America’s Age of Delusion

January 29, 2017

flames-horz(I wrote this on the eve of 2016… holding my breath that we could make it through another year and still be America, land of the free. It is now 2017, I believe we have dodged a bullet, but may yet face baptism by fire.)

In “Age of Delirium: The Decline and Fall of the Soviet Union” David Satter describes the shattered grip of a Communist government on every aspect of the masses. The people stood in shock and apprehension at the loss of the protective state and at their new and uncertain liberation to think and act for themselves.

We in America will have such a moment, when the Demagogue-in-Chief is gone, when collectivism (communism, socialism, progressivism, the left’s “liberalism”) is finally discredited and ceases to be vogue. The left’s leadership class will lose their allure as paragons of equality and fairness, and be seen as leading “taker class,” confiscating the fruits of others’ labor and amassing power both seen and unseen. Soon politically correct will be recognized as self-censorship and resoundingly rejected; and moral and cultural equivalence are recognized as demonstrably absurd. A time will come when our federal government abides its limitations, when state governments exercise their rightful roles, when citizens are respected; when propaganda is rejected and knowledge is craved, when those dead white men are read and appreciated; when personal responsibility is less burden and more liberation and American exceptionalism expresses itself in a myriad of ways. Americans will value their nation, their culture and citizenship and their children.

However, as we recognize our delusion and struggle to free ourselves from the left’s clutches, we will simultaneously identify and formally recognize a second existential threat to life, liberty and the pursuit: Islamic Doctrine.

There is much yet to be done, but that vision is there, just out of reach. Will we claim it?

END CULTURAL JIHAD

January 30, 2016

Islam commands the attainment of political objectives as religious duty. Islam’s prime directive is Islam over all by conversion, subjugation or jihad.

Implicit in this unquenchable imperialism is Islamic supremacism and its hostility to all things not Islam. Islam’s calling card is the conquest of “filthy kafirs”–unbelievers–who earn wrath in this life and the next. If we dare to look at Islamic doctrine, we find denigration of kafir values, antagonism to kafir culture, recurring theft of property and wealth–the fruits of kafir labor, obliteration of kafir art and history, and the taking of kafir girls as tilth for the plowing and the making of the coming generations of Islam.

Implicit is the loss of kafir liberty–a thing to be relegated to our past, a past we will forget as the decades pass and the demands of Islamic sharia law deconstruct the soul and conscience of once free men, women and children.

Unrealistic? Fraudulent? Too uncomfortable to ponder?

Consider atrocities done in the name of Islam: Torture and slaughter of Jews, Christians, Yazidis, Animists, and “insufficiently Islamic” Muslims, particularly Apostates. The systematic rape, gang rape and sexual slavery of captured women. The destruction of history caused by repeated obliteration of art, religious structures and libraries. Add to that the seemingly endless offense-mongering and intimidation by Islamic minorities, organizations and international bodies.

Why do they hate us? Because Islam. Why all the violence? Because Islam. Why all the fear? Because Islam.

“Just Say No” is not enough. “Hashtags” are not enough. “I” am not enough. We will need broad cultural fortitude and deep political will to stop the ongoing assault on our civilization.

Please help to END CULTURAL JIHAD… And recognize that this cultural Betrayal Starts at the Top, with many in the so called leadership class who remain paralyzed by fear, abjectly clueless, or traitorously complicit.

I Wish… (or sweet lies and whispered truths)

The Black Flag of Islam

The Black Flag of Islam

I wish Islam were a religion of peace, but it is not.

I wish our view of Islam were tied to evidence-based reality, but it frequently is not.

I wish our weakness did not aid Islam’s resurgence, but it does.

I wish the cautionary pleadings from Jefferson and Adams, Churchill, and Pirenne had been heeded, and not lost in the fog of revisionist history.

I wish our ignorance did not empower those bent on our destruction, but it does.

I wish we scrutinized details, rather than look away, hope for the best, or accommodate the unknown.

I wish Islam had not destroyed the world’s art, architecture and libraries-the repositories of human knowledge, but evidence indicates that it has and it continues still.

I wish no one were denied enjoyment of art, music, laughter and of love, but sadly Islam provides evidence they are denied indeed.

I wish we could compare values across peoples but, alas, the charade of multiculturalism instructs us we cannot, for comparison implies judgment.

