Berkeley Sets Liberal Benchmark

December 16, 2014

Recently, Filmmaker Ami Horowitz went to the University of California’s Berkeley campus to conduct an experiment. Waving an ISIS flag, making remarks favorable to ISIS, and blaming America for world terrorism, Ami was ignored or encouraged, but never challenged by passing students.

When he later switched to waving an Israeli flag and denouncing Hamas, he was continually challenged, cursed at, and vilified. Students’ hatred and demeaning of Israel was vehemently pronounced while sympathy for Hamas seemed unanimous. Terrorist organizations such as ISIS and Hamas are unabashedly supported by Berkeley and academia in general.

Berkeley, California, of course, is a leader in “progressiveness” proudly forcing marijuana dispensaries to provide free medicinal marijuana to low-income customers, enacting a tax on soda, and putting warning labels on gas pumps. While the Berkeley campus prides itself on free speech, it hypocritically has no problem banning a speech by liberal Bill Maher solely due to his view on Muslims.

Ironically, Berkeley encourages students to embrace everything liberal while refusing to follow a local ordinance raising the minimum wage. Students speak out loudly and protest often concerning political issues, but very few students (14%) bothered to vote in the mid-term elections even though there were measures on the ballot affecting student life.

Berkeley’s liberalism has “progressed” to the point where victimizing criminals, as long as they are minorities, and bashing the USA are automatic reactions. Criminals or murderers who hate the USA, such as ISIS and Hamas, are ‘twofers’ and held in even higher esteem. Berkeley isn’t the only school actively indoctrinating students to sympathize with criminals and bash the USA, but it does set the benchmark for the liberal agenda at colleges and universities across the nation.

Schools in many Arab countries are encouraging students to hate Israel and the USA and adopt terrorism as a way of life. Schools in this country are encouraging students to hate the USA and rally with criminals against the evil American “system”. What kind of future does that predict for this country? With Berkeley leading the way, can there even be a future for this country?

Where Are the Riots?

August 21, 2014

Where are the riots? Where is the outcry for justice? Where is the demand for action? Where are the protests? Where is our leadership?

ISIS, a savage terrorist group, beheaded an American citizen, James Foley, who was captured and held in captivity for two years. ISIS proudly put a video of the decapitation on YouTube for the world to see, stating that the murder was in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes against them in Iraq. Previously, they demanded a ransom for Foley’s release but that was refused by the U.S. They are now threatening to kill three other captured U.S. citizens.

Capturing and murdering American citizens is an act of war and an unambiguous and brazen declaration of war against the U.S. It is not a “crime” to be investigated by Holder’s Justice Department. Have we become so politically correct and impotent that we will hide behind an “investigation” rather than act firmly and immediately? Are we “transformed” to the point of allowing our citizens to be brutally murdered with impunity?

European countries have been paying ransoms to terrorists for captured citizens because they lack the military means and fortitude to do anything else. They have decimated their militaries by diverting defense spending to government assistance programs. Obviously, these ransoms have not deterred terrorism; they have just emboldened the terrorists and proven the weakness of those paying the ransom.

President Obama prematurely removed all of our troops from Iraq. It was a mistake and the rise and growth of ISIS is the result. This is not a small band of rag-tag terrorists. It is an army viciously taking over an entire country and openly declaring war on the U.S. Our foolishly open southern border, another Obama mistake, will not be ignored by these terrorists who are intent on killing Americans on American soil.

Will Obama show leadership, admit mistakes, and take firm and proper action? Will citizens rise up in protest and march in the streets (ala Ferguson) if he doesn’t? To quote vice president Biden, “This is big f**king deal”, and the answers will determine our future.

Who Will Win?

August 10, 2014

The battle between good and evil never ends and it is always hard to predict the winner of any single clash. However, the current trend of politically indoctrinating children does not bode well for the success of good.

In the Middle East, children are being taught to hate Jews and continue jihad against the Western World. They are being inundated with lies and distortions that condition them to a future life of violence and hate. Children will learn whatever they are taught and they are being taught to kill and die for jihad. There is no hope for peace when generations continue this senselessness violence.

In North Korea, the same type of indoctrination takes place and children are brainwashed into believing all they are told about the outside world. The total control North Korea has over communications keeps people in the dark, often literally, and children are taught to fear and hate everything outside the country. It is hard to break that cycle when it is government controlled.

