Menin Road

I am 45 years old. I am a librarian and fanatic reader. This blog is a memorial to a world at war, 1914-1918.  I'll also add other things that interest me. I've named this blog after the Menin Road.  This is a monument to the thousands of missing  from the Ypres battle fields...

Okay, well, I have never done one of these things before so you’ll have to excuse if it looks like complete and utter shite at the moment, the same goes for the banner. Lately I feel as though I have been drifting from my friends on here and I wanted them to know that I still appreciate all that they do and for them letting me be their friend. Also, 600 followers seems like a good landmark. So without anymore pointless rambling, here is my first “Follow Forever” post.

Alright, so quite the ridiculous and unorganized list isn’t it? Anyway’s, all the same, each and everyone of you is great and you make coming back to this God forsaken website better every time. If you have been left off the list by accident, or you wish to be added, shoot me an ask and I’ll get right on it. I’ll do another one some time in the future, hopefully it will be better and more organized. 

Thank you! What an honor!  I shall follow you forever, too!!!

Muslim Student Challenges Jewish Professor, He Shuts Her Up On The Spot

Editor-In-Chief of NewsReal Blog, David Horowitz gave lecture at UC San Diego to combat the ‘Muslim Students Association’s Israeli Apartheid Week’, what some are referring to ‘Hitler Youth Week’. During the question & answer portion of the talk, David had an interesting and bone-chilling encounter with a member of the MSA. He then went ahead to reveal the real intention of her visit to the meeting.

What happens in this video is so chilling, it feels almost like its scripted and that it could be in a movie. Wait for her last 2 words. They are stunningly racist and extremely hateful.

As stated by David Swindle over at NewsReal Blog, whats shocking is not the fact that she holds the views but rather she is so willing to admit it.
