I read While Europe Slept as few years ago and I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone here. Mainly because it's a good, well-written book about the threat of radical Islam in the west. But also because it provides hope that even the most ardent, kool-aid drinking liberal can see the light and join us in the good fight against the forces out to annihilate us.

While Europe Slept is Bruce Bawer's autobiographical account of his immigration to Norway in the late 1990s. Bawer is a gay American journalist. And he decided to move to Norway back then because he felt that Europe would be a more tolerant and safe environment for him as a gay man than the United States (a place that he felt was controlled by homophobic Christians out to oppress him).
.....and then he learned the hard way that he was totally wrong.

As cliché as this sounds; this book made me feel proud to be and American. Please go check it out!

A 15-year-old boy in Oakland, California admitted to murdering his parents. Robert Kamin, 55, and Susan Poff, 50 were found dead in their vehicle after they'd failed to show up for work and calls to the home (answered by the son) led co-workers to contact police (in the first call, the boy said his parents went out for a walk; in the second, he claimed his father was in the bathroom and couldn't answer the phone). When police arrived, they noticed the vehicle was charred, as if someone tried to set it on fire. When they saw a limb under a blanket in the backseat, they opened the door and found the bodies of the boy's parents.

Mr Kamin worked for the San Francisco county jail system as a clinical psychologist. Mrs Poff worked at the Housing and Urban Health Clinic for the city's health department as a physicians assistant. They adopted their son within the last ten years.

Colleagues say they were aware the parents had been having problems with their son over his spending too much time at the Occupy Oakland camps. Though the police have yet to release any information as to the young man's identity or motives for the crime, one has to wonder if he lashed out due to an ultimatum given by his parents.

This is the second death tied to Occupy Oakland since the movement started in late September 2011. The first was a shooting in which one of the suspects and the victim had both been involved with Occupy Oakland. The victim had been staying in the encampment.

Maybe I missed some stories, but this seemed like a slower news week to me. Which, naturally, makes some of the awful stuff I did note stand out more. Articles I feel are particularly important are bolded, as usual.

and i utterly repudiate and excoriate this bastard. and i find the response from the "big sky tea party associaton" unacceptably tepid, to boot. don't be like kanjorski and talk even jokingly about murdering your opponents. (this person doesn't understand individual rights, anyway. gay marriage does not/would not take away his constitutional rights!)

we know what your reaction would have been if sarah palin had said this about giffords:

"Instead of running [to represent Arizona] they ought to have her and shoot her. Put her against the wall and shoot her."

and you would have been right. and i know that a number of people here, i among them, would have been with you. shooting innocent persons is a violation of their individual rights, their liberty, and individual liberty is precious to us.

okay, so: to use your favorite locution: where were you when this was said -

"Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have [Rick Scott] and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him."

who said that? the terrifying teabagger paul kanjorski. y'know, the guy who airily opined in the new york times op-ed page yesterday: "it is incumbent on all Americans to create an atmosphere of civility and respect in which political discourse can flow freely, without fear of violent confrontation." "Paul E. Kanjorski (born April 2, 1937) is the former U.S. Representative for Pennsylvania's 11th congressional district, serving from 1985 until 2011. He is a member of the Democratic Party. The district includes the cities of Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, and Hazleton, as well as most of the Poconos." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_E._Kanjorski

where were you there? no targeting marks. no "hidden threat of violence beneath the surface" (the best kind of violence - the kind that doesn't manifest yet can be used against your political opponent). an open call to assassinate a political opponent.

now listen to kanjorski's excuse. it is priceless: Reached by phone Tuesday, Kanjorski said "only fruitcakes" would take his statement about Scott literally. The 73-year-old Democrat from Nanticoke, who this fall lost in his bid for a 14th term representing the 11th Congressional District, admitted he's well known for using "colorful language." "I probably would never have made the statement if I anticipated anything like this happening," Kanjorski said. "It was obviously not in humor, but not literally."

- http://washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/2011/01/kanjorski-only-fruitcakes-would-take-my-call-shoot-governor-liter

don't like the washington examiner? let's use the notorious tea party rag, the wall street journal: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704803604576077892006683586.html

so when a democrat openly calls for assassination, it's just "colorful language" that "only a fruitcake" (!!!) would be influenced by - and that makes it okay. but targeting marks of the same order used by dems - by the way, surveyors shoot a line - those have magical demon powers when used by sarah palin.

okay, leftists. so where were you? how many crazies is kanjorski's call for assassination influencing right now, and how will it come out? how many crazies are being influenced by your frothing about bushitler, end of the world, global uninhabitability, etc.? and what are you going to do about - by your own premises - your own responsibility for violence.

answer. now. rationalize away kanjorski's call for assassination and your own utter lack of response. explain to us the subtle ways in which a democrat's call for murder is A-OK.
