The War On Christmas

I haven’t been shopping much this year until today. I had several things on my list, so off I went store shopping on dark cloudy grey Cyber Monday. I figured shopping the stores would be safer than buying online and subjecting myself to hacking.

My first stop was at Alsip Nursery. I haven’t been there since June. Usually, they are filled to capacity with Christmas stuff. Don’t get me wrong, they still have quite a selection of decorations and trees, but I estimate they have about a third of past years. I wanted some funky globes to hang on my tree. Last year they had really wild colors that appealed to me, this year nothing. They did feature a short section of giant balls of traditional colors.  If I hung one of those on my tree it would fall over. The usual aisles of Christmas tree ornaments were not there. I failed to buy anything but bird seed.

My next stop was Home Depot. There, the selection of ornaments was either all sold out or very small. I did, however find some globes in the colors I wanted. I bought them.

I parked at the local super market and it began raining as I walked to the store. I flew through the aisles picking up fruit, dairy, meat, vitamins, and then to the Christmas card section. I needed to buy one card for our care-taker. She wanted a non-religious card to send to friends in Europe. “Something with flowers,” she told me; I visioned Poinsettia. Both Hallmark and American Greetings were on display. They had cards for mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandsons, grandparents, etc, but a very limited selection of general greetings. What struck me funny was the lack of anything portraying Christ, Santa, Rudolph, Angels, Shepherds, civilized Arab kings on camels, poinsettias, stars, or decorated trees. They were replaced by highly stylized versions of junk. The wishes inside were very generic and blasé.

What happened to “When you care enough to send the very best?” I say they no longer care for Christmas. They forgot that Jesus is the reason for the season just like all the rest of the World. I guess little kids no longer believe in Santa Claus or Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer either. I wonder if next year I’ll find ISIS warriors with dynamite vests and holding RPG’s on my cards, or worse yet the same warrior holding a severed head by the hair.

I stood outside under the canopy for a moment waiting for the rain to subside. Visions of the debate to take the umbrella, or not, streamed through my mind. Regrettably, the pansy me lost the argument to the macho me, and the umbrella stayed in the car. The rain seemed to slow a bit so I made a run for it pushing my cart to the car(picture a 78 year old guy running). By the time I unloaded and reloaded, my Levis were soaking to the knees with icy cold dampness.

Next stop was Walgreen’s for a look at their card selection. I found the same result, but I picked a simple white and baby-blue card with a snow-scene to satisfy the request.

From this point on, when I care to send the very best I will make it myself. I sure as hell will not spend five bucks to buy an atheist designed greeting card to send to my friends who still celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Here are examples of real Christmas cards:

A Racist Loves This Man

I have been dubbed a racist by Liberals, but for some reason I still love Allen West. I became acquainted with him in his run for Congress a few years ago. Liberals also call him a racist. Why? Because he doesn’t live and die for the crap that liberals feed blacks. He doesn’t believe that libs own him. Blacks disown him because he is considered to be a House Nigger. West doesn’t follow the PC bull spewed by Sharpton and Jackson. Col. Allen West always speaks intelligently with great logic in his arguments. He makes sense, and in my eyes he is a hero.

Message from a non-oppressed black man to Colin Kaepernick…

By Allen West August 28, 2016

Allen Bernard West (born February 7, 1961)[1] is an American political commentator, former member of the United States House of Representatives,
and retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel.
If there’s one thing I live for, it’s football season, especially college. Saturday night I was enjoying a fantastic game
between Charleston Southern University and North Dakota State University. The game went into overtime and ended with the Bison of NDSU winning 24-17. However, as I watched this thrilling game, it was an item on the ESPN news ticker that disturbed me — to which
I see a need to respond to this “teachable moment.”

As we reported yesterday, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in Friday’s pre-season game against Green Bay because he was protesting “black oppression” in the United States. The Niners went on to lose.
The NFL issued a statement that said players are encouraged but not required to stand for the national anthem. Hmm, this is
the same NFL that refused to allow the Dallas Cowboys to wear a helmet decal in honor of the fallen Dallas Police officers gunned down on Thursday July 7th.

This is the same NFL that said nothing when players from the St. Louis Cardinals displayed the false narrative symbol of “hands
up, dont shoot” — which we know didn’t happen. I find it rather interesting that the NFL has no issue disrespecting law enforcement officers but only “encourages” players to respect the symbol of our nation, the American flag, and our anthem, the Star Spangled
Banner.

