Let's Discuss What Muslims Want

Readers have been writing in to ask me about my take on what is going on in our schools, pertaining to Muslim demands regarding Islamic prayer in schools and such. Well here you go!

Thomas Jefferson's policy for dealing with Native Americans was simple. He said, "let our settlements and theirs meet and blend together, to intermix, and become one people."

America has, for the most part, worked to become one people.

Whether it was to find a common ground to right the wrongs of our past, or whether it was simply us evolving as a nation to accept each other's ways so that we can become one people, America has had "to meet and blend together, to intermix," to become one people the world knows as Americans.

And yes, it has been a tough road to get to a place where people from other nations can blend together. A huge part of our success in the struggle is the assimilation of people wanting to accept the laws of our land as set fourth in out Constitution.

Assimilation has everything to do with how people of different backgrounds and beliefs allow themselves to become part of the community, such as when the Irish immigrants came to America in the 19th century. They joined in and became part of the fabric of America. They didn't want to be treated "separate and special" -- just "equal". 

During our history, we have proven that the struggle to be equal has not been easy. Take for example how in 1890 a new Louisiana law required railroads to provide "equal but separate accommodations for the white and colored races." This led to the "Separate But Equal" segregation laws.

If the term "Separate But Equal" rings a bell, that's because "Separate But Equal" was a legal doctrine in United States Constitutional Law that justified and permitted racial segregation. It was said not to be a breach of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution which guaranteed equal protection under the law and other federal civil rights laws to all citizens.

Under the "Separate But Equal" doctrine, federal, state, county, and city governments were allowed to require that services, facilities, public accommodations, housing, medical care, education, employment, and transportation be separated along racial lines, provided that the quality of each group's public facilities was equal.

The phrase was derived from a Louisiana law of 1890 actually used the phrase "equal but separate." And yes, believe it or not, the "Separate But Equal" doctrine was confirmed in 1896 in the Plessy v. Ferguson decision. The Supreme Court actually said that state-sponsored segregation was allowed.

The "Separate But Equal" doctrine was finally overturned, but only after a series of Supreme Court decisions that lasted through much of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s involving many court cases and federal legislation.

So now, why do Muslims want to be "separate and special," and is it legal? Why do they want special treatment, special accommodations, special preferences? 

And frankly, since "Separate But Equal" was struck down, aren't schools and other institutions who provide "Separate And Special" accommodations breaking the law as they are in violation of the Constitution?

Research shows that Islam is far behind Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism, in faiths being observed in America. Fact is, compared to 78.3% who follow Christianity, 16.4% unaffiliated, 1.8% Judaism and 1.2% Buddhism, Muslims account for only 0.9% of the population.

So with that, why are Christians being persecuted in the United States? And frankly, why are people appeasing Muslims by meeting their demands for preferential treatment in a nation that is not supposed to give any group preferential treatment?

According to the Obama White House, the Democrat Party, Liberal Hollywood, the Liberal Media, there has been an increase in something the Liberal Left has termed "Islamophobia" -- which Liberals define as "An exaggerated fear, hatred, and hostility toward Islam and Muslims that is perpetuated by negative stereotypes resulting in bias, discrimination, and the marginalization and exclusion of Muslims from social, political, and civic life."

Let's make something real clear, when the stereotype is true the stereotype is true. It is not exaggerated when it is true. There is no "bias, discrimination, and the marginalization and exclusion" when Muslims are in fact getting separate and special treatment when compared to other religions in America.

In 2014, researchers have found that Muslims are the most disliked religious group in the United States with more people disliking Muslims than do Atheists. Why? It is because we react to what we see.

Show me a rude person and I believe them to be rude. Show me a religion in love with blood and murder, and I'll show you Islam. Let's face facts, while not all Muslims are un-American, there are Muslims who have absolutely no desire to assimilate -- "to meet and blend together, to intermix, and become one people."

And yes, though most of us do not know the difference between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, or the fact that Shiite Muslims are the violent wing of Islam, Americans and the world are absolutely justified in their dislike of Muslims by what we are seeing.

While Sunni Muslims make up almost 85 percent of the Muslim population globally, and Shiites account for perhaps 13 percent, Sunnis are estimated to account for about 90 percent of U.S. Muslims. Sunnis and Shiites split in the 7th century over many things including following the more violent parts of the Koran.

Today we see what is taking place around the world, and more importantly what is taking place here to America -- especially to our public institutions such as our schools and how Americans are bending over backwards meet the demands of Muslims at the expense of taxpayers -- and this has increased our distrust of all Muslims.

Why is Christian prayer outlawed while Muslim prayer is embraced by schools and in our government?

Friends, I am plenty old enough to remember when American children said the Pledge of Allegiance in both public and private schools. Liberal Atheists did not like the idea that the Pledge of Allegiance includes the words "Under God" so they worked to actually get the United States Supreme Court to rule that the Pledge of Allegiance could not be recited in schools because of those two words "Under God." 

Of course, Liberals used the phrase "Under God" to rid American schools of the whole Pledge of Allegiance simply because Liberals do not believe in having an allegiance to the United States, but that is for another article at another time.

Right now we need to focus on how Liberals fought to have the Pledge removed using the pretense that the phrase "Under God" violated the First Amendment of the Constitution and the "separation of church and state,"  yet see nothing wrong with Muslim ritual prayers in public schools.

The Liberals at the ACLU stated that the term "Under God" made the Pledge a Christian prayer and it was being forced upon children in public school. 

