Got no opinion sir, they’re bad for business

Inherit the Wind 1960

Saw the following tweet last night:

The story went to a facebook page but a quick Google search came up with this:

GEICO

I’m typing this at 11:05 PM Eastern Time so it’s a tad late to be calling GEICO concerning this for comment, but assuming this is not a forgery or a photoshop this will likely have the effect on the company that the safe dropping on Wile E Coyote did in their commercial.

I’d go a step further, due to the nature of the internet it’s not going to matter if this image is a true image or if there is a logical valid business explanation for this. That fact that this is out there means that a lot of people involved in the gun argument are going to see it and react accordingly

The result? That can be explained in a single tweet:

In our balkanized country we will see more and more of this. To those business about to take sides I’d refer them to this Scott Adams cartoon before they choose.

…are likely to get very little attention because they involve race and religion and contain templates that the MSM media does not want to touch

#1 From Andrew Breitbart’s Big Peace:

It’s also hard to sell the women of Norway on the claim that “Islam is a religion of peace!” since every “assault-rape” that took place in their country in 2010 was carried out by a Muslim. (83 such rapes in total.) In some cases the rapist actually told the victim that his religion allowed him to rape her.

It’s also growing increasingly hard to tell members of our military that “Islam is a religion of peace!” because more and more Muslims are taking it unto themselves to attack our stateside military facilities as a way to show whose side they’re on in the War on Terror. It was just this past week that two Muslims were arrested in Seattle for their plan “to attack a military processing center…using machine guns and grenades.” And it was just the week prior that a Marine Corps reservist named Yonathan Melaku was arrested for suspicious activity around the Pentagon and thereafter found to have a video in his possession that showed him driving by the National Museum of the Marine Corps, shooting his pistol at the museum, and chanting “allahu Akbar.”

If that paragraph doesn’t give you pause it ought to.

#2 From the American Thinker.

My colleague, Alan Kornman, and I were both shooting videos of this simmering situation when he was surrounded by a group of cursing young men. They started screaming at Alan that he should stop filming them. Alan responded (correctly) that they had no right or expectation of privacy in a public place. One of this group, a truly ugly, sloppy fat guy, was getting agitated. I have video of this brave young worthy sliding behind his friend before he lets loose with a volume of spit aimed at Alan, and then slithering away immediately thereafter. Another brave young Muslim then hit Alan, and immediately disappeared.

On Saturday, Alan conducted an interview that lasted almost 30 minutes with a young woman who was behind a booth selling “Palestinian” doodads (shawls, olive wood candlesticks, etc.), and peddling “Palestinian” propaganda. Among other interesting things, Alan got her to say, twice, that she herself would have killed Anwar Sadat. Watch www.theunitedwest.org for video of that interview, which will be online soon.

On Saturday evening we came across a man who was quietly standing on a corner holding a sign proclaiming Jesus as Messiah. He was not taunting anyone. Instead, he was available to speak to anyone who chose to speak to him. Not long before we met him, he had been attacked by a group of boys, who threw a variety of things at him, and shouted vile epithets at him. We started to interview him when, suddenly, a swarm of boys started buzzing around again, with an older boy obviously directing their activities.

The location Dearborn Michigan his conclusion is rather horrible.

3. And now for Problems in Peoria:

Tonight, around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth marched down one of the side streets (W. Thrush) to the 4 lane main drag (Sheridan). They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill alll the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help.

Cars were doing U turns on the streets just to avoid the mob, mostly male. One youth stated his grandfather was white and several assaulted him on the spot.

The initial blog that reported this went down due to a drudge link so I found it from a secondary site.

The cast of characters of all three incidents are different as are the locations, but the source of the problem is identical, lack of cultural assimilation.

The genius of America has always been that one can be “American” no matter what culture race or national origin you come from. My grandparents came from Sicily, and my thoughts and ways are still influenced by that culture but I am completely American as are my children.

When instead people choose to remain outside, and encourage others to do so for their own gain it creates Balkanization which is a cancer on society.

It is that, the underlying danger of Balkanization that has the best potential to bring us down. The US is the choice of those “yearning to breathe free” for a reason, if we don’t take care of this problem it will not only be disastrous for us but for millions who would come here to make a better life for themselves.

Because of the races and religions involved our media will ignore and deny these stories (if the races or religions were reversed this would be headline news) but if we ignore this problem it will not go away.

Update: Make it four, look what is happening in Holland:

The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants to ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.

The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner, “it is not the government’s job to integrate immigrants.” The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress. More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013.

If necessary, the government will introduce extra measures to allow the removal of residence permits from immigrants who fail their integration course.

Via Thomas Lifson comments who notes this is a story… :

..that has gotten almost no notice from the American media, which wishes to pretend that multiculturalism works just fine

Of course it hasn’t doesn’t fit the template.
