Tucker Carlson Interviews ‘Feminist’ Supporter Of Hijab

…the only thing I’m endorsing today with you and with all of your viewers is that discrimination is alive and well for women in this country.”

“Yeah, I’ve noticed, in the form of the hijab, for example, just to name one,” he shot back.

Linda Sarsour: How the progressive left tolerates intolerance

Progressives should resist certain voices in their community if they care about being perceived as enemies of racism, sexism and xenophobia. For example, it would behoove the progressive left to stop listening to Linda Sarsour. Sarsour is one of the biggest figures in feminist activism, and she embodies many of the criticisms typically made of progressives. She is so easy to criticize that she has become the darling of right-wing news outlets like Breitbart and The Daily Wire. It is a sad state of affairs when one of the four co-chairs of the 2017 Women’s March has to wonder why she is treated like an “existential threat” to the Jewish community.

Leftists and Islamists: Strange Bedfellows

It cannot be repeated enough that the Marxist-anarchist radical left Antifa and Islamic jihadists have joined forces to destroy Western civilization.  Known as the Red-Green Axis, this unlikely alliance of leftists with Islamic groups is actually a means to an end by Islamists.

Inexplicably, left-wing forces do not comprehend that they are merely one of the tools by which Islamists wish to impose a global caliphate.  In his searing documentary Killing Europe, producer Michael Hansen makes the following cogent points.

The Islamic jihadists have found willing partners in the left for a number of reasons.

British schools inspector received threats from a “mixture of Islamic extremists and the hard left” after expose

Ofsted chief received ‘venomous’ threats after raising concerns about faith schools

Ofsted’s chief inspector has told how she received threats and abuse after raising concerns about the values being promoted in some of the country’s faith schools.

Amanda Spielman said she had been the victim of some “pretty venomous stuff”, receiving “nasty tweets” and threatening emails from what she believed to be a “mixture of Islamic extremists and the hard left”.

She told The Times: “I’m not easily bruised. I don’t fall over when I see a load of nasty tweets pointed at me but there has been some pretty venomous stuff.

“I had an email, which was the most threatening one, which was along the lines of ‘We know where you live and we can get you any time we want to’.”

What if Catholics espoused what radical Islamists do?

Australia – Peaceful Islamists Protest

From our American friend John Gilmore at alphanews, reporting from India:

The Regressive Left immediately paints any criticism of Islam as racist (it is a religion, not a race but liberals only have that one, worn out card to play) and call any critic a bigot. Mind you, if Catholicism taught what Mohammed and the Koran teach, they’d condemn it in a flash. This is the hypocrisy with which we are faced and to which, fortunately, we are increasingly impervious when called bigoted. Honesty is not bigotry. More.

Reality check: True, but the “Regressive Left” are not afraid of Catholics. Catholics usually just stumble, crumble, apologize, stop going to Mass and vote for oppression.

The French left is tearing itself apart over Islam

Six months into his presidency, Emmanuel Macron looks untouchable. He has conquered the unions, and his political opponents are a shambles – none more so than the Socialists. Just how divided they are was demonstrated earlier this month when a vicious war of words erupted within the French left. The cause was Islam, an issue that has been agitating Socialists for decades. When the first Socialist president of the Fifth Republic, François Mitterrand, was elected in 1981, his government was initially a friend of Islam. As the eighties wore on though, some on the left became alarmed at the demands being made of the Republic: prayer rooms in factories and the right to pray five times a day were particular sticking points. Pierre Mauroy, who served as prime minister during this period, denounced the growing influence of Islam in the workplace, prompting the left-wing newspaper Liberation to warn that such statements were ‘the slippery slope to racism’.

For the Left, ‘Islamophobia’ Is a Much Bigger Threat Than Jihad Terror

Acid attack survivors.

Recently I spoke at Stanford University, but few people were in attendance. This was not because my appearance had aroused little interest, but because Stanford administrators and Leftist students made sure that as few people as possible heard me.

Why did they do this? Because for the academic Left and the Left in general, “Islamophobia” is a much bigger threat than jihad terror.

Left Lashes Out Against Trump’s Tweets, Does Not Question Islam

As Islam teaches Muslims do.

President Donald Trump used three tweeted videos to highlight the hostility of Islam’s ideas towards non-Muslims — prompting a huge pushback by progressives who focused on the process, not the message.

Michael Hansen on the cancelation of the movie, Killing Europe

Michael Hanson is a former Dane who returned to Europe after a 10 year absence and made a movie of what he saw of the effects of Islam on the streets of Europe. The documentary was screened by the Ottawa library staff and scheduled for view on Saturday, Nov. 25. But a threatened street protest by ANTIFA and Ottawans Against Fascism caused cancellation of the viewing.

