angry, radical–and yes, thoroughly ANTI-AMERICAN– Chicano intellectuals who believe the American southwest is a conquered territory called “Aztlan” that must be returned to its rightful owner, Mexico.  They are the Louis Farrakhans of the hispanic community, and academia happily shelters them.  Simply put, Chicano “ethnic studies” is a cultural Trojan Horse whose ultimate goal is the “reconquista” of the Southwest through the inevitability of racial and cultural demographics.  But don’t take my word for it, take theirs:

There are two ways that you can gain territory from another group. One is by conquest. That’s essentially the way we took California from Mexico and… Texas as well. But what’s going on now may end up being a kind of recolonization of the Southwest, because the other way you can regain territory is by population infiltration and demographic dominance …. The United States will be faced with the problem that Canada has been faced with… and which our system is not prepared to accomodate.

And this:

Mario Barrera, a faculty member of U.C. Berkeley’s Department of Ethnic Studies, admitted that multiculturalism “would help prepare the ideological climate for an eventual campaign for ethnic regional autonomy.”31 In January 1995, El Plan de Aztlan Conference at UC Riverside resolved that “We shall overcome…by the vote if possible and violence if necessary.”32 The rise of Mexican irredentism as a serious political movement “awaits only the demographic transformation of the Southwest.”

[...]

Arizona knows EXACTLY what they’re up against.  And this:

According to legend, Aztlan was the ancestral homeland of the Aztecs which they left in journeying southward to found Tenochtitlan, the center of their new civilization, which is today’s Mexico City. Today, the “Nation of Aztlan” refers to the American southwestern states of California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, portions of Nevada, Utah, Colorado, which Chicano nationalists claim were stolen by the United States and must be reconquered (Reconquista) and reclaimed for Mexico.5 The myth of Aztlan was revived by Chicano political activists in the 1960s as a central symbol of Chicano nationalist ideology. In 1969, at the Chicano National Liberation Youth Conference in Denver, Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales put forth a political document entitled El Plan de Aztlan (Spiritual Plan of Aztlan).6 The Plan is a clarion call to Mexican-Americans to form a separate Chicano nation.

[...]

Three cheers for Arizona.

The American southwest has put up with this crap for DECADES, and they’re fed up with it.  Arizona knows EXACTLY who these seditious bastards are and what they’re up to, even if the rest of America criticizes them from afar in their UTTER ignorance of what’s happening in our Southwestern states.  America is a multiracial country, and that’s fine.  But that should not be used as cover for the radical multiculturalism promoted by seditious Chicano activistas whose ultimate goal is the destruction of the Union.

Bernie Goldberg on the Media, Immigration Firestorm

Bernie Goldberg, who worked inside the Lib Media for over 20 years, shows us how the Perception Shapers are creating the immigration narrative.  It’s a text book case.

Immigration: Liberals Imposing A Leftwing Theocracy

Don’t Liberals believe in separation of church and state?  Then why are they trying to impose a theocracy on us?  Here a Liberal Episcopalian priest invokes the Bible in support of illegal immigration, open borders, and social/structural justice.

To God, no person is ‘illegal’

In western New York, one pastor recently told his congregation: “Don’t open your door to anyone – it is too dangerous.”  But it is not just immigrants who are afraid; fear pervades American society. Post 9-11, fear has dominated the immigration discussion and left many of us feeling paralyzed, pessimistic and angry.

Across our country, tension is again rising as some Americans, many of them former newcomers – immigrants themselves – see themselves in conflict with the newest immigrants. Fear appears to overcome hope, and the words of Psalm 137:4 come to mind: “How can we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?”

Most often when people approach me to discuss immigration, they want to begin with economics rather than God’s humanity: “Can we afford the costs of treating farm workers equally? Can we afford to give them safe and sanitary conditions?” People want to speak of legalisms instead of God’s commandments: “Well, they are here illegally, so they don’t deserve to be treated with respect.”

In God’s eyes, there is no documented or undocumented, there is no legal or illegal, there are only his children. For evidence, look to the Torah, which mentions the importance of welcoming the foreigner in our midst more than 15 times.

Our inability to welcome the foreigner is creating division among us as brothers and sisters – among God’s children. As a result, people are hopeless, and there is injustice in our land – injustice that in our fear and ignorance we allow to happen.

