Emperor For Life!

~ BACK IN THE DAY (say, a year ago, all the way back to Bush’s Inauguration), there was all sorts of conspirazoid ranting about Dubya’s secret plans to abolish term limits and be president for life.

Those were evidence-free assertions, and come next week, said fever-swamp delusions were completely, terribly wrong. And mean-spirited. And just more of the usual leftist tribal war-hooting: “We Good, Them Badder Than Bads”.

Comes 2009– “House Bill Introduced to Repeal Constitutional Limit on Terms Obama can Serve.” Read the whole thing.

That is, Obama is willing to have this done in his name, so he might be– say, president for 12 or 16 years, or as long as he can keep the party going. Before, it was a theoretical proposal– now that the O-Messiah has come, who will heal the planet, bring world peace, calm our economic storms, and otherwise walk on political water.. why, let’s go there! He will use the excuse of his soft-fascist hero and economic-stimulus idol FDR– even though FDR was a world-war president, and the once-only-ever exception (he served two and a bit terms) broke with the from the start practice of all other American Presidents since George Washington.

Why did Washington and following (as enshrined in the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution) allow term-limits to their power? To avoid any sense of monarchy or dictatorship in the U.S. system, having rejected both in seeking independence from the English King on the one hand, and rejecting the example of the French Revolution and Napoleon on the other.

Canada: “Foreign anti-Semitic provocateurs flying terrorist flags

rally2swastika

Go read Shaidle, first.

The evidence has been all around us for a couple of weeks. Jihadists and anti-Semites and militant Muslims are here. Normally, it’s hidden: hate spewed from Mosque pulpits, al-Jazeera retailing Jihadism and sharia via the satellite dishes, the Saudi-published literature. Nice and quiet multiculti tapestry, right? Not so much. It’s like a hidden cancer growing for decades without causing pain, bleeding or lumps. There are signs, but only for those willing to see and understand. There are none so blind as those who will not– who choose not– to see.

Ripe For The Picking?

This is not conspiracy theorism: we’re not interested in invisible possibilities versus what’s happening in front of our noses over and over again. Cartoon riots, Pope riots, Fitna riots, Gaza riots, and riots to be named later. The root is not ‘poverty’ or ‘alienation’ or any other liberal self-hating excuse-making– we’re dealing with an absolutist culture on steroids as promulgated by The Muslim Brotherhood, and they consider us weak, worthless, and eminently conquerable.

They are using both our strengths and weaknesses against us: our pity for the weak and needy and dispossessed, and our confusions about what constitutes the true and the good, and the spiritual roots of our secular society. We shouldn’t expect the same from our opponents: their various cultures and religious utlook are tribal, warlike, and largely pre-Medieval. Most of their home-regions are failed post-colonial states, dictatorships, civil war-zones, or hotbeds of crime and terrorism.

To folk from that background, the freedoms and principles and riches of North America and Europe seem like a fantasy-land, full with booty, ruled by silly and ghostly principles that make no sense. We’re like a continent of juicy Constantinoples, full of weak and unmanly cowards and infidels.

Apply, Lather, Rinse, Repeat

We’ve seen all this before: AD 630-750, then AD 900-1685; and AD 1923-2009. This latter Jihad is internet-ready, modern-armed, media-savvy, and highly motivated. It’s like the progressive Utopian cult: enthused, motivated, uncomplicated enough to be understood by anybody. Both hate classical Christianity, and seek to marginalize it internationally and at home, since the real Jesus undercuts the claims of both Leviathan and Muhammed.

The Islamist street-protests and implicit threat of violence is useful for intimidating the populace, the media and elites, and the ruling class. The real threat, as we’ve noted before, is the infiltration of government, education, the NGO culture, and the national conversation by sharia supremicism, and cover-groups for radical Islam.

The velvet glove hides an iron fist, and as Islam grows more triumphant, the intimidation, no-go zones, giant mosques, political violence and second-class status for democracy and non-Muslims ensues. Watch Britain, France, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden: the future is now. Remember: once the land is claimed in the name of militant Islam, it properly belongs to them. The actually moderate Muslims who are glad for Canada are regarded as compromised and worse than infidels.

Open Your Eyes and Ears

Watch the protests, and understand. If you’re near a protest, head out and shout back. Report, take pictures, film, names, and document this ugly moment and threat to democracy, using our own society and principles against us as a weapon. Just because most of the time it’s undercover doesn’t mean we’re not in trouble.

Want to join the counter-jihad? Go and Google the following terms: Canada Hamas; or Canada Hizballah; or Canada Jihad. Go ahead, we dares ya. Then send us what you find.

The war is here, in peaceable Canada.

Actually, Mr. Ryan, it is Jew-hate

An Open Letter to Sid Ryan, President, CUPE Ontario

Dear Mr. Ryan:

I notice that at the latest anti-Israel “protest” in Toronto, the one where “protesters” were heard to shout ‘Hitler didn’t do a good job’ and ‘Jewish children, you are going to f*cking die’, you once again mounted your high horse, draped yourself in a cloak of self-righteous concern for Palestinians, and insisted with all the passion of Richard Nixon avowing “I am not a crook” that you are not an “anti-Semite”-i.e., that you do not “hate Jews.”

I am not the least bit sorry to have to tell you, sir, that you are in the grip of a serious misapprehension.

Your ability to delude yourself arises, largely, I think, from confusion over the term “anti-Semitism.” As an all-purpose description for “Jew-hate,” it is an anachronism that has the scent of stale history about it. As such, it captures all the Jew-hate from the past, but enables those whose hatred of Jews stems from their detestation of Israel, the Jewish state, to wriggle out of the charge that they, too, are haters.
