Election 2012: 2015 Archives
Well, the liberal press from the New York Times on down seem to think that the cartoonists and those others attending the free speech Mohammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas would have gotten what they deserved if the two shooters had been successful in slaughtering them all.
The First Amendment is to ensure free speech, especially free speech that some might consider insulting or offensive. Sometimes outrageous speech is essential to wake people up to threats they don't see or don't want to see.
It is as if government and too many opinion leaders in the West are in a trance when it comes to Islam. Most know by now that Islam is not a "Religion of Peace" -- or do they?
Three examples: Following the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, the president of France said it had nothing to do with Islam. Huh?
When the British soldier Rigby was attacked by two Muslims and killed and nearly decapitated on the streets of London as they shouted "Allahu Akbar," the Prime Minister assured the public it had nothing to do with Islam.
With the British election coming May 7th, the leader of the Labor Party has announced that if he becomes prime minister he will make "Islamophobia" a crime. In other words, any criticism or fear of Islam that is expressed will be considered an irrational statement and punished by British law. Madness.
These are three examples of delusion or deliberate lies driven by denial or fear. They do a disservice to the people of France and Britain.
What is the real situation, what is the truth that is being hidden?
Non-Muslims are the targets in a war being waged by Islam for almost 1400 years now. Islamic leaders know that they are waging war. They say so. "Death to America" is a hint.
Most non-Muslims don't want to believe what American presidents as far back as Jefferson and John Quincy Adams (and Winston Churchill) understood about Islam.
Every constitutional means available needs to be used to wake people up, shock people, into seeing the brutal reality staring them in the face.
That's what the Mohammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas was about. As the media and our government continue to deny the existence of this endless war of Islam’s true believers to gain territory and adherents and subjugate to Sharia or kill the rest, it falls to a few brave souls to sound the alarm on behalf of civilization.
We can hope and pray that Islam will reform, but there is no indication from its leaders whether in Tehran or Riyadh and elsewhere that their goal of world domination through violence and whatever other means work, such as lies, deceit, terrorism, intimidation, invasion by immigration and government infiltration, is being abandoned.
Islam's true believers, jihadists, who are persecuting and killing Christians and other non-Muslims are doing exactly what the Koran commands and Mohammad said and did, What are they doing that Mohammad didn't do? They are perverting nothing. They are true to Mohammad of the 7th Century using 21st Century tools largely invented by the non-believers to carry on jihad. They can find justification for their actions in their holy writs. Yet the Cape Cod Times in an editorial on May 5, 2015 wrongly referred to ISIS' "twisted and distorted view of Islam." Jihad is grounded in the ideology of Islam.
Islam is currently in one of its strongest phases of its history right now, rich in numbers of true believers and supporters and oil wealth, and capitalizing on the incredible blindness, willful denial and lack of resistance being shown by the leaders of the so-called free world.
Outspoken realists risking their lives to wake citizens of the western world from their dangerous slumber include the incredibly brave ex-Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer and Geert Wilders, to name just a few of the most prominent of a small brave handful. May their numbers increase. These courageous voices are regularly dismissed and vilified by the mainstream media and the leftists of the world, champion denialists of the Islamic threat if not in league with it.
What is the greatest threat to America and our way of life? China, Russia or Islam? One would not be wrong to say "Islam."
By the way, an ex-Muslim won the Mohammad cartoon contest grand prize. No newspaper has yet to publish it. Fear of Islam prevails. Sharia wins over the First Amendment. Should a cartoonist be murdered for this cartoon - or any cartoon?
CNN interviewed Pamela Geller, a principal sponsor of the free speech event in Texas and strongly implied that, because of the risk of murderous violence by Islamic jihadists, the event should not have been held. In other words, accept Islamic Sharia's limits on the First Amendment or be killed. It got quite contentious.
An important distinction that seems lost on the CNN interviewer: Islam is an ideology and not all Muslims follow Islam jihadism as originally conceived and practiced by Mohammad. Of the world's 1.4 billion Muslims it is probable that far, far less than a majority are jihadists. While Turkey's president Endogen insists that "Islam is Islam" and there is no such thing as "moderate Islam," there are indeed "moderate Muslims" who are undoubtedly a majority of all Muslims.
Megyn Kelly on Fox News' Kelly File interviewed the other principal sponsor of the free speech event Robert Spenser.