I believe that God calls us to love all in the face of the fear and the injustice. We are people of faith, and we are called to sing the Lord’s song, and it is a song of hope. I am mindful of this call as our government engages in the debate on the future of immigration reform, which will affect an estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants.

[...]

Stop imposing your morality on me, dude.  A bit of a rant from CCHQ here.

Liberals keep telling us America is not a Christian nation, they repeat ad nauseaum “Separation of Church and State”, and warn repeatedly of the American Taliban’s attempt to impose “theocracy” on America.  It seems to me their aversion to “theocracy” is as selective as their support for “free speech.”  Invoking the Bible in the public sphere, it appears, is only a problem when someone on the Right does it.  Quoting Bible verses in favor of Lib politics, well that’s just fine.  Which, by the way, they do ALL THE TIME.  Dem politicians are allowed to invoke scripture with impunity, while Republicans have been cowed into near silence for fear of that dreaded “theocracy” tag.  Hmmm.  Perhaps everybody is ok when a Lefty invokes the Bible because nobody really thinks they believe in it anyway.

But let’s go ahead and mix a little bit of church and state with him, shall we?  If treating illegal immigrants with “respect” is what he’s worried about, I think he should first lead by example.  I challenge him to treat his fellow American conservatives with the same respect he wants us to treat perfect strangers and members of that revered class of people Libs call “the other.”  Because if Libs can’t even treat their own fellow Americans– their NEIGHBORS– like human beings, then it would seem an impossible task for hate mongers like ourselves to treat perfect strangers any better.

He accuses us of “fear”.  Well, maybe some people are afraid, I’ll be honest.  But God gave us fear for a reason.  Therefore, it’s this Lib’s job– not to accuse us of fear– but to convince us our fear is unjustified.  And so far, the facts are not on his side.  Illegal immigration has been a social scourge in Arizona and other parts of the Southwest, straining our law enforcement, sucking our educational and medical systems dry, and costing us billions a year.  Liberal guilt trips aren’t going to change that, they’re just going to make it worse.  When the Lib tells you not to hate and fear, he means don’t hate and fear one of his protected groups.  Meanwhile, groups not under the Lib flag of protection are fair game.  Bible thumpers, Southerners, Walmart shoppers, etc., you get the gist.  The Lib, therefore, is the only arbiter of who we may safely fear or hate.  He decides who is fair game, and who is not.  That’s why your disdain for Islam makes you a hater, but his loathing of Christianity makes him, well, loving!  Because they’re the arbiters!

Thus, for example, the Lib pietist pats himself on the back for condemning your fear of immigrants, but treats his Bible-thumping neighbors lower than a terrorist.  You see, it’s the Lib pietist who gets to choose who we’re allowed to fear and demonize as a society, not you.  Filthy prole that you are, you are simply to fall in line and play by their rules, or be tagged a hater.  That doesn’t seem fair, now does it?  So here’s my challenge to them– how about they treat their conservative NEIGHBORS the way they want us to treat perfect strangers pouring across the border, and then preach to me your gospel of loving Liberalism.   Show your redneck christianist neighbor some of that Liberal love before you accuse others of inhumanity towards immigrant strangers.  In other words, you first, Lib.  That would be a good way to begin the conversation, don’t you agree?

Personally, I’m fine with immigrants.  It’s mass illegal immigration that’s the problem.   I am hispanic, and I have at least two Latino immigrants in my immediate family, whom I both cherish.  I grew up in Latin America and don’t really consider Mexican immigrants “the other”, the way all those faux cosmopolitan white Liberals do.  That’s a term THEY use for brown people, not me (a Liberal self-reveal, as far as I’m concerned).  And fear them?  Nope.  I used to work with them, and now I teach their kids.  I’ll tell you who I really fear though– white Liberals who hate me more than they do terrorists because 1) I’m a conservative, and 2) I’m a conservative who also happens to be an ethnic minority.   It’s breathtaking to be on the receiving end of that kind of hatred and loathing.  I can assure you, any “hatred” and “fear” that conservatives might have for immigrants pales in comparison.  We reserve that fear and loathing for Al-Qaida, not foolish do-gooders or desperate immigrants.

