"An Egyptian court convicted in absentia Wednesday seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based American pastor..."

"... sentencing them to death on charges linked to an anti-Islam film that had sparked riots in parts of the Muslim world."

It's late autumn in the Arab spring.

Arab Spring? or Muslim Spring?

Well Cedarford and Inga and Obama and Hillary will be very happy.

Congratulations.

Not much of a fan of Obama myself, but I wouldn't be sorry to see the ban hammer come down on Carnifex and whoresoftheinternet.

Has the Spring ever sprung, aside from Obama's propagandist broadsheets?

If you find being one fun, then you are one and deserved to be called one.

You are a racist.

Hillary and her top staffers have mulled over Egypt's request to extradite these 8 defendants right now. They have decided to pass along the request, without any recommendation, to the White House.

The next time Obama needs to appease Morsi when Morsi needs to appease the radical Islamists, these 8 will be arrested and extradited to Egypt. The Prophet must not be blasphemed.

AprilApple said...

Obama and Hillary don't give a shit.

traditionalguy said...

So what's new? The Muslim despising and murdering all infidels is always the same. That IS their religion.

What's new is the carrot and stick restraints we once used to civilize them. As Mubarack who was our man of restraint in Egypt having served Sadat had to leave the stage the full force of proud despising infidels and ugly murders of them by Muslims comes back like a tsunami with no sea wall to restrain it.

All Hail to Obama and his coven for ramping up the chaos.

Egypt used to be a nice place, if I remember correctly. You know, with tourists.

"We can speak out here in America,” Jones said. “That freedom means that we criticize government leadership, religion even at times. Islam is not a religion that tolerates any type of criticism."

Good for him. Burning a Koran is no different from burning an American flag. This is a basic, fundamental right. And the liberals who deny free speech are un-American.

And people who want to respect the Koran ought to read up a little.

The connection of the other five sentenced by the court was not immediately clear. They include two who work with Sadek at a radical Coptic group in the U.S. that has called for an independent Coptic state, a priest who hosts TV programs from the U.S., and a lawyer living in Canada who has previously sued the Egyptian state over riots in 2000 that left 21 Christians dead.

The other person is a woman who converted to Christianity and is a staunch critic of Islam.


I wonder why they haven't issued a death sentence against Obama, who also converted to Christianity?

Palladian said...

Really, Carnifex?

Baron Zemo said...

I don't think that anyone has a lower opinion of the Jug Eared Jesus than I do but even I couldn't conceive of him extraditing these people.

That seems unlikely even for him.

As per Inga, I guess these guys had it coming.

Partridge said...

Ann, I have avoided getting on here but once again I cannot help myself. As someone who knows courts in general, and Egyptian courts in particular, I have to say the real issue is not whether the decision happened but whether it is upheld on appeal. District courts in America (and especially small local courts) also rule absurdly sometimes.

Without more information about which court this was, the charges, or the judge involved, this means nothing.

whoresoftheinternet said...

You are a racist.

Baron Zemo said...

Although I never thought I would see Americans arrested in the middle of the night on trumped up charges because of a video. I mean mass murderers and child molesters don't get incarcerated that fast.

So I guess anything is possible with this guy. You never know.

Good thing we arrested that guy, huh.

Wonder if we have an extradition treaty.

When someone on the left behaves in a racist manner, it makes them and their beliefs look bad.

When someone on the right does it, it makes my beliefs look bad. That pisses me off.

Such shaming techniques aren't working anymore...

Such shaming techniques should not work on criticism of President Obama's policies or actions. Shaming techniques should work on things that are actually shameful, such as Carnifex's comment.

Such shaming techniques should not work on criticism of President Obama's policies or actions. Shaming techniques should work on things that are actually shameful, such as Carnifex's comment.
---No, they shouldn't at all. Such shaming techniques should be ignored, because it's just a way for leftards and righty-suck-ups like you to force people like me to second-class status whilst never calling the other side on it.

Get a clue, quisling.

Chip S. said...

In '08 we were promised a postracial America; it was an appealing prospect. What we got instead was full-bore racialism culminating in the divisive--hell, I'll say corrosive--Obama campaign of '12.

Carnifex's ugly, shocking comment is an excrescence of the new, tribal America--which sucks already and is going to get worse.

I'm grateful to Romney for running a clean campaign based on the issues. Too bad that shit doesn't matter anymore.

Yup. I blame Obama, naturally.

gerry said...

