‘Great Satan’ Americans pay for pro-Islam elites

TALIBAN AMBASSADOR TO PAKISTAN ZAEEF LISTEN TO JOURNALISTS' QUESTIONS IN ISLAMABADI very seldom watch major network television, but last week I had the extreme displeasure of viewing an installment of ABC News’ “What Would You Do?” The show is hosted by news veteran John Quinones, and features what might be considered staged moral dilemmas played out in a public setting.

Segments consist of actors playing out morally ambivalent vignettes in public places (like restaurants, laundromats, etc.), challenging bystanders to intervene, or not to intervene, based on their level of mortification and I suppose, their courage. One past segment featured an actor making disparaging remarks about homosexual unions in a restaurant, directly challenging other individuals present who supported same. The confrontations end with John Quinones revealing himself à la “Candid Camera,” and interviewing the bystander participants. The show clearly if insidiously conveys an uber-liberal worldview, if you hadn’t guessed already. I also can’t help but wondering if the title is a subtle mockery of the popular “What Would Jesus Do” adage, but I digress.

The segment of which I speak depicted a young white male (actor) refusing service in an establishment wherein he was to be waited on by a young Muslim man. Using language and behavior befitting someone with a severely sloping forehead, he was blatantly rude and offensive, finally inciting others around him to suggest he take his business elsewhere. 

The objective of “What Would You Do” is twofold, of course: To engender widespread sympathy for those with whom the left wishes Americans to sympathize, and to portray people of a more traditional worldview as possessing severely sloping foreheads.

Islamists on the march? Move along; nothing to see here…


muslim-protesters-The gruesome killing of a British soldier in London this week by Islamists and the attendant reactions by the press and politicians make clear two things: One, that Islam cannot be treated as a legitimate faith in the American tradition and in the context of the First Amendment, and two, Americans must wrest control of our country from liberal-progressives with all due speed, and by any means necessary.

I borrow the phrase “by any means necessary” from 1960s civil rights leader Malcolm X (who ironically, was a Muslim) for the same reason he did. While he knew a call for armed insurgence by blacks would have brought down the wrath of the entire law enforcement machine upon him and his colleagues, he also knew it was important to impart a sense of relational gravity to the struggle. Hadn’t those who initiated the American Revolution done so over less injustice than blacks had suffered under segregation and Jim Crow laws?

It has also been pointed out that those who initiated the American Revolution did so over far less than that which the Federal government currently practices across many fronts – but I digress…

The dawn of the ‘M-word’

Yes, it would be peachy if everyone could “just get along.” As the product of a mixed-race marriage who was raised to discern character rather than appearance or creed, I consider myself to be quite tolerant, despite recent accusations to the contrary. The reality of coexistence, however, remains the same as it has been since human beings lived in caves. It’s a coin toss as to whether that tribe on the other side of the river – no different than their neighbors on this side – will determine to coexist, or to attempt to dominate, enslave, or even kill the ones over here.

hiraba1Nations – unless they have lost their collective mind – always act in their own self-interest. I am not here to act as an apologist for American foreign policy; as a society directed by human beings, we have probably made as many mistakes in our foreign policy as we have in our domestic policy. Suffice it to say that the United States of America has done far more to contribute to the liberty and tranquility of other nations than we have to harm them, especially when compared to history and our contemporaries of equivalent power and influence. Indictments to the contrary are simply well-crafted propaganda I have personally resolved not to dignify with argument any longer.

Since the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, several contentious issues have concurrently come to the fore. Immigration, national security and the Second Amendment all came into play with regard to the bombing, manhunt and standoffs that ultimately ended with one bomber dead and one in custody. The Obama administration’s alleged transparency is also a factor, as they continue to obstruct justice and obfuscate pertaining to the narrative.

‘My country, always wrong’

I find it amazing what manages to pass for “white” in America when the political left wants it to. During the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers last week, the press made it painfully evident that they desperately hoped the perpetrators would wind up being conservative tea-party Christian Republicans, but at least white.

muslim-protest“Please don’t be a Muslim” even graced the title of one Washington Post article – but we’ll address that brand of insanity in a bit.

When the suspects were finally identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the press immediately pronounced them “white.” A collective “A-HA!” of vindication rose on the airwaves and in cyberspace, as though all of America had somehow been certain that “brown people did it.”

Although the brothers Tsarnaev are technically “Caucasian” in the sense that their home country, Chechnya, lies in the North Caucasus mountains of Russia, they aren’t what has been considered “white” in the Western world for centuries. Generally speaking, people who fall into that category are those descended from forebears in Northern and Western Europe, Scandinavia and the British Isles, inasmuch as Southern Europeans, some Eastern Europeans, Eurasians and even the Irish have historically suffered discrimination under the former in the West.

Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are Eurasian. Well, Tamerlan was Eurasian; his surviving brother Dzhokhar remains so.

USA Today blockbuster article exposes Boston area radical mosques

boston mosque1Via Act For America and USA Today

Amid all the typical politically correct news stories and ruminations by pundits about the Boston Marathon terrorist attack, USA Today ran an article this morning (highlights added) that exposes the radicalism prevalent in two Boston-area mosques and their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

When you read the story—and we urge you to do so—pay particular attention to how mosque leaders react.

BOSTON — The mosque attended by the two brothers accused in the Boston Marathon double bombing has been associated with other terrorism suspects, has invited radical speakers to a sister mosque in Boston and is affiliated with a Muslim group that critics say nurses grievances that can lead to extremism.

Several people who attended the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge, Mass., have been investigated for Islamic terrorism, including a conviction of the mosque’s first president, Abdulrahman Alamoudi, in connection with an assassination plot against a Saudi prince.

Its sister mosque in Boston, known as the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, has invited guests who have defended terrorism suspects. A former trustee appears in a series of videos in which he advocates treating gays as criminals, says husbands should sometimes beat their wives and calls on Allah (God) to kill Zionists and Jews, according to Americans for Peace and Tolerance, an interfaith group that has investigated the mosques.

The head of the group is among critics who say the two mosques teach a brand of Islamic thought that encourages grievances against the West, distrust of law enforcement and opposition to Western forms of government, dress and social values.

“We don’t know where these boys were radicalized, but this mosque has a curriculum that radicalizes people. Other people have been radicalized there,” said the head of the group, Charles Jacobs.
