Defining Hate in the United States

 

When looking into this subject, there were a number of interesting findings which might cause one to pause and wonder about the why, who, and impetus behind things going on here. One of the first items was that there appear to be far more left leaning groups pointing fingers than right leaning groups. On the other side of that coin and unsurprising was that there appear to be more right leaning groups identified as hate groups than left leaning groups. The one item which everybody agreed upon was that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) appears to be the self-appointed hate group identifier. There was also an amount of disagreement about whether this was a balanced and appropriate group to be trusted. The left leaning groups all unanimously applauded the SPLC efforts and findings having virtually no problems with almost anything stated by them while most right leaning groups gave the SPLC credit for doing a difficult job but insisted on pointing out that they had missed a number of definitions, especially on their “Hate Map” (see below). All the varied commentary on the “Hate Map” from any direction all had some glaring omissions which we, of course, took exception to and will now list. The hate groups missing consist of almost all anti-Israel, anti-Zionist groups and but very few anti-Semitic groups. Glaringly absent were BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions on Israel and Israeli products), BLM (Black Lives Matter who have been rabidly guilty of all three forms of anti-Semitism), Nation of Islam, Free Gaza (who organize the flotillas to attempt to break the legal arms blockade of Hamas and Islamic Jihad), Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER who protest almost everything Israel and Zionist), Al-Awda (the largest Palestinian-American grassroots organization based in California), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Friends of Sabeel-North America (anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic group demanding the eradication of Israel denying the Jews are entitled to a homeland and supporting replacement theology), International Solidarity Movement (ISM who support and aid Hamas and the PLO and have been caught using United Nations ambulances to ferry terrorists and munitions in Gaza), Jewish Voice for Peace (decidedly anti-Israel and largely anti-Netanyahu actively supporting the leftist parties in Israel to the point of interfering in Israeli election campaigning against the sitting government in the media between elections in attempts to weaken the Likud and Jewish Home parties as well as any Zionist or religious parties), Muslim American Society (MAS who are extremely active on American campuses pushing the Palestinian claims to all of Israel from the River to the Sea Palestine must be free is one of their rallying cries), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP are actually an arm of MAS and was founded by a former MAS member) and finally, if the 2012 Democrat Party Convention (see video below) is any indicator, a fairly significant segment of the Democrat Party could also make the list and we suspect parts of the Republican Party as well. Unfortunately for Israel and the American-Israeli alliance which has been strong since a relatively rocky start where one could point to 1969 as the turning point where the United States began full support of Israel and the two nations have shared technological defense discoveries but that appears to be weakening after a long run. It was said by Henry Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston, as part of the Treaty of Adrianople, “I say that it is a narrow policy to suppose that this country or that is to be marked out as the eternal ally or the perpetual enemy of England. We have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual enemies. Our interests are eternal and perpetual, and those interests it is our duty to follow.” Perhaps the wise man has a point, no permanence between nations except as serve the immediate needs of each nation.

Hate is a difficult subject at any time and even more sensitive in the United States at the moment as charges of institutional hate are being brought against conservatives in general and the Republican Party and associated groups in particular. The media and some entertainment individuals have harped on this subject refusing to allow anything to calm after the horrendous display in Charlottesville a number of weeks back. The coverage of the violence there has been one sided in the mainstream media with an opposing view of a different tone coming from conservative talk personalities. There has been one area of agreement from both sides, namely that the Nazis, KKK and white supremacists are all unjustifiable hate groups who have no legitimate place at the table in American society. Where the left and right differ is the level and amount of support these fringe groups presumably have. According to the right leaning talk and opinion hosts and editorialists, these groups are marginalized by the conservatives and are a fringe area which has no power and very few followers and are given no quarter by conservatives and are a disgrace to all Americans. According to the left mainstream media, these groups are pervasive throughout the society and rule the conservative movements and dictate policy to the Republican Party and have a very strong showing at all right leaning events and are within all the right leaning groups almost without exception. Obviously, both sets of commentary cannot be valid; either they are a marginalized group of outcasts and are small in number or they can be found all throughout the conservative groups and rule the roost. Here we have exactly similar argument as was presented about the SPLC and their objectivity. Where you stand on either issue, we are willing to bet that you either support the conservative or the leftist side of the argument on both. We would be starkly surprised to find people taking opposing sides on these two issues, though we must assume such is possible.

