The Layers Of Islam

Posted in Politics, Religion on October 20th, 2014

Th Gods forfend that you should ever speak out against Islam and its Muslims. You will be instantly branded as an ignorant, intolerant, bigoted Islamaphobe and reminded stridently and harshly that no all Muslims are Jihadis and/or terrorists.

Islam’s apologists are actually correct in their claims that the majority of Muslim are not violent jihadis and/or terrorists. While the vast and overwhelming majority of terrorism and theocratic violence in modern world is carried out by Muslims, the majority of Muslims are not taking part in carrying it out. Islam and its Muslims are not monolithic; they have layers.

The Layers of Islam, Muslims, and Evil
The Layers Of Islam and Muslims

Islam and its Muslims are not monolithic; they have layers as does any sect or ideology. Indeed, Muslims run the gambit from violent extremists to largely uninvolved, quasi-secular individuals.

Violent Jihadis

At the core of the problem that is Islam is its innermost circle of Muslims. These are the small but powerful minority of violent jihadis such as the Taliban, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and other groups, and the “lone wolves” that are to be found on every single continent except Antarctica.

Political Islamists

The next and significantly larger circle of Islam is the political Islamists who forsake taking direct, violent actions themselves in favor of suborning the political and legal processes the advance the cause of Islam. The OIC, CAIR, and MPAC are example of such groups that use lawfare and paper terrorism to attack others in the name of Islam instead of guns and bombs.

Abominable Adherents

Then there is the circle of Islam in which the Muslims don’t care enough about the political aspects of Islam to lend material and comfort to either of the two inner circles, but who practice many activities and espouse many ideas that are generally found reprehensible and atavistic by the peoples of the Civilized World.

The Assimilated Fringe

And, lastly, on the periphery of Islam, we have the largely uninvolved and, at least, functionally assimilated fringe elements of Muslims. In many ways they are essentially equatable to the “fallen away” or “Sundays and Holidays” Christians. They’re not such “moderate Muslims” as Muslims who are moderate-to-lackadaisical in their religious practices and views.

It the duty of all right-thinking men and women of the Civilized World reject the binary argument of the Muslims and their enablers and apologists that that are merely the rare jihadis and terrorist and the “good” Muslims. It is also our duty to reject and condemn those who make such arguments.

It is true that not all Muslims need to be dealt with using high levels of armed force. That doesn’t by any means, however, that most of them do not need to be dealt with in some manner.

Racism Is Beautiful

Posted in Humor, Religion, Society on October 14th, 2014

It’s a fact that we’re constantly bombarded by the message that racism is ugly. Well, the truth is that racism is or, at least, can be beautiful.

Zienna Eve
Racism Is Beautiful

I know! Too many of you this doesn’t make any sense. I understand that and shall endeavor explain it.

  • Being White is being racist. All Whites are racists, whether or not they know it or espouse it;
  • There’s nothing Whiter and, hence, more racist than a blue-eyed blonde, especially a Dane like the beautiful Zienna Eve;
  • Ms. Eve is wearing quite “abbreviated” designer, pseudo-military clothing. That’s an example of White Privilege. Hence, it’s racist;
  • She’s carrying an “assault weapon” and “assault weapons” are inherently White, thus equally inherently racist;
  • Her pendant is a Heathen holy symbol, Mj√∂lnir, and, as all Neo-Pagans know, those Heathens are racist, White Power pagans.

So, do you see now? This is racist and is quite beautiful. Therefore, racism is beautiful.

</sarcasm> :-P

A Question of Offense
A Question Of Offense

This is a very basic and very valid question. Perhaps that is why no Liberal or Progressive will ever truly answer it if asked by an American.
