Two well-known columnists — Ben Shapiro and Walter Williams — criticize the left’s love affair with Islam this week. In his column, Shapiro says that the left aligns with Islam because both want to destroy western civilization. Williams defends the west’s values against those on the left who claim all cultures are equally valid, and he points to slavery, female genital mutilation, anti-Semitism, the stoning of women and the murder of homosexuals in Islamic countries as proof.
Both men warn that multiculturalism is a threat to the west.
That’s true, but it’s important to understand why multiculturalism has become so destructive.
If the only justification for sky-high immigration is it’s “good for the economy”, it is a policy fundamentally flawed. Judged through the prism of existing citizens’ interests, there is no economic case that can justify the transformative changes current policies are inflicting
More women are buying guns than ever before, so much so that media outlets have noticed and are attempting to get at the reasons for the uptick. But none of the stats on firearms purchases have alarmed leftists more than those surrounding black women.
Black women are buying guns, getting trained on them, and being really open about it. Just this week, the Associated Press profiled three such women, all of them black, and proudly boasting of newly acquired guns.
So where are the science organizations that should be supporting him? Communing with their shoes?

Take note that the new approach to intellectual freedom does not permit anyone to just mind their own business. Even silence can be violence. Bari Weiss quotes social psychologist Jonathan Haidt at the Wall Street Journal:
“People older than 30 think that ‘violence’ generally involves some sort of physical threat or harm. But as students are using the word today, ‘violence’ is words that have a negative effect on members of the sacred victim groups. And so even silence can be violence.” It follows that if offensive speech is “violence,” then actual violence can be a form of self-defence.”
Indeed, self-defense is often the precise justification for the riots: self-defense against a perceived threatening atmosphere.
The student censors and rioters are generally at peace with themselves, as befits those who follow faithfully in their teachers’ footsteps. More.
Either do something or suck it up. Don’t think you will live in peace if no one else does.
Like we have been saying for some time, the guns are facing the wrong way. The enemy isn’t people who seek learned disputes about the nature of life, the universe, or reality. It is roaming thugs, educated chock full of ignorant grievance and self-importance and – more important – the profs who egg them on. And they now control at least one system in which a scientist hopes to work. If they win, they’ll soon control a lot more systems.

Nature: Stuck with a battle it dare not fight, even for the soul of science. Excuse me guys but, as in so many looming strategic disasters, the guns are facing the wrong way.
When I lived in Minneapolis, it was a welcoming town filled with hardworking, honest people with family values. Braving extreme heat, politicians attended the State Fair, shook hands, kissed babies, and ate walleyed pike. We used to stroll around Lake Minnetonka and talk about the local news, how many mosquitos were biting, and how the Minnesota Twins baseball team fared that year. Minnesotans made me feel like family and welcomed me for a home-cooked meal. But according to former FBI agent John Guandolo, life in the Twin Cities is not what it used to be.
The ban on transgender service that President Trump reaffirmed was there for eight years under Obama. It was there in his first term and his second term. And the media said nothing.
Only in the summer of last year did the ban technically end. And, in practice, it remained in force. All the while there was no angry clamor about the suffering of potential recruits who couldn’t enlist. Those who are fuming with outrage now had hypocritically remained silent. Obama had done it. So it must be good.
New K-12 school guidelines in Minnesota are mandating public schools to “segregate” students who object to transgender locker rooms and bathrooms to foster inclusion of “gender nonconforming” and transgender people.
Last week, the Minnesota Department of Education advisory council approved a new gender toolkit aimed at protecting and including transgender students in the state’s public education system.
The country’s top immigration enforcement officer says he is looking into charging sanctuary city leaders with violating federal anti-smuggling laws because he is fed up with local officials putting their communities and his officers at risk by releasing illegal immigrants from jail.
Thomas Homan, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also told Americans to expect more work site enforcement targeting unscrupulous employers and more 287(g) agreements with willing police and sheriff’s departments that want to help get illegal immigrants off their streets. Eventually, he said, ICE will break the deportation records of 409,849 migrants set in 2012 under President Obama.
“I think 409,000 is a stretch this year, but if [the Justice Department] keeps going in the direction they’re going in, if we continue to expand our operational footprint, I think we’re going to get there,” he told The Washington Times. “Our interior arrests will go up. They’re going to top last year’s for sure.”
A woman in Sweden claims that she was denied service at a local Somalian-owned shop because she was not wearing an Islamic headscarf, and remarked she felt like she was back in her home country of Iran.
Not to worry, lots of “Sustainable Green Jobs” are on the way. Right, you ignorant lying Bitch?
TORONTO – Loblaw has added its voice to the companies who suggest that minimum wage increases may wind up hurting, rather than helping, some workers.
Loblaw Companies Ltd. said Wednesday that changes to the minimum wage in Ontario and Alberta will increase their labour expenses by $190 million in 2018.
How to make up that loss?
Loblaw chairman and CEO Galen G. Weston said the company would move to save money by, “increasingly digitizing manual invoice jobs and rolling out more self-checkouts at its Shoppers Drug Mart locations.”
In other words, via technology — and savings achieved through technology usually involves job cuts.
Why do Muslims insist on being inferior? Why are they refusing to see themselves as equals? They’re allowed to call for the destruction of others, publish anti-Semitic cartoons and attach electronic bracelets to every Mecca pilgrim, but when others do so, it’s ‘an offense to Muslim honor.’