 

Hate comes in different packages within any society and it will never be eradicated. Some hatreds are actually valid, though such strong feelings are rare. We can assume that cancer is universally hated, as are most diseases and illnesses. But these obvious items are also not areas of contention within our societies. Where hatred becomes a problem is when one group within the society holds such feelings for another group within the society. Often such feelings are mutually felt as if a group hates your group; it is human nature to hate that group in return. It takes a rare breed of people to resist such a reaction when targeted by hatred. These are the kinds of hatred which if we were to be a better people we could find resolutions to such feelings. Some of these hatreds go back hundreds if not thousands of years and are passed on from parent to child almost in their mother’s milk. Anti-Semitism is just such hatred as it has a history which reaches back before written history. Anti-Semitism has such a pernicious nature that we recognize it in the story of our liberation from bondage in Egypt when towards the end of the Seder dinner service we state, “In each and every generation they rise up against us to destroy us. And the Holy One, blessed be He, rescues us from their hands.” The validity of that ominous prediction is absolutely bone chilling terrifying. If one were to follow the entirety of the history of the Jews, they would be capable of identifying some atrocity perpetrated against the Jewish People either within Europe or the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) going back to before Islam and Christianity took turns persecuting or expelling Jews. Even the history of the United States has its examples which include but are not limited to the Order Number 11 issued by Major General Ulysses S. Grant on December 17, 1862, during the American Civil War which ordered the expulsion of all Jews in his military district, comprising areas of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky. The order was subsequently reversed by President Lincoln but not before much of the Jewish population had been dispossessed of their lands and property. Also there was the refusal by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt who in 1939 refused to permit any of the refugees to enter the United States from the ocean liner the M.S. St. Louis which was carrying over nine-hundred Jews fleeing Nazi Germany forcing the ship to return to Germany where the Jews were sent to concentration camps. Neither episode would make any rational person’s list of memorable events about which to be proud. And that is where we can get to a definition of hate which both groups could probably live with. Hate is any action which in general a population would rally against and refuse to grant it their support. With this definition, it requires that the population as a whole to concur that something is contributing to hatred before making that judgement. After all, would not being able to identify and define hate be preferable to allowing each group to get together and decide who they wish to call outcasts of society with an accusation of being part of a hate group. If any small group could decide who are parts of a hate group, then we would all soon find ourselves accused of hate. To accuse a group of being a hate group should be something taken carefully and with a general consensus. And not to worry, Nazis, the KKK, and White Supremacists would all easily qualify as hate groups despite the accusation that the conservatives are all members of such groups because that accusation is pure politicizing hate, and that is one thing which must be avoided at all costs unless your aim is to tear the fabric of American society asunder and turn brother against brother once more.

Victory Caucus and Daniel Pipes Demands Hitting Deaf Ears

 

Speaking in concert with the Victory Caucus, Daniel Pipes, Philadelphia-based Middle East Forum President, stated speaking to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, “After more than a century, the conflict is really over. As an American, I would like my government to say to the Israeli government, ‘Do what you need to do to convince the Palestinians they lost.’” Thank you for your great observation of the Israeli victory, Mr. Pipes, but telling Israel she has won the battle will not end the war. Even convincing the majority of Palestinian Arabs that they have lost and they need to face facts and make peace at long last will also not suffice. As a matter of fact, the main people you need to tell are not even residing in the Middle East but reside everywhere else plus there is the problem of those in the Middle East who will never give up the war because this is no ordinary war. The first group you need convince of your point are a lot closer to Philadelphia than they are to you here meeting in Jerusalem, they reside in Washington D.C., and that is the American government and in particular, the State Department. Then you need to convince the Europeans that they too have lost and no matter how much treasure and Euros they send the Palestinian Authority (PA), Fatah, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and whomever else they are supporting to rid them of Israel has also failed. Then there is Russia, George Soros and the Sunni and Shiite Muslims the world over. What you need understand, Mr. Pipes, this is not a normal war and there are people and an entire industry built around the destruction of Israel and as long as the cash continues to flow, they will continue to murder innocent Jews whose only crime against the world is residing in their ancient homeland, or at least the two-thirds of their ancient homeland they have been able to hold for themselves. That is the problem and the reason the war will not end quite yet, the world is not ready to surrender to the existence of a nation belonging to their favorite excuse for failure, the Jewish People.

