The Six Levels of Countering Islamism

Islamism, the political ideology that seeks to impose its vision of Islam over others and implement sharia as state law, is a bad idea. It’s a bad idea in the same ballpark as other totalitarian ideas, such as communism and fascism, and if allowed to fester un-checked, seems liable to rack up a similar body count.

So how is such an ideology countered? Governments can’t just ban ideas or round up everyone who believes them (or at least, they shouldn’t). We map out the struggle on six levels, going from the macro of government policy, down to how the individual can tackle Islamism in their daily lives.

Let’s get started.

1.Military

This is probably what most people think of when they talk about countering Islamism. Soldiers shooting bad guys is how jihadism is fought, both domestically and abroad. When special forces are deployed against ISIS in Syria, when drones are dispatched to eliminate al-Qaeda operatives in Waziristan, Pakistan and when soldiers are deployed to the streets to guard against possible terror attacks, this is what we are talking about.

This category also includes armed security measures such as the TSA at airports, counter-terror units within the police and SWAT teams sent to make arrests.

In democracies, despite the existence of strong military institutions, decision-making powers are concentrated in the hands of elected officials and government departments. In the United States, they ultimately are deployed at the discretion of the commander-in-chief, at this moment the 45th President of the United States Donald Trump.

The way an ordinary person can have an impact on what goes on at this level is limited to voting in elections, although protests can have an impact on occasion, if the movement is large enough.

But this level can’t do anything about non-violent expressions of Islamism. For that the government turns to …

2.Legal

Although the state’s power rests on its monopoly on the legitimate use of force, it has many other tools at its disposal. At this level, measures such as banning face veils in places like banks or courtrooms can be imposed. Financial powers include banning funding for educational institutions from countries like Saudi Arabia which support Islamist values, freezing the bank accounts of known extremists and forbidding businesses from investing in countries that sponsor terrorism.

If laws are disobeyed, the state can enforce them using the legal system, which can result in financial penalties and/or prison sentences.

This level is what a lot of the debate surrounding Islamism in the media focuses on: What the government should or should not be doing to stop Islamism in its tracks. Laws are decided by the legislative branch of government.

At this level, an ordinary person is limited primarily to voting or grassroots actions (writing letters to or calling elected representative) or bringing law suits (either through organizations or from groups of aggrieved parties).

These methods, however, work best with the next level …

3.Education

Education is how the next generation is taught to think. What goes into the school curriculum is very important here. How history, religion, civics and philosophy are taught in schools has a big impact on fighting Islamism. It is at this level that the government can implement programs that focus on core Western values (i.e. freedoms guaranteed in the constitution) and engage in diversity and inclusion programs to reduce alienation among minority groups at risk of radicalization.

It is at this level that the ordinary person can have the most tangible impact. Talking to your local school about what your children are being taught and raising any objections is important. So is joining the Parent Teachers Association and getting involved with school life. Many extra-curricular activities are run by ideologically-motivated adults seeking to be mentors. Your job as a parent is to make sure that what is being taught is fighting the institutions of Islamism and not fostering it.

4.Civil Society

This level is very important for a functional democracy and includes a range of institutions. Some are religious institutions — mosques, churches, synagogues, etc. — while other may be lobbying groups or activist organizations that aim to influence lawmakers on specific issues. Other organizations may provide much-needed front-line services such as social care, food banks, youth clubs or group therapy.

Counter-extremism programs fit into this sphere, because even when they are run by the state, participation in them is normally voluntary, and they are usually run by semi-independent practitioners.

Anyone can become involved in civil society through such a program. Combating extremism by building resilient, integrated communities is a good preventative measure against kids turning to bad ideas as a salve for their problems. Beware Islamists also take advantage of free societies and run their own civil society organizations in order to advance their agenda.

With this in mind, people can also engage in the public conversation about Islamism …

5.Media

Media covers the whole informational sphere, from traditional broadsheet newspapers and TV networks to newer forms such as podcasts, blogs and niche websites (such as Clarion Project). What gets talked about is important because it shapes people’s attitudes. What people think will then determine how people act and vote.

