No doubt it would be Islamophobic, racist, xenophobic, ethnocentric, etc., etc., etc. to make fun of Islamic State savages, so let’s let the Kurds do it. After all, they are the ones doing most of the fighting against ISIS, so why not let them handle the parodies too?

Our nation’s capital is splendidly diverse, proudly featuring a minority white population. Just don’t try opening a business there:
A large group of juveniles robbed a designer store in Georgetown Tuesday evening and stole $13,000 worth of items, according to D.C. Police.
The incident happened just before 6 p.m. at the Diesel store in the 3000 block of M Street NW. More than 20 people, police said, went into the store and grabbed several items off the racks, according to a police report. They stole four leather jackets, costing about $800, and an additional $12,000 worth of merchandise. …
Police described the suspects only as juveniles.
As most readers are probably aware, that means they were persons of politically preferred pigmentation.
The incident comes after a group of merchants in Georgetown ended its use of a private messaging service that many retailers, residents and police officers had used to talk about people they thought were suspicious. There were concerns that the service was being used to racially profile people.
Drop your defenses and you will be rewarded appropriately.
Joe Sternlieb, chief executive of the Georgetown business group, had said there were concerns that the app could be used to violate shoppers’ “civil rights and individual dignity.”
Much better to let them steal $13,000 worth of merchandise than to violate the alleged dignity of looters.
More DC diversity:
Several black teenagers approached a woman in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington Monday, shortly after she secured her baby in her car, and smashed out her windows with a large rock.
The incident began around noon when the woman picked her daughter up from music class. She later gave a detailed first person account of what happened on a neighborhood listserv.
She had just strapped her child in the car and was looking for snacks in her diaper bag when she looked up and saw a group of teenagers rushing up on her and trying to surround her car.
According to the woman, she frantically locked and closed the car door and ran to the driver’s side and safely locked herself in the car. The door on the other side of the car was still unlocked, but she was able to hop over into the other seat and lock it as well.
“By some miracle I was able to jump into the other side of the car, again locking it behind me and evade one of the teens as he tried to get into the car,” she wrote.
As the woman tried to pull her car away from the teenagers, one of them jumped on top of the car and smashed a large rock through the car’s sun roof.
A report from Metropolitan Police Commander Melvin Gresham confirmed the story Tuesday night, saying “one of the subjects jumped on the running board of the victim’s vehicle and smashed the window of the vehicle’s sunroof with a large rock.”
Georgetown is the nicest part of Washington. But the Black Lives Matter mentality isn’t constrained to ghettoes and college campuses. If civilization doesn’t start defending itself, soon there will be no escape from it anywhere.

When the facts do not support allowing expansionist Islam to sink its roots into our country, the media simply lies through its teeth:
After the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris … many news sources claimed that not a single refugee had been charged with terrorism in the U.S. since the attacks on 9/11, but the assertion does not stand up to scrutiny.
The noted publication The Economist proclaimed: “750,000 refugees have been resettled in America since 9/11; Not one has been arrested on domestic terrorism charges.”
In fact, several refugees have been convicted in high-profile terrorism plots, and several more were “asylees” — people allowed to stay in the U.S. for the same reasons as refugees, but who do not go through the same screening process. In one case, two Iraqi refugees in Kentucky were convicted after it turned out they had used IEDs to attack U.S. soldiers in Iraq and were plotting other attacks. …
A Department of Justice report noted that one of those refugees, Waad Ramadan Alwan, left fingerprints on unexploded IEDs in Iraq and that he was sentenced to 40 years in prison after he “pleaded guilty to conspiring to kill U.S. nationals abroad; conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction (explosives) against U.S. nationals abroad; distributing information on the manufacture and use of IEDs; attempting to provide material support to terrorists and to [Al Qaeda in Iraq] and conspiring to transfer, possess and export Stinger missiles.”
His [co-]conspirator, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, was also let in through the refugee program and is now serving a life sentence. …
In another recent case, an Uzbek refugee in Idaho was found guilty of conspiracy and attempting to support a terrorist organization, after he had allegedly been stockpiling explosives. …
Other high-profile terrorists entered the U.S. first and then applied for asylum, which can be granted to people who “meet the definition of refugee,” according to the government’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
That includes the Boston marathon bombers, who came from Chechnya and were granted asylum in the U.S. before killing three and injuring more than 250 people.
Members of the “Fort Dix 6,” who were convicted of conspiracy to murder U.S. military personnel, also entered seeking asylum; they were never granted it, but were never removed from the country, either.
If you want to see a much longer list, allow Obama, Shrillary, et al. to import as many Muslims as they want, then sit back and wait a few years. The list will start to look like this one. Not that the media or the government will acknowledge it.

