Two Contradictory Claims the Left Urges On Us

1. To speak of Islamist violence, or to suggest there is a problem in Islam, is racist, and hateful, and irrational, and "islamophobic."

2. It is so predictable that Islamists will kill you if you say something "anti-Islamic" that victims of murder attempts can be said to have brought their attacks on themselves.


Two other hard-to-reconcile claims:

1. Islam is compatible with Western values.

2. We're going to have to change some core Western values to avoid violence from our new Muslim friends.

See Pim Fortyn for an idea.

He wasn't killed by a Muslim (just a rabid Lefty who was acting on their behalf), but he was a strong voice in opposition to widespread immigration from Islamic countries because they were incompatible with his country's culture. So he got no sympathy, regardless of his sexual preference.

The left doesn't need logic, or facts, or consistency. Not when the only end is more gov't power (controlled, of course, by the left).

And, the GOP is largely on this train, as most of the GOP backs the left's agenda. The GOP's only dispute with the left is that the GOP wants to control the gov't. The GOP has no dispute with any leftist idea to enlarge the gov't.

If so, then someone eventually will internalize the rules of engagement and act accordingly. Even it's only 0.01% of 100 million people who call themselves Christians, that still leaves you with 10,000 Lutherans, Presbyterians and such who think that "skinning people who mock the Lord" is how they should operate. You would think that the left (and those pussies on the right who got the vapors from Geller) would understand this. And you would be wrong.

Step 1: Advertise a fake "draw the prophet" art competition to be held at the Astrodome. Set prize at... 1 Million Dollars.

Step 2: Install Tupac Hologram Technology throughout astrodome

Step 3: Stage fake event, wait for ISIS

Step 4: Allow ISIS seemingly unfettered access to fake event.

Step 5: Broadcast hilarious ISIS response when they realize bullets pass harmlessly through Tupac Holograms seemingly enjoying themselves at said event.

Step 5: Implode the Astrodome.

As I've said many times. Don't underestimate one's enemies. It's unfortunate that ISIS isn't as dumb as we'd wish them to be. I'm really afraid that the next time an event that is specifically intended to mock muzzies (which I love, btw) will not be attacked. Instead another event, perhaps even in another city will happen. You know, like a live stage show for children.

ISIS is among us now (thanks to the assholes in DC). We need to start expanding our awareness to scenarios that seem outside of the box.

Because nobody here is going to change for you. No matter how much the liberals lie about it.

By the way, democracy doesn't mean you get to change what other people say or do because you have rights. It should occur to you everyone else has "rights" also.

Hot tip:

loosen the lug nuts while the car is still on the ground. Use your body weight by stepping on the tire iron if you need to.

Then, once they're all (slightly) loose, jack the car up.

Will save you a lot of energy.

It's written in legalese, so yeah.

They use phasing like "more probably true than not true" and things like that.

But the take home is that they thoroughly de-bunked the theory/excuse that the ball deflation was caused by atmospheric conditions. Their consultants ran a butt load of tests that de-bunk that. And the balls' under inflation was pretty big. They have text messages talking about a "needle" and the consultants confirmed how long it would take to deflate a dozen footballs -- plenty of time when the guy took them into the bathroom.

Anybody who didn't sleep through elementary school science class, or anyone who was ever given a magnet toy (and there are thousands of them) as a child, and who had the curiosity to try to see what the magnet would and would not attract, would know as a simple matter of fact, that a magnet won't attract aluminum, or copper, or brass, or plastic...

Now, understanding why that is the case gets you quite deep into physics, but the simple fact that some materials are magnetic, and some aren't is scarcely less obvious than the fact the Sun rises daily.

They are a team a lot of us love to hate. In my case, it's mostly because I can't stand Belichick, who seems like a humorless a-hole.

I think Brady is an excellent QB, but it looks like at some point (unknown when, but more than just one game) he decided he needed an edge. Maybe he had a hand injury? I don't know.

I don't like cheating. My D&D alignment is Lawful-Lawful, lol! And I need the distraction, so that's why I'm reading this thing. But it's not about hating on the team as much as it's a detective story of sorts.

496 Back when my wife and I first started dating she called me over because she could not get the lug nuts off of her tire. I put my ratchet wrench on it and almost lifted the car off the ground. (It was a sub-compact Dodge.) I had to go down to the autozone and buy an impact wrench to get it off. Some wise ass at the tire store had put it on with a mal-adjusted air wrench. Told her to never go back there again. She is lucky he didn't twist the lug studs off.


Anyway she went on a trip to visit her sister in NC and the engine blew. I was down in GA when she called me while visiting parents. Had to drive back and meet her at the bus station. I said good riddance to bad rubbish. I had a friend at work with a used Toyota he wanted to sell. That worked out fine.

Whoa, whoa, whoa there.

My mother's paternal ancestors left Devonshire (small town northwest of Exeter) because of Cromwell's persecution of the area.

510 I am fighting this battle on Facebook right now. And you know what? It reminds me what they used to say about rape victims. "The way she was dressed, she had it coming." If they mess with me again, that's what I am posting. Because I am tired of this "it's like waving a red flag in front of a bull". No, it is not. We are dealing with human beings and they are expected to ignore provocation in the same way that Christians and Jews are expected to ignore it. And if they want to live in a country where blasphemy against the prophet is a crime, then maybe they should go to a different country.

512 any group that cannot take mocking without resorting to violence can't be called a religion ... a cult maybe ...

513 But really, it's quite easy for them to hold these views. The murderous scum doesn't represent 'true' Islam.

^^^^^^^
THIS

Mercy. I can't tell you many leftist friends on Facebook have used that argument on me. That, and "Christians were burning people at the stake back in 1400 and Islam is only 1,400 years old, so they're the same!"

I'm seriously leaning toward the idea that leftism is some sort of brain disorder.

514 ISIS is not Islamic, BUT, if we capture an ISIS warrior, they are required to eat halal food and be given prayer rugs. Because Muslim.

515 Two contradictory values the Left pushes in regards to sex and gender:

1) Feminism can only be fully embraced and understood by females that were born female, as transgendered females being born male still, in fact, benefit from the patriarchy.

2) There are no real differences between males and females. Any perceived differences are the product of societal brainwashing, ironically usually brainwashing for which the patriarchy itself is responsible.

Ace (and many others) is (are) 100% accurate in stating that in order to be a liberal progressive, one must not think about one's beliefs. Ever.

516 Both of those leftist contradictions are good, but I would add another:
1. Mocking or blasphemy of Islam is hateful, should be socially unacceptable, and Muslim violence to stop it is understandable.
2. Mocking or blasphemy of Christianity (eg: piss christ, Virgin Mary having sex, Last Temptation Of Christ) is cutting edge art. Christians are rude to complain about it, or try and defund it, and of course any violent response would be totally beyond the pale.
