Has Islam Already Beaten America?

Notice that we are besieged by the Ground Zero mosque story. It is constantly on the news and the Imam gets on every TV in the country and makes one outrageous statement after another. He says we have more blood on our hands than Al Qaeda, that we are the most dangerous killers on the planet, etc., etc. We may as well have a poison spewing, anti-American machine sitting in the living room of every household.

And with every moment that we construe this mosque and the Muslims in terms of freedom of religion and freedom of speech, we miss the point. The point is that the 9/11 attack and all the terrorist activities in the United States and Europe in the past 10 years minimum are in the name of Islam. That's a fact.

So, there should be no free passes for Islam and I don't give a damn what they say about their rights. The US Government's job is to protect our individual rights inside the borders of the United States. In order to do its job, it needs to be the gatekeeper. It doesn't let any yahoo in here who isn't willing to be a good neighbor and operate by our laws.

The Muslim religion as now constituted is not a candidate for having mosques in this country. Why? Because it advances Sharia Law and that is a political act, not just speech nor religion. When it sets aside Sharia Law as something it seeks to institute here, then it is welcome. And our government needs to say that straight out and be done with it. If the s--t hits the fan, so be it. It needs to.

If there are moderate Muslims who can show that they are not interested in establishing Sharia Law here, then they need to speak out and voice an opinion different from the current spokesmen for the Ground Zero mosque. If that doesn't happen, I think we should treat these people as the children they are and relegate them all to the same decision. No dice.

The hardest thing to face during this Obama administration is that we the people have been abandoned by our government. It does nothing for the people - maybe a few cronies and partisan groups - but that's it and that is not governance. That's special interest Chicago thug politics. And how disgusting is that.
