Tweet Obama’s Cairo speech first tipped me off to the fact that he’s probably a misogynist. He may have a couple of powerful women upon whom he relies (Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama), but his instinct is to avoid women and hide them away. The Cairo speech got my antenna up because I thought it [...]

Tweet Would anyone care to explain to Mr. Bookworm the difference between an extremist sect breaking its country’s laws by discriminating against women, and a country that has as an integral part of its law and culture murderous attacks on women, “witches,” children and gays? He professes to be bewildered.
Tweet L’affaire DSK is all the rage in France. On my recent visit to France, you might say I was somewhat surprised that nobody asked me about the U.S. economy, the Euro’s impending collapse or Obama. Rather, the first question out of their mouths was “what do Americans think about the DSK affair?”. They were, [...]
Tweet Back in September 2009, I posted about Obama’s obsession with getting women into burqas which is, to my mind, a very misogynistic approach to women. I’m therefore entirely unsurprised to learn that those women who have worked in the White House claim that it’s a hostile environment to women, and that this hostility comes [...]
Tweet From whence does the viciousness in the Leftwing soul emanate? I know that most if not all of us in the Bookworm circle have seen this horrific video below. I post it because we need to see this again and again. We need to look into their eyes to recognize what this is. I [...]
Tweet I meant to post this yesterday, but time got away from me: many, many, many congratulations to the Marines and their Afghan allies for the Marjah victory. I never doubted that they would win, but I certainly understood that each Marine and Afghan soldier faced the risk that he would make the ultimate sacrifice [...]
Tweet One of the defining features of Islam is its obsession with sex. Every rule regarding women is based upon a driving need to control their sexuality. They are married off as children, sequestered, dressed in clothes that rob them of any hint of femininity, deprived of any opportunities to function outside the reproductive sphere, [...]
Tweet The Emperor of Japan is not a totalitarian dictator, thank goodness. Indeed, he seems like a very sweet little man. But what in heaven’s name is up with our president going around the world bowing? We’re Americans! We show respect, but we don’t bow. And there’s something really weird, too, about the most arrogant [...]
Tweet With the trigger being Obama’s obsession with niqabs and hijabs, I did a lengthy post about my belief that Obama fundamentally does not like women. He depends on strong women (his wife, Valerie Jarrett), but he doesn’t like them. In fact, I’m willing to bet that his dependence on them only increases that dislike. [...]
Tweet Didn’t Obama bow to the king? A Saudi court on Saturday convicted a female journalist for her involvement in a TV show, in which a Saudi man publicly talked about sex, and sentenced her to 60 lashes. Rozanna al-Yami is believed to be the first Saudi woman journalist to be given such a punishment. [...]
Tweet One thing I have to give credit to Barack Obama for being is a complete pragmatist, even if that pragmatism operates to the exclusion of moral decency. Witness his decision to jettison Israel entirely (something Elliott Abrams explains carefully here) in order to placate the Muslim world. Many think that Obama’s affinity for the [...]
Tweet Movie review one: The movie is a viscerally exciting, adrenaline-soaked tour de force of suspense and surprise, full of explosions and hectic scenes of combat, but it blows a hole in the condescending assumption that such effects are just empty spectacle or mindless noise. [snip] Ms. Bigelow, practicing a kind of hyperbolic realism, distills [...]
Tweet A thirteen year old (or, maybe, a 23 year old) was stoned to death for adultery after 3 men raped her. Showing their humanity, Somali authorities had nurses on hand to check on the girl. When the nurses exhumed her from the hole they’d placed her in for the stoning, and reported that she [...]
Tweet Honest to God, I really do wonder sometimes if the garden-variety fusion betwen Islamic and Arabic culture is salvageable: A teenage Iraqi girl who fell in love with a British soldier when he was in Basra was murdered by her father in an “honour killing”, it was revealed today. Rand Abdel-Qader, 17, was suffocated [...]
