[Author’s Note: I am sending this out as a reminder of what America still faces today.)
Many of my community’s fine patriots, many of them U.S. Armed Forces Veterans, were all protesting against the building of a 52,000 sq. ft. mosques in Murfreesboro, TN, in 2009, and Muslim appeasers and apologists, who were ignorant of the machinations of the ideology of Islam, such as Eric Allen Bell came in from California and attacked us as bigots and racists. He came with a TV camera and later sold his footage to CNN. And his rabble- rousing, misrepresentations of fact and outright lies did more harm to our cause than I can fully explain, since he had ties to Leftist propaganda media, like CNN, and he used them.
Needless to say, for a litany of other reasons and many other factors too, like the Obama administration Department of Justice interceding in the matter on the side of Islam and Murfreesboro’s Muslims, the mosque was built; and, now we have an abundance of Muslims in the area, with known ties to known terrorists, which I myself, along with other investigative journalists such as Steve Emerson have proven, since we started proving it, as soon as We knew who the sponsors of this mosque were.
Supposedly, after all was said and done, Bell went back to California and during a conversation with a Coptic Christian who had experienced the evil of Islam first hand, Bell came to see the truth of Islam. But this rings hollow and FALSE in my ears, because we were all armed with the truth, documentation and verified and authenticated photographs that we showed Bell at the time, and still, he attacked us and aided the commies and Muslim apologists who entered our community from across the country and worked night and day against Us.
Bell is also an atheist and he regularly trashes Christianity in his numerous articles.
After our battle in Murfreesboro, Bell sold his footage to CNN which used it in a documentary, ‘Unwelcome: Muslims Next Door’, [I can be seen at the 13 second, 7:57 and 8:05 marks saying “I didn’t say to hate them… I just said we didn’t need them here” put out by Soledad O’Brien.]
He profited from his own lies and the lies he perpetuated against our community, since our stance was never anti-Arab and we understood that many Arabs were also Chaldean, Coptic and Assyrian Christians and Yazidis; our stance was always that Islam is an evil and violent ideology, not “a religion of peace”, and it should not be allowed to grow and spread in America.
Essentially, our opposition was continually and consistently silenced and pushed out of any public forum from inside the government, due to the undue sympathetic coverage from Gannett Press, The Tennessean and The Daily News Journal, although Fox News did try to give a somewhat “fair and balanced” view [ http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/06/30/tennessee-businesses-face-backlash-banning-conservative-paper-hate-rhetoric.html ] of our fight. On the flip side, disingenuous statements by Muslims such as Lema Sbenaty and representatives of the Council on Islamic relations were given wide and constant coverage and presented as virtually the gospel facts, even when rife with lies.
This very same tactic is being utilized today in regards to each and every important topic of the day that is split along Conservative — often Christian — American Patriot vs Communist “Progressive” Democrat lines, from the weaponization of the FBI and intelligence agencies in the attempt to take down a president to the continuation of blocking any effort to halt Muslim immigration, as seen in the activist Court’s rulings even against common sense national security travel measures; and groups like the fascist ANTIFA are held up by the media as “anti-fascists” and “warriors for justice”. Try speaking out in Your community at any City Council or Town Hall meeting or getting any ‘Letter to the Editor’ published and just watch how quickly the “progressive” illiberal “liberals” move to squash and silence anything You say or write; the proof is unfolding even on our university campuses as Antifa, BLM, LaRaza and many others act violently against anything and anyone who attempt to counter their false victimhood narratives and their demands for what they mistakenly call “justice”.
The Leftists of America wouldn’t recognize Justice if it bit them square on the ass.
Do Not Sit Down. Do Not Shut Up In The Face Of Any Adversity.
Stand Up. Speak Out And Stand Firm. Keep Fighting the Good Fight And Keep The Faith.

