Mohammedan myth

MEET BEN SHAPIRO, a conservative Jew, both religiously and politically. He’s one of my favorite fellows, a political activist, pundit and writer for the Right Side.

He’s the Honcho of the online news site, Truth Revolt, which is an arm of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a conservative think tank.

Shapiro is young, fearless and incredibly articulate. Now and then, he inexplicably is invited to speak at an elite university, and much of the student body and faculty, whom Shapiro refers to as “snowflakes,”  go stark, raving insane.

They throw things. They scream. They holler. They toss red paint to represent blood. They foam at the mouth.

They heave their plushy bears out of their playpens.

And Shapiro, unfazed, keeps on speaking through it all.

This common reaction on campuses today highlights the hilarious irony of the left’s referring to Donald Trump as dangerous, a man who incites violence.

The left-wing Democrat Party is all about violence, either verbal or both physical and verbal.

True, Trump increasingly says that pushing back is justified, and he is correct. The Jews of 1930s Europe did not push back, and remember how that ended for them.

The increasing political violence in the United States began on the left, and it’s growing daily. It’s the left that abhors free speech, not the conservatives. It’s the left that shouts down contrary opinions, not the conservatives.

Were Bill Ayers to be invited to speak at one of the very few conservative campuses, he would be listened to politely or, more likely, he would be ignored.

He would not be physically threatened or even bellowed at because conservatives are polite people.

Today, Shapiro is addressing the myth that most Mohammedans are peaceful or — more correctly — that most do not harbor radical, violent attitudes.

While it is true that most do not actually murder “the infidels” or even stone women of their own religion, most do think it’s a real swell idea much of the time.

The backlash

BILL MAHER, a left-wing goombah who’s sometimes smart, said last week that the Trump phenomenon is a backlash against the absurdities of political correctness.

Precisely. That and some other things too.

The backlash is also happening in Europe, and that puts a smile on my face. I want to invite all these bright, young people to the Hacienda for a pozole party. BYOB.

Leftists don’t really want multiculturalism and diversity. They want a global uni-culture where everybody thinks alike.

Just like them, of course. Their perfect world can be seen on university campuses where contrary opinions are shouted down and monkey trials are the rage, literally.

One wonders when they’ll take up goose-stepping.

THIS VIDEO from my boy Bill Whittle hails from 2011, a blast from the past, but it’s just as applicable today as it was four years back.

The gay mafia

LEFT-WING television pundit Bill Maher has criticized what he dubs the “gay mafia.”

He was, of course, referring to those who “take offense” at most anything while crouching behind the protective walls of their constant-victim status. Staying with the mafia theme a moment, there is also, of course, a black mafia, a Latino mafia, a feminist mafia and some lesser-known mafias too. All suffer mightily.

Fear them because you could lose your livelihood with an unwise word.

There is also a white mafia. It’s called the Ku Klux Klan, but nobody pays them much attention anymore because of white privilege. You can say whatever you want about them.

543446fed35b7fd43d433af0c2faa1adAnd there’s always the real Mafia, the greasy-coifed guys called Big Palooka and Little Jimmy. That was the mafia you wanted to steer clear of — back in the old days — before collectivists and their shrill political-correctness malarky greatly expanded the pool of mafias and their tactics.

So what floats this topic to the top of the pool today? An incident at a military, full-dress, formal ball in New York in which a couple of lesbian Army officers decided it would be great to French-kiss and play grab-ass and then get “offended” when someone asked them to knock it off. Details are here.

The officer who intervened, due to people taking photos and videos he rightly worried might end up on Facebook and Twitter, is now on the verge of being booted out of the military for insensitivity. Yes, him, not the lesbian smootchers and grab-assers at a formal military ball. They remain off limits, touched by God and holy.

He is a lieutenant colonel and decorated combat pilot. But those qualifications count for naught up against “offended” lesbians. This is the American world in which you live. Weep.

(Note: This viciously run, unjust, new world is brought to you exclusively by those who favor the NDP — the New Democratic Party. Ironically, Maher, who seems to be growing a bit brighter with age, this week blamed the recent NDP drubbing in the midterms in part on the NDP’s getting “lost in the weeds of political correctness.”)
