More Islamofascism – virulent PC virus

Yup, the Washington cocktail crowd of P.C. Arsdom still has their collective noses in dark places while the rest of the infidel world laughs at us or is put to death in so-called “honor killings.”  Take the case of teenager Rifqa Bary (one among many!), for whom Pamela Geller has rallied for months and is blogging to try to keep her alive (recent rally in Ohio):  Rifqa Bary: Teenage Apostate in America

The shameful decision to try the 9/11 terrorists in civil court is a travesty of justice.  The penury of prudence would be malpractice in any other field and should be barred from civilian courts.  How would these animals obtain a jury of their peers within a 50 mile range of New York City?  And if enough Muslim men could be sought, how could they be expected to abnegate their theology and ideology for the length of the trial so as not to be impartial?  Either way, justice is not served and the United States is put on trial with our military secrets out on the table for our enemies to see.  Thank you, Messrs President and Attorney General.

 

The deadliest virus: Political correctness

U.S. soldiers pay their respects in front of fallen soldier memorials for the shooting victims after the III Corps and Fort Hood Memorial Ceremony at Fort Hood, Texas.

‘You see, Pinocchio,” said the Blue Fairy, “a lie keeps growing and growing until it’s as plain as the nose on your face.”

Sadly, this simple lesson, once taught only to small children, must be taught again to “grown-ups” who have conditioned our culture, our politicians and even our armed forces to deny and ignore the grave threats we face. But today the lies are called “political correctness,” and the consequences can be death.

Far more dangerous than Maj. Nidal Hasan’s heinous act at Fort Hood is our collective refusal to see it for what it is: a terrorist act inspired by radical Islam. Radical Islam is made more dangerous because political correctness has conditioned us not to identify it as the source of terrorism.

Like so much else delivered to us by the self-anointed virtuous class, the political correctness that would make us a “fairer” and more “open-minded” society now has us on our knees. We have so successfully shut down our body politic’s immune system that any foreign agent — in this case, radical Islam — is free, even encouraged, to run wild in our defenseless society. Even lost lives don’t slow the virulent PC virus.

By turning Hasan into a victim, a “soldier who snapped,” terrorism’s unwitting domestic enablers denied the real danger. Sadly, the Fort Hood terror attack shows that no institution is more severely compromised by the autoimmune shutdown than the U.S. Army itself.

Gen. George Casey, chief of staff of the Army, has mouthed the pieties of denial so convincingly and so repeatedly as to expose himself as perhaps being terminally infected. The Army’s culture is now so compromised that soldiers are conditioned to be more fearful of accusations of “Islamophobia” than of radical Islam. When the general’s first public reaction to the terrorist attack was to circle the wagons around “diversity,” can anyone blame them?

Ironically, Hasan was fast-tracked through the Army because of his radical beliefs. Authorities knew far more about Hasan before he struck than they currently know about many of the Sept. 11 hijackers. Yet the more open he was about his extremist beliefs, the more rapidly he advanced. It usually takes 10 years to make major in the Army. Hasan made it in six. Since there is no evidence that Hasan was a military genius, what, other than his stridently public embrace of radical Islam, served to distinguish him for such rapid advancement?

The real shock of Hasan’s terror attack was that so many seemed shocked it occurred. It was not the first domestic terrorist assault against a U.S. Army installation since Sept. 11, 2001. It was the eighth.

What Casey’s utter oblivion makes clear is that the United States Army, at least under his command, cannot be permitted to supervise the coming investigation. Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) must not permit his call for an empowered congressional investigation to be pre-empted by any Army request to lead it.

Transparency must not be prevented from prevailing over hollow calls for tolerance. If the Fort Hood massacre proved anything, it is that tolerating intolerance ensures the end of tolerance.

The Scapegoat Syndrome

By Paul Greenberg · Saturday, November 14, 2009

A familiar pattern emerges after every treacherous assault on this country. The surprise attack is dissected not just to learn who wreaked all the havoc, but who was responsible for missing the clues that it was coming. It happened after Pearl Harbor, when Americans wanted to know why it took so long to get the warning to Hawaii, particularly because our people in Washington knew an attack was likely, having broken the Japanese diplomatic code. Why, on that Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, were our aircraft lined up wingtip to wingtip at Hickam Field just waiting to be taken out by Japanese dive-bombers and fighters? It had to be a conspiracy!

A Silver Lining to Storms of Sorrow

There are many reasons why I look forward to Veterans Day, one being that it affords me the opportunity to write about Patriots who have sacrificially served our nation, honoring their sacred oaths to support and defend our Constitution.

