Inherit The Wind (Rally for Free Speech This Tuesday)

Inherit The Wind (Rally for Free Speech This Tuesday)

Prosecutors in Tennessee are once again in the news.  Unlike the Scopes Monkey Trial, however, in this case they’re seeking to impose real penalties for uttering blasphemous thoughts. Even as the perpetrators and organizers of the Benghazi attack remain free, the first man in American history to be jailed for blaspheming the man Muslims...

Staten Island Rallies Against the NY SAFE Act

Staten Island Rallies Against the NY SAFE Act

Update: You can also read coverage of the event by the Staten Island Advance. The events of the past week have prevented us from discussing an issue dear to the hearts of many of our followers. Namely, the continuing, deliberate assault by public officials upon the intrinsic liberties of Americans. Specifically, the right to...

Rivers of Blood

Once again, the words of Enoch Powell appear prescient, although perhaps in not quite the way the late British parliamentarian and classicist intended. In the same week that Swedes have been besieged by aggrieved jihadists imported by their own government, Londoners experienced yet another subsidiary benefit of multiculturalism. This time, in the form of...

Waxing Crescent

A realistic exploration of the lengths to which Islam has encroached upon cultural norms and expectations in Europe was aired by the Christian Broadcasting Network last year. The incompatibility of Islamic dogma with freedom-as it’s commonly understood in the West-has been explored by writers like Mark Steyn and Christopher Caldwell many times over. The...

Manufactured Reality

Manufactured Reality

One of the chief distinctions between the anti-Israel rally and the slightly smaller, yet equally exuberant, pro-Israel counter-demonstration held in Times Square this weekend was the sentiments expressed by the participants. While the former vocalized their antipathy towards Israel and the United States and demanded ordinary Israelis be punished-through measures such as the BDS...

Palestinian By Proxy

Palestinian By Proxy

One image taken from the pro-Hamas rally held by Al-Awda NY, among other anti-Israel organizations, in Times Square this weekend. I wish I could say that it was anomalous in some way, but the inexorable truth is that the physically and intellectually etiolated creature you see above was probably as representative of the spirit...

Big Hate

Big Hate

The  Southern Poverty Law Center, as most of you already know, is one of the most heavily-cited media resources and noxious influences upon the body politic, especially as it pertains to  public debates over subjects such as immigration and the relationship between individual and state. When not inventing chimerical neo-Nazis and Klansman, defaming pro-Constitution...
