Reform or Conquest


Sohaib Abbasi, a former executive at the Oracle Corporation, contributed $2.5 million to the Abbasi Program; Lysbeth Warren, a member of the Humanities and Sciences Council at Stanford, kicked in another $2 million. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, apparently worried about their reputation as spendthrifts, added a $4.5 million grant to the fund. That's makes $9 million-a right tidy sum. But it's for a good cause-it's for education

Who knows? Maybe Johnny will finally learn how to read, and Jane will acquire the necessary skills to become a first-rate junior executive at-say, McDonalds or Wal-Mart.

But wait a minute-hold your horses-this is Berkeley we're talking about here, and there are strings attached. If Johnny and Jane expect to be on the receiving end of any of this educational largesse they will have to study the Koran, learn how to spell burqa, plan a pilgrimage to Mecca, and read the works of John Esposito-especially the latter.

The $9 million is more for indoctrination than it is for education.  It will fund the new Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies at Berkeley. It will expand the current curriculum of Islamic Studies, and will, hopefully, promote a better understanding of Muslim culture.

Say what? Promote a better understanding of Muslim culture? Now if that doesn't smell fishy it's because somebody has let Charlie out of the can. Isn't Islam a religion? They're not trying to promote a religion are they? Hasn't anybody told them about the separations of Church and State? Aren't these the same folks who have repeatedly excoriated Jerry Falwell for attempting to breech the famous wall between Church and State? Is there anybody at Berkeley who remembers Jefferson and Madison? Do they think Old Jeff and Little Jemmy would have approved of this nonsense? What would that dirty little atheist Tom Paine have had to say? Would it be printable?

What are these Berkeley rascals up to? Do they have an ulterior motive-a hidden agenda-are they trying to undermine Christianity, capitalism, George W. Bush, and the US government?  Naw-those scoundrels would never attempt anything like that! Maybe they're planning to sell prayer rugs between classes. There's a growing market in prayer rugs. Does Esposito have some kind of a contract with the Wahabbis? What are they paying for a convert these days?

John Esposito, a professor at Georgetown University and chair of Georgetown's Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy, kicked off the Studies lecture series when he spoke on "The Future of Islam" at Berkeley's Oak Lounge. Esposito is Islam's foremost promoter in America. He beats the loudest drum in the Muslim parade. He's a super salesman. He could have sold shares in the French Panama Canal Company to Ferdinand de Lesseps; he could have sold the Brooklyn Bridge to W.C. Fields; if he stood on a street corner describing a Schwinn to a five-year-old and the Fonz happened by, the Fonz would buy one sight unseen, thinking he was getting the greatest Harley ever built. Esposito is a walking one-man South Sea's Bubble.

"We have to broaden our notions of plurality and tolerance," said Esposito. "Tolerance must be based on mutual understanding and respect...Unless we do that, it makes for a bleak future.

Mutual understanding and respect? Of course! That's it! Esposito is right! What an incredible insight! What an astounding breakthrough! Now if we can get the mullahs and the ayatollahs and the imams and the Wahabbis who run those Madrassas schools they call universities in Egypt and Saudi Arabia and Iran to adopt the Esposito program the future safety of the world is assured!

But, alas-wouldn't you know-Esposito is not talking about Mohammed and Habib and the Mad-Rats-Asses schools, he's talking about Potsy and Ralph Malph! Yes, sad to say, Potsy and Ralph Malph are culturally deprived as far as Esposito is concerned. Neither of them has ever been inside a mosque-and the Fonz has never been inside a church, but that's another story. It wouldn't hurt if the boys learned a few suras and hadiths-that would make Ibrahim Hoopercrit more comfortable when he comes around to collect the jizya. That's the tax non-Muslims-dhimmis-pay to practice their religion in the lands of the mullahs. Unlikely, you say? Not according to Hooper.  He says America will eventually become a Muslim country-especially if Esposito and his friends have anything to say about it.

If we can't be frank, let's at least be honest. Potsy and Ralph Malph have a more inclusive notion of what plurality entails than either Esposito or Hooper. There is nothing in the way of diversity the boys haven't tried. They will eat anything that's been dead for at least five seconds. And clothes? Why, they will wear a sarong in the morning, a swallowtail coat in the afternoon, and a caftan and a pith helmet at night, and their sister's underpants when nobody is looking. And, except for Roseanne Barr and Moms Mably, there isn't woman they haven't tried to date. They will listen to any kind of music-mariachi, polka. My Gosh! They know who Nelson Eddy is! And once a year they get together for a Chipmunks festival! And do they ever love sports! They would walk a mile-and they have-just to see how many people can stuff their carcasses into a phone booth-a sport that has been in a steady and sad decline. But one must keep an eye on Ralph Malph-he's very competitive. He has been caught cheating at miniature golf.

Plurality? Tolerance? Potsy and Ralph Malph are full of plurality and tolerance. They have a surfeit of it. Why would Esposito insist on more plurality and tolerance for Potsy and Ralph Malph and make little of no demands on Mohammed and Habib? Isn't it a two-way street?

One more bit of wisdom-or perhaps nonsense-from Esposito. He says people are always looking for a Martin Luther of Islam-someone to lead an Islamic version of the Protestant Reformation. This is very interesting. During the Protestant Reformation, Christians wasted an awful lot of their time killing other Christians. That was how they settled their differences. Who can forget The Thirty Years War and the Counter Reformation? Well-maybe Esposito can.

If Islam is undergoing a reformation as Esposito insists, why are the Muslims killing Christians instead of Muslims? Why are they killing Jews instead of Muslims? And Hindus? And animists? And Buddhists? And atheists? And agnostics? Have they got it backwards-or is someone confusing conquest with reformation?



