Norway is quickly becoming one of the world’s leading capitals of Jew-hatred.
Pro-Israel author Bruce Bawer says his adopted homeland has willingly opened its arms to embrace Islamic terrorists. And there is a reason for this ideology of hate—radical leftism has a historical stranglehold on Norwegians.
One cannot tell the truth or venture one’s opinion about Islam or about Muslim behaviors without risking being slandered, heckled, censored, sued, impoverished, physically attacked, and, more rarely, murdered.
And that’s for those of us lucky enough to be living in the free West. What happens to dissident and feminist thinkers and writers in Muslim-majority countries is far worse; their bravery continues to inspire me at a very dark moment in history.
The Western punishments are as follows:
Rachel Maddow got very giggly and over-amused last week reporting that some Republicans offered to buy shots in exchange for signatures on a recall petition. She seemed to think it was illegal, or something. Unethical, maybe. Illegal? No. Alcohol is a legal substance and the people offered it were of age. Was it the best strategy? Maybe not, but I’ll give them points for creativity and a go-get ‘em attitude!
What struck me as uproariously funny here is that Democrats invented and perfected bribing people to win elections. That Republicans are finally taking note and getting in the game is only evidence of their arrested development in creative strategy. For decades we’ve been plodding along playing fair and whining when the ballot boxes get stuffed and buses of homeless people are shuttled to the polls and dead people rise from the grave to vote for their favorite Democrat.

Dear Hina Jilani:
Greetings! I am familiar with and an admirer of your work as a Pakistani feminist and human rights lawyer, one who has gone on record opposing both honor killing and rape and the inadequate legislation against such crimes in Pakistan.
In 1999, you handled one very high profile honor killing case, that of a Pakistani woman, Samia Imran (aka Samia Sarwar), whose physician mother and politically powerful father arranged that she be shot to death in your office because she dared to seek a divorce from a dangerously violent Pakistani husband. I wrote about this case in 2004-2005 and have written about it again any number of times since then.

Editor’s note: Crystal Mangum, the woman who falsely accused members of the Duke lacrosse team of raping her in 2006, may now face a murder charge for the fatal stabbing of her boyfriend. This post was originally published on February 20, 2010, just after Mangum’s arrest for arson, child abuse, and attempted murder.
“She was black, they were white, and race and sex were in the air.” That’s how a Washington Post columnist described the atmosphere that led to the brutal gang rape of Crystal Mangum by a group of Duke University lacrosse players in 2006. You remember, right? That was the violent, racially motivated hate crime that never happened.
Mangum is in the news again, but this time she won’t find an army of race-obsessed charlatans, Marxist demagogues, and pandering politicians speeding to her defense. The Left only rolls out that treatment for struggling black single mothers when their harrowing tales bolster an ideological agenda. Pulling off the “virtuous victim of white privilege” shtick won’t be easy when Mangum faces charges of child abuse, arson, and attempted murder.
