Posted on 09/30/2012 5:35:11 AM PDT by expat1000
Over two centuries ago a group of British colonists huddling amid the forests and rivers of a new continent decided what they could and could not say by killing enough soldiers and mercenaries that the people who had been in charge of their speech decided they should try their luck somewhere where the regulating was easier.
This state of affairs in which the country that those colonists formed became and remains one of the very few places in the world, even among Western democracies, where freedom of speech is absolute, came about through stirring speeches, deeply felt debates, classical ideas and a passionate political culture-- but most of all it came about because large numbers of people were willing to kill over it.
Currently large numbers of people are willing to kill over the idea that Islam is the supreme religion, that Mohammed is a deity whom all mankind should respect and that the infidels living in the suburban sprawl of a thoroughly explored continent should accept that or die. Our government calls those people a tiny minority of extremists. Our unofficial name for them is, "Muslims."
Laws are decided by many things, but sweep away all the lawbooks, the pleas from tearful mothers, the timed publicity campaigns, the novel legal theories and the greedy bureaucrats expanding their turf, and under the table you will find a gun. The first and final law is still the law of force. The law begins with the power to impose its will on others. It ends with the enforcement of that power.
Law either has force behind it or it does not, and if it has no force behind it then it is an optional thing that is subject to custom. And every now and then the law is challenged, not with novel legal theories or with petitions, but with force, and it either responds with force or submits to a new law. That is what we call revolution.
Islam has made laws that it expects all of mankind to abide by. These laws are not backed by novel legal theories or by petitions, though its practitioners are willing to offer both, they are backed by the naked practice of force. And the imposition of these laws can only be defended against by force.
We are no longer led by revolutionary believers in the freedom of man, but by revolutionary believers in the submission of man to the higher principles that make their utopian sandcastles possible. They cannot honestly draw a red line on freedom, not when they have crossed it so many times themselves for their own agendas. They believe in a variety of rights, but all of those rights involve imposing their ideas and beliefs on others, and that is something they have in common with the Muslim lawyers waving guns and black flags over our burning embassies. They might contemplate killing and dying for gay marriage or the right to put tobacco warnings on cigarettes, but not for the pure idea that anyone should be able to say anything that they want without regard to ideological alliances.
The lawyers who run all our national affairs have chosen to respond to the Islamic legal briefs of bombs and bullets with the equivocation with which they meet all difficult questions. They will not abandon the principle of freedom of speech, but they will lock up the filmmaker whose imprisonment the murderous Muslim legalists called for. They will not censor YouTube, but they will encourage YouTube to censor itself. They will not ban speech that offends Islam, but they will strongly condemn and discourage it.
These equivocators offer to abandon the practice of freedom so long as they are allowed to retain the theory of freedom. The Bill of Rights will not change, but as in the Soviet Union it will not apply. The authorities will pay lip service to the freedoms that we only think we have until we actually try to use them and then we will discover that we don't actually have any of these freedoms left in stock.
In theory America will be an independent country, in practice it will be a vassal state of the Muslim world whose displays of outrage will be our law telling us what we can and cannot say, what we can and cannot think, and what we can and cannot do.
This is the typical kind of bargain that decadent empires make with the barbarous warlords on their doorstep. The empire will keep its splendor and its titles, while the barbarians will tell the empire what to do. Eventually the warlords will rule the empire, but that will only come as a shock to the citizenry who were too dazzled by the pageantry of power to realize that power is not defined by its display, but by its usage. Power is law and where there is no power, there is also no law, and those who have the power also make the laws.
What is the difference between American law and Muslim law? There are a great many differences, but the only one that matters is the difference between Constantinople and Istanbul. The only reason that we do not have Muslim law is that Muslims have not yet succeeded in forcing it on us, as they have already done to a sizable percent of the peoples and cultures of the world. That difference will be eliminated the moment that they succeed in doing so.
Law is not some mystical or technical affair. At its most basic it is the school bully demanding a cut of your lunch money in perpetuity. It is the ability to force someone to do something for some reason. Law can be high-minded, it can be moral or it can be a mob demanding that you imprison anyone who offends Mohammed. This is school bully law and it is as valid as any other kind because the distinctions that legal theorists make have no relevance in the face of the law of force.