Kevin Barrett

U.W. Madsion Hires Muslim Janitor

To Teach anti-Bush Conspiracy Theories


Anybody who can spell existentialist must be smarter than Bill O'Reilly. A guy who can spend day after day in a shack in the woods and doesn't have pinecones sticking in his hair and a beard down to his knees has got to be civilized-erudite even. This rascal reads Kurt Vonnegut; he worked for Gary Hart; he would have been on Laugh In if Dick Martin had known a first-rate standup comedian when he saw one. He knows more about Christianity than Jerry Falwell, more about Judaism than the rascal who wrote The Protocols of the Elders of Zion; more about Buddhism than a Jihadist with a satchel charge eyeing a giant Buddha; more about Hinduism than a van loaded with Hari Krishnas on the way to the Bhagwan's ranch in Colorado. He could have told James Jones he was using the wrong flavor of Kool-Aid.

Gosh, and he writes poetry-not one-two, buckle my shoe poetry, but real honest-to-goodness poetry, the kind of stuff that Maynard G. Krebs would have read; that would have brought tears to the eyes of Jack Keroauc. He's been a mystic, a philosopher, a Renaissance man and a good caretaker. (That's a fancy word for janitor) He took care of a cabin in the woods for a Madison Wisconsin Muslim organization called Khidria and never once was he cited by a Ranger for starting a major forest fire! He was so smart he became a Muslim. That's what happens to an intellectual once he has learned everything worth learning. It's a curse!

In recognition of his incredible brilliance the University of Wisconsin at Madison gave him a teaching job. That's right. This fall he will be freely expressing his opinions as facts in an introductory class on Islam. His name is Kevin Barrett and some of his students may be forced to ‘Grin-an'-bear-it' in order to survive. He is a suspicious fellow. He sees conspiracies everywhere. The dar al-Harb is full of them. Joe McCarthy had a list of 57 Communists working in the State Department. Barrett's secret list of Nazis working for George W. Bush must top that by a least ten Obergrupenfuhrers. As any fool would know if one totals up the number of verses in the Qur'an, the Sunnah, the hadiths and the various commentaries pertaining to 9/11 and divides by the estimated number of fleas in Osama bin Laden's beard, multiplied by the number of unrequited virgins in Allah's Great Whorehouse in the Sky one can only come to the conclusion that it was George W. Bush and company that brought down the World Trade Center on 9/11 and not that simpleminded dupe Mohammed Atta and his slack-jawed cretinous friends. One can't argue with that kind of logic-and that's the kind of logic the students in Barrett's class will be up against.

Not unexpectedly, Barrett has come under attack by a number of state legislators-most but not all of them Republicans. They want Barrett fired. Democrats say it is a free speech issue and they will defend it to the death, blah, blah and blah. Now if it was David Duke...well, some speech is not as free as others.

Pat Farrell, U.W.-Madison Provost, defended Barrett. Barrett is a regular old Mr. Chips. "I still have every expectation this will be a very positive educational experience for our students,' said Farrell. "Some are upset about Mr. Barrett's viewpoints on 9/11 and don't want to pay much attention to what makes for a quality educational experience."

If Farrell really meant that he would have no objections to hiring a past-president of the John Birch Society to teach a class on McCarthyism-how Tail-Gunner Joe had been correct in his assessment of Communist infiltration into the Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower administrations. McCarthy had actually underestimated the number of fellow travelers serving in the US government but it scarcely matters now-there are more Communists teaching at U.W.-Madison these days than there are in the Kremlin. There is a lot of hypocrisy in a quality educational experience.

The question is why would someone with Barrett's incredible intellectual gifts espouse such an obviously ridiculous conspiracy theory? The late Eric Hoffer said it was intellectual hubris that led great minds to radicalism and eventually to mass murder. Like Noam Chomsky, Norman Finklestein, Eric Hobsbawm and other intellectuals, but not Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore, Barrett knows more about everything that counts than just about anybody else and he knows it. But nobody pays Barrett or Chomsky or Finklestein the mass deference their exceptional genius requires. They are not allowed to run anything; a good plumber and a reliable mailman receive more deference and get more invitations to parties where the hot babes are. And waitresses think they are cheap. This is humiliating!

In other times and other civilizations, intellectuals, like Hitler and Lenin and Mao, actually ran countries-big countries with marching Armies and fireworks every evening, not itty-bitty university departments with AWOL secretaries and bad plumbing. American intellectuals would like to try their hand at running a country. They would like to run America-Harry Truman ran America and if Harry Truman could, anyone could, but the vox populi are unaware of the unparalleled genius of its intellectual class, the good news being kept from then, and the political parties are run by crass opportunists who seem to think they know more about what is good for the people than the intellectual elite. Isn't that silly? It's easy for intellectuals to hate those kinds of countries. There aren't many of then. America is one. Intellectuals hate America. Chomsky hates America; Finklestein hates America.

Barrett has a second problem in addition to intellectual hubris-he knows too much for his own good. He has supposedly penetrated to the depths of every religion know to man and some unknown. Maybe he missed the Dukhobors. He knows Christianity inside out; he knows Zen; he is familiar with L. Ron Hubbard in a non-sexual way. He knows Freud and Jonge and he's lived in the woods. Quite frankly, taken altogether it is not a healthy lifestyle. If he had christened his shack in the pines Walden Pond instead of Zawiya (Islamic spiritual retreat) it might have helped. Barrett is a very confused fellow. Christianity, existentialism, the Kennedy assassination, a religion of peace and tolerance, and 9/11 would be enough to warp an ordinary mind, obliterate an exceptional one. It could explain why Barrett became a Muslim and why he believes in silly conspiracies but it doesn't explain why he was hired. To give students a quality educational experience is about as flimsy an excuse as ‘the dog ate my homework.' If anybody should be fired, it should be Pat Farrell. That would give everybody a quality educational experience-including Farrell.



Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse 9/11

If David Nason, New York correspondent for The Weekend Australian, had wanted to interview a philosopher he would have picked somebody like Jed Clampett or Barney Miller. Jed was Clarence Darrow, Judge Roy Bean and Abe Lincoln all rolled into one. Nothing ever fazed him-not double-naught spies, Ellie's critters, or Granny's tonic; he had an answer for everything. Senator Zell Miller (D-GA) has patterned himself after Jed. Barney Miller was more like Erich Fromme with a little Aristotle thrown in. He once said a good suit should last ten years. Anyone who could handle Wojo and Inspector Luger on a daily basis would be more than a match for such pseudo-philosophers as Noam Chomsky or Robert Jensen. With their feet planted firmly on the ground, Jed and Barney would never have praised or made excuses for suicide bombers.

