Jay Bennish: Flower Child or Neo-Nazi?

Once upon a time there was a little boy who grew up to be sooooooo smart he could teach geography to 15 year olds.

Pretty Boy Jay BennishHis mama and daddy were very, very proud of their baby boy. He was pretty and smart and had a nice hair-do.

His mama and daddy alway told him his was soooo much smarter than everybody else. They also told him he was a lot prettier.

He believed them.

When this little baby boy grew up he went to the Land of Oz, safely tucked away, surrounded by people who thought he was very, very smart, pretty and had a nice hair-do.

Then one day and very mean and nasty 15 year old boy did a terrible thing to our little baby boy. The mean and nasty 15 year old boy taped a mean-spirited, nasty, propaganda-ridden, indoctrinating speech our little baby boy ranted to his geography class.

Since our little baby boy, Jay, had made sure he lived in his bubble with like-minded people, he thought he was safe to indoctrinate his pupils.

The mean, nasty and obviously hate-filled 15 year old burst his bubble.

Poor Jay. He cried and cried and cried.

His mama and daddy said, 'Don't cry Jay, you are still prettier and smarter than annyboodddy else and you still have a nice hair-do.'

Sniffle, sniffle.

Jay went to a lawyer who said, 'Jay, you are smart and pretty, but you're going to have to cut off your hair because the The Scrub doesn't allow Freedom of Speech and he'll do something bad to you if you look like a flower child.'

AAHHHHH, whine, whine, Sniffle, sniffle.

So Jay shaved his head and went on T.V. and talked and talked and gave speech and speechNeo-Nazi Jay Bennish and told everybody how he was being denied Freedom of Speech.

He said The Scrub wasn't letting him express himself because The Scrub is a dictator and would do bad things to him if he talked to anybody about The Scrub.

He talked to everybody and told them The Scrub wasn't letting him talk.

Then he got his job back and swaggered and smiled and joked about how mean that little 15 year old student was to expect him to be accountable for what he said. That's just flat-out wrong, he said. 'I demand Freedom of Speech', he cried.

He was so mistreated. It was shocking.

So he went back to school and the mean, nasty little 15 year old boy has to go to another school because that school won't allow him to express how he feels about our little baby boy expressing how he feels. And it serves him right!

Little Jay now feels he's been proven right. He has shown that Freedom of Speech is at risk in this country. The Dictatorship of The Scrub Administration has .... has .... well, they did something to hurt him, I'm sure of it.

So Little Jay went back to teaching brain-washing techniques in geography class for 15 year olds at his little school in the hills infested with the off-spring of the 60's hippies.

His mama and daddy are so relieved. He won't have to get out of his bubble never ever again. He is safe in those hills. They hope the real world will never, ever come after him again.

The moral of the story is that Jay Bennish is the poster child for why The United States of America should have mandatory (compulsory) military (National) service.

The Military could have made a man out of him. They also would have given him his new haircut and not charged him a dime for it.

On Whose Side Were You When It Mattered?

Agora refers tonight to an article in Jyllands-Posten, March 9, 2006.

Feature Article

Now is when History is Written

By Lars Hedegaard, Historian and Journalist, Copenhagen

The intransigence of the continuing Muhammed-debate shows that the combatants are painfully aware of what’s at stake. Posterity will ask a simple question: “On whose side were you when it mattered?” Says today’s feature writer.

Shortly after the travelling Imams had been to the Middle-East to spread lies about the country that had received them, it was said that the case of the Muhammed-cartons would enter Danish press history.

When news of demonstrations, boycotts, flag-burnings and embassy torchings started to dominate the media, most agreed that September 30th - the day Jyllands-Posten published the famous cartoons - would enter Danish history as the start of the most serious international crisis since the occupation [ED: of Denmark by Germany]. And following the last days’ undiminished international press interest and the involvement of several of the world’s foremost organisations and players, it is probably reasonable to conclude that “The Battle of Khartoon” - as witty foreign commentators have taken to calling it - has taken on the shape of an event in world history.

After the cartoons, the world will never be as it was. The same was true of the Rushdie-affair which exploded in 1989, but the Muhammed-affair will leave yet deeper marks.

Many wish for a return to normalcy - and others are busy finding the guilty, someone to blame for how badly things went. Even a rather sleepy politician such as Bendt Bendtsen has suddenly emerged from hibernation and concluded that it would probably be wise to investigate the residence permits of certain Imams. That is so novel, especially since the Danish People’s Party has long ago suggested the same thing and were then met only by yawns from the Government coalition.

But this unheard-of activism shows exactly how massive an event we are facing. Historical events are things politicans and persons involved with culture, the press, opinion formation and organisations have to relate to. If for no other reason, then for reasons of history. If you’re seen to be sitting on the fence while the world burns about your cradle, that is seen as a statement too. So it was seen by posterity as a statement that many Danish politicians and pillars of the community during the first years of the occupation hid behind their doors and hoped for the storm to pass.

