Islamic Work Accident At Georgia Tech: It’s Not Just In The Middle East Anymore

Hat tip to lobo91:

Sometimes, coincidence is a mean mother f%$#%r. Yesterday was one of those times. Yesterday you see, one of the points made during my rant on what really needs to be reformed with our immigration system was illustrated perfectly at Georgia Tech University. For at that institution of higher learning you see, we experienced an Islamic Work Accident. The uninitiated among you may need to have this term defined, so be it.

Islamic Work Accident – an explosion by which a Muslim blows himself up during the construction of a bomb which is meant for usage against infidels, (non-Muslims.) This worries me because I am an Infidel. My guess is that many of you who are reading this are also Infidels.

Now, during these dark and dangerous times of political correctness trumping critical thought and perfunctory observation, we once again have seen either a terrorist attack or a thwarted terrorist attack within our borders that will be summarily ignored because of its heavy handed obviousness. This means that we had a member of the Muslim community do what they do best, which is to conduct themselves in a psychotic and antisocial manner. For those of you who insist upon defining terrorism in a politically correct manner, please note that the fine gentleman in question was not a, “Right Wing Extremist,” was not Amish, was not an Evangelical Christian protesting abortion, was not a member of the boy scouts, mickey mouse club, or the Tea Party Patriots. He was a devout adherent to the Religion of Peace, peacefully assembling a bomb in his apartment for use in God knows what mischievous plot.

He was something more than that however. He was a PHD candidate at Georgia Tech, here in this country on a Student Visa. Our current immigration system you see grants people from his nation and religion preferred status in terms of immigration and citizenship acceptance. Not only that, but he actually hails from a nation which at the time of his entrance into our country, was supposedly on our watch list of worldwide trouble spots and further, had not even enjoyed formal diplomatic relationship status with us. Among the sanctions ongoing meant to discourage Iran’s march towards obtaining a nuclear weapon, its membership in good standing with the Axis of Evil, and her continuing status as an enemy since the days of the 1980 Hostage Crisis, we still found it advantageous to accept any and all immigrants not only with open arms, but without any sort of vetting process as all. All of this because of the politically correct mindset which dictates that we search 90 year old wheel chair bound grandmothers at airport security checkpoints rather than the guys chanting Allah hu Akbar.

In all of the hand wringing debate and contention over our immigration policy, it worries me to no end that the discussion over who we let into our fold is not even casually addressed. All immigrants are not equal, just as all foreign societies are not equal. As I stated the other day, some immigrate here because they wish to become one of us and wish to share in the American Dream. We should allow as many of those immigrants to move here as wish to. some immigrants wish to move here so that they can harm us from within our own shores. We need to cut that group off permanently. Currently, our immigration policy is legally designed to accomplish the exact opposite.

    At the other end of the scale we have this arsehole jurist and academic.

    Richard John Neuhaus (1936-2009)
    …Neuhaus, in addition to founding the IRPL, also served as editor-in-chief of the institute’s journal First Things, was an adjunct scholar at AEI, and served on the boards of several neoconservative-aligned organizations, including the EPPC and the Institute on Religion and Democracy . Neuhaus, who became a Roman Catholic priest in 1991 after having previously been a Lutheran minister, was also a director of the rightist World Youth Alliance, which promotes a “culture of life” at the United Nations, among other activities.

    In his columns for the First Things magazine and website, Neuhaus regularly discussed issues ranging from theological disputes between Protestants and Catholics and the impact of progressive ideologies on youths, to the application of just-war concepts in foreign policy and the politics of abortion and “freedom to die” proponents. In a September 2006 column, for example, Neuhaus warned against those who seek to “moderate” Islam, pointing to what he called the tremendous influence of violent jihad over many of the faith’s adherents. He wrote, “To purify Islam by ridding it of the current rulers who are declared to be apostates and no better than infidels, to compel the submission of the Christian West (meaning mainly America), and to achieve eternal bliss by sacrificing one’s life (if necessary, in suicide attacks)—these are the driving motivations behind Jihadism. Such is the appeal, not to the poor and disenfranchised of the ‘Arab street’ but to the brightest and best of the relatively well-educated and well-off of young Muslims, both at home and abroad, who are seething with resentment over centuries of what they view as humiliation by the West and are bent upon vengeance to the glory of God.” (6)

