The Real Haters and Their Targets

By: Cliff Kincaid

As incredible as it seems, an anchor for the terror channel Al Jazeera is hosting an upcoming “documentary” on “Hate In America.” It appears, based on a press release issued in advance, that the program will spend absolutely no time at all on the threats or hate directed against those who have been falsely labeled “Islamophobes” by such groups as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Council on American Islamic Relations.

In fact, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is one of the “partners” producing the documentary along with Al Jazeera anchor Tony Harris. It is scheduled to air on February 23rd on the Investigation Discovery channel. Another “partner” is NBC News’ production arm, Peacock Productions.

The release says the program “features the racially charged murder of a black father in Mississippi who died after being beaten and run over; the gruesome mass shooting of a Wisconsin Sikh congregation; and a brutal anti-gay attack on the streets of New York City.”

While there are certainly hateful incidents and crimes against blacks, homosexuals, and others, the idea that the SPLC should be put forward as a legitimate arbiter of what constitutes “hate” is laughable. It tends to be critical of people who write or act critically of radical Islam, the United Nations, President Obama or the homosexual lobby.

The hate that has been generated against critics of radical Islam can be seen in the murder of 12 cartoonists, journalists and two police officers in France.

President Obama on Wednesday called these terrorists “cowards.” But he had told the United Nations in 2012, “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.” The French writers were connected with a magazine that published cartoons making fun of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

One of the dead writers was specifically named as a target by an al-Qaeda magazine.

Blogger and activist Pamela Geller notes that in 2012, then-White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, rather than defending freedom of the press and speech, instead attacked the French magazine for publishing the cartoons, saying the images would be “deeply offensive to many.”

The SPLC targets its critics by name as well, labeling them “hate groups” and running photographs of officers and employees so they can more easily be identified. The group was implicated in the 2012 terrorist attack on the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Family Research Council (FRC), when homosexual militant Floyd Corkins entered its offices and shot a security guard. He had intended to shoot and kill many others.

An investigation found that Corkins identified his target on the website of the SPLC, which provides maps of locations of various alleged “hate groups,” as well as names of their leaders and officials. The FRC was listed as one such group.

The SPLC’s “Teaching tolerance” project ran an article praising unrepentant communist terrorist bomber Bill Ayers as a “civil rights organizer, radical anti-Vietnam War activist, teacher and author.” An “editor’s note” went so far as to say that Ayers had become “a highly respected figure in the field of multicultural education.”

In fact, Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn participated in bombing campaigns against people and police, and were open supporters of communist regimes in Hanoi and Havana. They use education as a weapon against “white supremacy” and capitalism.

In a column on the hate crimes racket, we noted that the media strategy behind SPLC’s use of the “hate” label to describe conservatives serves to demonize them and convey the impression that they should not be taken seriously and are outside the mainstream. In the case of the FRC and other Christian organizations, the SPLC’s main objection is to the group’s mission of documenting the harm that is caused by homosexual behavior and promiscuity to society, the family, and the individuals practicing it.

The fact that an anchor for Al Jazeera would be part of a program on “hate” is simply beyond belief. Al Jazeera is the channel of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group linked to various Islamic terrorist groups such as Hamas. Its financial sponsor is the terrorist-supporting government of Qatar in the Middle East.

The SPLC lists its enemies by name, identifying their cities and towns, thus making it easier for violent lunatics and terrorists to find them. Such was the case with the FRC.

This writer was named on one SPLC list of “30 new activists heading up the radical right.” That, in turn, was picked up by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which included me on a list of “Islamophobic individuals.” All such claims are demonstrably false and designed to silence the exercise of one’s First Amendment rights. In more extreme cases, such as the FRC case, the SPLC’s attacks can make those named into targets and victims of violence or terrorism.

Nevertheless, the Investigation Discovery (ID) channel is giving the SPLC unwarranted positive national publicity. The channel describes itself as one of the nation’s fastest growing cable networks, delivering programming to nearly 85 million U.S. households.

Its claim about delivering the “highest-quality programming” to news consumers has now come into serious dispute, at a time when throwing around the term “hate” can have fateful consequences.

