Both pundits featured Lt. Colonel West (U.S. Army Ret.) answering a former United States Marine’s question about the mind-numbing myth of the “warping of Islam” that has resulted in the world-wide jihad. I listened to West speaking clearly and forthrightly. No dancing. No dodging. No parrying. No tip-toeing. No Potomac two-step. I felt clean. I could breathe free. I felt as though I’d had a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. Finally came a breath of fresh air, and the straight truth, from a bona fide Florida U.S. Congressional candidate. Here is a video that all Americans should see, listen to repeatedly and carefully digest:
“Let me say this. And this – I don’t care about being popular or whatever. The first thing you got to do is you got to study and understand who you’re up against. And you must realize that this is not a religion that you’re fighting against. You’re fighting against a theo-political belief system and construct. You’re fighting against something that’s been doing this thing since 622 A.D. Since the 7th Century. Thirteen hundred and eighty-eight years.
You want to dig up Charles Martel and ask him why he was fighting the Muslim Army at the Battle of Tours in 732? You want to ask the Venetian fleet at Lepanto why they were fighting a Muslim fleet in 1571? You want to ask the Christian, I mean the Germanic and Austrian Knights why they were fighting at the Gates of Vienna in 1683? You want to ask people what happened at Constantinople and why today it’s called Istanbul because they lost that fight in 1453.
You need to get into the Koran. You need to understand their precepts. You need to read the Surah. You need to read the Hadithe. And then you can really understand this is not a perversion. They are doing exactly what this book says…” (applause, lots of it)
Folks, I don’t vote in Florida because I live in Colorado. But I’ll tell you what – the folks down there in Fort Lauderdale will do themselves and the nation a huge favor by giving this man a fair hearing before they go to the polls next November. Throw him a few fast balls. He’s a heavy hitter. He’s a slugger. He swings for the fences. He’s a hero.
