Gov. Cuomo Lawyer Shot In Head Because: “The West Indian Day Parade Has Always Been A Problem”

Celebrating and Demonstrating A Culture of Third-World Savagery in the Streets of NYC

More failures of Western Immigration policy. In many instances their grandparents came here 60+ years ago (or more) and they are now generationally mired in crime, violence, ignorance and poverty, but mostly violence.

A lawyer who works for Gov. Cuomo was critically wounded when a gunman began “spraying” into a crowd of revelers on a Brooklyn street hours before the start of the West Indian Day Parade, the victim’s devastated brother said.

Carey Gabay, 43, the first deputy general counsel at Empire State Development, was shot in the head on Bedford Ave. and Sullivan Pl. in Crown Heights about 3:41 a.m. Monday while attempting to take cover from the gunfire with his brother, police sources said.

He was on life support at Kings County Hospital where doctors were preparing to harvest his organs Monday afternoon, a high-ranking police source said.

A family spokesman said doctors were doing additional testing on Gabay.

“He was caught in gunfire that he had nothing to do with. And there is nothing we can do, nothing the doctors can do, but pray,” Gov. Cuomo said after visiting Gabay’s bedside. “It is a personal, painful reminder of gun violence. And it has to stop. It just has to stop.”

Cuomo was deeply troubled by the tragedy.

“It is so painful, so unnecessary, so sad,” he said before marching in the parade.

“Taylor Swift Is Dreaming Of A Very White Africa” While The Grievance Mongers at NPR Lose Their Minds

 

I swear, the left just keeps getting more and more crazy.

NPR wants to fan some flames of white-guilt outrage so they bring in TWO “authentic” Africans to voice their totally “authentic” (read: feigned for money) outrage over colonialism or something… because… BECAUSE WHITE PEOPLE SUCK!!!!!!!

The two “Africans” who wrote this steaming pile of crap and even NPR get savaged in the comments.

I swear this will be the first and last time I post a Taylor Swift video, probably.

Russian propaganda site: FBI Uses National Security as Excuse to Suppress Muslim-Americans

The FBI has upped its internet surveillance of Muslim-Americans under the pretext of preventing potential homegrown terrorism, Arab-American Political Action Committee (AAPAC) founder Osama Siblani told Sputnik.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The FBI is making an effort to “evilize” Islam, Siblani explained, by implying that Muslim-Americans are killers.

“Of course they do [place restrictions on Muslim-Americans] all the time, like putting new laws and regulations,” Siblani said on Thursday. “Right now they are putting too much emphasis on the internet.”

In light of allegations about terrorist attacks being carried out in the United States, the US government is stripping Muslims of their rights as US citizens, Siblani claimed…


Wikipedia: “Sputnik is an international multimedia news service launched on 10 November 2014 by Rossiya Segodnya, an agency wholly owned and operated by the Russian government, which was created by a Decree of the President of Russia on 9 December 2013.”

Pakistan op-ed: China can mistreat Muslims, but others can’t?

Scene from China: The imams are being forced to dance, fasting has been banned, women cannot wear veils and growing beards can land you in trouble.

Since childhood, we have grown up listening, reading and watching the tales of Pak-China friendship. We were told that Pak-China friendship is ‘sweeter than the sweetest honey’, higher than the Himalayas and deeper than the seas.

We were continuously reminded that Israel, USA and India are enemies of Pakistan, Islam and Muslims and they would take any step to extinguish Muslims from the face of earth. Our curriculum, television channels, newspapers and mullahs propagated the same at every occasion. Every other day, we witness rallies and protests condemning these countries for their treatment of Muslims. If an Indian, US or Israeli somehow slaps a Muslim, even that becomes the world’s most important issue for us and the ghairat (honour) of Muslims – especially Pakistanis – lights up.

All sects and people from all ages start condemning the horrific incident and demand that the government cuts off all diplomatic ties with that particular country.

