The Retro Feminist may be The Real Feminist

I have a confession to make:  I am a woman who is vexed by today’s feminists. For example, just because Margaret Thatcher wasn’t a “social justice warrior” as one of the most influential Western leaders during one of the most formative times in the modern era, Feministe blog deems that the the…

The reaction to Margaret Thatcher’s death is painfully predictable. The right is honoring her service in standing up to socialism and communism at home and abroad, while the left is vilifying her for standing up to socialism and communism at home and abroad. The haters are hating. Others like Glenn Greenwald are picking at…

As we have pointed out until we were Blue in the face, the toxic combination of union and Democratic control of almost every aspect of Rhode Island has created an economic death spiral in which Rhode Island has the highest unemployment in the nation and is losing population. Yet we sure does…

Margaret Thatcher and the “oxygen of publicity”

Earlier today Prof Jacobson noted the passing former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. What I remember most about her was a speech she gave in 1985 to the American Bar Association in which she argued against giving terrorists the “oxygen of publicity.” The more open our society, the more we must be on…

#OpIsrael or #OpPallywood? — Reports of Israel’s internet demise appear greatly exaggerated

Posted by
4/8/2013 at 7:45am
Hackers claiming association to Anonymous continued their cyberattack on Israeli websites throughout the day Sunday, a reprise of their 2012 operation dubbed #OpIsrael. Official reports from Israeli authorities remained largely unchanged from earlier in the weekend.  While the attacks caused some minor temporary disruptions to some websites, no significant damage is said…

Mandy will have an update on #OpIsrael either later tonight or in the morning. My suspicion is that we have another historic Palestinian victory inflicting severe injury on the Zionist entity, just like all their other victories. One of the victories attempted by the hackers was to take down the Yad Vashem Museum…

SPLC — milking old northern liberals for decades

Posted by

I have written so many times about the fundraising charade conducted by the Southern Poverty Law Center, in which “hate group” numbers are inflated and fear mongering is used to pump up SPLC’s massive endowment used to pay enormous salaries. As with the proverbial broken clock, SPLC occasionally is right about a…

Is #OpIsrael invited to CUNY’s Homonationalism and Pinkwashing Conference?

Posted by
4/7/2013 at 11:27am
We have written numerous times about the depraved “pinkwashing” narrative, that Israel must be condemned by gay rights activists for publicizing the fact that it is the only country in the Middle East where gays are not persecuted. That simple truth is too much for the anti-Israeli activists to bear because it…

#OpIsrael Hack versus Counter-Hack

Posted by
4/6/2013 at 9:15pm
Last November, a faction claiming association to the hacker collective Anonymous launched #OpIsrael, in retaliation for Israel’s strikes on Gaza. Earlier this week, those operations were resurrected in another wave of #OpIsrael that is scheduled to commence on April 7th, the date of Holocaust Memorial Day. The Op Israel account on Twitter has…
