During the 1960s, . . . the most influential thinker was Italian communist Antonio Gramsci. He grasped that the most effective means of overturning Western Society was to subvert its culture and morality. Instead of mobilizing the working class to take over the world, the revolution would be achieved through a culture war, in which the moral beliefs of the majority would be replaced by the values of those on the margins of society. And this would be brought about by capturing all of society’s institutions—schools, universities, churches, the media, the legal profession, the police, voluntary groups—and making sure that this intellectual elite all sang from the same subversive hymn-sheet.

In Britain , Gramsci’s revolutionary aims have been accomplished to the letter

How about in the U.S.?


Madrassas are schools for young Muslim boys whose learning consists of memorizing the Koran. Radical Muslims look to graduates of madrassas for recruits.

An Arab elementary school (one of several) has opened in Brooklyn . Attempts to view its curriculum have failed. Mayor Bloomberg sees no problem. “We have Russian language schools. We have many language schools. We need Arabic translators.”

Examples abound of Muslim indoctrination in schools around the country: for example, Nyssa , Oregon , schools include how to say Muslim prayers, dress up as Muslims. In Fairfax Virginia , non-Muslim students must remove their shoes in the schoolroom and be separated by sex when entering the prayer area. In the Irmo High School in Columbia , South Carolina , students are taught that the U.S. is a “Judeo-Christian-Muslim” nation according to the “beliefs of the founding fathers”; Muslim students are allowed to use the school library for prayer each day.

Seventeen universities have installed Muslim foot baths, Boston University and George Washington University among them. Nine including Stanford, Emory, and University of Virginia have prayer rooms for “Muslim students only.”


Jihadist sympathizers attend mosques. British police won’t enter a mosque if they know there is a terrorist inside. Sahim Alwan, president of the mosque in Lackawanna , New York , was the first American to attend an al Qaeda training camp. A Los Angeles police official lamented, “We’ll come back from a Kumbayah meeting with a local mosque and realize that these guys who just agreed to help us are in our terror files!”

In Waterbury a five-year project to build a large mosque is under way. Its sponsors are pleased that it will be tall enough to be seen from Route 84. A madrassa will be in it.


Some Columbia University faculty plan to travel to Iran to apologize to Ahmadinejad in the name of Columbia .

At Michigan State University , Engineering Professor Indrek Wichman e-mailed the Muslim Students Association in response to their protest as “hate speech” the Danish cartoons portraying the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist. (He did not know his e-mail would be publicized.)

Wrote the Professor, “I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things, like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey), burnings of Christian churches [the latest in Kenya], the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called “whores” in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris, France.

“. . . . I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile ‘protests.’
If you do not like the values of the West—see the first amendment—you are free to leave. . . .” [That is also Australia ’s position.]

The Muslim students demanded he be reprimanded, the faculty be given diversity training, and the freshmen be given a seminar on hate and discrimination.

The Michigan chapter of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, assisted. CAIR keeps a stable of lawyers to charge hatred and discrimination and bring lawsuits. The University refused the demands.


A Muslim group is suing Canada ’s leading national newsweekly because it published figures on high Muslim birthrates from journalist Mark Steyn’s book, America Alone. The Canadian Islamic Congress complained to the national human rights commission and the provincial rights commissions of Ontario and British Columbia that Stein is promoting hatred against Canada ’s 750,000 Muslims.

Radio host Michael Savage has discussed the Islamist threat on his talk show on WOR, AM 710. CAIR, to drive him off the air, has urged the CEOs of AT&T, JC Penney, AutoZone, Wal-Mart, Sears, and Universal Orlando Resort to stop sponsoring his program. CAIR has brought suit. He has countersued. Talk-show hosts on WABC have never, to our knowledge, alluded to this free-speech controversy.


The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission always, and the Federal Aeronautics Administration when relevant, strongly support CAIR even in cases bordering on national security.

In the Department of Defense, according to national security reporter Bill Gertz, pro-Muslim officials oppose Stephen Coughlin, the Department’s specialist on Islamic law and Islamist extremists. He met with Hasham Islam (a Muslims and a close aide to Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England ). Islam urged Coughlin to take a softer line on Muslims, while disparaging Coughlin is a “Christian extremist with a pen.”

Coughlin found a document revealing that the Islamic Society of North America is part of the “pro-extremist” Muslim Brotherhood. Secretary England has hosted the Islamic Society, suggesting he is not aware of the nature of the Islamist threat.

Jan. 7: Stephen Coughlin has been fired. This leaves Defense in the hands of “a budding support network for Islamist extremists including front groups for the radical Muslim Brotherhood,” according to Reporter Gertz.

Voluntary groups.

In Phoenix , a Muslim publisher of two radical newspapers who unapologetically supports terrorists and attacks moderate Muslims who disagree with him, had been put on the Phoenix Human Rights Commission, whose function is to promote respect among all groups. But he is venomously anti-U.S., anti-Israel, pro-Hamas. He has since been removed from the Commission. CAIR, claiming his free-speech has been denied him, demands he be put back on and be given an apology.

The gurus of Political Correctness sacrifice free speech to placate Muslim immigrants. Myopic Britain has lost the culture war. We have the benefit of Britain ’s disastrous experience. Can we learn by it?

The Blumenthal Burisma Connection

Steve Hilton , a Fox News commentator who over the weekend had connected some Burisma corruption dots, had this to say about Connecticut U.S. Senator Dick Blumenthal’s association with the tangled knot of corruption in Ukraine: “We cross-referenced the Senate co-sponsors of Ed Markey's Ukraine gas bill with the list of Democrats whom Burisma lobbyist, David Leiter, routinely gave money to and found another one -- one of the most sanctimonious of them all, actually -- Sen. Richard Blumenthal."

Dave Walker, Turning Around The Misery Index

Dave Walker, who is running for Lieutenant Governor on the Republican Party ticket, is recognized by most credible political observers as perhaps the most over qualified candidate for Lieutenant Governor in state history. He is a member of the Accounting Hall of Fame and for ten years was the Comptroller General of the United States. When Mr. Walker talks about budgets, financing and pension viability, people listen. Mr. Walker is also attuned to fine nuances in political campaigning. He is not running for governor, he says, because he had moved to Connecticut only four years ago and wishes to respect the political pecking order. Very few people in the state think that, were he governor, Mr. Walker would know less about the finance side of government than his budget chief.

Murphy Stumbles

Blumenthal and Murphy U.S. Senator Chris Murphy has been roughly cuffed by some news outlets, but not by Vox, which published on April 16 a worshipful article on Connecticut’s Junior Senator, “ The Senator of State : How Connecticut’s Chris Murphy, a rising Democratic star, would run the world.” On April 15, The Federalist mentioned Murphy in an article entitled “ Sen. Chris Murphy: China And The World Health Organization Did Nothing Wrong . The lede was a blow to Murphy’s solar plexus: “Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy exonerated China of any wrongdoing over the global pandemic stemming from the novel Wuhan coronavirus on Tuesday. “’The reason that we’re in the crisis that we are today is not because of anything that China did, is not because of anything the WHO [World Health Organization] did,’ said Murphy during a prime-time interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.”
