Honor killings, gang rape and NOW

From here.

Why would you come to America and raise a family, if you hated the culture? Why would you raise a child here and then try to kill her for becoming “too Westernized”?

Short of maybe the Amish, who deliberately isolate themselves from the rest of the culture, there is no other group in America who can even come close to preventing the Westernization of their children. The Amish provide their own schools for their children. Most Muslims who come to America put their children in public school. They aren’t in Muslim schools, by and large. And even if they were, you can’t prevent exposure of your kids to Western traditions and morals and live in the suburbs. Amish don’t live among the ‘English’, on purpose. It is their choice and they don’t impose that choice on the rest of the nation. They live quietly and peacefully among their own. They don’t expect the rest of America to acquiesce to their religious beliefs or expect us all to turn off our electricity or disconnect our phones. Consequently, most Americans respect and admire the Amish. I know that I do.

Coming here as a Muslim, raising a family and then condemning your daughter to honor killing because she has a boyfriend or wants to be a cheerleader, is simply insane thinking.  Why did you come here? Why did you bring  your family here or start a family here? Why would you expect we would make concessions in our laws and our courtrooms, for your crazy belief that you can kill a female family member for ‘dishonoring’ you?

And where is the outrage? I know there are some brave bloggers out there like Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs and others who are speaking out loudly on this but they are few and alone in the forest. Where is NOW? Why do they not speak up about this? Why are they consistently silent on these events?

I am so incensed by this continuing to happen all over this country. And everyone is afraid to speak up because they’re MUSLIMS. There is no other reason for the silence from NOW and the left, or any other direction, for that matter. None. If you can give me a better answer, I want to hear it.

And while I’m on this rant, what about this 15 year old girl in Richmond, California who was gang raped for 2 hours with an enthusiastic filming audience? Where is NOW on this one? This is the National Organization for WHAT Women? Which ones do they represent? Just the ones who want abortion rights and want everyone in America to pay for it? Is that the only group? Because I’m not seeing them representing any other women in this nation.

NOW’s time has come and gone, long ago. They are a toothless group of old maids who need to retire and take a cruise somewhere… for a long, long time.

Can you believe this woman?

Scozzafava throws support behind the Democrat!

This smells like revenge to me.  What a snake she is!

No one better mess with me…

I have connections. LOL

There’s a very good chance those Naples guys are related to me. Not so, this guy:

The scariest book you ever read…

What was it? Or even short story.

I think the scariest book I ever read was The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty. I remember after reading it, I would fall asleep and believe that my bed was shaking. I think that being Catholic had a lot to do with why this book had such an affect on me.

the Exorcist

I really don’t like being scared and I hate horror movies.

Jane (my daughter) loves scary stuff. She actually likes being scared – rides big roller coasters and stuff like that. There’s a roller coaster ontop of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas that she has done several times. She’s read all of Anne Rice’s books. If it’s scary, she’s read it. As a teenager, she read all the Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine novels. She tells me that books don’t scare her. In fact, in my polling, she says NO book has ever scared her.

A book that isn’t a novel but did scare me is America Alone by Mark Steyn. If you’re looking to be depressed and scared, with some real facts, this one will do it for you.

So… what was the scariest book you ever read?
