The West Needs a Better System for Identifying Radical Islamists by Tawfik Hamid

The West Needs a Better System for Identifying Radical Islamists by Tawfik Hamid

The following piece was written by a Muslim who is a self-identifying ex-Islamic Jihadist.

(I conveyed some of the same sentiments as he does in his WSJ article in blog posts here years ago, and on my SoloLoner Twitter account, but the clowns 🤡 at progressive Christian Stephanie Drury’s “Stuff Christian Culture Likes” Facebook group ripped on me years ago for saying the same thing this Muslim guy does here):

Excerpts:

The West needs a better system for identifying radical Islamists and cutting out the religious underpinnings of jihad.

September 10, 2021

Twenty years ago, 19 of my fellow Arab Muslims carried out the worst foreign attack on American soil in history.

Slipping into the country legally and apparently without raising alarm bells among our intelligence and law-enforcement communities, these members of al Qaeda, a radical Islamist group bent on jihad, crashed two commercial airliners into New York’s World Trade Center towers and a third plane into the Pentagon.

They failed with a fourth aircraft because of the actions of courageous and selfless passengers. As a result, nearly 3,000 people were murdered that day, and many more have succumbed to related injuries in the ensuing years.

I mention all this not to recall the obvious, but to make the point that such immense harm to our nation could be effected by a small group of dedicated terrorists.

Yet now, in the name of protecting Afghan nationals who helped our military and intelligence services—and of providing the prospect of better lives to the hundreds of thousands who stream across our southern border this year—we have created conditions favorable to another, perhaps much deadlier terror attack on the U.S.

Sad but true: In the 20 years since 9/11, we have continuously worked to fight only the symptoms of what transpired that horrible day.

[The author goes on to list steps that the U.S. government did to combat Islamic terrorism in the aftermath of 9/11]

Yet here we are, on Sept. 11, 2021, still vulnerable to the same sort of act that transpired 20 years ago despite our enormous expenditure of treasure and precious blood. I guarantee you, among those who are entering our shores and crossing our borders are men hell-bent on dwarfing 9/11 and declaring another victorious jihad.

How do I know this? I was once one of them.

Blaming Women for Election Results You Don’t Like – Both the Left and Right Lambast Women For How They Vote

Blaming Women for Election Results You Don’t Like – Both the Left and Right Lambast Women For How They Vote

There’s this guy named Jesse Kelly on Twitter (his account is located here), I take it he’s a conservative.

I happen to be a conservative, too.

In the past couple of months, I’ve sometimes seen conservative journalists or personalities on Twitter re-tweeting this Kelly guy’s comments. I’ve never heard of him before.

Here is how Kelly describes himself currently on his Twitter page

Host of ‘I’m Right’ on The First. Host of the nationally syndicated Jesse Kelly Show. Anti-Communist. Community college credits.
— end —

Well, okay. I don’t support communism, either. 

Kelly tweet quoted a headline by Politico. The Politico tweet read:

Our Women Rule newsletter explores how women shape Washington and the world. Don’t miss out. Subscribe today.
— end —

Here is what Kelly said above that Politico headline that he quoted:

57% of women in America voted for a half-functional dementia patient surrounded by communists because the last guy could be a jackass on twitter and now the world is descending into madness and we’re an international embarrassment. Shaping the world indeed.
— end —

Below that Tweet, he tweeted this:

The most disheartening conversations I have are the private ones with GOP congressmen and senators where we talk about the solution to a problem only to have them conclude it can’t even be proposed because they’ll “lose too much of the women vote to get elected.”
— end —

I left this guy a tweet (under the first comment of his) where I said,

I wish people would stop blaming women for election results they don’t like. The left blames white women all the time every time a Republican wins.

I linked him to this previous post on my blog:

I am tired of people, both on the left and on the right, blaming women for how they vote, whether they vote Democrat, Republican, or third party.

Designer Baby Revolution: Can We Outlaw Sexual Reproduction?

Designer Baby Revolution: Can We Outlaw Sexual Reproduction?

(Link): Designer Baby Revolution: Can We Outlaw Sexual Reproduction?

