Critical of populist piece in American Thinker blog

I am a regular reader of the conservative blog, American Thinker (AT). But yesterday I read a contribution on the increased security for air travel that concerned me.
The piece criticise security measures as "un-American" but offered no "American" solutions that would address the security problem.

The TSA restricts. It dehumanizes. It depresses. It invades. It costs. It fails in its stated mission as it creates jobs for the unemployable. It is government on display for all to see. It is what our health care will become if we keep silent.

It's un-American. And it's not America. Not yet. But if we cannot defeat ObamaCare and the TSA's "grope and change," we won't recognize America in the near future. This is why it is such a defining and critical issue.

I think that this kind of populist criticism is lazy and opportunistic and is better categorized as propaganda.

Why Air Security is the Issue

Interestingly AT block my comment pointing this out. So much for standing for freedom of speech.

Multi-Culturalism leading to Parallel Societies

The real issue is that the integration process is actually slowed as the level of un-integrated immigrant increases.
The inflow has to be matched by the outflow (the integration capacity) to have a sustainable immigration policy.

The West in its ideologically enforced multiculturalism phase has had and is having unsustainable immigration levels well exceeding any host societies capacity to integrate. To make matter worst there is one more effect and the left-wing fascist greenies love using the notion: the tipping point. The capacity to integration not only slows as the pool of un-integrated immigrants and their descendants increases, but it also reaches a tipping point where long terms parallel societies are formed out of these ghettos that out friend above romanticises about. It is this development of parallel societies open to political guidance for foreign colonial powers (eg Erdogan or Turkish diplomats in Vienna) that we are seeing today.

In the left-wing world...

In the left-wing world there is no racism against white peoples - or western people - especially Christians ones.
It just is impossible and does not compute. These peoples are the only ones that have and can carry collective guilt and they must be culturally and racially diluted to better the world - a normal, non-indoctrinated person, and we are all in part infected, would say that such a view is racists, but in the left-wing world you must be a bigot for thinking this- and further steps of 'declassification' must be sought against you.

In the left-wing world Islam is free of this guilt and sin. Any acts of Islamic terrorism are acts of pure virtuous self defence.
No act of Islamic terrorism can ever match the guilt that western people have. Indeed Western people have brought it onto themselves when they are targets of such terrorism.

In the left-wing world, left-wing terrorism and left-wing fascistic regimes (read socialist/communist regimes) are free of guilt for the same reason.

PC and MC are fascistic mechanism of an ideology,of an ism; sense, logic, reason does not come into it. You are either with the reigning political ideology or you are THE ENEMY - now where have your heard that language used recently (hint: American politics).

"If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We're gonna punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,' if they don't see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it's gonna be harder and that's why I think it's so important that people focus on voting on November 2."

Necla Keleks: Aus Muslimen müssen freie Bürger werden

Necla Kelek, sociologist and feminist of Turkish descend, received the Freedom Prize of the Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung.

At the award night she gave a speech addressing the issue of how Muslims have responsibility, that goes hand in hand with the rights as equal citizens, to defend the freedom.

The Jury gave the following reason for awarding the Prize to Keleke:

Necla Kelek has engaged in the integration debate (in Germany) with strong personal commitment to openness, balance and honesty that is not without personal risks. Her commitment reflects a clear and principled stand in the defence of the value of freedom. (

Her speech is in part reproduced in FAZ.

NOTE: if there is a request via comments, I will translate this article.

Die Liebe“, sagte ein inzwischen vergessener Dichter des Vormärz, „ist das Höchste im Leben, aber höher als das Leben steht die Freiheit.“ Lassen Sie uns also über Freiheit sprechen, denn ich habe den Eindruck, dass wir diesen Begriff von der Beliebigkeit und der populistischen Vereinnahmung befreien müssen. Lassen Sie mich zuerst etwas über die Freiheit der Frauen sagen.

What Ludwig von Mises has to say about Quantitative Easing

The only significant thing for us, however, since it explains the
political role of the inflationist procedure, is yet another insight.
We have seen that if a government is not in a position to negotiate
loans and does not dare levy additional taxation for fear that the
financial and general economic effects will be revealed too clearly
too soon, so that it will lose support for its program, it always considers
it necessary to undertake inflationary measures. Thus
inflation becomes one of the most important psychological aids to
an economic policy which tries to camouflage its effects. In this
sense, it may be described as a tool of antidemocratic policy. By
deceiving public opinion, it permits a system of government to
continue which would have no hope of receiving the approval of
the people if conditions were frankly explained to them.

Left-wing facism alive and well in Australia

I have always argued that Australia is really an apartheid county where there are two laws depending if you are indigenous or non-indigenous.

The problem with this left-wing racism is that: when are you indigenous enough?
A question the NAZIs would feel comfortable posing but so are le left-wing fascists of Australia.

Here is a practical example:
