There is an old maxim about not defecating in the same location where you take your repast that Neeson apparently forgot, and it will be interesting to see how many gun owners choose to boycott Neeson’s movies as a result of his calling our support of the Second Amendment “a [expletive] disgrace.”
I’ve personally grown tired of financially supporting an entertainment industry where the stars seem to think that their temporary celebrity gives them the authority to tell me how to live… especially as they so do so from behind the walls of gated mansions, peering out from behind the shoulders of their personal bodyguards.
I sincerely hope that other gun companies—and the American people in general—join in this boycott of Neeson.
It’s about time that he’s retired.
2015 could usher in chaos, unrest and violence as we have not seen in our lifetime. The Communists are now joining hands in America with the Radical Islamists, forming an American Intifada – an uprising, resistance, revolt. They are using racism as the building blocks and their hate for America as the glue to forward massive havoc and violence in our streets.
The riots in Ferguson and New York were just the warm up act for these thugs. They are looking to create what they think is an American Spring, which will push every radical and Communist ideal there is out there. It will scream racism, go after the police and alphabet agencies, cry social and environmental injustice, push demands for Islamic acceptance and Shariah law – and in the mix will be the ever-present Jew-hatred which is the kindling for their hatred.
The Islamic State in Nigeria had reportedly managed to kill 2,000 people last year. This year they did it in one week. But we don’t pay much attention to what happens in Nigeria unless there’s a hashtag. No one has yet thought up a clever hashtag for the murder of 2,000 people. #Bringbackourdead doesn’t really work.
The foreign policy infrastructure, the human rights NGOs and the self-important scribblers who presume to tell the world what is important in the pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post have fought hard to avoid connecting the killings by the Islamic State in Nigeria to the killings by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. And they have fought hardest of all to avoid connecting these killings to the thousands murdered in the streets of New York and the latest bodies strewn about Paris. The killings can be connected with three simple words; global Islamic genocide.
… maybe they have awoken to what they were being told all those years, that Israel and the Jews were the “canary in the coal mine.” Maybe they will realize that letting Muslims come into their country and form their own isolated communities was a grave mistake. Maybe they will realize tolerating Muslims’ destroying a thousand cars on New Year’s in mass fires is unacceptable. Maybe they will realize allowing religious leaders to preach destructive, inflammatory rhetoric shouldn’t be condoned, but rather condemned.
There is a backlash here against some Americans who argue that they are happy to have immigrants, but they want them to become Americans. That is what has happened since before the Declaration of Independence. Little Italy or Little Korea is fine for living areas, but people come to America and Americans want them to become Americans. That does not mean they need to leave their culture at Ellis Island, but it means we don’t want 200 different countries. The French allowed these immigrants to create their own country within their borders in some misguided liberal thought strain. What has occurred is the breeding of anti-French, anti-Christian, anti-Free World attitudes resulting in murderous radicals who harbor disrespect for French ideals of free thought.
“What a sickening lot of sanctimonious hypocritical cowards, quislings, liars, and traitors our political class has become! I curse them all.”
American Sniper had the largest opening ever on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, or any weekend in January. It is producing the kind of numbers — a projected $105 million weekend — usually reserved for mindless comic-book superhero movies. It has played especially well in Middle America, with its top-grossing theaters in places like San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Houston, and Albuquerque.
All of this is profoundly disquieting to the Left, which has so much sway in Hollywood. It hates and distrusts the idea of the war hero, believing it smacks of backwardness and jingoism. Its notion of compelling war movies were the tendentiously anti-war flops Green Zone, Stop-Loss, and In the Valley of Elah. Its reaction to American Sniper has been to belittle the movie and smear Chris Kyle.
… not a new phenomenon. Since Vietnam, the only military men the Left has found to like are those who return to the U.S. and roundly repudiate the war in which they fought. They think the highest form of patriotism is marching before Congress to “blow the whistle” on horrors, real or imagined, being committed by Uncle Sam’s legions against innocents overseas. The only veterans worth honoring with medals are those who will turn and chuck those medals over the Capitol fence, à la John Kerry. The Left has no love — or even tolerance — for unapologetic servicemen who write about “savage, despicable evil” and declare their fidelity to “God, Country, Family,” in that order.
As the Kyle critics have made clear, it is now nothing short of an unassailable truth on the left that the act of criticizing America’s military ventures is in itself an indication of moral and intellectual superiority.
… one of my core criticisms of movies about the War on Terror is that they flinch — not when telling of the horrors of war for American soldiers — but when describing the true nature of the enemy. American Sniper goes where no movie has gone before in showing how the enemy uses children, kills children, and savagely tortures its enemies (Kyle discovers a torture room in Fallujah, and its portrayal is very close to reality). The movie isn’t excessively grisly (so wide audiences can see it), but one doesn’t need to show the close-up of a terrorist killing a young boy with a power drill to understand what just happened. When Kyle describes the enemy as “savages,” you know exactly why, and you agree with him.
Leftists such as Michael Moore will rage on, and professors will judge the movie without seeing it — and all that backlash may cost the movie an Oscar — but Clint Eastwood has done something far greater than win an Oscar. He reached a great nation with a story it needed to hear.
» ‘Diversity’ in action
Europe is currently in the process of paying the price for years of importing millions of people from a culture hostile to the fundamental values of Western culture. And this is by no means the last of the installments of that price, to be paid in blood and lives, for smug elites’ Utopian self-indulgences in moral preening and gushing with the magic word “diversity.”
In America, “diversity” has still not yet lost its magical ability to stop thought in its tracks and banish facts into the outer darkness.
Perhaps here, as in Europe, that verbal magic can only be washed away in the blood of innocent victims, many of them yet unborn.
It is one of the monumental examples of political irresponsibility that the southern border has not been secured during administrations of either party, despite promises and posturing.
Many fine people have come here from Mexico. But, as with any other group, some are just the opposite. With open borders, however, we don’t even know how many people who cross that border are Mexican, much less anything more relevant, like their education, diseases, criminal records or terrorist ties.
Al Sharpton is a racist whose advocacy of hate has made him the dominant black leader. The ascent of Sharpton from street thug to MSNBC host and Obama confidante is the clearest possible rejection of the MLK legacy, not by white racists, but by black racists and their progressive collaborators.
Race relations have been set back because like Sharpton, Obama and his supporters have wielded racial division as a weapon, whether to scapegoat critics or to stir up protests to improve voter turnout.
Sharpton succeeded because he understood his role as the dark side of the Democratic Party. He knows that the Democrats don’t want “I have a dream,” instead they want Sharpton’s “These whites must learn in this town that they going to pay when they put their hands on African people.”
Selma is the carrot. The dream is never supposed to be achieved because if it is achieved, it isn’t only Sharpton who will have to go begging for work, but much of the Democratic Party.

“The real reason methane has become an obsession of the green lobby is that it sometimes leaks when extracting or transporting oil and especially natural gas. Thus methane [control] can be a pretext for interfering with and raising the costs of drilling.”
So in addition to a simple ’power-grab’ that expands EPA’s regulatory reach, we have here an attempt to cripple the one bright spot of US energy production. Just who are these EPA folks working for – and where is their science?
Being offended has replaced jackboots and truncheons as the main implement of totalitarianism. Unsurprisingly, the two totalitarian sects that are offended most often are the two most suffocating: Muslims and liberals. Only this pair of allies could find even snowmen offensive.
This year global warming brought snow to Saudi Arabia, resulting in a harsh edict
