Electing A New People

I took the image you see above in my old stomping grounds of Bay Ridge, which has earned the moniker Beirut in recent years, for obvious reasons. Aside from the Alpine Theater-which was in danger of being added to the adjacent mosque at one point-and Galaxy Comics, you would be hard-pressed to find a...

Sudden Jihadi Syndrome Strikes again

Sudden Jihadi Syndrome Strikes again

Update: Stop carping about your subjugation, you nasty Islamophobe!  This time in France, a nation where 119 people have been murdered-some after undergoing indescribable torture-and over 800 people maimed in the past year alone. Just as previous generations pondered important questions, e.g. is it live, or is it Memorex? So too we have to...

2 Crimes

Update: Suspect taken into custody. In Switzerland, however, the suspect has died of his wounds.  So far Swiss authorities have not come to the conclusion that the stabbing spree/arson attack on train passengers was linked to terrorism.

Australia, a country once known for its insouciant attitude towards political correctness and multiculturalism, has become...

Rattle On (A Momentous Anniversary)

You are reading the 1,500th (extended) post to American Rattlesnake, a project which began in the febrile imagination of my friend and colleague, Michel Evanchik. If you had told me in 2010 that over half a decade later this website would exist, let alone be flourishing, I would have scoffed. Those of you who...

Rotten To The Core

Rotten To The Core

As if we needed a reminder that the Augean Stables of our federal government need to be cleansed from top to bottom, this week brought news of an FBI agent encouraging a would-be Muslim assassin in the days leading up to the jihadist assault on Garland, Texas.

Clash of Cultures (The West’s Reckoning)

Update: Yes, I realize that this image macro has a typo, but there’s only so much proper grammar you can expect from people on the Internet.  One of the more  arresting scenes in Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s memoir takes place when she visits her dying father in a London hospital. A man that despised the...

In Memoriam: Deanna Rose

In Memoriam: Deanna Rose

A few months ago we told you about the struggle of my friends the Bacas, whose family home was destroyed in a tragic house fire. As I described in that post, there are few things more disorienting than losing your home.

Parade Of Horribles

Parade Of Horribles

Even as events conspire to make hash of the narrative contrived by Hillary Clinton and the national media, i.e. Vladimir Putin’s exposure of the awfulness of the Democratic Party is the true threat to American democracy, the politically correct variety show in Philadelphia proceeds apace. Before tonight is over you will have endured the...