 

The Europeans want Israel gone and their Jews back so they can routinely throw them out of one nation and then the next until the Jews have traveled in a circle right back to the place they started with their money and belongings stolen from them a dozen times as they were sent into exile time after time after time. That was the fate of the Jews in Europe. The Arab and Muslim world had a different means of doing the same thing, they allowed their Jews to remain in place and simply raised the Jizya (tax on non-Muslims paid so they do not murder you for your audacity to remain different) on the Jews to the point that they took all their cash and other items of worth and then relieved the tax allowing them to rebuild their reserves before repeating the exercise. Thus far, the United States has not used either method but the levels of anti-Semitism in the United States were only lessened about a little over a half-century ago and already are showing definitive signs of rising once again. Jews were free to be considered equals in the United States until the Civil War when both sides claimed the Jews aided their enemies and were this suspect to the point that General Grant gave General Order No. 11 on December 17, 1862 ordering the expulsion of all Jews in his military district, comprising areas of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky. The order was issued as part of a Union campaign against a black market in Southern cotton, which Grant thought was being run “mostly by Jews and other unprincipled traders. An outcry by members of Congress and the press, at President Abraham Lincoln’s insistence, Grant revoked the General Order on January 17, 1863. Still, the result was that thousands of Jews lost their lands, homes and all valuables and many were refused return by their former neighbors complaining that they were criminal undesirables. It seems that before the State of Israel was refounded after a near two-thousand year erasure, the safest and most fair treatment of Jews was in the Far East in Japan, China, India and the Philippines. Japan even protected their Jews from the Holocaust despite their alliance with Germany. The only European yeshiva to survive the war, the Mir Yeshiva, did so through Japanese assistance. So, despite the world’s considerable efforts to destroy the tiny State of Israel, Jews are still likely safest right here in Israel so perhaps we will remain in our ancient homeland as long as we are able and Hashem allows.

 

Israel is the 149th nation by size out of the 195 listed here yet is the first nation mentioned by most world leaders when the question of the greatest troublesome spot in the world. What makes this so ridiculous is the reason that Israel is considered to be the number one hot spot of turmoil on the globe is simply, her belligerents are receiving the most money from the world than any other place and yet Israel remains strong and free. Israel is the sole nation which the United Nations had an institution, UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East), dedicated to the support of and education for the continuation of the combined Arab effort through the PA, Fatah, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terror groups to destroy her and annihilate her people. Additionally, the Europeans have a plethora of dedicated NGO’s which they register as Israeli though are funded primarily through the European Union and the individual European nations which operate to spread any forms of information designed to disparage and destroy the nation of Israel.

 

Further, the PA states in their charter not that they seek a state of Palestine but that they will use that demand in order to destroy Israel even if it must be done in stages. And the PA is not the worst as Hamas has in their charter not only the destruction of Israel but also the annihilation of the Jewish People worldwide. Such an economic structure, which dwarfs every other financial effort of the world except for the Defense spending by the United States and possibly Russia and China, cannot be claimed to have failed as long as the cash flows and there are individuals and groups making millions skimming funds right off the top. Hamas just had some leaders retire as they had amassed over one-billion dollars each and no longer wished to risk being targeted by the Israelis so they took their ill-gotten gains and faded into the sunset. They were replaced by younger and hungrier men who will now begin to amass their fortune only to reach a point where they retire and the next set of leaders will gorge themselves on the cash flow of hundreds of billions if not trillions or even tens of trillions per year of which they can easily steal ten percent. Further, these groups all have education systems, which train their youth to be terrorists and murder Israelis except they more often than not state Jews instead of Israelis because the argument is not with the Christians, Muslims, Baha’I and other religions, their desire is to murder Jews.

 

Mr. Pipes, the objective to end this insanity is to first end the desire throughout much of the world for the eradication of the Jewish people. To do this one will also have to rid the world of a movement which has existed since the dawn of history to return to the hedonistic ways of barbarism where the rules of the jungle and survival of the fittest reigns supreme and no longer is man condemned by his conscience as Judeo-Christian ethics will have been abandoned. This was part of what Hitler offered and was taken up on with great glee as he mesmerized a people with the concept of the end of Christianity and the death of the Jewish invention of the conscience (see video below). The reason for the destruction of the Jewish People is simply, if the Jews are destroyed, then Christianity also becomes vulnerable. The immediate reaction of people to this claim is to believe that the loss of the Jewish People would actually make Christianity stronger, but that is not true, as if the Jewish People are destroyed, especially now that Israel has been established once again, that would invalidate the promises of Hashem. Once you have proven that Hashem made false promises, you have destroyed the existence of Hashem. Without Hashem, there can be no Christianity as their faith still rests with the same Hashem, the same G0d as the Jews worship. The end of the Jewish People also destroys Christianity as the G0d of Abraham, Isaak and Yaakov is also to Whom Christian worship is intended. The main winner is Islam as the religion born of Avram, Ishmael and Muhammad as Ishmael was born to Avram and Sari’s handmaiden, Hagar, before their names were changed by Hashem to Avraham and Sarah when they entered into His covenant to form a peoples from their lineage of Isaak who also received this covenant through his son Yaakov, while Esau also received a kingdom. This shows how Allah and Hashem are not the same, they are different and thus Islam is not an Abrahamic religion but rather an Avramic religion from Avram who was still to receive the covenant with Hashem at some later point.

