Tavis Smiley reveals he’s an imbecile

Jejune is too kind. He’s a moron.

Mr Smiley, possessor of a show (unsurprisingly) on PBS, said this, the past week, of Christianity vs Islam whilst speaking with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. (Somali-born Dutch-American activist, feminist, author, and former Dutch politician. She actively opposes honor violence, child marriage and female genital mutilation.)

“Oh, Christians, every day, people walk into post offices, they walk into schools, that’s what Columbine is – I could do this all day long. There are so many more examples of Christians – and I happen to be a Christian. That’s back to this notion of your idealizing Christianity in my mind, to my read. There are so many more examples, Ayaan, of Christians who do that than you could ever give me examples of Muslims who have done that inside this country, where you live and work.”

The video is below.

  • Name for me, please, Mr Smiley, one Christian person in the US who walked into a post office and blew themselves up.
  • Name for me, please, Mr Smiley, one Christian person in the US who walked into a school and blew themselves up.
  • Name for me, please, Mr Smiley, one Christian person anywhere in the US who blew themselves up. Just one. Please.

You mentioned Columbine. Neither Eric Harris nor Dylan Klebold, who killed 13 and injured 21, indicated that they both killed in the name of Christianity. The opposite is in fact true.

They were anti-Christian, and clearly expressed that. They asked one Christ-follower, just before they murdered her, “Do you believe in God?” Upon her ‘Yes’ answer, they said “Why?” and then shot her.

Actually, given that Columbine murderers Harris and Klebold were into the ‘Goth’ culture, I cannot help wondering whether they at least flirted with the opposite (e.g. the occultic or satanic).

Give me even one US incident, Tavis Smiley, of any individual or series of individuals blowing themselves up, committing suicide, in the name of Christianity. One. Give one example. Provide verifiable evidence.

There are zero in the past 100 years.

Yes, since 1977 there have been 8 US murders targeting abortion centers in what most would say is in the name of Christianity — but even then not all were professed Christians. People mention Eric Rudolph and Scott Roeder. Heinous. But the total is still 8. They are pikers compared to, say, Major Nidal Hasan who, in 2009 killed 13 people and injured 30 specifically in the name of Islam. In one event. In the name of Islam. “Allahu Akhbar” is called a clue.

Because people were afraid of being labeled as Islamophobic, Major Hasan’s Islamic violent rhetoric was purposely overlooked. Because of fear. List for me even one example of people failing to report individuals because of fear of Christianity. One. Just one. Due to “Christianophobia.”

Let’s go to the facts.

  • Americans killed in the name of Islam on 9-11-2001: 2,996.
  • Muslims in America killed in revenge: 1.
  • Since 9/11, an additional 150 Americans have been killed in 52 separate acts of deadly Islamic terror or Islam-related honor killing in the United States.

Something tells me that Muslims may be just a bit more touchy and violent than Christians in the US. Something tells me the score is akin to 3,146 vs 8.

Thanks for the lies, Tavis Smiley.

You may now go back to your sycophantic NPR adherents who enjoy your Emo views.

The Honor Diaries: how Islam kills and mutilates women

A point that Leftists nationally — and female Leftists in particular — very pointedly AVOID because they are primarily cowardsCowards.  Womens’ advocacy groups avoid conflict with Islam like the plague — though it is Islam that treats women like dogs, like property, and worse.  The Honor Diaries:

And I’m tired of glossing over the abrogations of Islam.

Honor killings, genital mutilation and more.

Let us not forget this photograph:

Bibi Aishi Taliban Removed Her NoseAh, the loving and understanding embrace of Islam via the Taliban.

But if you’re a Muslim and you liked that above photo, you’ll absolutely rave over this:

FGM - Female Infant and Razor BladeI hope that photograph makes you wince.  Yes, that is a commercial and unsterilized razor blade held in the hand of a Muslim.  Because I say and will always say: “Islam is as Islam does.”

Give me one justification for a clitorectomy.  Andclitorectomies applied not just to infants but to juveniles and teens.  With the most immoral and prehistoric tools possible.

Does that make you “uncomfortable” and make you “doubt my sources”?  Then go do a search of your own.  You will find much worse.  And close up.  Much, much more close up.

If Islam wants to “clean up its act,” then those who commit tragedies and abhorrent acts in the name of Islam need to stop.  But they won’t.  Simple as that.

Because as far as they are concerned, they have faith on their side.

A final note: one woman who is speaking up against honor killings and forced marriages and genital mutilation at the hand of Muslim males is Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  She writes of Boko Haram here.

Let me further refresh your memories.

This is the same woman that Brandeis University banned from speaking at its site.  The Economist wrote:

EARLIER this month Brandeis University rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born women’s rights activist, saying its officials had not been fully aware of some her more scathing remarks on Islam. Conservatives have accused Brandeis of muzzling Ms Hirsi Ali and bowing to Muslim pressure groups. Liberals have wondered how the university could possibly have overlooked Ms Hirsi Ali’s condemnations, not just of radical Islam, but of Islam as such. At the risk of coming off as a postmodern multi-culti squish, it seems to me that this discussion suffers from a lack of cultural context—but not the cultural context you’re thinking of. The way Ms Hirsi Ali talks about Islam strikes American liberals as strangely intolerant, but it has its roots in the prevailing discourse on religious freedom and Islam in the country where Ms Hirsi Ali first began seriously tackling these issues: the Netherlands.

That said, even The Economist was wrong.  Ayaan Hirsi Ali knows which side of Islam gets portrayed and which side gets buried.

Imagine that.  A woman sensitive to death and mutilation.  Because she’s seen it and experienced it.

Benghazi and Boko Haram: the common delineator is Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton at senate hearingBenghazi proved to be a terrible tragedy involving the deaths of four good Americans, as is the current Boko Haram kidnapping of the 270+ girls in Nigeria.

Hillary Clinton, the smartest woman in politics, got both of those issues wrong.  She is the common delineator between these two disastrous events.  She had choices to make and she chose poorly; people died as a result of her decisions.

First, Islamists and al Qaeda were responsible for Benghazi but the Obama Administration could not admit their failure because they had just touted that Mr Obama had al Qaeda “on the run,” “decimated” and “on the path to defeat.”

[Another reason I love events immured in YouTube.  You can’t fudge the facts.]

Then came Benghazi and four Americans were sacrificed on the altar of political expediency and Demorat coverups.  Susan Rice, former UN Ambassador, said:

A bald-faced lie by the duplicitous to the addled and soft-brained amongst us.

Next: the lie by Mr Obama whilst speaking at the United Nations:

I’m sure that, at the time, al Qaeda was wondering: “just what the hell are you talking about?”  It determined: thanks; you’re playing right into our hands.  We salute you.

Hillary Rodham Clinton continued to enable the duplicitous Benghazi Meme:

Whilst Demorats did their best to minimize the importance of the Benghazi deaths, Conservatives continued to insist that those four deaths had importance and that we as a nation and government needed to understand and recognize our mistakes in order that those mistake not reoccur and that the four deaths were not meaningless or in vain.

My posts:

And some base questions: just who told Hillary Rodham Clinton to blame the video?  Where was she at the time of the attack?  Where was Barack Hussein Obama?  Why the so very long response time for our citizens?

Perhaps now — with this Select Committee — there might be a slight opportunity for the truth to unveil itself?  Because, after all, the more people try to stonewall, the more there must be to know.

Now that Boko Haram has revealed its true Islamist and Sharia Law bent, people in the United States are starting to become “upset.”

But let’s go back, shall we, to the nexus of Boko Haram and Hillary Rodham Clinton, in terms of her refusing — as Secretary of State — to quantify Boko Haram as an FTO (Foreign Terrorist Organization).

Hillary’s State Department Refused to Brand Boko Haram as Terrorists

Under Hillary Clinton, the State Department repeatedly declined to fully go after the terror group responsible for kidnapping hundreds of girls.
The State Department under Hillary Clinton fought hard against placing the al Qaeda-linked militant group Boko Haram on its official list of foreign terrorist organizations for two years. And now, lawmakers and former U.S. officials are saying that the decision may have hampered the American government’s ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls.In the past week, Clinton, who made protecting women and girls a key pillar of her tenure at the State Department, has been a vocal advocate for the 200 Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram, the loosely organized group of militants terrorizing northern Nigeria. Her May 4 tweet about the girls, using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, was cited across the media and widely credited for raising awareness of their plight.

But whose inaction spurred on the attackers?  Her own in 2012.

“The one thing she could have done, the one tool she had at her disposal, she didn’t use. And nobody can say she wasn’t urged to do it. It’s gross hypocrisy,” said a former senior U.S. official who was involved in the debate. “The FBI, the CIA, and the Justice Department really wanted Boko Haram designated, they wanted the authorities that would provide to go after them, and they voiced that repeatedly to elected officials.”

In May 2012, then-Justice Department official Lisa Monaco (now at the White House) wrote to the State Department to urge Clinton to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist organization. The following month, Gen. Carter Ham, the chief of U.S. Africa Command, said that Boko Haram “are likely sharing funds, training, and explosive materials” with al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. And yet, Hillary Clinton’s State Department still declined to place Boko Haram on its official terrorist roster.

Who actually placed Boko Haram on the FTO list?  Of all people, John Kerry, after a series of Christian church bombings in Nigeria.

Let me unequivocally state that the kidnapping occurred roughly one month ago, on April 14th.  One month.  Yet the dainty sensibilities of Leftists weren’t upset until last week.

When Leftists do something, they are being good.  When Conservatives do something they are being “partisan.”

Further (you’ll love this): here’s a long forgotten point from MoveOn.org: their poll to urge then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not to declare Boko Haram a terrorist group:

MoveOn.org Petition Boko HaramThis is an amazing bit of defeatist pussified crap from people who are predominantly cowards.  They advocate “dialogue.”  There is no “dialogue” with terrorists or Islamists or criminals or psychopaths.  They want what they want when they want it and couldn’t care less about “dialogue.”  They only care about two things: 1) their strength and 2) your weakness.

Cowardly Leftist EmosA “hashtag” #BringBackOurGirls won’t bring back anyone, much less the girls — including Christian girls — at all.  It merely serves to dupe and assuage the senseless Emos amongst us.

Michelle Obama -- Bring Back Our GirlsMichelle Obama holding up a sign won’t bring back anyone, much less the girls, at all.

A nice discussion between John Kerry and Boko Haram leaders around a nice ebon table and some soothing cups of tea won’t bring back anyone, much less the girls, at all.

How can the Leftists decry Boko Haram and yet refuse to let Ayaan Hirsi Ali speak at Brandeis University — a woman who is a clear critic of Boko Haram, al Qaeda and Islamists?  Muslims who in turn believe in female genital mutilation and honor killings?  By Muslims who think that women are nothing more than chattel?  How hypocritical can that be?  How insane can that be?  Boko Haram is only worth criticism when young girls are threatened?

On that note: apparently the killing of fifty-nine little boys by Boko Haram in February of this year doesn’t count at all.  I don’t see Michelle Obama holding up a sign saying #bringbackourboys.  Nor do I see celebrities all a-twitter on Twitter even mentioning that horrible incident.

Why?  I submit because it’s about little boys, not little girls.  Little girls kidnapped = Huge Deal.  Little boys killed and burned to the bone = no deal at all.

Thank you Leftists.

Thank you Hillary Clinton.