Media also reacts to other media, so it acts (at its best) as a vibrant space for public debate on issues that matter (like Islamism and how to counter it effectively). Heated exchange on Islamism at this level helps the best ideas rise to the top where they can hopefully be carried out later.

An ordinary person can become involved in media by blogging, writing letters to the editor and educating themselves about Islamism, as well as supporting organizations that work to educate others, such as Clarion Project.

If you see something false in a media piece or on TV, write in to correct them, making sure to provide your sources, and do so politely. If they are rigorous, they will issue a correction and be glad you pointed it out.

What people think also matters beyond their voting habits because it impacts the last level …

6.Interpersonal

This level is perhaps the most important of all. Challenging Islamism at this level means calling out extremist views when a person encounters them in real life, whether in their community, in a cafe or from friends and family. It also means calling out anti-Muslim (as well as all) bigotry and promoting positive values on a day-to-day basis.

A person can combat Islamism in their lives by setting a good example on how to live as an excellent and flourishing individual and by speaking up when they encounter poisonous beliefs.

Defeating Islamism requires engagement on all of these levels in order to effectively discredit the ideology totally and completely.

Gruesome Things ISIS is Doing in Areas It Still Controls

ISIS gathers the public in the main square of Al-Shajara for the stone and whipping

ISIS stoned a woman to death in Al-Shajara, Syria, a city they still control in the southern part of the country. Even though she lived with her husband, the terror group accused her of adultery.

Abu Mohammed, who lives in Al-Shajara related the circumstances of her death as well as the whipping of two young men to Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, “The army of Khalid ibn al-Walid, an ISIS organization, burst into an apartment five days ago, shooting and arresting all the people inside. [Later], in the main square, ISIS presented two youths and a woman who were in the apartment at the time, saying they were all arrested for adultery. They stoned the woman to death because she was married and the youth were whipped, each of them 80 times without mercy because they are single.

“The woman’s husband was in the apartment when ISIS terrorists burst in but was able to flee and reach an area controlled by the Free Syrian Army. People in the city had whispered to ISIS that adultery was happening there. ISIS brought these people as witnesses to testify as to why they raided the apartment. “

Media sources say the woman’s husband was a former fighter in this same ISIS organization.

Meanwhile, four of ISIS’ worst executioners were recently captured.

Ahmed ben-Nassar was captured and executed in Libya. Nassar, a senior member of ISIS, was called “the butcher of ISIS” and was known to be one of the most barbaric terrorists, disfiguring those he killed by cutting off their ears and noses and gouging out their eyes.

Security forces in southern Turkey arrested three other ISIS executioners who entered the country illegally.

Justin Trudeau: Returning Islamic State Jihadists Can Be ‘Extraordinarily Powerful Voice’ in Canada

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau argued in an interview to air next week that a reformed Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS) terrorist can evolve into “an extraordinarily powerful voice for preventing radicalization,” an endorsement of programs he has promoted to reintegrate veteran jihadists into Canadian society.

The end-of-year interview with CTV will air in full on December 29, but the outlet published snippets of Trudeau’s responses to a variety of questions on Friday. Asked about the potential to rehabilitate Canadian citizens who traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic State, the prime minister said, “There’s a range of experiences when people come home.”

“We know that actually someone who has engaged and turned away from that hateful ideology can be an extraordinarily powerful voice for preventing radicalization in future generations and younger people within the community,” he argued.

CTV notes that, in promoting rehabilitation for these individuals, Trudeau is contradicting Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, who recently expressed pessimism at reforming jihadist individuals with battleground experience.

“If you want to have a good solid hope of some kind of successful intervention, it has to be at a much earlier stage. You have to prevent the problem before it exists,” Goodale toldCTV. “Once a person has been in a war zone, once they’ve been actively engaged in terrorist-related activities, the capacity to turn them around is pretty remote.”

Trudeau’s remarks have triggered outrage among conservatives in Canadian media. Analyst Ezra Levant, for example, notes that the individuals targeted by these reform programs have already committed crimes by virtue of traveling to join ISIS: “Our criminal code has provisions against terrorism, and specifically, provisions about even travelling to join a terrorist group, even if you don’t shoot a bullet or rape anyone.”

