From The Troglopundit:

As a Tea Partier, I fully support the right of black Americans to defend themselves against racist lynch mobs.

More background from The Blaze:

Rep. Carson’s Camp Doubles Down After Blaze Exposes ‘Hanging on a Tree’ Tirade

As a fellow TEA Partier, I stand with Trog, even if the news of those lynch mobs roaming the streets has been a tad slow to hit the news outlets. I wonder where the lynchings the Representative refers to are taking place? Oh wait, has he been to Mexico lately? Or perhaps it was the middle east. Easy enough to confuse one with the other, except for the fact that, y’know, there are no TEA Parties in those countries.

Perhaps there should be.

 

Robo-log: Wednesday 8-24-11

So, here I am with a pulled or torn Achilles tendon, lying in bed with an ice pack under the heel. Yea, I know, I should get it examined to be sure no other damage has occurred. Maybe I’ll go tomorrow, if it doesn’t improve today.

But, that’s not the reason for this post. This post is about the next election and how the TEA Party is being vilified by the media. I know, you’re saying to your monitor right now “bot, you don’t watch the liberal media, how could you know they are painting the TEA Party as wanting to take away grandma’s Social Security payments and Medicare?” Well, I’ll tell you; because a close family member watches the MSM and soaks up every helpful, hateful word. He then decides to share that information with me in the form of useful tidbits of knowledge sprinkled into our casual conversations.

“How did you hurt your foot?” He asks.

“I have no idea. I woke up, got out of bed Sunday morning and as soon as I hit the floor it started barking at me. By the time I went to bed yesterday evening, I couldn’t put any weight on it at all without excruciating pain.”  I replied. “Last night, I was hopping around the house on my one good foot. I figure that was an accident waiting to happen.”

‘Have you made a doctor’s appointment?”

“Not yet, I figured I’d better get some crutches before I tried to go anywhere.”

“Well, here they are. I hurt my leg a while back and the boss on the job told the company I hurt it at work so the government would pay for them.”

“Thanks, I appreciate the loan. They’re going to be a big help. How have you and the Missus been getting along since you both retired?” I asked.

“Doing good, trying to survive on our Social Security and pensions. That’s all going away if the TEA Party gets their way.” He added, helpfully.

Nice. He’s furnishing me with a means of locomotion and now, armed with the knowledge of their illicit procurement, I feel mildly guilty for using them. Adding to the ironic, hypocritical, monologue he takes the opportunity to share the latest MSM talking points: The ludicrous idea that the TEA Party want to take away his Social Security payments. I just looked at him, knowing better than to engage. No point in arguing with a liberal, much less a family member who’s trying to help me out in a bad situation. Besides, I know he’s trying to goad me into an argument and I’m in no mood to play. He is, unfortunately, just another blind, lemming Democrat. (Was that redundant?)

I share this story not to complain of a strained tendon, or of a semi-strained family relationship. I tell you this story to let you know what kind of mindset we are up against. It’s a mindset born of Generational Training. It’s a thought process devoid of thought, that still believes every drooling word from mongrel lap dogs like Chris Mathews or Maxine Waters or from Obama himself. They are the true mind-numbed robots, all too willing to believe the lies and exaggerations, regurgitated and beak-fed to them, the liberal Children of Government, unable, in their minds, to fend for themselves and utterly convinced the TEA Party wants your aged parents or grandmother homeless, without health care and barely subsisting on a diet of Alpo and crackers.

BALDERDASH!

The TEA Party is about less government, namely, less Federal Government in our lives. We don’t want to take your Social Security. The government already stole it from you without your permission or consent and, unreported by the likes of the MSM, we think you deserve to get it back, as promised. Nor do we think the poor, or disadvantaged should be forgotten. We just disagree in principle on the definitions of poor and disadvantaged. We don’t believe people on food stamps and welfare should be driving around in cars more expensive than the citizens’ that paid for them or living in houses furnished with big screen televisions and broad band internet. Those are luxury items and should be reserved for the people WHO WORK FOR THEM!

My relative has yet to realize his party left him long ago.

The TEA Party is the working class!

The TEA Party is Middle America, trying to salvage what is left of our country before it is torn apart from the inside by a wanna-be two-bit dictator and his commie cohorts.

