The short answer is No! When our Constitutional Rights are affronted by cowards that would capitulate to murderous savages, then they neither deserve security nor liberty. That is the case regarding the attacks against the American Freedom Defense Initiative in Garland Texas by Islamic terrorists. The event was about cartoons.
Luckily, there was an police officer there with superior marksmanship skills and thwarted what could have been a bloodbath. What happened afterwards was shocking.
The media blamed the attack on the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The group is organized by Pamela Geller. She runs the blog Atlas Shrugs and she is an activist fighting for free speech rights in America. The group has been responsible for fighting back against Islamic jihad terrorism around the world. By bringing awareness to the public what the media refuses to discuss, the slaughter of innocent people around the world by radical Islamic terrorists. It was about satirical cartoons and some believe that was being too provocative.
Never have I’ve seen such sympathy for intolerant Muslim trash. The Muslims were there to kill people, and the media is calling a Free Speech event a provocation. There has been numerous Islamic crimes around America: Ft. Hood shooter, Boston bombers, New Jersey beheading’s, Oklahoma grandmother beheaded, honor killing of teenage girls, and the list goes on and on. There is the media, blaming the victims and not the Islamic terrorists.
Megyn Kelly to Richard Fowler, “Do you hear what you are saying?” You’re asking people to give up their First Amendment right to free speech. At least there were some journalists that understand the meaning of Free Speech. Irregardless if anyone finds speech offensive, it is still protected speech. I was really surprised that some Fox News journalists took the side of the terrorists. Terrorism is not free speech.
Muslim clerics would find women in dresses and high heels as provocative, because they are not dress in hefty garbage bags. In Islamic countries, women dressed like Martha MacCallum would be stoned to death.
Via The Volokh Conspiracy: The University of Minnesota decided to host a panel on the Charlie Hebdo murders. After receiving complaints from Muslim students, the university’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action [EOAA] ordered staff to take down copies of the flyers, both from bulletin boards and from any university Web sites.
Luckily, the dean of the College of Liberal Arts, John Coleman, promptly reversed that order, and has also refused to go along with the EOAA’s request that he publicly condemn the use of the Muhammad image. Fortunately, it looks like the academics at the University of Minnesota, including the dean, understand the principle of Free Speech.
There doesn’t seem to be any issues with satire against other world religions. Christianity with crucifixes in jars of urine. Jews depicted in Muslim cartoons as monsters. Buddhist and Hindus illustrated in disparaging cartoons. However, you don’t see any of these religions committing murders in the name of their religion. Then again, Islam is not a religion, it is a cult of intolerance and slavery.
Leftist in America and Europe have coddled these Islamic extremists. Cowards will always capitulate to terror. Barry the Bullshitter (Obama), said that the prophet of Islam must not be slandered. Why not?
While Obama says nothing about the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East, Obama has plenty to say about racial tensions in this country, and he continues to fan the flames of racism. Obama seems more concerned about Islamic terrorists, than the safety of Americans. We have two Muslims in Congress that want Sharia law enforced over Constitutional Law. Leftist democrats are promoting a welfare state for votes.
The terrorists also say they have 71 fighters in 15 different states and they 23 have signed up already for missions like the failed Sunday attack in Garland, Texas.
What is this country doing about this threat? One of the dead terrorists was known by authorities, and yet he attempted to murder people. The terrorist only need to win once, and then people will ask, “how did this happen”. It’s because they let it happen.
The letter from the doctor’s office said. Well, sorta. The letter actually said that I was selected to participate in a 7 month pilot project to “Improve Individual and Community BMI (Body Mass Index). The idea is to shame people into loosing weight by asking patients to keep a record of their weight.
Didn’t I read someplace that BMI calculations are inaccurate, and it is a misleading measurement of a person’s fatness? Yes, of all places, NPR, in 2006, published an article called “Top 10 Reasons Why The BMI is Bogus”
It does more than embarrass a person, BMI has been used to publicly shame school children. Imagine what the child must feel like when they receive a letter from their school saying that they are too fat? Especially young girls that might be self conscience about their weight and image. What if they turn to either anorexia or bulimia? They could damage their health by trying to stay thin, and they could even kill themselves.
