Durka Durka Mohammed Jihad!

The following video shows a devotee of the Religion of Peace expressing his ire at a kafir who evidently said something derogatory about Mohammed Pbuh. I don’t know anything further, except that the fellow is probably in Germany, since he is speaking in German.

The most entertaining part is when the offended believer beats his chest with his fists like a gorilla. Miss Piggy calls this act the “Full Durka Retard”.

Homeless or Not??

Before her fibromyalgia became so severe that she had to quit working, Dymphna’s final job was at a charitable organization that helped mentally ill people, many of them homeless. This week’s edition of Dymphna’s Greatest Hits (from September 2009) draws on that work experience.

Homeless or Not??

by Dymphna
Originally published on September 29, 2009

The story below has been on my mind ever since it arrived via email a few weeks ago.

First, I’ll present just the story itself, which my friend thought amusing (as did all the commenters at the site). After you read it and decide for yourself what this situation is about, I’ll give my interpretation of the events. Having saved our email exchange, I’ll also give my friend’s arguments against my interpretation.

Several blogs posted this when it first appeared. Unfortunately, I no longer remember where I ran across their posts, though I do remember they drew the same conclusion as my friend, i.e. that it was simply a weird amusing story from Kansas:

A man and woman decided to give the phrase “Dumpster diving” a new twist over the weekend, crawling inside one on North Waco so they could be alone.

But while they were engaged in what Wichita police described as “an intimate moment,” they were robbed by a man armed with a pocket knife.

It all unfolded shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday in the 700 block of North Waco, police said, when the man and woman, both 44, crawled into the trash container for privacy.

A short time later, a 59-year-old man and his 64-year-old companion interrupted the couple inside the trash container.

With the older man encouraging him, the 59-year-old man pulled out a pocket knife and took shoes, jewelry and the 44-year-old man’s wallet.

Police were notified, and officers found the two suspects a short time later. The stolen property was recovered.

Okay, there you have the bare facts. I looked around for more details, but none were to be had. Thus, we’ll have to go with what we’ve got here.

How did you read this story?

Here’s my response to my friend:

Thanks for sending this (I think). It made me immensely sad.

I felt so sorry for all of those people. They were like something out of a Flannery O’Connor short story. Degraded and such casual evil.

The couple must’ve been homeless. And the villains don’t sound any better off.

I’m not sure I’m up to reading the comments about them unless there is some compassion somewhere in them. Is there?

My friend didn’t agree with my interpretation at all. He wrote back:

I doubt that they are homeless.

Remember that the thieves got away with jewelry and a wallet.

And most homeless people don’t call the cops when something happens. If anyone was homeless, I think it was the robbers.

As I read his reply, the time I’d spent working with homeless people came flooding back in full Technicolor. I intuitively knew that these were not only homeless people but likely from that class of homeless known as “the ambulatory mentally ill”.

The fate of these folks is the result of legislation going back to Kennedy’s era, when the enlightened elite decided to open the doors of our mental institutions and send patients back into their communities to be cared for by local folks. Of course this novel legislation, which eventually created “Community Service Boards” who would oversee the mentally ill, was another case of unfunded or underfunded federal do-goodism. If you think ObamaCare is a good idea, just look at federal mandates as they apply to CSBs. It would be funny if it didn’t damage so many people. And if the dedicated staff at your local CSB didn’t have so few resources to help the walking weirdoes (as other homeless people call them).

This report [pdf], by Kaiser, is overly optimistic in my view:

Killing While Crazy

In the following interview from French TV, a woman named Nicole Belloubet discusses the possibility that “lone wolf” Islamic terrorists may be mentally ill.

From Wikipedia:

Nicole Belloubet (born 15 June 1955) is a French jurist and politician serving as Minister of Justice since 2017. She was appointed by President Emmanuel Macron after the resignation of François Bayrou. She previously was appointed to the Constitutional Council in 2013 by Jean-Pierre Bel, President of the Senate.

If I follow her reasoning in this clip, people who attack others with knives or guns while shouting “Allahu Akhbar” are mentally ill; therefore they are not criminally responsible for their actions, and can’t be prosecuted.

If France is like most of the rest of Western Europe, these mujahideen who evade prosecution due to being crazy will be sent for a brief stint in a loony bin before being declared “rehabilitated” and released back into society.

