The nation of Angola has reportedly banned the religion of Islam from the country and begun a demolition program of mosques and other Islamic sites. Islam has existed within the country for a number of years though the overwhelming majority of citizens are Christian. The Minister for Culture in Angola, Rosa Cruz, is quoted as having claimed Islam has yet to be “legalized.”

Viral media and cat picture experts BuzzFeed decided to once again enter the fray of actual journalism, it didn’t go well. Known for mostly writing and rewriting press releases and practicing access journalism (which is to say not-journalism) the listcle masters decided they would tell the “inside story” of Mint Press News.

It’s funny, in the least funny of ways, how a week that began in unspeakable tragedy unfolded into one filled with so much absurdity and journalistic malpractice, along with a truly bizarre string of unrelated events, that the actual news was often so frankly guffaw-inducing that The Onion would have a hard time topping it.

ust three days into 2013, Annika Rydh, a Swedish government official from the town of Almhult, issued a shrill call to both her colleagues and neighbors. Worried about the perceived growth of the Muslim population in her homeland and beyond, she urged the European Union “to act by having some kind of restriction, like the one-child policy in China.” If Muslims don’t like the proposed rule, she continued, they can go back where they came from.
Rydh’s appeal comes on the heels of a decade-long campaign to curtail Muslim immigration into western countries and reduce the number of babies born to Muslim families.

There are many alternative names you might consider. In honor of Sen. Linda Menard’s hallmark legislation from the 2009 session, you might consider the new name “Winged Marmot”
Other suggestions already put forward by Patriotic Americans have been “Freedom Fowl” and ‘Pilgrim Pullet.”

Nothing says intelligent and well-read like indicting a continent for not burning adherents of a religion at the stake when they “take root,” or as the rest of us say, “move someplace and have the audacity to not covert to exactly what their neighbors practice.” The Inquisition worked out GREAT. Why isn’t everybody doing that?

My question for tonight is: who would you cast off the airplane? Whom would you return to the jetway? Who doesn’t fly with Pilot You?

It is downright inappropriate to have an unapologetic terrorist sympathizer head our Committee on Homeland Security. So long as King maintains his terrorist support was justifiable but that of brown people is somehow different, he stands as a symbol of US hypocrisy on terrorism.

I saw Lee Baca speak last night at the “People’s Hearing on Defending Religious Freedom,” an event put on by the Southern California chapter of the ACLU. Baca will head to DC today for the hearings. Baca said that the only way to focus on the problem of extremist violence is to look at the statistics. “Since 9/11, 77 extremist efforts or attacks have been carried out by non-Muslim extremists in the United States,” said Baca. In addition, of the last 10 terror plots attempted by Muslims, seven of them have been thwarted by Muslims coming forward. “This is not a Muslim problem, it’s a people problem.”
