They Call Me "Mr. Sinister": Mark Steyn Sees The Truth

And then starts tap dancing as fast as he can. Sorry Mark, you are not being “fitted up”, but called out. No need to fit you up, your writing speaks for itself. Some of us believe this is an early skirmish in the Eurabian civil war. If the insurgents emerge emboldened, what next? In five ...

Pushed to the Left and Loving It: I’m No Soothsayer But I Warned You

It doesn’t take a genius to predict what will happen when hatred becomes policy. After the Norway attack became public, Peter MacKay suggested that it is still a volatile world. It has been, and always will be, a volatile world, which is why it’s the responsibility of governments to try to keep the peace. Unfortunately, ...

Coren Seems To Think We, Progressives, Are ‘Sewers’ And Please Let’s Not Forget The Victims of The Senseless Tragedy in Norway and May They Never Lose Their Resolve

Jymn published the vile and despicable blogging of Michael ‘cue-ball’ head Coren, earlier today; that miserable blog where he seems to imply that those Norwegian victims seemed to deserve what happened to them.  Now, in Coren’s comment section, Coren seems to be calling those of us who dare to criticize him or anyone progressive minded, ...

Pushed to the Left and Loving It: Sun TV, Ezra Levant and Why the Danish Cartoons Matter

Ezra Levant, long time neocon insider and self-proclaimed stockaholic (one of 3 Stockwell Day fans), is among the bombastic characters on Fox News North (Sun TV).

Progressive Proselytizing: Hate Speech, Religious Freedoms, and Islamophobia

Competing with the concurrent LGBT Pride parade in Toronto, a local imam took it upon himself to very publicly condemn homosexuality, referencing how Islamic law instructs us to execute those caught in the act.

Pushed to the Left and Loving It: Harperite Pal Geert Wilders Acquitted of Hate Speech Charges

The man invited by the Harperites to speak at this year’s Tulip Festival, Geert Wilders, has been acquitted of hate crime charges.

Jim Blake is the Calgary based head of Concerned Christians Canada, an Evangelical pressure group with political ambitions.

bastard.logic: Rima Fakih’s Trojan Bikini

by matttbastard Sometimes it takes well over a thousand words to highlight the absurdity of the viral xenophobia that periodically sweeps over the more Islamophobic denziens of Outer Wingnuttia. This time it would (at first) appear that a mere picture will suffice: Of course, as Echidne points out, the rush to silently refute the ridiculously simplistic racism expressed by Pipes, Schlussel, et ...
