Omar Khadr Deserves Apology from US Military

So say the uber intelligent commenters over at The Globe and Mail. File this under things that make your head explode.

"Omar Khadr apologizes to U.S. soldier’s widow at tribunal"


OMG, this soap opera is getting ridiculous. Did the US military apologize to Khadr for killing his father?

This incident/killing happened in a war "scenario", complete with armed US soldiers and the backing of the US government. If the US was under the impression the other side was not going to fight back they should have sent in diplomats and not the military.

The Emasculation of Men (boys) and the Slutification of Women (girls)

The world really is upside down.

In 2010 we have a teenage boy doing a photoshoot in full makeup as he prepares to launch a line of nail polishes and fragrances.

We have a teenage girl slithering and gyrating half naked in a bed and thrusting her super slutified self onto other girls in a dance club.

****
Cleanser: Yes this video is a bit cheesy, but it still brings a smile. A real man and a beautiful woman with a squeaky clean reputation......starting their future as a family.

Kathy Shaidle on Ford

One of the best posts I have read anywhere in a long time.

You brought them over here, not me. You supposedly need them to drive the cabs I don't take, and be the nannies I don't need and the housekeepers I can't afford, and run the restaurants only you get to eat in and run the shops you're too lazy or prissy to own yourselves.

Mark Steyn Banned from London (Ontario) Venue

The lights are already out.

Steyn and BCF can say just about anything better than I can so....
On Tuesday, I received a phone call from the LCC telling us that our venue had been pulled, and that Mark Steyn would not be permitted to speak there. The reason offered by the LCC was that they had received pressure from local Islamic groups, and they didn’t want to alienate their Muslim clients. It’s interesting to note that the LCC is owned by the City of London, and is therefore a government operation."

Pro-Israel Professor Alderman Disinvited from Israel Debate

The festival’s director Graeme Farrow asked him to join Professors Avi Shlaim of St Anthony’s College, Oxford and Beverley Milton Edwards, of Queens University, Belfast, as speakers at the event.

Professor Shlaim is a noted critic of Israeli policy, while Professor Edwards is the author of a recent study of Hamas.

But on Friday Professor Alderman says he received an email from Mr Farrow withdrawing the invitation to be on the panel.

Mr Farrow told him that he had made “a mistake in agreeing to extend an invitation to you Geoffrey without consulting the academics in question”.

Professor Alderman, who has gone to Belfast, has rejected an offer to participate in the debate as a member of the audience. He said he was “appalled at the way I have been treated”.

After a meeting with Mr Farrow early this afternoon, Professor Alderman said he had given the organisers three options: to allow him to join the panel and if his fellow-panellists were to object, "they could stay away": to let him to take part while sitting on a separate table: or simply to call off the event.

Must Read of the Day: Peter Hitchens on University

For many people, college is a corrupting, demoralising experience. They imagine they are independent when they are in fact parasites, living off their parents or off others and these days often doomed to return home with a sense of grievance and no job. They also become used to being in debt – a state that previous generations rightly regarded with horror and fear.
Read it all.

Meanwhile over in a Canadian school board.....

Radical union funds over 80% of trustees' campaigns. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

German Multiculturalism: FAIL

Says Angela Merkel.

On one hand I completely agree with her.

On the other hand, an overwhelming sense of German nationalism makes me a little nervous. Am I the only one who feels that way?

Germany's chancellor says attempts to create a multicultural society in the country have "utterly failed." Angela Merkel said Saturday that the concept that different cultures can live happily side by side does not work.

From the Women's Movement to Girl Power.....Part 1

Once upon a time there was something called the Woman's Movement (or Women's Movement, or Womyn's Movement, or the Men Are Bastards Movement... it gets confusing). Women were upset because they had to stay home, cook dinner, and change their name when they got married. Then there was some kind of revolution. Women burned their bras, stopped shaving their legs, got jobs and started getting divorces too. They were free! Free! Free at last! Some women questioned the rationale behind the movement, and many were aghast when Betty Friedan compared life as a housewife in suburbia to living in a concentration camp. Betty Friedan may not have been your ordinary housewife, and life in suburbia might have nothing in common with life in Auschwitz, but hey, nobody wants to let facts get in the way of a good movement. Any woman who questioned the Woman's Movement was branded a traitor and considered an apparatus of the oppressive male regime.


