You can’t get much more Heartland than Oklahoma and we always did love the Heartland. Now it’s comin’ through for us bigtime. Urban Tulsa Weekly out of Tulsa, Oklahoma just picked up Diversity Lane as a regular weekly ‘toon in both its popular hardcopy edition seen all over town and its PDF edition available online. This is a hot weekly with lots of great columns and up-to-date coverage of sports, arts, dining & more. With their young & happening conservative flair, we’re mighty proud to be in their pages.
Hope ‘n’ Change is like an alternate universe experience: all the news & latest headlines are the same as in our world, except they’re funny. John Boehner is here preparing to take the gavel from Pelosi, but this time he’s threatening her with it. New congressional Republicans read aloud from the Constitution, and in response a Democrat rises demonically from a bed a la “The Exorcist.” Creator Stilton Jarlsberg presents thorough highlights of what’s going down in the world in a style anything but smelly or European despite his name. It’s a blog I still go back to regularly and recommend highly, especially if you can’t stand leftists.
Dr. Jamie Glazov of Frontpage Magazine has just published what Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney calls “the most important book in America.” After reading the full review by Richard Perle at Frontpage it hardly sounds like an overstatement. From Perle’s review:
“In this extraordinary collection of interviews, Jamie Glazov demonstrates that consistent, searching questions can both enrich and impart coherence to disparate answers: for what emerges from 29 interviews conducted over eight years is an illuminating and important commentary on the largest issues facing America and the West.
It is a commentary whose preoccupation reflects history—Jamie’s Glazov’s history, rich in the issues of identity, freedom, truth telling and courage. Jamie, it may be said, has had rather more history than he needed—as a man whose parents were dissidents in the Soviet Union and who was taught the values of freedom and the courage to fight for it from the beginning. It is no wonder that he is so wholly absorbed in understanding and opposing, radical, political Islam and its apologists. Today’s “useful idiots,” like those who preceded them, are drawn almost entirely from the Left. Indeed, many of the individuals are the same, as is the intellectual foundation of their obsessive disdain for the liberal values of an open society. In one way or another nearly all the interviews in this book touch on the readiness of the Left, in an often ludicrous pursuit of political correctness, to accept, and even to advance, the Islamist agenda that has replaced communism as the principal threat to western values and civilization…”
Diversity Lane would like to thank VDARE, the courageous website supported by former Forbes editor Peter Brimelow and his VDARE Foundation. Focusing on illegal immigration and related issues, this is one of the most stunningly honest and therefore important sites I know of and it was a great honor to receive their attention in this recent piece.
