As social justice becomes the new meaning for church among radical progressivesACORN’s own Bertha Lewisseems to have found a home with Rev. Billy Talen and his anti-capitalist, revolutionary, Earth worshipping Church of Earthalujah. Many of us were treated to the video of her now infamous “Walmart sucks” performance at the church, but are left wondering what kind of church sings anti-capitalism hymns at their services? Is this what church is all about now for the progressive movement?

Leave it to Ron Paul to make Obama look like a hawk.

Ron Paul’s irrational foreign policy should bury his candidacy in a post- 9/11 world, yet he’s still popular among many Americans who are sick of our government’s intrusion into the private sector economy and who see his domestic policies as the answers to our troubles, but some even question his soundness in that arena. (the Paul section begins at 4:30 in the video) His constant refrain about the jihadist war being waged on us is, “They’re here because we’re over there.” This tells me that to Ron Paul, no matter what the enemy does to us, including nuking us, we had it coming. We are always to blame according to Ron Paul, and that’s why he can’t even see the killing of Osama bin Laden as a good thing. Besides everything else that this says about him, it’s his absolute indifference to the victims of jihad that condemns him for me. Here’s a very good post on Ron Paul.

al-Tirmidhi, Sunan 1:152 – [Muhammad said] “Whoever is found conducting himself in the manner of the people of Lot [homosexuals], kill the doer and the receiver.

For all the screaming about intolerance and bigotry against gays here in America — driven by many people’s objection to changing the definition of the centuries-old institution of marriage — many so-called liberals don’t seem to notice the actual intolerance and murder being meted out on gays in Muslim countries. Homosexuals living in Muslim countries suffer dire consequences for coming out including whipping, banishment, humiliation and even death by stoning, hanging or familial stabbing in accordance with Islamic law. Homosexuals in the Muslim culture are encouraged to commit suicide rather than bring shame on their families.

While the biggest argument regarding homosexuals in America today revolves around which political party gets to invite them to gala events, gays in the Muslim world are fighting for their very lives. Instead of rallying against the Islamization of the West and the homophobia that comes with it, the Left spends its time identifying conservative “hate groups,” none of which include Muslims who hate homosexuals.

There is always the possibility that American gay rights activists haven’t heard of the many atrocities perpetrated on homosexuals by Islam due to the deafening silence of the old media on anything that can be construed as criticism of the ‘religion of peace.’ I aim to change that. The following are ten reasons gays need to join the fight to beat back the growing Islamofascist threat.


10. Bangladesh refugees

Many gays living in Muslim countries have tried to claim refugee status in free nations with tolerant attitudes toward homosexuality. Unfortunately, more often than not, they are denied and told to act less gay to avoid problems in their home countries. An unidentified gay couple from Bangladesh who had been stoned, whipped and threatened with death if caught, tried to seek refugee protections in Australia but were turned down.

When the review tribunal rejected their application for refugee status last year, it said the couple had “lived together for over four years without experiencing any more than minor problems … they clearly conducted themselves in a discreet manner, and there is no reason to suppose that they would not continue to do so if they returned home now.”

Minor problems? I’ve heard Australians are tough, but how much more than stoning, whipping and fatwas on your head do you have to go through before they call it a major problem? For whatever reason, the government of Australia doesn’t have much sympathy for gays in the Islamic world. The question is, will they have any sympathy for Australian gays when the Islamists come for them?

It is easier to believe a lie that one has heard a thousand times than to believe a fact that no one has heard before.

Revelations that rock the status quo are hard to take.  And sometimes people rather lie about the messenger than listen to truth. People didn’t want to hear the earth wasn’t flat, cigarettes weren’t healthy, or pro-wrestling was fake. I still don’t believe the last one! People don’t want to be challenged. And those who challenge are often gagged. That was true this week when the University of California Santa Barbara student council had to vote on allowing David Horowitz to speak on their campus.

Noam Chomsky doesn’t like corporations, but the only one He doesn’t seem interested in exposing is al Qaeda. Since its inception, al Qaeda and its recently expired figurehead, Osama bin Laden, have essentially operated as a multinational importer-exporter of murder, fear, hatred, nihilism, and racism. They’ve had a hand in some of the most significant acts of degradation since the end of the Cold War, and have done so via a byzantine financial network of front companies, false charities, and squandered inheritance (see, for instance, the fine research of Rohan Gunaratna on this). But to read Chomsky these days, one is forced to overlook all this capitalist malfeasance and conclude the following:

1. There was little or no evidence that Osama bin Laden was involved in 9/11 when we first invaded Afghanistan; moreover, there’s still little or no evidence.

2. Morally, George W. Bush is worse than Osama bin Laden (or, presumably, whoever was actually responsible for 9/11).

3. Since we killed Osama bin Laden, we must admit that it would be OK for someone to kill Bush or President Obama.

4. The United States is racist and imperialist.

These are the main points of Chomsky’s Official Reaction to the recent raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan, which took out bin Laden. It wasn’t enough for Chomsky to criticize the U.S. for not giving him a “fair trial.” No, to lodge that complaint only would be to consent to the moral parameters of the argument as put forward by Washington—that bin Laden was responsible for 9/11 and deserved some form of retribution. The extremist impulse to destroy and rebuild another world is evident in the way Chomsky wants the entire perspective redefined. Whereas before He might have been content to criticize bin Laden as the product of American foreign policy, now He apparently feels even doing that might be an indulgence of the imperialist narrative.