If Nason had been looking for an old curmudgeon he couldn't have gone wrong with Andy Rooney. If he had wanted a radical leftwing firebrand there was Michael Moore or Howard Dean. Unfortunately, what Nason got was Kurt Vonnegut, author of Slaughterhouse Five and Breakfast of Champions. Nason was on assignment and Vonnegut was promoting his new book, Man Without a Country, a collection of anti-Bush essays.

Vonnegut is not a philosopher no matter what he might think. He doesn't use words like Well, doggies and Jimcracky and he's probably never seen the insides of a cracker barrel. He seems lost in a beatnik time-warp; coffeehouses, poetry, bongos, goatees, women in black leotards; Che and Fidel; Jack Kerouac On the Road; Maynard G. Krebs standing watch over the Endicott Building; Edsels and Moa; students flirting with Buddhism and Communism-not dirty or grungy enough to be a hippie, but older, nastier, no longer capable of understanding America, and with his own mortality staring him in the face, unable to keep his mouth shut for any appreciable length of time; the anger of a foolish old man, doddering on the brink of oblivion, unaware of  the onset of senescence.

Could this be Kurt Vonnegut? Who else? It's not Jed Clampett; it's not Andy Rooney. Vonnegut never starts a sentence with Well, doggies or Did you ever notice- So as not to disappoint anyone, Vonnegut discussed his world view with Nason. "What George Bush and his gang did not realize was that people fight back," he said. Ah-hah! Bush has a gang! That is not good. Al Capone had a gang; Wild Bill Doolan had a gang. Bad people have gangs. Ipso facto, Bush must be bad. This is cracker barrel philosophy without the barrel.                                                                                                                                                  

Vonnegut had a lot to say about suicide bombers. "I regard them as very brave people," he said. To die for what you believe is "sweet and honorable." He rejected the idea that Islamo-fascists like Mohammed Atta and Hani Hanjour were motivated by twisted religious beliefs. "I regard them as very brave people, yes."

Brave? No, Kurt, you are mistaken. Brave people do not commit suicide. Suicide is the opposite of bravery. Brave people take chances; they risk their lives, sometimes against enormous odds, but it's to save people. They don't deliberately kill themselves hoping to take thousands of innocent people with them; bravery is Audie Murphy charging a pillbox to save his buddies; bravery is John Q. Public diving into a frozen river to save a drowning child. Brave people do not want to die; they want to live; they do what needs to be done to save lives; that is what makes them brave. Fools, maniacs and those twisted and perverted by religious fascism want to die. They don't save lives; they take lives. Truth and reason have no place in their warped world. They are not brave; they are cowardly. Mohammed Atta, the result of 1,400 years of systematic brainwashing, did not commit an act of bravery by crashing that plane into the World Trade Center-it was an insane and selfish act-he was on his way, one might say he was Hell bent, to Allah's Great Whorehouse in the Sky. Seventy-two virgins can last one of Allah's slaves a long time.

Vonnegut said, "They are dying for their own self-respect. It's a terrible thing to deprive someone of their self-respect."

What did Vonnegut mean by that? Did he mean anything at all? Was his mind wandering? This is confusing. Self-respect? Was that why Henry Clay fought a duel with John Randolph of Roanoke? Was that why Lt. Col. Jochen Peiper of the Waffen SS ordered the execution of 72 American prisoners of war at Malmedy?  Were Clay and Peiper trying to regain their self-respect? Had they been dis-respected like, say-Rodney King? Was that what Lieutenant William Calley had in mind at My Lai? If Rodney Dangerfield had come into the world without a religion would he have chosen Islam? So Mohammed Atta and Hani Hanjour killed thousands of innocent people because they were deprived of their self-respect? Is that why Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR has never apologized or even made an excuse for their horrendous crime? Even the Wizard of Oz could not have helped those disgusting thugs. One gains self-respect by doing the Lord's work, not the Devil's bidding-though in Islam the demarcation line is slim indeed.

Qur'an: 2:191: "And kill them wherever you find and catch them. Drive them out from where they have turned you out (think Herr Adolph's lebensraum); for Al-Fitnah (polytheism, disbelief, oppression) is worse than slaughter."

Henry Clay missed; John Randolph was as slim as a blade of grass. Peiper murdered enemy soldiers not civilians-nonetheless a horrible crime. Islamic suicide bombers make no distinction between soldiers and civilians; they are far beyond Peiper. More Americans might have died at Malmedy had not a German Sergeant ignored his lack of rank and prevented a German officer from killing yet more prisoners. Is there anyone in Islam that would stop a suicide bomber? That's where self-respect begins. Jed Clampett knew that; Barney Miller knew that; Kurt Vonnegut doesn't. Vonnegut compared the destruction of the World Trade Center to Truman's dropping of the atomic bomb on Japan. Nine-eleven was more like Pearl Harbor, Kurt-a declaration of war on the West. Get it?

Then Vonnegut got philosophical. Could anything match a suicide bomber's last seconds on earth? The rush must be awesome! Fantastic! "You would know death was going to be painless," he said. "So the anticipation-it must be an amazing high." Kerouac? Timothy Leary? Jed Clampett had that same feeling every time he sampled Granny's tonic, but Jed always woke up alive the next morning.                                            

Vonnegut is 83-years-old-and that might be part of the problem; but just to be safe, when he's around, lock up the hemlock. He's not going to pull a Charles Bronson, but he might think he's Socrates.



