Norway Youth Camp - a Center for Leftist Indoctrination? - UPDATED AT BOTTOM OF POST


From Stogie
Glenn Beck was heavily criticized for saying that the Norwegian youth camp (the one targeted by the Norway shooter) resembled a "Hitler Youth Camp."  Beck may have been a bit too strong in drawing such a parallel, but he was partially right.  The purpose of the camp was to indoctrinate young people into leftist doctrines.  On the day before the shootings, the youth on the island displayed a large banner saying "Boikott Israel."

The leftist bent of the camp may be why the shooter selected it as a target.
Bare Naked Islam has the story.

UPDATE - Jason Pappas comment (and I agree):
I view Beck's "Hitler Youth" comment in the same like as Ward Churchill's "little Eichmanns" description of the WTC victims. It's reprehensible.

I know the Norwegian Labor Party deserves criticism but now in the same breath as one talks about the Breivik atrocity and certainly not with the inflammatory rhetoric that Beck uses.

I think the Norwegian diplomat's comment about shahid attacks against Jews in Israel not being as bad as Breivik (see Front Page Magazine) exposes his loss of moral high ground. But that doesn't diminish the condemnation of Breivik to any degree. It's an unconditional evil.
I do not mean to draw a moral equivalency between Breivik and the Norwegian Labor Party Youth Camp. No moral equivalence exists. However, let us be clear, teaching children that Israel is an Apartheid State is setting the wheels in motion towards an eventual  delegitimization of Israel which is intended to lead to the destruction of Israel as a Jewish state, and would lead to the purposeful deaths of Jews at the hands of Arab Muslims who have been bred to hate them by virulently anti-Semitic Palestinian and Hiz'b'allah media.

In this sense, I think it is reasonable to compare the Labor Party Youth Camp's specific indoctrination of Israel-hate to the Hitler Youth Camp's teaching of abject Jew-hate. It must be noted that comparison is not the same thing as equivalence. However, by way of comparison, I think we have found two things of the same kind.

Fire away, if you disagree. You guys know me well enough to know, I am more than up for it.

"Unless there is a compromise or they accept my bill, we’re headed for economic disaster”

Social Security Poster: old manImage via Wikipedia

Of course Sen Reid, that reads the other way around as well. Unless there is a compromise or you accept the ALREADY PASSED House Bill you have steered the nation towards disaster (maybe, if no hyperbole has been attached by the admin)

However the president already REJECTED, last weekend, the very compromises between your wants, Reid and republican senators.

As an American, when I hear Obama use the words ‘fair’ and ‘balanced’ I like to thin a second look is required since we all want to be ‘fair’.

But just suppose:

WHAT IF ‘FAIR’ WILL NOT SOLVE THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS WE HAVE?

I am 62 in Dec. - so this is near.

I cannot help but feel that the UNAVOIDABLE disaster brought about by unsustainable spending will result from Social Security and Medicare payments which are GOING TO DESTROY THE NATION especially as defense spending and R&D must decline, and then there will be neither for ANYONE.

Flat Tax on people and corporations.

Fix Free Trade so that is enforces equal working conditions WHERE PRODUCTS ARE MADE

Raise retirement, and therefore Medicare age.

DO IT NOW.

NOW NOW NOW

The president or leader who can effectively explain this, or programs which TRULY ACHIEVE the equivalent result will be ABRAHAM LINCOLN in 2111 AD.

"Help! I'm Being Enslaved By My Husband"

A woman in a Burqa goes up to a Rabbi and starts yelling at him:


"Allah allah allah ulululul".


Rabbi says, "What is it with you people? Is that all you have to say for yourselves?"


So, the woman takes her head covering off, looks fiercely at the Rabbi, and screams,


"I SAID, "HELP!!!  I'M BEING ENSLAVED BY MY HUSBAND. I SEEK ASYLUM!""

The tea party's terrorist tactics
By: William Yeomans
July 29, 2011 08:22 AM EDT

It has become commonplace to call the tea party faction in the Househostage takers.” But they have now become full-blown terrorists.

They have joined the villains of American history who have been sufficiently craven to inflict massive harm on innocent victims to achieve their political goals. A strong America has always stood firm in the face of terrorism. That tradition is in jeopardy, as Congress and President Barack careen toward an uncertain outcome in the tea party- manufactured debt crisis.

As we stumble closer to Aug. 2, it has become clear that many in the tea party are willing to inflict massive harm on the American people to obtain their political objective of a severely shrunken federal government. Their persistence in rejecting compromise, even as the economic effects of the phony crisis they have created mount, has taken their radicalism beyond tough negotiating, beyond even hostage-taking.

As markets fall in anticipation that there may not be a timely resolution; as credit agencies issue dire warnings that the U.S. political system has become so dysfunctional that a credit downgrade may be inevitable, and as America looks weakened in the eyes of the world, the tea party’s hostage-taking has evolved into the intentional infliction of harm on innocent Americans to achieve a political objective – terrorism.

Terrorism is a tough term, but, unfortunately, it describes tea party tactics precisely. Their first step was to vow not to vote to raise the debt ceiling.

Here, as in many radical factions, there was a split between the purists and the pragmatists. Pragmatists vowed not to raise the ceiling unless draconian cuts were made in the federal government.

Purists didn’t bother with an “unless.” They, including presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachman (R-Minn.), were willing to let the entire edifice come crashing down — hiding behind magical thinking that allowed them to deny that anything horrible would happen if the ceiling were not raised.

Out of this vow grew the phony linkage between raising the debt ceiling and addressing the deficit. Raising the debt ceiling, of course, has nothing to do with addressing the deficit. It simply allows the federal government to pay debts that have already been incurred, based on expenditures that Congress has already authorized.

