Ahmadi Muslims Expose Extremist Conference in Virginia

The Ahmadiya branch of Islam is considered heretical by mainstream Muslims because they believe in a latter day prophet from the 19th century. Therefore, the branch, which was founded in the British colony of India and mostly  centered in present-day Pakistan, is badly persecuted in that country and other Muslim countries where they reside. The Ahmadiyas have a good record when it comes to not being involved in terrorism. While the do subscribe to the Koran and revere Mohammad, along with the Sufis, they offer some hope of a peaceful coexistence between religions. Unfortunately, they are a small minority.

On November 18, Ahmadis managed to infiltrate a fund raiser featuring a speech by a Pakistani cleric in Springfield, Virginia. What they came away with is evidence of the type of thinking against non-Muslims (and Ahmadiyas) that has no place in America. The Ahmadiyas have posted this report in their newspaper, Rabwah Times.

"We went undercover to report on the day-long event which was organized by two U.S. registered charities, Idara Dawat-O-Irshad and Khatme Nubuwwat Center, both of which enjoy IRS tax-exempt status."

"The event’s keynote speaker was Habib-ur-Rehman Ludhianvi, a visiting Islamic cleric from Pakistan. In a 2016 piece, Ludhianvi who serves as the editor of monthly Millia magazine claimed that America was behind the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto."

“Have all Muslim lawyers died, why cant they learn and understand U.S. laws and then go present their case in front of the judge and explain that Qadianis [Ahmadis] are disrespecting Islam……..Islam is our faith and they [Ahmadis] are portraying their religious beliefs as Islamic beliefs ……. it should be made criminal for them to do so”

"During a Question and Answer session, Pakistani speaker Habib-ur-Rehman Ludhianvi warned the U.S. Government to “stop giving refuge to the adherents of the Qadiani faith [Ahmadis]” who he claimed were worse than Jews & Christians."

It seems there was a heavy Pakistani influence in this gathering.

Here is another report from an Ahmadi Muslim who attended. It appears in the Huffington Post.

I hope somebody in law enforcement is taking note.

Hillary Clinton Still Playing the Blame Game

"-Lights. Camera. Action."

-"Your audience is waiting, Madame President."

- "It was the Russians. Yes. It was the Russians. 
But I know what I'll do. I'll write another book."


Hillary Clinton is still, out there pimping her latest book and blaming the Russians and everybody else for her loss. In her latest interview with Mother Jones (the blog not the real person, of whom there must be tens of millions), Hillary once again laid blame on the Russians. She also blamed voter intimidation, which means she is lamenting the loss of all those crucial votes from illegal aliens and dead people.

Aside from being crooked, corrupt and dishonest, Hillary Clinton is also a very sick and demented woman. She has no idea just how badly she comes across as a sore loser. It's a wonder that anyone still wants to interview her and listen to the same sad story. I guess they figure if Hillary thinks up someone else to blame for her loss, they'll get a scoop.

As it is, Clinton is staring to remind me of Norma Desmond in the old movie, Sunset Blvd.

Is This Racist?

It looks like UC Berkeley is on the lookout for......well, something even though no crime has been committed. It seems that some rascal put up posters in the dead of night that read (viewer warning) "It's OK to be white". The Daily Californian has the "disturbing" story.

http://www.dailycal.org/2017/11/07/okay-white-posters-found-uc-berkeley/

It's refreshing to note that the campus police got it right for once. This is no hate crime because no other group was singled out. Given the current anti-white climate on college campuses, this seems a pretty innocuous way to point it out as being wrong. Maybe it's just another way to say to non-white students that white people are really not their enemy. Yet, it is clear that some snowflakes (no pun intended) on campus are offended. Their preferred message is that it is not OK to be white. Imagine if a poster read, "It's not OK to be black/brown/Asian", etc.

UCLA's Daily Bruin and the Meaning of Fascism

"Hat tip" Daily Bruin




As a frequent reader of campus newspapers online, I usually tend to go easy on student writers.Yet, it is disturbing to read the intellectual rot that fills the pages of so many campus publications. They are a mirror of what is going on in campus life. Those professors who teach journalism should hang their heads in embarrassment at what student journalists are putting out.

One of the worst campus papers I have seen is UC Berkeley's Daily Californian. UCLA's Daily Bruin is not much better. In the current edition of the Daily Bruin, there is an op-ed that I have chosen to cross-post here not to embarrass the writer or single her out for any backlash. I post it here to illustrate how absurd the discourse is at the university level. The writer accuses the Trump administration of being fascist in nature. That is a silly charge in that if it were true, she would not be able to write such an article. She also reveals her own intolerance to opposing views in the article.

As is my wont, I have added a couple of reader comments. The longest one is pending editorial moderation.

One thing that is encouraging is that reader comments often show common sense and take issue with articles like this. The problem is that it is difficult to know if the readers who comment are students or community members.

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

Gary Fouse

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

"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.
