The "enlightened" who claim a firm grip on the steering wheel of Western civilization see the future through a lens in which man becomes ever more perfectible as outdated religious creeds fade away. And thus the irony.
In Australia, Muslim protesters clashed with police in demonstrations as violence spreads around the world.
At the U.S. embassy in Egypt, rioters stormed and took down the American flag before erecting an Islamist flag in its place.
While President Obama talks football with DJ Laz, the US Embassy in Cairo is under attack.
There’s evidently a fine line between a “hate crime” and a BLT. The Reuters headline screamed: “Bacon found at NY Muslim celebration probed as possible hate crime.” I was expecting the subtitle: “Cops bring lettuce & tomato, dispose of evidence,” but to no avail.

As an act of pure evil it was difficult to match. After dragging the 8-year-old by her hair across a schoolyard, the killer put a 9 mm pistol to the girl's head and pulled the trigger.
Head Sheriff of Los Angeles, Lee Baca has cultivated relationships with Muslims and has cemented close ties to CAIR and other Muslim political action groups. He claims that “diplomacy should be the primary mission of all Americans” and he assures Muslim groups that he understands that “when one religion is under threat, all religions are under threat.”
Islamists are a diverse lot. Some are what diplomats like to call “violent extremists.” They want to kill you.
