“In California, the Governor just signed legislation that decriminalizes the knowing transmission of HIV. So if you happen to go to California and need a blood donation, because the law applies to blood donations as well, you just might go home with HIV. But it is OK because the left has decided HIV and AIDS need to be de-stigmatized.” – Erick Erickson, “A cultural cold war gets warmer” – Real Clear Politics, Oct. 13th, 2017.

“Grooming gangs across the country are repeating the horrific abuse exposed in Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford and most recently Newcastle, victims and investigators have warned… There are mounting calls for nationwide action to combat sexual exploitation, with authorities accused of playing catch-up after ignoring victims ‘for decades and decades’… The proportion of white British victims of sexual exploitation prompted intense national debate in August, where the former director of public prosecution Lord McDonald called grooming a ‘profoundly racist crime’.” – Lizzie Dearden, “Grooming gangs are abusing girls across the country, victims and investigators warn” – Independent, Oct. 8th, 2017.

“They don’t want a city that is so inclusive of everyone and it is absolutely incumbent on us to hold on to the city we are proud of to make sure that we vote… We know they are using a lot of technology to get people who don’t believe in diversity to get people who might be racists or haters out to vote… Get your neighbours and your family and your friends and your co-workers, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, Pakistani and non-Pakistani, alike out to vote…” – Incumbent Calgary mayoralty candidate Naheed Nenshi, quoted by Eva Ferguson in “Nenshi warns voters about ‘racists, haters’ trying to influence election online” – Calgary Herald, Oct. 9th, 2017.

“The Hungarians believe that EU officials – who have met with Soros at the highest level – have adopted the so-called ‘Soros Plan’ for mass immigration into Europe more or less wholesale, including recommendations to accept an influx of some one million migrants per year, and to redistribute them throughout the bloc through a mandatory quota scheme imposed by Qualified Majority Vote.” – Jack Montgomery, “Budapest and Warsaw under attack because ‘Hungary and Poland are standing in the way of George Soros’” – Breitbart, Oct. 1st, 2017.
(This post will be kept more-or-less “on top of” my other posts, and I invite you to check in once in a while…)
Since I posted “Crossroads!” on July 4th of this year (1), I am well on the way to changing my routine and switching from working on my blog, to preparing to spend several hours a day working on my memoirs.
I find that I still want to be well-informed, and I spend the first hour or two each day keeping up with incoming emails and other chores. I am not assembling anything new for posting other than interesting quotations I find, and these are fully credited so you can easily find the original article and read it in full if you wish. Beyond that, I want to concentrate on settling into writing, although any news issue that comes up that I consider to be worth an “original” post in its own right will receive prompt attention. We’ll see how that goes…

“Many (Muslim) women like the idea of being supported by a husband and not having to find an outside job. Nowadays, a large number of young women do not even finish their studies, but instead stay home to wait for their ‘prince charming’ to get married. That they would apparently prefer to be their husband’s ‘slave’ and ‘concubine’ to working to support themselves is probably often the main reason they reject Western values such as feminism and gender equality.” – Maryam Assaf, “Islam and feminism” – Gatestone Institute, Oct. 2nd, 2017.

“The issue I have with modern feminist theory is the idea that culture, not biology, plays by far the most important role in shaping behavior. Not only do feminists assail the idea of ‘traditional’ gender roles, they are working towards making it illegal to even notice fundamental biological realities… The theory that gender is completely voluntary and has nothing to do with hormones or body parts is having effects in the real world.” – R. Houck, “Gender bender: Feminist ideology goes off the deep end” – The Occidental Observer, August 30th, 2017.
I gave up after three, but at least this was acknowledged as a terrorist attack…
“In the coming days, political leadership will be key for uniting citizens, while setting a tone of defiant resilience… Let us join vigils, pray together and offer compassionate solidarity with the victims. We are stronger together. And let us remain vigilant against those who exploit this attack to spread hatred against Muslims.” – Sheema Khan, “After Edmonton attack, vigilance and defiance” – Globe & Mail, Oct. 1st, 2017.
