Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
Like a swaggering conquering hero,
Rauf is building a mosque at Ground Zero
– Where some 3000 bodies
Were interred by jihadis –
And Obama just fiddles like Nero.
From the archive:
Kissed my loved one at the door.
No idea what lay in store.
In the tower
Not an hour.
Now my loved one is no more.
Last week’s limerick:
ME SHELL, CONT.
While the rest of us scrimp all the time,
She displays an indifference sublime:
Our First Lady, Michelle,
Does exceedingly well
As she travels the world on our dime.
At a White House celebration of Ramadan tonight in the company of representatives of several of the Nation’s most prominent Muslim Brotherhood front organizations, President Obama announced his strong support for one of their most immediate objectives: the construction of a mega-mosque and “cultural center” at Ground Zero. – Frank Gaffney
A mosque at Ground Zero would add insult to injury, but Obama is turning the other sheik.
The Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, an imposing black box of a building in the heart of Riga, tells the story of Latvia’s time inside the Soviet Union. The Soviet soldiers, glorified as heroes in Moscow, are portrayed as criminals and occupiers, no better than the Germans they defeated. But . . . Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has ordered the creation of a body with the Orwellian title of the Commission to Counteract the Falsification of History to the Detriment of Russian Interests. . . . Pressure to stop their much smaller neighbours telling recent history the way they see it has been building for some time. – The Independent
The Germans had to acknowledge and reject the crimes of their Nazi past; why shouldn’t the Russians be obliged to do the same with their longer and even more horrific history of mass murder and enslavement? Why should the Latvians and other East Europeans have to pretend that it never happened?
