We Cannot Bury Our Heads in the Sand about Ilhan Omar

We Cannot Bury Our Heads in the Sand about Ilhan Omar
By E. Jeffrey Ludwig

Rep. Ilhan Omar from Minnesota poses an interesting case study in American cultural or civilizational consciousness.  She is the first congressional representative to wear a scarf around her head, and that scarf is for some a symbol of the breadth and depth of our acceptance of others.  For others, it is a symbol of alienation and rejection of the America she claims — simply by holding office — to represent.  To those who see her this way, the hijab or head covering is seen as a hostile schmata (rag) whereby she is not merely carrying on one of her subculture's customs, but, in essence, giving the finger to the country she now would participate in governing.

To those who admire her motivation and political know-how, the headscarf adds to the attraction of her looking frail and vulnerable.  Looking frail and vulnerable, yet being a political high achiever, she seems to fit the rags-to-riches mythology of our culture.  Those who are attracted by this transition into the halls of power may not see her hijab as a mere headscarf or as a rag.  To them, this headgear is a crown dignifying her claim to power.  Is she a stinking terrorist in sheep's clothing?  Or is she just a little know-nothing from a nowhere country elected by a bizarre and backward district in Minnesota?  Or does she express the promise of America to give leadership and success to those for whom it has been blocked, sometimes, for centuries?

Omar is the real consequence of our myopic, unrealistic immigration policy. Expect more of it. Much more.

She is in the vanguard of an invasive and irreconcilable ideology, which either the Dems think they can control or which controls them. To Dems, Christians are the enemy, and the enemy of their enemy....

That may be with a number of them, but I'm thinking those fools are in for a very rude awakening.

My 'Viking Hunter' High Adventure Alternate History Series is FREE, ALL 3 volumes, at most ebook retailers including Ibooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and more.

In Vol 2 the weapons come out in a winner take all war on two fronts.

Vol 3 opens with the rigged murder trial of the villain in a Viking Court under Viking law to set the stage for the hero's own murder trial.

Fair enough.

What must be done to not only stop the advancement of islamic ideology, but to cleanse it from our midst?

What means will need to be used to achieve that end?

Is "the end" (in this case) one that will require that any and all "means" be used?

Subsidize America's pig farmers.

U.S. munitions suppliers buy the surplus.

Because there's only 3 ways to get someone else to do what You want done.

They love you. Not gonna happen.

They respect you. Not gonna happen.

They fear you.

Grease the projectiles and coffins with hog fat. What? They'll hate us even more? They might even try to kill us?

All they gotta do is what anyone Else does to dodge Any Military or Law Enforcement bullet.

Obey the Laws.

Stopping the advancement: Quit calling a political ideology or even a religion a "race"--because it isn't. It's a belief system for political governance. We don't call Communists a "race". We don't call Catholics a "race", We shouldn't afford such status to Muslims.

So, enough of the "racist" BS.

We have laws. We have a Constitution. Let's go by them, but not allow them to be violated. If the beliefs of others are so strong that they are incompatible with affording the same rights to others that they themselves desire, then they aren't going to do well here and should leave. There are plenty of other places on the globe they can practice their beliefs without conflict with our Constitution. Go there.

Deport any who reveal such traitorous intent by their actions. They have the freedom to say what they want to, but that doesn't mean there will be no consequences. If you insult me, I just might punch you in the nose.

This is our country. Don't like it? Don't like the rules? Don't unpack, just keep going.

Unfortunately, the point persists that without dialogue, without the ability to discuss what is going on without being shouted down as a racist or a xenophobe or islamophobe, the problems will only fester until they come to a head. The more that pressure builds, the more likely that violent action will be perceived as the only remedy, by both sides.

As far as the fruits of dialogue, realistically, only a Chamberlain can expect anything much to come from that. The tenets of the Muslim belief are written (a word that takes on special significance in that culture,  the equivalent of 'carved in stone' in the West), and changing so much as a syllable of the Koran is punishable by death--always  has been. There is no 'New, Improved Modern Translation': It is what it is.

That doesn't leave any wiggle room for concessions.

Well between the whitewash and the gloss coat, the media is doing all they can to ignore it, and get us to do so, too.
