Stacy McCain speaks of Rights, Choices, and Equality

The Errors of ‘Democracy’

Posted on | February 1, 2015

We are heirs of a tradition. Each of us is born into circumstances that were created by our parents, by our grandparents, by our ancestors, and by the civilization in which they lived. Human life existed before we born and will continue after our deaths. As children we inherit the past. As parents we create the future. Wisdom requires us to understand ourselves as a single link in an infinite chain of human existence, rather than to imagine ourselves as free-floating atoms unconnected to others.

Popular ideas of “democracy” — the modernistic idolatry that speaks the language of “rights,” “choice” and “equality” — obscure the truth of human existence, trapping us in the present tense, isolating us as rootless individuals removed from the authentic traditions of our inheritance. Children are taught that the past is not merely useless, but actually harmful, because human history is nothing but a catalog of oppression, atrocities and victimhood. Thus, the modern child cannot be allowed to believe that his grandparents were wise or virtuous, that the great achievements of our civilization are worthy of respect.

The great idol of modernity is Progress. Everything that happened prior to today is “old-fashioned” and obsolete, and nothing is more obsolete than yesterday’s ideas. Whatever your parents or grandparents believed in 1980 or 1950 or 1920 is presumed to be wrong. Your ancestors were all racist sexist homophobes enslaved by patriarchal religious bigotry. Never mind that their beliefs enabled your ancestors to survive hardship that would be unimaginable for most Americans in the 21st century. In a remarkable span of six decades, America survived the Great Depression, triumphed in World War II and destroyed the Evil Empire of Soviet tyranny. Yet the American child today is taught to despise the values of the people who accomplished all that. The child cannot cherish his own inherited tradition or respect his own ancestors, and is instead commanded to bow down at the altar of Progress.

“To live for the moment is the prevailing passion — to live for yourself, not for your predecessors or posterity. We are fast losing the sense of historical continuity, the sense of belonging to a succession of generations originating in the past and stretching into the future. . . .
“Narcissism emerges as the typical form of character structure in a society that has lost interest in the future.”
Christopher Lasch, The Culture of Narcissism: American Life in an Age of Diminishing Expectations (1979)

What has resulted from this modernistic idolatry of democratic Progress — the utopian fantasy of an imagined future where we all live in absolute equality, free of “old-fashioned” beliefs — is a sort of social epidemic of bipolar hysteria, in which minds unmoored from cultural tradition constantly shift between utter confusion and radical certainty. Anyone who paid close attention to the “Occupy” protests of 2011 saw evidence of what kind of disordered personalities this progressive epidemic has produced. Young people who were clearly incompetent to manage their own lives nevertheless felt themselves entitled to dictate to the rest of us how “society” must be changed so as to “empower” these mobs of emotional unstable misfits. Refusing to take responsibility for their own failures, the Occupiers believed they were supremely qualified to pass judgment on the “system” that served as an all-purpose scapegoat onto which they could externalize blame for their misfortunes.

Duke: The lights are growing dim Otto. I know a life of crime has led me to this sorry fate, and yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am.
Otto: That’s bullshit. You’re a white suburban punk just like me.
Duke: Yeah, but it still hurts.

Great art speaks great truths and the death of Duke in Repo Man is an under-appreciated highlight of 20th-century cinematic art. Whatever the authorial purpose behind Alex Cox’s 1984 cult classic, that scene speaks eternal truth. Duke and his girlfriend Debbie try to rob a liquor story, and Duke laughs in psychopathic glee as he points his pistol at one of the clerk: “I’m going to kill him! I’m going to kill him! I’m going to kill everybody!” Unfortunately for Duke, there is a thing called karma in the world, and when Duke is momentarily distracted, the store clerk gets his shotgun and fatally wounds Duke. Debbie responds by shooting the clerk dead and it is then that Duke’s death scene plays out. Breathing his last gasps and spitting up blood, Duke speaks his own epitaph, expressing the worldview of every worthless punk who ever lived: “I blame society.”

Irresponsible people always need a scapegoat to blame for their faults and failures. They can never be satisfied to let their own shortcomings or disappointments be blamed on bad luck. Other people may be unlucky — indeed, many millions are far more unfortunate in their circumstances than the punk — but bad luck won’t do for him. No, the punk must always have someone to blame. His own failures and the problems that he has caused for himself? Not his fault. Blame society.

