Overcome the Leftist Pursuit of Crisis Creation


Leftist Media Lying

John R. Houk

© January 11, 2011

 

A huge tragedy happened on the American scene when Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was part of an assassination attempt that killed others including a Judge and a nine year old gal but left the Representative in critical condition. One would think the incident would form one of those rare unified moments in America as when everyone was on the same page on 9/11 (at least momentarily). Unfortunately this is not what happened.

 

Leftist talking heads and bloggers immediately blamed the Tea Party Movement and unsurprisingly Sarah Palin. Evidently Leftist hatred spurred by popular voting to remove the Democrats from power in the House and slimming down the gap of the Dem majority in the Senate, has led to a propaganda moment that Leftists could not resist.

 

Leftist propaganda strategy is to twist military and target practice terminology utilized by the Tea Party and Palin as a reason for Jared Loughner’s inability to internally resist putting into action the shooting of Rep. Giffords. After all, it is true Rep. Giffords barely retained her seat from opposing Tea Party Republican candidate Jesse Kelly which had a lot of support from Sarah Palin as well. Giffords won by a mere 2% of the vote over Kelly. Kelly was a pro-gun Iraq war veteran that probably lost because of a M16 target shooting spree. The M16 incident was projected by Leftist propaganda as the actions of a Right Wing Nut which was framed as the actual target practice of incumbent candidate Giffords. Kelly’s pro-gun humor as an election antic for supporters became fodder for anti-gun skilled polemicists of the Left. This undoubtedly cost Kelly the victory in Arizona District 8. Left Wing polemicists and an amazing amount of Center-Right polemicists hopped on the band wagon of blame, to point fingers at Kelly’s M16 event and Palin’s cross hairs scope as reasons for Loughner’s shooting spree.

 

This blood pointing toward Conservative Tea Partiers is the height of hypocrisy as if Democrats never utilize military terminology in campaign strategy. When one thinks of Leftists one should think of the failed transformative ideology of Socialist Marxism. A good Leftist idea for society is to transform it. Transformation means killing people that might not agree with Marxism or Socialism; hence the genocides of Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. (No, Hitler was not a Right Winger: NAZI stood for political National Socialism and not practicing Free Speech, Religious Freedom or Market Economies.) Apparently some Dem Party strategists (oh my, a military term) quickly thought up the Rahm Emanuel axiom of never letting a good crisis to be wasted. A “blame the Tea Party” mantra was quickly established by the Democratic Party. In campaigning, it is a truism in elections that utilize military or violent terminology is something used on both the Left and Right as symbolic metaphors. Obviously the Right will use gun metaphors because they tend to be pro-Second Amendment; however I am guessing the Left utilizes an obfuscating version of weaponry to drive a point home.

 

Here is a blip from dt:

 

You’d think the right, and the Tea Party in particular, would pause to consider that the intimations and subtle endorsements of violent revolution might be misguided. But the founder of the Tea Party, Judson Phillips, has a different idea: Blame it on the left.

 

Of the shooting, Phillips wrote, “The left is coming and will hit us hard on this. We need to push back harder with the simple truth. The shooter was a liberal lunatic. Emphasis on both words.”

 

What’s even more mindboggling than his attempt to shift blame is that Phillips—even now—persists with the metaphors of violence. In the Tea Party worldview, the left’s critique is an attack, something that warrants counter-attack—it’s all a matter of transgressing battle lines.

 

Did you catch “violent revolution”? Does anyone know the paradigm in Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist global transformation? How Right Wing is it for Judson Phillips to claim correctly that assassin Jared Loughner was a “liberal lunatic”? I mean the young killer idolized Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto! The Left has attempted to paint a picture of Loughner as a Right Winger by placing Hitler and Marx in as an afterthought. If there is any Right Wing in Loughner it is of the fringe kind. For the Left all people on the Right are near to Skin Heads and for the violent overthrow of American by Militias. Dear God in Heaven a former High School acquaintance said of Loughner: “As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal and oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy”. Loughner is indeed a Leftist loon.

