Defend Free Speech!

Mannahu Akbar!

The other day I quoted this letter from Mindy Alter in The National Post: Mark Steyn reminds us of the similarities between jihadists and climate-change alarmists. Both are fanatical. Both hew to ideologies that brook no dissent or criticism. Both go ballistic — albeit in markedly different ways — when some "blasphemer" has the audacity to make withering fun of them and their orthodoxies. Most crucially, however, is the fact that both are control freaks who seek to micro-manage our lives, the ...

Happy Warrior

The Court Predator

Jimmy Savile is entirely unknown to Americans. Which is as it should be. He was a British disc jockey and children's-TV host, but, even by the debased standards of those callings, he didn't appear to have any particular talent...

Steyn on America

Emasculated and Enkindled

The problem with a victim culture is that so many people want to join the ranks of victimhood that eventually you run short of oppressors.

Steyn on Canada and the Commonwealth

Remembrance, Delusion and Usurpation

I have always loved the simple dignity of Remembrance Day ceremonies in the Commonwealth, and, if I chance to be in one of Her Majesty's Dominions large or small - Canada or Australia, Grand Turk or Gibraltar - come November 11th, I always wander along to join the local dignitaries and poppy-wearing citizens honoring their veterans at the Cenotaph.

This year it's different...

Steyn on the World

Where's the Lead in the Pencil?

The cover of this week's Charlie Hebdo (right) shows Mohammed shedding a tear and holding up a "Je suis Charlie" sign under the headline "Tout est pardonné" - all is forgiven. The illustration is unclear: Is Mohammed forgiving the secular leftie blasphemers? Or are the secular lefties forgiving Mohammed and his murderous believers..?