A Knife Rampage in Villejuif

Last Friday a man with a knife stabbed three people in a French park, killing one and wounding the other two, before being shot dead by police. The attack took place in a southern suburb of Paris called Villejuif (which I gloss as “Jewtown”, although no Jews are known to reside in the district).

The murderer was a recent convert to Islam. He was carrying a Koran in his backpack, and reportedly shouted “Allahu Akhbar” at the police, but was said in media reports to have shown no signs of “radicalization”. His family said that he had a history of mental illness.

The two videos below discuss the Jewtown Stabber’s Ball in the Hautes-Bruyères park. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

The first video is a brief news report about the stabbings in the park:

The second video reports that another passerby would have become a fourth victim, except for the fact that he was able to prove he was a Muslim, and thus his life was spared:

GrandmaGate Scandal Engulfs Germany

On Monday I reported on a propaganda song recorded by the German state broadcaster WDR2 (West Deutsch Rundfunk 2, West German Broadcasting 2). The boys at WDR used a children’s choir to create a little ditty pushing action to stop “climate change”. The children in the choir sang an irritating song about “Grandma”, whom they labeled “an old environmental pig”.

Well. The invasion of hundreds of thousands of third-world migrants is not enough to get ordinary German citizens to take to the streets. Not even if those culture-enrichers engage in rape, assault, robbery, arson, and other forms of general mayhem. But insulting their grandmas — that’s going too far!

The first video below is a news report about the controversy caused by the anti-grandma song, and the way it is being exploited by right-wing extremists. The second video shows a protest in front of WDR’s offices in Cologne by offended grandmas and their supporters. Antifa shock troops were present in force, to make sure those Nazi grandmas didn’t get out of line.

Culture-Enriching Knife Fight in a Church in Saxony

Two culture-enrichers got into a knife fight inside a church in a small town in Saxony. When a church volunteer tried to intervene, he was stabbed.

In the news reports below, you’ll notice that the efforts of the reporters and members of the community are primarily focused on denying or downplaying the negative effect that Muslim migrants have on their community, and also on making sure that the incident is not exploited to help the “extreme right”.

Also note: The AfD is often falsely described as a “neo-Nazi” party in the media, but the NPD (Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands, National Democratic Party of Germany) is the real deal. If any party deserves to be labeled neo-Nazi, it is the NPD. I’m told that roughly a third of its membership, including much of the leadership, consists of infiltrators inserted by German intelligence.

Below is an article from Bild about the same incident, also translated by MissPiggy:

Volunteer Helper Stabbed in Pastor’s Office in Aue

Aue-Bad Schlema (Saxony) — The parish of St. Nicolai in Aue-Bad Schlema gathered for a prayer for peace on Saturday evening after the bloody attack on one of its volunteers.

About 500 people attended the church. Superintendent Dieter Bankmann spoke out against the knife attack being politically exploited by right-wing circles.

“We are the ones affected,” said Bankmann. He thought it was harmful that the commitment of many people to the common good was being maligned.

On Christmas Eve a dispute between asylum seekers had escalated at the celebration for the needy in the parish and community centre in Aue-Bad Schlema. Helper Mike W. (51) tried to intervene and suffered a stab wound.

The man is still in hospital, but he is now feeling better. “During a visit, he emphasised that he does not feel any hatred and will continue his volunteer work,” the church community said.

The stepfather of the victim also spoke to the congregation, saying: “Mike is doing better. His lungs are damaged and will remain so for a long time. The spleen is pierced.” He went on to say, “We need to think about our internal security in the church.”

A 53-year-old Syrian is in custody. It is still unclear exactly who stabbed him.

An NPD councilman called for a demonstration after the attack. According to police, about 2200 neo-Nazis gathered at the Altmarkt [Old Market] in Aue on Saturday evening shortly after the peace prayer. Delegations from the right-wing extremist association Pro Chemnitz and the right-wing extremist mini-party Der Dritte Weg [The Third Way] had also come. Some demonstrators raised German flags.

“We protest against using this crime as an excuse to consider all foreigners as potential perpetrators of violence. For this terrible act of a migrant is countered by countless good experiences with migrants,” the website of the local authority said on Saturday.

Pedagogy, Lunacy, and Murder in Sweden

An Afghan “youth” murdered his teacher, with whom he had had a love affair — and she was 69 years old.

