Holder’s DOJ, As If On Cue, Bellies Up To Invoke Islamic “Blasphemy” Laws In The USA!…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

HOT on the heels of Friday’s commentary, ‘Freedom of Speech: Its Evisceration of All Meaning, Its Collision Course With Moral Relativism’ – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/31/freedom-of-speech-its-evisceration-of-all-meaning-its-collision-course-with-moral-relativismhistoricism-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/…along comes a major Exhibit attesting to its veracity, and a bonafide test case as well. Oh, how fast the (Constitutional) dominoes fall. Again, this site lays no claim to soothsayer status. None at all.

Regardless, one must first internalize what is animating DOJ, as they effectively mandate the institution of Blasphemy Laws within America’s shores; laws which are inherent within Islam’s Sharia Law and diametrically opposed to Constitutional Law! Blasphemy Laws essence can be found within Andrew G. Bostom’s trenchant analysis at American Thinker –http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/03/ten_key_points_on_islamic_blasphemy_law.html. Study its contents well, as if your freedoms depend on doing so…and those of us who are familiar (as this blogger is, for over a decade) with this subject are equipped to see from there to here. Knowledge IS power. Fundamental at its root. 

This is precisely why the subject registers high on the scale of exploratory topics herein, commensurate with the following exhibits:

Exhibit One:  Back in July 2012, a mere month after this blog’s inception, it became incumbent to alert the readership: yes, the Radical/Islamist-in-Chief is Allah-bent on criminalizing any criticism of Islam – 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/ …and their game plan is coming to fruition.

Exhibit Number Two: And proof of the above lies within Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s installation of Shariah Law all over the Arab/Muslim world – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/26/the-leader-of-the-free-world-helps-install-shariah-law-all-over-the-mid-east-beyond-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/in anticipation of the super power of the world becoming Shariah-compliant under his “guiding” hands.

Exhibit Number Three: Straight onto the chopping block are the First Amendment rights of American citizens, as criticizing ! Islam becomes a “crime” –  https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/22/first-amendment-rights-on-the-chopping-block-via-criminalizing-criticism-of-islam-addendum-to-shariah-law-its-silencing-of-all-dissent-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/Holy Moses.

Exhibit Number Four: The end game is to strip away free speech, all in order to submit Americans (and the rest of the west will fall into line) to Sharia’s Blasphemy Laws –https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/15/shariah-law-its-silencing-of-all-dissent-its-encroachment-into-the-entire-west-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

Exhibit Number Five: Is it any wonder that Holder’s DOJ imposed a MEGA mosque upon a community, even though citizens objected to its over the top plans within their community? – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/31/a-radical-racialist-islamist-apologist-doj-imposes-a-mega-mosque-on-a-u-s-community-addendum-to-radical-in-chief-tasks-illegally-bent-ag-holder-to-criminalize-islamic-speech-commentary-by-adin/. It shouldn’t be.

Exhibit Number Six:  It is rightful to posit: Why is Congress giving “inquiring minds” the finger re Al-Jazeera, the Muslim Brotherhood’s tv front arm, as it forces its way into American airwaves, even as Shariah Law is its main objective? https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/25/congress-gives-inquiring-minds-the-finger-dont-dare-ask-questions-about-al-jazeera-the-tv-arm-of-the-brotherhood-mafias-propaganda-arsenal-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

Exhibit Number Seven: Enter, Rep Louis Gohmert, as he pieces together the main beneficiaries of gun control – Shariah Law advocates – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/02/explosive-dhs-insider-reveals-congressman-louie-gohmert-too-disarming-americans-gun-control-empowers-the-redgreen-alliancesharia-law-its-beneficiary-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

Exhibit Number Eight: Besides, how dare anyone silence patriots, as they witness their country descending into the death grip of Islam? – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/09/the-silencing-of-patriots-daring-to-criticize-islam-so-ordered-from-the-bowels-of-washington-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

Exhibit Number Nine: Atop all the above outrages, CAIR is allowed to target Americans through constant bullying, as evidenced in their push into the Eastern District of Tennessee – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/21/hamass-cair-its-targeted-american-bullying-their-commonality-with-communist-propagandists-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

‘DOJ: SLAM MUSLIMS ON FACEBOOK, FACE FEDS’ – June 1, 2012

Social media postings that ‘violate civil rights’ subject to federal jurisdiction

Bloggers beware. And those who use email, too. And those on Facebook. And Twitter. And anyone else using social media: Diss a Muslim and the Department of Justice will be on your case with the full weight of federal law.