     The Democratic Party's war on white heterosexual Christian males


Is the Republican Party warring on women? Frank Rich of the New York Times thinks so. So does Peggy Noonan. So does Rep. James McDermott (D-WA). So does most of the Democratic Party. MSNBC is sure of it. Forget their vicious no-holds-barred sexist chauvinist attacks on Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin. They know sexist chauvinism when they see it-they have been engaged in it for so long.
Of course, it's not just women--the Republicans are also warring on science, aducation, Michelle Obama, medicare, immigration, and the sons and daughters of Susan B. Anthony. Rep. John Conyers (D-M) called the GOP's Violence Against Women Act, "...a flat attack on women."

The Republican Party is a warlike party. No doubt of it. Grant and Sheridan were Republican-if not at first, eventually-and so were Eisenhower and Ridgeway and Pershing and Washington would have been too had he had the opportunity. On the other hand Bobby Lee was a Democrat and so were Stonewall and Jeb and Jeff Davis.

The talk of a Republican war on women is, of course, nonsense. The purpose of the Democratic Party's assault on the GOP is to hide from the American people the war the Liberal-progressives have been waging on the white heterosexual Christian male since LBJ's chickens came home to roost after Viet Nam.

Now Ed Schultz might deny this and a tremor of rage might course up Chris Matthews' spine just to hear someone mention this but it is true. Let Frank Rich gag; let Peggy Noonan burn with indignation; let Woody Boyd shake his head in confusion-or is that Woody Harrelson; there appears to be little difference.

But the facts are there. Pay attention now, Rep. Conyers: whenever there is a dispute between men and woman, whether it be political, social or economic, the Democratic Party sides with the women, the feminists, the Joy Behars.

Whenever there is a difficulty between heterosexuals and homosexuals-gays, lesbian, transgendered-they side with the minority sexual orientation.

Whenever there is a confrontation between Christians and non-Christians, the Liberal-progressives spout Jefferson's separation of Church and State and then leap to the defense of whatever religion or belief they perceive to be under attack-Muslims, atheists, agnostics, animists, never the Christians.

It should be stated here that most Democrats are not Christians. Oh, they say they are and many of them they think they are but they are not-they are Abrahamists. They are followers of Robert Edgar. According to Edgar and the National Council of Churches the three great religions-Islam, Christianity and Judaism-have so much in common as to be virtually indistinguishable.

To people like Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Nancy Pelosi a Jihadist Muslim is no different than an altar boy daydreaming about his girl friend while burning incense during the Fifth Station of the Cross or a Buddhist who has just discovered the beer at Joe's Bar and Grille and Gun Club has therapeutic value.

If one thinks his religion is no better than anyone else's religion then it isn't. One cannot be both an Abrahamist and a Christian at the same time. It is in the "O, ye of little faith," thing. The average Abrahamist has little in the way of religious faith. He is a Liberation Theologist that has sold Christ down the Marxist drain.

A Muslim does not think his religion is no better than any other. It is not only superior it is supreme. The Qur'an tells him on every page that Islam should be the only religion on the face of the earth.

Heterosexual, Christian, male-that's three. The fourth leg of the Liberal tetrad is probably the most significant. It's whiteness.

Whenever there is a clash between whites and non-whites the Democratic Party falls in line behind Martin Luther King. Well, not behind the Martin Luther King-but behind his ghost, his present day representation. These ghosts are many and diverse, and few if any bear any real resemblance to the late Dr. King. They come from all walks and stalks of life-from politics, from entertainment, from religion. There's Barack Obama, Maxine Waters, Harry Belafonte, Danny Glover, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan.

It's been a long time since Martin Luther King strode the earth preaching love and justice, not hate and revenge. His many imitators have turned his "I've got a dream speech" into "I'm having a nightmare." There are dozens of these pseudo Kings and most of whom fall under the rubric of charlatan. Al Sharpton comes to mind. Despite his record Sharpton has a large and enthusiastic following in the Democratic Party.

When Jimmy Carter was President he shamelessly promoted Jesse Jackson. With the Peanut Farmer's backing the self-anointed heir to King's mantel was able to mastermind the most successful protection racket in the history of the world. With the collusion of a Liberal-progressive judicial system Jesse looted America. No corporation, no labor union; no grocery chain, no mom and pop business was safe. Al Capone had to work for his millions and he gave more to charity than Jesse. The recent housing collapse had its origins in the Democratic Party's attempt to provide expensive housing for minorities that could not have afforded to rent a Dogpatch lean-to even if they had had a fulltime job at the Skonkworks. Barney Frank and his pals knew that thousands-make that tens of thousands, including many whites-would never pay off their loans and that some of them would not even make an attempt. ACORN, Fanny Mae, Freddy Mac-was just the tip of the iceberg that punctured the American economic system.

And then there is Eric Holder. One of the first things Holder said when he became Attorney General was that he was not going to prosecute hate crimes against whites. Hate crimes against whites? Is there such a thing? Yes, there is and Holder has said he would not prosecute crimes against them. Sure, but hate crimes against whites are so few in number as to scarcely matter-right? They hardly ever happen-right? Maybe that's what Holder thinks. The vast majority of victims of hate crimes are black. Sure. The media tells us that every day-Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton: the New York Times. Is it true? Alas, it is not. It is a lie.

Those that wish to remake America in a Marxist image continually fudge the facts, they rework the statistics, ignore anything that might be an embarrassment to certain groups and resort to outright lies when necessary. The vast majority of victims of hate crimes are not black-they are white. The liberal-progressive educational system and the 24-hour media indoctrination service has done a great job of portraying Whitey as the perpetrator of every vile hate crime imaginable and the sons and daughters of poor old Uncle Tom as the victims. Bubba is slack-jawed, beady-eyed, conscienceless and white.

One of the most ugly and disturbing facts of life in 21st Century America is the incredible number of white women being raped by black males. Though it is seldom if ever mentioned in the press African-American men have been raping approximately 20,000 white women every year. That's an average of 56 per day! It is unconscionable and was certainly not part of Dr. King's dream.

A black civil rights activist appeared recently on Sean Hannity to decry the level of black on black violence. He said that during the course of their conversation three young black men had been killed. During that same period several times that many white women had been raped by black males. Hannity's guest did not mention black on white rape.

