    CNN is having programs showing what they call the diff between Islamic and Islamism. Islamism is the “bad” and Islamic is the “good.” Amazing. It appears they mean that the Islamism practicers actually do the deeds but the Islamics just think about it and don’t do it. Very confusing. Thus ISIS is not Islamic but Islamist. Supposedly the Islamics would not do the dirty deeds, or something like that. I guess you have to be a prog to understand.

      Must be. I guess the ones who only “think about it” are considered the “moderate” Islamics, right?

      The Muslims can’t even decide what “Islamic” is, that’s why there are so many different sects, so I’d love to hear CNN’s definition of it. And if the “Islamism” of a particular sect is their belief that “Islam should guide social and political as well as personal life” (as wikipedia defines it), then there is no separating the “Islamism” from the “Islam” of that sect. But it seems that there is always this all or nothing dichotomy presented. Either these terrorist acts have NOTHING to do with Islam, or EVERYTHING to do with Islam. To say the terrorism has nothing to do with Islam while the terrorists rant derka allah muhammad jihad is patently absurd. It’s like telling people they didn’t see what they just saw or hear what they just heard. To say the terrorism has everything to do with Islam makes the 1+ billion Muslims in the world, most of whom never have and probably never would commit terrorist acts, be seen as (and see themselves as) the victims of stereotyping and prejudice, religious intolerance, veiled racism, etc. etc. etc. And reasonable people can see both sides of the argument because it obviously does have something to do with Islam, but obviously all Muslims can’t be itching to strap on suicide vests. Most Americans don’t know the basics of what Islam is, let alone the differences between the Shia and Sunnis. And why should they? All they see is barbarian hordes babbling derka allah muhammad jihad like in Team America. So it begs the question, why is there this effort to make it an all or nothing choice? Either it’s not “Islamic” at all . . . derka allah muhammad jihad, ALLAHU AKBAR! Or Islam is the root of all evil!!! Derka derka allah muhammad jihad, ALLAHU AKBAR! It’s not hard to see where this is heading.

        There are a bunch of different Christian denominations plus the outlier Christians like JW or LDS. Those groups aren’t running around and killing each other now (I know, there is a checkered past there, but we worked it out). I tend to think it is political. I see terrorists as Islam’s liberal left party. I know they claim to be more holy, but really they just want to control everything everybody else does in the world through lies and threats and actual violence when they can get away with it.

        Terrorism is Islam’s Liberal Party. lol

        It’s true that followers of a religion can do good or evil in its name. But the question of whether a religion itself is good or evil is quite different.
        All you need to determine whether a religion is good or evil is to look to the actions of it’s most perfect prophet and the words of its most holy books. There is no question in my mind that Jesus Christ and the teachings of the bible is all that is good. Their prophet and his teachings…

          Jesus gave us the test of whether a something is good or evil, as he was accused of being an agent of evil himself:

          Now he was casting out a demon that was mute. When the demon had gone out, the mute man spoke, and the people marveled. But some of them said, “He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the prince of demons,” while others, to test him, kept seeking from him a sign from heaven. But he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and a divided household falls. And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that I cast out demons by Beelzebul. And if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. But if it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are safe; but when one stronger than he attacks him and overcomes him, he takes away his armor in which he trusted and divides his spoil. Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.
          

          (Luke 11:14-23 ESV)

          I guess I’ve thought about this for a long time and I’ve come to this conclusion. If people are convinced that Islam is the root of evil and their own religion/society/nation is good, then they have an obligation to confront the evil and destroy it, especially given the frequency of violence done in the name of the evil religion. I don’t see an alternative.

    “There are cases which cannot be overdone by language, and this is one. There are persons, too, who see not the full extent of the evil which threatens them; they solace themselves with hopes that the enemy, if he succeed, will be merciful. It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf, and we ought to guard equally against both.” – Thomas Paine (23 December 1776)

  5. These ultra-liberal MSM talking heads who insist that “hate speech” or “intolerance” is what is creating the divide between Muslims and “others” have the whole “chicken or egg” question backwards – the intolerance and “hate speech” are a result of the actions of the “activists” (sarc) – not the other way around.

      The Left understands that culture follows language. Many aspects of a particular culture shape its language, and are in turn, shaped by the language’s evolution. Nuances, word constructions and new words shape how we think and, going forward, how we construct new words and the thoughts/concepts that are defined and shaped by those words.

