In the latest installment of Radio Deplorable, Dave Carter invites Ricochet’s (and Whiskey Politics’) Dave Sussman onto the program to discuss his recent post (Blood on Their Hands), which generated a veritable avalanche of commentary.  As Dave Carter noted, “I thought it might prove interesting to give Dave Sussman a chance to expand, clarify, reiterate, etc. He did all of that and more, and it was an intriguing discussion to say the least.”  We think you’ll agree.

On my last trip to Birmingham, I stopped for a pint at a local pub on the way to the airport and found myself in one such zone. I was practically escorted out as young Muslim men dressed like football hooligans eyed me with contempt. My guardian angel told me I had no business in that pub or neighborhood, that the “police won’t ‘elp you ‘ere, guv.”
