The founding fathers told us that they ” . . . found these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” That is the principle that the United States was founded on, and it’s served us well.
It’s the basis for our struggle to make everyone equal, and it’s a great reminder of why we still have freedom in this country; because no person is born deserving more than another. That’s what is meant by “created equal.” You start with a clean slate, and as you move to adulthood, you choose the path that will guide your life. Some of those paths might land you in places you didn’t intend to be, like jail. That’s got nothing to do with the tiny baby that entered the world on your birthday and everything to do with the choices that adult you made.
It’s the same with the religion of Islam. If you make the choice to join a group who’s fundamental basis is in hatred and violence, that’s not the way you were created, that’s the way you choose to be. I’d like to introduce you to a former Muslim who demonstrates this point far better than I can.
I understand that making them a “race” makes it easier to make them a protected class, and for some reason, the liberal agenda has looped in protecting the Muslims, as if they can’t protect themselves. And even if you’re on board with that, with calling them a race because they choose to be involved with Islam, we can’t protect any race or person who is doing the illegal.
Jihad is to put out effort for Allah. Allah wasn’t people to become Muslims. If they don’t he wants their heads cut off. It’s not a coincidence that the Muslims are the ones bringing beheadings back. It’s not practical, it’s difficult and messy and even the anger driven Indians didn’t do it, they just took part of the scalp. It’s much more portable that way.
And if you’re main concern in life up to now has been about what rights you can attain for yourself and what bigots and racist you can put in their places, just think of the way you’ll be feeling if your first world problems turn into the headlong dash away from a wave of madmen looking to behead first and ask questions later. Your “social justice campaigns” will pale in comparison if middle easterners start enslaving and throwing people off buildings.
Again, for the cheap seats in the back; race is something you’re born into. Islam is something you choose.
If you’re still confused after it’s been spelled out for you, by a former Muslim with the terms defined, then you don’t want to believe, because it would make you uncomfortable.