Bit by bit, every aspect of society that does not meet with the approval of black racial solipsists will be deleted. It isn’t just historical figures retroactively deemed not to be politically correct. Even artwork has to go:
In 1934, Ann Rice O’Hanlon painted a fresco — then the largest one ever painted by a woman — in the University of Kentucky’s Memorial Hall. Ever since, thousands of students have walked past it on their way to and from various events each semester. Some have been oblivious to the work, which depicts Kentucky’s history, while others have admired it and considered it an outstanding example of the Depression-era Public Works of Art program, which paid for the fresco.
Being painted by a woman is not sufficient to protect the artwork from the depredations of the P.C. Taliban.
Many black students over the years have noticed the mural, which offers a version of history that includes black people working in tobacco fields, black musicians performing for a group of white people and a Native American holding a tomahawk. As campus protests over issues of race have spread in recent weeks, black students at Kentucky held a meeting with President Eli Capilouto and talked about how the fresco hurt them by relegating black people to roles as slaves or servants, without portraying the cruelty of slavery and Jim Crow. On Monday, Capilouto announced his agreement that the mural’s location is inappropriate.
A more fitting location would be somewhere no one can see it, where it can be left until forgotten, then quietly destroyed along with the rest of our culture.
In the meantime…
While moving the fresco to a more appropriate location will take time, Capilouto said in an online essay released by the university, Kentucky will cover up the 45-by-8-foot fresco for now and add a sign explaining why the mural is obscured.
Capilouto admits that the fresco is considered “to be one of the most important artworks of its kind in the commonwealth,” as if that matters. Minority students want it gone, and they always get their way, because they are oppressed.
Whether the fresco accurately depicts the era when it was painted is irrelevant also. History is racist and must be eradicated.
We should send representative artifacts of American civilization to Russia, so that they might be preserved in museums. Otherwise the future will have no idea who we were.

Remember the Austrian teens Samra Kesinovic and Sabina Selimovic, who were duped by propaganda at the local mosque to run off and join ISIS? At last word they were “married, pregnant and living in the ISIS-controlled city of Raqqa.” We now have an update:
17-year-old Samra and her friend, 15-year-old Sabina, travelled to Syria together last year to join Isis – both are now believed to be dead.
Reports in the Österreich and Kronen Zeitung tabloids cite ‘insider’ sources who say Samra was beaten to death but the interior and foreign ministries have not confirmed this.
Bureaucrats are offering no comment, possibly to avoid saying anything Islamophobic, which could end their careers.
The report in the Kronen Zeitung quotes a Tunisian woman who also travelled to Syria to join the jihadists last year but later escaped and returned home. She told the newspaper that she lived with Samra and Sabina in Raqqa.
Rumours about the girls’ fate also circulated late last year, with an Israeli expert from the UN saying that one had been killed fighting in Syria and the other had disappeared.
Photos of both girls appeared on social networking sites, with them holding Kalashnikov rifles and surrounded by armed men – images which Austrian police said were meant to recruit young girls to join Isis.
This is why Islamophobia, as Islamophile liberals call ideological resistance to jihad, is so important. ISIS is winning the propaganda war because unlike liberal democracies it believes in itself, but also because there is not enough rhetorical pushback from people who would rather not turn the earth into hell as a tribute to the Devil, I mean Allah.

