HOT5 Daily 8/29/2010

1. "The Left's Unlikely Alliance with Islam" Why is Islam the left's favorite religion?

Representative Sample: the left has shown that it is perfectly willing to deride those who question the practices of Islam and Sharia law as "Islamophobes" while ignoring obvious intolerance from the practitioners of Islam. The fact that the critics of Islam get censored and threatened with death for speaking out doesn't seem to bother the left's interpretation of the First Amendment in the way that a death threat from a Catholic to atheist critics would.

2. "Bad Faith at Ground Zero" You can't have too much Pat Condell. 

Representative Sample: It's a video.

3. "Why can't Barack Obama tell the world about American tolerance?" Maybe if he could put it in the form of an apology.  

Representative Sample: Throughout Obama's entire adult life his whole raison de etre has been "us" vs. "them", with "them" being some powerful, nebulous, nefarious group motivated solely by prejudice working to deny "us" what we deserve. Hell, he even thought his own white granny just couldn't help herself but be a typical black-hating Klansman at heart. Does anyone believe he doesn't look at any situation involving an ethnic minority on one side and 70% of Americans on the other without seeing it through a prism of bigotry?

4. "It is safer in Baghdad than Caracas" Just how bad things have gotten under Chavez. 

Representative Sample: That socialist paradise created by Hugo Chavez has a new failure to add to its long list of failures – the failure of the government to provide the population with protection and security. Venezuela has become the murder capital of the world.

5. "Progressives Against Progress" Links a good article about environmentalism.

Representative Sample: Neither the failure of the environmental apocalypse to arrive nor the steady improvement in environmental conditions over the last 40 years has dampened the ardor of those eager to make hair shirts for others to wear. The call for political coercion as a path back to Ruskin’s and Mishan’s small-is-beautiful world is still with us. Radical environmentalists’ Tory disdain for democracy and for the habits of their inferiors remains undiminished.