Here in the United States, our children are also being indoctrinated. Our schools are dominated and controlled by progressive liberals who believe social justice is more important than basic education. Our children are being inundated with the ideology of moral equivalence that scorns judgment of other cultures, even those based on violence. With the line between good and evil erased, our children will not even know they are in a battle when they reach adulthood. How, then, can they win?

Currently, the trend in schools is to teach history based on this moral equivalence, ignoring our country’s incredible contributions to the world and concentrating on our mistakes and “atrocities”. This is a deliberate attempt to reduce the standing of the US as the leader of the free world and to level the international playing field. Our children are being conditioned to actively pursue this, so who will stand against those being taught to kill and dominate?

Much of the free world has become dependent on US leadership and military strength. Our current administration has backed away from this responsibility and world chaos is increasing as a result. If our children continue to be taught moral equivalence while other children are taught the “righteousness” of their violence and killing, who do you think has a better chance of winning the battle between good and evil?

Your vote counts and it is the only way to secure the future for our children. Social justice will be meaningless if evil triumphs.

Preposterous

July 28, 2014

Conservative (though often independent) columnist George Will stunned many when he told Fox News host Chris Wallace: “The idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous”, adding that the US should handle the problem because it is capable of doing so.

This is indicative of how difficult and emotional the border situation has become and how successful it is to use children for political purposes. It is becoming more and more apparent that Obama is using this influx of children to force his dream of amnesty. This use of children may be less dangerous than Hamas’ use of children as shields, but it is the same basic and disgusting principle.

While George Will is correct in saying the US can handle the estimated 60,000 children that have already crossed the border, the truly “preposterous” thing is that until the border is secured, that number will just increase to the point where the US can’t handle it. There has already been a 117% increase in children crossing in the past year.

It is also “preposterous” that Obama has no intention of securing the border and is now preparing to issue an executive order granting the amnesty he cannot get Congress to approve. Just the reporting of this possibility is sure to entice more to cross illegally. Whether this comes from blind adherence to an agenda or pure political manipulation, the flood at the border will increase as a result.

Seeing those children at the border tugs at everyone’s heart strings, not just George Will’s, but there are more than “8-year-olds” crossing the border. There are cartel members, gang members, and possible international terrorists taking advantage of Obama’s immigration folly. While border agents focus on taking care of children, the border is an open door to all, and that is incredibly dangerous.

Emotions need to be put aside and the border needs to be properly secured before this can be dealt with properly. It is truly “preposterous” that Obama chooses to ignore the consequences of his actions. George Will knows this, but emotions got the better of him.

Pathetic Hamas

July 24, 2014

Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and it will not allow peace to occur until that goal is reached. With misguided sympathy from the media, Hamas continues to pretend to be something other than a blood-thirsty terrorist organization, but it is not.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu says: “We (Hamas) aren’t leading our people to destruction. We are leading them to death”. What kind of a sick statement is that? Hamas wants death, death, and more death, even if it’s their own people. That’s why they rejected a recent Israeli-accepted ceasefire. Peace is not an Hamas option.

The recent and short-lived suspension of international flights to and from Israel caused by Hamas rockets elicited this boast from Sami Abu: “The success of Hamas in closing Israeli airspace is a great victory for the resistance, and is the crown of Israel’s failure“.

How does protecting innocent travelers from Hamas’ random rocket attacks become an Israeli failure? What resistance is Hamas talking about – its own resistance to peace? How great a victory is it to accidentally hit the airport after firing hundreds of rockets into Israel indiscriminately? It is all just so terribly pathetic. Still, there are those willing to back Hamas terror as long as it is Israel on the receiving end.

Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in Europe railing against Israel’s defensive campaign to stop Hamas attacks coming from Gaza. Hamas is using a hospital as headquarters and has encouraged civilians to ignore Israeli warnings of attacks, no doubt hoping to use civilian deaths for propaganda purposes. Protestors don’t mind as long as Israel is portrayed as the bad guy.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrations are largest in France where open immigration policies have resulted in the largest Muslim populations in Europe. Political correctness dictates the media not describe who most of these protestors are, but one can easily guess. Pretense is just a sham and it, too, is pathetic.
