In the on-going struggle for existence which now includes the preservation of our great American way more than ever, we are all advised to act in the way of the conservative. That is, by definition favoring traditional views and values, often opposing change or otherwise expressing a restrained, moderate, or cautious style and as such following age old sage advice. Like when in Rome be like the Romans, leave well enough alone or beware of those who advocate fixing things that are seemingly not broken.
About 2,400 years ago, the Ancient Greeks, while contemplating the removal of a corrupt elected official, began to share a fable by Aesop where a compromised fox refuses a kindly hedgehog’s offer to remove a swarm of blood-sucking flies. The fox reasons that removing the flies that are full and possibly done sucking blood will likely expose him to new hungry ones, much more blood loss and quite possibly death. So better to leave well enough alone or as we say in modern America “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”
According to Time Magazine in January 2019, the same day that the first two female Muslim congressional representatives in history took office, the House voted to permit religious headwear on the floor for the first time in 181 years. The change amended an 1837 rule that was originally intended to ban representatives from wearing hats on the House Floor. After a vote of 234 to 197, Congress members are now allowed to wear head coverings, such as kippahs, hijabs, and turbans. Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) a Somali-American Muslim, became the first member of Congress to wear a religious headscarf on the floor. She celebrated the vote in a tweet. “I thank my colleagues for welcoming me, and I look forward to the day we lift the Muslim ban separating families all over the U.S. from their loved ones.”
In January 2019 CNN said, “You guys came in, freshman especially, to change things. Are you frustrated at all with Democratic leadership at this point not willing to give any money for a border wall. Would you, like your fellow freshman Democrat Katie Hill, like to see some money toward a barrier to get an agreement and get the government up and running?”
Omar responded, “Absolutely not. I believe this is a manufactured crisis and the president, yet again, is throwing a temper tantrum for his quest to get a racist xenophobic wall.”
CNN said “I will just note a point of fact before we move on, that indeed we did see a record number of families illegally crossing the border in December, up 240 percent year over year, as you call it a manufactured crisis.”
The U.S. Congress is the legislative branch of the federal government divided into the House of Representatives and the Senate, primarily responsible for making laws. One main duty of a congressman is to introduce bills to somehow improve the quality of life for their constituents and all Americans to the appropriate subcommittee for review. If accepted, the bill goes to a full committee and then debated by both the House and Senate. If it passes these hurdles, the bill goes to the president for his approval or veto. Fundamental to successful legislation is Western decorum or appropriate polite public behavior.
Elected officials are certainly free to speak in any rude, mean or nasty way they wish to get their point across but any unacceptable behavior is generally kept in check by the court of public opinion and their pending judgement on election day before their constituents. Most members of congress, especially freshman, clearly try to behave their best in an obvious effort to serve their districts the best they can as they learn how the game is played. To begin one’s congressional service with a blatant unsubstantiated charge questioning the integrity of US Senator Lindsey Graham was so unusual that even the legacy media took notice and called her out.
In January 2019 Omar told CNN, “He is somehow compromised to no longer stand up for the truth and to make sure that he is fighting to protect the oath that he took in serving the American people.”
CNN said,“That’s quite a charge to make. You say you are pretty sure based on what evidence, what facts? That’s a remarkable comment to make about a sitting U.S. senator.”
Omar responded, “The evidence really is present to us. It’s being presented to us in the way he’s behaving.” CNN said “But that’s not evidence. That’s your opinion but now as a sitting member of Congress, as you have tweeted, ‘They got him on this.’ Again, just based on what evidence congresswoman?”
Omar responded “My tweet was just an opinion based on what I believe to be visible to me and I’m pretty sure there are lots of American who agree on that.” CNN said “I do also want to ask you about your comments on Israel to remind people what you tweeted about Israel in 2012. During the offensive in Gaza, you wrote ‘Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.’ You’ve commented a lot since then trying to explain what you meant by that. And I wonder just what your message is this morning as the first on our Game Changer series to Jewish Americans who find that deeply offensive?” Omar responded “Oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish Americans.”
Okay Rep. Omar then please allow me a brief attempt to explain how your comments are definitely offensive to all civilized people and especially Jewish Americans. Considering 1300 years of chronic Islamic antisemitism with jihad-imposed enslavement and sporadic mass-murder, all reasonably educated people, especially Jews are well aware of muslim hatred and have extremely good reason to be seriously offended by all racist comments from muslims especially those emanating from the US Congress.
