Taking an opportunity to write about something a few degrees away from the bullseye today. The degree of important horror perpetrated on the kinder peoples of the world by Islam and leftists tend to trump and occult the subtle stuff even if the subtle material can be more meaningful in many ways than the attacks and rape gangs.
A couple of examples of the sort of stories which the original focus of this site was intended to be about, might include the story today of a muslim in Constantinople who punched a man for smoking during ramadan so hard that he was hospitalized for 9 days with a bleeding brain. The police let the religious muslim go after questioning.
And why is that story so important?
Because it is thought of as a crime when in fact it is an act of war.
A crime is something an individual does to advantage himself unfairly by exploiting a weakness in the system. And he knows it.
An act of war is intended to destroy the system and replace it with something else that the people don’t want and have no choice in. It also has no direct advantage to the attacker as a rule, unless its a classic Islamic war involving looting and sex slaves.
The attack on the smoker, like the attack on the man drinking water in Morocco during Ramadan are acts of war.
And these kinds of attacks take place all over the West. This is how sharia spreads and our civilization dies.
This next item is a lot more subtle however.
A new Catholic party has started up in France. They have influence as they managed to get massive amounts of people on the street a few years back to oppose the redefining of marriage to include same sex couples.
But the government media complex in France has labeled them to be the equivalent or worse of the Islamic State.
This can be read a lot of ways. But I find it to be an example of how the left uses lack of nuance as a rhetorical weapon.
Lets look at a news report from a self supporting and fair and honest French station. One of the last ones left anywhere:
Personally, as the expression goes, I do not have a dog in this fight. I prefer a secular state with laws based on our Greco-Judeo-Christian heritage. Where non-political religion can be practiced and espoused freely. But to compare this Catholic and traditionally French party with the Islamic State says a great deal more about the socialist government of France than it does about this party.
