PEGIDA, Le Pen, Fascism, and Media Ignorance

When the media don't even understand basic political terminology, it raises a question: How can the electorate be informed when the purveyors of information are uninformed themselves?

The immigration model balkanizing the West was designed, as a leftist admitted in 2009, “to rub the Right's nose in diversity.” But the recent Muslim-jihadist attack in Paris is waking people up and and causing them to rub back — and the result may, ultimately, be bloody noses all the way around.

“My body, my choice!” may be a well-known rallying cry, but, increasingly, outside the realm of abortion it goes out the window. And the latest attack on this front involves a 17-year-old Connecticut teen told that she will undergo chemotherapy — whether she likes it or not.

There is a huge problem with “religion.” But it’s not what you think.

The Atlanta government may not yet be burning books, but they sure burned a man who wrote one. The Georgia city’s mayor, Kasim Reed, announced Tuesday that he had terminated Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran — for expressing Christian beliefs in a self-published book.

Was "the talk" that New York City mayor Bill de Blasio gave his black son the right one? Because, contrary to media myth, a scientific study indicates that police are actually less likely to shoot black suspects.

White is right in activists’ book. That is, the right color to ignore when it comes to stories of people shot by police.

The Bad Christian and the Good Secularist

“If not for my faith, I would be barely human.” That was the answer English writer Evelyn Waugh gave when asked, as all Christians will be at some point, how he could call himself a Christian given his behavior.

With freedom of speech and religion under attack, it is becoming clear that from Stockholm in the Baltic to Tamworth near the Tasman Sea, an iron burka has descended across the West.

 

It has been revealed that ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber admitted in 2009 that the bill lacked cost controls and that, inevitably, certain individuals would have to be denied care — all while Barack Obama was telling voters just the opposite.
