Showdown in DC on 9/11

Image

This upcoming anniversary of 9/11 is going to be marked with an event in our nation’s capital that will spit in the faces of those lives lost twelve years ago. The organization hosting this event is the American Muslim Political Action Committee. Until just a couple of days ago it was called the Million Muslim March. Now the group thinks that name is a bit too scary, so they changed it to the Million American March Against Fear. Well, I suppose that makes all the difference, doesn’t it? The purpose of this event, according to the organizers, is to protest the persecution and discrimination of American Muslims since 9/11. How blatantly absurd! There is so much wrong with their agenda that I scarcely know where to begin.

The leader of AMPAC is M.D. Rabbi Alem, a self-proclaimed 9/11 Truther who believes Jews really caused the terrorist attack 12 years ago. I suppose there are backwoods places in the world where this malarkey might be believed if it were told enough times, but nobody with more than twelve brain cells could ever buy that. Muslim terrorists, Jihadists, Islamists, radical Muslim monsters were the ones who organized and carried out the attacks on New York City and Washington DC. No amount of deception, distortion or deliberate lies will change that fact. He claims that Muslims have been given a bad rap since then. On the AMPAC website, Alem writes

“In the past 12 years since 9/11 the United States government as failed to protect and promote Constitutional liberties and human life, here and abroad.  We feel that accountability in government has been ignored and the time has arrived to collectively speak truth to power.

Speaking will be experts and individuals on the lack of transparency and questions plaguing 9/11, steady erosion of domestic civil liberties, drone policy and the very dire effect of these on of plight of American Muslims here at home, and Muslim communities globally in the scope of U.S. imperialism, and the modern face of resistance to unmanned aerial surveillance and warfare.”

I challenge Alem to name the ‘erosion of domestic civil liberties.’ If anything, the US government has crippled the freedom and rights of non-Muslim Americans in order to appease the Islamic image, as well as bowing to the far left goons of political correctness. Every day the news offers new evidence of this, of schools that ban the mention of Christianity while teaching the peace-loving religion of Islam, of American anti-terrorism agencies who are not allowed to even show a photo of a known Jihadist because his traditional Arab clothing and turban might send the wrong message about Islam, of lawsuits from CAIR (Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations) attorneys against the US government because Muslims trying to come into the US from Canada are facing extra scrutiny by border agents, of labeling the terrorist act in Fort Hood as ‘workplace violence,’ of being charged with hate crimes for speaking against the Qur’an or their so-called prophet Mohammed, and many more examples of not only American but global pandering to Islam.

ACT For America founder Brigitte Gabriel had plenty to say about the organization planning the Million Muslim March, as quoted from an article on the WorldNetDaily website:

“It is amazing how fast they changed the original language on their website claiming victimhood, bigotry, and unfair treatment since Sept. 11th 2001,” Gabriel said. “Once they were confronted and debated by people like me who pointed out to them that in the last four years alone we have arrested on American soil 226 home grown terrorists. One-hundred eighty six of them were Muslims. Not Jews. Not Hindus, not Buddhist. But Muslims.”

Gabriel says the facts are that Muslim immigrants to the U. S. are responsible for a disproportionally large number of domestic terrorism cases.

“Of all immigrants who have ever immigrated to America since its birth, America never encountered such hatred and terrorism coming out of one faith based group in our country that accounts for less than 2 percent of the American population and is now responsible for over 80 percent of attacks against America,” she said.

“In 11 years since 911, the Islamic American community has not organized a one million man march to condemn Islamic terrorism against America and call Hamas, al-Qaida, Hezbollah, al-Shabaab, and other groups by their names – terrorists,” Gabriel said.

“Instead they are rallying to condemn America for what they call unfair policy here and abroad. It is about time the Muslim American community comes out and condemns every imam’s preaching in mosques throughout America who advocates overthrowing our democracy and inciting hatred against infidels and America,” Gabriel said.

“They should be coming out by the millions supporting America and its policy in eradicating Islamic terrorism, supremacy and violence,” Gabriel said.

The AMPAC protesters won’t be alone, though, and they certainly won’t be able to voice their claptrap, because coincidently, there is going to be a Two Million Biker to DC event happening at the same place and time. In the words of a supporter, Bryan Short, “How appropriate. A million Muslims surrounded by two million hogs!” The day should be interesting.

