"[it's] one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset."Thus spoke Barack Hussein Obama, right after reciting the Islamic call to prayer in Arabic—with a "first-rate accent"—for New York Times' Nicholas Kristof.
No wonder Hamas terrorists love the guy. Jihad Jerk Approved!

Well, there's a tad more to it than just that:
"are the French literally mentally challenged? Bardot “incited racial hatred” by commenting upon sheep sacrifice? Really?"
Allow me to sum up this here rant once again: while it is definitely wrong for la Bardot to be put on trial for expressing her opinion publicly, there's a bit more to her and this affair than simply "commenting upon sheep sacrifice".
In no specific order, despite the ordered listing below:
- She's not just a former uberbabe turned nice little old lady who cares for the poor little sheep, but basically France's PeTA all by herself. No, I'm not kidding.
- Beyond her multiple expressions of disgust for many nasty Muhammadan habits, she is also an old xenophobic hag, in bed (politically and literally as a matter of fact) with France's Le Pen National Front.
Again, she shouldn't be prosecuted for having an opinion—because that's what this whole affair boils down to, in effect—but the law of the land in France is for certain opinions to be deemed unacceptable, and the people expressing them to be prosecuted1. That is true for Holocaust revisionists, and that is also true—thank in no small part to the legitimacy and political weight offered on a platter to radical Islam by the Left and one Sarkozy, Nicolas, via the French Muslim Council he singlehandedly forced through2—for critics of Islam like the xenophobic hag Bardot or more sensible—or shall I say, more considered—dissenters like French writer Michel Houellebecq.
Is it wrong? Yes. Is it arbitrary? Considering the vast amounts of politically correct anti-Semitism ("anti-Zionism"), anti-Americanism, apology of each and every mass murdering Communist and Third World dictator as well as plain anti-white racism flowing with complete impunity over the air and in print in France on a daily basis, yeah, you can bet your ass—whatever its color—that it is indeed arbitrary.
Am I deeply opposed to such arbitrary laws and practices, and despite the fact that I hold nothing but contempt for the xenophobic hag, do I think that this kind of pseudo justice is one of the most repulsive aspect of French society?
Oh, you must be new around here. Welcome to my blog.

UK parliament approves EU treatyBritain was once the thorn in the side of every European autocrat, from Napoleon to Hitler, and a shining beacon for many a freedom craving European (on both sides of the Iron Curtain, when there was still such a thing). It seems that with the Irish, the node of resistance to continental authoritarianism moved further West, while the UK finally fell into the hands of Central Command, 1 Death Star Av., Brussels, Belgium1
The UK has effectively ratified the EU's reform treaty - despite the decision by Irish voters to reject it.
There's is a sad irony in watching the spectacle of the European "Union" renouncing and trampling upon its purported democratic values in order to keep itself afloat, but that's pretty much all the fun there is. Only one of those naive fools who keep hoping in something good out of this bureaucratic fabrication might be depressed by this carnival of rogues and rascals—but anybody endowed with a healthy dose of cynicism knows that with the EU, only the worse can be expected.
Still, the shame this time is on this 21st century British Parliament, for ultimately surrendering to the French and Germans.
I shall spit in their general direction, and curse them as only a French can curse2.

Like President Bush, The Arizona rifleman is travelling Europe, and he has a question:
"Singapore had a contingent of guards at the [Buckingham—DF] palace (...) The Singaporean troops were carrying chrome- or nickel-plated M16A1s, which struck me as a bit weird. Does anyone know if these rifles could be functional if so plated, or if they’re only suitable for parades and whatnot?"
I can't think of any reason why a chrome-plated barrel would disable the gun. I'm quite sure however that it would make it quite unpractical for anything that requires event the slightest degree of "discretion" and camouflage. And, oh boy, cleaning the piece must be something else.
The Guard at Buckingham is, with all due respect, quite a spectacle indeed--so much so that it's easy to overlook the fact that these guys are nevertheless the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland's guards. I'm fairly certain that they're not selected and tasked there just because they can stand to attention looking pretty.
Considering how Europe's monarchs, all over the ages, made it an habit to pick up elite troops as their close guard, I'd also risk the guess that glittery M16A1s or not, it would be a most unfortunate idea to try anything funny at those Singaporeans guards.
As we wish the Arizona shooter an instructive, and even possibly pleasant trip around Europe, let's conclude with an amusing historical fact in that respect. When the Allied powers of the time first managed to defeat the proto-fascist Napoleon (so-called "great Emperor of France and General of Europe"), he was granted a personal guard of several hundreds men to join him in his exile on Elba. Ironically enough, the man who is still worshiped by most French (including high profile ones, like the infamous de Villepin and the frantic space-wasting gnome Sarkozy) picked up a squad of Polish Uhlans (light cavalry) as his personal bodyguards—Men made of the same steel as the 87 that charged 9,000 Spaniards and 16 guns dug in at Somosierra Pass. Apparently, even the "Emperor of all the French" wouldn't trust his own kin when his personal safety was at stakes.
After the abdication of the "great Emperor of France", the last and short-lived old school monarch Louis-Philippe, King of the French, created another elite unit: the Foreign Legion that still lives and fights on to this day, at the tip of France's spear.
Don't tell me you can't see a pattern here.

Champagne is merely the piss of a Parisian prostitute, and I don't drink that stuff, but I do break the Jameson and take my hat off. Cheers to the Irish! I spent some of the best times of my life (so far) in Ireland (far too) many moons ago, and I'm glad to see that the Irish live up to my memories.