The Truth Will Set You Free
No apologies should ever be made for hating something, because certain people, activities and ideologies have full well earned any hatred directed towards them. The term “hate-speech” is the Progressive Democrats’/Communists’ catch-phrase assault on the Truth, when the Truth exposes one of their nefarious agendas or allies. And I hate with a passion, and I love with a passion, as is my God-given right to think as I believe and feel about issues as I choose. It is a part of all human psyche to hate and to love, as well as to experience anger and joy. No thought police will ever keep me from speaking my mind through their own hypocrisy in the use of the term “hate-speech”!
This definition is from ‘Websters New Collegiate Dictionary’ (1977): hate 1a: intense hostility and aversion usually from fear, anger or a sense of injury 2a: extreme dislike or antipathy. I fear very little, so my hatred stems from anger, a sense of injury and an extreme dislike. The poet Maya Angelou shouts: “Be angry. It is right to be angry. It is healthy.”
Do I hate?…Damn straight I hate! Psalms 97:10: You who love the Lord hate evil!
I hate the small-minded miniature Joe Stalins who are stealing ‘The Rutherford Reader’ from its racks, in order to prevent it from reaching the community, and I hate those others trying to persuade business owners to boycott it, because they do not like or agree with some of the opinion columns. These people exemplify the liberals’ hypocrisy, because they are not interested in arriving at solutions through debate and free-flowing information, a free society or even a democratic society; they are of the same ilk as know-nothing Sen. John Kerry who recently suggested to MSNBC that the media should not report the “absurdities” from the Tea Party, even though the majority of Americans currently support Tea Party initiatives. These thieves and liars are symptomatic of a Leftist mindset that seeks to censor and completely squash conservative and Christian speech through intellectual terrorism.
I loathe those Muslims and Muslim sympathizers who advocate the spread of Sharia Law across the entire U.S., such as Dalia Mogahed (Advisor to the Pres.) and Harold Koh (Head of Legal Counsel-U.S. State Dept.). Sharia Law is evil; Islam is not a religion, because it has little to do with God and primarily promotes Mohammed’s doctrines and policies. Psalms 119:104: I gain understanding from Your precepts; therefore I hate every false way.
Eric Bell, Anthony Mijares and Rick Bennett cannot cogently debate any topic truthfully, and they often omit and misrepresent the facts. Bell has accused Mr. Pete Doughtie (‘Reader’ editor/owner) of endangering Mijares by calling him a “terrorist”; Mijares was actually referred to as an “economic terrorist” due to his boycott efforts directed at ‘The Rutherford Reader’. These misinformed, misguided “citizens” use a certain verbal nimbleness rather than actual evidence and logic in their assertions. They use this talent to hide from the reality of many impending crises rapidly descending upon the U.S., and they would not recognize the Truth if it was sitting in their laps! Romans 8:35: Who can separate us from the love of Christ (or keep us from loving America)…can affliction or anguish…persecution…or nakedness or danger or sword? Because of the Progressive Communists, the Muslim sympathizers and these men are we simply to await slaughter by the Islamic fascists entering America daily?
Due to the Obama Administration’s refusal to name Islam and its Sharia Law doctrines as an ideology diametrically opposed to the U.S. Constitution and an enemy to America and freedom, and its further refusal to profile, Muslims live in the heart of America, for the most part and until just the past few years, without having their differences questioned, without checking their bad intentions, and without being penalized for their sullen fanaticism. When pointing out the fascism inherent in Islam to those like Bell, Mijares and Bennett, they are like the idiot in Mao Tse Tung’s proverb: “If you point at the Moon with a finger, the idiot looks at the finger and sees the finger, not the Moon.” If by chance they see the Moon, it’s the same because not having the guts to oppose the intellectual terrorism of the liberals and their conformity, or agreeing with it, they pretend to see the finger. Point at Islamofascist threats to America and all the idiots see only a finger.
The Progressives, Muslims and Communists of the world can mock Christianity, the Virgin Mary or Jesus and nobody touches their right of thought or expression, but if myself or Pete Doughtie or anyone else simply states facts concerning Islam. the Koran and the Prophet Mohammed, we are called bigots, xenophobes and racists. Progressive Democrats/Communists and Code Pink can yell anti-American slogans, call our soldiers “murderers” and “baby-killers”, fly the Mexican or any other nationality flag over the U.S. flag or even burn our beloved American flag and nothing happens; but if anyone does the identical thing against Islam, all Hell breaks loose! This conflict is ideological and has no racial quality whatsoever.
