Brutalization of women by ISIS

After attacking a village, [the Islamic State] splits women from men and executes boys and men aged 14 and over. The women and mothers are separated; girls are stripped naked, tested for virginity and examined for breast size and prettiness. The youngest, and those considered the prettiest virgins fetch higher prices and are sent to Raqqa, the IS stronghold.

In the 1950s the Mercedes-Benz 300 stood for elegance and economic success following the post-war period. In Three Coins in the Fountain (1954, directed by Jean Negulesco), for example, the Roman prince and bon viveur Dino di Cessi (Louis Jordan) drives a silver 300 Sc Cabriolet.

John C. Wright on Social Justice McCarthyites

Quote

John C. Wright on Social Justice McCarthyites:

“The honest Leftists want to see the bridge crew of the Starship Enterprise, oriental and occidental, male and female, white and black, including a Russian, a Scotchman, and a Vulcan thrown in for spice.

The SJWs [Social Justice Warriors] want Kirk humiliated and forgotten, and then the rest of the crew dead, until only Uhura of planet Twofer is left…”

Interesting observation about how the Left continues to fight previous (social) wars:

“The Leftwing are trying to free the slaves that have already been freed, and shatter the sexual morals of the Victorians, which have been in tatters for over half a century, and reform industrial-labor relations that had been reformed successfully and nonviolently since roughly half a century before Marx took up his pen to complain about them. The miserable working conditions of the factory system in England, which was hardly a free market, were old news and out of date from even before Marx’s time.”
