North Carolina clangs its brass.
The state Senate on Friday passed a bill that would keep courts from recognizing Sharia law.
While proponents of the legislation said it would keep people safe from foreign laws, critics derided the bill as sending a message of intolerance and bigotry to followers of Islam.
Go ahead, laugh for a while. I did. It took me several minutes to stop. I mean, when the most intolerant religion-slash-political-ideology on this planet calls something “intolerant and bigoted”, you know you’re winning. The provision was actually attached to another measure that would impose stricter regulations on abortion providers in NC. But the libs were so busy trying to argue the abortion regulations that they didn’t even notice the itty bitty bill emphasizing Constitutional law as being supreme. It was rather glorious.
Now called House Bill 522, the provision’s contents haven’t changed. It reminds judges that the U.S. and N.C. constitutions are the law of the land and no foreign law can supersede them. Sometimes international laws are used in court as evidence before a judge, or in written opinions. But this bill would stop judges from considering foreign law when it violates a citizen’s constitutional rights.
I have a big problem with Shari’a law. A very big problem. That particular *ahem* rule of law tramples over my rights as a human being, not to mention as a woman, a mother and a Christian. And I find it hilarious that liberals are quick to defend its use over our rule of law, when its a religious rule of law. And by “hilarious”, I mean “sickening”. What about that whole “separation of church and state” stuff liberals are always shoving down our throats?
The danger doesn’t come from the legislation’s exact wording, said Omid Safi, a professor of religious studies at UNC-Chapel Hill. He contends this wave of anti-foreign-law legislation comes from a fundamental misunderstanding of Sharia law and a “bigoted” perception of Muslims.
“We would be delighted to have a conversation about what Sharia law actually is and what it is not,” he said. “It would be important, if we’re passing legislation on the topic, for (lawmakers who support the bill) to actually benefit from the expertise of people who might actually know something about the subject.”
Here’s the thing, Omar baby:
WE DON’T GIVE A SHIT WHAT SHARI’A IS OR ISN’T. WE ALSO DON’T GIVE A SHIT WHAT AN “EXPERT” ON IT HAS TO CONTRIBUTE. WHY? BECAUSE THE SUPREME LAW OF *THIS* COUNTRY IS THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. END OF FUCKING DISCUSSION.
And if you and your ilk don’t like it, go back to a country that does, fuck you very much.
Why is Bin Laden’s son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith being charged in a US criminal court, but Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American citizen, not given the same due process, instead being blown up by a drone strike?
Is it Opposite Day? Did I not get the freakin’ memo??
I picked a hell of a time to quit drinking.
Imagine if you will, that you decide to make a poster for a school project. And the subject of the poster is a map of gang violence crosslisted with demographic data. And your facts are readily available to you through the library and the census bureau. And you point out that the most violent gang activity is in the predominantly black neighborhoods.
Then imagine that the black gang members who attend your school see that poster, and decide to burn down the hallways, break windows, and cause bodily harm to those who get in their way.
And when the smoke clears, imagine the school decides to expel YOU, because you made the gang members angry enough to riot. You insulted them by pointing out the obvious. It’s ok for the gang members to know that, but NOT ok for the rest of the people to know that. That’s an open secret they want to keep.
Well, imagine no more.
Here’s the first line from the LA Times (not linking it, just follow the links if need to, but that whole story is slimy).
“Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”
Just after midnight?? REALLY??? And just why were there soooo many cameras at the ready?? Of course, he was “voluntarily” escorted away, for questioning, of course.
Do you see what happened?? This man, who has every right to make and put out a movie on freakin’ YOUTUBE, is blamed by this inept administration for the wilful rioting in the Middle East, which culminated in the killing and desecration of FOUR AMERICANS. And what does the administration do? Go after the killers? Noooooooooope.
This administration willingly submitted to the will of Allah.
You think I’m wrong? Well, look at it this way: Muslims decide to use this movie as an excuse to riot, destroy, and kill, because their so-called prophet was insulted. And what do Obama and Co. do? They give the Muslims what they want: punish the blasphemer, and apologize for his actions. So now, the rioting fucktards know that all they have to do is burn and pillage and kill, and we will do anything they ask.That is submission, the very definition of Islam.
Muslims (and I don’t add “extremists” for a reason you will read later) will always have an excuse to riot. ALWAYS. Because those who do not submit to Islam will always be infidels, and need to be eradicated from their version of a perfect world.
And in case you think I am lumping all Muslims together, ask yourselves this: just how many of the “moderate” Muslims who actually believe in “peace” are speaking against the violence? Their silence is deafening. Until they begin to speak out against the violence of their jihadist brethren, I will have issues.
That is a g0000000000gle interactive map of Muslim Protests since September 11, 2012. Click the link for embiggenification marvelosity.
