Stephen Coughlin: Los Angeles conference on, “Can Islam coexist with Western Civilization” August 21 2016

A portion of Stephen’s presentation was concerning a specific event in Warsaw. Below, is an edited version of that portion of the OSCE conference on Islamophobia and hate speech which helps a great deal in understanding much of the substance of Maj. Coughlin’s presentation.

Did someone say CVE? New FBI Counter Extremism Site Fails to Mention Islam. Worse, ‘Islamism’

Nazis, Nazism. A distinction to subtle for my tired brain. But there you have it. One is used to the idea that our various governments have created a false dichotomy of Islam, the alleged religion of peace which we could all learn a great deal from, which is why they haven’t advanced in 1400 years except for things forced on them by us, or that they stole. and ‘Islamism’ the artifice created to try and explain to people why when muslims do things purely islamic that they justify with the most authoritative quotes from the most recognized scriptures and which is utterly abhorrent to us, we can attribute it to a hijacked version of islam called, ‘Islamism’, which never occurred before in the 1400 barbaric and ruthless years of islamic history.

The FBI has launched a new website to counter extremism, but it has been stripped of references to Islamist extremism or Islam.

Titled “Don’t be a Puppet,” the site tries to deconstruct some of the motivating factors that lead people into extremism. It’s aimed for use in high schools or other programs for teenagers.

The website was originally slated to launch in November 2015, but did not, following criticisms from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). At the time, CAIR expressed concerns about a new FBI “countering violent extremism” (CVE) online program that would make teachers an extension of law enforcement and may stigmatize and increase bullying of Muslim students.”

Several community organizations told The New York Times they thought the website “focuses almost entirely on Islamic extremism.”

The site was then put on hold, eventually launching in February 2016.

According to The Clarion Project, where the above text comes from, the FBI site was scrubbed of Islam due to Muslim Brotherhood pressure via CAIR. But for those that haven’t seen Stephen Coughlin’s material on the Obama policy of ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ it may shed a little more thorough light on why there is no mention of the most significant motive for contemporary terror by a very large factor at this time.

To understand how the CVE may factor into this at least as much as CAIR does, here is Stephen Coughlin explaining what it is and how it works.

X files makes odd symbolic conflation

As a person with a stunning lack of religious understanding and background, there is a lot that is lost to me when I observe pop-culture or read a lot of classical and even much modern literature. Huge aspects of European history and art are inexorably intertwined with aspects of religious thought and iconography most of which, I miss absolutely, even when its put right in my face.

This is my loss.

But it does help to explain why I missed something rather jaw dropping in the newest episode of the X-Files. The show that never misses an opportunity to show its progressive values and its culturally Marxist agenda, even in the old series, as entertaining as it often was, and even more in the new one.

The episode was about muslim suicide bombers. So far, not very PC. The guys who did the attack at the start did all the right prayers and looked the part of the muslim terrorist although not as much as their coreligionists in the connected cell later in the show.

Many died in the attack but one of the bombers survived. Now I don’t want to spoil this episode for anyone who wishes to see it, so I won’t give away much more than that except to the extent needed to show something which was brought to my attention by someone considerably more scholarly than I am, and much better versed in Christian symbolism.

At one point, the surviving bomber’s mother comes to the hospital to visit her son. She has a head cloth on but not one I had ever seen on a muslim whatsoever. (She also spoke about his act in a decidedly un-islamic way)

mary like head cloth

Is this an islamic head-cloth?

During a sort of dream sequence, Mulder sees the suicide bomber, one who had survived a mass murder and mass destruction of property in order to destroy infidels, in this way:

ead terrrist as Jesus 2

Suicide bomber in his mother’s arms

I found this somewhat uncomfortable imagery but wasn’t sure exactly why. Disturbing though. It was clearly a loving image of a mother with a martyred son.

And then my scholarly friend pointed this out to me. This is Just one example of a powerful part of Christian iconography, The Pieta.

One of many examples of The Pieta

Yep. The X files had found a way to conflate a mass murder for the purpose of killing unbelievers and implementing the sharia on all survivors, with Jesus Christ, the Christian avatar of God and prince of peace. They tried to make people feel like those who believe in “koran 9:5

And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

are the same as those who believe Matthew 5:44-45

44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

And once again, the aggressor becomes the victim. The killer of the innocent is seen in Islamic terms. as a ‘martyr’, (which frankly is the most disgusting possible application of that word) The Islamic world view is spread to an audience of millions with a revival of one of the hippest shows of the 90s. Is this the CVE in action? Or is it the kind of accidental cultural Marxism as Bill Whittle explains, is the new-normal thanks to a generation or two of university inculcation.

Thank you very much SC. and GoV. for your insights on this.

Stephen Coughlin’s new paper on the CVE, ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ strategy for winning the war for Islam

This is dense reading but as this site refers to the CVE very often, and as its an excellent frame of refrence to have when watching the news, trying to figure out why you simply cannot find certain factual things online which you know took place and used to be online but you can find all sorts of things that are, or should be illegal perhaps, this offers a model of understanding. But its a lot bigger than that as well

You can download it here.

I will also add it to the sidebar as a permanent place to make it available.

In honour of the title of the paper:
