I am writing with respect to the recent UN “Anti-Blasphemy Resolution.” They want to make that resolution binding on the part of all member nations, including the United States of America. Put simply:
“The U.N.’s top human rights body has approved a proposal by Muslim nations urging the passage of laws protecting religion from criticism. Members of the Human Rights Council voted 23 in favor of a resolution Thursday to combat “defamation of religion.” Eleven nations, mostly from the West, opposed the resolution and 13 countries abstained. The resolution was proposed by Pakistan.” – Source
Lou Doubbs recently ran a piece on CNN Live entitled, “Free Speech FIGHT.” The 10:48 piece detailed the UN’s proposal, as well as the response to the following poll question: “Do you believe the United Nations’ restriction of freedom of speech in the United States should be tolerated?” 98% of the respondents answered “No.” Only 2% of all Americans answered “Yes.” Interestingly enough, 2% of Americans are Muslim.
By a margin of fifty to one, the vast, overwhelming majority of Americans do NOT want the United Nations to have ANY say over our freedom of speech. I concur with that wholeheartedly, as free speech protects all freedoms, including those of Muslims.
Furthermore, regardless of whatever federal, state, or local law may say, our Constitution remains “the supreme Law of the Land.” It details clear and certain terms the precise process by which any treaty can be made and what authority it may have in our country. I have detailed that process in clear, straightforward terms with respect to the UN Arms Trade Treaty, here.
Put simply, if a treaty violates the Constitution, it is not a legal treaty. As per several Supreme Court rulings, it is null and void, having zero value. It is not to be followed, much less enforced, and is the responsibility of everyone to ensure that it is repealed.
The same process and restrictions would apply to the adoption of any UN resolution. It may not violate our Constitution in any form or fashion whatsoever, period.
With respect to religion in general, I am a Bible-believing Christian. I have no problems with the vast majority of other religions, including Judaism, Gnosticism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Sikhism, Confucianism, Shinto, Wiccan, and Voodoo. Unlike Islam, none of these systems of belief are out to dominate the world while murdering those who don’t believe.
Islam claims to be the last and final revelation from God, that no one needs any further evidence beyond the Qu’ran. If someone wants to claim that, fine. People can believe whatever they want to believe, provided it causes no harm to others. Unfortunately, Islam not only doesn’t care about the harm it does to others, it strongly encourages it in many verses in the Qu’ran and the Hadith.
Islam takes this to the utter extreme, forbidding everyone, regardless of their faith, to express any doubts about it, while maintaining that any such challenge is punishable by death. If they can’t successfully demand absolute adherence right now, they get it by clawing and screaming for at least some movement towards their totalitarianism. Inch by inch, they’re taking over the world. There have been 71 attacks by Islam against the United States on our own soil since 1972, and the frequency per year is increasing.
Islamic suppression of our freedom of speech is totalitarianism defined. It is a rape and butchery of our inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as well as those rights specifically mentioned in our First Amendment, and other rights not specifically mentioned but covered by our Ninth Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Along with 49 out of 50 other Americans, I hereby reserve my rights, including my right to speak out in protest against this most heinous of belief systems our planet has ever seen.
In the Spring of 2001, I began paying closer attention to the increased volume and nature of pro-Islamic chatter. What I read opened my eyes to the true nature of Islam. At the time, such horrors were not commonly known in the Western world. Following 9/11, however, the true face of Islam has been uncovered by a great many sources, even as Islam seeks to replace the veil of deceit through UN mandate.
Based on that chatter, the actions taken by Muslims over the last 25 years, and the very writings of the Qu’ran and the Hadith, I can confirm that Islam is not a religion.
Although it’s cloaked in the guise of a religion, it is a totalitarian movement towards absolute power and control over other people, fostered predominantly by the Imams and those in militaristic power, but unwittingly aided by those who earnestly believe a subset of Islamic belief designed to pacify, control, and recruit them to Islam’s most sinister purpose.
