Both Fausta and I have written about the upcoming Puerto Rico Day Parade in which the organizers, not content to have the island in the news for fiscal bankruptcy decided to add moral bankruptcy to the list by honoring an unrepentant terrorist bombmaker involved in the killing and maiming of Americans.

Fausta noted the long list of those who had pulled out over the honoring of the Terrorist whose sentence was commuted by Obama and I added that the Manchester Bombing had augmented the list by turning on the heat for companies who, in my opinion were not so much bothered by the terrorist as but considered their association with one right after a bunch of kids getting blown up for watching a concert bad for their bottom line.

You can add Andrew Cuomo, the son of Mario the Pious, to that list as well:

“The governor’s support and long-term affection for the Puerto Rican community remains unwavering. Unfortunately, he will not be marching in this year’s parade,” Cuomo’s spokeswoman, Dani Lever, said without elaborating.

and WNBC and Telemundo too

Both WNBC and WNJU hold a long-standing commitment to the Tri-State’s Puerto Rican community, a fact exemplified through our continued support for the National Puerto Rican Day Parade’s scholarship program. Our stations have decided to limit this year’s support to the Parade’s scholarship program, and have respectfully informed the committee that we will not be participating in the 2017 Parade,” they said in a statement.

as did Univision who, like Cuomo, WNBC and Telemundo didn’t bother to give the reason why they or the others had left in their report Newsbusters tells the tale:

Univision’s newscasts hadn’t said a peep about the exodus of parade sponsors since Goya Foods first jumped ship last week and now, all of a sudden, multiple sponsors are suddenly out. Viewers are left to assume that these major sponsors just randomly abandoned the Parade, without any context whatsoever as to why…But López Rivera’s name is mentioned nowhere in the report. Embarrassingly, Univision preferred to leave that knowledge gap unfilled, rather than to admit it had made a mistake by giving so much airtime to the public rehabilitation of a convicted terrorist.

Of course in fairness to Univision and Telemundo Reuters also decided to whitewash that little old bombmaker:

Sponsors have been fleeing next month’s National Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City since organizers decided to honor an activist recently freed after more than three decades in prison for ties to a nationalist group that carried out more than 100 bombings in the 1970s and 1980s.

Oscar Lopez Rivera, 74, was convicted in 1981 of numerous charges, along with other members of the Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN), who sought to secure Puerto Rican independence from the United States.

The Terrorist becomes a “nationalist” and rather than mention the bombmaking he is convicted of “numerous charges”

But in the end no matter how many others decide, for whatever reason, they don’t want the blood on Lopez’s hands staining them one man still stands alone in support.

Bill De Blasio

“The organization he was affiliated with did things I don’t agree with, obviously, and they were illegal,” the mayor said at a press conference this week. “I don’t agree with the way he did it. But he did serve his time,” adding that López Rivera “renounced violence.”

He did? Here is what López Rivera, quoted in yesterday’s New York Times, said upon his release from a halfway house in Puerto Rico on Wednesday: “We are a colonized people, and according to international law, that says all colonized people have a right to struggle for its independence, using all methods within reach, including force.”

And outrage by the surviving victims of Lopez’s actions notwithstanding this hasn’t hurt him and might in fact have helped him.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s approval rating has just ballooned to 60 percent, up 10 percent since February. The latest Quinnipiac poll also tells us he’s likely to handily trounce his opponents for re-election.

Which only goes to show that all politics is local.

Coke, The Yankees, Jet Blue, Goya, Univision and Telemundo are all national and international companies that whose business models extend far beyond the confines of New York City and can’t be openly associating themselves with a terrorist bomber no matter how popular he might be in a loud niche market in a particular city

But in the end Bill De Blasio’s ambitions for elected office, are confined to the five boroughs of NYC, so even if a million citizens, including those who keep the city safe, object strongly, they are dwarfed by the multiple millions of liberal leftists who either don’t know, don’t care or approve of Lopez’s terrorism.

No amount of public shaming will move a man with no shame.

Exit Question: Since Andrew Cuomo’s is electorally dependent on huge margins in the city can we assume that his decision to pull out means he still has national ambitions?

Yesterday the NY Daily News joined the list of groups pulling out of NY’s Puerto Rico Day Parade for honoring Oscar Lopez Rivera:

by lionizing López Rivera as the parade’s preeminent figure, organizers have inescapably compelled sponsors and participants to join in honoring a man convicted of abetting violent terror to achieve his aims.

As Police Commissioner Jimmy O’Neill aptly said in declining to participate: “I cannot support a man who is a co-founder of an organization that engaged in over 120 bombings.”

