Kathy Shaidle is a great warrior of free speech in Canada, where that fundamental right is already largely lost -- as she chronicles in her book The Tyranny of Nice (which she wrote with Pete Vere). The book is "excellent, superb, rollicking, harrowing, much needed," as I told her in an email. And her weblog Five Feet of Fury maintains the same level of excellence as it chronicles, among other things, the demise of sanity and pusillanimity before Islamic supremacism in Canada in the most wildly entertaining fashion, full of Swiftian savage indignation, making it a daily must-read. If we had five Kathy Shaidles, there would be no stealth jihad in this country or on this continent.
Unfortunately, we have only one, and we do have a stealth jihad here, and that Lone Extant Kathy Shaidle has done me the great honor of reviewing my book about the stealth jihad.
"Author: halt all Muslim immigration to America," by Kathy Shaidle in The Examiner, November 24:
While the nation's juvenile delinquents of all ages remain elated by the election of President Hope N. Change (funniest nickname yet? "Teleprompter Jesus"), we grown ups are obliged to stay abreast of our enemies' plans.
When we hear the phrase "Muslim terrorism," we tend to visualize the mass murders of September 11, 2001. Yet as that day's events recede into memory, and might as well be considered forgotten by some Americans, we need to understand that the jihadist threat to our culture and security takes many forms.
These alternative methods of jihad aren't as dramatic as the attacks of 9/11, but in their own way they represent a kind of slow motion, under the radar attack on America.
Robert Spencer's new book delineates these low level attacks. Stealth Jihad: How Radical Islam is Subverting America without Guns or Bombs makes for depressing reading, not just because Muslim supremicists are trying to take over the U.S. through our courts, charities, colleges and even public elementary schools, but because -- as the election of Barack Obama (the ultimate "September 10" candidate) seems to indicate, millions of Americans couldn't care less. [...]
Spencer's diagnosis is dire, and his prescriptions are dramatic and definitely politically incorrect; halting all Muslim immigration to America is his most daring suggestion.
Yet this isn't a book by a raving fanatic. Spencer is a surprisingly mild mannered fellow, especially considering how many death threats he receives from members of "the religion of peace" every day. [...]
"Surprisingly mild mannered"? But only by day, Kathy, only by day: by night, I am Freakin' Batman.
