Lesson Of Blizzard 2015: Americans Are Become A Nation Of Helpless Wimps

NYC-Blizzard2015

Old America, the land of the free and the brave is gone.  In a media-fed Panic, Cities shut down, transportation is closed, and America shows the world we are affrighted souls that will cower before a Winter snow.

Once upon a time in a faraway place called Chicagoland, there were two seasons of the year that were always inevitable.  Everyone knew they would come, and everyone knew they had to deal with them.

They were the dreaded seasons of Winter and Road Construction.

To date, these are two seasons that even the nonsensical hype of global warming and “climate change” cannot affect.  In fact, I have discovered that in most urban and big city areas, these two seasons are like peanut butter and jelly.  One will follow right after the other.  Once upon a time in America, you shrugged your shoulders, perhaps you cursed, you rolled up your sleeves or windows and you slogged through both of those miserable seasons until you got to where you were going.  Get there you would, no matter what it took, and no amount of complaining and whining would make any difference.  You just dealt with it.

In the old days, school rarely, if ever, closed for the weather – and most folks braved elements that today’s wimpish people would not dare contemplate themselves enduring.

I remember vividly, the Blizzard of ’79 in Chicago.  The two full days of wet snow dumping without ceasing, followed by a bone-chilling wind that would rip right through you.  School was canceled only after about 8 inches fell, and I recall fondly the memories of digging out cars, shoveling off our roof (because the weight of the snow had been collapsing roofs in some suburban shopping centers) building the world’s largest snow forts and having days on end of Winter fun sledding off our roof and pummeling passers-by with snowballs.

roof79 79Chitown 1979Chicago

Our parents and elders did as they always have done; curse the weatherman for a faulty forecast and trudge on out to shovel some more and help dig our neighbors.  We would clear the streets before the plows walled-off homeowners  in mountains of wet snow and slush that required immediate shoveling, or it would freeze at the end of your driveway into an impenetrable wall that one could not breach until perhaps late April.  We made great money that Winter shoveling out neighborhoods and helping to excavate cars from snowdrift prisons.  Blizzards and storms were not some kind of apocalypse or ‘historic’  event back in Old America.

In Old America, we used to call modern-day ‘snowpocalypses’: Winter.  We called what the Northeast saw this week: Winter.   We expected it would be bitter cold and we expected at some point or many points depending on how Winter rolled, we would have mountains of snow that would stay on the ground for months and over-time, plowed mountains of snow would turn soot-black and hang around parking lot light poles until mid-June.  Those who loved the snow as we did,  prayed and jumped with glee for forecasts of a foot or more of the white stuff, and even when rent could not be made unless every day was worked.  A snow day was a welcome break in the bleak days of Winter.

I remember in 1979 that despite being buried in snow and drifts over 3 feet, life went on, and pretty quickly.  Schools were opened as soon as the main roads were cleared.  People went to work.  I recall reading complaints from those in the city limits where the response to clearing the streets was slow.  In fact, I think it was common knowledge that due to secondary streets being unplowed for a month, stalled L-trains and busses and trash piling up – that the mayor lost his reelection bid to a Jane Byrne. The politics of that Winter outlasted the snow in terms of memory for many Chicagoans.

We never needed to turn to the media or the government to tell us what to do to “prepare” for a winter storm.  Perhaps in the event of Nuclear fallout from a Russian ICBM we might incline our ears to hear what we should do in the event Chicago got glassed by the Russkies – but not for flakes falling from the sky.  We were not dependent on either the media or government to tell us what to do.  We just did as we each saw fit, and most often, it was the right things to do.

That was then, back in Old America  – back when America was a free country with a people that laughed at adversity and slugged themselves through difficulties, often without much complaining.  It was what you did, back in Old America.

But this is no longer the America we once grew up in.  In today’s America, the Praetorian Crisis-centered 24/7 media stokes a panic that today’s Nanny-State Government Politicians seize upon to impose quasi-martial-law and shut down entire cities if flakes are forecast to pile-up into more than a few inches.

So the blizzard of 2015 in the Northeast comes a-calling – not exactly Miami or Kingston Jamaica unfamiliar with the white stuff, and I offer the lunacy of this event as a text-book illustration of how wimped-out and afraid of our own long shadows of Winter Americans in Nanny-State Leftist controlled New America have become.

