Mark Steyn: It's Not An Either/Or Question

Mark Steyn gloriously walks us through the "mentally ill" dhimmi dogsqueeze du jour.

So, this is exactly it: 

"Nevertheless, the preferred explanation is that Brinsley was mentally ill, just like the guy who beheaded a coworker in Oklahoma was mentally ill, and the Sydney bloke who took those hostages at the coffee shop was mentally ill, and the son of the Canadian Refugee Board honcho who killed a soldier at the Canadian War Memorial was mentally ill. They were also all Muslim. Oh, and the fellow in France who ran down 11 people with his car while shouting "Allahu Akbar!" only yesterday has already been pronounced mentally ill. By sheer coincidence, he was Muslim, too."

"Is this one of those parlor games - like "Dead or Canadian?" Or "Gay or European?" Don't forget, if you're playing in the western media's daily Nothing-to-See-Here quiz, in the "Crazy or Muslim?" round the correct answer is "Crazy", every time."

"These are not mutually incompatible categories: There are dead Canadians, and gay Europeans, and crazy Muslims. To get people to march in the streets shouting "What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!" is relatively easy. To persuade Al Sharpton's swaggering halfwit goons to act on their slogans is another matter. A person has to be suggestible, and there's an accumulation of evidence that in today's world disaffected young Muslim men are the most easily suggestible of all. Whether they're suggestible because they're Muslim or they're Muslim because they're suggestible is one of those chicken-or-egg conundrums."

OK, so jihad, civilizational decline and implosion yada yada yada BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH, zzzzzzz. 

The more important thing of course is that Mark Steyn is going to be live in Toronto on Wednesday January 28th! 

Coming to see me of course! 

Oh, OK fine, it's not exactly to see me, but rather to have an intimate conversation with a few hundred people and Chapters-Indigo CEO Heather Reisman about his new book and presumably to sell books-but that's pretty much totally the same thing, right? 

(Don't answer that...just let me run with the coming to see me ruse, mmmmmkay?!?!?)

Anyway, it's going to be LOTS of fun. 

The live appearances, as evil skeeeekrit Jew Kathy Draidlebaum says are kind of like a Steynian "revival". 

It's so true, you see lots of repeat groupies adoring fans SteynFrau respectable individuals such as myself at the live shows and we all have a blast. However, it's an infidel kind of blast, which therefore involves no explosives, but rather wit and wisdom, civility and Mark Steyn's lovely sartorial selections. 

Typically, the shows are a tragicomic mix of hilarity and societal despair, laugh, cry, laugh, cry, laugh till you cry, etc...

You do not want to miss it if you are in the general vicinity of Toronto on January 28th, 2015.