District courts in America (and especially small local courts) also rule absurdly sometimes.

My nephrologist is an American whose parents were Egyptian. His criticism of MSM coverge of events in Egypt were very entertaining (I haven't seen him in 7 months): his relatives went shopping, went to school, ate fast food, sat through movies - even as Tahir was erupting. In other words, life went on.

Your observation goes along with that.

It also agrees with the Professor's observation that portraying all Muslims as crazy hotheads is bigotry.

Aridog said...

What Chip S said... period.

Carniflex doesn't usually go tribal, but given the past 6 months of politicking, anything is possible. I know plenty of people who will say far worse things....that would not have dreamed of it a year ago.

Frankly, I get very tired of being expected to feel guilty simply because I am white and old. I've lived in various places around the world, with every basic racial/ethnic type and enjoyed it...even learn some or a lot of new languages as I went along.

Now that life style is no longer permitted. I'm informed I have to be on a "side" and I am assigned the old white guy pigeon hole...for all those who believe that, let me humbly say: go fuck yourself with a chainsaw.

I've lived better, without regard to money, than half the people I meet today who will never feel at ease with anyone who is really much different from them.

That is sad.

Chip S. said...

Predictable dumbassery from you, garage.

As always, I have to spell out my comment so that you can't misconstrue it.

Racists are solely responsible for their racism. The question is, how is it that they now feel so unconstrained by standards of decency as to express those views in a forum like this?

If you think the campaign designed by Axelplouffe and approved by Obama played no role in that, well let's just say I disagree w/ you and leave it at that.

The man made a crucially important promise in '08, and he failed to deliver on it in the least. He chose to distract attention from his pathetic record by playing to people's subgroup identities and claiming that white male Romney was out to get them.

Go ahead and be proud of that if you wish.

gerry said...

Good heavens, read the first amendment and then the fourteenth amendment.

Synova said...

Shaming is like crying wolf.

The failure of shaming is the fault of those who refuse to be shamed, any more than it's the fault of those who refuse to believe a cry of "wolf" because they heard it so often and it was never true.

Put the fault where it belongs. People used to care, profoundly, about being accused of racism and would do just about anything to avoid appearing so.

Now you're a racist if you disagree with Democrat politics. Or if you ever went to a Tea Party. When did that ever happen before? Anyone who cares, anymore, about being called a racist is an idiot. It can't be avoided.

And shame doesn't work any more and it's not the fault of the accused.

AJ Lynch said...

Carnifex - take a hike you idiot.

Synova said...

whoresoftheinternet said...

@Synova:

Well said. Truly, however, most of the left and anti-left commenters here are stil drinking the "Roots"-"Crash"-After-School Special-Law&Order Kool Aid: no one may ever insult or criticize black people without being profoundly evil, and their concerns must be dismissed and laughed at; however, any black person who does anything wrong must be understood and reasoned with, as he is the mere victim of whitey.

Fuck that noise.

Synova said...

I'm still not using the "word" though.

Rabel said...

Partridge,
From the Egyptian State Information Service (the official governmental information outlet, its chairman reports to President Morsi):

"Cairo Criminal Court (CCC) sentenced to death seven Egyptian Copts and a US pastor tried in absentia over charges of producing a movie ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad of Islam.

The ruling will be final on January 29 after receiving a report from Mufti Ali Gomaa.

Moris Sadeq, Morqos Aziz, Fekri Abdel-Mesih, Nabil Adib, Eilli Bassili, Phibi Abdel-Mesih, Nader Farid Niqola, all Egyptians living in the US, are also accused of undermining national unity."

One step removed from a final ruling by the Grand Mufti, it seems to mean something.

edutcher said...

Carn, you're wrong, but I do hear ya.

One thing to keep in mind here, although Egypt is a fairly secular country (Cairo was often called one of the three most immoral cities in the world), it's also the country that cheered when Rommel's tanks were bearing down on Alexandria.

I don't know what is meant by "an Egyptian court," but I'm guessing it means a panel of judges. But even if it involved a jury, how else would they be expected to decide this case?

Wait, your daughter's safety was never threatened. Obama lied about what caused the riots. But he would have left her to die even if they had.

I don't wish Terry Jones dead...but I would enjoy seeing him get his ass kicked about once a month until he shuts his phony administration suckling mouth and stays home rather than shitting all over other people's homes. Damn Gates, Petraeus and Dempsey for ever telephoning him ...giving him credence where none is deserved.

