Great Jonathan Last essay on the base motive – power – of the petulant little fascists taking over American college campuses.

“Americans who believe our political and media structures are proof that everything is meaningless and nothing matters because civilizational doom is imminent have been vindicated once again. There was a horrible shooting in California, and the Republican frontrunner sat for an interview with Alex Jones, the ‘amazing’ 9/11 truther and gay frog evangelist, while a Democrat presidential candidate performed a freestyle rap: ‘Guns, guns, guns, I don’t like them guns.’”

Radical Muslim students made death threats while interrupting a lecture on blasphemy by a prominent human rights activist, it was claimed today. Maryam Namazie, who fled Iran’s repressive regime and now campaigns against Islamic extremism, was speaking at the Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society of Goldsmiths in London. However, the event on Monday night was disrupted by students from the university’s Islamic Society – which claimed that it would ‘violate their safe space’ because of Ms Namazie’s outspoken views…The Islamic Society spoke out in advance of the talk – titled ‘Apostasy, blasphemy and free expression in the age of ISIS’ – insisting Ms Namazie should not be allowed to speak because of her ‘bigoted views’.

Good Rick Wilson piece on why Trump’s 9/11 lies should be an insult to every American.


Less than a month after it was revealed that the UK is planning to drop feminism from the politics A-level, every 16-year-old in Sweden is being given a copy of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s call to arms, We Should All Be Feminists.

Trumpkins really are their own horrible little political party. They should seriously start their own and leave the rest of us alone.
