The Godfather Part 2  1974

Saturday night I got myself playing Civ five and ended up staying up all night so I was hearing about the Pulse shooting almost from the start and was able to follow the reactions on social media between turns and watched the news, only pausing long enough to do my podcast before finally hitting the sack just after 2:30 pm (finally got 4+ hours around 2 pm).

Before I went to bed I noticed both the coverage on the networks and the meme on twitter and it was all about protecting Islam and pushing guns as the cause for the mass murder in Orlando, the only exception was the several hours that Jake Tapper was on CNN where he played it straight.

When I woke up CNN was in full, “hatecrime not Islam mode” and on twitter the attacks on conservatives and defenses of islam was unrelenting.

Again this was less than 24 hours after 50+ were slaughtered and blood was still on the floor in Orlando.
And of course conservatives, supporters of the 2nd Amendment and Christians on twitter were under attack by the left for daring to warn them about the people who are trying to kill them.

This leads to two questions, both which are extremely disturbing:

How would the reaction currently being directed toward Conservatives & Christians by the left online be any different if a conservative 2nd Amendment Christian had actually done the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando rather than an Islamist?

The answer: In my opinion it wouldn’t be

Given the first question why should, when Islamic Terrorists target and murder those on the left, any Conservative Christian show any sympathy or expend any effort to protect these folks who hate us so from such attacks?

The answer to the 2nd question is rather easy, it’s a non-optional doctrine of Christianity directly ordered by Christ here:

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.

For if you love those who love you, what recompense will you have? Do not the tax collectors do the same?

And if you greet your brothers only, what is unusual about that? Do not the pagans do the same?

Matthew 5:43-47

And that, along with the American in me outraged over an Islamic attack targeting my countrymen, will continue to trump the Sicilian in me, no matter how much the left attempts to convince me otherwise.

Some of these have already started to happen but I can only type so fast.

During any show that Jake Tapper is not hosting CNN and every other MSM network will do their best to mention guns, throw in the words “KKK” and “hate crime” into the discussion to avoid saying Islamic Terror.

Pam Geller and Robert Spencer wil not be spoken to by any major network.

Colleges will do their best to spin this, somehow blaming Trump.

Hillary Clinton and democrats will be saying Guns Guns guns and will not get any grief for it

Donald Trump will talk Islamic Terror, particularly if the shooter(s) are from abroad and will be under constant media attack for it.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim community will be pushed out front by CAIR as their regular spokes people will be very gingerly about defending homosexuality and homosexuals.

Despite their total lack of involvement every single White or Christian group that has ever said a bad thing about the LGBT community will be invoked in every media story out there.

Milo Yiannopoulos will write THE column on this attack telling gays it’s time to choose sides for their own survival. He will be mercilessly attacked for it but many gays will come to the same conclusion but not say it aloud for fear of backlash.

Democrats will continue to blame Trump for this attack.

Because the gay community was targeted the administration will be much more proactive than normal.

The leaders of the gay community will be completely torn by this attack as will Bernie Sanders supporters but the later at least will fall into line defending Islam within a week.

Christians of every denomination including the Pope will be praying for the victims, and will get no credit for it MSM will focus on Westboro Baptist instead.

The people who go nuts over the words “Blue Lives Matter” will be silent on the subject for a week or so.

I will be called a hater and a bigot for writing all of these things.

Update: The Mental Health card was played on CNN during Jake’s show, it will continue to be played to avoid going to Islam.

Update 2: I predict that the Transgender bathroom crowd will use this attack as a reason to push their bills “for the victims”.

Update 3: Exactly right

Update 4: Sally Kohn doing her best to prove me right as fast as possible



Update 5:
NBC quoting father “nothing to do with Islam” and going toward the Mass shooting angle , Brokaw urging talk about mass murder that suggests he correctly is worried about what this will do to the election.

Update 6: Two key updates Publius Forum

As the news broke that there had been a mass shooting at a gay bar in Florida, the gay community instantly erupted in accusations that Christians were responsible for the murderous act.

Read the entire post, it will be unsurprising.

And Newsbusters:

On Sunday, even after the FBI hinted the presence of a link to radical Islam, the panel on ABC’s This Week blamed the terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on heated election rhetoric and guns in America. “I think we all ought to pause with what happened in Orlando today,” stated ABC’s Matt Dowd when asked if third party candidates could gain supporters, “And if we understand that all of the hateful thoughts become hateful words become hateful actions.”

