Ann Barnhardt rebuts Lindsey Graham's comments of 4/3/2011 - and a certain totalitarian political manifesto is quoted and then

 and then conflagrated.  She´s such a sweetheart!  Ann Barnhardt, Culture Hero   4/3/2011 regarding the First Amendment. Part 1 of 2.

---copy--Even if you don’t do anything else today, please take a moment to look at the two videos that Ann Barnhardt, an intrepid Colorado resident, made a couple of days ago responding to Senator Lindsey Graham’s spineless attack on Terry Jones, the Florida minister who presided over a “trial” and burning of a Koran late last month. I link to them at the end of this post.

A recap: When publicized and condemned by Afghan President Hamid Karzai and officials in Pakistan last week, Jones’s bonfire provided the occasion for the deadly riots in Afghanistan that (so far) have left a dozen people dead, including UN and NATO personnel. The instant response from the liberal establishment was condemnation — not of the rioters who were, as is their wont, murdering for Allah, but of Terry Jones. As I noted in this space Monday, Islamophiliacs from Time’s Joe Klein to Senators Harry Reid and Lindsey Graham blamed Jones for the rampage. Even General David Petraeus condemned the Koran burning as “hateful, intolerant, extremely disrespectful.” On Face the NationLindsey Graham said:

I wish we could find some way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war. During World War II you had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy. Any time we can push back  here in American against actions like this that put our troops at risk, we ought to do it.

Sobering, isn’t it, to realize how quickly folks entrusted with upholding the Constitution are willing to dispense with its protections? I was moderately tart about these latest exhibitions of what I called “preemptive capitulation.” But my response was a veritable valentine compared with Ms. Barnhardt’s eloquent demolition. There are some theatrics in her presentation. She repeatedly calls Graham a “jackass” — a “stupid, stupid jackass” on one occasion.  In part two, she reads various passages from the Koran — those memorable bijoux that advocate the murder of Jews, infidels, and apostates, the rape of women prisoners, pedophilia, and beating of insufficiently  submissive wives, etc.  — and then rips out the offending pages and burns them in a glass fire-bowl. Crowning detail: she has bookmarked the passages with rashers of uncooked bacon. (“Raw bacon,” she explains, “makes the best Koranic bookmark.”)

Ms. Barnhardt describes the reading and burning of the Koran as “the main event.” It is a riveting performance, her declamation and analysis of all those goads to violence and mayhem, followed by the incineration, one leaf after the next, of the dozen or so pages she chose: “Evil, evil garbage, in it goes and up in flames!”

But perhaps even more impressive is Ms. Barnhardt’s  excoriation of Lindsey Graham and his contemptible suggestion that the free speech of American citizens should be curtailed in the face of Islamic intimidation.

Read it again: “I wish we could find some way to hold people accountable,” said this U.S. senator. “Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war. During World War II you had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy. Any time we can push back here in American against actions like this that put our troops at risk, we ought to do it.”

Ms. Barnhardt picks this apart phrase by disgraceful phrase.  “Hold people accountable”? Accountable for what? she asks.

For exercising their Constitutionally protected and divinely ordained right to freedom of thought, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of religion? Hey Jackass, have you not read the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States?

--- Also, go to American Thinker (website ) and search for ANN BARHHARDT FIGHTS TOTALITARIAN ISLAM AND ITS USEFUL IDIOTS. It's an article by Andrew G. Bostom (April 9, 2011). It's a powerful report. This cause is bigger than any one of us. Some people don't seem to realize that this gravely affects the future of humanity.

(2/2) Ann Barnhardt: Burns Quran - AFTER Reading

"Death to America." chants in response to burning of their book

Pastor Terry Jones -- copy


(CBS) - Terry Jones, the Gainesville, Fla. Pastor who burned a Quran after a mock trial that found the book guilty of crimes against humanity on March 20, is now reportedly receiving death threats for his public display.

Jones has received over 300 death threats since the "trial." Some of them even list a specific date, time and place, Jones told ABC News.

His torching of the Muslim holy book, which was streamed live online and promoted on Facebook, has incited deadly riots in Afghanistan.

At least 20 people were killed and many more injured as a handful of violent protests broke out in Afghanistan between Friday and Sunday, and angry crowds were heard changing "Death to Karzai" and "Death to America." Afghan president Hamid Karzai has called on Congress to condemn the burning.

Jones has said he doesn't feel directly responsible for the riots.

"The actions of breaking in, setting on fire, and killing of at least 10 individuals so far is highly unacceptable for the government of the United States," Jones said.

The FBI says Hezbollah has a $2.4 million bounty on his head, reports the network. [//]

---from comments --snip--The Qur'an clearly states that ALL NON MUSLIMS must be killed or converted. As someone who lost his entire family to this madness I urge everyone to wake up and do something about this. [//]

Is this how 'they' think we should live our lives? In fear? Not Americans, even tho a 'book' says we should be killed. U all oaught to really research this, see many youtube videos, on Sharia law Also, Islam - violent and evil, a 2.4 million reward for the man's death..... Betty



The problem is, America is NOT a Democracy - it is a Republic! As our Founding Fathers established, can we keep it?
