Portland Mayor calls for the End of Freedom of Speech.

by Tom Rhodes, 5/30/2017

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said Monday that those not expressing approved views had no right to Freedom of Speech. Saying unapproved speech was not protected by the constitution.

In as much as elected officials are charged with protecting the Constitution of the United States, and their states, Ted Wheeler should be prosecuted and removed from office for malfeasance and failure to protect the Right of all Americans to Freedom of Speech.

Hate speech is specifically protected by the Constitution and repeated Supreme Court rulings. Even speech that the vast majority of Americans feel has little or no redeeming social value. Even though hate speech insults, it demeans, it traumatizes, it silences and there is a consensus in American society that it is valueless at best and dangerous at worst. Because hate speech is at it's root political in nature the government is not be allowed to prohibit it.

The Supreme Court’s rulings have made it clear that because even hate speech contains political ideas, however horrible these ideas may be, the government may not regulate such speech. When you regulate such speech, you are also regulating ideas. Think of George Orwell’s Animal Farm and forbidden words. The Supreme Court has also made clear that just because speech offends people, this is never a justification under the First Amendment for punishing it. Furthermore, we are justifiably suspicious of government when it attempts to regulate speech and ideas. After all, government may have its own political agenda in regulating hate speech—which groups would be protected against hate speech and which not?

Any person or group calling for the suppression of speech they find hateful, should be suspect. Silencing ideas you don't approve is subversive, propogandic, and clearly anti-freedom, anti-liberty, and totalitarian. Only totalitarians call for the suppression of speech they don't approve. If you think the government should outlaw the expression of ideas you don't approve, you are a totalitarian and should be ashamed of your hateful tyrannical ideology.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler on Monday proclaimed himself to be a totalitarian who believes a few ruling elite should have the power to control the ideas others may publicly express.

Islam is Destroying Western Civilization

By Tom Rhodes, 5/26/2017

The mayor of Manchester just said, “The message that I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim.” This is absurd. It is just as absurd as our government classifying the 2009 Islamic terrorist attack at Fort Hood as “workplace violence.” It is absurd and willful ignorance of the highest order, that political leaders are trying to disassociate the Manchester bombing from Islam.

The Manchester suicide bomber was a terrorist because of his Muslim faith. Until our leaders acknowledge they will not be able to combat terrorism. Current UN and globalist policy is worse than ignoring the Islamic root to the increase in worldwide terrorism but to force the West to accept massive numbers of Muslims, and accept the associated violence and wholesale change in Western Culture. The New Normal for Western Civilization.

The idea that's presented by globalism and leftists is, "Islam as a whole is not the source of our terrorism problem" The fact that the terrorists are overwhelmingly Muslims destroys that argument, because it's almost impossible to tell terrorists apart from Muslims who are not terrorists or terrorist sympathizers. The logic is clear; because it is impossible to distinguish the dangerous from the harmless, we are left with limited choices; allow massive numbers of Muslims to Invade and terrorize western nations until they are powerful enough to force Islamic rule on the West, or do as Japan does, regard all of them as dangerous and not allow them in.

If you don't believe the terrorists are "true" Muslims, then you are saying: neither Osama bin Laden nor any members of Al-Qaeda were (or are) "true" Muslims, nor member of the Taliban or Hamas (which stands for the “Islamic Resistance Movement”), nor Hezbollah (“The Party of Allah”) nor the Muslim Brotherhood are "true" Muslims. But then, you probably believe Elizabeth Warren's claims she's Native American, and that if you feel like your a guy, the fact you don't have a dick is irrelevant. The left believes that things are how they feel they should be, and that the truth is irrelevant.

Islam is trying to expand through imperialist mass migration. When enough Muslims are in a foreign society, they violently terrorize that society until it capitulates and they install an Islamic government. Just look at France, massive numbers of Muslims migrated there, they did not disperse and assimilate to France's culture, they segregated themselves, and are using violence to force Islamic rule where they have segregated, we call those places "No Go Zones."

Muslims have used this form of imperialism repeatedly for 1400 years. Until and unless they are driven out, Muslims will continue to invade (currently by unarmed mass migration), then terrorize until they are in power. The only solution to Islamic imperialism that has proven to work is Reconquista.

Western Civilization and the massive advances in liberty is rooted in libertarian philosophy. Libertarian ideas are totally incompatible with Islam, as Islam does not tolerate people being allowed to live as they choose. Everywhere Muslims rule there is violent oppression of infidels. The 1st Amendment of the US Constitution alone is a slap to the values of Muslims; name one Islamic Country that has freedom of religion, speech, the press, and assembly. Muslims when in power do not tolerate those freedoms. Islam offers Western Civilization 3 choices, Convert to Islam, become second class citizens with limited freedom and pay for the right to exist in Islam, or be killed.

Western Civilization must either resists the imperialist invaders or Western Civilization will die and be replace with Islamic Law. This isn't hard to understand, it is just a repeat of the historic method Islam has used it expand.