 

Leftist Michael J.W. Stickings writes:

 

Perhaps this will be a turning point, a tipping point. Perhaps now the media and others will start paying attention to the rhetoric of violence that animates American conservatism today. You don’t have to go far to find it. Just listen to the Tea Party, to Beck, to Palin. They need to be held accountable.

 

I wonder if America’s Leftists should wish quid pro quo accountability for deceiving Americans into voting for Presidential candidate that has this list of American haters some of which call for the overthrow of America:

 

Bill Ayers

 

“We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, seize power and build the new society.”

 

The quotes above were scanned directly from a now long-forgotten book entitled Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism, which was written and published in 1974 by William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and other members of the Weather Underground. In this slim volume, which functioned as the Weather Underground’s ideological manifesto, Ayers declares himself to be a communist, and announces that his group’s bombing campaign was intended to start a violent revolution to overthrow the American government.

 

Saul Alinsky

 

In the Alinsky model, “organizing” is a euphemism for “revolution” – a wholesale revolution whose ultimate objective is the systematic acquisition of power by a purportedly oppressed segment of the population, and the radical transformation of America’s social and economic structure. The goal is to foment enough public discontent, moral confusion, and outright chaos to spark the social upheaval that Marx, Engels and Lenin predicted – a revolution whose foot soldiers view the status quo as fatally flawed and wholly unworthy of salvation. Thus, the theory goes, the people will settle for nothing less than the status quo’s complete collapse – to be followed by the erection of an entirely new system upon its ruins. Toward that end, they will be apt to follow the lead of charismatic radical organizers who project an aura of confidence and vision, and who profess to clearly what types of societal “changes” are needed.

 

Jeremiah Wright

 

This view is entirely consistent with Rev. Wright’s devotion to the tenets of liberation theology, which is essentially Marxism dressed up as Christianity. Devised by Cold War-era theologians, it teaches that the gospels of Jesus can be understood only as calls for social activism, class struggle, and revolution aimed at overturning the existing capitalist order and installing, in its stead, a socialist utopia where today’s poor will unseat their “oppressors” and become liberated from their material (and, consequently, their spiritual) deprivations. An extension of this paradigm is black liberation theology, which seeks to foment a similar Marxist revolutionary fervor founded on racial rather than class solidarity. Wright’s mentor in this discipline is James Cone, author of the landmark text Black Power and Black Theology. Arguing that Christianity has been used by white society as an opiate of the (black) masses, Cone asserts that the destitute “are made and kept poor by the rich and powerful few,” and that “[n]o one can be a follower of Jesus Christ without a political commitment that expresses one’s solidarity with victims.”

 

Louis Farrakhan

 

 

According to Schlussel, “… a former Obama insider says that Obama’s sudden aversion to NOI and Farrakhan is belied by the fact that Obama employed and continues to employ several Farrakhan acolytes in high positions on his Illinois and U.S. Senate campaign and office staffs.”

 

One of those NOI members is Cynthia K. Miller, who served as Treasurer of his Senate campaign. Another NOI member is Jennifer Mason who currently serves as Obama’s Director of Constituent Services and who oversees the hiring of interns for Obama.

 

 

Sen. Obama’s pastor, Dr. Jeremiah Wright has been in the news recently over his anti-Israel statements and his recent awarding of a lifetime achievement award to his friend, Louis Farrakhan. The racist head of the Nation of Islam has referred to Judaism as a “gutter religion” and said that whites are only “potential” humans.

 

Father Michael Pfleger

 

Pfleger’s views on race were shaped, in large measure, by black radicalism in the 1960s. “I got very educated by the [Black] Panthers — very educated,” Pfleger once told Trumpet magazine, a publication of Rev. Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ.

Pfleger is also a great admirer of Louis Farrakhan: “I’ve known the minister [Farrakhan] both as someone who I have great respect for as a prophetic voice, as a mentor but also as a friend and as a brother,” said Pfleger.