I wish women were safe from Islamic violence and sexual slavery, but they are not.

I wish children were cherished and nurtured in Islam, but often we can see they are not.

I wish the world were focused on protecting life and freedom from the clutches of Islamic sharia law, but it is not.

I wish our tolerance beget tolerance, but instead it breeds rage and desire for domination.

I wish Islam had not killed nearly 300,000,000 people in the last 1,400 years, but the legacy of jihad tells us it has.

I wish the jihad had not been born, or had died in the past, but it is ongoing.

I wish Islam would reform or wither; expunge the hate or recede, stamp out jihad or fade away, jettison the sharia or perish.

I wish pleasant fictions could protect us and deny flesh to the sword of jihad, but we remain exposed and vulnerable.

For if we spoke not in the wishes but in objective facts, asked reasoned questions and demanded honest answers, how much better might we understand the current threats and have already fortified our nations to repulse the enemy, thus securing our culture and human liberty from death by a thousand cuts?

Liberty vs Sharia, One is Better

The theo-political doctrine of Islam is defined by the koran (Allah) and sunnah (all things Mohammed) and implemented under “sacred” Islamic sharia law (see the ROTT*). Islam is as much a political ideology as a theological creed, concerning itself largely with the treatment of non-believers, rather than with good deeds and the salvation of believers. And its ‘good deeds’ often involve the maltreatment of non-believers. Islam, as a political manifesto, should be labeled a threat doctrine, its true believers a threat.

Islam makes the attainment of political objectives a religious duty. What is Islam striving to attain? Its ultimate imperial and supremacist aim is to replace or subjugate anything non-Islamic. First, a gentle invitation to Islam; accept and join the “ummah,” the global Islamic community. Second, a not so gentle offer to live in subjugation under sharia as a third-class non-Muslim, paying the jizya (non-Muslim tax) and feeling subdued, humiliated and weak. Or third, all manner of jihad upon you until you do the first, the second or die.

Nearly 1400 years of history are witness to Islam’s expansion and progress toward ‘sharia uber alles.’ Wherever Islam establishes itself, a state within a state develops and the existing form of government and unbelieving (kafir, infidel) culture is rejected. The ummah grows, first weakening the host culture by social pressure, political means or violence, then imposing sharia through intimidation or actual codification in law.

Sharia denies freedom of speech, religion, expression and action and rejects equality between men and women, thereby violating human rights. Sharia has no “Golden Rule” to treat individuals equally. Instead Sharia segregates people into classes: Muslims and non-Muslims. Muslims are supreme and non-Muslims are inferior, holding no equal rights under Islam. Muslim-Muslim relations are completely separate from Muslim-kafir relations, where deceit is sanctioned and mistreatment largely unpunished.

No matter the temperament of individual Muslims, the Islamic community as a whole, the ummah, drives the process of Islamization—situating Islam as a superior “special class”—in every country where Islam thrives. Islam and the sharia. Mosques teach it, Muslims demand it and all else falls before it. Across the globe intimidation, violence and political upheaval are associated with increasing Muslim populations.

The US is a representative democracy thoughtfully crafted by our founders, with the Declaration of Independence proclaiming that humans are created equal and have unalienable rights, and the US Constitution protecting these rights through law. Sharia is irreconcilably in conflict with our founding principles and law—its objectives are indeed to overturn our law and replace it with their sharia. We cannot extend our welcome to Islam’s supremacism and intolerance for to do so is cultural suicide.

President Thomas Jefferson rejected the payment of tribute to Islamic Ottoman provinces and their pirates in 1801. We should similarly reject any monetary homage today or tolerate the growth of a threat doctrine or its body of believers within our borders. The Islamic ummah and its law, the sharia, are grave dangers to the United States of America and should be acknowledged as such and treated as such.

IS A MORAL ASSESSMENT OF EVIL… BIGOTRY?

October 3, 2012

In any threat situation fear exists. Fear of death and manner of death, of pain, of confrontation, of shouting bearded men from an alien culture. Fear exists and is useful. Fear of islam/sharia/jihad is not a phobia. The reaction is the key… cowardice, appeasement and submission are common responses, however courage, action, insight, leadership are also possible responses to fear.