By Cameron English — August 30, 2021

Could governments mandate that we quit reproducing sexually for the sake of public health? It sounds outlandish, but there are prominent thinkers making that case.

Their argument is superficially plausible but ultimately absurd, both for scientific and ethical reasons.


…. However this particular dispute ends, the opposing sides and the underlying point of contention, who controls your body, aren’t going anywhere soon.

The reason is that advances in health care are enabling physicians to identify the genetic underpinnings of serious diseases and take preventative measures before their patients suffer the debilitating effects of these disorders.

‘The Taliban Will Enjoy Killing Us’: Gay Man Trapped in Afghanistan Says Extremists ‘Are Hunting Us’

‘The Taliban Will Enjoy Killing Us’: Gay Man Trapped in Afghanistan Says Extremists ‘Are Hunting Us’

Bear in mind as you read this story below that many American liberals and leftists often…

– especially the ex-Christians, or the guys who use the “Exvie” (ex-evangelical) tags on Twitter, or some of the Facebook groups that rant about Christian spiritual abuse and in favor of leftist identity politics –

…behave as though American evangelical Christians or Republicans are the biggest threats to homosexuals.

Aside from homosexuals, the Taliban (Muslim extremists) don’t like Christians; I just heard the other day that Christians trying to flee Afghanistan say that if the Taliban catches a Christian, they will set a living Christian on fire.

I’d be a little less concerned if someone won’t use my “pronouns” or refuses to bake me a wedding cake over my sexual identity or behavior, and more concerned over being shot or burned alive by Muslim extremists for political or religions disagreements.

A gay man trapped in Kabul has said the Taliban ‘are hunting us’ as he gave a harrowing description of what a life under the extremists’ rule would look like for the LGBTQ+ community.

The man, whose identity has been concealed for his own safety, said the Taliban would take pleasure in hunting down and killing LGBTQ+ people in an exclusive interview with MailOnline.

Women Prisoners Allowed to be Raped by Self Identifying Transwomen To Protect the Feelings of Transwomen

And leftists, liberals friendly to the left, continue to disregard the safety of biological women all to favor the feelings of biological men who say they identify as women.

Don’t tell me you stand in opposition to sexism, are turned off by Trump’s “grab ’em” comment, when you or your views or “allyship” helped usher in situations like the following, which put natal women in danger.

By Brandon Showalter

Female inmates in the California prison system say they’re now “prey for men” as correctional facilities prepare for an uptick in rapes and pregnancies following a policy change that allows men who identify as female to be transferred to women’s-only prisons.

At medical clinics inside the Central California Women’s Facility, newly available resources suggest that women housed there should anticipate a heightened risk of being raped.

As all sex inside the prison system is deemed non-consensual by default, the influx of men in women’s-only facilities only increases that risk, according to the radical feminist group Women’s Liberation Front.

Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists Out of Afghanistan?

Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists out of Afghanistan?

So, for all the Never Trumpers (which would include former Southern Baptist Beth Moore) and the liberals and leftists who claim to be against sexism, to claim they were repulsed by Trump’s “grab ’em” line, I’d like for you to grapple with Democrat failure of women – this botched withdrawl was carried out under a Democratic Party administration (Joe Biden’s), with the first ever woman Vice President, Kamala Harris.

(Link): Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists out of Afghanistan?

Good question. The need to protect women and children from the depravity of the Taliban’s seventh-century ideology had been one of the driving forces for sustained American engagement in Afghanistan.

That includes Barack Obama as well as the two Republican presidents who bookended his administration.

Now, however, the NGOs and activists encouraged by those policies to work in Afghanistan find themselves stuck in the collapse, the Washington Post reports. It takes quite a few paragraphs to get to the reason why, however:

While the administration in recent weeks has acted to accelerate the processing of SIV applicants and began airlifting applicants and their families out of Afghanistan, it has not done so for others who might be targeted by the Taliban because of their affiliation with international organizations but who are not eligible for the SIV program.

Several people involved in the evacuation effort said they were shocked by the Biden administration’s lack of preparation for the possibility that female activists and other vulnerable Afghans would be at risk and require aid — especially given how central the issue of women’s rights has been to the U.S. project in Afghanistan.