After a heavy bombardment of endless non-stop weather channel and media coverage panicking  people to prepare for the end of daze two days before the event, government officials like New York Communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio, hop on the ‘Armageddon-is-coming – prepare-to-shelter-in-place-now’ bandwagon.   Obama-hugging Chris Christie went on to declare a State of Emergency more than 24 hours BEFORE the snow started falling in earnest along with other mayors and government officials jumping in front of every camera they could find to ‘warn’ everyone of the impending ‘disaster’.

The hordes of megalopolis Northeasterners, like dutiful sheep freaked-out, and lined up in the elements as if waiting for tickets to a blockbuster, to invade stores like locusts to “prepare” for what was promised to be a ‘catastrophe’.  Food staples like beer, M&Ms, chips, pretzels and wine flew off shelves.  Carry-out establishments were mobbed with orders for citizens who have no knowledge of how to work a microwave oven.   Lonely souls who were told everything, including bars, bathhouses and x-rated clubs were shutting down, put out invites on Craigslist for sexual partners to share the time whilst Winter destroyed civilization around them.

Bread and milk became extinct. In the height of the stoked panic, the politicians issued defacto orders of Martial law – announcing the complete closures of all roads to anyone besides emergency personnel.  The NY Mayor, never allowing even a potential crisis to go to waste, urged New Yorkers to “Prepare for something worse than we have seen before”.   Really.  That is pretty stunning to suggest, considering anything worse than this:

WTC-9-11

…would undoubtably be a just-cause to panic and run around screaming that the world was indeed, coming to an end.

So, with the entire city closing, curfews being imposed and threats of fines for being outside after 11 PM, panicked residents crammed the highways and bottlenecked themselves into a parking lot as snow began falling.  So, as I watched in amusement from afar – noting that the media makes every single weather event a :”catastrophic crisis unparalleled in human history” to push the GlobalWarming/Climate Change narrative down all out throats, I mused to myself that never before in the history of the country, has an entire city been shut down in fear over a potential weather event that had yet to occur.

So Tuesday morning dawns on America’s largest and “most important city”, to a blanket of…. 6″ of snow that covered a ‘City that never sleeps – but will shut down the moment there are flakes in the forecast”.

The media asks “What went wrong with the forecast?”  as if it was not the panic and the hype that was overblown, misused and wrong – but the variables in the forecasting itself.  Urging Americans to become helpless wimps beholden to the media and government is not to be questioned, but the weather forecasters for getting it wrong.  Of course the agenda of Climate Change continues to be whipped about like a chain mace that it’s wielders promise to flog us with until everyone agrees for the remedy for regular Americans to go back living as if it were the 1600’s – minus coal and wood burning stoves.

I have to scream: “IT’S WINTER YOU IDIOTS!  IT SNOWS BIG SOMETIMES IN THE WINTER AND GETS COLD!”  Have we really become a nation of helpless wimps that need the media and government to turn every potential issue into a life-threatening crisis that demands we accept quasi-martial law?  Or are we being conditioned for the same?  Are we truly stupid enough to let ourselves be conditioned to accept such a fate?

This ridiculous event makes it a frightening prospect, that if ISIS and the Jihadist Caliphate wanted to conquer New York City – all they would have to do is forecast a blizzard or some weather event to shut down the city and impose martial law.

Americans have become afraid of their own shadows at the urging of the media and the government whom they have made into their god.  Or at minimum as this event illustrates, afraid of some snowflakes.

As for those of you who may be left, I will also bring weakness into your hearts in the lands of your enemies. And the sound of a driven leaf will chase them, and even when no one is pursuing they will flee as though from the sword, and they will fall. They will therefore stumble over each other as if running from the sword, although no one is pursuing; and you will have no strength to stand up before your enemies. ‘But you will perish among the nations, and your enemies’ land will consume you.… – Leviticus 26: 36-38

One September Morning…

WTC-9-11

Everything changed one perfect morning twelve years ago, and into the fog of forget America wanders.

Like Memorial Day, September 11 is slowly but inexorably morphing into something other than a day to remember the reason the day is marked.  Time is eroding the true nature of Jihadist Islam and what it did to the mightiest nation on earth in just 102 minutes.

