When the Response to Offense is Physical Violence

Okay. Check out this video:

(From VerumSerum by way of NRO)

It’s the aftermath of somebody attacking the Swedish artist who drew this picture. (Natch, I use the term “artist” loosely. No, I couldn’t do better—we’ll see in nine days—but you don’t have to be good to have your own opinion. After all, look at Keith Olbermann.)

What we have here is an observant of the Religion of Peace attacking somone for having drawn a (crappy, albeit) picture of the Prophet Muhammed. I echo blogger John Sexton’s characterization of the audience’s reaction as being a good source for the “creeps”: Chants of “Allahu Ackbar”.

While I understand and respect that my Occidental colleague and many commenters passionately disagree with Bruce and me about the event (and they have a very good argument), this sort of nonesense demonstrates precisely why I support it.

That the offense of a religion (in the year 2010, need I remind you?) results in physical violence is the clearest sign that this sect needs to be dragged, kicking and screaming (and apparently head-butting) if necessary, into the 21st Century (or at least the 19th). That may sound insensitive of me to say, but I’d rank it below heat-butting somebody, and definitely not even in the same solar system as a suicide bomber.

The day has arrived! The NASCAR Hall of Fame grand opening ceremonies are taking place in Uptown Charlotte as I type. PatriotPartner and I are thrilled to be here as a part of history for NASCAR and our city.

I’ll update things on the ground all day via my Twitter feed on our right-hand sidebar.

Is The Gay SCOTUS Seat Being Filled?

Hey, since Queerty.com and our friend Andrew Sullivan have “gone all in” by declaring Elena Kagan a lesbian (frankly, I have no idea or not…. nor do I care)….

It is no more of an empirical question than whether she is Jewish. We know she is Jewish, and it is a fact simply and rightly put in the public square. If she were to hide her Jewishness, it would seem rightly odd, bizarre, anachronistic, even arguably self-critical or self-loathing. And yet we have been told by many that she is gay … and no one will ask directly if this is true and no one in the administration will tell us definitively.

….then I’m playing this card:  IF she is, is she actually filling the homosexual Supreme Court seat left vacant since last year? 

Oh come on, you never heard of the David Souter gay talk?  Where have you been?  In the same crowd of women that pine for Anderson Cooper…. or the Village People?  Sheesh.

Again, my big question is why does Obama think that being a lesbian is such a bad thing?  His White House indicated as much when Kagan’s name first surfaced after Justice Stevens announced his retirement.

Why is the White House treating lesbian rumors like allegations of vampiric necrophilia? When CBS republished a column repeating the rumor that possible Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is a lesbian, the White House responded furiously. Because lesbians are terrible?

The White House press office blew up. Anita Dunn said: “The fact that they’ve chosen to become enablers of people posting lies on their site tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010.” Spokesman Ben LaBolt said the column “made false charges.”

On this topic, I find myself agreeing with Andrew Sullivan (yes, End of Days is nigh).  (h/t – Instapundit)

 Is Obama actually going to use a Supreme Court nominee to advance the cause of the closet (as well as kill any court imposition of marriage equality)? And can we have a clear, factual statement as to the truth? In a free society in the 21st Century, it is not illegitimate to ask. And it is cowardly not to tell.

What are we afraid of, people?  And by “people”…. I mean President Obama and his Gay Leftist Lickspittles. 

The new Democrat slogan: “Live by Identity Politics…. Die by Identity Politics.”