However, we have never witnessed this in case of China – a country that has been given indemnity by us. The treatment of Muslims by the Chinese government largely borders on cruelty but none of the Pakistanis dare to speak a single word against it…

Iranian cleric: Ban ‘Islamophobic’ video games to stop radicalisation

A senior Iranian cleric who acted as a peace broker over the Salman Rushdie affair has said that Britain should outlaw “Islamophobic” films and video games if it wants to prevent its Muslim youngsters becoming radicalised…

…In an interview with The Telegraph, Dr Safavi said that no young Muslim should try to join Isil, which he denounced as a “terrorist” organisation.

But he insisted that one of the motivations for those who did so was a sense of “discrimination’ in which films and video games were allowed to promote “Islamophobia”.

He did not mention specific examples, but recent films such as “American Sniper”, about the life of a US marksman in Iraq, have been accused inciting hatred against Muslims. Similar complaints have been made against video games such as Call of Duty, which feature scenarios closely based on coalition military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“In the Western media be it in films, games or news, Muslims and Islam are constantly associated with terrorism, violence and backwardness, they are constantly portrayed as the “other” to the white European or American and in constant conflict with it,” said Dr Safavi…


Let’s tell lies to make the Muslims feel better. Great solution. Very Islamic, though.

40-Days A Slave: The Journey of an American Bubble Headed Idiot

White Girl Hijab Solidarity

Jessey Eagan

The video linked at the bottom is only a little over two and a half minutes out of your life, so it’s not as if I’m asking you to participate in snake handling or some other kind of “interfaith dialog”. Your payoffs will be manifest, but the biggies occur at the 5-second mark (picture of her and her family), and then the slot machine bells and whistles go off to the sound off falling coins at exactly the 1:06 mark when they are interviewing her Muslim “friend” about as to if she would reciprocate.

Oh yeah baby! You will just have to watch.

“Jessey Eagan is a Christian and a mother of two, who works as a children’s director at Imago Dei Church in Peoria, Illinois. This year during Lent, she decided to wear a hijab. She kept a diary of her experience in a blog called #40DaysOfHijab, which is sparkling a debate both in the Christian and Muslim community.

“I wanted to put myself in someone else’s shoes”, says Eagan who hopes her practice of solidarity and empathy with the Muslim community will foster interfaith dialogue.”

Extra linkage in case the embedded video goes all wonky, which it seems to have done immediately.

Russian president accuses Western security services of deliberately trying to destabilise the country before elections

President Vladimir Putin has accused Western spies of plotting to undermine his rule and trying to ‘destabilise’ Russia before the elections.

Public organisations are being used by Western security services to achieve their own goals, the Russian president said at a meeting of the Federal Security Service earlier today.

He vowed that Russia would stand firm in the face of what he described as attempts to isolate the country politically and economically following the Ukrainian crisis.

In the speech he said: ‘The attempts by Western security services to use public, non-governmental organisations and non-political groups for their own benefit, mostly to discredit the authorities and destabilise the situation in Russia, have not stopped.

‘Actions are being planned for the time before the election campaigns in 2016 and 2018’…

Op-ed by German writer at NYT: A corroding skepticism is undermining the West

Consider the following sentences. First: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

And second: “I call … upon Russia to use its considerable influence over separatist leaders to stop any form of military, political or financial support. … Those responsible for the escalation must stop their hostile actions and live up to their commitments.”

The first was spoken by John F. Kennedy in his 1961 Inaugural Address. The second came from the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, after Russian-backed rebels shelled the Ukrainian city of Mariupol last month, killing 30 people. Kennedy’s sentence is a statement of Western self-confidence. Ms. Mogherini’s is shot through with self-doubt. The 1961 sentence rings with moral certainty; the 2015 one is a nod to legal provisions, cautious even by the standards of modern diplomacy. There is a dangerous side to this new self-restraint. Just how hollow and cold, I ask myself, has the West become?…

Turkey: Janissary chases Santa Claus out of town in symbolical anti-New Year’s Eve celebration act

Amid increasing anger at official and popular levels at the supposed Christian aspects of New Year’s celebrations in Turkey, members of the far-right Great Unity Party (BBP) symbolically ran Santa out of town Dec. 31 in the northwestern province of Bolu.