We’re tired of politicians buying votes with our stolen money in the name of some fictitious war on poverty while they do nothing more than increase the entitlement mentality and lining their pockets with the excess.

We also think that countless illegal immigrants should not have their hands in that cookie jar either, a jar they only take from and have never contributed to.

We are tired of bailouts and corporate takeovers, of crony capitalism, of commies in congress and socialistic presidents and class warfare and of being told to shut up.

I will never shut up. You can pry this keyboard from my cold dead fingers because even though some of those zombie liberals know not what they do, they need the opportunity to learn.

Now, where’s the ice –

and the Jim Beam?

Why the Beam, you ask?

Well, aside from the obvious need for pain killing, medicinal purposes, today, 8/25/11, marks the second year anniversary of Robo-blogging. ~ Cheers!

Here it comes…

Obama will soon double quadruple down on his failing socialist agenda. (Failing being a very relative term in this case.)

The talking heads on the left (read: Progressive/Marxist) are busy trying to paint themselves as centrist and objective while whining that their president has abandoned them. Or something. All to get the liberal base all wee-wee’d up to clamor for more spending and taxing and speeches about spending and taxing, which is what they do so well.

Our mighty mighty Photoshopâ„¢ friend Curmudgeon, over at Political Clown Parade has outdone their-self with a creepy Obama devil/alien/socialist/loser pic in answer to answer one Peggy Noonan quip.

Smitty takes time from tending his handsome newborn son to pen a few notes on the issue.

Dan Collins over at The Conservatory posted a reply to Mzzz. Noonan as well.

And Newsbusters’ Brent Baker catches three talking points being floated around the talk shows today.

What does it mean?

Classic democrat play book. The talking heads will pretend to be surprised that Obama has “moved too far to the right” when he has done no such thing; all the while painting the only adults in the room (read: TEA Party Conservatives and Libertarians) as the ones who are out of their minds for *gasp* addressing the true problems of over-spending and a government that is growing too big too fast which, in case you haven’t noticed, is the REAL crisis.

The Democrats/Progressives/Commies and RINO’s are deathly afraid that we will take away their credit cards, as well they should be because that would decrease their ability to buy more votes with your hard earned cash. So keep on fighting, calling your congress-critters and faxing the faxes because it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings. The problem is, they would want you to believe that you’ve gained a little ground when you’ve actually been backed into another corner.

Don’t fall for it.

To quote a good friend of mine: WOLVERINES!

UPDATE: Joy McCann also posted on this yesterday at The Conservatory. Thanks for the heads-up, LMA!

A few days ago, I posted a video of CEO Steve Wynn railing on the Obama administration for their socialist, anti-capitalist policies. One commenter expressed his disappointment that Mr. Wynn didn’t give any examples of how Obama’s policies are contributing to and causing the continued economic decline.

Lucky for us, iainswife, who blogs over at Shout First, Ask Questions Later and is a contributor to the fabulous Potluck blog points us to a great article in the American Spectator that provides many facts to back up Mr. Wynn’s conference call assessment of President Obama’s socialist policies.

As to what I described in the comment thread as “uncertainty,” my good friend The CL from The Classic Liberal helpfully pointed me to Robert Higgs, who, in 1997 wrote a paper coining the term “Regime Uncertainty” to describe how the socialist policies of the New Deal had a chilling effect on the recovery from the Great Depression. Those similar policies, now employed and expanded by Obama, are having the same predictably disastrous effect today.

Hopefully these links will get you on the path to understanding the effects of an over-expanding federal government, the  incremental destruction of property rights that go along with larger government, the intended transformation of our capitalist economic system to a socialist one and ultimately, an understanding of the loss of liberty for the whole of any nation that implements socialistic policies and programs.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock, p. 292.

Our Constitution was not instituted to save us from ourselves. Our Constitution was written, mainly, to protect us from our government. It’s time we remembered that and elect people who understand it as well. The alternative is not one worth savoring.

Our president thinks he’s a hypnotist, and why wouldn’t he? He obviously put half the population under some kind of spell to convince them to vote for him. How else was he able to get all those folks to cast aside the glaringly obvious truth of his hatred for America and stated desire to change it into a communistic style of government?

