EX-MUSLIM WINNING CARTOONIST TALKS ABOUT LEAVING ISLAM.

The winner of the free speech Draw Mohammad contest in Garland, Texas Bosch Fawstin was born a Muslim, but left it because of Islam's teachings of hate.

In accepting his award he made a few comments about growing up in a "moderate Muslim" household that are worth thinking about. It isn't just the jihad against those who do not follow Mohammad that Islam inspires and commands that's a problem. It's the poison that infects attitudes even in the homes of moderate Muslins. Listen:

Megyn Kelly and Bill O'Reilly clashed on the air on whether the contest should have been held at all. O'Reilly said it was "common sense" that some Muslims might mount a violent attack and it would be best to lay off. Kelly argued that O'Reilly was allowing Muslins to define the limits of the First Amendment. Kelly is right.

FREE SPEECH ESSENTIAL TO PREVENT IMPOSITION OF ISLAMIC SHARIA LAW IN THE UNITED STATES.

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.

THE EVIL OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, THE TOOL OF THE DEMOCRATIC ELITES

In a very short time Dr. Ben Carson has risen to national prominence as one who speaks common sense and wisdom about the most important issues of our days. After an immensely successful career as a pediatric neurological surgeon, Dr. Carson has begun a "second career" addressing the nation's ills as vigorously and capably as he acted in his medical life.

Dr. Carson is already one of those rare writers who always should be heeded -- such as Mark Steyn and Dr. Thomas Sowell.

Political correctness is a tool of the left elites of the Democratic Party and their media accomplices to shut down criticism of their propaganda as they work to empower the central government to take more and more control of our lives, denying us the liberty pledged to us in the Declaration of Independence.

Dr. Carson explains how dangerous PC is and how essential it is that people refuse to let it deny them their freedom of speech. He compared Obamacare to slavery.

[Obamacare] is beginning to wrench the nation from one centered on the rights of individual citizens to one that accepts the right of the government to control even the most essential parts of our lives. This strikes a serious blow to the concept of freedom that gave birth to this nation.

We must not let Democrats succeed.

THE INSIDIOUS EFFECTS OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
By Dr. Ben Carson
March 19, 2014

Speech taboos are meant to silence patriotic dissent

When I was in high school in Detroit, there was a great deal of emphasis on clothing. As I became increasingly interested in fitting in with the "in crowd," fashion supplanted academic achievement in my hierarchy of importance. My grades plummeted, and I became a person who was less pleasant and more self-absorbed.

My mother was disappointed because she thought I had enough insight and intelligence to avoid the flypaper trap of acting like everyone else.

Fortunately, after wasting a year pursuing acceptance, I realized that my dreams went far beyond silk shirts and sharkskin pants. I decided to forsake the "in crowd" and redoubled my academic efforts in time to rescue my sinking grade-point average and gain admission to an Ivy League university.

To say that the "in crowd" was disgruntled when I abandoned their association would be a gross understatement. It eventually became clear to them that I would not rejoin their ranks under any circumstances, and they left me alone.

Despite the insults hurled at me, at the time of graduation, my classmates voted me "most likely to succeed." This indicated that they knew the prerequisites for success but were unwilling to fulfill them, and they wanted others to remain shackled to their underachieving lifestyle.

Political correctness (PC) operates in much the same fashion. It is in place to ensure conformity to the prescribed expressions and lifestyles dictated by the elites.

There are rewards of acceptance and praise for members of the "in crowd" as they attempt to silence or destroy any who dare think for themselves or express opposing views. Similarly, the purveyors of PC seize upon a word or phrase, which they emphasize in an attempt to divert attention away from the actual issue that doesn't fit their narrative.

I have stated in the past that Obamacare is the worst thing to occur in our country since slavery. Why did I make such a strong statement? Obviously, I recognize the horrors of slavery. My roots have been traced back to Africa, and I am aware of some horrendous deeds inflicted on my ancestors in this country.

The purpose of the statement was not to minimize the most evil institution in American history, but rather to draw attention to a profound shift of power from the people to the government.

I think this shift is beginning to wrench the nation from one centered on the rights of individual citizens to one that accepts the right of the government to control even the most essential parts of our lives. This strikes a serious blow to the concept of freedom that gave birth to this nation.

Some well-known radicals have publicly written and stated that in order for their idea of a utopian, egalitarian society to emerge in the United States, the government must control health care, which ensures the dependency of the populace on government. Historical analysis of many countries that have gone this route demonstrates the obliteration of the middle class and a massive expansion of the poor, dependent class with a relatively small number of elites in control.

This is sobering information, and those who want to fundamentally change America would much rather demonize someone who is exposing this agenda than engage in a conversation that they cannot win. Others join in the fray, happily marching in lockstep with those who are attempting to convert our nation to something we won't recognize, having no idea that they are being used.

Vladimir Lenin is sometimes credited with coining the phrase "useful idiots" to describe such individuals.

It is time in America for the people to open their eyes to what is happening all around them as our nation undergoes radical changes without so much as a conversation out of fear of being called a name, of facing economically adverse actions or of enduring government harassment, characterized by the perpetrators as "phony scandals."

Political correctness is antithetical to our founding principles of freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Its most powerful tool is intimidation.

If it is not vigorously opposed, its proponents win by default, because the victims adopt a "go along to get along" attitude. Major allies in the imposition of PC are members of the media, some of whom thrive on controversy while others are true ideologues.

The true believers would be amusing if it were not so sad to behold them dissecting, distorting and repeating words in an attempt to divert attention from the rise of government control.

The American people must learn to identify and ignore political correctness if we are to escape the bitter ideological grenades that are destroying our unity and strength. Political correctness is impotent if we the people are fearless. Let us emphasize intelligent discussion of issues and leave the smear campaigns to those with no constructive ideas.
