The modern battle of Britain

- July 16th, 2012

Politicians who don’t get the military, and not just here in Canada, have a bad habit of starving the armed forces of equipment and manpower and giving soldiers, sailors and airpersons inadequate pay and perks… and then casually assuming they can do anything on a moment’s notice, from ousting Muammar Gadhafi to fixing natural disasters to stepping up on domestic security issues.

No, there won’t be any apology

For what it’s worth, I don’t believe Romney needs to bend over backwards trying to make establishment Republicans and members of the legacy media happy. People who don’t like Mitt Romney won’t like him any better, and people who are determined to vote for him just to get Barack Obama out of the White House won’t care.

Oh, really?

Street imam

Some street imam (translation: A preacher who’s so lame he can’t even find a mosque to preach at) says Canada needs to change its rules and force women to cover up more, to avoid sexual assault.

Canadian laws should be changed to require women to “cover themselves” to prevent sexual assaults, says an Islamic street preacher in Toronto.

Al-Haashim Kamena Atangana, a 33-year-old Islamic convert, called for legal change in response to recent sex attacks at York University.

Atangana is connected with a group called Muslim Support Network and is one of a number of street-corner clerics commonly seen at the Yonge and Dundas Sts.

In an e-mail to the Toronto Sun, Atangana said “the reason … these sex attacks are continuously happening is because (of) Canadian laws, which give too much freedom to women” when it comes to how they dress.

“You should take your example from the way Muslim women dress,” he wrote. “Why does (sic) Muslim women who wear long dress and covers her head aren’t targeted for sex attacks?”

Right. Because there’s no rape in Muslim countries.

You need strong arguments against this kind of stuff. Personally, I like a stiff palm strike to the chin. That’s how you deal with a guy who grabs you because he can’t control himself.

Bonus question: Will the Slutwalk organizers protest this one and go strut their stuff on that preacher’s street corner?
