Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/16/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/16/2010Rep. Charlie Rangel (Plutocrat, NY) has been reported out of the House Ethics Committee as guilty of several major ethics violations, including those four rent-controlled Manhattan apartments that everyone has known about for years but didn’t much care about until the Democrat hold on the House was in jeopardy. Mr. Rangel’s future remains uncertain at this point.

In other news, a retailer in Britain pulled the plastic figurine of a pig from a toy farm set, concerned that it might offend the sensibilities of Muslims “and Jews”. The set retained a wallow, a sty, and a button which went “oink” when pressed — but no piggie. Customers were informed that they could order the missing pig from the store’s website at no extra charge.

Gurmail Singh, 63, was attacked for just a few pounds, some sweets, alcohol and cigarettes during a raid at his shop in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, in February.

Muawaz Khalid, 20, was told he must spend at least 21 years in prison by a judge at Bradford Crown Court. Nabeel Shafi, 18, who protested his innocence as he was led from the dock, was given a 20-year minimum term.

The religion of peace strikes and kills again.
Do you think Mr. Singh feels himself to be subdued?
How about his family?
How about Britain?
Are our Muslim youth the righteous judges of mankind? Are they God's avenging angels?
