After every act of terror that involves radical Islamists we are reminded by the left not to rush to judgment and that we cannot condemn an entire religion or its followers for the acts of a few. I agree that people should be judged individually. I also know that when a large group of those people or their individual governments support their acts then it is OK to paint them with a broad brush.
Unfortunately, the very people who tell us not to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few are the same people who condemn all gun owners for the acts of a few people with guns who do bad things. The reality is that most people who do bad things with guns have already broken countless laws to do so and usually do not own the guns legally. This fact escapes the gun grabbers as they paint all gun owners, law abiding citizens who exercise a constitutionally protected right, with a broad brush.
After the Newtown shooting, where a gunman who used guns he stole to murder a number of people (mostly children,) Barack Obama wasted no time condemning the act and then vowing to pass tougher gun laws. These laws would only affect law abiding gun owners as they are the only ones who would follow them. The guns that would be banned and the hoops people would have to jump through would only infringe on the people who obey the law. The people who do bad things will still get guns, won’t worry about the gun being on some approved list, and would not go through a background check.
That did not stop Obama and his anti gun zealots from vowing to pass tough gun laws. Some states did just that and ended up only harming those who did no wrong. In fact, some people were then targeted to have their guns confiscated. This all happened to people who did no wrong.
Now we have a terrorist attack that happened in Boston during the Boston Marathon. While we were cautioned not to rush to judgment Obama’s stenographers in the media wasted no time blaming the right wing, gun owners, rednecks, people who hate taxes, white people, and any other group they could paint as a right wing entity. I did not hear Obama asking them not to rush to judgment.
It turns out the bombers are followers of Islam. That should come as no shock as most of the acts of terror are committed by followers of that religion (notice I said most – added for liberals who have trouble with comprehension). The Muslims involved in 9/11 murdered more people than the gunman in Newtown. Hell, they murdered more than the recent mass shootings combined. George Bush did not say we should ban Muslims; he just went after those who intended to do us harm.
Since Barack Obama sees fit to go after all gun owners for the acts of a few deranged people I want to know if he will now ban Muslims.
You see, he was quick on the trigger after Newtown but slow and cautious in his response to the Boston bombing. Unlike his call to action on tougher gun control after Newtown, he was vague and asked us not to rush to judgment. He did not even use the word terror in his first address.
It is now abundantly clear that those who did this are Muslims. Will B. Hussein Obama now apply the same standard he did with regard to Newtown and ask Congress to ban Muslims from the United States?
In this country when a person drives drunk we go after that person not alcohol or cars. When a person stabs a bunch of people we go after the person using the knife, not the knife. When a gun is involved things get murky because the liberals go after the guns of all citizens.
Well Muslims have murdered more Americans than gun wielding morons in mass shootings.
If Obama is to apply the same standard then he must go after Muslims and work with Congress to get them banned.
The mantra from the left is; if we only save one child…
Well, banning Muslims would do just that (so would outlawing abortion).
This might not be a popular position but neither is gun control and the fact that it is not popular has not stopped Obama and the rest of the anti gun crowd from working to disarm us. Hell, they even lie about support.
I can’t say for sure but I bet more Americans support a Muslim ban than a gun ban.
I don’t support either (I believe in going after those involved in bad stuff) but if I had to choose I know America would be a lot safer with armed citizens than it would with Muslims (especially if it was disarmed).
Obama will probably not ban Muslims. What the they do is from the same textbook his buddy Bill Ayers uses.

The uproar over the firing of Juan Williams by NPR continues as more people from both sides of the political spectrum weigh in, in favor of the pundit. While there are extreme views on both sides, the common theme is that NPR was looking for a reason to fire Williams and this was the opening. Other people at NPR had made inflammatory statements in the past and they still work there so this cannot be the sole reason he was dismissed.
