The Subversion of America. Is it ‘Game Over’?

The slow burn.


For more years than I would like to count, America has been drifting to the left. I began to notice around 1988 when CNN started to substitute the term “homosexual” with the term “gay”. I recognized it for what it was then; an agenda driven initiative to retire a clinical term describing a human condition draped with negative connotations and replace it with a happy word in an effort to make the condition more mentally acceptable for the public. In other words, it was then and still is today an effort to make an abnormal state a normal one. It’s a form of subversion and it is still in operation today.

For a more recent example take a look at the opposition to California’s Proposition 8 which changed the state’s constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to opposite-sex couples and eliminated the right for same-sex couples to marry. It is a wise attempt to stop a small but determined sub-culture of homosexuals who want to undermine a core value of this country that a marriage is between a man and a woman which in an of itself is designed to solidify a healthy environment in which children can be properly raised under the influence of a normal environment. For those who want to take issue with “normalcy” please refer to Sociology 101.

Idiots at Queens College

It isn’t enough to suffer from Stockholm Syndrome but the academic morons on the Left keep trying to brainwash all the malleable mushy-heads they can reach.  Queens College not only invited a radical Muslim, but an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.  Then they defend the decision not by refuting his accused criminal actions, but by calling those who complained racists and xenophobes.

Perhaps the most outrageous item in this story, at least to me, is the title of the cleric’s speech, “How Islam Perfected Thanksgiving.” Upon reading it, I could not help but to think of the Star Trek character, Chekov.  A running gag in the original 1960s TV series was Chekov’s insistence that everything of value was either originally Russian or perfected by Russians.  It appears a similar level of audacious narcissism exists or is emerging in Islam.  If not in Islam, certainly in its groveling academic admirers.

An excellent essay on this appeared yesterday on Redstate. I am reprinting it with a link to the original.

Radical Islam Finds Voice In New York College

by James Richardson

Siraj Wahhaj, a radical Muslim cleric who authorities in 1995 identified an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, was last week invited to Queens College to speak on the subject “How Islam Perfected Thanksgiving.”

Wahhaj testified in 1996 for convicted terror plotter Omar Abdel Rahman, who was charged with attempting to bomb New York’s Lincoln Tunnel and the United Nations. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was recently assailed–justifiably so, considering the imam’s history and inflammatory rhetoric–in the press for inviting Wahhaj to an event with local Muslim religious leaders to discuss the Ft. Hood tragedy.

Despite Wahhaj’s altogether sordid and troubling past, the imam was invited with open arms to campus of Queens College by the Muslim Student Association (MSA), whose members just days before attended a College Republican film screening event of an anti-radical Muslim film and reportedly laughed and muttered “good” as beheading footage of American businessmen and the collapse of the World Trade Centers aired.

At a debate following the film, one MSA member said, “If I had enough money I would be part of the jihad army, I would kill all the Jews,” according to one College Republican present. Another spoke of getting a “bomb.”

Following the events of the debate and the invitation to Wahhaj, the Queens College chapter of College Republicans demanded the school’s administrators defund the MSA on the grounds the group espoused radical, anti-American ideology. School officials defended the organization, telling reporters it was a matter of constitutionally-protected free speech.

The MSA “definitely should not be funded by the taxpayers,” Queens College Republicans Vice President Ryan James Girdusky told the New York Post.

But despite the school’s protestations, the Queens College Muslim Student Association has a history of associating with extremist elements of the Muslim community. One of the group’s most committed members, Adis Medunjanin, was last month arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation with Najibullah Zazi in New York City as a prime suspect in a terror investigation called “one of the most serious terrorist threats to our country since Sept. 11, 2001” by Attorney General Eric Holder.

Medunjanin, a respected member of the Queens College MSA, was a common fixture in the group’s prayer room, “where he came to worship two or three times a week,” according to the New York Times.

But the most alarming aspect of this is the College Democrats’ conspicuous silence on the matter. Wahhaj’s record of destructive and divisive rhetoric is such that, in an ideal world, both parties would be compelled–out of simple respect for the victims of September, 11th, if by nothing else–to condemn the imam’s radical brand of Islam and the group who so willingly extended an invitation.

Of course, we don’t live in an ideal world.

College Democrats’ are complicit in Wahhaj’s troubling anti-American rhetoric by failing to condemn his presence and ideology, a particularly tone-deaf position as disconcerted New Yorkers cope with the Obama Administration’s reckless decision to award enemy military combatants civilian trails in their back yard.

While school administrators’ insistence that the MSA is a run-of-the-mill student organization may be the politically expedient thing to do, it’s certainly not the right thing to do.