Every other word he utters is a contradiction of the one before or a set-up for the lie to come after. Who in their right mind can listen to absolutely preposterous, convoluted notions like “job-killing tax cuts” and come away with the assurance that the man has our best interest at heart? Those are the words spoken by a person who knows he is doing wrong and will boldly beat you over the head with the fact that he’s doing it. He thinks he’s the guy that can sell igloos to Eskimos or the Brooklyn Bridge to a New Yorker.

He also wants US to believe that 80% of us want to pay more taxes but we aren’t buying, Mister President. A growing majority of US knows you for the charlatan you are.

Barack Hussein Obama is the epitome of everything the Democratic Party and the Progressive/Communist/Socialist elite have been striving for since Woodrow Wilson occupied the office Obama continues to disgrace. Compare Marxist ideology to the modern Democrat Party ideals and you will find similarities too numerous to ignore.

Barack Hussein Obama is not your typical tax and spend democrat either. He’s much, much worse on an exponential scale. He’s a T & S D on steroids with nefarious ulterior motives who has the cooperation of a compliant media and a plethora of crony politicians eager to give him more power.

I’ve said before, and I think it becomes more apparent every day, Barack Hussein Obama is committing treason against the USA by using American social programs against the very economic engine that made those programs possible in the first place; all in order to overwhelm the system with ever increasing demands and thereby collapsing the economy and ushering in a new type of government. This method was conceived by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven and is known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Its stated goal is to achieve political and social change through orchestrated crisis. It is out and out economic warfare and is especially dangerous when combined with the Communist/Socialist agenda exposed by Iowa Rep. Curtis Bowers. It is an evil that strikes directly at the heart of natural law, liberty and America as envisioned by our founding fathers and must be passionately opposed wherever it is discovered.

For Liberty, ‘bot.

Don’t you think with Obama’s economy, those new job seekers are going to need all the help they can get? Aren’t there more important issues for a federal judge to be concerned with?

Apparently not.

Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery’s order against the Medina Valley Independent School District also forbids students from using specific religious words including “prayer” and “amen.”

Peter Morrison is fired up about it in his latest report:

Just last week, a federal tyrant threatened the Texas Senate with grounding all flights in Texas if the anti-groping bill was passed. Yesterday another federal tyrant, an unelected appointed-for-life federal judge named Fred Biery, banned any and all prayer at the Medina Valley ISD graduation ceremonies.

He went as far as to order students and administration that they could not use words like “prayer,” or “bow their heads,” or “amen” upon penalty of jail time for contempt of court.

Folks, it doesn’t get any more outrageous than this. There’s only one real solution: civil disobedience by students at the Medina Valley ISD graduation, followed by interposition and nullification of the judge’s order by the governor. The sovereign state should interpose itself between the tyrant and its citizens to prevent abuses of the Constitution, and nullify this judge’s unconstitutional order. It’s the only solution that preserves the students’ rights in time for their graduation.

Rick Perry talks a good talk about protecting state’s rights. This is where the rubber meets the road. Governor Perry should order state troopers and other law enforcement personnel to protect the administration and students of Medina Valley ISD from arrest. Furthermore, this federal judge ought to be tried for unlawful assaults and threats. If I illegally threatened to kidnap and jail someone for praying in public, that would be a crime, and it’s the same crime even if it’s done by an unelected tyrant in a black robe.

Take action:

Please send a fax to Governor Perry asking him to use every resource of the state to protect these students’ civil rights:

You know, last time I checked, the First Amendment provides us with freedom of religion, to worship in the manner of our choosing, not freedom from religion. No one in the graduation audience will be forced to pray. I promise. If you don’t want to, then don’t. Go get a beverage or a souvenir. Or you could just stand there and politely keep your yap shut for a moment. The Muslim terrorists in Gitmo have more religious freedom than those on the left would allow our students.

They don’t hate any God. The left hates the Christian God.

