“The boys plead not guilty and no action has yet been brought in the cases. The girls had to perform oral sex and others were raped. The youngest of the girls were only 13-years-old.

“‘There was no rape. If you’re with a girl at her home, it’s not rape like if you grab a girl outdoors and force her down. She lied and the charges are exaggerated,’ a father of one of the boys says.”

Thank you, sir! May I have more “cultural enrichment,” please…?

And these are the people with whom the secular Left – supposedly the champions of “women’s rights” – are making common cause. And we wonder why the West is going you-know-where in a handbasket…

Muslim party leader in the Netherlands tells Dutch to leave their country if they don’t like diversity | Voice of Europe

Tunahan Kuzu, the political leader of the DENK party in the Netherlands, has caused some serious controversy, Dutch broadcaster NOS reports.  “If they don’t like a changing Netherlands in which people with different cultures live… they should get lost,” Kuzu says in an interview.

On the contrary, he’s the one who should leave the country – or “get lost,” if you will (other translations include “can better crumble” and “they will rot,” according to a Google Translate version of the NOS page linked above) – he and all his ilk. They should never have been allowed in, in the first place!

This makes me physically sick. How long are Europeans going to simply accept this arrogant excrement – both the attitude, and the people holding it? When will they rise up? Or are they instead going to simply roll over, belly-up, and say, “thank you, master, I will happily be your dhimmi”…?

The journey toward “Eurabia” is far too advanced, it seems to me.

(For a reasonably balanced account, as such things go, of dhimmitude, see the entry for Dhimmitude, on Revolvy.)

Former House Speaker New Gingrich on Leftist nastiness…

… most recently, a restaurant (The Red Hen) in Lexington, Virginia, which refused service to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders; Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was hounded out of a restaurant by hecklers earlier in the week. On this occasion Nielsen was having a working meal with staff; but earlier she had to deal with protesters outsider her very home! And Sanders was simply trying to have a nice dinner with her family.

Can you imagine if similar officials in the Obama administration had been similarly treated? The elite-o-sphere would be ablaze with accusations of racism, bigotry, Nazism, and who-knows-what else!

At any rate, here’s Speaker Gingrich:

I think he’s right; unfortunately, dying beasts can do a lot of damage with their death throes…

Spoiled leisure – from “I’ll Take My Stand”

Here’s a thought to “cheer” your Saturday:

“It is common knowledge that, wherever it can be said to exist at all, the kind of leisure provided by industrialism is a dubious benefit. It helps nobody but merchants and manufacturers, who have taught us to use it in industriously consuming the products they make in great excess over the demand.

“Moreover, it is spoiled, as leisure, by the kind of work that industrialism compels. The furious pace of our working hours is carried over into our leisure hours, which are feverish and energetic. We live by the clock. Our days are a muddle of ‘activities,’ strenuously pursued. We do not have the free mind and easy temper that should characterize true leisure.

“Nor does the separation of our lives into two distinct parts, of which one is all labor – too often mechanical [whether literally or figuratively] and deadening – and the other all play, undertaken as a nervous relief, seem to be conducive to a harmonious life. The arts will not easily survive a condition under which we work and play at cross-purposes. We cannot separate our being into contradictory halves without a certain amount of spiritual damage.

“The leisure thus offered is really no leisure at all; either it is pure sloth, under which the arts take on the character of mere entertainment, purchased in boredom and enjoyed in utter passivity, or it is another kind of labor, taken up out of a sense of duty, pursed as a kind of fashionable enterprise in which one’s courage must be continually whipped up by reminders of one’s obligation to culture.”

Happy May Day, Calan Mai, and/or Beltane!

May Day as it was once celebrated! My mother recalled such Maypole dances from her college days (Western Maryland College, graduated 1949). This one is from Dover, Delaware: “The black and white photo below shows the Maypole dance in front of Old State House in 1950 (source: Delaware Public Archives).”

Hal an toe! Jolly rumbalo!
We were up, long before the day-o,
To welcome in the Summer-time,
To welcome in the May-o!
For Summer is a-comin’ on,
An’ Winter’s gone away!

— traditional song for May Day, British Isles