He's a punk...last time I saw him up here, he was running back inside city hall to get away from three black Baptist ladies who didn't like his shtick. The empty pistol holster he wears doesn't help much, eh?

He's nothing but a government stooge to provide righteous cause where none exists.

"I'm not a Moby, but I play one on TV."

These studs are the real thing. Like watching Nick Cave doing Stagger Lee; horrifying, but somewhat liberating, like cutting off one's dick is liberating to a masochist after a certain point in the proceedings. But mostly horrifying. Makes me scratch my head.

In the end, Carnifex and whores come across like a couple of dildo addled punks, circa 1976 London, standing in front of Sid Vicious, waiting glassy eyed for the predictable, but inevitable spitting; reveling in being a part of the world of the poseur. Preening in their mohawks and artfully torn Harrod's purchased clothing. So very shocking. Right.

Well played, guys. Well played.

Like I said, I wouldn't be sorry to see the ban hammer descend. Mostly out of insipid amateur hour antics on the part of the recipients.

Spain is big on this. Makes them look like children. The court in Egypt just totally beclowned itself. It's like a huge party to let everyone know you couldn't get a date to save your life... or in this case, are a helpless pussy who has to have a tantrum to get anyone to look.

I'd be mortified if the US ever did this.

I find that kind of fascinating, actually. Professor Jacobson does a similar thing on his blog. I have no problem with others picking at my brain...now and then they'll tell me something I didn't know or help me correct something I was wrong about.

What makes their actions evil is not the impotency of Egypt ("Quite the long-arm statute they have there") but an American government that does not believe in the free speech rights of our own citizens. Obama--who supposedly can give a speech--never speaks out when such a speech is needed. He doesn't speak out when Iran is filled with people in the streets, thirsting for democracy and free speech. He doesn't speak out when Egypt is filled with people in the streets, thirsting for democracy and free speech. He doesn't denounce these attacks on our liberties, nor does he even attempt to explain to the rest of the world why free speech is a blessing from God.

I think what he's sying though is that If he's going to be called a racist ANYWAY he might as well get the benefit of playing the racist. Namely that he gets to insult Obama racially.

Bingo. Thread winner.

No whitey is supposed to use the N word, for any reason, ever....that's 'gospel."

Never mind the vulgar racist terms periodically used by N-folk...y'all white honky mother fuckers should know that.

Maybe you have to live in and around Detroit? The majority of black people and families I know are nothing like that...but high paid entertainers and numerous "pastors" of the holy mail order seminary of what it is today get well by emphasizing it.

Once in a while we can talk about it....if for no other reason than to clear the air and understand what might actually drive prejudice. It is not 1950 anymore....it is far WORSE in some quarters. We can talk about it in order to not have to fight over it.

Or, we can just fling ad hominem insults. Whatever, I guess.

n.n said...

The outcome of the so-called "Arab Spring" has been progressive murder, torture, and enslavement of Christians and pagans, especially native black Africans. Well, this is not quite true. The "Spring" merely accelerated a historical progression.

Saint Croix:

As I recall, in Libya, Egypt, and Iran, Obama fomented uprisings only to betray the people asking for change. Not unlike Bush Sr. and Iraq; not unlike Bush Jr. and Afghanistan; but, perhaps, with the benefit of hindsight to firm his convictions. However, unlike the latter two, Obama seems to enjoy a special dissociation from the consequences of his actions.

Then, of course, there are his actions in America, including arming drug cartels, prosecuting citizens for their speech, and a general commission of redistributive change. Here too he enjoys a special dissociation from the consequences of his actions.

He is effectively "walking on water". Perhaps he is a god or at least a mortal god... in the eyes of his faithful.

Rabel said...

The original prosecutor in the death sentence case was Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud.

Mahmoud was recently removed from his position by Morsi in his attempt to reconstitute the Egyptian judiciary with men more sympathetic to the islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood.

I'm looking for the good guy here and can't find him. It's like watching a slap fight between whores and garage. Or Carnifex and Inga. Or Shiloh and anybody.

Aridog:

The selective condemnation of prejudice is a problem. Especially when it is condoned in order to advance political, economic, or social standing. Unfortunately, as Conservatives, we must concede that violation of civil rights can only legitimately be attributed to the individual. Even in the case of black Americans, there are approximately 3% who have embraced enlightenment. We should nurture that minority and not strike out indiscriminately.

Aridog said...

Garage...