A punk’s entire life is basically one long quest for revenge, an attempt to even the score with “society,” to get back at the people he blames for whatever it is that has made him unhappy or unsuccessful.

The Cult of Progress has spawned a Punk Generation of people with no system of values except intellectual abstractions — “democracy,” “rights,” “equality” and so forth. They have learned nothing of sturdy virtue, nothing of classic Stoicism, nothing of the Calvinist ethos of enduring life’s hardships with a spirit of reverent gratitude.

We are told that democracy is synonymous with freedom, but we see how a false belief in “equality” between the wise and foolish, between the evil and the good, must ultimately enslave us all.

“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”
Romans 1:22 (KJV)

The Elite. They are Not Us.

The Cloud People

By: The Z Man

The global elites are the cloud people. They float above us, detached from language, culture and history. They have no loyalty to a country or the people and traditions of a country. It’s like the British Raj. The people in charge are fine with the rest of us engaging in our quaint customs, as long as it does not interfere with their looting of the resources. When the ground people cause trouble, then the cloud people step in to remedy it.

The modern global elites are formless and their dealings are entirely transactional. The rich and powerful of the Industrial Age used their wealth and power to build the cultural and political institutions of their country. They could look around them and see the envy and admiration of their tribe, they people, their country. Today’s elites hang out at Davos comparing Rolex watches and eating $50 hot dogs.

The class identity that our elites have realized is really an anti-identity. They hold the rest of us in contempt. That’s why the BBC looks for ways to poke the common Brit in the eye. It is why the NYTimes roots for whoever is fighting against the American service man, wherever he is sent to fight. It’s why elite academies keep retrograde companies like Chick-fil-A off their campus. They are who they are because they are not us.

Speaking the Truth Not Allowed in America

TENNESSEE: The Op Ed by a Vanderbilt University professor that is causing Muslim students and their leftist allies to lose their minds

0What would it take to make us admit we were wrong about Islam? What horrendous attack would finally convince us that Islam is not like other religions in the United States, that it poses an absolute danger to us and our children unless it is monitored better than it has been under the Obama administration?

Not surprisingly, Prof. Swain is no fan of Obama

Charlie Hebdo attacks prove critics were right about Islam.

By Carol M Swain

Tennessean  Over the past few years, we have had a man in Middle Tennessee who, like the founders of our nation, has risked his life, fortune and reputation to sound an alarm. After many years of his fighting alone in the wilderness, Andrew Miller Jr. and his Tennessee Freedom Coalition continue to be vindicated by current world events.

Dismissed by some as a kook, a hater and a bitter man, Miller, in my eye, has revealed himself to be a deeply committed man who sounded an alarm about Islam long before comedian Bill Maher and others were finally willing to admit that Islam is positively dangerous to our society.

Vanderbilt Students protesting Dr. Swain's views on Islam

More and more members of the PC crowd now acknowledge that Islam has absolutely nothing in common with Christianity, nor is it a worthy part of the brotherhood of man I long felt was characteristic of the Abrahamic religions. A younger, more naive version of myself once believed in a world where the people of the Book could and would get along because they all claimed Abraham as their father. No more!

I met Miller a few years ago and heard his story of how he worked on Wall Street and survived the deaths of more than 200 friends in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Those attacks transformed him into a crusader who has risked his life and reputation to warn us about the dangers of radical Islam. He and the coalition have paid a price by being labeled as haters for engaging in activities designed to educate and awaken a sleeping public.

IMG_8675_2-vi

It is fascinating today to watch how world events have vindicated Miller in his warnings about the dangers of radical Islam. It becomes clearer every day that Islam is not just another religion to be accorded the respect given to Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Baha’i and other world religions. The Jan. 7 terrorist attack resulting in 12 deaths at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine that committed the apparently unpardonable sin of lampooning the Prophet Muhammad, once again illustrates that Islam is a dangerous set of beliefs totally incompatible with Western beliefs concerning freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of association.

As Miller has so often stated, Islam has a problem with the West. Islam will never understand the freedoms that we live and die to preserve. If America is to be safe, it must remove the foxes from the henhouses and institute serious monitoring of Islamic organizations.

IMG_8678_2-vi

Civic education and other indicators of assimilation should be a prerequisite for remaining and advancing in this nation. We must be willing to recognize the dangers of the burka (head-to-toe garb worn by women in some Islamic sects), which allows individuals to completely conceal their identities.