Williams was fired about 36 hours after his statements on the FOX News channel and came after pressure from the Muslim group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) which started a campaign to address the issue. CAIR is a group that claims to be for American Islamic relations but has been tied to terrorist organizations and generally works to impose Muslim views on America. Since it is unlikely anyone from NPR knew what Williams said (how many of them watch FOX) the pressure from CAIR was more than likely what drew attention to it and caused the dismissal. CAIR’s initial response was:
‘NPR should address the fact that one of its news analysts seems to believe that all airline passengers who are perceived to be Muslim can legitimately be viewed as security threats,’ CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said. Daily Mail UK
This might come as a shock to Nihad Awad but Muslims are viewed as a security threat as are all other people who choose to fly. Everyone MUST go through security at the airport and be screened because we are all viewed as a security threat.
One would think that we are no longer viewed as threats once we are screened but this is not the case. People and their possessions are subject to search at any time once past the security checkpoint. There have been too many incidents of attempted terrorist attacks on aircraft by people who successfully made it through security to believe that once people have been screened, we are safe.
Since a huge number of those attempted attacks have been by Muslims it is not unjustified or bigoted for Muslims in full garb (which announces they are Muslims) to be viewed as a security threat.
If little old blue haired ladies were attempting or threatening to blow up planes on a regular basis then Juan Williams would be apprehensive when he saw little old blue haired ladies on his flight.
The difference is, he would not be fired for expressing that feeling and the rest of the liberal echo chamber would agree with him.
How many acts of violence have Tea Party members initiated? None, but they are viewed as dangerous by the left wing in this country and they are routinely disparaged. No one has been fired for calling them names, saying they were dangerous or calling them radical.
But let someone express how he feels with regard to the people from whom most of the terrorists have come and he is fired.
So Nihad Awad orchestrated a campaign to get Williams fired and NPR complied because it helped with what they and George Soros wanted anyway.
But none of this takes away from the fact that Williams was correct in what he said and that what he said was not bigoted. It just helped Soros push his agenda and it allowed CAIR to claim victim status once again.
All of us who fly are considered security threats and that includes the Muslims who are up in arms at the very insinuation.
I think this incident will cause the government to cut funding to NPR. But what about donations? Do you think they will go up or down? Williams might get the last laugh…
And those who travel by air will still maintain vigilance when flying especially on planes with Muslims in full garb.
Never surrender, never submit.

National Public Radio (NPR) is funded by donations and US taxpayer dollars and it is supposed to provide unbiased reporting. The reality is that NPR is a partisan leftwing organization that serves as a mouthpiece for the Democrat party.
Juan Williams was an employee at NPR and he also appeared as a guest on a number of shows on FOX News. I rarely agreed with his point of view but I always found him to be thoughtful and well versed in politics. Sometimes his reasoning changed my mind on a topic and other times I thought his views clearly wrong but I always knew that his views were thoughtful and based in reality.
NPR was not happy that Williams appeared on FOX. They did not like the NPR being associated with a conservative network and they were out to get him.
Make no mistake, NPR has no problem with left wing liberal/progressive types and is more than happy to be associated with them. George Soros is providing money for NPR to hire 100 political reporters and you can bet that they will all be left wing partisans, contrary to what a network funded with taxpayer money should be.
Recently, Bill O’Reilly was on The View and he got into a tiff because he said Muslims attacked us on 9/11 (which is as true as saying the Japanese attacked us in WWII). Williams was a guest on O’Reilly’s show and made a statement that provided NPR what it needed to fire him.
Williams responded: “Look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
Williams also warned O’Reilly against blaming all Muslims for “extremists,” saying Christians shouldn’t be blamed for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
Williams did not stay on the plantation and spit out the left wing mantra so NPR ended his contract.
I can’t imagine Williams would have been fired if he had said that he worries when he gets on a plane and sees military guys because Tim McVeigh was in the military or if he said that he worries when he sees people dressed in Christian garb because they kill abortion doctors.
He might have been fired for that but I seriously doubt it.
He was fired because he said something about a group of people who have claimed the mantle of victimhood, a designation the left is more than happy to promote.
It is unacceptable to say such things especially if you are from the liberal plantation because liberals do not tolerate any point of view that does not agree with them. One only needs to look at the NAALCP political report about the racist TEA Party to see that if one does not agree with the left then that person must be a racist (homophobe, Islamophobe, etc). Much like the NPR, the NAALCP is full of left wing people who are more into politics than doing what they were intended to do (that report is designed to have an affect on the upcoming election and serves NO other purpose).
