Islamophobic Guilt

(With thanks to Will, who emailed me graphic below)

Worth your time and consideration (from Jihad Watch):

The 21st Century meme of Islamophobic guilt is replacing the 20th Century meme of white guilt.

Excerpt from Breitbart's article Anti-Islam Filmmaker Donated Million Dollars To Obama Campaign below the fold:
Blame the movie.

Blame the movie.

Blame the movie.

Even though "the movie" was on YouTube for months prior to the collective indignation of thousands of Middle Eastern Islamists all coming together on the eleventh anniversary of September 11th (through wild coincidence, no doubt), we are being told by our government and our media overlords that we must blame the movie.

You see, if we blame the movie for the burning of our foreign outposts and the brutal murders of four Americans (including our Libyan ambassador who was reportedly raped), we won't blame the burners and the looters and the murderers and the rapists.

You see, if we blame the movie for the Middle East burning, we won't blame the Islamists who are doing the burning and looting and raping and murdering.

Which means we won't further connect the dots and blame Obama's failed Middle East policy; the Obama Doctrine of backing away from the region and allowing events to unfold as America stands idly by -- as the Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood grab hold of power in Egypt, a country that was once our largest and closest ally.

Blame the filmmaker.

Hunt him.

Out him.

Demonize him....
Read the rest and watch the video HERE.

Meanwhile, as of September 16, 2012, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia has called for the international criminalization of abusing great prophets. The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar in Egypt has called for the same.  Several others, including Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey and Hezbollah Secretary-General Nasrallah of Lebanon (Watch the video!), have called for the same.

Any such criminalization would serve as feeding the crocodile.


  1. Excerpt from this recent essay by Daniel Greenfield:

    The Freedom to be Silenced

    In March 1937, the State Department apologized on behalf of the United States to Adolf Hitler for comments made about him by the Mayor of New York City, Fiorello LaGuardia.

    “In this country the right of freedom of speech is guaranteed by the constitution to every citizen and is cherished as a part of the national heritage,” James C. Dunn of the State Department said. “This however does not lessen the regret of the government when utterances either by private citizens or by public officials speaking in an individual capacity give offense to a government with which we have official relations. I very earnestly deprecate the utterances which have thus given offense to the German government. They do not represent the attitude of this government toward the German government.”

    75 years later the great tradition of American diplomats apologizing to mass murderers for the American tradition of freedom of speech remains alive and well.

    The first response from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was to apologize for “those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined in saying, “The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”

    Following the same script, Obama said, “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”

    Even in the face of the brutal murders of its own people, the State Department was relentlessly holding to the line that freedom of speech must take a backseat to respect for Islam....

    Is it any wonder that imams are calling for further measures against the United States and our freedoms? These imams and others smell weakness!

  2. So, they are using the Alinsky Method on the film maker? Sounds like standard operating procedure for a community organizer!

  3. I don't see how free speech has been limited.

    The so called film has received more attention than the makers could have imagined.

  4. Ducky, it's part of a larger movement to silence those who would criticize Islam. There have been efforts at the UN to impose anti-blasphemy laws, and we have some of the most open speech laws in the world. It is shocking even to Europeans how much we citizens can get away with in this country.

    Free speech is under attack.

  5. Ducky; Hillary should have defended the film and the filmmaker's right to do so. We have a First Amendment still, after all.

    She was very very wrong in what she said.

  6. The film maker gave Obama a million dollars. AOW, that is rich, I mean laughable rich. He donates a million dollars and Obama goes after him for his freedom of speech.

    Right Truth

  7. I ware the Islamophbe badge with honor and I will not be silenced!

  8. The link below is on topic in a broader sense.

    If you're a cat lover, do not look at THIS!

  9. “Freedom of thought and belief ends where the freedom of thought and belief of others start." (from the links)
    Umm... WHAT?! How is that even possible? Seriously, how. Unless everyone agrees (1984) or some beliefs are more equal to others (Animal Farm). Freedom of speech under attack... yep. Massive attack. And what do we do? Apologize. AGAIN. Did we learn NOTHING AT ALL FLIPPIN ALL from WWII? We tried that! It failed! And it is failing again. The radical part of Islam will stop at nothing to fulfill their religion and crush Western values... because they stand in stark opposition to the medieval values of Islam. We cannot appease one who wishes to destroy us, sorry. Honestly, we are acting like an abused child- we try and appeal the abuser out of a strange hope they will be compassionate and stop, failing to see that that only compels the abuser to keep it up, since they smell fear and that kind of power is intoxicating. Give an inch, they will take a mile. We're giving a mile at this rate.

