From Different River:

Dismantle the Military!

— Different River @ 5:03 pm

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is considering banning Junior ROTC from San Francisco high schools because they think the military is “discriminatory.” And oh, yes, for one other reason as well:

Supporters such as [sophmore student Timothy] Twyman say the program helps students develop self-confidence and prepare for the working world, while opponents counter that it’s just an easy way for the military to get a foothold in public schools and encourage teens to enlist after they graduate.

[snip]

And one Supervisor has an even more, um, interesting reason for wanted to get rid of JROTC:

In February, Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval appeared on Fox’s “Hannity and Colmes” show and said, “The United States should not have a military. All in all, we would be in much, much, much better shape.”

Really??? We'd be in much better shape, Supervisor Sandoval? Why don't you extract your head from your a&& and face reality:

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE FIGHTING AGAINST.  People (and I use that term loosely, here) who dress their kids as suicide bombers for entertainment.  And you want us to dismantle the military?  Why?  Do you think the whole world will suddenly become a peaceful and loving place once the big, bad U.S. of A is disarmed?  That we'll all get together like the old Coke commercials, and "teach the world to sing?"

Tell you what – why don't you go over there and whine about disarming, ok? 'Cause I think we'd be in much, much better shape without you.

It was all over the news this morning – protests scheduled to take place at local movie theaters for Friday's opening of The Da Vinci Code. 

"Da Vinci Code" film to draw protests, vigils

THE JOURNAL NEWS
Jessica Kelter knows the prayer vigil she is organizing against "The Da Vinci Code" at the New City Cinema tomorrow and Sunday won't stop the theater from screening the film.
"I'm doing it to defend my faith," said Kelter, 23, a stay-at-home mom.Kelter's vigil will be one of several protests in the Lower Hudson Valley and among an estimated 1,000 nationwide tied to the release of the film, which is based on Dan Brown's best-selling novel. Starting tomorrow, when the film opens, Roman Catholics associated with the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property will recite the rosary, sing hymns and chant the litany of the saints to protest what the organization calls "Gnostic heresy." [emphasis mine-RW].

Reciting the rosary.  Singing hymns.  Chanting the litany of the saints.

Compare this to the protests over the Mohammed Cartoon protests:

Maybe I'm just too sensitive today.  Maybe there's really nothing wrong with it.  But it sure pisses me off.

Had a customer today, who needed some supplies for a project her son is doing in one of the local schools.  It's a project on Islam, and the kid's going to be building a mosque.  Now, this is not a case of kids being assigned a project based on their own religions or customs.  This was part of an "Islamic studies" program at the school, which is here in lovely Outer Whitelandia, a very rich suburb of a major metropolitan city.  And it's extremely liberal, of course.

Now, it should be said that I do not live in this school district.  Here, property taxes are in the $20,000 – $30,000 per year range, and if I lived here & paid these outrageous taxes to support crap like this, I wouldn't be typing this, I'd be down at the school board screaming.

If the school decided to have a project on Christianity or Judaism, the ACLU would be up their asses, screaming about the separation of church and state.  And to have a class building little churches or synagogues?  Forget it.  But a mosque?  Abso-f***in-lutely fine & dandy.  Islam?  Worthy of study.

It was all I could do to control my temper as this kid (not more that 10 or 11) was looking at the paints and selecting the right colors – "Hey, Mom, green is the color of Islam – and this blue is just like the shade on the mosque". I took some little figures off the shelf – I figured cutting their heads off & strewing body parts around the model to represent what Islam really is would lend a nice touch, but I really need the customers to stay in business.  Damn it. I put them back.

I asked the mother what school the project was for, and I guess my face couldn't hide what I was thinking.  She made some moonbat comment about diversity and peacefulness, paid for her items, and left.

Poor UPS man.  He walked in just as the customers were leaving, and got an earful.

Kofi Annan: Denmark “Not Yet Sure How to Adjust” February 26, 2006

From Little Green Footballs:

Doha, Qatar, 26 February 2006 – STATEMENT BY THE SECRETARY-GENERAL AT THE OPENING SESSION OF THE SECOND MEETING OF THE HIGH-LEVEL GROUP FOR THE ALLIANCE OF CIVILIZATIONS

The offensive caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad were first published in a European country which has recently acquired a significant Muslim population, and is not yet sure how to adjust to it. [Recently acquired, Kofi?  What – did they go to Muslims ‘R Us and pick up a whole shopping cart full?  And adjust to it??? Um, no, the “new arrivals” need to adjust.]

And some of the strongest reactions – perhaps especially the more violent ones – have been seen in Muslim countries where many people feel themselves the victims of excessive Western influence or interference.

Whether or not those who published the caricatures were deliberately seeking to provoke, there is no doubt that some of the violent reactions have encouraged extremist groups within European societies, whose agenda is to demonize Muslim immigrants, or even expel them. [Hang on – “demonize” Muslim immigrants?  Do you mean Muslims who peacefully demonstrate?  Or  Muslims raping young girls as a “rite of passage“? Or Muslims killing? Be specific here, Kofi.]