 

 

So, this war is not over Mr. Pipes because the forces, which desire the end of Hashem, have not yet surrendered and are unlikely to ever surrender until the coming of the Messiah. The main providers of the cash flow are the Europeans in every form imaginable, the United States in their aid to those nations and entities, which are allied to destroy Israel, and the United Nations, which has turned from a power for peace, and the benefit of humankind into an organization hijacked to bludgeon Israel into a bloodied corpse. This has been proven for years by the United Nations Human Rights Council and their Agenda Item 7 that mandates the UNHRC debate Israeli human rights abuses against the Palestinians during each of its sessions. This debate is a denunciation of Israel that has the position of automatic guilt by Israel simply for not committing suicide and surrendering totally before the wishes of the Arab world as channeled through the PA and Hamas mostly. This is simply the demand to denounce Israel as a matter of natural action without need for debate or proof of wrongdoing, Israel is guilty because Israel exists. Then we have UNESCO that is deciding that Israel has no claims to anything related to Israelite or Jewish history and is erasing Israel one edict at a time. Thusfar the UNESCO declarations have decided that there is only Islamic historical connections and absolutely, according to UNESCO, no Jewish or Israeli connection to the Temple Mount, the Western Wall and the Tomb of the (Israelite) Patriarchs. These are in addition to the General Assembly and almost two-hundred nations all recognizing the Arab State of Palestine which by law would, like Saudi Arabia, be Judenrein and which has no defined borders, does not meet the minimal standards under international law for being a nation, and has as its only ambition the destruction of another member nation of the United Nations and violates the United Nations Carter Article 80.

 

While Israeli Arabs of all faiths have universal rights identical to those of Israeli Jews and serve in the Knesset and are judges including having served on the Israeli Supreme Court including current permanent Justice Salim Joubran, Jews in the Arab and Muslim controlled world face a different prospect. At this other end of this spectrum, the following sixteen nations refuse entry to those with Israeli passports and may also refuse entry to those with an Israel stamp on their passport are Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Libya , Algeria, Bangladesh, Brunei, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Oman, Pakistan, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Lastly, many Arab nations in order to avoid disclosure of their having driven the Jews almost completely from within their borders will list that Jews make up 0.1% of their population thus allowing the claim that the Jews were not forced, harassed into, or otherwise expelled into leaving their homes and often most of their belongings and all financial equities and assets behind but simply decided to move to France, the United States or Israel, the three largest destinations of the Jewish populations throughout the MENA area (Middle East and North Africa) which is also the range where the majority of the Arab and Muslim influences reside. These deportations by whatever means were carried out largely between 1950 and 1960 by which time the few remaining Jews were most often quite old and often cared for and resided in one of the Synagogues remaining in these nations, many of which are quite old dating back to before the arrival of Islam in some cases. Many of these Synagogues have since been repurposed as museums or transformed into Mosques or simply torn down to make room for new buildings.

That is the reality that nobody cares to ever discuss when talking about the Israeli population, that half of the Israeli people are descendants from Arab countries and not Europeans. The sad thing is if you were to ask the average European or American, actually almost any Westerner, where the Jews of Israel originated, their answer would be Europe. This is why you hear calls for the Jews to return to Germany, Poland and the United States, as did American Arab White House reporter Helen Thomas (see video below), not realizing that half the population came from Arab nations who would never accept them in a return and a goodly number families have lived in Israel, many in Jerusalem, for as far back as they can remember or have records. Another canard is that Israel is a racist society of white people. In November of 1984, the decision was made to go forward with Operation Moses and beginning November 21, 1984, Israel involved the Trans European Airways to transport some 8,000 Ethiopian Jews from Sudan via Brussels to Israel, the efforts ending January 5, 1985. Then there was Operation Solomon, the covert Israeli military operation to airlift Ethiopian Jews to Israel from May 24 to May 25, 1991 using non-stop flights of 35 Israeli aircraft, including Israeli Air Force C-130s and El Al Boeing 747s that transported 14,325 Ethiopian Jews to Israel in 36 hours. This puts an end to accusations of an all white Israel as when you include the Arabian Jews and the Jews from India that include the Bene Israel, the Cochin Jews, the Baghdadis from Iraq and Syria, and finally the Bnei Menashe, then you have added an entire range of racial peoples which easily balances out the whole population and negates the accusation.