So, fear of Latino immigrants?  Not so much.  Indeed, unlike Europe’s demographic invasion, at least our immigrants are judeo-christian and Western.  As far as I’m concerned they’re less of a threat to America and the West than is your average culture-destroying San Francisco Sec Prog.  All things being equal, I’d toss the Sec Prog out, not the immigrant.  We are ok with immigration per se when the immigrant is from traditional, christian, and Western countries like Mexico.  But that doesn’t mean we’re pro-illegal immigration, because we are not for open borders and anarchy.

We are pro-LAW and ORDER and pro-democracy.  Which is why we believe the voters of Arizona have spoken, and it’s time for white Liberals and Latino activistas to get over it already.  You know, the way Rightwingers are supposed to get over healthcare reform and move on?  Yeah, like that– GET OVER IT and move on, Libs.  Arizona has spoken.

But without putting too fine a point on it, although we’re ok with immigrants from Mexico for the reasons already stated, we’re also PRO-ASSIMILATION.  Because although we do not fear LEGAL immigration, we do fear MULTICULTURALISM.  Multiculturalism is a civilization killer.

Thus, we should strive for an immigration policy that promotes the immigrant’s assimilation into the mainstream of America, not their marginalization as they balkanize themselves into self-pertuating ghettos.  Immigrants this close to Mexico, and surrounded by their fellow countrymen, aren’t compelled to learn English as were immigrants of years past who were completely cut off from their mother country.  When immigrants arrived on American shores from Europe, they were cut off forever.  This forced them to learn the language and assimilate– to make America their home.  If the economy tanked, they didn’t go back to old country because it was too far away.  So they were here to stay.  That’s why so many of them Americanized their names.  They wanted to be Americans from Day One.  Is a Mexican mass transfer of population across the border conducive to that kind of assimilation?  Well, let’s just say it makes it a hell of a lot more unlikely because illegal aliens from Mexico are too close to home to cut the links to the old country.  And now we have multiculturalism, not a melting pot.  Sadly, this is precisely what Libs want because this allows them to create a new victim class, who can then be made dependents on the state, with the Dems protecting them against the evil Rightwingers who would wean them from the free goodies.  This assures Dems the immigrant vote in perpetuity because why would anybody vote for a party that would seek to deprive them of the mother’s milk?  This is what really motivates Liberal immigration policy, not compassion, and we would be insane to give it to them.  Rant over.

Illegals Threaten To Murder Americans With Axes and Shovels

Lefties hope through sheer repetition that you will believe the Tea Party called black congressmen the “n” word and spat upon them (as if one or two bozos among thousands of people defines the group as a whole).  They claim it’s “on the tape”, while the Lib Media actively colludes with them in this racial fraud.  But there is no tape, and the black congressmen have backed away from their claims.  Well, unlike the manufactured instances of “hate” and “violence” by the Tea Party, WE’VE GOT THE TAPE:

Where’s McClatchy now?  Where’s the rest of the MSM running breathlessly to make this the pro-Illegals narrative?  lol.  Nowhere.

IMMIGRATION – THE EMERGING LIB MEDIA NARRATIVE

This comes as no surprise whatsoever.  They’re as predictable as the day is long.  On just about any issue, watch for the Lib Media’s narrative.  Then believe the exact opposite.  I’ve found that to be a sound position in about 98.7% of the cases.

ABC and NBC Champion ‘Growing National Backlash’ Against ‘Laughing Stock’ Arizona

Extending the kind of respect they never provided the Tea Party activists, ABC and NBC on Tuesday night promoted what NBC anchor Brian Williams embraced as “the growing national backlash against the state of Arizona over its tough new immigration law that says police can stop people just on the suspicion they might be there illegally.” ABC’s Barbara Pinto touted how “the call for an economic boycott here has caught fire on the Internet” while NBC’s Andrea Mitchell trumpeted how “anger over the law has gone viral,” as both pointed to how the American Immigration Lawyers Association had canceled a conference – of a mere 400 attendees – scheduled for the state. NBC’s Mitchell played clips from two left-wing comedians, as she asserted: “It’s now gone beyond protest to threats of a boycott, as Arizona becomes a laughing stock to some.” Viewers then heard a joke from Saturday Night Live about “fascism” followed by The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart: “It’s not unprecedented, having to carry around your papers. It’s the same thing free black people had to do in 1863.” After showcasing a Facebook page (“ Arizona , the Grand Canyon State , welcomes you unless you’re a Mexican or look like one”), Mitchell cited “a slap in the face” from Mexico which, ironically, warned its citizens about traveling to Arizona .