It lets the federal government pay its bills – an act of basic responsibility that every American — conservative and liberal — should embrace. Raising the ceiling is a pro forma act that Congress has performed repeatedly through Republican and Democratic administrations. Every president – from Ronald Reagan to Bill Clinton – has labeled failure to raise it unthinkable, because to do so would be to intentionally inflict harm on America.

The harm is, in part, unknowable because we have always resisted any temptation to run the experiment of failing to raise the ceiling. Even if the federal government could avoid default on its loan obligations for an uncertain time, the harm would be immense. The president would have to prioritize federal expenditures, choosing whether to send Social Security checks, pay federal employees ranging from FBI agents to food inspectors to troops in the field, make Medicare payments, provide for veterans, collect taxes and on and on.

Even in the absence of default, credit agencies would almost surely downgrade our credit worthiness, producing increases in interest rates that would slow the economy, increase unemployment and force families into foreclosure and bankruptcy.

As the markets dropped, families would watch their retirement and education savings and their dreams disappear.

Rather than reject the unthinkable, the tea party harnessed this potential harm as its weapon of mass destruction.

For pragmatists, it allowed a hostage-taking. The pragmatists threatened to defeat a raise in the debt ceiling unless Congress and President Barack Obama rejected taxes on the wealthy and accepted budget cuts that would move the country toward the tea party’s idealized vision of an America. Their dream is an alternate version of the United States — before the New Deal, the Great Society and civil rights laws alleviated massive inequality and injustice — and extended American opportunity.

The tea party faction could not achieve these goals through straight up democratic means because of their unpopularity. So it resorted to its threat of mass destruction. They were able to do so because they formed a disciplined bloc that gave them leverage over the House leadership and because of the threat that members who did not go along would face primary challenges from the right.

Hard-core tea party members were empowered by their oft-repeated disdain for reelection. They were liberated to pursue their radical course because they were freed from the traditional constraint on members of Congress, imposed by the need to face the voters.

Their goals were also served by the Republican Party’s success in selling the notion that the country faces an urgent debt crisis. Nearly every economist agrees that we face a long-term debt problem, but there is no reason it must be addressed by Aug. 2.

The concern that our credit may be downgraded if we don’t enact an immediate debt reduction plan is driven almost entirely by the loss of credibility in our political system — engendered by the phony frenzy surrounding the debt ceiling legislation.

While most economists agree that we need to address long-term debt issues, many recognize that our immediate crisis is high unemployment and economic stagnation, conditions that will most likely be exacerbated by sucking hundreds of billions of dollars out of the economy in the short-term.

The challenge for America is to stand firm in the face of terrorism, no matter the source.

Tea party members must reassess their distorted vision of patriotism and join true patriots in Congress in raising the debt ceiling promptly until 2013, without inflicting further economic harm on already struggling Americans.

The president should insist on a clean debt ceiling bill, Congress should get it to him — as it has dozens of times in the past — and the president should sign it promptly. So the nation can get on with addressing the truly significant problems that it faces.

Breivik Was a Fan of Neo-Eugenics

From Jihad Watch:
That Breivik’s mixed bag of writings reflects, explicitly and conspicuously, the thought of a distinguished Princeton University professor, Lee Silver, has so far gone almost totally unacknowledged.

Not totally because my Discovery Institute colleague John West picked it up and has written about it searchingly. Who is Lee Silver? He’s the evolutionary biologist and fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science who invented the term and concept of “reprogenetics,” a new spin on the old idea of eugenics as a means to perfect the human race. In his manifesto, Breivik goes on about this idea, citing Silver by name along with his book Remaking Eden: How Genetic Engineering and Cloning Will Transform the American Family, copying passages from Wikipedia that elaborate on Silver’s proposed scheme.

Breivik likes that in contrast to the old pseudoscience of eugenics ...

...what of the sinister scientism to which Breivik, in fact, subscribed and that he wrote about in detail? He expounds on the importance of government funding for science, that feeding the poor must not take precedence over science, that feeding the Third World poor is in fact a bad idea, that the size of the human population needs to be halved (through voluntary means!), that “social Darwinism” got a bum rap, that “[t]he never-ending collective pursuit for scientific evolution and perfection should become the benchmark and essence of our existence.”

From the self-interview section of Breivik’s manifesto:

“Q: What should be our civilizational objectives, how do you envision a perfect Europe?

“A: ‘Logic’ and rationalist thought (a certain degree of national Darwinism) should be the fundament of our societies.” This dark vision is not his invention. It’s a spin-off of what he aptly calls “National Darwinism,” which got its start in the writing of Charles Darwin. While a gentle soul in person and wishing no harm to anyone, Darwin envisioned a picture of the world that equates “extermination” (a favorite word of Darwin’s) with biological advancement. I’ve written elsewhere about the historical, moral consequences of Darwinism, quite apart from any explanatory value of natural selection in biology.

27 Terrorists deemed to Hold Aviation Licenses


From Will at The Other News:

(NYTimes).WASHINGTON — The Transportation Security Administration cannot determine the real identities of thousands of the people to whom the Federal Aviation Administration has issued licenses as pilots and aircraft mechanics, but has located an additional 27 who should not have held them because of terrorist connections, according to an internal report by the Department of Homeland Security.

The report was requested two years ago by four senators after a private data analysis company in New York determined that the man convicted of bombing Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988 still held an F.A.A. license, as did a man caught trying to smuggle military equipment to Hezbollah in Lebanon, a man convicted of trying to make an airborne poison in his basement and a self-described eco-terrorist who fled the country after he was indicted on a charge of arson.

