  • White Americans are a Greater Terrorist Threat than Muslim Immigrants. But...

    I feel the need to share this. Over at Reddit, on The Donald, someone posted this article from "The Independent" in Washington DC about how to blue-pill your grandparents at Christmas. The story includes a link to an article stating that according to a study by New America, "white homegrown terrorists" have killed more Americans than Muslim immigrants or refugees (if you start counting AFTER 9/11, of course.) So I followed that link to another article, also by The Independent. They link you to New America, but not the study, and no page you can find the study on. But...
  • Doesn't This CIA/NYT Marriage Look Strangely Familiar?

    This whole Russian hackers may be Wiki's source of HRC's emails and that means the Russians "hacked the election" narrative reminds me very much of the stunt an ambassador named Joe Wilson pulled in 2002, with the help of the New York Times. Anyone remember this? It was not long after G.W. Bush's State of the Union address, where Bush said that Saddam Hussein had sought to buy enriched uranium from Africa (presumably to make weapons of mass destruction.) Joe Wilson, who was a liberal, decided to "investigate" this claim. He went to one country, Niger, for about 10 days...

    I recently went to the Getty Villa on the Malibu coastline in California, and wandered around looking at the antiquities of ancient Rome and Greece. Currently, the display features some very intricate mosaics, decorated vases, and several funereal portraits that would apparently decorate the mummies of the aristocratic dead. What struck me most is how detailed, beautiful, and lifelike were the renditions of humans and animals. The lions snarled, the snakes writhed, the warriors flexed, and the portraits of the dead, almost all of them tragically young, gazed with hope and eagerness, and bright expressive eyes. Western art has always...
  • Thousands of Former Muslims Are Speaking Out After Paris

    Where are all the secular liberals in the Muslim world? I've lost count of how many times I've heard this question. The answer is both unsurprising and heartbreaking. In Muslim-majority countries, they are often being lashed and imprisoned for blogging, hacked to death in open daylight, or sentenced to death for writing poetry. Here in the West, they are often being disowned from their families, ostracized from their communities, and even murdered by their own families in "honor killings." As for those who choose to leave the religion altogether, the outcome is even more sinister. There are thirteen countries, all...

    New York police were searching today for a man who pushed a 61-year-old man onto subway tracks, where he was killed by a train. Wai Kuen Kwok, 61, was standing with his wife and waiting for a downtown train at a Bronx subway station this morning, when he was pushed off the platform, according to the New York Police Department. Police said Kwok was killed this morning after being pushed into the path of an oncoming train at 8:44 a.m. Police confirmed that Kwok was pushed as he was waiting with his wife for a downtown train at the East...
  • Advice to a Young Liberal Journalist (vanity)

    So you want to write about poverty, joblessness, homelessness, and general misery in America. Let me give you some advice, and I'll cut right to the chase and be as blunt as possible. First, consider your audience. It’s white people. If you are trying to tell a sob story that ends in “we need more social services” most minorities are already on your side and the ones that aren’t have their own sources of information. You’re talking to mainstream white America, so you need to tailor your story to them. Start with a young white couple who has fallen on...
  • A Teacher's Take on Common Core (Vanity)

    My seething mind | 31MAR14 | Moi
    I have been a Freeper for 12 years and a teacher for 10. I work in Los Angeles, in a public school, and I teach English. I want to say something about Common Core, although my observations will be strictly limited to my particular domain: English. I cannot comment on the Math portion. I will begin bluntly: I do not understand the conservative outcry about Common Core. Perhaps it’s only because I teach in California, but to me it is an improvement, at least in some ways. If you aren’t a teacher (and most conservatives aren’t, which is a pity)...

    Well, if the Zimmerman trial has shown us nothing else, it has shown us what would have happened if Nicole Simpson or Ronald Goldman had had access to a gun the day OJ Simpson killed them. And let's not pretend he didn't. What's more, let's not pretend that those black Americans who did celebrate with jubilation when OJ walked didn't know full well he was a killer. Many admitted it openly then, and still do today. But that was the last time a trial held such attention for such obviously racial reasons. The celebrations when OJ got away with murder...

    My Seething Mind ^ | 11/11/12 | Moi
    Ten years ago, a white man from South Africa, one Kim du Toit, wrote an essay titled “Let Africa Sink.” It’s rather famous in the blogosphere in a sort of underground way. His thesis was essentially, we (Western Civilization) cannot save Africa. Life is cheap there. The mortality rate is a result of a perfect storm of natural disaster, human savagery, and unwitting complicity by Europeans that worsens the situation every time they try to help. As a result, death is treated more casually by Africans than by Westerners. I, and I suspect most Africans, am completely inured to reports...

