Shocking: Brandeis Feminist Faculty Led Petition Against Aayan Hirsi Ali

The wretched cowardice of Brandeis University in rescinding an honorary degree for human rights activist Aayan Hirsi Ali surprised a lot of people. A victim of female genital mutilation (FGM), Ali was the target of terroristic threats in the Netherlands for speaking out against Islamic oppression of women. The question was asked, “Where’s the feminist […]

Professor Herf Gets It Right

Earlier this week, we noted Brandeis University’s cowardly surrender to the forces of political correctness (or perhaps, creeping Sharia). The president of Brandeis gets an earful from Jeffrey Herf, a University of Maryland history professor with a Ph.D. from Brandeis: That the president of a university founded by Jews in the immediate aftermath of the […]

Does #LGBT Care About a Religious Extremist Burning a Gay Bar?

Apparently not, if the religious extremist is named Musab Musmari, who police say “poured gasoline on a carpeted stairway and set it ablaze” inside Seattle’s “popular gay nightclub” Neighbours on New Year’s Eve, when 750 people were inside the club. The gay-rights movement in America is entirely owned by the Democrat Party, and is therefore […]

Islam’s Terrorist African Caliphate

Will America stand idle while this happens? Islamist militants stormed a village in remote northeast Nigeria on Monday, torching houses and spraying them with bullets in an attack that killed 18 people, witnesses said. The latest Boko Haram assault, on Sunday night, came hours before Nigeria’s four top military chiefs handed over to fresh commanders […]

This Was Probably Predictable

Ace of Spades: American troops spilled their guts fighting Al Qaeda in Fallujah in 2004. And now, AQ has driven out all representatives of the Iraqi government and raised its flag over government buildings. Like nature, Islamic extremism abhors a vacuum: Black-clad Sunni militants of Al Qaeda destroyed the Falluja Police Headquarters and mayor’s office, […]

‘U.S. Hate Preacher’?

When I saw that phrase in a headline, I at first thought they were talking about Phil Robertson, but no, it refers to Harlem-born Islamic extremist Khalid Yasin, whose hateful doctrine inspired Michael Adebowale, one of the perpetrators of the Woolwich Massacre. The article points out that Khalid Yasin preaches hatred toward homosexuals, in addition […]

Britain Belatedly Admits It Has an ‘Islamist Extremism’ Problem

Woolwich, England, May 22: Killer shouted, ‘Allahu akbar!’ Gee, how did they ever figure this out? Britain plans to classify “Islamist extremism” as a distinct ideology, British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Tuesday, as part the government’s response to the murder of a soldier on a busy London street. Cameron said he would implement […]

The Fear That Dare Not Speak Its Name

An art show in London was cancelled because of fears of Islamic terrorism, and arts writers at major newspapers ignored the cancellation. Mark Steyn has a few thoughts.  

Canadian Muslim Arrested in Somalia After Reportedly Beheading His 4 Sons

Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugged had this story, citing the Blazing Cat Fur blog and, to be honest, my reaction was, “You’re kidding me.” Surely, this had to be some kind of right-wing Islamophobic urban legend spread by irresponsible Internet gossip-mongers. Because I constantly watch the news — my TV is tuned to MSNBC at […]

The Face of Cowardice: Theresa May

Meet the hideous creature who banned Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from England: British Home Secretary Theresa May, a disgrace to her office, to her nation and to every British citizen who ever lived. On June 25, this deplorable stain on the reputation of a once honorable people “personally directed that [Geller] should be excluded from […]

Stereotype: Neurobiology Majors Just Can’t Resist Those Sexy Seventh-Graders

It’s a familiar problem in every college town: How to keep the neurobiology majors from banging middle-school girls. Oh, sure, the nuclear physics department always has its share of jailbait-chasers and more than a few chemical engineers have a taste for the young stuff, but every university administrator knows this: Nine times out of 10, […]

LGF Auto-Beclownment Update

Really, I should feel guilty for so thoroughly enjoying these predictable outbreaks of Johnsonian idiocy. In case you didn’t notice, the terrorist attack in London this week was not committed by radical Belgians or militant creationists or any of the other overblown right-wing bogeymen that occupy the demented mind of Jazzy McPonytail. No, it was […]