Times Reporter Turned Columnist Greenhouse on Arizona’s ‘Police State,’ Makes Nazi Comparison

Former New York Times Supreme Court reporter Linda Greenhouse retains her fairness and balance: “I’m glad I’ve already seen the Grand Canyon . Because I’m not going back to Arizona as long as it remains a police state, which is what the appalling anti-immigrant bill that Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law last week has turned it into.”

CBS’s Smith: Hispanics See Arizona Law as ‘Purely Discriminatory’

Near the end of an interview with Arizona Senator John McCain on Tuesday’s CBS Early Show, co-host Harry Smith turned to the subject of illegal immigration and the new Arizona law to combat it: “a very tough immigration reform bill which basically makes it illegal for you to be in the state without some sort of documentation. Is this law the answer to the immigration crisis?” Smith followed up by wondering: “And for the millions of Hispanic Americans who live in Arizona , what do you say to them who feel like this bill is purely discriminatory?”

ABC: ‘Mostly Peaceful’ Immigration Protests vs. ‘Very Ugly’ Tea Party Rallies

In contrast, on March 20, World News host David Muir scolded, “Protesters against the [health care] plan gathered on the streets of the capital where late today we learned words shouted turned very ugly, reports of racial and homophobic slurs, one protester actually spitting on a Congressman.” Continuing to fret over those opposed the bill, he complained, “Late word from Washington tonight about just how ugly the crowds gathered outside the Longworth office building have become.”  On Saturday’s Good Morning America, reporter Mike Von Fremd downplayed the violence of protesters against Arizona’s new immigration law. He spun, “Riot police were called in to try and control demonstrators protesting outside the capital. Most were peaceful. A handful threw bottles at police and were arrested.” Yet, ABC derided March’s Tea Party rallies as “very ugly,” despite the fact that there were no arrests.

Labour’s Gordon Brown Pisses away election

Cultural elitists despise the filthy proles

Gordon Brown just called one of his own supporters a “bigot” because she dared question Labour’s policy of mass immigration.  Why?  Is it not her damn country that she should have a say?  She has a right to disagree with the Left’s multicultural experiment.   Brown was locked in a tight race for prime minister with Nick Clegg of the Lib Dems, and David Cameron of the Tories.  But I think he can kiss his chances goodbye now.

He made the comments as he got into his car after speaking to Mrs Duffy — not realising that he still had the Sky News mic pinned to his shirt.

He told an aide: “That was a disaster – they should never have put me with that woman. Whose idea was that? It’s just ridiculous.”

Asked what she had said, he replied: “Everything, she was just a bigoted woman.”

Mr Brown’s unguarded comments were made after the pensioner quizzed him about immigration claiming it was a taboo subject. During their exchange in the street, Mrs Duffy told the Prime Minister: “You can’t say anything about immigrants.”

She added: “All these eastern Europeans – where are they coming from?”  Mr Brown said a million people had come from Europe but another million Britons had moved the other way.  Mrs Duffy also complained about people on benefits.

She said: “There are too many who aren’t vulnerable and they can claim, and people who are vulnerable can’t get claims – can’t get it.”  Mr Brown said: “But they shouldn’t be doing that. There is no life on the dole for people any more.”  As he went to leave, the Prime Minister shook her hand and told her: “Very nice to meet you, very nice to meet you.”

She said she would not now be voting in the General Election.  Pressed on whether she still wanted Mr Brown in No10, she said: “I’m not bothered whether he does or not now. I don’t think he will.”  When Mr Brown was challenged over his remarks in a BBC radio interview, he looked dejected, and held his head in his hand before saying sorry.

Apparently many who vote Labour do so because they favor, well, Laborers, not the Left’s culture-destroying agenda.  In other words, shes’ a British “bitter clinger.”  Many of the rank and file, however, secretly disagree with this agenda– even if few dare voice their opinions out loud.  The pressure to remain a member in good standing of the “Liberal club” is high.  Which is why Gordon Brown’s response was not a “gaffe”.  The belief that you are bigots is universal and across the board among the Leftist elite such as him.  This is how they think, and it’s how they talk about you behind closed doors.   Last week it was Lib Dem Nick Clegg telling Britons they’re little better than Nazis, so now it was Gordon Brown’s turn to address the filthy proles of the formerly great Britain.  That just leaves David Cameron of the Tories now, who doesn’t strike me as much better than these two.  Yes, I know he’s “conservative”, but in the UK that’s the “House of Lords” version more than it is the populist version.  Here we call them “rinos” or “country club Republicans.”  Truly there is nobody to rally behind in the UK.  Below we get to see Mrs. Duffy’s shocked reaction when she hears about it.  It seems she will no longer be voting for him.