In a skit performed on the city’s central İzzet Baysal Avenue, Santa began distributing gifts to passersby, prompting the “sultan” – who happened to chance upon the scene – to ask his vizier what was occurring. After being informed, the sultan shouted, “Throw him out of the city,” precipitating a chase as Santa attempted to elude pursuing Janissaries.

“Citizens are celebrating because they’re entering a new year,” said BBP Bolu Chair Mahmut Alan. “We’re against the celebration of [new year]. We wanted to express this with a play.”


They will fit into the dhimmified European Union handily!

Why in the Left’s re-writing of history is imperialism purely a Western tradition?

There is a deep and enduring lie at the heart of the ideological Left’s agenda. The lie is that imperialism (and with it, racism) is something unique, and uniquely evil, to the Western tradition. The Left should read some history

There’s a particularly ludicrous piece in the Guardian today about Prince Harry’s photograph of a Losotho herdsman in traditional dress. It is described by the author of the piece as “a specious salmagundi of complacent assumptions and frightening arrogance.”

Here’s the offending photo (shown above).

“It may seem harsh,” says columnist Jonathan Jones, “to accuse a young man who is seen here taking a sensitive portrait of one of the people helped by his charity of posing like a Victorian imperial monarch next to a colonial inferior. But that iconography is undeniably present.”

Oh, for goodness sake. But leaving aside the general idiocy of the complaint, there is a deep and enduring lie at the heart of it that is central to the prejudices of the ideological Left. The lie is that imperialism (and with it, racism) is something unique, and uniquely evil, to the Western tradition…


There is a list of well-known non-Western empires at the link.

Feminisim as an imperialist tool

In a recent CNN interview, religion scholar Reza Aslan was asked by journalist Alisyn Camerota if Islam is violent given the “primitive treatment in Muslim countries of women and other minorities.”

Aslan responded by stating that the conditions for women in Muslim majority countries vary.

While women cannot drive in Saudi Arabia, elsewhere in various Muslim majority countries, women have been elected heads of states 7 times…

How is it that people like Camerota and Lemon, who very likely have never travelled to “free and open” Turkey, Lebanon or Bangladesh, or read the scholarship on women’s rights struggles in Morocco, Iran and Egypt, seem to know with complete certainty that women are treated “primitively” in “Muslim countries”?

On what basis does Lemon believe that he has the authority to call Aslan out for supposed dishonesty?…

The answer lies in a ubiquitous, taken-for-granted ideological framework that has been developed over two centuries in the West.

This framework, referred to by scholars as colonial feminism, is based on the appropriation of women’s rights in the service of empire…

Putin compares West with Adolf Hitler in desire to subjugate Russia, says Crimea is a ‘holy site’ for Russians, equivalent to the Temple Mount for Jews

Vladimir Putin excoriated the West in a speech on Thursday, comparing his foreign opponents to Adolf Hitler in their desire to destroy Russia while reminding foes that his armed forces were “polite but menacing”.

Speaking at the Kremlin in his annual address to parliament, Russia’s president defended his decision to annexe Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in the spring, saying that it was a place as sacred to Russians as holy sites in Jerusalem for Jews or Muslims.

He said that Russia faced a threat to its very existence from western states and accused the United States of manipulating Russia’s neighbours – in particular, Ukraine – in an attempt to subordinate Moscow to Washington’s will.

Karen Armstrong is wrong, wrong, wrong on Bill Maher

Why is Karen Armstrong famous?… If you don’t listen to National Public Radio or watch TED, you might not know who Karen Armstrong is.