 

More on Pfleger from Michelle Malkin:

 

Pfleger (who is white) grabbed the spotlight during the 2008 presidential campaign with jive-talking defenses of his fellow race-hustler and President Obama’s spiritual mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah “‘God Damn America!’ and ‘AmeriKKKa!’” Wright, and Jew-bashing hate-monger Louis “Judaism Is a ‘Gutter Religion’” Farrakhan. The racial-justice award winner called the latter a “great man” and welcomed him to his church.

 

There are more Obamanites that want to transform America away from the land of the free and home of the brave and who desire the pursuit of happiness, but I think you get the point. The kind of change these fellows want would stir a chaos in America that would lead to innumerable deaths of Americans. Where was the outrage of Leftist pundits, politicians and cowardly establishment Conservatives in 2008?

 

My God! Just think if Rep. Giffords was a Black-American or a Hispanic-American? Not only would the Tea Party Movement and Sarah Palin be blamed for the murder of six and attempted assassination of Giffords, the entire Conservative Movement from fiscal, 2nd Amendment, 10th Amendment and social Conservatives would be labeled as the promulgators of violence; ergo all things that are Conservative values must be suppressed to continue the Leftist vision of a Living Constitution that evolves with the temperament of the environment of NOW. Whatever that Leftist “NOW” is.

 

My fellow Conservatives here is a militant euphemism for you: Rise up and out-shout the Leftist propagandists to show that most American prefer Judeo-Christian Conservative values over the Leftist pursuit to never let a good crisis go to waste.

Coulter Whips up a Leftist Frenzy in Canada


Ann Coulter 3-22-10 U of W. Ontario

On March 22 Ann Coulter was at a Q & A at London, Ontario, Canada. There was a question by a Muslim gal full of sarcasm to the Queen of political sarcasm. If you have seen a clip of this incident it is probable you have seen the Leftist media version that is edited to make Coulter look like a petty hate-speech bully. Which by the way I still found amusing: Laden with sarcasm the Muslim gal was upset with the Coulter no-mincing of words that Muslims should take a flying carpet so flying would be safe again (yes, it is a rough paraphrase of the Coulter position). The Muslim gal asked a question something like this: “I don’t have a flying carpet so how is a Muslim girl to travel?” (Another rough paraphrase) Coulter responded: “Take a camel.”

 

O boy did the Leftist (and undoubtedly Muslims) heads and Mainstream Media explode with indignant hypocrisy. Her next speaking engagement was supposed to be at the University of Ottawa. It was cancelled because 2000 Leftist and/or Muslim students spurred on by open letter from the University Provost and undoubtedly the tit-for-tat “Take a camel” comment the day before. The 2000 chanted physical harm slogans over Coulter followed up by striking fear in the local police that riot was imminent.

 

Appropriately Coulter wrote a scathing column on March 24 taking her sights on the University of Ottawa Provost Francois A. Houle. I like Coulter because she does not back down from Leftists. Read her Column.

The Gramsci Influence on Alinsky


Antonio Gramsci

Who Influenced BHO

John R. Houk

© March 25, 2010

 

Most Conservatives acknowledge that President Barack Hussein Obama is a Leftist. Some reduce the term of “Leftist” to Socialist. Some others reduce BHO’s ideology down to Marxism itself. Most Democrats would be offended to be labeled a Marxist or a Communist. Marxist theory has proven itself to be a bloody and failed ideology that was decimated by Capitalist economics and the success of a few high profile individuals such as President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II. Thus Leninist/Stalinist Soviet hegemony came crashing down freeing Russia and Soviet satellite nations to choose or discover a less repressive path for the public good. (It may be debatable pertaining  to Russia’s future since old Communists have transformed themselves to nationalist Russian pride individuals who may return Russians to the only form of government they have known most of their history – despotism.)

 

BHO has had many radical influences on his life. The influence of Saul Alinsky seems to be the path BHO has chosen to attain the Office of President of the United States of America. Alinsky seems to have been influenced by what I would call the father of Eurocommunism – Antonio Gramsci.