 

 

So, Mr. Pipes, though Israel may have militarily won the conflict, as long as Mahmoud Abbas along with Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezballah, Bashir al-Assad, Islamic State, Iran and other Islamic supremacists are receiving funding or have their own funding and desire the destruction of Israel or the Jewish People there will be no surrender by the leadership of these groups and nations. The PA will continue to fund terrorists and pay their families if they are killed while murdering or attempting to murder Israelis, whether the target is Jews, Christian, Muslims or any Israeli or person within Israel and thus Israel is responsible for their safety, and pay the terrorists in the prisons serving sentences for the murder of Israelis, then this war of attrition will not end. Currently the PA and Hamas, in conjunction with UNRWA, run schools that train the children to be terrorists and make martyrdom appear to be wonderful and a means of providing for one’s family. There are claims the majority of the PA economy is based on the payments made to terrorists and their families. The murder of Israelis is the major industry making a profit in the PA and you are telling us that we won is ridiculous. The terror continues and the children ever younger are coming into Israel by any means necessary and then attempting to kill the first people with whom they come into contact. If they can drive, they ram their vehicle into crowds at bus stops or waiting to cross a street, which is why Israel had placed barriers to prevent such attacks. Others just take as large as a knife they can find in the kitchen and head off to stab Israelis indiscriminately. No, Mr. Pipes, this war is not complete and the PA leadership does not care if they have lost, there are still Israelis to murder and money to be skimmed off or otherwise distributed to keep everything continuing, especially the murdering of Israelis. We are afraid that in the end there will be only one sign that the war is over, when the Palestinian people rise up and remove the lunatics who currently are leading them to ruin. They take every possible step to make earning a living next to impossible unless you are connected with the government. The government only pays people who are related to the leaders or have or are killing Israelis. That is their economy in a nutshell. So, you can tell President Trump to instruct Israel to do what is necessary to convince Mahmoud Abbas that he has lost, but be prepared for some serious violence as he will not go quietly and will allow as many of his people to be killed before he leaves, and then he will take a tour around the world claiming the Israelis butchered innocent people and once again Israel will be in the world’s crosshairs. The world loves to hate Israel and as long as they do, Abbas remains in business. Can you convince the Europeans, United Nations, United States (especially the State Department) and the Muslim world that the war is over, the PA lost and they can stop sending this carcass any further money as doing so just prolongs the death spiral? We really wish you luck, but our experience is their hate overwhelms their common sense and decency, but you are free to try. We give you our best wishes and let us know how it goes, please Mr. Pipes. Thank you in advance.

Ill Placed Anger

 

President Obama made it so very clear, Omar Mateen was a ‘homegrown’ and a ‘lone-wolf’ from some unidentifiable deep well of violence which had ‘nothing to do with Islam, the religion of peace.’ The President was quite guarded of what we have come to identify as his precious ideological visions as to what exactly makes up Islam. Of course the President was far less coddling and defensive when it came to those who are not on his team. Here President Obama had pointed and viciously delivered vindictive over their audacity in criticizing his reluctance to tie Omar Mateen’s violent murderous spree naming it as ‘radical Islamist’ sharply attacking with precise words, President Obama shot forth, “For a while now the main contribution of some of my friends on the other side of the aisle have made in the fight against ISIL is to criticize the administration and me for not using the phrase ‘radical Islam.’ That’s the key, they tell us. We cannot beat ISIL unless we call them ‘radical Islamists.’ What exactly would using this label accomplish? What exactly would it change?”

