Obama Exemplifies Dhimmitude (Submission) During G20 World Tour

During Obama’s G20 World Tour (did you buy the t-shirt?) this week, we were witness to several disturbing actions and statements on the part of the President.  Two that come to mind are his bowing lowly before the King of Saudi Arabia (see the photo – ever see a US President do that?), and his speech before the Turkish parliament on Islam and United States.  Both are examples of dhimmitude.

What’s that, you ask?  Basically, it is a form of submission.  The word “dhimmitude” comes from “dhimmi”, an Arabic word meaning “protected”. Dhimmi was the name applied by the Arab-Muslim conquerors to indigenous non-Muslim populations who surrendered by a treaty (dhimma) to Muslim domination.  It is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for …

Coercing Our Youth To Be Minions Of The Government

Can Barack be for real?  Can he really be pushing for compulsory service?

John Goldberg at the LA Times, shares:

In his speech on national service Wednesday at the University of Colorado, Obama promised that as president he would “set a goal for all American middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of service a year, and for all college students to perform 100 hours of service a year.”

Goldberg draws a reasonable conclusion that while this is not “slavery”, it certainly promotes a slavery mindset.

In my opinion, it’s more hideous than that.

First of all, this promotes a mindset that the government knows what’s right, and what’s good for you to do, and you don’t need to question it.  People, for …

The Real Democrat party

I thought this was timely, and am sharing the complete text of what Bit posted at his site.   It amazes me how easily we forget these things.

Bit says: This was sent to me via mail this monring, and I’ve echoed out in total:

The Democrats:

  • Democrats fought to expand slavery while Republicans fought to end it.
  • Democrats passed those discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws.
  • Democrats supported and passed the Missouri Compromise to protect slavery.
  • Democrats supported and passed the Kansas Nebraska Act to expand slavery.
  • Democrats supported and backed the Dred Scott Decision.
  • Democrats opposed educating blacks and murdered our teachers.
  • Democrats fought against anti-lynching laws.
  • Democrat Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, is well known for having been a “Kleagle”

Leonard Pitts Rings The Bell

Day by day, it amazes me more and more that people can say the most unintelligent things and cause the air to be putrid with their rancor. And other days that I get a real breath of fresh air. Today I was treated to a real burst of oxygen in the form of Leonard Pitts’ column (dated March 2, at the Miami Herald).

Pitts’ column was in response to a letter from the editor of a high school newspaper who had addressed the issue of displays of the Confederate Battle Flag, which he (the High School Editor) considered to be “an extremely offensive symbol”. As apparently does Pitts. As, frankly, do I.

Mind you, the topic itself is certainly cogent and after several news items …
