Re: “At the Eno River Festival, North Carolinians Fight for Their Own Backyard

I had tickets to see Ani up in Annapolis last week, but I did not go after her insulting cancellation of the Eno gig. I have seen her many times over the years, but never again.

Re: “Burning Coal Theatre Company has championed Middle Eastern artists. So why did its director deride them on Facebook?

'...he derided Middle Eastern culture for "generation after generation of incompetence, stupidity and failure."'

I did not see the original post, so maybe it is true that Mr. Davis wrote those words about "Middle Eastern culture". However, the group that claimed responsibility for the attacks was not a Middle Eastern culture group; it was the Islamic State. This was carried about by Islamic jihadists, with explicitly Muslim justifications. Euphemisms do not help. Of course, if Mr. Davis did refer specifically to Middle Eastern culture, then he was the one obfuscating the matter.

Funny how progressives cannot handle an angry facebook comment, made right after the outrageous Paris attacks, yet they are often fine with talking about Republicans, or Christians, using the same ideas and, indeed, the same specific terms used by Mr. Davis. A few days ago, I endured a little sermonette about people living in the middle of the US. The speaker stressed how "stupid" they were, not to mention cravenly fearful. This was, as we know, hardly an isolated sort of incident. You hear it all the time.