When Islam takes hold among the masses, it becomes a societally-contagious mental illness responsible for the murder of hundreds of millions of human beings — more so than any other single source of murder on the planet. Most people, especially the liberal mainstream media, forget that long before the Christian Crusades took the first step in 1094, the Muslim Crusades has waged 461 years of war between Muhammad’s conquering of Mecca in 630 A.D. to Almoravids actions between 1050 and 1091 A.D. A total of 43 distinct campaigns and thousands of individual battles during which they slaughtered millions of non-believers, pretty much everyone who refused to convert to Islam.
The saddest part about Islam is that they are doing precisely the same thing today.
When you read through the Qu’ran, you come to realize there is no middle ground. Anyone adhering to the Qu’ran is bound to follow through on Islam’s plan for total domination. The idea that the problems are only created by a tiny number of “radicals” is a myth, as is the idea of “moderate Muslims.” More than 38% of all Muslims polled in all countries world-wide strongly support the actions taken by so-called radicals, including the murder and beheadings of innocent women and children whose only “crime” is that they refused to convert to Islam.
That is not a “tiny minority.”
I see absolutely zero value in our country giving in even a nanometer to this abominable UN resolution. Instead, I see great, even massive harm in store for the future of our country, as well as all freedom-loving people around the globe. Many countries have already begun steeling themselves against the rising tide of Islam, and for good reason. They see it for the massive abomination of death, destruction, and totalitarianism that it really is, as clearly evidenced in the words of the Qu’ran and Hadith itself.
I strongly encourage you to resist any and all attempts by anyone towards a “middle road” solution. There simply is no middle ground with the totalitarianism and massive human rights abuses of Islam. Even a 10% solution would erode our precious freedoms for which so many have fought and for which far too many have died.
When it comes to Islam, my input is no way. Not now, not ever.
Islam is THAT heinous a disease, and I, a Constitutionally-sworn patriot, will defend the United States of America against such heinous assaults on our freedoms to the death, if necessary.
For many of us, our Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms is more than a right. It’s our duty. When we swore to “protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” we undertook an oath to perform a duty.
There are many ways to go about protecting our Constitutional rights within the law, but the most effective way to protect our rights while informing the minds of the ignorant, a large part of the “domestic enemy,” is to simply exercise them throughout the normal course of our day.
When I carry my firearm, I don’t go out of my way to be noticed. In fact, I wear conservative clothing and behave normally, the same as I always behave.
I take the same approach towards our other rights, including freedom of speech.
I exercise my rights because of what happens when we don’t exercise them. People forget what they look like. People forget that they even have rights. Societies become “too polite,” which is a nice way of saying “politically correct.” Norms shift from freedom, the objective Constitutional standard of the free exercise of one’s rights, to the subjective politically correct standard based on avoiding “making a fuss,” “rocking the boat,” or “offending someone.”
Offense is not a legitimate reason to forfeit one’s rights. Neither is alarm. The Supreme Court has already decided this on several fronts, including racial equality, freedom of speech, and the right to keep and bear arms. While we may attempt to minimize offense or alarm in the exercise of our rights, it is impossible to eradicate either, and attempting to do so undermines the rights which it is our duty to protect! Let’s face it – people are offended by all kinds of things: The color of my skin, the length of my hair, the fact I served in the military. Heck, some folks are problem alarmed by the length of my hair, or the fact that I drive a truck!
Are those reasons to forfeit my right to keep and bear arms? They are not.
What about alarm? “OMG! He’s got a gun!” Thankfully, that’s not a statement I’ve heard any time in the 22 years I’ve been carrying a firearm, either on or off duty, including the last 2-1/2 years during which I’ve predominantly open carried. In fact, I’ve been thanked more than a dozen times, and have had at least that many conversations during which I’ve been asked about the local laws governing our Second Amendment rights.
I’ll close with a final thought: Holding true to what’s right will always offend some people, and it will always alarm others.