#JeSuisCharlie: So, You Don’t Like Mohammed Cartoons, Huh?

By: Brent Parrish
The Right Planet

hebdo-tomorrow

Dana Loesch has a good piece up on her blog with an accompanying video segment that sums up quite succinctly my views on the hypocrisy and spinelessness of major news networks who are refusing to publish cartoons published by the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

A growing list of Western news outlets—NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, New York Daily News, New York Times, Associated Press,  The Telegraph, etc.—have decided to not publish any of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons, lest they offend Moslems.

The astonishing hypocrisy behind the decision to not publish any of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons is pathetic. Some of the aforementioned news networks have no qualms with publishing offensive artwork or caricatures of Christians and Jews.

For example, in 2006, the New York Times published a photograph of the Virgin Mary covered in Elephant dung.

Virgin-Mary-in-Elephant-Dung

Yet the NYT, et al., refuses to publish any depictions of the “Prophet Muhammad.”

Muhammad-blowing-top

david-burge-hebdo-tweet

And then there is the example of the infamous “piss Christ”—so-called artwork that was funded by the U.S. government with tax-payer dollars. Many left-wing media outlets had no reservations whatsoever in publishing such offensive “art.”

NYDN-Muhammad-Cartoons

I would call Charlie Hebdo’s satirical newspaper an “Equal Opportunity Offender.” Hebdo mocked all religions, as well as politicians.

Hebdo-EOO

Hebdo-Religions

The thought some people are so offended by a mere cartoon or caricature that they believe they can act as judge, jury and executioner is just sheer evil and cannot be tolerated by those of us who believe in the unalienable rights of the individual.

My good bud Terresa Monroe-Hamilton over at Noisy Room sums up my feelings on the matter.

Via Noisy Room:

We must not let fear stop us from exercising free speech and calling out the murderers as they strike those who would raise their voices against a broken and corrupt theology and political structure. Each of us must endeavor to show these asshats the disrespect and mockery they deserve. They can’t shut all of us up – they can’t kill every one of us. I choose to not be silenced, not be cowed, not kneel before a barbaric Caliphate and its evil followers. ISIS and the rest of their Islamic cohorts can stuff it. You can kiss my ass.

Our Constitution is quite clear when it comes to free speech. Nowhere does it state that we have an inalienable right to not be offended. I’ve been “offended” many times by things I’ve seen and read. But it doesn’t give me the right to mow people down en masse; nor does it give me the right to silence anyone’s right to speak freely.

Daniel Greenfield writes at Frontpagemag.com:

Standing up to the Jihadists takes more than a hashtag. It demands that we practice the freedom they hate so much.

Not all Western news outlets are giving in to the insidiousness of “political correctness,” and practicing tolerance for evil. The Berliner Kurier (Berlin Courier) newspaper ran the following front page that reads, “No! You will not murder our freedom!”

Berliner-Kurier

Via the Berlin’s BZ paper:

Berlin-BZ

When the sworn enemies of freedom engage in barbaric crimes against humanity, for the sole purpose of silencing any criticism of themselves, then one must fight fire with fire. There will be no debate on the matter, as far as I’m concerned. If you have declared war on me, then I will declare war on you. Period.

Weakness is provocative. By allowing butchering murderers to silence those who “offend” them, it simply rewards atrocious behavior. And when bad behavior is ignored or condoned, bad behavior is emboldened, thereby encouraging only more of the same.

And why wouldn’t it?

Was not the goal to silence, intimidate and frighten anyone who does not agree with the severe and merciless ideology of the rampaging Moslem terrorists in Paris who shouted “allah u’ akbar!” as they brutally shot down Charlie Hebdo and his colleagues?

Shouldn’t that be obvious?

Is the answer to capitulate to all of their demands …  just give the terrorists what they want? Is that victory? Is that wisdom? No. It’s called defeat … utter defeat!

I am Charlie. I will not be silenced.