Obama doesn’t just help ISIS by pulling punches, nor did he help create it only by prematurely withdrawing US troops from Iraq. His assistance to the world’s most unequivocally evil organization has been much more proactive. From last May:
President Barack Obama publicly claims to be assisting in the fight against ISIS, but documents obtained by the conservative government watchdog group Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act confirm that the Obama administration worked with other Persian Gulf nations as well as Turkey, in an effort to train and aid radical Islamist groups in their quest to overthrow the Assad regime in Syria. The documents show the Obama administration believed the establishment of an Islamic state in eastern Syria would help to isolate Assad.
Any Obama fans want to explain how Assad is more of a threat to us than ISIS?
Judicial Watch obtained more than 100 pages of classified documents from the US Department of Defense and State Department through a federal lawsuit. According to one of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents, the US and its allies, along with several Persian Gulf countries and Turkey, explored “the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality (Islamic State) in eastern Syria” to affect their policies in the region.
A DIA report dated August 12, 2012 said, “And this is exactly what the supporting powers to the (Syrian) opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.” The powers supporting the opposition to Assad mentioned in the document include the United States, Turkey, and several Persian Gulf nations.
ISIS has been viewed as a “strategic asset” to be used to remove Assad from power, presumably so that he can be replaced by rabidly anti-Western radical Islamists more to the liking of Obama and his likeminded pal Erdogan.
Obama’s insistence on calling it ISIL instead of ISIS or Islamic State like everyone else suggests that it could also be viewed as a strategic asset to be used against Israel. The L is for Levant; Israel is part of the Levant.
The DIA tried to warn Obama that ISIS could become a major problem…
In spite of this warning, the Obama administration worked with Turkey’s state intelligence agency to ship arms from the Port of Benghazi in Libya into parts of eastern Syria that were under the control of ISIS and other radical Islamist groups.
This could shed some light on what Ambassador Chris Stevens was doing at the consulate in Benghazi, why it was chosen for the terror attack, why the Regime refused to defend it both before and during the attack, and why the entire debacle remains shrouded in secrecy to this day.
Whether Obama’s foreign policy is deliberately treasonous as I believe or merely incompetent beyond belief is for future historians to determine. For now we need to focus on it not causing us to stumble into World War III.

