it’s the clash of ideologies
the nature of narrow ideologies.
And how many of us even consider that we, who ever we consider 'we' to be, might be 'stuck' within one of these 'narrow' ideologies ourselves.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING A NARROW IDEOLOGY !!!
It is a survival tactic without which YOU would NOT be here!
A narrowing of focus. An INTOLERANCE for the acceptance
of the status quo and the INTOLERANT ATTITUDE AGAINST
what is deemed UNACCEPTABLE to the greater community
or to the citizens at large is what ALLOWS us to survive!
I find it INTOLERABLE and UNACCEPTABLE that a bunch
of radicals decided to attack a nation. And like the attitude
of many citizens of Germany in the 1940's I find it INTOLERABLE
that MUSLIMS OF ALL STRIPES DID NOTHING against the monster within!
And against ISIS radicals and those who support them,
I find it INTOLERABLE that I must PAINT WITH A BROAD STROKE
the BRUSH OF MY INTOLERANCE against a MUSLIM population
that DOES NOTHING and SPEAKS NOTHING of the actions
OF THEIR COUNTRYMEN!
Did YOU as a Muslim reader of THIS SITE or as a CITIZEN
OF THIS COUNTRY rise up and speak out PUBLICLY against
this attack?! WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE I see BUT A FEW
----- !!! ONLY A TINY, MINUTE FEW !!!!! Of the rest, I see
and hear NOTHING but a deathly and eery QUIET!
Did YOU as a Muslim Leader in ANY GIVEN COUNTRY that is majority
Muslim speak PUBLICLY against these attacks? --- DID YOU and the
majority population that IS MUSLIM who ALLOWED in the NAME
OF ALLAH have a group commit the atrocities of which I speak
shout out your outrage?
---- YOUR SILENCE IS DEAFENING!
WHY should I or MY FELLOW AMERICANS at all TOLERATE such
silence or ACCEPT such notes of silence? Where ARE YOU the
population of YOU MUSLIMS --- YES !!!! ----- I SPEAK OF YOU
AND THEM in EXACTLY the DIVISIVE MANNER that the ATS
MANAGEMENT OP speaks that we SHOULD NOT DO !!!
I speak DIVISIVELY because IT IS A MATTER OF DIVISION !!!!
I DIVIDE MYSELF TO US OR THEM !!!!!
Choose your side !!! Are you WITH THEM or are you WITH US ????
America DOES NOT and WILL NOT TOLERATE a person, a gathering,
a religion, a small group or an ENTIRE people who sit and DO NOTHING
about a problem that THEY!!!! THEM !!!! **** NOT US ***** Allow to CONTINUE !!!!
So I ASK OF YOU ATS Management .......
Where is YOUR INTOLERANCE ????
WHERE IS YOUR NARROW IDEOLOGY
that shows that A-M-E-R-I-C-A shall
stay fast and ADHERE to it's pinciples
of saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !!!!!
ARE YOU LIKE THE GERMANS of 1945
THAT DID NOTHING when MUCH
COULD HAVE BEEN DONE ?????
ARE YOU THE SILENT MUSLIMS
OF THE WORLD TODAY ???
ARE YOU ARE THE SYRYANS
who have done NOTHING?
Who allowed a FESTERING SORE
to blacken into a great oozing wound
within their OWN country?
Only the Kurds of the Northern Tribes
in Syria HAVE DONE SOMETHING!
ONLY THEY have SAID ANYTHING!!!!
I speak as a reader and poster of ATS
and AS AN AMERICAN IN SPIRIT, if not
in deed and in action -- I speak to
ALL YOU HERE who TOLERATE by your
inaction or BY YOUR LACK OF SPEECH
AGAINST that is what IS THE TRUTH !!!!
It is NOT HATE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH !!!!!
AND I CALL UPON YOU MANAGEMENT OF ATS
--- I CALL YOU OUT for speaking of TOLERANCE
when it is EXACTLY INTOLERANCE that we
so dearly need !!!!
Let the posters speak their minds!
Let the INTOLERANT OF ATS show their TRUE COLORS
Let AMERICA SPEAK ITS WORDS SO THAT *****YOU**** the
MANAGEMENT of ATS KNOW AND FIND OUT just how intolerant
that we AMERICANS ARE of what is AN ATTACK ON AMERICA
IN SPIRIT IF NOT IN ABSOLUTE DEED !!!
SPEAK YE ATS MANAGEMENT --- SPEAK IN PUBLIC !!!
SHOUT OUT YE FELLOW COUNTRYMEN !!!!!
read these words of a great man from 1776!
"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have
this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict,
the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap,
we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every
thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price
upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so
celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated."
'Tis surprising to see how rapidly a panic will sometimes
run through a country. All nations and ages have been
subject to them. Britain has trembled like an ague at
the report of a French fleet of flat-bottomed boats;
and in the recent centuries the whole English army,
after ravaging the kingdom of France, was driven back
like men petrified with fear; and this brave exploit was
performed by a few broken forces collected and headed
by a woman, Joan of Arc.
Would that heaven might inspire some Jersey maid
to spirit up her countrymen, and save her fair fellow
sufferers from ravage and ravishment! Yet panics,
in some cases, have their uses; they produce as
much good as hurt. Their duration is always short;
the mind soon grows through them, and acquires
a firmer habit than before. But their peculiar advantage
is, that they are the touchstones of sincerity and
hypocrisy, and bring things and men to light, which
might otherwise have lain forever undiscovered.
In fact, they have the same effect on secret traitors,
which an imaginary apparition would have upon a
private murderer. They sift out the hidden thoughts
of man, and hold them up in public to the world. "
He spoke of works and deeds of horror done
in haste or in acts of panic or in great anger
that will have consequences far and wide.
Yet, these same words ALSO speak of TYRANNY
NOT CONFRONTED WITH GREAT PREJUDICE!
While his warnings are a scribe against panic,
they are ALSO words of warning of what NEEDS to
be done in the NAME OF INTOLERANCE and that
WHICH MUST BE DONE in order to gain and
KEEP OUR LIBERTY !!!!
TO ATS READERS AND MANAGEMENT
--- "show your faith by your works!"
if you so find the works of my radical words
abhorrant then become INTOLERANT of them
and SPEAK against them BUT DO NOT HIDE THEM !
Let them fester in the public light so that the
SPIRIT of America shines through such that the
WORDS of compassion or of those of hate
may beacon LOUD AND CLEAR !!!
DO NOTHING to my words and DO NOTHING
to the words of my FELLOW ATS POSTERS such
that the true light of ANY MAN AND WOMAN shines
brightly upon their intrinsic nature to expose the
evil darkness or the benevolent light that is within
to an ever-present public scrutiny!
more words of wisdom...
".....Fight? Against that? No, we will run; and we will live.
Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you'll live -- at least a while.
And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing
to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one
chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may
take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!!! ..."
..... Confront our ENEMIES AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT THEM NOW
so that we have KEEP that which is SO DEAR TO US ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
