Gates of Vienna News Feed 12/5/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 12/5/2010A state legislator here in Virginia has proposed a sweeping new law that would go farther than any previous effort to rein in Congress’ abuse of the Commerce Clause in the Constitution. Other states have passed laws specifically declaring firearms made and sold within the state to be beyond the reach of the federal government. Delegate Mark Cole, however, has taken it a step further, applying the same principle to all products made and sold within the Commonwealth of Virginia.

In other news, in the face of increased attacks by Muslim zealots, Christians in Baghdad are beginning to flee the city and take refuge in Kurdistan. Meanwhile, researchers in the UK report that human rights laws imposed by the EU cost the country an estimated £2 billion per annum.

  1. Four Dutch-Moroccan women, Rabea, Zohra, Ibtisam and Saïda, were all sexually abused by members of their families: their fathers, uncles, brothers or cousins.

    After years of silence, they have decided to speak out because they know that many other Muslim women suffer the same fate. A care worker: “Taboos, secrecy, silence, shame and a closed community are almost a recipe for sexual abuse.”

    Hey, wasn’t there a column from the Gndauria in the News Feed the other day, in which its author asked something along the lines of “how can a member of the Danish parliament say things like ‘when those girls don’t get murdered by their fathers and brothers, they get raped by their uncles’ about muslims, and not be forced to resign immediately”? Facts to Gauidnar monkey: your little PC/MC dogmas don’t have a leg to stand on, and it’s clear that you’d probably love to see that muslim abuse to continue without any sort of criticism, let alone action to stop it.
