Nothing New Under The Crescent…Uh, Sun

“…for a Muslim to keep his word to an Infidel at the expense of opportunities to expand Islamic power is the Islamic equivalent of a mortal sin.” —Andrew Walden

“See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” is commonly used to describe someone who doesn’t want to be involved in a situation, or someone willfully turning a blind eye to the immorality of an act in which they are involved. The Italian version, “Non vedo, non sento, non parlo” (I see nothing, I hear nothing, I say nothing), expresses the Omertà, a code of silence enforced by criminal organizations like the Mafia, ‘Ndrangheta, and Camorra. —Wikipedia

Alternative Media: A term used to describe various information
sources that provide a forum for interpretations of events and
issues that differ radically from those presented in mass
media products and outlets.  — DHS Domestic Extremism Lexicon

The old “See no evil” proverb expresses at the least the attitude of the Obama administration and its domestic co-conspirators toward radical Islam, which is apparently considered less of a threat to our continued existence than tax protesters, bloggers and people who oppose issuing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.  For instance, nowhere in Obama’s Department of Homeland Security dictionary of dubious associations (Domestic Extremism Lexicon) will you find the words “Muslim” or “Islam” like you will “Christian” and “Jewish.”  If Barack Obama had been Commander-In-Chief instead of “Hammering” Chuck Martel at the Battle of Tours (known sadly in jihadi lore as the Battle of the Court of the Martyrs),  Western Civilization would have been extinguished in 732.  Well, better late than never, if ‘progressive’ politicians the ilk of Obama, Bennie Thompson or Keith Ellison get their wish:

Representative Peter King (R-NY), chairmen of the House and Senate Homeland Security committees, told his committee and observers that the U.S. military including military bases, recruitment stations and other armed services facilities are the No. 1 targets for radical Islamist terrorists within the United States.

[…] several Democratic lawmakers rejected the singling out of radical extremists and terrorists who practice Islam.

The ranking Democrat on the House committee, Rep. Bennie Thompson (Miss.), said singling out the one ideology would ostracize members of the armed services and would ignore the possibility of other emerging terrorist groups.  U.S. Military is No. 1 Islamic terrorism target – Canada Free Press

Bennie Thompson’s radical associations would have had him red-lettered for investigation back in more sensible days when the U.S. government actually took internal security seriously:

In 1982 Bennie Thompson served on the National Coordinating Committee of a Communist Party USA front, the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, which was led by leading Party members Angela Davis and Charlene Mitchell.

In 1998, Bennie Thompson, Democrat, was listed as a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. As of February 20 2009, Bennie Thompson was listed as a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

The invitation for U.S. students to earn a free medical education in Cuba dates to June 2000, when a group from the Congressional Black Caucus visited Cuban president Fidel Castro. It was presided over by the then Caucus President James Clyburn, from North Carolina, and was made up of Bennie Thompson from Mississippi and Gregory Meeks from New York.

In May 2005, Congressman Bennie G. Thompson and two of his staff members, Timla Washington and Steve Gavin spent four days in Havana, Cuba, for the purpose of “Cuba business, fact finding. The trip cost $1,298.26 and was paid for by the Christopher Reynolds Foundation. (From KeyWiki)

Truth is, domestic leftist politicians are the real danger we face:

[…] The left’s approach to the war on terror is thus a bit like the childhood game where the toddler covers his eyes and thinks that mommy can’t see her. The illusion may provide a good kick, but ultimately, it’s just an illusion.

…The Muslims are not going to care one wit if America stops fighting the war on terrorists. The Democrat Party can be as sensitive and as politically correct as it wants. We can subject grandmas and small children to random pat downs so as not to offend the sensibilities of people who think women are property and homosexuality is a sin against Allah. But Muslims won’t return the favor. They are not going to think we’re noble and enlightened, they are going to think we’re infidels. And weak infidels at that.

As delusional as Islamic terrorists are, they don’t think America will disappear if they close their eyes. But they do think Americans will disappear if they close their eyes after detonating a bomb vest in a public square.

  1. Bob, listened to Holder testify to the House Judiciary Committee Hearing last week. If there was any question in my mind that the Democrats have lost touch with reality.. It’s gone now,, Some were more concerned about whether or not the AG was really going to to enforce the anti pot laws in their state than they were the Fast and Furious Hearing they were attending.. Holder spent a lot of time saying he had to be selective about where he used his resources along those lines (read Obama friendly states are safe) The few that stayed on topic used F&F as justification for more gun control laws..

    With both Obama and Iran arming the Cartels and laundering money for them, we might find ourselves with a Barbary type government of cutthroats, smugglers, slavers and pirates next door.

      With Iran building bases in Mexico and setting up shop in several of the South American countries, we are in reach of many of their long-range missiles as it is. And then their is the missile that was fired off the coast of California, early this year, no one has explained it. Now they are talking about putting and unmanned border crossing in the Big Bend area of TX. They are literally opening our borders to our enemies. This should be considered treason, but apparently, Obama is not capable of that. Seems the messiah is only a paper messiah when accusations are made, nothing is his fault, but please do not call him on anything, or you are a racist.

    • Bob Mack says:

      These people aren’t really Democrats, GRUMPY—at least, not the kind that were around while I was growing up. These modern-day Jackasses are mostly radicals, socialists or outright communists. And most are as corrupt as Al Capone to boot–more so. At least Al was honest about his dishonesty.

      • Bob in 1960 JFK was a moderate who leaned a little to the left.. Nixon was a moderate who leaned a little to right..My mother used language to describe Adlai Stevenson I never heard her use before (his underwear choices).. And Goldwater (who ran in 64) was considered a little to hawkish.

        Now the liberals would consider Stevenson-pink panties and all, a little to far right.. Kennedy would be be a right wing extremist, Nixon a radical right wing extremist and Homeland Security would have a special division, just to watch Goldwater.

  2. Absolutely correct. I distill it down to this: “ISLAM IS AS ISLAM DOES.”

    Can you imagine, Mr Mack, the reaction — had the tables been turned — to, say, CATHOLICS acting in the fashion of Muslims?

    Each Catholic church would have been invaded years ago since 9/11, their priests arrested, altars destroyed, the Vatican condemned, Catholicism outlawed, its practitioners banded into lists, investigated, arrested, prosecuted — with the results being that the religion would essentially be removed from America. And I don’t believe I’m involving hyperbole when I write this.

    And yet, still, Islam is “just fine.”


    • Bob Mack says:

      You’d think that 1,500 years of jihad would suggest appropriate precautions by Obama and his minions, wouldn’t you? That it doesn’t suggests something about them.

  3. anatheimp says:

    Bob, I was in Egypt recently. It’s pretty obvious, on the basis of the recent election results, that the Arab Spring is turning into an Islamist Winter with no summer in between, something I’ve been predicting almost from the outset.

    I subjected myself to the Holder hearing as well. I am glad someone else agrees with me. “Disconnect” from reality would be too kind. Hope springs eternal that there will be a wake-up call received by the American people.

  7. If Barack Obama had been Commander-In-Chief instead of “Hammering” Chuck Martel at the Battle of Tours (known sadly in jihadi lore as the Battle of the Court of the Martyrs), Western Civilization would have been extinguished in 732.


  8. A lot of people nowadays think of Jefferson as a big wimp. The video you embedded reminds us that this was not the case.

  9. cosmoscon says:

    We fought Communism with extreme prejudice after World War II and we need to do the same with Islam. There are no Islamic countries that we would would want to immulate and the only goal of Islam is world domination. I don’t want my daughter growing up under sharia law.

    What one generation tolerates the next generation embraces. Take a stand now!

    Great post.