However, I would recommend a simple scripture from the wise King Solomon for Mr. Kaepernick, Proverbs 17:28 (NIV): “Even fools
are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.”

Or, as the old folks down South would say, “best for a stupid person to keep their mouth shut and not open it and let everyone
know they are.”

Mr. Kaepernick, a biracial young man adopted and raised by white parents, claims America is oppressing blacks at a time when
we have a black, biracial president who was twice elected. We’ve had two black attorneys general and currently have a black secretary of homeland security, along with a black national security advisor. Here in Dallas our police chief, whom I know, is an outstanding
black leader. The officer in Milwaukee who shot the armed assailant after issuing an order to drop his weapon was black. Is Mr. Kaepernick following suit and cherry-picking what he terms “oppression?”

First of all, let me clarify to you sir, you are a multi-millionaire “one-percenter” just because you can throw a ball and
kiss your biceps. Men like Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Oscar Robertson, Ernie Davis, and Bernard King and Condredge Halloway of my alma mater were athletes who knew of oppression. You sir may certainly have the right to sit upon your “fourth
point of contact” when the National Anthem is played but never forget, you live in a nation that has provided you the privilege to have that right.

My story is one I wish to share. My dad was a corporal in the U.S. Army and served during World War II. He was born in 1920
and knew oppression. Yet, when he sat me down on the steps of our home, 651 Kennesaw Ave NE in Atlanta, he shared with me that there was no greater honor or privilege, than to wear the uniform of these United States. Perhaps that ‘s why his first and middle
sons, along with his grandson, are all U.S. combat veterans, just like Dad. Herman West Sr. was not a victim, and he raised men who would never allow anyone to suppress or oppress them. Perhaps you should stop trying to make victims and admonish people, black
people, to be victors — try it, and you may find that more satisfying than your insidious action and word vomiting.

If you want to know about oppression of blacks in America, past and present, how about you ask Rep. Nancy Pelosi of the San
Fran Bay Area about the policies that decimated the black family. Maybe you can cross the Bay over to Oakland and ask Rep. Barbara Lee about the 13 to15 million black babies killed since 1973, and ask her who is Margaret Sanger?

Or perhaps you can ask the two California senators, Boxer and Feinstein, about who doesn’t support better education opportunities
for black children in the inner cities — school choice, vouchers, charter schools, home schooling.

Perhaps you didn’t know Barack Obama was the one who cancelled the DC school voucher program for deserving young black children
— talk about oppression. Is that something you’re willing to do, or is it just too difficult?

You should look at who’s been controlling the communities and cities where blacks live. This isn’t not about what America
has done; it’s about what a certain group, a political party has done. And your somewhat backhanded comment towards our law enforcement officers — well, how many times San Francisco PD has protected you?

Here is the deal young man. My recommendation is that you apologize. Be a stand up fella and admit you made a very stupid
comment. Humbly state that you do realize how very special this country is and the opportunities it has afforded you — and many others.
You should take that stand and apologize to all of those who are currently serving in our Armed Forces and those veterans
who’ve been willing to make that last full measure of devotion. You see, when the National Anthem is played, it has a very special meaning to us — maybe you should take a hiatus and go over to Helmand Province in Afghanistan and spend a week and understand
why. Go over and throw a football with the men and women who enable you to earn those millions of dollars.

The American flag has a very touching meaning for those of us for whom it will drape our coffin — as it was for my Dad…and
it will be for me. That song defines who we are as a proud and exceptional people. This is a land where so many dream of coming to and earning the title of American. Your actions were shameful, disgusting, despicable and disrespectful.

You do have a right and a freedom of expression. But know, there are consequences to your ignorant action, which is what it
was.
When the National Anthem is played, I salute because I am a black man born and raised in the inner city afforded the opportunity for greatness in my own right. May you seek God’s forgiveness and find humility, because we, the people are not going to forget what you did and said.

Are We Too Busy To Care

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends’.
Martin Luther King

Hard to argue with this:

This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. The references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read.

The author is a man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come.’ My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.

‘We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is a religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace.
‘Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

‘The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide.
‘It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
‘The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous.

‘Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

‘China ‘s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

‘The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.

And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving?

‘History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt. Yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our Enemy if they don’t speak up. Like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them and the end of their world will have begun.

