New York Times Editorial Board: ‘The Concealed-Carry Fantasy’

Via avordvet

The idea that law-abiding concealed carry permit holders could potentially stop mass shooters is nothing more than a “myth,” the New York Times editorial board proclaimed on Monday.

Citing a study from the anti-gun Violence Policy Center, the editorial board claimed “at least 763” concealed carry permit holders “have been killed in 579 shootings that did not involve self-defense” since 2007.

Austrians Are Buying Guns

The flood of “refugees” into Austria is continuing without interruption. The Hungarian route has become less active, and traffic is now flowing at a rapid rate through Slovenia instead.

According to the following report from Czech Independent TV, Austrians — especially women — are responding to the presence of all these “New Austrians” by purchasing firearms at a record rate.

Many thanks to Xanthippa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Although the situation has remained very quiet, I have been informed the UDC has been given an ultimatum per Vanderbilt. Either they remove the name "CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL HALL" from the building on campus for Fifty Five Thousand Dollars or have it condemned. I sure hope the UDC legacy is not for sale. There is an attorney involved however I have no idea where this is going.  Who cares if they condemn the building, the name will remain. Let it be known that we will not accept blood money!

VIDEO=> MSNBC Crank: Be “Super” Careful About Saying “Hard Worker” Because It Demeans Slaves

Via sauced07

Give it a rest.

MSNC host Melissa Harris Perry warned her guests to be careful about saying “hard worker” because it demeans slaves.

Yes, she was serious.
“I feel you. But I just want to pause on one thing. Because I don’t disagree with you that I think Mr. Ryan is a great choice for this role. But I want us to be super careful when we use the language “hard worker” because I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall. Because it is a reminder of what hard work looks like.”

….too many trees in holiday park!

This ‘Invasion of Europe’ news is from Fjordman today on twitter.

From The Local:

Two buses packed with refugees arrived at the park in Lima in west Sweden on Sunday, but around 30 passengers initially refused to disembark.

Charlotte Jacobsson, a press spokesperson for Sweden’s Migration Board (Migrationsverket) confirmed to The Local that a number of the asylum seekers had felt uncomfortable being surrounded by so much forest.

“Yes, that is the information we had from some people,” she said.

Mississippi Flag

University of Mississippi police officers removed the state flag from campus today in a morning ceremony after a campus-wide push from students, faculty and administrators called for the flag's removal due to its Confederate ties.

Ole Miss joins other Mississippi public universities, including Alcorn State, Jackson State and Mississippi Valley State, in choosing not to fly the state flag, which features a Confederate emblem in one corner.

Discussions to change Mississippi's flag have been ongoing for years and were revived last summer.
While many state legislators have spoken out in support of developing a new state flag without Confederate imagery, others, including Gov. Phil Bryant have indicated changing it is not a current priority.

Gun-waving ‘Kill Cops and White People’ Activist Thought a Black Woman Judge Would Let Her Off Easy – WRONG!

 Gun-waving ‘Kill Cops and White People’ Activist Thought a Black Woman Judge Would Let Her Off Easy – WRONG!

A Georgia #BlackLivesMatter activist, who posted video threats against police, didn’t get any special treatment just because her judge was also a black woman.

Clayton County Magistrate Judge Wanda Dallas didn’t buy Latausha Nedd‘s  argument that she was just exercising her First Amendment rights by waving a gun and a machete at the camera in her videos, and calling for “blacks to take police officer’s guns, take over a police station, and kill white people.”

Dallas slapped Nedd with $70,000 bail, and declared that charges of criminal solicitation and terroristic threats should go forward.

Atlanta’s WSB-TV showed parts of the nearly 14 minutes of video that prosecutors played in court.

The Retreat of the State

Via avordvet

The decline of the West is not going to be announced by those in charge, not least because the state garners loyalty and obedience from its citizens by way of its ability to protect them and provide them with various rights and services, or at least having the appearance of being able to do so.

If the state cannot do this, or cannot maintain the facade, citizens will begin to question the benefit of remaining loyal and obedient to an already distrusted political class. Many grumble about unjust laws, stifling political correctness, globalism and corrupt officials but they still largely obey the law and pay taxes. They are outwardly loyal despite being in a state of inner revolt. Martyrs like Kim Davis who risk imprisonment and injury are still few.
