How Importing Vast Numbers of Potential Terrorists Fights Terrorism

There is a line between totally full of baloney and psychopathologically delusional. Barking from atop the CNN soapbox, Robert Verkaik crosses it:

I believe that Germany’s open-door refugee policy will, in the long run, help protect Germans from terrorism.

Surely, he can back up this preposterous statement, or he wouldn’t have made it. No wait — he can’t:

Rather than focus on the imagined [!!!!] links between terrorism and immigration, we should look at the long-term benefits of pursuing a plan that is helping to build stronger multi-cultural communities that can fight extremism.

In Germany, this policy is already delivering results with vital intelligence being passed by resident Muslims to the country’s domestic security service, the BND.

Importing massive numbers of Muslims reduces Muslim terrorism because occasionally some of the Muslims rat each other out. Literally, that is his argument.

There is also evidence around the case of the Berlin market investigation that community informants have played their part in warning about the threat posed by prime suspect Anis Amri before the attack.

These community informants did not prevent 12 people from being killed and a German tradition from being fast-tracked for demise when Amri hijacked a truck and drove it through a Christmas market.

Leftists are not helping their cause by making outlandish assertions that insult our intelligence. We know that not all Muslims are terrorists, or even approve of terrorism. We also know that virtually all terrorism in the West is inflicted by Muslim foreigners, Muslim immigrants, the offspring of Muslim immigrants, or losers motivated by the malevolent ideology imported by Muslim immigrants. We know that unassimilable Muslim communities spawn terrorists and provide them with a base from which to operate.

Immigrants from anywhere can be a blessing if they arrive in numbers that can be assimilated. But importing vast hordes from the Islamic world that has been waging a terror war against Western Civilization is either treasonous or insane.

Leaving the door open is not going to reduce terror, obviously.

Is Lindsay Lohan Converting to Islam?

It used to be that has-beens attempting to extend their 15 minutes would come out as gay. But that doesn’t shock anyone nowadays. Maybe this will work:

Members of the Muslim faith are welcoming Lindsay Lohan to Islam after the actress deleted her Instagram account and changed her bio on the social media site.

Over the weekend, Lohan got rid of every photo on her Instagram page, leaving nothing but her profile picture and a bio that now reads: ‘Alaikum salam.’

The Arabic greeting translates to ‘and unto you peace,’ and many took it mean that Lohan was converting to the Muslim faith.

Lindsay’s acting and singing careers have pretty much petered out, but she may still have work in the entertainment sector in her future — as an ISIS sex slave. Being an enlightened kind of gal, Lindsay surely knows where women fit in according to the Islamic scheme of things. She ought to demonstrate her sincerity by heading to Raqqa, where she might be able to improve the morale of Soldiers of Allah, provided they aren’t too picky.

If you have a strong stomach, watch Lindsay denounce her country on behalf of Islam. Whether she has actually converted or is just dabbling like a Tinseltown flake is unclear.

Son of Soros

The only good thing about ultra-left financier George Soros is that he is 86 years old and can’t work his mischief forever. Unfortunately, he will leave us with Son of Soros:

Alexander Soros, the son of liberal billionaire George Soros who acts as the managing partner for Soros Brothers Investments, has quietly emerged as a major donor to Democratic campaigns and causes. …

Alexander gave more than $4.5 million to Democratic campaign committees and political action committees in 2016, according to campaign finance records. The millions in donations from Alexander throughout the past election cycle is a sharp increase from years past.

The money appears to be going to the worst of the worst:

The Senate Majority PAC, the political action committee of former Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.), was the biggest recipient of cash from Soros’ son. Between August and November 2016, Alexander cut four checks to Reid’s leadership PAC totaling $3.5 million.

They don’t come skeevier than retired top Senate Dem Harry Reid, the guy who smugly congratulated himself on the success of his outrageous lie during the 2012 campaign that Mitt Romney did not pay taxes.

Now the Left is developing a new generation of Harry Reids, with help from zillionaire socialists like Alexander Soros.

Alexander gave $127,800 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee during the 2016 campaign cycle and added $133,400 to the Democratic National Committee Services Corp.