The Woman's Movement was not about celebrating femininity, it was about turning women into men. Working in a "man's world," being part of the "boys club" and shedding all traces of the female self which symbolized oppression and stupidity. Motherhood was a prison sentence and marriage was putting yourself in a box.

***
I started writing this post several days ago and then lost track of it, oddly enough because I was swamped with my "real" job which is taking up increasingly large amounts of my time. Then this morning I read a little post over at Closet Conservative that seems to fit with this women wanting to be men idea (see below) and I decided to make this a three part series. Just to keep everyone coming back for more haha. Stay tuned.

The tone of their discourse seems to be that they have 'no choice' but to be the man of the family because they are more manly or something.

I think they are sad, empty shells of women who are married to a bunch of dickless eunuchs.

Britain's Welfare Ghettos

As with New Labour, however, you don't need to look for too long before more worrying signs present themselves. The estate's grocer informs customers that 'milk tokens are accepted'. The other major retailer is a betting shop. A local cafe offers a £4.70 breakfast that includes a can of Stella. In that cafe, I meet a bailiff. He used to live in a council flat in Falinge, but he left 'as soon as I could get the money together'. 'People make judgements about you if you're a resident.'

Most residents do not leave. According to the bailiff, they have instead developed their own parallel economy. 'The ambition is there but it's not to get a job or move out, it's to get benefits. And there is a definite career path. You or I would aim to get a better job. They aim to get a better benefit.’

Islam on Capitol Hill Returns....

Not enough fun the first time around - this time they're trying to get Jesus on their side.

Here are my notes about last year's event.

Shujaat Wasty and DFAIT

BCF posted on this a few days ago. SMW is a little behind in her reading.
This is worth checking out:

DFAIT (Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada) made the news recently for its role in the decision to invite the extremist Canadian Islamic Congress to speak at an absurd DND event purporting to celebrate Islamic History Month. Bad enough I'd say but it always seems to get worse.

Horrific

I am forever thankful that my husband was not injured in these attacks.

Information laid out at the inquest is yet another reminder that ignoring your instincts can cost lives:

All four then caught the 07.25 Thameslink train to King’s Cross, where they entered the Tube network, each carrying a home-made bomb concealed in a rucksack.

Mr Keith said their behaviour had aroused suspicions among other passengers, who described them as avoiding eye contact and seeming ‘happy, even euphoric’.

At 08.49 Khan, Tanweer and Lindsay detonated their bombs, in tunnels near Tube stations at Edgware Road, Aldgate and Russell Square respectively.

UCL Washes its hands of any-all radicalization taking place on campus

More on this later.

One in Six Families Owns Five Televisions

First families stopped eating dinner at the table, instead they ate dinner in front of the tv. Now they do not even eat in front of the tv together - because each member of the family has their own tv.

This story says a great deal about today's society. Unfortunately SMW does not have time for a full commentary, but she is sure readers can come up with their own...

8 Britain's Trained for Mumbai style terror attacks?

So the Daily Mail is reporting.

The chance of an attack in London seems quite likely on the most normal of days, so the media hype over the current threat really doesn't have my proverbial knickers in a twist. In London one must always be viglant (truly we should all be vigilant wherever we find ourselves).

To be totally honest seeing more armed police out on the streets actually makes me feel a bit safer. (Yes I am aware of one extremely unfortunate incident involving armed police and terror threats in London.) Every once in awhile as I swipe my Oyster card and walk through the gates I wonder 'what would happen if someone opened fire?' Would the British Transport Police yell: "Stop or I'll.......walk towards you unarmed and hope that you don't shoot me before I tackle you and your AK47"?? When I see security officers with semi automatics and loaded glocks I let out a small sigh of relief, then I pray that they do not have to use them.

Keep calm and carry on Londoners.

No More Alephbet Soup from Campbell's

Flea:
This is Canada and most people will not care. Nobody cares Mastercard is doing business with Truthers and genocide enthusiasts, let alone a prophecy spelled out in floating pasta. If this were five hundred years ago, we could just pick up and leave them all to it. But we have run out of planet and there is nowhere left to go.

British Terorrist Killed in Drone Attack

Go Team America!!!

A terrorist suspect killed in a drone attack in Pakistan last month was a British man tasked with leading an Al Qaeda group in the UK.