There are belligerent black identity groups on every campus in the country. They have been running riot, spreading inflammatory lies, disrupting students who try to study, deposing college presidents, erasing important historical figures, et cetera. What would happen if whites tried to defend their interests by establishing groups of their own?
Silly question, right? Everyone knows that whites are not allowed to have interests; the very notion is racist. Most assume that such a group could only be a hoax. Naturally it would be quickly suppressed:
A Facebook page calling itself the “UC Berkeley White Student Union” has been taken down by the social network.
Students first spotted the page Friday. The site claimed the goal was to “unapologetically provide a safe space for white students to air their true feelings…” about the “challenges European-American students on college campuses face.”
A “minority student” at Berserkeley named Nikola Kendis expresses amazement that whites should feel a need to defend their interests, thoughtfully commenting, “Like, what?”
Chancellor Nicholas Dirks responded with a statement on Monday, saying, “While UC Berkeley honors First Amendment rights, we do not endorse this attempt to create conflict and make light of the efforts of activists locally and nationally.”
The reference is apparently to Black Lives Matter thugs, and the looters and rioters in diverse hellholes like Ferguson and Baltimore.
Across the country from Berserkeley, at comparably moonbatty New York University:
A so-called “NYU White Student Union” launched Friday as a platform to “celebrate whiteness” and members of “European descent” turned out to be a hoax, but it didn’t stop people from finding it offensive. …
“It’s totally inappropriate and insensitive given the conversations going on right now,” international relations student Prem Cohly told the Daily News on Monday. “Racism is still very real, even here in New York City. There’s such a history of white supremacy that this is troubling.”
Whites are so supreme that the idea of allowing whites to have a union horrifies the vociferously antiwhite establishment. It is the 21st century equivalent of allowing slaves to learn how to read.
“It’s not OK. It’s not right,” graduate student Moria Sutherland said. “We have an obligation as a community and a school to be open to diversity and all people. I’m tired of all the hate in the world.”
The very idea of white people being allowed a voice too is blasphemous to those who are “open to diversity.” Being open to all people means not being open to whites. Being tired of hate means hating whites.
The selection of student interviews reflects the media’s reaction. This was shared by educrats, who rushed to assure everyone that it’s all a joke:
“There is no such organization as this at NYU, the Facebook page is using NYU’s logo illegally and without permission, and we have contacted Facebook to demand the NYU logo be removed,” NYU Director of Public Affairs Matt Nagel said in a statement to The News on Monday. “We reject — and we call on others to reject — efforts such as this to derail or distort candid, thoughtful discourse on race.”
Not just a joke, according the Daily Snooze, but a “sick joke”:
Some social media users pointed to a 4Chan post from Sunday as proof the page might be a sick joke. The anonymous post calls for Internet trolls to make “European students union” pages at “the most leftist colleges and universities in the western world.”
A prank isn’t the same thing as a joke — and the only thing sick about this one is the liberal establishment’s reaction.
The page says it intends no “harm” to other ethnic groups, calling itself a “community for NYU students of European descent.”
Why should that be forbidden?
Similar white student union pages have been popping up throughout the country, including at the University of Missouri, UCLA, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. That the notion that such organizations could be allowed to exist is universally regarded with incredulous horror by the authorities in both academia and the media tells you all you need to know about the actual state of racial relations.

The arrogance of our moonbat rulers is almost as conspicuous as their hostility to the core population:
The Environmental Protection Agency has given $30,000 to a Unitarian church that preaches about “white privilege” and says that America is “structurally racist.”
This is justified because the “church” also preaches lies in support of the global warming dogma that is exploited by the Regime to expand its power.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, Florida, received an “environmental justice grant” for education and training about sea level rise and climate change, the agency announced [last] Wednesday.
“EPA’s environmental justice grants help communities across the country understand and address exposure to multiple environmental harms and risks at the local level,” said Matthew Tejada, the director of the Office of Environmental Justice.
“Environmental justice” means they steal from you, give the money to their friends, and pretend it has something to do with the environment. It is only part of the moonbattery indulged in by this beneficiary of the EPA’s largesse:
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton is a “liberal religious community” that currently offers classes on “Being White,” and holds town meetings on Black Lives Matter. The church supports same-sex marriage and has a climate-change working group.
Church member Carolyn Brown wrote in the latest monthly newsletter that…
…the church’s leader, the Rev. Ms. Harris Riordan, recently led the congregation on a “privilege walk.”
Riordan recently preached a sermon called “On Being White,” where she said she wants to become a “White Ally” to combat the “systemic, structural racism” of America.
Have your pastor drop all the Jesus stuff and preach this instead. Your church too could benefit from the never-ending federal spending spree.
BTW, the EPA justified that handout of our money with this steaming load:
“EPA awarded the Environmental Justice Small Grant to the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship to create a Resilience Adaptation Community Toolkit (ReACT), to provide education and training to reduce public health risks associated with increasingly severe storms and storm surges in South Delray Beach, Fla. and the Pearl City area of Boca Raton, Fla.,” [an EPA spokesweenie] said. “The grant will be especially vital for these communities, which have been severely damaged by recent and increasingly intense hurricanes.”
No major hurricane has made landfall in the USA since Wilma in 2005. We are in the longest hurricane drought in recorded history.
But that’s only in the real world. In the world of liberal ideology inhabited by our ruling class, hurricanes are more numerous and more intense, just as predicted, as a result of insufficient taxes and regulation.