Of course Barack Obama and his Marxofascist Leftists have a hand in changing the public perception of what the day was and what it is now supposed to represent.  There’s a Million Man Muslim March on D.C. today to bitch and moan that 9-11 creates a negative stereotype of Muslims and to demand government stop “libelous slander against Islam”.

To counter that, a Two Million Biker Rally in remembrance of the Fallen and America’s Veterans was planned – but Obama’s Federal Government denied them the permit, even though they awarded a permit for the Muslims to march in victory over the Great Satan.   In good American tradition however, the Bikers are planning on ignoring any attempts by the feds to stop them, and are planning on riding to D.C. anyway.

It seems the efforts by the Obama regime and Muslims who demand Americans do not look at them or their religion in a negative light, are working hard to extinguish and paper-over what 9-11 really was and the kind of enemy who is still at war with us even as you read this.

But I remember what happened that one September morning twelve years ago.  Many others do also.

Lest we forget and become easy prey for those who seek to deceive in order to destroy.

A September Evening

Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog

For a while, the eyes still seemed to see them there, perfect straight lines rising into the sky, an empty space on the horizon that your mind filled in without even thinking. You walked past, and thought, “Of course they’re there. They’re always there” and you saw them as they were, grey ghosts of steel rising above the rubble. You saw the city as it was and then you remembered that city is gone.

New York, the old grimy bustling city, has made way for two cities. The Bloombergian city of the yuppie toting a bag of organic groceries to her Citibike and the miniature Detroits of housing projects and endless grievances.

The old imaginary city still exists in the countless movies being filmed on every block where space aliens, monsters and superheroes regularly rampage past stereotypical cabbies with Brooklyn accents, but that city is fading away.

The tourists flock to see the shadow of that city which lingers on like the shadow of the towers.

On September 11, Ground Zero was New York. Today you can see Mexican and African vendors peddling commemorative patriotic knickknacks made in China and on a bad day the Truthers show up howling their contempt for the site. Tourists stop by and pose for snapshots with their families. Office workers walk by without thinking. The site, like the towers, is just something that’s there.

Tonight and the night before as the towers of light cast blue beams across the sky, we remember but memory is a destructive medium. Each year the memories grow fainter. People ask each other where they were that day but the stories grow fainter each year and the memories of walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, stumbling through the ash or handing out sandwiches to rescue workers have dimmed.

To walk through the darkness toward the towers of light is to pass through a city of shadows. In a stray glimmer of light reflecting from a storefront or a puddle you can still see the old MISSING posters covering every face and dark trucks filled with grim men tearing apart the street asphalt. You can catch glimpses of a city reeling from the incomprehensible.

New York City is used to tragedy. Terrible things happen here all the time. The oldest photos of the city show the same stunned faces, legs lying in a puddle of blood, gawking children and stern cops frowning at something we cannot see. And relentlessly the blood is washed away, the tears are dried and the city moves on. September 11 left behind more blood, more legs and more frowning police… but the ashes have still been dumped in a landfill, the tears dried and the city moved on.

September 11 has become a tragedy and tragedy is an experience, not an explanation. It is a bonding experience that gives way to catharsis. The dead are mourned, the grief is expelled and the horror of it takes on the faint tinge of memory. It is no longer what is, but what was. It is not how we live now, but how we lived then. There is no longer a need for answers and that for many is also a relief.

“It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story,” Agatha Christie said.

Most people who live here have given up on solving the city’s detective stories. The weathered New Yorker is expected to meet the  inexplicable with a shrug of the shoulders. Everything is strange, but the strangeness is the point. Everyone is living in a postmodern detective story with no solutions and no need for them.

In Murder on the Orient Express, Poirot arrives at the solution by realizing that only in America could such an unlikely collection of characters have met. By America, he means New York, and the city is still the ideal place to find unlikely collisions of characters.

There is still a murder to be solved  and the suspects come and go in the streets below. The crime did not end with the murder of 3,000 people and the destruction of two towers. New schemes of mass murder are hatched every day across one river or the other. Maps are studied, charts are drawn up and the tools of the trade are gathered up by men who during the day sell papers or drive food trucks.

The murderers are still on the loose and what happened that terrible day was not an isolated incident, but part of a pattern of attacks taking place in a clash of civilizations. New York, the crossroads of civilizations, is a natural target for the attacks. New York is to the world what Mecca was to Arabia and the new Mohammeds are eager to do to it what Mohammed did to Mecca.