Similarly, the republication of the cartoons, and the support for them voiced by some leaders in Europe, have strengthened those in the Muslim world who see Europe, or the West as a whole, as irredeemably hostile to Islam, and encourage Muslims always to see themselves as victims. [Here’s a hint for ya, Kofi – the West is hostile to Islam, because Islam is  hostile to everybody else.}

So misperception feeds extremism, and extremism appears to validate misperception. That is the vicious circle we have to break. That, as I see it, is the purpose of the Alliance. [Whoa!  A UN group that has a purpose!  Good going.  Except you need to take out the “appears” there – and the mis-.  As in “extremism validates the perception.”

It is important that we all realize that the problem is not with the faith but with a small group of the faithful – the extremists who tend to abuse and misinterpret the faith to support their cause, whether they derive it from the Koran, the Torah or the Gospel. [Now, Kofi, I’ll grant you, there are extremists like Fred Phelps (I won’t link to his page, but here’s some info) who are disgusting examples of “religion gone wild”, but how about comparing numbers and methods?  How many Phelps and his ilk compared to how many Islamic extremists? How many people has Fred blown up?]

The sad truth is that these narratives, however deceptive, can be very compelling. Incidents like a caricature of the Prophet, or a death threat to the artist who drew it, make far more impact on the popular imagination than pious statements issued by foreign ministers and secretaries-general. [Hmmm, drawing or death threat? Drawing, death threat.  Yeah, they’re the same to me, too.  Right.]

Don’t even get me started on the title of this thing – THE HIGH-LEVEL GROUP FOR THE ALLIANCE OF CIVILIZATIONS?  Can’t you just see them dressed like Ralph and Norton, wearing their raccoon hats?  Maybe Kofi & crew have secret handshakes and secret decoder rings, too.

Um, Kofi, I don’t know how to break the news to you, so I’ll just tell ya straight out – we’ve got  Islam vs. ONE civilization (which is everybody else).  That’s the way it is, and will be until the whole world is living under Shari’a.

Think I’m kidding?  Read this.

From The Mudville Gazette:

The Circus is Coming to Town

Greyhawk

Cindy Sheehan wants to bring her protest to the wounded at Landstuhl. This is the front page, banner headline story in today’s Stars and Stripes.

Sick, sick woman.  I can’t say anything else, ’cause I’m boiling mad right now, and it wouldn’t be fit to print.

Ok, I’ve had a while to think about this, throw things, and scream.  And I’m still pissed.

First of all, why the hell is she news at all?  She’s a mentally unstable woman who can’t recover from the loss of her son.  She’s to be pitied, not held up on a pedestal, having every shriek reported, and being photographed hugging outright enemies of the U.S.

“I admire him [Hugo Chavez] for his resolve against my government and its meddling.” -Cindy Sheehan.

“Down with the U.S. empire!” – Hugo Chavez

And now, she wants to stage a protest outside Landstuhl Army Medical Center. You know it – it’s where our wounded are brought to help save their lives.  And she’s hoping that Germany will listen to her screeching & deny the use of American bases to support the war.

She is a boil on the ass of humanity.  Drink up, Cindy.

H/T to Barking-Moonbat.com: Mona Charen looks at the current kerfuffle in California over the execution of Michael Morales.

“They found her body in a vineyard. Her purple sweater was pulled up revealing the knife protruding from her chest. Terri Lynn Winchell had been 17. It was 1981. Michael Morales, whose execution was indefinitely delayed last week, was convicted of her murder.” [snip – emphasis mine-RW]

“Death penalty opponents argue that if the barbiturate for some reason fails to sedate the criminal, he might experience pain when the other drugs are administered yet be unable to gesture or signal distress due to the paralyzing nature of the other drugs. Judge Jeremy Fogel bought it and demanded that California adjust its procedures by either having an anesthesiologist administer the drugs or using only barbiturates and not the other drugs to execute the criminal. California opted to seek the services of anesthesiologists but ran into a brick wall. The doctors insisted that their Hippocratic Oath forbade them to participate in taking life under any circumstances. National Public Radio quoted Dr. Priscilla Ray, chair of the American Medical Association’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, who declared, “Our belief [that doctors should not participate in executions] is based on the fundamental ethical precept of medicine is that we first do no harm.” And Dr. Jeffrey Apfelbaum, an anesthesiologist at the University of Chicago Hospitals, told the Chicago Tribune, “We are dedicated to preserving life whenever there’s hope to do so. To take away life, or contribute to that, runs completely contrary to what we dedicate our lives to do.” 

 Read the whole thing.

Interesting, huh?  So I guess there are no abortions performed by doctors, since the AMA’s motto is “first, do no harm”.  And don’t forget, they’re “dedicated to preserving life wherever there’s hope to do so.”  Their motto should be – The Hypocrits Oath – “We say whatever lets us do what we want.”

Personally, I like the Skipper’s suggestion:

I have an idea of how to punish Morales and it might serve as an excellent example to others ….