    And the film sparked it my *. It did not. A stupid YT video would not spark this much controversy, unless Islam was THAT over-sensitive, and if they are, we can't help them. At all. They need to grow a skin. And a film that's been out for MONTHS... ya... not random, planned. Maybe the film did spark it... in the sense that they saw the PERFECT scapegoat and decided to take advantage of a good (for them) situation.

    And now we have protests world-wide, and calls to kill (via the UN) free speech. Will they stop if we do? Or just demand more, and more and more... and rebel anyways. History might be the best example here- in the past, has giving in to Islam ever worked? The lack of Constantinople seems to suggest otherwise.

    So now what? Continue to appease the abuser? Roll over and play dead? Or... fight back? But noooo we must be tolerant. Which leaves appeasement (didn't work anytime in the past...) or roll over (like England, see where that got them? They still have revolts!). Or stop being idiots, get our heads out of the sand and smell the roses. Which I doubt will happen.

    Well, we will wake up. It may be when our city burns around us, but we will. I just pray it won't be too late.


    (ps yes I'm gloomy!)

  10. People made a film.
    Those about whom the film was made supposedly kill people because of it.
    Those who made the film have run for their lives and another film maker has taken a film out of a film festival for fear of reactions.

    And Ducky doesn't see a problem to free speech. hmmm
    Sometimes, things start to become clearer, don't they?

    Always....are you hearing that the Arab and some other international papers are saying Steven was raped? This is ALL about control, not the stupid film...I think most people understand that, and I know you do.

    I keep hearing "film out of California.." Ya, all Californians voted to make a really terribly produced film that mostly reveals the truths of islamic fundamentalism. As if this state would ever have the guts. (sarc)
    Hey, maybe I should stop feeling sensitive about the California connection and start hoping people DO think we all produced it here? :-)

  11. The man was rape because he was a sexual deviant.

  12. Off topic AOW:

    I flipped "Blow-up" to color. You be the judge.

    The guy at the fountain who was just sort of standing like a lug was the girl's father. They were running through the fountain and I never really got the shot I wanted although I got several. I put another one up of that scene.

    I've been spending a lot of time down at the greenway. Target rich environment. Although I stand around for awhile at the little lunch area and haven't seen a good shot since the one you like.

  13. Well Silver, I don't know whether there was probable cause to question this guy or not. He is a convicted felon with some "financial" issues in his background.

    It is getting ridiculous. I got another stop outside Bank of America's Boston headquarters yesterday. Man, no sense of humor with those dudes.

    But the threat is more internal than international. You can make pretty good money slamming Islam.

  14. Spencer is again spot-on.

    And the link AOW left of animal cruelty...Sick. And don't psychopathic murderers usually begin with animals?

  15. I went to the doctor today for my annual check up. He tells me that I am not suffering from Islamophobic guilt. My doctor is lucky. Had he told me otherwise, I may have shot him.

  16. Not strapped, exactly. I carry a secret agent pen that shoots a single .380 round into the forehead of anyone within ten feet. But I don't take it to bed with me.

  20. Even the mooselimb in the White House is pointing a finger.

  21. Z,
    are you hearing that the Arab and some other international papers are saying Steven was raped?

    It certainly is possible that Ambassador Stevens was sodomized. Gaddafi was sodomized, wasn't he?

  22. @ AOW

    Isn't necrophilia one of most damning of Islamic sins?

  23. Mustang,
    To my knowledge, necrophilia is haram. However, recently THIS INFORMATION appeared:

    An Imam in Morocco issued a fatwa stating that necrophilia is "Halal" or religiously acceptable practice in Islam. He said that a husband has the right to have sex with his dead wife.
    The Imam, whose name is Zamzami Abdelbari, said that marriage remains valid even after death, which does not cancel the marriage link. He took as evidence a Koranic verse which says that Muslims believers will go to Paradise with their wives…

    Sheikh Zamzami said that the husband has the right to have sex with his dead wife. He added that the husband may wash the body of his dead wife and have sex with her.
    He said that the woman also has the same right but failed to explain how a woman can manage to perform sex with the corps [sic] of her dead husband.

    However, cheikh Zamzami, tempered his most unusual fatwa by stating that necrophilia, though Halal is a disgusting act that would be best avoided.

    THIS is a denial of the story -- a denial of sorts, anyway.

    You might also find THIS of interest.

    To be honest, the very idea of necrophilia disgusts me so much that I haven't done research on the topic -- with regard to Islam or otherwise.

  24. AOW beat me to this one... I was going to mention so-called "Farewell Intercourse."

    As long as you make it within six hours of death, it's OK to give your wife quite the sendoff to the hereafter... And for women, it's likely Hell no matter what they did, according to Mo!

    Now, necrophilia is indeed intrinsically vile; a extreme mental illness.

    But then, we are talking about Islamists, aren't we?
