Watching Michael Moore and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello on Bill Maher’s show reminded me how alike the fringes are. Left and right, they share a victim’s mentality, along with an inflated sense of their own importance. The sky is always falling, and they never let facts get in the way of a […]Read more "Hyperbole is what ails America"

If Bill Ayers was an issue, then Michele Bachmann’s associations also deserve scrutiny. Meet Bradlee Dean: On his radio show, he’s alleged that gays were responsible for the Holocaust, and that gay men will, on average, molest 117 people “before they’re found out.” He’s also suggested that extremist Muslims who call for the execution of […]Read more "Judge them by their friends"

Disgraced author James Frey, in a new tome chronicling the Second Coming of Christ, depicts the Messiah as “an active bisexual who supports his prostitute girlfriend when she aborts her first child.” Replace Jesus with Muhammad and I think you can guess the consequences in places such as Kandahar.

I haven’t vetted this, and I’m reluctant to comment until all the facts are in. Still … UPDATE: Jesse Kelly was Giffords’ opponent in the Nov. election.

Re: The attempted car bombing of Times Square: The location is also adjacent to the Viacom building, fueling speculation that it might be linked to the company’s controversial South Park cartoon which recently depicted Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.

HuffPoster Diana Butler Bass, writing about the “South Park” imbroglio, ably disproves her point. I can’t and won’t defend the Revolutionmuslim website. But violence against those who depict the Divine is not just an Islamic problem. It is worth pointing out that Christianity has a long history of violence against visual depictions of Jesus, the […]Read more "Not all fundamentalists are the same"
COPENHAGEN – Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, who has been attacked and repeatedly threatened over a drawing of Prophet Mohammed, has been placed on indefinite leave by his newspaper “for security reasons,” he told AFP Thursday. “It is forced vacation but it looks a lot like I’m being retired,” the 75-year-old cartoonist said, adding that he […]Read more "Score one for the fundamentalist thugs"