NoisyRoom.net Proudly Publishes the Mohammed Cartoons – Everyone Should Flood the Web With Them

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

We will not be subjugated by radical Islam – period. The Jihadists can pound sand. Today’s murder of those at Charlie Hedbo, the Mohammed cartoonist and 11 others at a French media outlet, was a sad and horrific event. I watched as a cop pleaded for his life and was executed, cold-bloodily by an Islamist. 15 others were wounded. As my friend Zombie put it aT PJ Media: “Today’s terror attack on Charlie Hedbo, the irreverent French satirical magazine that was one of the few media outlets in France to publish the original “Mohammed cartoons,” is an attempt by Islamic fundamentalists to enforce shari’a worldwide, even on non-Muslims.” It was indeed… may those who died at Charlie find peace and bless their souls. Murdered for the crime of satire. France is now at war from within. Better clean Jihadist house and quick.

We must not let fear stop us from exercising free speech and calling out the murderers as they strike those who would raise their voices against a broken and corrupt theology and political structure. Each of us must endeavor to show these asshats the disrespect and mockery they deserve. They can’t shut all of us up – they can’t kill every one of us. I choose to not be silenced, not be cowed, not kneel before a barbaric Caliphate and its evil followers. ISIS and the rest of their Islamic cohorts can stuff it. You can kiss my ass.

You will not silence our voices. You will not invalidate the Constitution of the United States and our freedoms. You will not enslave those who will fight until the death if necessary to defeat you. I’ll dance with you right into eternity if I have to. Every Christian, every Jew, every person who gives a damn about freedom… you need to post these cartoons and yell it from the rooftops. We will not submit. Ever. I intend to post these cartoons and I reserve the right to do a two-step boogie on a Quran if I choose to. Stuff that in your hookah and smoke it.

Having said that, Zombie has published the cartoons again and has all of them on file for posterity. Zombie speaketh:

The Mohammed Image Archive, which I have hosted at zombietime since the day of the original “Mohammed cartoon crisis” back in May of 2006, has not only a full collection of the original cartoons, but more importantly the largest collection of Mohammed imagery ever assembled in the history of the world.

I hereby grant permission, and even encourage, anyone reading this to repost any images found anywhere on the Mohammed Image Archive. No limits. Repost them all, if you want to.

Go to any of these pages, download whatever images you choose, repost, and help to win the most important cultural war humanity has faced in a long time:

Without further ado, I give you a sampling of le cartoons – Bon Appetit – this is for you Charlie Hedbo:


The original cartoon that started the entire controversy back in 2006, which culminated in today’s terror attack.


Illustration showing Mohammed (on the right) preaching his final sermon to his earliest converts, on Mount Arafat near Mecca; taken from a medieval-era manuscript of the astronomical treatise The Remaining Signs of Past Centuries by the Persian scholar al-Biruni; currently housed in the collection of the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris (Manuscrits Arabe 1489 fol. 5v).


“Mohammed Cursing the Vines,” German woodcut print, c. 1481. Presumably Mohammed is cursing the vines for producing the grapes that got him drunk.


This prescient cartoon was published way back in 2006 by J.J. McCullough.


In 1928, Liebig’s Extract of Meat Company issued a series of advertising trading cards to promote its canned beef extract products. The 1928 card set illustrated six different pivotal points in Mohammed’s life. The most striking of the cards was the second one, seen here, which showed the Archangel Gabriel escorting Mohammed up to the presence of Allah in Paradise — the climax of his legendary “Night Journey.”


The Israeli magazine Nana published this picture showing the aftermath of a four-way orgy involving Jesus, Mohammed, Moses and Buddha.


“Piss Mohammed” is a parody of Andres Serrano’s “Piss Christ” that incorporates the original controversial Danish cartoon.


“Married to Children,” a parody of the TV sitcom “Married with Children,” lampoons Mohammed’s marriage to the 6-year-old Aisha. It circulated extensively on the Web in the months after the 2006 cartoon crisis.


The caption to this cartoon by Steph Bergol says, in French:
Mohammed (being carried away by devils): “It is a judicial error! I am Mohammed, the prophet!”
St. Peter (with a scimitar through his chest): “Definitely: GUILTY!”

A special thanks to Zombie who has shown courage and steadfastness through all of this. Thank you for sending me the article and cartoons. Glad to be in the fight with you, my friend.
