Vexatious and ill-informed

Ars Technica reports that two ‘anti-Muslim activists’ are suing the US government for failing to protect their rights under the First Amendment to the US Constitution by preventing Facebook, Twitter and YouTube from censoring them.

Even I know that the First Amendment doesn’t apply to anyone except the US government itself:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are not departments of the US government and any attempt by it to regulate their content would itself violate the second term of the First Amendment.

I have no doubt that the US judiciary will set aside this vexatious and ill-informed suit.

It is interesting, if perhaps unsurprising, that American Muslims appear to have more common sense than to attempt any kind of proceeding against their opponents’ use of these services under the first term.

Right now

Cold Fury quotes the well-quoted Vladimir Putin:

“If they bomb even one city in Russia, I swear, in half an hour every Muslim will die”

and endorses this view:

I never respected the guy more, and can only wish we ourselves had someone in office as dedicated to maintaining his nation’s power, security, and general well-being even half as forcefully. Someone who could compete with this guy on his own terms, someone who would negotiate from a position not of contrite weakness, but of self-assurance and strength.

Hear hear, Sir!

Having read some history I’m convinced that what we (the civilised West) are facing is of historic proportion and is nothing less than an Islamic world-domination plan, financed by oil, planned by theocratic dinosaurs and executed by murderous, expendable subhumans unsuitable for any other employment. Only conflict between competing would-be ‘leaders of the Islamic world’, the Saudis and Qataris versus the Iranians versus the Turks, is slowing down its implementation.

For many decades this genocidal campaign has been facilitated in the West by virtue-signalling socialists of whom Angela Merkel perhaps provides the best example. Even now a significant minority of British people, albeit confined to rich and fashionable cities, still believe that as a nation we should continue to demonstrate our bona fides and attract good karma by allowing Islam to defeat us.

Soon – almost instantly, in historical terms – sides will have to be taken.

Vladimir Putin is more like us than the enemy is; very much more. His country has successful experience in dealing with barbarian hordes, throughout history and from both sides. It also contains some of the toughest and most courageous and determined people in the world.

We need (in the old-fashioned, pre-NLP sense of actual compulsive necessity) to be allies with these guys.

Right now.

 

 

Suedi Arabia

Zero Hedge carries the heartening news that a Mrs. DeSimone is at last suing the kingdom of Saudi Arabia for having done no fewer than thirteen things which contributed to her husband’s murder by Muslim terrorists on September 11, 2001.

I sincerely hope that the relatives of all of those who were murdered or injured by Muslim terrorists on that day, and those of all other victims of Muslim terrorism, proceed similarly against the kingdom with the minimum of delay.

Any reasonable compensation would be chickenfeed to the Saudis, and so there is no reason for them to suppose that this is the end of the matter.

Personally I would always favour reducing Saudi Arabia to a self-illuminating glass car park, but I’m prepared to wait until everyone’s got their compo.