Come on...No he's not called that on threads here as far as I know...but we all are inferred that way in the media and by the administration hose mouths regarding anything slightly awkward for them, like Susan Rice's embarassment or those celebrity mouth breathers who called anyone not voting for Obamamessiah a racist.

I suggested earlier today that anyone who insists I am an old white racist guy can go screw themselves with a chain saw. I meant it.

Baron Zemo said...

It is amazing to me that people always come up with these legalistic excuses about how this or that is not covered by the first amendment.

They always have an excuse to censor speech. Of course it is always the speech and the words that they don't agree with. It the most hateful and extreme speech that must be protected.

The speech that so many dislike and foam at the mouth got very strong push back here. As it should. But banning it just forces it underground. Where it can fester and rot. You need to let people express it so you can see where they are coming from.

So when people like Cedarford and Inga and Garage support the efforts of Hamas and the PLO and the actions of the militant barbarians to change our American way of life we know where they are coming from. When they mock our "scared parchment" and demand incarceration for any who "slander the Prophet of Islam" we get a sense of who they are in their heart of hearts.

We need to hear hateful speech to understand who you are. "Whore of the Internet" and "Cedarford" both have a right to espouse their hateful views. It is still America after all.

For a little while.

Saint Croix said...

Morsi stated today that he learned about how people should be treated and governance from, get this, seriously, watching "The Planet Of The Apes" movie.

Wow.

Maybe he's a racist? That would help a lot. Obama would be outraged.

Morsi: "No free speech, no democracy."

Obama: "That's fine."

Morsi: "War on the Jews."

Obama: "No problem."

Partridge,

As someone who knows courts in general, and Egyptian courts in particular, I have to say the real issue is not whether the decision happened but whether it is upheld on appeal. District courts in America (and especially small local courts) also rule absurdly sometimes.

Small local courts in America do not, in my experience, hand out death sentences in absentia by the fistful.

There are always those who would sacrifice the unpopular person who committed a crime or spouts hateful speech to appease the mob.
A few weeks ago we discussed the brilliant John Ford film "Young Mr. Lincoln." In one of the pivotal scenes, a young lawyer named Abe Lincoln risks his life to interpose his body between a blood thirsty mob and two young men accused of a crime. He knew that the actions of the mob were out of control. Driven by hate and prejudice. He stood for what was right. Not mob justice by barbarians.

He didn't hand over people to the mob to be torn apart.

Do you think that Obama would do that?

Or would he take them in the middle of the night to be handed over to the Mob?

Saint Croix said...
I'd be mortified if the US ever did this.

We do drone strikes instead.

What makes their actions evil is not the impotency of Egypt ("Quite the long-arm statute they have there") but an American government that does not believe in the free speech rights of our own citizens. Obama--who supposedly can give a speech--never speaks out when such a speech is needed. He doesn't speak out when Iran is filled with people in the streets, thirsting for democracy and free speech. He doesn't speak out when Egypt is filled with people in the streets, thirsting for democracy and free speech. He doesn't denounce these attacks on our liberties, nor does he even attempt to explain to the rest of the world why free speech is a blessing from God.

I don't believe anyone but an idiot would actually hold this position.

The problem is the whip hand in the Muslim world today is owned by those who embrace the lunacy. A sad fact, and it's going to get worse, much worse, before it gets better.

Another problem is being other than a crazy hothead Muslim isn't safe. Under Mubarak the crazy hotheads were jailed and/or exiled, or otherwise suppressed... not good for democracy, but in the long run a democracy of crazy hotheads is not preferable to autocracy.

Here's the thing. We understand how in Barack Obama's America blacks and gays and women are too weak to stand on their own two feet. Words can destroy them. They can't shrug them off or fight back with their own rough language. They must be protected at all costs. Anything that offends their delicate sensibilities must be stricken from the record. Erased. They are delicate flowers in Americas garden.

Now we are adding a new protected and cosseted class. Muslims. They must not be offended. The grit and dirt of the arena must not soil their keffiyeh. If you do you are subject to arrest. On any charge they can get.

Synonyms:
noun. basis - foundation - bottom - pedestal - ground

verb. found - ground - establish

It means the cowardly pimp mustached little shit who spends most of his time stirring up trouble outside of Florida. He draws huge crowds....of 30 or 40 passers-by maximum...so he demands local police protection wherever he goes and expects the locals to pay for it. One time he refused to pay a mere $1.00 fee for a demonstration he planned. Went to court over it, too, and LOST. My better half was on that jury but refused to listen to me until the trial charade was over.

