With Rescue from the album Crocodiles, that was.

Another Great Champion of the Conservative Cause has died.


Anthony David "Tony" Blankley (January 21, 1948 – January 7, 2012) was born in London but emigrated with his parents to California. He had a brief stint as a child actor (!), and graduated from UCLA and Loyola Law School with a Juris Doctor. He spent 10 years as a prosecutor with the California Attorney General's office, until his conservative views brought him to the attention of Ronald Reagan. When the latter became President, Blankley served him as a political analyst and speechwriter. The high point of Blankley's career was as House Speaker Newt Gingrich's press secretary.

Apart from his lectures at a host of universities and his work for Edelman public relations in Washinton D.C. and The Heritage Foundation, Blankley was known as the author of two well-received books, The West's Last Chance: Will We Win the Clash of Civilizations? and American Grit: What It Will Take to Survive and Win in the 21st Century.

By far the best editorial I found on Mr Blankley is this one in The Washington Times, even though it focuses rather on the human being that he was and not on the Conservative:

Mr. Blankley’s dedication to journalism and the craft of writing was unmatched. His wife Lynda Davis told us he was working on his half-finished weekly column shortly before he died. This zeal was fueled by his love of country and deep concern for America’s direction. His two books, “The West’s Last Chance” and “American Grit,” both focused on our contemporary crisis but were tempered by hope and faith in the greatness of the United States and our people to turn it around. Mr. Blankley’s intelligence, experience and humanity made him a truly irreplaceable individual. While his family grieves for a missed husband and father, his extended family at The Washington Times is shedding tears of love and support for their fallen friend. Godspeed Tony Blankley. Requiescat in pace.

But I suspect that's only as it ought to be, right now.

Tony Blankley died in Washington, D.C. of stomach cancer on January 7, 2012 at Sibley Memorial Hospital, aged 63. A conservative intellectual of his stature will be sorely missed.

Rest in peace, Mr Blankley. God Bless.

Around Xmas, amidst a lot of stuff I typically have to take care of towards the end of the year, a short newsflash registered on my radar: "Texas gunman dressed as Santa Claus kills family, self".

Didn't pay too much attention to it. After all, the number of lunatics in this world is steadily increasing.

Then it was off to Poland.

When we got back, I stumbled upon this:


Via, but there are a lot of other blogs reporting on the TRUTH behind the Texas Xmas shootings.

In short, that truth is that the killer madman was a MUSLIM, that he could cope neither with his westernized family nor with the fact that his daughter was dating a dirty INFIDEL. So he did what he had to do - according to the muslims' Great Example, that old perverted paedophile scumbag named Mohammed. KILL HER. And with her, his family.

Now, how did Belgian whorenalists report on the story?

Same ol', same ol'. Just one example, Het Laatste Nieuws:


Not a fucking word about the REAL ISSUE, not even the to be carefully avoided 'M-word' or 'I-word': the evil politico-religious doctrine of islam at work. Now, that was the cream of Belgian reporters. Now over to the general populace. Accompanying this article were the reactions of eight people. I don't know what I find more appalling:



1.) A remark, Kortrijk.

'They should urgently add a manual to those handguns you know. 'First look in the barrel and pull the trigger, before you point the gun on other people.'

Offensive? Not done? Tell us. 27/12/11 16h28

2.) maja konecke

'As a result of overpopulation this will only happen more often, you ain't seen nothing yet!'

Offensive? Not done? Tell us. 26/12/11 18h40

3.) Kansarax Buda, Erps-Kwerps

'And still there's people who are pro the public selling of guns... To them I say: read last month's stories... Is that what we want??'

Offensive? Not done? Tell us. 26/12/11 18h25

4.) Honest meaning, Ghent

'What a world. All the time more violence and less punishment for this violence. A downward spiral.'

Offensive? Not done? Tell us. 26/12/11 16u10

5.) wim janssens, Westerlo

copycat. This happened a few years back in the Promised Land.

Offensive? Not done? Tell us. 26/12/11 11u14

6.) Marc Spandel, Sint-Niklaas

'Since it is in America, the 'gifts' could have been the loaded handguns themselves because the murders occurred right after opening the packages... Maybe this was about a deliberately created drama between rivals whereby the onlookers too had to give up their lives.'

Offensive? Not done? Tell us. 26/12/11 09u19

7.) jefke fonske, Tremelo

'You always have to pay attention with what you buy for someone (best beforehand establish the amount you will spend etc)'

Offensive? Not done? Tell us. 26/12/11 07u49

8. Gee Bee, Bonheiden

'thus the question is: who committed suicide?'

Offensive? Not done? Tell us.26/12/11 07u32

I honestly don't know what is more "Offensive". The almost criminal negligence and distortion of the truth by our MSM for politically correct reasons...

... or the mind-blowing stupidity, childishness and completely misplaced 'know-it-all' attitude of what you can be sure is a representative sample of the average Belgian population. Each and every of those utterly silly remarks is testimony to a horrifying lack of knowledge about the background of the killer, to a gruesome prejudice against Americans and their 2nd Amendment, and to a gullibility that would make informed readers despair.

One throws in a stupid 'joke'. Another one is convinced it's the Earth's overpopulation. No. 5 sees fit to throw in an antisemitic line for chrissake ('this happened a few years back in the Promised Land'). For yet another one it's once more proof of the stupidity to allow Americans to bear their own arms. There's a Sherlock Holmes with a conspiration theory. And to top it off a doofus with a completely irrelevant question.

.... While the simple and horrible truth is that once more, islam's teachings have been at work here.

The ignorance is breathtaking. A decent press that would report honestly and offer sincere in-depth analysis, would in time yield a smart and objective readership. The above sample is a good measure for what we have got instead. Idiots who are as clueless as they are mindless.
