FITNA

I know I haven't done a lot of political posting on this blog, and I haven't done much posting at all recently, but I wanted to pass this along. Little Green Footballs has posted a link to a short video on Muslim atrocities: FITNA. (Click on the title of the post.) Assuming you have a strong stomach, you may want to watch this, if only to show solidarity with the people who have received death threats from the disgusting stone-age thugs that are the leaders of this religion and the even more disgusting cowards that allow them to get away with it.

(That being said, it is not the responsibility of companies like LiveLeak to put themselves in the line of fire in order to save us from our complacency. It is the job of the government to react instantly against those who issue these threats. The government is NOT DOING ITS JOB.)

The barbarians are screaming at the gate. Will Western Civilization, like Rome, eventually allow itself to be sacked? Do we really want another Dark Ages?

If we allow one to come about through our own complacency, we will have deserved it.

Watch Fitna today! said...

Jennifer, that was a great post of yours. Well spoken. What can I add but to agree wholeheartedly. Complacency is exactly the problem we face in the western world. Instead of standing shoulder to shoulder in solidarity against these whacked out murderous radical muslims -- many are more interested in knowing which celebrity committed adultery with who this week.

Our dhimmi politicians put our freedoms at risk by constantly turning a blind eye and making excuses for these murderous 7th century barbarians. The same goes for main stream media - they refuse to cover the truth. We'd better all wake up and shake off the politically correct foolishness ...and soon. God bless Mr. Geert Wilders.

I don't think the problem is necessarily physical complacency, but intellectual complacency. Physically, Islamism is no threat to us, although apparently they don't realize this as we do. It is our own mistaken ideologies (multiculturalism in particular) that are a threat to us.

It is easy to stand against a stupid, brutal, barbaric enemy. It is not easy to fight your own ideology when you have no idea what it is that you stand for. A principled defense of what America and other Western nations actually stand (or should stand) for is what is important here.
