Does Facebook Support a Second Holocaust?


And it’s not hard to guess which side they appear to be taking. I received this email this morning:
I’d like to inform David Swindle that the facebook group “Expel Jumanah Imad Albahri From UC San Diego” was deleted by facebook where as an opposing group “Do not Expel Jumanah Imad Albahri From UC [...]

Ryan Sorba: To Shun or Not to Shun?


It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of Ryan Sorba, the young conservative who shows off his tough-guy masculinity by trying to make a career out of fighting against homosexuals and gay marriage. If you don’t remember, Sorba is the speaker with a massively inflated sense of self-importance that used his debut at CPAC [...]

Pakistan: Thousands rally against Facebook because of Everybody Draw Muhammad Day


Note the threats on some of the signs above.
Islamic War On Free Speech Alert, and an update on this story. “Muslim anger prompts Pakistan to block Facebook,” by Babar Dogar for Associated Press, May 19 (thanks to Maxwell):

Palin Nails It: the American Apologists Have Never Met a Bill They Have Read


Sarah Palin sometimes has impeccable timing.  Today she posted on Facebook that:
the American Apology Tour continues.
That is both true and unfortunate of course and you can read her post in it’s entirety here.
But the interestingly ironic aspect is that Ms. Palin’s frustration with the O Team ignorance is nicely juxtaposed with another progressive posted jaw [...]

Pakistan directs ISP’s to block Facebook because of Motoon competition


Why draw Muhammad? Why make fun of the man Muslims revere most? Why arouse their ire?

Now that may seem odd — why would anyone want to provoke someone else’s murderous rage?
Because it is an object lesson in pluralism. Either we put up with [...]

Military Personnel Have Free Speech Rights


New social media networking tools are giving U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines the ability to communicate to a mass audience. A serviceman’s exercise of his free speech rights may be unsettling to many military chieftains. However, it is unavoidable and protected by the First Amendment.

CNN’s Taste for Instant Coffee (and the Left)


Did you ever wonder how the obscure Tea-Party-take-off “Coffee Party” suddenly had it’s own professional website and a hundred thousand facebook fans? Yeah. Neither did CNN. Whereas CNN couldn’t be bothered to acknowledge the burgeoning Tea Party gatherings of family people concerned over taxes and ever-intrusive federal government until they sent a rabid correspondent out [...]

The Ever-Expanding Scope of Palin Derangement Syndrome


Meghan Stapleton, advisor and spokeswoman to Governor Sarah Palin, resigned yesterday to spend more time with her family, and we all know what that means: another media feeding frenzy.  A recent Daily Beast interview with Stapleton suggests her departure is an essentially unremarkable development over the normal course of a political career, but that won’t [...]

Regional Leader “Islam Democrats” Unmasked


More and more, bloggers everywhere are asking the questions the mainstream media do not dare, or do not want to ask. At Dutch conservative blog Dagelijkse Standaard, for instance, we wondered whether the leader of the newly founded Islam Democrats party in The Hague, Dilaver Delikaya, is as enlightened, westernized, modern and peaceful as he and [...]
