Juxtaposition

Islam.

For 90-odd percent of its adherents, it may well be a religion of peace.

But they seem to have other attitudes that bear some examination.

For example:

This hatred of early’80’s country-pop star Judy Kay “Juice” Newton…

…is perplexing to outsiders.

  1. But a large majority prefer Sharia over any democratic government.

    Which in the US makes them traitors.

  2. Preference is a matter of one’s own conscience, and is covered by the First Amendment, along with Catholics who believe Jesuit rule would be peachy, Democrats who advocate a Parliament, Hillaroids who want to abolish the Electoral College and anarcho-libertarians who’d like to close down the entire government.

    It’s only if they act on that preference by forcing their will on the rest of us and our Constitution that they’re “traitors” / invaders.

    I personally don’t care if they prefer something different. I don’t even care if they do their personal transaction – Muslim-to-Muslim contracts, Muslim marriages – according to Sharia. Long as they keep it to themselves and never lift a physical finger to impose it on the rest of us.

  3. On the anniversary of Iran´s 1979 Islamic Revolution, which saw the ousting of the former US-backed House of Pahlavi, a flood of protesters headed towards Tehran´s Azadi (Freedom) Square with Iranian flags, celebrating the rule of the current clerical establishment. Some also carried effigies of Trump, as well as banners reading “Death to America,”

    What was that about ROP? If 0bumbler were in office, he would have attended this rally as a sign of solidarity. And toured uranium enrichment facilities, you know, to see how the money he gave them were being spent. Actually, I think sHrillary would have attended as well.

  4. You understand that as soon as they have the numbt ers they will act on it.

    The Constitution is not a suicide pact.

    Can you name any Catholics who prefer Jesuit rule (whatever the hell that is) over the US Constitution. If you can the FBI ought to be monitoring them.

  5. read still the best hope. Islamism, Leftism, and Americanism are battling now for world values in the 21st century. Only 1 will win. Also Mitch your numbera you give are depressingly optimistic. I’d put the absolute highest number of peaceful Muslims at 80%. 15% support ISIS and the amount of them that believe death is ok for apostates is downright scary.

  6. And the vast majority believe it is appropriate to kill anyone, muslim or not, who criticizes Mohammad.

    Let’s see the First Amendment protect you from that point of view.

  7. I haven’t heard of Juice Newton in years. I see by Wikipedia that she’s still around and released an album a few years ago.

  8. Either Miss Newton, or Orenthal James Simpson, no?

    But I can certainly see the animosity towards a woman whose major activity has been polo outside of her singing career.

    Seriously, it’s been a while since, ahem, the stability of the country or the world was threatened by the Jesuits or Hasidim, if I remember correctly. So I don’t exactly see what all that’s about.

  9. Either Miss Newton, or Orenthal James Simpson, no?

    See! Proof positive muslims are tolerant folks who do not discriminate!

  10. You know nothing of substance about Islam, or who does or does not welcome Sharia law.

    And Christian terrorism is a real thing, one associated with right wing domestic terrorism.

    A few examples:
    Terrorism scholar Aref M. Al-Khattar has listed The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord (CSA), Defensive Action, the Montana Freemen, and some “Christian militia” as groups that “can be placed under the category of far-right-wing terrorism” that “has a religious (Christian) component”.

    In 1996 three men—Charles Barbee, Robert Berry and Jay Merelle—were charged with two bank robberies and bombings at the banks, a Spokane newspaper, and a Planned Parenthood office in Washington State. The men were anti-Semitic Christian Identity theorists who believed that God wanted them to carry out violent attacks and that such attacks would hasten the ascendancy of the Aryan race.

    In 2011, analyst Daryl Johnson of the United States Department of Homeland Security said that the Hutaree Christian militia movement possessed more weapons than the combined weapons holdings of all Islamic terror defendants charged in the US since the September 11 attacks.

    And of course there is the KKK and their religious ideology.

    I could add more of these, but I doubt your mind is open to facts. You seem bent on spreading ignorance and religious intolerance.

  11. Y’know who else was an avid polo player?
    Walt Disney.
    Yep, good ol’ Uncle Walt. Loved polo.
    When he was in his 60s, Disney wanted to fix a neck problem caused by an old polo injury. In the pre-op check they found his lung cancer. He was dead two months later.
    Coincidence? I think not.
    Knowing this, Juice Newton still married a polo coach.
    The woman is carrying a heavy karmic load.