Geert Wilders Launches Bid for Prime Minister

Geert Wilders on the campaign trail.

This speech by Geert Wilders on April 26 officially launches his bid to reconquer Netherlands for the West.  This is a redacted version that touches mostly on the cultural themes.  English translation thanks to The Gates of Vienna.

Friday we presented our election program. And today our campaign begins. There was only one place we could do that: here in Rotterdam, here in Rotterdam-South [South bank of Rotterdam]. For this is not an ordinary city. This is the city of Coen Moulijn [1970s Feyenoord football celebrity], and Pietje Bell [famous children’s book series]. But more than anything else: this is the city of Pim Fortuyn. The man who paid with his life for his ideals.

This is also the city which is cracking at the seams like no other, as a result of mass immigration and Islamization. Entire neighborhoods are being Islamized. What was once the largest port in the world, is now the capital of Eurabia. A city of minarets and a mega-Mosque. There has never been any doubt about it. Only here in the city of Pim Fortuyn could we begin. And we do that tonight.

Here in Rotterdam we plant our flag and begin the reconquest of the Netherlands. We believe the best days of the Netherlands still lie ahead. That we are heading for a future that is many times more wonderful than what we leave behind us. If we only dare, if we only dare to choose. On June 9, the Netherlands can choose.

And the PVV wants to govern. We want to change the Netherlands. We want to take our responsibility. Without the PVV in a new government, the Netherlands will descend further into a morass of politically correct inaction. Without the PVV the problems of the Netherlands will not be solved, but will only worsen.

Meanwhile among many people the feeling arises that we are in the process of losing the Netherlands. Neighborhood after neighborhood, street after street, school after school. Mass immigration has achieved a sad record, and the coming years will only continue to explode. Crime is rampant, and anyone who watches “Opsporing Verzocht” [the TV program “Crime Watch”] for just two minutes knows that crime is often the result of the policy of “Sinterklaas come, but bring your servant inside”.

To many of the problems that afflict Netherlands the same diagnosis applies: elites have drifted away from reality and on their own started to do things that are no good to the ordinary people. Our elites have embraced the idea of “anything goes”. There is no good or evil, all cultures are equal, be they Islam or Christianity, shaking hands or not, who cares.

Even so, the Left-wing potentate have united with Islam. The Left and the Islam hitch up together. The leftist elite with pleasure closes its eyes to the reality: women’s oppression, hatred against gays, benefit dependency, street terrorism, the hostility towards democracy, etc.

Are we powerless? Should we patiently watch everything we hold dear being mangled by that nutty elite?

Of course not. The Netherlands must opt for solutions. If we want to, we can do it. Our ancestors saw a sloppy swamp-delta, and said: this will become an oasis. Rotterdam people once saw their city bombed to rubble, and said: together we put our shoulders under it. The Party for Freedom sees a country that is sinking further and further into the swamp and says: punch it up!

Full speech, here.

A tale of two protests: Tea Party vs. Immigration

The Left gets them young.

The Left was out in force yesterday, once again lighting something on fire in the name of “social justice.”  lol.  But this isn’t really about Leftwing hooligans, it’s about the LIBERAL MEDIA and the web of lies they spin for you every day.  Here a panel on Fox News takes a look at two very different protests and how they were covered in the Media.  Note the Lib apologist still peddling– without any evidence– the spitting and racism slander against the Tea Party.  Libs fall for their own agitprop every single time.

Chomsky Warns of Rise of the Far Right in the U.S.

NAZIS.

Everywhere you look there are Nazis.

But never fear, Noam is here.

The wave of disillusionment with the government and its rulers causes concern among some politicians who do not know what impact this might have on the elections of next November. But for others the issue is more alarming.

“It’s very similar to Weimar Germany, the parallels are striking.” Here, too, there is a tremendous disappointment with the parliamentary system, pointed Chomsky interviewing on Truthdig.