Formerly the wealthiest city in America, demographically transformed Detroit now illustrates what the last members of America’s core population have to look forward to when liberals achieve their holy grail and whites are a minority:
A 91-year-old man was beaten, then doused with gasoline before he and his home in northwest Detroit were set afire by a burglar, police said.
Paul Monchnik, a retired TV repairman, was found dead in his burning home in the 20500 block of Bentler Court around 3 a.m. Monday.
“He lived by himself; he was nearly deaf, so he lived in his own little world and got along in his own little world very comfortably,” said son Scott Monchnik, 56, who learned Monday morning of his father’s brutal death.
Unfortunately, living in our own worlds is no longer an option, as the greater world is brought down around us. But at least Mr. Monchnik had one last chance to celebrate diversity.

Just in case there is still anyone out there taking the federal government’s “scientific proof” of global warming seriously,
Veteran journalist Günter Ederer writes a piece reporting that massive alterations have been found in the NASA GISS temperature data series, citing a comprehensive analysis conducted by a leading German scientist. These results are now available to the public.
Ederer reports not long ago retired geologist and data computation expert Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert began looking at the data behind the global warming claims, and especially the datasets of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS).
Ewert painstakingly examined and tabulated the reams of archived data from 1153 stations that go back to 1881 – which NASA has publicly available – data that the UN IPCC uses to base its conclusion that man is heating the Earth’s atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. According to Ederer, what Professor Ewert found is “unbelievable”:
From the publicly available data, Ewert made an unbelievable discovery: Between the years 2010 and 2012 the data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a significant warming, especially after 1950. […] A comparison of the data from 2010 with the data of 2012 shows that NASA-GISS had altered its own datasets so that especially after WWII a clear warming appears – although it never existed.”
Ederer writes that Ewert particularly found alterations at stations in the Arctic. Professor Ewert randomly selected 120 stations from all over the world and compared the 2010 archived data to the 2012 data and found that they had been tampered to produce warming.
The old data showed regular cycles of warming and cooling over the period, even as atmospheric CO2 concentration rose from 0.03% to 0.04%. According to the original NASA datasets, Ederer writes, the mean global temperature cooled from 13.8°C in 1881 to 12.9°C in 1895. Then it rose to 14.3°C by 1905 and fell back under 12.9°C by 1920, rose to 13.9°C by 1930, fell to 13° by 1975 before rising to 14°C by 2000. By 2010 the temperature fell back to 13.2°C.
Not exactly panic inducing. But when there is no crisis to exploit, Big Government can be counted on to create one — out of thin air, if necessary. The following tactics were employed:
• Reducing the annual mean in the early phase.
• Reducing the high values in the first warming phase.
• Increasing individual values during the second warming phase.
• Suppression of the second cooling phase starting in 1995.
• Shortening the early decades of the datasets.
• With the long-term datasets, even the first century was shortened.
The original data had to be faked because it showed that the planet is currently cooling, which makes a complete mockery of liberal global warming dogma.

Due to the partisan nature of the establishment media, not all Americans are aware of these five essential ObamaCare facts:
1. Insurance companies are withdrawing in droves.
2. “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” was a brazen and cruel lie.
3. Still waiting on that $2,500 in savings Obama promised you? You’re not alone. Premiums are skyrocketing nationwide.
4. Obamacare customers say their plans are “useless” due to soaring deductibles.
5. The Obamacare “death spiral” conservatives warned about is real.
See Breitbart for details.
Don’t blame Obama’s incompetence. Like his strategy to defeat ISIS, ObamaCare was designed to fail. ObamaCare’s collapse will create another crisis that Big Government will not allow to go to waste, as it turns the ratchet notch by notch toward Soviet-style “single payer” healthcare.

