HOT5 Daily 12/19/2010

1. "Beware The New Guy" The threat from new converts.

Representative Sample: many of the more troublesome members of mosques are recent converts, who were radicalized by what they found on the Internet. These converts, as is the case in many religions, tend to be more energetic in the practice of their newly adopted faith. Many are also looking for a cause, something that will enable them to excel at anything, even at the risk of their own lives.

2. "Monarchist Liberals Fear the Mob" This nails the attitude and behavior of many on the left.

Representative Sample: Liberals have never been too fond of democracy. Even when they win elections, they prefer to treat those victories as "historic events" that are almost supernatural in nature, to avoid dwelling on the fact that what really happened was that the votes were counted, and they racked up more than the other side. Instead they condescendingly describe their victories as a sign that the country has reached a new level of ethical and intellectual awareness. Like a kindergarten teacher handing out gold stars, liberals pat the country on the head (at least the right parts of it) for making the right decision.

3. "Spain: Muslims sue teacher for speaking about ham in class" Hamophobic Muslims.

Representative Sample: According to ”El Diario de Cádiz“, the teacher “is accused of being the author of an alleged crime of abuse of workers, also alleging racist and xenophobic motives. “

4. "Israeli Outsourcing to Palestinians Booms" Economic ties probably far more important to peace than the so-called Peace Process.

Representative Sample: many Palestinians have also warmed to the idea. “I doubt you would find a company who says, ‘I am closed for business‘” to Israelis, said Ala Alaeddin, chairman of the Palestinian Information Technology Association.

5. "Your faith is a joke" Another classic from Pat Condell.

Representative Sample: It's a video.
