An America Patriot Has Passed On A Legacy Worth Emulating

Of course Andrew Breitbart, an American patriot extraordinaire, is worthy of all the words, those of favor and those of disgust hurled at him as a political man with drawn digit in the sand, before and after his life ended so suddenly, unexpectedly, mysteriously, tragically, unspectacularly just after midnight last Thursday as he was walking near his home. He collapsed, and at 43, still a young man, he was gone.

We knew him through his untiring investigative journalism, his tough stances against the unhinged Left and against who and what he considered violent, seditious, determined enemies of the the state in many cases, but certainly enemies of the people, the people who still believe in constitutional loyalty, liberty, justice, courage, responsibility, and the American way. Protection from the government and the forces of the mob. But I'll step aside and let his friend, Robert Spencer share his version of Andrew Breitbart...

Andrew Breitbart & US Flag
Andrew Breitbart
AMONG THE MANY THINGS that made Andrew Breitbart a great man was that he was not playing defense. So many, many times I have been speaking at anti-jihad events and heard other speakers saying, "We are not racists, we are not bigots, we are not Islamophobes..." We have allowed the jihadists and Islamic supremacists, and their Leftist allies, to put us on the defensive. We're always apologizing, tacitly accepting their narrative and responding to them in the parameters they set up. Even worse, many even among the anti-jihadists eagerly throw their colleagues under the bus—those colleagues whom the Left and the Islamic supremacists have started to zero in on. They're the ones we should be standing up for the most resolutely, for they are drawing fire because they are effective.

Instead of bowing and scraping to the Islamic supremacists and feebly protesting that we're not really racists and hatemongers and all the other calumnies and canards they throw at us, we should be taking the fight to them, and standing up and saying, "You are fronting for the most oppressive ideology on the face of the earth. You are fronting for evil. You are carrying water and running interference for the denial of free speech, the denial of the freedom of conscience, the institutionalized oppression of women, the subjugation of non-Muslims, and worse. You're fronting for stonings, amputations, the murder of apostates, the treatment of women as possessions of men, the madness and senseless violence that we see in this furor over the Qur'an-burnings, and more. You shout us down on campuses and do everything you can to make sure we are not heard in the public square. And you call us fascists? You are the quintessence of fascism."

Russia's Own War On Terror

THE SUICIDE BOMBING which killed thirty-five travelers and injured over a hundred more at Moscow's bustling Domodedovo Airport in late January did more than temporarily bring air traffic in Russia to a standstill. The attack, the second major terror incident to hit the Russian capital in less than a year, laid bare the dirty little secret the Kremlin has worked diligently to hide from the world.

Nearly two decades into Russia's own version of the "war on terror," it is no longer possible to ignore the fact that the country is in the throes of a rising Islamist insurgency—or that the Russian government, which once promised a swift, decisive victory over "Wahhabism," increasingly seems to have little idea what to do about it.

Dudayev
Dzhokhar Dudayev
It was not always this way. Two decades ago, the threat posed by Islamic radicalism was still distant and ephemeral for most Russians. True, the sudden collapse of the U.S.S.R. had unleashed a wave of ethnic separatism on the territory of the former Soviet Union. Over the span of thirteen months, fifteen new countries, six of them majority-Muslim, emerged from the wreckage of the "evil empire." As a result, the aggregate number of Muslims within Russia proper actually decreased. And, after more than seven decades of officially-atheist Soviet rule, those Muslims that remained within the Russian Federation lacked a clear religious direction or sense of spiritual identity.

But if the growth of Islamic radicalism wasn't an immediate concern, a further fragmentation of the Russian state was. The corrosive example of independence on the part of the countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia ignited dreams of the same in many corners of the Russian Federation. This was particularly true in Russia's Caucasus republics—the majority-Muslim regions which abutted the newly-independent nations of Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia. These stirrings were given concrete voice by the November 1991 declaration of independence by Chechnya's nationalist leader, Dzhokhar Dudayev.

