April 19, 2007: Islamo-Fascism Awareness Day

Via Dr Rusty “John Doe” Shackleford at The Jawa Report: Video: Totalitarian Islam’s Threat to the West

The full high quality video of the UCLA symposium on Totalitarian Islam’s Threat to the West, a panel discussion featuring Daniel Pipes, Yaron Brook and Wafa Sultan here.

Also, a reminder that this Monday the USC Objectivist club will be showing the movie, “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West”, which features a few personal friends of The Jawa. The public is invited.

On Thursday [April 19, 2007], over 70 universities nation wide will show the same movie as part of “Islamo Fascism Awareness Day”. Full list of universities here.

I am extremely happy to see that my alma mater, Purdue University, is one of the 70.

The Real Agenda of the Imus Controversy – Democrats to Silence Conservatives

Steve Gilbert at the Conservative blog Sweetness and Light highlights in great detail the fascist agenda of the Democrats in the whole Don Imus situation. The hidden agenda in all of this is to shut down Conservative speech. In other words, the American Left is finally showing their true fascist colors.

They gave us a sneak peek when they threatened to revoke ABC’s broadcast license over “The Path to 9/11” mini-series which aired last year. They also give us sneak peeks periodically every time they shout down or throw things at Conservative speakers or rush the stage to shut down Conservative speeches held across the country. The most infamous example is when Leftists at Columbia University rushed the stage when the Minutemen were giving a speech about illegal immigration and shut down the speech. They also are giving us a sneak peek in their efforts to shut down debate about apocalyptic “man caused Global Warming”. Any scientific facts that are presented which counter their theory, they discard and disregard. Any scientist who presents facts and data which counter their theory, they threaten with taking away their funding or they smear them by saying they are paid by oil companies or call them the equivalent of Holocaust deniers. And let us not forget the push for the Democrats to bring back the “Fairness Doctrine”, which they are doing specifically to shut down popular and successful Conservative talk radio. (Thanks to Cory in the comments for the reminder)

And now, taking advantage of the mountain the Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have made out of the molehill of the comments by Don Imus, the Democratic National Committee’s Media Arm is working to censor Conservative voices. This, ladies and gentlemen, is fascism. And it is coming from the Democrat Party. Also, of note, is that David Brock is connected to Hillary Clinton. This is just one more example of what would happen if we allow Democrats to take power in the White House. We will officially become a fascist state.

You will notice that the only people Media Matters calls out for censorship are personalities who are Conservatives. Apparently the racist, sexist, bigoted humor of such Left-wing outlets as Air America, Bill Maher and ABC’s The View are just fine and dandy.

This is not about censorship of racist, sexist and/or bigoted things said on the public airwaves. This is about shutting down thoughts and ideas of those opposed to Liberalism, Socialiasm and Communism. In other words, shutting down Conservatives. Liberals cannot defend their positions with logic and facts, so they have to use fascist tactics to win the debate.

We are heading towards dangerous, Orwellian times ahead if people do not wake up and fight the Left’s plans.

Via Steve Gilbert at Sweetness and Light: DNC’s Media Matters Wants Censorship of Airwaves

Have no fear fellow citizens, Media Matters For America is going to protect you from hearing “hate speech” on your radio.

As many here know, Media Matters is run by the professional propaganda hack David Brock.

Mr. Brock jumps on any chance to try to control free speech in this country. And the “nappy-headed” Imus incident is proving to be no exception.

From Media Matters:

It’s not just Imus

Thu, Apr 12, 2007 6:55pm EST

On April 11, NBC News announced that it was dropping MSNBC’s simulcast of Imus in the Morning in the wake of the controversy that erupted over host Don Imus’ reference to the Rutgers University women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos.” The following day, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves announced that CBS — which owns both the radio station that broadcast Imus’ program and Westwood One, which syndicated the program — has fired Imus and would cease broadcasting his radio show.

But as Media Matters for America has extensively documented, bigotry and hate speech targeting, among other characteristics, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and ethnicity continue to permeate the airwaves through personalities such as Glenn Beck, Neal Boortz, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Michael Smerconish, and John Gibson…

[ . . . ]

And by “a higher standard” and “the fundamentals of journalism” Mr. Brock means barring the expression of any opinion that differs from his own — or more precisely, from the Democrat National Committee’s doctrine.

For while most people around here know that Media Matters is largely bankrolled by the self-confessed Nazi helper, convicted insider trader and fugitive from justice George Soros, it is also backed and run by top Democrats.

Go read the whole thing. It should anger you and make you sick to your stomach to know just how fascist is the Left in this country and their true evil plans they have in the works for America.

It is Time to Lay the Hammer Down on the Democrats’ Shadow Presidency

I posted about the Democrats’ lies concerning their trip to Syria here: Democrats are LYING About Madame Pelosi’s Trip to Syria

I originally found this article in the comments section of a post at LGF and now see that Matt Burden at Blackfive posted it as well. It is an excellent read and I am glad that it is getting prominent attention. It is high time the Administration fought back against the treasonous behavior of the Democrats. Their conducting of their own foreign policy is illegal and unconstitutional.

You will also notice that the Democrats are more concerned with embarrassing and defeating the Bush Administration rather than embarrassing and defeating America’s enemies. To the Democrats, the only enemies are in the Bush Administration.

Via Steve Shippert at Congressman Proudly Claims Syria Trip ‘Led To Embarrassment’

Enough. It is time to lay the hammer down and put an end to what has been referred to even by the Washington Post as the ‘shadow presidency’. Regardless of what carefully chosen words have been used thus far by participants in explaining their mission in visiting with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, Congressman Tom Lantos makes their end-game abundantly clear in an interview he gave to Assad’s regime-controlled Syrian Arab News Agency. But, with teeth fully clenched, this is not a game, nor is it an election campaign tour. Brace yourself for the text in full.

Washington, (SANA)- Democratic Member of the US. House of Representatives and Chairman of the United States House Committee on Foreign Affaires Tom Lantos has underlined that Syria vehemently believes in the dialogue in its relations with the US and in dealing with the issues. In an interview on Tuesday, Lantos described the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Damascus as important to open dialogue channels with it as saying: “The visit expressed in a marvelous way interests of the US, that led to embarrassment of the current US administration which has closed doors for dialogue with Syria.”

Any questions? But Lantos continues…

“President Bashar al-Assad strongly encourages the continuation of the Syrian-American dialogue,” Lantos added.

Well, you bet Assad “strongly encourages the continuation of the Syrian-American (read: American Congressional) dialogue.” Lantos, Pelosi and all others from both sides of the aisle are a gold mine for the state sponsor of terrorism. But wait, there’s more…

Lantos expressed desire to visit Damascus once more and that he will not comply with the policy of the US President George W. Bush regarding it. [All emphasis added.]

Again, any questions?

Go read it all.