‘Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

‘Now Islamic prayers have been introduced in Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa, too, while the Lord’s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive? The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.

‘In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation’s shores.

‘In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of “no-go” zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.

‘As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts – the fanatics who threaten our way of life.’

‘Lastly, anyone who doubts that this issue is not serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.

Extend yourself a bit and send this on. Let us hope that thousands world-wide read this, think about it, and send it on before it’s too late, and we are silenced because we were silent.

Racism Gone Wild

The news today is unbelievable like it is most days, but today’s theme got to me. The first article is about the Gadsden Flag with the famous Don’t Tread on Me slogan.

 

2000px-Gadsden_flag.svg.pngThe second is an article about the government’s ad to drink milk. The author claims that it is racist because blacks don’t need to drink as much milk as whites. Somehow, black people have a body that compensates.

images-7.jpeg

I am so very tired of hearing about all these claims racism, Black Lives Matter, White Privilege, whites who want to be black, etc.. I have a proposal for the world. Let all of us racist white people climb onto a huge Death Star right out of Star Wars and leave planet earth completely to the people of colors. Let those who are crying racism have the planet and we will watch from the universe to see what happens.

deathstar_f2740178.png

I don’t think racism would disappear, it would only transfer to other groups. For instance, Asians might be pitted against Africans, or Mid-easterns against Hispanics. The difference is that these groups don’t have a long history of slavery. I am not saying they have never indulged in slavery because they have, and still do. What I’m saying is they don’t have a long history of suppressing people, setting them free, and then living with the ex-slaves bitchin’ about their treatment for the next thousand years.

My bet is that the Caucasian-less world would self implode after a very few short years. The Asians would rule the world, the Africans would all be converted to Islam and they would be cutting off the heads of Asians. The Hispanics would be warring with the blacks for turf on the Western half of the planet, but would rule because they would own the blacks with their drugs.

Inter-marriages would be forbidden as they always are within any ethnic group except they would truly be forbidden. It won’t be like it was on the planet when all the white people were here, all wanting to end racism by inter-marrying and self destructing the caucasian race. All the ethnics want to keep their blood lines pure so the inter-race marriages would be taboo. All races have the same line of thinking, keep our race pure. My mother had the same objective, she wanted her sons to marry nice Hungarian women. It didn’t matter that the woman I fell in love with was white, what mattered was she Hungarian. Had my fiancé been black or Asian my mother would have died on the spot. My mother was the norm, and  other nationalities practiced the same beliefs. They still do. Even American Indians wanted their women to marry braves from within their own tribe.

History will show us that keeping races and nationalities pure is a hard endeavor. The Spaniards came to the Americas without their women, and wound up creating a completely new race which we call Hispanic. The Norse intermingled with the Gauls, and so on, nationalities became diluted, but race commingling somehow remained minimal. I don’t believe there is any place on earth where race is completely neutral between people. It is hard for me to believe that a man who sees a lily white woman with a deep dark man does not have a tingle of animosity toward them. The opposite is also true relative to black women with white men.

Legislating against racism will not cure the problem either, nor will all the politically correct speech. I’m not sure what will make us color-blind and accepting of people outside our own color.

 

A Nice Idea

Black lives DO matter! Here’s proof.

afroboatpeople2.jpg

WHAT IF ALL BLACKS SUDDENLY LEFT AMERICA,
WHICH IS 13.3% OF THE TOTAL U.S.POPULATION:

The prison population would go down by 37%,

There would be 53% fewer gang members,

Obesity percentage would drop 11%,

Average IQ would go up 7.4 points, putting us 3rd in the world tied with
Japan,

Average SAT scores would go up almost 100 points,

Average ACT scores would go up 5.5 points.

AIDS & HIV would go down by 65%,

Chlamydia cases would go down 54%,

Gonorrhea would go down 69%,

Syphilis would go down 58%.

The average income for Americans would go up over $20,000 a year,

Amount of people in poverty would drop 34%,

Homelessness would go down 57%,

Welfare recipients would go down by 42%,

DEMOCRATS WOULD LOSE 76% OF THEIR VOTING BASE,

And many criminal defense attorneys would have to find another line of work!

Sad to say, Black lives do matter!

Borders Or No Borders?

