Here’s a good article by Eric Metaxas: “Blaming Christians for Orlando?

Well worth taking the time to read particularly the conclusion. See the rest on my Apologetica page.

-European Women to Blame for Provoking Muslim Immigrant Rapists?

by Dr. D ~ June 24th, 2016

EurabiaMap

UPDATE: Here’s a story closer to home in the USA where immigrant Muslim boys who raped a 5 year old girl are being protected by an Obama administration U.S. Attorney:

Idaho ‘rape’: Obama prosecutor ‘silencing Americans with threats of arrest’

PC European authorities are blaming European women for encouraging and provoking Muslim immigrant rapists? Here’s the story from PJ Media:

According to FrontPage Magazine editor Jamie Glazov:

Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker’s response to the assaults under her watch [1,000 German women were sexually molested and raped by Muslim migrants] has been to reprimand the victims, suggesting that they had asked for it.

Reker has vowed to make sure that women will change their behavior, so that they don’t provoke Muslims to sexually assault them again. There will now be published “online guidelines” for women to read so they can prepare themselves …

Oslo Professor of Anthropology Dr. Unni Wikan’s solution for the high incidence of Muslims raping Norwegian women is not for the rapists to be punished, but for Norwegian women to “take their share of responsibility” for the rapes because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative.

Norwegian women, she has counseled, “must realize that we live in a Multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.”

<Read the whole article>

Response: So PC multiculturalism is running amok in Europe with the coming of 10’s of thousands of Muslim immigrants. But according to some ‘authorities,’ the Muslims should not be expected to change their way of life or even be arrested for breaking the law. No. It is the Western women who should change their clothing and never be alone but have a close male relative or companion with them? No wonder the Brits voted to leave the Union if this is an example of the current crazy thinking among bureaucrats on the continent.

What concerns me is the fact that we can expect similar problems here in America  with the infusion of thousands of Middle Eastern immigrants. But comparable PC reactions by police and authorities in America should not be tolerated.                 *Top

-Question: “Did Islam Play a Role in Orlando Terror Attack?” -Some Interesting Responses

by Dr. D ~ June 21st, 2016

Considering that the terrorist himself named Allah, Islam’s prophet, and ISIS in his tirade while he killed 49 people one would naturally expect folks to understand that Islam had some kind of role to play in the Orlando attack. However, when Filmmaker Ami Horowitz interviewed folks on the streets of a New York City neighborhood that’s known to be a progressive conclave: Williamsburg in Brooklyn, no one wanted to support the obvious (See video above).

Horowitz had one simple question:

“Did Islam play a role in the Orlando terror attack?”

Here are some of the ‘interesting’ responses:

“I don’t think it had much to do with Islam, to be honest,” one woman said. “I think it was another situation of a lonely, deranged male.” She later added, “People are not evil, this is ignorance.”

“I don’t think it’s fair to say Islam played a role in this,” a man answered.

“I don’t think it was an Islamic crime,” another guy said.

“I don’t think it was a terrorist,” a different man said, later adding that “guns way more than Islam” are the real culprits.

One guy replied that he places blame ”more on the Republicans than Islam,” and the first woman in the clip added that she blames “100 percent the Republicans.”…

“If you’re gonna blame Islam, you gotta blame all the religions,” one woman argued. When Horowitz shot back asking if she even includes Buddhists in the mix, she said yes.

<Read the entire article>

Response: Wow. So Islam has no role but guns and Republicans are the real problems? Incredible! Obviously the Obama and media PC propaganda that ‘Islam is the religion of peace’ is actually accepted by some Americans.              *Top

-Obama Administration’s ‘Edited’ Orlando Tape Controversy

by Dr. D ~ June 21st, 2016

The Obama administration continues with its narrative that Islam has nothing at all to do with radical terrorist events like Orlando, it’s all about guns. In keeping with that view the Justice Department published a highly edited transcript between the Orlando terrorist and a 911 operator with all references to ‘ISIS’ and ‘Allah’ blocked out:

Orlando Police Dispatcher (OD): Emergency 911, this is being recorded.
Shooter (OM): In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficial [in Arabic]
OD: What?
OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [in Arabic]. I let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings.
OD: What’s your name?
OM: My name is I pledge of allegiance to [omitted].
OD: Ok, What’s your name?
OM: I pledge allegiance to [omitted] may God protect him [in Arabic], on behalf of [omitted].
OD: Alright, where are you at?
OM: In Orlando.
O
D: Where in Orlando?
[
End of call.]

On Sunday,  Attorney General Loretta Lynch appeared on a number of TV news programs announcing that the administration would be releasing partial transcripts on Monday with some references blocked out:

"What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda," Lynch said. "We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State]."

Obviously the administration thought that the media would go along and support them in this farce but for once they were wrong and the whole thing blew up in their faces. By Monday afternoon they were forced to release a less redacted version:

View image on Twitter

Response: Notice that the newest version may include a reference to ISIS but still blocks the terrorist’s obvious reference to ‘Allah’ of Islam. As it stands, a ‘Christian’ could have made the first statement about ‘God.’ In fact I am quite sure if the terrorist claimed to be a Christian and said that his actions were ‘in the name of Jesus Christ’ we would have a full and complete transcript. Not only that, but the full blame would go to ‘homophobic’ conservative Christians that ‘cling to their guns and religion.’

Even though the terrorist himself proclaimed an allegiance to ISIS and referenced Allah and the prophet of Islam, the President still maintains that this terrorist event was the actions of an unrelated non-directed single gun toting individual:

"We see no clear evidence that he was directed externally," the president added. "It does appear that at the last minute, he announced allegiance to ISIL. But there is no evidence so far that he was in fact directed by ISIL, and at this stage there’s no direct evidence that he was part of a larger plot."

