…as American politician tells it like it is:

“I think what [the Charlie Hebdo massacre] points out to us is the utter barbarity of the people who are opposing us,” said [Rand] Paul—with the understanding that “us” was all Western civilization. “We need to do a lot of the things that we are doing already.”

Paul was talking about existing spying and security policies, but he added another idea. “Maybe every Muslim immigrant that wishes to come to France shouldn’t have an open door,” he said.

Prodded by Hannity, Paul also criticized Western publications that had decided against publishing the cartoons that Charle Hebdo’s attackers cited as anti-Islam. The Western censors, said Paul, had to be “deaf, dumb and blind” to hold back. “I haven’t seen any Christians or Jews dragging Muslims through the streets, but I have seen the opposite.

I think I have my 2016 candidate! Paul’s fresh perspective would be the perfect antidote to the tired old retread that is Hillary Clinton. He would be our Obama to her McCain. Heck, Paul even wants to be “tranformational”.

Jon Stewart on Charlie Hebdo

January 14, 2015

Yes, he’s a hyperpartisan, ultra-liberal, obnoxious jerk. But Jon Stewart’s response to the Charlie Hebdo attacks is very funny. Here’s a video from the Daily Show right after the attacks:

And here’s one about the march in Paris that was notably missing the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize:

Hey, remember when the President of the United States said:

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Well, I guess the future doesn’t belong to them, now that they’re dead.

UPDATE: Perhaps I was being too hard on the president. He doesn’t want the death penalty for “those who slander the prophet of Islam”, just some jail time:

Was this note by a transgendered teen who committed suicide by walking in front of a tractor-trailer.

41% of transgendered people have attempted suicide, according to a survey with a sample size of 7,000. I hope the world shows more compassion to these people, who have it tough enough without others trying to tell them what gender they ought to be.

How you can tell that a rape report is false

When the Lying Liberal Media makes a big deal of it.

The Tawana Brawley case – a LIE
The Jamie Leigh Jones case – a LIE
The Duke Lacrosse case – a LIE
The UVA/Rolling Stone case – a LIE
That chick who carries around a mattress to get course credit at Columbia university – a LIE

The accused in these cases were white. But blacks actually comprise 48% of rapists, more than any other race.

Rape victims are 70% white. But, somehow, there doesn’t seem to be any mention in the “news”papers or TV “news” about an epidemic of black-on-white rape…

CUNY student newspaper advocates violence

I wonder if this counts as a “micro-aggression” or something:

The time for peace has passed, indeed it never existed in this country. It doesn’t matter if [Michael] Brown robbed a convenience store, or even if he assaulted [Darren] Wilson.

While there are opportunists who have used the protests to their own end, the acts of looting, destruction of property, and violence directed towards state representatives is not only warranted, it is necessary.

The problem with the protestors’ violence in Ferguson is that it is unorganized. If the violence was to be organized, and the protestors armed – more so than the few that sparingly are – then the brunt of social pressures would not be laid onto middling proprietors, but unto those deserving the most virulent response of an enraged populace.

Courtesy of Sony, Google, and Microsoft. Kudos to them! Apple is conspicuously absent from the fray. I guess they don’t want people to “Think Different” after all:

According to people briefed on the matter, Sony had in recent days asked the White House for help in lining up a single technology partner — Apple, which operates iTunes — but the tech company was not interested, at least not on a speedy time table.

No matter. Apple customers like me can get the movie from Google Play or YouTube and watch it on the YouTube or Google Play apps on our iOS devices.