If Muslims are to thrive in America, and if we are to be safe, then we must have ground rules that protect the people from those who disdain the freedoms that most of the world covets.

America following Europe Over the Cultural Suicide Cliff

The Muslim population of America is expanding at warp speed

Even when Muslims are a minority population they can and do transform whole cultures and societies. And not for the better.

Why? Because their holy book is a totalitarian ideology founded on submission and world domination. And toward that end, Islam is on the march. Meanwhile, the West remains mired in cowardice and complicity. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in Europe, which is on the fast track to join the Caliphate.

Not to be outdone by Europe’s madness, the United States is traveling down the same bloody path, importing large numbers of Muslims from Islamic countries thanks to the Islamophile sitting in the Oval Office and a nation full of dhimmis.

Estimates on the number of Muslims living in the US vary, ranging from 3 million to 7 million. Whatever the precise number, it’s already outdated as it rises with each passing nanosecond.

Since 9/11, there has been a dramatic uptick in immigration from Islamic countries with a 66% increase in the past decade. And things are just warming up. Islam is now the fastest growing religion in America.

Strange, is it not? War has been waged against America in the name of Islam and we’ve opened our doors ever-wider to those who adhere to the very ideology that mandates our destruction.

Pew Research projects that by 2030, the Muslim population in the United States will more than double. In large part this will be attributable to immigration; to a lesser degree due to the size of Muslim families.

In his book Slavery, Terrorism, and Islam, Peter Hammond wrote a detailed analysis on the proportion of Muslims to the overall population and increased violence and adherence to Sharia law. Hammond’s research reads like a roadmap to ruin; a horrifying picture of the future of civilization. To summarize an oft-quoted section:

When the Muslim population remains at or under 2%, their presence tends to fly low under the radar. In the 2% – 5% range, Muslims begin to seek converts, targeting those they see as disaffected, such as criminals. When the population reaches 5% they exert influence disproportionate to their numbers, becoming more aggressive and pushing for Sharia law. When the population hits the 10% mark Muslims become increasingly lawless and violent. Once the population reaches 20%, there is an increase in rioting, murder, jihad militias, and destruction of non-Muslim places of worship. At 40%, there are “widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare.” Once beyond 50%, infidels and apostates are persecuted, genocide occurs, and Sharia law is implemented. After 80%, intimidation is a daily part of life along with violent jihad and some state-run genocide as the nation purges all infidels. Once the nation has rid itself of all non-Muslims, the presumption is that ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ has been attained – the Islamic House of Peace.

(Peace, of course, is never attained. Schisms among sects, starting with the rift between Shia and Sunni, erupt. The ideal of absolute power with divine authority always leads to internal conflict.)

That the United States is ramping up Muslim immigration is sheer insanity. A crucial step to putting the brakes on this frenzied march to our demise is to close the door to Muslims – whether those from Islamic countries or anywhere else.

Unfortunately, we’re doing the exact opposite.

In the last three years alone, 300,000 Muslims immigrated to the United States. And that’s just the beginning. The Refugee Resettlement Program is paving the way for a mass of Muslims to flock to our shores. With the United Nations in charge of determining who qualifies for refugee status and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (formerly the Organization of the Islamic Conference) as the power broker at the UN, you can count on a flood of Muslim refugees to be arriving at a town near you – if not your own town – soon.

And as one might expect, Obama is on board with any and all avenues to bring Muslims to the United States. I guess it’s part of his dream; our nightmare.

Who can forget the lie he told back in 2009 when he said the United States was one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. Taqiyya? Stupidity? Slip of the tongue? Wishful thinking? Whatever the reason, it appears he is doing everything in his power to make that lie a reality.

Part of the process of flooding this country with Muslims from Islamic countries involves transplanting entire communities from places like Somalia. And just as we see in Europe, the new arrivals don’t assimilate and they live off the public dole.

For example, Family Security Matters reports that Somali immigrants have overwhelmed many small towns in America, creating their own enclaves. In some cases they’ve become the majority population – a population distinguished by being the least educated and most unemployed in the country, with evidence to show some have little motivation to become gainfully employed.

In addition to Muslims from Somalia, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, a new wave has started arriving from Syria. The State Department expects “admissions from Syria to surge in 2015 and beyond.” It is expected that 9,000 or more Syrian refugees will arrive this year with a plan to bring at least 75,000 over the next five years.