Bin Laden is dead, but the Muslim Oilsphere is full of other wealthy sons warring against the West. His backers are alive and the drone attacks that kill Al Qaeda leaders don’t touch their money men in the Oilsphere. The clerics who teach young Muslim men about the glories of martyrdom can rest easy. They can even open up a mosque at Ground Zero.

This conflict of ideologies and collision of cultures is nothing less than the perpetuation of the great Islamic crusade against the Other. And where better to wage that war than in the places where others meet others every day? What better target than a World Trade Center for a violent ideology built on merchants turned robbers and robbers turned merchants?

In a city where everyone is different, it can be difficult for some to understand that the attackers were motivated by those differences. Their war against us is an attack on people who are fundamentally and incomprehensibly different than they are.

Islam is xenophobia written into unholy writ, a long chain of conquest, subjugation and cultural destruction by desert nomads who know how to drive a sharp bargain, but despite their claims of golden ages and scientific discoveries, have never been anything more than the jackals sniffing around the ruins of greater civilizations.

It is as natural for them to attack us as it is for us to wonder why we were attacked.

Americans hold the peculiar belief that life need not be a zero sum game. That we can learn from other people without turning them into our subjects. That we can make more of something instead of stealing from a finite amount that someone else has and then destroying them so that they can never get it back.

That is the great creative power of American Exceptionalism. It is a transcendent force that turned a land full of refugees into a world power brimming with technological wonders.

New York, that strange part-Dutch, part-English, part-Everything-else city, runs on the creativity of the impossible. Starving artists, aspiring actors, failed musicians, flailing poets, real estate mavens without a dime and brokers trading thin air gamble on the impossible. New York always seems on the verge of total anarchy and destruction and yet keeps going on in that strange half-mad creativity.

For Islam, the game is zero sum. If American civilization thrives, then their civilization is shadowed. If people are happy here, then they cannot be happy. If there are two towers in New York, that detracts from the glory of Islamic civilization. Islam is the bitter beggar forever looking to steal what it cannot have, worrying over the imaginary history of its own greatness and cursing the upstarts in the streets of a foreign city for taking the glory was rightfully theirs.

The American who shares his good fortune with the rest of the world cannot understand that there are some people who would rather steal than accept a gift, who would rather destroy than build and who would rather drown the world in darkness than accept someone else’s light.

With some difficulty he might accept the existence of a small number of people who think this way, but an entire civilization built in this mold is too obscene an idea.

As with so many other strange things that wash up in the concrete streets of a strange city, it is easier to leave the mystery unsolved, to let the blanket fall back over the clash of civilizations and go on forward. It is the way that things have always been done in the city and as twin rays of light bisect the sky, they remind New Yorkers of their own fortitude, and not of the enemy waiting outside the light.

Outside a shadow war is waged with drones and hackers, spies and journalists, men in mosques speak quietly of terror and other men listen over the phone. There is little truth in this shadow war, but in some moments the light pierces the darkness and those who have forgotten why we are doing this, remember. And then they remember to forget.

Christian Prayers And Protests Will Get You Arrested In NYC

Zero Tolerance for Christians in New York compared to Occupy Protests that dragged on for weeks.   Christians arrested on site for praying against the ban on churches meeting in public places.

In a sickening proof that Amerika is become a hostile land for Christians who are no longer welcome or permitted their free exercise.  Last Thursday New York City arrested 43 pastors and laypersons who dared to defy the Established Secular Order and PRAYED in protest about the city’s new ban on Christian use of public places for worship services that goes into effect February 12.

Police were ordered to arrest them all immediately for criminal trespass.  Apparently New York has a Zero Tolerance policy if you kneel and pray in public and are a Christian, but if you are a secular anarchist who likes to shut down businesses and bridges, do drugs, rape and rob people – then you and your Occupy Wall Street pals will go unmolested by the Police for weeks and weeks, while the media rages in protest on their behalf if any of those scum are arrested for their disruptive and violent behavior.

 

 

 

 

 

And If you are Muslim you will get to pray in the streets facing Mecca while blocking traffic to call attention to your protests of America:

 

 

 

 

 

 

But if you are Christian, and are protesting for your Constitutional Right of free exercise from being prohibited by law in public places such as schools, streets and public buildings – if you join hands, kneel and pray – why then – you will be arrested with brute force in moments of your defiance to take a knee and pray.

