  1. Race and religion are not the same thing!!!!

    /Sammy Davis, Jr

    1. There ya go. Since when is Islam a race?

  2. Our senators don’t look like that.

    1. But they are just as stupid.

      1. yeah, but it’d be easier to stomach coming from that. at least you could mute the TV and pretend.

  3. So that’s what happened to at least one of Rosy Palm’s five daughters

  4. I wish the palm I’d been having relations with all through HS was her.

    1. Crass.

      1. You foreigners must replace your l’s with r’s.

        1. Crass, class, they’re all the same thing to you Septics

          1. Are you saying his humor is infectious?

            1. Down under, when they dig septic tanks, if they dig too deep they reach us.

  5. Meh. She is a hardcore SJW. No amount of physical attractiveness can make up for that.

    1. She’s not even good looking. She looks like a frumpy bitch who doesn’t believe in free speech, and has the temerity to turn in others to the police for exercising it.

      1. There is a reason she looks like that.

        1. She was the kid in grade school who was quickest to “I’m telling!” Bank on it.

          1. Okay, I know you were all rebels as children, but being a rules follower doesn’t automatically make you a statist. It’s just as likely to come at libertarianism from the point of view that statist refuse to follow their own damn rules.
            90 percent of what drove me to libertarianism is that the logic of the various statist rules contradict each other.

            1. Yes- she was the girl that reminded the teacher they forgot to give homework before winter break.

    2. I beg to disagree.

  6. Did she report the missing alt-text?

  7. Really? Se needs to read the history of Islam and the fraud who started it.

    1. I thought you were using a new PC word – she without the patriarchal “he” in it.

      1. In Finnish, “se” is the word for inanimate objects; they only have one word “h?n” that covers both he and she. I’m told, however, that in colloquial Finnish, it’s not uncommon to use “se” in place of “h?n”.

        Finnish, not having gendered pronouns or grammatical gender, obviously had perfect gender equality.

      2. Good idea Swiss,I’ll do that from now on and blame it on you!

  8. I am too impatient to wait for AM links…..…..ay/384414/

    I am sitting at my brother’s house and the sister-in-law has the TV on. Something catches my eye, an ad for ‘My husband’s not gay’.

    Some swishy guy then says, while his wife looks on approvingly, “Other than my deep and abiding love for Broadway show tunes. And my attraction to males?those are the two things that are kind of gay about me.”

    My brother and I both begin laughing hysterically.

    What the hell is that? Does it come on right after ‘Ow! My Balls!’? Is that what TV has become? Goddammit. Everytime I see the damn thing on it reminds me why I don’t watch it.

    1. It’s sexual Paleo, apparently:

      “I love doughnuts,” Jeff explained. “I would eat doughnuts three times a day, but I desire to be able to fit in my pants in the morning, too.

      “So you could say I am oriented toward doughnuts, and if I was being true to myself, I would eat doughnuts a lot more than I eat doughnuts … [but] am I denying myself because I don’t eat doughnuts as much as I might like to eat doughnuts? I’m not. In fact, I desire to live a healthy lifestyle, so I don’t eat a lot of doughnuts.”

      1. It is incredible to me how people rationalize that the world is what they wish it was.

        Being gay is not the same as liking donuts. It is about who he fundamentally is as a person which is something neither he nor his wife wants to face.

        A deep and abiding love for Broadway show tunes for fuck’s sake.

        The guys are gay. I don’t know what it says about the wives who are attracted to them. I don’t think I want to know.

        1. I like musicals. No homo. Dudes are gross.

          1. Just because you’re gross doesn’t mean I’m gross.

            1. Of course it doesn’t mean that. You are still gross though.

        2. There are life long bachelors who never get in a relationship. There are people who die virgins. People grow old and unattractive. Not being in a relationship with someone you are attracted to is not the end of the world. I know its a nice excuse to win over the feels crowd, but the only reason being homosexual should be legal is because its none of our damn business who you sleep with.

  9. Relevant. I think. Regardless, always a good time for the Chef:

  10. Would Do

    That thin-lipped not-frown is about 2 millimeters short of an inviting look. Me thinks she might be more accommodating on other subjects


    1. You can have her.

      They’re all sisters in the dark. And the price for doing her would be to listen to her idiotic SJW prattle all night until you bedded her. And more of the same in the morning. And, if you didn’t call her, then you’ve got all the crap in the world that she’d be laying at your doorstep.

      1. Not to mention the rape accusations the morning after.

        1. Yeah, that was what I was suggesting with the “all the crap in the world” comment.

    2. Would Not Do

  11. Strictly, it isn’t clear to me that he said anything derogatory about Islam. Hell, he even called it “the religion of peace”. I’d find in his favor.

    1. It’s certainly not as bad as his thoughts on Judaism:

      Bj?rn S?der previously came under fire from Sweden’s Jewish community in December when he told Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter that Jews could not be considered Swedish unless they abandoned their religious identity.

      1. Sounds like he’s already reaching out to Sweden’s Muslim community.

  12. While S?der’s initial comment read “the religion of peace shows its face”, Dagens Nyheter said he then edited the post to add a question mark at the end and later deleted it.

    What if *everyone* utilized the Judge’s rhetorical technique?

  13. How come more Europeans don’t find thought crime creepy? Do they really believe that censorship is the only thing keeping them from becoming the 4th reich?

    1. I think it is part of what is making them the 4th reich.

    2. ^ THIS.

      Unfortunately, Americans are right along with them.

      More accurately, though, it’s the Americans who have led in state censure of politically incorrect thought. When done effectively, the brainwashed do not know that they are brainwashed.

  14. “It’s not legal to offend people based on their race, and I think this should be treated as racial agitation,” she told the paper.

    It’s a prog./sjw wet dream.

  15. She seems fun. I like her.

  16. One thing the euro’s don’t get is when you ban words you give them power they would not have other wise. Making NAZI’s and these Islamic asses the butt of jokes takes away that power and fear. I say Hitler on Ice for everyone.

  17. Is it too late to point to this:…..-in-sweden

  18. I agree that Miguel `s st0rry is flabbergasting, last saturday I got a new Lotus Esprit from earning $8938 this past 4 weeks and would you believe, ten/k last-month . without a doubt it is the most comfortable work I’ve had . I began this 4 months ago and pretty much straight away was bringin in minimum $86… per-hr . Visit Website ~~~~~~~~

  19. Sweden has already had a terror attack of their own. I wonder if their king called it “workplace violence” the way Obama did.

    Some people will keep their heads in the sand until they drown.
