The Queen reigned supreme

When figuring out what people mean, it helps to listen to what they say. Why after decades into the global jihad, those on the Left are still struggling to fathom what motivates Jihadists, boggles my mind. They tell us in every other breath why they are waging Jihad against us. To pretend they are not acting out of religious motivations found in Islam, when they quote their religious references, down to the verse, means you’re either an idiot or you’re willing to put political correctness over national security. Taking the Islam out of global Jihad is like pretending Spam is really ham.

Last night, during the second Democratic presidential debate, none of the three Democratic presidential candidates could mention the Islamic motivation that’s central to global jihad. Queen Hillary waxed on and on, praising President Bush for not calling it a holy war. Sanders and O’Malley likewise would not mention Islam in connection to the terrorist attack in Paris. They also offered no real plan for how to defeat global jihadists.

If someone says they want to kill you because his religion compels him to , then a rational person would not argue about what that person believes, you’d take the appropriate measures to protect yourself. I take what they say, as what they mean and they keep demonstrating they will act on their beliefs. Good enough for me – you say you see it as a ‘holy war” and you want to kill me and annihilate my fellow countrymen – I believe you – done deal! If the respected legal and religious scholars in the Arab world sanction your global jihad, who am I to quibble with what is really “Islamic” and what isn’t?

The Queen reigned supreme in that debate and Sanders and O’Malley tiptoed around even disagreeing with her. O’Malley got the evil eye several times, so his name assuredly got etched onto the Clinton machine hit list. Same old, same old in the coronation process.

    I can’t believe you watched the Democrat “debate”. How did you survive without throwing things? Those people are not rational, sane, or in touch with any kind of reality other than the one they conjure up in their collectivist minds.

    • I’ve endured all of the debates – this Dem one nearly put me to sleep, so I worked on my needlework, in order to keep from nodding off, as I listened to the same old drivel, lol.

      It was a cat and mouse game really – they (collectively, the moderators and the eunuchs on stage with her) fear her. O’Malley got a bit uppity in the beginning and got the evil eye a few times, before bowing down and groveling…. “Respectfully, Secretary… blah, blah, blah.” You could watch her nose inch higher and knew her minions were taking notes and adding that to their payback list.

    I watch all the debates and speeches, usually as they happen, but, at rare times, on replay—HEY, DEMS, SATURDAY ALL DAY IS COLLEGE FOOTBALL, HELLO???. (Yes, I WAS yelling. I watch football ALL DAY on Saturday in the Fall.) To make it even worse, UCLA lost at the last second! And to make it even worse-worse, we were at home in the Rose Bowl and yet for some inexplicable reason, we wore all-black, including a black helmet, instead of our unique and magnificent light-blue and gold!!!! I’m certain that’s why we lost! And to make it even stupider, that means our game was all-black-uniform UCLA against some unnamable white-jersey/red-helmeted team, and at the exact same time, in a game that I was switching back and forth to, the team I was rooting against, Baylor, wore an all-black uniform against a white-jersey/red-helmeted team, and that means that AT TIMES I FORGOT WHICH UNIFORM IN WHICH GAME I WAS ROOTING FOR! SHEESH!!! And even more imperative, there was a first-run episode of DOCTOR WHO on before our game, and which had to be shoe-horned into a between-games spot—and the Dems actually schedule a debate on a day with such significant and important TV!!!???? DIABOLICAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Where was I? Oh, yah. I was thus forced to rely on a replay and a transcription of the debate.

    For what?, you ask. The debate turned out to be an insult to the human brain.

    However, it is interesting that HRC said “We are at war with violent extremism. We are at war with people who use their religion for purposes of power and oppression.” (See the CBSNews transcript)

    I wrote an essay “A Naked Phrase Goes Clothes Shopping”, that Liberty graciously posted on this blog, discussing why I think the Left always uses such terms as “violent extremism” and states things like that they are at war with “people who use their religion for purposes of power and oppression.” The Left is at war with Christianity and with the Right, and they consider Christians and Conservatives to be, or that Christians and the Right give cover or excuses for, violent extremists, and the Left specifically states in many ways that Christians and the Right use their religion and beliefs for purposes of power and oppression. It is a fundamental theme that they keep weaving into their narrative-tapestries.

    In that essay I gave many examples, including this from when the President spoke before the UN in 2012:

    “Today we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our united nations. In this modern world, with modern technologies, for us to respond in that way to hateful speech empowers any individual who engages in such speech to create chaos around the world. We empower the worst of us if that’s how we respond. However, I do believe that it is the obligation of all leaders in all countries to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism. It is time to marginalize those who, even when not directly resorting to violence, use hatred . . . as the central organizing principle of politics, for that only gives cover and sometimes makes an excuse for those who do resort to violence. That brand of politics, . . . can’t deliver on the promise of freedom. It is time to leave the call of violence and the politics of division behind. It’s time to heed the words of Gandhi, ‘Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit’. And we must remain engaged to assure that what began with citizens demanding their rights does not end in a cycle of sectarian violence.”

    They are telling us whom they oppose every time they speak of their enemy, and it isn’t extreme Islamists.

    Please note that the Administration has nominated a person to serve to investigate “violent extremism”. Just whom do you suppose this investigation will examine? Just who is using “hatred”? I’ll bet Lois Lerner could provide a beginning list.

      MMM, totalitarians always signal the means by which they will attack their actual enemies. It almost sounds justifiable.

        Yes, the Left always clothe their metaphors in costumes appropriate to the part they are to play in the narrative, always camouflaged, always in disguise, and yet by that choice of presentation, you can see the structure beneath.The Greeks did it at Troy, didn’t they, with the fabrication of the Trojan Horse honoring the sea god that the Trojans worshipped. It was the same thing, wasn’t it? The glorious form disguising the evil function beneath.

        It’s funny—in a macabre sort of way—when sometimes the Left loses its narrative and accidentally openly show their minds. Kerry did it recently when he was speaking of the difference between the attacks of Friday compared with Charlie Hebdo, and he had to catch himself mid-flight. It was an extremely revealing moment, as though a theater curtain had malfunctioned and opened before the actors were ready.

    Kerry had a “Todd Akin” moment. It is hard to get a do over on live tv.