Terry Jones is a "street Moby", pure and simple...and given his several telephone calls from a Sec of Def, and two Four Star Generals in this administration, I'd say he is an agitating government plant at best. He causes a ruckus and the politicos calm the waters with maximum exposure...all bullshit.

The funniest part of The Producers was the dancing swastika. So rude, so funny.

For those who don't know, Busby Berkeley did some amazing musicals back in the day.

The Nazi filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl totally ripped him off. So Brooks does this amazing thing, combining the swastika of Riefenstahl with the light, funny musicals of Busby. It's frickin' brilliant. Mel Brooks is underrated as a director (as all comedians are underrated). In fact his entire career is built around the idea of homage to art and artists. The more you know film, the more you respect Mel Brooks.

And the Usurper Obama is standing with the Muslims when the ill will blows. Afterall he is a Muslim since he has repeated the Shahada, which he claims is the most beautiful sound he has ever heard. If he were not a Muslim then he would be an apostate, marked for death. He is practicing Taquiya right from the Oval office.

Mick said...

An Election Contest was filed yesterday in Fla. Leon County Circuit Court: WFla. statute 102.168(1)(3)(b)gives standing to ANY voter or taxpayer to challenge the "nomination or election of ANY PERSON to office" based on the candidate's eligibility for the office sought. US Code 3 S.5 requires that election contests be adjudicated by the highest judicial tribunal (Fl. Supreme Court)by 6 days prior to Elector Voting Day in order to attain Section 2 status of the Florida Electors. (Meaning that eligibility for office is a JUDICIAL determination-- not a political one-- SPECIFICALLY by US statute). The Florida Supreme Court has also held that eligibility for office is a JUDICIAL DETERMINATION (Shevin v. Stone (1972)). It looks like the Fla. courts will have to make a determination of the meaning of natural born Citizen without first deciding that defendant has no standing (WITH PRECEDENCE). Plaintiff has PERFECT STANDING given by Florida statutes. Will they actually go all in on the lie of Obama's eligibility, and actually lie with precedence?

Mick said...

STATEMENT OF FACTS
7. As a Florida elector, claimant has taken an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” (Art. 6 s. 3 Florida Constitution).
8. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the United States (Art. 6, c.2). Article 2 Section 1 Clause 4 of the U.S. Constitution is a self executing constitutional provision, that uses the words “no person but a natural born Citizen shall be eligible” (sic), leaving no discretion in the eligibility requirement. As a self executing constitutional provision, no law or statute is necessary to enforce it.
9. Plaintiff asserts that Barack Hussein Obama is not a natural born Citizen of the United States because he was born a British subject of a British subject father, Barack Obama Sr., whom was married to the mother of Barack H. Obama at the time Barack H. Obama was born.
10. Barack Obama Sr., a citizen of the British colony of Kenya, and his children, were subject to the operation of the British Nationality Act of 1948. By the operation of Part 1 Section 1 of that Act, Barack Hussein Obama became a British subject, upon birth to a British subject father. It is not known whether he has lost that birth allegiance to the British crown.
11. The natural born Citizen clause pertaining to Presidential eligibility is a national security requirement designed to prevent foreign influence in the highest levels of government
12. The purpose of the natural born Citizen clause, prevention of foreign influence, is affirmed by Federalist 68, March, 1788, by Alexander Hamilton. Barack Obama Sr. is “an improper ascendant” (an improper ancestor), and Barack Hussein Obama is not “a creature of their own” (a natural born Citizen).
13. Therefore Barack Hussein Obama is a direct threat to the safety and security of the United States, and its Constitution, which plaintiff must protect and defend by oath.
14. The inclusion of the natural born Citizen clause in the U.S. Constitution implicitly adopts the concepts of natural law and law of nations (Morissette v. United States, 342 U.S. 246, 263 (1952). See also Miles v. Apex Marine Corp., 498 U.S. 19, 32 (1990), that adoption of a term of art adopts the entire body of law from which it is contained). Law of nations is explicitly adopted in Art. 1 cl. 10 s. 8.
15. The British common law doctrine of “perpetual allegiance” ended on July 4, 1776, when the
16. United States adopted law of nations and the “right of Election.” At that point in time U.S. residents became citizens of the United States, rather than British subjects (see Inglis v. Trustees of Sailors Snug Harbor, 28 U.S. 99, 122-126, (1830)). Any construction of natural born Citizen to mean the same as “natural born subject” is inconsistent with the US Constitution and Florida Statute 2.01.
17. Law of Nations defines the term of art “natural born Citizen” as one born in the country parents who are that country’s citizens (see Emmerich de Vattel, The Law of Nations, Section 212 (London 1797) (1st ed. Neuchatel 1758).
18. The U.S Supreme Court’s definition of the term of art natural born Citizen mirrors Vattel’s “The Law of Nations” in The Venus, 12 US 253, 289 (1814), Wong Kim Ark, 169 US 649, 679, 680 (1898), and with precedence in Minor v. Happersett, 88 US 162, 167, 168. Thus the definition stated therein is the law of the United States.

