Tom Perez: &*$#ing DNC Chair

It has been a long time coming, but it’s here. Progressives (leftists, statists, socialists, communists, Obamites, take your pick) have escalated their tactics. They’ve always been intimidating, even violent, motivated by self-imagined and assured moral and intellectual superiority, and their unshakeable belief in the depravity, even evil of their political enemies. But with the utter failure of Hillary Clinton, the repudiation of Barack Obama and his/their policies, and the election of Donald Trump, more and more of them have willingly become criminally insane.

Feeling jealousy over the accomplishments of others is commonly thought to be a sign of poor breeding. It is, at the least, indicative of a selfish personality. However, mocking those given conspicuous public awards for political purposes is a venerable American sport, one in which I occasionally participate.

No matter how bad the decline of a socialist state might be, there are always American fellow travelers helping out. I’ve been following the rapidly declining fortunes of Venezuela for some time now. In This Time It’ll Work, earlier this year, I wrote:

Honor killing victims

Does Islam mandate the genital mutilation of girls and women? Scholars differ on the relevant passage, as this link reveals.  However, even if one accepts the idea that it is not mandated, Islam’s other teachings, and its related cultural practices, which relegate women to a status little better than cattle, has made it inevitable in many Muslim societies. Such societies also routinely practice honor killing, the murder of women by any of their male relatives, for dishonoring their families. Such a case occurred in Irving, TX in 2008, when Egyptian, Yasar Abdel Said, murdered his 17 and 18 year-old daughters for becoming too westernized. He bravely ran away, likely to Egypt, and remains on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. In Muslim Conquest Of The West: We’re Doing It For Them, Barbaric medieval practices are more common in American that the press reports. A story of genital mutilation, taking place in Detroit, is reported by Brietbart.

Islamic Rage Boy, credit: siesta.pk

When Islam infiltrates any nation, its moves are predictable, not only because they are mandated by its faith, but because history clearly records them. Minnesota is a bastion of leftism, and because of that, has been particularly welcoming to Islam. However, Minnesotans are beginning to awaken to what they’ve done to themselves, and to what radical Islamists intend to do to them, and all of America. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports:

The School Prayer Narrative

This is an article I originally posted in 2012, but the topic frequently comes up, not only in my teaching, but in media, and, well, just about everywhere. The idea that the Supreme Court, or government, or “them” (as Steve Martin said in Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid, “only they know who is them”), have somehow outlawed prayer in public schools is one of the most persistent, and wrong, narratives out there. The opening of the article referred to the then-recent Sandy Hook school attack, but the narrative has been used to explain a great many examples of supposed societal calamity since. I’ll make a few necessary changes as I go along to update things.