100523-AZ-Border0018

What is a country without boundaries? Imagine if each of the States within the USA had no boundaries, and the United States of America was just America. Most likely we would have one set of laws, not fifty-one. I say fifty-one because now each State has laws, and the Federal Government also has laws. I suppose one could argue that having so many laws requires thousands if not millions of people to manage. If we look at Illinois we have a Governor, State Legislature, Supreme Court, State Police, etc. Breaking it down further we have counties and townships within counties, then villages, towns, and cities. Each of these entities have boundaries, and each defined area has government. When I think about it a country without internal boundaries and ruling governments puts us back to the time when only Indian tribes wandered North America, a place where there were no rules and everyone was happy. That is until one tribal chief decided his neighboring chief had better horses, and he would even things out with some horse redistribution.

President Obama and the leaders of the European Union are proponents of countries with out boundaries or borders. They promulgate free migration of tribes within the continent and the world. Think about that one, a world without any boundaries separating peoples and cultures. we would be free to happily room about anywhere we want without any fear of law enforcement coming down upon us asking embarrassing questions like “what are you doing here?” My guess is that peoples around the globe would live tribally, if for no other reason than to protect themselves from marauding wanderers. Personal weapons would be necessary to keep your way of life. We would be free! Or would we?

What I have omitted to this point is the King factor. In large expanses of territory inhabited by millions of indigenous people there arises one individual who by force rises to the top to rule. This happens because that one person decides he wants to live a better life than all those beneath him. The King appoints favorites to help him administer the throngs of ungoverned free people. Soon, the king and his advisors begin drawing regulations to control the free people. If there is no control the King does not get his way. The free people have no say in the rule nor any say in changing the rule.

Our government has become the ruling élite and they are surely regulating free people into non-thinking humanoids who live to serve the king. We have a president who believes his rule is above the law and Supreme court rulings are meaningless to his edicts. We have a House of Representatives who is our voice in government, but they are too preoccupied with re-election and personal gain to care about what the president decrees. In recent years they rubber stamp Presidential decrees without any debate or concern for the American people.

The European Union began as an idea to unify currencies and trade opportunities within member nations. The first thing they did was agree to open their borders to allow travel around Europe without unnecessary border guards checking  visas and passports. The unified currency allowed people to travel throughout the EU without concern about currency exchange rates, and the acceptance of different monies. At first it sounded good, but as the years passed the system evolved into more than just that. The ruling élite began regulating members. Slowly, the different cultures of Europe began to give in to the elites for the sake of harmony within the union. What the EU really wanted to do was to become   the United States of America. They encouraged immigration by spreading the doctrine of multiculturalism. That is where the great social experiment failed. Each member country became dotted with tribes of immigrants living in every member country. None of them learn to speak the language of the host nation, nor learn the host country customs and cultures. It is the opposite, The tribes expect the host to bend to the immigrant by speaking their language, bending to their dietary needs, their religious beliefs and so on. The European Union is dotted with these tribes across the continent. Slowly the tribes grow from tiny specks into dots, and eventually they will cover the host countries until  the hosts become the minority, and they lose their identity; they become slaves to the visitors.

The EU tries to be like the USA but fails miserably. There is no assimilation, why? There is no need for the immigrant to learn a new language. There is no single European culture to assimilate into. Immigrants do not migrate with the intention of becoming German or Dutch, Spanish, French, or British they migrate for two reasons, social programs, and to get away from war-torn areas. They have no intention of becoming German, French, Spanish, Italian, or any other nationality. In fact, the laws of many countries make becoming citizens extremely difficult.  They come to stay the same people they have always been, except in a new environment. The EU lacks an army to defend its people. They rely on the United Nations, and the United States to do the work. Immigrants have no opportunity to serve in the military as a way to show their patriotism to their new-found country.

Obama, his Administration, the Congress, the Supreme Court, and fifty percent of the country look to Europe as the Utopian model. What they don’t realize is that the American model is what the Europeans are struggling to emulate. We have the standard language, we have cultures which are regionally different yet nationally allegiant to a single Constitution. We have learned that having borders within borders is helpful in keeping peace without limiting personal freedom. We are a great nation of immigrants. In the beginning, immigration was wide open; get on a boat, and step into the country. As the country grows and labor opportunities slow down the need to control the flow of people coming in becomes necessary. Immigration laws were written to smooth the flow into the country to cut the chance for mass migrations that would be a disservice to the people coming here for opportunity. What we have done wrong in the USA is to stop enforcing the existing immigration laws. A very simple fix is to keep the existing laws but to increase the number of people we allow in every year. If we want to get fancy we can add a work permit to cover migrant workers entry to do seasonal work.