What about the athlete that has larger muscle mass versus the couch potato gamer that gets no exercise? The problem with BMI, and some adult logic, is that it is more about fat between the ears, than fat in the rears.
The NPR article goes on the say; “The BMI was introduced in the early 19th century by a Belgian named Lambert Adolphe Jacques Quetelet. He was a mathematician, not a physician. He produced the formula to give a quick and easy way to measure the degree of obesity of the general population to assist the government in allocating resources. In other words, it is a 200-year-old hack.”
But wait, we are also told that 1 in 5 children are hungry. That there are 50 million Americans that go to bed hungry every night. How can this be true? The poor have many choices available to them; SNAP benefits, EBT benefits, Free School lunches, Food Banks, religious charitable organizations, and many more State and Federal programs to help feed the poor and low income people.
Forbes attempts to explain: “Are One In Five American Children Hungry?”
Maybe people just wanna eat the food they like? When Food Tyrants like Michelle Obama and Michael Bloomberg decide to restrict your access to certain food, with the reasoning that, “we’re doing this for your own good“, you have to ask, who made them the food police?
In this day and age, we are lucky to live in such abundance. Walk into any grocery store and there will be in excess of 50,000 products to choose from. There are more choices now than there ever were before. However, there are some Food Nazis that will try and govern your choices by creating a false food crisis. They will try and ban foods based on what they perceive as not being healthy enough for you.
Remember when the Food Nazis tried to ban Foie Gras? A centuries old practice of feeding ducks to fatten their livers using boiled corn and fat. The mixture was then piped down the ducks throats filling their stomachs. Animal rights kooks claimed the practice was cruel and inhumane. Yet, domesticated ducks would gladly consume the food voluntarily. Ducks would stand in line waiting for the farmer to feed them. Food Nazis have always been trying to control what you can and cannot eat. Food Nazis sense of morality is always anti-human. The Food Nazis claim the world is over-populated and there are not enough resources to sustain the population. If Food Nazis had their way, people would have to be eliminated to save the planet.
These are the same people that believe in global warming and condemn you as a flat earther if you do not believe in their kooky causes. It’s always the humans fault for the weather changing.
Like I said earlier, it not so much about the body fat, but more about the fat between the extremists ears.
Whatever happened to I have the Right to Refuse Service? No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service!
Suppose someone came into your place of business and asked you to perform a service that violated your conscience. You refuse to perform that service and the customer sues you and your business for discrimination. This is becoming more frequent these days. It is called reverse discrimination. Watch the Dog Painter video.
Indiana’s governor Mike Pence has become the latest causality in what is a war against religious freedom by intolerant leftist groups. They frequently use the courts as a weapon to claim discrimination, when there is no discrimination present.
“Love the sinner, hate the sin.” Leftist say, but now you must participate in the sin, or get sued, lose your business, or go to jail. That’s a loss of your Constitutional Rights!
It all goes back some decades ago when leftist politicians started packing the courts with leftist judges that are hell bound to destroy your God-given rights. In particular, your First Amendment Right.
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) was written to protect people of conscience from being discriminated against by bigots that hate religion. The attacks range from removing “In God We Trust” off of United States currency, to forcing small business owners to participate in acts that violate their religious principles.
Leftist have become the new look of intolerance and discrimination. The usual hucksters of intolerance get themselves in front of a TV camera to make wild claims of discrimination, when there is none. Al Sharpton is the poster child of racial discrimination and bigotry, and NBC has given this racist his own show to spread his hatred.
Dan Savage, a disgusting x-rated gay activist, that routinely bashes Christians is getting a ABC/Disney television show. Isn’t that special!
A perusal of Dan Savage’s work reveals a career built on advocating violence — even murder — and spewing hatred against people of faith. Savage has spared no one with whom he disagrees from his vitriolic hate speech. Despite his extremism, vulgarity, and unabashed encouragement of dangerous sexual practices, Disney ABC is moving forward with this show, disgustingly titled “Family of the Year.”
This is the objective by extremist gay activists, to force their lifestyle into American homes, expose children to this lifestyle and destroy Christian religious family values. If you wonder why more Christian families are opting to home school, then it is because of this activity Christians find religiously immoral.
