G’day, Wheelizens!

Islam, ignorance, inbreeding and toxoplasmosis are a really bad combination.

Disrupting our infidel way of life is clearly a goal; I’m all in favor of punching back at least twice as hard.

Ramadan starts Friday; let’s give ’em an early sunrise. 👿

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

We got in late last night, later still by our internal chronometers. The flights were thankfully free of troubles or delays. At the airport I got a start on my work emails, so today won’t be as bad as it could be. I’ve already gone through about 175 skype messages. I’ll tackle my home email later today.

Teh Younger’s graduation went well. We got his dorm room/apartment cleaned out, but weren’t able to get him as moved into to his summer apartment as we would like. He’s sub-letting an apartment from some friends and taking care of their plants and reptiles, but they aren’t moving out for a few more days, so most of his stuff will remain in his car and he’ll sleep on a futon for a few nights.

Time to try to catch up on work.

Sheesh. A world I recognize less and less.

Ignore Hopkins, many say. Sometimes that seems the wisest course – for free speech, even recklessly divisive free speech, is a prerequisite in a free society. But some speech is so inflammatory and societally divisive that we enact laws to prevent it.

Public exhortations for an apparent “final solution” and urging “western men” to protect their families seem to fall into that category. Critics have reported Hopkins to the police, calling on them to investigate her for a possible criminal offence. Officers should do so.

Fully prosecute “hate speech”, but let’s not dare speak of the nexus of all of the actual hateful, murderous actions that have taken place and will continue to take place, lest those who hate us think poorly of us.

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’
‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.
‘I don’t much care where -‘ said Alice.
‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.
‘- so long as I get SOMEWHERE,’ Alice added as an explanation.
‘Oh, you’re sure to do that,’ said the Cat, ‘if you only walk long enough.”

Yes, clearly the wrong way to go about things. Jobs and hugs will do it:

If we simply become angry, as Katie Hopkins appears to, then we play into the terrorists’ hands. Violence, in deed and in word, begets violence. She should take note