Christians haves deceived themselves into thinking that injustice and persecution of Christians is something that happens only in far away backward countries.

They would be wrong.  Institutionalized persecution – of which this author has personally witnessed and experienced in a land hostile to Christians, is already having a foundation poured beneath our feet and knees.

It makes no difference who you are if you are Christian, police arrested New York City Councilman and pastor Fernando Cabrera, pastor Bill Devlin, and five others on charges of “criminal trespassing.” Their alleged trespass was kneeling and singing two hymns outside the doors of the New York City Law Department.

 

THAT earns you jail time.  But if you are protesting rich people and businesses and support Communism – then you can set up tents and shut down bridges and take over public spaces without so much as a shout against you by police.

But take a knee and pray in front of a public building in New York – you will get to enjoy plastic hand restraints and a ride in a paddy wagon to the local lock up.

Welcome to Amerika 2012 – your hope and change has arrived.

Islam Gives NY and America, The Finger While Putting Up Two Mosques At Ground Zero

8 years after 9-11, surrounding a hole that Jihadists left in New York – Islam gets approval to build 2 mosques near Ground Zero.

In the eyes of Islam, this is their victory.  The Canada Free Press article explains perfectly this exact sentiment.  While an in-depth analysis by Wafa Sultan of the Islamic thought process involved in the establishment of these mosques – should not only frighten Americans to their core – but infuriate them to the middle finger just shoved into their eyes.  And granted no less than by the politicians Americans sent to office.

If the picture above is offensive to you – good – because this is what Islam and our political leaders are giving America, and you should be offended.

A Mosque at Ground Zero Equals Victory

by Wafa Sultan

A new mosque is now being planned in New York near “Ground Zero,” two blocks from where the World Trade Center used to be. This mosque is headed by an Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of the Cordoba Initiative, who proposes to convert the now-shuttered Burlington Coat Factory on Park Place into an Islamic Cultural Center which would contain a mosque.

It is crucial to study the supremacist ideology of Islam and to recognize, for example, that the building of a mosque especially at Ground Zero is viewed by Muslims as a decisive victory over the infidels in Islam’s march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law.

On a daily bases, in so many parts of the world, deadly attacks are perpetrated by Jihadists either against non Muslims or, frequently, against Muslims — especially Muslim women. The terror type of Jihad, however, is only one way for Islamists to accomplish their mission of making the “Kafir,” or infidels, submit to Sharia Law. Another method is, as the author Robert Spencer calls it, an insidious, creeping “Stealth Jihad.”

While Mr. Shahzad is the impatient Jihadist who attempts to destroy the West through terror, there is also the second type of Jihadist, who is much more patient, and who employs the “Stealth Jihad.” The Stealth Jihadis are subtle in their approach and take their time to accomplish the same objective of submitting us all under Islam and under Sharia Law.

Recently, two separate episodes highlight this gloomy reality. The first is the attempted bombing of Times Square by the Pakistani terrorist, Faisal Shahzad, called by Leon de Winter “The Foreclosure Terrorist” from an anchor at CNN who said, “It can be confirmed that his house has been foreclosed in recent years. I mean, one would have to imagine, that brought a lot of pressure and a lot of heartache on that family.”

To someone who grew up in a Muslim country, as I did, this can only be seen as ludicrous. Perhaps there should be a formal Fatwa, or religious edict called the “Foreclosure Jihad.” No doubt, those at Al Azhar University in Cairo – the epicenter of Islamic jurisprudence — might like this idea: It is an effective way to conceal the true narrative of Islam.

According to the Center of the study of Political Islam (www.politicalislam.com), over the last 1400 years, Muslims have murdered roughly 270 million kafirs [non-Muslims]; 60 million Christians, 80 million Hindus, 10 million Buddhists and around 120 million African slaves. Until today, as far as we know, there has not been any official acknowledgement or official apology by any official Islamic organization for these atrocities. This calamity is not a modern day phenomenon. It has been taking place since Islam’s inception 1400 years ago.

This is what Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, a few years ago, said at the Chautauqua Institution in New York:

“Seven centuries before the Declaration of Independence was written Shari’a Law was intended to protect life, religion, property, family and mental well being. This is why I assert that America is in fact a Shari’a compliant state”.

