"Norway becomes first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation." That's great, except if I were an environmentalist, I wouldn't be proud to have Norway in my corner. Supposedly the least religious country in Europe, it's the poster boy for the old saying, "If you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything." The TV show Lilyhammer gets the bulk of its humor from the politically-correct bureaucratization that is Norway, a country so compromised morally that one its denizens feels guilty that a asylum seeker from Somalia who broke into his home and raped him got deported.

I always enjoy the colorful Catholic convert Gavin McInnes. This isn't one of his better pieces, but this paragraph is spot on: "I went to France right after the Bataclan attack and spoke to Parisians on the street. Virtually everyone I spoke to was totally oblivious to the threat of Islam and treated the whole thing like it was some random train crash. They've gone from tolerance and multiculturalism to self-hatred, and today they would literally rather die than offend anyone, especially Muslims."

But if that last Gavin McInnes article wasn't his greatest, the one he wrote a week later might be. It's a must-read, complete with links to the atrocities he references. Heroes are villains in this day and age and shooting an ape that's about to kill a child needs an explanation. If you rescue your wife from being raped, you will be arrested. If you set aside a day to memorialize the fallen soldiers who fought for our freedom, we're going to use it to make you feel guilty about slavery. Conversely, pedophiles deserve some respect. Archaic cultures that abuse women and gays enrich our lives. We get mentally ill drag queens in our bathrooms and Muslims are allowed to have 'women-only' time in the pool where they wear so much burqa it changes the color of the water."
