Election 2014: GOP Has Midterm Engagement Advantage
**Posted by Phineas
That’s the title of a post at Big Peace from a person who works in Hollywood, but has to post through a friend because of the bigotry shown toward anyone who doesn’t toe the orthodox left-liberal line there. His awakening to the truth about Islam –that it is an aggressive, totalitarian faith driven by its core doctrines to force all others into submission– mirrors my own, though my journey began right after September 11th. Here’s how he begins:
I use the term “Islamoawareness” because people who are critical of Islamic doctrine are often smeared as “Islamophobes”. I reject this label because a “phobia” is an irrational fear of something, but to fear something that is, indeed, out to kill you is the height of rationality.
Read the whole thing. Like David Mamet’s story of his transformation from unthinking liberal to thoughtful conservative, it’s a tale of opening one’s eyes to facts –not bigotry, facts– and casting off comfortable blinders of political correctness in order to see reality, no matter how uncomfortable it makes us. It’s a path we all need to walk in the face of a continuing jihad, both cultural and violent.
And be sure to take note of the recommend reading list at the end; I’ve read most of them and heartily agree.
