"Did Ya Hear the One About the....?"

"That looks like the sheriff's  station, by Jove."

Did ya hear the one about the woman who drove her car into the Broward County (Fla) Sheriff's office Monday? You heard that didn't ya?


And ya probably got a later update that the driver's name was Lasandra Johnson, 34, right?

Police are searching for a motive. A gentleman named John Cardillo discovered it.

Motive: Jihad.

Here is more from Thomas Lifson in American Thinker

That is why we need the internet and blogosphere, with all their faults to fill in the holes from the mainstream media.

Then, the man stole a car, killing the passenger and wounding the driver. Upon that, he drove to the nearby town of Trèbes. An eye-witness said that the perpetrator shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) [translator’s note: this common translation is not quite correct, it means “Allah is greater” or “is greatest”) when he assaulted the local supermarket “Super U“ market at 11:15 AM. He was armed with knives, a shotgun and hand grenades.

A Moroccan terrorist who was known to French police has been shot dead by police after killing three people.

A Riot in Spain

Hat tip to Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes

Last week, a Senegalese street vendor died of an apparent heart attack while fleeing police in a neighborhood of Madrid. The resulted in a riot by migrants in the same neighborhood. The below link has film of the riot and an accompanying news article. The  captions in Spanish were translated to English by Yours Truly and the sub-titling was completed by Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes. It pretty much speaks for itself. (Maybe our knucklehead Mr Anonymous will comment and bring in some "Fact-Check" site that will say it wasn't a riot at all. (See my post on Paris yesterday.)

So You Want to Attend Mass in France?

St Denis Basilica

This is what happened Sunday evening at St Denis Basilica outside Paris during evening mass. Muslim migrants attempted to storm inside. Apparently, they don't like the idea of a Christian church located in what has become a heavily Muslim neighborhood. (Construction on the church began in 1134.)

Dutch Voting Irregularities Among Turkish Voters

Today, the Netherlands held local elections. The below report indicates that there have been voting irregularities among the Turkish-Dutch voters. According to the reports, Turkish people are improperly accompanying Turkish voters into the polling booths and giving them advise in Turkish. This figures to help the DENK party, a Turkish Muslim party in the  Netherlands.

I have translated the below article into English.

Reports of Turkish 'observers' in voting booth

AMSTERDAM - UPDATE - Turkish 'observers' would accompany voters in at least two Amsterdam electoral locations in the voting booth to explain everything in Turkish. This is reported on Twitter. The municipality has a statement that is at odds with the findings of voters, but will do some investigation.

VARA comedian Johan Goossens tweeted Wednesday after the vote: "I predict a great victory for Denk in my neighborhood Bos en Lommer in Amsterdam. In the polling room they give personal voting advice in Turkish and even go with you in the booth ... I said something about it, but no one intervened. Bizarre."

Only A voter must enter the voting booth because of the voting secrecy. This is to prevent someone from being forced or influenced to vote for something. Only people with a disability can be helped. According to Goossens, who confirms his story by telephone, the latter was not the case.

"Guys, this is not allowed?"

"I arrived at the polling station and that observer pointed out the older couple on the list. They spoke in Turkish and a moment later the person with the older couple disappeared into the booth, pushed through. I said, guys, this is not allowed? There were five other observers, but they did not look up. This is serious. "

Reported investigation

Goossens has complained to the Electoral Council and the municipality of Amsterdam. The municipality indicates that they take the message from Goossens seriously. A spokesperson says that the report is now being investigated. Among other things, a visit will be made to the polling station.
Political scientist Merijn Boezer found something similar in the local electoral office of Meevaart in the Indische Buurt in Amsterdam. "I think it is not allowed to help people who do not speak Dutch in the voting booth? Walk in and stay at the booth for a while ... So this happened in the Indische Buurt, Meervaart electoral space. "Later, Boezer corrected his report, it turns out to be the Meevaart bureau, Meervaart office is located in Amsterdam Nieuw-West.