Such is life in Modern Multicultural Sweden.

Notice that the standard sentence for murder in Sweden is just fourteen years. The Afghan perp had his sentence reduced from that, due to his youth and his lunacy — and the lunacy of the Swedish “justice” system.

Killed teacher after sex affair — Now Ahmad Nazari has sentence reduced

Ahmad Nazari strangled his teacher to death after a love affair, and was sentenced to 11 years in prison by the district court after a reduction (due to his age). Now the high court has reduced Nazari’s sentence further, to 9½ years in prison given that he suffered from a serious mental disorder when the murder was committed, and that he had turned himself in.

The Afghan citizen Ahmad Nazari, who strangled his 69-year-old teacher after a love affair, has had his sentenced reduced by the High Court, reports Expressen.

The district court sentenced Nazari to 11 years in prison and deportation after his sentence is served. But Nazari appealed the sentence to the High Court.

“He maintains that he did not intentionally take the life of the woman; he requests that his sentence be lowered,” said Nazari’s lawyer, Anders Olssen, to SVT [Swedish Public Television] in connection with the appeal of the sentence.

Now his prison sentence has been lowered by 1½ years, which means it is sentenced to 9½ years in prison. The deportation after the sentence is served remains in effect.

The high court took into account that Nazari was judged to be suffering from a serious mental disorder when the murder was committed and that he voluntarily turned himself in.

The normal sentence for murder, according to the high court, is 14 years in prison for an adult, but since Nazari was 19-years-old when the murder was committed, he received a reduction for his age.

Greta back at Parliament: “It’s a crisis”

December 20, 2019

The climate alarmist Greta Thunberg is back outside Parliament, and now she has even more young people with her, says TT [News Agency]. Her plan is to make people feel that there is a “crisis” concerning the world’s climate.

It was in August of 2018 that Greta Thunberg began to sit outside Sweden’s parliament with a poster announcing “School strike for the climate”.

Now she is back outside Parliament, and this time even more young people are initiating a school strike with her.

“We humans are social animals and mimic each other. And if you start to act as if there were a crisis, others will follow suit,” she tells TT.

Greta also comments that she was recently named “Person of the Year” by Time Magazine.

She calls this surprising, but hopes it will get more people to “wake up” about the climate and attract even more so-called climate activists.

According to Greta, “climate activist” is currently a belligerent word, and she wants to change that. Climate activists should be hailed, believes the 16-year-old.

Mohamed the Butcher Becomes Mohamed the Rapist

A number of years ago, after reading so many stories about rapes and bestiality by Muslim men, I said sardonically to Dymphna: “Muslim men will rape anything that has a hole, and if it doesn’t have one, they’ll cut it a new one — that’s why they all carry knives.”

In the intervening years what began as a sick joke morphed into depressing reality as I read more and more about the rapin’-’n’-gropin’ proclivities of Islamic males. For a Muslim man the principal method of interaction with objects in his environment seems to be to rape them — women, girls, men, boys, infants, corpses, donkeys, goats, swans, and many other species too numerous to mention.

The story below from Philosophia Perennis is a case in point: a Muslim man in Germany took revenge on his wife’s ex-boyfriend — a fellow Muslim — by raping him, with the help of a couple of buddies.

By the way — this case has a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%

Trial in Görlitz: Mohamed A. allegedly raped the ex-boyfriend of his current partner

by David Berger
November 30th, 2019

Out of jealousy, a 33-year-old Tunisian is said to have brutally raped his present wife’s ex-boyfriend, the 35-year-old Pakistani Saif U. in Görlitz with the help of two other Arabs. “Mohamed locked the door from the inside. Then two more Arabs came along, beat me and kicked me, pressed me to the ground.” Then the 35-year-old Pakistani Saif U. was undressed and raped. Saif gave his testimony yesterday in tears before a court in Dresden.

Mohamed the butcher comes from Tunisia

And the prosecution seems to be certain that this description is correct, even if the Tunisian perpetrator Mohamed A. (33, butcher), who is now on trial, continues to deny the crime. Mohamed A. had already been sentenced in the summer to 3 years and 9 months imprisonment for raping the cook Saif U. in Görlitz. The reason: The victim had once been together with his present wife Anita (28). Mohamed A. was obsessed with the idea that Saif U. had contacted her again to take her away from him. Due to procedural errors, the Federal Supreme Court overturned the verdict, and the trial is now taking place again.

