STEYN: The G-20 doesn’t offer plenty

No real answers among the media props

The great powers are erecting a global regulatory regime to export their worst mistakes to the entire planet.

Excerpts here:

Well, we all hate “the rich,” don’t we? Last week, David Paterson, the governor of New York, said that if he had known his latest tax increase would persuade Rush Limbaugh to sell his Manhattan apartment and leave the city, he would have raised taxes earlier. Ha-ha. Very funny. In New York City, as Mayor Michael Bloomberg has pointed out, the wealthiest 1 percent contribute 50 percent of municipal revenue. How tiny a number of people does Mr. Paterson have to drive out before it causes significant shortfalls in the public coffers?

rudd_mao3Australia’s Chairman Krudd: “all your super are belong to us…”

On the other hand, the rich can only be driven out if they’ve got somewhere to be driven to. At the ludicrous Group of 20 summit in London last week, the official communique crowed over a “clampdown” on tax havens – those British colonies in the Caribbean and a few other offshore pinpricks in the map. “The era of banking secrecy is over,” the G-20 proclaimed.

Does anyone seriously think a Swiss bank account or a post-office box in the Turks and Caicos is responsible for the global meltdown?

No, but the world’s governments have decided to focus on irrelevant scapegoats.

If government has a role in this crisis, it ought to be to reverse the combination of unaffordable social programs and deathbed demographics that make a restoration of real GDP growth all but impossible in many European nations. But that would involve telling the citizenry unpleasant truths, and Continental politicians who wish to remain electorally viable aren’t willing to do that. French President Nicolas Sarkozy, The Times of London reported, “said that the summit provided a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to give capitalism a conscience.”

* ‘Soaking The Rich’ Doesn’t Increase Tax Revenues

sarkozywifebig_468x500Sarkozy: “we are entitled to your nest egg…!”

What Mr. Sarkozy means by “a conscience” is a global regulatory regime that ensures there’s nowhere to move. If you’re France, which has a sluggish, uncompetitive, protectionist, high-unemployment business environment whose best and brightest abandon the country in ever-greater droves, it obviously makes sense to force the entire planet to submit to the same growth-killing measures that have done wonders for your own economy. But it’s not good news for the rest of the world. The building blocks for a global regulatory regime and even a global central bank with an embryo global currency (the International Monetary Fund and the enhanced role of “Special Drawing Rights”) are an ominous development.

Jihad by Demographics (Outbreeding)

Muslim Demographics

Common Sense Atheism linked to a video the other day about fertility rates in Europe and in Muslim countries. The point of the video is to say that Europe will be predominantly Muslim within fifty years or less, as a result of low birthrates among native Europeans and high birthrates among Muslim immigrants. I’ve seen these arguments over the past few years. It’s stuff promoted mainly by American Right-wing Christians, often with dire warnings that Europe will be Islamicized within 50 years, and America will stand alone in the world. For example, here’s a sample:

If there is anything that should make Americans’ blood run cold about immigration, it is the sight of Europe—and Britain, the home of Western civilization—being buried by millions of Muslim colonists. Europe is just hoping against hope that Islam isn’t going to explode into massive rioting (or worse), or impose total cultural Islamification.

* But don’t take my word for it. Watch the video:

Every mosque – factory for Jihad fighters…

* Londonistan: Yet another march pro-Palistan…

Now the triumphs of Tours and Vienna are being trampled by immigrants, entering mostly legally. It’s a wonder the Muslims bother with terrorism at all when demography is working so well for them.

Mark Steyn: Civilization Walks The Plank

*  Top US General in Afghanistan Calls Qur’an a ‘Very Good Book’…big-spending-negro1

The Reuters headline put it this way: “Pirates Pose Annoying Distraction For Obama.”

Mark Steyn

Mark Steyn

So many distractions, aren’t there? Only a week ago, the North Korean missile test was an “annoying distraction” from Barack Obama’s call for a world without nuclear weapons and his pledge that America would lead the way in disarming. And only a couple of days earlier the president insisted Iraq was a “distraction” – from what, I forget: The cooing press coverage of Michelle’s wardrobe? No doubt when the Iranians nuke Israel, that, too, will be an unwelcome distraction from the administration’s plans for federally subsidized day care, just as Pearl Harbor was an annoying distraction from the New Deal, and the First World War was an annoying distraction from the Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s dinner plans

If the incompetent management driving The New York Times from junk status to oblivion wished to decelerate their terminal decline, they might usefully amend their motto to “All The News That’s Fit To Distract.” Tom Blumer of Newsbusters notes that in the past 30 days there have been some 2,500 stories featuring Obama and “distractions,” as opposed to about 800 “distractions” for Bush in his entire second term. The sub-headline of the Reuters story suggests the unprecedented pace at which the mountain of distractions is piling up: “First North Korea, Iran – now Somali pirates.”