How Leftists Aid the Jihadis’ Deadly Cause

As Robert Spencer noted, vehicular jihad has come to Manhattan, after stops in Nice, London, Edmonton and other places. The Muslim Sayfullo Saipov killed eight and wounded a dozen innocents by running them over with a rental truck, the first fatalities in that area since other jihadists crashed hijacked airliners into the World Trade Center, claiming some 3,000 lives.

That prompted cheers from Muslims living in New Jersey, also home to Sayfullo Saipov.  The jubilant jihadist, a 29-year-old Uzbek, acted on behalf of the Islamic State, which in turn is part of something much larger. Call it the Islamschluss, a global surge that should put things in perspective.

Muslimedia Wants You to Think It’s Moderate

Counting on the same naïveté that has propelled CAIR to prominence.

Coming soon to a mosque near you: Muslimedia, a forum that promises to offer “blunt debate about the way journalists cover Muslims at home and abroad.” For the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which organizes the events with the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), the forum serves as an opportunity to deceive the press and attain legitimacy for its extremist worldview.

SPJ and CAIR make for strange bedfellows. While SPJ is concerned with defending freedom of speech and pursuing ethics in journalism, CAIR was designated as a terrorist entity by the United Arab Emirates in 2014. The FBI and Justice Department suspended contact with CAIR in 2008 because of the group’s links to terrorism, and the Anti-Defamation League has labeled CAIR an anti-Semitic group with ties to terrorism.

The Latest Victim of the Campus Hate Industry

Esme Allman: Unfit to attend university.

“…Allman is a young woman who, although a student at one of the finest universities on earth, considers herself to be a multiply oppressed victim and who sees the world around her as swarming with oppressors. She has been so well-schooled in the idea that whites are always the oppressors and dark-skinned people always the victims that when she sees a fellow British subject rooting for his own nation’s side in a war against jihadists, her first and only thought is to brand him an “Islamophobe” — this, even though the enemy in that war are men who would force her into a burka or consider her, as an infidel, deserving of rape and/or death.

Western leftists need to stop supporting Islam’s regressive elements

At an Ontario writers’ group gathering last Saturday, many issues were raised by members of the audience on the rights of women in Islam, how women are treated within the different strains of Islam and how Western women can help not only in alleviating the lot of Muslim women, but also making sure that Muslim women themselves recognize that there is indeed a problem in the way orthodoxy treats them.

Out of that discussion arose a consensus on many points, and some polite disagreement.

Raw Exposure: Leftwing–Islamic Alliance Fabricated Europe’s Migration Crisis

Soros in the Balkans – The makings of a “humanitarian challenge.’

By now, we recognize fake news, dragging citizens down endless rabbit holes.

What about “deviously misleading” news, especially coverage of far away problems?

The American public has been subjected to international reporting grievously one sided — namely, left sided — forcing us to wrong-headed conclusions based on false assumptions.

An excellent case in point is the European migration crisis of 2015-2016.

A new book by Christopher Deliso, Migration, Terrorism, and the Future of a Divided Europe (Praeger, 2017), piles fact upon fact to show the massive movement of Middle Eastern and African people into Europe was no cataclysmic wartime event.

It was a deliberate and avoidable phenomenon facilitated by the Turkish government, globalists — including, prominently, George Soros and European Union (EU) leadership — and criminals. The result is a perilous ongoing security threat to the West.

Last summer, feminists defended the burkini. Will they now defend the bikini?

Why we fight.

If there was a buzzword from last summer then it was surely ‘burkini’. The media got its swimsuit in a twist over France’s decision to ban the Islamic garment from its beaches. Slow-witted Anglophone columnists – many of whom have a curious predilection for insulting the French – lapped it up and enthusiastically portrayed Islam as the victim of Gallic oppression.

Those trusty custodians of liberal values, the Guardian and the New York Times, got particularly worked up, the former declaring in an editorial that ‘women’s right to dress as they feel comfortable and fitting should be defended against those coercing them into either covering or uncovering.’ The New York Times quoted Marwan Muhammad, executive director of the Collective Against Islamophobia (an organisation which Gilles Kepel, France’s foremost expert on Islamism, has claimed is intended to create a ‘strategy of conquest’ within France). He said the appearance of the burkini was ‘good news’. ‘It means Muslim women who didn’t use to enjoy that day at the beach or at the pool are now taking part, they are socialising.’