What do the “Fck AfD” T-shirt wearers have to do with the rapist Arab?

Male rape is much more common than generally assumed. And it also has serious consequences, especially if the men have a migration background in which passive anal intercourse (“treating him like a woman”) is considered degrading for a man: “A prejudice that men who have been raped are less traumatised than women is absolutely wrong, on the contrary. Studies show that the long-term effects of rape, whether male or female, usually have serious consequences for life. In addition, men are exposed to greater social stigmatisation, leading to even greater psychological damage for male rape victims.” (according to Wikipedia) Male rape by men is then understood as revenge or simply as violent domination. The now widespread German slogan “Fck xxx (Nazis, AfD, etc.)” remains attached to this anarchistic, misogynistic paradigm.

Knife Jihad at Cologne Central Station

The Cologne Central Railway Station (Hauptbahnhof) is well-known to readers who have been around since the Great Migration Crisis of 2015, because that’s where the notorious culture-enriching groping-and-raping festival took place on New Year’s Eve.

Last Sunday a different sort of cultural enrichment made itself felt at the Hauptbahnhof when a teenage mujahidette went on a stabbing rampage at the station.

Actually, there’s no indication from the report below that the young perpetrator is an immigrant, but I’d bet my bippy that she is, especially since the media emphasize the assertion that she has psychological problems. Islamic terrorists in Europe (and elsewhere in the West) are almost always said to be mentally ill.

Shocking Incident in Cologne Central Train Station: A 16-year-old Stabs Travellers with a Dagger

by Philipp J. Meckert
November 19, 2019

Knife attack at the central station! It was Sunday evening, at 9:30 P.M., in front of McDonald’s near Breslauer Platz. Suddenly, a young woman pulled out a long dagger and began to scream something very loudly. As a traveller came toward her, she waved around with her blade and cut his hand. The shocked man immediately loses a lot of blood and collapses.

Cologne Central Station: German railway security in action

The drama near Breslauer Platz continued: when the woman, according to witnesses, wanted to attack other passers-by with her knife, she was tackled to the ground, disarmed and overwhelmed by the security forces of German Rail. Following that, a patrol from the federal police took over.

According to witnesses, the young woman wanted to attack other passers-by with her knife.

Cologne Central Station: Federal police alerted

“We can confirm that a 16-year-old woman with a mental disorder was arrested by the federal police officers,” said federal police spokeswoman Martina Dressler on the EXPRESS. “According to our facts in this case, she wanted to injure herself with the knife. When the 39-year-old man tried to prevent this, he was injured.”

Cologne Central Station: Alleged perpetrator is a 16-year-old

The man was brought to a hospital by ambulance. EXPRESS learned that the woman, who had never behaved suspiciously at the main station before, also threatened the DB security men with the knife. A colleague is said to have been injured in the wrangling. The 16-year-old was transferred to a psychiatric ward after she had been identified.

What Was the Ideology of the Synagogue Shooter in Halle?

Last week a gunman named Stephan Balliet used what was apparently a home-made firearm to shoot two people to death in the vicinity of a synagogue in the German city of Halle.

All major media outlets immediately and predictably identified the perpetrator as a “far-right” or “neo-Nazi” ideologue. Such descriptions were concocted using absolutely zero evidence — in fact, there was evidence that contradicted the Narrative on the shooter, but has since been suppressed: the gunman’s live stream of his rampage. It has understandably been removed from the social media service on which it was originally streamed. However, a version of it with the most sensitive parts either removed or blurred out could have been released to the public. The problem for the Powers That Be is that the shooter’s record of his acts does NOT support the “right-wing” Narrative about him. The only ideology on display in the video is his Jew-hatred — which these days is more often the provenance of the Left, and not the Right.

To set the record straight Vlad Tepes has made a bit-torrented version of the killer’s live stream available. Thanks to the intrepid work of Nash Montana, the footage includes translated subtitles for the portions that were intelligible.

The two embedded videos (translated by MissPiggy) show mainstream media reports that pound in the Narrative. After those, Vlad has provided the link to the bit-torrented video. Watch it yourself and see what you think.

Vlad and I refer to the killer as “Pee Wee German”. If you watch his video, you’ll see why. Vlad is certain that the guy applied lipstick before beginning his rampage.