“But Trudeau is just fine with them coming back and saying, ‘My bad, I’m cool now, pass me the welfare,’” he argues.

Toronto Sun columnist Candice Malcolm protests that Trudeau’s plan “borders on the absurdity,” asking, “Why on earth would Canadian taxpayers seek to help members of a jihadist army that committed genocide, burned Christians alive, beheaded American journalists and aid workers, sold women into sex slavery and threw gay men off rooftops?”

“These aren’t recovering alcoholics or teenagers on the verge of online radicalization. They aren’t people who have served their time, taken responsibility for their actions and are ready to start anew,” she notes.

This is not the first time Trudeau proposes reintegrating Islamic State terrorists into Canadian society. “We recognize the return of even one individual (who joined the IS group) may have serious national security implications,” Trudeau acknowledged in November. “We are going to monitor them. We are also there to help them to let go of that terrorist ideology.”

“We have enforcement, surveillance and national-security tools that we use to a significant degree, but we also have methods of de-emphasizing or deprogramming people who want to harm our society, and those are some things we have to move forward on,” Trudeau toldfellow lawmakers during a question period that month.

Canada’s Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence is one of the programs designed to help those at risk of adopting jihadist ideology reject terrorism. According to Canada’s CBC, the government has no information on how many people the Centre is handling or which individuals known to have returned from the Middle East to Canada they are engaging. An estimated 60 Canadian nationals who joined ISIS have returned home. The group is believed, however, to engage solely in research, not direct rehabilitation.

Among the other initiatives to deradicalize jihadists currently active in Canada is a group called Project Someone, which the CBC identifies as an alternative deradicalization program. Its director, Vivek Venkatesh, told the CBC that Project Someone uses its research to “build a series of podcasts and counter-narratives through art-based pedagogy and poetry” as a means to counter the Islamic State.

President Trump Calls Emergency Meeting To Formulate ‘Measured Response’ To North Korea ICBM Missile Launch • Now The End Begins

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later confirmed the latest missile test was with an intercontinental ballistic missile. And Tillerson says that’s a new escalation of the threat posed to the United States and the world by North Korea.  The US has also requested a closed-door meeting of the United Nations Security Council on North Korea’s latest missile launch, a spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations says.
president-trump-emergency-meeting-north-korea-united-states-nations-missile-launch

President Donald Trump called an emergency meeting on the Fourth of July to formulate a ‘measured response’ to North Korea’s first intercontinental ballistic missile test, amid fears it could reach as far as Alaska.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The United States today confirmed that North Korea did in fact successfully test launch an inter-continental ballistic missile Monday night, a missile that is absolutely of reaching any part of Alaska. Today, President Trump called for an emergency meeting to discuss what the official US response is going to be. Something tells me that it’s not going to be more sanctions.

North Korea declared Tuesday that it had finally achieved its dream of building an intercontinental ballistic missile, saying it would ‘fundamentally put an end to the US nuclear war threat and blackmail’.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later confirmed the latest missile test was with an intercontinental ballistic missile. And Tillerson says that’s a new escalation of the threat posed to the United States and the world by North Korea.

The launch, which came as the United States prepared to mark its Independence Day, triggered a Twitter outburst from Trump who urged China to ‘put a heavy move’ on North Korea to ‘end this nonsense once and for all’.

US military and national security officials are now holding the unexpected meeting to determine if leader Kim Jong-un’s claim his country fired an intercontinental missile is true, Trump administration sources told CNN.

The US has also requested a closed-door meeting of the United Nations Security Council on North Korea’s latest missile launch, a spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations says.

The spokesman said the meeting of the 15-member council was likely to be scheduled for Wednesday.

If data and intelligence proves the ICBM was launched, officials say Trump would potentially approve a ‘measured response’ to deal with North Korea. Potential responses include sending additional troops to the region and possibly more sanctions.

North Korea has long sought to build a rocket capable of delivering an atomic warhead to the United States – something Trump has vowed ‘won’t happen’.