Beck’s Explosive Video Vindication: Socialist Explain How They Worked With Muslim Brotherhood & Islamic Extremists In The Mid East Revolutions To Unite Arab World Against USA, Britain & Israel

A few days after the post ‘Defining “American”‘ I received a comment from Kristen informing me of her decision to respond to the article as a project for her college English Argument class, and asking if I would be interested in reading her paper when finished. Since she was very polite, I responded in the affirmative, with the caveat that if she did indeed send the paper to me, I might publish some, all or none of the rebuttal. After much hand wringing on the issue, I have decided to publish her entire argument. I think anyone who has children in public school or college needs to know what they are being taught. And I think Kristen proves my point that far too many people have forgotten what it truly means to be American, even if she didn’t intend to.

If you haven’t already read it, you may wish to read my original piece, here. I’ll offer some thoughts after Kristen has her say.

Response to Defining American

Medicare is currently doing its job now without being excessive, according to the chart you provide. Social Security was one of the many programs passed as part of the New Deal in 1935. (Kelly) It was successful in getting America back to economic prosperity whether you consider it socialist or not and that is why it is still around today. So why, all of the sudden, in the near future would it be predicted that we would be sending so much more on Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid. Medicare has been around since 1965 and government health insurance has been around much longer than that. In the early 1900s states began to collect taxes to be used as insurance premiums from workers and employers. The reason this did not work was because individual states did not want to implement extra taxes that may put the business in their states at a disadvantage during the Great Depression. (Corning)

“One of the duties of the State is that of caring for those of its citizens who find themselves the victims of such adverse circumstances as makes them unable to obtain even the necessities for mere existence without the aid of others. That responsibility is recognized by every civilized nation. . . . To these unfortunate citizens aid must be extended by Government–not as a matter of charity but as a matter of social duty. (Corning) In my opinion that is part of what it means to be American, to not only keep up with the other civilized first world nations but to surpass them with our new ideas and high standards. Being American is about being able to have different opinions.

Saying that more people are against America as it was founded than slavery is a contradiction. America was founded on great principals but those principals often did not translate into reality. In theory it sounds good; America was founded on the principal of escaping oppression on the basis of religious persecution. But ironically early America, as it was founded, was a very oppressive place. It was oppressive to women, poor people, and anyone who was not white. The American voting system was designed to prevent majority tyranny but how can that work if the oppressed minority cannot vote to begin with? This method of preventing majority tyranny did not work then and it continues to fail today. (Garlikov) Even when the minority on any number of issues can vote they continue to be outnumbered and oppressed by the majority. This is why progress is slow but of course progress will come, as it always has, with America leading the way. I am a strong believer in Democracy because I believe that most people want to do things that are good and right. While we may agree on what those things may be we still have the same goal and we both want what is best for America. I know that progress takes a long time, like civil rights and women’s rights. I feel bad that those things could not have happened sooner but it came when the people were ready for it and I understand that only when a value is generally held by a society that it can work as a part of law. To me that is what it means to be American: paving the road to progress.

You say that Obama is redistributing the wealth but you are failing to mention that our previous president, George W. Bush, was guilty of exactly what you are accusing Obama of. We all know that the higher your income is the higher your taxes are, but Bush made special exceptions. A Congressional study said that families earning more than $1 million a year saw their federal tax rates drop more sharply than any group in the country as a result of President Bush’s tax cuts and that tax rates for middle-income earners edged up. (Andrews) Bush may have lowered taxes for everyone but the people who got the biggest tax breaks were in the top one percent income earners in the United States. He added tax cuts on investment income and on estates specifically to benefit the richest households. Just one decade of those tax cuts would cost a trillion dollars. (Andrews) And the people to pick up the tab for the money lost during the Bush administration will be my generation and maybe yours since I do not know how old you are. The bottom forty percent of income earners get money back from the government and pay what is considered negative taxes so they were not affected by the Bush tax cuts. (Andrews) Obama extended the Bush tax cuts to individuals making less than $200,000 per year and families making less than $250,000 per year. In 2010 Obama gave businesses a $5,000 tax credit for each new employee they added. (Khan, Jaffe)

In your blog you say The true definition of being an American has been diluted by diversity and diffused by political correctness. I believe that this statement reflects the opposite of the definition of American. America has always been a nation of immigrants. America is perhaps the most diverse nation in the world. Having a diverse mix of ethnicities, cultures, and opinions and being able to live with and accept it makes America great. I agree that political correctness is not always a good thing in certain specific situation when it does not reflect truth. We should be able to talk about and address all types of stereotypes, perhaps then we can overcome our differences.  In the words of Barack Obama “The anger is real, it is powerful, and to simply wish it away, to condemn it without understanding its roots, only serves to widen the chasm of misunderstanding that exists between the races.” (Obama Tackles Race Divide in Major Speech)