CNN’s host Sally Kohn tweeted out a PSA for her followers: “You Guys, I’m bowling for abortion access! Donate Now!” Kohn is joining the National Abortion Access Bowl-A-Thon in an effort to raise money for abortions. The event is a nationwide series from the National Network of Abortion Funds that allows community members to raise money to help pay for abortions with their friendly neighborhood abortion funds. (Their Words) Talk about worshiping the gods of death. I find Kohn more of a mental sickness, than a religious argument. Celebrating the murder of innocents is a mental disorder.
Apple’s Tim Cook spoke about discrimination but fails to acknowledge discrimination against what Mozilla did to Brendan Eich to remove him from the company as CEO. Cook is a hypocrite for not recognizing people’s religious rights. For these extremist groups, the road of discrimination is a one way street. They can discriminate against you and your beliefs, but you cannot protect yourself against their discrimination.
RFRA was signed into law in 1993 by then President Bill Clinton. There were no cries of discrimination then. RFRA simply allows religious liberties to be raised as a defense in lawsuits brought by bigots wanted to force their lifestyle upon others. A religious liberty may be offered as a defense against a lawsuit, but is not a guarantee that this defense will be accepted in a court of law. Not when activist judges routinely rule in favor of bigots wanting to make an example out of innocent people practicing their religious beliefs. That is pure discrimination by the courts.
Gay-rights activism is, just at the moment, very much oriented toward preventing the emergence of any social compromise on the matter of homosexual marriage, which is why tradition-minded florists and bakers, generally conservative Christians, are being targeted for prosecution as enemies of civil rights. In terms of government interest, homosexual couples planning wedding receptions in Connecticut are a good deal less compelling than were black Americans who were effectively circumscribed from public life — political, social, and economic — under the machinery of oppression constructed by Democrats after the Civil War. Among other things, the market provides same-sex couples plenty of other options. But gay-rights activists insist that the situations are morally and politically identical. That this view is rightly received with some skepticism by the general public — including much of the public inclined to support gay marriage and similar issues — is why the increasingly fanatical homosexual activists reject the notion that religious liberty might even be raised as an issue in the case of a wedding planner who does not wish to be involved in the blessing of a homosexual union. Their goal is a coercive coast-to-coast regime with no room for social compromise at all.
So why don’t the gay-rights activists just move on to another bakery, photographer, or florist? Why create more tension against those that don’t share in the gay lifestyle by attacking them in court?
What I find equally interesting is how real discrimination against gays in Muslim countries are ignored by the gay community. Muslim savages don’t discriminate between Christian and Gays, they kill them both with equal hatred. Yet, you never hear any discussion about these atrocities in the name of Allah.
Muslim activists in America have been using the same discrimination playbook to spread their hatred. This creeping social intolerance is just an strategy to silence those that don’t share their lifestyle. Muslims want to impose Sharia laws in America, one law for them, and another law for you. How is this any different from the tactics the Gay mafia uses to discriminate against Christians?
Isn’t ironic that these activist groups surround themselves with righteous death, and reject a life of freedom. They all have one goal in common that that is to destroy the God given freedoms and the laws of freedom in the Constitution. They want to rewrite the Bill of Rights to only give selective rights to those that agree with their lifestyle.
Leftist use the same false argument; if gays walk into a business, they will be denied service. FALSE! That’s NOT the case at all! It is being forced to participate in an activity, that’s the objection. The baker didn’t refuse to sell cakes. The florist didn’t refuse to sell flowers. The photographer didn’t refuse to take pictures. They all refused to participate in the activity. I wouldn’t want to be forced to watch either a play with a bunch of burly guys swapping spit on stage, or a play about women discussing their vagina’s. That’s not a religious objection, that’s personal decision. If you want to watch that garbage, then have at it. I’ll move on and do something else, and the activists should have found another bakery, florist, and photographer. Use some common sense and get along.
Now lets get this clear. The government has no business forcing people to participate in a activity that goes against their religious beliefs. You can neither force a Jewish delicatessen to sell ham, and nor can you force Christians to participate in activities against their religious beliefs. Damaging people’s lives with lawsuits, destroying businesses, jobs, and livelihoods; all because you disagree with their conscience objection not to engage in an objectionable activity is discrimination. Be it religious, or not!

