Why is this not considered an act of war?

The Islamist regime of Recip Erdogan in Turkey is clearly using 4th generation warfare against its neighbors in Europe:

An explosive report has revealed that close associates of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and officials of his AKP Party are funding and arming criminal gangs in Germany. This information reportedly was leaked by German intelligence to several media outlets, which subsequently published the allegations…

In response to this week’s media reports, State Office for the Protection of the Constitution chairperson Burkhard Freier described the biker gang as a “paramilitary organization.” Said Freier to ZDF: “For us, the Osmanen Germania working as security guards, carrying guns, engaging in violent crimes and clashing with other groups show that they are a paramilitary group. Their political agenda also strengthens this impression.”

Founded in 2015, “Osmanen Germania” advocates an ideological mix of Islamism and Turkish nationalism.

In May 2016, German police intercepted a weapons shipment of automatic weapons to the group…

Erdogan has also demanded that Germany approve more visas for Turkish citizens to relocate there, threatening to send more waves of refugees if German Chancellor Angela Merkel didn’t comply.

Read the entire story at the link above.  Kemal Ataturk established a secular Turkish government at the beginning, and the country has long sought acceptance into Europe.  Integrating Turkey into Europe has been problematic, though, due to history, culture and not least of all, significant religious differences.  In recent years the secular nature of Turkey has been undermined, and under Erdogan the country’s actions are coming to resemble those of Iran — a revolutionary, totalitarian regime determined to export its particular brand of Islam.

Europe can ill afford to bring in any more “refugees” who can then serve as shock troops for subversive activities or engage in general mayhem.  The best way to shut down that threat is to close the border and expel of all the “refugees” admitted in recent years.  A fitting policy would be to void the residency of any who arrived after September 11, 2001.  Given his own public statements (essentially threats), Erdogan has no grounds to complain about such a policy.

Dissent versus dissing

NFL fans appear to be ready to mount their own “protest” by ignoring the sport, after a fatal league infestation of knee-taking.  This is giving the Left vapors: “you can’t do that!  It’s our right to dissent.”

Yes, it is.  And it’s the fans’ right not to associate with people who do so in such a childish fashion.  You see, this isn’t about dissent so much as it’s about dissing. (As in “disrespecting.”)

Dissing the symbols of America, just because its past isn’t more perfect than any other nation.  Whether you take a knee during the anthem or simply cut to the chase and burn the flag, you’re expressing hostility to symbols that still mean a great deal to a lot of people.  Many of those people would be only too happy to help fund you a one-way plane ticket to whatever country whose heritage and symbols you find superior.  We’re generous that way.

Dissing present-day citizens who have the audacity to believe government should both protect the border and leave them alone, and they should have the ability to call out and resist idiocy — such as allowing people to choose whatever bathroom they “feel like” that day — as they see it.

Dissing the Christian heritage that forms an essential part of the foundation this country was built upon.  (Why isn’t it “dissent” to refuse to participate in a gay “marriage” ceremony?  Aren’t professional sports also “public accommodations?”  Bake that cake Stand up NFL — you’re offending people!)

The mistake many make is in focusing on the issue du jour in isolation.  This isn’t about just the NFL.  It’s merely a continuation of a tiresome trend that has finally worn out its welcome and the average American’s patience: the cultural appropriation of anything considered “as American as Mom and apple pie” to churn out anti-American agitprop.  The populist/traditionalist backlash that is brewing is due to people realizing the elites aren’t out to reform America so much as they are to replace it with something more to their globalist likings.  They’ve been doing this to our institutions for decades.  Now the fight is more out in the open.  This situation makes many angry.  I’m one of them.  The very anger I feel towards ‘those people’ (a deliberate reference – figure it out if you can) makes me concerned for the future.  For if I imagine it multiplied by millions of fellow citizens, it is a tremendous potential force that can be harnessed for good or evil.  Nor is America alone is seeing this anger rise among those who still value the nation of their birth.

As Christians, we’re not told it’s wrong to be angry — only that in our anger “do not sin.” Easier said than done.  As the famous philosopher Yoda once said, “…anger leads to hate; hate leads to suffering…”   And frankly, I wouldn’t mind seeing some of the ringleaders of these constant shenanigans suffer…

…even if it’s only suffering cramped economy-class seating on a long one-way flight to somewhere else, with citizenship and return privileges revoked.