The Obama administration, which is launching a series of Muslim Outreach Summits so that Islamists can tell federal officials how they better can serve that community, says it also is holding educational outreaches to let people know that Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal prosecution.

Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, is scheduled to appear at an event sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee next week, and will “provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media,” according to a report in the Tullahoma News in Tennessee.

“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” he said. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

He said everyone needs to understand that Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.

After all, he said, while some Muslims may blow up buildings, hijack airliners and kill thousands, there are terrorists of other religions, too.

“[Oklahoma City bombers] Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were both Christians as was the guy who shot up the Sikh temple [in Wisconsin],” Killian claimed.

The federal strategy immediately made the “Corruption Chronicles” feature assembled by officials at Judicial Watch, the corruption-fighting activists in Washington.

“In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights,” the organization said.

Judicial Watch noted that the Obama administration already has reached out to personally reassure Muslims that the DOJ is protecting them. In that unprecedented move, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based group called Muslim Advocates, which urges members not to cooperate with federal investigations, that he is grateful to have Muslims with which to partner.

The Obama administration also has hired a special Homeland Security adviser, Mohamed Elibiary, who openly supports an Islamist theologian who condemns U.S. prosecutions of terrorists, Judicial Watch said.

And the president has ordered the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to focus on Muslim diplomacy and officials with Homeland Security covertly have met with extremist Arab, Muslim and Sikh groups to talk about national security matters.

The State Department lent its weight by sending anti-America imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on a trip to the Middle East for outreach to Muslims.

Explained Judicial Watch, “Over the years, the Obama administration has embarked on a fervent crusade to befriend Muslims by creating a variety of outreach programs at a number of key federal agencies.”

Tullahoma News said Killian wants to let people know about Muslim culture and civil rights laws.

“We want to inform everybody about what the law is, but more importantly, we want to provide what the law means to Muslims, Hindus and every other religion in the country.

“It’s why we came here in the first place,” he continued. “In England, they were using Christianity to further their power in government. That’s why the First Amendment is there.”

WND had reported just a day earlier on the “Muslim Outreach Summits.”

WND initially discovered documents referring to the Muslim summits while examining a U.S. Department of Education procurement of data-gathering and report-writing services.

The services are specific to information being assembled by the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, or WHIAAPI, which Obama created via executive order in 2009.

Upon closer inspection, however, WND learned that the Education Department explicitly will direct the selected contractor to chronicle findings and recommendations gleaned from the Muslim Outreach Summits.

The White House views this year’s venues as an extension of a previous outreach to “new immigrants and refugees – some of the most underserved in the AAPI community,” according to a document titled “WHIAAPI 2013 Faith-Based and Community Engagement.”

Complementing the prior effort will be the three “regional convenings,” tentatively scheduled June 15 in Chicago, June 22 in San Francisco and June 29 in New York City.

“These cities are main AAPI immigrant hubs and entry points for new immigrants/refugees,” according to a related document, “Questions Received from Vendors: Development and Preparation of the AAPI Annual Report to the President.”

“Each convening with [sic] include panel discussions/workshops with federal officials on key issues impacting the community and also an open-dialogue session to hear directly from the community about issues of concern.”

Sometime after the three Muslim Outreach Summits, the chosen contractor will develop and then present its summary report to the president and to newly appointed WHIAAPI commissioners.

The contracting action – the first of its kind since its inception in 2008 – will help lay the foundation for the initiative’s future work, the document says.

SOUND OFF ON DOJ THREAT OF PROSECUTION FOR INFLAMMATORY POSTS AGAINST MUSLIMS

  •  It’s about time these poor folks got some protection from American bigots
  •  That’s what DOJ is for – to protect the civil rights of ALL Americans
  •  The First Amendment doesn’t protect ‘fighting words,’ so the DOJ should prosecute these violations
  •  It’s a prudent way to prevent violent hate crimes against Muslims
  •  This is a great policy and should be enforced against anyone who posts inflammatory messages against ANY religion
  •  Only right-wingers, bigots and conspiracy theorists would worry about this policy
  •  It’s another reason to unplug from such governnment-monitored platforms
  •  Hmmm. Just when did we give up the First Amendment?
  •  The next step: DOJ also institutes Shariah law and criminalizes ‘blasphemy’ of Muhammad
  •  The DOJ would never enforce such a policy if the attacks were against Christians, Jews and other religious groups
  •  This kind of political correctness and ‘multi-culturalism’ will be the death of our great nation
  •  Does this mean they will arrest IRS agents for targeting Jewish groups, too?
  •  This is just more proof the U.S. has descended into tyranny
  •  This is a religion whose adherents behead people, chop off hands and ‘honor-kill’ women, and what I SAY is inflammatory?
  •  Go ahead and prosecute me: We’ll see if bogus civil rights violations trump the First Amendment
  •  Other

