We Have a Long Way to Go
They are using the platitude, "By doing this, the ignorant nativist protectionists will wreak havoc with the economy and diminish our ability to fight terrorism and Iran."
It will quite possibly have an effect on our economy, but it will be transient; we do not need any Muslim country in order to do the right thing when it comes to terrorism and Iran - we need only be free to fight a war like warriors, instead of P.C. sissies.
Anything - a blip in the economy or whatever adaptation to change as a result of (finally) recognizing the reality of our situation - is better than living under the dead hand of Islam.
Yet it is we, who have bothered to take the time to learn about Islam, who are being attacked by the people we used to consider our protectors and spokesmen - people like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Tony Snow, Michael Medved, Walid Phares, Mark Ginsberg, and the many self-appointed "capitalists" on shows on Fox and elsewhere.
We, the people who recognize that the goal of Islam is to establish the Kingdom of Allah on the earth by whatever means necessary, up to and including murder and mayhem if da'wa, taqiyya and kitman don't quite do the job, are being called, in effect, the enemy of the United States.
This is just the beginning of the PC effort to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the matter of the DPW matter. The campaign will continue, with unremitting effort. The drumbeat will grow louder, and eventually, whatever deals have been made in the smoke-filled back rooms of the White House will pacify even the 80% of the Dubai population that regards us as the enemy. It will even cause the "royal" family (i.e. the government) to lay low until the arm twisting, threatening, and bribery have turned things around. They are, apparently, outraged (of course) at this turn of events.
Why is it that Bush stubbornly refuses to see the problem? Well, like Rush et al., he has been infested with P.C., the most effective tool designed by our postmodernist enemy to date, and the means by which we have been made vulnerable to the greatest threat to civilization ever.
Bush, unlike the lesser folk like Rush, Tony, etc., also has another agenda, and that is the "New World Order" he learned from his father, who often spoke publicly of it. If you want to see how our educational system has been steadily eroding the idea of national sovereignty among our children, take a look at this, and be prepared to be horrified.
It explains not only his lack of concern about the danger of having any aspect of control over our ports in the hands of any foreign power, it also explains his lack of concern about border security. Only a globalist proponent of "One World," where the sovereignty of nations, including our own, is reduced in importance and power to that of our individual states, could possibly act in this manner.
There is another influence operating in Bush, and that is his inability to acknowledge that another monotheistic religion could possibly be evil. Islam is very much like Judaism and Christianity because they all believe in one God, right? Of course, he also has the "advantage" of the advice of people like Grover Norquist, rumored to have converted to Islam when he married a Muslima.
We have seen our distinctive institutions like the Supreme Court being eroded; our Constitution is in tatters; even our military uniforms have been altered to resemble those of other nations on the globalist warpath. We have seen our borders disappear, and our ports being prepared for invasion by an enemy that Bush is afraid, unwilling, or too ignorant to name.
But WE know: The enemy is Islam.
There are a very few things we can do to hold back the tide while we gird our loins to fight this thing.
First, we keep on bloggin'; the Blogosphere is the only place left where ideas can be freely exchanged.
Second, begin a very serious program of educating our children about WHY Islam is evil, and WHY we are good. The only way to do an end-run around the globalist efforst of the nihilist postmodernists running the government-controlled school system is parents. If you must have your children in a PC school, be it government or private, then teach them at home. If you possibly can, homeschool them. You may be guaranteed that without your input, they will fall victim to the current campaign to dismember the United States and everything we stand for.
Third, become as vocal and visible as you dare; bumper stickers, buttons, and, how about an adaptation of Dag's idea, wear blue ribbons (instead of scarves)? We need to know how many of us there are; it will give courage to others to "come out of the closet." With 70% of Americans disapproving the notion of the port sell-out, there are a lot of us. And go to meetings such as the one being hosted by People's Truth Forum (for more information, go to firstname.lastname@example.org). As of now, it's scheduled for April 29, in the general vicinity of D.C.
Fourth, we have some time before the next elections; we must begin a vigorous program to find and recruit candidates for office who "get it," and then make sure they win.
Fifth, in the meantime, support existing politicians who want to protect our borders and ports - and frankly, that includes people like Schumer. It doesn't matter what their motives are, at least for the moment. We are experiencing a virtual emergency.
A song in Camelot, referring to the lofty ideals held in that fairy-tale like place, had words that I find poignantly significant, given our situation: ". . .a brief, shining moment. . ."
We can fight this thing and make sure that the epitaph of the history of the United States is not ". . .a brief, shining moment. . ."