Update seven: Just woke up after 4+ hours sleep and here is what I see:

Milo had done it

What sort of a man gets so angry by displays of affection, joy, and love that he chooses to gun down innocent people in a nightclub? A Muslim man. And if this one isn’t particularly religious, imagine how much worse the faithful must be.

America has to make a choice. Does it want gay rights, women’s emancipation, and tolerance for people of all nonviolent faiths — or does it want Islam?

From what I’m seeing online the choice of the left is Islam.

and the attempts at denial have been astounding

It’s amazing.

God knows nobody on the left does or cares.

Of all the things that have happened during the Obama years the lack of outrage over what happened to Molly Norris is the thing that , in my opinion, brings more disgrace to us as a nation than any other.

I’m still angry about both what happened to this leftist that I never met and I pray that I never lose that outrage. Because until she can come out of the shadows and live openly in America again we are not a free country.

If you don’t know who Molly Norris is odds are you’re not a regular reader you can find the posts where she is mentioned here.

Red Oak MosqueBy John Ruberry

Belgium–part French and part Dutch–has been a schizophrenic nation since its founding in 1830. But after last month’s deadly terror attacks in Brussels–which is one-quarter Muslim–the country may be coming together under “European values.”

The Belgian secretary of state for asylum and migration, Theo Francken, is proposing the what is being called “a newcomer’s statement,”  which covers non-European Union migrants who stay more than three months.

The plan is expected to become law later this year.  Migrants covered by the law will be forced to sign a pledge to not only to uphold European values, but to oppose terrorism and to report any possible terror attacks.

Those not integrating properly will be kicked out of Belgium.

Despite groups such as CAIR claiming that Islam and the West have shared values, the reality is much different.

Here is just a partial list of the cultural contrasts: Europeans usually marry whoever they want–and that includes members of the same gender–whereas Muslims often rely upon arranged marriages. Religion–if they have one–is a private affair for most Europeans, Muslims follow an absolutist faith that governs all segments of their lives; in fact many Muslims favor eschewing what they dismiss as “man-made law” for sharia, that is, Islamic law, which includes the amputation of hands for thieves and the stoning of people who have extra-marital affairs. Feminists may disagree but men and women enjoy equal rights in Europe. Muslim women are subservient to men as a rule.

Europeans for the most part like the continent the way it is–many Muslims want to culturally annihilate it and make it as Islamic as the Middle East.

If the Euro-Muslims win out it is their values that will be European ones.

Europe is in for a rough ride no matter what the outcome of this clash of civilizations.

John Ruberry regularly blogs at Marathon Pundit.

Hornblower bowed, but as the Colonel remained unbending he stiffened to attention. He could recognize that type of man at once—the servant of a tyrant, and in close personal association with him, modeling his conduct not on the tyrant’s but on what he fancied should be the correct behaviour of a tyrant, far out-Heroding Herod.

C.S. Forester Flying Colors 1938

I mentioned this morning that it’s hard to comment on news stories on April 1st because you can’t tell what’s real an what’s not.

Hot Air apparently had the same problem.

I owe the MRC an apology for doubting them.

What is the story that the MRC reported that Hot Air couldn’t believe from the MRC? This:

The White House briefly pulled video of a press event on terrorism with Pres. Obama, and when it reappeared on the WhiteHouse.gov website and YouTube, the audio of Hollande’s translator goes silent, beginning with the words “Islamist terrorism,” then begins again at the end of his sentence.

Even the audio of Hollande saying the words “Islamist terrorism” in French have, apparently, been edited from the video.

It’s even worse than it sounds:

You know what the worst part is? Hollande didn’t say “Islamic terrorism,” which is the supposedly objectionable term. He said “Islamist terrorism.” “Islamist” was, I thought, a term that came into use precisely because it gave the speaker an efficient way to distinguish between “moderate Muslims” and the more jihad-minded. “Islamic” describes all things Muslim; “Islamist” describes a supremacist view in which Islam is the highest authority of the state. Many critics of Islam would dispute that there’s a meaningful distinction between those two, but Obama and Hollande certainly wouldn’t. ISIS may not be Islamic to Obama but it’s certainly Islamist. Point being, Hollande chose his words carefully here according to the White House transcript so as not to conflate the average Muslim with the jihadis he’s discussing — and the White House still censored him.