Speaking of which, the parallel to the time of the occupation becomes still more striking. The enemy has yet to have troops in-country - not many at least - but when all the fuss and the increasingly embarrasing excuses are weeded out - things the establishment excells at - the matter is very simple: Foreign powers and their local agents are trying to yoke a liberty which most of Denmark takes for granted - the right to speak freely, answerable only to the courts.

All the talk the appeasers have put up about showing restraint to sensitive religious people, seems to have run off the populace as water off a goose — if the latest polls are to be believed.

There are several reasons for this:

Firstly, many have wondered that only the most loud-mouthed of the Moslems have the right to not be mocked and ridiculed. There’s certainly no such right for any other part of the populace.

Secondly, the violent methods of the Moslem activists have made it clear to anyone with eyes to see with and the will to do so, that it is not the merits of the arguments that have made so many Danish appeasers accept limits on Freedom of Speech, no, it is threats and violence.

The calls on the public from former foreign secretaries, the have-been ex-ambassadors, the appeasing bishops, the writers and others have an eerie reminescense of King Christian X’s proclamation after the occupation of April 9, 1940 “During these for our country so troubled times, I urge all the people of Denmark to be fully correct and diginified in their behaviour, since any uncautious act or utterance may have the most severe repercussions.”

Are not these the same words we hear today - demands to not make uncautios utterances - not because they are unlawful, but because foreign lords will not tolerate them? And these demands are made at a time where the Moslem part of the population is still only somewhere between 4 and 5 percent. How much freedom will be left, I wonder, in 10, 15 or 20 years? The sheer horror of a life of serfdom has begun to spread amongst the people and this is where we see the explanation for the massive displacements of voters we have seen the last few weeks.

While most politicians of the opposition have been busy with: meetings the Prime Minister should have accepted, semantic discussions of single words of a document, the sales of Arla in the Arab world, interpretations of the real intentions of Kofi Annan and so on, the people of Denmark have asked themselves another more basic question: Who is on our side when it comes to defending Danes against bondage and serfdom to foreign powers?

It may seem primitive and old-fashioned to the relativists and globalisation-hippies who basically think that there is nothing here to defend, that it is all about opening up this country to foreign influence to the greatest extent. Nevertheless, that is what the People thinks and the opinion of the People is a bitch in a democracy.

That is why it has become so important to understand who are the sheep and who the goats. Because this is where the waters part and your actions in this situation will follow you for the rest of your life and in history books thereafter. Many of the most educated combattants know this very well.

That is why this conflict has become so intransigent. You have to win because the winner is the one who writes history. That is why the articles in Politiken are becoming still more desperate and that is why the politicians are now delivering statements so clear that they cannot be misunderstood.

History vil show not a sliver of sympathy to the half-hearted, who with reservations, buts, and woolly mouths have been evading the issue. It will ask the same questions of today’s players as it did of the British political establishment when it was faced with the challenge of Nazism in the 1930s: Who failed when it mattered? Who stood up for democracy and Freedom and who called for appeasement, dialogue and sweet understanding for the dictators?

Having lost the battle for popular support in Denmark, the defeated try to threaten the People into submission with references to the wrath of foreign lords. They say Denmark’s reputation at large has suffered irreperable damage, that we are scoffed at, that we are despised for not accomodating our society to the forces that have destroyed all hope for a better future for the Middle East and have condemned the region to permanent underdevelopment.

Some of these foreign-fixated opinion-formers are apparently truly distressed at Denmark’s choice and their public statements have the mark of desperation on them.

That is probably the case for former foreign minister Uffe Elleman-Jensen who in a column printed in the Pakistani newspaper New Times of Lahore on February 19, having referred to the “Prophet Muhammed” (capital P for the prophet), adds “peace be upon him”.

But perhaps it is the editor who wrote that without consulting Ellemann? Perhaps it is also the editor of the New Times who spoke of the “Holy Koran” (capital H for holy)?

If that is the case, the shrewd old journalist Uffe Ellemann-Jensen has shown considerable negligence to leave his manuscript in the hands of a newspaper that allows such editorial discretion.

Another interpretation could be that he is placating and kow-towing to the powerholders of a country where little girls are decapitated for not wearing a Moslem scarf.

The rest of us have to feel comforted by the fact that the Muhammed-affair has shown that Denmark has many more friends and admirers than we have ever dreamed of: Mario Vargas Llosa, Lee Harris, Mark Steyn, Christopher Hitchens, Bruce Bawer. Pavel Kohout, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Bat Ye’or, André Glucksmann, Ibn Warraq, Salman Rushdie, Taslima Nasreen and many more.

