The American liberal mainstream media paints a picture that is just not correct. There is a misconception amongst the American people that Muslims are just going along with radical movements like ISIS represents because secretly, deep down they like it or believe in it. The truth is that most normal (or real, as you may better like to call it) actually publicly denounce the actions of groups like ISIS all of the time, but the mainstream media can’t breed fear out of that , so it usually goes completely unreported or at the very least underreported.
Awesome video out in the middle of the action where three groups of people that are more commonly thought to be at odds with one another battle a common enemy tooth and nail. How much could America and other countries learn from this video?
Who better than an atheist to give an unbiased opinion about Islamophobia in America? Well, not just any atheist but one that fits the kind of description that many in America might be afraid of. This woman gives a great analysis of just what Islamophobia means and whether it is real in America, especially in light of the terrorist attacks in France and the current backlash toward the concept of Syrian refugees being swiftly relocated to America. What do you think? Is America becoming more and more Islamophobic?
As usual, the United States of America is divided down political lines as Democrats and Republicans clash about another issue that seems like it should be no big deal but it is. President Barack Obama has a plan to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States of America quickly, and to spread them out at various cities across the country. This is just the beginning, as the overall plan is to bring some 45,000 into America. Of the 45,000, 97% of them are Muslims, with the other three percent identifying as Christian or otherwise.
In light of the terror attacks in Paris, a lot of states are not too happy about this idea that no one was really all that concerned about previously. It turns out that perhaps one of the attackers in Paris may have entered the country as a refugee, taking advantage of France’s relaxed laws for that sort of thing. And the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombings were refugees as well. So, we see a couple of clear examples of people getting burnt by accepting refugees.
It goes without saying that the overwhelming majority of refugees are probably good people trying to get out of a sad, desperate situation. However, many Americans feel that the chance that just a small number of these refugees might be some sort of “Trojan horse” situation (and it only takes a very small percentage of that 45,000 to end up with a Paris-like situation in America) makes it not prudent to accept them into our country at this time. Canada has already decided nationally that they want no part of it. Of course, it is mostly Republican-controlled states that are against the refugees, while the Democratic states probably aren’t particularly excited about it, but they must blindly follow what their leader says. Many of the Democratic persuasion are saying that this is cowardice. President Obama has said that we don’t discriminate based on religion, and “this is not who we are.”
So, is America overreacting? Does it make sense to accept these refugees into the country even when there seems to be at least a small chance that some of them might want to do America harm?
Consider this. These same people are part of a class of people that the United States was considering arming to help them fight. However, that plan got scrapped because it was determined that it was too difficult to know who was on what side and what their respective agendas were. So, they were unsure whether they could trust them to arm them in the civil war in Syria, but now they are totally sure it’s okay to bring them into America. After all, they can always just punch their names into the Radical Islamic Terrorist Database, right?
Is it cowardice to not want to help these people? Or is just common sense not to want a group of people that might include some that want to do terrible deeds into your country? I mean, it’s nothing personal against Syrians, but it just happens that some of you guys like to strap explosives to your chest, walk into as crowded of a place as you can, and blow yourself up. We would very much like to see you stop doing that, and we realize that it is a small percentage that is doing that. Unfortunately, a small percentage is enough to kinda be a little wary of that whole thing.
So, you have to look at the job. President Obama’s first job is the security of Americans. The plight of the Syrian refugees is horrific. No one is debating that. But if your first priority is American citizens’ safety, then you simply shouldn’t be even considering this as a possibility. Calling people cowards for using their brains and wanting to protect themselves first is painfully ironic, because President Obama has his finger on the trigger of the most powerful military in the world and has done nothing while this menace has grown for years. If he really wants to help the Syrian refugees, instead of bringing them into a nation where they are equally as unwanted, he could take care of their problem so they could return home. But Obama just today insisted that his plan for ISIS is working like a charm, even as French reporters questioned his judgment. Apparently, Obama feels that ISIS is right on schedule. What do you think?
