Quote# 83170

"In my own life as a black youth growing up in the segregated South, I understand their frustration with stereotypes. Those in attendance, like most Muslim Americans, are peaceful Muslims and patriotic Americans whose good will is often drowned out by the reprehensible actions of jihadists."

So said presidential candidate Herman Cain, as he apologized for speaking the truth.

He spoke out against Shariah. He said that local people could and should resist the construction of Islamic supremacist mega-mosques. And it's true: It is not an infringement of the freedom of religion to resist a Muslim Brotherhood beachhead in your neighborhood.



So we thought Cain knew and understood the jihad threat. But now it turns out that his seemingly strong stance was just knee-jerk political opportunism.



What Cain doesn't understand is that his lack of spine and political will and conviction has done more to hurt the counter-jihad movement than had he not said anything at all. Muslims like blacks in the segregated South? Please. Muslims face no discrimination in the United States, and black in the segregated South were not plotting terror attacks and boasting about "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within," as a captured internal Muslim Brotherhood document describes its strategy in America.

Who exactly is whispering in his ear? I'd love to know. Who got to him? Obviously, the ADAMS Center connection shows that the Muslim Brotherhood got to him. But it's a good thing we found out how weak he was. Because the only thing Herman Cain had going for him as a candidate was his apparent courage in facing the real enemy within and without. In issuing this apology, he thought he saved his candidacy; in fact, he killed it.

"Muslims face no discrimination in the United States"

Interesting statement from World Nut Daily, considering their many "Obama is a Muslim and therefore evil" articles.

There were blacks in the United States that plotted terrorist attacks. As discrimination lessened, these groups no longer threaten to bomb police stations or kill racist mayors.

Here's a tip: When you stop discriminating against an oppressed people, they'll no longer have a reason to commit terrorism.

I'm surprised at Cain's comments, mainly because he's rabidly opposed to Islam and allowing Muslims to build mosques anywhere in the U.S.

Any Christian who thinks that it's not a violation of our freedom of religion to ban mosque building would be singing a different tune if anyone were advocating banning churches.

You can't really get much more ignorant than this.

Wing Nut Daily sees Muslim conspiracies whenever they see a woman wearing a hijab. To those bigoted retards every Muslim is a terrorist.
As a side issue, who cares who the fuck the readers of WND would like to see elected president? They're unlikely to find any GOP candidate chosen by the party to be suitably fundie enough.

In other words:

Blacks = Muslims = Terrorists & "they're out to get us".



We have a trifecta.

Muslims face no discrimination in the United States

Yes, and rich, white, American Christians are the most persecuted people ever in history. We've all heard this tune way too many times.

So, Muslims face no discrimination in the US? Wouldn't you feel persecuted if you weren't allowed to build a church? If people recoiled and drew their handbags closer to them when you walked by? If people said time and time again that all Christians are plotting terror attacks?
You'd raise heaven and hell if someone told you that you weren't allowed to build a church, right?

Many of the Muslims in your country have fled from sharia laws. If you made them feel welcome in their new country, they wouldn't become as homesick and nostalgic about old traditions.

Statistically speaking, the real enemy within and without are right-wing militant extremists, like Anders Behring Breivik or Usama bin Laden*.

*Wikipedia states that he said the following:
"Only the restoration of Sharia law would 'set things right' in the Muslim world, and that alternatives such as 'pan-Arabism, socialism, communism, democracy' must be opposed."

Change it to "Only the restoration of traditional Christian values would 'set things right' in the Western world, and that alternatives such as 'Liberalism, socialism, communism, homosexuality' must be opposed." and it sounds like something Rush Limbaugh or Newt Gingrich could have said.

So, Ms. Geller, if you deny that moderate, non-fundie extremist Muslims exist, then I deny that moderate, non-fundie Christians exist. The double-edged sword cuts both ways, I'm afraid.

