Yes – just imagine what would happen if some conservative had compared a female governor to a horse:
It’s a pity Gingrich was not around when the Roman Emperor Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, better known by his nickname Caligula, reputedly named Incitatus as a consul and a priest. Incitatus was his horse.
Interestingly enough, that is what was done by Richard Cohen.
We await the outraged feminist comments and the public lynching of Mr. Cohen.
The Daily Mail reports that:
Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing to kneel down and ‘pray to Allah’ during a religious education lesson.
Parents were outraged that the two boys from year seven (11 to 12-year-olds) were punished for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped.
They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise at Alsager High School, near Stoke-on-Trent – which included wearing Muslim headgear – was a breach of their human rights.
and the yadda yadda comes fast and furious. The school has a beautiful answer that proves what happened:
A statement from Cheshire County Council on behalf of the school read: “The headteacher David Black contacted this authority immediately complaints were received.
“Enquiries are being made into the circumstances as a matter of urgency and all parents will be informed accordingly.
“Educating children in the beliefs of different faith is part of the diversity curriculum on the basis that knowledge is essential to understanding.
“We accept that such teaching is to be conducted with some sense of sensitivity.”
So we can translate that as, yes this happened and we are furious that all you yokels found out about it. Here’s a little thought experiment – just what would be the reaction should Muslims be punished for not wearing a crucifix and kneeling to pray to Jesus?
Yes – we all know what would happen – including one of the parents quoted in the article:
“But if Muslims were asked to go to church on Sunday and take Holy Communion there would be war.”
Update from the People’s Cube:
(Dante’s Inferno, 7th Level) – Senator Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) comment “The hottest ring in Hell is reserved for those in politics who attack their opponents’ families” made to NBC’s Norah O’Donnell has sent shockwaves to evil thugs around the world, who thought they were a shoe-in for the top hot spot in the eternal pit of damnation and hellfire. An assortment of Nazis, Communists, terrorists, and other violent and sadistic figures were found consoling each other shortly after Durbin’s official announcement.
“I really thought we had the hottest spot locked up after starting a war in Europe that killed 60 million, including over six million of God’s chosen people,” said Dr. Joseph Goebbels, a spokesperson for the National Socialist German Workers Party. “If we had known that the hottest ring in Hell is reserved for those who challenge a Democrat politician’s wife, we would’ve called Eleanor Roosevelt a bitch and saved the world an awful lot of trouble,” he added with dismay.
“What does a guy have to do to get some props up in here?” said an incredulous Joseph Stalin. “No offense to the Nazis, but we killed over 20 million of our own citizens and we are still playing second fiddle to the GOP!” bemoaned the one-time ‘Gardener of Human Happiness,’ who looked very upset. “After all those cold Russian winters I was looking forward to the hottest part in Hell.
Have been identified today:
Disgraced former Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been identified as a long-standing client of a second high-priced call-girl ring, The Post has learned.
At the center of the new ring is Kristin “Billie” Davis, a busty bottle blonde who hails from a rough-and-tumble California trailer park. She has a reputation for hard-partying, shameless self-promotion and a rumored 10,000-name-long client list.
Davis’ alleged multimillion-dollar empire was smashed by city vice cops as she made plans to skip town. Prosecutors say she netted some $2 million last year by pimping out ladies of the night for as much as $1,000 an hour through four Web sites.
Only a thousand bucks an hour? Its good to know that he wasn’t spending his whole children’s college fund on the high-priced whores. I wonder if this will cause a second wave of “prostitution is a victimless crime” and “what difference does it make if he cheats” stories in the press.