Five Insensitive Quotes (Don't Lose Your Head)

enslavement
Modest Islam (Enslavement?)
TODAY, EVEN AS THE CREEPING ISLAMIC SHA'RIA SERPENT continues to form its image, continues to feather its pernicious beds of disinformation, and continues to procreate its flesh and cultural fomentation along our shores and into every strategic outland once known as Western Civilization, we offer four "insensitive" memories from the Watchtower:

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" —Edmund Burke

America's constitution with its bill of rights our greatest asset against the evils of an aggressive power, foreign or domestic. However, we each must understand her strength of meaning, and fight with her not only in our hearts and minds, but we must be prepared when the clarion call comes for a more blood and guts resolve. We no longer live in peaceful times. We can no longer listen with pinched smiles to men and women who lie to us, and want only to enlist us in a fight our our natural affectations. We must no longer extend the hand of friendship to those whose only desire to is replace us, not respect us.

"Pointing out that Islam is violent, bigoted and misogynistic is not an act of violence. It is not a call for violence. It is a call for sanity. "—Daniel Greenfield

"Political Islam has annihilated every culture it has invaded or immigrated to by destroying the host culture."—Bill Warner

The West, preoccupied with pleasuring itself, is drunk on pride, arrogance, foolishness, profanity, licentiousness, greed, irony and godlessness. It embraces the folly of every powerful culture that has lost its way, its foundation, its resolve. Islam has destroyed far too many cultures and civilizations because the host country were deceived into believing that a peaceful coexistence is possible. Once gaining the demographic upper hand, Islam withdraws its shiny smiling self and out come the sharpened knives of aggression.

"A person who demonizes his culture and promotes the colonization of his country by other, even openly hostile peoples, is no longer considered a traitor, as he previously would have been. On the contrary, he is applauded by those in prominent positions in politics, academia and the mass media. The person who is treated as a traitor is anyone who shows any signs of loyalty to traditional nations that constitute hated rivals of enlightened universalism.—Fjordman

Distortion and loss of its native language as the voice of revolt signals the first paradigm in the sudden depreciation of a culture. Lingering patterns of cooperative appeal and uncooperative friction informing and testing competitive cultures, always the chess game of winning the imaginable begin to fade away. When one power stumbles, another is quick to seize its opportunity to improve its niche in the global dynamic.

"The truly and deliberately evil men are a very small minority; it is the appeaser who unleashes them on mankind; it is the appeaser’s intellectual abdication that invites them to take over. When a culture’s dominant trend is geared to irrationality, the thugs win over the appeasers. When intellectual leaders fail to foster the best in the mixed, unformed, vacillating character of people at large, the thugs are sure to bring out the worst. When the ablest men turn into cowards, the average men turn into brutes."—Ayn Rand

The religion of peace offers nothing but eternal war. The activists of peace are busy pushing nothing but disgust and dissent. Somewhere in all this surreptitious flash, there must be a reckoning power that can hold against the false claims of men who know little of true work, but who speak both for and against those who do, depending on the scowls of a misplaced allegiance...

The Gall Of Simplicity

WE FOUND THIS SHORT ENTRY FULL OF amazing clarity and insight. Don't forget to check out the author's blog:

I saw one of these suboids interviewed in a recent Panorama or Frontline about the death of Bin Laden. As he was talking about killing it was obvious that his pleasure centers were lit up like the macy's fireworks and he went into some kind of romantic, blissed out state while fondling his kalishnikov. It wasn't just a show of what they ignorantly consider strength. He had genuine romantic feelings for that weapon and the death it could bring.

Ten thousand years of human civilization has passed that guy and the rest of the Taliban Neolithics by. While our ancestors were building the first cities his were sacking them. While ancient traders were spreading wealth and culture between east and west his were raiding their trade convoys.

Even the kalashnikov he loves so intenesly is testiment to what the civilized world can produce yet he consciously choses to fight for the return of the stone age. The dystopia he longs for would be incapable of creating even one part of his beloved weapon.

This really is a conflict between civilization and barbarism.

And yet we discover other unabashed harbingers of clarity voicing outrage against what seems to be an inspired caricature of an American presidency:

The short-form BC released in 2008 was supposed to be the original "one and only". Now the MSM gives this illegal alien muslim marxist bi-sexual abortion loving Israel hating Kenyan-born punk from Chicago a "do over" with this second different-looking long form BC which is now supposed to be the original "one and only". Anybody who actually refers to this fake phoney piece of garbage as president needs to have their head examined!! He has dual citizenship alright; citizen of England AND Indonesia!! This old school pot-head needs to be cuffed and perp-walked out of the WH straight into Gitmo with his mooselim bro's. The fact that this punk said America was not a Christian nation but could be considered one of the largest muslim nations is grounds enough for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to relieve him of command as Commander-in-Chief.