    Instead of trying to moderate radical Islamists, wrote Neuhaus, the United States must develop a new containment strategy, one modeled on that designed by George Kennan after the end of World War II. Neuhaus wrote, “After September 11, First Things worried editorially about the meaning of an open-ended conflict and the applicability of just-war doctrine when it may be impossible to specify the meaning of victory. That is a continuing worry. Perhaps it is forever, or at least as far as we can see into the future, and the best we can hope for is containment of the threat. To clear our minds of cant and prepare for the future, we need a new but very different ‘Letter X’ such as that written by George Kennan in 1947, preparing us for the long contest with the Soviet Union.” (7)

    Neuhaus’ life followed a very well trod path of a self confessed elitist, leftist jurist, collecting the baubles of power along the way, to bolster his political punch and to maintain his status as one of the self appointed elite. He began, as did many post WWII academics, as an anti-Semitic leftist seeking the primacy of the socialist ‘new-man’ and a reactionary knee jerk, against the emergent victorious US.

    He was the willing child of the proclaimed socialist ‘march through the institutions’ that would overthrow the west, and ended up one of the mavens of that evil infiltration of the academy. Blending his progressive religious fervour with his elitist narcissism energised him to further oppose the tenets of the democratic West, again focused primarily on the US and its many proxy wars against Soviet style totalitarian leftism.

    Like many of the more intelligently perceptive leftist radicals of the 1060-70s, Neuhause saw early on in the 1980s that the Soviet ‘experiment’ was failing and moved his ground to gain ‘cover’ amongst his former neo-Marxist bedfellows within the emergent neo-conservative movement. In a master stroke these self serving progressive narcissists, he moved from revolutionary neo-Marxism straight to corporatist crony capitalism that aligned with an increasingly authoritarian State. The perfect modern prototype neo-Fascist home for upwardly mobile former neo-Marxist. These NeoCons with a taste of both the good life and a hunger for the power a Corporate –Statist regime would bring. That usual marriage of Statist fascism and crony capitalism, that enriches whilst pandering to their narcissistic need to be empowered as the self appointed elite.

    Ever one to move with the strength, or in Neuhaus’ experience, to always move away from a failing belief system, in this case the post-modern Lutherans, Neuhaus changed religious horses. Again he reinvented himself as a later day Catholic radical priest, this time throwing in his hand with the arch neo-Cons of the Bush family, degenerate occultist ‘Skull & Bones’ members all, and best mates with the fascist House of Saud, the arch Sunni, Wahabbist, branch of Islam. Ever one to maintain cover whilst maximising his personal powerbase, Neuhaus began his alignment and outreach across the soft ‘wafty’ edges of post-modern Catholicism and apologist Islam. Fortunately we were spared further dalliances of Neuhaus, into his warped thirst for elitist power, his self serving delusions of using evil for his own philosophical ends and his habitual narcissism, in 2009.

    @ heysoos:

    Obviously you care enough to protest you discontent not only once, but on two separate comments.

    and you’ve earned this………you asshat.

    I get that this may or may not be a subject you feel worthy of discussion, or even reading, and quite frankly I do not care. Please feel free to avail yourself of the option above asking for members to submit posts for discussion, perhaps on some subject which moves you personally. For me, it is usually economics or politics.

    The answer to your query jeezus…like, who cares? would be that I do. This is why I’ve written a post on the matter.

    @ Aussie Infidel:

    I guess ‘containment’ meant exporting a few million muslims into every non-muslim country in the world. /

    psst. The governments are in on it. I figure that the increasing monitoring and control of every human is the endgame. The muslims aim for totalitarianism, so the goals “co-exist” until Big Brother is fully implemented. A robocop won’t be able to discern the religion of a citizen.

    Unless the US/Europe/UK/Latin America/Russia are prepared to commit genocide, the only answer is containment.