Today, Islam is truly being forced upon children in public schools. So now, now where are the Liberals and the ACLU when public colleges, high schools, middle and elementary schools accommodate Muslim children attending these schools by permitting Islamic prayer rituals or by constructing footbaths for Muslim students -- all using tax-payers' money?

Why are there special accommodations made only to satisfy the needs of Muslims -- while in direct violation of the U.S Constitutional provisions of separating church and state? 

How is it that 0.9% of the population, Muslims, demand to be treated separate and special, and not simply "Equal" and get public schools to make special accommodations specifically for American Muslims by adding Arabic to its curriculum and also giving breaks for Muslim prayers right there in public schools?

Is it OK to have a nation where Americans who practice other religions do not have the special political and economic rights of Muslims? Is the desire by Muslims here to be treated separate and special really OK? I don't believe it is. And yes, I believe we should fight it.

Why is the Obama White House, the Department of Education, Liberal Politicians in state and even county educational systems, endorsing Islam when no such exceptions being made for any other religious group -- past or present?

In some cities with heavy Muslim populations, school board officials have actually eliminated traditional American holiday celebrations after Muslim parents complained that those celebrations are "offensive" to Muslims? 

Because of the Muslim demands to be separate and special, Americans do not see Muslims in the United States as wanting to assimilate into American society. As with most Americans, this is the very same reason that the vast majority of people in Europe and Australia do not see Muslims as wanting to be a part of their countries either. They refuse to assimilate. 

Yes, Muslim desire to be separate and special is the same reason that Americans, Australians, and Europeans are now finding out that Muslims do not want to assimilate -- but actually demand that we convert to Islam.  

And yes, that is also the reason that Americans do not see Muslims in the United States are as being able to be loyal to the United States and our Constitution. In fact, since Muslim leaders have stated that the "law of the land" in the United States does not apply to them because they "must follow" the Koran. Yes, that is why Americans see Muslims as unable to follow our laws, unable to be loyal to the United States, and unable to treating other Americans as they want to be treated. 

This fact, the fact that they "must follow" the Koran over any Civil Law, is the number one reason that Muslims are not qualified for any sort of public office in any country that does not practice Sharia Law.

And no, while Obama may be trying to get Sharia Law observed in America, the application of Sharia Law is in direct violation of the laws governing the United States of America  as stated in our Constitution. We only have one law of the land -- not two or three or more depending on what religion you practice or what Leftist political faction you follow.

The lie that the Obama administration has tried to spread is that Muslims have given the world so much. That is blatantly untrue. If anything, Muslims have tried to stifle, to choke, to suffocate, to drown, to cut off human growth through hate and adherence to the words of their blood-thirsty prophet. 

Muslims inaccurately represented Islam, and are intolerant of people of other religions in the United States. As a public official, one cannot be bias against Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, or any other American who is not Muslim. They cannot do this is accordance with Islam.

And whether Atheist Liberals and Muslims want to admit it or not, to adhere to the tenets of Islam means that one has to be loyal to Islam before being loyal to the Constitution of the United States.

By demanding to be treated separately and special, American-Muslim pubic officials treat Muslims one way and non-Muslim Americans differently. And to them, the United States Constitution demands that Muslims violate what their beloved Koran instructs them to do. And yes, that's why they are "disqualified" for political office.

In my opinion, President Obama has demonstrated this very point since being elected: Muslims cannot be loyal to the United States Constitution, the law of the land, and their Islamic faith at the same time.

That is why Obama has violated the Constitution so many times, he puts his Muslim faith ahead of what is good for America. And yes, Obama feels he is entitled to special accommodations to do so. Obama believes that Muslims should be treated separate and special.

Has Obama and Muslims throughout the world shown the world that they cannot be trusted? Absolutely. Remember, the Koran instructs Muslims to say one thing while doing another --especially to non-Muslims.

Examples: 1) Muslims say their Koran does not condone violence, yet the majority of violence being perpetrated around the world and especially in Europe and the Middle-East right now has to do with Muslims acting out what the Koran instructs them to do. 2) Muslim say their culture does not glorify suicide, yet they have a belief in martyrdom to appease their blood-thirsty prophet who orders Muslims to kill those who refuse to convert to Islam. 3) Muslims are a threat to the entire world.

Because of this, the vast majority of Americans do not see Islam as a trustworthy or peaceful religion. And while Liberals love to label articles like this as "Islamophobia" -- I assure you it isn't.

This article is simply trying to answer a few simple questions while truly understanding the reasons why Muslims want to be treated separately and special. It is simply our understanding of America's number one enemy today.

I'm simply giving my readers my opinion. I believe that Muslims want special treatment, to be treated separately from the rest of our society, and to dominate the Western world through threats and violence. That's what I see them wanting. 

Liberals like to hoist such labels as "Islamophobia" upon Americans in an effort to demean those of us who refuse to accept what's going on around us. Fact is, it is the truth of what Muslims are doing in America and around the world.

Muslims are demanding that federal, state, county, and city governments allow special concessions, services, facilities, public accommodations, housing, medical care, education, employment, and transportation all be separated along religious lines. Muslims say they require special treatment, special accommodations, special this and special that to satisfy their needs -- and they are getting special concessions in schools and in business even in violation of our laws.

Why you ask? Well I believe it's because people are trying to appease Muslims all with the hope that they will blend in. Of course, I aslo believe that Muslims are being appeased because there are some people who will always be cowards -- and will always refuse to face the threat of Islam head on. 

And yes, that's just the way I see it.
