With major terrorist attacks coming in rapid succession lately, it’s time to take a closer look at what causes a particular attack to get extensive media coverage.  Some people complained that the recent attack in Istanbul didn’t get nearly the coverage of the Brussels attack, just like they complained when ruthless attacks in Nigeria didn’t get the coverage of the Paris attacks.

If we carry out police crackdowns just because people are Muslim and ratchet up the torturing in response to ISIS attacks, the terrorists have won. I know it sounds dramatic, but it’s true.

Let’s take a few breaths and realize that ISIS is not about to take over the world. Sure, they’re doing abhorrent things and are ruthless villains, but as evil as they are, they are small in number— which is why they have to resort to terror attacks.

Pam Geller’s Islamification

There are only so many ways you can say, “shooting cartoonists is wrong and free speech is great.” Feel free to check out my previous responses to cartoonists being attacked or Muhammad cartoons being drawn. When I heard about the “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, I was curious about who would organize such a “festival.” (Having organized a cartoon festival myself, I think you can hardly call a two-hour meeting a “festival,” but I digress.)

Racist EZ-Cash

Now that the Department of Justice report on Ferguson has been released, the veil has been lifted on a corrupt system that bled that town’s African-American citizens of their income, rights and freedom.