This is not just a function of Obama, it’s a function of the functionaries under him:

it is the work of those people on a lower level that contribute the most real world damage to Americans.

When President Obama is replaced in November it will be good for the country but just as good if not better will the symbolic cleaning of the Augean stables that the sweeping his radical cronies from DC will be.

As Glenn Reynolds Ed Driscoll put it:

BARACK OBAMA MORPHED INTO BASIL FAWLTY SO SLOWLY, I HARDLY EVEN NOTICED

I disagree, Barack Obama has been a joke since day 1 and frankly if I was Basil Fawlty I’d be insulted by the comparison.

Update: That was Ed Driscoll at Instapundit, not Glenn Reynolds

Update 2: Jim Treacher hits the ultimate Irony:

This is not okay. This is underhanded and cowardly. It’s positively Orwellian. Good lord, our government has lost its way so completely that I’m being forced to defend the President of France.

That’s pretty bad.

I’m back trying to get that elusive $61 a day for DaTipJar but lately I haven’t reported on my progress. Part of it has been I’ve been busy but the other part being the reports for March would be rather depressing.

If we made our $61 a day my annual Tip jar would come into today at $5185, it currently stands at $2857. That’s a deficit of $2328 an increase of nearly $1000 this month.

Or to put it bluntly As of March 26, we’ve made our goal up to Feb 15th a full 29 days behind our goal.

And it’s not due to a lack of traffic, our number in March remain consistent with the blog’s recovery from our previous doldrums as of today we are over 10,000 visits ahead of last March and on a pace to nearly meet March 2014 the final month before our unexpected traffic crash began.

Originally posted on September 11, 2006.

Two men [original link unavailable].

Based on the accounts of witnesses and loved ones’ knowledge of the two men’s characters, a devastating picture emerges of that tragic morning. [SNIP]

When the first plane hit the building, [Abe] Zelmanowitz, 55, and [Edward] Beyea, 42, both systems analysts for Blue Cross Blue Shield, fled the office with their co-workers. The elevators were not working, and Beyea, a 300-pound man in a heavy mechanized wheelchair, could not get down the stairs, which were choked with streams of panicked workers. [SNIP]

“He couldn’t have left him,” said Zelmanowitz’s sister-in-law, Evelyn Zelmanowitz of Flatlands, N.Y. “That’s what made Abe, Abe.” [SNIP]

Both men were lost in the collapse of the north tower that morning. [SNIP]

There is some indication that they had made it to the 21st floor when the building collapsed. Their bodies have not been recovered.

Why are such men hated?

On that very day, I was sad, then furious and then filled with hate. I don’t feel the latter much any more, but, occasionally, it flares up again; especially when I read about people like Misters Zelmanowitz and Beyea. Their families have nothing to bury; they only live with the memory of loved persons. And, meanwhile, other men and women are dying for having breathed in the dust of their bodies, along with the dust of their desks, their computers, the dust of Mr. Beyea’s wheelchair, the dust of the building in which they worked, and are dying from just plain grief.

Why don’t we hate them?

Do I hate them—the terrorists who murdered Misters Zelmanowitz and Beyea? No, not most of the time. Nor do I hate their liked-minded living brethren. Do I fear them? Most certainly not, but that’s merely because I learned to not fear that which can kill the body—also because I knew a long time ago that the goal of any terrorist is to instill fear. Can’t give them that particular victory.

But why shouldn’t I hate those who would murder such seemingly innocuous, harmless and loving men like Zelmanowitz and Beyea? Because it does nothing for either me or those two men; I’m here and they’re bodies are now an integral part of New York City (along with those of hundreds of others who were never found in the wreckage of the Twin Towers).

So why does the story of these two formerly living men fill me with so much anger?

Because they were simply living well and they should have been left alone to go on living the same way. That they died well and honorably—like so many others on that day—is uplifting in a way, but guess what? I would have preferred that they had gone on living anonymously rather than to have become one of the footnotes in many a 9/11 post like this one.

And that’s why I hate the terrorists. Sometimes. Okay, often.