It goes without saying, a DOJ which is mired in mega scandals, relative to muzzling free speech of journalists, all the while giving cover to a regime gone wild, is in ZERO position to place the handcuffs on any American who asserts their Constitutional right to free speech, or so one would think  (https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/29/irsgate-obama-inc-about-to-be-blown-wide-open-its-revolving-irs-door-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/. But such a regime ignores all conventional wisdom, thus going for broke – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/15/regime-gone-wild-obama-inc-repeatedly-caught-with-their-pants-down-where-is-this-leading-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/).

Alas, their latest audacious move, found above, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that turning the United States of America into Sharia Law-compliant is sacrosanct, and will forward march at ALL costs, as asserted herein – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/22/first-amendment-rights-on-the-chopping-block-via-criminalizing-criticism-of-islam-addendum-to-shariah-law-its-silencing-of-all-dissent-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

In this regard, this blog is warning, once again: your inherent freedoms are on the actual chopping block, slice by slice. And freedom of speech is the first, and most important, one they must grab. Its intrinsic import demands that all dissenters must be silenced and squashed. Are each of you ready to surrender? If not, what are you going to do to protect the hard fought, cherished liberties all Americans take for granted, as do most westerners? It’s your call. Your freedom is in the cross hairs.

Last but not least, a shout out to the oft mentioned “good ole’ boys”, you know, you guys (and gals) who are none too pleased to be pushed around by anyone’s radical dictates…perhaps a mass Facebook/social media campaign ought to “test” the waters. In this regard, let’s see if DOJ’s shock troops get their way. 

This blog is betting on a type of non-complacent American, one who intuits when their personal red lines of freedom are disappearing before their horrified eyes. 

Freedom of Speech & Its Evisceration Of All Meaning: Its Collision Course With Moral Relativism/Historicism…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Some constructs are obvious on their face, but many require a helping hand from those who are imbued with deeper critical thinking skills. And, this is what separates average folks from ones who are blessedly endowed with a true ability to see from there to here. It must be emphasized, this blog would be a lesser force for enlightenment, if not for the wisdom gleaned through several associates – https://adinakutnicki.com/about/ . And for that, among  other things, there is immense gratitude.

That being said, the western construct of freedom of speech is bandied about without much understanding of its true meaning/intent. But those of us who studied Constitutional Law do have a leg up on its interpretation, but tragically leftist legal scholars have perverted its essence. Herein lies its basis: 

‘First Amendment of the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution’

CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW RESPECTING AN ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF; OR ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, OR OF THE PRESS; OR THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE PEACEABLY TO ASSEMBLE, AND TO PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES.

The Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution was ratified on December 15, 1791
“Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime . . . .” — Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, dissenting Ginzberg v. United States, 383 U.S. 463 (1966)

http://www.ala.org/offices/oif/firstamendment/firstamendment

Its intrinsic understanding couldn’t be any more compelling, particularly due to today’s upside down, PC-driven world. A world in which moral relativism/historicism has stripped bare any rendering of good vs evil, yet at the same time some speech is “preferred” speech. In reality, the leadership of the free world, one which is as morally compromised as can be (https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/15/regime-gone-wild-obama-inc-repeatedly-caught-with-their-pants-down-where-is-this-leading-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/) has become the arbiter of which speech is allowable, and which is forbidden. Hence, the following has become the western “norm”, as AG Holder (Obama Inc’s chief’s legal enforcer) chills the public discourse – 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/.

Yet, if more heft is required to delineate why freedom of speech, in its Constitutional interpretation, has become DOA, peer within what is at stake…onto its chopping block – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/22/first-amendment-rights-on-the-chopping-block-via-criminalizing-criticism-of-islam-addendum-to-shariah-law-its-silencing-of-all-dissent-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

Enter, once again, Professor Paul Eidelberg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Eidelberg), gifting us sorely needed critical thinking skills.