Honor Killing Victims…

Steyn: “If it weren’t for the frothing loony ranting wackjob haters of the blogosphere a 16-year old girl murdered for not wanting to be imprisoned by her family’s culture would be entirely forgotten”

Robert Spencer: 

Mark Steyn weighs in on the National Post’s Chris Selley’s smear of Pamela Geller’s attempt to memorialize honor killing victim Aqsa Parvez — an attempt I have been proud to support and assist: “Aqsa to grind,” by Mark Steyn, February 21 (thanks to JW):

For reasons best known to himself, The National Post’s Chris Selley chose to pick a fight with the few people who want to ensure that Aqsa Parvez’s short life is memorialized by something more than the plot number of an unmarked grave. Pamela Geller and Kathy Shaidle can take care of themselves, and have done, but the reality is that if it weren’t for the frothing loony ranting wackjob haters of the blogosphere a 16-year old girl murdered for not wanting to be imprisoned by her family’s culture would be entirely forgotten.So what’s more offensive? The moral outrage of Pamela Geller at the westernization of “honor killing”? Or the mainstream coverage by a politically correct media? Here’s what the lunchtime poll at Toronto’s CITY-TV thought was the big issue arising from Aqsa Parvez’s murder:

Do you think society discriminates against women who wear a hijab?

Gotcha. It’s our fault.

Mark Steyn: "We can’t have chaps walking around saying Muslims are violent because they’ll go bananas and smash the place up"

             

Steyn on truth, Wilders, Muslims, and the inimitable dhimmi Jacqui Smith: “From Islamabad to Bradford: Degrees of accommodation,”

by Mark Steyn in National Review, February 21 (thanks to JW):

Anyway, Geert Wilders’s short film is basically a compilation video of footage from various recent Muslim terrorist atrocities — whoops, sorry, “anti-Islamic activities” — accompanied by the relevant chapter and verse from the Koran. Jacqui Smith banned the filmmaker on “public order” grounds — in other words, the government’s fear that Lord Ahmed meant what he said about a 10,000-strong mob besieging the Palace of Westminster. You might conceivably get the impression from Wilders’s movie that many Muslims are irrational and violent types it’s best to steer well clear of. But, if you didn’t, Jacqui Smith pretty much confirmed it: We can’t have chaps walking around saying Muslims are violent because they’ll go bananas and smash the place up.

Mark Steyn Column

In the Swat Valley, where a young Winston Churchill once served with the Malakand Field Force battling Muslim insurgents, his successors have concluded the game isn’t worth the candle. In return for a temporary ceasefire, the Pakistani government agreed to let the local franchise of the Taliban impose its industrial strength version of Sharia across the whole of Malakand Region. Malakand has more than five million people, all of whom are now living under a murderous theocracy. Still, peace rallies have broken out all over the Swat Valley, and, at a Swat peace rally, it helps to stand well back: As one headline put it, “Journalist Killed While Covering Peace Rally.”

Headless body in gutless press [Mark Steyn]

From The Corner

                 

          Mark Steyn, here with Pamela Geller from Atlas Shrugs

Mark Steyn is not the only one who has become increasingly fed up with the gutless wankers from our so-called ‘free press:’

Just asking, but are beheadings common in western New York? I used to spend a lot of time in that neck of the woods and I don’t remember decapitation as a routine form of murder. Yet the killing of Aasiya Hassan seems to have elicited a very muted response.

When poor Mrs Hassan’s husband launched his TV network to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims, he had no difficulty generating column inches, as far afield asThe Columbus Dispatch, The Detroit Free Press, The San Jose Mercury News, Variety, NBC News, the Voice of America and the Canadian Press. The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle put the couple on the front page under the headline “Infant TV Network Unveils The Face Of Muslim News”.

* The Puff Ho, -always on the wrong side of the tracks- worries about  whether the Muslim  propaganda TV channel BridgesTV mission  will continue…

* Pakistan Dawn, the Nation, the Daily Times … Pakistan’s media seems less timid about covering a New York state beheading than does media in the US. Meanwhile, a gem of understatement from Croatia: 

Muzzammil Hassan established his own TV network to show Muslims in a good light. Decapitation charges will not help.

