Adam Hasner Joins West in Mindless Bashing

With the rhetoric coming from Allen West and Adam Hasner, it seems only a matter of time before they start talking about protecting our precious bodily fluids against the Muslim "infiltration."

Hasner
Hasner, likely U.S. Senate candidate and former Florida House majority leader who represented parts of Palm Beach and Broward counties before being termed out in 2010, addressed the Broward Republican Executive Committee last night, giving a grave warning about "Sharia-compliant Islam."

"We all know there are peaceful Muslims, but the reality is there is a doctrine of Sharia compliance that is intending to destroy the West and that takes place in foreign soil, and now we're starting to see some of that infiltration in the United States," Hasner said in an interview with Shark Tanker Javier Manjarres.

Then he criticized Obama for "engaging our enemies." Some might call it diplomacy, an art Hasner and his neocon friend never could understand in their chickenhawk drive to militarize the world.  

And don't we already know that there are surely terrorist cells in the United States? Just surely as we know that the federal government, under Obama, is putting massive resources into shutting them down? Aren't the real cowards the ones who harp on the same old fear-mongering instead of trying to find solutions or at least something constructive to say?

Hasner's speech was timed perfectly with Chan Lowe's cartoon, at right, and blog post aimed at "vindictive, xenophobic, paranoid, isolationist, racist, willfully ignorant" politics coming from the right wing. Specifically, Lowe questions the planned hearings this month led by Republican Congressman Peter King of New York on the "radicalization" of Muslims in the U.S.

With the revolutions now ongoing in Egypt, Libya, and other countries, might it be best to focus on trying to help the fledgling democracies spring from the ground in the right way rather than ginning up more war? It's just a thought.  

-- Inside, breaking news on the crime wave hitting Broward's athletic and little league parks.

OK, maybe "crime wave" was overstating it, but anecdotally, it doesn't look good. In the space of 12 hours, I personally received two emails about rashes of breakins at the athletic parks I sometimes frequent: Mills Pond and the Plantation Athletic League ball diamonds.

Here's the one I received today from Mills Pond:  

We have had two car break-ins the last two Sundays. We haven't had car break-ins in awhile but it seems they are targeting cars that park on the open grass area by the batting cages. The park rangers and police are aware and are going to provide more of a presence and surveillance. Please make sure all teams keep their valuables out of site. Hopefully they will catch the thieves. -- Mills Pond Park


And from PAL:

Parents and Coaches,

Do not leave valuables in your cars during team practices and games at all parks. We have had recent break ins at our parks. This includes some of the smaller parks like Fig Tree. Please be aware these vandals will smash your window to gain access to your vehicle to grab a purse, cell phone, laptop, camera, radar detector or GPS.

Thank you,
PAL Baseball

It's a sad thing that you have to keep an eye peeled toward the parking lot while you or your kid's playing on the field of dreams.

Patty LynnWhy don't you shrivel up and die? When commissars like you agree to protect these camel-jockeys" it removes all doubt of the danger we have been warned against. You leftys simply don't understand the danger these people represent. The world doesn't run the way you would like it to, it runs the way it IS. Just keep your head down and your mouth shut, and maybe, JUST MAYBE, you can worm your way back into some kind of power position in Tamarac. Then you wouldn't have the time or energy to shoot your mouth off about national issues, but could concentrate on fucking up Tamarac.

People like Hasner, King and West are out there to destroy the world in name of fighting terrorism. I am not sure what is in their mind. Do they think that they will create more friends with the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world by doing this? I think all these three should better go to Iraq and Afghanistan to fight the terrorist instead of talking these shits here. All peace loving people should mark these right wing bigots and vote with their feet and that will stop them for good.

Christian Extremists and Muslim Extremists:If Islam "IS" a religion of peace" then why does a group of Muslims turn to terrorism? Are they merely taking an extreme, literal interpretation of the Qu'an? Then, when we think of Christian extremism, is it groups like the Branch Davidians, the Jim Jones sect or other such groups? Or is it more accurate to consider groups like the Amish, Quakers, and Mennonites as the comparison to the so-called Islamic extremists. After all, the ones that are labeled extremists are those who take the actual text the most literal -- and with Islam that is the terrorists and with Christianity that is the Amish/Quakers/Mennonites and such. The cults, like the Branch Davidians, the Jim Jones sect and such do not/did not take the Bible literally but rather ignored the Bible for the teachings of their cult leader. So, when comparing Christian extremists with Muslim extremists, we must consider our defining point as those groups within each religion that take the text very literally.