It might be added that white males rape very few black women-about a hundred cases a year. This is what makes the Duke lacrosse rape case so disgusting. One can understand why African-Americans do not want to talk about black on white rape. But that did not keep black civil rights leaders from making the Duke case a cause celebre. Why did they do it? Just to trash Whitey? The evidence was flimsy at best. Wouldn't somebody bring up the large number of white women raped by blacks? Not to worry. When one has the whole-hearted backing of a biased media one can make what charges what one wants.

Another disturbing fact: For every black man murdered by whites seven whites are murdered by blacks. So we get the Treyvon Martin story. The media is in the tank-ninety percent of it is enthusiastically backing the Democratic Party's war on the white heterosexual Christian male for control of America's future.

There has been a sea change in American politics since the days of Dr. King. The culture has been stood on its head. The Congressional Black Caucus has become a racist group and the NAACP has become a racist organization. For more than sixty years the NAACP held the high moral ground. Then came LBJ and the passage of the great Civil Rights Legislation. A new age beckoned. Maybe the NAACP should have gone out of business. They had achieved their aims, what more could they want? They stayed in business and became a victim of their own success. They lost the high moral ground. Corruption and greed set in. They milked the race card for all it was worth. They became what they had opposed for their first sixty years.

It is the same with the Black Caucus. They scream at Whitey, run down to Havana to make the obligatory obeisances to Fidel, and vote the Socialist line with a fidelity that would have brought tears to the eyes of David Bronstein. And through it all resonates the cry, "Affirmative action today, affirmative action tomorrow, affirmative action forever!" And what have they accomplished save for filling the prison system to capacity and the detention room at PS 101 with overage dropouts?

Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, maintains there are more African-Americans in jail today then there were in bondage in 1850. Who is to blame? It is not Jeff Davis or Bull Connor or George Wallace. It is the NAACP, the Black Caucus, the Democratic Party and the Liberal-Progressive media aided and abetted by an educational establishment determined to turn Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn into everything that made Goering and Goebbels the scourge of Europe in the 1930s and the Founding Fathers into the selfish cowards William Lloyd Garrison had accused them of being in 1860.

Instead of holding African-Americans to the same standards as other Americans the Democratic Party has made excuses for them and has blamed their failures on Whitey. After forty years of affirmative action and government programs the result has been disastrous; prison cells are full, classrooms are empty. There have been some successes, mostly in sports and entertainment. There were more successful black businessmen in the 1930s than in the 21st Century.

The large numbers of Irish and German immigrants that poured into the United States in the 1840s and 1850s were treated no better than today's immigrants. If either of those groups had been given four decades of affirmative action and government handouts either one would have been running the country at the end of that period.

The reason the Democrats have been warring on the white heterosexual Christian male is because he is the only person they cannot control. There is nothing they can give him- the Trumps and the Waltons and the John Waynes and Ronnie Reagans-to lure him away from his enthrallment with capitalism and free enterprise. He will not listen to reason. He must be destroyed or reduced to slavery.

The white heterosexual Christian male, like the Qur'an's non-Muslim People of the Book-the ancient Christians and the Jews-must be made to pay the jizya (the tribute tax) and to acknowledge himself subdued and brought low. Ron Pauls will no longer be tolerated in the land of freedom and equality.

But things change and with large numbers of Muslim immigrants filling Saudi built mosques from New York to San Diego the Liberal-progressive machine was forced to make a decision. What could easily become a significant minority group could not be allowed to fall into the hands of the enemy-not that it ever would. But to lure this new group into its culturally diverse coalition it would have to double-cross one of its most tried and true minorities. It would have to throw somebody under the bus. Joseph Lieberman was one of the first to see the coming holocaust. The Jew would have to go.

Anti-Semitism is now a fact of life on the American college campus and in the US Congress and in the Obama administration. The clowns in the media-MSNBC and Rosie O'Donnell to name a few-have signed on as Allah's running dogs. Brainwashed in a Madrassas, the President is more confused than Jimmy Carter ever was. (Yaser Arafat had to kiss Jimmy on the cheek to get what he wanted. Obama believes the Muslim Brotherhood is a charitable organization)

Like Dr. Faustus the Liberal-progressives have made a deal with the devil. Perhaps they think they can control a Caliphate, an Islamic America should it come to that. After all, the Saudi ruling family is as corrupt and as dissolute as any ruling class has ever been. They have slaves-many slaves-one perhaps for each household chore. They rape, disabuse and murder these poor creatures. So what if they are mostly women. It was time Sarah Palin and Michelle Malkin learned their manners.

Besides if Islam should gain the ascendancy in America, then the Liberal-progressives will be in the proper place at the right time to provide the new rulers-who will be little more than figureheads anyway-with what they cannot provide for themselves, the wherewithal to run things. The Liberal-progressive knows how to manage money, how to administer large armies. He knows how to make welfare checks arrive on time and he can keep guns out of the hands of malcontents. He can create the Marxist Nirvana that in the end is not much different from Islam. With Bill Maher running things each true believer can have 72 virgins on earth instead of having to wait till he gets to Paradise. But Maher better not let the Imams know what he is up to. He had better keep it between himself and Hugh Heffner.

Of course, Diogenes will still be looking for the moderate Muslim and the Sunni and the Shia will still be at each other's throats. There will be fewer church bombings because there will be fewer churches.

The alliance between the left and Islam appears to have been sanctioned by the Devil and brokered in Hell. Stalin got a better deal with Hitler in 1939. It is silly to think the Liberal-progressives will make any better use of their time or fare any better than Russia. After all Stalin had the US to pull his butt out of the fire-Obama and his legions of community organizers will have no one.

Qur'an 5:77 "Say (Muhammad) "People of the Book, do not overstep the bounds in your religion, or follow the people who erred and led many astray. Cursed are the unbelievers among the Children of Israel by David and Jesus...They do vile things, allying themselves with the infidels so that Allah's indignation is upon them and in torment they will suffer for all eternity.'"

Muslims do not make good allies.