One common theme running through a lot of the major terrorism-related events in our world is the concept that authorities always seem to be practicing what actually happens at coincidentally just the right time. The most famous example is September 11, where there is actual recordings of air traffic controllers becoming confused as to whether the events unfolding were real or part of the training exercise that was currently underway that was almost exactly what happened. In Boston, a full training exercise was actually in progress as the bombs exploded. The list goes on and on for this sort of thing, and it has always fueled conspiracy theories, especially those regarding false flag operations or situations where a government knows something terrible is about to happen but chooses to look the other way. The terror attacks in Paris, France are no exception. It just so happens that the authorities there were prepared for just such a situation. After all, they were doing training exercises for that exact thing.
As with almost every event such as this, there are those in conspiracy circles that start looking hard at the limited information that they is available for a common thread. The concept of crisis actors has been tossed around in conspiracy forums for decades, and we often see quickly thrown-together images showing very similar figures at tragic events. The same is true for the tragic terror attacks in Paris. A graphic is already circulating on the Internet showing the same girl at a series of events… Boston, Aurora, Sandy Hook, Paris. She is only one girl that frequently is seen reacting to tragic events. Many people believe this is a small part of a grand conspiracy and that she is one of the fabled “crisis actors.” Of course, it could all be coincidence or it could be that any crowd of people is liable to have someone that looks familiar. What do you think? Is it time to ask this girl some questions?
The mainstream media and anyone that opposes religion or Republican candidates for president is working overtime to make Ben Carson, a genius by almost any measure, a total raving lunatic idiot. Because he seems to be a pretty good guy with traditional Christian beliefs that, despite what the mainstream media preaches (yes, pardon the pun), they are having to really dig deep into the bag of tricks to find something to throw at this guy. The latest assassination ammunition is the fact that Ben Carson has a painting in his home featuring himself and Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, in case you were raised liberal, is a historical religious figure that really existed by almost all historians’ accounts and walked the Earth a little over 2,000 years ago. He taught a lot of terrible things like loving one another, turning the other cheek, and doing the right thing. If you believe in the religion, he also was the Son of God. If you don’t believe in the religion, you have a problem with all of the good messages he had just in principle because it makes you happy to insult everyone around you. In any case, this Jesus guy if pretty popular the world over, and despite the insinuation that he is dead in America, he really is still quite popular. He makes more sales in America each year than Elvis Presley, Tupac Shakur, and Michael Jackson’s estates combined, so he’s still packing that clout. Anyway, if you are of the Christian faith, it is quite common to think that Jesus is your guardian angel of sorts, looking out for you and helping guide you on whatever it is you are doing at that particular moment. Ben Carson is into Jesus, so this portrait is simply symbolic of Jesus being with him, looking over him, and helping guide him.
According to the mainstream media, it is just proof that Ben Carson is certifiably insane because he apparently sat down to have a painting done of himself and Jesus. Yes, they actually are saying that Ben Carson believes he sat for that portrait with Jesus Christ himself in the smear campaign. How idiotic do you have to be to overlook the symbolic, regardless of what you believe, and come up with an even dumber theory than anything you could possibly be railing against. Actually, it’s not that hard to think that way if you want to discredit a guy that apparently really hasn’t done anything wrong, so you have to reach. Accusing the man of thinking Jesus is still alive and had his picture made with him is just another way of trying to say, “Holy you-know-what are we afraid of this guy.”
The painting might be a little tacky, maybe even a little vain, but it certainly makes sense, and it’s not something that most people in America are having a problem understanding. This article isn’t necessarily supporting Ben or his policies, as much as supporting the idea that the mainstream media is just launching a false narrative to try to make a good guy look bad. Hillary Clinton is currently accused of federal crimes, so I guess they need something on Ben this badly. But just for the record, Democrats can smear the Republican candidates all they want, because Lord knows the Republican candidates are going to smear them back. But they might want to leave Jesus Christ out of it. Just sayin’.