    @ heysoos:

    So write something and submit it already. They’ve been begging for help for some time time now. I don’t schedule anything. I submit them and someone else determines if they are worthy, and then schedules. Put your money where you mouth is, and write. As for my being responsible for boring people, that may be true or not. What I do know for sure is that in this particular house, all you run is your mouth. You do not speak for others, any more than I do. I would never presume to superimpose my beliefs upon others. Doing something like that is the sign of a true loser.

    I wish you the best of luck in making a friend to call your very own some day.

    Speaking of the wacky misadventures of our Muslim friends, Gates of Vienna has an interesting piece about the recent unexplained fire in a Somali area of Minneapolis:

    @ Aussie Infidel:

    Very interesting about Neuhaus and his powerful connections to oil soaked power hungry Westerners and Saudis. They are able to buy everything and anybody. I can’t think of any other reason that these international elitists were able to sway the world into voting Marxists/Socialists/Fascists into power.
    There’s a term called “Corpgov” that I think describes our overlords.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark is making headlines after coming out and saying NFL players are using marijuana, including some of his teammates.

    Clark made the announcement on ESPN’s “First Take” Thursday morning.

    In the interview, Clark said he knows guys on the Steelers who “smoke.”

    He told ESPN, “A lot of it is stress relief. A lot of it is pain and medication. Guys feel like, ‘If I can do this, it keeps me away from maybe Vicodin, it keeps me away from pain prescription drugs and things that guys get addicted to.’ Guys look at this as a more natural way to heal themselves, to stress relieve and also to medicate themselves for pain. Guys are still going to do it.”

    @ coldwarrior:

    Clark’s been around for 13 or 14 years, and with multiple teams. His take on things carries weight, or should anyhow. I don’t know why, but this immediately brought Justin Strelzyk to mind, and the problems he faced with his Bi-Polar disorder that manifested itself after football. I believe it is because of an anecdotal relationship I’ve noticed twixt the two.

    When they celebrated in Patterson with a spontaneous street demonstration on 9/11 that said it all.

    As Samantha Power met two released Pussy Riot members in New York, Russia’s Vitaly Churkin wondered if the US ambassador to the UN would join the controversial punk band and suggested a tour route. The jibe did not go unnoticed.

    Power, a vocal proponent of American military interventions as a solution to human rights abuses, met Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina on Wednesday as part of their tour of the US.

    During the meeting at the US mission to the UN, Power and the two band members discussed “the disturbing trend in [Russia] of legislation, prosecutions and government actions aimed at suppressing dissent and pressuring groups that advocate for fundamental human rights and basic government accountability,” according to her deputy spokesman Kurtis Cooper.

    When asked about the meeting, Russian UN ambassador Churkin joked, “She has not joined the band?”

    “I would expect her to invite them to perform at the National Cathedral in Washington,” he said. “Maybe they could arrange a world tour for them, you know.”

    “St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome, then maybe in Mecca in Saudi Arabia, ending up with a gala concert at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. So if Ambassador Power fell short I would be disappointed,” Churkin said.

    Power responded on Twitter, saying she would be honored to join Pussy Riot and invited Churkin to join in.

    “I can’t sing, but if #PussyRiot will have me, Amb Churkin, I say our 1st concert is for Russia’s pol. prisoners. #LiveFromMatrosskayaTishina,” she tweeted in reference to one of Moscow’s oldest prisons, which is currently used as a preliminary detention center.

    of course, if the break and enter st patricks and do what they did in moscow they would get the same sentence most likely. 2 years.

    OT for Rodan. :-)

    News > Rob Ford takes permanent pass on Pride Parade
    You won’t find Rob Ford shimmying down Church St, a feather boa around his neck when Toronto hosts World Pride this June.

    “I’m not going to go to Pride parade”, Ford said Wednesday at a mayoral candidates’ forum hosted by the University of Toronto, Scarborough Students’ Union. And it seems Ford’s mind is made up for future Pride festivals too.

    “I’ve never gone to a Pride parade, so I’m not going to change the ways (sic) I am”, said Ford.

    In the past, the mayor has said a long-standing family tradition of spending the Canada Day long weekend at the cottage has kept him away from Pride. 2014′s World Pride parade falls on June 29th at the end of a colourful festival that’s expected to draw some two million people to Toronto over nine days.