A demand for a code of conduct backed by violence is law. It is not our law, it is not the law of the civilized man, but it is the law that we are slowly adopting. It is the law of the decadents appeasing the savages. Its only real content warns against offending the savage on the grounds that this will have negative consequences for our soldiers, our billboards, our image in the world and our embassies. And that is the law of the savage mediated by all the fine useless intellectualization of the decadent.
Under this code, Muslim violence dictates our permissible forms of speech. To know whether a thing may be said, drawn or filmed, we must first determine how Muslims will react to it. If they will react with violence, as they do to a sizable percentage of things, then it becomes incitement, retroactively, that must be punished and condemned.
Muslim violence has become our law. It is the law of action which determines our laws of speech. To understand what we can say, we first have to decide what Muslims will do about it. A long long time ago, perhaps less than twenty years ago, our government would meet their action with an action of its own, it would meet force with force. The British government did not do that with Salman Rushdie, instead it got him to read a statement apologizing for his book, but perhaps ours would have done better. Probably not.
When we were revolutionaries, our government saw force as a way of dealing with other countries who wanted to tell Americans what to do. But since then our government has really gotten used to telling us what to do. Occasionally it invades other countries in the name of some global consensus that claims to be able to treat countries the way that our government treats us and tell them what to do.
Lately that consensus, which we can call the United Nations, the International Community or an International Disease of Corrupt Bureaucrats and Power Mad Utopians, has been telling our government that it needs to tell us what we can and cannot say. And our government has no response except to mumble something about the First Amendment, which it doesn't really believe in anymore, but since it's had no luck getting rid of the Second Amendment, it isn't about to try with the First, and urges the consensus and the murderous mobs to work with us to arrive at an agreement that we can all live with. And by "we", I don't mean us.
In a world where jet planes rapidly crisscross the planet and bombs can be embedded in anything, where companies and non-profits both lust for immigrants and unstable Third World societies export their instability to First World societies as immigration, where corporations have offices everywhere and national interest is just a fancy way of saying international trade relationships, the primary law becomes maintaining the stability of a broken system and containing its inherent violence.
The lawyers running the system will not defend national interests because they don't believe in them, they won't defend freedom because they don't believe in it, they will defend the system because it is the only thing that they do believe in. And they will defend it at the point where it is easiest to defend, not from the attacking Muslims, but from the natives who appear to be making them angry.
Would you rather fight a billion violent madmen or arrest a filmmaker? The answer is very simple. Forget Theodore Roosevelt's "Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead". The Obama motto is "It's okay if Perdicaris is dead, so long as Raisuli isn't too mad at us."
Forget the Bill of Rights, a document thrown together by agrarian utopianists worried about central government. Our new breed of lawyer-kings is composed of urban utopianists ruling through central government. To them the Bill of Rights is a piece of incomprehensible lunacy that prevents them from getting anything done. They are not concerned with rural government trespasses, they are worried about bombs and riots in their cities and they are terrified of their global goals being sabotaged by some movie trailer.
They are making Muslim violence into our new law, just as they made urban violence into our new law, just as they have made their own bureaucratic mandates backed by SWAT teams and prisons into our new law.
The age when laws were made by men, rather than machines of social progress composed of lawyers and activists, bureaucrats and think-tanks, lobbyists and judges, is long since gone. There is no law in our laws, but the law of force. The Constitution sits on a dusty shelf while the judges bang their gavels and practice the law that mandates something because those in power want it that way.
And now our utopian lawyer-kings, our armies of bleeding-heart social justice activist, our legions of bureaucrats stamping their papers over our skulls, our grinning black-robed activist judges wielding their gavels like swords, are cringing in terror before a Muslim mob. The bullies who have bullied us for so long have proven to be cowards. While they dismantle our army to sell it for scraps so that the EPA and HUD and the cowboy poetry festivals can get their billions, they order us to fall on our knees before the Army of Allah.
The liberal bullies who bullied us for so long have been successfully bullied and have handed us over to the bully's bully. But bullies, of the liberal or Muslim kind, are cowards. Their bullying only works until they are successfully bullied and without their threat of force, their laws wither and blow away on the wind.
