Yes, it’s been a while since I had a column in here, and the reason is not that important. What IS important is that there is “stuff” going on in our country, and around the world, that should be looked at and discussed. We try to approach the subject(s) from an objective standpoint, but there are times when the responses are WAY over the top! It’s been a while since I got a death threat, but recently one came to me in my mail. Nah…it doesn’t bother me that much because the older I get the less frightening the end seems to be. Let’s see what’s troubling us today.
Islam, as it has been for 1400 years so far, is busily infiltrating the most opposite-end-of-the-spectrum holiday, Christmas! Now you might be thinking, as I was when the article flashed on the screen, “Muslims have lost their minds”, or words to that effect. Who would have ever thought that Christmas could be/would be Islamized… but it’s in the process of doing just that. According to the article, this person was given a “gift bag” which contained, among other goodies, 2 new and very thick books on Islam: The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam and World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace, the latter discussing the urgent need for “world peace” and “global security.” When one thinks about world peace, from the Muslim standpoint, it becomes crystal clear that their idea is completely different than most of the civilized world. Islam teaches that ONLY when it is the only religion(cult) on earth, can world peace be achieved. Infidels will be converted(by force if necessary) or killed. A maximum “push of deception” is now underway, this Christmas season, by those volunteering to further the anti-Constitutional causes of Political Islam. But the Bible words glare from New Testament pages with a deafening, “Let no man deceive you!”
Comes now the word “dhimmi”. In the final analysis, to ultimately convert Christians and other world religions and secular to become dhimmi, second-class citizens not Muslims by birth, useful for their 51% demographic to enact Sharia Law. Be forewarned: the dhimmi are always given the lower paying jobs and higher taxes. This will be the inevitable outcome for the uninformed who convert to Islam across North America!
Was Samuel Huntington wrong? He is best known for his 1993 theory, the “Clash of Civilizations”, of a post-Cold War new world order. He argued that future wars would be fought not between countries, but between cultures, and that Islamic extremism would become the biggest threat to world peace. Huntington is credited with helping to shape U.S. views on civilian-military relations, political development, and comparative government. No matter that Islam has been de-Christianizing for 13 centuries. The Christian community is completely de-sensitized, soft and indifferent, in effect welcoming the dispossession of their Christian Republic, culture and lifestyle! One last word on this subject, and that is my personal mantra: There is NOTHING worthwhile in Islam, and I wouldn’t trust ANY Muslim as far as I could throw a Buick!
Next subject: Just ONE aspect of political correctness running amok. In a recent article, one that I was sure to come, the BOY SCOUTS of America are seriously considering filing for bankruptcy! Do you want to hazard a guess as to what the cause of this catastrophe might be? Sure, you knew it was the further “wussification” of America, and by attacking this organization until they caved in, there was an excellent chance that a whole generation of young men would be amenable to whatever other kooky ideas came down the pike. Camping out, which used to be a good way to assess the worthiness of what the Scouts were being taught, had suddenly become a pre-teen and teen age voyage of exploration, replete with girls!
Now, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that boys and girls of a certain age are going to “explore”, does it…really?
As the organization has made decisions deemed to be more inclusive, such as allowing openly gay scouts in 2013 and scoutmasters in 2015 as well as the 2018 decision to allow girls, membership has continued to decline sharply, from over 4 million members at its peak to a claimed 2.3 million members at present. A prestigious Chicago law firm, Sidley Austin has reportedly been hired to assist in what would be a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. On a humorous note, one up-and-coming comedian was heard to declare that girls were what the BOY scouts had been scouting for all these years! Between needing “safe spaces”, the elimination of genders, and the so-called “blasphemy” when a person utters a rather mild “cuss” word, it’s no wonder that the young(er) people are confused about what to do, where to go, and how to remain “true” to whatever they’re protesting this week!
Parting shot: Being the age that I am(85 in March), it occurs to me, as the old saying goes, “I’ve been where you are, but you haven’t been where I am.”, rings true. Some things that we seniors have experienced may not ever be experienced again. A cartoon showed a teenage girl complaining to her grandfather that “…It’s just not fair…you got to see all the good bands!”, and of course that’s true. Some of us were a part of The Greatest Generation, and that’s never coming back.