The F.A.A. and the Department of Homeland Security were supposed to scour the list of licensed pilots, mechanics and flight dispatchers for terrorists under a law approved by Congress after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but they have had difficulties doing so despite having access to much more information than the private company. 

The new report, by the inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security, found that the F.A.A. had Social Security numbers of only about 750,000 people out of the 1.3 million names in its Airmen Registry, and that among those for whom it had numbers, more than 15,000 of them did not match the Social Security database for name, sex or date of birth.

By law, the F.A.A. cannot require a Social Security number, the report noted, and as a result, “T.S.A. may not identify U.S. citizens who have provided false biographic information to receive an airman certificate.” Not all of the discrepancies represent a potential security threat; the report said that more extensive study over the past few years found that 8,000 of the license holders were dead.

The report offers no details about the 27 individuals whose certificates were canceled, but does indicate the poor state of federal records, almost a decade after the Sept. 11 attacks.  

An initial computer scan found about 29,000 certificates that matched names on the government’s Terrorist Screening Database, but further study found that 28,500 of the matches were invalid; 506 were turned over for closer scrutiny, yielding the 27 names.

The report does not mention any technique other than matching names. The New York company, Safe Banking Systems in Mineola, found some of the suspect individuals by matching names. But it contends that names are a poor identifier; they can be misspelled or, if they originate in a non-Roman alphabet, they can be spelled inconsistently when rendered in English.

The Libyan convicted in the Lockerbie bombing was listed in F.A.A. records as Abdelbaset Elmegrahi; on the F.B.I.’s 10 Most Wanted list, he was Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi. Safe Banking Systems, using only publicly available data, found some suspect individuals by matching addresses or other data. 

John D. Rockefeller IV, one of the senators who requested the investigation, said Thursday that the report “shows that almost 10 years after the 9/11 attacks, the F.A.A. is still not doing enough to verify the identity of airman’s certificate holders and that some certificate holders have connections to terrorism.”

Mr. Rockefeller, who is a West Virginia Democrat and chairman of an aviation subcommittee, said that the F.A.A. and Homeland Security were making progress, but that “issuing certificates to people who pose a threat to our aviation system is simply unacceptable.”

Governor Kasich: We Reduced The Biggest Deficit In State History To Zero and Lowered Taxes For Everyone

From Ace

Kasich is one of the more unpopular governors in the country, with a 35% approval rate, and 50% disapproving.

But he just balanced the budget -- having inherited an $8 billion deficit, the largest in the history of Ohio -- so maybe this will help some. (Video below the fold, or at that link.)

Ohio leans Republican. It shows the magnitude of the political problem we face when even a Republican-leaning state gets all crankypants about actual cuts, which they claim they want.

But he's put fiscal discipline into practice and has only been in office since January. Assuming this creates a better condition for job creation, he just might see those numbers reversing.

The Sacramento Bee:

Improving Mexican economy draws undocumented immigrants home from California
By Stephen Magagnini

There are fewer undocumented immigrants in California – and the Sacramento region – because many are now finding the American dream south of the border.
"It's now easier to buy homes on credit, find a job and access higher education in Mexico," Sacramento's Mexican consul general, Carlos González Gutiérrez, said Wednesday. "We have become a middle-class country."
Mexico's unemployment rate is now 4.9 percent, compared with 9.4 percent joblessness in the United States.

An estimated 300,000 undocumented immigrants have left California since 2008, though the remaining 2.6 million still make up 7 percent of the population and 9 percent of the labor force, according to the Public Policy Institute of California.

Among metropolitan areas with more than 1 million residents, Sacramento County ranks among the lowest, with an unauthorized population of 4.6 percent of its 1.4 million residents in 2008, according to Laura Hill, a demographer with the PPIC.

The Sacramento region, suffering from 12.3 percent unemployment and the construction bust, may have triggered a large exodus of undocumented immigrants, González Gutiérrez said.

The best-paid jobs for undocumented migrants are in the building industry, "and because of the severe crisis in the construction business here, their first response has been to move into the service industry," González Gutiérrez said. "But that has its limits. Then, they move to other areas in the U.S. to find better jobs – or back to Mexico."

Hill said it's hard to know whether the benefit of having fewer undocumented migrants outweighs the cost to employers and taxpayers.

California may have to provide less free education to the children of undocumented immigrants and less emergency medical care, she said, but it will also get less tax revenue.

In 2008, at least 836,100 undocumented immigrants filed U.S. tax returns in California using individual tax identification numbers known as ITINS, said Hill, who conducted the tax survey.

Based on those tax returns, the study found there were 65,000 undocumented immigrants in Sacramento County that year, far fewer than in many other big counties.

Sacramento's undocumented population ranked 10th in the state that year, behind Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Santa Clara, San Bernardino, Riverside, Alameda, Contra Costa and Ventura.

There were an estimated 12,000 undocumented immigrants in Yolo County; 9,000 in the Sutter-Yuba area; and 8,000 in Placer County.

An analysis of local ZIP codes showed that Sacramento (95815, 95823, 95824), West Sacramento (95605), Clarksburg (95612), Esparto (95627), Guinda (95637), Knights Landing (95645), Winters (95694) and Woodland (95776) each had an undocumented population of 10 percent to 15 percent.

Yolo County relies heavily on migrant workers to grow and harvest crops.

"People in construction are now turning to agriculture; it's the start of the tomato season so the harvesters will be jump-started pretty soon," said Woodland Mayor Art Pimentel, whose 55,000 residents are 48 percent Latino, some of them undocumented.