 

From my brief catch-up reading on Gramsci it appears there is a bit of controversy about how much he actually contributed to Eurocommunist thought as mostly espoused by the Italian Communist Party (PCI). Nonetheless, undoubtedly the interpretation of Gramsci utilizing democratic institutions to transform a culture in order for Marxist theory to become nationally dominant and hegemonic is the thoughts that Alinsky latched onto.

 

Take a gander at Gramsci’s concept of hegemony.

Liberal Journalists – BHO – Attack FOX News


FNC-Yes MSM-No

The mainstream media (MSM) and the Obama Administration are so absolutely Slanted Left (so MSM and definitely the President are more Left than slanted). Because of this fact I became a little irritated that President Barack Hussein Obama has been vilifying FOX News as a tool of the Republican’s Right Wing. The President has even tried to box FOX out of White House press meetings because of this public stand against FOX.

 

Now it is also evident that the Obama’s cadre MSM is becoming a tool of Obama’s Leftism by using the power of the press to also vilify FOX News as so far to the Right that they are not a legitimate unbiased journalistic media outlet.

 

Ironically FOX News often receives criticism from the more Slanted Right for not being Right enough. I personally am a huge supporter of FOX yet I also am unpleased sometimes with a position or lack of reporting on an issue. Even so I will not vilify the only media outlet that counters the obvious Leftism of the MSM.

 

Ron Radosh has written an excellent piece of the vile hypocrisy of Leftist MSM. Take a gander at it!

Interesting, Covert CIA Agents’ Cover Outed


Anti-Christian Lawyers Union logo

But NO Outcry to Prosecute the Scoundrels

John R. Houk

© August 29, 2009

 

Here is an alert from ACT! For America concerning the hypocrisy of the Left toward America’s National Security.

 

The ACLU took clandestine photos of covert CIA agents involved with extracting information from Gitmo Islamic terrorists. The Washington Post reported on the now public photos. It is interesting there are no cries to prosecute the ACLU for endangering the identities of covert CIA agents.

 

Let’s preface this alert with a little memory lane.

 

First there is the Plamegate scandal in which the Left was calling for Presidential impeachment and/or the clearing of the unpopular Bush Administration staffers. The Left MSM accused a leak coming directly from the White House divulging that Valerie Plame the wife of State Department hack Joe Wilson worked for the CIA.

 

Can you remember the LEFTIST OMG that the Bush Administration would leak information about the existence of a “covert” CIA operative out of vengeance for Joe Wilson’s hack report about Niger yellow cake and Saddam Hussein?

 

There was even screaming for a Special Prosecutor. That turned out to be Leftist bloodhound Patrick Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald went after everyone until he latched onto the rumor that Vice President Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff Scooter Libby allegedly divulged Plame’s information to the public.

 

After millions of dollars of taxpayer money Fitzgerald came up with bupkis. Evidently Fitzgerald needed some kind of justification for his license to the Leftist bidding of disrupting the Bush Administration.

 

So Fitzgerald’s million dollar staff poured over the ‘under oath’ statements provided to the Special Persecutor.

 

There was STILL no smoking gun linking anyone in the Bush/Cheney staff to outing not really so-covert Valerie Plame. Who knows how many times the statements taken received scouring until a new strategy to persecute someone among the Bush/Cheney staff?

 

Here is the confirmation that Fitzgerald ALREADY KNEW who released Plame’s name to the press? It was an anti-Bush Republican then working in the Defense Department, specifically Richard Armitage.

 

I guess it was not worth going after an anti-Bush Republican for Armitage never received a public “We gotcha” from Fitzgerald.

 

The new strategy entailed looking for statements that did not match from each individual under oath. Apparently Scooter Libby was the only person high enough for Fitzgerald to destroy. Libby was indicted for perjury.

 

Evidently it was more of a Federal crime to not remember recollections than it was for a sitting President to specifically get lying via DNA. Libby was indicted and convicted. Go figure! President Clinton perjured himself about sex with a White House intern and was impeached, but was found innocent by the then dominated Democratic Party Senate. Equal justice definitely was not spread out between the Left and the Right.