This says it all, “In theory America will be an independent country, in practice it will be a vassal state of the Muslim world whose displays of outrage will be our law telling us what we can and cannot say, what we can and cannot think, and what we can and cannot do.”
I also found this site informative: Scroll down to see the daily attacks:
I think a spontaneous reaction globally will be Christians declaring a crusades revival. It won’t be officially sanctioned by Rome at all, people will just start cleaning house.
This is America. It isn’t Pakistan or Egypt, it isn’t Britain or France or Scandahoovia. Here, a majority of the citizens are armed.
Muzzies don’t pull their rage cr@p here because it just might get them shot, especially in states with CCW, Castle Doctrine, & Stand your Ground.
My native state of South Carolina is beginning to seem more & more like an island of relative sanity compared to the PC la-la lands of CA, NJ, MA, MI, & NY. Our local muzzies keep to themselves & are vewy, vewy quiet since the state is perceived as crawling with heavily armed Bible thumping rednecks who are either veterans of Islamic wars or related to someone who is.
That could be why I like it here.
>> And our responses were what?
For the most part, you have a point, but Reagan responded to the 1986 Berlin disco bombing with an air-raid on Libya. That attack would have killed Khaddafi if the Italians had not betrayed us and warned him.
Muzzies dont pull their rage cr@p here because it just might get them shot, especially in states with CCW, Castle Doctrine, & Stand your Ground.
Dearborn, Michigan. Soon as they reach a plurality, the oppression begins in earnest.

Romney calls a presser, and says:
“Muslim violence is our new law”. Any questions?
The best way to handle this is to make anti-Islamic and anti-Mohammed criticism ubiquitous. Probably the best way to do this is via computer piracy, in a manner of speaking.
That is, get very popular pirate music and video downloads, and edit into them anti-Islamic and anti-Mohammed audio and video. Then post them to pirate file sharing sites.
It would be especially effective to do this with jihadi audio and video. Say the typical Muslim morons download a video of some radical leader ranting, and halfway through, somebody inserts a cut-and-paste edit of his words calling Mohammed a Jewish Zionist who is damned and in Hell.
Importantly, such pirated stuff is usually shared before listened to or watched, so various jihadis would blame other jihadis for the corrupted files. Many would download then just archive them for later. So they could pop back up years later.
This also works for non-Muslims as well. For example, replace some of the video in some loathsome rap music video with Mohammed comics. By all appearances, the rap singer has “made a statement” against Islam. The results of which could be amusing.
I will not submit. I will never surrender.
I will never surrender Da Vinci, Newton and Einstein, for Allahu Akbar, and flying passenger planes into office buildings.
I will never surrender Michelangelo, Vermeer and Rembrandt, for Allahu Akbar, and forced female genital mutilation.
I will never surrender Descartes, Locke and Jefferson, for Allahu Akbar, and beheading apostates of conscience.
I will never surrender Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, for Allahu Akbar, and child rape called arranged marriage.
I will never surrender Shakespeare, Byron, and Shelley, for Allahu Akbar, and stoning rape victims to death for adultery.
I will never surrender Faulkner, Fitzgerald and Hemingway, for Allahu Akbar, and poisoning schoolgirls for daring to learn.
I will never surrender the sacred freedom of speech, for Allahu Akbar, and laws that forbid telling the truth about an evil false prophet.
Voltaire said, To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize. I will not be ruled over by the followers of a Seventh Century desert pirate, rapist and mass-murderer.
Randall Wallace said, They may take our lives, but they can never take our freedom. Would that our leaders were so brave, or as dedicated to human liberty. But even without them, I will not submit, and I will never surrender to a barbaric death cult masquerading as a religion.

Excellent exposition about how ALL law is in the end about making folks do what they otherwise might not do. That is why we have law ENFORCEMENT. Article makes a point that some law is bullying (ie Sharia) other is moral (Judeo/Christian legal thought/foundation), but it gets down to the force of arms as to which is enforced.
And instead of apologizing for the Christians' "natural reaction" the governments of the world will turn their armies loose on them...
LOL! That requires Skills! Hope someone who has them might see this.
Amen. Thank you for your statement.