Every speech that gets you in trouble is, by definition, stupid speech.

Burning the Koran isn't as funny as Obama in Pee Pee, but one false god is just the same as another, really. People make a big deal about Koran burnings because Islam is currently filled with homicidal nutjobs who kill innocent people all the time. But that's a problem with Islam, not with the speaker. And criticizing the speaker for inviting the violence is like criticizing the rape victim for wearing a tight skirt. No, he didn't invite the violence, and no, it's not his fault. And Islam, not coincidentally, also flips out when they see a woman in a tight dress. So go ahead and call her a cunt, since we're using anatomical insults to attack innocent people.

Aridog said...

Saint Croix ... just in case you might be referring to my comments on Terry Jones as someone inviting violence ...let me clarify.

Terry Jones can burn whatever he likes at home in Florida. He is only offensive when he travels to distant places to capitalize on his notoriety (not to mention his connection to Gates/Petraeus/Dempsey...all reported widely and a classic WTF?) and specifically attempting to incite riot in other peoples' home town.

I've seen the man twice here, once very close by accident in passing ...when he got chased in to police protection by three African American Christian ladies. He wants police protection at entourage levels, but refuses to even apply for let alone pay for the permits required for such events...even when they are only $1.00.

He is a coward, has no theology degree, or any other degree, and is not ordained a minister by any accredited church. Basically he is an ignorant Jim Crow redneck without credentials of anything except fraud and posing...who wanders around in a weird leather jacket with an empty pistol holster on his hip. Yeah, we're smart enough, even in a shall-issue carry state with reciprocity, to disarm his fake ass.

He comes here and criticizes Obama prior the 2012 election, and thus encourages damn near a whole demographic to vote for Obama... which, in my opinion, was precisely the objective. He had to be rescued by police in one faux anti-Obama effort, His connections in Washington DC of today is no accident...he is a false flag punk if there ever was one.

Have I mentioned I'd be delighted to see him get his ass whooped, preferably with a Lester Maddox "persuader" in fitting deference to his beliefs.

EMD said...

That's the one big upside of a draft -- you are thrown into a world that is racially and ethnically "blind" and have to depend on men who don't look like you or come from where you come from.

Although I don't dislike the mandatory service idea and agree somewhat...the problem with that idea today, a general draft for military service, is that today's military generally requires reasonably educated & capable recruits. Nearly 75% of potential recruits are unqualified for a combination of reasons; failed education, mental issues, criminal records, and physical deficiencies.

Even back in the late 60's the brightest draftee recruits were usually sent to Infantry...and if lucky, sometimes to Armor or Engineer Branches. You could literally pass the AFGT test with a minimu score of 30 and not even speak a word of English in my day...and they lowered the minimum score to 15 anyway....for a while. From 1968 onward in the Vietnam Era, the majority of folks who could count to 12 without removing a boot did their "AIT" at Fort Polk....aka "Tigerland."

Hell, even as an enlisted (RA6805XXXX)dude I had two MOS categories, one a box kicker and the other a light weapons infantry...e.g., 76P40 and 11B40. And just to enlist I had to wait 60 days for a "moral waiver" due to a police record that included resistance to authority.

You have no choice but to recognize one another as equals.

Unfortunately, that generally applies only to soldiers in combat maneuvering conditions...e.g., under fire or soon to be so. I suspect base camp/rear area is still a bed of strife in many places.

I'd love to be told differently and corrected on that point, however....or any of these points.

Hey, it happens. Mr. Jones just happens to appeal to my inner lynch mob mentality. Now, having served my career in both military and federal service, there is no doubt in my military mind that Mr Jones is a federal dupe. He just times his rant visits to Washington's advantage to ride in as calmer of the waters.