The Poetry Of Dust To Dust, Osama Is Dead

Osama Bin Laden
Osama Bin Laden
THE CELEBRATION AND GENERAL REPORTAGE of Osama bin Laden is an American moment and an international swatch, because the bin Laden operatives murdered hundreds of Republicans, Democrats, Winsome Wingnuts, various Christians, Jews, Muslims and a conflagration of other travelers and players, all educated and dramatized for the Cause in different flavors and cultural contexts on that fateful date—September 11, 2001.

And it goes without saying that the Media Left's clownish bias is showing up once again with typical hubris and vitriol, while the Right, say WE THE PEOPLE, stays in their spirit-branded patriot's box, giving credit where credit is due—to the flesh and blood military, not the aloof, patently cold-blooded president, who typically fails not to deny himself a lion's share of the "strategery" which finally flushed out, then snuffed out the patriarch of al-Qaeda with a bullet in the head achieved over the body of a servile woman "the illustrious Islamic warrior" had grabbed in the heat of combat for protection.

But there are serious issues with the"official" version of this happy killing, subsequent burial, and speechmaker's spin that reek of typical Obama handling of American moments...

Yep, to have become one is to become one. Some say so many mysteries in the making, the faking, the forsaking of an (fill-in-the-blank) president...carnival barkers need not apply.

Bin Laden buried at sea? Junior needs to pony up with a few unarguable facts. Yes, I know that facts no longer exist, but let's be audacious here for a moment. Is the Donald now not off the front pages? Ah, the famous Clinton wag, it's the latest new dance craze (from the fink and folly think tanks of your nearest wink and wear all too weary political campus...

"My how big your teeth are!" exclaimed Little Red Riding Hood, now retro-fitted and color-matched to one of Henry Ford's shiny new Model-T, oops that's haraam, no crosses in Islam, to a burqa, one size fits all, while DEATH TO THE INFIDEL, belloweth the wolf in sheep's metal...

May we please insist upon the choice of congressman and retired Colonel Allen West for president, VP minimum? I see where the brains behind Obama is positioning General David "Don't Burn the Qu'ran, Somebody Might Get Hurt" Petraeus for successorship or at least floating him in torqued readiness to neutralize West, if something goes awry with the Obama campaign.

If accused, I'll just have to admit that despite the consequences of my acts, this is just the initial phase of those nasty thoughts I intuit behind all these latest White House maneuverers.

Hey Martha, where's that aluminum foil you saved from the lasagna last night. I need a greasy new metallic hat 'cos my last one was struck by lightening, leaving me these seven scabs I have now on my head, but I ain't done. Fact is, Martha dear, I'm just getting started.

Dust to dust, Osama is dead. End of poetic justice. Now, let's get down to the nuts and bolts of saving western civilization from dar al-Harb. We can start by abandoning the Middle East, and the Camp of Islam to fend for itself. Returning to America first, we must strengthen ourselves, right and left, right and wrong, hawks and doves for the real war which is churlishly creeping into our lands and our homes...

And I'm an optimist. Peace will follow. But I have a feeling the dark prince of butchery, mankind put into his proper place, once again, will not be neglected. We have all heard the false prophets of peace in the market who all promise—ALL IS FINE. Just move along, folks, all is fine.

Reminds me of a talking donkey.

Lord of the Flies Incarnate

Sharia Blood sport
Blood sport
SHARIAH OR ISLAMIC LAW IS A TACTIC OF DOMINATION which prescribes barbaric beheading, lashing, amputations, stoning, and other horrendous crimes against humanity for petty acts or pardonable choices by individuals in a civil society is "cruel and unusual punishment" and therefore already banned in the United States of America by the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution.

We know South Carolina has a bill in its senate written to ban shariah law in that state, and can only trust that all necessary means will be used to get the bill passed since it is apparent our federal government has chosen to fail us, focussed as it is on becoming the centerpiece of the new world order where America has fallen and become just another socialist state operating under an increasing Islamist sway.

So while we realize it will take a gaggle of attorneys, a fistful of judges, and big bags of juicy gold-plated promises placed neatly into the bank accounts of connivers everywhere to prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt, to call evil out by name, we sincerely trust that you will support this bill to ban Shariah law as being against not only our American heritage, but against the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Let's stamp this misery out wherever we find it. Shariah is not religion. It is LORD OF THE FLIES incarnate...

