Okay, so I ripped the “Silence, I kill you” off from Jeff Dunham, a ventriloquist comedian that has the most hilarious bit I have seen on terrorism. Of course, it is pretty hard to get a laugh out of such a serious topic and it may not surprise you to learn that I have an opinion about the plans for an Islamic Community Center and Mosque two blocks from ground zero in New York. This is the very place where a piece of the hijacked plane’s landing gear fell from the explosion that rocked one of the towers. For that reason, and that reason only, it has been vacant since 2001. This IS ground zero. Now President Obama has become a staunch defender of the U.S. Constitution. As much as it pains me to admit it, the President is right in saying that the Muslims have the right to build. Now, I wish he extended those same property ownership rights to the wallets of the American people, but nonetheless he in on the mark. What is really at hand here is why the peaceful, caring, loving, kind, religion of Islam does not have anyone speaking out against this (actually, there are a few, but I am talking like 3). I mean, if you were Muslim, wouldn’t you already be completely mortified that someone in the name of your peaceful religion has used it to slaughter thousands of innocent people? It is very difficult for “mainstream” Islam to make a stand at this point because Muslims have had 9 years to make a stand and they have failed miserably. Maybe this is why an overwhelming percentage of American people are against the construction of this Mosque at ground zero.
This is not an issue of religious freedom or even religious tolerance as some have suggested. The real issue comes down to the fact that the Muslim community has done a very poor job at disassociating themselves with radicals in their religion. One could argue it is simply the result of lack of effort. Even the Muslims who condemn terrorism follow it up with…”but you have to understand what America has done to them.” If the American people, regardless of their religious views, would see scores of Muslims publically appalled by the hijacking of their religion (pardon the pun), there would be more acceptance and understanding. This particular Imam (that’s the Priest for you Catholics, Rabbi for you Jews, or Preacher for you Baptists) for the planned Mosque has gone on record as promoting the fine merits of Sharia Law and feels it should be observed in America. I am not sure which part he feels is best. Perhaps the part where woman are stoned to death for adultery. Hmmmm….maybe the part where freedom of speech is strictly forbidden in the criticism of Muhammad and punishable by death. Now isn’t that interesting? The very Amendment in the Bill of Rights which gives these people the right to build a Mosque at Ground Zero is also the same Amendment that is restricted under Sharia Law (Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech…for you average American ignoramuses out there…that’s in the First Amendment). The bottom line is that the people of Islam will not convince America they have a peaceful religion until they stand up against the radical faction within their own religion. My guess is that it is a very hard argument to make given much evidence to the contrary. The bottom line here is that the Mosque at Ground Zero would be a big, giant “up yours” to America from Radical Islam and a constant symbol of their victory. Make no mistake about it folks. There has been a victory against America. In fact, quite a few of them.
I have decided to help my Muslim brothers get their disassociation kicked off with a prepared statement for their use to denounce the radicals in their religion (I would say “and sisters”, but they really don’t roll like that). This is my suggested wording, but they may have their own. The red words are non-negotiable, but the rest can be changed without altering the message. Let me also add that my decision to depict the non-negotiable words in red in no way is intended to parallel that of the words of Jesus Christ in the King James Red Letter Addition of the Holy Bible.
My prepared speech for any Muslim.
“There have been times where we have shown arrogance and been dismissive”….ooops, sorry…wrong apology speech, but as you know, it is not hard to deliver. Let’s try again.
“Over the past 9 years, I have been mortified and embarrassed by the thugs and murderers who have killed innocent people in the name of Allah. In no way did America bring this evil upon themselves with their actions and policies of the past. Muhammad is a prophet of peace and these murderers are desecrating his name. They most certainly are not pleasing to Allah and are not martyrs. I denounce their actions and also denounce Hamas as a terrorist organization. They are not living a life consistent with the teachings of Muhammad. Please do not associate me or my religion with these filthy murderers. I am a proud American and thankful to this country for allowing me to practice my religion without oppression or the fear of reprisal. I understand that many people may associate my religion with these murderers because they claim the name of Islam, but please do not think of me as you do them. Peace be with you and Allah Bless the United States of America.”
