The Dems are our Whisperers

Evil is the leitmotif of today’s culture, in politics and in the arts. It’s an analogy that bedevils my thinking.

 The Democrats remind me of the Whisperers, the latest villains in The Walking Dead TV series, who have rejected civilized life to live in nature (‘as nature intended,’ remarked Alpha), subsisting on worms and grubs. They are determined to erase what is left of civilization, and to punish the living who work to live, by killing the living.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and IIlhan Omor are the “living” zombies or walkers, together with their MSM boosters, amongst us. They are the minor “Alphas” who command the herds of the dead. They are the shock troops of the Whisperers. By wearing walker  (zombie) masks, they pretend to be walkers, but are armed with knives and will kill.

The previous super villain, Negan, led a group of looters who raided productive communities of survivors, or held their existence for ransom with the threat of extinction if they did not submit.  Negan killed at the drop of a hat. He was a psychopathic and verbose killer. The difference between Negan and the Whisperers is that at least Negan valued the material comfort he wrested from his victims. Far on the other hand, Alpha and her Whisperers, are nihilists to the core. They eschew all civilized comforts, and kill and destroy for the sake of effecting negation. Civilized life and values are a joke, says Alpha.

As a story device, the Whisperers are literally incredible. In reality, no one could live for long the way it is depicted how they live from day to day "in nature." Disease, malnutrition, constant exposure to rain and snow, and a host of parasites would weaken their bodies and ultimately kill them – aside from their cult-driven mental problems – and cause a growing attrition in the human numbers of the Whisperer tribe. Alpha and her second in command, Beta, appear to be the only relatively “healthy” members. Beta is six-foot brute and the “enforcer” of the tribe. He does as Alpha wishes, and kills on cue.

 Alpha committed her first murder in Baltimore when she was hiding with her family in a basement at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. She killed her husband when he began to go stir-crazy. She nearly murdered her daughter when the girl began to suffocate from a plastic wrap. In the beginning of the latest episode, she calmly scalps a comely woman she has killed, humming, and uses the hair, over her shaved head in a disguise to infiltrate a community’s fair, aside from donning the woman’s dress and hat. Her face is blemished with dark spots; she is not an advertisement for living in a raw environment. She shaved her mind of all rational values, just as she shaved her head. See the illustration above of her holding a Whisperer mask.

 The other Dems comprise a herd of “walkers” and stalk humans (wearing  skinned walker masks) led by:   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , Ilhan Omar, and  Rashida Tlaib). Nancy Pelosi is the chief Alpha of the story. As a death-worshipping cult, the Whisperers, much like Islam, nurture a festering and implacable malice and hatred for anything that evokes the “old” world and despise anyone who attempts to recreate it.

 I have watched this series from its debut in 2010 to the present to see how it would eventually mirror our crooked and corrupt culture. I’m certainly not a fan of any kind of horror film, but I watched this series because it featured men and women dealing with “emergency” situations.  

The TWD series is pocked with gaping plot holes, marred with gaps of causo- connections in action and dialogue. Often the story continuity falters.

 "May my mercy prevail over my wrath." This is first said by Siddiq in Episode “Mercy” when Carl, the group’s leader, comes across Siddiq (nominally a Muslim) hiding in an abandoned gas station.  Rick repeats it later in the series in one of his hallucinating or dream segments. The homily was likely invented by the writers and producers of the series, because it does not occur in the Koran. This is according to Robert Spencer, an authority on jihad;  neither of us could find a statement in the Koran that remotely reflects the Mohammadan homily. Spencer suggested Koran passage at 32:13, but we both came up zilch.

32:13: And if we had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me will come into effect [that] I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together.

Lots of wrath, but no mercy.

In my Rule of Reason column, in answer to a reader’s question whether or not Muslims will be visible among the herds of “walkers.  From Season 8:

“No, it won't be allowed. There were no Muslim walkers or zombies in any episode, just herds of mostly white ones, with a sprinkling of blacks and Asians. No Muslimas in hijabs, abayas, or burkas,  nor Muslim men wearing kufis or caps, attacking the living, as they do in real life. The villains were all white, including the cannibals who ran the Terminus slaughterhouse. TWD will never portray evil Muslims. It made its commitment to Islam through having a character recite from allegedly the Koran at the opening of Season 8: "May my mercy prevail over my wrath." This is Dawah, or proselytizing Islam under the radar of dialogue.”
An evil Muslim walker would mirror the repressed character and yearings of the average Muslim.