    Fox News/A.P. ^ | Dec 21, 2011 | Associated Press
    A woman grieving the shooting deaths of her son and granddaughter is now trying to come to grips with news that one of the accused is a longtime family friend whom the 7-year-old victim affectionately called "Uncle Mike." Michael Bell, 21, played high school football with Jeremy Crane and spent many weekends at the Crane family's ranch-style home in suburban Indianapolis. On Wednesday, Bell and another man were formally charged in the deaths of Crane, 21, and his niece, Kyleigh Crane. Cathy Crane, Jeremy's mother and Kyleigh's grandmother, found the bodies Dec. 12 after returning home from work. She said...
  • My Own Personal Chomsky

    My seething mind | 23 Oct 11 | Moi
    Watching the OWS protestors, I realize that everything I need to know about their mentality, I learned from a Marxist anthropology professor ten years ago. I’ll call him Chomsky (it’s not the real Chomsky. Just a knock-off version. Probably made in China.) My Chomsky believed in what he called “equality of outcome.” Like the protestors, he was very upset that some people made “too much” and others had “not enough.” He wanted everyone to have food, shelter, and clothing. That’s understandable. But it wasn’t all. He wanted them to have education and health care, job counseling, and transportation. Dental. Vision....

    I met a typical Democrat on the bus last night. Here’s a little context: I live and work in Los Angeles and am a woman in my mid-40s. I’m about as attractive as a woman in her mid-40s can be when she cuts her own hair and needs to lose about 10lbs. In other words, I’m okay enough. I wear skirts and make-up. But I’d had a long day, so I doubt I was in top form. I got on the crowded bus downtown, and a heavy-set black man in his 60s offered me the seat next to him. (No,...

    NEW YORK -- The wife of an imam planning an Islamic community center and mosque near the World Trade Center site said Sunday that she and her husband have received death threats. "For the record, my life is under threat," Daisy Khan said during a town hall debate on Islam broadcast on ABC's "This Week" news program. Khan, who's married to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, said her husband's life also is under threat but, "We do not walk around with bodyguards because we love this country." Chief police spokesman Paul Browne confirmed that Khan had told authorities about the telephone...

    So the NRSC has decided not to support Tea Party candidates even though they win the primaries? Okay. I say we send them a message, and it's a very easy one. Go to your kitchen and grab a bag of tea. You know, the single-serving ones you put in a cup. Slip it into an envelope. Address the envelope to: National Republican Senatorial Committee Ronald Reagan Republican Center 425 2nd Street NE Washington, DC 20002 Slap a stamp on that baby and drop it in the mail. Takes five minutes and ought to get the point across.

    I'm hearing a lot of voices rise up to declare that if you are opposed to the Victory Mosque at Ground Zero, if you are unhappy with the rising number of muslims in America, if you are wary at the thought of Sharia Law gaining a foothold in our court system, you are Islamophobic. You know what? I'll just go ahead and go on the record as being OFFICIALLY ISLAMOPHOBIC. Yes. Yes, I am scared of those psychopaths. Okay? You got me. I'm busted. I'm scared of them. I'm scared of people who stone 13 year old rape victims to...

    So I wanted to see a movie at the shiny, sterile Century City mall in West L.A., and I had to decide. What should I see, the delicate, introspective, self-affirming, inner journey EAT, PRAY, LOVE, or some stupid shoot-em-up with a bunch of testosterone poisoned trigger happy gun slingers. What are you high? I'm going for the gun-slingers, mang!I liked this movie! Okay, it's not Schindler's List, and here's a quick spoiler: Good guys win. Bad guys die. Actually, that's the whole review.Nah, but it was cool. Sylvester Stallone seems like nice guy for a mercenary. Actually, a little too...

    My seething mind | 08/11/10 | Moi
    As the battle over gay marriage, and more specifically, Prop 8 in California, rages on, we hear more and more about the higher level of sophistication in other countries. Gay marriage is already accepted in many different parts of the world, they say. We are the lag-behinds, the bumpkins, the ones who just can't get with the program.Wondering if this was true, I began researching the attitudes and laws concerning homosexuality in other countries. Whilst on this quest, I came across an interesting factoid about, of all places, Iran. Yes, Iran. Apparently in Iran, they DO HAVE a ceremony that...

    It's actually what I witnessed, not what I experienced. It starts with a long-standing debate I have with a very dear friend who is a little left of center. She maintains that we must have government-subsidized health care or her mother, frankly, would die. She cannot afford her mother's health bills.I've never really understood this, because her mother lives with her and she earns a great deal of money. Twice what I earn, and I am an educated professional. How expensive can it be to keep alive a 73 year old diabetic who has chronic lung inflammation, nerve damage from...

    Before we begin: a disclaimer. I do not like Obama. I do not like the Muslim world. Having said that... I am suddenly considering the possibility that this NASA outreach is not an evil plot to destroy America. It occurs to me that Obama is doing something ... not necessarily wrong. Look, we on the conservative side have long held that the hatred the Muslim world bears toward us is part jealousy. They know they are not a cultural force in this world anymore. They have seen the moment of their greatness flicker (several hundred years ago.) As one pundit...

    Ambassador Obama 7/31/08 I cannot get a straight answer from any of my colleagues. Why exactly do they like Obama? No, seriously. Specifically. What's so great? I mean, I get that he's tall, slender, handsome, and has a great smile... but what is his specific appeal? Beyond looks and words, I mean. Beyond what he symbolizes (exoneration from white guilt, and a gesture toward a world that hates America even when we're saving their butts and pouring financial aid down their throats.) What exactly do they think Obama will do? End war? Well, no, he's said recently that he'd intensify...
