Overnight Open Thread (11-18-2015)

Quote of the Day I - It's Because of Poverty and Global Warming Edition

"It must be incredibly frustrating as an Islamic terrorist not to have your views and motives taken seriously by the societies you terrorize, even after you have explicitly and repeatedly stated them,"

-- Iraqi writer Faisal Saeed Al Mutar

Quote of the Day II

In essence, the American Secretary of State just announced before the world that he could grasp why the woman in the short skirt was raped but that he had been left scratching his head by the attack on the woman in the pantsuit and the overcoat. "Sure," he said, "I get why they knocked off the hate speakers, but why would they go after progressive kids at a concert? Now things are really serious."

-- Charles Cooke

Quote of the Day III

Hey - if you're a Unique and Special Snowflake(TM) who can't deal with life in the jug, there are ways to stay out, ways that have been pioneered by 99 repeating percent of society since time immemorial. These prison-avoidance strategies are generally centered on not committing felonies. It's so easy even most of your fellow mixed-up, tossed-up, never-come-down trannies do it, which is why you're so ronery and so awfuwwy arone in Castle Leavenwolf.

-- WeaponsMan

Quote of the Day IV

If there's one thing you take away from the Daily Californian essay, it's the pursed-lip'd narrow-eyed glare of someone who is being forced to sit in a room and NOT BE VALIDATED. (Some of the complainants may be angry because they are witnessing the non-validation of others and are compelled to be enraged on their behalf.) College, apparently, is now a place where the notions of people freshly matriculated from high school must be handled with oven mitts and lightly buffed with soft cloth lest their orthodoxies suffer the slightest abrasion. Like the school that canceled the annual performance of The Vagina Monologues because it othered non-traditional women who lacked the titular orifice, it's a delightful example of leftist autophagy. Marx is in foul order in Berkeley not for his ideas, or the heaps of corpses accumulated in his name, but because he had a prostate.

By the way, Foucault died of AIDS, so you can dismiss everything the students wrote. Homophobes and haters. No, kids, don't bother defending yourselves. As your heroes would no doubt say: If it wasn't true, we wouldn't have accused you.

-- James Lileks

Quote of the Day V - Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose Edition

Harvard and Yale are the products of Old New England, which has something to teach in this regard. In 1692 a witch craze swept Salem, Massachusetts, triggered in part by hysterical children, fed by stern divines who sincerely believed in witchcraft, and permitted by a community too terrorized to stand up for due process, let alone prevent hangings and, in one case, the crushing of an innocent man to death by heavy stones because he refused to confess to an absurd, imaginary crime. There is something not entirely different going on today.

-- Eliot Cohen


"F*ck you, you filthy white f*cks!", "F*ck your white tears."

So #BlackLivesMatter activists go on a racist rampage through a Dartmouth library and harass and push around students for various racial crimes including wearing oppressive branded headphones.

And what was the response of a Dartmouth vice-provost to this? Why to apologize to the thugs for their less than stellar media coverage.

At a community discussion in Cutter-Shabazz on Monday night, several students voiced concerns over portrayals of Thursday's protest, particularly in The Dartmouth Review and on Yik Yak.

Vice provost for student affairs Inge-Lise Ameer was in attendance at the meeting, and she apologized to students who engaged in the protest for the negative responses and media coverage that they have received.

"There's a whole conservative world out there that's not being very nice," Ameer said.

These are all bad people who will do bad things if they are not stopped. Academia delenda est.

And VDH takes an ax to the whole idea that universities are in any way special in The University Gone Feral.

Sweet, Sweet Schadefreude

University of Missouri graduate students, including hunger strike protester Jonathan Butler, have been protesting on campus in part because of cuts to the students' health-care coverage as a result of Obama administration's Affordable Care Act.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the cutbacks were explained in detail on an August posting on the school's website, which said Obamacare's regulations banned employers, like universities, from paying for their grad students' health insurance.

Graduate students would have to buy insurance in individual markets as a result of not being eligible for the insurance plan offered to MU staff and faculty.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported that the Internal Revenue Service posted a bulletin offering guidance on this issue and threatened "severe" penalties for noncompliance.

Well Obama supporters - you got what you wanted so you better damn well eat the whole shit sandwich.

Hillary Sends Her Flying Monkeys After Comedians Who Had The Temerity To Joke About Her

And if she'd threaten and demand the names and personal info of a few no-name comedians who made fun of her, just imagine what she'd do once she has the full power of the presidency. She truly is a horrible human being. And horrible human beings do evil things if they're allowed to.

According to Obama Americans Are In fact Un-American

President Obama says that those who don't agree with his policy are unAmerican. If that is true, just about all Americans are unAmerican. A recent Rasmussen survey asked: "How many refugees from Syria and other Middle Eastern countries should the government allow to come here?" The choices were zero, 10k, 25k, 50k, 65k, 100k, 100+ or unsure. The winner? Zero, at 49%. 20% said 10,000. How many support Obama's determination to admit 100,000 Syrian refugees? Just about none. Only 7% support admitting 100,000 not just from Syria, but from all Middle Eastern countries.

Time to import a new populace who can be the Americans Obama always hoped for.

Contrary to Obama's claim, US Has A History of Admitting Refugees Based on Faith

This Flag Has Reappeared in Germany

And it may or may not be a good thing for Germany but it is most definitely bad for Angela Merkel.

Paul Anka - Son of Syrian Immigrants

Sharkman posted this comment the other day:

510 In an odd coincidence, Steyn's Song of the Week post for today mentions that Sinatra's classic "My Way" was written in part by Paul Anka.
The Anka family patriarch lynched an unpunished child rapist, then fled to the US. Of Lebanese-Syrian extraction, the lynching family received its Surname of Anka (which means "noose" ) from an immigration official who mistook the lynching story for a reference to their family name.
Wow.
Posted by: Sharkman at November 16, 2015 10:04 PM (I3RZp)

And the ONT Truth Squad status of this story is: TRUE.

In fact it appears directly in Anka's 2013 biography My Way: An Autobiography:

Why Concealed Carriers Matter - Even Against Teams of AK-47-Wielding Terrorists

The point of returning fire, of have the 'ability' to return fire, is not to magically have one armed citizen kill five terrorists armed with full auto AK's.

The point of returning fire, any fire at all is . RETURNING FIRE. It is "disruptive," and it takes total operational control away from the terrorists.

Any return fire at all disrupts their plans and denies them complete freedom of movement and action. Because even suicidal terrorists tend to not want to die just this very moment.

Ian McKellen: Bible Vandal

Is it true that when you stay at hotels you tear out the Bible page that condemns homosexuality?

Ian McKellen: I do, absolutely. I'm not proudly defacing the book, but it's a choice between removing that page and throwing away the whole Bible. And I'm not really the first: I got delivered a package of 40 of those pages - Leviticus 18:22 - that had been torn out by a married couple I know. They put them on a bit of string so that I could hang it up in the bathroom.