Response Amsterdam

According to the municipality of Amsterdam, there was indeed a note about the state of affairs at the polling station in Bos en Lommer, which was also included in the official report. "After the report we went to the location with two officials to find out what happened," says the municipal spokesman. "The chairman of the electoral committee intervened, because two people stood in one voting booth. That's not allowed. No voting advice was given, but told how voting works. This happened in Dutch. "According to the spokesperson, the same thing happened at the Meevaart agency.
In response, Goossens said: "Unfortunately, this story of the municipality is not at all correct. I did not hear the observer speak a word of Dutch and he just disappeared with the couple in the voting booth, and even opened their ballot. I was the only one who said something about it. "

Rotterdam voting advice

In Rotterdam, an unknown woman gave voting advice to Turkish women in the afternoon before the entrance of a polling station. That writes RTV Rijnmond. On films that a party leader has made, it is clear that she advises women to vote against the security law and points them to the list of candidates. "An undesirable situation", says the municipality, which is not going to do any investigation.

Gregory Salcido, the LA-area high school teacher who went on an anti-military rant in class, has been fired.

Make no mistake: Salcido was not fired for expressing his point of view. He was fired for intimidating pro-military students in class and acting unprofessionally.

Is Sharia Enforcement Coming to America?

This article first appeared in New English Review.

The 57-member nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which constitutes the largest bloc within the UN, has for years lobbied to have the UN pass a resolution that all member nations should criminalize defamation of religions. In practice, what they mean is defamation of Islam. Given our First Amendment, most would scoff that the US would pass such a law. Yet, when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, she met  at least twice with the OIC behind closed doors in Washington and Istanbul. Publicly, she danced around the issue assuring the OIC that they would shame those who spoke out against Islam and its prophet.

Meanwhile in Europe, publicly criticizing Islam can get you criminally charged and dragged into a court of law. Just ask Elisabeth Sabaditsch Wolff in Austria. Just ask Dutch politician Geert Wilders. Ask Tommy Robinson in England. Of course, Europe has no First Amendment. Though it is democratic, if you engage in what they deem hate speech, it is criminalized.

Of course, our Constitution and the First Amendment protect us if we criticize Islam. Even genuine hate speech is considered protected speech in the US unless that speech directly incites violence. Thus, Jews on American college campuses have to endure anti-semitic speech coming from pro-Palestinian students and many of the speakers they invite to speak on campus. It's the price of having a free society where saying the wrong thing doesn't bring the police to haul you away.

On the other hand, Mort Zuckerberg engages in censorship on Facebook when Muslims are offended. YouTube will take down videos if they are deemed offensive to Muslims. But that doesn't involve bringing in the police.

But consider this. On March 14, I attended a public event at Golden West College, a public 2-year college in Orange County California. The event was entitled "Islam 101", and the invited speaker was Nicole Bovey, a convert to Islam and public information officer at the Islamic Institute of Orange County in Anaheim. She is also part of the Islamic Speakers Bureau. I and a few like-minded friends decided to attend since it was a public event. Since I am linking the full report and video I took, I will just briefly summarize what happened. When we began asking pointed questions about Islam, politely and when called upon for questions, our people were told by a faculty member that the questions were inappropriate. To make matters worse, the campus police were summoned and a couple of our people were made to go outside and talk to the cops.

Now that I have set the stage, here is my own posting on the event as well as the video I took. I encourage the reader to invest the time to watch it in its entirety and decide if our questions merited calling the police.

To be sure, we have written letters to the appropriate Golden West College administrators. If you follow the Frontpage Magazine link, where my post first appeared, you will see the names and contact numbers of these individuals. (Please be respectful, of course.)

We are reaching a dangerous point here in America when merely asking polite but pointed questions about certain aspects of Islam can result in efforts to silence you and summon campus police.

Pronoun Rules at Kennesaw State University

It just may be that Georgia will be the first Southern state to stop saying, "Y'all".

Rather than teach English, our universities are busy trying to change the English language. This is all part of a mad drive by the gender studies crowd to create non-gender specific pronouns.

As if foreign students trying to learn English didn't think it was hard enough as it is.

Sorry, Academia: Nobody authorized you to change the English language. It will change, alright over time, but it will be a natural process.

Madness at Mt Holyoke

An all-women's college in Massachusetts is instructing its professors to say "students" in class instead of using the word "women."

Viewer warning: These are not women

Professors at Mt Holyoke (women's) College are being instructed not to refer to their students as women.

"The Supporting Trans and Non-Binary Students guide was created by officials at Mount Holyoke to promote a “gender neutral” environment"

Any “biologically born female” can apply for admission, but only a “biologically born male” who “identifies as other/they/ze and when ‘other/they’ identity includes woman” and one who “identifies as a woman.”
