Now the Left is trying to kill us. And more is to come. A good piece from my friend Thomas Craughwell in the American Spectator on my being poisoned last week in Iceland: “Ecstasy on Ice — But Not the Good Kind,” by Thomas J. Craughwell, American Spectator, May 19, 2017: Somebody just tried to […]

The real story of my appearance at the University at Buffalo was how campus Left-fascists and Islamic supremacists screamed abuse at me for an hour and a half, such that I was able to say very little. The real story, in other words, is about how Left-fascists on campuses nationwide are increasingly authoritarian, unwilling to […]
“It is a hard to read a newspaper these days without encountering extreme rhetoric from liberals that can reasonably be construed by their followers as a call for violent action against conservatives.” Indeed. They can’t refute us, so that assassinate our character. If that doesn’t silence us utterly, then they will move to do so […]
“The social-justice crowd are moving toward the same point as the Charlie Hebdo killers, and for the same reason: They’re too stupid to argue.” Yes. Here is an excellent take on what happened to me in Iceland and its larger implications. “The Poisoning of Robert Spencer,” by Mark Steyn, May 18, 2017: For years now […]
“According to police, a man walked by a parked car in north Minneapolis about 5 p.m. Thursday and confronted the people inside after they threw food wrappers on the ground. They ignored him until he paused to get the car license number. The men then got out of the car and indicated they had guns…Inside, […]
“Form N-400 asks various questions, including whether the applicant supports the Constitution or if they’ve ever been members of the Communist or World War II-era German Nazi parties, which are included by law. It also asks if the immigrant is in any way associated with any terrorist organizations but doesn’t list specific groups’ names, such […]
Recently I was interviewed about the persecution by Catholic bishops of Catholic priests who enunciate unpopular truths about Islam. “Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14) “Islamic Expert: US Bishops Complicit in Muslim Persecution of Christians,” by Anita Carey, […]
The Eastern European nations that refuse to destroy their countries will be the only places of refuge and sanctuary for infidel refuseniks in the coming bloody wars. HUNGARY TAKES EU TO COURT OVER MIGRANT DEMANDS By Jacob Bojesson, Daily Caller, May 10, 2017: HUNGARY AND SLOVAKIA ADDRESSED THE EUROPEAN COURT OF JUSTICE WEDNESDAY IN A […]
As I have noted many times, and experienced firsthand in the last few weeks at the University at Buffalo, Truman State University, and Gettysburg College, colleges and universities today are not institutions of higher learning, but factories of hard-Left and pro-jihad indoctrination, propagandizing and brainwashing students into becoming ugly little fascist shock troops for twenty-first […]
Editor’s note: Hugh Fitzgerald first published this essay here at Jihad Watch in 2004. Now, in light of the landslide election of Emmanuel Macron as President, it is more germane than ever, and hence eminently worthy of republishing. The names of the politicians have changed; the overall situation is the same. Imagine that you are […]
Green should not have dropped out. His doing so only validates the Left’s claim that his statements are beyond the pale. But are they really? “Also in September, he said a stand needed to be taken against ‘the indoctrination of Islam’ in public schools.” Hysterical, paranoid Islamophobia, right? Wrong. Some headlines from the last few […]
Score one for free inquiry. Heartfelt thanks to the police and security personnel who were out in force last night as I spoke at Gettysburg College. They ensured that Left-fascists would not disrupt the event as they did Monday at the University at Buffalo. I made the case that the concept of Islamophobia was making […]
“We have certainly made it a lot harder for them to operate in this space.” Facebook and Twitter are ruthlessly clamping down on foes of jihad terror — referrals to Jihad Watch from Facebook and Twitter went down 90% on February 11 and have never rebounded — as well as upon jihadis. This is another […]
This special edition of The Glazov Gang presents the Tommy English Moment with Tommy English, the leader of Gays Against Shariah-UK. Tommy discussed Gays Against Shariah Rally in Manchester, announcing the march that will shed light on Islam’s teachings on homosexuality — and call out the Left and LGBT community on their silence and betrayal. […]
Last night I appeared at the University of Buffalo at the invitation of the courageous students of Young Americans for Freedom, who have to put up with this Left-fascist thuggery on a daily basis, while I left Buffalo this morning. I say I “appeared,” because to say “I spoke” would be exaggerating a bit. Rather, […]