“The United States is very lucky that no honest and charismatic figure has appeared, and if this were to happen this country would be in real trouble for the frustration, disillusionment and the justified anger combined with the absence of a coherent response,” he concludes.

In Germany, he recalls, an enemy was created to explain the crisis which was the Jew.  “Here they are the illegal immigrants and blacks. We will say that white men are a persecuted minority. We will say that we must uphold and defend the honor of the nation.  Military force will be exalted. There will be blows. This could be converted into an undeniable force. And if it takes place, it will be more dangerous than Nazi Germany. The United States is a world power … I do not believe that this is far from happening,” he says.

[...]

Groan.

When the Left isn’t too busy cowering in fear of Islam, they’re calling you racists and Nazis.

You know what?  Maybe he’s onto something.  I mean, if you’re guilty no matter what of being a Nazi, you might as well reap some of the benefits, don’t you think?   With every single conservative household in America armed to the teeth, and the U.S. military basically on our side, it’s not like we couldn’t impose our theocracy overnight!  Overnight.  Think about it, you could have absolute power to do such Nazi things as observe National Day of Prayer, control your borders, wish people merry Christmas, etc.  Yeah, I know it’s not quite marching Liberals off to the gas chambers, but it’s a start!

Screenwriter Says Hollywood Conservatives ‘Have to Meet in Secret’ and ‘Talk in Whispers’

Successful author and screenwriter, Andrew Klavan, addresses several topics here– the Hollywood blacklist, how conservatives should respond to it, the purpose of art, and why Lefty do-gooders are the most censorious people on the planet.

Leftwingers were blackballed in the 50s because they were suspected of communist sympathies at a time when the Soviet Union posed an existential threat to America.  Today conservatives are blackballed because they’re suspected of not believing in gay marriage and GLBT restrooms.

Creators of ‘Everybody Draw Muhammad Day’ drop out

Mocking the religion of peace is not for the faint of heart, it seems.

The outcry from Comedy Central’s decision to censor an episode of South Park with depictions of Muhammad last week led a cartoonist and a Facebook user to fight back. That is until they realized it might be controversial, apparently.

On Friday, Norris told a radio talk show host in Seattle that she came up with the idea because “as a cartoonist, I just felt so much passion about what had happened…” noting that “it’s a cartoonist’s job to be non-PC.”

That passion, it appears, has lessened. And fast.

Her stark website today reads: “”I am NOT involved in “Everybody Draw Mohammd [sic] Day!”

“I made a cartoon that went viral and I am not going with it. Many other folks have used my cartoon to start sites, etc.  Please go to them as I am a private person who draws stuff,” she writes.  It went viral, however, because she was the one who passed it around. Sending it to people like Dan Savage, a popular Seattle-based blogger and nationally syndicated sex advice columnist.

Once it became a national story she reeled back, asking Savage — in an email he provided to The Ticket — if he would “be kind enough to switch out my poster” with another one — a much tamer version which has no images attributed to Muhammad.

“I am sort of freaked out about my name/image being all over the place,” her e-mail reads.  When asked about her change of heart, Norris told The Ticket that she didn’t intend for the cartoon “to go viral.”  Then why did she send the cartoon to the media in the first place?  “Because I’m an idiot,” Norris replied.

She doesn’t appear to be alone.  The creator of a Facebook page dedicated to the day has bowed out as well.  Jon Wellington told the Washington Post (before abandoning ship) that he created the page because he “loved [Norris's] creative approach to the whole thing — whimsical and nonjudgmental.”

While he was still associated with his own event he said: “To me, this is all about freedom of expression and tolerance of other viewpoints, so I hope you’ll help make this a sandbox that anyone can play in, if they want. I don’t think it’d be right under the circumstances for me (or anyone) to censor inflammatory posts *ahem*, but let’s be welcoming and inclusive, mmkay?”

Apparently the posts weren’t “welcoming” enough, as on Sunday morning he announced his departure from the cause. “I am aghast that so many people are posting deeply offensive pictures of the Prophet,” he writes. “Y’all go ahead if that’s your bag, but count me out.”

[...]

The West trembles in fear of Islam.

