Preserving Our Freedoms

Both AoSHQ and R.S. McCain have this posted [CAJ: as well as New Zeal and Power Line.]:

“Those voices don’t speak for the rest of us…”

…I’m thinking about last night’s lecture and book signing with Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. I need to write down some thoughts about it, but if you get the chance to hear them speak don’t miss it. Folks who want to preserve liberty can’t be shy in proclaiming the majesty of our nation. You get that and more from Pamela Geller. She’s a patriot of the first order. My batteries were recharged big time. And my thinking was clarified too. We have a purpose as Americans, as part of our citizenship, to give back to the country. There are responsibilities to uphold. Pamela reminded people not to lose hope. She urged people to get involved in their communities. She pointed out that as the tea parties grew last year the despicable “racist” attacks on them escalated, but they just keep getting bigger. The tea parties are not our salvation. They are the sign that Americans haven’t lost the determination to resist tyranny. The beauty of this country is in its founding principles opposing tyranny. We’re in a tyrannical era of progressive rule. It’s not even a soft tyranny, in the sense that the damage to our nation will take great time and effort to undo. The ramifications are not just national but global, with this president being the first in history who’s using global institutions to suppress the rights of Americans. It was Robert Spencer who spoke of this last night, and he’s noted this at Jihad Watch previously (see, “Obama Declares War on Free Speech“):

The Obama Administration has now actually co-sponsored an anti-free speech resolution at the United Nations. Approved by the U.N. Human Rights Council last Friday, the resolution, cosponsored by the U.S. and Egypt, calls on states to condemn and criminalize “any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence” …

Now no less distinguished a personage than the President of the United States has given his imprimatur to this tyranny; the implications are grave. The resolution also condemns “negative stereotyping of religions and racial groups,” which is of course an oblique reference to accurate reporting about the jihad doctrine and Islamic supremacism — for that, not actual negative stereotyping or hateful language, is always the focus of whining by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and allied groups. They never say anything when people like Osama bin Laden and Khaled Sheikh Mohammed issue detailed Koranic expositions justifying violence and hatred; but when people like Geert Wilders and others report about such expositions, that’s “negative stereotyping”…

So go back and listen to Ronald Reagan once more above…