So, each year at this time, I have the privilege of profiling friends whose conduct and lives are personal inspirations to me.

‘Internment’ Cops Being Hired for Enemies of the State

 Are you a ‘right wing extremist’?  Do you disagree with your government, on anything?  Do you own a copy of the Constitution?  Are you a ‘domestic terrorist’?  These might be some of the criteria – really – used to weed out undesirable conservative Americans when Martial Law is declared in the U.S. and the FEMA is allowed to run rampant over the rule of law.  Here’s a taste of the preparations being made NOW to allow American concentration camps to be operated in the near future, and a quote to whet your appetite.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation. General Frank Salzedo, chief of FEMA’s Civil Security Division stated in a 1983 conference that he saw FEMA’s role as a “new frontier in the protection of individual and governmental leaders from assassination, and of civil and military installations from sabotage and/or attack, as well as prevention of dissident groups from gaining access to U.S. opinion, or a global audience in times of crisis.” (emphasis mine) 

 

Why is National Guard recruiting for ‘internment’ cops?

Ad campaign seeks workers at ‘civilian resettlement facility’

Posted: August 07, 2009

An ad campaign featured on a U.S. Army website seeking those who would be interested in being an “Internment/Resettlement” specialist is raising alarms across the country, generating concerns that there is some truth in those theories about domestic detention camps, a roundup of dissidents and a crackdown on “threatening” conservatives.

The ads, at the GoArmy.com website as well as others including Monster.com, cite the need for:

“Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists in the Army are primarily responsible for day-to-day operations in a military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility. I/R Specialists provide rehabilitative, health, welfare, and security to U.S. military prisoners within a confinement or correctional facility; conduct inspections; prepare written reports; and coordinate activities of prisoners/internees and staff personnel.

The campaign follows by only weeks a report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warning about “right-wing extremists” who could pose a danger to the country – including those who support third-party political candidates, oppose abortion and would prefer to have the U.S. immigration laws already on the books enforced.

The “extremism” report coincided with a report out of California that the Department of Defense was describing protesters as “low-level terrorists.”

The new ad says successful candidates will “provide external security to … detention/internment facilities” and “provide counseling and guidance to individual prisoners within a rehabilitative program.”

Officials at the state and federal National Guard levels told WND they were unaware of the program, although one officer speculated it could be intended for soldiers trained in the U.S. and dispatched overseas to “detention facilities.” From the national level, WND was told, officials were unaware of any such “internment facilities” at which there could be jobs to be available.

Army job 'internment specialist'

At a NationalGuard.com website, a front page video describes the position thoroughly.

But one of the critics was a YouTube contributor who identifies himself as jafount and titled his video, “Want a job putting people into camps?”

 

Alarmed by the ads, he said it, the idea “just absolutely blew my mind.”

Citing a promise that successful applicants would be trained in “search and restrain procedures,” he said, “That’s code for [kicking down your door and] violating the 4th Amendment.”

Likewise, he said, “use of firearms” is “code for depriving somebody of their life.’

“This is the real deal, I think,” he said, citing, among others, the NationalGuard.com link.

“I saw something that didn’t sit right with me. I posted it so other people can investigate,” he said.

A commenter on the YouTube site pooh-poohed the whole suggestion.

“You have … put out a relatively benign fact, twisted it into something sinister, and then did a tinfoil-hat connection to give a false impression,” the forum participant wrote.

The ads list as “advanced responsibilities” issues such as supervision and administration, responsibility for the “prisoner/internee” population, “custody/control for the operation of an Enemy Prisoner of War/Civilian Internee (EPW/CI) camp,” and work on “custody/control for the operation of detention facility or the operation of a displaced civilian (CD) resettlement facility.”

An editorial at CanadaFreePress.com raised some overall concerns:

Let’s look at some of the evidence we have of the U.S. government’s intentions to establish the infrastructure that could be used to house large numbers of political dissidents, so-called terrorists and other individuals the U.S. government wants locked up.

HR 645 the National Emergency Centers Establishment Act is a proposed bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would authorize FEMA to build no less than six National Emergency Centers throughout the U.S. on closed or open military facilities. These facilities are to be designed to house large numbers of people. Why would emergency centers need to be built on closed or open military facilities unless there was a need to keep people from coming in and out of them?

KBR was granted a government contract a few years ago to build facilities to house illegal immigrants. Now with illegal immigration becoming less of a problem with the U.S. economy in the toilet, these facilities can now be used for other purposes.

