NAACP is a disgrace

Their leadership race baits, and uses divisive language in an effort to stay relevant. Rather than  tackling real problems, like Black crime rates, 93% of Black murder victims are murdered by Blacks, or the rampant issue of unwed pregnancies, the NAACP rants about Confederate flags or monuments, and injects race into issues to stir up “outrage”. The NAACP is a Left-Wing group, period! Take how they treat Black Conservatives for instance

Diversity? Tolerance? Actually helping Blacks in America? Fat chance, the NAACP would rather persecute a man acquitted for murder than try to do any actual good.

AG to enforce Sharia now?

Seems like a headline that is too crazy to believe. Just too over the top right? Maybe, unless the Obama administration is involved, I mean, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, spying on the press, using the EPA to attack businesses, using the IRS to intimidate political opponents, arming the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, what is a little Sharia down America’s throat.

 

You just knew this was coming, didn’t you?

DOJ: Social Media Posts Trashing Muslims May Violate Civil Rights

In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.

The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally reassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates) that urges members not to cooperate in federal terrorism investigations that the “us versus them” environment created by the U.S. government, law enforcement agents and fellow citizens is unacceptable and inconsistent with what America is all about.

Yeah, because no administration knows what America is about like Team Obama right?

…Evidently that was a precursor of sorts for an upcoming Tennessee event (“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society”) that will feature the region’s top DOJ official [Bill Killian], who serves as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and an FBI representative. The goal is to increase awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles, according to a local newspaper report. The June 4 powwow is sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee.

The area’s top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

Time will tell as to what comes of this, but just in case you want to know what a “violation” of Islamic Law might be Doug Ross has a list of no no’s

– speaking ill of Allah
– finding fault with Muhammad
– speculating about how Muhammad would behave if he were alive
– drawing a picture to represent Muhammad
– whistling during prayers
– flouting the rules prescribed for Ramadan
– reciting Muslim prayers in a language other than Arabic
– consuming alcohol
– gambling
– being alone with persons of the opposite sex who are not blood relatives

– practicing yoga
– watching a film or listening to music
– wearing make-up on television
– insulting religious scholarship
– wearing the clothing of Jews or of Zoroastrians
– participating in non-Islamic religious festivals
– converting from Islam to Christianity

Fundamental change anyone?

Your Blog Post of the Day

 

Is from The Other McCain, and it is  a good one. Thought provoking, compelling, and best of all, educational. The Problem With Sexual Rights will make you think, and  if you are a Liberal that is a great thing. Go read it all, but, the opening, to me, perfectly describes the one reason we can not hold real debates with Liberals

“Seizing on the triumphant narrative of the black civil-rights movement, liberals adopted the habit of framing political debates in terms of minority ‘rights’ versus majority ‘discrimination.’ . . . To disagree with a liberal, to oppose his latest policy proposal, is to invite comparisons to Bull Connor and Orval Faubus, so long as the liberal can make ‘rights’ the basis of his argument.
” ‘Rights talk’ allowed liberals a means of preemptively delegitimizing their opponents and thereby to avoid arguing about policy in terms of necessity, utility and efficacy. If all legal and political conflicts are about ‘rights,’ there is no need to argue about the specific consequences of laws and policies. Merely determine which side of the controversy represents ‘rights’ and the debate ends there.”
– Robert Stacy McCain, “Gay Rights, Gay Rage,” The American Spectator, Oct. 17, 2008

YES! That is absolutely correct. Every Liberal cause, is transformed into a crusade for civil rights, rather than an issue to be openly debated. Thus, emotionalism is elevated above thinking, and we see where that leads. Stacy McCain also sums up another key problem with debating Liberals, their “Progressivism” has no limits

Liberalism has no fixed goal. We will never reach a point at which the liberal will say, “enough.” Grant all his demands today, and tomorrow the liberal will return to demand more.

Take for example the federal budget, which is $3,796,000,000,000 for the current year. Could we go to our liberal friends and get them to specify an amount — say, $5 trillion — at which the federal budget would be big enough? If we could ever get liberals to stipulate some final number, some ultimate limit to the remorseless expansion of Washington’s power over us, then we might be able to negotiate a settlement. But what liberals demand is always more, and so it’s like negotiating with a shark about how much of your leg he will eat.

How true, and I have come to believe that the “more” the Left always seems to want is because they want nothing short of absolute control of everyone and everything. There is no “nose of the camel under the tent” with the Left, the nose, is followed by a hump, followed by the entire camel, and behind that camel, are hundreds of other camels.

 

Atheists File Civil Rights Complaint Against Florist | Jessica Ahlquist & FFRF | Video | TheBlaze.com

Via The Blaze.As I understand it a business reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.I should know, I have run restaurants, and have refused service to people at different times.Now, I never did it based on their religion, but it was done based on their actions. Sounds like these florists do not wish to do business with this brat based on her actions.What is really scary is the idea that a business might be FORCED to do business with people who they do not wish to.Again, the radical Left seeks to force their “religion” down others throats!