If we can condone Islamofascism and Sharia Law within the U.S. in the name of broadmindedness, understanding and pluralism, why did we fight Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin? Why did we organize the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba? Why did we go to Korea and Vietnam? Why does the U.S. send soldiers, such as Seal Team Six, to kill and die in wars declared against the enemies of freedom, of democracy and of civilization? Are these principles valid in certain cases only, with certain nations only? Aren’t Islamic tyrranies as unacceptable as the communist and fascist ones? I’ve had enough of this Leftist duplicity, ambiguity and hypocrisy! I am a free spirit, a free individual, and I refuse any form of tyranny such as Islamic Sharia; I refuse to listen to the clamor for the Theocratic State.
The Leftists and the Muslim sympathizers would exterminate the right of dissent within our representative democratic Republic. They would see us punished and our admonishments against Islam made criminal, just as the case in Europe, where we witnessed numerous notable people, such as Bridgette Bardot and Geert Wilders, prosecuted for “hate-speech” against Muslims. They would silence America’s children, hand them to the enemy and abandon them to a minority that swaggers and blackmails as it re-establishes heresy and burns the free minds on the stake. They would build a non-democracy…a deceit…a lie!
Upon their death, I full well suspect that all Progressive Democrat/Communists will plunge headlong into Hell and down Lucifer’s throat due to multiple un-repented sins, but especially their intellectual terrorism. They presume and assume to hold the Truth in a dogmatic manner; if you do not think as they do, you are an idiot and an outcast. And now, Hollywood, public education, university professors and psuedo-intellectuals have poisoned the minds of two generations, as they work on the third. Let’s state facts. The mendacious pacifists who dessiminate the most obtuse illiberalism and the most bullying fascism were spawned by the Left; anti-Americanism originated with the Democratic Party, and now they are engaging in an even more despicable sin, as they foster Islamism and Sharia Law in America!
What kind of freedom would allow us to be invaded or muzzled or prevented from thinking, speaking or rebelling? What kind of freedom would allow Americans to live in fear of being prosecuted and convicted as criminals for the fiction of “hate-speech”? What kind of freedom seeks to censor my thoughts and feelings, to decide whom I must love and whom I must hate, so that if I hate my country and my fellow Americans I go to Heaven and if I hate Muslims I go to Hell? A non-freedom, I say…a mockery…a farce!
Like love, hate belongs to human nature…to Life…and cannot be forbidden by some article of some penal code. It can be judged, adversed or condemned, but only on a moral basis. I have the right to love whom I want, and I also have the right to hate whom I want. Let’s start with those who hate me. Yes, I hate the Bin Ladens, the Zawahiris and the kamikazes and suicide bombers who blow our people up; I do hate the bastards who smear the facades of churches and urinate on them. I do hate the Michael Moores, the Ward Churchills, the Noam Chomskys, the George Soroses, Cloward and Pivens, the Barack Obamas, their accomplices and the domestic traitors who sell us to the enemy. I do hate them as much as I hate the Ayatollah Khomenei, Putin, Ahmadinejad, Hu and Chavez. I hate them as I always hated any murder of Freedom. It is my sacrosanct right…my sacrosanct duty.
John 8:32: You will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. Millions of American patriots, such as myself, Pete Doughtie, Kevin Fisher, Lou Ann Zelenik, Rebecca Bynum, Pam King, Sam Solomon, Bill Warner, Jerry Gordon, Frank Gaffney and Bill Ketron, have led the battle against the introduction of Sharia Law and Islamofascism within the U.S. through the use of honest facts. All of us are fulfilling a very difficult, a very grievous duty…the duty of speaking the Truth. And in speaking the Truth, giving voice to the voiceless!