 

O yes, one other thing. Special Persecutor Patrick Fitzgerald spent millions of taxpayer dollars and did not convict one person for his Special Prosecutor mandate to find and prosecute anyone placing CIA operatives in mortal danger for revealing their cover. Fitzgerald’s lone conviction was a lame perjury verdict over memories that had to do with meetings and little to do with insignificant Valerie Plame.

 

Here is the ACT! For America email alert sent to me on 08/28/2009 01:56 PM :

 

Political Correctness Can Be Deadly

 

Political correctness can be annoying, frustrating, even exasperating.

But sometimes it can be deadly.

The commentary below [Editor: Michelle Malkin commentary link] exposes what can only be described as an infuriating excess of political correctness that will not only compromise our war against Islamist terrorism — it may cost people their lives.

The ACLU, in its obsession to put the “rights” of alleged terrorists ahead of law-abiding citizens and CIA agents, has been caught surreptitiously photographing CIA agents in order to show their pictures to alleged terrorists the ACLU is defending.

By doing so the ACLU has put these agents’ lives at risk in what appears to us to be an obvious violation of federal law, such as The Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982.

Will the Justice Department properly investigate the ACLU? We hope so.

But given Attorney General Eric Holder’s recent wrong-headed decision to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate interrogation actions by CIA interrogators, it’s difficult not to conclude that Holder’s sympathies lie more with the ACLU than they do with safeguarding the lives of Americans and CIA agents.

Many experts and observers are concluding that the direction the Justice Department is going will ultimately undermine our intelligence gathering as interrogators, fearful they may eventually be prosecuted, will choose to avoid any tactic that even remotely could be interpreted as “excessive.” How many terrorist plots will thus not be foiled, and how many people will die as a result? Only time will tell.

One of the interrogation practices that is being questioned is the blowing of cigar smoke in the face of an alleged terrorist. Can anyone outside of the anti-American left, the ACLU, and Eric Holder honestly believe that blowing cigar smoke in the face of a terrorist is “excessive,” or worse than the ACLU photographing CIA agents to show their pictures to terrorists?

This goes beyond absurd. This goes beyond political correctness run amok.

America, we must rise up against this insanity.

Communists, Islamists, Spies and America


BHO Change America

Barack Hussein Obama is the Democratic Party nominee for President in the November 4, 2008 election.

 

At best BHOs past is an enigmatic history. Documentation and past associations are blurry enough for BHO to enter into the realm of plausible deniability.

 

McCains past is fairly well documented with only Leftist detractors vain attempts to spin a hero into a liar. Most of those detractors utilize hear say and ad hominem conclusions that are typically baseless of Leftists trying to lie to the public. You can take a stroll through the website Vietnam Veterans Against John McCain and tell it is a spin Left site rather than eyewitness accounts.

 

Compare VVAJM to John Kerrys nemesis the Swift Vets (and now) and POWs for Truth. You will note the Swift Vets have terminated adding new material for their cause against Kerry; however they are leaving the website up as an archive. You will notice most of the anti-Kerry stuff (though Leftists and some Conservatives say are error) is basically eyewitness accounts v. Official (and questionable) documents supporting John Kerrys view of his action in Vietnam. Unfortunately documents carry more weight than eyewitness evaluation; however note that even to this day John Kerry has never sued the Swift Vets for defamation.

 

I found that rather strange since the Swift Vets were a huge factor in Kerry losing to President Bush in 2004. Voters received a perception that John Kerry was a person that lacked character to lead.

 

I doubt that McCain will sue (win or loose) the VVAJM because only gullible Leftists would even come close to believing this obvious valueless smear.

 

BHOs past is difficult to pin down because documentation is sketchy and eyewitnesses are from foreign lands (Kenya and Indonesia) and radical associations in the USA (Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Michael Pfleger,  American terrorists Bill Ayers And obviously honoring of other Marxists.)

