Radical Islamic terrorism viewed thru liberal, conservative lens

We often use the header “Weekend Reading Guaranteed to Make You Smarter,” featuring a commentary by conservatives we admire. Today the format is different. We begin with this stellar video* which was Judge Jeanine Pirro’s ‘Opening Statement’ Saturday evening on Fox News. In making her case concerning the terrorist slaughter that occurred when young husband and wife radicalized Muslim assailants opened fire taking the lives of 21 people and wounding 14 others in San Bernardino, Judge Pirro sets out several sensible rules for Americans, and minces no words, stating unequivocally: “The jackals are at the door”

Now turn leftward. The New York Times takes the terrorist acts to another level. In publishing its first front page editorial since 1920, it took on gun violence, but not from the perspective of Islamic terrorism. The editorial board mixes apples and oranges comparing horrific acts of violence perpetrated by random maniacal killers to fomented anti-American hatred stirred up by radicalized jihadist butchers who despise our freedoms and American way of life.  Any senseless murder is abhorrent to decent people, but the two are not remotely in the same league. The NYT’s has one thing in mind: the confiscation of Second Amendment protected firearms.  The editorial plainly states, “It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.”  Firearms that actually save lives are reduced to “tools of macho vigilantism.”

Jihadists such as these are unworthy of mention, since the editorial declares “Motives do not matter:”

In July, a ‘devout Muslim’ attacked a military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tenn. killing five unarmed recruiters.  The depravity was initially called an “act of domestic terrorism,” but the Obama administration, unable to utter the words “Islamic terrorism,” quickly changed the tone, referring to the slaughter as a “senseless act of violence.” Obama refers to the growing global threat of Islamic terror known as ISIS as a “JV team” that  has been “contained” while he foolishly authorizes more unvetted Syrian refugees to enter the U.S.

In 2014 a Muslim convert Alton Nolen beheaded a female coworker and attempted to kill another he had been trying to convince to convert to Islam.

The Tsarnaev brothers from the repressive Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan had lived in the U.S. for nearly 10 years since their family was provided asylum. Still they killed 3 spectators including an 8-year-old boy cheering his father in the race, and blinded and maimed 264 others using homemade bombs they placed at the Boston Marathon in 2013. Sixteen people lost legs; the youngest amputee was a 7-year-old girl. The FBI said the brothers were motivated by extremist Islamic beliefs.

In 2009, a bloodbath took place at Fort Hood Army Base in which killed 13 people including a pregnant woman and injured more than 30 as shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” (Allah is greater”) rang out. The perpetrator was Nidal Hasan, a U.S. Army major and psychiatrist. He was also a radicalized Muslim terrorist. The Obama administration termed this slaughter, “workplace violence.”

The Religion of Peace website has a complete listing of Islamic jihadist murderers going back to 1972, including the 19 Muslim perpetrators who killed nearly 3,000 innocents on Sept. 11, 2001. Their carnage was also accompanied by shouts of “Allahu Akbar!”

    An unarmed America would be the dream of the leftist NYTs and Barack Hussein Obama, who was raised a Muslim as a boy in Indonesia. When will Americans wake up? Political correctness and the unwillingness of this president to state the truth about the determination of Islam to have worldwide dominance will be our undoing. Are the PC fools desirous of seeing their own daughters and granddaughters wearing burqas and unable to drive or attend school? Islam is not a religion as we think of Christianity and Judaism. It is a complete way of life that includes honor killings of women accused of bringing shame on their family. We saw that right here in Phoenix when a young woman was stalked by her father who ran over her in a public parking lot being too “westernized.” After he killed her and severely injured her boyfriend’s mother, family members who apparently approved of the murder assisted him in going to Mexico and eventually to England which extradited him back to AZ.

    Islam has its own legal system that is now being allowed to function in the USA and throughout areas of Western Europe. London alone has numerous Sharia courts.

    They’ll play th’ Devil tryin’ to haul me into a shariah court. They’d best be prepared. This kind of garbage only applies if you allow it. I simply remain NON-COMPLIANT! Let ol’ johnny mcTraitor do it………..

    I can’t help but wonder who’s side the liberals establishment is actually on. It’s difficult to believe it’s ours.

    Jeanine Pirro is a standup fighter for America. She was a Westchester County, NY D.A. who was pressed to run against Hillary Clinton for Senate in New York. She didn’t do it, but at the time I thought she would make mincemeat of the congenital liar and win. Her “open” as she calls it was outstanding last night. She’s not afraid to say it like it is and how most Americans see it.

    Here’s an interesting tidbit – Governor Moonbeam of CA, in his eternal quest to ban guns, blames AZ and NV for criminals being able to buy guns. The Sacramento Bee said the San Bernardino terrorists’ guns were purchased in California. Gov. Ducey fought back!

    CA Gov. says AZ gun laws offer ‘giant back door’ for terrorists; Ducey responds

    This is the reason Donald Trump is leading in all the polls.

    Jihadists mentioned above are just following the Quran:

    The Quran’s Verses of Violence

    Think of this tonight when Obama spins his tale from the Oval Office.

    SRAZ & ALL; Here’s a little trip down memory lane:


    …I believe this is enough to wipe mcStain off th’ campaign trail…he could argue the point of exactly who these muslims were/are, but my response to his face would be, “Prove it.” And…he can’t. If it walks like a duck & quacks like a duck and…
