The Ugly American in Denmark

"At least I'm not an ugly American."

When Hans Christian Andersen wrote The Ugly Duckling, he had no idea about the Ugly American, a concept that would come to being after his death. Well, the Ugly American was most recently spotted in Aarhus, where an American woman took issue with someone wearing a Trump MAGA cap. What happened next was caught on videotape.

Berkeley Braces for Hurricane Free Speech

This article first appeared in New English Review Review.



Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro was able to complete his speech at the University of California  last week thanks to the campus and Berkeley police shedding their potted plant costumes and ensuring that free speech was actually possible. Now comes the big storm. September 24-27 has been declared Free Speech Week as conservative speakers will be attempting to exercise their constitutional rights. Not surprisingly, the far-left is trying to shut it down-violently if necessary, while the university tries to shut it down with red tape and security fees.

Acting in the spirit of education, over 132 Berkeley professors signed a letter asking students to stay off campus during the above days and skip classes. Neat. I suggest students leave campus permanently since they are not getting an education anyway. They can be just as well indoctrinated sitting at home on their computers.

Judging from the announcement (linked above), it's pretty much an all star cast. One of the lesser-known speakers is a young lady to watch. Ariana Rowlands is a former president of the UC Irvine campus Republicans, a real burr under the saddle of UCI administrators. Here is what she says on Facebook about how college administrators are attempting to keep conservative speakers off campuses.

"The newest college administration trick to stop a conservative speaker from speaking at their campus is to pretend like they're going to be cooperative with the event and make empty promises to bring the student group's guard down. Then, just when event details need to be finalized, the administration completely flips the script by digging up arbitrary reasons as to why the previously agreed to contractual requirements cannot be fulfilled and gives new, completely unacceptable requirements that must be met by a fast-approaching deadline or else they say they'll be forced to cancel the event. Colleges across California are attempting this. Sad! They will lose!"

Ariana should know. She went through this with the UC Irvine administrators when she was bringing Milo Yiannapoulos to UCI. They attempted to suspend the College Republicans for a year over some security misunderstanding. They were forced to back down when a national furor arose. In the end, the College Republicans made the UCI administration look like a bunch of boobs.

For those who care about free speech, the eyes of the nation will be on Berkeley September 24-27. No doubt the forces of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and a few Palestinian flags will show up and make their voices heard. If the cops elect to show a low profile (their preference) and once again assume the position of potted plants, there will be violence. It will not come from the organizers and supporters of the events.

How ironic that conservatives have to put up big security fees when it is the other side that poses the threat of violence. It reminds me of the old Mafia protection racket where store owners had to pay Vinnie and Sluggo money every month to be "protected"-from them.

It's Hillary Time

Hat tip Gossip Cop


"Buy my book, Everybody !"


Hillary Clinton is back, refreshed and in full PR mode. Her latest book, "What Happened", full of excuses about all the people and forces that took the election from her. Today she was on The View. Typical Hillary stuff. Sympathetic audience and softball questions from the panel with the exception of  Jedediah Bila. Even Bila disappointed me. Easy questions with no followup to destroy Hillary's lying answers. And Hillary was in full lying mode. She even had the gonads to talk about the need to fully investigate all those Trump scandals blithely ignoring the obvious fact that her own greatly outnumber any scandals attributable to Trump.

Next up is the Big Interview with Anderson Cooper, which promises to be more obscene than Anderson's infamous duos with Kathy Griffin.

She is the woman who will never go away.

A Must Read: Stealth Invasion

Hat tip Creeping Sharia and Investigative Project on Terrorism




“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.” 
-From The Explanatory Memorandum

The blog, Creeping Sharia, has a piece tonight on an important new book. It is called Stealth Invasion by Leo Hohmann and describes the mass migration of Muslims into the West.

https://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2017/08/01/stealth-invasion/



The book argues (and I concur) that this is part of a plan originated by the Muslim Brotherhood. The plan is to implant Islam upon the West through mass migration and demographic change. It is not about assimilating into American society, rather "destroying the Western Civilization from within". This is from a document called the Explanatory Memorandum seized in 2004 by the FBI and used as a government exhibit in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, which involved Islamic charities diverting money to Middle East terror groups. The letter, which was addressed to the "North American Brothers" and had an address list that included many US Islamic organizations-including the Muslim Student Association, outlined the duties of the North American Brothers to undermine US civilization and lay the groundwork for Islam to be supplanted upon the West. It was not about blowing up bombs or killing people. It was using our system, institutions, and laws to subvert us while working for demographic change and acceptance of Islam. The Islamization of the US.