In an announcement of the missile test, North Korean officials called the launch, which leader Kim Jong-un supervised, a ‘glistening miracle’.

The Hwasong-14 ICBM reached an altitude of about 1,741 miles (2,802 kilometres) and flew 579 miles (933 kilometres) for 39 minutes before hitting a target area on the sea off the east coast, according to North Korea.

Washington, Japan and South Korea gave similar figures, and US experts said the trajectory implied the device could reach Alaska.

North Korea is subject to multiple sets of United Nations sanctions over its atomic and missile programs, which it says it needs to protect itself against a possible invasion. It regularly issues bloodcurdling threats against its ‘imperialist enemy’ Washington, and has long sought a rocket capable of delivering a warhead to the continental United States.

Russia and China joined diplomatic forces on Tuesday and called on North Korea, South Korea and the US to sign up to a Chinese de-escalation plan designed to defuse tensions around Pyongyang’s missile program.

The plan would see North Korea suspend its ballistic missile program and the US and South Korea simultaneously call a moratorium on large-scale missile exercises, both moves aimed at paving the way for multilateral talks.

The initiative was set out in a joint statement from the Russian and Chinese foreign ministries issued shortly after President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping held wide-ranging talks in the Kremlin.

Russia and China both share a land border with North Korea and have been involved in past efforts to try to calm tensions between Pyongyang and the West.

Moscow and Beijing used the same joint declaration to call on Washington to immediately halt deployment of its THAAD anti-missile system in South Korea, a move Washington says is necessitated by the North Korean missile threat.

North Korea’s missile launch on Tuesday prompted control specialist Jeffrey Lewis to respond on Twitter: ‘That’s it. It’s an ICBM. An ICBM that can hit Anchorage not San Francisco, but still.’

David Wright, of the Union of Concerned Scientists, wrote on the organisation’s allthingsnuclear blog that the available figures implied the missile ‘could reach a maximum range of roughly 6,700 km on a standard trajectory’.

‘That range would not be enough to reach the lower 48 states or the large islands of Hawaii, but would allow it to reach all of Alaska.’ source

How Islamist Apologists for Sex Slavery Raise Money | Clarion Project Clarion Project

 

Few ideas induce more horror than the selling of human beings for sex against their will. But the slave markets of the Islamic State are not the only places on earth one can hear human trafficking rationalized. Numerous Islamist institutions in the West frequently provide platforms for speakers who defend this abominable practice by citing Islamic law. And for years they have worked to infiltrate the mainstream of philanthropy.

Since January, the Middle East Forum has worked – first in private and then in public – to persuade the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) to stop funding two such extremist organizations, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief (IR), and instead support reformist Muslim groups.

Both CAIR and IR provide regular platforms to fundamentalist imams and activists who justify concubinage and other brutal practices. Georgetown academic and Islamist convert Jonathan Brown, who spoke at a 2013 CAIR fundraiser, came under criticism in February for a speech defending Shariah-sanctioned rape and sex slavery. Brown attended that CAIR event with Islamist activist Linda Sarsour, who has said of authors Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, “I wish I could take their vaginas away – they don’t deserve to be women.”

IR also has a history of hosting imams who call for a return to the 7th century. In 2016, Abdul Nasir Jangda spoke at an IR fundraising dinner in Austin, Texas. Jangda, according to notes taken by one of his students, defends the use of female sex slaves and claims, “Slavery in Islam… is vastly different and superior morally and spiritually to the atrocious, obscene, and vile Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.”

One of Jangda’s colleagues, Hussain Kamani, has also spoken at IR events. Kamani has said: “If a person wishes to fulfil his desires, his common desires, there are only two ways he can fulfill these desires where he will not be held responsible for it. … The first thing is that he fulfills his desires with a spouse. The second thing is that he fulfills his desires with a female slave that belongs to him.”

One would think that the SVCF, like most grant-making foundations, would do everything it could not to be associated with such offensive ideas. Yet our efforts to contact SVCF staff were stymied – vice president Manuel J. Santamaria refused to talk with us.