These people (the President and his administration) are supposed to be among the brightest and smartest in America? ISIS announced last month that all faithful American Muslims should attack non-believing fellow Americans but because there appears to be no ‘direct’ communication between ISIS leaders and the Orlando terrorist this latest terrorist event is unrelated to ISIS and Islam no matter what the terrorist himself said?

Do they really believe this or do they think that Americans are really that stupid? Apparently so, since they continue to maintain the narrative that it has nothing to do with radical Islam and it is all about guns. Forget the fact that box cutters killed over 3,000 on 9/11/2001.              *Top

-The UN Rules Ireland’s Abortion Ban Violates Human Rights?

by Dr. D ~ June 17th, 2016

Pro-life symbol

United Nations human rights committee ruled on June 9th that the Republic of Ireland’s Constitution which bans abortion as cruel, inhuman, and degrading to women and violates human rights. Here’s the story from the Catholic News Agency:

Pro-life groups in Ireland are charging that a United Nations human rights committee contradicted its mission when it ruled that the Republic of Ireland’s laws against abortion violated a woman’s rights.

The ruling’s critics included Niamh Ui Bhriain of Ireland’s Life Institute.

     “Instead of protecting the most vulnerable, the U.N. has chosen, yet again, to champion abortion, and has trampled on the right of people with disabilities,” she said. She charged that the committee “seriously undermined its credibility by rushing to support abortion.”…

     “Their reasoning is so distorted that it has lost all meaning,” she said. “Abortion is inhumane, and the U.N. should seek to find progressive answers to assist women who are told their babies may not live for long after birth.”

The Republic of Ireland’s constitution equally recognizes the right to life of both the mother and her unborn child in its Eighth Amendment, against abortion. Pro-abortion rights lobbyists have targeted the amendment for repeal.

<Read the whole article>

Response: So, not allowing abortions is “cruel and inhuman” but aborting an innocent baby is somehow good and humane? Amazing. Sometimes the UN bureaucrats make no since at all and should be subjected to ridicule and derision. These are the same folks that assigned Saudi Arabia, along with other middle eastern, and communist countries to their ‘civil rights’ commission in the past. Enough said.                  *Top

-Some Are Blaming Christians for the Orlando Attack?

by Dr. D ~ June 16th, 2016

cross-50

Not only is it politically correct to ignore the Islamist ties to terrorism but some on the left are actually blaming Christians for the Orlando terrorist attack.

From the Washington Examiner- “ACLU lawyers blame ‘Christian right,’ GOP for Orlando terrorist attack”:

Christian conservatives are responsible for the mass shooting at a gay bar in Orlando because they "created this anti-queer climate," according to American Civil Liberties Union attorneys.

"You know what is gross — your thoughts and prayers and Islamophobia after you created this anti-queer climate," ACLU staff attorney Chase Strangio tweeted on Sunday morning.

<Read the whole article>

From Mediaite: “After Islamic Terrorist Kills 49, CNN Contributor Focuses on the Real Threat: Christians”:

After a radical Islamic terrorist murdered 49 people in a gay bar Sunday after pledging allegiance to ISIS, liberal CNN and Daily Beast contributor and Sally Kohn took to Twitter to denounce the real villains: Christians.

Sally Kohn Verified account ?@sallykohn

Hey right wing Christians desperately trying to point out that right wing Muslims are more anti-gay than you are: Your guilt is showing!

8:31 AM – 13 Jun 2016

<Read the whole article>

Response: These are just two examples but there are lots more. Some are even criticizing Christians for praying for the victims and contributing blood and aid for Orlando.

I really can’t understand what has happened to America in the last 16 years or so. After 9/11 we seemed to be unified for a while and the churches were even filled for a few Sundays. But now we are attacking each other and blaming everyone and everything except radical Islam which provided the religious and philosophical environment and excuses the terrorist used in killing 49 people and injuring dozens of others.               *Top

-‘Right Wing’ Extremists a Larger Threat to U.S. Than Radical Islamists? Not Anymore!

by Dr. D ~ June 14th, 2016

crescent-50

Last year in June (2015) a popular study by the New America Foundation was touted by the main stream media as proving that domestic “right-wing extremists” and “white supremacists” were a larger threat to the U.S. than radical Islamists.

The so-called study skewed some numbers in the process and came up with 48 killings by right wingers since September 12, 2001 as opposed to ‘only’ 26 by Islamists. The New York Times championed the research with the following article entitled:    “Homegrown Extremists Tied to Deadlier Toll Than Jihadists in U.S. Since 9/11

Well now you can add 50 deaths to the jihadi side of the equation so the score is 76 to 48. Better yet add one more day (September 11, 2001) to the numbers given in the study and there is no comparison at all- 3,082 to 48.

The truth is that the liberal media feels more threated and worried about conservatives and evangelical Christians in particular than any other group including radical Islamists. From the perspective of the MSM, those of us who are conservative Christians, are the ‘real’ enemy and those who claim that radical Muslims might be  problem are ‘Islamophobic.’ The bogus study done last year supports that view. Don’t look for any changes in thinking from the media any time soon regardless of the real numbers or the truth for that matter.

Thanks to the following article for reminding me of last years popular ‘study’ and for putting it in the current context following Orlando: “Orlando jihad massacre explodes widely-touted study claiming “right-wingers” bigger threat than jihadis

It also reminded me that last year in February the Obama administration DHS had a conference where they concluded that the right wing was a far greater domestic threat than ISIS or radical Islamists. They were wrong then and subsequent events continue to expose their PC based and biased faulty thinking.