 

BHOs unverifiable denials of his suspicious past is a huge enigma that voters are delusionally looking past due promises of political change in Washington, DC. Most of Americas media is in BHOs pocket (I am not suggesting money but rather admiration) to aid in backing the denials. If independent information slips through the cracks the BHO campaign and supporters are quick to accuse of racism to place the brakes on any tainting information.

 

This tactic of denial and lying to the public is standard fair for Marxist loving Leftists in America.

 

Recently there have been a number of scholarly works that exonerate Joseph McCarthy as being correct about Soviet spies in our midst. Most recently a comrade of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg confessed that he and they were in fact Soviet spies contrary to Americas Left portraying the Rosenbergs as victims of governmental Red Scare despotism.

 

Ninety-one year old Morton Sobell did not confess to some right wing extremist who goaded the old boy for the information. Sobells confession was made in a New York Times interview shortly after the National Security Archive historians filed a civil suit for the release of Grand Jury testimony related to the Rosenbergs.

 

So here is the point.

 

Barack Hussein Obama from early childhood was exposed to both Islamist and Marxist thinking in combinations of living in Kenya. A nation in which people tend to have more tribal loyalties than national loyalties and Barack Hussein Obama SR. was a Muslim with part time Marxist designs for Kenya. The same family tribe is the backbone of Islamist murderer Odinga who claims to be a cousin.

 

I cannot write about the Indonesia associations for the part of BHOs life is fuzzy enough that the actual truth cannot be grasped.

 

BHOs political career was backed by Marxist American terrorist turned professor Bill Ayers including the Marxist underpinnings of Black Liberation Theology and Farrakhans Islamic Supremacist Nation Islam.

 

I heard BHO on an OReilly interview that one cannot judge him by his associations.

 

Huh?

 

Dear God in Heaven, I am going to judge him by his past associations. The man is a Leftist Marxist Progressive Christian (Progressive means only accepting the parts of the Bible that can be exploited by Leftist thinking).

 

It all boils down to this: Leftists lie. Leftist history shows that statement to be true.

Islamophobe: Invective or Badge of Honor?


Islamophobic & Proud

The blog Doctor Bulldog and Ronin has reposted a New York Times editorial by Clark Hoyt from the NYT’s Public Editor’s Journal.

 

Hoyt defends Deborah Solomon’s hostile interview with Brigitte Gabriel that was posted on the Times Magazine that begins with “Questions for …

 

I myself posted an Act For America email pertaining to this interview in which the organization CAMERA was organizing an email/mail-in/phone-in protest for treating Gabriel with such mindless ignorant Leftist venom (my words – not CAMERA’s).

 

Evidently there was enough protest to elicit a weak response from the NYT. Clark Hoyt wrote the response which basically mimicked Solomon’s attitude about Islam; i.e. the self-righteous anger that anyone who calls a devout practitioner of that religion is a radical and thus a bigot or a racist.

 

Solomon’s words of choice were Crusader and Islamophobe.

 

Hoyt’s last paragraph says this:

 

I’ve had my issues with Solomon in the past, but I don’t think she or her editors have done anything here requiring an apology or any other corrective action. (A Radical Islamophobe?)

 

So we must conclude that the NYT is implying that Brigitte Gabriel is a bigot and a racist.

 

This means the NYT feels that a Crusader and an Islamophobe are invectives.

 

Let us examine these two words.

 

CRUSADER

 

I am guessing the NYT is referring to the Crusades from Europe to take back the Holy Land from Saracens (oops I mean conquering sadistic Muslims) rather than Christian Protestants who also use the word Crusader to mean one who operates a ministry event or meeting in a city or Church to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

 

It has been Politically Correct in the last quarter century or so to portray the Crusades and the Crusaders as a murderous band of thugs that set out for the Holy Land to pillage and kill along the way there and to slaughter people upon arrival. This is the victimized image Leftists, Left Wing Academics and Muslims would have everyone believe.

 

Although it is very true the Crusaders committed heinous acts, it also true the cause of the Crusades were the result of heinous acts committed by Muslims against Christians and Christian lands from the pseudo-prophet Mohammed and  through many of his military successors (both in direct line and those that were inspired by the theo-political cult of Mohammed).

