Daily Mail Shames Victim with Video of Sex Attack (but she’s an unnamed Chinese so who cares?)

No context. No obvious – or even covert – expression of disgust for, you know, the sleaze responsibly. Just a prurient link to the video of this appalling instance.
I would say this does not meet any public interest criteria. What a bunch of cockweasels.

Love Me, I’m a Liberal!

Well, I wept when they jailed Chelsea Manning,
A hero for our time.
And I cheered when Snowden ran to Russia,
Stealing government secrets is fine.
But Charlie Hebdo were bigots and racists,
They should have known that punching down is a crime.
So love me, love me, love me…I’m a liberal.

The Obnoxious Idiocy of Yasir Qadhi

Yasir Qadhi is a prominent American Islamic preacher. He studied Islam in Saudi Arabia and it shows: he has an awful record of vicious statements about Shia Muslims, homosexuals, Jews, and much more.
He has had to whittle down that Saudi Islam in the face of sustained criticism, recanting earlier statements and insisting he has [...]

The Luton Islamic Centre – Still for Death for Apostates

Should apostates from a religion be killed? It’s a preposterous question for most of us in the world, thankfully.
For many Islamists, by contrast, it’s a red line and it must stay.
Only under an “Islamic state”, mind you, is a typical Salafi caveat.
As if the caveat counted for anything. It doesn’t. The very [...]

Incidental nonsense, bicycling nonsense

When the Plebgate story broke, cyclists were staunch. Though it’s neither big nor clever to swear at the police, a cyclist’s right of way had been unreasonably impeded.
According to the law books, there is a right for all Her Majesty’s subjects at all seasons of the year freely and at their will to pass [...]

Something Funny?

As the Prime Minister was addressing MPs on the imminent threat to the life of Scots hostage, David Haines in Syria, at least half of the SNP Westminster group considered it a moment for cheap grandstanding and bandying around YES banners.
From left to right: Angus Robertson of Moray; Pete Wishart of Perth and North Perthshire; [...]

Owen Jones and Tim Llewellyn

This post was published in August 2014. Since Owen Jones is engaged in pious bleating about antisemitism yet again these days, it has been republished to remind readers how worthless his words on this subject really are. The CST also covered this event in 2014. So did Owen Jones pull out? [...]

How Did You Spend Last Night?

Not, I hope, jeering a pair of 18 year old girls. If so, shame on you.

How Not To Be A Wanker

Then again, a colossal jerk is dead.

Adel al-Kalbani Will Not Tour the UK

It turns out that Saudi preacher Adel al-Kalbani will not be touring the UK:
A former imam of the Grand Mosque in Makkah was stopped from traveling to Britain as he boarded his plane in Riyadh bound for London on Wednesday.
Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani had performed the noon and afternoon prayers together just before the boarding announcement [...]