And as refugees flow in, our tax dollars flow out as the American tax payer funds the Muslim invasion, because when refugees arrive they are linked with a broad array of publically-funded services (food stamps, subsidized housing, subsidized medical care, tutors, interpreters, and so on). In addition, charities (many of which are Christian or Jewish) that assist refugees receive federal grant money to provide additional support.

And where do these new immigrants from Islamic countries settle once they arrive? Well, just about everywhere and anywhere. The five states with the largest number of refugees are Texas, California, New York, Michigan, and Florida. But the situation is very dynamic and as numbers are updated, demographic shifts occur.

There are also regions of the country that participate in what is called the Preferred Communities Program. The program considers small towns and rural areas to be most suited to refugees and immigrants because small communities are best able to offer the kinds of services this new class of imports need. Or so they claim. And so we’ve got Somali refugees flocking to Cheyenne, Wyoming, in order to get easy-to-come-by Section 8 housing vouchers they take to other states. Those states either pick up the tab, or bill Cheyenne. And Cheyenne is running out of money. Duh.

So much for the taqiyya on the Preferred Communities Program website waxing poetic about the contributions these immigrants make to our society: “Refugees help communities learn and appreciate the many ways newcomers’ talents contribute to a richer, stronger society.”

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Maybe that was the case in another time in America. But not now in the age of multi-culturalism. Not with Muslim refugees with no skills, enormous needs, and a sense of entitlement. Oh, and for some, the desire to kill us.

So why are all of these Muslim refugees coming here anyway? Why aren’t they being taken in by Muslim majority countries? It would certainly make sense. After all, they’re much closer geographically, language barriers would be reduced, and local values and traditions are closer.

That Muslim majority countries have not opened their doors to these refugees is, I am confident, quite by design. This is about conquest. Otherwise known as Hijra, the Islamic doctrine of immigration. Hijra works in concert with violent jihad to overwhelm a society until Islam becomes the single dominant force.

And while Muslim refugees swarm into the United States as part of this conquest, Obama has twisted the knife even further by (1) easing requirements for potential immigrants who have links to “soft” terror, and (2) closing the door to persecuted Christians in the Middle East who have precious few options of where to flee. (Obama is also making it exceedingly difficult for French Jews to immigrate to the United States.) Per Investor’s Business Daily:

In another end-run around Congress, President Obama has unilaterally eased immigration requirements for foreigners linked to terrorism. (snip)

…By exempting five kinds of limited material support for terrorism, Obama instantly purges more than 4,000 suspects from the U.S. terror watch list and opens our borders up to both them and their families. (snip)

At the same time Obama opens the floodgates to them, he’s closing our borders to Christians fleeing persecution by Muslims in Egypt, Iraq and other Mideast countries.

Leave it to Obama to make a good situation bad. And then make a bad situation worse. He isn’t satisfied until he’s upped the ante so far imminent danger is at hand.

So we’re importing Muslims from Muslim majority countries who are traumatized, who don’t speak English, who have few skills, who follow the teachings of the Koran, many of whom want to spread Sharia law, some of whom actively support terror, and/or others of whom are or will become terrorists, while we’ve abandoned Christians trapped in the Middle East as they are slaughtered en masse.

To be blunt: We are importing Islamic terror. Not because every Muslim is a terrorist. But because enough of them are. And plenty more who don’t commit acts of terror support it – quietly at home or loudly in the street.

Below is a snapshot of where American Muslims stand on a variety of issues based on polls conducted over the past few years (see here, here, and here):

·      13% agree that some frequency of violence to defend Islam against civilians is justified.

·      19% are either favorable toward Al Qaeda or aren’t sure.

·      40% support Sharia law and believe they should not be judged by U.S. law and the Constitution.

·      46% believe Americans who mock or criticize Islam should face criminal charges, with 12.5% in support of the death penalty for blasphemers, another 4.3% somewhat agreeing on the death sentence for those who insult Islam, and 9% unsure if the death penalty should apply.

In addition, to name a few additional points of concern among many (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here):

·      Mosques are proliferating across the landscape at breakneck speed, 80% of them preach jihad (through sermons and/or materials), and more than 95% of American Muslims attend such mosques.

·      Many American Muslims send their children to Islamic schools where they are indoctrinated in hate.

·      Many American Muslims have embraced Jew-hatred, as is written in the Koran.

·      There are compounds across America where Muslims receive jihad training.

·      Our prisons are breeding grounds for jihadists.

·      The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated every arm of our government as well as other major institutions.

