A Few Bad Apples

When it comes to Islam, people like George W. Bush, Barack Obama and our corrupt State Department, insist the jihadists are an aberration and should not be the cause of slandering an entire religion. To which, I say a heart-felt “Baloney!”

When it comes to the followers of Islam, we’re not talking about a few rotten apples; we’re talking about a toxic orchard. In much the same way, our leaders keep pretending there’s a world of difference between Sunni and Shite, or between Al Qaeda, the Khorasan Group, the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, Boko Haram and the Muslim Brotherhood. They even pretend that CAIR, the propaganda arm of the Brotherhood here in America, is any better or has any other function than the Nazi Bund had in the 30s and early 40s, prior to our entry into World War II. The problem is that the past two administrations have refused to acknowledge that Islam is at war with us.

Whether it’s a beheading in Oklahoma or several others in Iraq; the killing and maiming of several members of the military by Major Hasan; the burning of churches and Christians in Egypt; the D.C. killers; the pressure cooker bombings in Boston; the kidnapping and raping of 300 school girls in Nigeria; clitorectomies in Yemen; suicide bombings in Israel; or the horror of 9/11; our gutless leaders insist it has nothing to do with Islam. Even though the villains are constantly telling us that the crimes are committed in the name of Allah, those sworn to protect America insist they’re lying and that they have nothing to do with Islam. You might as well pretend that the concentration camps, the ovens and Dr. Mengele’s nightmarish operations, were all aberrations and had nothing to do with Nazism.

As you may have heard, perennial bachelor and left-wing pinhead George Clooney finally got around to tying the knot with the Lebanese-born Amal Alamuddin. One can easily see the mutual attraction. One, both are physically attractive. Two, lawyer Alamuddin has represented the Communist state of Cambodia, the former Libyan chief of intelligence Abdullah Al Senussi and the vile Julian Assange, while simultaneously opposing the use of drones in counter-intelligence operations and, predictably, condemned Israel for defending itself against Hamas. She said, “I am horrified by the situation in the occupied Gaza Strip,” but never condemned the tunnels dug by Islamic terrorists or the thousands of missiles that the vermin constantly rain down on Israel.

It can be very difficult shopping for a couple who have everything but brains, but I don’t think anyone can go wrong sending the newlyweds the collected works of Saul Alinsky or an autographed photo of Osama bin Laden.

During his recent address to the U.N., Obama, in the same sentence, actually linked Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and ISSA’s attempt to create a caliphate in the Middle East to the shooting of a black thug, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri. It would be as if I seriously compared someone being diagnosed with cancer or another person’s having a leg amputated to my case of the sniffles.

But one scoundrel who would agree with Obama is Eric Holder, who has never bothered showing up when a black hoodlum has shot a white cop, but who, if Dulles Airport had been snowed in, would have hitchhiked to Ferguson in order to make an appearance at Brown’s memorial service.

Under Obama and Holder, a violation of civil rights is any crime in which a black person is the alleged victim, but never when a white person is maimed, murdered or denied his constitutional right to vote. In similar fashion, workplace violence is the way murders committed by Muslims are defined by this administration, whether they take place at a meat plant or a military base.

I know that many people were heartened by Holder’s promise to resign by the end of the year. Not I. In the same way that Henry Waxman’s resignation only meant that he would be replaced by a younger version of himself, thanks to the liberal voters in California’s 33rd congressional district, I have no doubt that the creep who chose Holder will find an equally partisan toady to replace him at the Department of Injustice.

In a recent article, I mentioned how bizarre I found it that 17 states are represented in the Senate by one Republican and one Democrat. It simply made no sense to me. But it made perfect sense to one of my readers in Florida who defended it on the grounds that “There are a lot of us Floridians who are not rabid partisans. That’s why we have two good people in the Senate. Marco Rubio is a Republican and Bill Nelson is a Democrat. Some call us a swing state, but I’d rather be known as an objective state.”

“Well, I replied, “speaking objectively, I’d say you’re a schizophrenic state that can’t tell its butt from its elbow. No wonder you folks had so much trouble with chads in 2000, forcing the Supreme Court to help you count your ballots. You may think that both your senators are good people, but only one of them favors gun control; opposes tax relief for the middle class; opposes the Keystone pipeline; opposes repealing the ethanol subsidy; opposes the Hobby Lobby decision, protecting religious rights; voted against the GOP budget that called for cutting federal spending; and, by the way, voted for ObamaCare.

“They both might be as nice as you claim, but only one of them stood the slightest chance of being invited to Venice for the Clooney-Alamuddin wedding.”