I am not sure if they say “Allah bless you” in the Muslim community, but it sounds good to me. Also, the part about being American can be removed for the international version, but there it is. Like most, I could go on and on about this topic, but let me add this. Under Islam, a child born of one Muslim parent is also Muslim. Now, President Obama has publicly stated many times that his Father was Muslim, and yet Obama is a Christian. To me, that sounds like he has rejected Muhammad, which is an offense punishable by death under many Islamic cultures including Sharia. Good thing we live in America, but I sure wouldn’t want those Sharia Law nut jobs anywhere around me if I had rejected Islam.
To lighten the mood, carve out ten minutes and watch this bit from Jeff Dunham called “Achmed the Dead Terrorist.” If you have seen it before, it doesn’t get old.
This has a few months on it, but watch this link of U.S. Attorney General refusing to use the term “Radical Islam.” Folks, we are really in trouble here. I can’t believe these people are running our country.
Okay….back in the media again…blah blah blah. I am just trying to figure out how two gay people getting married are going to impact me one bit. Like I have said before, let them give it a shot. Lord knows us heterosexual’s don’t have a great track record in the last 30 years. In all seriousness, the only reason this subject tweaks me even a little bit is because of the government sanctioning any marriage in the first place, including my own. Marriage is a RELIGIOUS PRACTICE!!!!!! Again, marriage is rooted in religion and nothing else. For that reason, why do any of us, straight or gay, have to get permission from government to get married? Hell, you have to go get a freakin license from the government to get married for crying out loud!!!! Yeah, yeah…don’t give me all that stuff about tax brackets, benefits, etc. because all that stuff came later after the government decided to start giving us permission to get married. Okay…I am calming down now. I hope I don’t have to get a license for all those exclamation marks. My point is that Marriage is a religious practice and government permission intrudes upon the necessary separation of church and state.
Arizona is now enforcing Federal Law
Folks, I know this topic has been reported and blogged to death, but please educate yourself if you are one of the few legal citizens of the United States of America who still thinks this law is racist, illegal, and will lead to racial profiling.
This is a clip of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder condemning the new Arizona immigration law. Keep in mind, he said this BEFORE he made his other remarks in the link below this one.
But later, when asked if he has actually read the law…well….uh…he hasn’t actually read it, but just what he has read in the newspaper. Way to do your homework Mr. Attorney General.
Iran bans western hairstyles, including the Mullet!
Okay, so finally a benefit to an oppressive dictatorship. It’s all business for now on. No more parties in the back.
The 2nd Amendment survives in Chicago, but for the wrong reason
Not too long ago, one of the most violent cities in America was successfully challenged in the Supreme Court. It seems as though it is against the law to own a gun in one of the most violent cities in the country. How can that be? Well, anti gun laws do not reduce crime, they increase it. But anyway, during the presidential debates, in referring to the 2nd Amendment Obama stated, “…but just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can’t constrain the exercise of that right.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWajf5RkDJ8
Uhhhh…that’s sort of what the Bill of Rights is intended to do, which is protect certain rights documented in the constitution and cannot be restricted in the states. Does this guy actually believe himself? Regardless, the U.S. Supreme Court does not see it his way. The case was actually challenging a court ruling where someone was not allowed to keep a gun in their own home. The thing that troubles me the most is that the average American believes the 2nd Amendment exists so that people can protect themselves from bad guys who try to hurt them at home. While that is a nice byproduct, it was not the true intent. The 2nd Amendment exists so people can protect themselves from the government. Plain and simple. Unfortunately, everyone thinks I am a whack job when I say stuff like that, but do your homework and you will find it to be true.
I suppose there is “Free” in “Freedom” after all
Free verses Freedom. Both come with a cost to someone, and the one who benefited without paying the cost is the one who forgets who provides it. That goes for the folks in this country who enjoy freedom, but have not sacrificed to have it, just as it does someone who enjoys “free” anything without sacrificing to get it. Man, I know the first lady is supposed to be off limits, but she just makes it so hard to pass up. In referring to Obama Care, Michele Obama writes, ““Under this new law, all new private plans will provide basic preventive services — things like childhood immunizations and checkups, mammograms, colonoscopies, cervical screenings, and treatment for high blood pressure — absolutely free of charge. No copay. No deductible. No co-insurance needed.” Folks, insurance plans don’t provide anything for free. The people that pay into the plan provide it. Some win, some lose. That’s how insurance works, but not soon once the government is involved. What a disaster. And if you voted for hope and change, you are sure getting it. And there is more to come.Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2010/07/19/first-lady-says-obamacare-makes-her-life-easier/#ixzz0xfA2MrUZ
