Islamic Artillery in Action

Despite there being nothing Islamic about the Islamic State according to the Islamophile in Chief, ISIS terrorists pray to Allah by reciting from the Koran before firing upon the civilized world, just like other jihadis. To quote Walid Shoebat,

Every time […] ISIS launches a rocket, RPG or canon fire, or a Palestinian throws a rock at the Jews, they pray out loud from the Quran “Wama Ramayta Inama-Allaha Rama”.

English: “And you launched not when you launched but it was Allah who launched” (Quran 8:17)

In other words, Allah is the one who aims, launches and hits the target and not the Jihadi.

Here’s how Quran.com translates 8:17:

And you did not kill them, but it was Allah who killed them. And you threw not, [O Muhammad], when you threw, but it was Allah who threw that He might test the believers with a good test. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.

Let’s see how responsive Allah is to their show of devotion:

That was a good test, all right.

If we had leadership, we could crush these savages like bugs. But unless we can throw off liberal rule, the bugs are likely to overrun us.

Tie-Dyed Tyranny

Now that hard tyranny has temporarily given way to soft tyranny in the West, we don’t have to worry about gulags and concentration camps, at least for now. But that hardly means that we are free. Bill Whittle reports on Gang Green and the Government Staff Infection in the Empire of the Ecoweenies:

Liberals warned us back in the 60s that the issue is never the issue. So no one should be surprised that as Whittle correctly observes, environmentalism is not about the environment. What it is about is what excessive government is always about. George Orwell described it as a boot stamping on a human face.

Fire Department Chief Denounces Displays of Patriotism as “Racist”

Things have changed a bit since September of 2001. Who could have imagined in those times not only that we would elect a pro-Islamic president, but that fire department personnel would be forbidden from displaying patriotic stickers?

Some firefighters at a west suburban [Chicago] fire department have been relieved of their duties, for refusing to remove patriotic flags from their lockers and helmets.

Maywood [Illinois] Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh says there’s a culture of racism in the department and issued [a] memo saying all decals and stickers, including American flags and military stickers, be removed from lockers and helmets.

One of the thought criminals in question is black; turns out blacks can be racist after all.

[T]he tension started with the chief ordering an American flag be removed from the inside of Fire Station 2. It was a new flag the firefighters had bought with their own money to replace the tattered one that had been there for three years.

When they weren’t told why, firefighters put American flags on their lockers.

Then came the memo.

When David Flowers Jr., the union president, wouldn’t take down the Marine decal on his locker, the same locker that was his father’s, a Maywood firefighter and Vietnam vet, he was relieved of duty and sent home.

Pushback forced Bronaugh to back down a little:

Firefighters may return to work and can keep their American flag stickers posted, Maywood Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh said, after he was the target of massive pressure from the public. However the firefighters say that they are still filing a hostile work grievance against the Chief.

Some firefighters told Top Right News that the Chief is still banning stickers such as for the branches of service in which they served, 9/11 remembrances, etc, and say many feel that Mayor Perkins should fire Bronaugh for making irresponsible and inflammatory statements alleging false “racism,” and retaliating against those displaying the American flag.

If you agree the Chief should GO, you can (respectfully) contact the Mayor of Maywood, IL, Edweena Perkins, here, or call 708-450-4486.

Shine a light on them and they tend to retreat back under the stove. But as soon as the public’s back is turned, they creep forward again.

Army Lieutenant Colonel Not Allowed Into Daughter’s School Due to Uniform

How many people are going to devote themselves to risking life and limb on behalf of what’s left of our country when soldiers are held in such low regard that a 24-year Army veteran like Lieutenant Colonel Sherwood Baker was not allowed onto campus to speak with his daughter’s counselor at a high school in Rochester, Michigan because students might find his uniform offensive?

According to Lt. Col. Baker’s wife Rachel,

“Before he was allowed in, the security guard stopped him and said sorry [you're] not allowed in the school. Security told him men and women in uniform weren’t allowed because it may offend another student.”

School officials deny they have any such policy. But excluding soldiers in uniform would be consistent with the moonbat ideology that prevails in schools.

Darwin was right about this much: if something doesn’t deserve to survive, it probably won’t for long. When stories like this don’t even surprise us anymore, we are looking at a choice between a radical change of course and oblivion.

Quote of the Day

To quote the slimy apparatchik atop Obama’s corrupt and hyper-politicized IRS, John Koskinen:

“Whenever we can, we follow the law.”

Bureaucrats aren’t known for speaking clearly. What he probably meant was, “Whenever it is convenient, we follow the law.”

It isn’t always convenient to follow the tax laws, by which we are partially enslaved by the federal government. But the little people have to follow these laws anyway.