So all-in-all, there are a lot of Muslims in America who are on board with Islamic law/jihad. It doesn’t matter if all of them are. Enough of them are.

What are we doing?!

We’re carefully planning our suicide, that’s what.

As Michael Walsh wrote at PJ Media: “There is no assimilating invaders who wish to replace your society with theirs, whether they call themselves ‘immigrants,’ ‘refugees’ or ‘asylum-seekers’…When it comes to the soul of a country, there really can be only one.”

Even when Muslims are a minority population they can and do transform whole cultures and societies. And not for the better.

Why? Because their holy book is a totalitarian ideology founded on submission and world domination. And toward that end, Islam is on the march. Meanwhile, the West remains mired in cowardice and complicity. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in Europe, which is on the fast track to join the Caliphate.

C.S. Lewis on The Evils of Statism

For decades, some Christians, both “conservative” and “liberal,” have unfortunately embraced an ill-conceived “progressive” (i.e., authoritarian) vision to wield intrusive government powersas an unquestionable and even sanctified calling for both domestic and international matters, abandoning the Christian, natural-law tradition in moral ethics and economics. In contrast, the Oxford/Cambridge scholar and best-selling author C. S. Lewis did not suffer such delusions, despite the gigantic and deeply disturbing advances and conflicts of total war, the total state, and genocides that developed during his lifetime.

Europe Is Insane Concerning islam

“FAR RIGHT” = THE NEW “SANE” #PEGIDA #UKIP #FN #Islamic

By Stogie

In the suicidal mainstream media, any European political movement is “Far Right” if it opposes Islamic immigration and Islamization.

Why “Far” right?  Is common sense and a desire for self-preservation “extreme” positions?  Is it unreasonable or irrational to fear being beheaded, shot, stabbed or blown up by Muslim immigrants?

No.  It’s a no-brainer.  Muslims kill people.  All Muslims?  No, just the devoted ones who follow their own scriptures and the example of their “prophet.”

What is extreme is an immigration policy that will replace Western civilization with 7th Century barbarism, backwardness and tyranny.  It is both rational and reasonable that Europeans are beginning to resist the national suicide imposed by their delusional rulers.  The mass murder of 12 French journalists this week was the “fire bell in the night”needed to awaken the European masses.  Meanwhile, Muslims throughout the Middle East celebrated the murders with hugs and sweets, once again demonstrating the vicious nature of Islamic culture and its anti-human values.

Some of the resistance movements include U.K.’s Britain First Party and the UK Independence Party (UKIP).  France has the French National Front.  Now Germany has an anti-Islamization movement growing in numbers.  It is called PEGIDA, which stands for  “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident,” in German.  Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel, denounced PEGIDA saying that they “had hate in their hearts.”  If that be so, I am with them, for I too have hate in my heart:  I hate Islam, just as I hate Communism and Fascism.  All three ideologies have caused the murders of  millions, and Islam outstrips the latter two by a large amount.

The true “extremists” are those who don’t hate such evil, but instead invite it in, give it aid and comfort, rationalize it and defend it.  They must be opposed and they must be stopped.

Diversity? It Ain’t Gonna FLy

The Birth of Three Nations

Diversity: Koom. Bah. Humbug

From Fred on Everything

Regarding the unsurprising slaughter in Paris:

Diversity is a disaster. Why people cannot see this is a mystery. A country can ignore an unfortunate reality, but it cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring it. Why governments allow and even encourage immigration of incompatible populations is a greater mystery. Few things cause more misery, hatred, death, and destruction than does diversity. One may wish it were not so, but it is so.

Diversity. It offers to divide America into three countries, self-aware and, may God preserve us, mutually hostile. We can talk forever about what ought to be. We can leap from a tall building, insisting that we are birds. Yet we live in what is. We are not birds. Reality eventually takes hold. Aye, there’s the rub.

Distaste for diversity of almost any kind runs through societies. Liberals associate chiefly with liberals, conservatives with conservatives, military people with military people, the rich with the rich, the highly intelligent with the highly intelligent, the young with the young. We may tolerate others if the distinctions are not too great, or if we are not forced into excessive contact. For example, while the Chinese in America are superficially very different from Euro-Americans, they are quiet, courteous, law-abiding, and studious, so little antagonism occurs. But the potential is there, as when they greatly outperform whites academically.

As a species we do not like diversity, though we may think that we should. People want to be with others like themselves. Difference breeds suspicion, friction arises,and the depraved or disagreeable nature of the other group is blamed.

