"This homily is not a hymn to self-sacrifice. It is a hymn to the spirit of man, the spirit that loves life, and strives with unimaginable heroism to reclaim and reaffirm it when it is under threat from those who hate it and would destroy the people and things that make anything worthy of the name 'life' possible."

Fifty Years of Appeasement Led to Black Tuesday

Wednesday, September 12, 2001

By: Leonard Peikoff

Fifty years of increasing American appeasement in the Mideast have led to fifty years of increasing contempt in the Muslim world for the United States. The inevitable climax was the tens of thousands of deaths on September 11, 2001--the blackest day in our history, so far. The Palestinians, among others, responded by dancing in the streets and handing out candy.

SOLO's Declaration of War!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2006-09-06 08:13

As the fifth anniversary approaches of the pre-eminent attack in recent times by Islamo-Fascist filth on western civilization, President Bush has reminded his countrymen they are still at war. "Bin Laden and his terrorist allies have made their intentions as clear as Lenin and Hitler before them. The question is 'Will we listen? Will we pay attention to what these evil men say?'"

Report from the Front: Happy Labor Day: We're All Workers!

Happy Labor Day: We're All Workers!

by Edward Hudgins

When Congress declared Labor Day a national holiday in 1894 it marked not only a celebration by workers but a division of Americans into groups often seen as opposed to one another.

'Boston Legal' Goes Down The Tube :-(

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2006-08-30 07:32

I never thought I'd switch off Boston Legal, let alone the two-hour season finale. For sparkling dialogue, KASS courtroom speeches and a willingness to eschew PC, BL has long been among my fave TV shows. But I did note with alarm its ongoing sell-out to fashionable nihilism & pomo-wanking—headbanging caterwauling segueing from one scene to the next, seasickness-inducing hand-held camera-work, etc.. For the sake of lines like "The distinguishing attribute of human beings is their ability to reason" (from just last week: Alan to Denny) I was prepared to put up with it. Last night it was just too much. TV by esthetic savages with Attention Deficit Disorder for esthetic savages with Attention Deficit Disorder. It was disgusting, & I turned it off.

Daily Linz 5 - Ignoble Islam
by Lindsay Perigo

Islamo-fascist filth proclaimed their odious presence again this week when three of their number launched suicide bomb-attacks in Bali, Indonesia—the second time in three years this tourist resort has been attacked. In the wake of their murder and mayhem, the cleric-maggot jailed for master-minding the 2002 carnage (202 killed) praised suicide-bombers as “noble,” urged jihadists to use nuclear weapons and opined that Muslims would fight the West till it agreed to be ruled by Islam.

Daily Linz 3 - Slime on SOLO
by Lindsay Perigo

There’s an artist I know to whom I once introduced the world of The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged and Objectivism. His existing milieu was that of pomo-wankerism ... of framed excrement, blotches and smears, clutter and entropy—the usual stock-in-trade of the contemporary artistic establishment. On his wall was a painting by one of his tutors—a human skull with an axe through it. That is his milieu still. Having contemplated what I had shown him, he announced to me that he couldn’t fault it, but neither could he accept it because to do so would require him to “turn my world upside down.” Since then he has projected a resentment towards me that I can only put down to my being the embodiment of a reproach. He knows his world to be depraved, and I am to blame for opening his eyes to its depravity. He would rather have remained in thrall to his mentors without being made aware that they were swamp-dwellers with sores oozing pus.

Funny Feminazis

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2006-08-22 07:18

Tomorrow, in Auckland, New Zealand, there will be a "Boobs on Bikes" parade down the main street, Queen Street. Topless women on the backs of motorbikes, promoting the annual adult erotica event in Auckland. Of course, in our ideal world, decisions about "public" nudity will be made by private property owners. In the meantime, we can laugh, or cry, at the antics of the feminazis out to stop this parade. One of them has just appeared on TV saying if it were about breast-feeding, that would be OK. Another sent me & all other magazine/newspaper editors this e-mail today:

John Gagnon!

When this handsome fellow first showed up some months back, I somehow, quite uncharacteristically, managed to note that particular quality. But I quickly realised he wasn't just a pretty face. Impressively, for a young 'un, he wasn't a Saddamite, and appeared to have the same loathing of appeasement I did. Impressively, for a young 'un, he could spell, string sentences together, punctuate them properly, and express himself eloquently. He had intelligence, humour, style and KASS. He knew his Objectivism. He seemed to love SOLO. So, when Jason told me his new academic commitments precluded his continuing in the (almost-) top job, I thought I'd sound John out. I told him in part, "I thought of you 'cos you seem to be really in synch with the SOLO spirit and are philosophically a fellow-hard-ass.:-)"

Apologies for lack of audio. I didn't make it to the studio today after several hours of bad angina. These are the remarks I had prepared.

Radio Live Rant, June 11

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2006-06-11 04:41

This one was delivered as scheduled. It begins identically to last week's undelivered one, but changes part-way through.—Linz

There’s been lot of it about since I last spoke to you. Barking madness, I mean. Some of it’s good, most of it is innocently bonkers, some of it is quite intentionally evil.

Michael Cullen has certainly gone barking mad. The flaky Finance Minister went nuts at press gallery journalists for letting their own desire for tax cuts get in the way of their objectivity in reporting the issue. This after a catastrophic poll showing Labour trailing National by nine points, after omitting tax cuts from the latest budget, notwithstanding that they take $9 billion more of our money than they spend so lovingly on our welfare. Now Mad Michael must surely know that not only is it in fact the first recourse of a desperate politician to blame the media for his woes, but it’s also seen to be by voters, notwithstanding their quite extraordinary stupidity—so his impromptu tirade will send his fortunes plummeting further. But even crazier is his claim that journalists in general and those he singled out in particular, are in favour of tax cuts. At least three of those and 99% of all journalists are raving lefties who’d probably favour tax increases, especially for the evil rich. The idea that the current Fourth Estate, and the supinely subservient press gallery in particular, are zealous protectors of our liberty and our money from the greedy intrusiveness of Big Government is ludicrous. Crazy Cullen was screaming at his own allies. Barking mad, bad.

A huge setback for Islamo-fascists and their anarcho-Saddamite "libertarian" fellow-travellers, as reported a few minutes ago by the BBC—

Zarqawi killed in Iraq air raid

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki has announced that militant leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been killed. "Today we have managed to put an end to Zarqawi," Mr Maliki said, sparking sustained applause.

The Jordanian-born leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq was considered the figurehead of the Sunni insurgency. Reports say he was killed in an air raid near Baquba.

In accordance with what had become the FreeRad's quarterly schedule, Issue 71 would normally have been out around now. But we've been working through some technical production issues, making some changes, and regrouping. Issue 71 will now shock the world on July 1, and we'll revert to a bi-monthly schedule thereafter, meaning there'll be six issues each year, and three more this year—July/August, September/October, November/December. Guest editor for Issue 71 will be my KASS colleague Peter Cresswell, while I gird my loins for my expedition to California and my Valliant book-signing presentation. If you'd like to submit something to Peter for publication, send it to him at organon@ihug.co.nz.
