The Herman Cain hates Muslims mantra has taken a turn towards the hysterical.
In his latest screed, Roger Simon writing for Politico headlines: Muslims despised today; tomorrow, you
Seeing the Google headline and knowing it was about Herman Cain, I had to check to see if Cain had jumped over to the dark-side in spirituality and decided he wasn’t controversial enough, so he started going to Rev. Wright’s god-damning liberation theology Marxist church or see if he had written a tome called Mein Kampf.
So what was all of the fuss about?
Cain replied that he never said that — only that he would not be “comfortable” appointing a Muslim to his Cabinet. This contradicted Cain’s statement to Cavuto.
“And I would not be comfortable because you have peaceful Muslims and then you have militant Muslims, those that are trying to kill us,” Cain said during the debate. “And so, when I said I wouldn’t be comfortable, I was thinking about the ones that are trying to kill us, No. 1. Secondly, yes, I do not believe in Sharia law in American courts.”
In my column on the debate, I called this not only “incoherent nonsense” but also “hateful, incoherent nonsense.”
But you want to know what’s worse? As an excellent editorial in The New York Times pointed out Tuesday, “None of the other candidates took [Cain] to task for this. Mitt Romney, a Mormon who has himself been the subject of religious slurs, at least mentioned the nation’s founding principle of religious tolerance and respect but missed an opportunity to include Muslims. Newt Gingrich tumbled over the historical cliff with the idea, announcing some kind of loyalty oath to serve in his administration, similar to that used in dealing with Nazis and Communists.”
The incoherent nonsense is from Simon’s rant.
The reason why Herman Cain is uncomfortable with Muslims is the same reason why liberal Fox News contributor Juan Williams was fired from NPR.
Williams responded: "Look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."
This idea that Herman Cain is some kind of bigot or hate monger is hyperbole coming from pundits who frankly don’t get Herman Cain’s coherent thought on the matter.
What Simon should have said is: Muslims can’t fight against Muslims who want to implement Sharia law and Herman Cain understands this.
While Sharia law is moving through the Middle East, what is happening in the U.K., is a direct by-product of an attitude displayed by Roger Simon and the pandering shown by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
In the U.K Telegraph, it is found that the police are hiding Muslim crimes.
Muslims have attacked homosexuals and other teachers and Muslims who do not obey Islamic dictates, said the paper. The Telegraph added — quoting an anti-Catholic homosexual — that police are covering up the wave of Sharia terror because they do not want to appear to be racist.
I suggest highly, you read the rest of the article and see what is taking place in the U.K. because if we adopt the attitude displayed by Simon and Mitt Romney, we will follow in the U.K.’s footsteps when it comes to trying to reverse the indoctrination that Simon tries to push and the effect of Sharia law that has found its way in the courts in the U.K.:
A bill to limit the scope of courts is laudable, but sharia law's discriminatory aspects must be undermined by Muslims
When it comes to business practices, even a concern on being Sharia compliant is part of the equation in the U.K:
UK's first Shariah compliant capital protected savings product launched
When it comes to the Muslim faith, our founding fathers like Thomas Jefferson had concern at Tripoli.
Pirate ships and crews from the North African states of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers (the Barbary Coast) were the scourge of the Mediterranean. Capturing merchant ships and holding their crews for ransom provided the rulers of these nations with wealth and naval power. In fact, the Roman Catholic Religious Order of Mathurins had operated from France for centuries with the special mission of collecting and disbursing funds for the relief and ransom of prisoners of Mediterranean pirates.
The Barbary pirates sought ransom from our ships engaged in trade and then when Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman responded to Secretary of State John Jay, Jefferson then understood the mindset and the foundation of the Muslim faith found in the Quran.
When Herman Cain speaks about Sharia Law creeping into our courts, he is citing to a New Jersey court case where the judge ruled:
This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited.
The judge accepted the husband’s argument that his religion allowed him to treat his wife in what was an abusive manner.
So when I see the pundits like Roger Simon and politicians like Mitt Romney pander to a group that he knows will be voting in the Michigan GOP open primary, they must be shouted down with the truth.
What is interesting is to see in the video below, how people responded to Newt Gingrich’s comments which dovetailed Romney’s response to Herman Cain’s comments on Sharia Law.
See start at 4:34 and watch the comments of the partisan group.
At 10:47 you will also see how the bipartisan crowd reacted to Herman Cain’s response to his stance on immigration.
Americans should be holding up Herman Cain as an example of the truth in that he will not sit by and let a group try to undermine the founding principles of civil liberties.
I find Simon’s screed insulting to Herman Cain’s life; Herman Cain grew up in an environment that Simon doesn’t even know.
And Mitt Romney’s life can’t even touch Herman’s life and I remember what Romney’s dad did during the 1967 Detroit riots, so it is evident Romney has forgotten what radicals can do to a city - like maybe Dearborn where Muslims and their supporters threatened to riot over the free speech of burning a religious book that treat women in an abusive manner.
