We’ve received several complaints from our students that they felt harassed, that they felt that their safety has come into question and that they felt personally attacked.

So said McGill University student society president Ivan Neilson in Montreal.  The problem?  That annoying student pro-life club.  Some students “claimed that Choose Life had disseminated false health information (the abortion/breast cancer (ABC) link that is denied by Health Canada) and exposed students to graphic images associated with abortion and fetal life.”  They lodged official complaints and the club has been suspended from campus.

In addition, last month some protesters (the same ones?) had drowned out a pro-life presentation entitled “Echoes of the Holocaust,” effectively shutting it down.  Said one student:

… as a human being, but also as a Jew, I would say that this kind of comparison is not acceptable.  By this ridiculous claim of trying to ‘humanize’ foetuses in order to further their cause, they are dehumanizing Jews.

Setting aside the actual abortion issue for a moment, look at what’s going on here.  Some students disagree with some other students.  Their solutions?  1) rudely disrupt their activities, and 2) get their club suspended.  The obvious intent here is to deny the pro-life group the right to speak their position.  Silence the opposition.

As for the protesters and their position on abortion?  I think it goes like this:

  • Don’t harrass me with the truth.
  • Don’t make me look at what I support.
  • Don’t … burst … my … bubble.

If you’re among them, and the following photos make you feel “harassed” “unsafe” and “personally attacked” – good.   It might just “humanize” you, along with the “foetuses,” and make you change your mind.

fetus 15 weeks

fetus 4.5 months

fetus 24 weeks

aborted fetus

aborted fetus 7 months

aborted fetus, head and arm detached

If you’ve made it this far, I’d encourage you to visit the Holocaust Memorial Wall.  There are no more graphic photos, but you can  adopt an aborted baby and give it the name and identity it was denied.

Another good site is Personhood USA, who seeks to establish legal “personhood” for pre-born children through peaceful activism, legislative efforts and ballot-access petition initiatives.

He also told colleagues at America’s top military hospital that non-Muslims were infidels condemned to hell who should be set on fire. The outburst came during an hour-long talk Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, gave on the Koran in front of dozens of other doctors at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre in Washington DC, where he worked for six years before arriving at Fort Hood in July.

Apparently we still have to get our news from out of the country.  Perhaps our government and media have been intimidated like the military doctors?

One Army doctor who knew him said a fear of appearing discriminatory against a Muslim soldier had stopped fellow officers from filing formal complaints.

I guess this is like the fear of being called a racist if you criticize Obama.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan worshipped at a mosque led by a radical imam said to be a “spiritual adviser” to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001

London Telegraph

Charles Allen, who the Telegraph says used to be an under-secretary at Homeland Security, reportedly said this imam supports al-Qaeda and targets US Muslims with “radical online lectures encouraging terrorist attacks from his new home in Yemen.”

Once again, MSM is ignoring a big story.  A search at the time of this writing finds zero American media outlets covering this story, one in England, and one in Canada – despite over 3,000 posts on the web. [HT to Michelle Malkin, which is where I found it.]

Whenever the silence on a big story is this deafening – like it was last spring when Baxter pharmaceuticals accidentally on-purpose spread flu vaccine contaminated with live bird flu virus around Europe  (here are some more posts about Baxter) – I am prone to speculate, “Why?”

Why … would MSM ignore a story this big, when they’ve been bombarding us with every sneeze associated with the Ft. Hood shooting?

Why … has no one from the government publicly renounced this iman and exposed his continued influence?

Why … doesn’t anyone in the media or the government acknowledge – out loud and in public – that violent jihadist rhetoric encourages the murder of anyone who won’t worship Allah?

Dear fellow Jews, what is so hard to understand about “we hate your guts, and will continue to kill and maim you”? Just last week, an “inter-faith” Rabbi, the guest speaker at an ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) conference was shocked … shocked to hear that one of the guest imams felt that Jews deserved the Holocaust because they turned their backs against Allah. What is so hard to understand about that?

Center for Faith and the Media

We are in danger of being subjugated to the ideology of Islamic world domination. The Jews are again in grave danger, and so are all Christians, along with the nations and societies that are democratic. The Ottoman Empire failed. Hitler’s “Final solution”and his Third Reich failed. The Islamic quest has no intention of failing a third time! “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people,” is not simply their slogan, but their strategy!

Greenville, NC – Today, Liberty Counsel is filing a federal lawsuit against the North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation, alleging that the state policy used by park officials to threaten citation of members of Grace Baptist Church violates their right to freedom of speech. Liberty Counsel represents Pastor Tony Rivers and other church members in the case against the state of North Carolina, Lewis Ledford, Director of the North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation, and several park officials.

While several members of Grace Baptist Church of Wilson gathered at Fort Macon State Park, playing group games, swimming in the ocean, and having a picnic, they shared about Jesus Christ with some park visitors before leaving. They also offered cold bottled water, consistent with Jesus’ statement in the book of Mark: “For whoever gives you a cup of water in my name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”

Park Ranger Crocker approached the group and explained that they were not allowed to communicate with others unless they first obtained a permit. Pastor Rivers was given a warning and told that if it continued, they would be cited for a park rule violation.

The park rule cited by the park ranger is Title 15A Section 12B.1105 of the North Carolina Administrative Code, which states: “A person shall not hold any meeting, or exhibitions, perform any ceremony, or make any speech, unless he has a permit.” There is a minimum $30 fee for any such permit. There are no written criteria or time limits for approving permit applications.

Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to Parks and Recreation Director Lewis Ledford, informing him of the unconstitutional treatment, asking that the policy be changed, and asking for an apology for Ranger Crocker’s actions. Director Ledford’s response defended the permit requirement. The rule does not define “meeting,” “exhibition,” “ceremony,” or “speech,” and requires that no matter how small the group, even if only one, the person desiring to speak must first obtain a permit.

Mathew D. Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, commented: “Permits for speech are prior restraints on speech, and in most cases such restraints are unconstitutional. It makes no sense to require a single individual to obtain a license to speak to another person in a public park. Prior permits stifle spontaneous speech. Of all places, public parks are places where speech should flourish and where it has historically received the highest protection. This prior permit policy is indefensible.”

  • What if an imposter from another country ran for the presidency and won?
  • What if the media blocked any news of his birthplace and citizenship?
  • What if the media censorship even blocked paid advertising that tried to expose it?
  • What if no one had the courage to challenge or verify it?
  • What if he was inaugurated illegally?
  • What if the military had to answer to a commander in chief who was illegitimate?
  • What if every law he signed was invalid?
  • What if every appointment he made was improper?
  • What if it all happened on our watch?

Janet Porter asks these questions on WorldNetDaily, and I think they are good questions, valid questions. But nobody seems to want to answer.

  • Obama staffers have refused to comment on the issue.
  • The Supreme Court thus far has refused to address the issue.
  • And now Porter says that national networks have refused to sell time for a 60-second commercial that does address the issue, including: CNBC, MSNBC, Headline News, CNN and Fox.

I’m not going to rant like a conspiracy nut because, frankly, it doesn’t do any good. But neither am I a national network, and my commercials are free. Here it is.
