A Leftist/Jihadi alliance?

Islamic State throws another gay man off a building, crowd stones him

When Pamela Geller and I ran ads highlighting the mistreatment of gays in Islamic law, the San Francisco City Council issued a resolution condemning not that mistreatment, but our ads. 

Gay advocates such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman attacked us for daring to call attention to the institutionalized mistreatment of gays under Islamic law. 

Their gay advocacy doesn’t extend to standing up to Sharia oppression of gays, even though that oppression is far more virulent and violent than anything from “right-wing extremists” in the U.S. 

And you can’t blame them: given the Leftist/jihadist alliance, it’s clear that if they spoke out against Sharia mistreatment of gays, they would no longer be invited to the best parties, and might even be branded as “right-wing.” 

Their moral cowardice and duplicity, however, are obvious.

Justifying "Selma"

Lyndon Johnson was a civil rights hero. But also a racist.

The left never liked LBJ, anyway.

Actually, they hated him.

Ask Bill Ayers and Ms Dohrn.

The Jeremiah Wright of the administration

Eric Holder's parting shot: It's too hard to bring civil rights cases

Gut reaction?

No, it's not.

He and Rev. Al agree.

Do they want the law to follow the standards of liberal media?

White guy shoots black guy; it's racism, case closed.

And Malcolm X?

Really?

Reality based religion

On the same day C&L was shocked to announce both that Franklin Graham does not believe in Allah although he does believe in Jesus and that some Christian groups actively proselytize Jews.

No surprise, I suppose, from people who, out of willful blindness and constant effort, have no idea what the several religions actually teach and believe.

The Cold War was simpler

Franklin Graham: Our Government Has Been ‘Infiltrated By Muslims’

FG is not the first to sound this Cold War theme, substituting "Muslims" for "Communists."

The substitution is not quite fair.

"Islamists" for "Communists" is better, though still not altogether fortunate.

Still, you do have to wonder, not whether there has been "infiltration" but how far it has gone and how much it has mattered.

A reason to prefer Hillary to other Democrats

Clinton leads General, Primary

She beats everybody on the GOP side.

Biden and Warren lose to Jeb Bush.

Etc.

And she way, way leads everybody else among Democrats for the nomination.