Alexander also contributed the maximum amount allowed ($5,400) to numerous Democratic politicians, including failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former senator Russ Feingold (D., Wis.), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), and Rep. Keith Ellison, who is in the running to lead the Democratic National Committee.

Tens of thousands were also given to numerous state Democratic parties across the country. Alexander provided checks of $10,000 to the Democratic parties of Illinois, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Nevada, Texas, Oregon, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, among other states.

The influence purchased by extreme leftists like Soros & Son helps explain why the Democrat Party has been marginalizing itself by catering to the lunatic fringe, abandoning all claim to the political center.

Dan Gainor, the vice president of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center who has extensively tracked cash from George Soros, particularly to media entities, said that Alexander could assume the role currently occupied by his father in the future.

This is good news not only for the Columbia School of Journalism and the rest of the liberal journalism establishment, but probably for militant cultural Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter, which George Soros has also been funding.

Moonbats Neuter God at Divinity Schools

What more effective place to take a cultural Marxist sledgehammer to the traditional Western concept of God than at divinity schools?

The divinity schools at Duke and Vanderbilt Universities have instructed their professors to start using more “inclusive” language when referring to God because the masculine pronouns “have served as a cornerstone of the patriarchy.”

The duty to smash the “patriarchy” is among the commandments of liberalism, which is the only religion taught at universities these days.

This year’s divinity course catalogue at Vanderbilt tells professors to give “consistent attention to the use of inclusive language, especially in relation to the Divine,” because the school “commits continuously and explicitly to include gender as an analyzed category and to mitigate sexism.”

It seems God is sexist. Fortunately, this can be mitigated through Orwellian linguistic techniques.

Vanderbilt lets the professor decide what pronouns God should get. But…

…if we are talking about the Christian God, every single reference to Him in the Bible uses a masculine pronoun . . . which kind of gives you the vibe that Christians have decided that their god is a dude. The fact is, teaching anything else would be giving inaccurate information — which is what makes Duke’s particular guidelines even more absurd. …

Duke’s guidelines suggest avoiding gender specific pronouns when discussing Him and suggest using “God” and “Godself” instead.

Hopefully someone is compiling an English–Liberalese dictionary, for when moonbats diverge so far from the rest of humanity that we can no longer comprehend their gibbering. “Godself” should be listed as Liberalese for “God.”

When it comes to moonbattery, nothing is sacred — especially not what really is sacred.

Greatest Show on Earth Is Over

Last May, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus used elephants in its show for the last time, bowing to relentless pressure from animal rights militants. This May, the circus itself will perform its swan song. Moonbats are delighted to have helped bury another piece of Americana:

The Humane Society of the United States described itself as “long a bitter adversary of Feld Entertainment and Ringling Bros.” in its response to the news. In 2014, Feld Entertainment won $25.2 million in settlements from groups including the Humane Society, ending a 14-year fight over allegations that circus employees mistreated elephants, the AP reported.

“Ringling Bros. has changed a great deal over a century and a half, but not fast enough,” Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society, said in a statement. “It’s just not acceptable any longer to cart wild animals from city to city and have them perform silly yet coercive stunts.”

There’s something more amazing than any spectacle staged by Ringling Bros.: a moonbat objecting to coercion.

Will they be satisfied with the fall of the circus? No, they will not:

The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals also welcomed the announcement Saturday night, calling it “the end of the saddest show on earth” and demanding that other acts follow suit.

“All other animal circuses, roadside zoos, and wild animal exhibitors, including marine amusement parks like SeaWorld and the Miami Seaquarium, must take note: society has changed, eyes have been opened, people know now who these animals are, and we know it is wrong to capture and exploit them,” PETA said in a statement.

After they have put an end to zoos, marine parks, et cetera, the militants will turn their attention to pets, who must be liberated to fend for themselves in the name of animal equality.