In a 2019 Geller Report titled “Hebron 1929, Tlaib-Omar 2019, and the Jew-Hating, Jihadist-Marxist Alliance,” Dr. Andrew Boston writes that 90 years ago, late August, 1929, the Beatrice Nebraska Daily Sun proclaimed, “MOSLEMS SATE BLOOD LUST. Even Little Children Die By Knife in Jehad.” This brief report conveyed with grisly accuracy the Arab Muslim jihad depredations against the Jews of Hebron, which began with the isolated stabbings (one fatal) of two yeshiva students on Friday, Aug. 23, followed by a raging massacre the next morning, during, which 66 Jews were butchered within two-hours. In practically every instance, death was caused by swords or knives. Even young children of two and three years, many of them girls, did not escape the savagery of the attack.
According to Breitbart in August 2018, the George Soros-funded J Street, even as a leading critic of Israel, reversed its endorsement of Rashida Tlaib, the Democratic Party candidate for Congress in Michigan at the time because she advocated slashing U.S. aid to Israel, called for a one-state solution and expressed support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Palestinian activists routinely use the one-state solution phrase to refer to a state that replaces Israel.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, racism is defined as racial prejudice or discrimination or an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race, or their supposed characteristics. Since the Jewish State of Israel is synonymous with the Jewish race and Jewish religion then any generalization referring to ‘the evil doings of Israel’ or replacing the Jewish state is, by definition, a racist statement. The United States Constitution was designed to govern a predominantly God fearing Judeo-Christian people clearly able to trace their success to both religions.
All Americans must at least understand their basic connection to the 10 commandments given to Moses, a Jew and know that the first five books of the Bible are revered by all Orthodox Jews and Christians and is also the reason why both religions are referred to by Islam as the people of the book. Known as the Torah by Jews and the Old Testament by Christians, these five books are considered to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship between God and humans. So calling Israel racist names equally insults Americans as we are forever locked in a tolerant brotherhood and sensible alliance against all mass murderers.
According to the Des Moines Register in January 2019, US Rep. Steve King denied allegations that he supports white nationalism and white supremacy after a recent New York Times article tied the Iowa Republican to white nationalist rhetoric. King asked “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization, how did that language become offensive? Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”
King responded in a news release and condemned white nationalist and supremacist ideologies. “I want to make one thing abundantly clear. I reject those labels and the evil ideology that they define. Further, I condemn anyone that supports this evil and bigoted ideology which saw in its ultimate expression the systematic murder of 6 million innocent Jewish lives.” King also said he still identifies as “an advocate for Western civilization’s values” and a “Nationalist.”
Years ago, my parents schooled us in the phrase ‘people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones’ which was understood to mean that one should be conservative in voicing negative judgement on others for offenses you yourself are guilty of. And we all knew that Mark Twain said it is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. So naturally, condoning those who advocate Islamic jihad and the replacement of Israel while referring to the evil doings of Israel seem to me to be clear evidence of bigotry.
CNN said “Do you think that Rep Steve King should be censored?” Omar responded “Yes. I think its really important in a moment, in a time in our nation’s history where racism and bigotry is rampant that we take a bold stance. I am one that is for restoration and one that believes in restorative measures and I hope now that that wasn’t followed through with that this serves as an opportunity for the congressman to make amends and move away from the hateful speech that he has partaken in.”
So far, in our four part series called Racist Name Calling, we first identified this technique as a way to distract the public while either political Islamists or leftists make their selfish grab for power and then further illuminated the tactics of the left in part two. In this third episode, we’ll define the Islamic threat and further explain why some politicians and leftist journalists keep calling people, especially the President of the United States racist? I’m Matt Tullar and here’s my opinion.
Perhaps Omar and Rep Tlaib will also support restorative measures in congress to improve and protect the lives of their constituents and introduce bills that condemn and contain Dawa, Sharia, and Jihad since these are all not only examples of rampant racism and bigotry but also ideology incompatible with the American trilogy of In God We Trust, Liberty, and E Pluribus Unum.
Dawa, which means to plead or to call non-Muslims to Islam or medicine in Swahili is actually specific instructions for the methodical Islamic indoctrination or forceful cure for the conversion of non-Muslims to Islam from within. To infiltrate the families, the communities, the grade schools, the universities, the government, the media and the prisons with the ancient system of Islam where Sharia Law and Jihad are the basic justification for violence and murder of nonconvertible non-believers when the time is right.
