The enemedia is patting itself on the back, congratulating itself with headlines that declare, “Ben Carson Walks Back Anti-Muslim Comments With More Anti-Muslim Comments,” when in fact the subheadline is, “I stand by the comments.”
This is the sharia-compliant media at its deadliest. Islamic supremacists and their running dogs in the media have unilaterally adhered to the blasphemy laws under the sharia (Islamic law). Anyone who violates these laws (which mandate that one must not criticize Islam or Muhammad) will be destroyed. In Muslim countries, you are executed for blasphemy. In the West, for the same “blasphemy” your character and good name are assassinated.
In the wake of the Donald Trump Muslim “scandal,” every GOP candidate was made to answer for it. Have Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Martin O’Malley, and Lincoln Chafee answered questions about Hillary Clinton’s email server and how her actions led to the jihad attack at Benghazi?
The Huffington Post reports that “Carson received a barrage of backlash after telling ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday that he ‘would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.’ He clarified on Monday, saying that he would support a Muslim president — if he or she denounced their religion.”
First off, let me say this is the true backlash that explodes in the wake of the hypersensitivities of the Muslim world. We are always warned about backlash in the wake of jihad terrorism. Yet that backlash never happens. The true backlash is what we see Ben Carson experiencing: intense criticism, scorn and derision in the wake of Islamorealism.
Carson didn’t “clarify” his remarks. He restated the obvious. GOP candidates are walking on eggshells — eggshells created by the leftist media. The Republican candidates have to be perfect and say everything according to leftist semantics. The Democrat candidates can say anything, anyhow, any which way but loose, and the enemedia applauds (see Obama’s “corpsman” gaffe, his reference to the “Austrian language,” his remark about visiting “57 states,” etc.).
The right must stop playing by the left’s rules in these war games in the information battlespace.
Ben Carson was speaking of a devout Muslim, a sharia-compliant Muslim, becoming President. The idea that we have to talk about “peaceful Muslims” every time jihad and sharia come up is a straw man argument. We don’t have to pat on the back every Muslim who doesn’t want to kill us. We expect that. That’s our bar. But the media insists. We don’t talk about “peaceful Buddhists,” “peaceful Sikhs,” “peaceful Christians,” etc. — so why must Muslims be treated like a special needs case? It’s the soft bigotry of low expectations.
Carson said to Fox’s Sean Hannity: “If someone has a Muslim background and they’re willing to reject those tenets and accept the way of life that we have and clearly will swear to place our Constitution above their religion, then of course they’ll be considered infidels and heretic, but at least then I’d be quite willing to support them.” In response, the Huffington Post declared, “It’s worth noting that no Christian president has ever been asked to denounce their faith.”
The Christian faith is not slaughtering millions in the cause of Jesus. The Christian faith is not subjugating and oppressing and denying basic human rights to non-Christians. The Christian faith has not declared war on the West.
Carson told Hannity he doesn’t regret what he said. “I stand by the comments. What we have to recognize is that this is America, and we have a Constitution and we don’t put people at the leadership of our country whose faith will interfere with the carrying out the duties of the Constitution. If you believe in a theocracy, I don’t care if you’re a Christian. If you’re a Christian and you’re running for president and you want to make us into a theocracy, I’m not going to support you.”
The Huffington Post snarked: “After hearing Carson’s explanation, Hannity boldly declared that ‘the controversy is over.’ Something tells us that won’t be the case.”
Of course it won’t, because the jackals at the Post and every other bootlicking media outlet are going to beat this horse until it’s dead, or at least until Carson’s campaign is. And this is why it is critical that we have his back. We must be vocal. Post this article to Facebook, email it — stand up for truth and freedom. The GOP candidates have got to stop playing the game according to the rules of the enemy. We must break out and stop reacting and start leading.
This is a battle for the American agenda. The media monsters mean to dictate what we can and cannot talk about. It is an attack on freedom of thought and freedom of speech. We must fight this battle with every cell of our being.
Every American who cares about this country must stand up and defend Carson’s right to speak candidly about an enemy that means to destroy us.
No one is safe. If you saw the latest kill list from ISIS, you saw that Michael Bloomberg, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffett are on it. That’s right, former New York City Mayor Bloomberg, who at the time fiercely supported the Ground Zero Mosque (Mecca on the Hudson). His kowtowing did not earn him their favor. We are all targets, and operation fetal position is no strategy for victory.
ISIS has a kill list, and so does the media. Carson is on the top of that hit list now. This is a defining moment in the 2016 presidential campaign.