Insurance for Everybody

Despite its infamous fecklessness, the Republican Party has prevented the USA from sliding all the way into socialism by serving as a roadblock to Democrats. But will anyone put up resistance when it is the GOP pushing the runaway statism? Looks like we are about to find out:

Trump said in a weekend interview that he is nearing completion of a plan to replace President Obama’s signature health-care law with the goal of “insurance for everybody” …

“We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”

Healthcare is a commodity. It can be provided on a free market basis to those willing to pay for it, or it can be provided on a coercive basis. As with other commodities, the former works and is moral, the latter does not and is not.

Trump’s affection for nationalized healthcare has been known all along. He has praised Canada’s dysfunctional system, among the many times he has extolled socialized medicine. He told 60 Minutes, “I am going to take care of everybody. … The government’s gonna pay for it.”

People who brought all this up during the primaries were shouted down. Now it is too late. Unless conservatives in Congress miraculously develop principles and spines, ObamaCare will be followed by something still more socialistic, as was intended by those who imposed it.

Blind Opera Singer Andrea Bocelli Backs Out of Inauguration After Receiving Death Threats

Andrea-Bocelli
A voice silenced.

Some entertainers have refused to participate in the inauguration because they are moonbats who put their self-indulgent leftist posturing ahead of their profession — others, because they are afraid:

Opera star Andrea Bocelli backed out of singing at Donald Trump’s inauguration after receiving death threats, The Mail on Sunday has learnt.

It was rumored that Bocelli backed out because he didn’t want to face a boycott from intolerant liberal fans…

But a source said the 58-year-old had been determined to ‘press ahead’ and sing but had pulled out on the advice of his security team after receiving threats to his life.

A source close to Bocelli, a friend of Trump’s, said: ‘Andrea is very sad to be missing the chance to sing at such a huge global event but he has been advised it is simply not worth the risk.’

Bocelli isn’t alone:

The revelation came as another singer – Broadway legend Jennifer Holliday – last night pulled out of the President-elect’s festivities after being threatened and branded an ‘Uncle Tom’. …

Singer Holliday, 56, famed for her performance as Effie in Dreamgirls, had originally said she was ‘determined’ to sing for Trump despite voting against him.

She also denounced the abuse she was getting and called it an attack on freedom of speech.

However, she knuckled under to this attack, not only canceling her performance but validating the thugs who forced her to.

However, [Friday] night she said that she had not realised her participation in the inauguration show would be interpreted as support for the President-elect.

Holliday, who has performed for the Clintons, both George W Bush and his father, and the Reagans, issued a statement apologising to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fans for being ‘uneducated’ on the issues.

Here’s a little education on the LGBT issue. Trump does not oppose the homosexual/transsexual agenda. He announced that Bruce Jenner is welcome to use the ladies’ room at Trump Tower. During the campaign, he wrapped himself in the rainbow flag of homosexual militancy:

LGBT-for-Trump

But I’m forgetting; as the 1960s radicals used to say, the issue is never the issue — the issue is always the revolution. That is, the issue is cranking the ratchet leftward as forcefully as possible. Trump is seen by some as impeding this objective; therefore, singing at his inauguration is “homophobic.”

If liberals get any more intolerant, the country will split apart at the seams. But that would be better than caving in to them.

Bums, Junkies Use War Memorial as Open Latrine

hawaii-korea-vietnam-memorial

The Greatest Generation honored its worthy heroes. The current generation mainly honors dysfunction, spewing contempt at anything that is worthy of veneration, and heaping reverence upon anything that isn’t. A story from Hawaii is emblematic of the contrast:

Some are calling a tribute to Hawaii’s war dead an embarrassment to the state after a lawmaker found homeless people using Hawaii’s Korean and Vietnam War Memorial as an open latrine. …

“The homeless are nesting there and defecating there because it provides a degree of concealment,” said state Rep. Bob McDermott, whose district includes Ewa Beach. …

“It’s human waste. Several piles along with clothing and needles and other trash. It’s just terrible,” he said.

In the past, even derelicts would have been more likely to show some modicum of respect. There would have been consequences for those who didn’t. Now, the world seems to revolve around those who have the least respect, and who deserve the least.

