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 … Continue reading Hyperbole is what ails America
@ketilbstensrud Ketil B. Stensrud LATEST: Eye-witness on Utøya LIVE on NRK just said that he saw 20-30 dead youths floating by the shore. Shocking. 1 hour ago via web
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 … Continue reading 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. While forcing Frey into hiding might count … Continue reading Good thing James Frey isn’t writing about Muhammad
The Corner’s Andrew Stuttaford on Lindsey Graham’s utter disregard for the First Amendment: If we start allowing Muslim mobs to dictate the limits of American free speech, this country will have sunk a very long way down. (via Andrew Sullivan)
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. Can we at least agree this kind of posturing is, at best, absurd? I salute his service, but I don’t recall Ike driving around with a pistol in his … Continue reading Rhetoric is not irrelevant
Obama to give Manhattan back to Native Americans?
More smugness from the eco-left:
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. Speaking of radical Islam, Bill Maher makes my point:
HuffPoster Diana Butler Bass, writing about the “South Park” imbroglio, ably disproves her point. I can’t and won’t defend the Revolutionmuslim website.

It is worth pointing out that Christianity has a long history of violence against visual depictions of Jesus, the … Continue reading 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 … Continue reading Score one for the fundamentalist thugs
Mark it down: May 20. My stick figure will be appropriately blasphemous.
Memo to Muslims offended by South Park’s depiction of their prophet: I’m offended that your religion facilitates the third-class treatment of women, and death for gays. And don’t tell me both sides could learn from the other — it’s all on them. Live in the Dark Ages if you want, but keep it to yourself. … Continue reading Keep your theocratic hands off my free society
