If you are surprised at what happened in France today, you either have not been paying attention or hate Pam Geller & Robert Spencer so much you are willing to pretend Islam is a religion of peace.

You may think we’re not at war with radical Islam but radical Islam is at war with you. If you don’t believe me try asking Molly Norris if you can find her.

You can either defy radical Islam or submit to it.

I recommend defiance remember sooner or later you are going to die, all that is unknown is how.

They can only kill me once

Update:  MSNBC guest on Al Sharpton’s show blaming French Islamophobia, mass murder will never trump the narrative.

Exactly the wrong response here and here

The right response here and here.

French satire weekly Charlie Hebdo has been attacked by Muslims again, this time killing twelve people, including two policemen, and wounding twenty more.

This is what we know so far:

  • Three gunmen wearing face masks and carrying repetition guns came out of cars and walked into the office of Charlie Hebdo, which was holding its weekly meeting.
  • This was a well-planned, premeditated attack.
  • Paris police have confirmed at least one of the men was carrying a rocket launcher.
  • Eyewitness say the attackers yelled “Allahu Akbar” as they fired. One said in French “the prophet has been avenged.” Additionally,

There are reports in the French press that one of the attackers told an eyewitness to “tell the media that we are from Al-Qaida in the Yemen”.

Jean Cabut, or “Cabu”, a veteran of several French newspapers and reportedly the highest paid cartoonist in the world.

According to a journalist at the scene, at least one of the police officers killed had been assigned to protect Mr Charbonnier personally. In 2013 he was included on a “most wanted” list published by Inspire, al-Qaeda’s terrorist propaganda magazine.

  • Charlie Hebdo’s editor-in-chief Gerard Biard was in London when the attack took place.
  • One of the policemen, apparently unarmed, was executed on the sidewalk.
  • The gunmen are still at large. France is at its
    highest level of alert.

Later today,

A car explosion has been reported in front of a synagogue in Sarcelles, a heavily Jewish populated city near Paris where two where two gunmen attacked the office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo just hours earlier on Wednesday, French media outlet Metronews reported.

The car was parked in front of a synagogue, and reportedly exploded at about 2.30 p.m. local time.

The synagogue had been firebombed last July. Other attacks had been taking place through France since late December.

What this means:
This is an attack on civil society, be it in France or anywhere in the world. Every civilized country should condemn it.

I first browsed through a Charlie Hebdo years ago, mistakenly thinking it would be a French Mad Magazine. It was not. While it is a humor magazine, frequently [WARNING: the link is definitely not suitable for work] it’s in-your-face pornographic and thrives on blasphemy. I heard one of the reporters mistakenly describe CH as “a conservative magazine.”

That said, the Charlie Hebdo staff have been steadfast on their commitment to freedom of expression and freedom of the press, and continued their work unflinchingly after a firebombing on the night of November 2, 2011.

As Charb declared, “I prefer to die standing than to live on my knees.”

NYC has a problem, how do you pay for all that Police overtime to control protesters lately? The money has to come from somewhere so how do you find a department that can spare the funds?

Lucky for the city such a department has graciously self identified by taking the obsession of this silly woman who apparently has no life:

“Manspreading is when men take up too much room on the subway by spreading their legs in a wide V. Like geese traveling,” explained actress Kelley Rae O’Donnell.

O’Donnell has become an anti-manspreading activist, making stopping the spread a personal mission.

And making it a department policy

Kevin Ortiz with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it’s an issue customers have noticed, “and for lack of a better word can be an annoyance.”

“This is an issue that we’ve heard from our female customers about in particular,” he added.

So for the first time the MTA is asking men to mind the gap by putting up posters reminding riders to be more considerate of others.

We must conclude that the MTA has solved all of its issues with safety, mechanical problems, personal legal issues and space because apparently they have no better use for the taxpayer funds than to make sure men do not sit with their legs too far apart on a subway.

It is very kind of the NY MTA to self identify for the sake of the city government and I trust New Yorks and particularly the GOP in NY take advantage of this self-identification to push for the government to relieve them of those excess funds to take care of more pressing needs from policing, to housing for the poor, to children’s issues.

It goes without saying that the next time liberals ask for more money for NYC in congress this example should be mentioned to deny said funding.

After seeing this post at Stacy McCain’s site:

Feminism’s Campaign of Sexual Terror

and this excerpt:

If we recognize how feminist theory applies to the current “rape culture” discourse focused on college and university campuses, we also recognize this: Feminists are attempting to criminalize male sexuality, so that every sexual interaction between men and women occurs under the threat of prosecution if at any point, for any reason, the woman becomes unhappy with the interaction. Feminists now vehemently insist that males must be presumed guilty of rape if any woman ever accuses them of rape. No evidence is necessary beyond the accusation, and anyone who does not accept this no-evidence-needed standard is angrily condemned by feminists as a “rape apologist.”

This is anti-male terrorism, creating on university campuses a climate of fear in which “ordinary heterosexual initiation,” to borrow Professor MacKinnon’s phrase, becomes extraordinarily difficult due to the pervasive danger to males that their female partners might accuse them of a felony sex offense, the mere accusation being a de facto conviction.

It hit me that feminist’s attempts to silence dissent out of abject fear is comparable to the French Terror after the revolution where the wrong public or even private thought could mean the guillotine.

Moreover if the feminists and their allies are the modern equivalent of Robespierre how would we classify the man who has spent the last year exposing this terror for what it is both on twitter and at his site?

Well as he imitating Sir Percy Blakeney the Scarlet Pimpernel who was the scourge of revolutionary France and he is a loyal Alabama fan whose masculine football team infuriates feminists everywhere.

Ladies and gentlemen I give you the Crimson Pimpernel:

He tweaks fems here

He tweaks fems there

Ole Stacy tweaks them everywhere!

Is he a prophet?

Is is insane?

That damned infernal RS. McCain

 

Of course this would make Smithy Sir Andrew Ffoulkes his second in command & Wombat Lord Anthony Dewhurst, as for myself I would be proud to be part of the League of the Crimson Pimpernel or perhaps as Stacy is known for his hat, the League of the Crimson Fedora.

For those totally unfamiliar with the Scarlet Pimpernel here is the 1934 movie staring Leslie Howard of Gone with the Wind fame.