The growing number of people pulling out of the parade has angered NY City Counsel speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito who blames the “ultra right”

“A lot of the campaign putting pressure on the sponsors to withdraw, etc., is being manipulated and organized and orchestrated from an ultra-right wing element on the island,” she told reporters at City Hall Wednesday.

However I think she’s off target, If she really wants to blame someone rather than pointing to right wingers either in the US or on the Island of Puerto Rico I think the person most responsible was born on an Island thousands of miles away from NY or Puerto Rico.

Namely I think the person most responsible is the late Salman Abedi.

Before he decided to turn an Ariana Grande concert into a graveyard for teens and children tit was still possible for some sponsors to count on the fading memory of the FALN bombings and Mr. Lopez-Rivera’s part in them to inoculate themselves from any possible outrage and to make sure that liberal Hispanics who voted overwhelming for the president who pardoned him, knew they were with them.

However,  despite the MSM valiant efforts to change the subject back to their crusade against Donald Trump as soon as possible, the images of teenage concert goers killed and maimed were broadcast all over the world,  The anguish of parents pleading for news of their daughter and then finding she was murdered in the blast could be felt by any mother or father of a child who could easily imagine themselves in that situation.

Suddenly the world was reminded of the consequences of that little old bombmaker Oscar Lopez Rivera actions and the cries of the relatives of the dead and those still alive that were maimed by those he led were not distant echos of the past but the horrifying present.

So perhaps Speaker Viverito should direct her anger not at folks on the Island or the various groups who have withdrawn their support but to the Manchester Bomber who didn’t bother to take into account the plans of people like her to normalize and honor murders before slaughtering their infidel enemies.

Closing thought:  I submit and suggest one can separate those companies, individuals and groups who are actually bothered by honoring those who mastermind mass murder and those who aren’t by noting who declined to march before the bombs in England went off.

A gunman shot at policemen on Paris’s most famous avenue, the Champs Elysées on Thursday night. Here is what is known so far:

1. France has become a prime target of the Islamic State guerrilla war on Europe. AP lists the November 13, 2015 attacks of the nightclub and vicinity os Saint Denis, and the June 13, June 14, and July 26 terrorist attacks. AP also noted the Charlie Hebdo massacre of January 7, 2015.

These terrorist attacks caused the deaths of 230 people.

2. On Thursday evening, April 20, a man shot and killed a Paris police officer and injured two other officers and a tourist on the Champs Elysées:

France’s National Police union said on Twitter that a gunman fired at a police car stopped at a red light, killing an officer.

The man got out his car to fire on the officers, according to CNN.

Pierre-Henry Brandet, the Interior Ministry spokesman, said the gunman “then ran away, managing to shoot and wound two other policemen.”

3. The shooter was identified as French national Karim Cheurfi. Sixteen years ago Cheurfi had

shot two officers in 2001 after being stopped by a police car, the source said. He was taken into custody but while being questioned grabbed another officer’s gun and shot him three times. He was convicted in that attack and had a criminal record because of involvement in violent robberies, the source said.

L’Express (link in French) reports that Cheurfi was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2003, his term was reduced to 15 years in 2005 following appeal, and was released early in 2016.

Police said he had been detained in February [2017] after threatening police but freed soon after.

Cheurfi, also known as Abu Yusuf al-Baljik (“the Belgian“), was shot dead on the scene by other policemen.

4. ISIS claimed credit: The U.K.’s Daily Mirror reports

A note backing Islamic State terrorism has been found near the body of the Champs-Elysees gunman who killed a police officer before dying in a hail of bullets.

The hardline militant group claimed the attack, which also wounded two other police officers.

5. The attack took place during a prime time TV “debate” between all 11 official presidential candidates.

The leading candidates had different reactions:

Emmanuel Macron warned that France would have to live with the terror threat “for years to come”.

François Fillon called for all campaigning to be suspended.

Marine Le Pen cancelled one campaign stop, and called for France to “immediately” take back control of its own borders from the European Union and deport all foreigners on a terror watchlist.

Phillipe Poutou blamed French politics and discrimination against people living in the banlieues.

France is holding presidential elections on Sunday, April 23rd.

Fausta Rodríguez Wertz writes in U. S. and Latin America at Fausta’s blog.

Nothing says “peaceful coexistence” like a wave of arson:

Fires have broken out from the north to the south in the last two days. The Israel Police is saying that “a wave of arson has befallen Israel” after 220 fires were reported during these past few days. The Israel Police has not ruled out arson as the cause of many of these fires. Fires have broken out from the north to the south in the last two days. The Israel Police is saying that “a wave of arson has befallen Israel” after 220 fires were reported during these past few days. The Israel Police has not ruled out arson as the cause of many of these fires. 

