Another sign that Muslims are taking over this country?
Paul Ryan grew a beard.
Yep, conservatives are concerned that since he has become the Speaker of the House and arrived at a budget agreement with the Democrats that did not shut down the government or hold it hostage, that and the beard are signs that Paul Ryan has become “anti-American.”
Breitbart even claimed that by failing to stop the spending bill, Ryan “betrayed America.”
And we all know that if you don’t hate Muslims, you hate Murka.
Even though Leviticus 19:27 says, “Do not trim off the hair on your temples or trim your beards”, apparently growing a beard these days is a sign of supporting radical Islamists.
Watch out, hipsters. We’re watching you with your thick beards and various types of ornamentations like glitter, flowers, and miniature Christmas ornaments.
You aren’t fooling anyone.
The purpose of terrorism is to use directed attacks on members of a group to send a message of fear to all the members of that group.
It’s what Gay bashing is all about whether it is physical attack, or the spreading of misinformation by politicians and clergy that encourages others to action while they keep their own hands clean.
When the hateful words of a presidential candidate become the excuse for people to act out on their bigotry to any group, that is promoting terrorism.
When a child collects all her possessions so she can grab them if her family has to move out fast, and in the meantime checks the locks on the doors of her family’s home multiple times before she goes to bed at night because they are Muslims in America, that is the product of terrorism.
When the former Grand Wizard of the KKK, David Duke, says of presidential candidate Donald Trump,
“As far as what I see, according to the candidates that are out there now, Republicans and Democrats, I think he’s head and shoulders right now above the rest. I don’t agree with everything he says, he speaks a little more, actually he speaks a little more, a lot more radically than I talk. And I think that’s a positive and negative”,
it becomes clear that, if he isn’t playing a role to get attention and stroke his own ego, Trump is a dangerous man who is promoting terrorism and is tacitly encouraging people to act on their bigotry, something they may have avoided until he began accelerating hate speech in his campaign appearances.
Sophia, a Muslim girl from Texas, is so afraid the military is going to come and take her and her family away, members of the armed services have been tweeting that their job is to protect every American, Sophia included, and they will do the job they have sworn to do.
I am sure that Sophia is not the only child who is afraid, as many see the armed protests outside their mosques and have heard the reports of the Christmas acts of arson at various mosques throughout the country, while news channels continue to cover Trump’s speeches where he rails against Muslims as people who are bent on destroying the United States and against whom severe steps must be taken if a person wants to protect this country, as if all Muslims are extremists and a threat.
He may not be blowing people up, lighting fires, or physically attacking people, but he is very effective at inciting others to act on their prejudices because he has led them to believe it is the patriotic thing to do.
Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma is chair of the Environment and Public Works Committee.
Last winter he took to the Senate floor intending to dispute climate change, but instead revealed how uninformed he is and continues to choose to be.
He proudly stated as he brandished a snowball,
“In case we had forgotten, because we keep hearing that 2014 has been the warmest year on record, I ask the chair, do you know what this is? It’s a snowball, just from outside here. It’s very, very cold out.”
Mr. Inhofe then tossed his snowball at the Chair.
The senator showed that he does not understand that global warming is a long-term and worldwide trend. Being cold at one place on the Earth at one point in time does not disprove global warming and man’s involvement in helping it along.
Global warming is a long term condition while weather changes from day to day.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, “If the land surface records were systematically flawed and the globe had not really warmed, then it would be almost impossible to explain the concurrent changes in this wide range of indicators produced by many independent groups.
The warming of the climate system is unequivocal.”
The 2000s had set a decadal temperature record, but Inhofe holds that
“The hoax is that there are some people who are so arrogant to think that they are so powerful, they can change climate. Man can’t change climate.”
Christmas was very warm in many places. Very unseasonable.
I was at my brother’s house for the day, and didn’t notice he had the living room windows open, and I was wearing a t-shirt.
He lives in New England, just south of Boston.
Will the good senator take to the senate floor and make a statement about this recent Christmas?
Or will he just accept that the unseasonably warm temperature was God’s gift to us all on His son’s birthday?
