Mark Steyn Is Terribly Unimpressed With Solipsistic Non-Binary Grievance-Mongers and Pusillanimous Sharia Appeasers

Have I mentioned lately that I adore Mark Steyn?

Have I mentioned lately that I adore when Mark Steyn whispers sweet nothings in my ear WHOOPS OH DEAR HOW EMBARRASSING SORRY LET'S TRY THAT AGAIN...RIGHT...TAKE TWO:

That is to say, (musters dignity, breathes in and out)...When Mark Steyn mentions me, en passant, in his brilliant essays?

"As Laura Rosen Cohen likes to say, "security" is the new "shut up". A couple more years of this and we'll all be so "secure" no one will say a word. The pathetic capitulation of Queen's reminds us of just how rare and principled was the behavior of the Aussie Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in her visit to Charlie Hebdo on Tuesday. As that Guardian report continues:
Robert McLiam Wilson, the Paris-based author of Ripley Bogle and Eureka Street, described the cancellation of the event in the face of an unspecified security threat as "not cowardice or surrender. It is part of a long defeat in an unfought war."
McLiam Wilson, who writes for the French satirical magazine, said he could not believe that a city like Belfast that had endured decades of violence would call off the conference.
Speaking from his home in Paris, the author, who was born in west Belfast, said: "I am feeling a touch of shame today. Cancelling such an event in the face of putative menace in a city that endured a 30-year torture of self-immolation seems worse than pusillanimous. Belfast? Seriously? This is not the city I remember. This cancellation says, with trumpeting clarity, that there is no debate because there can be no debate. There is a big boat that can't be rocked."

More from Steyn's weekly Hugh Hewitt appearance here. 

Attack of the Leftist Snowflakes and Climate Change Cultists (LAST CHANCE!!! AIYEEEE!!!)

Well done.

"Many human beings, apparently, never quite get over an innate totalitarian impulse. Power is an intoxicant, and shutting down and banishing an opponent—along with any cognitive dissonance they might cause — might be the power equivalent of chugging six beers. But what can we make of the growing campus fetish for “safe spaces”? Like it or not, the world is not a cocoon. How could such cowardice possibly be any fun?




Dr. Knish explains the Differential Diagnosis of "SJW". 

"Are you upset all the time? Do minor things that other people do drive you up the wall? Do you spend all day muttering about unintended petty slights? Do you self-diagnose your own psychiatric disorders?"

"Are you convinced that you’re being oppressed by all the people around you? You’re not just a paranoid schizophrenic. You might also be a Social Justice Warrior."

Speaking of which:

The Climate Change Religion. 

And 14 years of LAST CHANCES!

The Import of Honour Murders to North America

Has Jordan exported anything positive to the New World?

Or, like Pakistan, just this type of thing? 

"A Jordanian immigrant bent on revenge over his daughter's marriage to a Christian killed the female Iranian activist who persuaded her to go through with the marriage, Texas prosecutors allege."

"According to charges filed on Wednesday in Houston against Ali Awad Mahmoud Irsan, he then killed his despised son-in-law about ten months later."

"The Harris County District Attorney's Office revealed Irsan is charged with capital murder in the 2012 shooting deaths of Gelerah Bagherzadeh, 30, and his 28-year-old son-in-law Coty Beavers."
