She rode in on a blazing Koran, quite literally. Ann Barnhardt has been taking the interwebs by storm, exorcising the demonic shrieking ass kissing free speech squelching demon of NICE from our collective midst. In response to Lindsay Graham’s finger shaking about the dire consequences of lighting a Koran on fire (what will happen if they get mad at us?), Ann made her own Koran burning video. Quoting hair raising Surahs that condone and command wife beating and marital rape, sex with pre-pubescent girls and boys, and of course, the beheading and maiming of “infidels” (that’s most of the people who read this blog and it is most certainly me) — Ann strikes at the heart of our fearful acquiescence and frenzied attempts to be “nice” and reasonable toward a philosophy that is anything but. “Religion of peace” – I DON’T THINK SO. She reads these nakedly violent passages, starkly sociopathic in tone, and swiftly lights each Surah on fire one by one. She works with a wand of outrage – naming evil as evil. And, unlike the gently naive if brave Molly Norris, who instigated the “Draw Mohammed for a Day” on Facebook and just as swiftly tried to take it back, once the horrible realization that Muslim radicals were indeed offended began to dawn… Ann doesn’t give a rat’s ass if an acolyte of Mohammed gets a hair up his ass. She’s pretty amazing! And, while I feel deeply for Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris, and am outraged on her behalf (since she had to go ghost to escape threats of death), I also can’t help but wonder if Ann is ultimately more able to stand her ground because she is an outright American Patriot and a conservative. Not a hipster, but a trader in cattle futures. Raised in eastern Kansas around cows and calves and cowboys, she is steeped in the down to the real landscape of midwestern and western boots and stirrups– common sense, no bullshit, and an abiding love of country. Ann is not reading Chomsky * and wacking off to his apologies for Islamic terror, she knows with a beautiful certainty that the United States, free enterprise, Christianity and Judaism are absolutely superior, at this point in time, to the drooling of Islamic radical misogyny and terror. Hell, she sees the issues endemic to Islam itself, radical or not. She sees Islam as being primarily a totalitarian political ideology and not a religion. Certainly, one can make a case for that.
You have to see for yourself; don’t take my word for it!
Now, tell me, why can’t “radicals” be this radical? I mean, leftists, actually, on campus or off? Why can’t they be this incensed by the Islamic mutilation of women and the rape of children, by honor killings or the beheading of various non-Muslims including Buddhists and the murder of Coptic Christians? Why do I only see the far left defending and minimizing the threat of Islamic radicalism? Who can we count on finally, to defend what is certainly a superior civilization? Possibly, the answer would surprise, even me. In fact, I am surprised, but I am also heartened And, yes, this video is campy, inadvertently, but it is also serious stuff folks.
* (and I apologize ahead of time, to Molly Norris if she is not into Chomsky or other ridiculous masturbatory anti-Americanism. And, even if she is… Let’s face it, she did come up with that brave and wondrous idea of everyone everywhere drawing Mohammed for a day to defuse the whole insanity, and I wish her only the best! God speed Molly, wherever you are. How sad and utterly wrong that already, Americans appear to have mostly forgotten you and your courage, and wit. I hope you come back out of this crucible stronger . Thank you for inspiring me! )
