Over the past several weeks, the world viewed aghast the recorded images of Middle Eastern Islamic terrorists ritually beheading bound and hapless victims; first a US journalist, then another, and then a British aid worker. All fell prey to butchers who apparently believe they serve their god by dishing up infidel craniums as a loyalty offering.
Meantime, here in the US, far away, fast asleep and very far-removed from that sort of thing – existing, as it were, in our insular bubble of American freedom, democracy, and security – these things wouldn’t and couldn’t touch us. Not here.
But the world’s busy little bees have conspired and conspired and conspired. And the vision we beheld of delicately balanced safety and liberty, in truth, the pretentious idea that our civilized society would be spared the horrors from abroad, crumbled and became a mere pipe dream, an artifice as it were.
Looking back, what happened one crisp September morning just over 13 years ago, to many is long forgotten. To others who do remember, it continues to be downplayed as the actions of a select group of fringe radicals. And still to others, an outward symptom of a festering sickness, one that unfortunately cannot be cured or dismissed so readily.
Consider too the 2010 Christmas Day terror attack executed by a baby-faced Nigerian Muslim on a plane bound for Detroit. The infamous “underwear bomber” was quickly labeled an “isolated extremist” by the commander-in-chief, who rendered the opinion practically before the last flicker of the embers of the bomber’s scorched unmentionables died out. Then came the confounding remarks from his Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano who declared, regarding the very near miss, “…the system worked.”
Napolitano was correct in that someone’s system worked, but it certainly wasn’t the US’ security system. No, it had failed – again. Indeed it was the Islamofascist terror system, with an assist from the politically correct who put not wanting to ethnically profile or offend, above the value of innocent lives, THAT tag-team of liberalism and lunacy is what had triumphed once more.
And now, to quote Malcolm X and the good reverend Jeremiah Wright, “The chickens have come home to roost.” Many blame the current phenomena on America’s self-imposed role as the world’s police force. “If we would just butt out of Middle Eastern affairs,” goes the argument, “they would leave us alone.” Without scrutinizing this concept too deeply, even if there were any truth to the point – and there isn’t – this is a genie that can never be put back in the bottle.
The fact of the matter is that we have been defending ourselves against Islamic malefactors practically since the inception of this country. Thomas Jefferson dealt with pirates off the northern coast of Africa during his presidency and was left no choice but to declare war (twice) on the African Berber Muslim states, also known as the Barbary States. Seems they were seizing American merchant ships and enslaving the crews for high ransoms, slaughtering those whose families wouldn’t or couldn’t pay the demanded monies.
In light of recent events and Islamic history, there is little doubt the chosen method of execution was then, as it is now, the radical “Mahommedan from-the-neck-up-weight-loss” program.
Spin the clock forward to this week in Moore Oklahoma. Something of a career criminal, 30-year-old Alton Alexander Nolen, a Muslim proselyte, enters his former place of employment, the Vaughn Foods processing plant, and kills ex-coworker Colleen Hufford, a 54-year-old woman who was repeatedly stabbed as she screamed for help and whose head the killer sawed clean off of her lifeless body.
Nolen’s attempt to murder a second victim, 43 year old Traci Johnson, was thwarted when company president and CFO Mark Vaughn, also a reserve deputy with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office, opened fire shooting the attacker several times. Johnson did sustain multiple stab wounds but is expected to survive.
Imagine if the gun control liberals had taken away this man’s right to bear arms. How much worse could the carnage have been? As horrific as it is to American sensibilities, this didn’t happen in the nether reaches of desert sands. This occurred right here in the American heartland.
Now the question becomes this: “Who are the busy little bees involved in the conspiracy to destroy the delicately balanced honeycomb of American safety and freedom? As in any bee colony there are workers, drones, the queen, and the pupae each functioning to assure the colony thrives and survives.
It’s often difficult to pinpoint exactly who’s who in the conspiratorial human bee colony, but it is very plain to see that Islamic terrorism is aided and abetted by various individuals and entities. Chief among them is the sycophantic, liberal, media and entertainment apparatus, particularly left-wing broadcast news networks, like the big three, ABC, NBC, and CBS, and the ever-present Hollywood celebrity elitists.
Together, these conspire and conspire and conspire to marginalize the threat of creeping Sharia and global jihad and to demonize as “intolerant Islamophobes” those who have the audacity to point out the fact that virtually every act of terror committed in the post-modern world: 9/11, Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon, the Moscow theater massacre, and on and on, are perpetrated by religious fanatics flying the banner of Islam. Many have concluded, rationally, that they have been spurred on by both the didactic teachings of their scripture and the example of the founder of their religion.
The complicit so-called “lamestream media” has, and apparently will continue to, sugar-coat each and every instance until they themselves are bound, gagged, and subjected to their own gruesome beheading. Such is their commitment to ideological idiocy. Their heads will roll around on the desert floor declaring that Christianity is as every ounce as evil in its tenets as the religion of “peace” Islam. THAT is the unquenchable degree of their nails-on-the-chalkboard ignorance.
The challenge, which is one that shall NEVER be met so long as the likes of Barack Hussein Obama and his drones are in power, is to restore that delicately balanced safety and freedom to this land. But the point constantly overlooked, is that when freedom of religion infringes upon corporate and individual welfare, the religion in question no longer warrants the protections afforded it by the Constitution.
Islam’s self-promoted goal could not be less ambiguous: “World domination.” Although even to write this feels like a crazy right-wing, Dr. Simon Bar Sinister machination, it is not far from the absolute truth. Examining the deeds of Mohammed himself, who once oversaw the beheadings of more than 700 Quraiza Jews in a single day in 627 A.D., then onto the 9/11 plotters and pilots, and finally to the smaller-scale interpersonal terror attacks of late, all have been carried out in the name of a religion that questionably refers to itself as “peaceful.” That’s a fact, not a phobia.
Whether it’s true that Islam is Islam, as many propose, or that roughly 40% of Muslims understand it from a “radicalized” perspective as conveyed to this Examiner by a former Muslim, these acts continue to speak for themselves. And what they speak crushes the very fabric of what we thought was a safe and secure society, isolated and insulated from the daily barbarity on the Arab street.
While it might not be fair to state that all followers of Islam are jihad type terrorists, undeniably the largest threat facing civilization is presently, Islamic jihad terror. We can either deal with it pragmatically or we can let it forcibly deal with us. There is no in-between.
