Robert Spencer Nails Groundhog Day

Via Jihad Watch:

And now here is today’s Jihad Watch news:

1. Some jihadis somewhere will blow something up and kill some people.
2. In their public statements they will quote Qur’an, invoke Muhammad, and explain that they did it all to advance Islam.
3. Mainstream media stories about the attack will never mention Islam, or Jihad, and will speculate about the desperate poverty and political oppression that led this group to carry out this attack.
4. Obama will lament this “tragedy,” call the attackers “isolated extremists,” and announce a new U.S. aid package for the area they come from, again without ever mentioning Islam or jihad, except to praise the great and noble religion of Islam.
5. I will post the attackers’ public statements here at Jihad Watch.
6. Leftist and Islamic supremacist groups will see #5 and call me an Islamophobe and a bigot, without ever taking notice of #2.

Tune in again tomorrow, when:

1. Some jihadis somewhere will blow something up and kill some people.

It’s Groundhog Day!

 Pure gold from a true patriot.

Socialists, Russians and Islamists

January 28, 2010 2 comments

Recently at the urging of a reader, I watched the above video from the 80s in which Yuri Bezmenov, a former KGB agent outlines the use of Russian ideological subversion outlined well in this American Thinker piece.  The whole series of fascinating videos that make up the interview can be found beginning here and all seem quite prescient when put in context of contemporary America.  Islamists have used the same tactics that the ex-KGB agent outlines in terms of working to demoralize us by inculcating academia and the media with pro-Islamofascist views (and having them propagate this message to the last generation of elites amongst others), and furthering this message with groups like CAIR and useful idiots in the ACLU, while also working to destabilize us with terrorist attacks to drive us towards crisis.

That Islamists have both stealthily and overtly brainwashed Americans into paralysis when it comes to realizing the threat of Islam dovetails well with Bezmenov’s description of ideological subversion.  Bezmenov characterizes it as “[An] overt…slow process…[to] change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country.”

Given the parallels between the Russian communists and the Islamists, I delved a bit deeper into their ties, and there seems to be definitive evidence that the KGB schooled Muslims for decades, and that even in modern day Russia, Islamic terrorists including perhaps even AQ#2 Ayman Al-Zawahiri were trained by Russian intelligence.  Yasser Arafat is perhaps the very embodiment of this tie, as he was a master of ideological subversion, trained as an agent of the KGB.  Litvinenko argued before he was assassinated that Putin and the Russians may have been in on 9/11 himself.  It would make sense that Putin would publicly take a “hard line” stance against the Islamic terrorists in his country as a means of misdirection when he in fact is supporting them against the West (hence the cozy ties with Iran amongst others).  And of course even if this support wasn’t merely on political and ideological grounds, if nothing else the chaos brought on by terrorists would help the Russians economically by driving up the price of oil.

In my view, Russia and the Marxists generally never ended their war against the West.  That Putin, a former KGB bigwig effectively still runs the country is a testament to this.  The Marxists were smart — while fiscally they may have collapsed, I believe they falsely surrendered at the end of the Cold War, reorganizing and “reforming” only to the extent that they would look more tame to the Western world.  The socialists were never militarily routed, so it is not as if everyone in Russia, Eastern Europe, Asia and the moles and propagandists they planted in other countries was suddenly forced to repudiate communism.  The changes in their governmental system and rhetoric are akin to those made by socialist shell organizations that have evolved over time in the US, altering organization and name, and hiding their nefarious agenda behind a visage of moderation.

Thus, I’d like to proffer the ultimate hypothesis that the Marxists are aiding and abetting Islam as part of their strategy to bring the West to its knees.  I believe however that they will underestimate the strength of the force they have raised in Islam.  While the socialists and Islamists have a common enemy in the West now, I am sure that Muslims would just as soon turn on the Russians, Chinese and others if the West were destroyed.  G-d forbid we get to that point.

I grant that proving this point will require a significantly greater amount of research, but I put forth this view because it strikes me at first blush as a major revelation, that I believe may prove essential in understanding the war on America.  That the Progressives (socialists) and Islamists have followed the same tactics in my view is not coincidental, and in context of the events of the last handful of decades has much explanatory value.  The only difference between the Progressives and Islamists of today is that Islamists serve as both a psychological and military arm of the socialists in their war on civilization.

Another Example of Why You Can’t Trust Government to Protect You

At Mellon’s Musings, though only touched upon briefly, we have long been aware of the threat of Islam.  Islamists have been waging a war both ideological and physical on our soil and on the West generally for decades, bolstered (even by ostensible defenders of liberty) by political correctness and the complacence of our government and citizenry.  For all the problems our nation faces, in reality this is our most serious because it is existential.  The struggles of a nation in economic malaise are nothing compared with those of a nation under attack by an apparently stronger-willed and better-prepared enemy, composed of people who gleefully blow themselves up in their barbaric cause.

In this context, I found the below two videos showing the outright complicity of our defense in fostering terrorism on our own soil (yes you read that right) to be quite chilling and exemplary of the monumental challenges we face going forward.  If nothing else, this should serve as a reminder to all across the political spectrum that in the final analysis you cannot trust your government to protect you on any level.  This is why the most important thing that we as individuals can do is take the necessary measures to arm and protect ourselves, be it through education, the ballot box or G-d forbid our Constitutional right to bear arms.  Right now, as a nation we are woefully unprepared to deal with an enemy willing to sacrifice its own people to dictate the lives of ours.