During an interview with Vice News, President Obama said he was “embarrassed” for senators who signed a letter to Iranian leaders informing them that binding agreements with the United States must be ratified by the Senate. Here’s what the president said:
“I’m embarrassed for them. For them to address a letter to the ayatollah who they claim is our mortal enemy, and their basic argument to them is ‘don’t deal with our president cause you can’t trust him to follow through on [an] agreement,’ that’s close to unprecedented.”
Senator Cotton’s letter does not suggest that the Iranians can’t trust the president. If anything, the senators are worried that the Iranians can trust Obama to keep his end of the bargain knowing full well that the Iranians cannot be trusted to keep their end of the deal precisely because they are “our mortal enemy.”
Does Obama not believe Iran is our mortal enemy?
The letter was not addressed to the ayatollah nor was it a secret. It was a public letter to the “Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” and the American people were just as much the intended audience. That is why the senators made it public.
The only person who has sent secret letters to the ayatollah is Barack Obama. According to the Wall Street Journal,Obama has sent at least four secret letters to the ayatollah.
There is no reason for the senators who signed that letter to be embarrassed. If anyone should be embarrassed it is the president. As Senator Cotton explained, “The only thing unprecedented is an American president negotiating a nuclear deal with the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism without submitting it to Congress.”
Branco and Legal Insurrection have great articles and cartoons.
The American people should be the ones embarrassed by this mulatto bastard man-child. Obama and the democrats have been giving Aid and Comfort to America’s enemies. Obama has put this country at risk, and Obama has abandoned our allies. Obama has embraced the Islamic State (ISIS), and Obama has openly praised the religion of perpetual terror. Note that Islam is not a religion. Islam is submission to evil.
Obama the bullshit artist hates America. Actions speak louder than words, and I will no longer believe that Barry the Bullshitter believes in America. Nor will I believe that any democrat cares for America. Republicans better wake up. This “get along, to go along” is getting stale and tiresome. Either listen to the people, or see your future end at the ballot box. I don’t want another lecturer in chief.
Upon questioning, the EPA Chief Gina McCarthy, cannot answer simple questions about the environment. The person wanting more taxpayer monies for a corrupt agency under liberal progressive control, cannot cite basic questions about the environment. It proves that environmentalism is lie, a joke, a corrupt government agency.
You would expect the person running this agency would know the answers off the top of their head. Was McCarthy unprepared, or incompetent?
“Climate change is real. It is happening. It is a threat,” McCarthy said. “Climate change is not a religion. It is not a belief system. It’s a science fact.”
This, from the same person that claims Global Warming is not a religion? Science Fact? Yet, she cannot produce any science facts to prove her claims. How is this possible? How does this person continue to keep her job?
We know that the science behind global warming is a hoax. We know there is a larger agenda to control the lives of people with crushing government regulations. We know the left is manufacturing lies to scare people into believing the climate is being controlled by humans.
These lunatics believe the government is spreading mind control chemicals through commercial aircraft. They call them “Chem-Trails”
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) wants you to believe that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is dangerous and should be classified as a pollutant. This is insanity! Carbon Dioxide is a necessary component for life on this planet.
This is the same argument that population control people have been using for years. They believe that humans are a pest, an environmental flea that can be shaken off. George Carlin had a great comedy skit about this. NSFW!
The real reason is revealed by the United Nations Climate Chief; It is to destroy capitalism.
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
These people are “Crony Capitalist“, they are responsible for the corruption of real Capitalism. Real Capitalism, like real Conservationist, protects the environment and resources. Helps economies grow and thrive. They believe in real science and real results.
These global warming people are science fiction bullshit artists. They call anyone that doesn’t believe in their religion of climate change, a denier. They have called for the public execution of anyone that disputed this “settled science” .
They believe that science is a consensus, that you vote for the result. They remind me of the ancient heretics that would burn people at the stake for denying their religious word. Their god of intolerance.
The Obama regime has used this practice to attack legitimate industries. This is the disease of liberalism. It is a mental disease and undoubtedly the greatest environmental danger to the planet, and humankind.
Under the government force of the Obama regime, progressives have damaged the environment, the economy and the planet; all for a false religion of Gaia. From GMO technology to Guitar manufacturing, the progressive movement has proven to be anti-environment, anti-law, and anti-human.
