Ill go so far as to say that someone who is not keeping an eye on a group of six imams chanting in an airport waiting area and then spreading out on a plane and behaving in a disruptive manner, well that person is swimming so far upstream against the basic human wiring of common sense and survival instincts that if one could just capture the contrary energy, the synaptic maelstrom going on inside their feverish, brainwashed, nonjudgmental little skull you could power the massive turbines of the very 757 youre flying on.
- Comedian, actor and social commentator Dennis Miller, on Fox News.
It just keeps getting worser and worser
I included the Dennis Miller quote simply because I think its brilliant. The ungrammatical statement I made that follows reflects the percentage of Americans who I believe wouldnt have been keeping an eye on a group of six imams acting suspiciously on an aircraft. Whether the men were making a dry run (as did the 9/11 hijackers), looking to cash in on a civil suit, seeking to stir up the ire of the politically-correct, or simply being troublesome for hates sake, the reaction of the passengers who did take notice and the subsequent actions of the crew and the airline were most assuredly called-for.
But no. We have now the idiots who would have ignored the imams supporting the contention that they were being persecuted, profiled, singled out. The passengers on that plane should have taken no more notice of them than a group of flight attendants. That there is serious debate (let alone probable litigation) taking place as to the propriety of US Airways actions in Minnesota is manifestly insane.
For the record: Im still not sure what an imam is exactly. The medias proclivity for ascribing innocuous and inaccurate terminology to our enemies has frustrated me for years. I surmise that theyre some kind of Islamic cleric, but the requisites for same are fuzzy at best. Is there study of some kind involved, or is it just the beard, headgear and a worship of chaos and destruction? The Iranian terrorists who held American citizens hostage during the Carter Administration were referred to in the media as students. Its altogether possible that guys whove attended Taliban training camps and have links to Al-Qaeda now qualify as holy men in the eyes of the press, progressive politicians and their deluded base.
A black man is shot to death by police in New York City and of course its murder before one solid fact gets out. In a perverse cosmic coincidence, within days of that shooting a Hispanic man is killed by police in a community near where I live. Due in no small measure to the breadth of coverage the New York story received, this instantly became a murder case as well, despite the fact that the deceased was brandishing a firearm.
These two men may have indeed been murdered in the legal sense; the point is that before the blood has congealed (let alone formal investigations being completed) in such instances there professional activists appear calling for riots, and a media feeding frenzy ensues that does far more to foment than inform. In the face of racially-heated news stories, these fools have lately developed the practice of giving airtime to the New Black Panther Party, whose slogan just happens to be Freedom or Death. Freedom from what? Ive no idea. These are individuals who honestly believe that the first thought of each and every white person upon awakening is how to stick it to blacks that day.
A visit to their website (which made me feel like I needed a shower, by the way) quickly revealed that nearly all their principals possess guess what Muslim names. Given broadcast media venues, their spokesmen typically bark barely coherent Sixties-era incongruencies about whites murdering black children and shout down flustered network correspondents.
When I seriously consider the motivations of the press and the far Left, it becomes sadly apparent that they would both view an outbreak of nationwide race riots as simply delicious. Again insane and destructive, but think of the money theyll make and the power theyd respectively gain!
A millionaire pop star flashes her privates and its a publicity stunt. In a sane society, shed be charged with indecent exposure, her fan base would evaporate in a twinkling and shed be pitied as a poor, unbalanced creature. After all, such acts used to be equated with unimaginable desperation or mental instability. In the context of our society at present and our current challenges, the fact that this titillates to the tune of top search engine rankings is the sickest part of all.
Now, I dont bring all this up because of the recent political shift in our government, but I wager that well see more overt evidence of societal decay as a result. Within hours after the midterm election, far Left elites became markedly more emboldened as did our enemies abroad in case no one has noticed.
I could go on and on with anecdotes across several areas of our society which illustrate the unthinking, delusion and sheer lunacy that is spreading across the country and the grey matter of Americans like some variety of voracious, flesh-eating bacteria. Moral relativists and other enemies at home and abroad have more and more success using our freedoms as the very weapons with which they are beating us to death, yet most of America remains too intimidated to speak out or act.
Fear, frustration and months of propaganda brought about one of the most potentially dangerous political developments of our time. They said Bush lied loud enough and long enough and people finally bought it, despite there being no evidence whatsoever to support the statement, and cyclopean heaps of evidence to refute it.
Fear, avarice, and an apathetic public (the part which has not been misled outright) keep the system in place. Its all well and good for social commentators even famous ones to tell it like it really is every now and then. As I said in my column Proretrogressives and the Last Wake-up Call, its going to take hardcore grass-roots initiatives to bring about the changes necessary to preserve our nation via political reformation and media negation: Boycotting corporations that support destructive lobbyists (even if they do produce a neat hybrid vehicle or a shampoo you swear by), calling out pretenders amongst the conservative ranks, refusing to settle for the nominations and elections of worthless, weak party hacks who happen to have the right parenthetical letter after their name, and going toe-to-toe with poverty pimps and class envy purveyors even if it means being called unpleasant names by mudheads in ones community.
The brainwashed and the apathetic arent going to wake up on their own, either. Do you want to see your spouse and children gang-raped by laughing terrorists and then have your throat cut? No? Then get on board, because thats what were up against.
What we really need is a president who is willing to tour America saying that, as during the days of the rail stop campaign and decorum be damned.
bttt for later reflection.
This is like one of those Jesse Jackson scams.
I think US Airways should present the Imams with a bill for the financial loss incurred by the airline. If the Imams refuse to pay, take them to court. Furthermore, I think the people on the plane should sue the Imams for mental anguish.
It is my belief if US Air gives them any money; it would more than likely find its way to some terrorist organization.
They could invite a range of leftists too smart to show up.. and THEN PARODY THEM... and debate the idiots that do show up..
Those are good ideas.
But at the very least we should be looking seriously at deporting ALL enemy aliens - arabs, muslims, whatever. They are a 5th column. A potentially lethal threat from within.
Thank God for Dennis Miller...he has a wealth of a lost commodity in America - common sense.

Common sense has become unfashionable and even 'mean-spirited.'
A bunch of Christian ministers should go into a mosque and make a ruckus praying. Let's see how the imams deal with that.
Great, great writing here.
Now THAT was good ... satisfactory !!!!
It is my belief if US Air gives them any money, I would recommend to everybody I know that they never fly on US Air.
99.9% of the population wouldn't understand what Dennis and Coulter have to say.
I'm going for "or what".
Sitting in the wrong seat and not moving would get most people kicked off any flight with no more details needed.
It won't happen if we do. Fifty years of secular multiculturalism has resulted in a population stripped of it's history and traditions.
These have been replaced with a guilty self loathing that believes America is what's wrong with the world and is not worth defending.
