That None May Dare Call It By Name…

12 Mar

Thankfully, not everyone in government is practicing the ostrich manuever and ignoring the creeping threat that is sharia law.

I can understand the attraction for liberals.  Much like progressivism, sharia cloaks itself in the garb of a reasonable request, and moves along by inches.  It is like the object you see out of the corner of your eye that you swear just moved toward you, but when you turn your full attention on it, it seems to not be moving at all.  Only when you practically meditate on it, spending time between the passing seconds, that you actually realize that it is indeed moving, and that it is a threat.

And Progressivism, hating what America was established to be as much as an other enemies of our freedoms, sees a ready ally for today, and an opportunity to tar its opponents as the real extremists with nary a thought given to threat that sharia poses to them, and the choices that they themselves have embraced.  Thankfully, not everyone in politics has chosen to be blind to this threat, or cowed by the oft-brandished club of political correctness used to silence those who would speak frankly about the threat to the American public.  Case in point?  Rick Santorum:

“Jihadism is evil and we need to say what it is,” he said at the Strafford County Lincoln-Reagan dinner, remarks that show how the former Pennsylvania senator continues to establish himself as the candidate most-aligned with the Republican Party’s conservative base.

“We need to define it and say what it is. And it is evil. Sharia law is incompatible with American jurisprudence and our Constitution.”

Santorum added, “Sharia law is not just a religious code. It is also a governmental code. It happens to be both religious in nature an origin, but it is a civil code. And it is incompatible with the civil code of the United States.”

But this extraordinary moment of clarity was not reserved for new threats to our liberty.  He had a few words for those who have been exchanging freedom for dependency, and calling it something else for decades now:

Santorum said the Democrats talk about entitlements the way dealers talk about drugs.

“Close your eyes, like you’re listening to a drug dealer outside a schoolyard,” he said. “They see entitlements as a way to make you dependent, weaker, less of a person than you are, drugging you into submission to a government who promises a high to take care of you.”

This man isn’t just bucking the trend in American politics, he’s daring the lightning to hit him.  If he keeps recklessly saying true things, he just might rouse a few people from their slumber.

    Great post, BiW! God willing, more people will be willing to stand up to those who are blind to the evil that is Sharia Law. Unfortunately, we have at least one person currently sitting on the highest court in the land who has no problem with Sharia law, despite the fact that she would be one of the first people eliminated were it to take hold here (she has TWO strikes against her, if what I’ve heard about her lifestyle is true).

    I still can’t believe that Bob Casey beat Rick Santorum. Of course, Philadelphia had more votes for Casey than there were registered voters in the county. . .

    From TS&D:

    The biggest obstacle we have to fighting the creeping of Shari’a is the ignorance over its political ideology. It is political power disguised as a so-called moral religion.

    Santorum has nothing to lose by coming out of the Establishment closet. And by doing so, he is prickling the hairs on the back of old GOPers, and poking sticks into their soft bellies. Let’s hope they bleed 😉

    Hey, Chief. You ever do any of these ‘relief supplies’ runs?

    Dick – No. I concentrated on beating back the Commie hordes.

    So the end run that they’ve pulled must be really frustrating, huh?

    When looking at possible properties for Kelly and I. A few questions have to be asked such as, “Will any neighbors be annoyed at me for taking a leak in the front yard in broad daylight, or will firing a high powered rifle bother anybody? What about fully automatic weapons fire and explosive use?”

  23. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere March 12, 2011 at 5:24 pm #

    Chief, I think you have confused me with some other lawn-stomping whippersnapper.

    I don’t have much use for the lazy, whining S.O.B.s who think that “fairness” is about making it off of the sweat of my labor, rather than having the opportunity to make it off of their own.

    I’d just as soon have them move to the places that have claimed to make it work and leave my country, my economy, and my government alone.

  24. MCPO Airdale March 12, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

    BiW- You have no idea how much the current political situation makes me want to build a tactical nuke in my garage. Just kidding. . . I think. Yeah, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t do that, IYKWIMAITYD.

    “All are subject by nature to equal laws of morality, and in society have a right to equal laws for their government, yet no two men are perfectly equal in person, property, understanding, activity, and virtue, or ever can be made so by any power less than that which created them” –John Adams, Discourse on Davila—XV, 1776

  26. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX March 12, 2011 at 5:59 pm #

    Mr. TiFW is outside rearranging all of the hardscaping I did over the past 6 or 7 years. I’m gonna hafta go outside at some point and lend some moral support…..

    Oh, and I harvested 4 stalks of asparagus yesterday. Between the hardscaping massacre and global warming, not many plants survived from last year….

  27. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere March 12, 2011 at 7:16 pm #

    TiFW, I was just reading about how horrified Jefferson was at Adams’ Discourses on Davila.

    This book has a chapter that mentions it:

    You’re among friends here, Dick – we all know what a softie you are….

    Mr. TiFW is getting “Mustang Fever” – he’s looking online at prices and car loan rates.
    I told him the rates are practically unbeatable (<4%), he's got at least 10% for a down payment, and it's a buyer's market….

  46. Dick March 12, 2011 at 11:02 pm #

    Let me know when he’s ready to buy Teresa. I’ll send him to the best sales guy and dealer.
    Plus, I’ll hook him up with real cost and what he should expect.

    It is just a shame that so many on the left who profess true environmental concern remain so silent about Iran’s construction of nuclear power stations. Iran, after all, is one giant earthquake zone.

    I think that the gentlemen here will agree that this cannot stand:

    The Council of Islamic Ideology in Pakistan has protested the use of padded and colourful bras by Muslim women, and recommended that Pakistani Muslim researchers should try to invent an innerwear that makes female assets unnoticeable.

    The council held a meeting late February in light of the protests held last month by the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) and other religious parties against the increasing import and eventual use of padded and colourful bras, Roznama Jawani reports.

    The council also invited shop owners who were in the business of importing and selling female underwear, advising them to bring lingerie samples, so that the council could see about what the protesters were angry.

    After the meeting was over, the council released a recommendation to the media that said: “Padded bras are Devil’s cushions and he likes to rest of them. The Council of Islamic Ideology is recommending that Pakistani Muslim researchers should try to invent a bra that makes the female chest area unnoticeable.

    Nice.
    I just finished filling out the FAFSA for the 2 girls who will be attending college next year.
    Apparently the Federal Government thinks that we should be able to contribute – PER CHILD, mind you – a mere $1800 less than the “meager” (according to Michael Moore) amount we paid in taxes last year.

    Meanwhile, the idiot kids – whose parents pay little to no taxes – will get a free ride on my tax dollars to go out drinking and debauching, and at the end of all of that will not only NOT have any debt to repay, but will also probably get a job that pays so little that they won’t be paying any taxes either.

    And we’ll be paying off the parent loans for 3 kids for the next 10-20 years.

    Lovely cycle…..