Daniel Greenfield Explains the Importance of Blasphemy

The Importance of Blasphemy

By Daniel Greenfield

As a deeply religious person, I have no fondness for blasphemy. My religion and its holy books are sacred to me. And I understand perfectly well why a Muslim would not relish a cartoon of a naked Mohammed. But the debates over freedom of speech and the sensitivity of religious feelings also miss the point. Blasphemy is the price we pay for not having a theocracy. Muslims are not only outraged but baffled by the Mohammed cartoons because they come from a world in which Islamic law dominates their countries and through its special place proclaims the superiority of Islam to all other religions…

Everyone’s religion is someone else’s blasphemy. If we forget that, we need only look to Saudi Arabia, where no other religion is allowed, as a reminder.

Muslims who question freedom of speech are not calling for a special status for all religions, but only for their religion. They don’t intend to censor their own Hadiths which claim that Jesus will return and break the cross or that the apocalypse will climax with Muslims exterminating the Jews. Their objections aren’t liberal, but exclusively theocratic. They want a blasphemy law that exclusively revolves around them.

So Duke University Cancels the mooslim butt kissing fest?

Once again let us look to Memorandum for the story of Duke and the muzzies:

(Note: I have purposely not capitalized the proper names as they pertain to islam. I do not think they are worthy of that distinction. DC)

Franklin Graham / WNCN:
Duke bows to pressure, cancels weekly Muslim call to prayer

Let us look through this article and examine the many problems with this way of thinking.

DURHAM, N.C. –

Duke University has canceled its plans to have a Muslim prayer announcement broadcast from Duke Chapel’s belltower on Friday afternoons.

The university announced its plans to facilitate a weekly call to prayer; but on Thursday, Duke officials acknowledged the decision resulted in unintended backlash. A Duke official told WNCN the school changed its mind after it was “presented with some significant and credible concerns about safety and security.”

“The idea was conceived with the best of intentions and the greatest of intentions to create unity,” said Michael Schoenfeld, vice president for public affairs and government relations. “It turned out to have the opposite effect and it was actually creating divisiveness that was neither intended nor valuable.”

Well lade-frickin-da! It “resulted in unitended backlash.” What did they think it was going to do? Everyone gather around the campfire and sing Kumbaya? Duke University was started by Methodist and Quaker Christians. A simple look at the history of this institution will reveal that muslims had absolutely nothing to do with it. http://library.duke.edu/rubenstein/uarchives/history/articles/narrative-history. The article goes on to quote a statement from a muslim society whose purpose is the same purpose of CAIR and every other muslim organization in the United States. That purpose is soft propaganda by which the resistance to muslim infiltration is gradually broken down over a period of time with constant initiatives and dialogue using the common theme of “coming together” in unity and harmony. I think they have seen that approach will work much better in the United States than outright terrorism. It is the same concept put forth by Khrushchev and his Russian commie buddies back in the cold war days. He knew that by slowly chipping away at the Judeo-Christian foundation of America we would fall from within. No need for a full frontal assault. islam can slowly choke the life of democracy off by doing this exact thing all over the country.

“They apparently bent to pressure. It’s a slap in the face to Muslims, not just to the students there but to the Muslim community of Raleigh and to Muslims in general,” said Khalilah Sabra, with the Muslim American Society. “At this time, we should be trying to build something together.”

See, there it is – “We should be trying to build something together.” I assure you, the only thing muslims want to build is a universal caliphate and impose shariah law on the western world. I cannot emphasize enough that Christianity and islam are totally and unequivocally opposite of each other and cannot be reconciled to exist in any kind of agreement. islam is an evil, murderous, ideology that teaches, lives, breathes, and demonstrates around the world every second of every day, its bloody, murderous, vengeful, evil nature that spews forth death and destruction in every area that it controls through fear and intimidation. islam degrades and enslaves women, does not tolerate homosexuality (at least officially) and a million other things it deems Haram or not allowed. Every single day islamic clerics are coming up with another “forbidden thing” that can get a person stoned, beaten, or beheaded. I specifically mention homosexuality here since it is the liberal pet cause these days and they champion the right to commit every deviancy known to man yet also bow down to islam which is a direct contradiction. Once islam and shariah law is in place homosexuality would be banned. How anyone can think that this ideology can “coexist” with Christianity or any other religion is seriously deluded. islam actively perscutes and kills Jews, Christians, Hindus and Buddhists around the world. They are commanded to do so by the man they serve and the book they read. What else do you expect? Anyone who is not a follower of prophet mo is considered an infidel and must either convert to islam or be killed. So how in the world can Christianity and islam come together on any so-called common ground? There is NO common ground. Thank God that at least one Christian spoke out against this atrocity. Franklin Graham says below:

The plan also drew the ire of evangelist Franklin Graham, who urged Duke alumni to withhold support because of violence against Christians that he attributed to Muslims.

