Bow to Islam
QMI Agency ^ | April 20, 2013 | Ezra Levant

Posted on 04/20/2013 3:55:15 PM PDT by rickmichaels

“Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.”

That was the headline on a column of the popular liberal website, Salon, last week.

The author, David Sirota, said when a white guy commits odious crimes, “white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated.”

Even as I read that, I realized there is some truth to it, for Sirota himself is a white male and I do not hold other white men responsible for his sick and warped comments. It’s not Sirota’s maleness or whiteness I blame for his stupidity.

It’s his liberalness.

Oh, there was a lusting on the left for the killers to be white.

David Axelrod, the white male campaign strategist for Barack Obama, told a left-wing news channel, “I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is — we really don’t know who did this. It was tax day.”

Really? Was that the salient characteristic of the Boston Marathon bombings? That it was on tax day — the implication that it was some right-wing protest against taxes and, it being Boston after all, surely linked to the Tea Party?

Or — just a wild guess here — did the terrorists target the Boston Marathon because it was a mass gathering of people, with enormous media coverage, the better to create terror? Axelrod preferred his theory, because Obama had already done a victory lap in the war against terrorism, and in fact had scrubbed the word terrorism from its official vocabulary. How could it be terrorism when Obama won that war?

As Hillary Clinton told Congress after the al-Qaida attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”

Blaming the Tea Party — oh, please, let the terrorists be Republican! — would allow Sirota and Axelrod and Clinton achieve their ultimate goal: Defining conservatives as enemies of the state.

Alas, it was not to be. The Tea Party’s perfect streak of peacefulness continues, but radical Islam, popularly known as the religion of peace, increases its body count.

One of the accused terrorists, killed in a gun battle with Massachusetts police early Friday morning, was Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a Chechen Muslim.

Tamerlan is an unusual name. It would be like finding a young white male Republican named Adolf.

We don’t hear the name Tamerlan a lot in the west, but that wasn’t always the case. Christopher Marlowe, a contemporary of William Shakespeare, wrote a play called Tamburlaine the Great. Tamerlane, who called himself the Sword of Islam, was a military dictator, great in the same sense that Hitler and Stalin were great.

Actually, he was greater. During his bloody reign some 700 years ago, his armies killed 5% of all human life on earth — the equivalent, given the world’s population at the time, of someone killing

350 million people today. Hitler and Mao and Stalin together did not achieve that bloodbath.

Why is that relevant? Because there is a branch of Islam that believes in violence, that looks into the Qur’an and reads it literally, as a document of war. Which it is. Mohammed was first and foremost a warrior. Unlike the bloodier chapters of the Bible, there has been no reformation of the Muslim faith, no modernization, no liberalization.

In fact, the most famous and powerful Muslim leaders — certainly the most popular on the Muslim street — call for a return to Tamerlane-style butchery, to achieve a global theocracy.

Last week, Justin Trudeau mused about the “root cause” of the bombings. But he suggested the root cause was “marginalization,” as if the bombers were kids bullied in high school.

No. The root cause is that they believe, like the old Tamerlane did, that the world should bow to Islam, and if persuasion didn’t work, swords or bombs would.

There should be a cost for this kind of blood libel.

It should be clear by now that, far from expecting help from our leftist countrymen in the struggle against radical islam, we should expect a stab in the back.

They were hoping so badly that it was a TEA party member, or someone in the NRA. A Muslim terrorist just doesn’t fit their political agenda, and they can’t get any points from it. So they’re going to forget this ever happened, and go back to their pining for gay marriage and gun bans.

There is, our enemies are embolden; they see a Western society fractured and weak. Due to this, the likelihood of further such attacks is increased; more innocent blood shed that liberals can hope and pray was spilled by white conservatives.

“white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated.”

That's somewhat true, but irrelevant. If white Christian men were practically the sole source of religious based terrorism in the world, I bet white Christian males would be viewed a whole lot differently.

Not me.But then again, obama is not my god as he is to a majority of voters in the United States. Some even claim to be Christians,a/k/a followers of Christ.

There is no known cure for stupid. Tenure certainly won’t cure it.

White American males are deginerated for existing.

At least for existing in unacceptable numbers.

One of the better takeaway lines from the piece...

Blaming the Tea Party — oh, please, let the terrorists be Republican! — would allow Sirota and Axelrod and Clinton achieve their ultimate goal: Defining conservatives as enemies of the state.

That image - the arab master and his coloured slave.
The african chiefs sold their tribespeople to the arab slavers and the blacks have been bowing to them ever since.

Hey leftists and you in the lapdog media... you are no better than the terrorists... you wish for Conservatives to be at fault for the evil deeds of islam... but it is always domestic leftists and muslim radicals that are the evil doers... you defend muslim terrorists at every turn... you make excuses for them... you embrace their causes... you fund their evil... and though some of you may truly believe that you are making America a better place (others on the left are actively working for the destruction of America)... your goals are the same as their goals and both agendas end with the destruction of our way of life. WAKE UP... we on the right have.

I do love short lessons of historical fact.

Literally a “Caucasian”. A minor subtlety that escaped me. Maybe liberals will go back to this term just to squeeze every once of political gain from it.

There have been a lot of threads on this David Sirota guy's writings, so I think once in a while we need to look at the feller to keep things in proper perspective.

White men are denigrated (is that a racist term?) because Judeo-Christian culture has been so powerful.

Liberals are paddling feverishly beneath the surface to right this false wrong.

Evan Sayet explains it clearly (Evan Sayet Video Link).

Liberals have bent the trajectory of truth so that fringe elements will not be offended. Yet these fringe elements are trying to kill our world.

That dog won't hunt!
