Daniel Greenfield, To what extent is migration from south of the border bringing up infections in America? That’s a subject that the media has a block on despite increasing evidence, especially in Texas, of a link between migration and the virus.
Meanwhile country-level data (much of which is incomplete or worthless, but nonetheless) shows Brazil as having the world’s second highest death toll while Mexico has the world’s fourth highest death toll.
So of course it’s the perfect time for Democrats to once again on their familiar program of open borders, dropping immigration enforcement at the border, welcoming any illegal migration who shows up as a refugee, and opening up international immigration all over again.
What could go wrong?
In Year of Black Lives Matter Riots, NYPD Injuries Up 47%
It wasn’t that long ago that New York City was reasonably safe. Then Democrats got together with Black Lives Matter and turned it into a violent hellhole.
This is the outcome.
At least 472 cops across all ranks have been injured responding to riots and protests since May 28, department data shows. Officers have been shot at, stabbed, assaulted with rocks, bricks, struck by vehicles and had Molotov cocktails hurled at them, officials said.
Of those injured, 319 cops required hospital treatment and seven, like Lt. Richard Mack, who was badly beaten while making a July arrest on the Brooklyn Bridge, were admitted to hospitals.
The 472 hurt cops contributed to 7,528 NYPD line-of-duty injuries so far in 2020, up 47 percent from the 5,133 in 2019, NYPD data through Sept. 24 reveals.
Unsurprisingly, freeing much of the city’s criminal element, and then refusing to charge it or lock it up after it commits crimes, has been utterly destructive, and has not only wrecked a lot of people’s lives, but also a lot of police officers who have been on the front lines of this war.
This is what happens to Democrat cities. It’s what happens when politicians decide to champion criminals over cops and civilians.
Sharia Law in Nigeria Leads to 10-Year Sentence for 13 Year Old, Death Penalty for Singer
The Obama administration undermined Nigeria’s Christian president while cheering the rise of its former Islamic dictator.
Now some human rights groups are belatedly noticing that parts of the country run under Islamic law look a whole like ISIS.
U.N. rights experts asked Nigeria on Monday to release a 22-year-old singer who was condemned to death over an allegedly blasphemous song, and said the sentence broke international law.
Yahaya Aminu Sharif was sentenced last month by a sharia court in Kano, in Nigeria’s mostly Muslim north, after he performed the song and shared it on WhatsApp.
“Music is not a crime,” read a joint statement from the group of U.N. rapporteurs.
It is under Islam. And 13-year-olds are criminals.
Child rights agency UNICEF has condemned the sentencing of a 13-year-old boy to 10 years in prison for blasphemy in northern Nigeria.
Omar Farouq was convicted in a Sharia court in Kano State in northwest Nigeria after he was accused of using foul language toward Allah in an argument with a friend.
He was sentenced on August 10 by the same court that recently sentenced a studio assistant Yahaya Sharif-Aminu to death for blaspheming Prophet Mohammed, according to lawyers.
The lawyer said Farouq’s mother had fled to a neighboring town after mobs descended on their home following his arrest.
I’m sure Nigeria will get right on that now that the UN has spoken.
This is part of a larger pattern.
A prominent Nigerian humanist accused of blasphemy has been arrested and taken to the northern city of Kano, according to figures close to him.
Mubarak Bala, the president of the Humanist Association of Nigeria, was taken from his home on 28 April in neighbouring Kaduna state and taken to Kano, where a warrant for his arrest was issued, Leo Igwe, a fellow Nigerian humanist and human rights advocate, said.
Igwe said police had denied Bala access to a lawyer and had not said what the charges were, heightening fears for his safety.
While Islamic massacres of Christians have gotten plenty of attention, the growing Islamist crackdown through its legal system is making waves. Belatedly.
The situation in Nigeria resembles that of the Arab Spring, where Obama’s people decided that the best solution to Islamic terrorists was to empower Islamists. Now a range of ordinary people are paying the price.
