These Children Will Murder Our Children

Reimporting Islamic savages who left of their own accord to establish a caliphate in the ME must not be allowed to return under any circumstances. This is a huge betrayal of the Australian public by the Turncoat gov’t. It is nothing short of cynicism and contempt for the taxpayer to declare that “security (comes) first, but welfare of IS fighters’ children will be managed”.


Former Army Ranger Is The Only Steelers Player To Stand For The National Anthem

Pittsburgh Steelers Left Tackle Alejandro Villanueva was the only player on his team to stand for the national anthem — he’s also a highly-decorated U.S. military veteran.

Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin, announced on Sunday that his team was taking an unprecedented step in protesting the national anthem by staying in the locker room to “remove ourselves from the circumstances.”

The decision by Tomlin didn’t sit well with Villanueva, who decided to defy his teammates by being present and standing during the national anthem.


Evergreen State allegedly considers moderating ‘toxic’ email discussions

The president of Evergreen State College recently asked employees to halt their “email exchanges which expose every staff and faculty member to toxic expressions of personal opinion,” and instead “listen to each other in new ways” when they disagree.

One option that is allegedly being discussed to accomplish this: administrative oversight of the email distribution lists for faculty and staff.


“Some of the words of the national anthem are white supremacist.”

A quick google got me to “Star-Spangled Bigotry: The Hidden Racist History of the National Anthem” at The Root, which I read and puzzled over. There’s a line in the third verse, “No refuge could save the hireling and slave,” which The Root says exults at the idea of Americans killing freed slaves who were fighting with the British in the War of 1812. “‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ is as much a patriotic song as it is a diss track to black people who had the audacity to fight for their freedom.”


UN report on Canada to address anti-Black racism

The U.N. Human Rights Council is set to discuss a report on issues affecting African-Canadians that makes recommendations to the federal government, including that it apologize for slavery and consider providing reparations for historical injustices.

A UN working group will submit its final report on the human rights situation of people of African descent in Canada to the council Monday based on its consultations with government officials and interest groups during an October 2016 mission to Ottawa, Toronto, Halifax and Montreal.

The report says anti-Black racism “lies at the core” of many Canadian institutions, contributing to inequities in health, housing, education and employment as well as the overrepresentation of African-Canadians in the criminal justice system.

Richard Littlejohn: So Who Did Plant The London Tube Bomb?

As the investigation into the Parsons Green Tube bombing enters its second week, police are still trying to establish who was behind this latest terror attack.

No, it wasn’t those pesky Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists again, or Far Right extremists, or the provisional wing of Ukip, trying to stir up hatred against immigrants after the Brexit vote.

So who was it? Go on, have a guess.

Don’t empower U.S. border guards on Canadian soil

As is so often the case, an important policy change that could affect Canadians in a direct and personal way has been given scant coverage — and negligible criticism — in the news media.

One would hope that a ceding of national sovereignty and the subjecting of Canadian citizens to potential arrest and physical violation by a foreign power operating within our borders would engender some pushback — or at least discussion — but here we are.
