Close all Mosques, while there is still time! There is no Constitutional basis to allow further building of mosques in America!
Yesterday, I founded the American Defense League, for the moment it is only a facebook page, albeit a fast growing one. I write this article in support of the, “American Defense League” dedicated to resisting Islam, the Cult of Death and Terror and founded to protect the Unalienable Rights of all Men and to Preserve the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America. God Bless America!
Our motto, “In God We Trust.”
Mosques are the point where the disease of terrorism is spread most readily. In addition to mosques, all Islamic Organizations, Schools, and other meeting places facilitate the spread of hatred from one infected person to the next. We are in a war with Islamic Terrorism, and there are few people that don’t recognize that Islam and Islamic Terror are one and the same, just at different stages of the sickness. If this were a pandemic virus we would close the places where it spreads, and that is exactly what we must do in order to prevail in the War on Terror.
Make no mistake, my proposal is that all mosques, Islamic organizations, schools, and other meeting places be designated as public safety hazzards and closed by force of law. This action can and must be taken at the State and Local level without any constitutional conflicts.
Everyone knows that local and state governments prohibit undesirable and unsafe activities every day. We have zoning laws, public safety laws, noise ordinances, health ordinances, and countless other state and local restrictions; culminating with private property rights wherein the property owner decides what is and isn’t permitted. So clearly, state and local governments have the power to decide what is and isn’t permissible within their territories. Ordinances exist designating areas as commercial and residential which restrict where houses, churches, schools and can be constructed and operated. Similarly, local, state, and federal authorities close and even seize organizations and businesses which are deemed to be public safety hazards every day. You can’t build an explosives factory next to a school, or in a residential neighborhood, for the same reasons that we don’t want hate spewing, terror spreading mosques, Islamic organizations and schools in our communities.
But don’t churches or religions have some special protection under the first amendment? Actually, they do have limited protection under the first amendment, here’s what the First Amendment actually says:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
This is clearly a restriction on Congress only, there is no way to read the word “Congress” and imagine that what was intended was “Congress nor any other governmental organization”. So only “Congress” the only part of the government empowered to pass laws, is forbidden from passing a law relative to religion. This restriction on Congress in no way implies a restriction on State or Local Government. Applying the 10th amendment further reinforces this point, and we understood the first amendment to mean that not only does this restriction on Congress prevent them from interferring passing laws relative this issue, they have no power to impede the States from doing so.
So, be forewared, the supporters of the terror and death cult of Islam are trying to hide behind the first amendment, the same way they use children and women as human shields for their cowardly attacks worldwide. DON’T FALL FOR THIS, IT’S A LIE!
If you are facing a tough adversary, they may claim that you are forgetting the 14th Amendment, which states: “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
At first glance they seem to be right, but if you read both the First and Fourteenth Amendments carefully, you’ll recognize that what they are describing is actually an abuse of the Fourteenth Amendment. Again, the wording of the first amendment is clearly directed only at Congress, and State or Local Actions in no way abridges this restriction against Congress in favor of all citizens. Applying the fourteenth amendment is unneccesary as the restriction against Congress is not being abriged by and State or Local Government and the argument is incorrect and illogical. Furthermore, there is no way to read the 14th amendment to understand that any restriction on the Federal Government is also a restriction on State and Local Governments.
Eventhough, some perhaps all States have written a similar clause into their own laws, specific local ordinances easily trump state laws and federal laws for general protections of religion and speech. That’s exactly the position that Thomas Jefferson declared in the Kentucky Resolutions which became law in Kentucky, but in truth are little more than clarifications of several widely misinterpreted clauses of our Constitution.
Don’t take my word for it, here’s what Thomas Jefferson said on the subject:
“Resolved, That it is true as a general principle, and is also expressly declared by one of the amendments to the Constitutions, that “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, our prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people; and that no power over the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or freedom of the press being delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, all lawful powers respecting the same did of right remain, and were reserved to the States or the people: that thus was manifested their determination to retain to themselves the right of judging how far the licentiousness of speech and of the press may be abridged without lessening their useful freedom, and how far those abuses which cannot be separated from their use should be tolerated, rather than the use be destroyed. And thus also they guarded against all abridgment by the United States of the freedom of religious opinions and exercises, and retained to themselves the right of protecting the same, as this State, by a law passed on the general demand of its citizens, had already protected them from all human restraint or interference. And that in addition to this general principle and express declaration, another and more special provision has been made by one of the amendments to the Constitution, which expressly declares, that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press”: thereby guarding in the same sentence, and under the same words, the freedom of religion, of speech, and of the press: insomuch, that whatever violated either, throws down the sanctuary which covers the others, arid that libels, falsehood, and defamation, equally with heresy and false religion, are withheld from the cognizance of federal tribunals. That, therefore, the act of Congress of the United States, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, intituled “An Act in addition to the act intituled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States,” which does abridge the freedom of the press, is not law, but is altogether void, and of no force.”
So what should we do? Find the mosques in your community, document their abuses of our laws and register complaints against them with your local government officials. Find out what they are preaching and publish it and inform everyone near the mosque of the dangers they present. Educate your local elected officials and public safety and judicial officers about the dangerous pattern of behaviour that mosques, Islamic organizations, schools, and other meeting places present and your refusal to allow that in your neighborhood.
Read about the violence that leading Imams advocate and foment. The same religion that invariably causes widespread violence in predominantly Muslim countries, and unrest and terror in countries with growing populations, will do the same thing in your community if you don’t stop them.
Start a Community Defense League and Associate with the American Defense League study the attrocities permitted and committed by Islamic Law (Sharia) and use the truth and the power of the law to resist the spread of the cult of violence and death. America is a peaceful country, let’s keep it that way. We have religious tolerance, and our tolerance for this false religion has ended.
Winston Churchill said it best, in rebuttal to Neville Chamberlain’s politically correct appeasment of Adolf Hitler which caused millions of deaths and destroyed most of Europe.
If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fights with all the odds against you with only a precarious chance of survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is not hope of victory at all, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.
I’m with Winston Churchill, I chose to fight now when we can win easily without bloodshed. Join me and the American Defense League.
God Bless America.
