So they hauled in songstress, whose most upbeat works instigate wrist-slitting and overdosing, to ask about his anti-American statements. And?

Cartoon Capitulation

Filed under: Censorship, Dhimmitude, Islam, Muslim Violence, Politics — queerconservative @ 11:18 am

William J. Bennett and Alan M. Dershowitz have authored a joint editorial (yes, you read that right) on the failure of the press to live up to it’s responsibility during the battle of the cartoons. Strange bedfellows indeed. From the Washington Post:

What has happened? To put it simply, radical Islamists have won a war of intimidation. They have cowed the major news media from showing these cartoons. The mainstream press has capitulated to the Islamists — their threats more than their sensibilities. One did not see Catholics claiming the right to mayhem in the wake of the republished depiction of the Virgin Mary covered in cow dung, any more than one saw a rejuvenated Jewish Defense League take to the street or blow up an office when Ariel Sharon was depicted as Hitler or when the Israeli army was depicted as murdering the baby Jesus.

So far as we can tell, a new, twin policy from the mainstream media has been promulgated: (a) If a group is strong enough in its reaction to a story or caricature, the press will refrain from printing that story or caricature, and (b) if the group is pandered to by the mainstream media, the media then will go through elaborate contortions and defenses to justify its abdication of duty. At bottom, this is an unacceptable form of not-so-benign bigotry, representing a higher expectation from Christians and Jews than from Muslims.

When we were attacked on Sept. 11, we knew the main reason for the attack was that Islamists hated our way of life, our virtues, our freedoms. What we never imagined was that the free press — an institution at the heart of those virtues and freedoms — would be among the first to surrender.

They couldn’t be more right or course.

Student under fire for yelling:’Remember Chappaquiddick!’

From WorldNetDaily:

A community college student in Massachusetts faces possible disciplinary action for shouting “Remember Chappaquiddick!” during an on-campus speech by Democrat Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Paul Trost, 20, a student at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, Mass., says he was upset by an introduction of Kennedy given by Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., in which the congressman noted how the long-time senator overcame hardship in life on his way to success.

Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.

“Lynch said Kennedy had overcome such adversity to get to the place he was, and that’s a bunch of bull,” Trost said of the introduction, which occurred in the school’s student center Tuesday morning.

Just as Kennedy began speaking, Trost was walking out of the room when he shouted, “Remember Chappaquiddick!”

“Most of the crowd gasped,” Trost said. “Then I walked out of the student center.”

I’m amazed that anyone can think good old Teddy has ever known one second of adversity; what a hoot. Of course the honorable Senator’s security goons got right on the intimidation bandwagon, stopping Trost outside the hall, along with campus police, and taking down his information for appropriate punishment for speaking the truth.

Trost also stood up to one of his instructors who called him “ignorant” and declared his actions an “embarrassment to the school.” No decision has been made on a punishment for brave, young Trost.

On the bright side, Trost’s actions caused his fellow students to begin reading up on the Chappaquiddick incident. Most of them had never heard of it.

Was Trost disrespectful? That’s debatable I suppose. I guess it depends on who you think deserves respect. We could ask Mary Jo Kopechne her opinion, but she seems to be unavailable for comment.

The Ports Brouhaha

Okay, so over the last few days more facts have come out about the Dubai Ports World deal.

1. DPW isn’t taking over all operations at the ports in question, they will only be running certain terminals.

2. Security (such as it is) will still be an American concern overseen by the Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security.

3. The workers will still be American longshoremen, as will management for the most part.

Even with all that taken into consideration, I still believe this is a bad move, that was poorly thought out. Or worse, something they thought could be slipped by us without notice.

The President argues that “those who are questioning it” need to “step up and explain why all of a sudden a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard than a Great British company.”

Okay, the United Arab Emirates is a conservative Islamic country. The UAE gave indirect support to the 9/11 hi-jackers. While the UAE may be cooperating with the United States in the War on Terror now, it has a long, long way to go before it can be called an ally of the same caliber as the United Kingdom. Also, the information on who knew about this and when, including the President, is getting increasingly sketchy. That alone should be cause for putting this deal on hold while we investigate the details further.

Ann Coulter puts it this way:

First of all, it’s not “all of a sudden.” The phrase you’re searching for, Mr. President, is “ever since the murderous attacks of Sept. 11.” The Bush administration’s obstinate refusal to profile Middle Easterners has been the one massive gaping hole in national security since the 9/11 attacks – attacks that received indirect support from the United Arab Emirates.

There are at least 3,000 reasons why a company controlled by a Middle Eastern Muslim emirate should be held to a different standard than a British company. Many of these reasons are now buried under a gaping hole that isn’t metaphorical in lower Manhattan.

Even four years after 9/11, I note that we don’t hear Tony Blair condemning some cartoons in a Danish newspaper as “a cultural extremism,” or saying their publication represents a “dreadful clash of civilizations.”

That was U.A.E. Minister of Justice and Islamic Affairs Mohammed Al Dhaheri’s recent comment on the great Danish cartoon caper.

Yes, Mr. President, there is a large and glaring difference between the United Arab Emirates and Great Britain, or China, or Denmark or any of the other countries who have companies that run port facilities. Even though I trust those countries far more than an state owned Arab company, perhaps in this day and age, the management and operation of an infrastructre as vital and sensitive as our ports should be kept at home.

God Hates Children That Draw Pictures

Filed under: Censorship, Dhimmitude, Islam, Muslim Violence, War on Terror — queerconservative @ 2:58 pm

I’m sorry boys and girls, I have bad news. If you like to draw pictures of your mommy and daddy, or pictures of puppies playing in a meadow, or if you enjoy coloring books, or playing with puppets, then God hates you.

Islam is ridiculous.
