In this outstanding post, Bill Vallicella brings his trademark clarity of thought and exposition to the question of free speech in the dar al-Harb. His brief essay is the best response I’ve seen to the shootings in Garland and the ructions that ensued in the media. Required reading.

    As usual, Bill has it pegged. He and Mark Steyn are in sympathy I believe.

    Just mention not allowing immigrants in any number, or being selective as to whom and the Left will howl like wounded animals.

  2. Bill actually quotes Mark Steyn in his next post.

    Henry, so he did. I do believe that between Bill, Daniel and our host, we as readers have a complete menu of academic excellence for the benefit of we the like minded and those who aspire to be thoroughly informed.

    In the coming social wars, we will need it.

    Thank you, Whitewall, for those kind words. That’s a high standard, but I’ll try to live up to it.

  5. Whitewall,

    I concur, though I’m not sure who “Daniel” is.

    BTW, may we know what your first name is?