Some aren't sticking around for the upcoming tomato harvest, said Sylvina Frausto, secretary of Holy Rosary Church in Woodland. "Some have a small parcel in Mexico. They own their own home there, so instead of renting here they go back to their small business there."

Many raise animals, run grocery stores or sell fruits and goods on street corners.

"They're going back home because they can't get medical help or government assistance anymore," Frausto said, "And when it's getting so difficult for them to find a job without proper documentation, it's pushing them away."

Anita Barnes, director of La Familia Counseling Center on Franklin Boulevard in Sacramento, said she recently spoke to a high school graduate who had lost his job in a restaurant and was thinking of going back to Mexico.

"He came over with his mom, who was in the process of losing her restaurant job," Barnes said. "It's frightening, especially for the children. They feel this is their country, they don't know anything else, and they find they can't get driver's licenses or jobs."

As its economy rebounds, Mexico "is becoming a better option than it was in the past, but you still have to find a job and reconnect," Barnes said.

While the weakened U.S. economy, rising deportations and tougher border enforcement have led to fewer undocumented migrants, changes in Mexico are playing a significant role, González Gutiérrez said.

Mexico's average standard of living – including health, education and per capita income – is now higher than those in Russia, China and India, according to the United Nations.

Mexico's growing middle class "reduces the appetites to come because there are simply many more options" at home, González Gutiérrez said. "Most people who decided to migrate already have a job in Mexico and tend to be the most ambitious and attracted to the income gap between the U.S. and Mexico."

Mexico's economy is growing at 4 percent to 5 percent, benefiting from low inflation, exports and a strong banking system, the consul said.

Mexico's birthrate is also declining sharply. "As a natural consequence of us transforming from a rural to an urban society, we are running out of Mexicans to export," González Gutiérrez said. "Our society's growing at a rate of 2.1 children per woman – in the 1970s it was more than five."

Once the U.S. economy recovers, the flow of migrants moving north "may go up again, although most likely they will not reach the peak levels we saw in the first half of the decade," González Gutiérrez said.

International Business Times:

Top Four Military Chiefs in Turkey Resign
July 29, 2011 1:21 PM EDT

The chiefs of Turkey’s armed forces, army, navy and air force have all resigned en masse, according to the Anatolia news agency.

While the motivation for such an unusual and sudden wave of resignations is not yet known, the tension between the ruling government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the secular military has festered for years. The government has prosecuted hundreds of military officers on charges of seeking to overthrow the Ankara government.

The chief of general staff, the top military commander in Turkey, Gen. Işık Koşaner, reportedly conferred with Erdogan on numerous occasions recently.

The Anatolia news service said Kosaner was quitting "as he saw it as necessary.” He was appointed to that post only one year ago.

Meanwhile, Turkey’s Supreme Military Council, which makes decisions on promotions for officers, is scheduled to meet next week. Reportedly, Ankara was incensed that some senior officers who are imprisoned or facing trial for plotting to overthrow the government was slated for promotions.

The Turkish military is viewed as a bastion of secularism against any signs of religious ferment in the state government. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AK Party) has long been accused of having a pro-Islamic agenda – something it has repeatedly denied.

BBC:

Egypt uprising: Islamists lead Tahrir Square rally

Jon Leyne at the protest: "It seems the Islamists and the military rulers have a shared interest in maintaining the old order"


Tens of thousands of people have packed Cairo's Tahrir Square, after the first call by Islamist leaders for nationwide demonstrations since President Hosni Mubarak was overthrown in February.

Many protesters - dominated by Muslim Brotherhood supporters - are calling for an Islamic state and Sharia law.

Correspondents say the rallies will be a worrying development for secularists.

The Brotherhood is the most organised political force in Egypt, although it was not prominent in the revolution.

Tensions have been running high between Egypt's Islamist and secular groups, who are at odds over the transition to democracy in the Arab world's most populated country.

Turning point?

Liberal groups first want guarantees of a constitution that will protect religious freedom and personal rights, whereas Islamists want speedy elections and a recognition of Islam - in one form or another - in the new Egyptian state.

Now, the Islamists want their voice to be heard and are showing their muscle for the first time since Mr Mubarak stepped down on 11 February, says the BBC's Jon Leyne in Cairo.

Although the Muslim Brotherhood can turn out huge crowds by rallying its supporters at mosques, it does not necessarily represent the majority of Egyptians and is predicted to win around 20% of the vote in an election, our correspondent says.

There was little sign of any secular groups at Friday's rally, he says, adding that it will be interesting to see how they re-group after today's events.

Since early July, the mainly secular protesters had camped out in Tahrir Square - the epicentre of protests that toppled Mr Mubarak - to denounce the ruling military council over the slow pace of reform.

Islamist groups had for the most part stayed away from the sit-in. Last week, they held their own demonstration and accused the Tahrir protesters of going against the country's "Islamic identity", the AFP news agency reports.

But with Islamists and the more conservative Salafist groups now filling Tahrir Square, it could mark a turning point in Egypt's post-revolution period, our correspondent says.

The Totalitarian Impulse

Caroline Glick calmly sums up what should be common sense:
That is, leftist writers whose works have been admired by terrorists have not been held accountable for the acts of terrorism conducted by their readers.

Nor should they have been. And to understand why this sort of guilt-by-readership is wrong, it is worth considering what separates liberal democracies from what the great Israeli historian Jacob Talmon referred to as totalitarian democracies. Liberal democracies are founded on the notion that it is not simply acceptable for citizens to participate in debates about the issues facing their societies. It is admirable for citizens in democracies to participate in debates - even heated ones -- about their government's policies as well as their societies' cultural and moral direction. A citizenry unengaged is a citizenry that is in danger of losing its freedom.