A senior Pakistani security source said that Abdul Jabbar was a British citizen who had a British wife and was living in Punjab, Pakistan.

According to the source, he was chosen as the leader of a new group, to be called The Islamic Army of Great Britain, at a meeting in the North Waziristan region of Pakistan three months ago.


Other stuff: Check the news for stories today about 12 men arrested in France (Marseille and Boredeaux) for planning Mumbai style attacks. Interesting to note: News reports are saying that many of these men were known to police and had been previously arrested on terror charges. More details are needed, but is this a good case study to point out that current EU laws are not adequate for dealing with the threat of terrorism?

Woman takes yobs and railway company to task...

Interesting. Sadly it is mainly just a reminder of the classless losers (and I am not referring to that 'class' that comes with money) who fill the trains and tubes in their drunken state most any day of the week. This lady is lucky she was not physically attacked.

She eventually moved after the station controller promised her he would not move the train and that the police would be called.

Two British Transport Police officers arrived and, after discussions with railway officials, the train was terminated.

Mrs Robinson said yesterday that she was glad she had made a stand and would do it again.

‘I think too often these yobs are allowed to get away with it,’ she added. ‘When the thugs started kicking off, one woman said to me that I should accept it as it was just the world we live in. But I refuse to live in a society where this sort of thing goes unpunished.

A Sad day for Robert Semrau

Natasha sums it up:
Some of the current headlines for this story also piss me off. From the G&M: Canadian soldier who shot unarmed Taliban avoids jail term. What image does that conjure up for you? For me it implies, “Bad Canadian solider shoots poor unarmed man and gets away with it.” And then there’s this from The Vancouver Sun: Canadian soldier avoids jail in death of Afghan insurgent. Again, this sounds like they’re implying Semrau got away with the murder of a poor “insurgent” (i.e. rebel, freedom fighter).

Am I the only one who thinks, “WTF?” We are at war


I am glad that it was not a dishonourable discharge but that is about it.

Holy Halalambchop!

Waitrose was serving Halal lamb....exclusively....what the heck??

Kind of makes me glad that I have not shopped there much since the very anti-American Thanksgiving article they ran a couple years ago.

Flea says they are now offering their customers "choice" (as in they are not forcing the Halal meat upon them without their knowledge...or so they say).

New Osama Tape Threatens Americans in Europe, Travel Warnings Issued

Watch your six my friends.

via Jawa Report:
Strong concerns that terrorist teams in Europe have selected their targets, completed their surveillance, eluded capture and are now ready to strike at airports and tourist attractions have prompted the State Department to ready a highly unusual travel advisory for Europe, multiple law enforcement and intelligence sources tell ABC News.

Intelligence and law enforcement officials have information that the teams could at any time launch a "Mumbai style" terror attack that targets civilians for death or hostage taking. The 2008 Mumbai attack used small arms and explosives to kill 175 people and paralyze the Indian city for days.

The current concerns are for scenarios that include opening fire at airports in Europe as well as executing similar attacks at "soft" targets like tourist attractions or hotels.


Personally I don't feel the threat is any greater today than it was yesterday. In London one must always be on alert (people should be vigilant, not paranoid). Still the travel alert is very interesting. Read the whole thing at Jawa.

Stay safe friends and fellow travelers : )

Beyond Help: UK Set to enact third party 'I was offended' laws

It creates the controversial legal concept of ‘third party harassment’, under which workers will be able to sue over jokes and banter they find offensive – even if the comments are aimed at someone else and they weren’t there at the time the comments were made.
They can sue if they feel the comments ‘violate their dignity’ or create an ‘intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment’.
A one-off incident is enough to sue – there is no need for the ‘victim’ to have warned the perpetrator that their comments are unwelcome.

They could even have a case against their employer if a customer or contractor says something they find offensive.
One critic suggested employers could have to outlaw office banter to prevent offending anyone.

Wow. DND hosting CIC and 9 11 Truther....*Updated*

Unfortunately I doubt this is an intention keep your enemies closer situation.

I see the last agenda item is a "cultural food tasting", which is probably why they decided to invite Imam Delic of the Canadian Islamic Congress and not Wahida "The Hutt" Valiante, President of the CIC, Chair of Islamic History Month and 911 Troofer!


UPDATE: Government cancels the speakers.
