The media is delusional on ISIS: Muslims are more scared of radicals than ‘backlash’

Published

on

The media spin on the latest terror attack in the name of ISIS is beyond simple bias, into the territory of delusion.

An orgy of evidence

NBC reported that ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack “without evidence.” HuffPo made this almost unbelievable statement in their report:

The group’s intricate involvement in each attack differs. It is currently unclear to what extent, if any, ISIS was involved in planning or inspiring the attack in New York. It’s also rare for ISIS to claim responsibility for an attack if the perpetrator is in custody, New York Times’ ISIS correspondent Rukmini Callimachi noted.

The Twitter thread HuffPo linked from Rukmini Callimachi actually refutes the argument they put forth. Callimachi makes it very clear that the attacker, Sayfullo Saipov, was directly following ISIS calls to commit acts of terror on October 31 (Halloween), using trucks, in places where there are likely a lot of pedestrians, in major western cities. How much evidence do we need here?

On Wednesday, Callimachi tweeted that Saipov “followed ISIS’ instructions to the letter.” Is that enough evidence?

ISIS doesn’t operate with W-2s and payroll, where we can track who “works” for them. If a more cut-and-dried case of ISIS-inspired (and therefore ISIS-linked) terror exists in the U.S., I think we’d be hard pressed to find it.

Back to NBC:

ISIS has made dubious claims of responsibility in the past, including claiming that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was a “soldier” of the terror organization, also without providing evidence.

As for Las Vegas, that investigation is still proceeding, with few answers made public, but lots of questions as to if Paddock operated alone (Las Vegas Sheriff Lombardo thinks he had help), and the role his girlfriend played. Nobody has definitively established a motive, and therefore, though there’s no evidence, the ISIS link has to remain a possibility until it’s disproven.

In Saipov’s case, there is an orgy of evidence linking his terror to ISIS.

Backlash?

Within hours of the attack, NBC reported that “Muslim Americans again brace for backlash.”  Thursday, the Washington Post reported “a familiar anxiety and a fear of backlash in Paterson, N.J.”

Less Than Six Hours After the NYC Terror Attack NBC Ran This Amazing Story

https://www.redstate.com/streiff/2017/11/02/nbc-muslim-backlash/On Tuesday, even as the bodies in New York City were being sorted out, NBC ran this story: Muslim Americans Again Brace for Backlash After New York Attack.

A familiar anxiety and a fear of backlash in Paterson, N.J. – The Washington Post

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/a-familiar-anxiety-and-a-fear-of-backlash-in-paterson-nj/2017/11/02/d2043e6c-bfee-11e7-97d9-bdab5a0ab381_story.html?utm_term=.e419cb5fad52&wpisrc=nl_rainbow&wpmm=1American Muslim leaders and civil rights advocates say the past two years have seen a spike in anti-Muslim rhetoric, hate crimes and harassment across the United States, fueled in part by terrorist attacks such as those in San Bernardino, Calif., and Orlando, carried out by Muslims who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State, and in part by the broad condemnations of Islam and immigrants by President Trump and his allies — responses that many American Muslims consider racist.

They fear rhetoric. They fear that non-Muslim Americans might be afraid of Muslim Americans. They are concerned that the sight of a burqa-wearing woman at Walmart, or a man dressed in traditional Middle Eastern garb might generate some kind of “backlash.”

It’s not the backlash that I worry about. What about the lash? I don’t see non-Muslims planning terror attacks, bombings, beheadings, shootings, and mass vehicular homicide against the Muslim community in Paterson, N.J., or Dearborn, Michigan, or anywhere for that matter. Yes, if this trend of Muslims committing terrorist acts in the U.S. continues, eventually there will be a backlash. There’s been a backlash in England, but it’s very limited, and based on anger that the government has done very little to address the threat of radical Islam.

Why don’t Muslims stand up to terror?

Instead of screaming to the press about backlash, why don’t Muslims stand up to terror? They are afraid.

 

Fear of reprisals? Many Muslims are quick to distance themselves from radicalized terrorists, but they are nearly incapable of working with authorities to stop the terror. The biggest target of ISIS in areas where they’re more free to operate has always been more moderate Muslims, whom they consider to be infidels and collaborators. Look at Israel, where Hamas’ brutality toward anyone even marginally opposed to terror is well-known.

In the U.S., as in England, being Muslim means accepting some who take jihad literally, and plan to kill infidels. While they might try to “steer” people away from “the path of extremism,” that path is the path of Mohammed, as NOQ Report writer Ben Wilhelm observed. In other words, they might claim it’s not “real Islam” to reporters, but to each other, they are scared to oppose it.

There’s more fear of reprisals, Fatwahs, and threats from radicalized Muslims among the Muslim population than any fear of backlash from non-Muslims. They know that Americans, and Westerners in general, are not going to start a crusade to eradicate Muslims. Under President Bush 43 and President Obama, the word “crusade” was even banned to appease Muslim fears.

Final Thoughts

The media is far too concerned with exactly the wrong things here. ISIS is publishing instructional books, issuing calls to terror, and fully justifying their theology with the very same books non-violent Muslims use. The non-violent Muslims are far more scared of radical Muslims than they are of backlash in America. Sure, it’s uncomfortable being stared at, or snickered at, in malls and movie theaters. It’s difficult to live in a culture where you are completely unassimilated. But remember, these terrorists appear to all outsiders to be assimilated Americans.

The Muslim community knows who they are. And by failing to completely (some do help I believe) thwart terrorists, they are standing aside and allowing it to happen.

