Hey Statue-Hating Snowflakes: Barack Obama’s Ancestors Owned Slaves

Former President Barack Obama will have a bronze statue of his likeness revealed some time next month in Rapid City, South Dakota. It is one in a series of all former presidents mounted on street corners throughout the city (one of which is the Bill Clinton one which his rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick has demanded to be removed).

But it looks as if there will be a problem with the statue of the 44th POTUS, especially in today’s hypersensitive racial climate. No, we’re not talking about disgusting neo-Nazis protesting a statue dedicated to a Black Man. Nor is it because as president economic conditions for African-Americas relative to Caucasians declined. But no Obama statue should be built because he is descended from slave-owners.


Millennials Say They’d Prefer Venezuela Food Lines Over America’s Income Inequality

In a new video, Ami Horowitz hits the streets to find out what’s rattling around in the younger generation’s collective mind on the hot button millennial topics of income inequality and socialism — particularly, the socialist utopia Venezuela, which is experiencing economic collapse, prompting crisis-level food shortages and the eruption of violence on the streets.

Horowitz ended up finding what anyone paying any attention to the Democratic presidential primary last year will not be surprised to learn: the generation which adores “Democratic socialist” Bernie Sanders hates income inequality so much that they’d be glad to stand in Venezuelan-style food lines so others could have as little as them.


Freshmen told: Welcome to college, now confront racism and privilege

Before the fall semester even kicked off at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, incoming freshmen were asked to ponder race and privilege — and what they could do about it.

On Friday, the public university’s freshmen orientation included a program called “First Class” that focused on the school’s common reading program selection “Between the World and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates.


Quebec village refuses to remove swastika-emblazoned anchor from park

The municipality of Pointe-des-Cascades, Que., says it won’t remove an anchor adorned with a swastika in a neighbourhood park because the piece has historical significance.

Last Thursday, Corey Fleischer, the founder of Erasing Hate, was called to Parc Saint-Pierre in the small village west of Montreal to remove the swastika.

Fleischer is known for patrolling the Montreal area to scrub away hateful graffiti.

But as he went to paint over the swastika, Fleischer was confronted by the mayor, who called the provincial police to have him removed from the park.


Iran’s atomic chief has warned that the country needs only five days to ramp up its uranium enrichment to 20 percent, a level at which the material could be used for a nuclear weapon.

The comments by Ali Akbar Salehi to Iranian state television come as US President Donald Trump repeatedly has threatened to renegotiate or walk away from the 2015 nuclear deal.
Salehi’s warning, along with recent comments by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, show Iran is willing to push back against Trump while still acknowledging they want to keep the deal, which lifted crippling economic sanctions on the country.

Chemicals capable of making an explosive nicknamed ‘Mother of Satan’ were allegedly found in the possession of four men accused of plotting a Christmas Day terror attack in Melbourne, a court has been told.

Federal police chemicals expert Vincent Otieno-Alego analysed substances that could produce up to 2g of triacetone triperoxide (TATP), he told Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Hamza Abbas, 22, his 23-year-old brother Ibrahim Abbas, Ahmed Mohamed, 24, and 26-year-old Abdullah Chaarani appeared in court for the second day of a pre-trial committal hearing.

Housewife jailed for blasphemy in Indonesia

An Indonesian housewife has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison for insulting Islam, an official said Tuesday, the latest conviction under the country’s controversial blasphemy law.

Siti Aisyah, 47, was found guilty on Monday evening of spreading Islamic teachings that differed from local ulemas — religious leaders — and calling them liars for disagreeing with her.

Her conviction comes at a time of rising concerns about religious intolerance in a country traditionally regarded as a bastion of tolerant Islam.

Finland Attack Suspect, a Muslim, Was Flagged for Extremist Views

Victim of Muslim terrorist Turku Finland 2017

The Moroccan teenager accused of carrying out Finland’s first jihadist terrorist attack had been flagged months ago for extremist views, around the time he was denied asylum, the authorities said on Monday.

The teenager, Abderrahman Mechkah, 18, stabbed two women to death and injured eight other people on Friday afternoon in the center of Turku, a city of about 180,000, according to the police. Officers shot and injured him.

The authorities are treating the case as an act of terrorism targeting women.

The police in southwestern Finland got a tip at the beginning of this year about the teenager, saying he was “radicalized and interested in extremist thinking,” according to Jyri Rantala, a spokesman for the Finnish Security Intelligence Service, or SUPO.

