Ben Carson has come under intense attack recently for saying nothing more than we shouldn’t consider electing a Muslim as president. During an interview on “Meet the Press”, he said, “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.” And since making his statement all Hell has broken loose. Because if there is one thing that’s certain, it’s that candor about Islam will guarantee you the hot seat at the center of a media firestorm. I would argue that we already have elected a Muslim president, how else can you explain the actions taken by Barack Hussein Obama. Actions taken against his own country!
Let’s face it, the Republican Party is the only one of our two political parties willing to discuss the 800-pound gorilla in the room, that being, of course, jihad and Muslim terrorism. Islamic supremacists and their leftist lapdogs in our state-controlled media are waging their own jihad, the purpose of which is to silence this debate, which makes it all the more critical that we push back hard and support candidates who dare to speak against this gravest threat to our national security. Anyone who is actually foolish enough to believe that we can trust anyone of the Muslim ‘faith’ in any position of authority, but especially as president, is foolish beyond belief.
And the fact that our state-controlled media is now in such an uproar and the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is now howling for his head, should tell you all you really need to know. And now we have CAIR going so far as to actually be calling for Carson’s withdrawal. This group is nothing more than the terror-tied advance team and is doing its best to lay down the law, sharia law, making it perfectly clear that jihad terrorism and criticism of Islam is strictly off-limits, in accordance with sharia. Interestingly enough, they actually cite religious freedom, something that is forbidden in Muslim countries under Islamic law.
But refusing to be intimidated, Dr. Carson is standing by his view that a Muslim should not be president of the United States. He also said that whoever takes the White House should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.” And again, I agree! In an interview with The Hill, Carson opened up about why he believes a Muslim would be unfit to serve as commander in chief. He said, “I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country. Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.” Hear, hear!
What Dr. Carson is talking about here is not the supposed ‘religious’ component of Islam. Because, and let’s be very clear here, Islam is not simply a religion. What it is, is a comprehensive system which deals with all aspects of human life and behavior; legal, religious, dietary, political, et al. It is political Islam that poses a threat to our national security. Why doesn’t CAIR issue action alerts against jihad? Why hasn’t CAIR instituted programs to stop jihad recruitment? And while CAIR has made rote statements concerning the Islamic State, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it? Ah, that would be nowhere.
Right now, there is not a single thing being done to stop jihad recruiting in US mosques, even as several hundred young Muslims from the US have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State. What has CAIR done to stop that? Nothing! The truth is, CAIR most definitely is part of the problem, not part of the solution. If the moderates really reject extremism, let them show it by instituting genuine programs to teach against this view of Islam, so as to stop American Muslims from joining the Islamic State. But is there really such a thing as a ‘moderate’ Muslim? Looking for a moderate Muslim is like trying to find a moderate Democrat. Because neither exist.
Dr. Carson is absolutely right. Electing a Muslim president would be dangerous if not completely insane. We have seen the Islamic pattern of previously moderate Muslims becoming devout and then aiding and abetting jihad. How could we be sure a Muslim president would not do the same? Barry’s pro-jihad policies and his sharia adherence tell us more about him than words or agitprop ever could. He rules like a Muslim leader. And the media wonders why so many people think Barry is a Muslim? Barry has banned the word “jihad” and any discussion of Islam from State, Defense, and Justice Department vernacular and counter-terrorism materials.
And look at Barry “Almighty”. Why is it that nearly a third of the American people actually believe that Barry is a Muslim? He claims he’s a Christian and yet his father and his stepfather were both Muslims and he was raised in a Muslim country. He went to an Islamic school and took Qur’an classes while growing up in Jakarta. Because of his upbringing, he is islamophiliac, and his foreign and domestic policies reflect this. Barry’s advancement of Islam has been disastrous for freedom and freedom-loving peoples across the world. He has sided with jihadists in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Gaza and their counterparts in America, i.e. terror-tied CAIR.
He is denying that jihad is the enemy, while his Justice Department acts as the de facto legal arm for Muslim Brotherhood groups in America. And the Obama administration has held hundreds of meetings with U.S. Hamas front groups. And remember how it was after being in office only two months that the Obama administration began backing away from the phrase “global war on terror,” a signature rhetorical legacy of its predecessor. A memo was quickly distributed that made it very clear that “this administration prefers to avoid using the term ‘Long War’ or ‘Global War on Terror’ [GWOT.] Please use ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.”
It’s not a question of “Islamophobia” or “racism,” or even ignorance, for that matter. You can’t know what’s in a man’s heart, but “by their fruits ye shall know him, and so we know him.” The Obama experience is the best proof of all that Ben Carson is right. The risk is simply too great. Barry has often cited, with apparent pride, the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. Now while I suppose there may be some ‘good’ Muslims out there, the overwhelming number of them are. And as far as I’m concerned there are simply No Muslims that are worthy of our trust.