Storm3by baldilocks

The West is repeating a mistake, a very recent one, says Daniel Greenfield. Greenfield points to the startling similarities between nascent international socialism from a century ago, the rise of Islamism in the present, and the impotence of the West in nipping both in their cradles. There are even parallel American presidents in the mix, both from the Democrat Party, and both with sympathies to the contemporaneous ideologies. Islamism has even infiltrated itself into Western institutions—exactly as the Organized Left did.

Greenfield claims that the West will lose to Islamism because it “doesn’t really want to defeat Islamic terrorism.”

It responds to terrorism while ignoring the ideology. And then it roots around for root causes that coincidentally turn out to all involve progressive policy priorities like economic inequality and global warming.

But novelist Matthew Bracken sees no such ignorant innocence in the reaction of the Organized Left to Islamic world ascendance, especially since Islamism is infiltrating the West not just ideologically, but corporeally.

The accelerated pace of the 2015 Muslim hijra [jihad by immigration] invasion [of Europe] was conceived, planned and executed by Quisling traitors comprising the elite leadership of the European branch of the international socialist movement, headquartered in Brussels. To paraphrase British nationalist patriot Paul Weston, if a farmer deliberately inserts a fox into the henhouse, who is guilty of killing the hens?

Now, today, across Europe the stage is being set for the genocide of the weak, confused and defenseless European hens. Former East German Communist functionary Angela Merkel achieves high marks at both Muslim fox insertion and German hen repression. (Meanwhile, former Soviet Communist KGB Colonel Vladimir Putin evolves to become a Russian nationalist who always advances Russian interests, at least as they are perceived by himself and his cronies).

(…)

In reality, the international socialists and the Islamist forces have agreed upon a murder pact, wherein their common enemy, the nationalists, will be removed as a threat to either of them forever. In 2016, European nations will deliberately be torched, in order to finish off their people’s last remaining notions of national pride and cultural identity. In effect, the coming conflict will constitute an agreement about the dinner menu made between a jackal, a hyena, and a supremely stupid bliss-ninny lamb, who was raised on Utopian multi-cultural fantasies. The lamb believes that by its own sweet example, the jackal and the hyena can be turned into vegetarians—but the choice for the dinner entree is already a foregone conclusion. European nationalists will be shot and stabbed in their fronts and their backs until they go down and are consumed by both of their rapacious destroyers.

(…)

If the traitor elites can imagine sufficiently far into the future, then they must surely see international socialism lining up next for its climactic struggle against Islam, which shall be fought atop the still-warm corpse of European nationalism.

Bracken says that Islam will win the follow-on conflict because the elites will have no problem converting to Islam—or, at least, pretending to. But, in the end Islam will win because

you can live without accepting a suitcase full of Euros or a juicy job offer as a bribe. But you cannot live with your head removed from your shoulders.

So which scenario is true? I know what I think, but in reality, that does not matter. There has to be another option for the endgame.

Meanwhile, in the wake of San Bernardino, Americans observe, think, and react, in spite of rhetoric and planned tyranny of our own Leftists.

UPDATE: Asking the same question at the end.

Arab American National Museum
Arab American National Museum, Dearborn

By John Ruberry

When Muslims say they condemn the radicals within their faith, a common retort is, “If that is so, then why don’t you hold anti-terrorism marches?”

Well, one was held yesterday in Dearborn, Michigan, the city with the largest Arab-American population in the Untied States. The peace rally was organized by Imam Husham Al-Husainy of the Karbalaa Islamic Center, the cultural hub of the Detroit suburb’s Muslim community. Al-Husainy was an early supporter of Operation Iraqi Freedom, although he later turned against the war. The cleric gave an invocation at a Democratic National Committee event in 2006. Al-Husainy was was the featured cleric on The Learning Channel’s reality show All American Muslim. If you are seeking a mainstream Muslim leader, Al-Husainy may be your guy. Or he may not be. More on him in a little bit.

Watch the march video here. You’ll see that many of the parade’s participants were dressed all in black, which happens to be the get-up that members Islamic State wear. Oops. There was singing–or was it chanting?–in Arabic, not English. Many of the marchers held banners and flags in Arabic–and I counted just one lonely American flag. Of course there weren’t any Israeli flags.