I agree with you that many people unrightfully have an entitlement mindset. These people tend to think “what can my country do for me and are ungrateful what for what we provide to them with our tax dollars. But we cannot let these people affect the way we think of everyone who receives welfare nor should they be able to ruin the system for everyone. You say that … the America we thought we knew is teetering on the precipice of a debt cliff caused by overspending on unearned entitlements. But it is estimated that only about four percent of the United States budget is being spent on welfare. (How Much Does the Nation Spend on Welfare? – Public Aid, State Expenditures For Social Welfare, Private Welfare Expenditures, Welfare-reform Legislation) Entitlement programs like Medicare and Social security are paid into by the public when they pay taxes, that is why they are entitled to them. Of course we all get the same benefits without paying the same amount of taxes. You may call that Socialism and in a way perhaps it is but I still do not believe it would be morally right to let the poorest people do without these programs, as they are the ones who need them most.

You talk a lot about what you call generational training which you describe as an inherent flaw with each younger generation that causes selfishness. I completely disagree. Selfish, greedy people have always existed and always will. My young generation of new voters has plenty of pride and work ethic. In fact it is the older generation that takes the most from government if you include the entitlement programs Social Security and Medicare, which take up over thirty percent of the United States federal budget. (Nullification: Are State Level Officials Really Opposed to Federal Encroachment?) But I understand that they need those things and have the right to them. I sympathize with them knowing that I will probably be old one day too and I hope that when that day comes the programs I am entitled to are there to help me after I have paid into them my entire life.
As much as our opinions on these issues may differ I believe that, like I said before, we share a common interest: to make America better. I can see that you have strong opinions, as do I, and that is a good thing. Our passion and enthusiasm about politics and America is something we have in common. And because this is America we both can freely express our opinions, which I think is wonderful.

-Kristen

Here is my reply, slightly abbreviated, as I feel my actual rebuttal lies in most of the posts already on my blog and those of many other conservatives.

Kristen,

I’m glad you chose my piece as the opposing view for your article and I hope you continue your search for what it means to be an American. It is one of the most important questions you will ever ask of yourself or your fellow Americans.

You mentioned in your accompanying email message that you didn’t want to start a debate but I cannot let these arguments go unchallenged. It is clear to me that you are concerned for the well being of your fellow Americans and that is admirable. It is also painfully clear that you’ve bought into the whole “victim mentality” that permeates much of our country and serves only to reinforce the entitlement culture. While you say we agree on the fact that some entitlements are unearned, you don’t propose any steps to alleviate the problem. In fact, you mention it once and proceed to gloss over it.

I could go through Kristen’s piece line by line, but I’ll just do the first. It exemplifies the rest.

Medicare is currently doing its job now without being excessive, according to the chart you provide.

Did you ignore the chart after 2011? Didn’t you see the projected outlay of money to social programs which, if left unchecked, will bankrupt the nation? Not being excessive? Really? We are currently living on borrowed money to enable these programs. The interest on that debt is a huge contributor to the projected debt levels in the chart, not to mention when Obamacare really gets going.

You mentioned also that, according to some guy who wrote something (FDR – Corning), it is the social duty of government to take money from those who have earned it and give that money to those who have not (The bottom line of your quote.). The qualifications for that “benefit” are also to be laid out by the government doing the taking. You don’t have a problem with that? You don’t see the potential for abuse of power being actualized at this moment by the politicians buying votes with peoples’ taxed (stolen) dollars? This is why the Founders were against social programs born of the Federal Government, because the Fed. is too far removed from the people it is supposed to serve. These programs belong at the local, regional, or state level, if they come from government at all. (See Romneycare for an example of more government healthcare failure.)