It was an effort cited by successive American presidents as a justification for the U.S. presence. …

Amed Khan, a New York-based philanthropist and human rights advocate who has been working to evacuate at-risk Afghans, said that between the SIV applicants, women’s rights activists and other allies, thousands of people have “risked their lives implementing our agenda for the last 20 years.”

Gay Campground Gets Accused of Hateful Transphobia for Banning Female Genitals

Gay Campground Gets Accused of Hateful Transphobia for Banning Female Genitals

I’m sitting here as a conservative, a non-woke, never- been- woke, non- ally,  watching in some amusement as the left eats one other!

I remember when a lot of homosexual men, the “g” in LGB(T), used to harass Christian bakers, photographers, or florists, for not wanting to provide their services or artistry, in, or for, homosexual weddings. Many Christians were sued out of business, or almost, over that.

Now the shoe is on the other foot!
This is the third or so blog post I’ve done in the last couple of months of how the far left, usually the “T” in LGBT, harassing cis (biological) male homosexuals.

I hope any of you homosexual guys who used to harass straights or Christians over the legalization of gay marriage, whether IRL or on social media and on blogs,  are now feeling sheepish or remorseful over that, because you are now on the receiving end of the same behavior you used to dole out. How does it feel?

March 21, 2021

We’re living in interesting times.

An easy example: the evolving concept of gender and its inclusion in a gay/lesbian alliance.

Originally, “gender” related to grammar. Then we were told it’s the same as “sex.” Then we were told it’s a societal construct. Then we were told it’s within us when we’re born.

And also:

(Link, off site): Official Harvard Guide: Gender Can ‘Change From Day to Day’

Meanwhile, homosexuality — an absolute attraction to the same sex (as opposed to gender) — holds down the “L” and “G” in the same grouping amid which “T” defies the convention.

As society evolves, we’re working our way through:

Apropos, in Michigan recently, a clash of initials occurred.

Businessman Bryan Quinn had an idea: Open a gay camping area in the spring.

The co-owner of Camp Boomerang RV Park and Campground — in the city of Orleans, roughly 50 miles north of Lansing — posted to Facebook an explanation of the camp’s concept.

Biologically speaking, Bryan envisioned the vacation destination as exclusively male.

These days, what’s the best way to put that into words?

Last month, here’s what he composed:

Camp Boomerang is a private, membership-only RV park/campground that allows only “guys.” A “guy,” in terms of this discussion, is defined as a person with a penis, [who] presents himself as male and has a state-issued ID that says “male.”

Clear?

Bryan must’ve braced for a bit of backlash:

We understand this statement, unfortunately, may not make everyone happy, but feel it needs to be clarified.

“Being a ‘private membership only’ entity,” he wrote, “allows us the ability to build a like-minded atmosphere.”

….As reported by the Advocate, not everyone was on board.

While some critics declared they definitely weren’t “like-minded” toward the policy, one nay-sayer inquired as to whether there would be “penis checks” at the entrance.

The Religion of Wokeness (video)

The Religion of Wokeness (video)

(The video entitled “The Religion of Wokeness” is embedded and linked to towards the end of this post. I may embed and/or link to other videos from this series below)

I’ve noticed for well over a year now that Wokeness, CRT, Identity Politics, intersectionality, Whiteness Studies, Black Lives Matters, and all these other leftist movements and lingo are religious in tone.

Leftists sound and act like they are in a cult.

It’s perhaps most glaring with people who say they left conservative or fundamentalist Christianity and behave as though they have just merely swapped out those former religious beliefs for the secular religion of Wokeness.

Most of these liberals / progressives who’ve left conservative Christianity remain blind to the fact that they’ve merely made Leftism / Leftist causes into their new religion.

Regarding: ‘Imagine Thinking the Holy Spirit Will Protect You from Covid but Not from CRT’ – some thoughts

Regarding: ‘Imagine Thinking the Holy Spirit Will Protect You from Covid but Not from CRT’ – some thoughts

So, there’s this guy named Scott something- or- other (surname Coley?) who I muted or blocked on Twitter about a year ago, but sometime recently, Julie-Anne retweeted him (on her Twitter account). I don’t know if I can find his tweet again.

