There is much, much more of this madness if you care to look past what your are being fed by the mainstream media
So basically, your theory is that religious fanatics trying to set up a theocracy have allied with the hardcore supporters of an explicitly atheistic ideology that thinks religion is a drug?
Yes. It should not be that bizarre if you know any history - the officially atheist Soviet Union armed many Islamic regimes (and the supposedly Christian US is now doing the same). You see the West is too strong to be taken down by either the hard-Left or Islam alone, but they are currently in a "marriage of convenience" to achieve this. This follows the model in the UN, where the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) and leftist "Non-Aligned Nations" vote as blocs to achieve their aims. This has been going on since 1975 in the UN General Assembly, and has taken over various UN agencies like the Refugee Agency and Human Rights Council. Here's a short video describing how this works (from an Israeli perspective, since the OIC wants to destroy them, as commanded in Islamic hadith Sahih Muslim 6985):
The webzine "Front Page Mag" is run by an ex-Leftist called David Horowitz. He understands the goals of the Left, and how they make common cause with Islamists to overthrow traditional society. They think by destroying everything they can re-make society the way they want to. This "Hope and Change" is not going to be good except for a few.
The only reason you think a union of the Left and Islam is bizarre is because you have forgotten the history from only a few decades ago. Like I said, the Soviet Union was very very happy to work with Islamist regimes if it harmed the West. The same is going on today (between the Leftists/Cultural Marxists in universities and spread to governments) and the evil Islamists.
Thank you very much for doing the research Bearhouse. Many simply assume they know what the teachings of Islam are (mistaking it for Judaism or Christianity - when it most certainly is very different) and demonize me. The more research you do, the worse Islam gets as you uncover layer upon layer of lies and deliberate 'taqiyya'.
Those would would defend our liberties against Big Government and Islamism are losing the 'information war' very badly. When even above average intelligence Slashdotters don't know the facts it is worrying. Thankfully you decided to 'check your facts'. If only our politicians, journalists and military would do this.
Here are some alternative news sources for you. I'm not suggesting they are entirely correct on everything, or without their own biases, but they do raise facts that are troubling and not presented by the mainstream media (which is why people are so in the dark as to what is really going on geopolitically):
http://www.breitbart.com/ [This one is quote biased, but you get facts you don't get elsewhere about the Leftists plan to deconstruct the traditional West]
http://www.islam-watch.org/authors/139-louis-palme/1095-knowing-four-arabic-words-may-save-our-civilization-from-islamic-takeover.html "Knowing Four Arabic Words May Save Our Civilization from Islamic Takeover" [An interesting article that explains some part of why you are being lied to]
I suggest reading them for a week to get a feel for whether they are worthwhile to follow or not (don't read them exclusively though - they need to be compared to other sources too).
I also strongly suggest you check the lectures by Stephen Coughlin on Youtube, and also look up the allies of the Islamists with an excellent documentary on 'Cultural Marxism' and how it has permeated Western universities and general culture. You don't have to agree with me, but please do the research so you can see the Matrix that is constructed around us (prison bars only work when they are invisible).
Please note: "Muslims" (who are people) are not the enemies of liberty, it is "Islam" (a political ideology) that is. Just as Free People confronted and defeated National Socialism and Communist Socialism we will also have to defeat the political tyranny of religious socialism (Islam). The longer we leave it to 'get real' about Islam - which means strengthening our enforcement of 21st Century Law and Enlightenment values the harder it will get. I hope it does not come to War - but the Islamists already see the struggle between Enlightenment Civilization and Islamism in those terms.
I suggest you do the research. Beating of wives is explicitly permitted in Islam - with sticks. Do the research yourself, you will find recent rulings on this and all sorts of evil and barbarity that Islam promotes as *mainstream*.
Sex slavery is also explicitly permitted:
This is not some extremists interpretation of Islam - this is mainstream stuff as determined by Al Azhar University (the 'Vatican' of Sunni Islam). Rulings made in the last few years.
Homosexuality was once, "The love that dare not speak its name." Now it's, "The love that won't shut up."
No mod points today, otherwise this zinger would be getting +2 Double Plus Good
I have no problem with homosexuals, but I do wish they'd shut up from time to time (well, I'm sure other Slashdotters could say the same about me too
I did nothing, so thanks for the sarcasm. I merely provided links to research done by someone else (which it appears you failed to read). I would also suggest you go an look at "The Muslim Brotherhood in America"
by Frank Gaffney (who was Deputy Assistant Secretary for Defence under Reagan, and founder of the Center for Security Policy).
I also suggest you take a look at the Investigative Project on Terrorism's research about the Brotherhood penetration in the White House (which explains why the White House reacts so virulently to calls for investigation - the Obama Administration sees the MB as moderate and agrees with their aims, although the events in the Middle East have forced them to wake up to reality, instead of their deluded dreams of the MB as compatible with Western-style democracy):
So, you can be sarcastic if you want. You'd get further if you could refute the references I have provided - but I think you'll find the assertion I made about Huma Abedin is true. The reason she passed a background check is that they don't consider Muslim Brotherhood affiliation as a threat these days (which is insane, but that's the current Democratic party for you).
"His brilliant but hot wife
You do realise that Huma Abedin is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood, don't you? eg. see
Now perhaps I'm projecting things too far, but perhaps one of the factors of Huma Abedin marrying Wiener is that he is the perfect cover. Who would suspect her of being a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate when she marries a Jew? They will quickly overlook the fact that her mother, father and brother were *very* active in the Brotherhood, and she also edited a Brotherhood associated magazine for 12 years. Perhaps if the marriage is partially for cover then she wouldn't fulfil matrimonial duties, which leads Wiener to go on his insane twitter rampage. Yes, I could well and probably am wrong about this, but you have to admit it is a possibility. Yes?
Whether Abedin is a Muslim Brotherhood agent or not (although looking at the circumstantial evidence, you'll really have to have an agenda to deny it as most probably true) it is clear that she worms her way into positions of influence - first as chief aide of the incompetant Hiliary Clinton, and now urging here husband to go for control over New York. It is no crime to be ambitious, and Abedin is not alone in this. However, if you research her you will see she has been consulting to external countries while working for the State Department. Something is very, very fishy here. I don't ask you to believe me - just do a basic Google on Huma Abedin and her background.