Williams is part of that liberal establishment and he was shut down quickly because he went to an organization that presents points of view from both sides of the political aisle but is the demon of the left. George Soros is spending millions of dollars to shut down FOX and anyone associated with it. His money to NPR was seed money to rid the organization of those who strayed from the plantation and to hire partisan liberal reporters.
Williams found out the hard way how tolerant the left is.
Maybe now he will wise up and become conservative where a diversity of opinions is welcome.
Just look at the comments of the NPR article. A number of people say they did not agree with Williams but appreciated his point of view. Those people are not the liberals though there are a few libs who stray from the plantation long enough to commend him.
This episode is a warning shot from Soros and the rest of the people trying to ruin this country. The message is loud and clear, stray from the herd and you will be taken out.
Soros is into extinguishing people who do not toe the liberal, new world order line. Look at how he is going after Glenn Beck…
As a young man George Soros helped the Nazis and now he is helping the Socialists. He is an evil man and the sooner he meets his father, Satan, the better.

This song came out in January of 2003.
It is amazing how quickly attitudes can change. We went from a nation at odds over a close election to a nation united after the attacks on 9-11-01.
After the initial unity we were once again a nation divided as politicians revised history to oppose actions they overwhelmingly and willingly voted for. We became a nation divided over protracted wars. We became a nation divided.
And so we are nine years after the most horrific attacks on our soil, divided.
That we would even allow discussion about the erection of a mosque anywhere near the site where the attacks occurred shows how we are marching further toward dhimmitude.
Have you forgotten?
Let us take time today to remember those innocent people who were murdered in an act of war nine years ago today. Please keep the memories of those in the buildings, those who went to rescue them and those who forced a plane into the ground alive in your hearts and minds.
Let us at least come together as a nation to do that.
And fly your American Flag.
Have you forgotten?
Never surrender, never submit.

A church in Manayunk, a neighborhood in the northwestern section of the city of Philadelphia PA, has had a complaint filed against it because its bell is too loud. The church that has been there for longer than any of the residents has a huge bell that tolls during the day. Someone complained that the church is violating noise laws for the town.
Christians became enraged at the thought of the church being told to stop ringing its bell and threatened violence if the city goes through with the process of fining the church. Army Generals complained about the Christians and their violence and how it might increase the danger to US troops serving overseas. Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Hillary Clinton all weighed in asking the town not to take further action that could inflame Christians and INTERPOL has issued a global warning to 188 member countries that violence against innocent people is likely to increase if the church is sanctioned.
OK, the last paragraph is complete nonsense. Those actions were in response to a Florida pastor’s plans to burn the Koran and the anticipated (and threatened) violence from the Islamic adherents to the religion of peace.
In reality, the church has toned down the bell over the years by reducing the number of times and frequency that it is rung and is looking at ways to reduce its sound level. It will be interesting to see how this plays out because churches are not mentioned in the list of noise producers covered or excluded and it has been there for around a century, long before noise restrictions were enacted (and long before the people who enacted them were born).
I wonder why a person would move to where a church bell makes loud noise and then complain about it.
In any event, it will be interesting to see how this plays out because there is a favored religion (cult) in this country that has very noisy calls to prayer five times a day. Muslim Mosques do not care about noise when they have the call to prayer (something Obama described as one of the most beautiful sounds) and though there is no mosque mentioned in the town one has to wonder if the town would have gone after a mosque for noise violations and if the Muslims would have felt disrespected and started making threats and participating in violent acts.
Look at how the Muslim world got its collective sheets in an uproar over some unknown pastor and his plan to burn Korans at his small church. There were protests around the world and threats to do harm to our soldiers (I would relax the rules of engagement and eliminate that threat) and this is not the first time.
Now we even have the Imam of the Ground Zero Mosque saying that they have to build the mosque there now or there will be violence. More threats.
This will happen more and more as Islamic groups demand things and then threats are made when they do not get their way. Every time we give in or they get their way after a threat then we will be a little weaker.
Fortunately, it looks like the pastor called off the Koran burning and did it in a manner that looks like a mutual agreement.
Now let’s see what happens from here.
Never surrender, never submit.
