Janet Reno and Will Ferrell
I was extremely worried the other day as I saw that the police were preparing to raid the FLDS ranch in Texas, after accusations of child abuse and rape. The FLDS are scary, no doubt. My worry was that this would turn into another Ruby Ridge or Waco. Our Federal government tramples on the rights of the individual for the "benefit of the majority" too often. Ruby Ridge and Waco tell people who are anti-government that they are right to be worried...it tells them that they need to stockpile weapons and they need to be uber-secretive and uber-prepared to resist the government violently. It makes people on the fence between move to the side that says the government is out to get us and we need to be ready.
The FLDS raid did not turn into Ruby Ridge and Waco, (thankfully Janet Reno wasn't around to screw things up) ... but those situations need to be kept in mind. Both the minds of the people in charge of Federal police agencies and in our minds ... "we the people".
Here are links to a few related stories:
* The members of the FLDS group in Texas thankfully did not resist violently.
* Texas defends its decision to separate the FLDS kids from their parents.
* The FLDS moms are upset that they have been separated from their kids...they weren't upset when the kids were forced to engage in sexual activity with older members of the church, but being apart from them, that stinks. These FLDS people are insane. Warren Jeffs and his followers need a lobotomy.
Here is why being a "politically correct" culture will destroy the West. Brigitte Bardot is being persecuted for believing that Islam is destroying France. From Reuters "Prosecutors asked that the Paris court hand the 73-year-old former sex symbol a two-month suspended prison sentence and fine her 15,000 euros ($23,760) for saying the Muslim community was "destroying our country and imposing its acts"." Political Correctness says it is a crime to say what you believe...are you kidding me. NEWSFLASH....Islam IS destorying France AND Imposing its acts on the French people!
Not only that, Islam is destroying our world, and we western nations who believe in the rights of all mankind are letting it. Our moral superiority is a built in self destruct mechanism. Because we are better than them, we let them in and we let them practice their religion how they see fit. We then let their communities practice as they see fit, very soon those communities are electing Muslims to office, then they will be constructing policy...it is some dangerous ground that we western nations walk on today.
Here is a little more of the talk that has gotten Ms. Bardot in trouble:
""I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country and imposing its acts..."
Bardot has previously said France is being invaded by sheep-slaughtering Muslims and published a book attacking gays, immigrants and the unemployed, in which she also lamented the "Islamisation of France"." Here, here...
* Ahmadinejad is an a**-clown ... (pardon my Iranian).
* This articel has some very scary information, folks.
* Here is a little background on "Expelled", the Ben Stein movie which opens this Friday.
* There was a travesty of justice in Miami.
* Just how conservative could John McCain possibly be with Joe Lieberman willing to support him so ardently at the Republican National Convention? If the Republican party wants to right its ship...they have to dump McCain at the Convention and nominate someone else, perhaps, Newt Gingrich?
