Should Breitbart have fired a reporter who blamed attacks on Muslims?


Breitbart has fired reporter Katie McHugh after she tweeted the following:

“There would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn’t live there. #LondonBridge,” Ms. McHugh wrote in a tweet still pinned to the top of her timeline.

Breitbart did not come out and say "Hey, we fired Katie for this tweet," but Katie maintains this is why she was let go.

McHugh herself confirmed she was out, tweeting, “Breitbart News fired me for telling the truth about Islam and Muslim immigration” McHugh’s comments prompted outrage from a number of her own colleagues. Breitbart employees who spoke to CNN Sunday characterized McHugh’s remarks as “appalling,” “terrible,” and “dumb.”

[McHugh, talking about herself in the third person, said] Breitbart News fired an editor for speaking frankly about Islam and Muslim immigration. If there were no Muslims in London, there would be no Muslim terror attacks, period.

Katie's statement, while blunt, is absolutely true. On the one hand, if there were no Muslims in the UK, 99% of terrorism would be eliminated. It's a fact.

What Breitbart probably found uncomfortable with this statement is that it seemed to imply that all Muslims were terrorists.

All Muslims are not terrorists.

However, a small percentage of Muslims definitely are terrorists, and an alarming percentage of Muslims sympathize with terrorists. Forgive me for repeating things you probably already know:

1) 40% of Muslims want Sharia law in the UK. Sharia is not terrorism per se but is a repressive rule that oppresses women and non-Muslims.

2) 25% of Muslims expressed sympathy for 7/7 terrorist bombers.

3) 27% of British Muslims do not support the deportation of Islamic extremists preaching violence and hate.

4) 25% of British Muslims disagree that a Muslim has an obligation to report terrorists to police.

5) 45% of British Muslims agree that clerics preaching violence against the West represent "mainstream Islam".

6) 1 in 4 young Muslims in Britain (and 1 in 5 overall) said they sympathize with those who fight for ISIS.

7) 2 in 3 Muslims in Britain would not report terror plots to police.

And these were just the individuals willing to admit it to pollsters. The real numbers of Islamist supporters are probably higher.

So the problem is not simply the undeniably deadly fraction of 1% who kill; it is also their larger support group, a substantial percentage of the Muslim population. For every terrorist attack you hear about, there are hundreds of less reported incidents of Muslims beating up people, of Muslims committing violent crimes. The Muslims have their own "no go" zones that police do not venture into, but Muslims do venture out of. That's why many Jewish people are fleeing the United Kingdom. Because they don't feel safe anymore.

In light of that, Katie's comments are entirely reasonable. As lower-case "l" liberal, enlightened people we cringe at the idea of painting a broad brush and labelling an entire people. I for one have encountered individual Muslims who are very nice people. But some significant portion of the Muslim population in England, as in other western countries, are part of the problem.

Breitbart probably feared that its British operations would be in jeopardy if Katie was not fired, that it would be banned like Michael Savage. If Katie had written a more nuanced message, writing what I have above, perhaps it would have been different (or perhaps not). But until more and more of us talk about the problem in the Muslim community, the problem will only get worse, and it's sad that Breitbart of all sources would kowtow to this sort of political correctness. It's little better than watching the Prime Minister of Great Britain talk about the need to better patrol Facebook pages and "confront extremism" without talking about the giant elephant in the room.

FAA frowns on pilots having more than one gender in five years


The FAA says that it will not automatically award pilot licenses to applicants who have had more than one gender in the past five years. That is, if they have had a "sex change operation" in the past five years, the FAA says they may have to wait before being given a piloting license. They can still apply for a piloting license if they have had a sex change operation or artificially grown breasts in the past five years, but in that case have to fill out a gender dysphoria mental illness form to provide more information. The form, to be filled out by a psychiatrist, asks whether the patient has "mental health concerns", has ever been in a mental hospital, and ever tried to kill himself--all good questions to ask about mentally ill people who want to have pilot licenses, wouldn't you agree?

Ancient Egyptians looked more like Eddie Fisher than Eddie Murphy


In liberal thinking it's very popular to rewrite history to make the Pharaohs black. I think it was all about the liberal ideal of building black self-esteem. There were no empires or castles or advanced civilizations in Sub-Saharan Africa, and liberals felt there was a gap to be filled. Liberal pop culture emulated this theme, to the point of unintentional parody, in Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time" video, where Jackson portrayed all the Egyptians as black and Eddie Murphy as their pharaoh.