      Take for example the hijacking of the word “gay”. It went from describing a mood or reaction as happy to redefining aberrant homosexual behavior into something more acceptable. Now, “gay” is a benchmark. It has become a pejorative and even a supposed right.

      That worked so well, that people who were anti-gay have now been saddled with the more clinical word “homo” and the word “phobia,” along with the latter’s irrational component. Since that stung detractors so badly, the Left and its enablers in the so-called Media decided to add “Islam” into the mix. That way we’d be deluded into thinking that anyone who called out Islam on its extreme, death-cult tendencies was really some sort of pathetic irrational hater.

      Words shape how we think. How we say things, especially in English, is nearly as critical as what we say, especially as how it relates to conditioning future thoughts and reactions. I mean, how many of us refer to our “homosexual friends”? No, they are now our “gay friends”. Nuance leads to acceptance. Acceptance leads to a change in attitude. Attitudes shape actions/reactions.

      Words fuc*ing matter.

    Christiane Amanpour about the vile Islamist who savagely killed 12 innocent people On this day these activists found their targets, their targets were journalists this was a clear attack on freedom of expression, freedom of the press, and on satire

    Go to hell Christiane.

    They were not activists they were savage terrorists who slaughtered 12 innocent people because of their vile ideology. It was an attack on living breathing human beings whose view on life is different than sub human beasts. The terrorists would kill you as easily as they slaughtered the cartoonist had they been given the opportunity. Christiane, you are their enemy even as you hope to understand them and sugar coat their actions when you call them “activists”.

      Amanpour is the daughter of a Shi’ite Muslim and, as such, would have been expected to be raised as a Muslim despite the mother’s Christianity. Despite the “white washing” of her personal religious convictions by her publicists, I view her as a cognitively dissonant apologist for other Muslims, worldwide.

      She simply just can’t bring herself to admit that her own father was an adherent to a barbaric ideology, or that he (apparently) refused to abandon it. This leaves her conflicted mind no choice but to euphemize the acts done in name of her father’s “religion”. Much like a crazed cat in a world-sized sand box, she is desperately trying to dust everything with a liberal supply of kitty litter.

          This artist she named is the artist behind the Twin Towers artwork pictured behind her in the link you provided. It seems unlikely she is referring to some other “massive painting” by him. She experiences “joy” when she sees the painting of the Twin Towers on fire.

  8. One thing that really irks me is the term “phobia” tacked on to the end of a word.

    Phobia literally means a fear of something.

    I am not afraid of Islam. If the jihadists would fight toe to toe with Americans instead of the cagey behind the scenes stuff, we’d win hands down.

    Have you ever seen those guys try to shoot their AK47s? Shouting and crazy, they just blow through about 20 rounds of ammo firing in random directions. They even do this in a fire fight. Nothing there to be afraid of. They can’t aim. Did you see the photo of Ali holding the AR? He wasn’t even holding it properly.

      A phobia is an irrational fear. Being “afraid” of your country turning into an Islamic state is not irrational — it’s actually perfectly normal considering what we know about Islam.

      Phobias are mostly a result of evolution. We fear snakes inherently because we know they bite. We fear a lion because our ancestors didn’t want to be eaten by one. We fear Islam because we know it is a barbaric religion full of barbaric and backwards people.

  9. Herlock Solmes says:

    It all goes back to the cult of “equality.” If you were to ask a liberal to sum up their philosophy of life in a single word, it would indeed be “equality.” To them, there is no difference at all in any two individuals. Homosexuals are equivalent to heteros. Men are equal to women. Race is a “social construct.” According to them, I am just as good of a basketball player as Kobe Bryant. I mean, since there’s no difference at all in any two individuals, then it follows that I have just as much basketball talent as him. Right? I just haven’t “cultivated” my talent and it lay dormant.

    Now they are going so far to say that gender is a social construct and doesn’t exist (no, I am not kidding). Of course, simple logic can be used to illustrate the absurdity of their beliefs, but logic doesn’t matter to a cult. And a cult they are. Gutfeld gave a perfect example of their logical fallacies in this monologue, but I doubt most of them will ever get it and they probably didn’t even catch it.

