Who will win the Snowflakes* vs ISIS confrontation?

Note: This was written before the latest California shootings

So will ISIS respect the Snowflakes’s “safe spaces” and refrain from exercising free speech?  Doubtful.  Source: Freedom Of Speech? Not Important To 40% Of This Group

We asked whether people believe that citizens should be able to make public statements that are offensive to minority groups, or whether the government should be able to prevent people from saying these things. Four-in-ten Millennials say the government should be able to prevent people publicly making statements that are offensive to minority groups… …the 40% who oppose it is striking given that only around a quarter of Gen Xers (27%) and Boomers (24%) and roughly one-in-ten Silents (12%) say the government should be able to prevent such speech.

Both ISIS and the Snowflakes are nuts, but the juxtaposition is so extreme.  How morbidly ironic that both are flexing their muscles at the same time.  I’d say, “Pass the popcorn!,” except this won’t be pretty.

*Snowflakes = Those Millennials who are so thin-skinned and wimpy that they can’t have anyone express views that they don’t like.  Now stop reading this and go give them another sticker!

Ann Coulter files hate speech claim against Canadian university —  where you can speak your mind as long as no one (on the Left) gets offended.  Coming soon to a country near you!

Hillary Clinton is OK with abortions, just not gender-selection abortions — but if they don’t kill innocent human beings, why does the motive count?  (hat tip: Chance)

Great summary on the health care debacle by Marshall.

I should be overjoyed at ACORN calling it quits, but they are obviously just changing their names and reorganizing.  They won’t go far, and they’ll still get their funding.

Bart Stupak and the myth of the “pro-life Democrat” — I can’t tell you how many “pro-life Democrats” I know who voted for Obama, the most pro-abortion President ever.

False teacher considers taxpayer-funded abortions to being part of a “beloved community” — no surprise there.

Did everyone sign the health care bill? You know I did!

Seriously,  I will grant that Obama & Co. do a much better job of influencing people than the Republicans.  It is proven — though not that well known — that even getting people to do small gestures like signing a document or donating $5 dramatically increases their commitment to a candidate or program (even a horrible, horrible candidate/program like this one).

Yes, Virginia, there really is a website called www.dogflatulence.com.  My wife discovered it when trying to solve the problem one of our dogs has.  My oldest daughter had a coffee mug made for my wife with this picture plus the name of the web site.  Best. Valentine’s Day Present. Ever.

(The tips didn’t work for the dog.  She’s hopeless.  Maybe they will for your dog!)

Coming soon to a country near you: What do you think of the 2nd Amendment

A Canadian columnist has his door practically beaten down by Toronto’s stormtrooping police because he had a 30-year-old bird rifle that he forgot to re-register. America THIS is coming to YOUR door if the left gets its way in banning guns.

The evils of “heterosexism” — your [United Methodist] apportionment dollars at work — it is endlessly disgusting that people who teach the opposite of Jesus take the money of authentic followers and promote nonsense like this.

Get your pro-choice license plates here!  Note the typical way they never complete the sentence: “Trust women.”  Uh, to do what, exactly?

More coming soon to a country near you: U.K.’s Conservative Leader Pledges Full Support to Gay Agenda — lots of creepy quotes. 

“right of gay children to have a safe education trumps the right of faith schools to teach that homosexuality is a sin”

Note the false dichotomy.  Teaching the truth about homosexual behavior being a sin does not mean gays can’t have a safe education.  Using that “logic,” Michelle Obama is responsible every time an overweight kid gets bullied and AA is responsible every time a drunk gets beat up. 

Religious schools, they have said, must not teach Christian doctrine on sexuality “as though it is true.”

Asked his stand on the Christian marriage registrar who was sacked for refusing to perform homosexual civil partnership ceremonies, Cameron said that “faith-based organizations and charities” should be encouraged: “As long as they are not discriminating in any way in the services that they provide, you’re fine.”

“I mean, I think, yes. I think….. [long pause] that if our Lord Jesus was around today he would very much be backing a strong agenda on equality and equal rights, and not judging people on their sexuality.”

Don’t you love lessons about Jesus from guys like this?  I’d love to quiz him to see how much he really knows about what Jesus taught.

Campaign financing

The solution to campaign finance reform is more transparency, not in suppression of free speech. 

One of the most irritating hypocrisies in the State of the Union speech was President Obama’s attack on the Supreme Court.  Even if McCain-Feingold was meritorious it was still un-Constitutional, and the Court’s role is to decide the Constitutionality of laws and court decisions.  If Obama doesn’t like the Constitution as is, there is a process to amend it.  He shouldn’t shoot the messenger.

Worse yet is the fact that his campaign had incredible amounts of illegal contributions:

Nonetheless, if Obama really is concerned about foreign campaign donations, then Obama should request that Attorney General Eric Holder (or an Acting Attorney General since Holder likely has a conflict) appoint a special counsel with the power to investigate, and if justified, prosecute violations of the laws, and conspiracies to violate the laws, forbidding foreign contributions.

And the place the special counsel can start is with Obama’s 2008 campaign, which disabled security features in its credit card web portal so as to allow donors to evade restrictions on numerous aspects of the federal campaign laws, including the prohibition on foreign contributions:

Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor’s identity, campaign officials confirmed….

