Lock and Load is back after a bout with real life. I'll be posting on a random basis for the time being and will start with an outstanding item by my good friends at Pigazette.com. I'm assuming this screed is by the publisher "Porcus" as it's got his prints all over it. The article nails the Muslim Brotherhood's usurpation of the Middle East riots for "democracy" and Western leaders blind acceptance that the Brotherhood is a "moderate" outfit. After the dust has settled and the Islamists have taken over who knows how many Arabic dictatorships, the West will pay with a wave of terrorism never seen before. Once ensconced, the Brotherhood will, by it's example inspire Muslims everywhere to attack the infidels in a global Jihad.
Enough of my ranting, here's a great insight into the phenonon of modern day Islamic terror attacks on the West as only Pigazette could put it.
EDIT: I have been corrected, the credit for this fine piece of writing belongs to Hambo, Porcus' partner in crime.
DANGEROUS DEMOCRACY DELUSIONS
“Democratic” in its original meaning [refers to] unlimited majority rule . . . a social system in which one’s work, one’s property, one’s mind, and one’s life are at the mercy of any gang that may muster the vote of a majority at any moment for any purpose. – Ayn Rand
Two, seemingly unrelated, Beltway Bozo brainfarts are in the process of combining into a critical mass. Once the ensuing chain reaction runs its course, it will destroy Israel, and make this land conceived in liberty an easier target for our Jihadikaze enemies.
One brainfart has been with us for at least a decade, probably much longer. It went ‘viral’ in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attack on America, when nobody had the balls to state the obvious: Islam which motivates our enemies is, by it’s very nature, incompatible, with our individual liberty. Unfortunately, everyone inside the beltway, agreed, when President Georg W. Bush stated emphatically, that ‘we are not at war with Islam’. What he never stated...what the Beltway Bozos have never admitted, is the incontrovertible fact that Islam, driven by significant portion of its adherents, is at war with us. It's at war with our inalienable individual liberty.
The people in positions of power, especially those put there by the Obama Regime, refuse to confront the critical role that Islam plays in our ongoing war with Jihadikaze rat bastards. In 2011, this willful myopia means that the people who should be paying attention to our homegrown Jihadikazes - Islamikazes like the Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood murderer - are too busy trying to blame these home front attacks on a crappy childhood, rampant Islamophobia among We the People, and/or some undiagnosed mental breakdown. They blame these home front attacks on anything, and everything except the real cause: Islam. Because of this willful myopia, we are fighting a war with our eyes closed, against an enemy whom we’re not allowed to name. It’s the express lane to our defeat and, ultimately, our destruction.
By itself, our 'Islam is the enemy of our liberty' blind spot dooms us to an eventual defeat. That defeat looms larger, these days, due to the second brainfart, which has reached epidemic proportions, within both of our political clans. The name of this brainfart is reflected in the title for this rant: Dangerous Democracy Delusions.
We hear it from The One.
We hear it from the fossil he defeated in the 2008 general election.
We hear it from the Elected Tormentors who spend too much time in the Washington D. C. Twilight Zone and too little time in objective reality.
We hear it from MSM Barack suckers.
We hear it too often and I, for one, am sick of it.
I’ll f-ing explode if I hear Barry, the MSM Barack suckers, Juan McCain, or anyone else, gush about resurgence of Democracy in North Africa and other parts of the Islamikaze world. This week (Sunday March 27, 2011), McCain betrayed his profound ignorance, with this statement:
"This is a moment of historic proportions, and this will give us a moment of opportunity to help with the spread of democracy."
Is Juan on crack? Has he self-medicated his brain into neutral? Is it even remotely possible that he doesn’t know the difference between Democracy and Individual Liberty? Does this fool really equate Democracy and Individual Liberty, when truth is that they’re worlds apart:
The American system is not a democracy. It is a constitutional republic. A democracy, if you attach meaning to terms, is a system of unlimited majority rule; the classic example is ancient Athens. And the symbol of it is the fate of Socrates, who was put to death legally, because the majority didn’t like what he was saying, although he had initiated no force and had violated no one’s rights.
Democracy, in short, is a form of collectivism, which denies individual rights: the majority can do whatever it wants with no restrictions. In principle, the democratic government is all-powerful.
Democracy is a totalitarian manifestation; it is not a form of freedom .
In places like Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Libya, Democracy means deposing one kind of tyranny - the tyranny of an autocrat - and putting another kind of tyranny - the liberty nuking tyranny of Sharia - in its place. The spread of Democracy, in these Islamikaze infested, Sharia-venerating, nations is not a cause for celebration. Instead, it’s a cause for concern. McCain’s beloved ‘Democracy’ revival is the resurgence of mob rule and this mob is more likely to venerate Ayatollah Khomeini than Thomas Jefferson.
McCain, et al, aren’t the only ones suffering from these Dangerous Democracy Delusions. It’s the prevailing - until recently - editorial policy at the New York Times. This week, the realization that mob rule is invariably ugly took the NYT Moonbats by surprise. Belatedly, they took a close look at the people who will fill the power vacuum that was created by Mubarak’s departure from the scene. During the uprising and afterwards - until Libya took center stage - rational adults warned that the Muslim Brotherhood would be the new rulers of Egypt. That, everyone with a functioning synapse knew, would mean an Egyptian society that bears an uncomfortable resemblance to Iran and Saudi Arabia. The only ones who couldn't, wouldn't, see it worked at the Times.
