A Week of Diversity and Terror

Mar 27, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

On Saturday, Ziyed Ben Belgacem pays a visit to Orly Airport in Paris. He grabs a female soldier from behind and grapples for her rifle while holding a pellet gun to her head. He warns the other soldiers to drop their rifles and raise their hands.

He shouts, “I am here to die in the name of Allah ... There will be deaths.”

Pray for Sanity

Mar 23, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Pray for London, Brussels and Paris. Then pray for Berlin, Nice and London again. And when you’re done, it might be your city’s turn to be on the wrong end of that hashtag.

Pray that on the way to work you don’t get run over, shot or stabbed by a man yelling “Allahu Akbar”.

Pray that your government doesn’t decide to open the borders to as many migrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and any other terror state as can make their way over. Pray that the next government doesn’t do it either. And pray that if it does, they don’t move in near you.

College safe spaces don’t cover macroaggression violence against conservatives

Mar 22, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Bombthrowers:  There has been a proliferation of safe spaces for identity politics groups, based on race or illegal alien status, that claim to be oppressed. Much of this oppression involves microaggressions. But there isn’t much interest in macroaggression, according to the College Fix.

Of the 12 students interviewed by the Manitou Messenger, several have been violently threatened because of their political beliefs, and almost all of them feel as though they can’t speak up about politics on campus – in class, online or with their friends. …

Trump vs. Obama

Mar 21, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Obama is a coward.

Trump will call someone a name while Obama will anonymously source a smear through three levels of staffers, political allies and reporters. Trump called CNN “Fake News” on camera. Obama sourced Operation Rushbo, targeting Rush Limbaugh, through a variety of White House people and left-wing allies. Trump will boot reporters he doesn’t like. Obama authorized secretly hacking the emails of a FOX News reporter. Trump had an openly hostile conversation with the Prime Minister of Australia. When Obama wanted to call Netanyahu “chickens__t”, he did it by having one of his people anonymously plant it with a reliable media sycophant, The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, before later having a spokesman disavow it. Poultry ordure doesn’t smell any worse than that.

Why Turkish President Recep Erdogan is still the world’s best Nazi

Mar 19, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Bombthrowers:

After their little hatefest in the Netherlands climaxed with riots, shouts of Allahu Akbar and anti-Semitic slurs, Turkey’s tyrant, an Islamist named Erdogan, who has more political prisoners than research scientists, decided to call the Dutch, Nazis.

Since it’s 2017, that involved lots of Twitter trolling and assorted public tantrums. There’s one problem though. If you had to pick a Nazish dictator, it would be Erdogan.

Let’s consider the Hitler points in Erdogan’s favor.

The Price of Privilege

Mar 16, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

A proposal has been making its way through the social justice sewer system to have white people pay a 5% privilege tax.

That would be a lot cheaper than the current wealth redistribution built into the tax system.

In 2004, black people made up 12% of the population and 20% of those who didn’t file taxes at all. It was estimated that 50.7% of African American households, 52% of Hispanic households and 37% of white households paid no income taxes.

Obama’s Third Term is Here

Mar 14, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

After Trump secured the nomination, Obama’s people filed a wiretapping request. As he was on the verge of winning, they did it again. After he won, they are doing everything they can to bring him down.

It was always going to come down to this.

The Endless Ages of Purim

Mar 12, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Tonight the celebration of the holiday of Purim begins. Purim is a Jewish holiday often neglected outside the more religious communities in America and the State of Israel because it commemorates an attempt to exterminate the Jews. And we all know that stopped being a problem long ago.

If Purim had culminated with some smart power diplomacy and a lesson on tolerance, liberal Jews might be more inclined to celebrate it. Unfortunately it ends with a genocidal madman being hung from a tree and the Jews fighting for their lives, winning and slaughtering their enemies.

And instead of feeling guilty about it, their descendants eat pastries, dress up in costumes and get drunk. At least those of their descendants who believe in survival instead of surrender.

Nancy Pelosi versus Nancy Pelosi on Obamacare

Mar 9, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Bombthrowers:  Nancy Pelosi has many views on Obamacare. Here’s one of them.

“The truth? ACA resulted from one of the most transparent drafting processes in recent memory.”

That’s from March 7, 2017.

Back when Obamacare was on the table, she had a different version of her story. Then it was, “But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it.”

Which Nancy Pelosi do you believe? Was Obamacare the most transparent bill ever? Or did we have to pass it to find out what a disaster it truly was?

Middlebury College is the second time SPLC’s labeling led to violence

Mar 8, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

—BombThrowers: The Middlebury College attackers who shut down Charles Murray’s talk and assaulted a professor accompanying him drew their argument in part from a familiar source. They cited the Southern Poverty Law Center’s labeling of Murray as a racist.

This isn’t the first time that the SPLC’s efforts of supposedly labeling “extremists” has led to violence against its targets. The worst such incident remains the attack on the Family Research Council headquarters by an attacker who used its “hate map” as the basis for his plot.

Ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch calls for violent protests against Trump

Mar 6, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Bombthrowers:  This isn’t really new. Obama and his people encouraged violent racist protests using similarly coded language. Lynch is just carrying on the same custom.

Her language is careful. Its apparent invocation of the Civil Rights movement gives it cover. But everyone knows exactly what the former Attorney General is talking about. And this is as blatant as Team Obama has gotten in calling for open war.

How to Fake an Islamophobia Crisis

Mar 4, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Look out! It’s another fake Islamophobia crisis

“Huge Growth in Anti-Muslim Hate Groups During 2016: SPLC Report,” wails NBC News. “Watchdog: Number of anti-Muslim hate groups tripled since 2015,” FOX News bleats. ABC News vomits up this word salad. “Trump cited in report finding increase in US hate groups for 2nd year in a row.”

The SPLC stands for the Southern Poverty Law Center: an organization with slightly less credibility than Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, and without the academic degree in greasepaint.

Trump team members who are realistic about Islam and illegal immigration are the target

Mar 3, 2017 — Daniel Greenfield

Bombthrowers: Isn’t it funny how the people being targeted for attacks are those figures in the Trump administration whose views are most out of step with the consensus, not just in the Democrat ranks, but among Republicans.

The conventional wisdom in some conservative circles is that the goal is to bring down President Trump.  Sure, the left would like that. But it’s not just the left doing it.
