Lee Ellis Jan. 8, 2007
Thanks to Andrew Whitehead, Director, Anti-Council on American-Islamic Relations (ACAIR) for his quick alert and immediate follow-up regarding the editorial defending CAIR, by Ginger Rutland in the January 5 issue of the Sacramento Bee.(California). http://www.sacbee.com/110/story/103179.html. She had written, â€œAm I a terrorist? I asked myself this question after reading that U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer of California had rescinded an award she gave to Basim Elkarra, executive director of the Sacramento Valley Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations.â€
Ms. Rutland, we presume, is not a terrorist, but there seems to be combinations of "do-gooders," enablers, far-leftists, Socialists, Communists and actual terrorists who are trying to use P.R. weapons to take over this country. They love to equate our having sent Japanese citizens into containment camps during WWII with our fear of Islamic groups who, on 9/11, viciously murdered 3,000 innocent men, women and children. Some even want to close down Gitmo!
Pearl Harbor was an attack on our national military by a another nation's uniformed military force, not by thugs in civilian clothes who masqueraded as Americans or students in America.
Now, we are not, yet, being attacked by a nation, per se, but by a fanatic religious group of civilians from many different nations.
These people do not believe in winning a war by military warfare, fighting battles with armies against armies using planes and tanks. Rather they have learned from the Vietnam war that they can win any war, especially against what they describe as a superpower nation called America, by simply breaking down the resolve and morale of the citizens and their politicians.
The tried and true method by al Qaeda in the past for controlling elections has been the use of terror to frighten civilians by the murder of their children and families while they attend school, a market, a business office or simply using transportation to get there. These Islamic terrorists have also added other techniques which they learned from American Socialists: How to take over the American culture via public relations and infiltration.
Socialists have used the power of infiltration to win people over to their ideology without having to fight battles in the streets. They have successfully infiltrated our colleges, making sure that Socilaist professors would get tenure before they started the indoctrination of our youth. They especially wanted trained journalists to be able to work their way, and ideology, into our media.
Continued infiltration was also used for some of our churches and our political parties. Many believe that this is what happened to the old Democrat party. True Democrats who did so much for America have slowly lost their power. Gone are the Scoop Jacksons, Zell Millers and so many other great Senators who supported and believed in the defense of our culture. Joe Lieberman is one of the few top Democrats who has been able to maintain power, but he had to do it as an Independent when his fellow Democrats tried to push him out of Congress in the last election.
Infiltration has accomplished the following:
Lowered the standards of education, behavior, discipline and attire in all schools from grammar to college. Given much control of Congress to what David Horowitz and Richard Poe refer to as â€œThe Shadow Partyâ€ --- a combination of far leftists --- with perhaps a complete take-over in 2008.
Allowed our federal court system, especially the Supreme Court, to become more legislative than judicial. Professor-Emeritus Henry Mark Holzer, a constitutional attorney and editor of Supreme Court Watch writes that he has seen a strong effort over the years to change the original intent of the Constitution as prepared by our founding fathers to a â€œLiving Constitutionâ€ which would then reflect the views of current leaders rather than those of our founders. This could be a dangerous anti-democratic trend with the ability to destroy this Republic known as America.
Created a plan to drive out the Judeo-Christian faith and its value system upon which our American Constitution was based. Morality, gentility and civility are now regarded by many as not â€œcool.â€
Turned much of our media into a liberal propaganda machine. Bill Oâ€™Reilly details much of this in his book, â€œCultural Warrior.â€ In his current newspaper column, Bill writes, â€œâ€¦the rise of ideological popular culture is beginning to influence the debate. Entertainers like Jon Stewart, David Letterman, and Stephen Colbert have become purveyors of information for many young Americans. Also, the pronounced left-wing media "group think" inhibits dissenting points of view. â€¦ Almost every major pop culture magazine tilts left. The network news broadcasts tilt left. Hollywood is a bastion of far-left thought. The teacher's unions are far-left. The nation's universities are dominated by liberal, activist instructors.â€
Mr. Oâ€™Reilly is right on target with this. We are now seeing Islamic movements in this same direction.
In Harrisonburg, Virginia, WHVS-TV reports that the Spotswood High School students are researching the Muslim culture and finding out how much no one really knows about this culture that is sometimes is negatively stereotyped by the public. That's what Casey Morris hopes to eliminate through his research project, the stereotypes the public has about Muslims. Not only will he and other students learn about the culture by wearing traditional Muslim clothing and praying five times a day, but "Also going without pork for 30 days, that's going to be rough but we'll make do," said Morris.
Keith Ellison (Hakim-Mohammed) of Minnesota, the first Muslim congressman in U.S. history, has been linked to Islamic organizations with questionable agendas, insisted on using the Quran for his swearing-in ceremony, and even allowed his supporters to shout "Allahu Akbar!" at a victory rally, it was reported.
Is this the beginning of a PR and infiltration plan to win over public support as have the Socialists done so capably? No wonder, some Americans are echoing the call for us all to wake up soon. ### Lee Ellis is a retired journalist and narrator, formerly with both CBS and Gannett (USA Weekend).