It is clear to me from your arguments that restraining the powers of the Federal Government to its original “few and defined” number, has ceased to be taught in our schools. In fact, it ceased to be taught years before the New Deal. If it had been, people would have never been duped into such a ponsi scheme as Social Security or many other New Deal type programs. The New Deal was the gateway drug to government’s addiction to taking it’s citizen’s property, leading the way to ever more taxes and increases on those taxes for some other new entitlement, and now that they have set the IRS as a redistributive tool, they disguise any thievery at all in some cloak of charitable outlay while accusing the taxed of being cold-hearted, uncaring and greedy. Witness political projection at it’s finest.

Not far from where I live is a city called Port Arthur, Texas, which has a rich history in the oil exploration and refinery industry. The city has been run for decades by predominantly liberal policy. As of the latest tally the local unemployment rate stands at 16% to 17%, which is quite probably the worst in Texas. The jobs are available. High paying ones. There are many workers coming in from all over the country to fill positions the local people won’t take. Why? Entitlement Mentality. They have been trained for years by their government and culture to not take a job if it will interfere with their welfare or unemployment check, plain and simple. The unemployment rate in the state of Texas is 8%. Even if we assume that 8% of the population of Port Arthur is indigent, how do you explain the other 8%? I’ve lived here for 25 years and I can tell you that they do not want a real job, even when one is readily available. If you look at most any city or county across the nation (Detroit for example?) that has long standing leftist policies I believe you will find the vast majority to be the same. People won’t work if they are paid not to. It’s that simple. Look for yourself. Question what your professors tell you is “progress” and you will find that their version of progress only takes away a person’s will to provide for themselves. Is it any wonder that the Heritage Fundation’s 2010 Index of Dependence on Government finds

…the United States is close to the point at which half of the population will not pay taxes for government benefits they receive.

Half the population. How does that happen?

When I said “Generational Training,” I was not referring to young people being defective, as you inferred from my piece. I was referring to actual instruction, which you have obviously been receiving at the hands of the very people who wish to see you enslaved. The fact that you can veil all of your arguments into a guilt ridden projection of our countries past faults to justify more spending of money not your own is what I was referring to when I said “Generational Training.” Those types of thought patterns don’t happen automatically unless you have been so instructed.

As far as GWB goes, you won’t find me defending his over spending or any other republican for that matter. I’m no big fan of government spending no matter which side of the aisle it comes from or who argues for it. I find it funny that some people can criticize Bush for spending too much but praise Obama for spending ten times more. I don’t like either group spending our money and neither should you.

In closing, Kristen, you did a very good job of laying out the leftist talking points and guilt trips. The 16th through19th centuries were harsh times in the entire world. I’d doubt very seriously that women or blacks or any minorities were treated with the respect they receive today. But you fail to mention the fact that it was in America where those rights first began to emerge. It was Americans who abolished slavery. It was in America that women got the right to vote. It was in America where blacks got the right to vote as well. Why must we be forced to pay the price for something you and I had no part in? I don’t recall ever having owned a slave or preventing anyone a vote. Those arguments are old and tired. Can’t we just get past them to truly address the real problems of the country?

The idea of individual liberty is at the core of America and it is individual liberty that is under attack. It must always be fought for because there will always be someone wishing to take it from you, even under the guise of Social Justice or some other re-branding. Call it what you will, it is still slavery trying to raise its ugly head, and it is still wrong.

A few questions come to mind:
How’s that dhimmitude workin’ out for ya?

Tell me again what religion Obummer claims to be?

What would be the reaction from the left if we were to renovate some Christian Churches?

Thanks to Roland for the email.

They will side with anyone or anything in their quest for more control, even if it means partnering with known enemies. I mean, I know the left are all about the free love thing but c’mon, the Muslim Brotherhood? Really? Do they actually know who they’re in bed with? Do they even care? What about that whole ‘separation of church and state’ mantra they like to throw around at parties? Isn’t embracing Islam in the White House a bit of hypocrisy?

I gotta warn you though; those beer goggles can be a bit of a bummer in the morning, especially when you find out you went to bed with a ten and woke up with a two that wants to chop your head off.

I’ve said before that I believe Obama to be a muslim. He’s said so himself. It is also a known fact that islam allows and even encourages muslims to be deceitful in order to infiltrate and convert their enemies so, for him to lie to achieve his aim of the submission of America to islam is not inconsistent with his religion.