When I call him a fraud it isn't without reason...beside having no credentials, even mail order, earlier on he was fined and chased out of Germany for proselytizing as "Doctor Terry Jones, PhD." Grifter then, grifter now, just a new shtick.

I hope you note I don't want him silenced per se, or killed, only disciplined ad hoc when he goes where he is unwelcome to capitalize on his notoriety and spread his ignorant bile.

What he infers about Dearborn is 98% bullshit. Period. We are not Cleveland or up state New York, or London, UK, or France, or Malmo. We are a city of immigrants dating back well over 100 years, including in all that time, from th start, Polish, Italian, Arab, Maltese, Irish, and the sundry settlers who founded the town of Springwells and Dearborn, later consolidated. We are closer to the first landing sight of the Back Robes on the Detroit River than most of Detroit. We have a heritage of immigrant cultures and finding a ay to get along. What you read written by outsiders is nonsense in most cases. There is no Sharia Law here, never was, never will be. So we don't need some weird Jim Crow mother fucker coming here to cleanse us. Yeah we are prejudiced against Jones' kind, but not so much amongst ourselves.

So we can agree to disagree. I agree with more of your positions than not IRCC. As for my positions, I am pretty consistent and not too concerned who agrees and who doesn't. I have the right to be wrong. And I find I am at times. NOT this time.

To clarify...I am old enough to have grown up when what block you were from made a difference. You visited other people's blocks and ran off at the mouth with insult or agitating crap, when you got a fat lip or worse, you learned basic etiquette. Insult someone from you own block, same result.

In other words, you soon learned the difference between "stand up" and "shut up."

Aridog,

If you need me to be more specific: MI honors FL permits, so why can't the "good" reverend obtain a permit in his home state and then legally carry in MI?

Kirk Parker asked....

What makes him a Prohibited Person?

Both Terry Jones and his mini-me, Warren Sapp, have fairly recent criminal records here, and regardless of being expunged, he is not entitled to CCW privileges here. "Arrests" are counted in consideration of issue, not just conviction or waiver due to expungement.

Jones and his Dove World Outreach Center & the Jim Crow church of what's happening now have resistance to law compliance in many places, including his hometown of Gainesville, Florida.

He has a habit of insisting that anything he wants to do must be free. That sound familiar?

Not sure how the fraud charge and fine in Germany impact this...that may be too old to deny reciprocity...if he even has a CPL in Florida.

But mainly, he is a dick head and I am plainly prejudiced against him. My "vigilance committee" mentality if you will. I make no pretense at being "fair" about in the modern progressive sense. I paid my dues, he needs to as well. He needs to go back to his own block and shut the flip up.

Or take a beating now and then.

Kirk Parker said...

If you need me to be more specific ...

Okay. His own pungent notoriety has bit him in the ass.

Not to mention he originally was given reciprocity...until, among other things mentioned, he managed to fire off a round outside Fox-2 studios in Southfield. Whoops.

Dude is a schmuck first class...either carrying a semi auto pistol in condition 1 (cocked and unlocked) or a revolver at full cock. I believe it was the semi auto pistol variety, but that's open I suppose.. Claimed an "AD"...which can't happen if pistol is in condition 3 (loaded magazine no round in the chamber) or a modern revolver uncocked (old time revolvers had a hammer resting on a primer in chamber, modern ones do not).

Never mind that Jones has left a cocked and unlocked firearm unattended and unsecured in his car now and then. THAT alone is against the law here.

Unless you are law enforcement, or temporarily in the process of running a store likely to be robbed, there is no excuse to carry in other than condition 3...mag in, chamber empty, uncocked. it's good enough for military police. Condition 2 (cocked and locked) is appropriate under hazard conditions. Otherwise...realize that you are not Wyatt Earp and get real.

I've managed to carry for over 40 years, and condition 3 is how 90% of the time. My preference is older than me, a full sized Model 1911, a Kimber full size all steel model these days, which sfires patterns better than I can shoot in my seniority. At 25 feet...figure that group inside
a 6 inch circle fairly gast. My group s at 75 feet (or 25 meters) ...er...don't ask. :-(

Have I mentioned is dislike the guy. Oh, I have...well okay then.

Kirk Parker said...

Ari,

Wow. Apparently stupidity is a condition that affects all of one's life.

Oh, and thanks for doing my research for me. :-)

Kirk Parker said...