And note that I am not an apologist for Muslim extremists. I hate the terrorists and the dictatorships and crimes against humanity of the Middle East. However, to just deny that there are Muslims who do not support terrorism is just stereotyping and bigotry of its purest form, and I cannot allow that, or else the moderates will dwindle to nothing if they really think that the West is unilaterally against their very existence.

8/21/2011 10:04:23 AM



They face no discrimination?, let me see
What about the fact that muslims were wrongly accused of the Oklahoma bombing?
what about muslims harrassed when Osama Bin Laden was killed?
What about opposition to the construction of a mosque eight blocks away from the zero zone?
What about those who "accuse" the president of being a secret muslim?
And if you think that blacks were not militant in the South, the Black Panthers have a word with you.

Oh wow, someone categorising an entire massive group of people based on the actions of a small portion, then utterly ignoring any facts or shred of reality on order to maintain their prejudice and bigotry.

I wish I was surprised.

It is not an infringement of the freedom of religion to resist a Muslim Brotherhood beachhead in your neighborhood.

Isn't that a bit like claiming to have free speech when the government censors speech and replace bad words with beeeeep?

Just like you can't claim freedom of religion if it only applies to you, you can not claim free speech when you employ censors!

Oh, WorldNutDaily, when are you going to finally drive yourselves to suicide with your impossibly bleak standards of looking at things?

Nevermind, I answered my own question: when Obama gets reelected.

And it will be YOUR FUCKING FAULT, WHIRLEDNUTDAILY!! YOU split the party. YOU and your ilk turned the right wing of the Republicans into batshit insane, unelectable conspiracy theorists that are the SHAME of this nation. YOU and your brethren are responsible for driving away the moderate Republicans and completely alienating the establishment Republicans. YOU are at fault for weakening the right wing and driving away moderates to the still-unified Democrats, who are APPALLED at your insane, inane antics!

How does it feel to fuck yourself over?

plotting terror attacks

the Muslim Brotherhood got to him


Thank God Timothy McVeigh wasn't a Muslim. Then we'd really have been screwed.

Anyway, I check under my bed every night to make sure there are no Muslim Brotherhood jihadists hiding there. Everybody should. We can't be too careful.

I bet Pamela Geller checks under her bed too.

Pam has proved once again that you're either 110% against something, in an extremely radical fashion, or you're one of its supporters.

That Pam sure ain't no fence sitter she ain't.

OMG!!!!RUN!!! Hide the children!!! Lock yourselves indoors! There are Muslims in your country and you need the be TERRIFIED beyond any logical reason!!!

But seriously...
So while discriminating them you say that there is no discrimination? How the fuck does that make sense?

The impression I get from this broad, Limbaugh, Beck, Scheissler, and the rest is that the more they hate and froth and spazz, the more orgasms they have. They can't stop it, and they're going blind.

Oh for fuck's sake I never thought I would be supporting Herman Cain.

So now he tells the truth and gets slagged off for it?

I noticed that several comments here referenced Christianity. In the interest of being fair and reasonable it should be pointed out that Ms. Geller is not and never has been a Christian.

And while I personally more or less see eye to eye with her, with regards to Islam not being good, I suspect she may have ulterior motives for stirring up "Islamophobia". In particular there are a bunch of Muslims living on the land that she believes God promised to her and her co-religionists.

And it's true: It is not an infringement of the freedom of religion to resist a Muslim Brotherhood beachhead in your neighborhood.

True. The US Constitution First Amendment says

[size=9]"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, unless that religion is Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to establish a beachhead in your neighborhood; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The thing that "got to him" isn't a "who", but a "what": his own political ambition.

He saw that he'd overestimated the size of his base of likeminded bigots when he was pilloried by the media for those comments, so he decided he'd better take his insanity back underground a bit to preserve any pathetic hope he might have to get filthy rich(er) just by running for president, the way Sarah Palin did by being on the ticket last time.

I like the part where Muslims aren't discriminated against, and there were no militant black groups in the South.

I gave this a WTF?! simply for both stating in the same post that all Muslims are terrorists AND that Muslims suffer from no persecution at all.
