Islam — Silence, Please

May 3rd, 2013 - 12:26 am

The United States is not yet so bad as France where, a few years back, Muslim thugs burning cars all over their country were called simply nameless “youths” (les jeunes), as in “boys will be boys,” making all their mayhem just a — perhaps oversized — version of fraternity hijinks.

But we are getting there.

Here our political and media leaders take a more psychoanalytic tack, defining those who do violence to us as unfortunate neurotics unable to fit in — misunderstood failures ill-equipped to adapt to our fast-paced, licentious lifestyle.

So they are.

And so was (Godwin’s law alert) Hitler.  Hitler was a failed painter.  Tamerlan Tarnaev was a failed boxer.   No wonder they sought vengeance on a heartless world, poor devils.

The problem with this psycho-drivel is that practically every human being is a failed something or other.  I know I am.  And I don’t know anybody who isn’t.

Forget Hitler.  If we all acted out on our failure only on the level of Tarnaev, civilization wouldn’t even last a day.

The real question should really be what most compels violence among the almost unlimited number of neurotic individuals in the world with some grievance or other.

In our time it is unquestionably Islam, exponentially more than anything else. It’s almost as if that religion were designed in its ideology to attract the disaffected and turn them into violent animals.

Yeah, its that radical 98% of Islam that gives the other 2% a bad name.

“Muhammad's Companions are the best in war.”
- Ishaq 472

The two principal reasons for willful ignorance about Islam (and Moslems):

1) Islam enjoys the reserve status of being considered a religion. This despite its undeniable and self-defined status of at the same time also incorporating government (Sharia) and military (Jihad), and
2) Personal fear of having one’s career ruined, and being maimed or killed (Pim Fortuyn, Theo van Gogh, Hirsi Ali, the girl in Seattle, South Park creators Matt & Trey, et al).

Look, let's face it.

Radical Islam is the Ku Klux Klan of major religions. It is a supremacy argument that they make and it is through violence that they intend to intimidate those they oppose.

Western leftists are so dishonest and predictable, they immediately try to whitewash "motive" away, blameshifting it back onto Western society. When the FACTS get in the way (how do they explain away terrorizing Buddhists and Hindus?), they simply erase them and shove them down the memory hole.

It is perfectly fine with our"revolutionaries" for the Islamic Klan to hate Jews and Christians. After all, Western leftists have no use for Bible followers themselves.

It is even MORE ok for them to hate America and Israel. These are "chickens coming home to roost"....because Western leftists hate America and Israel.

So, this administration...which is filled to the gills with the lovers of "the revolution", will find every excuse to whitewash, scrub, erase, water down, excuse and alibi radical terrorism. UNLESS...it stems from the right. THEN...and only then...will they condemn it.

Period. End of report.

There's an example of left wing madness going on in Boston regarding the final resting place of the oldest Tsarnaev brother. Boston's population is about as uniformly liberal as you can find anywhere in the country and yet rioting citizens are preventing the burial of the body and shouting "Terrorist!" Isn't this like closing the barn door after the horse has run away? Why weren't these same people concerned about their state giving shelter and support to all sorts of people from who knows where? The words logic and liberal simply cannot be used together.

Liberals are like Tamerlan Tsarnaev's wife, Katherine Russell. Women are drawn to opinionated, decisive men. Even if these men are incredible jerks and losers. Katherine Russel is a blue blood chick who likes bad boys. Her father is a doctor, but she worked 60 a week cleaning bedpans to support this bum. Liberals are similar to women who like bad boys. They are drawn to criminals and ne'er-do-wells on food stamps. They favored Sadaam Hussein over George Bush. By the way any MMA guy could have taken Tamerlin out in less thatn 30 seconds. Boxing is in decline.

ACTION
Dear kindly Judge, your Honor,
My parents treat me rough.
With all their marijuana,
They won't give me a puff.
They didn't wanna have me,
But somehow I was had.
Leapin' lizards! That's why I'm so bad!

DIESEL: (As Judge) Right!

Officer Krupke, you're really a square;
This boy don't need a judge, he needs an analyst's care!
It's just his neurosis that oughta be curbed.
He's psychologic'ly disturbed!

ACTION
I'm disturbed!

JETS
We're disturbed, we're disturbed,
We're the most disturbed,
Like we're psychologic'ly disturbed.

Roger, they *are* little children. Angry, malevolent, spiteful when thwarted and not quite in control of their emotions.

Allston: This analogy could also be applied to the left wing of the Democrat party.

"Humor him. He's crazy." It seems we are doing that with Islam, afraid that the crazy man might have a fit and do something dangerous and scary.

I gotta hankerin' fer far pastures and a new Prez; one who won't cackle as he imports every stupe between Nogales and Tierra del Fuego.

Note to Dems: "1984" is not a nation-repair manual. Orwell was too clever by half. He shoulda named the damn thing "How To Destroy Western Civilization." That beating around the bush isn't working out too well.

I recall hearing tale of one man who was known for going around muttering, “Millions for defense, not one penny for tribute”.

We could use more like that.
