Overnight Open Thread (9-10-2015) – 14 Years Later Edition

Quote of the Day I

I'm not willing to surrender free speech in any corner of the still just-about-free world. So I'll be in Copenhagen at the end of the month to stand with a small number of truly brave people who don't get a tenth of the support they should either from their fellow Danes or the rest of Europe. Flemming Rose, the commissioning editor of the original Mohammed cartoons, will be there, along with Henryk Broder, who wrote the book Hurra, wir kapitulieren ("Hurray! We surrender" ) about Germany and Islam, and also my old friend from the free-speech barricades Douglas Murray. The event will be held in the Danish Parliament, not because it's a very attractive building but rather, as Douglas explains, "because it's the only place in Denmark sufficiently secure enough that - we hope - the now traditional gunmen won't be able to get in and shoot everyone."

As I've noted before, since I last appeared in Copenhagen, some three-quarters of those I shared the stage with that day have been shot at, firebombed or forced to retire from public life and go into hiding. So Douglas and I find ourselves cornering a market no one else wants a piece of.

-- Mark Steyn

Quote of the Day II

Now we know why Democrats were so insistent somebody had to be cooking the intelligence about Saddam Hussein's WMD's.  It's because that's what they would have done themselves to fit their policy line.

-- Arthur Herman in Cooking the Intelligence on ISIS

Quote of the Day III

The cuckoo is one of the more interesting migrants in the animal kingdom. It spends part of the year in sunny Africa, but nests and breeds in Europe. Cuckoos appropriate the nests of other birds to lay eggs. The lark or dove in turn does not recognize the egg threat and even feeds the cuckoo chicks after they hatch. Eventually, the larger aggressive cuckoo chicks either evict or kill any host offspring.

Brood parasitism features several related behaviors; egg mimicry, egg or chick evictions, or once the cuckoo chick is established, nest fratricide. Still, no cuckoo ever becomes a chickadee.

-- G. Murphy Donovan in Mohammed's Cuckoos

Quote of the Day IV

The Islamic State now has a safe haven and resources of which al Qaeda in 2001 could only have dreamed. Every day we lazily, arrogantly provoke them without finishing the job. No one should be surprised by the consequences, which are as predictable as they are terrible.

-- Aaron MacLean in Manipulated Intel and the Kabuki War against the Islamic State

Al Qaeda Issues List of Americans They'd Like to Kill

The list includes:
  • Ben Bernakek
  • Robert James Shiller
  • Bill Gates
  • Warren Buffet
  • Lawrence Joseph
  • Michael Bloomberg
  • The Koch Brothers
  • Sam Walton
  • Sheldon Adelson

Well they apparently can't spell Bernanke correctly and secondly they obviously don't have wikipedia or they would know that Sam Walton has been running the celestial mega Walmart for quite a while now.

Unicorn Woman Ready to Lose Her Horn

As Xiuzhen cannot sleep, and the tumor bleeds occasionally, doctors are ready to operate and remove the unicorn horn from the woman's head. However, her family is concerned that the 87-year-old may not recover from the surgery and are looking into alternative treatments. Fellow villagers are happy that the surgery has been postponed, feeling that they need more time to come up with a new nickname since calling a hornless Xiuzhen 'horse woman' wouldn't make much sense. Plus, China already has a horned goat woman, so the new moniker will take some creativity.