I’m not going to judge them for backing out.  Mocking Islam without the benefit of bodyguards takes real cojones.  It’s deadly serious business.  I myself would not do it if I thought it would put people close to me in danger.  So who can blame these bozos. Mocking Islam isn’t like going after unresponsive targets like Christianity and the “American Taliban” who Rosie O’Donnell and Joy Behar say are just as bad as Islamic fundies.  Nope, mocking the Christianists is not “edgy” at all, and requires no courage whatsoever.  In fact, it has now been exposed for the utter cowardice it really is.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali on the Muzzling of South Park

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jesusland @ 10:51

Ayaan Hirsi Ali says the dhimmification of South Park mirrors almost exactly how Theo Van Gogh was threatened and then murdered.

“If the entertainment industry were to take this on and show how ridiculous this is, there would be too many people to threaten.”

Dhimmification of South Park Exposes Western Decadence

The West is a civilization in decline, and it’s my personal opinion that modern Liberalism is both a cause and a symptom of that decline.  It is an ideology of entitlement and dissipation, and a worldview that in the name of “tolerance” and “diversity” fosters contempt for its own history, culture and traditions, while revering anything it considers “the other”– that is, when it’s not too busy cowering in dhimmified fear of it.  Here a column in the New York times, no less, agrees with me at least in spirit.

In a way, the muzzling of “South Park” is no more disquieting than any other example of Western institutions’ cowering before the threat of Islamist violence. It’s no worse than the German opera house that temporarily suspended performances of Mozart’s opera “Idomeneo” because it included a scene featuring Muhammad’s severed head. Or Random House’s decision to cancel the publication of a novel about the prophet’s third wife. Or Yale University Press’s refusal to publish the controversial Danish cartoons … in a book about the Danish cartoon crisis. Or the fact that various Western journalists, intellectuals and politicians — the list includes Oriana Fallaci in Italy, Michel Houellebecq in France, Mark Steyn in Canada and Geert Wilders in the Netherlands — have been hauled before courts and “human rights” tribunals, in supposedly liberal societies, for daring to give offense to Islam.

But there’s still a sense in which the “South Park” case is particularly illuminating. Not because it tells us anything new about the lines that writers and entertainers suddenly aren’t allowed to cross. But because it’s a reminder that Islam is just about the only place where we draw any lines at all.

Across 14 on-air years, there’s no icon “South Park” hasn’t trampled, no vein of shock-comedy (sexual, scatalogical, blasphemous) it hasn’t mined. In a less jaded era, its creators would have been the rightful heirs of Oscar Wilde or Lenny Bruce — taking frequent risks to fillet the culture’s sacred cows.

In ours, though, even Parker’s and Stone’s wildest outrages often just blur into the scenery. In a country where the latest hit movie, “Kick-Ass,” features an 11-year-old girl spitting obscenities and gutting bad guys while dressed in pedophile-bait outfits, there isn’t much room for real transgression. Our culture has few taboos that can’t be violated, and our establishment has largely given up on setting standards in the first place.

Except where Islam is concerned. There, the standards are established under threat of violence, and accepted out of a mix of self-preservation and self-loathing.

This is what decadence looks like: a frantic coarseness that “bravely” trashes its own values and traditions, and then knuckles under swiftly to totalitarianism and brute force.

Happily, today’s would-be totalitarians are probably too marginal to take full advantage. This isn’t Weimar Germany, and Islam’s radical fringe is still a fringe, rather than an existential enemy.

For that, we should be grateful. Because if a violent fringe is capable of inspiring so much cowardice and self-censorship, it suggests that there’s enough rot in our institutions that a stronger foe might be able to bring them crashing down.

Race Hustlers Turn on Obama

Filed under: Liberalism, Race — Tags: — Jesusland @ 00:05

Sooner or later the mob turns on their Messiah.

“He is not Moses, he is Pharaoh.”

“97% of our people voted for him.”

Show me the money!

Their sense of entitlement is off the charts.  Question though.  Who gives a single candidate 97% of their vote?  That is just sad.  Answer: primitive tribal societies like in Afghanistan,  Burundi, or Iraq– and of course minorities here in the U.S.  Where people vote as a collective for the strong man of their tribe to funnel the goodies back to them, like a Saddam Hussein or Hamid Karzai.  This is the racial legacy of the “progressives” over the last 40 years here in America– taking minorities backwards to our tribal days.