    In any case, to get on topic of how this is relevant here, if we assume that all humans are exactly the same in each and every way, then it follows that all religions are equal too. Therefore, it makes no sense to them for one to proclaim that Islam is somehow inherently more violent or primitive in any way when compared to Buddhism, Christianity or Scientology. Indeed, we may as well argue that Islam is a social construct (just like gender) and doesn’t really exist. Armonpour essentially said just this when she called them “activists.” They aren’t Islamic, but merely your run of the mill activists, guys! I mean we all know that a common form of “activism” is to gun down 12 people. There’s really nothing to see here, let’s just move along! Activists will be activists, after all.

    We have TV programming covering imams discussing Islam, and I have listened to these men on several occasions, trying to gain insight into their beliefs. They remind me of Rev. Jeremiah Wright (yes, Ihave seen him in action); he may insist he is a Christian, but his message preaches his disdain for America and his hate for the white man.

    You cannot preach hate and retaliation without is coming back to bite you in the behind by encouraging those who follow you to act out. Islam, which preaches that it is the ONLY way, and by enforcing brutal retaliation for those who stray, sets the example for the behavior of all who follow it. Islam = Islamism.

    Acts of terrorism are now, “activism”? Are these new synonyms? If, so, then let’s apply this to its logical conclusion. A “community activist” is now a “community terrorist”. That sounds good to me. DHS is going to busy, indeed, because that means the activist-right Left is now a terror front, right? All hyperbole aside, I think this whole pronouncement just confirms what we’ve known all along about Amanpour: she’s a terrorist-loving, anti-American, poor excuse for a journalist.

    Gutfeld is right, top to bottom. The Left has hijacked language in an attempt to turn something righteous into something ugly. Remember that “phobia” literally means, a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it. Their “targeting” word in that whole definition is irrational, which connotes one being unstable, cruel or even ignorant. Remove the word irrational and the rest of the definition pretty much applies to a rational reaction to Islam and the fruits that it bears.

    Stay away from “non-clinical” uses of the word, phobia. They are devices of the Left. For example, homophobia literally means, “fear of self”. What a stupid word, huh? Or, maybe we start calling people like Amanpour, Øbama and other Lefties, Ameriphobics or perhaps even inalienablerightsaphobics! While awkward constructions, both words sure do describe the problem, don’t they!

    It always comes down to the basis of ‘who’s doing the definitions of terms and for what reasons. Those who think homosexuality is immoral for personal or religious reasons are hammered as being homophobic. Those of us who avoid being tourists in Muslim areas during major Muslim holidays are Islamophobic. You ain’t gonna win, they are going to dismiss your concerns and beliefs by calling you one of those acceptable progressive adjectives until you shrink away in shame and reconsider changing your beliefs. Now that that’s out of the way…
    Watched Holder on TV this AM. He mentioned that his consultations with the French have yielded little new but the WH has called an international conference for February 18th that will work with other nations on a more coordinated response…yada yada yada. He did say that we will NOT single out persons to surveil based on those factors which have so far proven to be the best indicators of terrorist bent while also being the worst factors of progressive PC. So if you’re wearing a chador, chanting prayers to Istishhad and wearing a backpack with a huge, burning cartoon fuze waving out the back – you’re good to go on two out of three.
    Listening to his speech with the trained, paranoid and ‘I wouldn’t trust him to takeout my garbage’ ear I also believe that he said the DoJ and other Federal agencies will use the Paris incident to bolster its country-wide ‘down to your skid marks’ surveillance. The’concern’ this has created in many members of the urban expensive-bad-coffee crowd has given the government a respite in the concern over its vacuuming up every bit of your personal information on a daily basis and analyzing/storing it away. “My children…you honkies too…just give me those freedoms that you really don’t need on a daily basis, and a little of those you do, and we’ll keep you safe from those whose ideology isn’t that foreign to me.” “If you are not an evildoer and are free from ideological impurities you have nothing to worry about…”
    Holder also gave us a tearful rendition of how he stays awake at night worrying about the lone-wolf bad guy, trying to make it seem as if he’s talking about some (religion unspecified) goat-smelling bomb thrower slithering through the underbrush. BUT if you’ve worked the CT business long enough you go back and the remember that some of the first references to the ‘lone-wolf’ as far as ‘terrorist’ goes were applied to white separatist/supremacy groups. I don’t mean to imply that I have doubts about the racial/religious neutrality of the DoJ under the joint command of the ‘If You Like It’ krewe (you got that NSA…I’m a good guy, REALLY), BUT if past is prologue I see some real problems on the horizon.
