There are hard core reasons why leftists and Islamists lock-arms, walk shoulder-to-shoulder and generally have each other’s backs. It has everything to do with their totalitarian views – obliterating any viewpoint but their own – as much as their abiding hatred for America’s Judeo-Christian moorings; the ultimate targeted prize, as soon as Israel is (heaven forbid) eliminated.
This is hardly news, but it is important to note how unrelenting their red/green alliance is, even when deep fissures crop up, issues which should naturally tear them apart. Think again.
Now let’s talk straight (no pun intended) and admit: yes, there are many homosexuals in Muslim/Arab nations and among those who live in the west too, even as the Iranian Hitler exhorts “there are NO gays in Iran”…yada, yada. Yet even as Islamists opine their communities are gay-free, nevertheless, they adjoin at the hip when it comes to “pinkwashing” Israel – a leftist’s natural bludgeon – a nation which is awash in homosexual tolerance, so much so that the leaders view no place too holy for the Gay Parade, even the Jewish people’s eternal capital, Jerusalem! But facts are irrelevant when common goals enter the red/green purview.
Are you confused yet? Well, under normal circumstances the above would be fruity tooty nut talk, but such is not the reality before us. But why does this even matter? It matters because as Obama Inc. (with major leftist organs at their service) shuts down all national discourse regarding the gravest peril to western civilization – Islamic terror – they are busy marching forward with their collective plans – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/28/alert-radical-in-chief-obama-tasks-illegally-bent-ag-holder-to-criminalize-islamic-speech-via-thuggish-un-dictates-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/…leaving Americans reeling from Boston’s jihad – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/26/us-western-wahhabi-jihad-mosques-bostons-intersection-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/…and thoroughly in the cross hairs.
And if all the info appears hysterical-like, listen with your ears attuned at SHARPEST pitch to the following exchange between a Repub-led Congressional committee, as they question “mama Janet” re Homeland’s embrace of – and top security clearance given to – the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia – http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JqV5QwbWeXw…You read it right, and will hopefully hear it too!
So with the above firmly implanted in mind, pay heed to the following warning, thus internalizing how it came to pass that totalitarian thought police – leftists and Islamists – are setting America’s (the west’s) agenda, and what patriots intend to do about it, if anything.
‘Do conservatives need yet another lesson on why we are losing the war for the hearts and minds of people?’
There was yet another lesson yesterday. If you think about where we were say twenty-five years ago and where we are today, where will we be twenty years from now?
Unless we fight this one-way street of “tolerance” conservatism and the by products of conservatism, namely freedom and liberty, will be dead in this nation.
What has happened?
Yesterday, Jason Collins, a virtually unknown NBA player came out and announced he was gay. The media that had been waiting for this all but swooned over a guy whose career has been a lot less than spectacular.
The politically correct establishment wasted no time throwing themselves all over this unknown player. Barack Obama tweeted support for Collins and called him to admire his courage. Funny, Obama has not been able to call or even acknowledge Chris Kyle and his tragic death or Brian Terry. These men lived and died for this nation and they do not receive any recognition from the White House but some obscure basketball player who decides to announce he is gay does.
The biggest blowback came on ESPN. ESPN is owned by Disney, which is notorious in its left wing bias. Commenting on the “news” of Collins coming out, two analysts discussed the impact of it. One was LZ Granderson. Granderson is openly gay. The other was Chris Broussard. Granderson of course spoke of this “event” in glowing terms. Then came Broussard’s turn. He offered his opinion.
Broussard’s opinion was deemed so outrageous that ESPN has apologized for it and there is now a massive campaign to have Broussard fired for expressing his opinion.
What did Broussard say?
Here’s what Chris Broussard said:
I’d like to second what LZ said. “I’m a Christian. I don’t agree with homosexuality. I think it’s a sin, as I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is. [ESPN’s] L.Z. [Granderson] knows that. He and I have played on basketball teams together for several years. We’ve gone out, had lunch together, we’ve had good conversations, good laughs together. He knows where I stand and I know where he stands. I don’t criticize him, he doesn’t criticize me, and call me a bigot, call me ignorant, call me intolerant.
In talking to some people around the league, there’s a lot Christians in the NBA and just because they disagree with that lifestyle, they don’t want to be called bigoted and intolerant and things like that. That’s what LZ was getting at. Just like I may tolerate someone whose lifestyle I disagree with, he can tolerate my beliefs. He disagrees with my beliefs and my lifestyle but true tolerance and acceptance is being able to handle that as mature adults and not criticize each other and call each other names…
Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly premarital sex between heterosexuals, if you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits, it says that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, adultery, fornication, premarital sex between heterosexuals, whatever it may be, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I do not think the Bible would characterize them as a Christian.
