A sacred American tradition is under attack in America by Islam. If you know anything about Islam, this is not a great shock. However, if we are to save America, we must fight back. What is the attack? It is Islam’s attack against free speech.
Anytime anyone criticizes Islam in a public forum the Islamists attack them. The most recent example of this is the Bare Naked Islam website. The Bare Naked Islam website pulled no punches when it came to reporting on the horrors of Islam. Occasionally, some of the comments from readers were over the top, but that will happen on any site that has a controversial subject.
Criticizing Islam is absolutely forbidden in Islamic countries, and the Islamists want the same thing here in America. CAIR, the counsel for American Islamic Relations, led the attack against Bare Naked Islam. WordPress hosted bare Naked Islam. According to Hillbuzz.org, WordPress deleted the Bare Naked Islam site after threats of violence against WordPress employees by Islamists.
CAIR repeatedly filed complaints with WordPress about Bare Naked Islam and WordPress has now deleted the site. Much of CAIR’s wrath towards Bare Naked Islam was apparently generated because of Bare Naked Islam’s participation in the boycott of sponsors for TLC’s propaganda show, “All American Muslim.”
Many critics scream this is an attack on the First Amendment. It is not an assault on the First Amendment. Islam is not the government. However, it is an attack on the underpinnings of freedom and liberty in this country.
Islam is an ideology of evil. It is another form of tyranny. The first thing tyrants abolish is the right of the people to speak freely. This is the goal of Islam in this country. The Islamists do not want the people of America to be able to speak freely, especially when it comes to the subject of Islam.
The Islamists do not want the millions of Americans to know exactly how EVIL it is. From pedophilia, to misogyny to genocide, Islam is pretty much an encyclopedia of evil
The ultimate goal of Islam is a world wide Islamic state. That makes Islam not that different from Nazism, Communism and other evil ideologies that have wanted to conquer the world.
We conservatives must stand against Islam and its tyranny.
Islam and freedom are not compatible. For Islam to triumph, freedom by definition must loose.
Hopefully the Bare Naked Islam site will be back up shortly and when it is, we at Tea Party Nation let everyone know.
2012 is upon us. We must all stand vigilant and make certain that 2012 is a year in which freedom and liberty advance. ~Steve~ H/T Grouchy and/ https://www.teapartynation.com/forum/topics/when-islam-attacks
From Des Moines Register, 7:30 pm, Dec. 31, 2011:
Mitt Romney tops the latest Des Moines Register Iowa Poll in the closing days before the Iowa caucuses, but Ron Paul and Rick Santorum are poised within striking distance.
The poll, conducted Tuesday through Friday, shows:
Mitt Romney: 24%
Ron Paul: 22%
Rick Santorum: 15%
Newt Gingrich: 12%
Rick Perry: 11%
Michele Bachmann: 7%
But the four-day results don’t reflect just how quickly momentum is shifting in a race that has remained highly fluid for months. If the final two days of polling are considered separately, Santorum rises to second place, with 21%, pushing Paul to third, at 18%. Romney remains the same, at 24%.
“Momentum’s name is Rick Santorum,” said the Register’s pollster, J. Ann Selzer.
Another sign of the race’s volatility: 41% of likely caucusgoers say they could still be persuaded to change their minds.
Selzer & Co. of Des Moines conducted the poll of 602 likely Republican caucusgoers, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. In the final two days of polling, 302 likely caucusgoers were interviewed, with a margin of error of plus or minus 5.6 percentage points.
The first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, which take place Tuesday evening, kick off voting in the presidential nominating process. The Iowa Poll, a Register exclusive since 1943, is a much-watched indicator of how candidates are faring in the leadoff caucus state. ~Eowyn
As the days dwindle to a few before next Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses, GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney’s flip-flop record on abortion is the subject of a recent burst of text messages received by Iowans.
Since Romney is not just a Mormon but a former pastor (“lay clergy”) and ward bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the LDS’ position on abortion should therefore govern his stance on abortion.
Fellowship of the Minds’ co-founder Joan (“Joandarc”) grew up in Salt Lake City and is more knowledgeable about the Mormon faith than I am. The following is from her research into the LDS Church’s official stance on abortion. ~Eowyn
According to the book, When Mormons Call, published by Catholic Answers, pages 54 and 55, the actual position of Mormonism on this subject is as follows:
Abortion: Compare the [LDS] church’s statement in its 1988 handbook, Gospel Principles, with that of the 1992 edition:
1988 edition: There is no excuse for abortion unless the life of the mother is seriously threatened (241).