One of the reasons that argument and debate are the foundations of a liberal democratic order is because the more engaged citizens feel in the life of their societies, the less likely they will be to reject the rules governing their society and turn to violence to get their way. As a rule, liberal democracies reject the resort to violence as a means of winning an argument. This is why, for liberal democracies, terrorism in all forms is absolutely unacceptable.

Whether or not one agrees with the ideological self-justifications of a terrorist, as a member of a liberal democratic society, one is expected to abhor his act of terrorism. Because by resorting to violence to achieve his aims, the terrorist is acting in a manner that fundamentally undermines the liberal democratic order.

Liberal democracies are always works in progress. Their citizens do not expect for a day to come when the debaters fall silent because everyone agrees with one another as all are convinced of the rightness of one side. This is because liberal democracies are not founded on messianic aspirations to create a perfect society.

In contrast, totalitarian democracies - and totalitarian democrats -- do have a messianic temperament and a utopian mission to create a perfect society. And so its members do have hopes of ending debate and argument once and for all.
Glick reviews the histories of "totalitarian democracies" going back to Rousseau. She exposes the hypocrisy of the left in its excuse-making for jihadi terror and "understanding" of eco-terror. The left's exploitation of Breivik to shut down all discussion of immigration, Islam, and patriotism will undermine the discussion that a liberal order requires:
And it is this tendency that most endangers the future of liberal democracies. If the Left is ever successful in its bid to criminalize ideological opponents and justify acts of terrorism against their opponents, their victory will destroy the liberal democratic foundations of Western civilization.
I'd add to the above that this is what Breivik wants. They are playing right into his hands.

Nidal Hasan still getting paychecks is obscene

The Blaze reports that murderer Malik Nidal Hasan is still getting army paychecks from the government:
Major Nidal Hasan, accused of the 2009 mass shooting rampage at Fort Hood that left 13 dead, has retained his military rank and continues to get paychecks from the government, the base commander said Wednesday.

Lieutenant General Donald Campbell, Jr., the commander of Fort Hood, said Hasan’s confinement and medical expenses are also being paid for by the military, KXXV-TV reported. He receives weekly medical treatment and is occasionally transported to meet with his defense team. [...]

Campbell said the actions are to ensure Hasan gets a fair trial.

“The bottom line is when you cut through everything we are as an army, we have to be fair to him regardless of what we saw or we think we saw or whatever the case may be,” Campbell said. “It’s imperative we maintain the integrity of the court martial so he gets as fair a shot as possible defending himself with his team.”
Campbell's defense is pathetic. He has already been witnessed committing murder, and should definitely be stripped of payment. He committed an abomination and should pay for his own medical costs. This is an outrage.

Ben Bella Breivik

In looking at Breivik's massacre of Norway's next generation of neo-fascists we might think of Breivik acting along the lines of Algerians in the 1950s, though Breivik acted alone and without support of an occupied nation. His reasoning is, in many ways, similar to that of the Algerian resistance. That kind of thinking is not limited to Algeria. It is the "politics of confrontation" that we have read about many times: to create conditions of intolerable repression to force the people to decide an activist position, for or against, and whatever the cause du jour. In Algeria in the 1950s, the cause was anti-colonialism. The cause was no more interesting than any other. It was, essentially, not "a cause" so much as most conflicts between people: it was "because." Breivik got it. He would have killed people no matter what. If anything about this is interesting it is the how, not the why. How did Breivik come to do this?

"The elections of 1948 were faked; so were those of 1951. In such circumstances, the moderates had no effective role to play. The men of violence moved forward." Paul Johnson, Modern Times. (New York: Harper Perennial; p. 496.)

Breivik, according to me, found an opportunity in Norway, and took it. Whether one can rightly claim that Norway's electoral system is corrupt is questionable on its face. The nation has free and fair elections among a brain-washed and cowed population sated with consumerism and nihilist poligion. Norwegians are often enraged about "ideas" such as Israel's existence because too often Norwegians have no personal emotions to actually feel in the real world, requiring sentimentality and false rage to have any feelings at all. But the elections are, more or less, what we have to conclude as free. Soft totalitarianism works just fine for a nation of idiots drunk, on dope, and sated by food and sex. Toss them some meaningful political religion, and life is wonderful. The people vote for more of the same. No force required. Breivik wasn't buying it. He was not that kind of nihilist.

Breivik, as I understand him, was interested in a politics of confrontation. In Algeria, the French provided it to the locals by bombing villages and slaughtering civilians in a rage of their own. It's not just massacres that motivate, though. If the state starts banning those who discuss the same things Breivik discussed, and if the state follows the fascist Left and bans what we think of as free speech, there will be a reaction that is little to do with speech at all. If Breivik's incident causes the Left to repress opposition to its "hate speech" codes, there will be less jaw-jaw, as Churchill puts it.

At the Belmont Club, Wretchard writes in the commnents:

If the line cannot be held here and we go on to ban more “cartoons” and more types of speech the chances are not that more Breivik-like behavior will be prevented but that in the end you will have nothing left but Breivik-like behavior. If we get there then everything runs under those rules, discussions stops and everything reopens again under the management of the Last Man Standing. But if we don’t want to go there, then now’s the time not for suppression, but debate.

Richard Fernadez, Belmont Club. July 26, 2011.

http://pajamasmedia.com/richardfernandez/comment/167889/

So far there is still some openness to discussion, though the Left fascists are seemingly happy to put a stop to as much as they can, if we look to the treatment Robert Spencer, for example, is receiving from them. The French in Algeria missed that intermediate step.

In May 1945 Arabs massacred 103 Europeans in Algeria. The French retaliated: "Dive-bombers blew forty villages to pieces...." (Johnson: p.496.)

