I don’t think there’s a lot of people anymore who don’t consider the Grand Banana Republic to be one sick mass of cat feces. Take the latest hilarious headline story:
ATF senior agent assigned to the Phoenix office in 2010, Dodson’s job is to stop gun trafficking across the border. Instead, he says he was ordered to sit by and watch it happen. Investigators call the tactic letting guns “walk.” In this case, walking into the hands of criminals who would use them in Mexico and the United States…[now here's the really funny part]… Surveillance video obtained by CBS News shows suspected drug cartel suppliers carrying boxes of weapons to their cars at a Phoenix gun shop. The long boxes shown in the video being loaded in were AK-47-type assault rifles. So it turns out ATF not only allowed it – they videotaped it.

There is a bulletin published here (Political Islam) about women living under Islamic threat; it covers stories from not only Muslim countries where you expect horror stories but in the West too, including the Grand Banana Republic. The bulletin covers the period from Aug 12 to Nov 2.

A lot of Afghan women, like the beautiful actress above, are trying to break out of their religious prison but their shariaist society makes it extremely difficult (like this unfortunate actress). After all, this is just a small part of the mindset they’re living under:
“Allah permits you to shut them (women) in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves.
“If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; if they testify, confine them to houses until death [by starvation] claims them.”
“The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’”
“In hell I saw women hanging by their breasts. They had fathered bastards.”
“And for those who launch a charge against their wives, accusing them, but have no witnesses or evidence, except themselves; let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies, (swearing four times) by Allah that he is the one speaking the truth.”
These quotes were collected from here (Bare Naked Islam). Now of course you can find very similar things in the Old Testament, the difference being that even Orthodox Jews of the Torah and Christians today have long since moved on from acting on such monstrous beliefs. More quotes here.
Outside the Wellington Way polling station in Tower Hamlets yesterday, as at many other polling stations in the borough, people had to run a gauntlet of Lutfur Rahman supporters to reach the ballot box. As one Bengali woman voter went past them, we heard one of the Rahman army scolding her for her “immodest dress.” That incident is perhaps a tiny taste of the future for Britain’s poorest borough now it has elected Mr Rahman as its first executive mayor, with almost total power over its £1 billion budget. At the count last night, one very senior figure in the Tower Hamlets Labour Party said: “It really is Britain’s Islamic republic now.” Read rest of this article here (London Telegraph).
Uhhhhhh, Juan Williams said a politically incorrect thing…uhhhhhhhhhhh….“I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I’ve got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.” (Here) Yeah, Williams, who works for NPR, said this on the O’Reilly Factor so the Stalinistas at NPR fired him. I’m sure glad I don’t work for NPR. Williams might get nervous on a flight but I won’t even fly anymore.
BTW: try to keep in mind that Islam is not a race of people. It is a religion based on both Old Testament Judaism and even some New Testament writings); it is also a political movement based on sharia law (which clearly proscribes death for homosexuals and subjugation of women).
Ayaan Hirsi Ali–I’d vote for this woman for a Senate seat (or any other seat) in an instant. After escaping an arranged marriage in Somali or Kenya via Canada, she landed in the Netherlands as a refugee seeking political asylum. She eventually became an outspoken member of the Dutch Parliament (she is not a prisoner to political correctness parameters), but was forced to flee to the the Grand Banana Republic because of Islamic threats (yes, even the GBR offers more security). She has written two books, Infidel (I’ve read it twice) and Nomad (I’m reading it now). She speaks several languages, including masterful English, and has, along with people like Christopher Hitchens, for example, elevated the religion/atheism debate onto a substantial intellectual plane, accessible even to many leftists. Wait a minute, I’ve had second thoughts about her being in the Senate. I mean she’s eloquent, soft-spoken, gorgeous, humorous, sexy, intellectual, multi-lingual, politically incorrect–she wouldn’t fit in. Nope, not in that clubhouse of buffoons. Here’s a recent article about her (The Guardian). Here she is on a very funny bantering segment of the Colbert Report.

We then headed toward the main prayer hall while several men followed close behind, muttering angrily in Arabic. As soon as we entered the prayer hall, they confronted us.
“Are you Muslim?” one of them demanded to know.
“No,” I replied. “But we were invited to come here by Imam Namous.” This did not impress any of them, even though I could see Imam Namous on the other side of the room talking to a group of children.
The man then glowered at us behind a set of almost lifeless eyes. “You have to leave,” he shouted at us, “Now!” and he thrust a clenched fist into his palm.

Finnish environmentalist philosopher Pentti Linkolahas (his website) calls for “fascism as a necessary step to save the planet from ecological destruction, demanding that climate change deniers be ‘re-educated’ in eco-gulags and that the vast majority of humans be killed with the rest enslaved and controlled by a green police state, with people forcibly sterilized, cars confiscated and travel restricted to members of the elite.” Here (Prison Planet).

For the category of worst mass killer in history the winner is…Mr Mao Tse Tung (aka, the Chairman), a man greatly admired by such prestigious media organs as The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Tenets of Islamic (sharia) law, which the imam behind the ground zero mosque says is compliant with the U.S. Constitution: a short selection, compiled by former muslim Nonie Darwish, from the “clear cut laws in Islam decided by great Imams after years of examination and interpretation of the Quran, Hadith and Mohammed’s life.”
1- Jihad defined as “to war against non-Muslims to establish the religion” is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph). Muslim Caliphs who refuse jihad are in violation of Sharia and unfit to rule.
3- A Caliph is exempt from being charged with serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking and in some cases of rape.
8- A Muslim who leaves Islam must be killed immediately.
19- Homosexuality is punishable by death.
22- Divorce is only in the hands of the husband and is as easy as saying: “I divorce you” and becomes effective even if the husband did not intend it.
30- To prove rape, a woman must have 4 male witnesses.
……it goes on but I think you get the idea; so just how compliant is sharia with the constitution?