Freedom of Speech

Prof. Paul Eidelberg – 

Freedom of speech is not an end-in-itself or merely an exercise in self-expression. Nor is it the meaningless prattle of children—although much babbling often occurs among adults. Rightly understood, speech manifests reason, the quintessential function of which is to communicate ideas, to inquire into their truth or falsity, their expediency or inexpediency, their justice or injustice.

Since speech is an intellectual/moral phenomenon, to sever it from reason, truth, and justice is to relegate this distinctively human faculty to a mere instrument of self-aggrandizement.  This is the tendency of normless as opposed to normative democracy, a tendency that degrades man and makes a mockery of his right to freedom of speech. It has also made nonsense of the term “liberal.”

In the lexicon of America’s Founding Fathers, a “liberal” was a person free from prejudice, that is, from unexamined opinions. “Liberals” could be friends despite their differences because what they held in common was more important than their differences”: confident belief in the efficacy of reason and in the existence of immutable truths concerning justice. Hence Jefferson could say in his First Inaugural Address, “We are all Republicanswe are all Federalists”—a perfectly liberal sentiment.

Unfortunately, the pillars of classical liberalism were shattered during the twentieth century, primarily by invasion of historical relativism in the halls of learning. Today, in the minds of most liberals—also called “Progressives”—truth is relative to time and place. Like Darwinism, truth is evolutionary. But why “change” should be “progressive” and not retrogressive is hardly obvious. Nevertheless, it’s the mantra of politicians who know how to arouse discontent and democratic envy.

Indeed, as a result of democratic envy, justice in contemporary America has been reduced to equality—equality abstracted from a person’s efforts or contribution to the common good. We see, therefore, that just as freedom of speech has been severed from ethical constraints, so equality has been severed from merit.

Now, it needs to be emphasized that if freedom of speech is divorced from truth, democracy is no more justifiable than tyranny. Stated in a more general way, if there are no valid or objective standards as to how man should live, then there are no rational grounds for preferring democracy to tyranny. This is a logical consequence of moral relativism. Notice, moreover, that moral relativism does not logically justify the toleration of all lifestyles. Relativism undermines any objective grounds for preferring tolerance to intolerance. Even if relativism were true, it would be deadly, especially when confronted by Islamic absolutism, whose mantra is the love of death!

The only rational defense of freedom of speech or of intellectual freedom is that it can facilitate the quest for truth, including the truth concerning how man should live. But no such quest can even begin unless we already know, in some general and authoritative way, what is right and wrong. Clearly, the claim to academic freedom can have no justification unless it is commonly understood that it is wrong to cheat or deceive, to plagiarize or steal, to defame or murder. This suggests that moral relativists, who very much dominate the academia, take civilization for granted.

The true father of civilization is none other than Abraham, the father of the Jewish people. In his discovery of the one and only God—in Abraham’s monotheism—the God of Nature is also the God of History. This monotheism is the only solid foundation for the moral unity of human nature and the idea of the human community—an idea remote from Islam, which posits the primacy of force. To the contrary, the God of Abraham posits the primacy of reason. This is why freedom of speech has its home not in the dismal and distorted monotheism of Islam—a harbinger of death—but in the life-enhancing monotheism of Judaism.

In contrast to Islam, which regards all infidels as guilty, Abraham questions God that the imminent destruction Sodom and Gomorrah may result in the death of some innocent lives. But the point requiring emphasis in the context of this article is that the freedom of speech displayed by Abraham was manifested again and again by the prophets of Israel, who fearlessly admonished kings. Why so? Because the laws of God transcend the laws of men.

But isn’t this teaching of Abraham manifested in America’s Declaration of Independence, which admonished the king of Great Britain on behalf of the “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”?

For an eyeful regarding freedom of speech, and where it is relegated within the current U.S. landscape, this should set the (legal) record straight – http://www.wnd.com/2013/05/judge-lets-muslim-violence-silence-christians/ 

And, while the above is surely not the ever patient Prof’s maiden voyage into this insidious maelstrom, precipitously due to moral relativism/historicism, there are always lessons to impart – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/23/the-incalculable-price-of-moral-relativism-the-co-option-of-freedom-of-speech-its-direct-nexus-to-bostons-jihad-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/Most significantly, the moral decline of America – the west’s guiding light – can be traced back to historicism, the twin pillar/devil to moral relativism.

As such, Professor Paul Eidelberg is incontrovertibly the master of its domain. Learn his lessons well! Pay them forward!
