My father didn’t give much great advice, but one thing he said always stuck with me: “Apologizing is for pussies.”

You know what? He’s right. Whenever you say sorry, people take that as a sign of weakness and invariably push for more. That’s why I always go on the offensive, no matter what.

When my neighbor caught me training my dog to crap in his yard, it would have been easy for me to say sorry. I didn’t. I just thanked him for growing a thick, lush lawn that was so shitably soft. He then stared on speechless as I rewarded my dog with a treat after he did his business, and we left.

That’s why I’m infuriated that our gutless politicians are tripping over themselves to apologize to the Muslim world for a film trailer for some anti-Islamic film that wasn’t even made. This pretend film has supposedly triggered protests throughout the Islamic world, but that’s nonsense.

These medieval lunatics riot and burn shit all the time. Whenever they hear something they don’t like, they throw a tantrum. Trust me on this; I’m a medieval lunatic who goes off the deep end and burns shit all the time, too.

The only difference between us is that when I start to feel the mania take hold, I drink myself into my happy place. Since Islam forbids alcohol, they take to the streets.

America became great because of our commitment to freedom. Some would argue that free markets and free speech are the two pillars upon which American prosperity was built. The fact that our current politicians seem committed to undermining both is a huge mistake.

The whole point of free speech is that no politician or group has control over it, and no topics are sacred. The National Endowment for the Arts doesn’t mind funding things like pictures of crucifixes submerged in piss, and that’s fine, but you can’t denigrate one religion and bow to another. You mock them all just like God intended.