Not rules out arson?  ya think?.

The fires that have burned across Israel since Tuesday raged on Thursday with new areas threatened by flames as other blazes have come under control. Fifty percent of these fires were caused by repeated arson, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan told Army Radio Thursday morning.

Also on Army Radio, Shimon Ben Ner, a senior Haifa firefighter, said “I know for a fact that they tried to set fire to the department’s station in Haifa deliberately to cause the Haifa fire department to be paralyzed.”

There have been a few arrests

.Israeli police have arrested four Palestinians in connection with one of several large fires that damaged homes and prompted the evacuation of thousands of people over the past few days.

Well this is horrible but it’s not as if arabs are celebrating this kind of thing, oh wait

As Aussie Dave puts it:

Of course, I am sure there are many Arabs worldwide not celebrating the fires and even sad about them, but they are not the ones trending this topic on Twitter.

Besides their hatred of us, what these celebratory tweets also show is how little they care for the Arabs and Muslims in Israel. After all, they are also well and truly in harms way.

Also, it just goes to show you how little they really care about this land.

Update: There is also a hashtag in English #Israelisburning. Same deal.

And anyone who, understand the reality in Israel. knows that this is coming here just as it’s come, on a smaller scale to France.

Two Closing thoughts:

It will be interesting to see if Twitter that was so ready to Ban Stacy McCain and Milo will be in any hurry to ban folks celebrating the burning of Israel in arabic or english.

I’m wondering what potential DNC chief Keith Ellison will say about this? I’m sure he’ll get around to banning it just before he signs onto the bill to stop the arab “Pay to slay” business (via elder of ziyon)

As you may or may not know I have a “day” job (actually an overnight job) that I was forced to pick up when DaTipJar started falling in a bad economy. I’ve been there since last November other than a brief 3 week period that I was laid off.

A large amount of our work comes during the Christmas season and as a rule hours and staffing increases to deal with the additional volume.

Lately we’ve had a huge surge in work that has kept us busy that is much earlier than expected.

While we’ve all been grateful for this there seemed to be no rational explanation for it until I spoke to a co-worker who told me of a relative who despite having tickets to see the Carolina Panthers play this weekend, decided to give it a miss due to fear of the protesters and violence.

That’s when it hit me.

All over the country we are seeing Terror attacks at malls, black lives matter protests, looting and roads blocked and innocent pedestrians and drivers in danger by violent thugs.

Given that fact why bother to go out and put yourself at risk when you can order product online from the safety and security of your home. Not only is there no physical risk but even if a riot means a trailer carrying your product is burned or looted it is the company’s responsibility to replace it.

Granted the actual chance of getting caught up in any of these things is very very low but when you are ordering product online from your home, the chances go from low to zero.

And thus I’m guaranteed a full 40 hour work week or more for the foreseeable future, although for myself I don’t think the price of riots and terrorism is a price worth paying to get it.

Attacks in New Jersey, New York, and Minnesota on Saturday were, by definition, terrorism. Websters’ Dictionary says that terrorism is “the use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal.” Today, we can add “religious goals” into the definition as well since nearly all acts of terrorism are done in the name of Islam.

I’m old enough to remember when the dystopian vision of George Orwell’s 1984 was as impossible to see in America as communism or anarchy. Now, it seems to be a race between the three most destructive societal establishments to see which one can take hold first. At this point, the most likely winner would be the totalitarian police state of 1984 creeping quickly into the thoughts of Americans because media’s and politicians’ mastery of doublespeak is polluting the cultural awareness.

Most non-conservatives don’t even think twice when the media questions Donald Trump about why he called the explosion in New York City a “bombing.” They want us to ignore the fact that dumpsters do not blow up by themselves. They definitely want us to pretend that Trump was evil for calling it a bombing while Hillary Clinton was righteous for calling it a bombing moments later.

Even this morning after it was revealed that there was a second bomb in the form of a pressure cooker rigged with a cellular detonator, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said that it wasn’t terrorism. Keep in mind that he acknowledged it was an “intentional act” but wouldn’t say terrorism. What other motives can there for intentionally blowing up a dumpster on a busy street in the busiest city in America?

Even when Governor Andrew Cuomo comes out and admits it was terrorism, he has to add a qualifier to it by saying that it wasn’t “international” terrorism. Does that make you feel better?