Though you'll get lots of disagreement that cocked-and-locked is unsafe (I think it's perfectly fine, though personally I own nothing that would apply to.)

Well it didn't work out so well for Amy Winehouse. Just sayn'

Egypt used to be a nice place, if I remember correctly. You know, with tourists.

Tourism is its only industry. There is no oil revenue to speak of, and the Nile River valley is the only place to grow anything.

The tourist dollars are already starting to dry up. Things are going to get very ugly there.

Either the military will take over (again) withing the next year, or there will be war, civil or otherwise.

Saint Croix said...

There is no Sharia Law here, never was, never will be. So we don't need some weird Jim Crow motherfucker coming here to cleanse us. Yeah we are prejudiced against Jones' kind, but not so much amongst ourselves.

That kinda reminds me of this

Aridog said...

Saint Croix...oh, we're far more peaceful, but the sentiment is the same. As for the local Arabs, they pretty much ignore Jones when he comes to town now.

Jones is one of a few idiots who think Dearborn is under Sharia Law....99.9% of them have never spent over a day here. It's not like I don't have my own issues with Islamists and fanatics...it IS just that I don't need dipwads like Jones firing up issues that otherwise don't exist.

The real concern, from my perspective and most of my neighbors of whatever hue/faith, is that Jones pointlessly coming here could attract other radicals of the Islamist kind, or of the punk Nazi kind in the Blues Bros. clip, to come here, too...and they have no issues with hurting their own kind.

Interlopers are like the littlest guy in a big bar fight...shorty big mouth starts it then hides behind a table to watch.

We have "free speech", yes...but if it earns a fat lip we might want to think about how we say things.

PS: Don't even get me started about Nazi's. I inadvertently spent quite a bit of in time close proximity to Robert Miles here when he was alive running his "Mountain Church" affiliated with the Aryan Nations, the Brotherhood, and sundry Anarchist, Nazi and Skinhead dupes. On one day I even watched, from horseback, a cable new outfit film a documentary of a large gathering of all of the above at his place. The FBI was flying over head also filming. Terry Jones would fit right in with Bob Miles types just fine.

Kirk Parker said...

Yeah...don't I know it. I'm not dogmatic about it, I just think lethal force weapons should be carried in the condition the environment, and your job, calls for realistically. Cocked and locked is how I carry when the circumstance warrant it....but that's maybe 10% of my time overall.

I know too many otherwise well meaning people who still think that if some thug busts out their car window and has a gun already in their face...that somehow they can quick draw and fire in defense. Maybe 1 in 599 can do that...the rest, nope...most likely shoot themselves in the balls or the thigh at best.

Waiting, now, for someone to yak up the Glock style "striker fired" pistols...aka Tupperware guns with tiny trigger toggle "integrated" safety mechanisms. 5 - 4 - 3 - .... :-))

"Please, please tell you you came down on this side without actually reading the book!"

But of course, Kirk. ;-)

(I'm still trying to remember how old I was back then.)

I suppose that I just figured I understood what it felt like to be a true believer and have someone insult my G-d, and if people were really mad there had to be a reason to be mad. We really hadn't had any exposure to Islam at the time (though I was acquainted with Persians-- neighbors, surgeons, and exchange students,) and the Middle East was still geographically isolated, just like most of the world was still geographically isolated, so an international celebrity seemed likely to have been interested in celebrity and selling lots of books... seemed to me.

It's really sort of funny if you think about it, the difference between then and now.

Back then there was a huge outcry about freedom of speech, even if it was offensive speech, among liberals. It was *obvious* that the principle of free speech was more important than if Rushdie was genuinely insulting or not. It didn't matter what he'd written because no matter how bad it was, he was a writer facing censorship of the worst kind. Whereas my opinion was that it was possible to disagree respectfully and that people should respect other people's faith and not be rude.

Now it's the liberals who think it matters if the book was good or not, the movie insulting or not, and who are trying to tell us that respecting Islam is more important than free speech and that it matters if the book (or video) had artistic merit.

This is actually a profound shift in ideology on the left, and in how many years?

No, you only sought incarceration for the slight and offense of offended the religion of perpetual offense. Well, they trumped you and gave them death. Winning!!!

11. It's a 9/11 conversion, except going the other way. From liberal to quisling, just like that.

Awesome it may call as areb spring or Muslim spring according the hardness of ones heart.

But dont forget that when we are pointing one of our finger towards one point, person or a particular group, other four our fingers are pointing towards us.....
