Prof suggests that Thomas Jefferson was accused of being a secret Muslim

By Robert Spencer on January 17, 2014 in Uncategorized with 24 Comments

Denise A. Spellberg is associate professor of history and Middle Eastern studies at the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author of Thomas Jefferson”s Qur’an: Islam and the Founders. From the looks of this article, the book is likely to be a melange of half-truths, distortions, and inventions designed to portray Thomas Jefferson as a proto-multicultural dhimmi and resistance to jihad terror as “bigotry.” Here, she tries to create the quite false impression that Thomas Jefferson was accused of being a Muslim, or at very least an admirer of Islam. Reality was quite different, but that has never stopped Leftist mythologizing.

“Jefferson Was the First President Defamed for Mentioning Islam,” by Denise A. Spellberg for The Free Lance-Star, January 14:

[“]Love your neighbor as yourself, and your country more than yourself,” wrote Thomas Jefferson the year before his death. Who did he include among his neighbors in the blueprint for the nation he loved so much?

Jefferson implicitly included Muslims in his patriotic rendering of the Golden Rule. Many may find this idea startling today, but explicit proof for it exists.

[Spencer] How ridiculous. In the first place, the Golden Rule is not “love your neighbor as yourself,” but “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Second, Denise A. Spellberg tries to defame the resistance to jihad terror by caricaturing it as a desire to deny Muslims the protection of the Golden Rule, echoing the hysterical claims of the “Islamophobia”-mongers, that foes of terror want to deny Muslims equality of rights before the law. . . .

Do read it all at the url, it’s dumbfounding in its attempt to change history. . . .

Spencer also had a video of Keith Ellison on Morning Joe in which he mentioned his book My Country Tis of Thee (which wasn’t the point of Spencer showing the video, see it here: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/rep-keith-ellison-d-muslim-brotherhood-likens-jihad-terror-to-struggle-in-us-against-income-inequali/), which sent me into orbit (I mean, think about it: “Thee” is God, and Ellison’s playing games, making us think he’s thinking that, too, but he’s not, he means Allah), so I went for reviews on it.

Found one from Kirkus Reviews (a biggy in the review world) https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/keith-ellison/my-country-tis-of-thee/. It was a lovefest in case you don’t have time to read it.

Found 3 on Amazon (no professional reviews there so far for some reason). I liked this one (surprise, surprise): “If you’re looking to waste the cover price for the ramblings and ravings of a quarter-baked radical, go ahead. This is a man who can’t even decide what his real name is, and has in the past advocated ambushing police officers. Liar and wolf in sheep’s clothing. The best urban governance produces.” I would like to think they won’t get better. Hopeless wish, of course, there are 331 reviews on Goodreads, but I can’t seem to access them.Me, I’m not going to buy it. Surprise, surprise.

Soros Sets His Sights On Israel

by: the Common Constitutionalist
Liberals hate Israel. We all know that. They do so because the dopes on the left, Wordwide, have bought into the myth that Israel is oppressive and is the single source of all that is wrong in the middle east. They are the sole source of misery to the poor Palestinians; those dirty Jews, stealing their homeland. Taking by force what is rightfully the Palestinians’.

Everyone hates Israel. Maybe even more than conservatives, if that’s possible. I suppose it is, being that conservatives are but the enemy of America and the Jews are evidently the worlds foe.

Even self-hating Jew, George Soros (yes, he’s a Jew) is underwriting groups that work against Israels interests.

When asked about anti-Semitism in Europe, Soros, who is Jewish, said European anti-Semitism is the result of the policies of Israel and the United States.
So let’s see if this is right. Jews are so evil that they themselves, cause anti-semitism.

That’s like a rapist saying she deserved it because she was dressed a certain way and everyone agreeing.

Ryan T. Anderson explains how gay marriage undermines natural marriage norms

WINTERY KNIGHT

From the Heritage Foundation. (H/T Tom)

Excerpt:

Weakening marital norms and severing the connection of marriage with responsible procreation are the admitted goals of many prominent advocates of redefining marriage. E. J. Graff celebrates the fact that redefining marriage would change the “institution’s message” so that it would “ever after stand for sexual choice, for cutting the link between sex and diapers.” Enacting same-sex marriage, she argues, “does more than just fit; it announces that marriage has changed shape.”[3]

Andrew Sullivan says that marriage has become “primarily a way in which two adults affirm their emotional commitment to one another.”[4]

The Norm of Monogamy. New York University Professor Judith Stacey has expressed hope that redefining marriage would give marriage “varied, creative and adaptive contours,” leading some to “question the dyadic limitations of Western marriage and seek…small group marriages.”[5] In their statement “Beyond Same-Sex Marriage,” more than 300 “LGBT and allied”…

Fox News’ Bob Beckel Calls NRA’s Colion Noir “A Punk” Over His MLK Day Gun Rights (Video)

Sheeple: People unable to think for themselves

First off, Colion Noir got featured on Fox News’ The Five. Bravo man. You know you’re doing something right when you get the mainstream media’s panties in a wad.

If you aren’t aware, Noir made a video on Martin Luther King Jr Day for the NRA News in his role as an NRA News Contributor. The video focused on the fact that MLK saw the need for firearms for self defense and even applied for a carry permit himself, although he was denied.

The clip caught the attention of the hosts of Fox’s The Five, who played part of the clip on air.

The Five’s, Bob Beckel, didn’t like Noir’s comments too much and even called him “this punk” at one point.

Click here to watch the clip from The Five. I’ll find an embeddable copy of the video as soon as I can.

As an old, white…