Folks, that’s doublespeak. Just as Ft. Hood wasn’t “workplace violence,” the Chelsea bombing wasn’t a “waste management mishap,” though today it wouldn’t shock me to hear it called that by the press or the White House.

Pipe bombs in New Jersey are terrorism. Men asking people if they’re Muslims and referring to Allah before stabbing them is terrorism, but somehow the motives are still being questioned. It’s as if we’re so scared as a society to jump to conclusions that we won’t come to conclusions at all. This is a dangerous mentality for any nation that’s specifically targeted by multiple terrorist groups who have inserted or indoctrinated their agents into the population.

The key to the government’s success in 1984 was in how they redefined truth. History was whatever the government said it was. People were attacked for speaking the truth and rewarded for agreeing with the government’s lies. Their best weapon was the fear of consequences that they were able to impose on the people. They had to fear everyone they talked to, even family. Their best agents were children. The way that liberalism and doublespeak are spreading through the country, specifically within our education system and media, it’s no longer impossible to imagine a dystopian America within our generation.

I understand that there was a severe backlash against Muslims after 9/11. Only the truly deplorable of the country (by the real definition, not Hillary’s) would want a repeat of that. More recent history has shown us that it’s no longer a major concern. I’m sure that CAIR or a leftist activist organization can produce statistics that show a spike in hate crimes following terrorist attacks, but I would question the validity. We’ve seen enough terrorist attacks in recent years (heck, months) to know that even after confirmed attacks by radical Islamic terrorists, the instant backlash is minimal or nonexistent. The real fear, one that is actually righteous, is that of the hatred that drives people to take action well after the fact. The arson of the mosque attended by Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen didn’t happen in the hours immediately following the attack or even the days when it was hot in the news and confirmed as being a terrorist attack. It happened three months later. In other words, anyone jumping to an early conclusion had zero bearing on the follow-up crime.

People are fond of saying that “words matter” this election cycle. I agree. I just wish the media and politicians would use the right words. These acts were terrorist attacks, period. More may be coming. We must remain diligent without allowing fear to paralyze us. This means calling things by what they are. Terrorism is terrorism. Labeling it otherwise is dangerous and stupid.

Le Monde, The New York Times of France, has decided not to publish the names and photographs of terrorists—a stance that all media should take to restrict what the news outlet calls “the posthumous glorification” of these wingnuts.

In an editorial, the French news organization called upon others to follow its decision, arguing that publishing such information only leads to new recruits for the self-proclaimed Islamic State and other radical groups.

“For us, this battle cannot be considered only the cause of law enforcement, intelligence services and other people. It concerns all of society, and primarily those that constitute our media landscape,” the editorial said.

I have called for this type of self-censorship for years because an analysis of the motives of such brutal human beings does nothing but make some people feel a misguided compassion for them. We shouldn’t care about knowing their names, their goals and their trials and tribulations. Let’s dump these people on the garbage heap of hate.

Let me suggest one other change. Call these murders “homicide” attacks rather than suicide attacks. Homicide more accurately describes what they are doing.

I feel strongly about these issues—not only as a journalist but for selfish reasons. A man with a name similar to mine killed nine people last year in Oregon. For the rest of my life, this murderer’s name will come up before mine in any Internet search.

Anderson Cooper took one small step for the American media when he decided not to name the killer in the Orlando massacre.

Let’s hope other news outlets follow LeMonde and Cooper in their decision to grant these murderers what they deserve: anonymity.

By John Ruberry

This year could end up being the most tumultuous year since 1968. During that year there was of course a heated presidential election, the Democrats nominated Vice President Hubert Humphrey, who represented the status quo, one that was not especially popular. The Republicans chose a former vice president, Richard Nixon, whose critics decried as someone who presented a dark vision of America. Sound familiar?Chicago Police SUV

Missing of course in 2016 is a third-party presidential candidate who can win electoral votes; in 1968 avowed segregationist and renegade Democrat George Wallace fed on racial discord–and there is plenty of that this year, most of it brought on by leftist groups such as Black Lives Matter, which seems very keen on protesting the rare shootings of African-American criminal suspects but is largely on silent on the daily carnage in cities such as Chicago, where so far this weekend over thirty people, most of them black, have been shot. In most of these shootings it’s very likely that other blacks pulled the trigger.

What is largely forgotten about the 1968 election is that it was the first presidential contest since Reconstruction in which a southern blacks voted in large numbers.

We’ve progressed far.

The penultimate year of the turbulent 1960s also brought us the Tet Offensive of the Vietnam War, North Korea’s seizure of the USS Pueblo, the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia, the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King–the anger from the latter caused dozens of deadly riots in American cities–the May Insurrection in France, and the turmoil of the Democratic National Convention in Chicago.

I’m sure I overlooked something.

This year has seen several deadly Islamist terrorist attacks, including last month’s Orlando night club shooting and the Nice, France truck killings, two assassination tragedies–one in Dallas and the other in Louisiana–where multiple police officers were killed, “Brexit,” Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, the attempted coup in Turkey, and of course the frenzied US presidential campaign.

Remember: We still have five more months in 2016.

On the positive end, the Apollo 8 mission brought the moon within reach at the end of 1968.

Let’s hope 2016 ends with good news.

Oh, it was also in late 1968 when Star Trek’s “Plato’s Stepchildren” episode aired. Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura delivered American television’s first kiss between a black and a white, and this embrace was not an innocent peck on the cheek.

As Mitch Albom wrote in Tuesdays With Morrie, “Love wins. Always.”

John Ruberry regularly blogs at Marathon Pundit. And yes, he was alive in 1968.

Not anymore:

On Thursday morning, a young girl was murdered in her bed by an Arab terrorist in the Israeli city of Kiryat Arba. The terrorist scaled a security fence around the city and broke into the girl’s home. Hillel Yaffe Ariel was 13 years old, an aspiring dancer. Before the attack, the attacker went on Facebook and praised other terrorists, including a woman who rammed a car into a crowd in Kiryat Arba. He called her a martyr and said her name was “exalted.”

Of course I’m also old enough to remember when groups that honored people who murdered 13 year old girls in their beds were not proudly supported by the American left:

Fatah’s official Facebook page immediately posted his picture, declaring him a Martyr – “Shahid,” the highest honor achievable in Islam according to the Palestinian Authority.
WAFA, the official PA news agency, likewise honored the terrorist, referring to him as a Martyr – “Shahid.”
According to Palestinian Authority law, the family of today’s murderer will immediately start receiving a monthly PA stipend that the PA pays to the families of all the “Martyrs.”
The mother of the terrorist told a local Hebron news network that her son was “a hero” who made her “proud”:

The next time you are on a college campus and students go on about the evil jews and zions, remind them of this young girl who could have been their kid sister.

Red Oak MosqueBy John Ruberry

Muslims, many of them refugees from war, keep coming to America. Other than for the obvious reasons, the opportunity for a much better standard of living than what is expected in their home countries and the opportunity to collect government benefits, who have to wonder why this is happening.

I have some things to say to the Muslims who want to emigrate here.

If you believe in theocracy, in other words, sharia law, as many Muslims do, then America, with its long history of separating religion from government, is not for you.

Although this very recent development is still very controversial, in the United States, men can marry men and women can marry women, and yes, they have sex with each other. Millions of unmarried Americans, regardless of their sexual orientation, are sexually active. If this bothers you, then America is not for you.

Women and men in America, and teens too, often where next to no clothing. If this angers you, then America is not for you.

Dogs are beloved animal companions for many Americans. If you believe that Islam teaches you that dogs are unclean and that they should be avoided, then the United States is not for you.

Porky's Rib Fest
Porky’s Rib Fest ad, Bridgeview, IL

While not as popular as beef or chicken, pork is a popular meat choice for many Americans. If this dietary selection gives you anguish because of what is written in the Quran, then America is not for you.

About three-quarters of American adults drink alcoholic beverages several times a week. Beer commercials are a staple of sports television and are common fare on many other TV programs. If you don’t approve because Islam teaches that alcohol is forbidden, then America is not for you.

Of course in this verbal exercise I could easily substitute France for the United States and make the same point.

Amish wagon in Michigan
Amish horse carriage in Michigan

And yes, to be fair, there are members of religious groups who have lived in the United States since before its founding, such as Orthodox Jews and the Amish, who feel uncomfortable with some of these American mores I just pointed out. Mormons too. But there is a big difference in regards to Islam. The first two I just mentioned don’t proselytize–although Orthodox Jews preach to other Jews–they are what I call beehive religions. You don’t bother them and they don’t bother you.

But Islam–read your history, naysayers–is not only a proselytizing faith, it is a conquering one. But three or four million Muslims can’t overthrow America.

Yet they keep coming.

Why?

Dialogue from the otherwise worthless Jeff Bridges film Wild Bill may shine some light on this paradox. John Hurt’s character remarks to Wild Bill Hickok as they arrive in hedonistic Deadwood, “This town… I really think it’s like something out of the Bible.”

“Which part?” Hickok replies.

“The part right before God gets angry.”

Is this how Muslims view our country?
