Free Speech, Dan Arel And Trolls In A Barrel

image

Richard Spencer (see terrible human being) was sucker punched in the face on the streets of Washington whilst attempting to give an interview to camera last week. This assault has been instructive insofar as it’s helped to separate the pro-free speech liberals from the thuggish ideologues within my own circles. In fact, I barely would have bothered to offer an opinion on this incident had it not been so widely endorsed and gleefully celebrated by people who should really know better.

My East Coast Radio Discussion On #RealHousewivesOfISIS

image

I recently wrote about the outrage surrounding the BBC comedy sketch show ‘Revolting’ – specifically their ‘Real Housewives Of ISIS’ skit.

I received an invite from East Coast Radio (the largest regional radio station in South Africa) to discuss this further. You can now listen to that discussion below. It’s only 4 minutes, but I did my make the best of the time.

Please leave your thoughts in the comments.

I often cannot accept radio requests due to being occupied by a full-time job. If you’d like this to change, please consider supporting me on Patreon so that I may become a full-time content creator.

Why We Need ‘The Real Housewives Of ISIS’

image

I love satire and comedy. In the battle of ideas, its firepower cannot be overstated. In these bleak times of daily Islamic encroachments on humanity, I often looked to the masters of this game to provide some levity, and most importantly – to fire some shots back. Verbally of course.

It’s with great regret then, that the satirical titans of our day (and heroes of mine) consistently go missing where this topic is concerned.