Where is Trey Gowdy to chew this clown a new one?

Shoplifter Attempts Getaway in Stolen Motorized Wheelchair

Not even the many crimes committed by Barack Obama himself (funneling $billions to his campaign donors through green energy boondoggles, running guns to Mexican drug lords, using the IRS to repress ideological opponents, illegally shortchanging Chrysler bondholders, attacking Libya without congressional approval in violation of the War Powers Act, illegally exchanging five terrorist commanders in exchange for a deserter without notifying Congress, illegally rewriting ObamaCare on the fly dozens of times, violating immigration law by unilaterally imposing the DREAM Act, et cetera) capture the quintessence of his age as well as this one:

After stealing $600 worth of merchandise from Walmart, a Michigan woman made her getaway on one of the store’s motorized wheelchairs, according to cops who collared her two miles from the retailer.

Shirley Mae Mason, 46, was arrested Monday night and charged with the theft of the $1200 electric cart and six bags stuffed with clothing.

During questioning by police, Mason said that she decided to swipe the motorized cart after failing to secure a car ride from the store. Mason, according to a police report, said she just “didn’t feel like walking.”

Ms. Mason isn’t the first to ride off in a Walmartmobile:

Last month, an 18-year-old New Mexico man was arrested for stealing a similar Walmart cart and driving it to a meeting with his probation officer at an Albuquerque courthouse.

It is a great time to be a criminal, and a better time to be an arrogant, lazy criminal. Just ask Obama.

Transgender Person Achieves 60-Inch Derriere

The “fundamental transformation” that Obama has been inflicting on America as he promised he would isn’t the only grotesque transmogrification to occur in this age of moonbattery. At the individual level,

A transgender woman [i.e., a man pretending to be a woman] has had more than 100 black-market injections to achieve [his] 60-inch bum – despite [his] friends dying due to similar operations.

Tatiana Williams, 42, has spent [$97,200] sculpting [his] body over the past 20 years – including injections that have filled each bum cheek with a[n] incredible 8lb of silicone. …

[Mr.] Williams, who lives in Miami, Florida, has had breast enhancements, chin implants, facial fillers and laser surgery – all without visiting a licensed surgeon.

Despite the horrific risks involved, the black market is cheaper for now, until ObamaCare can be ramped up to cover all this stuff.

It is only a matter of time until 16 pounds of gunk injected into his buttocks catches up with Mr. Williams. Then we can all start paying for his medical procedures. But for now he proclaims:

“I have no regrets about being the beautiful woman I am.”

Right. Maybe after some backroom procedures, I could proclaim myself to be a beautiful tiger or a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The only difference is that I wouldn’t be cheered on by the social engineers in the media.

Crustacean Liberation

Enjoy lobster while you can. It tastes far too good for liberals not to want to ban it. A 49-year-old woman was arrested on a “public order offence” while taking part in “a silent vigil [that] was held for lobsters outside a Cambridge [UK] restaurant” — namely the Riverbar Steakhouse and Grill.

Edmund Maile of Animal Rights Cambridge and the United Shellfish Front (I swear I’m not making this up) proclaims:

“Lobsters are sensitive and intelligent creatures who are persecuted in ways which would be deemed unacceptable in other species, and this campaign, through appealing to the conscience of restauranteurs and members of the public, is designed to challenge this injustice.”

According to Edmund, the ends justify the means when it comes to fighting for the human rights of oppressed lobsters:

“Although our group does not encourage or partake in unlawful behaviour, any kind of activity that may be regarded an ‘extreme’ response to animal abuse is unlikely to be significant when compared to the harm that millions of lobsters suffer.”

Agnes Trzak, PhD researcher of social justice (I didn’t make that up either; no really), adds further rhetoric:

“We, the public, would find it unacceptable and outrageous if other species were to be killed in the same place we bring our families for a pleasant dining experience.”

If the British could effectively end the slave trade in the 19th century and hold off the Nazis in the 20th, maybe they can save the lobsters in the 21st.

Army Frets That Too Many Combat Commanders Are White

Maybe it is for the best that the Obama Regime doesn’t seem to be serious about taking on the Islamic State. An actual war, rather than a few air strikes while Obama waits for us to lose interest, might not turn out so well. Under our current Commander in Chief, the US Army has a serious problem:

U.S. Army sociologists are worried that a lack of black officers leading its combat troops will have detrimental effect on minorities and lead to fewer black officers in top leadership posts. …

The Army reports that only 10 percent of its active-duty officers are black, which has contributed to its dearth of black officers leading soldiers with occupational specialties in infantry, armor and artillery.