Intellectual Freedom in Canada: Mark Steyn "addresses" the legislative hearing on the Ontario Human Rights Commission – with a haymaker

From Post Darwinist Denyse O’Leary

*  Ezra Levant also rips defamatory ‘activist’ Andrea Calvert a new one: Michael Coren Show today

                      

* Steyn: if you are not rich or powerful, “the Ontario Human Rights regime will destroy your savings, your business, your life, for no good reason.” And:  the human right “not to be offended” should not exist in a free society. That’s the first and most basic thing that this system failed. 

 Fire. Them. All.

News Service roundup, I reported that Mark Steyn was to testify against the anti-civil rights Human Rights Commission today. I am just back, and am transcribing what he said, in sections, below. Update: Here’s a leaked transcript of the whole day (all the witnesses).

This from the earlier story:

Commentator Mark “one-man global content provider” Steyn is testifying today on the Ontario “human rights” commission (= trampling civil liberties in the name of social engineering) at the province of Ontario’s legislature (Queen’s Park), Room 155. Ontario’s commission dropped its charges against Steyn for his famous Maclean’s article, an excerpt from his book, America Alone, but issued a media release implying that he really was guilty – which gives you some idea how much it resembles a real court. As Kathy “I’m with the banned” Shaidle says, “Can’t find room 151? Just follow the buzzing sound: Steyn tends to be surrounded by a flock of ardent admirers.”

Mark Steyn: The 'oldest hatred' lives, from Gaza to Florida

Jew-hating pathologies ultimately harm the Jew-hater, too.

Mark Steyn    

Mark Steyn
Syndicated columnist

In Toronto, anti-Israel demonstrators yell “You are the brothers of pigs!,” and a protester complains to his interviewer that “Hitler didn’t do a good job.”

In Fort Lauderdale, Palestinian supporters sneer at Jews, “You need a big oven, that’s what you need!”

In Amsterdam, the crowd shouts, “Hamas, Hamas! Jews to the gas!”

In Paris, the state-owned TV network France-2 broadcasts film of dozens of dead Palestinians killed in an Israeli air raid on New Year’s Day. The channel subsequently admits that, in fact, the footage is not from Jan. 1, 2009, but from 2005, and, while the corpses are certainly Palestinian, they were killed when a truck loaded with Hamas explosives detonated prematurely while leaving the Jabaliya refugee camp in another of those unfortunate work-related accidents to which Gaza is sadly prone. Conceding that the Palestinians supposedly killed by Israel were, alas, killed by Hamas, France-2 says the footage was broadcast “accidentally.”

“Of all the extreme fanaticism which plays havoc in man’s nature, there is not one as irrational as anti-Semitism. … If the Jews are rich [these fanatics] are victims of theft. If they are poor, they are victims of ridicule. If they take sides in a war, it is because they wish to take advantage from the spilling of non-Jewish blood. If they espouse peace, it is because they are scared by their natures or traitors. If the Jew dwells in a foreign land he is persecuted and expelled. If he wishes to return to his own land, he is prevented from doing so.”

Mark Steyn wins against Muhammedan sock puppets and Canuckistan's perversion of 'human rights'

Andrew Bolt 

Canada’s human rights police have rightly cleared columnist Mark Steyn of hate speech:

The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal ruled today that … the article, an excerpt from Mark Steyn’s book America Alone in which he describes the demographic and ideological dangers posed by a growing Muslim population in the West, was not likely to expose Muslims to hatred or contempt.

The Canadian Islamic Congress, which brought the complaint, has previously failed in two other jurisdictions: Ontario, which said it did not have jurisdiction over printed material, and federally, where the complaint was rejected as without merit.

But the damage is done. Which other commentator would want the stress, legal costs, distraction and calumny involved with being hauled through one forum after another over a couple of years to defend their good name?

One cure for this cancer, of course, is to make the Canadian Islamic Council pay the costs of its attempt to kill free speech – and pay so much that it learns that free speech is a lot, lot cheaper and healthier than expensive censorship.

Here’s THE VERDICT

* From Michelle Malkin:

The Steyn trial, along with other lesser known but equally troubling cases, are chronicled in the new book The Tyranny of Nice: How Canada crushes freedom in the name of human rights, written by Kathy Shaidle and Pete Vere (www.TyrannyOfNice.com)

Authors Kathy Shaidle and Pete Vere commented today on the verdict in the Steyn & Maclean’s case:

“Unfortunately, this decision is only a partial victory for Mark Steyn, Maclean’s magazine and every other writer and publisher in Canada.
