Steynianism 180

“You obey, or you obey. On earth there is no third choice. The only question, ultimately, is whom. Christians are called to obey the God whose very commands set us free. The alternative is to heed somebody else, enjoy a petty and temporary license, and clap yourself in irons.”

~ AN ANGRY WOMAN named Pearl Eliadis: “..she tries to portray her critics as violent, is it? So she amends the truth; changes the facts; and then presents it to her echo chamber of fellow human rights jet-setters. What a liar”; Ezra fisks Pearl Eliadis’ Power Point presentation …. (Ez, DG)

FreeSpeechery

“I bet if there were any political action to regulate porn on the Internet so as to protect families and children, you would see an outcry against “censorship” like you would not believe. The same people who are silent about real censorship would be pumping the handcart to hell like crazy to protect the rights of children and men to enslave themselves to soul-destroying, dehumanizing, demeaning sexual content. Gee, if the so-called human rights commissions really wanted to look at hatred against women, and boys and girls and men they should go after the porn industry.”

~ FEEL THE TOLERANCE— “The outspoken evangelical Bishop of Rochester said activist British homosexuals threatened his life, forcing him to temporarily leave his home recently under tight Police security. “There was a demonstration outside my home and the Police advised me to leave. My family and I moved to a nearby hospital. “It is a matter of public record that I have also received death threats from militant Muslims,” the Rt. Rev.

~ NEW CRITERION— “Martin Amis needs no pardon because his views are not as noxious as Kipling’s (at his worst) or Claudel’s (at his best). In fact, they are solidly in the liberal Enlightenment camp, which would seem boring today if these views weren’t so radical. This has not stopped a certain semi-literate faction of p.c. ideologues from calling Amis a racist. Its evidence? In an interview he gave in 2006, he said the following” …. (NEW CRITERION)

~ EN FRANÇAIS— Terrorisme: Le procès Khawaja à Ottawa : Bienvenue à Djihadiland. “La police et les agents de sécurité sur toute la planète en parlent depuis des années: Internet a permis la normalisation des tendances djihadistes de la jeunesse musulmane occidentale. C’est très alarmant lorsqu’on le voit à travers un procès chez nous, et aussi de constater l’infiltration de nos institutions.

“In modern societies there are three sources of power and influence, the family, religion and the state. Society is healthy—it is rational—when none of these usurp the prerogatives of another. The state has no business preaching a religion. The family has no business collecting taxes. Religion has no business running the military. And the fact of the matter is that society has nothing to fear from the family and from religion. Associations among these are entirely voluntary. The state is a different matter.”

Jihad

“Canada is a country where Muslims are respected and accommodated like in no other land on Earth, including Saudi Arabia and Iran. It is immoral for the Islamists to slander my country with the slur of Islamophobia. As Statistics Canada has shown, incidents of racism in Canada are far more likely to affect Christian black Canadians and Jewish Canadians than Muslims. However, truth is the first casualty in this propaganda war being waged against Canada by its own Islamists.”

~ DAVID HARRIS— The enemy within. “Details emerging from the Khawaja trial suggest it’s time to take seriously the oft-stated terrorist goal of infiltrating western institutions”; Scarmouche– “Jihadis in our midst: Is the trial of an alleged jihadi terrorist in Ottawa a sign that lots of other Khawajas have secretly inserted themselves into Canada’s body politic and are working to destroy democracy and replace it with sharia?” ….

~ WE’RE NOT GOING to the wall over this one, but one account of the origin of modern bagels has it that they were made & named in honour of Jan II Sobieski, saviour of Austria from Jihad 2.5 at Vienna: “an Austrian baker created a stirrup (or ‘beugal’) made out of dough to give to the King of Poland in 1683, in thanks for his help in defeating the Turks, and in honour of his great horsemanship. (Other German variations of the word are: ‘beigel’, meaning ‘ring’, and ‘bugel’, meaning bracelet.).” Given human habits, it was around, re-named, and this is one account of 17th century good marketing. In any case, the next time you have a bagel, remember that good old Polish King, who saved our collective asses in Central Europe by an impossibly thin victory. Without him, Germany would have been next; then Poland, then France. Good news: no French Revolution. Bad news: Shari’a for Everybody! …. (Various)
