WHEN I heard that someone had deliberately drove a car into pedestrians at Ohio State University today, before getting out and attacking people with a large knife, I had the same thought as everyone else: “A Mormon?”
It turns out we were wrong. Hang onto your hats, but it seems that the perp is a Somali. Say it ain’t so!
An 18-year-old Somali man was behind an attack involving a car and butcher knife on the campus of Ohio State University Monday that left nine injured, law enforcement sources told Fox News.
After the suspect plowed his vehicle into the crowd, officials said he got out of the vehicle and began attacking people with a butcher knife before he was shot and killed by a campus police officer.
Crooked Hillary thinks American society needs 650,000 more enrichers like this. Turns out that millions of racist ‘Muricans might just have done the right thing three weeks ago.
CUBAN experts have been in full cry since Castro went to the great gulag in the sky, and we all love an expert. One of their pitches is for the famed Cuban health and education systems. Yeah, and Benito got the trains to run on time. In truth Cuban hospitals are slums where, thanks to socialism, you’ll hardly find a bottle of aspirin. As for education, which a BBC pundit lauded this morning as “at least as good as anything in America”, where are the great Cuban advances in science and the humanities? Exactly.
But what intrigues me about Castro fans is their retort, when you point out how poor Cuba is, that “the US has embargoed Cuba for decades”. Well hang on, socialists also deny the importance of international trade in creating wealth, and insist that we’ll be richer if we make everything at home.
So what is it, socialists? Since Cuba had the opportunity and motive to make everything at home, why is it dirt poor? If your theories are correct the embargo ought to have spurred Cuba to wealth. These Leftists aren’t just making it up again, are they?
THIS is autumn international time, when the Southern Hemisphere’s national rugby teams come to play the European national sides. So yesterday, after seeing England beat Argentina at Twickenham, I watched Wales beat Seff Efrica by 27 points to 13 in Cardiff.
That’s the Springbok’s eighth loss this year, a record. It includes a record defeat by New Zealand a few months ago, a thumping defeat by England a fortnight ago and a humiliating loss to Italy last week. The head coach, Allister Coetzee, is widely expected to get the sack when they go home. But sacking a man who was appointed just this year is pointless, and I don’t think that South Africa’s dire year is his fault.
The fault lies with … government. The Springboks, and other SA national teams in other sports, have been ordered by the SA government to pick teams based on quotas. By the time of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, 50 per cent of the Springboks squad must be black. There’s no reason for a quota, there’s no reason why half of the squad must be a particular race, but politics is immune to reason.
This year has seen the first moves to realising the quota. Test quality players have been dropped to make way for mediocre players, who are selected only because they’re black. It’s resulted in a flood of South Africans coming to play rugby in Europe. It disqualifies them from national consideration, because SA picks only players playing in SA. But they won’t be picked anyway now, and they can earn more in Europe. So the domestic game has been hugely weakened, provincial teams are getting thumped by Aussie and Kiwi competitors and crowds are dwindling.
Well done, Pretoria.
South Africa is one of the great rugby powerhouses. It’s produced some of the great teams and great players. They’re so bad now they’re irrelevant. I’d have thought that I’d enjoy seeing the Boks getting hammered. Thanks to government, they’re now second rate, going backwards at speed and getting hammered every week. I’m not enjoying it though. It’s just a sad sight. An entire culture has been trashed and a tradition destroyed, by spiteful politicians and bureaucrats.
I see Hillary Clinton has made a temporary comeback – evidently she has not experienced enough loss.
“Hillary Clinton’s campaign will participate in vote recounts of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan if they take place, drawing a rebuke from Donald Trump’s team that the Democrat is being a “sore loser” and part of a “ridiculous” effort.”
One of the other ‘strange coincidences” is that Green Party candidate Jill Stein, she who has triggered these recounts …has managed to raise more cash to demand these through her..coughs…crowdfunding…than in her entire presidential election campaign. Gosh..isn’t that a surprise? 🙂
Just a word to say that I am Miami bound on Monday and won’t be in a position to blog here. For those who are interested you can still follow me on Twitter and Gab. I hope you all behave yourselves in my absence. Santa’s visit is imminent and he does check to see who has been good and who has been bad 🙂
FROM the first BBC Newsroom ululations this morning, we’ve been treated to global tributes to Fidel Castro. From Ken Livingstone (“a beacon”) up, to the BBC telling us that thanks to Castro, Cuba has the finest ballet schools anywhere, the sluts have kissing his dead communist arse.
So murdering and imprisoning those who disagree with you, or homosexuals and others with whose lives you disagree, is fine, so long as you’re Left Wing.
Fidel Castro, the fiery apostle of revolution who brought the Cold War to the Western Hemisphere in 1959 and then defied the United States for nearly half a century as Cuba’s maximum leader, bedeviling 11 American presidents and briefly pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war, died Friday. He was 90.
His death was announced by Cuban state television.
Let's be clear. "Free movement of people" - the cornerstone of the rancid EU - is about erasing Nation States through unlimited immigration
THE PRICE OF REWARDING TERRORISM