German Green Party Offers Publicly Funded Prostitution

Give up freedom, tradition, morality, and property rights, and leftists will promise you pretty much anything. Collectivism has brought us from a chicken in every pot to a prostitute in every bed:

Sex with prostitutes will be paid for by the Government for anyone too poor for a hooker and deemed to need sexual assistance under German Green Party plans.

The party’s care spokeswoman Elisabeth Scharfenberg says doctors should have the right to issue the free prescriptions to their patients for ladies of the night.

Degenerate moonbats point to Holland, where prostitution is already financed through socialized medicine. It is said to be therapeutic for the elderly and the disabled.

Before long, sex with prostitutes will be acknowledged as a human right by the United Nations. Then American taxpayers will have the privilege of paying for other people to have anonymous sex throughout the world, just like we already do with abortion.

Swiss Citizens Nix Citizenship for Outspoken Moonbat

One great thing about Switzerland is that regular people can participate in decisions, rather than having decisions unilaterally inflicted upon them by centralized authorities. For example, local residents are largely responsible for approving citizenship applications. This can be helpful in keeping out moonbats:

A Dutch woman has seen her request for Swiss citizenship refused for the second time by local residents who object to her media campaigning against cowbells and other Swiss traditions.

Nancy Holten, 42, grew up in Switzerland and has children who are Swiss citizens, but is too obnoxious a moonbat to be welcome there. She confirms that she will not stop screaming to the media about her dislike of Swiss traditions that she does not deem to be sufficiently politically correct.

A vegan and supporter of animal rights, she gained a reputation in her community of Gipf-Oberfrick, in the canton of Aargau, after campaigning against cowbells, claiming they were damaging to cows’ health.

She has also objected to hunting and piglet racing, and complained about the noise of church bells in the village, campaigns that have seen her regularly interviewed in the Swiss press over the past few years.

A woman so intolerantly liberal as to condemn church bells ought to apply for citizenship in San Francisco instead.

Syracuse University Cracks Down on Associating Colors With Genders

Once universities pushed back ignorance to advance science. Now they are better known for pushing back liberty to advance political correctness. But at least they are taking the lead in eradicating examples of “bias” like the tradition of associating colors with genders. From Campus Reform:

Syracuse University has launched a “STOP Bias” campaign warning students against such potential offenses as “displaying a sign that is color-coded pink for girls and blue for boys.”

Also forbidden according to the campaign are “avoiding or excluding others” and “making comments on social media about someone’s disability, ethnicity, race, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, or political affiliation/beliefs.”

Syracuse University students who become aware of such offenses are encouraged to report them to the Thought Police using the handy Bias Incident Reporting Form, and remember: “as a student of SU, you have an obligation to take an active role in fostering an appreciation for diversity and sending the message loud and clear that bias-related acts will not be tolerated.”

Political correctness has reached the extreme where literally anyone can be convicted of thought crime. Even those using the Bias Incident Reporting Form to denounce thought criminals prove themselves to be thought criminals by commenting on someone’s “political affiliation/beliefs.” This is not a bug but a feature. Making everyone a criminal, so that punishment can be inflicted arbitrarily, is an objective of any totalitarian system.

Hate Hoax: Anne Arundel High School’s Kool Kids Klan

People are on to hate hoaxes by now. They know that when alleged victims are members of a politically preferred group, the crime is probably phony. Yet the hoaxes keep coming. From Anne Arundel County, Maryland:

Police began their investigation after Arundel High School officials told them about a suspicious Twitter account.

The account, named @KoolkidsKlanKkk, reportedly sent out a tweet that read, “We’re planning to attack tomorrow”.

This account used similar language to a racial petition that had been passed around Anne Arundel High School by the “Kool Kids Klan”.

Two whole people signed the petition, but no charges were filed in that case.

Can you guess the race of the person who sent the menacing tweet?

That person has been identified as a 14-year-old African American female who attends Arundel High School.

Authorities interviewed the girl while she was with her parents, and police say she admitted to creating the Twitter account and sending the threatening tweet.

We don’t know her name yet, but we are bound to learn it eventually. She has a future in the lucrative civil rights field.