 

If this sounds vaguely familiar, then perhaps we can be of some assistance in identifying the similar phrase and where it came to be used. The culprit was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responding to Republican questions and sniping at her by their insistence to getting what she saw as an statement about Benghazi they could use against her in her coming predicted run for the White House when an exasperated Hillary Clinton lost her temper and let loose a storm brewing, her lips spitting out, “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.” (emphasis ours)

 

Both seeming temper tantrums had something similar, they were both triggered by a refusal to actually name Islam as being at the root of the terrorism and that Islam has a radicalization problem which many on the left wish to refuse recognition and instead would prefer to protect Islam from its own radical elements than anger a growing constituency. These defenders of Islam refuse to allow the recognition that there exists Imams who are radicalizing Islamic believers in frightening numbers. They refute any ties between the Islamic State and Islam which are why they prefer to refer to the Islamic State as ISIS or ISIL without identifying what the first ‘I’ in each set of initials refers. Both were lashing out at political adversaries attempting to deflect their pointed accusations which were presumably attempts to viciously attack all Muslims and those who defend them. These attacks are almost universally aimed at Republicans and Donald Trump specifically. What would be amusing, if it were not for the mounting death toll, have been the opposing claims that those who claim a link between Islam and terrorism are needlessly generalizing thus potentially alienating peaceful Muslims while the other side claims they are refusing any relationship between radical Islam and the majority of peaceful Muslims.

 

Both sides actually agree on one particular item, that it will take the assistance of the majority of Muslims who are peace loving to save Islam. Where they differ is naming the challenge. The conservatives have no difficulty naming the enemy as the radicalized Islamists while the liberals blame misguided individual who uses their Islam as their excuse and there are select Imams who do a disservice to Islam with their radical message. The main differences come down to a single question, is the presumed numbers of innocent and peaceful Muslims really the vast percentage or are they an insignificant minority mostly found in the Western World. Then there are the precious Imams whose ‘sermons’ like those of the American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was targeted for death by the CIA in 2011, are capable of reaching disaffected youths in their native language and turn them into weaponized Muslims in the next killing fields. Orlando was the most recent of these and the most deadly. Before Orlando, Florida there were others including San Bernardino, California on December 2, 2015; Chattanooga, Tennessee on July 16, 20125; Morganton, North Carolina on December 18, 2014; Moore, Oklahoma on September 25, 2014; West Orange, New Jersey, on June 25, 2014; Seattle, Washington, on June 1, 2014 and Skyway, Washington, on April 27, 2014. These places and dates were from “What Makes Islam so Different?” The fact that most, if not all, of us cannot or do not remember these events even had we heard of them, is more a reflection on the media and their attempt to cover up Islamist terrorism as it does not fit their worldview and reflects poorly on President Obama the nation while under his and the Democrats handling of the narrative. By even simply listing these attacks on American citizens makes me guilty of feeding the too pervasive Islamophobia. The insanity becomes all the more perverse when one finds out that Islamophobia is not a fear, rational or irrational, of Muslims but rather the thought crime of implying that Islam could contain a radical and violent faction and that is just plain racist.

 

This is where the United States, almost every square millimeter of Europe and all too many segments of Israeli society have sunk. The leftists have so perverted the waters of communication that relating truths is a social misstep and going there may make you a social pariah which would mean not being invited to the next ten million Brie Cheese and Chianti parties. Oh my, how will we ever survive?

 

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton

 

One thing we have been berated with is that in the upcoming American Presidential race there are two choices; one is sensitive, humane, understanding, loving, caring and simply wonderful while Donald Trump is boorish, impolite, hateful, vindictive and an all-around evil individual, but the media is trying to not be judgmental, simply reporting the facts. The choice is being presented as if one candidate will bring to the world peace and tranquility through intelligent and thoughtful beneficial rule while the other guarantees brash, America first the world be damned and taking the world to war and back to nationalistic barbarity. We see the choice somewhat different. We see one candidate bringing defenseless European socialist madness where the nation will go bankrupt, but not until our grandchildren will be in charge, so live it up while the charade lasts; or nationalist let’s see how much of what was once a great nation can be salvaged and turned away from following the European Union down the rabbit hole into a debt ridden death spiral. It is getting very close to too late and another four years of Obamanomics, and especially eight more years, will take the once great nation which reached from shore to shore with shires of golden wheat in between will fall to a point where feeding her own people may prove difficult as the creditors will take the entirety of our food production as it will be the last morsel with which to repay for the senseless spending. Yes, when it comes to socialism there is too much of what appears to be a good thing because, as Margaret Thatcher said, “The problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other people’s money.” The United States long ago ran out of other people’s money and has been living on monopoly money for quite some time as they found a new source; they electronically just kept adding money to the supply. This works for as long as interest rates remain near, at or below zero but once interest falls below zero the entire house of cards and fiat money crashes and the people resort to burning the money come winter as that is cheaper than paying the utility bill.