The problem with such cards, campaign finance lawyers said, is that they make it impossible to tell whether foreign nationals, donors who have exceeded the limits, government contractors or others who are barred from giving to a federal campaign are making contributions.That the Obama campaign received foreign donations as a result of this scheme may be the only thing agreed-upon by both Pamela Geller and Charles Johnson. Indeed, Obama for America has admitted receiving foreign contributions. The fact that the Federal Election Commission is not investigating the allegations necessitates a special counsel. Nonetheless, if Obama really is concerned about foreign campaign donations, then Obama should request that Attorney General Eric Holder (or an Acting Attorney General since Holder likely has a conflict) appoint a special counsel with the power to investigate, and if justified, prosecute violations of the laws, and conspiracies to violate the laws, forbidding foreign contributions.

Will someone please take Pat Robertson’s microphone away?  Thanks. 

Seriously, it would be for his own good.  One should be very, very careful in claiming to speak for God.  The safe way is to quote the Bible, in context.  God could judge any person and any country at any time for the evils that go on today, including the U.S. 

How secular leftists restrict free speech on college campuses — the thin-skinned PC police are out of control on college campuses.  In just a generation they went from bastions of free speech to shameless oppressors.  They are beyond parody.

California Is Moving On from ESCR (Embryonic Stem Cell Research) — how many billions of dollars and human beings were wasted?  As pro-lifers said all along, experimenting on human beings is immoral and the real promise was in adult stem cells.  We were right and are still right. 

U.K. Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg is wooing the vote of British homosexuals by stating  that his party (the third largest party in the U.K.) would legislate that all faith schools in the UK would be legally obliged to teach their students that homosexuality is normal and without any risk to physical or mental health.In an interview with the gay lifestyle magazine Attitude, Clegg outlined a number of proposals to advance ‘”gay rights” in the UK, including forcing all schools, including faith-based schools, to implement anti-homophobia bullying policies and to teach that homosexuality is “normal and harmless.”

Clegg said that faith schools must not become “asylums of insular religious identity.”

Let’s see: Harry Reid says opposing the health care bill it is akin to promoting slavery, yet his party favors public funding of abortions for the poor?  Hey Harry, black human beings are already destroyed at a rate three times that of whites.  Isn’t that high enough for you, and isn’t that the real racism?

Why does the RNC just oppose government funded abortions in their purity test?  I realize that the issue in the health care bill is front and center, but let’s not forget that all abortions kill an innocent human being. 

Christian man fired after gay rights group contacts his employer to complain — Your freedoms are eroding at a rapid rate, people. 

More on Kevin Jennings, the most ironically titled Czar of them all.  What a sick freak. 

He is Barack Obama’s Safe Schools Czar.

He is a supporter of men who openly and vocally support pedophilia.

. . .

Kevin Jennings, however, is not just a gay man, but a man who believes in the full gay rights agenda, where men and boys can have sexual relationships free of prudish moral people frowning.

Jennings has championed NAMBLA’s [the North American Man Boy Love Association] causes and lauded a pedophilia advocate.

He even wrote the forward to a book called “Queering Elementary Education.” That’s right, Jennings wrote the forward to a book that, in its own description advocates the aggressive homosexual agenda among elementary school students. From the book: “queering education happens when we look at schooling upside down and view childhood from the inside out.” No irony is intended apparently in that description.

Americans of moral decency should be stunned to know the President of the United States would put in charge of “safe schools,” a man who encourages predatory relationships between young boys and grown men.

Barack Obama has done exactly that. Has he no shame?

And here are some of the tips from GLSEN, which Jennings led for many years.  This group is one of the most vile and perverse I’ve come across, because they target children. 

Also read the Washington Posts’s Obama’s Buggery Czar — Jennings’ group made sex between children and adults look normal.

People who support organizations like Planned Parenthood  or GLSEN are spectacularly evil and/or ignorant.

Visit Certain News Sites? Obama Wants To Know — Why isn’t the ACLU going nuts over this?

Big Brother Obama wants to know what news sites you visit. And he is having the justice department subpoena news sites to find out.

The world is upside down, morally speaking.  Newsweek: Terrorist Attack on Fort Hood was bad because it will spark conservative hatred

13 soldiers died at Fort Hood, and Newsweek’s Evan Thomas is concerned about “right wing fears.”

Appearing on NPR, he said, “I cringe that he’s a Muslim. I mean, because it inflames all the fears.”

NPR’s Nina Totenberg agreed, saying, “It really is tragic that he was a Muslim.”

Oh, really? I thought it was tragic that he killed 13 people.

Would it be better if he was an anti-abortion activist, so that you could inflame left wing fears about “domestic terrorism”?

Multiple lies from Obama & Co. on abortion and the health care bill — They don’t care what pro-lifers say.  They have every intention of sneaking it back into the bill.  This would not be the status quo, it would be the first time Federal funds would be used to pay for abortions.  Obama always claimed the bill wouldn’t cover abortions, so why does he oppose the Stupak amendment?

I know pro-aborts really like abortion, but does it ever bother them to have to lie so much to get their way?  Apparently not.

Over 90% of Down Syndrome children still being aborted — Tragic.  Morally schizophrenic and tragic.

I love when atheists bring up the “Jesus didn’t exist argument.” It is so easy to use the minimal facts approach and put the burden back on them.

I just point to the virtually unanimous position of historical scholars who agree that he lived. If the atheists want to form positions in opposition to historical facts then that is their problem. It quickly disarms them.

I also like to point out how even skeptics like the Jesus Seminar concede so many of the minimal facts. To come up with the theory that Jesus’ body was eaten by dogs, people like John Dominic Crossan unwittingly point to the significant evidence for not only the resurrection but the empty tomb. I submit that the physical resurrection accounts for the same facts Crossan appears to trust. I just find that the resurrection is a much more logical explanation.