 

The hurdle or sledge was similar to a piece of fencing made from thin branches interwoven to form a panel to which the prisoner was tied to be dragged behind a horse to the place of execution. Once there, the prisoner(s) were hanged in the normal way (i.e. without a drop to ensure that the neck was not broken) but cut down whilst still conscious.

The penis and testicles were cut off and the stomach was slit open. The intestines and heart were removed and burned before them. The other organs were torn out and finally the head was cut off and the body divided into four quarters. The head and quarters were parboiled to prevent them rotting too quickly and then displayed upon the city gates as a grim warning to all.

At some point in this agonising process, the prisoner inevitably died of strangulation and/or haemorrhage and/or shock and damage to vital organs.

Or, how about sticking scissor in his head and sucking his brain out?  I’d even volunteer to do it.  Bastard.

 

How do I explain it to him? February 22, 2006

Tonight, I had “Special Report with Brit Hume” on while I was making dinner.  The discussion turned to the Supreme Court review of the ban on partial-birth abortion. Brit asked each panel member what the procedure should be called, and Fred Barnes said he thought “partial-birth abortion” was the correct term since a baby is partially born, then killed.  Mara Liasson said she preferred the phrase “late-term abortion”.  Then they showed a tape of the woman (?) from NOW (Nauseating Obnoxious Whiners) talking about “reproductive rights”. 

Why?  Why call it something to make it more, I don’t know, acceptable?  It is what it is – delivering a baby and killing it before it takes a breath.  How have we arrived at this point as a society where this is acceptable? 

My teenage son wasn’t in the room at this point, and for that I thank the gods. 

How can I look him in the eye and tell him that people do this?  That there are women who will have their babies killed while still inside them, and others who will have them killed as they’re being born?  How do you explain this?  How do you explain that doctors actually do this?  How do supporters of abortion explain it to their kids?  Oh, yes, honey, it’s not a big deal. Good thing you arrived at a convenient time, or that could have been you? 

I’ve spent the last 20-some years taking care of my children, and that started the minute I found out I was pregnant.  I’ve loved them from the first instant I knew that they existed, and I’ve grown to love them more each day.  I can’t imagine the world without them.  They are the most important things in our lives, and I would give my life in a second if it could save theirs.  Isn’t this how a mom is supposed to be?

There is a certain human-ness missing, I think, in a large portion of the population.  I’m amazed when I read about PETA going on about eating meat, and chickens that are being mistreated, and women who wear fur – where’s the outrage for the littlest humans?  Or the groups that come out whenever an execution is scheduled – sure, get all over the news trying to save a killer, but a baby?  Nah.  Not worth it.

Yeah, this sends the Muslim world a message, all right …

Via Yahoo News:  EU mulls media code after cartoon protests

In an interview with Britain’s Daily Telegraph, EU Justice and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini said the charter would encourage the media to show “prudence” when covering religion.

“The press will give the Muslim world the message: We are aware of the consequences of exercising the right of free expression,” he told the newspaper. “We can and we are ready to self-regulate that right.”

We’re aware of the consequences of exercising the right of free expression?  And we’ll self regulate that right?

How about “We’re afraid of you and we’ll do everything we can to make you feel better.  Just don’t hurt us”.  That’s the message you’re sending, buddy.  Sniveling, scared, cowering-in-the-corner European Union – you’ll be called the Islamic Union if you don’t grow a pair pretty soon.

 

An excellent read… February 6, 2006

Bloodthirsty Christians Riot Across American Heartland

“To implicitly argue that unrestrained violence is excusable in the special case of offended Muslims out of respect for and tolerance of their belief system is the worst kind of racist double-standard: The cartoonists were stupid to provoke ‘those people’, some seem to suggest, including – quite explicitly – New Zealand’s Prime Minister and our own U.S. State Department. Everyone knows they’re all incendiary fanatics… why make things worse than they already are, seems to be the outrageous subtext.  “

I had this conversation with my daughter earlier today.  We were grocery shopping, and I made it a point to buy Danish cheese.  When she asked why, I explained what was going on with the cartoon madness, and this was just my small way of showing my support for the cartoonists and the newspapers which published the cartoons.

Her reaction?  Well, if people were going to be upset, they shouldn’t have published them.

ARRRRRRGGGGGGH. 

I explained that the people (and I use that term loosely) “upset” by the cartoons were burning buildings and threatening the cartoonists with death.  These people, I further explained, would be “upset” by the fact that she’s an independent young woman who is attending college, has a career ahead of her, goes where she wants, and wears what she damned well pleases.  If we really don’t want to upset them, she’d better start shopping at BurkasRUs, and lock herself in the house unless her brother or father decide she’s allowed to go somewhere.  Oh, and that boyfriend?  Really nice guy, but we’ve picked out a really good husband for you – he’s 80, but that’s ok, you don’t have to love him, you just have to marry him.  Or dad will kill you.

Hmmm…I think she’s starting to re-think the appeasement approach. 

Good.