And the administration thinks this is about a YouTube movie that has been in cyberspace for months?? Yeah, riiiiiiiight….
Seriously, define Spring. Because this isn’t installing a vote of confidence here.
Egyptian military judges dropped convictions against Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Khairat el-Shater, clearing the nominee of the nation’s dominant political party to run in the election, the group’s lawyer said.
I understand that we over on this side of the world did see that an overthrow of Mubarak would leave a vacuum ripe for the Muslim Brotherhood to take. But it was also my understanding that the Egyptian military was against the takeover by the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Brotherhood said March 31 that el-Shater was its candidate for the presidential election that begins May 23 and May 24, making him one of the favorites to win and potentially increasing tensions between the once-banned group and the generals who currently rule the nation.
Why would military judges clear the way for their opposition?
It appears that some in the lower ranks and even not-so-low of the MB do not like the fact that their up and coming new leader is in fact, a millionaire. And no one seems to question how he has held on to his fortune while being incarcerated, and while Egypt’s economy is deteriorating at an alarming rate, having passed ludicrous speed and now approaching plaid. But Egypt has always been an anomaly in the region: practicing Islam while protecting idolatry for their economical use, decrying excess while enjoying the tourist dollars that Sharm al Sheik, the “Riviera of the Middle East”, brings in. It’s hypocritical, but then again, so is their so-called religion.
The sooner that hellhole goes to pot, the better. Chalk up another one for the Prez.
One of my favorite posts at Bring the Heat, Bring the Stupid are the videos of what Brad likes to call “‘Splodey”. Watching something blow up is therapeutic to me. Makes me feel all calm, and that all is right with the world, even if only for the few seconds of beautiful incendiary footage.
Seriously, doesn’t this make you feel good??
If I smoked, I would soooo need a cigarette right about now
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
Feel free to discuss in the comments.
Gah….and I was having such a good morning. I just had to go look at the news:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced today that the Department of Defense will begin allowing Muslim and Sikh students who wear an Islamic head scarf (hijab) or a turban to participate in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC).
Now, I don’t have anything against Sikhs at all. But the whole point of JROTC is to help groom kids for a future in the military, a uniform military. But because one young woman had to transfer out of her ROTC class due to her hijab, CAIR had to make sure to exert influence.
CAIR requested constitutionally-protected religious accommodations for the girl and for future Muslim JROTC participants.
I know for a fact that Catholics cannot carry a rosary in their hands while in uniform. I have never seen a Jew wearing a yamulke while in uniform (please, correct me if I’m wrong). What I do know is that no complaints about that have ever been filed by Christians or Jews. But I guess this is where the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Soon enough, young men will be allowed to sport beards. Looking at the bright side, at least we will know who they are, and where to aim, if necessary.
I do wonder if they will let my kids show their crucifixes now.
Huge cheers went up in UNESCO after delegates voted to approve the membership Monday. One shouted “Long Live Palestine!” in French.
Palestinian officials are seeking full membership in the United Nations, but because that effort is expected to take some time, they are separately trying to get membership at Paris-based UNESCO.
U.S. lawmakers have threatened to withhold $80 million in aid from UNESCO, which is a rathole of corruption in itself. But the Fwench don’t care, as long as they can spite the Israelis and the Americans. The big bonus is that, if Palestinians get UN recognition, the Fwench can then start shipping the “undesirable” second-class citizenry of their country back to the Middle Eastern hellhole from where it spawned, thus helping Fwance re-establish its cultural hegemony. Because you know…the Palis were there first, along with unicorns.
The Fwench may have surrendering down to an artform, but they sure learned a thing or two from that little Austrian guy.
Big news this morning?? Muammar Qaddafi may have been captured. Or killed. We don’t know, yet.
Conflicting reports emerged on Thursday that Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi has been captured or killed.
“Qaddafi is dead. He is absolutely dead… he was shot in both legs and in the head. The body will be arriving in Misrata soon,” media spokesman Abdullah Berrassali told Sky News.
Libyan TV channel Libya lil Ahrar, meanwhile, said the ousted dictator was in custody.
The conflicting reports come on the heels of Qaddafi’s hometown of Sirte falling to the Transitional National Council’s forces. It was the last stronghold of Quaddafi supporters. If indeed Quaddafi is captured or killed, that means that Libya is under rebel control, and isn’t that what our administration wanted when we sent troops to Libya? Because, you know, this administration wants to end the wars and all, so we sent troops and fought from the air to end the Iraq War, or some such thing. I get confused.
I’m not sure Qaddafi gone is a good thing, or a bad thing, politically speaking. Personally, I can’t wait to hear if the bastich is servicing Satan.
*Goes to read the news again*
Still awaiting confirmation, dammit. I hate waiting…
UPDATE: cellphone image of alleged capture below the fold (more…)
