So Trump's a racist and wrong about some countries he mentioned...and *y'all* here are cheering for massive immigration to America from Africa and the Middle East?

Well good luck with that:

http://www.abc.net.au/pm/content/2010/s3100693.htm
A Victorian Supreme Court jury has found three men guilty of plotting a shooting rampage at the Holsworthy Army Base in Sydney.

The jury found that the men planned the terrorist attack as payback for Australia's participation in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and for the jailing of other Muslim men for terror plots.

Saney Aweys, Wissam Fattal and Nayef El Sayed were found guilty of conspiring to prepare for, or plan, a terrorist attack.

On hearing the verdict, Fattal thanked the jury and told them that Islam was "the truest religion".


The court had heard that the men had plotted to enter the Holsworthy barracks with high-powered weapons and kill as many people as possible until they ran out of ammunition or were captured or killed.

The Prosecution had told the court that permission for the attack, a "fatwa", was sought in Somalia because the men's Australian religious leaders were opposed to violence.

Saney Aweys and Nayef El Sayed sought the fatwa by phoning clerics in Somalia.

It was 2010...and the sentences were 18 years each.

The latest lot, allegedly plotting to blow up a passenger jet with a sausage mincer bomb, haven't been tried yet.

Rita Panahi: The #MeToo sisterhood is on a witch hunt

That the modern feminist movement is populated by joyless, far-Left radicals who slander anyone who doesn’t conform to their distorted worldview is nothing new. What has changed is that the powerful #MeToo campaign is becoming another outlet for unrelenting misandry, victimhood glorification and a disturbing, puritanical approach to human interaction.

We've been posting on the "very old backup" since Sept. 26.

Have no interest in the missing posts, but would be nice to have full editing function restored on the profile page, e.g. avatar, caption, tagline, etc. 

If we are stuck with 2008, then could Silver let us know?

Less ugly than what he sees in the mirror or hears from the voices in his head.

"Whites, it must frankly be said, are not putting in a similar mass effort to reeducate themselves out of their racial ignorance. It is an aspect of their sense of superiority that the white people of America believe they have so little to learn.”

And a little more perspective, albeit in an opposite direction.

It is little overreaching claims like that that help to underscore both his personality issues and his disconnect from reality...

not to mention his racism.

......the NFL protests may be a harbinger of change. They elicited considerable resentment. There have been counterprotests. TV viewership has gone down. Ticket sales have dropped. What is remarkable about this response is that it may foretell a new fearlessness in white America—a new willingness in whites (and blacks outside the victim-focused identity) to say to blacks what they really think and feel, to judge blacks fairly by standards that are universal.

We blacks have lived in a bubble since the 1960s because whites have been deferential for fear of being seen as racist. The NFL protests reveal the fundamental obsolescence—for both blacks and whites—of a victim-focused approach to racial inequality. It causes whites to retreat into deference and blacks to become nothing more than victims. It makes engaging as human beings and as citizens impermissible, a betrayal of the sacred group identity. Black victimization is not much with us any more as a reality, but it remains all too powerful as a hegemony.

Black Protest Has Lost Its Power
Have whites finally found the courage to judge African-Americans fairly by universal standards?
