A recent trip to New York City was eye opening in more ways than one.
Walking the streets of Manhattan I ran smack into a gay rights parade. The images that assaulted me were mind-numbing: a group of near-naked gay men with bulging muscles and shaved chests walked by chanting gay rights slogans. Two lesbians, one wearing a tutu and the other in top hat and tails, kiss for the cameras while fondling each other’s breasts. Two men dressed as priests embrace and kiss, holding signs that declare, “I do!” There were hundreds of gays in drag, showing off tattoos, piercings, most of them shirtless, some wearing nothing but loincloths to cover their genitals, bewigged, covered in spangles, feathers, exaggerated and grotesque makeup, bumping, grinding and exhibiting in-your-face displays of perverse sexuality.
What a display of utter depravity and hedonism!
Lingering along the edges of the street, forcing themselves into the camera’s lenses and proudly engaging with the irreverent New York society that they so publicly disdain, were Muslims in plain dress and head coverings. They were the polar opposites of the gaudy, bawdy homosexuals parading through the streets.
Despite appearances, I realized that the goal of both groups is the same: Both are declaring to the world: “We’re here, we’re not going away. We’re a part of America … get used to it!
“And, by the way, if you don’t like it … you’re violating my civil rights!”
Presenting themselves to the world as different, with two jarring yet equally out-of-the-mainstream physical appearances, they are confronting other Americans to make a choice: Accept us or pay a price for your rejection.
Well, frankly, I don’t like it and I reject it. As a Christian, I don’t like sexual street theater or gender-bending spectacles being forced down my throat. And on the other end, I don’t like Islamists forcing American society to cater to their religious practices. And I especially don’t like being called bigoted, homophobic, Islamophobic and a “hater” because I don’t like any of this. What about my rights to be offended?
I don’t like seeing American society ripped apart by special interests. Even worse, these special interests at opposite ends of the spectrum are all using the same Saul Alinsky playbook to weave their beliefs into our national fabric to such an extent that they are becoming enshrined in law. After all, that was Alinsky’s plan.
If you’re not familiar with Saul Alinksy, he was the left-wing activist born in the early 1900s who became the idol of President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their ilk. His idea for achieving “social justice” was to “generate conflict to mobilize the dispossessed.” He was an agitator and organizer whose tactics often led to surrender by officials or businesses to his demands. He used deceit, deception, empty threats and scare tactics to win concessions for the “dispossessed.” His goal was insinuate himself into the current political order in order to “direct federal funds into their own organizations and causes.”
Alinsky actually wrote the playbook in 1972, titling it “Rules for Radicals.” In it he urged agitators to get into bed with anyone to further their ends. The book was even dedicated to Lucifer, “the very first radical,” who “rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom.”
Alinsky wrote: “In war the end justifies almost any means … The practical revolutionary will understand (that) in action, one does not always enjoy the luxury of a decision that is consistent both with one’s individual conscience and the good of mankind.”
Nothing could be more consistent with the Islamic practice of “taquiyya” than Alinsky’s dictum. Taquiyya is the practice of lying to the infidel (all non-Muslims), with Allah’s approval, in order to further the goals of Islam. And those goals are to convert everyone to Islam and re-instate the caliphate (global Islamic state). Yes, it sounds crazy, but they believe it and are striving to achieve it through jihad, and that’s what matters in this debate.
Look at the success of the gay rights movement. They crawled into bed (figuratively and literally) with nearly every group on the spectrum. They have joined hands with tea partyers, Islamists, mainstream Republicans, rednecks, clergymen, Hispanics, the military, and the list goes on. In the end, they won a major Supreme Court victory in June that effectively granted them gay marriage rights in California, and will probably snowball into gay marriage initiatives in every state. It’s only a matter of time.
Muslims, too, have joined hands with their bitter enemies, including Christians and Jews, to fool the world into believing they are ecumenical. They, too, have joined forces with non-Muslims to fight “intolerance,” forming numerous interfaith organizations that are nothing more than smokescreens to a fawning media and ignorant public.
Employing what is known as “legal jihad,” Islamic groups encourage their members to integrate into American institutions. They join our military, teach in our schools, patrol in our police squads, work in our companies, and serve in our government. Then they sue us. They sue for their civil rights, claiming hate crimes or civil rights violations if they cannot achieve special accommodations for their practices. But it’s not enough for either group just to receive these accommodations. We must agree with them; we must say their bad behavior is good behavior.
Even though the statistics don’t bear it out, both Muslims and gays continually assert that they face rising discrimination in schools, workplaces and in communities across America. In fact, the FBI reports that crimes against minorities, Jews in particular, still comprise most hate crimes. Yet the fiction persists, aided by, again, a mindless liberal media and leftists in public office who see civil rights violations behind nearly every rock and tree—unless a Christian is involved, of course.
When Congressman Peter King, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, held hearings in which he correctly stated that Muslims are susceptible to anti-American extremism, Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin stated:
“Such inflammatory speech from prominent public figures creates a fertile climate for discrimination. It’s wrong to blame an entire community for the wrongdoing of a few. Guilt by association is not the American way.”
Of course, Rep. King never blamed all Muslims for the crimes of a few, but Durbin and others like him helped link any concern over Islam’s extremist teachings with right-wing extremism. They very deftly say that if you call us extremists, you’re an extremist. The illogic of it actually resonates with a consuming public that is not very discriminating.
The bottom line is that the Saul Alinsky playbook really works. Obama puts it into practice every day, demonizing his enemies and relentlessly pressing his agenda until it becomes part of the American landscape. The radical Islamic agenda, like the gay agenda, has found its way into every institution in America—our schools, our government, our community groups, even our churches.
Well done, Lucifer. Collect your royalties.