The freedoms we have  work against us. Organizations like LaRaza routinely promote disregard for the borders and control of immigration from Central America. They should be classified as subversives, and denied existence. The same hold true for Mosques and Muslim lobby groups like CAIR. Since Islam is a religion, and a political ideology it should be classified by law as one or the other. As it is, Islam can not co-exist with our Constitution. If it is a religion then we must treat it like any other religion. We must require that they pledge to follow our laws, and if they follow Sharia then they lose their right to stay in this country. Mosques that teach radicalism must be closed under the rule that radicalism is a political system and not a religious one. Political Correctness must be abandoned. We are an exceptional nation. That doesn’t mean people in other countries are not exceptional in education, or thought, it means our country is built on an idea that all men are created equal. We are made up of immigrants that have embraced that concept and love being here. If you can’t adjust to that simple rule the door is open for you to leave. Immigrants must understand history, and let go of the fact that once upon a time there were slaves in North America. There were a lot of things that happened many years ago, and that is no longer a reason to complain about your miserable life. Racial discrimination can not be eliminated over night. It will take many generations to even out the difference between races. Leaders like Obama who divide the country on racial issues have only served to retard any progress made by a hundred years.

America is an idea sought by all people in the world, even Europe. The problem is that America did not become exceptional over night. It was a process, combined with evolution. We can not expect to package the idea in a big box and send it to places around the world to become America upon opening. Our Founding fathers did not invent this system overnight. Their ancestors migrated to North America to flee persecution in Europe. They started their colonies with the background of law abiding countries in Europe beginning with the Magna Charta. Pilgrims modified those laws and practices to make things work for them on this soil. The Founders also had that background and the back ground of the great thinkers of Europe to learn from when they began the process to declare independence and to establish the country. It took another ten years of operation to realize they needed more change, and appointed a select group of men to write the Constitution. It is that document which has carried our proud nation forward, and will continue to carry us forward for centuries to come. What we don’t need are people who call themselves progressives to rewrite the rule book on how to run the greatest country in the world.

My last thought on borders is this. If we want to return to the caveman era let us erase every border in the world. If we want to move forward as a civilization let us draw the borders and build walls if necessary to control the flow of peoples from country to country. If we really want to move forward as a world, let us standardize on a language before we undertake the more complicated issue of government. It is my opinion that even if we get people speaking the same language in every country, it will be a thousand years before we all understand each other speaking the same. If you don’t believe me try listening to a speech in English given by someone from a non-english speaking country. Of course there are exceptions, but the average person from another country speaking English will be burdened with the dialect of his birth language.

Obama’s and Hillary’s New World Order will take a lot longer than eight years to evolve. Every time I hear of the New World Order I envision the Earth Senate convening in the science fiction movie Star Trek. It is a UN on steroids. It represents the people of planet Earth yet mysteriously they still don’t speak the same language and all need interpreters. It’s not going to work folks.

The Final Inspection

Drill_instructor_at_the_Officer_Candidate_School

Gunnery Sgt. Shawn D. Angell is a drill instructor at the Officer Candidate School aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va., dedicated to training, educating, evaluating and screening the many candidates who go through the course and turning them into Marine leaders.

By Sgt. Joshua Helterbran

The Final Inspection

The soldier stood and faced his God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as brightly as his brass

“Step foward now you soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek,
And to my church have you been true?”

The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
“No Lord, I guess I ain’t,
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can’t always be saints

“I’ve had to work most Sundays
And at times my talk was tough
And sometimes I’ve been violent
Because the streets were awfully rough”

But I never took a penny,
That was’nt mine to keep
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills just got to steep,

And I never passed a cry for help
Although, at times I shook with fear
And sometimes, God forgive
I’ve wept unmanly tears

I know I don’t deserve a place
Among the people here
That never wanted me around
Except to calm there fears

If you have a place for me here O’ Lord
It needn’t be so grand
I’ve never expected, or had so much
But if you don’t I’ll understand”

There was a silence all around the throne
Where the Saints had often trod
As this soldier waited quietly
For the judgment from his God

“Step foward now you soldier,
You’ve borne your
burdens well
Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,
You’ve done your time in Hell”

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia?

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
