Spade calling

“Islamophobia”: Edward Cline is in favor of it, and proud of it. He's trying to reclaim "phobia" for fear rather than loathing, but he's pretty much anti-religion anyway on general principles. It's not like he's making an exception for Islam. No, I'm not endorsing, but it's one of the more interesting things I've read recently.

Much better than the Democrats are agents of Satan (a.k.a. God has a Plan and I'm not Telling You About It) stuff that's floating around.

However, for an actual endorsement of political commentary that is both true, only a little unfair (to everyone!) and funny to boot, Chainik Hocker's analysis of the various rhetorical/political positions around the Danish Cartoon issues (and a few others!) is really worth reading.

Also, though nobody here's really surprised, Democracy doesn't always produce allies. Whose fault is that?