A mystery has hung over these pursuits: why has SVCF chosen to align itself so tightly with Islamist groups? When and how did the country’s most well-funded community foundation – endowed with $7.3 billion — embrace the baseless narratives of Islamist activists at CAIR and IR?

While it’s tempting to resort to ideological explanations, another angle might also shed some light: appeasing the desires of its donors. One high-dollar SVCF donor that may have helped to exert especially toxic influence is the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), which in 2015 provided SVCF with $500,000 in “program assistance” for a project called the “Global Policy Fund” according to its 990 form.

The IIIT has a long history of extremist links. In 2008, federal prosecutors in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial introduced evidence that included IIIT as one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s “list of our organizations and organizations of our friends.”

A US Senate committee in 2002 noted a connection between an IIIT employee and Al Qaeda’s infamous leader: “Tarik Hamdi, an IIIT employee, personally provided [Osama] bin Laden with the battery for the satellite phone prosecutors at the New York trial of the East Africa Embassy bombers described as ‘the phone bin Laden and other will use to carry out their war against the United States.’”

The IIIT also runs a religious training organization named the Fairfax Institute, where Brown serves as an “instructor.” His speech defending slavery actually took place at an IIIT event.

The IIIT claims it is “dedicated to the revival and reform of Islamic thought and its methodology in order to enable the Ummah to deal effectively with present challenges…”

What this means in practice is that the IIIT and its “instructors” regard themselves as the theorists behind the growth of Islamism in the West, who work to intellectually and morally justify certain aspects of Shariah law and their implementation. Brown’s specious claim that “the Shariah understanding of slavery” is “not comparable at all” to slavery as it existed in America.

There is nothing mainstream or moderate about this rhetoric. The time has come for SVCF CEO Emmett D. Carson and the others on the foundation’s leadership team to wake up to an unpleasant truth: under their stewardship the organization has both accepted money from and given money to groups that promote deeply hateful ideas.

SVCF must stop empowering the Islamists and start working with moderate Muslims instead.

RAMADAN DAY 1: Islamic Terrorists Slaughter 26 Coptic Christians In Egypt, Mostly Children And Women • Now The End Begins

Khaled Mogahed, the Health Ministry spokesman, said the death toll stood at 26 but feared it could rise further. According to Copts United news portal, only three children survived the attack. It was not immediately known if most or all of the victims were children.

Masked Islamic militants riding in three SUVs opened fire Friday on a bus packed with Coptic Christians, including many children, south of the Egyptian capital, killing at least 26 and wounding 25, the Interior Ministry said.

“Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. Qu’ran 3:151

EDITOR’S NOTE: Well, it’s the first day of Ramadan, and what better way to celebrate it than with the Qu’ran-approved slaughter of the infidels? The religion of peace hits it out of the park on their opening day, so you better prepare for a bloody month. Islamic groups across the world have risen up in unity to condemn this vicious act. Lol, just kidding, they did no such thing. Happy Ramadan, everyone!

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, the fourth to target Christians since December, but it bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State group.

Islamic militants have for years been waging an insurgency mostly centered in the restive northern part of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, although a growing number of attacks have recently also taken place on the mainland.

The assault happened while the bus was traveling on a side road in the desert leading to the remote monastery of Saint Samuel the Confessor in Maghagha, in Minya governorate, about 220 kilometers (140 miles) south of Cairo.

Security officials quoted witnesses as saying they saw between eight and 10 attackers, dressed in military uniforms and wearing masks. The victims were en route from the nearby province of Beni Suef to visit the monastery.

Khaled Mogahed, the Health Ministry spokesman, said the death toll stood at 26 but feared it could rise further. According to Copts United news portal, only three children survived the attack. It was not immediately known if most or all of the victims were children.

Arab TV stations showed images of a badly damaged bus along a roadside, many of its windows shattered. Ambulances were parked around it as bodies lay on the ground, covered with black plastic sheets.

President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi called for a meeting with top aides to discuss the attack.

In April, twin suicide bombings struck two churches north of Cairo on Palm Sunday, and in December, a suicide bombing targeted a Cairo church. The attacks left at least 75 dead and scores wounded. IS claimed responsibility and vowed more attacks.