  12. In my youth, I spent some time studying at a Benedictine monastery. The Benedictines know who The Enemy is and it’s not Satan. It’s the damned Jesuits.

  13. DG,

    I’m going to break with my policy of not publishing you until you answer my legitimate and, as re your “points”, invalidating questions to answer this particular little written turd. This doesn’t constitute a relaxation of my policy – you still have 20-odd posts in moderation. I bet you didn’t know that, did you?

    You WILL respond to this or your posts will start disappearing from moderation.

    “You know nothing of substance about Islam, or who does or does not welcome Sharia law.”

    I knew more about Islam when I was 22 than you know now, or ever will. And I always will know more about it than you, because when I learn something, I do more than google up what “Think””Progress” said. I’d welcome the chance to prove it.

    “And Christian terrorism is a real thing, one associated with right wing domestic terrorism.”

    You keep saying this. It’s a faith-based statement not borne out in actual data recognized outside the fever swamp.

    “Terrorism scholar Aref M. Al-Khattar has listed The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord (CSA), Defensive Action, the Montana Freemen, and some “Christian militia” as groups that “can be placed under the category of far-right-wing terrorism” that “has a religious (Christian) component”.”

    Good lord. So f****ng what? They are “groups” that fit a category. What have they done in the past 20 years?

    Nothing! They are shadows of what they were even in the early nineties. You are babbling.

    “In 1996 three men—Charles Barbee, Robert Berry and Jay Merelle—were charged with two bank robberies”

    What was that year, again?

    1996?

    21 years ago?

    Back when there were “right wing” extremist groups?

    You have nothing more recent.

    “In 2011, analyst Daryl Johnson of the United States Department of Homeland Security said that the Hutaree Christian militia movement possessed more weapons than the combined weapons holdings of all Islamic terror defendants charged in the US since the September 11 attacks.”

    a) Care to show us his data? No?

    b) Oh, yeah. The Hutaree. So – you’re saying that the “Hutaree” owned things they had every legal right to own, and did nothing illegal with them? Because as you’d recall if you had even the most remote sense of curiosity, the feds’ “domestic terror” case against the “Hutaree” collapsed faster than, well, every case you’ve ever tried to make on my blog.

    “And of course there is the KKK and their religious ideology.”

    And the KKK has fewer members than some bowlings leagues today. Big whoop.

    “I could add more of these, but I doubt your mind is open to facts.”

    My mind is open to any factual, logical case.

    You have never made one. Ever.

    ” You seem bent on spreading ignorance and religious intolerance.”

    Complete bullshit, and I’ll tell you so to your face.

    Hey – when is the federal “clawback” suit going to confiscate Salem Twin Cities? The one you told me your neighbor, the world-famous lawyer, said was inevitably going to get us all frog-walked into custody?

    Sound off, ma’am. Your ignorance and bigotry are showing.

  14. By the way, DG? The post wasn’t about Islam. It was about the misspelling (by the gentleman in the photo, who wished death upon Ms. Newton, Mr. Simpson, or Jews, for reasons I”m sure had nothing to do with bigotry, nosirreebob.

    Respond. Now.

  15. DG
    it is a marked (but not unexpected) dishonesty on your part to lump the KKK in with other supposed “right-wing” groups.
    The KKK began and continued to be until less than a decade ago, the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party.
    YOU own them girl they’re your people!

  16. Dog hasn’t gotten any better. I’d just block her entirely and be done with it. She doesn’t contribute anything to the forum other than bile.

  17. To illustrate how far the KKK has fallen, I saw an article noting the death of one Mr. Ancona, who claimed to be some rank or other in the Klan in Missouri. I know nothing about his death, but I did look up the ethnic origins of the name “Ancona”, and it turns out that it’s common among Italians, especially Jews of Italian origin.

    I’m reminded of Cleavon Little for some reason, except Little’s character in Blazing Saddles knew the history of the Klan and Ancona apparently did not. The whole sad mess suggests that the Klan is about as capable of real terror as your local group of Dungeons and Dragons players.

  18. the KKK has about as much political power today as the CPUSA. Not to be confused with the Democratic party who is just the CPUSA light.

  19. if you were to foolishly attend a modern day KKK meeting its a safe bet that the rabblerousers in the group are undercover BATFE and FBI agents – plus there’ll be a couple of IRS & DEA informants.