The effect in the longer term was the radicalisation of the natives, fairly, in my opinion. But there were Breiviks among them who no doubt would have found some cause to join whether the French ruled Algeria by force or not. Johnson points out that the Algerian resistance wasn't concerned to defeat the French military; the point of the resistance was to divide the people between collaborators and resistance. "The aim was to destroy the concept of assimilation and multi-racialism by eliminating the moderates on both sides." (Ibid. p. 497.)

The effect of terror is to sharpen the divisions: Ben Bella writes, "Liquidate all personalities who want to play the role of interlocuteur valable." (Ibid. p.497.)

Breivik, and again I speculate, shot children to death because he knows that most Norwegian couples have roughly one child. Many of these couples will now be past the age of reproduction. They are finished. They will not be replicated by their diminishing lot of babies. But more, Breivik, I think, determined to demoralise the survivors as well. Who among the survivors, direct or not, will now flock to the neo-fascist flag after knowing the potential result of it? Many might well reconsider a career as a Norwegian government apparatchik. Some might even question the whole parental world view that lead a man to act against it so vividly. Breivik has taken the fun out of being a sanctimonious Norwegian fascist. For some, at least.

"But it was the Muslim men of peace the FLN [Algerian Communists] really hated. In the first two and a half years of war, they murdered only 1,035 Europeans but 6, 352 Arabs (authenticated cases; the real figure was nearer to 20,000.) by this point the moderates could only survive by becoming killers themselves or going into exile." (Ibid. p. 498.)

Breivik is said to have desired a co-operation between such as himself and jihadis. It's sensible in that light: that like the Algerians and the French there will be only two options: French or Algerians. If the Algerians could murder enough Algerians, Algerians would either opt for collaborating with the French or they'd try to save themselves by joining the Algerian resistance. One assumes that Breivik sees himself as the (Modernist) Algerian in struggle with the (Muslim) French. Make French retaliation against the people so severe, and cowardice so fatal, that the people will choose one kind of death over another and hope they might somehow survive. If Breivik could join with the jihadis, he would have his other half the the confrontational dialectic needed to play this game. You can't have a war if no one is willing to fight.

The point, which Breivik seems to have grasped, is to kill the moderates so the survivors will see open conflict as a viable option. Compromisers are dangerous. They have to be, in the understanding of Breivik, the first to die to stir up a war I am sure he sees not only as inevitable but as right and good. He's just one man, now in prison and incommunicado. We won't be finding out much more about his ideas from him for a number of years at best. The question now is whether the fascist Left will play his game and repress any opposition, thereby further radicalising the people against the fascists. Less jaw-jaw, more war-war. We'll have to see how stupid and self-satisfied the Left is. Will they stomp on the opposition? I suspect so. Breivik will have the last laugh.

Andrew Belonsky incites against the right

Following the arrest of Pvt. Naser Abdo, leftist moonbat Andrew Belonsky has wasted no time in stoking hatred against the right, asking if they're going to spread more Islamophobia, which is merely doing all concerned about jihad an honor. From this latest disgusting article of his:
Conservatives may be tempted to use Naser Jason Abdo’s arrest to stoke anti-Muslim sentiment.

An AWOL Muslim soldier named Naser Jason Abdo was arrested today and authorities allege he planned to attack Fort Hood, Texas, where another soldier, Nidal Malik Hasan, killed 13 people and wounded 29 others in a 2009 attack. Will conservatives use Abdo’s arrest to fan Islamophobia?
I suppose that's also what he thinks of the families of the victims of that other monster, Malik Hasan? That is pretty vulgar of him to trivialize the horrors that already took place and what could've happened if the gun store owners and authorities hadn't been on the alert. Why, what Belonsky's asking here could even be directed against the civilians and authorities who were right to be concerned about the dangers Abdo imposed.
According to ABC News, Abdo allegedly told investigators he wanted to “get even” with the U.S. military.
And guess why? Because clearly, he despised that they would kill his fellow Muslims as though they hadn't ever caused any harm.
That same outlet also reports that Abdo first appeared on the national radar last year, when he won conscientious objector status for the United States’ “unjust war” in the Middle East.
Belonsky makes it sound as though he was justified in saying that, and any wars waged against Islamic dictatorships in the mideast are wrong.
Abdo’s apparent plot recalls the terror of Nidal Malik Hasan’s 2009 attack on Fort Hood. Imbalanced and alienated, the Muslim Army psychiatrist opened fire on the base’s cafeteria, killing 13 and wounding 29.

At the time of that shooting, government officials pleaded with the public not to use Hasan’s Muslim background as simple explanation for his action.

“No faith justifies these murderous and craven acts; no just and loving God looks upon them with favor,” said the President during his Fort Hood memorial speech, a clear effort to move the narrative away from Hasan’s heritage and toward a reasonable dialogue.

Former Army Chief of Staff George Casey also warned that knee-jerk reactions would hurt the Army’s diverse ranks: “Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”
So here Belonsky starts quoting Obama in one of his apologia moments, ditto Casey. I'm sorry, but Islam and the Koran do justify those murderous acts, and to overlook that is to bury our heads in the sand. Since when did diversity become more important than our safety? Belonsky then goes on to spew more incitement against conservatives by saying that:
As we get deeper into that latter race, however, we’re seeing an uptick in politically expedient Islamophobia, and it’s entirely conceivable that GOP leaders and their adherents will use Abdo’s Muslim heritage to rally their troops. I mean, just look at Herman Cain, a socially conservative pledge blasting Sharia law and Rep. Peter King’s “Muslim radicalization” hearings.
Notice how in that link, he even laughably says that Rep. King's hearings will "endanger" the GOP's future! As it so happens, even though King's hearings at the time were undercut by PC, they still managed to shed some light on the problems we face from Islamofascism, and even to expose how CAIR has been causing quite a few problems. And does this mean that Belonsky condones sharia too?
But hopefully it won’t come to that and political leaders of all stripes, especially conservatives, will take a measured and rational approach in their reaction to Abdo’s arrest.