Nothing could be more emblematic of homeland security under liberal rule than evicting troops from their barracks so as to house imported hordes of Islamic “refugees” from the terrorist breeding zone Syria:
Soldiers and military personnel at a Kingston, Ont. base are being asked to clear their barracks to make room for an early wave of Syrian refugees arriving in just over a week, CTV News has learned.
Multiple residences at CFB Kingston are being cleared for Nov. 30 to house the refugees, according to an internal memo obtained by CTV News.
The orders will also affect some officer cadets attending the Royal Military College, many of whom are nearing exams.
And while the memo warns of the fast-approaching deadline, it does not indicate where military personnel will be resettled.
Under the adolescent Islamophile moonbat Justin Trudeau, authorities have other priorities.
The notice comes just two days after Minister of Immigration and Refugees John McCallum reaffirmed the government’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2015. …
Earlier this month, CTV News reported details from a document entitled “Operation Syrian Refugees” that suggested up to 900 Syrian refugees a day could arrive in Toronto and Montreal from Lebanon, Jordan and possibly Turkey.
If they are coming from Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, they have already escaped the failed state in Syria, assuming they are even from Syria, so they are not refugees. But everyone knew that calling the Islamic colonists “refugees” was farcical anyway.
Among the easily foreseeable consequences of this lunatic treason are cancerous, dysfunctional, unassimilable, welfare-dependent Muslim ghettos that will soon deteriorate into no-go zones and, still more obviously, innocent Canadians dead of avoidable terror attacks.

We all know that it is generally a load of crap when Third Worlders, including welfare colonists and Muslim terrorists, claim “credible fear” in order to obtain prized refugee status. Don’t the people in charge of defending the country from foreign incursion know it? Of course they do; but they knowingly collude in the scam:
The Obama administration let hundreds of illegal immigrants stay in the U.S. even though federal authorities knew in advance that an open borders group coached them to falsely claim “credible fear” to get asylum, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The operation was part of a scam conducted by an immigrant rights organization called the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NITA), which in recent years has coordinated demonstrations along the Southwest border in Texas and Arizona. In mid-2014 the group orchestrated a racket seeking to bring 250 illegal aliens into the U.S. through the Otay Mesa Port of Entry in San Diego, California. To assure the migrants were allowed to stay in the U.S., the group had them falsely claim that they had a “credible fear” of returning to their native country. Foreigners can claim asylum under five categories, based on fear of persecution over race, religion, nationality, political opinions or membership in a specific social group
In this particular case, the DHS agency charged with guarding the border—Customs and Border Protection (CBP)—actually admits knowing about the ploy in advance but allows the illegal aliens to stay anyways.
Credible fear asylum in the U.S. has become so popular that illegal aliens are hearing about it on Facebook and federal immigration authorities are overwhelmed with applications. In the last few years the number of foreigners, including large numbers from terrorist countries, asserting credible fear to gain asylum in this country has skyrocketed.
The Cloward-Piven strategy has been applied to immigration, overloading the system. Saul Alinsky would be proud.
In the last five years the number of “credible fear” asylum applications made at the border has increased sevenfold, from less than 5,000 to more than 36,000, a former Department of Justice (DOJ) and federal immigration official told Congress during a hearing earlier this year. …
Today, the backlog of credible fear cases pending in federal immigration courts is an astounding 450,000, according to a news report published this month. This could create huge national security risks because often asylum seekers are released from custody to await a court hearing.
At the rate the country is falling apart under liberal rule, America will be lucky to exist long enough for half of these invaders to have their rubberstamp hearings, assuming that many would show up for them anyway.

