Islam — Silence, Please

May 3rd, 2013 - 12:26 am

A website with the politically incorrect URL of thereligionofpeace.com tracks these things.  According to them, as of May 2, 2013, there have been 20,794 deadly attacks by Islamic terrorists since September 11, 2001.  Here’s only the last three days via the same website:

Amazing, isn’t it?  Those events, all at least as murderous in head count as Boston and in most cases far more, did not make even a ripple in our media. Dog bites man, I suppose. But I guess it’s a good idea, when in Thailand, to stay clear of Buddhist convenience stores, even if you forget your mantra.

Kidding aside, what do we do about this grisly litany? What is to be done with this information?

We live in a country whose leadership, almost twelve years after 9/11, still does not name our enemy.  They will do anything but, often to the extent of comic absurdity. Too bad that nonstop uncomfortable head count dampens the levity.

The justification for this extreme bowdlerization by our leadership and mainstream media, I’m assuming, is that to name Islam — and often even radical Islam — as the culprit is to make matters worse,  to stir them up.

This attitude is actually racist.  By making Islam immune to criticism, you are treating its adherents as if they were children (mere “wogs” in the unattractive parlance of the British Empire), unable to correct or adapt their ideology and join modern civilization.  Consciously or unconsciously, you are saying they are just not up to it.

And in that case, they certainly won’t be.  Those who fail to criticize Islam are enabling it.

Something is wrong here, very wrong.  And you don’t have to read thereligionofpeace.com to know it – but stopping by once in a while is a grim reminder.

“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.