Anything less would be a disgrace. In fact, the only topics we should discuss in relation to the Abdo situation would be mental health screening in the Army, which is clearly failing; the rise of potential lone wolf terrorists; or why it took officials over three weeks to find Abdo, who was ultimately turned in by a clerk at a gun shop.
So we shouldn't be discussing the Koran, and whether it incites and teaches violence, nor whether Abdo was influenced by it? One thing that's right however, is that the army is failing - specifically, in terms of recognizing whether a member is dangerous based upon his religion and ethnical background. Belonsky should just shut his yap.

By the way, notice that Belonsky hasn't said anything about Abdo's possession of child porn on his computer? I suppose we shouldn't be discussing sharia's support for that abomination either?

Meet your New Young Turk.....at your own peril?

82 percent have a negative opinion of Christians while only 4 percent have a favorable opinion of Jews.

From Will at The Other News:
Anyone who is curious about the emerging, 21st century Young Turk, the Muslim democrat with whom some non-Muslims think they can promote interfaith dialogue, should carefully read the findings of the most recent World Values Survey, carried out by a team of academics from Bahçesehir University (a survey of randomly selected sample of 1,605 Turks in 54 cities).

The survey proudly presents your new Young Turk: According to the survey, 81 percent of Turks consider themselves as religious, and that’s surely fine. All the same, 61 percent think if women wore bathing suits this would amount to sinning; 44 percent think restaurants should be closed during the fasting month of Ramadan (39 percent in 2007); and 84 percent don’t want gay neighbors.

In the year 2011, 23 percent of Turks think men should be able to marry up to four wives, but not the opposite – against 10 percent in 1996. Interestingly, 60 percent, both male and female, think women should obey men, while 33 percent think women deserve to be beaten by their husbands if they do not obey – compared to 19 percent in 1996.

And, naturally, 70 percent think children may be damaged if mothers work. The political findings of the survey are no less interesting. Seventy-five percent of Turks think the West is at fault for poor relations with Muslim nations.

And 53 percent blame the U.S. and West for poverty in Muslim countries.

Unsurprisingly, 82 percent have a negative opinion of Christians while only 4 percent have a favorable opinion of Jews.

Forty-five percent and 41 percent think that the most violent religions are Christianity and Judaism, respectively. And only 9 percent of Turks believe Arab groups carried out the attacks on 9/11.

The Europeans should decide on the wisdom of allying with a country where 82 percent of the population has a negative opinion of Christians, or on how sensible it is to play-act the interfaith dialogue theater that does not even convince secondary-school children.

All the same, linearly projecting the pace of Turkish conservatism into the next couple of decades, the Europeans may not be lucky enough to avoid the “vicinity cost” of 100 million or so of post-modern Young Turkey, where 90 plus percent of the population favors a strictly dogmatic interpretation of basic Islamic teachings and feel religiously and ethnically hostile to their non-Muslims neighbors to their west.

Obama's 'example' Turkey.

Doobie Brothers
Far From Home


I wish you could have stayed a little longer cause it seems like only yesterday
You've gotten so much stronger now I know you're on your way
We've waited for this moment now it's hard to let you go
Cause baby when you're gone away I know I'm gonna miss you so

Spread your wings and fly away
When the rain begins to fall
Just remember that you'll never be that far from home

I looked in your room today I saw an old and worn out shoe
It's one from your favorite pair. I remember when they were new
You used to wear them everywhere when you used to hold my hand
Time slips through your fingers just like a tiny little grain of sand

Baby just spread your wings and fly away
When the rain begins to fall
Just remember that you'll never be that far from home

Just remember that you'll never be that far from home
Just remember that you'll never be that far from home
Just remember that you'll never be that far from home

Spread your wings and fly away
Spread your wings and fly away
Spread your wings and fly away

Enemies Within

My dander is seriously flying today!

A bit of background before today's news (not news to me though):



ABC News
Aug 31, 2010
An Muslim soldier trying to avoid deployment to Afghanistan said his year in the Army has shown him that "no Muslim should serve in the U.S. military."

Pfc. Naser Abdo, 20, has filed for conscientious objector status, which would allow him to leave the Army without consequence, on the belief that his Muslim faith and one-time desire to serve his country can't be reconciled.

"A Muslim is not allowed to participate in an Islamicly unjust war," the Texan told ABCNews.com. "Any Muslim who knows his religion or maybe takes into account what his religion says can find out very clearly why he should not participate in the U.S. military."

I absolutely, 100% agree with him. NO MUSLIMS IN THE UNITED STATES MILITARY! They CANNOT BE TRUSTED!! Why are our enemies allowed weapons and allowed to bunk with our American soldiers? This is not the first example of a muslim "going back to his religion" and deciding to take out the enemy (US).

Fuck the PC. We need some WWII attitude happening here or else we might as well just say goodbye.

Yes, Japanese Americans were allowed to fight during WWII. But they were seriously vetted and fought under tight and controlled circumstances.

Right now, we have muslims spread out everywhere. Who knows when or where they will become a turncoat.




Army alert: AWOL Muslim soldier admits he planned an attack on Fort Hood, site of 2009 rampage.