MSNBC fans know all about the trails and travails of oppressed Muslim Saadiq Long. But I doubt they will ever hear his name again:
A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.
It’s a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long’s cause was being championed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.
His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed the story that Long wanted to return to his native Oklahoma from his current home in Qatar to visit his ailing mother but [temporarily] couldn’t because he was on the TSA’s no-fly list. They said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”
No doubt it did. Yet another story illustrates why Islamophobia is a good thing. You wouldn’t condemn someone for having Stepping-Out-in-Front-of-a-Bus-ophobia. Why demonize those sensible enough to keep their guard up against Islam?
On a tip from Jester.
A liberal is someone who, instead of looking for solutions to problems, looks for “root causes.” An inbred idiot liberal is someone who thinks the root cause of Islamic violence is climate change — like Prince Chucklehead:
Britain’s Prince Charles has pointed to the world’s failure to tackle climate change as a root cause of the civil war in Syria, terrorism and the consequent refugee crisis engulfing Europe. …
The prince said in an interview with Sky News, to be aired on Monday and recorded before the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, that such symptoms were a “classic case of not dealing with the problem”.
A liberal Islamophile wants to tell us all about not dealing with the problem of Islam.
“We never deal with the underlying root cause which regrettably is what we’re doing to our natural environment,” he said, noting that far greater problems lay ahead if climate change was not addressed immediately.
To those who argue that Islam has been explosively violent since its inception 1,400 years ago, Charles could reply that there has been climate change that whole time, since there has always been climate change. But imagine the befuddled look on his face if a journalist ever thinks to ask him why climate change turns only Muslims into violent sociopaths and not everyone else.
Don’t laugh too hard. Our “president” and the moonbat lined up to replace him both agree with Prince Chuckles that the chaos pouring out of Syria is caused by insufficient taxation and regulation of carbon emissions.

To be a firefighter, it helps to be a member of a privileged special interest group that is less likely to be both physically and mentally qualified for the job. But if you are unlucky enough to be a white male, you can always fake it. This story from 1988 gives an idea of how long it has been since Affirmative Action lunacy got completely out of hand:
Philip and Paul Malone are fair-haired, fair-complexioned identical twins who worked for the Boston Fire Department for 10 years. Last month both were dismissed when a state agency ruled that they had lied on their job applications: They had contended they were black.
The finding has sent shock waves through the city government, touching off charges that employees of other agencies may have misused plans designed to [benefit nonwhite workers at the expense of more qualified whites who would otherwise get the job].
Investigations were launched, on suspicion that the need for qualified firefighters had resulted in systemic fraud:
City Councillor Bruce Bolling, who called for city and state investigations, asked: “How could twins with Irish names, Caucasian features and no black identification from any perspective get into the force and stay on without collusion? Such misuse denies opportunity to people of color, for whom these plans are designed.”
Since the 1970s, fire and police departments across the state and the Boston School Department have been under federal court orders to hire enough black and Hispanic employees so the work force reflects the racial composition of the general population.
Better late than never. Philip and Paul Malone have been added to the representative Racial Impostor List:
In more recent news, from New York City:
A firefighter who was allowed to graduate the Fire Academy despite failing physical tests has already gone out on medical leave — just 10 days into the job, The Post has learned.
Probationary firefighter Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder injured herself [last] Monday while conducting a routine check of equipment at Queens’ Engine 308 in South Richmond Hill. Getting off the truck, Doirin-Holder missed a step and landed on her left foot, suffering a fracture, sources said.
Not to worry; her disability compensation will be generous in the extreme:
Doirin-Holder started another class in early 2014 but dropped out because of an injury. The FDNY then gave her a desk job and kept her on the payroll at top firefighter salary, $76,488. She made $81,376 with overtime in 2014 and entered her third class this summer.
Since she was injured on duty, she is eligible for a disability pension that would pay three-quarters of her annual salary, tax-free, if deemed unfit to return.
There is no question that she is unfit to return. Never mind about the fractured foot.
It was her second shift after a transfer from Engine 301. In training for a hazmat assignment, officers found her struggling to perform the required tasks.
Firefighters called the tripping incident embarrassing — and alarming.