Breaking Free Of The Stupid Undergrounds

Arguing Against Groupthink
Arguing Against Groupthink
THIS IS, NEEDLESS TO SAY, NOT how one should approach a discussion over what is sure to be a difficult sell to those who already feel they know everything they need to know on a difficult topic, and instead presume you are just an idiot, a racist, and probably both.

In this photo, let's suppose we have a husband and wife, or perhaps two old friends, each professionals, a college professor and a bank executive, and let's agree it's not germane which job is whose. Woman or man, based only on what you see in the photo and what you already ascertain about the general culture, who do you think is the person more knowledgeable, who is concerned about a serious topic worthy of analysis?

Here's our profile. Based on what we know about how certain evidence breaks in this PC society, we presume the man to be the calm but vigilant anti-jihadist who prefers evidential persuasion leaving the woman to be a hardcore politically correct leftist claiming the higher moral ground, tooth and nail, certain of her superiority. If the roles were reversed, and it was she who was frightened of jihad, Islam, and its strategies for conquering the world, she would win no argument with this sort of display, even if this cowardly friend of hers is a wimpish hollow man of the politically correct variety, stoned on his own ignorance.

So read on...

FOLLOWING 9/11, FOLLOWING MADRID, FOLLOWING the London bombing, following Bali, in fact following the whole panoply of Muslim violence at that point, I listened and listened to political and media reaction.

Tiny minority. Religion of Peace. Rich Diversity. Untold wealth brought by immigration. Vibrant communities.

On and on the cliched excuses fell from establishment mouths, their voices united in a wholesale pass for what the rest of us saw as a religion intent on getting its way and killing as many possible in the process. Something was grossly askew. Something was missing. Why was our collective intelligence being so badly insulted by politically correct morons, parroting the same old fables?

Then the thought occurred. These people, wallowing in dire ignorance are merely talking heads and spewers of easily demolished platitudes. They do it because they all do it. It's the easy route. However, apart from what my eyes and ears told me about the current situation I was quite unaware of the history and true doctrine of Islam.

So off to Amazon and a few clicks later up it popped. Robert Spencer's Politically Incorrect guide to Islam and the Crusades. The cover alone gave the aura that this would be no half assed apologist's polemic so I bought it.

That was about five years ago, and what refreshment? What revelation?

Thus armed, my argument with friends either riled them mildly or aroused such anger that I realised something was not quite right. These were educated people. Lecturers, photographers, TV people, a couple of (largely unsuccesful) actors, senior managers plus of course the remoras and hangers on. One thing did unite them and that was the left.

My epiphany started at that point. Buoyed by the great introduction Robert's insight's offered, I bought more. And more. And despite all of this well researched truth they still didn't believe me. I was a racist and that was that.

For me that was when their bubble burst. All that came out was hot air and dogma. In other words the lies of self preening liberals, basking in self proclaimed liberality. And nothing more

They were [TS] Elliot's Hollow Men devoid of any individuality of thought and addicted to the groupthink which infests their brand of society.

A few years down the line I jettisoned the dross. If the unvarnished truth could not persuade them, why bother? I'd say this experience is quite informative. It obviously changed me. What was that thing about truth setting you free?

And all because of Robert's book...

Who are we to improve upon this piece of brilliant writing? What better critique of the often undulating process of sorting out the real from the unreal can we offer to those who will not heed a word of it, but will resort to vile slanders, misinformation, hyperbole, and logical fallacies to thwart our insistence on using the fullest measure of our intelligence, not merely a caricatured obedience to some counterfeit ideal?

A Jihad Watch commentator transcribes a personal but oh so familiar path to intellectual sanity when trying to figure out why what we must process day in and day out on nearly every subject pertaining to Islam when filtered by the mainstream media just doesn't meet the smell, much less the taste test. Leftism is a cult of wishful thinking, and is no longer a ridiculous clique, but is now the deep-rooted establishment.

The courage and resolve so many of us must muster in breaking free of ANY of the stupid undergrounds described by Paul Mann is no different than breaking free of the groupthink of this so-called religious or political cult known as Islam and its new best friends, the radical Left of the West.
