Wake Up and Smell Shariah

The attack on Dr. Ben Carson’s statement on shariah revealed so much ignorance on the part of his attackers, I became alarmed. Thus, I wrote a post for the obviously uninformed, revealing the cloaked crusade of civilization jihad. From our commenters, I received the same illiterate attacks as Carson is getting. So before we stirred up the skin heads, the PC police and those who like to cut off heads, I shut off the conversation. Too toxic. Of course the usual suspects began howling "Fascist! Censor!" etc.

In the comment section I was forced to compare our present situation to the clandestine attempt of the communists to undermine our Constitution. If there had been bloggers in those days, I would like to believe they would have exposed the communists earlier.

Obviously shariah is much more anathema to our Constitution. However because it is a political system camouflaged in a religion, it is going to be protected by our 1st Amendment and therefore much more insidious.

Well said! The anti-GOP, anti-conservative bias of the MSM was never more evident that the dishonest and hysterical reporting and editorializing on Dr. Carson's quite reasonable and measured comments.

"Excerpted from "Thomas Jefferson's Qur'an"
[He] sais “neither Pagan nor Mahamedan [Muslim] nor Jew ought to be excluded from the civil rights of the Commonwealth because of his religion.”
 — Thomas Jefferson, quoting John Locke, 1776

At a time when most Americans were uninformed, misinformed, or simply afraid of Islam, Thomas Jefferson imagined Muslims as future citizens of his new nation. His engagement with the faith began with the purchase of a Qur’an eleven years before he wrote the Declaration of Independence."
