Pravda just reported that Vladimir Putin came out and basically reiterated what President Bush recently said about Islamists who desire to annihilate no-Mohammedans and create a world wide Caliphate. To those who have followed Islamic acts of violence the past several decades and who have extensively read through the Koran, Hadiths, and other Islamic writings this comes as no surprise. Anyone with the ability to read and who has seen he atrocities wrought by Islamists all around the globe could see this as clear as day. It happens almost hourly somewhere on Earth.

The only ones who cannot seem to see these things are Liberals in North America and Europe, and those who call themselves "moderate Muslims." Yet the media for some reason seems to try and paint a picture of a hijacked religion that is essentially peaceful.... And it really irks me to no end to watch our nation, our politicians, and our media tip toe around the issue and pretend it is not a real threat to the civilized world. Yet when our President Bush stands up and calls a spade a spade and he takes action to ensure these zealots cannot get their way and endanger the free thinking world, he is abused in the press and in the political world for being a warmonger....

Liberalism and Sharia are not so different. They both want total domination of their ideologies. They both desire to have the entire world speak their language and blindly follow their rules. They both hate any education that allows free thought, as free thought is the most dangerous enemy to Islam and Liberals. The Muslims have Sharia, Liberals have Political Correctness. Both would have their perceived enemies destroyed with no thought. Ask Michael Moore and his cronies. Listen to the hatred from the lips of both, all one needs to do is disagree with them and the flames will come. Write an article disagreeing with homosexuality or spending wasted billions on failed school systems and social programs that breed only dependency on the government.

Wow! Keith Burgess-Jackson has just done quite a job on Brian Leiter. Keith had a sort of a truce with Leiter for a while (after Keith had called Leiter "nuts") but that is obviously long gone. I think Keith should concentrate on Leiter more. He was concentrating on Krugman for a while (very effectively) but there are quite a few others who regularly fisk Krugman whereas the hate-filled Leiter gets let off free a lot more than he should.

From Samizdata: "My contempt for the Nobel Prize for anything grew dramatically today when I read that Harold Pinter won the award for literature. The fact he is an apologist for Europe's most prolific mass murdering socialist since Joseph Stalin, namely Slobodan Milosovic, is apparently is not something which bothers the worthies in Sweden. A contemptible prize for a contemptible man".

DC: Government employees reward themselves: "The D.C. government employees tasked with providing care to the city's poor have taken home nearly half of the more than $1 million in bonus money awarded by the District during the first half of fiscal 2005. Nearly 400 employees in the D.C. Department of Human Services (DHS) received approximately $479,000 in extra money in their paychecks from Oct. 1, 2004, to March 31, 2005, according to D.C. Office of Personnel records. Citywide, the D.C. government awarded 565 bonus payments for $1.06 million. D.C. City Council member Adrian M. Fenty, chairman of the council's Committee on Human Services, which oversees the Department of Human Services, yesterday said he's going to conduct an inquiry of the department's bonuses."

An American "debacle?" "Iraq is now routinely dismissed as a quagmire or 'lost.' Osama bin laden is assumed to be still active, while we are beginning the fifth year of the war that is 'longer than World War II.' Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo purportedly are proof of our brutality and have lost us hearts and minds, while gas prices spiral out of control. The U.S. military is supposedly 'overextended' if not 'wrecked' by Iraq, while the war in Afghanistan 'drags on.' Meanwhile, it is 'only a matter of time' until we are hit with another terrorist strike of the magnitude of September 11. To cap it off, the United States is now 'disliked' abroad, by those who abhor our 'unilateralism' and 'preemptive' war. All that is a fair summation of the current glumness. But how accurate are such charges? If one were to assess them from the view of the Islamic fundamentalists, they would hardly resemble reality."

Acquiescence and conformity : "In 1967, a middle school history teacher found himself being asked the following kinds of questions by his students in regards to the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime during World War II. How could the German populace claim ignorance of the slaughter of the Jewish people? How could the townspeople, railroad conductors, teachers, doctors, etc., claim they knew nothing about concentration camps and human carnage? How can people who were neighbors and maybe even friends of the Jewish citizens say they weren't there when it happened? His answer was to try a social experiment with his students, unbeknownst to either the students or their parents. I remember it well, since it was the basis for an after-school TV movie that aired in the 70's. The teacher was Ron Jones. His experiment became known as 'The Wave.'"

Practically all policies advocated by the Left create poverty. Leftists get the government to waste vast slabs of the country's labour-force on bureaucracy and paperwork and so load the burden of providing most useful goods and services onto fewer and fewer people. So fewer useful goods and services are produced to go around. That is no accident. The Left love the poor. The Left need the poor so that they can feel good by patronizing and "helping" them. So they do their best to create as many poor people as possible.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist" (Nationalsozialistisch)
