A Reason To Be Vigilant - Jul 21

I love a woman in uniform (the one to the left I mean). Actually, I feel for the female bobby in this picture. The picture of grace under pressure. There would be no such restraint if it was the other way 'round. Count on it. Full story can be found here.

Someone once said that vigilance is the eternal price of freedom. Seems to me we have collectively forgotten the price we have to pay in order to remain that way. Everything comes with a cost. Salvation through Jesus Christ comes with a cost (the world will hate you). Being free costs you (tyrants will hate you). We are seeing today the slow yet ongoing self-destruction of Western civilization. Our enemies are willing to fight us and die for their cause. Are we willing to fight back? From Jihadi du Jour the words of the late (and current resident of Hell) Ayatollah Khomeini:

“Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to paradise, which can be opened only for holy warriors!

There are hundreds of other [Koranic] psalms and hadiths urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

“Islam grew with blood . . . . The great prophet of Islam in one hand carried the Koran and in the other a sword . . . . Islam is a religion of blood for the infidels but a religion of guidance for other people.”

—Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

The Islamists are training their children to be ready for jihad as well. We are talking about real young 'uns here. As soon as they're born the indoctrination to hate Jews and non-Muslims begins. To the West's credit, this is a topic that has come to their attention yet the likes of Hamas TV still show anti-semitic propaganda with little consequence. Unlike in Canada where fortunately this sort of thing is frowned upon.

Freedom of speech is not, nor was it ever intended to be, carte blanche. It does not give you the right to incite violence or call for the deaths of specific individuals or groups. It doesn't cover libel (the making of false accusations) either. These Islamist groups use and abuse, pervert and twist the meaning of freedom of expression. I for one do not favor the censoring of these supremacists. If it wakes people up to the fifth column in our midst then I'm all for it. However, we should not be afraid to call their bluff! This is true of anyone who makes a questionable statement, be it written or oral. Freedom of speech is NOT an absolute! I am absolutely convinced that most people do not understand this fundamental point. The whole point of FOS is to protect whistleblowers (who, acting in good faith) from malicious prosecution. This persecution can come from well-funded NGO's (such as CAIR) or from their own gov't. When working Joes see suspicious activity or hear incitement to violence they have every right to report it to the police or petition their gov't without fear of backlash. The Left has never understood this. FOS was never meant to be an enabler of some kind of ideological crusade. Instead, they wield freedom of speech as a weapon to bludgeon all those who don't support their militant humanist secular-progressive POV. Then when someone has the chutzpah to fight back at such scandalous and libelous behaviour the Left (or the Islamists) hide under the skirt of 'freedom of expression'. Cowards they are. For them to try to substantiate and defend in court any one of their baseless claims terrifies them. I think this is what separates America from the rest of the world. Americans are not afraid to air their dirty laundry in public. This does not weaken them, on the contrary it has made America the freest country on Earth. Americans recognize that when secrecy rules, liberty dies. Freedom is precious. Let us never be complacent against those who wish to destroy it.