This is what I think. By the time September 11 comes around, there is going to be a tribute in Washington DC by bikers from all over the country to the 3 thousand lives that were lost in 2001, but there won’t be any Muslim protesters, because they’ll be scared crapless to show their faces. If they do show up with their Death to America signs and their plans to burn the American flag and their Photoshopped pictures of a Jihadist flag flying over the White House and their fist-raising, babble-screaming, bug-eyed mob – if they do think they can get away with it, they will be seriously mistaken. We the American people will not allow it to happen, bottom line.

I will be there, dear reader. I am not a biker, but I am a proud American, a US Army veteran, a Christian and a freedom loving citizen of the world, and I will do my best to chronicle the event as a writer, a historian and a documentarian. Let the Islamists come. I’m willing to bet there will be much more than two million bikers showing up to defend the sacred memory of all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. If you’re coming, I’ll see you somewhere on the National Mall around noon. I’ll be the long-haired hippy with a camera and notepad wearing a black Kangol newsboy cap with gold sergeant stripes on the brim. Let freedom ring!

Fox in the Henhouse

Image

I’ve figured out why the government hasn’t sealed our southern border yet. No, it isn’t because one or both political parties are hoping to lock down the Hispanic vote. It isn’t because it’s too costly or unpatriotic or a logistical headache. Our real problem isn’t with illegal immigrants. We certainly don’t need to worry about terrorists slipping over the unsecure border, either. Why? Because we’ve been infiltrated by the enemy up to our eye teeth. Might as well leave the door open. The fox is already in the henhouse and he’s smack dab in the middle, drooling and licking his chops, deciding where to begin. Sad part is, he’s been in the chicken coop for thirty years or more, and hasn’t even tried wearing a fake beak and feathers. Don’t bother calling the farmer, either. He left the gate open a long time ago. Somebody is going to be dinner.

The fox is an Islamist; an Islamist is someone who believes that there should be Islamic law all over the world – Sharia law, to be exact – and that it should replace all other forms of government. An Islamist isn’t shy about telling you this either. Oh, they’ll water it down, throw neutrally charged phrases at you, and dance around it like it was some pretty bonfire. When you boil all the poop out of it, though, it’s still the active desire to impose Islamic law around the globe. This fact isn’t even a secret. Islamists have been telling the world this for decades, and will have their way through persuasion or force. Here’s the truly scary part, dear reader: they have tried both on numerous occasions and have pretty much learned that the best way to take over a Western country isn’t through violent Jihad. No, that just makes everyone mad at them. Islamists have figured out that they can achieve victory through the subtle infiltration of our legislative, judicial and administrative branches of government. They don’t need to chop down or burn up the tree of liberty. All they have to do is burrow through the roots and into the tree itself, and then eat it from the inside out. The fox only has to make friends with the farmer to gain access to the hen house.

Islamists have been hiding in plain sight among us for years, slowly but surely weaving their way into our government. You know that the democratic process is a bureaucratic juggernaut and that in order for any real change to come, it takes years of constant and steady effort by many dedicated people working at all levels to win popular support. We didn’t abolish slavery or allow women the right to vote overnight. Islamists have figured out that to replace the Constitution with Sharia law, they have to do it gradually so that when it finally happens, we the people won’t be able to counter it. I can hear you thinking ‘there’s no WAY our government would allow those bastards to take us over!’ but it’s already happening, and is so insidious that even now we might not be able to separate the wheat from the chaff.  Islamists have successfully inserted themselves into our system, in practically every department of our government, from the White House to the FBI, from the Department of Homeland Security to the National Chamber of Commerce, from the Pentagon to the platoon, and getting them out will be as hard as extracting a grain of sand from a barrel of grits.

Here’s how bad it is, my friend. Try speaking out against the Islamist agenda (remember, it is the institution of a global Caliphate, or worldwide Sharia law in which Islam is the only religion and government). Try speaking out against it and you will be called an Islamophobe. Try convincing the news media to warn people against it and you’ll be treated with thugish tactics designed to shut you up. Try exercising your First Amendment rights and you will be labeled a racist and hate monger. The Islamist movement has so successfully permeated our culture that if a government employee tries to sound the alarm, he or she is sent to sensitivity training. When Nidal Hasan, a self-proclaimed Islamist, went on a killing rampage in what should have been the safest place for our soldiers, his actions were called ‘workplace violence’ instead of a terrorist attack. When we point out the obvious – that he was engaged in the Islamist-sanctioned act of Jihad – we are accused of pandering to partisan politicking. In April of this year a top instructor for the war college (which trains our officers to defeat our enemies) was fired because he taught that we should wage war against radical Islam. Go ahead and Google ‘Islamism in the US government’ and ‘political Islam,’ then spend an hour or so browsing the sources you trust. It is so big the average person would not believe it is happening under his very nose.

