Movies as Political Propaganda: The Battle of Algiers, Part I

Tweet Movies are the most powerful tools of social and political propaganda the world has ever known. Consider: America wins wars only when Hollywood supports the conflict and puts itself squarely behind America’s war effort. During World War II, every studio in Hollywood backed the Allied effort against the Axis. Hollywood stars enlisted for active […]

Anti-Israel Tweets from IslamoNazi American Olympian

Tweet Ibtihaj Muhammed, an IslamoNazi,  is a member of the American Olympic fencing team. Of course, the left wing media think she’s absolutely fab-u-lous because the bag she wears on her head is just so gosh darned authentically multi-cult. I wonder if a female Hasidic Olympian would garner the same enthusiasm from the media. That […]

Palestinian Who Rescued Terror Victims Fired for Helping Jews; Jewish Leader Pledges Help

Tweet So-called Palestinian society is incurably pathological. The unidentified Arab and his wife gave aid to Jewish victims of terror. For this selfless act he has been fired from his job by his Arab bretheren and, no doubt, he and his family are now in mortal from the IslamoNazis of the so-called Palestinian territories.

Jewess With a Gun: Israeli Sharpshooter Tells All

Tweet “How long did it take you to qualify as a sharpshooter in the IDF?” “Not too long. I had natural way with rifle. I start out at 15 meters, then up to 30, 50, 100, 400 then all the way up to,” she hesitates, “classified meters.” Israeli soldiers are famously and appropriately tight-lipped regarding training and […]

The Mind of Barack Obama

Tweet David Hazony dives into the mind of the President and discovers a universe of lies and mendacity unparalleled in the history of American politics. I. Spin is the Opposite of Policy Whoever said that truth always wins out hasn’t spent much time in Washington. In this town of majestic monuments and post-adolescent ambition-addicts, where […]

How To Kill An IslamoNazi

Tweet The Obama administration has blamed the Orlando massacre on guns. Of course, the slaughter was engineered and committed by an IslamoNazi who repeatedly proclaimed his allegiance to ISIS. In 2009, during a trip to Israel, I ran into an old friend from Brooklyn who, armed with a Glock, saved scores of innocent Jews by […]

How Anti-Semitism Became Respectable Again

Tweet A fine article by David P. Goldman. The world was anti-Semitic in 1944, when Ben Hecht wrote A Guide for the Bedevilled. The majority of educated, civilized, and rational people believed that the Jews in some fashion had brought their own problems upon themselves. Hecht began fighting anti-Semitism after an unsettling exchange with a New […]

It’s IslamoNazi Ideology, Stupid

Tweet I heard about the Orando massacre in synagogue during the holiday of Shavuot. A friend said: “You watch, they’ll blame it on Israel.” I said: “They’ll blame it on guns.” Which is exactly what Obama did in his clueless statement about the slaughter. According to the religion of leftism, a gun walked into a […]