The Imam avoids mentioning that Islamic Sharia allows, among other ruthless practices, to beat women to discipline them, and that Sharia also still sanctions slavery. Is that not a bit different from American set of laws? Does the Imam recommend that the US implement the previous two practices into our system to be a more “Sharia compliant state”?

The Imam also said, in Sydney, Australia, that “The US and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end.”

The declaration of war on the West — as Bin Laden declared initially — was not, bear in mind, based on this “harm” allegedly done to Muslins, but on Hadith, [reports on the sayings and activities of Mohammaed and his companiois] of Mohammed in Al-Buchary:

“I have been ordered to fight and kill all mankind until they say no God except Allah and Mohammed is the prophet of Allah.

This Hadith declares war on non-Muslims — to subjugate them under Islam irrespective of their deeds. If terrorism is caused by the “harm by the West to Muslims,” why then do Sunni Muslims burn Shi’ite mosques in countries like Pakistan and Iraq? Why is it that Islamists have been throwing acid on the faces of women in countries such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Algeria and Iran? Are these brutalities also committed because the West harms Muslims?

Further, we all know that while Muslims can build mosques and practice their religion freely in the West, non-Muslims are forbidden to do the same in Islamic countries. How harmful to them is that?

This Imam also stated:

“The Islamic method of waging war is not to kill innocent civilians. But it was Christians in World War II who bombed civilians in Dresden and Hiroshima, neither of which were military targets.”

As for women, the Imam says that, with regard to the role of women, and the education of women in most Muslim countries, that women are very active and involved, and that misogyny exists primarily in the tribal countries of the Arabian Peninsula.

This is a shameful and deceitful portrayal. The status of women in the Muslim countries is a misfortune that the world has overlooked for centuries, and for which it is now paying a high price for having ignored.

“A God Who Hates,” the book I wrote last year, is dedicated to the memory of my niece Mayyada, who cut her life short by committing suicide to escape the hellish marriage imposed upon her under Islamic Sharia Law. There are currently millions of women who experience similar unimaginable suffering, all sanctioned under the tacit approval of Sharia. Their accounts are untold stories of unthinkable oppression and misery.

Now we have a Muslim Imam, who aspires to implement Sharia in the West, and who is a slick and eloquent speaker disguised as a “moderate” Muslim. He uses Taqiyya, the Islamic concept which calls for Muslims to lie to the enemy and deceive him based on Quran 3:28, to fool non-Muslims and those who are gullible or ignorant, and who play right into his hands.

While Feisal Rauf opposes Faisal Shahzas’s terror strategy, both share the same objective of subjugating the West under Islam and under Sharia Law – both Faisals are two sides of the same coin.

As for the majority of our U.S. population, they are basically being kept in the dark as words like “Islamic terror” and “Jihad” are not anymore considered by the establishment to be acceptable.To inform the public of the perils of the Jihadists’ doctrine is politically incorrect.

So here is their formula: Muslims try to kill or subvert non-Muslims through treason, while the infidels avoid naming the doctrine and the theology from which Muslims’ worldview emanates. By these means, non-Muslims permit radical Muslims to carry their agenda into the advanced stage of coercing us to capitulate.

The so called “progressives” and proponents of interfaith dialogue in the media, in academia, and in our government cannot accept that in Islam’s supremacist ideology, there is no moral relativism. They cannot accept that when it comes to Islam, multiculturalism is a one-way street that serves Islam — and the interests of Islam alone. There is no inclusion of other “ways,” or cultures supported in the Quran. Even to allow or accommodate other viewpoints can cost a Muslim his or her life.

Under freedom of expression, Muslims, like any other group, have the right to criticize others. But where is the line drawn between freedom of expression and an act of sedition? Where is the acknowledgment that Islam teaches that Sharia Law supersedes all other laws – including the U.S. Constitution?

Here in the U.S., we are not learning a single lesson from the Islamization of Europe: as of now, we are moving in the same direction by the same “Stealth” tactics being used all over Europe — infiltration into the highest levels of government; indoctrination of the public through misinformation; double standards provided by media outlets; intimidation, and threats, both veiled and public.

Thomas Mann, a German writer once said: “Tolerance is a crime when applied to evil.” At the time, Mr. Mann was referring to the rise of Nazism in Germany. His statement is a wake-up call to us today, it speaks the truth. We must have the courage and commitment to act against these encroachments if freedom is to survive.