There’s a fox in the henhouse, and it’s hungry. It’s time we arm the poultry.

Being True

When that poor soldier Lee Rigby had his head chopped off by radical Islamists, I was outraged, mortified and emboldened. I visited sites such as the English Defense League and its American counterpart, the United States Defense League. I read books such as Because They Hate by Brigitte Gabriel, Sharia versus Freedom by Andrew Bostom, and The Rage and the Pride by Oriana Fallaci. Having been a Sufi Muslim I had read the Qur’an and had some understanding of its vehemence and totalitarianism. I filled my head and heart with hate toward not only the evil Jihadists, but for the religion itself, what it had done to so many who believed in Islam and what its goal of worldwide Sharia law. For those of you who know me, hatred is not something I specialize in. In fact, I suck at it.

I became aware through my research that the far left and Progressive agenda barreling through the US provided a rich soil for political correctness and submission to the demands of those who want to further the theocracy of Islamic law and life. I have a dear friend in Great Britain and was aware that the government there has all but seceded the nation to radical Islam. I broadened my anger and vitriol to include the political forces that threaten to undermine our great nation.

I decided to create a blog dedicated to writing about the twin threats of Progressivism and Jihadists, because it just didn’t feel right mixing in such serious subjects with my typical lighthearted ramblings. I already had a blog dedicated to sharing my growth as a Christian called Back of the Choir, so I launched Beast by the Horns to concentrate on lashing out at both the far left and radical Islam. Since I was at it, I gave birth to a third blog called Beans on the Grill to house my off-beat and hopefully humorous sense of weirdness. I used my home page as a launching pad for the blogs, and so far it is working well. But there is a problem.

As I mentioned before, hatred and anger are not my strong suites. It is absolutely impossible for a man such as myself to sustain loathing and antipathy toward anyone or anything. Quite frankly, I am such a wretched soul that I must constantly work to keep my face turned toward the infinite and abounding Grace of God, and I just don’t have time for hatred and resentment. I have an acquaintance who always, without fail, points out the things that are wrong with the world. I long ago gave up trying to get him to see blessings instead of problems. He is simply wired to complain. Bless his heart, he is a good man who has been married for over fifty years and has a wonderful and Godly family, but he is a wet blanket. I’m just not like that. Oh, don’t get me wrong, if I spend an hour with this gentleman I walk away fired up and ready to throw my shoes at the wickedness surrounding me. It’s a universal right to bitch and complain. My last article here, On Screaming, was the result of concentrating on what is wrong. Even then I couldn’t maintain my anger. But I know the extent of my own wickedness, and my potential for causing spiritual damage. I know the man I was before I became washed clean by Christ’s atoning blood, and I know that if I reject that and return to my old ways, there will be less than no hope for me. Nothing, I repeat NOTHING is going to diminish my devotion and love for God, not while I have breath in my body. I am acutely aware of my ability to sin. I practiced it religiously for many years. As for myself, whenever I allow hatred to occupy a place in my heart, my heart is diminished. It is one thing to feel angry and express it. It is quite another to harbor it and give it shelter within.

The past few weeks I have alternated my articles between my three blogs. It is as easy as falling down to write something funny, and it is as natural as breathing to share my love and gratitude for Jesus, His sustaining and faithful Spirit and my Father in Heaven. It is, however, as difficult as passing glass through my bowels to generate enough indignation to blast all those political idiots and all those absolutely evil jihadists. Therefore, I’m suspending my regular posts on Beast by the Horns unless the Spirit directs me to vent my feelings about something. Don’t be mistaken, though. I know with every fibre of my being that the threat of Progressivism and radical Islam is real and imminent. There are plenty of brave patriots in the middle of the battle right now, who have what it takes to fight with their words and actions, and I support them wholeheartedly. If called I will join the fray, if it be God’s will for me. For now, however, I’m not going to pressure and force myself to produce fury and ire. If you take this decision as a sign of weakness, you are gravely mistaken. If I’ve helped you understand that each of us contribute toward the cause of liberty, justice and righteousness in our own way, this article has served this purpose.

Use your unique skills to resist and defeat the forces of evil, and know that you are not alone.