 

Robert Spencer utilizes actual documentation to dispel the myth that the Crusaders existence was mere greed and blind ambition. The Crusader/Saracen encounter was a two-way street with most of the mud initiated by the Saracen (or Mohammedan or Muslim or whatever).

 

So it would seem that Deborah Solomon’s use of the word “Crusader” as an invective against Brigitte Gabriel is a display of Left Wing ignorance which the NYT has been nailed with a lot lately.

 

ISLAMOPHOBE

 

Phobia is usually a Greek etymological word that is slapped with another word to convey a meaning of a fear of … something. (Here is a list of fears.)

 

In the victimization politics of Leftists (and in post 9/11 days Muslims) a phobia often is extended beyond fear to include “hate.” Thus a common definition for Islamophobe is this:

 

A person who fears or hates Islam or Muslims. (Wiktionary)

 

Certainly this is Solomon’s meaning toward Brigitte Gabriel when she called her an “Islamophobe”.

 

The irony is most Islamophobe’s that believe they are Islamophobic are proud of being labeled with that moniker. A true Islamophobe is not fearful of Mohammedans or Muslims personally, rather there is a sense of exposing Islam as a threat to Western Society that believes in Freedom and Liberty. For an American this Freedom and Liberty is defined by the American Constitution. For the rest of Western Society there is a slight difference in the perceived rights inherent in Freedom and Liberty; nonetheless it is still contrary to the basics of Islam.

 

Now the “hate” portion of Islamophobia may differ depending on individuals. As a Christian I believe hate should not enter the mind toward any individual. In the Bible it says to “be angry and sin not.” This means to be angry or hate the evil force or thinking motivating an individual and NOT the individual. Unfortunately I sense there are non-Muslims that exist that “hate” the individual; however Brigitte Gabriel is not one of those even though she has plenty of reasons to hate. Gabriel has taken the path of exposing rather than retribution (American Congress For Truth and Act For America).

 

I like TheReligionOfPeace.com’s definition of Islamophobia:

 

Islamophobe (is-slahm-o-fohb) – A non-Muslim who knows too much about Islam.

 

Islamophobia is a fear of losing life or liberty to Islamic rule merely because the laws, sacred texts, and modern practices of Islam demand the submission of culture, politics, religion and all social expression.  It tends to afflict those most familiar with the religion, while sparing the more gullible.

 

In Muhammad’s day, Islamophobia was treated with a practice known as beheading.  Since this is now impractical outside of the Muslim world, the condition is best addressed by means of prevention.  Such preventive measures include willful ignorance helped along with a strong dose of taqiyya.

 

The fact is that when Islam checks in, a lot of folks wind up checking out… permanently.  Therefore Islamophobes are a pretty broad group known to include: READ FURTHER

 

I also like the Gates of Vienna’s rational about being an Islamophobe:

 

The term “Islamophobe” is fast joining “racist”, “homophobe”, et al., as a reliable tool of politically-correct argument, a way of silencing the Left’s opponents and consigning dissenters to the phobic outer darkness beyond the pale of polite discourse.

Object to Hamas? You must be Islamophobic!

Want to scrutinize speakers of Farsi or Arabic more carefully at the airport? Islamophobe!

 

Deborah Solomon’s effort to use words like Crusader and Islamophobe as invectives and Clark Hoyt’s NYT defense of Solomon is a Mainstream Media Leftist smear campaign to smear Brigitte Gabriel’s reputation in order to discredit the work she is doing to exposing the inherent deviancy in Mohammedanism that is categorically opposed to Western thought and the American Constitution in particular.

 

I am with Doctor Bulldog and Ronin in saying this:

 

In a word: Predictable… But, then again, being called an Islamophobe is a badge of honor in our book!

Since ACORN is officially a private Corporation and not a non-profit or registered political organization, their money is protected by privacy laws accept for what is declared to the IRS.

 

Since ACORN is a private Corporation the government should investigate that corrupt organization as a racketeering front involved in defrauding the government and the citizens of the United States of America.