In a statement prior to the march, Al-Husainy declared, “We are for peace, coexistence, respecting all religions, protecting human life and believing in God.” But does that include Jews? The Dearborn cleric is a signatory of the anti-Israeli Jerusalem Document that Christian convert Walid Shoebat, a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood, calls “the ‘Mein Kampf’ of Document of Jerusalem.”

Muslims–in Dearborn and beyond–also need to forcefully speak out against the slaughter by ISIS of Christians and Yazidis. That message was also absent in the Dearborn rally.

Al-Husainy’s peace march was at best only a good first step for American Muslims to counter radical Islamic terrorism. And maybe not even that.

John Ruberry regularly blogs at Marathon Pundit. He visited Dearborn in July.

Rooster Cogburn: You can’t serve papers on a rat, baby sister. You gotta kill him or let him be.

True Grit 1969

It’s generally a bad idea to speculate about news while it’s happening but I’m going to make some predictions concerning the Paris attacks

Hungary’s border fence will cease being mocked and start being copied.

The citizen Militia that Pam Geller talked about in the German town of Magdeburg will be copied all over Europe

Incidentally no major network will invite Pam or Robert Spencer to comment on these events

Within 48 hours the major networks will have stories of how Muslims in Europe are terrified of retaliation over these attacks (It’s already started on twitter)

During tomorrow’s Democrat debate The Democrat Candidates will go out of their way to both condemn the Paris attacks & insist that these attacks have nothing to do with Islam or Muslim immigration but will insist that they will have strong safeguards for said immigrants

The College students tweeting under the Hashtags #millionstudentmarch & #amherstuprising will not grasp the foolishness of crying oppression at the same time that people are being murdered in the streets.

If any of the targets are jewish then the exodus of Jews from Europe to Israel will accelerate.

Parties opposing Muslim Immigration will begin winning majorities in Europe.

Finally I started this post with a quote about rats, you have to kill them or let them be, I predict Europe will let them be.

 

Update:  It’s been an hour since I put up this post, and the battle cry of the MSM seems to be “Remember the Narrative!”

Update 2: sooper Mexican proves me right

Update 3: An Instalanche was not one of my predictions, A follow up post the next morning on what has come true is here.

Danish flagBy John Ruberry

Western civilization is under attack by radical Islam.

Two men were murdered yesterday in Copenhagen, Denmark in separate terror shootings, although the now-deceased killer–who as of this writing has not been named–is believed to have been the gunman in both incidents.

The first shooting occurred at the “Art, Blasphemy and the Freedom of Expression Event” held at a café in the Danish capital city. Swedish cartoonist, Lars Vilks, who drew Mohammed as a dog eight years ago, is believed to have been the intended target. Vilks was not harmed, but another man was killed–and three police officers were wounded. Later that night a Jewish man was shot to death when the assassin opened fire at a synagogue–and two other cops were wounded.

Vilks is on al Qaeda’s most-wanted list.

Needless to say, the murderer is almost certainly not a Lutheran.

The murders happened a little more than a month after the jihadists murdered 12 people at the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris–the magazine regularly portrayed Muhammad in  satirical cartoon form. Two days later–although a separate terrorist was responsible–four people were murdered at a kosher market in Paris.

Folks–by now a theme should be apparent.Mosque

Now what?

Well, it’s time that Western civilization stand up for itself and avoid milquetoast defenses such as the one offered yesterday by Denmark’s prime minister, “This is not a battle between Islam and the West, and it is not a battle between Muslims and non-Muslims, but a battle between the values of freedom for the individual and a dark ideology.”

Let’s look back to the 19th century when the West wasn’t rooted–if such a thing is possible–by nihilism. The practice of sati in India, when the widow would join the funeral pyre of her husband was widespread until the British decided to end it. The commander-in-chief of colonial India, Sir Charles James Napier, had this to say:

Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.

Denmark–and the rest of the West–needs to defiantly stand up and define itself to the rest of the world and also to its still small Muslim minorities living within.

There is hope. Shortly after the Charlie Hebdo murders, the Morroco-born mayor of a Netherlands city advised those who are offended by Western free expression to “pack your bags and leave.”

That’s a great idea.

UPDATE 7:00pm EST: The killer has been identified as Omar El-Hussein.