If the media wants to protect the Muslim community from backlash, they need to stop denying evidence of ISIS involvement, and stop harping on the backlash.

The lash is far more dangerous, and it’s getting worse every day.

Kristy Swanson, Dean Cain receive death threats over Strzok-Page ‘FBI Lovebirds’ production

Kristy Swanson Dean Cain receive death threats over Strzok-Page FBI Lovebirds production

Conservative actors Kristy Swanson and Dean Cain are receiving death threats over a planned stage performance based on the extra-marital texts sent between FBI cohorts Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The two members of federal law enforcement have been accused of conspiring with others during the 2016 election in an effort to prevent then-candidate Trump from winning as well as possibly taking him down if he were to win, which he did.

FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers,” will be directed by Phelim McAleer and is seeking an audience from the President himself. But shortly after buzz started building around the production, threats came in on Twitter.

Watching replies in their Twitter feeds, it’s clear the abuse continues even after offenders have been reported.

What makes it worse is that this is being framed by many in the media as a “pro-Trump” production. They are literally going on stage to read publicly available text messages verbatim. If the words of FBI agents texting each other is somehow considered to be “pro-Trump” by the media, then anything that isn’t blatantly pro-Democrats can be construed as pro-Trump.

The hardest thing in show business isn’t winning awards or getting good roles. The hardest thing in show business is being conservative and handling the relentless attacks from the unhinged. Stay the course, Kristy Swanson and Dean Cain.

New Mexico county commissioners, sheriffs demand immediate action on border emergency

New Mexico county commissioners sheriffs demand immediate action on border emergency

In a letter signed by County Commission Chairs and County Sheriffs across New Mexico, Republican House Leader Jim Townsend called for all of their lawmakers on Capitol Hill to render immediate relief and to work with President Trump to end the crisis at the southern border. They declared the situation had reached the stage of full emergency in the border state and American citizens were being harmed as a result of DC’s inaction.

We elected officials in our respective New Mexico counties hereby declare that we believe the southern border immigration crisis has reached the level of an emergency situation.

This emergency must e addressed and it must be addressed immediately. Our communities do not have the resources nor the budgets to handle the massive influx of immigrants we are experiencing and are expected to experience in the very near future. Our scarce resources are in danger of being rapidly depleted to the point that we will be unable to effectively care for our own citizens and our existing homeless population, many of whom are American veterans.

We, whom you represent, request that you put politics aside and support the President of the United States in his request for the supplemental funding necessary to effectively address this crisis and provide the New Mexicans you serve with the relief we so desperately need. We implore you to protect the border and proved processes that protect immigrants and/or asylum seekers crossing into the United States properly and legally.

It is with our constituent’s [sic] support and with their well-being in mind that we request you exercise your elected duty to the people whom you serve and act now in this emergency situation to overcome the politics in addressing this humanitarian crisis with no further delay. Please work with the President to give relief and security to both New Mexicans and the immigrants entering through our southern border.

The letter was retweeted by the official White House account.

Opinion

The letter is much kinder than I would have worded it considering the untenable attempts to subvert the truth by Democrats and mainstream media. They pretend like there’s not a real problem to appease their base on the coasts. Meanwhile, American citizens and migrants alike are suffering horribly as a result of Capitol Hill’s unwillingness to act.

Until the American people acknowledge this emergency and demand the Democrats cease their indefensible stance on the crisis, they’ll continue to delay and distract as long as possible. One might argue this is their attempt to normalize illegal immigration just long enough until they can regain the White House and set us down a path of full-blown open borders.

This isn’t an immigration crisis. It’s an illegal immigration crisis.

This isn’t about bigotry. It’s about the reality of the situation.

We, as conservatives, must regain our footing on this issue. The left wants to portray this as somehow racist when in reality it’s all about our sovereignty and making sure we’re defending our borders from literal invaders. No other country is as generous to those whose first interaction with our country is to break the law by crossing the border away from designated ports of entry. Yet the Democrats continue to paint this as an issue regarding race.

We either have a country or we don’t. We need immigrants. We need those who come into the country legally, not the masses who intend to file for asylum so they can be released to the interior for a time. The truth of this situation is such that if we had an honest media, the vast majority of Americans would be allowed to recognize the truth based solely on the facts alone. But we don’t have an honest media. We have a media that has a progressive agenda and they’re willing to defend that agenda to the detriment of the nation.

Quote

“We must protect our borders now!” – Jim Townsend

Final Thoughts

New Mexico is ground zero of the migrant crisis. While citizens and migrants suffer, both the whole of the Democratic Party and most of mainstream media continues to stick their heads in the sand. This has reached the point of lunacy.

President gives AG Barr unilateral authority to declassify 2016 campaign spying documents

President gives AG Barr unilateral authority to declassify 2016 campaign spying documents

The investigation into the investigators is now in full swing as President Trump signed an order for U.S. intelligence organizations to quickly and fully cooperate with Attorney General William Barr’s multiple investigations into spying that took place against the Trump campaign during the 2016 elections.

In a statement by the White House, the President also noted that Barr would have unilateral authority to declassify documents related to his investigations.

“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.”

Final Thoughts

If this is handled properly, and there’s no reason to believe it won’t be, the President will have ammunition to use against Democrats while they continue to try to collect their own. It bodes ill for the nation that Democrats continue to press investigation after investigation, but this can act to counterbalance their narrative.

Meanwhile, Congress is unable to get anything done while the left continues to do focus solely on taking down the President and winning the White House.

The positive in all this is we may finally get to see the depths of the conspiracy against the Trump campaign and how our elected officials as well as law enforcement and intelligence agencies tried to defy the will of the people.
