Do We Love Our Freedoms as Much as They Hate Them?

From Arts & Letters Daily: City Journal: An Anatomy of Surrender
Leading liberal intellectuals and academics have shown a striking willingness to betray liberal values when it comes to pacifying Muslims. Back in 2001, Unni Wikan, a distinguished Norwegian cultural anthropologist and Islam expert, responded to the high rate of Muslim-on-infidel rape in Oslo by exhorting women to "realize that we live in a multicultural society and adapt themselves to it."

More recently, high-profile Europe experts Ian Buruma of Bard College and Timothy Garton Ash of Oxford, while furiously denying that they advocate cultural surrender, have embraced "accommodation," which sounds like a distinction without a difference. In his book
Murder in Amsterdam, Buruma approvingly quotes Amsterdam mayor Job Cohen's call for "accommodation with the Muslims," including those "who consciously discriminate against their women." Sharia enshrines a Muslim man's right to beat and rape his wife, to force marriages on his daughters, and to kill them if they resist. One wonders what female Muslims who immigrated to Europe to escape such barbarity think of this prescription.

The Morning /~* Star: Panel Debunks Claims of Too Sexiness For Shirt

Expert Panel: Cartoonist's Claim to Be Too Sexy For Shirt Unfounded
A Special Report from The Morning /~* Star

Herndon, VA -- An independent panel of sexiness experts have unanimously
concluded that claims of local cartoonist and notorious weirdboy John "The
Gneech" Robey that he was "too sexy for my shirt, too sexy for my shirt,
so sexy it hurts" had, in fact, no basis in reality.

The panel, including Sigourney Weaver, Hugh Jackman, Angelina Jolie, Hugh
Grant, Kathy Ireland, various representatives from the Sexy Police, and Errol
Flynn (via psychic medium), issued a scathing point-by-point refutation of
Gneech's assertions, finding that he was:

  • Not too sexy for his shirt
  • Not so sexy it hurts
  • Not too sexy for Milan, New York, or Japan
  • Not too sexy for your party (and likely to disco dance)
  • Not too sexy for his car
  • Not too sexy by far
  • Not too sexy for his hat
  • Not too sexy for his cat
  • Not too sexy for his love
  • Not too sexy for this song
"And as for shaking his tush on the catwalk," said Jackman, "let's just not even go there, shall we?" What prompted Gneech to make such outrageous-but-easily-disproven claims has yet to be determined. When asked for comment, Gneech is reported to have told reporters that they turn him right round, baby, right round, like a record baby, right round round round. It has been suggested that he may be a loony. More reports on the situation as it develops.
