Folk who still get to look at buildings defiled by Jihadi from pre-Columbian days have a different perspective on hearing the same threats as their ancestors. Little things like "30,000 prisoners were raped and murdered here" on a plaque in the town square, and detailed descriptions of the rivers of blood running down the street, as on tv they are told to keep their women off the streets because the invading army can't help itself from raping them, because dressed that way they are asking for it.
And elitist rich leftist snobs wonder why there's folk voting for people who promise to curb unrestricted importation of army aged men by the thousands to be given the taxes of the working class in the form of free housing and generous dole payments.
Naturally, I'm biased in favor of the side that doesn't want to murder me.
This may be the most important struggle in the 21st century.
As an American Citizen I'm more immediately concerned with neo-Marxist religious assault on my Nation, but the Reform of Islam into a faith that can be lived alongside is a close second on a planetary scale.
American University is in DC, and the backdrop reads somethingsomething Heritage Foundation. I'm guessing it was some sort of presser in DC at some point. All I know is, ma sent it to me because she's just as tired of all the PC bullshit as I am - and at 82, she can say so in public, with no filters, and nobody yells at her!
That lady nailed it, accurately. 180-300 million people think it is just fine to murder You. Surveys showed 200 million ( ten years ago ) think it is just fine to murder You, if you say Islam is violent.
So, over the whole planet, including here in America, including a couple of Members of Congress, there are people roughly equal to the population of the United States ( not counting 50 million criminal trespassers ) who will support, with money and by hiding them and lying to the police, and giving them weapons, the tiny minority of a few million terrorist who are not just thinking it is good and proper to murder You, but will murder You if they get any chance at all.
More people than the entire U.S. Army in WW1 Will murder you.
Let's take a confirmed, slightly old, and generous number of 200 million willing to watch you did & cheer. If only 10% are willing to actually burn your babies alive, then we have 20 million ready to board a plane, if given a ticket to murder You.
That's the entire total of the Russian Army over the entire course of WW1, supported by every Citizen of the United States in 2019.
Well, darn. That's too freaking obscure.
Ok, how about... 8 times the entire Chinese Army, Today? In fact, if we use the 10% figure, that's the Armies of China, India, U.S., North Korea, Russia, Pakistan, Egypt, Iraq, Brazil, Indonesia, South Korea, Turkey, Iran, Vietnam & Mynamar, combined, Today. (2011)
That's in order. China is over 2.5 million alone, India over 2 million, and this is before the Obama cuts to our military at an obsolete 1.5 million. We may be behind N. Korea, today.
Even that number is incomprehensible, and IHMO too high. I suspect that it's only the same number as the entire Chinese, Russian, and Iranian armies combined that are an actual threat, or 1 out of 5 American Citizens, that are not just fine with the idea but would actually murder You if they had a gun and were at your house.
Of course, that's spread over a planet, so they can't all be here at once. they just come in larger & larger waves and are now supported by the Majority Party in the House. Who will willingly allow them into our country, to murder You.
Today, so far, it's just a country music festival here, a gay nightclub there, a Marathon somewhere else, scattered in time and space from sea to sea. The trend is accelerating.
However, the Democrat Party position is that a few dozen White Power Rednecks, ( almost all fellow Democrats ) are the REAL THREAT, and even more important is to ban plastic bags and keep you from eating meat.
They need to play that video in EVERY school classroom, and on EVERY cable channel, in Minnesota.
Over and over again.
"we stopped visiting our cousins for Christmas because they had roving checkpoints...if your ID said you were Christian, they got all of you out of the car and shot you right there"
"neighbors who we barbequed with last weekend, were now trying to massacre us".
"I lived in a bomb shelter for 7 years, from 10 to 17 years of age".
Because the Muslims took over.
The peaceful minority IS irrelevant, especially when the radical minority is walking down YOUR street, shooting you and your children and your neighbors, simply because you aren't Muslim.
That's the only reason they need.
I'd say the "peaceful majority" needs to take a stand against the radicals...but they're scared to death, and for good reason. But...if they want to cower and hide, they have no reason to get upset when "we" (white Christians) lump them all together. "If you're not with us, you're against us". Plain and simple. If you want to be with us...you need to stand with us, against the radical terrorists.
Unless you want to murder more innocent civilians than the Red Chinese government, the only hope for Islam to coexist with mankind is a Reformation. It has to come from within.
Until there are literally hundreds of millions of Muslims willing to denounce Mullahs that call for violent Jihad, and tens of millions willing to kill the Obedient Islamists, the EXACT OPPOSITE of today, then there is every reason to consider the no-$%&# real War that is now ongoing to be a conflict that no-$%&# just be fought. The EXACT OPPOSITE of Leftist policy.
