    FULL TITLE: San Francisco Public Library hosts transgender “art exhibit” featuring weapons intended to kill feminists If you thought the age of scold’s bridles and dunking pools designed to torture and kill disobedient women were a thing of the past, you would be wrong. The San Francisco Public Library unveiled an exhibit this week featuring blood stained t-shirts encouraging patrons to “punch” feminists, along with several installations of deadly weapons painted pink: baseball bats covered in barbed wire, axes, among others, all designed by men to kill feminist women. The male creators of the exhibit also included a helpful manifesto,...

    Back in 2010, al Qaeda called for terrorist recruits to use trucks to “mow down the enemies of Allah.” In 2014, the Islamic State (ISIS) told fighters if they couldn’t find an IED or a bullet they should kill unbelievers with a knife, rock, or poison, or “run over him with your car.” True to form, in Nice, Berlin, Barcelona, Stockholm, and London, Islamic terrorists used vehicles to mount deadly attacks. Uzbek Muslim Sayfullo Saipov, acting on behalf of the Islamic State, used a rented truck to murder eight victims in New York City last October. Monday’s attack in Toronto...

Videos on social media show Mr Minassian lying down as the officer arrests him. Many in North America are asking how the suspect did not end up dead in a hail of...

    UPDATE: 9 dead in Toronto, authorities confirm it was a terrorist attack.

The van started mowing pedestrians at the intersection of Yonge Street and Finch, a very busy area of Toronto, in the early afternoon. The driver was arrested at the scene after a short confrontation with the police and he’s currently in custody. Early police reports put the...

    More negative coverage he gets from the left wing media, the more he will resonate with ordinary people. Ford should not run around saying, “Vote for me, I’m just like Donald Trump.” But he should not run away from comparisons to the U.S. president Since winning the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party a week ago, former Toronto City Councillor Doug Ford has been compared to Donald Trump. And not in a good way. But as polls taken since his victory indicate, a significant number of Ontarians do not like him but will vote for him anyway in order...