The other part of response is our lack of belief in ourselves, perhaps even an understanding of why we are not Afghanistan or Somalia or Zimbabwe or North Korea. PC – not speaking in facts, truths, data, history, nor asking difficult questions – is disarming us mentally and physically.

Is PC about not offending someone else, or not believing in yourself? Are we as a society so hollow, so empty? As Evan Sayet put it, for liberals “A moral thought is an act of bigotry.” Is a moral assessment of evil bigotry? Can I not say that rape, murder and paedophilia are bad and wrong? That totalitarian government and intrusive, oppressive, discriminatory overlords are bad for humanity? That islam is not just different, but WRONG. Wrong on liberty, wrong on equality before the law, wrong on nuturing childhood development, wrong in its restriction of art, music, human expression? Are my thoughts a crime against humanity? Or an assessment of a theo-political doctrine that is the antithesis of Western Culture and the American Constitution that I cherish?


Abode of Subjugation?

July 9, 2012

Death and terror from islam may seem like far off possibilities. Easy to dismiss, perhaps, with no personal responsibility and no moral qualms accruing to the citizen. However, islam’s goal is not to kill us all, but to convert a few and subjugate the rest.

Islam’s ideological goal is not war or terror, for those are tactics, the goal is to replace man-made law with “sacred” islamic law-the sharia, the path-so that islam reigns over Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Aside from a few hot wars, there is little to deter them; few in positions of political leadership know about sharia, fewer yet speak forthrightly about it. And since islam makes political objectives a religious duty, the global march is on.

The rule of Muslims over non-Muslims is part of sharia and is defined in the authoritative book The Reliance of theSharia, Dhimma Traveller-A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law.* A detailed description of life as an inferior being under sharia is found at “o11.0 Non-Muslim Subjects of the Islamic State (Ahl-Dhimma)” on page 607. It is described as a formal agreement of protection and if you as an infidel follow it you won’t be harmed.

What does life under the dhimmi agreement mean? Foremost you are obliged to follow the sharia whether you like to or not, understand it or not, agree with it or not (o11.3). You are a second class subject-think Copts. It means oppression-think Christians in Pakistan. It is subjugation. And what does that subjugation look like?

The subjugated person, the dhimmi under the condition of dhimmitude, will be penalized for committing adultery or theft (though generously not for drunkenness); must dress differently by command; are not greeted with “as-Salamu ‘alaykum”; must keep to the side of the street; may not build higher than or as high as the Muslims’ buildings (though if they acquire a tall house, it is not razed – such kindness!); are forbidden to openly display wine or pork, forbidden to ring church bells, forbidden to display crosses, forbidden to recite the Torah or evangelize; and of course forbidden to build new churches (o11.4). And the dhimmi must never harm a Muslim or disparage islam and certainly not draw offensive cartoons.

Imagine what this subjugation might feel like. Well, we might not need to imagine at all, for in many ways it has already arrived. Thinking twice before you speak your mind. Wondering if your on-line posts will bring account termination. As a business owner, being coerced to accommodate Muslims whether as employees or customers. Finding school texts and college courses filled with historical fantasies about islamic contributions. Needing to go to a special store to buy certain products because your local grocer was cowed into not carrying them. Watching the media contort itself to adhere to internal speech codes. Hearing your local mosque blaring the call to prayer. Being ignored by your elected representatives. And there will be the paying of the jizya – the islamic poll tax (o11.3), as you will be reduced to a tax slave. And if you elect to violate the dhimmi contract – war be upon you, kinetic or civilizational jihad.

Is this sinking in? Is the foundation for hope and tolerance and mutual respect cracking?. Whether in formal agreement or simply by intimidation, islam and sharia advance and non-Muslim cultures retreat, as they have for centuries. Your culture is now retreating. Your law is violated, your liberty cast aside, your voice silenced. Even your military and security apparatus has all but criminalized any accurate description of the current kinetic and cultural threats. Those with such knowledge have been fired, eschewed and their words purged. And is our foreign aid (derived from OUR tax dollars) being cheerfully received as jizya or tribute by Muslim-majority nations? Is our “leadership” kneeling before islam on your behalf?

This is subjugation. Dhimmitude by agreement or dhimmitude by intimidation and cultural retreat ends up being very much the same thing.

We as a nation, we as a world interested in freedom of conscience and equality before the law must speak and act to prevent the retrogression, the suppression of human liberty and annihilation of culture.