Late last month, Pope Francis visited Egypt, in part to show his support for Christians in this Muslim majority Arab nation who have been increasingly targeted by Islamic militants. During the trip, Francis paid tribute to the victims of the December bombing at Cairo’s St. Peter’s church, located in close proximity to Cairo’s St. Mark’s cathedral, the seat of the Coptic Orthodox Church.

Following the pope’s visit, IS vowed to escalate attacks against Christians, urging Muslims to steer clear of Christian gatherings and Western embassies, saying they are targets for the group’s followers.

Egypt’s Copts, the Middle East’s largest Christian community, have repeatedly complained of discrimination, as well as outright attacks, at the hands of the country’s majority Muslim population. They account for about 10 percent of Egypt’s 93 million people.

They rallied el-Sissi, a general-turned-president, when he in 2013 ousted his Islamist predecessor Mohammed Morsi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood group. Attacks on Christian homes, businesses and churches subsequently surged, especially in the country’s south, the heartland of Egypt’s Christians. source

Open Border Liberals Who Live Behind Walls In Gated Communities Should Immediately Stop Talking • Now The End Begins

This is typical thinking of the rich, Marxist liberals who have one set of rules for the general population to live by, and another set of rules by which they exist. Europe right now, especially France and England are besieged by Islamic terror attacks because over the past 10 years they have allowed an uncheck and unvetted stream of immigrants to take up residence in their countries, create sleeper cells and then plan and execute terror attacks.

Pop megastar Katy Perry made an impassioned plea for people to “co-exist” and said that “barriers” or “borders” could detract from that goal in an interview following the terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, U.K. on Monday night that claimed the lives of at least 22 people and injured dozens of others.

In an interview Tuesday on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer suggested that people “unite” following the tragedy, which occurred as young fans and their parents were leaving the 21,000-seat arena at around 10:35 p.m. local time.

Katy Perry On Manchester Bombing: We Need To Unite & Love Each Other…No Barriers…No Borders…Coexist

“Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other,” Perry said, adding, “No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.”

Hmm, does that strike you as odd in any way? It should. Katy Perry just purchased a new home in LA that sits behind massive security gates and rimmed with security fences in a secluded area. After calling for “no barriers or borders” for victims of Islamic terrorism, will she now be uninstalling the massive walls of protection in her new home?

Lol, lets move on.

mark-zuckerberg-facebook-home-hawaii-stone-wallA few years ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife went on vacation to the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai. Like many before him, he fell in love with the place.

Zuckerberg then reportedly spent $100 million to purchase 700 acres of land.

Some say the social media multi-billionaire isn’t being very neighbourly. He put up a wall surrounding the expansive property and he’s launched lawsuits against hundreds of Hawaiians who might have small claims to land within his new estate.

Now that’s funny because the Facebook CEO and cofounder expressed concern over Trump’s executive orders on immigration and refugees. “Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post, which cited his family’s immigrant background and his volunteer work with undocumented schoolchildren.

“We should also keep our doors open to refugees and those who need help,” Zuckerberg wrote. “That’s who we are. Had we turned away refugees a few decades ago, Priscilla’s family wouldn’t be here today.”

This is typical thinking of the rich, Marxist liberals who have one set of rules for the general population to live by, and another set of rules by which they exist. Europe right now, especially France and England are besieged by Islamic terror attacks because over the past 10 years they have allowed an uncheck and unvetted stream of immigrants to take up residence in their countries, create sleeper cells and then plan and execute terror attacks.

Every, single rich celebrity Liberal out there has bodyguards, gates, walls, locks and all manner of security to keep them safe from their fans, yet at the same time rail against national security measures to protect citizens from Islamic terrorists. Their answer to the recent Manchester killing of innocents by Islamic terrorist Salman Abedi amounts to nothing more than pious words, teddy bears, candlelit vigils and #PrayForManchester hashtags.

Liberals want you to be docile, unarmed and unwilling to fight back and protect yourself, while they live behind locked gates.

It’s time to fight back, against both the terrorists and the Liberals.
