Mark Steyn Ponders The Vagaries

Mark Steyn returns to comment on the ongoing lack of honesty from this administration regarding Islamofascism:
"Men and women “in uniform” (which it’s not clear these airmen were even wearing) understand they may be called upon to make “extraordinary sacrifices” in battle. They do not expect to be “lost” on the shuttle bus at the hands of a civilian employee at a passenger air terminal in an allied nation. But then I don’t suppose their comrades expected to be “lost” at the hands of an army major at Fort Hood, to cite the last “tragic event” that “took place” — which seems to be the president’s preferred euphemism for a guy opening fire while screaming “Allahu akbar!” But relax, this fellow in Frankfurt was most likely a “lone wolf” (as Sen. Chuck Schumer described the Times Square bomber) or an “isolated extremist” (as the president described the Christmas Day Pantybomber). There are so many of these “lone wolves” and “isolated extremists” you may occasionally wonder whether they’ve all gotten together and joined Local 473 of the Amalgamated Union of Lone Wolves and Isolated Extremists"
Good stuff. Read the whole thing here.


  1. That's a good one, but did you read his 'best of' piece up at his sight on Brad Pitt's Seven Years In Tibet? It was a hoot!

    Now that's fun writing!!

  2. Yes, it seems we have here the Ride of the Vagaries.

    I saw this a while back and could eat every word.

    All these "lone wolf" moments make for quite a Motely Crue assortment of an entire movement for Islamist influence, don't they?

    I'll have to get to the piece on Seven Years in Tibet and ponder what will most assuredly turn out to be a Steynian precis on Multi-Culti sloganeering later.

    Many thanks.

    (yes, this has been "Post With Nick" day. Catching up is so much fun!