The essay below was posted at Vlad’s place in a slightly different form. Below that I’ve appended transcripts of all three videos.

How the left uses a crisis to destroy all our rights and freedoms. Now using Halle Germany attack

(from Vlad Tepes)

After the New Zealand attack on a mosque, those of you who followed the issue may remember how quickly all evidence of the video and the manifesto was removed from the internet except for the most protected and adept at finding these sorts of things.

The next thing that happened was the socialist (read communist) PM of New Zealand used that attack, while ignoring the thousands of islamic attacks of manifest destiny, even the one that came soon after, killing hundreds of Christians in Sri Lanka, to advance her program of increased power to the state, and the right to send police out to every New Zealander that ever objected to mass immigration policies or Islam in general. (This could be an example of Marcuse’s ‘Repressive tolerance’.)

The tragedy of that attack was rapidly turned into an opportunity by the state to dramatically increase its power beyond what democracy allows for, at the expense of the individual, or any dissenting opinion. The state did so by inventing the narrative and opinions of the attacker in a way that was convenient to the state’s agenda, and by doing its best to bury any actual evidence of the real reasons the attacker did what he did.

For example they claimed he was a Trump supporter, even though his manifesto was clearly contemptuous of President Trump.

They made him a “Far right wing extremist” even though he called himself, a “National Bolshevik” in his manifesto. Which is a real thing. A merger of Nazi socialism with Soviet Socialism as far as I understand it. He also had all his weapons and materials covered in names of famous Balkan war heroes who had died fighting against Islamic manifest destiny in Central Europe and played a famous song to the cause of liberation of the Balkans from Islamic oppression.

All of that was well chronicled on this blog as it happened. The videos of the police going to people’s doors in New Zealand was especially interesting from this point of view.

So when a lone, anti-Semitic nut in Germany went to attack a synagogue in Halle, we expected something similar from the Merkel government. In this case, predictably that the far right is “Very very very very dangerous, at least as dangerous as Islamic terror.” Try to remember that when you watch the actual attack by this guy, linked at the bottom. A Jihadi could have stabbed 50 people by the time his psycho gave up his general failure.

The next thing we expected was that the Merkel government and her puppet groups, in this case a “Jewish” group that is a beard for communists to attack the AfD, and has been used before by leftist groups in Germany, would blame this dangerous “very very very very far right” extremist on the AfD as somehow responsible.

At this point we invite you to see the actual attack video the killer made when he did his little mission. In order to see it, we recommend that you are running a VPN, and have a torrent client installed like u Torrent or BitTorrent. If you have a torrent client and are protected by a VPN, then click this link and it should start the download of the file to your local machine. You may have to find the torrent file on your machine and click that to start the download of the video. Once you have it, please keep your torrent client open a day or so to help other people see what really happened, and what the German government is saying is at least equal to Islamic terror in Europe.

(Below is the description of the video. It should also be noted that he does shoot two people in this video. The faces of his victims were blurred, and what appears to be his home made black powder produces so much smoke that you do not see much of the aftermath of his shooting. So on the one hand it is graphic, but on the other hand not compared to the average TV show.)

The New Sorrows of Young Snowflakes

Many thanks to JLH for translating this essay from Henryk Broder’s website Die Achse des Guten:

An eighteen-year-old German Gymnasium graduate gives us her view of the German snowflake generation

The New Sorrows of Young Snowflakes[1]

by Elisa David

When I was studying in gymnasium, I got into a “strings” class. That means my class had an extra two hours when we learned to play a string instrument. Today I know I will definitely not be another Anne-Sophie Mutter.[2]. Those years were not useless, however, for I learned something quite different. Since the idea of extra strings practice did not appeal to many boys, we had a rather unusual gender division, with three boys and twenty girls. So for five years in my class, a collective of puberty-driven teenage girls set the tone — for my own self at the time, it was an absolute horror. But now I know what the consequences can be when women gain the upper hand.

I am no longer amazed at any political movement. My time in school has, to a certain extent, prepared me perfectly for Fridays for Future, #MeToo, and all these trends which my generation has absorbed, because they are tailor-made for them. Generation Snowflake is sensitive, does not wish to be confronted by unfamiliar opinions, is united in “otherness”. Because that is the point — being “other” but “belonging” to it; a certain uncertainty, coupled with the habit of considering oneself important; the need to be seen and simultaneously to conform. My observation is that these completely new views, this strange, contradictory behavior — which major portions of society and above all my generation display — depend on it.