This despite blacks making up 13% of the population.

Suggesting that blacks may be statistically less likely to make the best combat commanders for a variety of cultural if not biological reasons would instantly destroy any military career. Those who don’t want to be denounced as thought criminals will find it much safer to chalk up the slight disparity to “discrimination,” no matter how preposterous that explanation may be given the ongoing political environment.

No reason to panic. According to Brigadier General Ronald Lewis, “The leadership does have an action plan in place.”

One of the Army’s plans for addressing the issue will be to put more emphasis on recruiting and mentoring minority officers.

Maybe they will adapt the slogan, “The Marines are looking for a few good men” to “The Army is looking for a few men who don’t have to be all that good, so long as they aren’t Caucasian.”

Where taking on ISIS or any other enemy is concerned, the problem is not the politically incorrect pigmentation of Army officers, but the mentality that would place discriminating against qualified whites at a higher priority than winning wars.

At this point no foreign opponent will be decisively defeated until we defeat the enemy within — liberalism.

At least the Commander in Chief isn’t white.

Anti-Christian Fascists Ban Gideon Bibles From Penn State Hotel Rooms

Meat isn’t the only thing being subjected to the progressive approach to eradication. There is also the Bible:

Penn State has removed Gideon Bibles from hotel rooms after a complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) accused the Bibles of advocating the killings of nonbelievers.

“The bible [sic] calls for killing nonbelievers, apostates, gays, ‘stubborn sons,’ and women who are not virgins on their wedding nights,” FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor said in a statement last week. “What is obnoxious in a private hotel, however, becomes inappropriate and unconstitutional in state-run lodgings.”

A spokesperson from the university has confirmed to Campus Reform that the Bibles have been removed from individual guest rooms following an inquiry from FFRF earlier in the summer.

FFRF is a gang of militant atheist thugs based in Madison, Wisconsin, which has set about poking its nose into other people’s business in every corner of the country to advance the progressive goal of abolishing Christianity.

Penn State is not the first school that FFRF has gotten to remove Bibles from its hotel rooms. In February, Iowa State University removed the book from its hotel rooms following a complaint from the organization.

If people will let themselves be convinced that Gideon Bibles must be removed from hotel rooms because of the allegedly objectionable content, it is hardly a stretch to foresee a nationwide ban if liberalism continues to prevail.

Time for a Change

The wise good Samaritan does not do kind deeds unarmed:

What started out as an apparent good deed early Sunday morning in Huntsville, Alabama, quickly turned into what police described as an apparent attempted robbery gone terribly wrong for the suspect who was fatally shot by the would-be victim.

According to local media, just before 3 a.m. the suspected robber asked the man for a ride from a gas station to a nearby housing project. The man, whose name has not been made public, agreed and gave the suspect a ride.

Once the two men arrived at the residence, the suspect sprayed mace in the man’s face. Fearing for his safety and not knowing what the man’s intentions were, the driver of the vehicle then pulled out a handgun and shot the suspect, later identified as 56-year-old Clifton Fletcher.

Fletcher fled from the car and the driver wiped the mace from his face, as best he could, and drove away to safety before calling 911, another media outlet reported. …

James Burgess, who lives in the house across the street from where Fletcher’s body was found, witnessed part of the aftermath. …

“There’s always shootings, always robberies,” he said.

“It is just about time for people [to] stop, pay attention, get a job, quit trying to rob folks,” Burgess said. “People are starting to defend themselves a lot lately, and it’s just, it’s time for a change.”

Amen.

The Disturbing Cluelessness of Ceci Velasquez

She has the right gender and ethnicity, what else do you need? The alarming candidacy of Ceci Velasquez for Arizona State Representative gives an indication of the quality of potential ruler the Democrat Party has been producing:

The woman knows the issues in Arizona about as well as she knows the issues in Mongolia. But no doubt she will provide reliable support for the hard left after she is elected, so long as a party apparatchik is assigned to tell her how to vote. Her future in politics looks bright.

Given the ongoing demographic transformation, the vastly preferable candidate Aaron Borders will need all the help he can get.

California State University System Cracks Down on Christian Group

The crackdown on Christianity continues on college campuses, which were once havens of freedom:

California State University, the largest university system in the country, has officially booted InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for not allowing non-Christians to serve as leaders. …

Read the full statement here. Find previous College Fix coverage here. Watch this video by InterVarsity’s Greg Jao on what this will mean practically (i.e., money) for CSU chapters.

Somehow I doubt any of the countless militant homosexual groups that are financed with student fees at colleges across the country will be forced to accept Bible-believing Christians who reject sin as leaders.
