We can you you mumble, but isn't this crazy fellow a liberal? Sure, he's posing as a conservative for laughs and a fat paycheck, but how could he? Colbert is ACTUALLY, YES, ACTUALLY poking fun at Islam (and the conservatives who fear them), even though he is a liberal, which proves how utterly insightful and brave a liberal he truly is. Give him credit. He got it right, even if he thinks it's all a joke. And yes, while I do like to watch his show, what does that make me? A label licker! Ha!
Around the globe we find that many courageous men and women of knowledge and inspiration are beginning to speak out against what too many are willing to ignore or cover up. Below is a segment of a speech by Ibn Warraq:
"The root cause of Islamic fundamentalism is Islam. What on earth has American foreign policy got to do with the stoning to death of a woman for adultery in Nigeria? It has every thing to do with Islam, and Islamic Law. The theory and practice of JihadBin Laden’s foreign policywas not concocted in the Pentagon, it is directly derived from the Koran and Hadith, Islamic Tradition. But Western Liberals find it hard to admit or accept or believe this. The trouble with Western Liberals is that they are nice; they are pathologically nice, terminally nice.
They think everyone thinks like them, they think all people including the Islamic fundamentalists desire the same things, have the same goals in life. For liberals, the terrorists are but frustrated angels forever thwarted by the Great Anarch, the Great Satan, the USA".
From the Muslim Brotherhood (in 1991):
"The process of settlement [of Islam in the United States] is a "Civilization-Jihadist" process with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that all their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" their miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who choose to slack."
But here at the Scenewash Project's Bellicose Augur, just to show you how radically engaged with the real matters of truth we can be, here's another hard tact by the always persuasive Hugh Fitzgerald:
There is plenty of blame to go around, and foolishness everywhere you look. If you insist on maintaining at this website that is all the fault of "liberals" then you must be asked to look at such people as Dinesh "Family-Values-Through-Higher-Lecture-Fees" D'Souza, or the terminally confused Glenn Beck, or any number of Bush loyalists who keep parroting this crap about the "forward strategy of freedom" in Iraq that ignores what "democracy" in a Muslim country means (always, more Islam), and that the only constraints on Islam or limits on Muslims have been those imposed either by a colonial power (as in the Dutch East Indies, or in India under the British) or by such enlightened despots as Mohammad V, Habib Bourguiba, the Shah of Iran and, most systematically and consciously, Ataturk.
Two things here:
Glenn Beck closes the first segment of "EXPOSED: The Perfect Day" with the following statement:
"As a personal note, this series has put me in the hardest ethical position I think I've been in, in thirty years of broadcasting. In the end, I came down that the information we have is power. There are things that you need to know that you're not being told. We're not the NYT. We're trying to save lives, not expose anything our government does not want exposed."
But earlier in the program when Glenn Beck asked his guest Brad Thor why they would do these unspeakable things (re: Beslan style attack in US) Thor responds:
"They want to force our hand. They want to create something so horrible that we will lose control of our reaction. We will be lynching Muslim people in the streets and burning mosques. They want to reduce us to animals like them so that they can get the Islamic world behind them and finally get them the holy war that they want kicked off and ignited."
Earlier this week, officials in Dearborn, MI, deliberately withheld information about Hussein Zorkot, who had been arrested with a loaded AK-47, wearing all black and camouflage paint on his facebecause they were afraid of “stirring anti-Muslim sentiments” and “fanning the flames of terrorism.” The FBI is notorious for issuing "not related to terror" statements upon arrival at the scene of latest qu'ran inspired atrocity prior to even a hint of an investigation. Obviously, these disconnects are part of an official concerted but fraying effort to avoid the ultimate confrontationwhich cannot be held off indefinitely.
How many of our citizens are considered disposable? Apparently, four airplanes and three buildings on 9/11 didn't prove enough.