Left-leaning media regularly trot out Armstrong to reassure the masses that Islam is a religion of peace and that Christianity and the West are responsible for the world’s woes…

…On November 23, 2014, Salon published an article with this lengthy title, “Karen Armstrong on Sam Harris and Bill Maher: ‘It Fills Me With Despair, Because This Is The Sort Of Talk That Led To The Concentration Camps'”

You really don’t have to read the rest of the article after that rather clunky and alarmist headline, now, do you?…

Everybody knows what the allusion to “Sam Harris and Bill Maher” is all about.

On September 26, 2014, on his HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Maher tweaked his fellow liberals. Liberals rant and rave about sexism, he said, as long as the accused are Republican Christians…

…Salon asked Armstrong about the October 3 episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Armstrong responded “It fills me with despair, because this is the sort of talk that led to the concentration camps in Europe.”

Salon asked “Is Islamophobia today comparable to anti-Semitism?” and Armstrong answered that Islamophobia is “deeply enshrined in Western culture. It goes right back to the Crusades … We’ve recoiled, quite rightly, from our anti-Semitism, but we still have not recoiled from our Islamophobia”…

ISIS a creation of the West, says a Pakistani mullah

Maulana Samiul Haq

PESHAWAR: Chief of his own faction of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam Maulana Samiul Haq has accused western countries of creating Daish or Islamic State militant group and said that they are now trying to build its image in Pakistan.

Talking to reporters here at his party office on Friday, the JUI-S chief said Daish did not exist in Pakistan.

“America and its allies are trying to project Daish in Pakistan through wall chalking,” he said when asked about the militant group’s presence in the country.

“In fact America is trying to blackmail Saudi Arabia and Iran by creating Daish to establish its hegemony in the region,” said Maulana Sami who is a staunch supporter of Taliban movement in Afghanistan.

He accused the United States of protecting Daish to justify its presence in Afghanistan and achieve its other objectives.

He alleged that the US had provided protection to Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and later depicted him as a menace for the West…

Milli Gazette: The truth about why Indian Muslims aren’t ‘radicalized’

Normally I would not bother reading this site — it blatantly apologist. But sometimes it helps to see how the ‘other side’ is thinking. It turns out that the writer hates the West bitterly and accuses it of causing all the Muslims’s problems, up to and including a deliberate role in creating and arming ISIS:

…[A]nalysts are discussing the issue based on the Western mindset and their theories of violence. They are talking of Indian Muslims not getting “radicalized” as if the whole of the rest of the Muslim World is radicalized. The truth on the contrary is that even from Western points of view, which views violence as bad only if it is targeted against the West, the overwhelming majority of the Muslim countries and the overwhelming global Muslim population have not engaged in violence despite severe provocation from the forces of the globalization led by the West…

It can be easily seen that terrorism in Muslim countries is born out of anger against the West, which has continuously tried to keep its puppets in power in those countries against the wishes of the people. Terrorism has obviously been directly proportional to the Western involvement. This is true for Afghanistan, Pakistan and most Arab countries. Moreover, all the major “terrorist outfits” have been the friends of the West in the past. Al-Qaedah was a close friend when it was fighting the Russians along with Talibans.

ISIS too was a friend till it was fighting the Syrian government. Where from did ISIS get its heavy weaponry? Of course, most of it came from West or Western allies in the region. If even now, America is not launching a full-fledged onslaught on ISIS, it is simply because ISIS is expected to put pressure on Syrian regime. Till Syrian regime does not wilt under ISIS pressure, ISIS will remain a friendly enemy.

If Indian Muslims have not radicalized, it is chiefly because India has remained free of Western intervention, and Indian polity, despite its recurrent communal ups and downs, has largely remained plural in nature. If Indian Muslims ever get radicalized, it will be due to Indian issues and not the ones that interest West.

This is apparently what passes for ‘intelligent’ thinking in the Muslim world. Heaven help us.  The article has Disqus commenting and has received several negative reviews.

But he may be reflecting how the average man on the street thinks.  In that case, any intervention at all should be avoided.  We cannot cure them of crackpottery.  I wonder where he lives?  I bet he lives somewhere in the West himself.  Time to add ‘Decline & Fall’ to the tags.
