“We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teacher, leave them kids alone”
— Pink Floyd, “Another Brick In The Wall”
Liberals are having a difficult time defending Islam. And so they should after a death sentence was imposed on a Christian woman in Sudan for the high crime of not denouncing her personal savior, Jesus Christ.
Meanwhile, the pro-black and pro-homosexual media, such as CNN, focused almost exclusively on NFL wannabe Michael Sam and on the racist of the century, NBA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. There was only a passing mention that a Sudanese court had sentenced a pregnant woman to death.
Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, 27, was convicted of apostasy (the renunciation of Islam) by a Khartoum court, even though she was born and raised a Christian and married a Christian. The court also convicted her of adultery and sentenced her to 100 lashes because her marriage to a Christian man is considered void under Sharia law.
Two thousand years after killing Christians, all that is missing in some Muslim countries are the Romans and the lions. I would tell my liberal friends this, but I no longer have any. I can’t stand their hypocrisy over their pro-rights stance for women along with their defense of Islam, which at its very core robs women of any rights.
And while there is some outrage in America about Ibrahim, so far we haven’t heard a word from President Barack Obama. Obama has plenty of time on his hands when it comes to congratulating NFLer (soon to be ex-NFLer because he is too short and too slow) Sam, who made a spectacle of himself when he was drafted almost dead last by kissing, crying and shoving cake down his male lover’s throat, or when it comes to commenting on a religion near and dear to his heart, Islam. Yet once again, Islam has been revealed for what it is, a werewolf in shepherd’s clothing.
Americans should be shaken that Obama dedicated the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York last Thursday without one mention of Islam, Muslims or al-Qaida. According to Obama, it is a memorial whose cause was plain-vanilla terrorism, the kind that might spring up in Oklahoma City by homegrown terrorists or in New York City by terrorists from out of the country. I’ve been to the Pearl Harbor Memorial, and I definitely remember the tour guide saying “Japan” and “Japanese” during the tour. But Obama won’t ever make a mention of Islam. He is perhaps too worried about prejudice against his religion or perhaps his Islamic agenda.
Muslims And Their Liberal Supporters Are No Laughing Matter
I suspect Bill Maher is not liked by many of you, but on a typical Friday evening I watch his HBO comedy show so I can see the liberal take on things (best to know one’s opposition) and appreciate his sometimes libertarian views that must make his liberal fans physically sick. Such was the case two weeks ago when Maher and guest Arianna Huffington, the syndicated columnist, got into brouhaha over Islam and its malevolent goals.
Maher was talking to his three panelists about the recent kidnappings of hundreds of Nigerian girls and how little mention there is of the fact that the kidnappers are Islamists. “That (is) the religion at large, (where) women are seen as property, second-class at best, often property,” said Maher.
Huffington argued that it is “dangerous for people to stereotype all Muslims as terrorists.”
Maher answered back: “Where it becomes dangerous is that liberals like yourself do not stand up for liberalism. Liberalism means, one, mostly, equality of women.”
If Maher keeps up this kind of talk, he will be the next Sterling, who is being stripped of his NBA team for sharing his thoughts in what he believed was a private and intimate moment with a parasitic woman who wanted to tape and extort him. Maher doesn’t like Islam, which is mostly black or brown peoples. This must be intolerable to liberals, and even he could be persecuted for sharing his thoughts. But I have a news flash: Millions of minorities don’t like white people either. And I, for one, am not saying they should have to. If you want to hate me, fine. I won’t agree, but I will defend your right with my life to say bad things.
And would someone please stick a secret microphone next to Spike Lee so we can hear what his private conversations are about white people? But do you really think such a recording would ever see the light of day? And if it did, do you think Hollywood would boycott his movies and actors and that set people would refuse to work for him? Do you believe that if he were exposed at his worst, Lee would or even should be washed up? I don’t. I like some of his movies. And even if I didn’t, he should have the right to make them if people are willing to pay to see them. If people don’t like Lee, they shouldn’t pay to see his movies. Regardless, Lee should have his right to privacy. This means that inside his home he should be able to share his worst thoughts on any subject with anyone and not be recorded and then publicly crucified by the media.
Not so, says Kathleen Parker, who makes a living out of writing her opinions for The Washington Post. On April 29 Parker wrote that Sterling had no right to privacy even in his own home:
First the practical: If you don’t want your words broadcast in the public square, don’t say them. The Orwellian taint to this advice is not meant to be harsh but is offered in recognition of the world in which we live. We’re not so much a global village as a small town of gossips.
On a higher note, such potential exposure forces us to more carefully select our words and edit our thoughts. This isn’t only a matter of survival but is essential to civilization. Speaking one’s mind isn’t really all it’s cracked up to be, as any well-balanced person reading the comments section quickly concludes.
Let me get this straight, Kathy. Nobody can speak his mind, especially your readers, and that’s a good thing? So while you get paid big bucks to speak your mind, everyone else should just shut the hell up!
Here is what I want to know: What have you, Ms. Parker, said at your worst private moments when you were tired, drunk or just stupid? Have you never, ever once said the “N” word (isn’t it silly or is it just cowardice on my part that I am intimidated and don’t feel I can actually write that word even though it is on rap radio ad nauseam?)? Or have you never said a derogatory sentence about homosexuals, Mexicans, Republicans, Canadians or the favorite target of the media to which you belong, white, heterosexual men? To prove it, can we implant your body with a recording device. And if you ever once utter such things you consider private, we “judges of society” can have you stripped of your career and property, as is the case with Sterling.
Three Things I Hate Most About Liberals
Liberals seem to see only one side of the coin — their side, which is:
- Pro-homosexual: I want to vomit every time I hear proud to be gay; when did anyone ever say be proud to be straight? And the more demonstrative gays are (ever notice the overt touching and kissing), the more gay pride they have.
- Pro-black: If anyone (especially a straight, white man) ever says anything close to a racist comment, liberals want to hang him in the court of public opinion — so much so that white people are afraid of what they say, while black people can spout off as much as they want.
- Pro-Islam: This is the most dangerous one because it could tie America into a Hundred Years War. And with liberal leaders like Obama, Islam may win it in 20. Muslims are already the fastest-growing segment of the world’s population. And extremism is worse today, according to polls, than it was on 9/11.
All of the above are eating away American values that made this country great. Sorry if liberals think the late 1950s were a terrible period, but I happen to be nostalgic — especially when my feelings are consistent with many positive truths.
Yet Lee told CNN last week that America is never going back to the days of Ozzie and Harriet. I see nothing wrong with the days of Ozzie and Harriet, President Dwight Eisenhower and a dynamo economy. The 1950s were a time when private speech really was private and you could have an opinion and make it public. But that America is being dismantled. And every time the extremists win, the liberals rip away one more brick in our wall.
Yours in good times and bad,
