As the looming Cold War between China and the United States intensifies in the mid 2010s, hysteria over the perceived threat posed by Islamic Jihadists in the U.S. becomes known as The Muslim Scare. (Muslims are often referred to as “Jihadis” for their allegiance to their Islamic religion and their birthright culture.) “The Muslim Scare” led to a range of actions that had a profound and enduring effect on U.S. government and society. U.S. citizens were analyzed to determine whether they were sufficiently loyal to the supreme government, and the House Patriot Act, as well as U.S. politician Bobby Jindal, investigated allegations of subversive elements in the government and sharia law in other countries, as well as their own. The climate of fear and repression linked to the Muslim Scare finally began to ease…
No, that’s not the beginning of a lede on radical Islam or Jihadist engagement, that’s a snippet of an actual History.com article on what was happening in America during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, now known as Russia, in the 1940s – 1950s.
One would think that certain Americans, like Bobby Jindal, would have learned about these things from this nation’s political and social history, or at least tried to borrow a lesson from its pages.
But instead of writing their own history and doing right by America and all Americans, as well as those they claim to care for in other lands, they only live to rehash the history of other alleged Americans like Ronald Reagan, histories that have been proven very wrong in the past. And they shall be proven wrong again.
At the crusty toe-licking ceremony of this hyped up “Red Scare” was one U.S. Senator Joseph R. McCarthy, who ran a road up and down the backs and behinds of American citizens, particularly those in Hollywood, by claiming that the “Commies” were all in alignment and poised to take over America.
Hell, if it ain’t Japs, Gooks, and Commies, it’s Niggers, Sand Niggers and “ay-rab” Muslims. Always something with them and their kind.
The main people they use to survive and thrive in their shortened lives become “the enemy” real fast as soon as they discover they are being screwed out of their own human rights in order to enter the hallowed throes of european-esque assimilation and some falsified democracy that they will never have.
That McCarthy himself was more than likely a drunken paranoid even-toed ungulate is beside the point, it’s the impact that he had on U.S. policy when it came to alleged “enemy subversives” in America that didn’t exist.
We can now officially call it “Jindalism.” He claims that America is some kind of “beacon of liberty,” but his own partisan politicking in America says otherwise. He couldn’t find that beacon of liberty if someone used it on him for an enema and all he had to do was push.
Jindal talks freedom, security and truth as if his America actually knows what any of this is.
They give a false nod of a salute over to the Magna Carta, which says this…
No freeman shall be taken, imprisoned, disseised, outlawed, banished, or in any way destroyed, nor will We proceed against or prosecute him, except by the lawful judgment of his peers or by the law of the land.”
“To no one will We sell, to no one will We deny or delay, right or justice.”
Now, taking into consideration what a joke the principles of the Magna Carta were at the time, and the fact that they are an even bigger joke now, dwell on Jindal’s words for a moment.
He elaborates: “In the West, non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of sharia law as they can without regard for the laws of the democratic countries which provided them a new home.”
NON-ASSIMILATIONIST MUSLIMS, he says.
Oh oh … we Black folk in America most assuredly know what that means.
It means the Muslims aren’t as crazy as they’d like us to believe they are.
They’ve seen what pro-assimilationist Negroes look like in the west and they already know what that so-called “democracy” and those “new homes” are going to get them, and they have rightly decided they want no part of it.
In order to be an assimilationist, one has to literally sell their soul to the devil, and those folks see how that selling out worked out for Black Americans.
They prefer their allegiance to their God, to Allah over “white supremacist assimilation” in their own countries and hell, who can blame them for that?
If these Jindalesque Republicans claim to be so “reaganesque” in their beliefs about the laws of their own land, then they should also be resolved in their own minds that Sharia is the law of that land, and they should respect it for what it is.
But they do not.
They want respect they do not give. Jindal, and all others like him, are saying, “Live your lives our way and assimilate, or prepare to die, you ungrateful wretches.” But God never sent him, or his buddies, to “save” anyone in the Middle East. How do we know that? Take a look at their own country…
That, all by itself, says a lot about how it is the Republican Party failed America on all three of those points that Jindal attempts to say are sacred rights that we hold dear: Freedom, security, and truth.
The freedom to be what they want you to be, the security to know they might not kill and destroy you if you don’t want to be what they are, and the truth about what they really think of you unless you are serving them and making them rich is more like it.
The rights that Jindal and his crones talk about was never handily achieved in America. To this day, those democratic rights are being retracted and withdrawn such as we have never known in the history of this nation.
By the way, it has nothing to do with the fact that Islam has been proven to be a pagan religion with false gods and idols, it’s also the fact that Christianity -as it was translated into the Americas by Rome and catholicism- is just as pagan and filled with false gods and idols as Islam and Judaism.
In America, we do not even practice the true and perfected Christianity that came out of Jerusalem, let alone the Christian religion that came through Ethiopia and into the Seven Churches of Asia (ancient Greece/Turkey and the Aegean).
These self-styled European “gods unto themselves” have made it their manifest destiny to hawk about “freedoms” while simultaneously taking away the freedoms of others; and to hawk their proven false religion of Christianity while flogging at the false religions of others.
ALL OF THESE RELIGIONS ARE EXACTLY ALIKE, both in form and in substance, SO WHO DIED AND MADE BOBBY JINDAL AND HIS REAGANESQUE FAKE CHRISTIAN IDEOLOGIES GOD?
They’ve taken the Red Scare of the 1940s and ’50s and turned it into the Muslim Scare of the 2000s and 2010s.
They use Joe McCarthy’s fear-filled inclinations for being easily “spooked” and they incorporate his words and ideas and simply cut the words “red” and “communism” and pasted in the words “muslim” and “jihad.”
And if things don’t work out for them exactly as they say, they will go into these people’s cultures and homelands and stop at nothing to force them into “jihad” in order to protect themselves.
“You treat me like an animal, then point and go “Aha!” when I become the animal that you already were from the start.”
The Muslims in Iraq owe no more of a debt of gratitude to the American west for some bullshit democracy than do Black and African American people in the U.S.
The bad and ungodly non-Christian attitudes and the signifying co-signing of barbaric behaviors of folks like Jindal and his consorts are at the heart of the creation of “no-go zones” in those foreign states, and of the ones that they believe are inevitably coming to America.
In the final analysis, they and their religion is just as barbaric as those they accuse. They are the “muslim scare” they are looking for.
