Pat Condell Gets It Right About Why We Don’t, And Never Will, Respect Islam

A word to rioting Muslims. (I know, that is redundant.)

Well said, Pat, I could not agree with you more.

We Need To Add A New Phrase, “Going Muslim”, To The Lexicon

It is becoming obvious that we must add the term “going Muslim” to the lexicon, just like “going postal” was added a couple of decades ago. It is also time that our government, the liberals, and the media admit that Islam is inherently violent, and thus steps must be taken to limit it. Unlike Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, or whatever other mainstream religion you want to mention, Islam is not just a religion. It is an ideology. It is a way of life. It is a legal system. It is wrong, and it is evil.

Every time someone points out that Mohammad (if he ever actually existed) was an insane, epileptic, barbarian, misogynist, megalomaniac, pedophile, or refers to his sock-puppet Allah in any way that they find offensive, they “go Muslim”, which is to say that they riot, burn, destroy, pillage, and kill! We all remember when they rioted over a few cartoons. How juvenile! How barbaric! But, the problem is that our government, while mildly chastising the rampaging Muslims, has been severely criticizing the people who drew the pictures, burned a Koran, or made a really bad movie! (If you have not seen it, it is like a really bad high school production.) When people do stupid things, or have an ideology that is every bit as dangerous, fascist, and totalitarian as Nazism, we need to criticize it and strive to limit the spread of that ideology. One way to do that is through satire and humor. If we act like we respect the ideology or Mohammad, that is no different from when Nevil Chamberlain appeased Hitler; and we all know how that ended.

As Sam Harris correctly pointed out in an article in the Huffington Post titled “Loosing Our Spines to Save Our Necks” in response to the violence related to “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day”:

There is an uncanny irony here that many have noticed. The position of the Muslim community in the face of all provocations seems to be: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we will kill you. Of course, the truth is often more nuanced, but this is about as nuanced as it ever gets: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we peaceful Muslims cannot be held responsible for what our less peaceful brothers and sisters do. When they burn your embassies or kidnap and slaughter your journalists, know that we will hold you primarily responsible and will spend the bulk of our energies criticizing you for “racism” and “Islamophobia.”

It is time we started treating the Islamic ideology as the hateful, destructive, misogynist, totalitarian ideology that it is, and stop calling it a religion. Yes, it has a religious element, and I guess that was Hitler’s mistake. If he had quit the Catholic church (which never condemned him or Nazism, by the way) and created his own religion that was integral to Nazism, perhaps we’d all be speaking German now.

It’s Time To Simply Cut Off The Spoiled Muslim Brats

Today, (9/11, of all days), the spoiled Muslim brats in Egypt stormed our embassy in Cairo and tore down our flag and burned it. They then went further and demanded that WE apologize to them about supposedly insulting their insane, epileptic, barbarian, misogynist, megalomaniac, pedophile hero Mohammad and his sock puppet Allah! I say enough is enough! We should never, ever apologize to them for anything, and we should insist that they leave the 7th century behind and move into the 21st century. If they refuse to do this, then we should absolutely cut off ALL financial and other aid to their country. That goes especially for military aid.

Since the Islamists took over in Egypt (and Libya, Tunisia, Yemen, Algeria, and soon, Syria), they have become Islamist Sharia states, just like I predicted would happen, not democracies. Democracy and Islam are mutually exclusive. Since the fall of Mubarak, we have seen Christians in those nations  severely persecuted and killed and their churches destroyed. We have seen how the 1979 peace treaty has been broken by the fact that Egypt has poured troops and war machines into the Sinai peninsula, and given control of that area over to al Qaeda and other similar organizations. We have even heard proposals that the great pyramids be destroyed, just as the Buddhist temples were destroyed by the Taliban a few years ago.

Egypt, like most Muslim nations that don’t have oil, is an economic basket case. They have virtually no industry and no way to support themselves except through handouts (basically jizzya) from the civilized world and tourism. Of course, now that they are embracing Sharia and re-establishing the Caliphate (which I also predicted a long time ago), no non-Muslim person in their right mind from the civilized world will want to go to Egypt on vacation. Thus, without aid from the civilized world, the nation will perish. Hopefully, Islam will perish along with it. The Islamists have an expression: “Islam is the solution”. Actually, as they will finally find out if we refuse to give in to their temper tantrums and cut off all aid, “Islam is the problem”.
