1, The Dalai Lama goes off script, rejoins reality, says migrants should go home.

The State Department issued a travel alert Tuesday to Americans who plan to travel to Europe this summer, warning that there is a risk of potential terrorist attacks throughout the region.
“The large number of tourists visiting Europe in the summer months will present greater targets for terrorists planning attacks in public locations, especially at large events,” says the alert, which is in effect through the end of August.
Specifically, the State Department is warning Americans about travel to the European Soccer Championship from June 10 to July 10 in France. The alert also mentions that France extended its state of emergency to cover the Tour de France cycling race from July 2 to July 24.
(So the executive branch wants Europe to take all the muslims that wash up on the shore, and the State Dept. is warning Americans that as a consequence of all the muslims in Europe the threat of terror is serious CONTINENT WIDE. Amazing. Truly amazing)
Washington: Sana Hamze knew it would be controversial when she asked The Citadel, the historic military college in South Carolina, for an exception to the uniform rule: She wanted to wear a hijab because of her faith.
“I knew it would be an uproar, just because of how Muslims are portrayed in the media now,” she said. But she was surprised how soon word leaked out that an accepted student had requested a religious accommodation and how intense the reaction was.
It made national headlines and generated debate about religious freedom, corps unity and the ideals of a system that requires uniforms to encourage cadets to work together and judge one another on character and leadership rather than individual preferences, habits and surface traits. Some talked about whether traditions were upheld because they embodied fundamental values or just because it had always been that way.
The 17 year old from Florida said she wants to be an officer in the US Navy, so a military college seemed like a great first step toward that goal, she said. And not wearing hijab was not an option, given her beliefs.
After The Citadel announced that it would not grant her request, she told the commandant that she did not think it was fair that she had to choose between her religion and her education there, she said.
(How confusing. Did she wear a head-cloth when she applied? I would guess no or they would have told her then and there that there is a uniform she has to wear. So like we have heard in many other similar stories, a muslim applies for a position, gets it, then demands the ‘right’ to force everyone else to change to suit her sudden need to wear islamic crap all over the place. I have 2 words for her.)
5. Remember the guy who attacked a military recruitig center with a knife in Toronto recently? And the government and media as usual, did everything they could to remove any Islamic motive?
Thank you ML., M., Richard, Johnny U., Wrath of Khan, Xanthippa, GQC., and all who contributed and apologies to those I lost track of. Its been a busy day with a LOT more in the oven. Stand by and check back later tonight as well.
Dalrymple: Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.
And then we have this:
