Looks like not many folks are taking Sheik Ellison as a threat. However, I am. Lefties, like "Teresa", who I was debating with over in the comment section at Boker Tov, Boulder, avoid the real questions about Islam, because then it would mean confronting the nature of Islam itself. Islam is more than pretty fabrics and mosaic tiles. Islam is opposed to individual liberties. It is opposed to freedom of speech. It is opposed to equality for women. It is opposed to the equal treatment of Muslims and non-Muslims. The tenets of Islam, as expressed in the Koran that Ellison swore on, contradict the institutions of this country. Like Hugh Fitzgerald says, non-Muslims are not brought up to undo the legal, political and traditional institutions of the United States. Who cares that it was Jefferson's Koran that Ellison swore on? Everyone else in the days of Thomas Jefferson, including John Quincy Adams, John Ledyard, William Eaton and Mordechai Noah had opinions based on personal interactions with the Barbary pirates. You will not find any offering about Islam from any one of them similar in any way to what lefties tell us Islam is. Islam is fascism. Islam at its core is lethally militaristic and institutionalizes homicide. There is an Islamic crusade going on but Lefties refuse to see it. Lefties represent the people who are undermining my country, who are playing politics while the enemy commits war. Lefties want the US to lose this war. It's all about George Bush according to the Lefties. We know that George Bush will be leaving office in two years, but the enemy won't be leaving. The Islamonazis who kidnapped the people of Iran, the people of Syria, of Africa, of Darfur, of Europe, of Southeast Asia, of the Pacific, are not going anywhere - unless we push them over the cliff. The Lefties are part of a group who is obsessed with Bush and they hope that he loses the war in Iraq and they will stop at nothing as long as we lose the war. They won't care about anything, as long as Bush loses. But I care, because Lefties, who pose as academics, are really academic frauds. They are embracing the Islamonazi doctrine and I find that detestable. Lefties ultimately represent the weakest side of America in a world full of enemies that only respect strength. But I ask Lefties and Democrats, why, when Ahmadinjehad speaks, why don't you believe him? When Nasrallah speaks, why don't you believe him? When bin Laden speaks, why don't you believe him? This is post-911, there is no excuse for Lefties not to believe them. We did exactly what Lefties wanted us to do during the Clinton administration pre-911. We bombed former Yugoslavia, we ignored the attacks on American civilians and we paid a price fore it. Yet, Lefties are calling for us to behave now just like we did pre-911. It's utter stupidity. So what if a couple of more buildings go down. So what if a couple of more airliners go down. The deaths of innocents caused by Muslim terror are permanent and irreversible, whereas the hardships faced by some Muslims in this country are temporary, reversible and will cease when attempts to kill Jews and Americans here and overseas are themselves brought to a halt. I'm personally tired of having to endure the trumped-up concoction of superstitions and deceit which is Islam, merely because the world was cursed by having its main energy source located under the feet of savages.
Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison has been named to the House Judiciary Committee, a panel that has oversight over issues such as civil liberties, immigration and courts....
"I look forward to pursuing a progressive agenda in the committee, including the restoration of American citizen's civil liberties that have come under increasing attack over the past six years," said Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress.
Ellison, a freshman lawmaker, said this week he'd like to see a ban on racial profiling, an issue that could come up in the Judiciary Committee.
Wake up, America!
