Imams & Airplanes

Posted in U.S.,War on Terror by Ryan on the November 29th, 2006

Unreal. These particular Muslims have the effrontery to demand everyone to go blind and forget the past.

Strangely enough, Keith Ellison is somewhat in the middle of this “scandalous denial of civil rights.” His website has a Thanksgiving message devoted almost entirely to discrediting the legitimate fears of passengers boarding the US Airways domestic flight.

This article by Hugh Hewitt and this article by Ann Coulter analyze the situation perfectly. These Imams were not acting normal, they were acting stupid and should be removed from every flight until they act normal like everyone else.

Hugh Hewitt hits the nail on the head:

Were they trying to show just how bigoted and backwards Americans are? Just because four planes crashed as their hijackers screamed “Allah Akbar!” five years ago, suddenly everyone who says “Allah Akbar” while flying becomes suspect in the eyes of the typical American rube. It’s not fair. After all, a Roman Catholic could make the Sign of the Cross before eating his airline-issued Animal Crackers and no one would look twice.

Multicultural Activism

Posted in U.S. by Ryan on the November 29th, 2006

This article at Townhall is worth a glance.

What Ellison and his Muslim and leftist supporters are saying is that it is of no consequence what America holds as its holiest book; all that matters is what any individual holds to be his holiest book.

The most compelling reason to not allow it is that, as the author says, “it is an act of hubris that perfectly exemplifies multiculturalist activism — my culture trumps America’s culture.  While it is important to be tolerant and accepting toward other religions, it seems foolish to open the door to redefining what book an elected official can use to be sworn in with.

It also seems perfectly acceptable to question the timeliness of setting such a precedent with a Muslim congressman when there have been plenty of non-Christian or altogether non-religous congressmen before now.

Redefinition of “Illegal Alien”

Reading this post at got me thinking…

I recently watched a Lou Dobbs special on CNN which was an open “Town Hall” meeting in Texas. Fascinating.

Besides making fools of themselves and their arguments through uncivilized behavior, proponents for open borders made clear their goal of undermining the fundamental and rudimentary definition of non-citizens that crossed the border unlawfully. That definition being, “illegal aliens.” More than once, they insisted that illegal aliens be called “undocumented immigrants,” claiming that no one is ever “illegal” and Mexican immigrants are not from another planet.

Perhaps this is why they abhor making English the only official language in the US. They don’t even know it themselves.
