Corrupting journalists

Quebec’s communications minister has come up with a conceited, self-important, cockeyed plan

By Ezra Levant – August 28, 2011

The government of Quebec wants to licence journalists.

Logo The Toronto SunChristine St-Pierre, its minister of culture and communications, thinks it just ain’t right there aren’t controls over people like me. Or, more to the point, people like you — mere citizens who aren’t “official.”

She thinks journalism should be left to the “professionals.”

But stop just for a moment.

What is St-Pierre’s title again? Minister of culture and communications? What kind of self-respecting, free society has a minister of communications?

Well, Quebec, for starters. In fact, this same minister of communications is in charge of enforcing the censorship laws in Quebec called Bill 101. Those are the sign laws that say it’s illegal to have public signs where English words are bigger than French words.

Pascal Brukner om sex i USA

Moral i USA er undertiden ret umoralsk. Jeg læste for en tid siden om en stolt og nybagt far, der havde taget et foto af det lille vidunder - kun et par timer gammel. Far gemte sit billede som privat på et af de steder, Microsoft tilbyder gratis til alle.

Kort efter blev kontoen slettet. Det fremgik af Microsofts begrundelse, at de vurderede det ikke-offentlige foto af et spædbarn på hospitalet, som var nul dage gammel, som værende børneporno:

Making War, Not Love: A French View On Sex In America – From Abu Ghraib To DSK

A prominent French intellectual’s j’accuse against a nation that accepts lies to justify war, while extra-marital sex is the equivalent of “national betrayal.” Pascal Bruckner on America’s obsession with sex, and what it says about a nation with a Puritan past — and uncertain future.

PARIS – A few years ago, we were on a family beach vacation in Florida. After a swim, my two-year-old daughter took off her bathing suit. Suddenly, the summer visitors began looking at us sideways. A few minutes later, a sheriff’s deputy equipped with an arsenal that could destroy an entire city, arrived and shouted at us that we had to get our daughter dressed again  if we didn’t want to get fined. My daughter, who thought it was a game, started to run. We ran after her…and the sheriff ran after us. Finally, we caught her and laughed out loud, but the big man in uniform didn’t. In Uncle Sam territory, to be naked on the beach is forbidden, even for babies.

Christopher Hitchens om Gaddafi og tidsskriftet, Private Eye

The Crimes of Col. Qaddafi

In the euphoria of the current celebrations, we must not lose sight of the former leader’s foul deeds.

By Christopher Hitchens – Aug. 25, 2011

Logo Slate

In George Orwell’s 1939 novel, Coming Up for Air, his narrator, George Bowling, broods on the special horrors of the new totalitarianism and notices “the colored shirts, the barbed wire, the rubber truncheons,” but also, less obviously perhaps, “the processions and the posters with enormous faces, and the crowds of a million people all cheering for the Leader till they deafen themselves into thinking that they really worship him, and all the time, underneath, they hate him so that they want to puke.”

It was particularly satisfying to see, in the filling of Green Square in Tripoli and the over-running of the vulgar Xanadu of Muammar Qaddafi’s so-called private “compound,” the use as real space of areas that had hitherto been reserved for that special kind of degradation and humiliation—the rally for The Leader. Picture four decades in which compulsory attendance at such a ritual—kissing your owner’s feet and shouting his praises in unison—was a major cultural activity. So addicted was Qaddafi to this sadomasochistic enactment that he, and his ghastly sons, continued it until the very last minutes. So, of course, did Saddam Hussein. So, as we speak, does Bashar Assad. In the nightmare state so cherished by such fantasy rulers, mere acquiescence or subjection is not enough. You must become a full participant in your own oppression, and find it in yourself to adore the collectivization of compulsory enthusiasm.

The Accidental Institution

This fall, Private Eye marks its 50th anniversary with an exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum—which suggests that a proudly scurrilous scandal rag has found a place in the British establishment. Score one for the dogged practitioners of muckraking and satire.

By Christopher Hitchens – September 2011

At whose expense comes the mild irony when, this fall, the cheaply produced scandal sheet Private Eye will have an exhibition of its cartoons and pictorial covers at the Victoria and Albert Museum, a building consecrated to taste and restraint? Perhaps the show’s modest title furnishes a clue: “ Private Eye: The First 50 Years.” Keep in mind that, a half-century ago, the British establishment was almost as near in time to its Victorian forebears as we are to the half-forgotten names—like Harold Macmillan (who even in his own day was described as an Edwardian)—who were so pitilessly lampooned in Private Eye’ s first issues.

Andrew McCarthy om det hedengangne Europa

Tabte horisonter:

Losing Malmo

And Brussels, and Rome, and Amsterdam . . .

Andrew C. McCarthy – August 27, 2011

Logo National Review Online WeekendDo you remember the jihadist terror campaign that ravaged Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city? Do you recall the bombings, the suicide-hijackings, and the random assassinations that finally coerced the city to surrender to Islamization?

No? Funny, I don’t remember them either. Yet there is no question that Malmo has surrendered. Large enclaves of the city, like similar enclaves throughout Western Europe, have earned the dread label “no-go zone.” They are unsafe for non-Muslims, particularly women who do not conform to Islamist conventions of dress and social interaction. They are especially perilous for police, firefighters, and emergency-medical technicians.

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
