Thanks, Leo, for educating us bumpkins. It’s helpful when Hollywood celebrities, experts in all the important stuff, lecture us on whether we want to protect our children. These “liberals”, more accurately termed “Progressives” or “Leftists” since they increasingly lack any resemblance to truly liberal thinking, believe that the ordinary person who doesn’t believe in global warming hates the planet and is indifferent to their own offspring’s prospects for survival. How dumb am I, and how dumb are you?
Designers of the app say it can be used to “report, locate and avoid hazardous locations around you and elsewhere”, and has already gained positive review ratings. The app allows users to report assaults, thefts, sexual molestation, and “rudeness” in the capital city which has seen illegal migrants camping on the streets and near metro stations.
Parisian women have complained they face constant harassment from migrants in certain parts of the city. Women in the east Paris district of Chapelle-Pajol claim they cannot leave their homes without receiving verbal abuse from migrants and drug dealers who have flooded to the area.
Democrats have lost the White House and Congress. Their statewide losses are catastrophic. But the institutional strength of the left has only grown stronger. Each Democrat defeat hollows out the party but increases the power and influence of the left to move the party in an undemocratic direction.
The defeats have elevated the roles of the left’s unelected power bases from the judiciary to the media to academia to the bureaucracy and the non-profit sector. These are the core of the “Resistance”. The mission of the “Resistance” is not to plan for a future democratic victory, but an undemocratic coup.
Like frogs, who are incapable of detecting the smooth, slow approach of a snake because their eyes are only adapted to see the quick movements of flies, western nations seem unable to see the infiltration of their homelands by an insidious ideology whose sworn goal is to destabilize, out-populate, overwhelm, and conquer them.
Regardless of what you think about President Trump (and who doesn’t), his rejection of the Paris climate agreement is both sensible and legal. The agreement did not bind its signatories to actually take any specific action to reduce emissions, and it was never an instrument with binding legal authority in the U.S. anyway.
The next Islamic terror attack happened this week at a large concert arena in Manchester, the second largest city in the UK. The bomber, Salman Abedi, had in recent years raised numerous suspicions of having become radicalized but wasn’t believed an immediate threat. Beyond the obvious tragedy of innocent concert goers being brutally murdered is the unnecessary travesty of politicians and media figures saying we must become accustomed to terror as well as be especially focused on Islamophobia.
In the United States ABC proclaimed its primary concern to be an anti-Muslim backlash, while the BBC advised that Europeans simply needed to get used to these attacks. Prime Minister Teresa May promised to “defeat the ideology that often fuels this violence” but did not name the ideology she was referring to.
But investigating or preventing terrorism is extremely difficult in Manchester, as Daniel Greenfield of Frontpage astutely explains. The administrative blowback and stigma associated with law enforcement or political leaders being perceived as “islamophobic” has become an almost insuperable barrier.