Chris Broussard expressed a traditional view of morality. He did not demand that Jason Collins be stoned, fired or even suffer any repercussions as a result of his decision.
Within hours, the hashtag #firechrisbroussard was trending on Twitter. Liberals were in apoplexy that someone had dared to disagree with the political correctness that dictates we must agree without dissent.
Chris Broussard made an excellent argument for tolerance the way it should be. What we have seen is the way tolerance is practiced by the left.
There is another more important lesson we need to learn here.
There are far more people under 30 who watch ESPN and have their opinions formed or at least influenced by that channel than watch Fox News or listen to talk radio. Fortunately more people watch ESPN than watch MSNBC either. But then again, the Cooking Channel has higher ratings than MSNBC!
Most of the under 30 crowd is being sent a message by the left. That message is either you agree with us or you disagree with us. If you disagree with us you are a despicable homophobe and a few other things. Chris Broussard had a simple message. His message was I disagree with Jason Collins but I will be tolerant of him. The left’s message was if you do not agree with us, we will destroy you.
We fight for freedom and liberty. If Jason Collins wants to be gay and public about it, freedom means that he can do that. Freedom also means that Chris Broussard can disagree with that call.
If we do not find ways to start reaching the under 30 demographic with the concepts of freedom and liberty, the left will own them as they move into middle age.
Stunningly, the under 30 demographic is strongly pro-Obama. Right now, unemployment among those under 30 is 50%. One half of all college graduates cannot find full time jobs. Ten years ago, when the GOP was in charge, 90% of college graduates were employed. Unfortunately conservatives and the GOP do a terrible job of messaging and this message is not reaching those under 30.
If we do not find ways to reach them with the message of freedom, liberty, free markets and prosperity, we will fulfill Ronald Reagan’s warning that we will be sitting around in our old age telling our children and our grandchildren what it was like to live in America with it was a free and a prosperous nation.
http://www.teapartynation.com/forum/topics/another-lesson-in-modern-tolerance . Do take a peek at what happens when even a groveling media pundit attempts to apologize for his “insensitivity” to leftist dogma/thought police –http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/05/howard-kurtz-fired-cnn-reliable-sources_n_3219008.html…their wrath is swift and massive, as Howard Kurtz gets fired. Orwell’s universe….personally have no such issues, as this blogger/op-ed writer is under no one’s boot!
Despite all of the self evident truths there is another “delicate” matter which requires further outing. It more than begs the question: with the U.S. falling off the economic cliff; urban jihad smacking America’s shores; the Mid-East poised for (literal) hell fire; why in the world did the anti-American Commander-in-Chief take time to call an NBA player who “came out”? Now, far be it from this blogger to be unsympathetic to said “confessions” (sarcasm off…), but it is totally inexplicable for any POTUS to make such a (publicly announced) call – or maybe not….considering where his heart throb really lies – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/21/the-continued-adventures-of-the-down-low-potus-his-previous-body-double-reggie-love-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ . To be sure, there is nothing to be gained politically from sucking up to the homosexual community, after all, what are they gonna do, punish him at the polls?
So viewed under this microscopic prism, the question is flipped upside its head: how could he NOT call…fist bumps and all? Recall, he does have a “thing” for basketball players, and he is more than excited about any opportunity to poke a finger at Conservative America in the process. Most essentially, he is daring “Middle America” to question the why’s and wherefore’s of his preferences; both on a personal level and regarding his true political alliances – reds & greens.
Do you dare?
Besides, who among us hasn’t taken one for the “home team”? – http://www.wnd.com/2013/05/nbas-jason-collins-gay-superhero/…as “gayness” becomes the new big thing among the progressive set. Hell no, the Jason Collin’s of the world won’t fade quietly into twilight’s mist…they too shall prevail! The new “civil rights’s” train marches onward and upward…you can’t make this crap up.
Lest the readers think the above is a whole lot of hooey and phooey, this is what the Gay-in-Chief had to say about Collins’s “heroic” self outing, and CBS News describes it thusly: “President Obama told reporters he ‘couldn’t be prouder’ of NBA player Jason Collins, who one day earlier announced he was gay. Mr. Obama said Collins is ‘a role model’ to be able to say, ‘I’m still 7-foot-tall and can bang with Shaq, and deliver a hard foul.’”
Ahh…the multi-flavored/textured rewards of sodomy!