The tip was passed on to the intelligence service but was not given priority because there was no reference to a specific threat, Mr. Rantala said.

Let Us Now Praise Muslim Apostates

Standing up to political correctness and facing death threats, the Muslim apostate writers Ibn Warraq and Ayaan Hirsi Ali have honored our increasingly endangered Western heritage of free thought, which includes the right—indeed, the obligation—to subject religious dogma to criticism and reason. In a series of provocative books and personal testimonies over two decades, they have educated us about the historical and religious roots of the Islamist onslaught against democratic institutions.

US Liberals cozy up to Antifa, America’s anti-free speech ‘Taliban’

The liberal media is pushing the idea that any violence committed on the part of Antifa, the so-called ‘anti-fascist’ leftist group, is acceptable if it is directed at the political right. Such delusional thinking will only lead to civil war.

Following the recent spate of violence that rocked Charlottesville after right-wing groups assembled to protest the removal of a Confederate statue, it became quickly apparent the US media had a dog in this fight. And a vicious dog at that.

Liberals howled in pain after Trump called out not only the aggressive tactics of the ‘alt-right,’ but of the ‘alt left’ as well, saying there was “blame on both sides.”

Free Speech: The Left Moves In for the Kill

The Left is mounting an all-out assault against the freedom of speech, and is using Charlottesville as its Reichstag Fire moment to try to crush all dissent.

Several days ago, I received an email that set in motion a chain of events leading to my website, Jihad Watch, being dropped from PayPal. After an immense public outcry, the Jihad Watch PayPal account was restored — not that I ever intend to use it again. But this episode illustrates the Left’s determination to silence all of its foes rather than debate them, and these fascists won’t rest until no one dares oppose their agenda.

Nazi-Hunting Fantasies Have Unhinged The Left

After Charlottesville, the Left’s tendency to smear anyone who disagrees with them as a Nazi is spiraling to the point of paranoid insanity.

I’m worried that the Charlottesville riots are making the Left psychologically unhinged in the same way that they have been unhinged by the election of Donald Trump, only more so.

The problem with their reaction to Donald Trump is that he seems to so totally vindicate all of their political prejudices that he justifies an even more vicious vilification of anyone who opposes their agenda. Everyone who supports free market capitalism is a rich jerk who looks down on poor people? Check. Anyone who complains about political correctness just wants to be a sexist boor? Check. Anyone who talks hawkishly about Islamic terrorism must be driven by a neurotic need to prove his masculinity? Check. Anyone who doesn’t sign up for the latest iteration of the “diversity” agenda must harbor some kind of implicit sympathy for white nationalists? Yeah, well, check.

“Family-Friendly” Islam Comes to Europe

August 22, 2017 (TurningPointProject) – “If you want to see the face of Europe in 100 years, barring a miracle, look to the faces of young Muslim immigrants.” Thus said Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput at a recent Napa Institute conference.

“Islam has a future because Islam believes in children,” he said. “Without a transcendent faith that makes life worth living, there’s no reason to bear children.”

Let’s stop right there for a bit of analysis. The first thing that merits scrutiny is the timeline. One hundred years from now is 2117. Most of us won’t be around then, so for many the matter will seem less urgent than, perhaps, Archbishop Chaput meant it to be seen. A number of observers of the European scene—Thilo Sarrazin, Douglas Murray, Bruce Bawer, and Mark Steyn—project that large parts of Europe will be Islamic within three or four decades. And if you were to wander by mistake into the no-go zones that surround Paris, you would think that the “faces of young Muslim immigrants” is already the face of Europe.

The Terrorists of the Left

Can the Justice Department do something about Antifa and Black Lives Matter and their assault on free speech?

At Whitehouse.org, there’s a petition with over 110,000 names demanding that the federal government declare Antifa to be a terrorist organization.

That’s not a terrible idea, of course; if you’ve followed the antics of Antifa and the rioting and violence they’ve involved themselves in, you might well think of the current definition of domestic terrorism in federal law. That is action which…

“(A) involve(s) acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear(s) to be intended — (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur(s) primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.”

In Britain, They’re Still Ignoring the Islamic Roots of ‘Grooming’ Gangs

A few years ago, when the news reached the public that Muslim “sex grooming gangs,” for over two decades, had been systematically engaged in the mass rape of non-Muslim girls in the English city of Rotherham – and that local police and other government authorities had known about these atrocities for a long time but had said and done nothing for fear of being considered bigots – one thing seemed all but certain: this couldn’t just be going on in Rotherham.

It wasn’t.