1992 edition: There is seldom any excuse for abortion. The only exceptions are when — 1. Pregnancy has resulted from incest or rape; 2. The life of the woman is in jeopardy in the opinion of competent medical authority; or 3. The fetus is known, by competent medical authority, to have severe defects that will not allow the baby to survive beyond birth. (251).
Prior to the 1992 printing, the Mormon church permitted abortion if the mother’s life were seriously threatened. While appearing stringent, this is a pro-abortion stand. It permitted the killing of the innocent unborn child to “save” the life of the mother–a situation that medical science has rendered virtually nonexistent and which sound moral theology has always rejected as “doing evil that goood may come.”
The more recent Mormon position is of course the “politically correct” one. Since church policy is determined by divine revelation, apparently God has loosened His law.
Ask your Mormon acquaintances about a “fetus.” Chances are, they’ll quote (correctly) leaders’ statements referring to the unborn “child” and innocent “human baby.” Then ask them about their church’s position on abortion. They’ll probably say, “We’re pro-life,” or “Only in the case of the mother’s life.” Then point out the true Mormon position and ask them to justify it. How can the church be so “pro-life” yet permit the killing of an “innocent child” in so many cases?”
With the Iowa caucuses just days away, GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney’s flip-flop record on abortion is once again being questioned.
Alex Moe reports for NBC, Dec 27, 2011, that Republicans in Iowa received a text message to their cell phones questioning Romney’s anti-abortion credentials. Upon calling the 515 area-code number the text message lists, an automated message on the other end includes hearing Romney’s answer during a debate when he ran for U.S. Senate 17 years ago.
An unidentified man’s voice says as the automated message begins:
“Mitt Romney on life. [Romney’s voice is heard next, a recording from an Oct. 25, 1994 Massachusetts senate debate:] As a nation, we recognize the right of all people to believe as they want and not to impose our beliefs on other people. I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. I have since the time that my mom took that position when she ran in 1970 as a U.S. Senate candidate. I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years that we should sustain and support it. And I sustain and support that law and the right of a women to make that choice.” Here is video from C-Span from that ’94 Massachusetts Senate debate where the response from Romney originates. Neither the text message nor the automated message gives any indication who sent or paid for the messages.
In 2005, however, Romney changed his position from supporting abortion rights to opposing them.
Romney Communications Director Gail Gitcho responded to the text messages that abortion is the one substantial issue Romney has admitted he has changed his position. He is now pro-life — a position on which he is not going to change. Mitt Romney is a Mormon — a former pastor (“lay clergy”) and ward bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The LDS’ position on abortion should therefore govern his stance on abortion. For that, please see Joan’s post, “The Mormon Church’s Stance on Abortion.” ~Eowyn
NY Post: After refusing to settle for less than $1 million to perform at a New Year’s Eve party, Kanye West went back on a hunt to land a gig two days before the ball drops. “He doesn’t want to get on a stage for less than a mil,” a source said. The “Watch the Throne” rapper is considering heading west to Vegas to DJ at an Eve bash — but at a much lower rate. West tweeted Tuesday, “I kinda wanna DJ somewhere this New Years,” and then, perhaps to boost business, tweeted again Wednesday, “My New Years DJ name is gone be YEEZY WORLD PEACE! If you book me you have to put YEEZY WORLD PEACE on the E-vite. Or I ain’t spinning.” While the jet-set crowd has been vacationing in the tropics, West has been holed up in a studio on Broadway and Spring Street, working on his “G.O.O.D” album and a music video. “He’s been picking creative people from all over and asking them to work with him,” a source said, adding that they are “a very eclectic group of music people that are very far from his old crew.” A rep for West didn’t get back to us.
Yep, this guy who supports OWS has a net worth of $70 million. Yet he can’t be bothered to DJ for no less than $1 million? And Wall Street bankers are the greedy ones…
Two campers are walking through the woods when a huge brown bear suddenly appears in the clearing about 50 feet in front of them. The bear sees the campers and begins to head toward them. The first guys drops his backpack, digs out a pair of sneakers, and frantically begins to put them on. The second guys says, “What are you doing? Sneakers won’t help you outrun that bear.” “I don’t need to outrun the bear,” the first guy says. “I just need to outrun you.” ———————————————————————————— Two guys are walking down the street when a mugger approaches them and demands their money. They both grudgingly pull out their wallets and begin taking out their cash. Just then one guy turns to the other and hands him a bill. “Here’s that $20 I owe you,” he says ~Steve~ A personal note: A big “thank you” to everyone who helped me out. Without you I’m nuttin’. Happy New Year to every one at FOTM!