Boycott all countries that export terrorism. All countries that practice Sharia. Not one dime in purchases. Not one drop of oil. Not one sale of guns, butter, mutton. No immigration from those countries.
To truly save Mother Earth, you need to not ban plastic straws in California, but ban all sales of plastic anything to the terrorist countries.
And that in turn means full on trade war, and probably Hot War with China, who supports terrorist Islam at the same time they put them in reeducation camps to tell them not to worship Allah, but Xi, the current God King of the Middle Kingdom.
And before we can do that, we'd have to fire the Leftist Judges that would forbid every step to save the world. A not at all Civil War.
Not going to happen. The casualties are far too many.
Consider the War We Won't Fight in chronological and territorial order.
Destroy the results of a century of the take over of our education system by Regressives. No one even had a rational plan I've heard for that short of decades of cultural change. The Freedom side won't use concentration camps. The Regressives will.
Free China. The biggest army in the world with a brutal murderous dictatorship. I'd live to see that plan.... I love science fiction.
Free the Islamic world. A bigger army of suicidal torturing murderous loons than the top ten "legitimate" armies, combined.
Then rescue the survivors of the cities in flames.
Not Going To Happen.
You can point to a moment in the past, in 1945, when the United States had, temporarily, the power & opportunity to defeat Stalin, Mao, and purge Soviet infiltration, which would have saved well over a billion people from being murdered by their own government and created a very different and better world.
I see no such moment in our present.
Thus, the slow way is the only option. Vote against the Green Leap Forward party at home. Work to save Hong Kong and screw the God King so his own followers cut his throat & change the course of war. Negotiate with, yep, Putin to crush the E.U. & partner with A free Britain when they Brescape this holloween.
Not to be deliberately insulting to the religion who follows a man of peace, who's primary message is to love one another, but I question if it's the right religion to refuse Sharia?
Never mind the Crusades, which took place when there was only One Church ( which was splintered into East and West, and a major reason for the Pope in Rome to endorse expeditions to free the Holy Land ) and cynical historians consider a ploy to give the younger sons who would not inherit the family power something to go get killed for. That Church is a shadow of it's old self, and now dominated by a man charitably described as an agent of a failed, atheist, Soviet Secret Police agency. The Crusades won't repeat.
Also, the Party that is now indistinguishable from ( being run by ) a failed, atheist Soviet Secret Police agency in it's treatment of Christianity and openly denies the existence of any God other than their Holy State, welcomes any cultural force that crushes freedom of thought.
It's a minor overstatement to say things are as bad as the days when Rome sent Christians to the arena to be eaten by lions. But that's partly because of animal rights activists. Ben Hur might keep silent to avoid being targeted on Twitter, today.
Not used to animal sacrifice? Islam isn't the only one that still practices that.
I'm jaded, because my Grandfather was a butcher, and I'm from Beef & Corn country, and I've watched Halal/Kosher slaughter. And other, industrial & older ways. It's actually a very humane technique all things considered. Messy, scary for kids, and not for the squeamish, but as painless as it gets. Not my favorite thing to watch on the way to breakfast.
What happens to the cow after? Steaks for me or fragrance for the gods doesn't matter to the cow.
Not my faith but not scary voodoo either.
To be honest I prefer my food in nice pieces that don't remind me too much of the animal. That's a cultural thing, what I grew up with. Other cultures eat fish heads, etc.
But I'm not the kind that wants to boycott hunting because you should get your meat at the store where no animals are killed to get it.

Looked at with the right left spin, the Iranian foreign minister's death threats against protesters in Sweden isn't that different than a Trump Twit telling the Hate Squad to go back and fix the problems at home before telling us what to do.
You know, the same! Except for the tens of thousands murdered and the actual torture and I haven't heard that Elizabeth Warren or Spartacus Booker were taken in the night and buried alive in a secret grave to make them stop talking trash about Trump's regime.
And stop smiling at the thought! Bad Conservatives! Bad!
Man, that's tough. Could you leave your family to be hostages, abused and ( threatened to be murdered ) just to Save your own life? There's little doubt this journalist was on his way to a slit throat and an unmarked, shallow grave. Iran has a religious dictatorship that uses snipers on women in the street to terrorize their own subjects.
But escaping, probably just temporarily, while your family is being held hostage?
Somebody has to live in order for the story to be told.
I saw a movie about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in WWII. In it a baby is smothered to keep it from making noise and giving up the peoples position. Don't know if it was a true account, but I don't doubt it, or something like it happened...