Graham told WNCN he felt the school “was making a huge mistake.”

“First of all, this chapel was given by donors, Methodists, from across this state and other areas, so that there would be a Christian chapel on the campus so that the students would have a place to worship the God of the Bible,” Graham said. “What I have the problem is using the chapel that was built to be a house of worship — to worship Jesus Christ as the Son of God — that they’re using this now so that they can put loud speakers and use it as a minaret.”

Graham is the head of Samaritan’s Purse and the son of evangelical Billy Graham. He said other religions “are getting front row and Christians are being pushed … to the back of the room.”

“And we’re the majority,” Graham said.

Duke, a private school, was founded by Methodists and Quakers and has a divinity school historically connected to the United Methodist Church. Duke has roughly 15,000 students, including 6,500 undergraduates. The school said about 700 students are Muslim.

The amazing thing to me is that both secular and Christian America have this sudden need to bow down to and accomadate islam and muslims. This is not a muslim institution. It started as a Christian institution, as did many schools in this country before secularism and humanism took over the American educational system. It is today far removed from much of a Christian premise even in their divinity school.

A student, quoted below, said the decision “disturbed” him. You know what disturbs me? That someone who is pursuing a masters degree in “divinity,” of which I assume means the “Divinty of Christ,” would have this mindset. This is the damning mindset of liberal, lukewarm, candyass Christianity that is being pushed out of many of these so called seminaries in this country. God help us that this is the kind of person that will stand in a church pulpit and instruct others on the tenets of the Christian faith. Reminds me of Matthew 25:27 (Living Bible) : 27 “Woe to you, Pharisees, and you religious leaders! You are like beautiful mausoleums—full of dead men’s bones, and of foulness and corruption. 28 You try to look like saintly men, but underneath those pious robes of yours are hearts besmirched with every sort of hypocrisy and sin.

Lars Akerson, a master’s student at Duke Divinity School, said he was disturbed to hear the University reversed its decision.

“We have a lot to learn from one another. But if we fear what we see rather than want to learn together, I think that’s too bad,” Akerson said. “Fearing people who we don’t know is really unfortunate.”

One student, who I am sure is one of the smartest individuals in the universe, said this:

“We should have gotten over these things a long time ago. Prejudice and bigotry and Islamophobia should not exist now. … People can’t separate Islam from terrorism. People can’t separate Islam from fear. A minority of people have done something very wrong — they harmed people — but the majority of Muslims have nothing to do with them whatsoever.”

How will this student like this plan? Shariah law imposed upon her.

It is certainly true that every muslim is not a terrorist. But almost every terrorist is a muslim. The only thing this girl will be getting over is her loss of freedom to do as she pleases because she will be wrapped up and enslaved within shariah law, wearing a burka as commanded by her new leaders. islam teaches retribution, murder, and death. If any so-called moderate muslims do not agree with this doctrine of jihad, then let them come forward and speak out against it. So far I have not heard much. Silence is consent. One other thought before I go. You will notice in these “common ground” diatribes that are constantly being pushed by liberals and muslim activists (and they are ALL actively involved and committed to conquering the world in the name of islam) that the only people expected to compromise are the “other” parties involved. The muslims want to come and take over the church, or the synagogue, or the cathedral, or the Catholic University. It is never the other way around. That is because the muslims would never allow anyone of any other faith or any infidel to desecrate their mosque or so called holy place. Infidels cannot even enter their holy city of Mecca. Then let me pose the glaringly obvious question. Why are Christians, even the Pope for God’s sake, allowing muslims to enter in and desecrate our faith, our churches, our universities, and our traditions. Jesus Christ said plainly in John 14:6 :Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Now there can only be one – “The way.” Not “a” way. If Jesus Christ is THE WAY then everything and everyone else is not the way. Paul said in 1 Timothy 2:5 : For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Jehovah God told Moses in Exodus 3:14 :And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you. There is one God and that God is Jehovah. His name is not allah. Allah is a false god and his messenger mo is a liar, pedophile, and murderer. There can only be one god. And we here in America have to decide whom we will serve. As Joshua said to the children of Israel I say this to you. Joshua 24:14-15:

14 Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.

