Tonight in Dennis Miller’s ‘Real Free Speech,’ he takes on defeatism about the war on the homefront. I can’t add anything to what Dennis says, so take it way, D-Man.
I just love these segments. I’m glad it’s become a regular on H&C. Oh, and I just love his take that we’ve not been brutal ENOUGH in Iraq. He’s no pacifict, and he’s no wuss. And he’s no defeatist.
Watch Dennis Miller’s rant here.
Yes, that’s right – a Pakistani Muslim immigrant named Jamal Miftah was kicked out of his local mosque. His offense? He wrote a letter to the editor of the Tulsa World Newspaper speaking out after the last release of a taped message by Zawahiri. He wrote as an appeal to Zawahiri and his “band of thugs” to stop the violence and asked him to turn himself into authorities.
Of course the Islamic Society there in Tulsa say that he was thrown out because of a physical confrontation, but that he was welcome back. Listening to his story, it doesn’t sound like he’s welcome to go back to me! Nor does he look like someone who could start a physical confrontation. Even the Imam of the mosque got into the fray with Miftah, and Miftah was told not to ever write anything again against Muslims or Islam. It must not have been a pleasant; in fact, he felt very threatened.
Watch him talk about the hypocricy here.
Wow! Is this ever some good-ol’ sparrin’ on Hannity & Colmes tonight. It’s sometimes boring when Sean’s gone, and Rich Lowry can also be somewhat less than assertive. But man, oh, man, somebody put some Red Bull in his coffee or something before the show!
Tonight one of the topics was the recent NYPD shooting of Sean Bell, and the protests that have been going on in the city against the NYPD. NYC Councilman Charles Barron was on, of course, to slam the cops in any way he can. Rich starts out asking him about the tens of thousands of murders that take place in NYC every year, and the proportion of which are black, and Rich wanted to know when Mr. Barron was going to start protesting THOSE crimes. Then all hell breaks loose.
Finally Alan breaks them up (which was very difficult to do), and Alan says something like ‘well, you know not all cops are bad,’ and Barron says he doesn’t know any cops! Golly gee whiz, if you’re going to sell them down the river wholesale, wouldn’t you find yourself a bit more credible if you knew at least some of them, and not just read the papers for the stories? Might be a good thing, as sometimes newspapers can be a bit inflammatory.