CAIR doubtless warned the writers and producers of TWD that to portray Muslims as grotesque“ walkers” preying on the living would be regarded as “offensive” and “denigrating.” It would reflect on what Islamic jihadists do daily.

And CAIR doubtless gave TWD a pass on the mercy-wrath homily, confident that most people would not question its authenticity. It sounds Islamic and genuine. In point of fact, the homily sounds Christian, not Islamic. It’s the moral kind of imperative that Jesus would preach, not Mohammad.

The malice displayed by Nancy Pelosi in the House casts her in the role as Alpha, the murderous, malevolent leader of the Whisperers. She has done everything in her power to block President Trump’s border wall and other proposals in his agenda.  She is complemented by one dimwit, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the two rabid anti-Semite Muslims, Omar and Tliab. The other Dems do Pelosi’s bidding, and rally ‘round the anti-Semites  Omar and Tliab. The Dem herd does Pelosi’s bidding, and rallies ‘round Omar and Tliab. Pelosi has endorsed the idea of abolishing the electoral college and granting illegal immigrants the right to vote and the whole panoply of welfare state benefits.  She will endorse the passing of the “Equality Act”, which is intended to “normalize” LGBTs by making any discrimination against them punishable. She is willing to allow thousands of illegal immigrants to break into the country to better the Dems' election prospects in the 2020 election.

The Dems – as our Congressional Whisperers – are determined to rob Americans of every freedom at every turn on the crooked road to socialism and collectivism.

Violent Religions

Muslim mob aching for Bibi's neck.
If you want evidence that Britain has gone down the Yellow Brick Road to Islam in a state of advanced dhimmitude – there is this tidbit to support your suspicion. It refuses to grant asylum to an Iranian who converted to Christianity and left Islam. The reason he was rejected for asylum was because, the government said, Christianity was a violent religion.

And then there is the plight of Asia Bibi, a Christian Pakistani woman with a Muslim mob howling for her head. She, too, has been refused asylum, not because the government thinks Christianity is “violent,” but because granting her asylum would cause trouble in Britain.

Theresa May, the prime minister of the United Kingdom, stated that "the news would be welcomed around the world, and the UK was committed to the global abolition of the death penalty." According to the British Pakistani Christian Association, Bibi appealed to Britain [after her acquittal of the charge of blasphemy] for asylum but was denied because her presence in the country might stir unrest among "certain sections of the population."

Those “certain sections” being Muslim, of course. Perhaps she meant the Pakistani rapists of Rotherham. They might become “violent” and "groom" even more girls just to show May who's boss.

Neon Nettle reported on March 22nd:

Immigration officials in the UK responded to the man's application and 'explained' why they were discriminating against him. Biblical passages from the books of Leviticus and Revelation were cited by immigration officials to back up their rejection for asylum.

According to The Times report: Immigration officials wrote to the man citing violent passages from the Bible to prove their point. They said that the Book of Revelation was “filled with imagery of revenge, destruction, death, and violence.”

Godfather Politics also reported on the 22nd:

In yet another example that Britain is a lost and fetid nation, a Christian from Syria, who left Islam and converted to Christianity, was denied asylum because British officials claim that Christianity is not a peaceful religion.

During an asylum hearing for an Iranian convert from Islam, the UK’s immigration agency claimed that Christianity isn’t a peaceful religion, and quoted Bible passages to prove their claim, the Independent reported.

The asylum seeker said that he left Islam for Christianity because Christianity was a peaceful religion and that by leaving Islam his life was put in danger. But the British court said it was clear that Christians are not peaceful people.

The implication is that Islam is a “peaceful religion” and that Christians were not “peaceful.”