The Amish/Quakers/Mennonites could be considered extremists because they take the following Christian principles very literally and apply them practically.CHRISTIAN EXTREMISM

1. Modest living, 2. Communal living, 3. Bible-taught Passiveness, 4. Reclusion from the world

The Muslim terrorists could be considered extremists because they take the following Muslim principles very literally and apply them practically.ISLAMIC EXTREMISM1. Dominance, 2. Disaffection/Hostility, 3. Intolerance, 4. Imposition of their beliefs on others with Qu'ran-sanctioned violence

The Islamic extremists are actually applying Islamic principles more fully and more accurately than the nominal, secularized Muslim. And it is this fact that has to be downplayed by the media. It is amusing to frightening when we see the media repeat the line that Islam is a religion of peace, when it is clear most in the media who say this, know nothing or what the Koran actually says of the history of Islam.

Damn it is just tiresome with all the anti "anyone who is not JUST like me" crap that is being spewed lately. States trying to ban Shariah law, not realizing that its how Muslims practice their faith, or that they cannot ban it since that would be unconstitutional. Not to mention that there IS NO effort to make Shariah the law of the land. Look, I like a little paranoia in my life from time to time, but this is getting ridiculous. To the point that the right wing is going out of its way to make sure that the common man is scared to death of all Muslims and Unions, including out right lies. I am thinking its all a red herring to cover the fact that its just a power and money grab. One day we will wake up and discover that it is us that are in chains.

The question I have is when are the journalists at the New Times going to start linking all of this anti-muslim hate, propaganda and xenophobia to the influence of the American Israeli Political Action Committee? (AIPAC)

There are many jews that believe this is an organization that is harming the cause of jews worldwide, and there is absolutely no question that they are influencing all of this dialogue and hysteria. There is a direct link from AIPAC to politicians like Hasner and West. With a minimal amount of research, one can confirm this link.

Therefore, by continuing to cover these issues in a vacumn, you are missing a very important component of this story. AIPAC is an extremist organization that is serving the interests of a specific ideology that is not supported by many jews. Americans have been misled into believing that jews are monolithic and support AIPAC's anti-muslim xenophobic policies and propaganda.

When are you going to cover the rest of the story, the story of the power behind these politicians and their dangerous rhetoric?

Soon after 9/11, my brother-in-law was on a puddle jumper to NYC. He was sitting on the tarmac for a while, when suddenly the pilot announced that the plane would not be taking off. Passengers had to get off that plane and get re-booked. As he was deplaning, he asked the pilot if the reason the flight was cancelled was because there was a turban wearing, ethnic looking man on board. The pilot looked at him a bit strange and then said, "No....Oh .....you mean Sayd. He's an air marshall."

What gets me is that is that Hasner, in an example of that willful ignorance Lowe is talking about, claims that Sharia law has a doctrine regarding domination of the West. It doesn't. Even the violent and extremist Islamist groups that espouse such things (Al Qaeda comes to mind) are motivated not by some blind religion-based hatred of America -- though they like to play that up in their rantings -- but by a geopolitical strategy that is aimed at pushing the United States out of oil-rich Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. The devil is in the details here and Hasner's take is insulting not just to Muslims but to all of us.

On a different note, a famous face from the 60s has died. You'll recognize her.http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03...

Hey look if israel would stop messing around with the middle eastern people there would be no problem in the us with the muslems,thats the bottom line and the us keeps defending israel and thats why we are at war in irac and all the other problems with home land security and the airports and the whole thing, if we just just let them fight it out,and stay out of it, this would be a much better and safer place to live.it seems like israel cant get along with anybody.

The formation of DHS has nothing to do with muslim extremists. DHS was formed so that they can fondle your genitalia when you pass through the airport.

I just learned yesterday that the Muslim population in the U.S. is 0.8%. Now, if you are a rational person, you would understand that an overwhelming majority of these people are law abiding, hard working, peace seeking citizens who want a better life.

Alternatively, if you are a mentally disturbed neo-conservative ziofascist, you would begin to disseminate absurd propaganda about Sharia law and a phantom muslim threat. Trust me when I tell you that these ziofascist freaks are a blight upon humanity. No one with even moderate brain activity believes that the United States of America is in imminent danger of being infiltrated by muslim extremists. No one with a brain larger than a pea believes that we are in danger of being overtaken by Sharia law.

We all have a greater chance of being hit by lightning--collectively--than any of this occurring within the next 100 years. And that is the truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God.