This week, the New York Times, looked at the results of the Egyptian elections, and said ‘Yup, it certainly looks like the Muslim Brotherhood won the elections. Who would have seen THAT one coming?' Of course, they’re still in Sharia denial, concerning Egypt, but, eventually, even those NYT will smell the Sharia coffee. Unhappily, the NYT isn’t the alone, when it comes to deliberately ignoring the truth about events in the Middle East.
Unwilling to learn from the events in Egypt, the usual suspects - MSM and Elected Tormentors alike - willfully ignored the fun facts about the ‘Democracy seekers’ in Libya. The primary fun fact is that, like the Democracy seekers in other Islamikaze nations, the Libyan insurgents are in cahoots with Osama bin Laden and his al-qaeda Jihadikazes. It means that The One has our men and women in uniform aiding and abetting Jihadikazes who spent quality time, trying to kill American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
If you think these al-qaeda affiliates are ‘over it’ now and gung ho for Uncle Sam and liberty, wake up! In the early days of the rebellion in Libya, the ‘Democracy seekers’ rewarded Osama and his pals, by giving them a lot of the weaponry Libya’s reigning tyrant amassed in his armories. That means, while the USAF keeps the rat bastards safe, in Libya, the Democracy seekers are repaying us, by sending weapons to Afghanistan, where they will be used against our men and women on the front lines.
If you think this al-qaeda presence among Libya’s Democracy seekers is all in my mind, get over it. During his testimony at a U.S. Senate hearing on March 29, 2011, Admiral James Savridis, NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, who is also the commander of U.S. European Command reported that ‘intelligence has shown "flickers" of potential Al Qaeda in opposition groups. Given the preliminary nature of the intelligence, there’s no way to determine how many of them are seeking Democracy:
"At this point, I don't have detail sufficient to say there is a significant Al Qaeda presence." (Fox News)
Did the Obama Regime agree? Nope, but they didn’t issue a blanket denial, either. Instead, the Hilldebeast, Secretary of State Hillary, sidestepped the issue, stating that Uncle Sam is belatedly, "getting to know" the Democracy seekers. If there’s a link to Osama, the Regime either doesn’t know, or chooses not to know, about it.
I don’t expect much from Juan McCain, but, since he spouted off about this ‘moment of historic proportions’ he should pull his head out of his ass and try to get it right. The inconvenient truth about the ‘Democracy’ sweeping the Islamikaze world is downright ugly, because, when the dust settles, and the last tyrant is evicted, there will be an unbroken string of ‘little Irans’ in North Africa. Our friends, the Israelis will find themselves with ‘little Irans’ on all sides. It would be nice if Juan McCain tried to wrap his mind around THAT, before he started flapping his gums about this tidal wave of Democracy that is sweeping across the Islamikaze world.
I wonder if this RINO fossil will have the nads to, probably long after it’s all said and done, admit that, while it’s spiffy that all the tyrants are gone, it’s not spiffy that one kind of tyranny was supplanted by another. I wonder if he’ll have the guts to admit that the willful refusal to name our enemy played a critical role in transforming the Middle East into series of 7th century outposts of tyranny, all of which use Iran as their role model. The answer to all of the above - assuming, of course, that he even admits the truth to himself - is probably not.
With or without The One ensconced in the Oval Office, Uncle Sam would be hard pressed to control the flow of events that are transforming the Islamikaze world. On that score, we are, unhappily, in a lose-lose situation, where all our options suck. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing that needs to be done.
We could, and should, do what we can to prepare for this radicalized, terminally hostile Islamikaze world that’s headed our way.
We could, and should, for example, strengthen our ties with Israel, a country which might be, our last, best, hope to neutralize the destructive power of all the ‘little Irans’ that are popping up in their immediate neighborhood.
Finally, we could, should, and must limit the power of these ‘little Irans’ by unshackling our domestic energy reserves, taking the ‘oil weapon’ out of the enemy’s hands.
Will The One, Juan McCain, and/or our other Democracy Deluded Elected Tormentors wake up before it’s too late? Not of their own free will, but, they might get with the program, if We the People assert our authority and demand that they wake up, before it’s too late. The next move is ours, We the People Sparky, and the time to make it is NOW.
I'm not opposed, in theory, or in practice, to letting Libyans, Syrians, etc. name their own poison. If, when they determine their nation's fate, they trade autocratic tyranny for Sharia-based tyranny, so be it. I'm not saying that Uncle Sam should try use his military to stop them. I am saying that the willfully myopic meatheads inside the beltway need to open their eyes and see the world for what it is, instead of leaving their eyes shut and assuming the world is the way that they want it to be. Wake up and smell the coffee? You better believe it, Sparky.
Parting shot: If you want to see Islamikaze Democracy in all its splendor, this image from J.O.E. tells you everything need to know.
No doubt, Socrates would find these rage-a-holics and their antics chillingly familiar. When it comes to mob rule and its zeal for murdering those who say what they don't want to hear, not much has changed since he died of democracy in 399 BC.
