Hat tip Campus Reform


I earlier cross-posted a report from The College Fix which describes the backlash that UC Berkeley College Republicans are facing over their sponsoring of an appearance by Milo Yiannopoulos on February 1.

The blog, Campus Reform has more information regarding the on-going campaign of harassment directed at CR.

Coupled with last week's disruption of an appearance by Yiannopoulos at UC Davis as well as the ugly reactions against him in other universities all over the country, it is clear that the concept of free speech in academia is limited to the left. CR chapters all over the country are learning what happens when they invite speakers like Yiannopoulois to campus. It is particularly despicable that now the far left loons on campus have manufactured phony posters alleging that the CR had invited white nationalist Richard Spencer to speak.

And where is that joke of a chancellor Nicholas Dirks? How can UCB tolerate this crap on campus? Physical harassment is not free speech.

As Slaughters Continue, US Is on Guard Against-Islamophobia

Hat tip Creeping Sharia

It doesn't seem possible that we in the West could have things so much in reverse, but instead of guarding against further Islamic encroachment, our leaders are determined that we should not think ill of Islam just because people are being slaughtered en masse virtually every day in the name of Allah. Islamophobia is the thing we must guard  against.

This is how it works. Some terrible deed is carried out in America by a jihadist inspired by ISIS or Al Qaeda. Or perhaps, a horrible scene takes place in Europe like Berlin, Brussels or Paris to name a few. Instantly, here in the US, the CAIR bears and their gullible supporters in the media and Justice Department began warning of Islamophobia and impending acts of retribution against innocent Muslims-which don't happen. In fact, most of the reported "hate crimes" like a Muslim woman in hijab being assaulted or insulted turn out to be manufactured hoaxes. Remember that notorious letter sent out to various mosques threatening violence? Not only has the threat not materialized, but we still don't know who the writer was.

The fact is that Jews are far more under the gun than Muslims, yet that is a story that has no legs. The media could care less. The fact is that with rare exceptions, Americans have responded in an exemplary manner to all the horrors of Islamic terror and intolerance. We don't lash out at innocent Muslims, and I have been very clear that it would be un-American to do so. But anybody who thinks there is no threat out there and that all these horrific attacks have nothing to do with Islam is deluding themselves.

An Orange County Rabbi Sounds Off on the UN, Israel, J Street etc

Hat tip Arutz Sheva


Orange County Rabbi Dov Fischer is a friend and associate who does fabulous work in Orange County. In this op-ed with Arutz Sheva, Rabbi Fischer sounds off on the UN, our abstention in the Israel resolution, J Street and other issues.

Well stated, Rabbi. There is plenty of shame to go around. Hopefully, J Street is now exposed as an enemy of Israel. Any organization supported by George Soros cannot be anything else. As a gentile, I must say that American Jews who consider themselves supporters of Israel and President Obama must be examining themselves. It is clear that Obama has nothing but hostility for Israel. While there are some Democrats like Charles Schumer who support Israel, it is also clear that it is the Republican party that supports the Jewish state. Schumer himself must be wondering how much influence he has held with the Obama administration.

No doubt Donald Trump will be a much greater friend to Israel than this current administration. I also hope he will take a big first step toward the eventual demise of the UN by dramatically reducing our funding. This poisonous organization is not only dangerous to Israel but the US as well.

January 20 cannot come fast enough.