The New Tolerance: Militant Secularism vs Chritianity

Is Christianity under attack?  You already know what I think, now you be the judge.  Here the BBC, to its credit, tries its mightiest to be fair about the New Tolerance, yet still manages to comes off as somewhat of a secular progressive apologia.  It only recognizes multicultural “trends”, not a concerted agenda by the culture destroyers to impose this multiculturalism from above.  In fact, this is precisely WHY they are imposing multiculturalism on the West– to eradicate judeo-christian culture and traditions.  Nevertheless, there’s good stuff in here, including numerous outrageous examples of christian persecution.  Of course, as I’ve said before, the people most opposed to your judeo-christian culture and traditions are white Leftists, not the multi-culti immigrants they purport to speak for.  To the Leftist culture destroyers, multiculturalism means LESS culture (yours), not more.  But the vast majority of immigrants who come to the West are just working slobs like you and me.  They don’t come here with an agenda.  They just want a better life.  Yet it’s the immigrants who naturally get the blame for the social engineering projects of the Left.  That’s why CCHQ’s target when it comes to culture is overwhelmingly the LEFT– always the LEFT– not immigrants.  And now, after decades of silence, Anglican church leaders, the Pope, and even Jewish rabbis are finally beginning to voice their concerns as well– “Equality legislation is part of a secular ideology, and it cannot be allowed to run roughshod over religion.”  Moreoever, equality legislation is consistently being applied on a highly selective and anti-christian basis.  Below is what you get with the multi-culti package they sold you on back in the 80s– the eradication of your own judeochristian culture:

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

Part 6

There is gold in each and every one of these clips, but particularly in clip 5 where they discuss how Islamism is beginning to fill the moral and religious vacuum created by the Leftist doctrine of multiculturalism.

The War on Britain’s Jews

The real backlash isn’t against Muslims, it’s against the Jews.  It’s gotten so bad in parts of England that Orthodox Jews are provided a police escort to their synagogues.  Jewish schools are built like fortresses and are outfitted by the government with anti-bomb windows.  This kind of thing has traditionally come from the far Right.  But now Muslims as well as the Left are piling on too.

Ronald Reagan’s Farewell: On Informed Patriotism, Love of Country

What would Reagan think about post-America?

“Our spirit is back, but we haven’t re-institutionalized it.”

“As far as those who create the popular culture, well-grounded patriotism is no longer the style.”

“I’m warning of the eradication of the American memory that could result ultimately in an erosion of the American spirit.”

Driver wearing Islamic face veil fined in France

Nameless Muslim lady fined.

The French are getting a pair.

(AP) – A woman driver wearing an Islamic face veil has been fined by French police for not having a clear field of vision. The fine was small, but it garnered big attention Friday and may illustrate what is to come as the president pushes to outlaw the veils nationwide.  Traffic police in the western city of Nantes fined the 31-year-old woman euro22 ($29) in early April, her lawyer said. The fine was based on a rule that says drivers should have freedom of movement and a sufficient field of vision, lawyer Jean-Michel Pollono said.

Pollono said Friday that he is protesting the decision, saying a veil is no different from a motorcycle helmet in terms of hindrance to vision.  The driver gave a news conference Friday—while wearing the niqab veil, which covers the entire face except for the eyes—and expressed “a feeling of injustice” over the incident.

President Nicolas Sarkozy raised the stakes Wednesday in France’s drive to abolish the all-encompassing veil, ordering a draft law banning them in all public places.  He insists the veils oppress women, and decided to defy France’s highest administrative body, which says such a full ban could be found unconstitutional.

“A French citizen cannot be fined based on the way he or she dresses,” Pollono said. “If the veil is forbidden behind the wheel, then nuns should not be able to drive, and full helmets for motorcyclists should be banned, because you can’t see on the sides, and even some police units who drive with masks should be fined.”

Sarkozy’s move angered Muslims in the Arab world and worried Muslims in France, who fear they are being stigmatized because of a very small minority of women in France who cover their faces with niqabs or burqas.  A leading French conservative lawmaker who has been at the forefront of the push against the veils, Jean-Francois Cope, has been given police protection, officials said Friday.

The woman was not named in the press release as is normally the case.   She’s under a burka, you don’t need to know her name.

The Weekly Wilders: Free Speech

Geert Wilders Islamization speech in L.A. – April 2009.

“Free speech is no longer a given in Europe.”

“To exercise free speech has become a dangerous activity.”

“The biggest disease in Europe today is called cultural relativism.  The politically correct misconception that all cultures are equal.”
