Michigan’s Moderate Muslims

You gotta see this. Moderate muslims telling you what they really think.

islamo delenda est.

What could possibly go wrong here?

A Detroit-area school district says it’s allowing Sikh students to wear a small, religious dagger to school, MyFoxDetroit.com reports.

The decision by the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools reverses a ban put in place in December after a fourth-grader at a Canton Township elementary school was found with a dull, 3- to 5-inch kirpan.

The kirpan represents a commitment to fight evil in the Sikh tradition. The dagger is a religious symbol that baptized Sikh males are expected to carry.

How bad is it in Detroit?

Is this is any indication?

Nearly 35 years after taxpayers spent $55.7 million building the Pontiac Silverdome and a year after a $20 million sale fell through, city officials have sold the arena once called the most desirable property in Oakland County.

The price: $583,000.

“This was a giveaway,” said David J. Leitch, a broker with an Auburn Hills based realty firm.

By my calculations, that’s about 1% of the actual cost to build the dome.

The winning bidders also got the surrounding 127 acres thrown in for free.

So, how bad is it in Detroit?

Scary bad.

Thursday Reading List

hillary_book_finesthour.jpgDick Morris provides us with a Hillary Clinton score card of lies … ones she has admitted to and ones she won’t confess to.

Chelsea Clinton says that this college student was the first person to ever ask her about Hillary’s handling of the Monica Lewinsky scandal … yeah right.

Of course a socialist, anti-American dictator would not want John McCain to be the next US president.

This list of recent Bush pardons should show you how completely asinine some of our laws are in this country.

Here’s a global warming movement I can get into … just deal with it.

When your city gets sued by the ACLU and costs taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, the logical solution is to declare an official “American Civil Liberties Union Day.”

In Central Florida and cities around the country, Real estate agents are starting to set up Foreclosure Bus Tours.

When the government feels it is necessary to track “adult material” in the state … something tells me that paying a $250 fee and registering with the secretary of state is going to be met with some resistance.

The IRS finally realizes there is such a thing as YouTube and dedicates it first video to sending you money.

Government at its finest … a soldier who served more than four years in the British Army has been told that he can’t become a citizen because he applied on the wrong date.

Can somebody please tell me what is wrong with this story? The building is being demolished. It catches on fire. Shouldn’t someone thank Mother Nature?

What happened when Chicago imposed a tax on bottled water? Well one thing is for sure, the politicians are upset that their constituents have outsmarted them.

A local barber shop in Michigan has been told that it can no longer serve a free beer with a cut … because the government said so.

This is absolutely the most useless information you will ever need to know about the current presidential candidates.

Identity Politics in Nevada

From the Associated Press:

On the Republican side, Mormons comprised a quarter of those attending Nevada’s GOP caucuses, and more than nine in 10 were voting for Romney. Romney is a Mormon, and his religion has been cited as a problem by some Republican voters.

About half of Romney’s overall vote in Nevada came from Mormons.

This would seem to be a clear-cut case of “identity politics.” Fine with me. I don’t give a hoot why a voter chooses to vote for a particular candidate. It isn’t any of my business. It isn’t anybody else’s business either.

Mike Huckabee has been criticized and reviled by a large number of conservative pundits and molders of conservative opinion for “identity politics.”

NRO’s Kathryn Lopez’s , in a post-Iowa Caucus piece captures the truly dramatic rhetoric from Michigan congressman Pete Hoekstra, who says he is “scared.” According to the Congressman, the identity politics of the Huckabee campaign, and the implied bigotry of Christians who will not support a Mormon candidate causes divisiveness, is a threat to world peace, apple pie, and the Rule of Law.

Republicans “need to stick up for our principles,” Hoekstra told National Review Online on Monday afternoon. We’re about “freedom and opportunity” — we don’t exclude people based on such things as race or gender, class or religion. But Hoekstra sees the Huckabee campaign as a divisive vessel of religious and class warfare.

No doubt Hoekstra, Lopez, Lowry, et al, have a perfectly reasonable explanation for the fact that 9 out of 10 Mormon voters in Nevada supported the Mormon candidate. And, we can be absolutely sure that it has “nothing at all to do with religion.”

After hearing CAIR deliver that same line for the last 6+ years, hearing NRO use jihadist rhetoric will be strange, to say the least.

But with NRO’s implicit support of Congressman Hoekstra for using Al Sharpton’s rhetoric, then I guess we really shouldn’t be too surprised.

Update: (1/21)
Chas Johnson calls Huck a Leftist.

This time last year, there was a lot of buzz over at his blog as to whether or not the social conservatives would support Rudy if he won the nomination. I thought so, at that time. Seeing this come from the self-proclaimed leader of the counter-jihad, I am now not so sure.

You don’t win support by trying to marginalize potential allies. But, since Rudy has been invisible in the Republican race up to this point, I suppose Johnson is just releasing some pent-up energy, and the same can probably be said of Tammy Bruce’s statement that she would vote for the donk candidate rather than vote for Huck.

So, Johnson and Bruce join the NRO-WSJ chorus, accusing Huck of being unable to expand his base. The unspoken irony is that none of the leading candidates have been able to do so.