Too harsh, you say?  Subversion–what they’ve been up to for a couple generations–is merely treason spread out over time.  Once it’s recognized for what it is, such a penalty seems light in comparison to the standard.

Well… who’da thunk?

Note: this is a lengthy post in part because I’m refuting secularists who misuse scripture to justify the ongoing invasion of the West.  If you arrived on this site’s main page be sure to click on “Continue reading” below.

Both a judge in Washington and an appeals panel of the 9th Circus Circuit Court of Appeals have stayed President Trump’s executive order banning entry to the country by people from seven nations considered to be high risk (incidentally, it was Obama who first flagged these nations as problematic).  Both courts claimed there was no evidence to support such a ban.

Truth is, they just didn’t look for any.  After all, pesky facts would get in the way of their legislating AND presiding from the bench:

A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks. These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president’s order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in.

Let me repeat that: 72 people from the countries on Trump’s list arrived in the United States since 9/11, and were later convicted of terror-related actions.

This is why I can’t stand the Transportation Security Agency — it’s security theater, not real security.  Real security comes from keeping terrorists out of the country, not from harassing citizens at airports.

This is why I can’t stand the open borders crowd.  Either we are a sovereign nation or we’re not.  Sovereign nations have every right to control who is allowed to enter and under what circumstances.

What shall we do with the Muslim traitors?

(Note: the title of this post is more fun if sung to the tune of “The Drunken Sailor”)

I’m not in favor of putting Muslims in internment camps in the U.S., as prominent DEMOCRAT Wesley Clark is.  (For the record, I’m not a fan of Clark–or the Democrats–at all.)  What I *am* in favor of is the following:

1) Severely curtail or completely cut off all immigration from the Muslim world.  Yes, there are those who come here peacefully with every intent to live honorably in their adopted home.  I suspect they’re a very small minority compared to those who want to Sharia-ize America.  It’s hard to square the rhetoric of “being at war” with radical Islam when we allow tens of thousands of people annually to enter our nation from lands that are primary sources of that ideology.  Life isn’t always fair, and sometimes misguided attempts to make it fair lead to even worse results.  Stop the flow, and secure the *&%^ border.

2) On a related note, I also think when someone previously deported is found to have slipped back into the country again, life imprisonment with hard labor or a firing squad should be on the table.  After all, if your home was repeatedly burglarized, you’d be more inclined to shoot the intruder, would you not?

3) Stop pandering to the Muslim community.  Either they want to be a part of this society, or they don’t.

4) Take allegations of radical Islamist preaching in U.S. mosques seriously, and deal with it swiftly.  Any Imam who says “death to America” at a Friday service should find himself on a one-way flight to Riyadh or Sana’a by the following Monday night (and that long only to allow for formal processing and legalities).  Incidentally, I’d also apply that standard to Obama’s mentor, alleged “Christian” Pastor Jeremiah Wright, for requesting “God damn America.”  It’s one thing for Christian leaders to point out that America is on the wrong side of God’s standards and call for repentance — and we need to do that loudly and often in this day and age.  It’s another thing entirely to call for judgment (see what I did there, all you who like to confuse Christian discernment with ‘judgment’ so that we aren’t supposed to criticize sin?), and to deliberately promote racial discord by one’s preaching.  Maybe a few years of “Back to Africa” would give Wright a different perspective on just how blessed he was to live here.

Either we believe radical Islam is a serious threat, or we don’t.  If we do, action is required.  I’m appalled at Clark’s suggestion that we just fence people into concentration camps.  That’s wrong to do to any human beings, and reinvigorates a bad precedent that could be used against any group the government takes a dislike to (as a member of one such group – orthodox Christians – I pay special attention to such trends).  Instead, we need to realize that certain worldviews are fundamentally incompatible, and it’s simple insanity to try to weave them together into some utopian diversity quilt.  Once any American–Muslim or not–declares their hostility to the Constitution and all that our history stands for, and openly espouses violence against that system or expresses a wish for its demise, it’s time to relocate them, at a minimum.  If they want to live in the 7th Century somewhere in Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia, let ’em go for it.

But when they try to turn the clocks back here (and that includes the Marxist-inspired rhetoric that is setting back race relations half a century or more), it’s time to say “buh-BYE!”