“This is just another step in the U.S. government’s long term plan to build the infrastructure that could be used to contain wide spread popular revolt. Combine this with the swine flu fear mongering and the potential for a mass swine flu vaccination operation and it is easy to see what might happen. Refuse to take their poisonous vaccine and you might risk being locked up as being a hazard to public safety. With the economy in the toilet and more and more people not trusting either political party or the corporate media, the ‘powers that be’ realize that they need to continue building their martial law apparatus. These Army National Guard job listings are just another piece to that puzzle proving what we already know is being built,” the editorial claimed.

At the Examiner, a commentator wrote, “Correctional/internment facilities? I have to admit that the U.S. government is good at one thing: creating fluffy names for evil acts. During WW2, of course, the U.S. didn’t have concentration camps, we had ‘relocation centers’ for hundreds of thousands of innocent Japanese citizens.”

The jobs also were listed at Jobsearch.money.cnn.com, employmentguide.com and freedomsphoenix.com.

WND reported when the DoD eventually withdrew a training manual question that linked protesters across the United States to terrorism.

That followed by only weeks a Department of Homeland Security report that described as “right-wing extremists” those who oppose abortion and support secure national borders.

Richard Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center, has told WND that as part of his organization’s research for its lawsuit over the DHS “extremism” report, it has discovered additional information that it is withholding now but will include in a pending amended complaint.

Thompson said one of the things that sparked the organization’s curiosity was a reference by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano in the original report to not only government resources but also non-governmental resources.

Thompson said the information he has “creates even more concern that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is unconstitutionally targeting Americans merely because of their conservative beliefs.”

The earlier DHS report was “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” WND has posted the report online for readers to see.

The report linked returning veterans with the possibility of terrorism, and when it was released it created such a furor for Napolitano she has given several explanations for it, including that she would have reworded the report and that it was issued by a rogue employee.

She later apologized to veterans for having linked them to terror.

But Thompson noted that the report also targeted as “potential terrorists” Americans who:

  • Oppose abortion
  • Oppose same-sex marriage
  • Oppose restrictions on firearms
  • Oppose lax immigration laws
  • Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship, and the expansion of social programs
  • Oppose continuation of free trade agreements
  • Are suspect of foreign regimes
  • Fear Communist regimes
  • Oppose a “one world” government
  • Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world
  • Are upset with loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India, and more

Thompson told WND no apology has been offered to the members of any of those classes of citizens.

Thompson said the original “extremism” report was “the tip of the iceberg. … Conservative Americans should be very outraged.”

The Thomas More Law Center filed its lawsuit against Napolitano and the DHS on behalf of nationally syndicated conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage, Gregg Cunningham of the pro-life organization Center for Bio-Ethical Reform Inc. and Iraqi War Marine veteran Kevin Murray.

It alleges the federal agency violated the First and Fifth Amendment constitutional rights of the three plaintiffs by targeting them for disfavored treatment and chilling their free speech, expressive association, and equal protection rights. The lawsuit further claims that DHS encouraged law enforcement officers throughout the nation to target and report citizens to federal officials as suspicious rightwing extremists and potential terrorists because of their political beliefs.

Gag Me

The First Amendment to the US Constitution allows the freedom of speech (and I would say with some civility), yet our elected leaders and non-representing representatives are not allowing us to question them, their policies or affiliations.  Somehow feels like a gag order to me.  Worse yet, Obama’s partners in crime, Pelosi & Hoyer, not only are calling those who attend the town halls “Nazis” (yes, did you hear that?!), but she wrote an Op-Ed piece in USA Today calling them un-American (for standing up and questioning their reps?!) and accusing them of doing what the Democrats themselves are doing — lying and strong-arming their way through the meetings, busing in union members to harrass those who might disagree with the legislation.  It all comes straight from Saul Alinsky’s socialist handbook and it’s dirty tricks as usual.

Democrats, Media Distorting Town Hall Facts
by James Hirsen
Aug 10, 2009
Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and others who express concern about the socialization of our healthcare system are getting slimed. Those who speak out at Town Hall meetings are being painted as “manufactured protesters.”
“Now we see the president, Dem Party, and Machiavellian media revving up their propaganda engines to push an unsuspecting public into believing that town hall meetings are staged, rent-a-mobs are bullying congressional members, and insurance companies are choreographing the entire scenario.”
“But the same politicians and media that are defaming citizens for daring to ask questions were sickeningly silent when members of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, a.k.a. ACORN, really did fabricate protests at the homes of AIG executives who received bonuses following the government approved TARP bailouts.”
