1. Two dozen thought dead in Iraq after suicide attack on ministry
2. Iraqi forces seem to celebrate the death of a terrorist. Notice the lack of allah hu ackbar chants as well as the diverse things they do chant.
3. On January 27th in France, an amazing march took place of 17,000 people chanting and marching for secularism and a return to French values for France. It was truly something. Sadly, at the end of the march, something like 150 dough headed Nazis mixed with Dieudonne fans marched at the back of the throng chanting against Jews and in favor of gas chambers. Sadly, some media, including some Jewish media, dishonestly reported the event making it look like it was all about antisemitism and not what it really was. The video below was the tail end of the march, taking advantage of the massive crowd that was there for the right reasons.
Below, a more accurate video showing what the march was actually about. Anti Hollande, pro family, and anti easy abortion etc. I hope to post more on this later today, showing what the march was really about.
Yes, the people at the end chanting anti Jew and pro-Gas chamber slogans are disappointing at best and horrifying for many. But if it was 150 idiots hitching a ride at a march of 17,000 right minded people, its important to keep a perspective. I would say it was a wildly excellent event.
5. Richard Lamm, a liberal Democrat gave this speech in 2004. Worth a look.
Thank you M, Susan Victoria, C.B. Sashenka, Wrath of Khan, ML, Tundra T, and more. I will have more to say on the French demo later today. It is an important issue to not let a few morons destroy something major and something good. A few bad apples doesn’t have to spoil the bunch unless you decide it did and throw them out anyway. Not good for the people who need the apples.
