My Thoughts On Boston
FrontPageMag.com ^ | Arpil 19, 2013 | David Horowitz

Posted on 04/19/2013 11:02:41 PM PDT by Perseverando

Watching the news about the Boston bombing and the Muslim fanatics who perpetrated the deed, I cannot help reflect on all the nasty attacks that liberals and progressives and Muslim activists have conducted against conservatives who have attempted to warn Americans that their enemies are religious fanatics driven by an apocalyptic hatred of us because we are Jews, Christians, atheists, democrats – in a word, infidels.

It has been said by Nancy Pelosi, George Soros and other Democrats that George Bush created the terrorists by attempting to enforce a UN Security council resolution and take down one of the monsters of the 20th Century in Iraq. It has been said by the late Susan Sontag and other progressive intellectuals that the heinous attacks of 9/11 were the result of American policies. The Center for American Progress and university administrators have relentlessly defamed as Islamphobes and bigots those of us who have had the temerity to talk about the Islamic roots of Islamic terror. If only we ignored the Islamic beliefs behind the terrorism and made nice to all Muslims indiscriminately, the terrorists wouldn’t hate us.

Boston has exposed this as the Big Lie and fatuous delusion that it has always been. The Boston killers were treated better in America than all but an elite among Americans born here who love their country. They were given scholarships, they were admitted to the most exclusive prep schools, they lived in a Cambridge environment where critics of Islamic terror were regarded as Islamophobes and they as a minority deserving special consideration and concern. And yet they hated us. They hated America and ordinary Americans like the victims of their mayhem, and enlisted in the army of our mortal enemies. They hated us because they were fanatical believers in the idea that Mohammed had desired them to kill infidels and purify the earth for Allah. This is the face of our enemy and the sooner the delusional liberals among us wake up to this fact, the safer all of us will be.

Raised in one of the enemy camps, Mr. Horowitz has always had his finger squarely on the pulse of the anti-American crowds.

A nice succinct synopsis - thanks for posting this.

Right. And, even though he remained a "leftist" throughout his life, Christopher Hitchens is one of the few of that ilk who also saw Islamic Extremism for what it was.

The vast majority of the left remain totally blind to this threat to western civilization.

Islamic Fundamentalism is as big a danger as Nazism once was...

How many more of these Chechen types are in the country? Are they being monitored? If there are any more who have lived here for a period of time and then gone back to the homeland, they should rousted out and sent back permanently. The two a..holes who murdered people here proves you can’t trust any of them. Kick them out now before more bombs are detonated.

Societal rot cannot be quantified by spreadsheet analysis.

Islam is a barbaric social and political system dressed up in religious drag. No believing muslim can be a patriotic American; they are mutually exclusive. All foreign born muzzies should be deported. Accept no muzzie immigrants. We are at war with islam and we cannot possibly win if we don't acknowledge our enemy.

Exactly, but I place that failure with a prior Commander in Chief. When President George Bush define islam as a religion of peace, we were already doomed both here at home and abroad.

The Boston bombing was a SELF-INFLICTED WOUND.

Liberalism is a terminal disease, and the USA is dying because of it.

He’s right, but for one small factoid: Cambridge Rindge& Latin is just the local public high school, and the scholarship that the latter kid, at least, received was from the town, towards college.

im surprised by the ineptitude of the massive police show of force. you mean those helliocoptors with their heat seeking camera didn’t get an image? you mean those hundred (or thousands) of cops failed to see the bloodon the boat? and finally, you mean that this guy is still alive AFTER they shot up the boat? kudos to the homeowner who did the cops job for them. personally i wonder if Don Knotts was in charge

Another meditation about Boston. There are many people of Irish background there, including (stereotypically) on the police force. Many of these nice people in the past contributed to the IRA and its front groups: terrorist murderers in the British Isles. The local Boston politicians always made excuses for Irish jihad, complete with making their own self-righteous declarations.

Maybe next time one of these Irish terrorist fronts approaches a Bostonian for a small contribution, often billed as a “defense fund” for jailed killers, they should thoughtfully decline.

You are absolutely correct! Is there a government fund for one-way tickets for terrorists? Or should the folks start a civilian fund for getting them back to their desert homelands?

Because we don’t have people purposefully careening around the highways taking innocent lives.

Unless they’re kooks or jihadis.

That has been my question also. From their pictures they had the very best of brand-name clothing. Who paid for this?

and if we are terrified, we make all sorts of stupid policy decisions. ....Everyday the government (not WE) make all sorts of stupid policy decisions. Like funding of higher education by the taxpayer (if you want an education, YOU pay for it. Where there is a will there is a way.) Like destroying the family unit. Like allowing immigration that presents no benefit to the country, only the unskilled immigrant. Like expanding government benefits instead of expanding business interests. Like paying for Mega-Banks’ bailouts. The list goes on and on. The taxes to middle class and the achievers goes on and on.

DING DING DING! We have a Winner!

I mentioned the exact same thing yesterday on the live thread. The Provos were always scouring the pubs for money “for our brave lads behind The Wire”.

Meet the new collaborators, same as the old collaborators.

“The terrorists win if we economically cripple ourselves by waging a ‘war’ on something that cannot be won without affecting all of our rights as citizens.”

Common denominator between the terrorists: THEY ARE ALL MUSLIMS.
Islam itself says in it’s “holy book” to “sly the infidel wherever you shall find them” as wellas “Strike off the heads, strike off the hands of the infidel”.
Guess what, you aren’t a muslim?
YOU are an infidel, and they want you DEAD.
We can win this without harming the rights of ccitizens.
Again, what is the common denominator?

But you’ve already conceded defeat, and you will lay down like a good dhimmi and let the shaheed take whatever he wants from you.

I would be satisfied if the Conservative among us figured that out.