Every so often, this Scott guy posts something critical of Christian Gender Complementarianism I agree with, but I often find his bashing or mocking of conservatives or Trump-voting evangelicals on other issues to be hypocritical, condescending, or smug.

He may not come right out and name names, but it’s usually pretty obvious that his barbs are aimed squarely at “Trump evangelicals,” or any Christian church or group that is not progressive.

The tweet I saw recently via Julie Anne by this guy said something like this (link to Tweet):

‘Imagine Thinking the Holy Spirit Will Protect You from Covid but Not CRT’

Please note that sometimes leftists and liberals refer to CRT (Critical Race Theory) under other monikers, including “Culturally Responsive Education.” It’s all the same thing, just under different labels.

First of all, as I just posted the other day to this blog:

Secular Americans Less Likely Than Evangelicals to be Vaccinated: Poll

Secular Americans Less Likely Than Evangelicals to be Vaccinated: Poll

Well, well, well. This is sure to throw a wrench into the arguments or beliefs of liberals, leftists, certain classes of atheist, and Democrats, or anyone who hates Trump, Trump voters,  evangelicals, or anyone who is a YEC (“Young Earth Creationist,” or just “Creationist.”)

The left, liberals, and those who oppose a belief in a six day, literal creation of the world (something believed by some Christians) love to ridicule anyone who expresses vaccine hesitancy, or who may believe in Creationism – the vaccine hesitant or Creationists are said to be unscientific, barely literate, red necks.

I don’t care one way or another if others choose to get the vaccine or not. Nor do I care if people believe the earth is millions of years old or only six days old.

But if you’re one of those people who is quick to assume that any one who is Republican, evangelical, a Creationist, a global warming skeptic, or a vaccination hold-out is an idiot, anti science, or a hillbilly from the backwoods, note what this poll is showing.

If you’re measuring “getting vaccinated” to mean “someone who believes in science!,” you’re going to be disappointed by this.

Americans who are younger and identify as non-religious are less likely to get vaccinated than evangelical Christians, according to a recent report on polling data compiled by Ryan Burge, who says it shows the media “needs to be turning the spotlight a bit away from evangelicals and toward the … young and secular.”

Burge, assistant professor of political science at Eastern Illinois University, analyzed findings from a survey published on May 11 by Data for Progress.

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

If an adult born of one biological sex later in life wants to pretend to be of the other biological sex, I don’t entirely care (so long as it does not negatively impact me or other people), but I DO NOT support this idiocy, where facts of life, like biological sex, are denied!

People should not be hounded online, or banned or suspended from social media, or receive hate mail from people, or face being fired from their job, for knowing and saying that most humans are born one sex or the other, or for stating or acknowledging truisms, such as men don’t get periods or get pregnant, and women don’t have testicles or penises.

Woke-ism does not respect science – but then, I suppose the idiots on the left consider science “whiteness,” and hence “white supremacy” (eye roll), so they’re fine with ignoring it, I suppose.

The far left activist crack-pots (and many in the Democrat Party) are demanding everyone else in society speak in their woke terms and deny scientific realities. This is not okay.

Harvard lecturer Carole Hooven took heat from her own colleague after an appearance on Fox News this week in which she asserted that biological sex is real and defended the continued use of terms like ‘pregnant women’ and “male and female.”

“The ideology seems to be that biology really isn’t as important as how somebody feels about themselves, or feels their sex to be,” Hooven told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday. “The facts are that there are in fact two sexes — there are male and female — and those sexes are designated by the kind of gametes we produce.”

Joe Rogan Claims Gay and Transgender People are the ‘Most Vicious’ Champions of Cancel Culture and Says They are ‘Coming After People Because They Were Bullied’

I’m going to say he’s partially right here, only – it’s mostly Transgenders (and their “allies”) and extremist Atheists who are the nastiest on social media and trying to get free speech of their opponents silenced.

I’d say in the last few years, homosexual men and homosexual women have somewhat decreased as threats.

As to the their motivation, I can’t really say – maybe some of these miserable “cancel culture” people and progressives were bullied as children, but some of them may be drive by their politics.