Does anyone else see a double standard here? What kind of god encourages its followers to be untruthful, for any reason? Shouldn’t a righteous god insist his followers be above reproach in everything, above all, proselytizing?

My God does.

9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

islam’s sanctioning of deceit is just another example of the false prophet mohammed and his false god allah and their false, barbaric religion of blasphemy against the one true God of Abraham.

John Quincy Adams, the sixth President of the United States, knew of islam’s barbaric nature perhaps better than we. As noted by Dave Miller, Ph.D. in his article for Apologetics Press titled “John Quincy Adams on Islam,” he states:

No Christian would deny that many Christians in history have violated the precepts of Christ by mistreating others and even committing atrocities in the name of Christ. However, Adams rightly observes that one must go against Christian doctrine to do so. Not so with Islam—since violence is sanctioned:

The fundamental doctrine of the Christian religion, is the extirpation of hatred from the human heart. It forbids the exercise of it, even towards enemies. There is no denomination of Christians, which denies or misunderstands this doctrine. All understand it alike—all acknowledge its obligations; and however imperfectly, in the purposes of Divine Providence, its efficacy has been shown in the practice of Christians, it has not been wholly inoperative upon them. Its effect has been upon the manners of nations. It has mitigated the horrors of war—it has softened the features of slavery—it has humanized the intercourse of social life. The unqualified acknowledgement of a duty does not, indeed, suffice to insure its performance. Hatred is yet a passion, but too powerful upon the hearts of Christians. Yet they cannot indulge it, except by the sacrifice of their principles, and the conscious violation of their duties. No state paper from a Christian hand, could, without trampling the precepts of its Lord and Master, have commenced by an open proclamation of hatred to any portion of the human race. The Ottoman lays it down as the foundation of his discourse (Blunt, 29:300, emp. added).

The Founders were forthright in their assessment of the nature and teachings of Islam and the Quran. Americans and their political leaders would do well to take a sober look at history. To fail to do so will be catastrophic.

So, how’s that whole dhimmitude thing workin’ out for ya?

Also, lest you think I’m being unfair and unbalanced, Zilla of the Resistance has posted an outstanding piece on the islamic infiltration of the conservative movement.

Imagine that.

My friend Teresa from Teresamerica reminded me of a story that the lefties at the NAACP refuse to admonish members of their side for the raaaaacist calls for violence against Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas at the ‘Quarantine the Koch Brothers’ rally. Isn’t the NAACP supposed to be an advocate for civil rights much like the most righteous ACLU?

Oh. Right.

Hat Tip to Michael Berry for finding the Daily Caller story.

On a side note, while I was looking for other stories to go along with this one, I did a little Bing search for “dems denounce racist threats at rally‘ which I was sure would return a bazillion hits pointing to their outrage and calls for civility but instead, returned this result:

Funny how it easily found calls from republicans calling out their own for veering out of the pasture, and dems calling the TEA Party raaaaacists. Never mind the fact that none of those accusations were ever proven. Then, I thought, why not try the ‘News’ tab:

Hmmm. That’s interesting. No news at all? No dems have ever been reported to have denounced racism at any rally? I thought they were against racism. Bing, maybe I need to spell it out for you:

Notice it included the Egyptian denouncement of something or other, and down lower right, it found an article on Rep. Moran accusing republicans of being racist.

Then, the search engine politely asked me:

Do you want results only for democrats denounce racist threats at rally?

Absolutely!

Apparently, it doesn’t happen.

To be fair, I changed ‘democrat’ to republican’ and it didn’t find anything for those search terms in the ‘news’ tab either, but when switched to the ‘Web’ tab both search sets returned a larger set of results:

I’m not trying to prove anything here. Just noticing an interesting find and tweaking the geeks who program the search engines. I mean, really? Not one ‘News’ item for those search terms? I hear it on radio and read articles on that very subject almost every day. Why does a search engine have trouble spotting them? Is there a blind spot in your ‘News’ algorithm? (Al-Gore-ithm?)

Maybe Al forgot to include that bit of code when he invented the interwebz.

I got your threats of violence right here. Where is the MSM?

*crickets*

Did these people miss a plane to Egypt?

Huge tip of the mechanical fedora to BigFurHat.