Shortly after testifying before the Senate Homeland Security Committee in June 2017 in a hearing titled Countering Violent Extremism, Ayaan Hirsi Ali appeared on the Hoover Institute YouTube program called “Uncommon Knowledge” to discuss Dawa & Political Islam. Her life story reads like a perfect set of reasons why Islam is not a religion of peace and requires a significant reformation before it can be trusted anywhere in the world especially here.
“Uncommon Knowledge” host Peter Robinson said, “Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born in Somalia in 1969. In 1992, she fled an arranged marriage escaping to the Netherlands. From 2003 to 2006, she served in the Dutch Parliament, warning about the incompatibility of radical Islam with the Western way of life. In 2004, she received international attention when the filmmaker Theo van Gogh, her friend and collaborator, was murdered. Van Gogh had directed “Submission,” a short film that Ali wrote about the oppression of women under Islam. The murderer, a radical Muslim, used a knife to pin a death threat for Ali to Van Gogh’s body. In 2006, the Dutch Minister for Immigration attempted to revoke Ali’s citizenship. The courts ultimately upheld Ali’s citizenship but she resigned from the Dutch Parliament and moved here to the United States. Ms. Ali is the author of a number of books including the 2007 volume Infidel, the 2015 work Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation and published this year, The Challenge of Dawa, Political Islam as Ideology and Movement and How to Counter It. Ms. Ali is a fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford. Ayaan Hirsi Ali welcome.”
Ali responded, “Thank you Peter, thank you for having me.”
Robinson said, “My pleasure. The nature of the problem: Ayaan Hirsi Ali testifying before Congress this past spring. Quote, two successive administration’s, you’re talking about those of George W Bush and Barack Obama, two successive administrations have approached the problem of political Islam with a completely flawed strategy. The illusion that a line could somehow be drawn between Islam, a supposed religion of peace adhered to by a moderate majority, and violent extremism engaged in by a tiny minority. Were you telling Congress that Islam isn’t a religion of peace?”
Ali responded, “I was telling Congress that Islam is part religion and part a political philosophy and that if you focus only on the religious part, praying, fasting, I don’t see anything but peace. If people want to pray and fast and be together peacefully, you know have their rituals, I think that’s protected and I don’t think that that necessarily leads to any kind of violence. You may object to it if you’re not religious but it is religion as we understand it as the founding fathers as the framers of the Constitution might have understood it. But then there is the major part of Islam which is a political philosophy. It’s a prescription for how society ought to be built. How society ought to be furnished, governed, and that philosophy is a not compatible with our American constitutional liberal democracy or any other secular type of government and that’s what we need to be discussing. It’s a set of ideas, a set of principles and values and there are people who are committed to not only practicing it but also to promoting it and some of them are so committed to it, it’s not enough for them to establish it within their own societies. They want it to rule the whole world.”
Robinson said, “You explained to Congress and again in this book that we’re making a terrible mistake by looking at acts of violence in the Middle East and overlooking Dawa as it is taking place here in the United States itself. Let me quote your testimony. ‘Dawa is to the Islamists of today what the long march through the institution’s was to 20th century Marxists. Explain that.”
Ali replied, “The establishment of mosques, of Islamic centers that are paid for by governments like Saudi Arabia and Qatar to promote a belief system that is hostile and that is designed to replace the existing American system. That is that much. It is gradual. It is a march through the systems, through government, through the media, through education, through the family, and I’m not making these things up. What I have done is I’ve taken, and I really want to share this with your viewers because we live in the information age. You can access all this information. You can get these Dawa manuals and just read for yourself how they set out their strategies. Getting into campuses. Establish Muslim student associations. The Muslim student associations are then given tools and tactics to Islamize that particular institution and the same for government, same for media, and it’s working. It’s working because right now you cannot discuss political Islam. It’s being made a taboo. A term Islamophobia has been invented that makes you, especially I’m talking about a white man, it uses your own vulnerabilities against you because the minute you start to question their goals, their objectives you’re not having a conversation about those particular facts. We’re going to have a conversation about your bigotry right because we live in a society now that you know values I don’t know what to say but it claims there can be no bigotry.”
Be sure to look for our fourth and final episode of “Racist Name Calling” where we will explore and compare Sharia with the attitudes of the left and summarize these serious threats to our great American way.