One result seems to be the inflationary increase of psychic illnesses. Not being quite right in the head seems to be the first and decisive step to welcoming otherness. In my class, it was a proven method in the constant battle for sympathy. Passing through distinct stages of puberty is normal, but many took this to a higher level. I still remember how we discussed eating disorders like anorexia in biology class, and shortly thereafter, half the class was anorexic. The imaginary ill predictably announced their new suffering loudly to the world.

The Cutting Trend

Our teacher showed us pictures of an anorexic patient and explained that it is definitely unhealthy for the rib cage and the spine to show so clearly, and that help is needed urgently. Before the very next sports hour, a bunch of girls were standing in front of the mirror, lamenting loudly that their bones were not showing, so they must be overweight and would eat nothing for the entire rest of the day.

Our teacher explained the food pyramid and why a balanced diet is important for the body. My fellow female students were already planning what foods they would avoid to reach the desired weight loss through deficient nutrition. At some point, the attention they received for these actions was no longer enough. When, every hour on the hour, somebody runs out to throw up, it is no longer anything special.

Then, as if by divine will, there came a conference day on the explanation and recognition of depression. There is no denying how important it is to recognize depression. But a side effect of presentations which explain in detail what the symptoms of these illnesses are is that these symptoms are served to young attention-needy girls on a silver platter. All they have to do is write it down and act it out. And in fact, even writing it down isn’t necessary, since glossy brochures are passed out at the end.

How Political Correctness Lowers IQ

This week’s installment of Dymphna’s greatest hits is from May of 2005. Like last week’s, it’s fairly timeless. Unfortunately, the website she originally linked to seems to no longer exist, so the link has been removed.

How Political Correctness Lowers IQ

by Dymphna
Originally published on May 5, 2005

Walter Williams doesn’t fly commercial airplanes much anymore. He used to, traveling to speaking engagements several times a month. But then along came 9/11. Or rather, along came Norman Mineta with his truly bizarre idea of “security”:

“While the security procedures are not based on the race, ethnicity, religion or gender of passengers, we also want to assure that in practice, the system does not disproportionately select members of any particular minority group.”

Never mind that the sentence itself is strange bureaucratese. We’ve become inured to the debasement of the language. Here’s what’s appalling: we may not speak about the reality that a particularly gendered ethnic group created the hell of 9/11. The elephant in the airport is the disproportionate self-selection of Muslim males on the “Most-Wanted” terrorist Lists.

The only group we avoid criticizing more than Muslim males are gay Episcopalian bishops.

This demand for political correctness has gone beyond the ridiculous into the regions of banal evil. There is an ugly strain of utopian idealism in our country, a virulent insistence on ‘fairness’ that undermines intelligence, merit and achievement. Not to mention virtue, the refuge of the uncool.

The malignant organism that rips the social fabric of American life, leveling differences while it pretends to celebrate them, PC everywhere insinuates itself into the crevices, using a cover of well-meaning to create vacuous, bizarre realities like “zero-tolerance” and unattended college sports programs for women (while men’s programs are eliminated).

It demands — and gets — bathrooms for the transgendered who cannot decide which restroom to use.

Pornography is our constitutional right but we shouldn’t be looking at images of the Twin Towers falling.

“Give Peace A Chance” means no dodgeball at recess.

“No Child Left Behind” means all will be mired in ignorance together. Even fewer will be able to point to Europe on the map, or know a quadratic equation from an interrogative sentence. A what??

No, ignorance is not the perceived problem. Unfairness is. The smallest infraction is insufficiently negligible to escape its notice. Yet PC has so blinded formerly normal people that children wander the school halls bent on murder and no one sees them until bodies are lying on the floor. “But he was such a nice boy.” More calls for gun control and therapy for bullies.

Political correctness has made us so stupid that some of us demand conversation with vaginas.

If we don’t rise up and call a halt to this social rot, terrorism will be irrelevant. We’ll be protozoa.

Orwell had no idea, absolutely none.

Read all of Walter Williams’ “The Sad, Stupid State of Airport Security.” It’s a three-parter at Human Events, beginning with the above link.