    U of T students weren’t pleased to hear Ford is taking a permanent pass on Pride.

    “If you’re gonna represent Toronto, you have to represent everybody”, said Cailen English-Sufrin. “That includes going to Gay Pride, being able to say ‘I can identify with these people’, and he just doesn’t.” “How many people of Toronto did he (Ford) just wipe out and admit that he’s not gonna care about them, because they don’t align with his views”, wondered Hagar Davidov.

    Texas man will NOT be charged for fatal shooting of sheriff’s deputy who entered home with search warrant

    A Central Texas man who shot and killed a sheriff’s deputy entering his home will not be charged with capital murder, attorneys said Thursday.

    A local grand jury declined Wednesday to indict Henry Goedrich Magee for the December death of Burleson County Sgt. Adam Sowders, who was part of a group of investigators executing a search warrant for Magee’s rural home.

    Sowders and other officers entered the home about 90 miles northwest of Houston without knocking just before 6 a.m. Authorities were looking for guns and marijuana.

    Magee’s attorney, Dick DeGuerin, said his client thought he was the victim of a home invasion, reached for a gun and opened fire.

    Speaking of coincidences, Argentina’s currency has been falling quickly and the banking archives happened to catch fire:

    Nine first-responders were killed, seven others injured and two were missing as they battled a fire of unknown origin that destroyed an archive of bank documents in Argentina’s capital on Wednesday. The fire at the Iron Mountain warehouse took hours to control…

    destroyed archives included documents stored for Argentina’s banking industry, said Buenos Aires security minister Guillermo Montenegro.
    The cause of the fire wasn’t immediately clear. Boston-based Iron Mountain manages, stores and protects information for more than 156,000 companies and organizations in 36 countries. Its Argentina subsidiary advertises that its facilities have multiple protections against fire, including advanced systems that can detect and quench flames without damaging important documents.

    You know, they acquitted Randy Weaver of killing the US Marshall that shot his son. Sometimes Justice gets done. I don’t know all the facts here, but if it is as it sounds, the Grand jury did the right thing. Warrants should be announced. Just breaking into a man’s home to execute a search warrant isn’t how it is supposed to be done. Announcing that you are the police executing a warrant puts the people on notice that you aren’t a robber. As I’ve said before, if someone kicked in my front door, I wouldn’t think it was the cops. There’s no reason for the cops to be here. I’ve not done anything that they would be executing a search warrant for. It would appear that the guy here was in the same boat.

    From the Daily Caller:

    “[T]here is a very legitimate question as to whether the administration actually has the authority to change the law in this way,” Vaughan wrote in an email to TheDC. “It seems to me that they are announcing that they will be disregarding yet another law written by Congress that they don’t like and are replacing it with their own guidelines, which in this case appear to be extremely broad and vague, and which are sure to be exploited by those seeking to game our generous refugee admissions program.”
    “If the recent past is any guide, those evaluating these cases will be ordered to ignore red flags in the applications, especially if the applicant is supported by one of the many advocacy groups that have the ear of senior DHS staff,” she explained. “The administration already approves of the admission of gang members as asylees and criminals in the DACA program and grants of prosecutorial discretion, so I don’t expect them to be troubled by the admission of terrorists and garden variety fraudsters in our refugee program. This is how we end up with families like the Tsarnaev brothers [the Boston marathon bombers], who were originally admitted for political asylum.”

    @ Rodan:

    Yeah, I’ve seen several stories on this. I am not surprised that he is getting pushback from the usual sources, but he is right. Armed citizens do decrease the crime rate. It is good to see some higher up in law enforcement making that case. I’ve known a lot of cops over the years, and none of them were for gun control. I used to work out with a cop who was concerned about the concealed carry thing, worried that it would introduce firearms to situations like DUI stops. That worry turned out to be unfounded, but it was understandable. OTOH, this same guy felt that you should be able to have a machinegun in your own home if that is what you wanted. I’ve bought guns from cops, and even sold guns to cops over the years. I am pretty hard on the police because they are in such a pivotal position. They need to be held to high standards. It is for their protection as well as the public’s. I like that most law enforcement is caught on video recordings now. If the cop fucks p, it is on tape. If, OTOH, someone gets out of hand and something happens, that is on the tape. This protects both the police and the citizens.