Dr. Naim Ateek

The suicide bomber's best friend

Anglican dhimmi in charge of mass surrender

He's not Gandhi; he's not Martin Luther King. He would look silly in a diaper or on a bed of nails or in Mission in the Bowery. No one would mistake him for the late Pope John Paul. As far as anyone knows he is not an associate of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton-good points. He has never fasted ‘unto death;' he has never made an ‘I have a dream' speech though he does dream-or maybe hallucinate is a better word to describe what he does. He is not a Parson Brownlow (a Unionist from East Tennessee during the American Civil War); he is not a Father Mulcahy (M.A.S.H.) He is an anti-Zionist-that's what anti-Semites call themselves these days-and he will do anything he can to help achieve peace in the Middle East, including, if necessary, the destruction of Israel. He in Naim Ateek, director of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center; Ph. D. San Francisco Theological Seminary; former canon of St. George's Cathedral, Jerusalem. He's a great example of why religion should be left to laymen and not to theologians.

The Episcopal Church of the United States (ECUSA), apparently not having embarrassed itself enough over the last fifty years with one senseless surrender to modernity after another, will present its prestigious Peace and Justice award to Ateek in the near future. It will look good in the old trophy case along side the cross and the crescent. Ateek is not an amateur in the peace-mongering business. He was honored a while back by the Episcopal Peace Fellowship for his reconciliation work in the Middle East. Blessed are the peacemakers. (Grant and Sherman were peacemakers and so were Patton and Eisenhower but ECUSA does not recognize such efforts)

"So long as we are blessed by Christ, we fear nothing,' says Ateek. A fine source of comfort when getting on an Israeli bus five seconds before a suicide bomber or when stepping into a pizza parlor for a cheese and anchovies and getting broken glass and ball bearings instead. Maybe one has to be an Anglican.

Ateek is an Arab, a Christian, a Palestinian and a citizen of Israel. That's an awful lot for one man. It could be confusing and it there is anything Ateek is, it's confused.  He could also be called a turncoat and an ingrate. But mostly, he is a liberation theologian; he has never met a terrorist he hasn't liked.

This is Ateek on Suicide Bombing from a Palestinian perspective:

"These young people were not born 'terrorists.' No one is born a terrorist. They were born in the image and likeness of God. They were born human beings with love of life and freedom. All of them, with no exception, were born under the Israeli military occupation. The only Jews they knew were Israeli soldiers carrying guns and dehumanizing them. It was in the crucible of the occupation that they were shaped and formed. And if Israel labels them as terrorists, they are, after all the products of its own making."

Ateek errs. These young people were not born in the image and likeness of Allah-for a Muslim to say so would be heresy. Allah is unknowable; Allah is unapproachable. Ateek has cross-pollinated his religions-a mega-mistake for a theologian.

There is no love of life and freedom in Islam. Life is a grinding misery; freedom does not exist in the Muslim world. Islam means submission; the reward comes later-the 200 acres of swampland in Florida.

The Palestinians were not driven out of Israel; they fled at the urgings of the Arab countries. They have received hundreds of millions of dollars-if not billions-from the Saudis and the spineless Western European democracies. If they were dehumanized by anybody, it was by Yasser Arafat, Fatah, Hamas and the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. They are not the product of Israel; they are a product of Islam.

Ateek recommends divestment as the way to bring Israel to its knees. He has accused the Jews of murdering Christ. He has compared Israel's treatment of the Palestinians to the Crucifixion of Christ. It's a nice image for a creative writing class but as religion it is closer to blasphemy than to the Sermon on the Mount. And this guy is a what-an Episcopalian? It there was one church George Costanza would never have joined-not for Marisa Tome, not for Britney Spears, not to keep his mother out of Hell-it would have been the Anglican.

ECUSA is on its way to a theological disaster. If they think they can survive in the 21st Century by surrendering to the primal Islamic world of the 6th Century; by making grand concessions to the Imams and Mad Mullahs, they are mistaken. They will be the first to be ‘et by the theological dinosaur and Mohammed will pick his teeth with their bones. They should stick to ordaining women and gays as priest and leave men's work to men.



Rowan Williams

A Common Word for the Common Good

How did this guy get to be an Archbishop? Sure, he's got a beard and he looks religious but so does Muqtada al-Sadr. He knows how to spell ecumenical and a lot of other words people just as religious as he is and a lot less political don't give a damn about-people who believe in God and let it go at that. He is Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, and therein the tale lies.

Williams writes poetry, nothing on the order of The Wreck of the Hesperus or Casey at the Bat or There was once a lady from Worcester, but he gets published. What he needs to make it big is a letter to the Thessalonians. A Common Word for the Common Good just won't do.

Williams has an opinion on everything. He calls teaching creationism in school a ‘category mistake.' Allowing God to compete with Darwin does not enhance the Doctrine of Creation; it reduces it he says. He prefers the church to be ‘welcoming' rather than ‘inclusive.' Is that too subtle? Freemasonry may be incompatible with Christianity. That is interesting but boring. He opposes almost everything the United States has ever done and many things he imagines it may have done and may do in the future. And he is not afraid of Sharia. He is either a very brave man or an inconsequential fool. "Certain provisions of Sharia are already recognized in our society and under our law," he has said.

With Anglican Bishops from all over the world gathering in the UK to determine the fate of Anglicanism for the next hundred years, Williams sent a conciliatory letter to Islamic leaders calling for an alliance between the two faiths for the common good. The common good-was that a ‘category mistake?' It's best not to be too inclusive right off the bat. An angel would have wanted to know what the jizya would be before meeting with these folks. But with the bit in his mouth, Williams could not be restrained. "Christian Doctrine is offensive to Muslims," he said.

It's too bad he wasn't on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Ed McMahon could have asked, "What Christian Doctrine it that, Rowan?"

And Rowan would have said it was the Christian belief in the Trinity-the Father, Son and Holy Ghost that "is difficult, sometimes offensive to Muslims."

"How offensive is that, Rowan?" McMahon would have chuckled.

