Pathetic: Paris Art Exhibition Removes Artwork Deemed Blasphemous By Islamic Group…

French back to waving their white flags.

Via Telegraph:

An artwork depicting high-heeled shoes on Islamic prayer mats has been removed from an exhibition after a Muslim group warned of possible violence in the wake of the Paris attacks.

The French-Algerian artist, Zoulikha Bouabdellah, withdrew the work from an exhibition in a northern Paris suburb with a large Muslim population after an Islamic group told local authorities it could provoke “uncontrollable, irresponsible incidents”.

It is considered disrespectful to step on Muslim prayer maps with shoes.

Ms Bouabdellah has replaced the artwork, “Silence”, previously exhibited in Paris, New York, Berlin and Madrid, with a video installation showing belly-dancing to the French national anthem, with swirling red, white and blue shawls symbolising the national flag.

The decision sparked protests from other artists who complained that freedom of expression was being undermined only weeks after 12 people were killed when gunmen attacked the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. Another four people were killed at a kosher supermarket, and a policewoman was shot dead near a Jewish school.

Dem Rep Nails Obama Over His Refusal To Say “Islamic Extremism”…

Via Washington Times:

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, an Iraq War veteran, issued a scathing assessment Tuesday of President Obama’s refusal to utter the words “Islamic extremism” in reference to recent terror attacks, calling the omission a threat to the safety of the nation.

“This is not just about words,” the Hawaii Democrat told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “It’s not about semantics. It’s really about having a real, true understanding of who our enemy is and how important that is, that we have to understand what their motivation is and what their ideology is — the radical Islamic ideology that is fueling them.”

Ms. Gabbard took umbrage with Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent assertion that the criminal conduct of terrorists with the Islamic State and al Qaeda is “rooted in alienation, poverty, thrill-seeking and other factors,” which she said is flat-out wrong.

Iraqis Watch “American Sniper” In Baghdad: “Shoot Him! He Has An IED! Don’t Wait For Permission!”…

american-sniper

Nice job, Iraqis, you just made Michael Moore cry, I hope you are happy with yourselves.

Via Global Post:

When Gaith Mohammed, a young man in his twenties with a degree in accounting, went to see “American Sniper” during its opening week at Baghdad’s Mansour Mall, he says the theater was full and rowdy.

“Some people watching were just concentrating, but others were screaming ‘F*ck, shoot him! He has an IED, don’t wait for permission!!’” Mohammed laughed, recounting the film’s many tense scenes when US Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, played by Bradley Cooper, radios in for authorization to take out a potential threat in his crosshairs.

The film, set during the US-led occupation of Iraq and released on Christmas Day, hit nerves in the United States immediately. Some critics and commentators lauded it as patriotic and unflinching; others dismissed it as reductionist and racist. …

Mohammed, who lived through the events in Baghdad the film depicts, admits that scenes where women and children were killed were hard for him to watch. But all in all he liked the movie.

“I love watching war movies because especially now they give me the strength to face ISIS,” he said, using one of the acronyms for the Islamic State. When asked if he thought the movie was racist or anti-Arab — a charge made by some critics in the West — he replied, “No, why? The sniper was killing terrorists, the only thing that bothered me was when he said he didn’t know anything about the Quran!”

Loretta Lynch: Yeah, Illegal Aliens Have Just As Much Of A Right To Work As American Citizens…

Oh, really?

Via Breitbart:

President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General of the United States, Loretta Lynch, said on Wednesday during a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing that she thinks illegal aliens have the same right to work in America as American citizens do.

“Senator, I believe the right and the obligation to work is one that is shared by everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here,” Lynch said when asked by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) who has a greater right to work: Illegal aliens, or lawful immigrants and American citizens?

“Certainly, if someone is here—regardless of status—I would prefer that they be participating in the workplace than not participating in the workplace,” Lynch said.

She also said she doesn’t believe that Obama’s executive action on immigration is an “amnesty.”

Moonbat Berkeley Students Protest “Animal Exploitation” Over Domino’s Thanking Cows For Milk…

Domino's-Pizza

No words. Wish we could say this is a joke…but it’s not.

Via Campus Reform:

Thanking cows for milk is “animal exploitation,” according to students at the University of California, Berkeley.

Members of UC Berkeley’s Organization for Animal Advocacy gathered outside a local Domino’s Pizza recently to protest the chain’s latest pizza box design, which allegedly endorses the ‘rape and forcible impregnation’ of dairy cows.

Printed atop pizza boxes, the design thanks dairy cows for their milk since it’s a necessary ingredient in most Domino’s pizzas.

“This pizza couldn’t have been made without help from Stella, Edna, Abigail, Estelle and Nancy… [w]ithout them, your cheesy and delicious pizza would be, well, less cheesy and delicious,” the ad reads.

