In this insane political environment in which we find ourselves after the horrible tragedy in Tucson last Saturday, we have renewed calls from various officials, pundits, journalists, and even lawmakers floating ludicrous proposals to ‘tone down the rhetoric,’ ‘tamp down the vitriol,’ and change the political climate; all by creating new laws and regulations regarding speech, certain words in general, and, yes, even symbols.
So I’ve taken the time to give them some example of this “vitriolic rhetoric” and how they’re used in our everyday conversations, so the new Speech Police will be able to more easily recognize these inflammatory terms and phrases when they’re encountered.
Yes, this list is ridiculously long, but the wailing and gnashing of teeth, sweating of brow, and fretting over such terms and phrases is just as ridiculous; not necessarily in length but in breadth of insanity.
So, here we go. These are the things that we may no longer be able to say, and phrases we may no longer be able to use (in print or orally) once the Speech Police have gotten their way.
Man, oh, man. This man is really starting to scare the crap out of me with this appeasement horse squeeze.
And on top of that, he never even answered the girl’s question. Believe me, Indians know EXACTLY what Jihad is, as its definition has been written in the streets…in blood…for decades. If anyone knows what Jihad is, it’s certainly the Indians. Unfortunately, our Commander in Chief can’t bring himself to admit it himself.
The story of NPR’s firing of Juan is well known, as is Megyn Kelly’s take-down of CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper. CAIR and Ibrahim Hooper are just the same kind of race-pimps that we see in Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, NAACP and the like. The more they can keep their people down and dependent, the more they stand to profit. Dr. Jasser and men like Thomas Sowell are so far past the victimhood that is so pervasive in groups like the NAACP and CAIR. It’s refreshing to hear this discourse.
Only good things can come of this now-open dialogue. We cannot assuage our fears of Muslims in traditional garb on airplanes until Muslims themselves begin to admit it’s a Muslim problem and it has to be addressed in their community – fighting the extremists and destroying the Islamic theo-political ideology.
Last Sunday on “This Week with Christianne Amanpour,” the title of the show was called “Should the West Fear Islam?” Now, she could have just stopped it at that and spared the audience from a one-hour show of America-bashing Islamopologies. The obvious answer to the show’s questions is a simple “yes,” but there was one nugget in the show that really explained the truth.
Panelists on the show included Rev. Franklin Graham, evangelical leader; Robert Spencer, founder of Jihad Watch and co-founder of Stop the Islamization of America; Ground Zero Mosque co-founder Daisy Khan; Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and other scholars and families of 9/11 victims. Rev. Graham and Spencer were both outspoken about the evils of Islam, as was former Muslim, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, reporting via satellite, probably for her safety’s sake. You see, the wonderful, peace-loving, serene religion of Islam has issued many Fatwas against her, for which she has 24-hour security protection. Remember the Dutch filmmaker, Theo van Gogh? When he was killed by an Islamofascist, a knife was plunged into his chest, pinning to it a note to Ali saying she was next. Van Gogh produced a movie Ali starred in called “Submission” about the oppression of women under Islamic Sharia law.
In late May of 2010, Wellesley, Massachusetts public middle school students took a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – a controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society of Bostn. There, the students were separated by gender and the boys were asked to join the Muslim adults in their prayer. Several of the public school boys took part.
How much longer will we allow garbage like this to continue? Can you imagine a public school even THINKING about sending kids to an afternoon Bible School or any kind of Christian Revival? Are you kidding me?