I would like to yield the reminder of my time to the ziofascist retard crowd, so that they can all join together in their yellow helmets and bang on their collective keyboards like a bunch of rabid monkeys, sharing stories about ancient caliphates and other meaningless shit that is solely designed to achieve the geopolitical goals of a movement that can best be described as a pestilence.

Wow that would be great to see all the bs litigation stop in broward,look at all the yellow pads and pens sitting on the sidelines, and the lawyers have nobody to rob,no more fake or over billing due to the greed of stealing lawyers,the only reason i dont want to see it close is the chance the lawyers can come down with like changing problems,cancer,aids,something like that,the new building would be made for more stealing and room for more lawyers,its funny look back at walgreens,cvs and some of the other chains in the past with smaller or older stores there was alot less crime,i have to compare them both because they are the same,and as you know people go to jail for robbing a drug store i think more lawyers need to go to jail for robbing people and companys,and ther are plenty of lawyers going to jail we need much more,as soon as rick scott brakes the florida bar that is a fn joke, its just a good old boys club,you will see many more go by by,and i like the idear that the gov is a bizz man and im sure when he was running his company's lawyers were trying to steal from him like crazy,its pay back for them,it cost him 35 million of his own money to get the job,and he makes around 150,00 a year,you better start ducking and running you fn lowlife sb lawyers,hes coming after you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LMFAO!! Here we go.. Blame da Jooz! Regarding any Jew or AIPAC, when I see a Jew strapping on an explosives vest, walking into a restaurant, and, clutching the Torah, shout "God id Great", then I might take a Jewish threat seriously. I know of no Jew who has assaulted or threatened me personally. However, I have received numerous threats of beheading and rape from Muslims.. I was sexually assaulted by a group of Muslim men in a market in Tangier, aged 11, after losing mum and dad in a crowd.. I was twice underwent a similar assault, aged 16 and 19, after shopping in Muslim owned shops in the UK's Black Country, from two different shopkeepers. It was many years later that I realised WHY these assaults took place.. and why 95% of rape cases on Swedish girls/women are committed by Muslims.. it is known as "Rape Jihad".. here is a FEMALE Egyptian lawyer recently advocating "Rape Jihad" against Jewish females: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

What about the 80 million Hindus killed by Muslims? Were THEY messing around in the Middle East? No, I didn't think so! What about the 1.8 million Armenian Christians murdered by Muslims around 100 years ago? Were THEY defending Israel and invading the Middle East? Nope, didn't think so either! The furthering of Islam is a requirement of ALL Muslims.. and violent jihad is a very honorable way to do it. If you get killed whilst killing, you go straight to heaven to repeatedly rape 72 large-breasted virgins... no wonder so many Muslims do it, and even teach their kiddies that it is a noble and honourable thing! Now THAT is just sick, isn't it!

Virgil,

Do you realize that you are starting to sound like the nut jobs you are trying to respond to with illogical logic?

Lacnunga

The key here is that Muslims are STILL a small minority overall. However, the problem starts when you have "Islamisation" of areas within a country.. look at Dearborn, Michigan, and enforcement of sharia law (Christians shall NOT proselytise to Muslims but Muslims can proselytyise to Christians). This sharia ruling was enforced by the police on a public sidewalk.. and the Christians, who were simply preaching the Gospel, were arrested and thrown into Jail.

It is also sad that Right Wing Extremists just love to hate soo much that they fall all over themselves trying to figure out who to hate next.There have been more Right Wing Christian Extremist terrorist attacks in America in the last 20 years than Muslims.Maybe we should have a Hearing on them.

Parkland man, I think eveyrbody agrees that there are huge problems in the legal system and a lot of very very bad money-sucking lawyers out there. But I also know more than a few lawyers with integrity. Painting the whole profession with one broad brush doesn't do much good, but exposing specific cases of malpractice is worth a Van Gogh or two (can't let go of the art theme today -- they approved the $610,000 for art at the courthouse by the way).

If you only had a clue. It is your ideology that is going to destroy Israel. As evidenced by recent events, the overwhelming majoroity of Muslims want freedom and economic opportunity.

Those images we see on our screens very much disturb ziofascists like yourself, who prefer instead to dehumanize all muslims, which fits their geopolitical agenda.

I can't believe these simpletons voted to give $610,000 for "art" at this point in time. They could always "art up" the future years. These numbnuts just don't get it. $610,000 could have paid for salaries and benefits for 10 or more jobs for a year. These county commissioners make far too much money (both salary and in private donations), that they no longer understand what it takes for a family to survive today. Not to live well, but just to survive and make it through this recession.