15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

I have made my decision. What about you?  Dave Cole

Liberals bashing White people again

MY THOUGHTS ON THE MATTER

Simply observe all the below links from Memeorandum and you will see examples of the ever popular liberal sport of bashing white people, especially white males. What is even more amazing is that if you read many of these stories, they are written by white liberals, many of them men. White liberals who wish they were black but since they cannot change their skin color they self flagellate so they can pretend to identify with the poor, deserving, constantly overlooked blacks in whatever area of society under discussion at the moment. In this case it is the world of Hollywood but it applies to every situation that arises. Notable is that here is  Shakedown Sharpton, reining king of racism, interjecting himself into the mix, even comparing this to, OMG! – Ferguson! Overlooking a black film is the same as killing people? Compared to what is going on out in the real world, Sharpton wants to compare a bunch of narcissistic, egotistic, greedy Hollywood types getting together and patting themselves on the back by handing out meaningless awards to themselves to Ferguson? One headline screams that the Oscars are heading in the wrong direction? What direction should they be going in? An all black, lesbo, gay, transgendered, bisexual, I-don’t-know-what-the-hell-I-am-but-I-know-I-deserve-special-treatment direction? Would that make the liberal morons happy? Talk about an alternative lifestyle – these people all live in an alternative universe that exists only in their deluded minds. The movie “Selma” was snubbed. As the late great Andrew Breitbart would say, So fucking what.  ZTW

muslim Terrorism must be cut off at its Source: The Arab States of the Middle East

True in 2003. Even more true today….

The enemy must and can be defined. That he is the terrorist himself almost everyone agrees, but in the same way that the United States extended blame beyond the pilots who attacked Pearl Harbor, it must now reach far back into the structures of enablement for the sake of deciding who and what must be fought. And given the enormity of a war against civilians, and the attacks upon our warships, embassies, economy, capital, government, and most populous city, this determination must be liberal and free-flowing rather than cautious and constrained, both by necessity and by right. The enemy has embarked upon a particular form of warfare with the intent of shielding his center of mass from counterattack, but he must not be allowed such a baseless privilege. For as much as he is the terrorist who executes the strategy, he is the intelligence service in aid of it, the nation that harbors his training camps, the country that finances him, the press filled with adulation, the people who dance in the streets when there is a slaughter, and the regime that turns a blind eye.

Not surprisingly, militant Islam arises from and makes its base in the Arab Middle East. The first objective of the war, therefore, must be to offer every state in the area this choice: eradicate all support for terrorism within your borders or forfeit existence as a state. That individual terrorists will subsequently flee to the periphery is certain, but the first step must be to deny them their heartland and their citadels.

An excerpt from War in the Absence of Strategic Clarity

islam is a venomous Snake. It must be killed. To Kill a Snake you must Cut Off its Head.

First we kill the clerics.

Islamic nations that observe sharia law have no real civic institutions.

The clerics rule all, and the warrior caste are their enforcers. Rule of law, property rights, due process, and social behavior are all administered by the imams and ayatollahs. The mufti determine what is Islam, who are blasphemers and apostates, and what punishment is ordained. The clerics incite the warrior caste, creating shock troops that enforce prescribed behavior among the population, and wage terror against the rest of the world. The clerics are just as guilty of conspiracy to commit murder as Charles Manson, and this is why they must be confined or killed. They are the head of the serpent. This is neither cruel nor barbaric; it is merely the acknowledgement that crimes carry penalties, and punishment must to served to preserve the scales of justice.

This Explains Life Perfectly

Well Now, That Explains Things…..

On the first day, God created the dog and said, “Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.”

The dog said, “That’s a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten?”

And God saw it was good.
On the second day, God created the monkey and said,“Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I’ll give you a twenty-year life span.”

The monkey said, “Monkey tricks for twenty years? That’s a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?”

And God, again saw it was good.

On the third day, God created the cow and said,“You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer’s family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.”

The cow said, “That’s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I’ll give back the other forty?”

And God agreed it was good.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said,“Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I’ll give you twenty years.”

But the human said, “Only twenty years?Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?”

“Okay,” said God, “You asked for it.”

So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves.

For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family.
For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.