The immigration officials obviously cherry-picked violent sections from the Bible – Leviticus and Revelation – to prove their point. They could have also cited the Middle Ages, the Inquisition, and the wars raged by the Vatican, and the beginnings of Christianity in the immediate post- Roman Empire era (such as the brutal murder of Hypatia circa 415 in Alexandria by fanatical Christians).  Not to mention the violent persecution of the French Huguenots.  But today, Christians are “peaceful” and the Church – Anglican or otherwise – does not preach violence.

However, if they were looking for a religion that is consistently, and almost daily, violent, they need not look further than the Koran. But to cite the Koran as a sanctified prescription for killing and carnage, would upset Muslims. And, besides, to admit an apostate – a man who has left Islam for  Christianity, would probably precipitate demonstrations and, well, more Muslim violence.

They wouldn’t have needed to cherry-pick the Koran or the Hadith to find violence or urgings to follow violence; these works are celebrations of violence.

The Times reported that,

Immigration officials wrote to the man, who had converted to Christianity on the ground that it was a peaceful religion, citing violent passages from the Bible to support their claim. They said that the Book of Revelation was “filled with imagery of revenge, destruction, death and violence”.

The Church of England condemned the “lack of religious literacy” after the man said that he now faced persecution in Iran for his faith. Church officials called for a “serious overhaul” of Home Office policies.

Neon Nettle, from its July 2018, report, “UK Government Caught Rejecting Christian Refugees, Accepting Muslims Only”:
The UK has accepted over 1,100 Muslim Syrian refugees but refused Christians according to reports. Even despite the suffering of Christians during seven years of civil war, including the persecution by Islamic State, the UK government still refused to accept Christian refugees. In official figures, 4,832 Syrians were invited to settle in the UK last year, only 11 were Christian.

As an atheist, God means as little to me as does Allah. It has been that way for me since the age of 15, when I concluded, without having ever heard the arguments of the most notable atheists, that God was a metaphysical impossibility and a moral abomination. Allah was a mystical concept I had yet to hear of at that age. Both concepts are connected to the notion of a “first cause.” God is alleged to have conceived of and created the universe, while Islam claims that it was Allah who worked the cosmological magic, or just snapped his fingers.It's a coin toss.

As for a “first cause,” which rejects the idea that existence exists and has always existed, Wikipedia narrates that

Since Georges LemaƮtre first noted in 1927 that an expanding universe could be traced back in time to an originating single point, scientists have built on his idea of cosmic expansion. The scientific community was once divided between supporters of two different theories, the Big Bang and the Steady State theory, but a wide range of empirical evidence has strongly favored the Big Bang which is now universally accepted.

Groucho Marx as Mohammad
But a “first cause” is not the chief subject of this column, but rather the discrimination the British government practices against Christians. Neon Nettle continues:

Islamic State fanatics have attacked Christians and churches, as well as carrying out the genocide of Yazidis and other religious minorities. Last week its forces set off bombs in the Syrian city of Sweida, which killed 215 people in an area that blends elements of Christianity, Judaism and Hinduism. Lately, jihadists vandalized several French cathedrals.
This ends the latest instance of my committing “cyber terrorism,” leaving readers,  Muslims and government speech censors quaking at their knees, salving their hurt feelings with Ben Gay, while calling for the banishment of “Islamophobia” and ill-feeling for Islam and Muslims. Robert Spencer reported on March 16th in Jihad Watch.

The International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS) has called on non-Muslim countries to ban Islamophobia, following the killing of dozens of people on a deadly attack on two mosques in New Zealand.

“IUMS calls on non-Muslim countries to ban the spread of hatred against Islam and Muslims,” IUMS President Ahmed al-Raisouni said in a statement at the conclusion of a 2-day session held in Istanbul on Friday….

Islamic censorship is a form of violent jihad, but most Western governments purchase it under the guise of “freedom of speech” and being opposed to “hatred.” It relies on the initiation of government force, with the help of the big information tech companies, to zip mouths, break pens in half, and crush keyboards. There is little difference between censorship and gunning down an editorial staff to silence it, with or without the help of Google, Facebook, or Twitter.