“Today we’re protesting Domino’s recent advertisements that ‘thank’ dairy cows for their ‘help’ in enabling them to make pizza,” BOAA wrote on their Facebook page on the day of the protest. “It is never okay to rape someone, steal their children and milk, or kill someone for palette pleasure. Help us speak on behalf of dairy cows today.”

It’s called “Google,” you should try it sometime.

Via Daily Mail:

Parents with students at one California high school recently learned that two Planned Parenthood employees who taught their impressionable children sex education also held down some controversial side jobs.

One of the sex-ed instructors at Acalanes Union High School in Lafayette also taught a class on sex toys at a nearby shop while the other identified herself as a ‘pleasure activist’ on her now-deleted Twitter profile.

The job history of the two teachers was revealed after parents learned about the school’s partnership with Planned Parenthood and demanded the curriculum be changed.

Some of the parents felt that Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides complimentary reproductive and women’s health services, was actually encouraging their children to start having sex.

Via Ynet:

While their senior counterparts have been testing new homemade rockets and rebuilding the terror tunnel infrastructure, more than 10,000 teenagers arrived at an Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades training compound.

Under the guise of a program named “Pioneers of the Resistance,” the Palestinian youths – aged 15 to 21 – underwent intensive military training, including exercises simulating operations of Hamas naval commandos.

The participants of the militant camp were also trained in firing sniper rifles, using the portraits of Israeli leaders for targets. The Palestinian youth simulated attacks on Israeli destinations through model terror tunnels, meant to recreate the experience of infiltrating Israeli territory.

All training exercises were conducted using firearms and under strict military conditions. Hamas treats the camps with tactical consideration, as its participants are seen by the Gazan terror group to be the next generation of fighters against Israel.

Then again, John Kerry has always been open about his support for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Via Free Beacon:

The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.

One member of the delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page.

That delegation member, Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood.

The delegation also includes Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor.

With the governor’s office claiming it has nothing to do with her being a transgender…. I know, stop laughing.

Via Newsmax:

A transgender physician will soon become Pennsylvania’s new physician general, the Washington Blade reported.

Dr. Rachel Levine, an expert in adolescent eating disorders and behavior health, was nominated for the Commonwealth’s highest medical post by progressive Gov. Tom Wolf.

She made her transition from man to woman five years ago, and with her appointment will become “the highest-ranking transgender person to ever hold a position within state government,” the Blade said.

Levine graduated from Harvard College and Tulane University Medical School, and has practiced pediatrics and psychiatry for about three decades, PennLive reported. She has been a physician at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center since 1996 and also serves as a professor of pediatrics and psychiatry at the Penn State College of Medicine, the website site.

The governor’s spokesman said Levine was chosen because of her expertise, not because she is transgender, The American Mirror reported.
“Dr. Rachel Levine is well-respected in the fields of pediatrics, psychiatry, and behavioral health, where she has practiced for close to three decades,” the governor said in statement about her selection.

I’m guessing they aren’t as lethal as Chris Kyle.

Via Daily Mail:

The Islamic State has released the first pictures of its own sniper battalion in what appears to be propaganda to answer the hit US film, American Sniper.

Bearded as well as clean-shaven members of the eight-man unit are pictured posing with long-range Russian-made Dragunov sniper rifles in northern Iraq.

Adopting the look of an American sniper unit, the fighters are kitted out in khaki uniforms, peaked caps and ski goggles to protect them from the glare of the sun.

According to the US-based jihadi tracking organisation, Site, the unit is part of the Ninewa Division of northern Iraq. It is one of 16 administrative regions in the Islamic State that spans Syria and Iraq.

ISIS snipers have seen action in both Syria and Iraq where they have been responsible for the deaths of many Kurdish and Iraqi soldiers.

An ISIS sniper killed Iranian Revolutionary Guard Brigadier General Hamid Taqavi in December. Taqavi was one of a number of Iranian advisers training Shi’a militias in their fight against ISIS.

If this is starting to sound like the president spoke quite a bit about himself, that’s because he did. Somehow in the span of just 33 minutes, Obama referenced himself 118 times.

Howard Dean Says Sorry To Veterans But Not “Right-Wing Nut Jobs” Over His Comments On American Sniper…

Dean

Keep digging d-bag.

Via The Hill:

Howard Dean is saying sorry to military veterans for his comments about “American Sniper,” but says he’s not apologizing to the “right-wing nutjobs.”

Critics, including “Forrest Gump” actor Gary Sinise, blasted the former Democratic presidential candidate for remarks he made about the Clint Eastwood-directed film. […]

In a Friday appearance on Bill Maher’s HBO show, “Real Time,” Dean said, “There’s a lot of anger in this country and the people who go see this movie are people who are very angry.”

“American Sniper” stars Bradley Cooper as real-life Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the deadliest sniper in the country’s military history.

In an online message, Sinise called Dean’s remarks a “stupid blanket statement,” writing, “I will admit that perhaps somewhere among the masses of people who are going to see the film there may be a few that might have some anger or have been angry at some point in their lives, but, with all due respect, what the hell are you talking about?”