Civilizational Jihad


The problem, which is noted in the above link, is that too many of these people arriving have values that are opposed to our own. The leadership of most of the major Islamic organizations in the US, like CAIR, MPAC, ISNA, ICNA and others, have demonstrated that their goals and visions do not coincide with ours. There is an agenda, which is to gradually supplant American  freedoms with Islamic values and sharia law. Yes, it is a long-term project, but the roots have been firmly planted. Look at what is happening in Europe today.

I highly recommend this book, and I will be getting it myself.

Why Did Facebook Take Down the Counter Jihad Coalition Page?

It is pretty clear now that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is engaging in politically-correct censorship. My friends and colleagues at the Counter Jihad Coalition advise me that Facebook has taken down the CJC page. Jihad Watch has the report.

https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/07/sharia-facebook-removes-counter-jihad-coalitions-page-without-explanation

First of all, CJC is not a hate group. It is, in fact, a human rights group. CJC does not advocate discrimination or hate crimes against Muslims. What CJC advocates is full rights for those mistreated under Islam, women, gays, and religious minorities. To be sure, CJC is against any implementation of sharia law. To be sure, CJC educates the public as to the dangers of Islamic ideology. I myself would not be part of this organization if it were a hate group.

Zuckerberg has the right to run his Facebook enterprise however he wants and according to his beliefs, but the rest of the public has a right to react accordingly. I have already been turned off  by reports that Zuckerberg is collaborating with Angela Merkel to tamp down on negative comments about Islam in Germany. I have a Facebook page, but I am re-evaluating its continued usage.  I have sent my concerns to Facebook for whatever it's worth.

If someone were advocating burning down  mosques or killing Muslims on Facebook, I would support taking that page down. This is not the case, however. Facebook should restore CJC's page without delay.

Would-Be Suicide Bomber Thwarted in Mecca

Image result for ramadan in mecca


A suicide bomber who was planning to attack the Grand Mosque in Mecca as one million Muslims had converged there to mark the end of Ramadan, blew himself up as police raided a house near the Mosque. No other deaths were reported though there were injuries.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/saudi-says-suicide-bomber-killed-in-foiled-mecca-plot/2017/06/23/cfe4c5bc-5882-11e7-840b-512026319da7_story.html?utm_term=.0baa23770bc5

This has been a particularly bloody month of Ramadan this year. It is supposed to be a time of fasting and good thoughts/deeds. At least that's what they tell us. Yet, the jihadis apparently consider it a prime time to kill. And why are these pilgrimages to Mecca often marked by violence?

I don't get it.

Good News: MPAC Loses DHS Grant

Hat tip Investigative Project on Terrorism and Karen Lugo for passing this on


The Muslim Public Affairs Council is another one of those phony moderate Islamic organizations in the US that poses as moderates. In reality, they are a front for the Muslim Brotherhood. Their CEO, Salam al Marayati, is a phony moderate who once told me there was no death penalty in Islam for apostasy (a lie). Under the Obama administration, this organization participated in a giant ruse with the government called, "Countering Violent Extremism", which relied on mosques and groups like MPAC to root out the "violent extremists" in their own community and train them to be good little citizens. Now the Trump administration has wisely withdrawn funding from MPAC.

https://www.investigativeproject.org/6333/dhs-denies-grant-to-islamic-radicalization

As the article aptly points out, MPAC is one of law enforcement's biggest critics when it comes to catching terrorists in the US. Depending on MPAC and the imams and mosques to identify and cure would be terrorists (as opposed to identifying them and notifying police) is like expecting elephants to pass the peanuts.

This entire Countering Violent Extremism program should be halted and replaced with something more sensible like monitoring extremist mosques.