Yes, how offensive is that? But Carson is dead and Williams is pursuing the common good to the exclusion of all else. One must go to the Muslim Holy Book for the answer. How about it, Ed? Sure, as long as it doesn't get in the way of the commercial.

Qur'an 5:73 "They are surely disbelievers who blaspheme and say: God is one of three in the Trinity for there is no Ilah (God), except One, Allah. If they desist not from saying this (blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall them-the disbelievers will suffer a painful doom."

Blasphemy! Grievous penalty! It would seem Islam was greatly offended.

It is not nice to offend people. Hitler was offended by International Jewry...Stalin was offended by the kulaks...Mao was offended by 30 million Chinese...Mohammed was offended by the Banu Quraza. They became as angry as bears. They threatened everybody with a painful doom. But we are just as bad insists Williams. "Christianity has been promoted at the point of the sword and legally supported by extreme sanctions," he says.

So Richard the Lion-Heart got carried away back in the 10th Century! Won't they ever forgive him? But he's been dead for ages and in the years since his heirs have saved billions of people from disease and starvation. Doesn't that count for anything? Not if you are Rowan Williams. The sins of the father are visited upon his children. But what of Islam-the other partner in the common good?

Dateline Islamabad: District Judge Mian Muhammad Naeem recently ruled that two Christian sisters, Saba, 13, and Anila, 10, kidnapped last June while visiting friends in Chowk Munda in the province of Punjab, had converted to Islam in a legitimate manner and could not be returned to their family of origin. The judge also ruled their marriages to their kidnappers were legal. It is difficult to see any ‘common good' in this. Nor is this an isolated incident. Christian children are frequently kidnapped by Muslims and forcibly converted to Islam.

In Arhus, Denmark, Arab and Somali immigrants have finally driven the Greenlanders-people of Inuit extraction-out of their homes in Gjellerup after years of harassment, intimidation, violence and threats of violence. This has been replicated in Kosovo where Muslims have been systematically driving Christians from their homes and destroying their churches.

In Brussels, Belgium, police took seventeen women from a luxury hotel on allegations an Arab Royal Family was using them as slaves. The women were ‘servants' of the widow of a senior royal figure from the Untied Arab Emirates who was renting an entire floor. Their passports had been taken away from them upon arrival in Belgium and they had not been allowed to leave the hotel. The woman that did Jeff Davis's laundry had more options.

Slavery has always been a part of Islam. Thousands of Christian and animist children have been sold into servitude by the Muslim government of Sudan, a country that continues to thumb its nose at the United Nations while engaged in a genocidal campaign against its own black Muslim population.

Honor killing and female genital circumcision have become part of Islam. It is not a woman's world. In European countries with even modest increases in Muslim immigration, rape statistics have been doubled and tripled because of assaults by Muslim youths on Christian girls. Jack the Ripper would not feel alone. Darth Vader would shake his head in wonder and decide to bypass this dark and scary planet.

In the News column at appeared the following snippets: Hindu Child Beaten by Muslim Mob over Qur'an incident; Iran to Hang Woman for Alleged crime at Age 13; Qaddafi's Son Jailed in Switzerland for Beating Maids. Qaddafi's Son! It is nurture or Islam?

Muslims have committed 11.468 terrorist acts since 9/11.

In Henrietta, New York, Waheed Allah Mohammad took it upon himself to kill his younger sister, Fauzia, because she had become a "bad Muslim girl."  She was going to clubs, dressing immodestly and was planning to move to New York. So he stabbed her, Fortunately, she survived and Waheed has been charged with attempted murder. The Saints be preserved! Why is it so few Muslim men reach adulthood in their relations with women and non-Muslims?

Williams titled his Opus A Common Word for the Common Good. No doubt, Williams is a well-meaning man-so was Neville Chamberlain. By a faint stretch of the imagination one could have supposed there was a common good between Hitler and International Jewry. Then comes the Holocaust. What is important is not the Common Good in Islam but the Uncommon Bad and as long as the vast majority of 1.3 billion Muslims do little or nothing to eradicate it no Common Good will be attained between them and the dhimmis except surrender on the part of the latter.

So how much jizya do you think will be equitable, Mr. Archbishop?


Brain For Brain--A Perfect Match



The ghost of Daniel Patrick Moynahan shook his head sadly. “You heard his speech, Doctor Frankenstein,” he said. “Isn’t there something you can do for him?

The Doctor didn’t answer immediately and Moynahan waited patiently, brushing the cobwebs away from the side of his face. After what seemed an eternity but was actually only five or six minutes, Doctor Frankenstein leaned across his desk, his angular face shrouded in the shadows cast by a solitary flickering candle. Yes—he had heard the speech…a sad speech…a bad speech…a really terribly horribly bad speech…one of many from the same source. But this was politics. And the doctor did not like politics. Who knew when a castle might explode or when a dam might burst or when a bolt of lightning might shrive the wrong skull?   A scalpel might slip... The thought of Pat Buchanan and his hoi polloi chasing him across a petrified, moon-drenched noir-landscape with pine torches and pitchforks and scythes was, to say the least, innervating—exciting, but innervating.


The ghost cleared his throat. “He said the Republican Party was pretty much a white Christian party; he said Tom DeLay should be in jail; he said Republicans never made an honest living in their lives…No matter how true that might be he should never have said it.”

Frankenstein sighed. “Couldn’t Bill Frist take care of this?” he asked. “He’s a doctor.”

“Senator Frist is a heart and lung man,” explained the ghost. “Only you have the necessary expertise for something of this magnitude; only you know how to connect the electrodes; only you know where to go in Pennsylvania to get the precious metal that makes the electrodes combastasize.”

“That’s Transylvania,” corrected Frankenstein.

“You must save the Democratic Party, Doctor Frankenstein,” begged the ghost. “You must save it from extinction; you must save it from itself; you must save the two-party system.”

