The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Homegrown Jihadi Caught in Bomb Plot; GOP-Hating Kid Is School Shooter

Remember in April 2009 how Obama’s Department of Homeland Security warned about the danger of “right-wing extremists”? If patriotic citizens are so dangerous, why is it that people who want to commit terrorism are typically devotees of the Religion of Peace™? For months, authorities allege, a 58-year-old avionics technician named Terry Lee Loewen — driven […]

Christian Groups Ask Pentagon to End Connection to ‘Anti-Christian’ SPLC

Domestic terrorism has consequences: The Thomas More Law Center with the Family Research Council (FRC) and 14 other organizations announced yesterday the submission of a letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel requesting that the Department of Defense (DOD) ensure that future training materials do not rely on information from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) […]

Anonymous Compares Bradley Manning to Nelson Mandela (Irony Alert)

#Anonymous is circulating this. Irony much? — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) December 12, 2013 In that analogy, President Obama is P.W. Botha and laws to punish disobedient soldiers are apartheid. Remember that Bradley Manning was the emotionally disturbed Army private who illegally provided classified U.S. documents to Julian Assange’s Wikileaks. Conservatives are often accused of […]

‘They Started to Fight Over Her and I Knew She Was Going to Be Raped’

Maybe if it had been committed by the Duke lacrosse team, you would have heard of this atrocity by now, but it happened five years ago in another country. Amanda Marcotte probably didn’t notice: Jamie Paterson, 17: “I was lying down and I could hear them undoing the TV and then throwing it across and […]

1987: Thatcher Responds to ‘Further Intensification of the Armed Struggle’

When Margaret Thatcher died in April, the British Left reacted with the kind of ugly viciousness you would expect of the British Left. This is worth remembering today when liberals are demanding that everyone must now forget the reality of who Nelson Mandela was. Thatcher’s death, in fact, was the occasion for the Left to […]

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 […]

Conor Friedersdorf’s Grassy Knoll

Conor Friedersdorf is the Lee Harvey Oswald of journalism — an alienated young man consumed by irrational hatred of his own country. Fortunately, the Secret Service need not worry about Friedersdorf purchasing a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle just now. The focus of his manic obsession is not the current president, but his predecessor. Bush Derangement Syndrome — […]

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.  

Relentless Perversity: #FreeKate Freaks Attempt to Silence Courageous Critics

The #FreeKate fascists don't want anyone to notice their campaign to silence @Jeanette_Runyon #tgdn — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) November 9, 2013 Evil never sleeps. Evil is active, shameless and persistent. The assault on virtue and truth continues every minute of every day, and anyone who fails to speak out against evil is thereby an […]

Did Terrorists Defeat Navy SEALs?

That’s what an article in the Christian Science Monitor suggests: A commando unit from the US Navy’s Seal Team Six launched an amphibious raid on a Somali town, but failed to confirm a capture or kill of their Al Shabab target, suspected to be linked to Nairobi’s Westgate mall terror attack. The operation could have […]

‘Hvilken Stilling Skyder Du På’?

That’s Danish for, “What position are you shooting at?” That question appears as a subtitle caption in video footage from Syria, so we can assume that it was a Danish video crew covering this scene with rebel gunmen in a firefight against Assad forces. In reply to the question, one of the gunmen answers, “We […]

Horror in Nairobi: Muslim Terrorists Tortured, Raped, Mutilated Victims

The British Independent quotes an account from a Kenyan newspaper about the gruesome atrocities perpetrated against victims of the Westgate Mall attack. The Independent is careful to note that these details have not been officially confirmed. Then again, we don’t even have a confirmed number of dead and injured from the attack yet, and so […]
