A Call For A Statute Of Limitations On Cheap Equivalences

by Smitty I’ve had about a belly full of this noise, emphasis mine: it’s plain that some branches or interpretations of the faith view any depictions of the Prophet Mohammed as blasphemy. That doesn’t mean that all Muslims who see such depictions as blasphemy think the appropriate response is violence; far from it. But a […]

‘The Worst in Demagoguery’

Certainly, Joan Walsh is an expert in demagoguery: Consider, if you will, the recent behavior of Salon’s Joan Walsh, who yesterday suggested in earnest that the conservative-led condemnation of the “climate” that supposedly provoked the shootings in New York City represented the unconscionable “politicization” of murder. “To blame the peaceful movement against police brutality that’s […]

Why Ferguson?

Riot police on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri. “Fox and CNN viewers witnessed a police car, a car dealership and the local Little Caesar’s Pizza set ablaze, a beauticians’ store looted, a McDonald’s with its windows smashed — and ‘Full circle: Liquor store Michael Brown accused of robbing being looted.’” — Ed Driscoll, Nov. 24, […]