It is appalling that there is even a question as to where the popular support lies. But there is.

If we are dependant on the MSM to tell us how the American people feel, think or believe, it would seem we were all ready to pull burkas over our heads and start practicing saying 'peace be upon him' everytime we say the word muhammad.

I heard a woman arguing on TV a while ago. I can't even tell you what she was saying, except that she was talking over everyone else and repeating herself seemingly in an effort to shut the others up. Her desperation was obvious (as in the article above). She was calling another commentator a bigot for expressing concern over the concepts of appeasement.

Listening to this woman, I couldn't help but think that if she gets what she is asking for, she won't be able to talk like that. She will be under a veil and won't be allowed to express her thoughts at all and certainly not on television.

I heard another news commentator the other day ranting about how unnecessary it is to upset the muslim world so badly and we should all just stop talking about the muhammad cartoons and the riots and let things settle back down. He had that tone of desperation in his voice as well. He actually said, 'peace be upon him' when he said muhammad. He looked and sounded uncomfortable when he said it. At first I thought he was joking. But then I realized, he was trying to show respect for the muslims and seemed to think he should say that.

Is that what we've come to? Is that where we want to go?

Are our eyes open or do we want things to get back to normal and just hope this all goes away.

I know the American people are courageous, generous, patriotic and honorable as a general rule. But most are not even aware of the danger that is insidiously creeping towards us.

When a news commentator will uncomforably say 'peace be upon him' in a show, how long will it be before that doesn't sound so strange to our ears? Will we get accustomed to hearing that? Will we gradually just accept it?

Either we open our eyes now, or we will see the danger later when it will be a much larger and more powerful force to deal with. If we wait until we can't ignore it anymore, we will pay a much higher cost in our defense.

I know on whose side I am. On whose side are you?

Emphasis in article are mine.

Sammenhold Rally in San Francisco


Via Michelle Malkin:

San Francisco Rally to Support Denmark and Free Speech

San Francisco, CA –– Worldwide protests, riots, boycotts, and threats aimed at Denmark and its citizens have taken place ever since the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten printed cartoons featuring the Islamic prophet Muhammed. In response to this unprecedented assault on the right to free speech, rallies supporting Denmark have occurred in New York, Washington, D.C., and Madrid. Others are planned for Chicago, London, Toronto, Montreal, and Sydney.

The Only Republican in San Francisco writes about the rally. The California Conservative writes about the rally here and here.

Cinnamin Sillwell organized the rally.

Unfortunately, I think most people in America have no clue about what is going on in Denmark. Unless you read the blogs and get your news through unconventional methods, you don't know there is a stand-off between Islam and the Western world over Freedom of Speech and submission to Islam.

The riots were just a passing crawl across the bottom of the TV screen if you happened to be watching one of the cable news stations. Maybe.

Hopefully, what The Gentle Cricket calls a 'small but supportive crowd' will grow as word gets out and people become more aware of the dangers and demands of Islam.

But then. Leave it to the Vikings to be the ones to draw a line in the .... snow, if you will.

Blogging Advice

There's some good advice on blogging around tonight. Actually, it was there last night, but I didn't see it till tonight.

Samantha Burns has carved out the 10 Commandments of Blogging. Since I've broken most of these commandments already, I figure I will try to commit it to memory. Or maybe I won't. But I will try to be good.

Then over at Third World County, David expands on the commandments - the not quite commandments. I've broken most of his get-a-clue commandments as well. He has chastised me a time or two over #6. And while I don't need to grow more hair, I'm a little disappointed that I won't change the world.

Samantha points to Larry Hnetka Goes HMmmm who has a hilarious take on Samantha's commandments.

So have fun blogging and I'll keep trying to get a clue :)

My son sent this photo of him in the field. He has not been where I could talk with him for about a month, so I was very happy to see his email last night. The email was typical of him, brief and to the point. Hi mom, here's a picture of me. That's it. See how he shares his intermost feelings? (rolling-eyes)

But, I loved it anyway.

Isn't he cute???? lol

What's Everybody Talking About?

I have been very preoccupied trying to get a new domain set up and have royally messed it up. I thought I was really smart last night when I played with a new program and thought I had uploaded a template. I set the settings and went to bed.

I didn't realize till I came home from work this evening that I had messed it up completely. I had messed it up so badly the whole thing was unaccessible. I had generous offers of help from Jo at Jo's Cafe and Pirate's Cove. Uncooperative Blogger emailed me about the time I realized the site wasn't there at all this evening and told me the site was messed up. Sigh!

It was so messed up he eventually just said DELETE and re-install. Which I did and am now trying not to mess it up again!

So that's how I've spent my evening. It's how I'll probably spend the next few evenings....

So while I'm stomping and snorting and whinning and carrying-on how about an evening trackback party.....