By Associated Press

3:18 p.m. EDT, July 28, 2011

KILLEEN, Texas (AP) — An alert issued by the Army says an AWOL Muslim soldier who had weapons stashed in a motel room near Fort Hood has admitted planning an attack on the Texas post.

The email alert sent to all Army units Thursday and obtained by The Associated Press says the man arrested by Killeen police a day earlier had a large quantity of ammunition, weapons and a bomb inside a backpack.

It says he admitted under questioning to planning an attack on Fort Hood.

The FBI plans to charge Pfc. Naser Abdo (AB'-doh) with possessing bomb-making materials after gunpowder and other items were found in his nearby Killeen motel room.

Fort Hood is the same post where 13 died in 2009 in the worst mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation.

I feel sick.

New Poll: ‘Trouble for the West’ as Egyptians On Pace to Elect Muslim Brotherhood
Posted on July 28, 2011 at 7:32am by Jonathon M. Seidl

Remember Amr Moussa? He’s the Egyptian presidential candidate — who is also a part of the Muslim Brotherhood — who said in May that Hamas — the terror group — is not a terror group. Now, a new Newsweek/Daily Beast poll finds that he‘s the likely winner in Egypt’s upcoming election, and his party is likely to gain power. And according to Newsweek, that’s bad news for Israel and America.

“The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s largest Islamist group, is poised to win the largest share of the vote in parliamentary elections,” the Daily Beast writes, “the man who appears to have a clear shot at the presidency, Amr Moussa, has made his name criticizing Israel; and a large majority of respondents favor amending or revoking the cornerstone of regional stability, the Camp David Accords.”

According to the poll of just over 1,000 respondents, the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Freedom and Justice Party” garnered the most support at 17 percent. The same support ringed true for Moussa:

On paper, the Newsweek/Daily Beast survey found a close race: Former Arab League chief Amr Moussa leads the pack with the support of 16 percent of likely voters, former diplomat Mohamed ElBaradei and former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafik follow with 12 percent each, and a smattering of others trail in single digits. But Moussa clearly has wider appeal: When we surveyed likely voters with just the three front-runners, the former foreign minister, who talks tough on Israel, garners 47 percent, with “Undecided” running even with the remaining two. [Emphasis added]

So what did these Egyptians think about Israel? The poll says most want to change the staple peace agreement in the region, the Camp David Accords:

The antipathy to their neighbor the north was palpable. Only 3 percent of those surveyed had a positive impression of Israel, only 2 percent said Israel cares about Egypt’s interests and a mere 1 percent said Israel had responded to the recent revolution in a positive way. This has repercussions on the linchpin of regional stability, the Camp David Accords: 70 percent want to amend or cancel them, while only 17 percent want to keep them as is. [Emphasis added]

Who do they like instead? How about Turkey, which has embraced Islamic law.

“Among regional powers, it was viewed as having demonstrated the most support for the revolution, as well as the most concern about Egypt’s interests and the most positive effect on the world,” the article says.

It‘s no wonder that the Daily Beast opens it’s piece with this conclusion: “the political climate in Egypt is moving in a new direction that is inimical to American and allied interests—notwithstanding the billions of dollars in aid that the United States continues to provide.”

That, it says plainly, spells “trouble for the West.”

Good Stuff: Military Mothers Stand Up For The 'Stache

Gateway Pundit:

Band of Military Mothers Rescues John Bolton From Code Pink Attack (Video)
Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, July 28, 2011, 6:03 AM

The communists from Code Pink were back at it this week after returning from their failed Gaza Flotilla adventure. On Tuesday the hardcore leftists harassed Ambassador John Bolton outside the Congressional Building.
That’s when a band of military mothers came to his rescue.



CODEPINK’s Medea Benjamin and Tighe Barry run into war criminal John Bolton outside of a Congressional building on July 26, 2011.
Hat Tip Founding Bloggers

Katie O. sent this on the failed attack.

FYI: Bev Perlson, founder of Band of Mothers, and Debbie Lee, a Gold Star mother, surrounded Ambassador Bolton with military support signs and protected him from the Code Pink attack. Then they got Code Pink kicked off the corner which is why the video shows the Pinkos walking away. They didn’t have a permit. Blue Star and Gold Star moms protected Bolton from the vile leftists.

Here’s a photo from the Band of Mothers from their protest:

Hat Tip Katie

And here’s more on the confrontation:

The Band of Mothers Beverly Perlson along with Gold Star Mother Debbie Lee, members of the Gathering of Eagles and FreeRepublic stood in support of our military outside the Cannon Building as they do throughout the year.

Early in the afternoon of Tuesday July 26th, Suzi “Medea” Benjamin, co-founder of the anti-war group Code pink, stopped by to talk to the patriots on the corner of the Canon House building in Washington DC to spout her usual anti-American and anti-military propaganda. She left and then returned with a few buddies just as Amb. Bolton was leaving the area.

The pinkos then morphed into their typical selves and began shouting and harassing the Amb calling him a war criminal and demanding that he be arrested (umm….editorial note… since when does a UN Amb have the power to declare or vote for war? How is he a war criminal???)

Upon witnessing this harrassment, the patriotic citizens supporting the troops surrounded Amb Bolton to shield him from Code Pink.

While continuing their shrill angry behavior, Code Pink’s claim of peace and harmony was once again displayed as a joke when one of the Code Pink members came too close to Gold Star Mother Debbie Lee and pushed her. At that point, the capitol police stepped in and pushed code pink away from Amb Bolton and the patriots. Code Pink was ordered to leave the area as they had no permit to protest at that location.

Amb Bolton seemed amused by the pathetic antics and tactics of Code Pink and thanked the patriots on the corner for their support and protection before stepping into his car.

Well done, fellow patriots!
