Laura vs. unhinged librarians by Michelle Malkin

Townhall.com :: Columns :: Laura vs. unhinged librarians by Michelle Malkin – Jun 21, 2006

“Welcome to the 21st century librarian: book-smart, reality-stupid, Bush-deranged bigots. Let’s hope the First Lady’s security detail comes prepared. You never know what these tolerant people will throw.”

Also notice the interesting fact that that rabid lunatic quoted is a Jew. They really know how to attract dislike.

Another great idea from Prof. Adams. Even better still though would be racially aware college administrators, but that would be like a cow giving birth to a whale.

UB Reporter: Penniman to return to faculty

UB Reporter: Penniman to return to faculty

Looks like justice has been done. W.D. Penniman, the dean of my school, the School of Informatics at the University at Buffalo will be stepping down at the end of next month.

If the faculty is truly interested in seeing the Informatics program succeed, they will ensure the appointment of a dean who will make drastic changes, so that theory becomes reality and others like myself won’t be as irritated anymore.

Four years after its inceptions, the informatics MA program is a disgrace. I hope the new dean will work very seriously on getting the program up to the level of the communication programs so that every program will be something to be proud of.

A well written defense of marriage. The author doesn’t really add any new facts, but there are too many people who have made a habit of ignoring them, so they definitely are worth repeating.

Israel, the liability?

In a recent paper, two US professors, John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, concluded that the US government’s support of Israel had become too large of a liability to tolerate. While they are right in saying that too much foreign aid is wasted on Israel, they are wrong on terrorism, about as wrong as most liberals, as a matter of fact.

The professors reiterate the tired old line that if we only stopped supporting Israel and quit “fighting their wars”, we’d all be safe from terrorism. They also claim that Israel’s terrorist enemies aren’t the same as ours.

On both counts, they are wrong. Islam, the driving force behind terrorism, mandates war against non-Muslim targets, so ceasing support for Israel would only stop the least intelligent terrorists. Hamas and their allies have also already established front organizations within the US, so to claim that they aren’t enemies is plain ignorance.

The only way we’d be mostly safe from terrorism is if the US became the first nation to start the reconstruction of the global caliphate within its borders by replacing our democratic system with sharia law. But then we’d probably have Sunnis and Shias fighting on the streets, so we still wouldn’t be alright.

The only way to increase security would be to issue a joint statement with all sane nations declaring a war in Islam, for only without the religion of war will there be (next to) no terrorism.

Gatekeeper redux

On Monday, my university’s student newspaper, The Spectrum, published a letter to the editor written by some moonbat liberal who decided he was going to apologize for someone else who had told the truth about an immigration issue.

Feeling prompted, I wrote a letter in response. Judging by the paper’s reaction to this (they once again decided not to publish a letter of mine) I must have touched some nerves. So here’s my masterpiece in all its glory:

Hines does not speak for most Americans

To the editor:

This letter is in response to the letter by P.J. Hines in the January 30th issue of The Spectrum.

To the easily offended: P.J. Hines does not speak for all Americans, not even for the majority of Americans. As should have been evident from the language he used, the only people he speaks for are extremists who in no way interested in preserving our nation as it has stood for over 200 years.

Mr. Quarantello may have been blunt in his approach, but he was right. Statistics prove that the vast majority of terrorism against the USA or US interests has been committed by men of middle eastern decent. If that social group therefore gets singled out for searches, it is not racism but common sense policy being exercised.

Mr. Quarantello was also right when he attempted to explain the uselessness of the local extremists’ “fight” against the federal government. Suing Customs and Immigration Service agencies for offending your sensibilities is only going to motivate them to crack down harder on Muslims, not to afford them the “rights” they seek. It is akin to assaulting a police officer after being found guilty of the possession of a controlled substance.

And then there’s this thing called humor…

Example of liberal lunacy in academia

A few days ago, I once again tried to change the laws of thermodynamics by arguing with a liberal. After they published their usual biased, paranoid nonsense, this time about the NSA “scandal”, in an editorial, I responded with this letter (linked version is edited).

In today’s issue, some professor responded with some practical humor, a diatribe of tripe nonsense where he claims that somehow liberals are responsible for everything good in America, with hilarious claims such as “liberals have worked hard to ensure that national security overhauls have occurred legally and effectively”. (If you blanked just there — the liberals’ obstructionist tactics in DC made legal reforms anything but legal and effective.)