“I’m afraid you are expecting too much,” said Frankenstein. Clasping his hands in front of his face, he peered over the tips of his fingers at the ghost of Daniel Patrick Moynahan. He had no choice but to drive a hard bargain.  “Will you see to it that my electricity is turned on and that my subscription to Junior Science Quarterly is renewed?”

“Consider it done,” promised Moynahan,

“Then it is agreed,” said Frankenstein.

The Senator, always a courtly man, bowed and left, dragging a train of cobwebs behind him.

For several minutes the good doctor sat starring at the flickering candle. Combastasize? Was that what they called it? He hadn’t known. He would have to write that down somewhere…Perhaps things would turn out better this time. It would be nice to get back into the old routine. Crocheting doilies for lawn chairs, no matter how exhilarating, was no substitute for sewing stitches in a human skull. And he had all those electrodes lying around doing nothing…time to do some… combastasizing. It would mean a ridiculously high electricity bill and he had no way of paying it, but maybe everything would end in the usual explosion and he would be relieved of that worry.

He walked to the door, brushed aside the cobwebs, flung it open. “Ygor!” he called.                      

“Right here, master,” croaked the hunchback. As usual, Ygor was standing behind the good doctor.

“Ygor,” announced Frankenstein, “I’m going to need a brain. See if you can procure a specimen of said item that will be a match for the cranial capacity of the man in this picture.”

Ygor studied the photo. “I know this man!” he said. “He plays cards every Tuesday with Jimmy Hoffa.”

Frankenstein sighed. Good help was hard to get it this line of business. He must call the Howard-Fine-Howard Employment Agency first thing in the morning. But back to business…“No, Ygor,” he said patiently. “This man does not play cards with Jimmy Hoffa. This man has never played cards with Jimmy Hoffa. This man is Howard Dean. He plays cards with Michael Moore…Now I want you to get a brain that will be compatible with his, by that I mean one that will fit in his skull. And I want a good brain. Do not bring me something that was hanging from a gibbet—understand?

“Oh, I will bring you a good brain,” promised Ygor. “You will see. And it will be a perfect fit…yes, a perfect fit.”

“And don’t go to Iraq,” warned Frankenstein. “You will find numerous good unused brains right here in Washington, DC.”

But Ygor was already gone.

Frankenstein sighed. Now, let’s see—what comes next? It had been so long…so very, very long. Ah, yes—he would need Mr. Dean. No sense in sending Ygor for a brain if he had no place to put it. He looked at the picture in his hand—Howard Dean. Ah, yes, he reached for the phone. “Get me the Asp,” he said.

In seconds the Asp was on the line.

“Hello, dear Asp,” said the good doctor. “ Frankenstein here. Sorry to hear about Daddy Warbucks. How is Punjab taking it…I see—It was a shock here too. But I suppose Annie is old enough to take care of herself. She has all those new friends. How is Mr. Hefner doing? Wouldn’t want anything to happen to him…I see. Look—I got a job for you and Punjab…That’s right—for you and Punjab. I would send Ygor but he’s out looking for a brain and he hasn’t been quite right since that last hanging. There are times when he thinks he’s Marty Feldman…Now, listen, I want you and Punjab to penetrate the Democratic Party Mausoleum in Washington, DC, and seize for me an individual named Howard Dean and bring him to the mountain scholss…What’s that? You know Howard Dean? He plays cards every Tuesday with Jimmy Hoffa? You must be mistaken. Jimmy Hoffa is dead…what’s that? You will bring Hoffa too? No, no, I don’t want Hoffa! Don’t you dare bring him to the scholss! I only want Howard Dean!  You bring Dean here and we’ll work something out…Okay?”

The doctor hung up. Oh, for the good old days. How simple things had been, just him and the hunchback, no AMA to ask embarrassing questions, no meteorologists to consult about weather conditions, no expensive malpractice insurances to purchase…and the price of surgical thread these days was mind-boggling. Ah…but he must get the laboratory ready.


And there in the mountain schloss, amidst the roar of a thousand bowling balls charging across a leaden sky, pierced by jagged streaks of lightning and showers of cosmic sparks, surrounded by fin de siecle telemetry and oscillators and Bunsen burners, the deed was done.

Doctor Frankenstein wiped the sweat from his brow. It had been touch and go for a minute; but, at last, Howard Dean had a new brain. He glanced at the hunchback. “You did good, Ygor,” he said. “You did good. Now, let us wake the patient and see if he curses the President.” Yes, it was time for the acid test.

Ygor was ready. He rolled the giant-sized campaign poster of George W. Bush to the side of the operating table.

Howard Dean opened his eyes, looked slowly from side to side. Then he saw the giant poster of the President. “What’s that Nazi doing in here?” he screeched.

Doctor Frankenstein was stunned. “Vas iss loss?” he cried. “He’s still Howard Dean? How can that be? He has a new brain!”

“What are you talking about, you stupid Republican quack?’ growled the man on the operating table. “I’m not Howard Dean. Do I look like Howard Dean? I’m Dennis Kucinich…Hey, are you a registered voter? Are you in favor of the Woolsey Amendment? You want to trade votes? Know any hot young babes? Single, preferably…Say no to new oil refineries; say no to oil drilling in the Great Lakes; say no to oil drilling in Alaska…Do you know the words to God Bless America? How about Yankee Doodle Dandy? Care to join me in a few patriotic arias? GOD BLESS AMERICA…And they say I’m not patriotic…Hey, I thought I told you to get that Nazi out of here?”

“And he never shuts up either,” said the Asp.

“He was the original model for the Chatty Kathy doll, sahib,” rumbled Punjab.

“Dennis Kucinich…Dennis Kucinich…” mumbled an unbelieving Frankenstein. He glared at Ygor. “This is another fine mess you’ve gotten me into!”

“But it’s a perfect match, master,” whined Ygor. “You said you wanted a perfect match and I got you a perfect match.”

Frankenstein sighed morosely. “This means Dennis Kucinich is out there somewhere wandering around without a brain in his head.”

“It could have been worse, Doctor; it could have been somebody else,” said the Asp. “At least with Kucinich it will be months before anybody realizes his brain is missing.”