    We’ll get another Tamerlan Tarnaev, and they will again wonder what happened when he blows something up and kills people. Tsarnaev should have been a bigger scandal for the Administration. The Russians fucking warned us about him. We did effectively nothing, preferring to cling to the “Islam is a Religion of Peace” bullshit, and take him at his word when he denied being a terrorist. They are worried that Martha Stewart might buy a pistol, but don’t care if they import Mohammedan terrorists to kill people.

    I don’t deny that. Bush had an opportunity for greatness, but he fell far short of that mark. He wanted to emote with the Enemy, to show the enemy mercy in hopes of making the enemy into friends. This is simply not something that can work with the Mohammedans. They believe that their religion grants them license to do anything, absolutely anything to subjugate or kill the “Infidel”. If you read what they say, they don’t really deny this. When 9-11 happened, we were told to go shopping, not to prepare for an existential war between civilization and barbarism. This was a mistake, and has made us more vulnerable.

    You don’t hear from them much, because they don’t tell the narrative the Press wants to tell, but there are black leaders who are adamantly opposed to gun control. One of those is Roy Innis and his son Niger, as well. They are from the Congress on Racial Equality, and tell it pretty much straight up. In its implementation in the United States gun control is almost always racist in its application. That they also violate the rights of whites doesn’t make it any less a civil rights issue.

    “If the recent past is any guide, those evaluating these cases will be ordered to ignore red flags in the applications, especially if the applicant is supported by one of the many advocacy groups that have the ear of senior DHS staff,” she explained.

    The same thing will happen if they ever do get their way on the “amnesty” nonsense. They claim that all those tens of millions of people will be subjected to “rigorous background checks,” but that’s just BS. Just the other day, the head of the ICE union said that there was no possible way that they could process that many applications.

    I wonder how many black citizens of DC have received pistol permits after the Heller decision? I’d be very interested in seeing that. I’d bet money that far fewer blacks have a license. DC has a huge black population, but I bet it is very few blacks as opposed to a substantive number of them.

    no, he’s 61 and old enough to know better. I’ve been friendlier with him than most and the only other time I ripped him was when he went after Iron Fist (who is a personal friend) with some calumny or other.

    But enough is enough. I’ve been racking my brain about what I might write so I can contribute to the blog because I know it’s a shit load of work. A lot of people here I consider my friends. When you walk into my friend’s open house party, shit on the rug and then complain about the guest list, you and I are going to play smash mouth.

    Best President in the 20th Century. Reagan won the biggest, most potentially destructive war in World History, and he did it with practically no bloodshed. In that regard, he was even better than Lincoln. Lincoln held the country together, but at a terrible price in lives. Reagan won without bloodshed, which is getting close to capturing the state intact, which is what Sun Tzu called the “Acme of skill”.

    But then I think that I’m such a nerd sometimes, people would probably find it boring and the admins would post it as a courtesy to an old woman who talks about something besides her dogs for once.

    @ 122 eaglesoars: That is a psychology. Don’t bite. People are who they are. Change occurs slowly. It is the order of nature. It only occurs quickly when you fall in love or get passionate about something or are forced onto OBamacare.

    Heysoos is ok. I think he is creating a self fulfilling prophecy there. People do that when they don’t have the right answer they are seeking. The answer is usually found in the passion. In Heysoos, he states his often, Cars, Music, Food, and Family. I’ve posted on all those at times on the blog here but usually at off hours. A time for all seasons.

    and believe it or not -- the Brits. Churchill is lionized, I know, but he had difficult choices to make about how to use what limited shipping he had. War or the Bengalis? He hated Gandhi who hated being colonized by Britain.

    I’ve seen a study of acupuncture and cocaine addiction, and acupuncture is very effective at preventing relapse. Much moreso than the hard-core twelve stepping that is the most common form of rehab in the US. I’ve never heard of it being used for treating nicotine addiction, but I’d say that it can work against that.
