Dutch Court Clears Geert Wilders

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 7, 2008

A Dutch court has ruled that a highly-critical film about Islam is legal, and its maker is allowed to exercise his freedom of expression. The film is called “Fitna”, which can be translated from Arabic as “strife”. It compares Islam to fascism and the Prophet Mohammed to a barbarian.

Islamic groups in the Netherlands had asked the court to ban such comments, arguing they would incite hatred and violence. Muslims were outraged at Dutch MP Geert Wilders’ film. It also accuses the Koran of condoning violence, by intercutting verses from the book with images of terrorist attacks.

And here is the film the Islamists don’t want you to see:

Fitna Removed From Live Leak Due To Death Threats From Practitioners of The Religion of Peace

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 29, 2008

Color me surprised!

Let me also tell the jihadis out there that it is too late. The video is in the wild, and millions of us have copies of it, and we will continue to upload in ways you cannot imagine. This fight is just beginning!!!

Efforts are being co-ordinated over at The Gates of Vienna, and here is a post with some of the links available to download your very own copy of Fitna. I also have a copy, and will make it available (for free) for the asking as long as I have breath in me. I will be distributing some copies at my County GOP Convention today, and may schedule a public screening of the movie if there is interest.

Let the Islamofascists or their lefty allies stop that!

Here is the Google Version again for those that missed it the first time:

I blogged about this topic previously.

Watch Geert Wilders’ Fitna: The Movie

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 28, 2008

This is the movie that Geert Wilder made despite the threats on his life made by Islamofascists, opposition from the Netherlands, and his shameful webhost Network Solutions canceling his webhosting due to pressure from Islamic groups.

You may download a zipped flv file at WikiLeaks.
Download a Free FLV Player at the bottom of this page.

Tell your friends about the movie, and get them to watch it.

And to all you who would attempt to flag this movie as unsuitable…there are thousands of us in the counterjihad networks who have copies, and will upload it as many times as it takes to keep it online!

God Bless Geert Wilder, and Long Live the Counterjihad!

This is the version uploaded to youtube by NewsGuy2005. I made it into a playlist so you can watch this version if Live Leak is blocked on your provider.

And, here is the Google Version uploaded by the Jawa Report.

**update** 10.44pm

Lefties and other allies of Islamofascism have already taken down the wikipedia page referenced in the film, and have corrupted a second one set up as a news item. His party’s website was taken down, but they have since been able to get it back up. Hopefully, the cyberjihaids won’t knock it back off.

I’ll have a full round up tomorrow morning. Things are going a bit too fast to keep up.

Here are just a few of the people tracking the events:

Flight 93 Blogburst: Will There Be Congressional Investigations?

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 7, 2008

Pennsylvania is on fire. Tom Burnett’s color advertisement in the Somerset Daily American, asking the people of Somerset to protest the crescent memorial to Flight 93, raised a great deal of awareness. At least four television stations covered the controversy, and there were two news stories in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review alone.

Those who went on to read Alec Rawls’ more detailed advertisement (exposing the fraudulent Park Service investigation of the giant Mecca-oriented crescent) are burning mad, and are taking up Tom Sr.’s call for state and Congressional investigations. Word is that two Pennsylvania state representatives, one Democrat and one Republican, are hot enough to co-sponsor a resolution initiating a state investigation.

Britain Cracking Down On The Counterjihad?

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 23, 2008

DRACONIAN ACTION against counter-jihadist bloggers in Britainistan is probably imminent. One has to consider why there is limited or no publicity about Islamic gang-rapes, SJS incidents and other forms of ‘street jihad’ in the national MSM.

If publicity and the press is controlled, which it is, local people in areas which are regularly affected will tend not to realise that there are many similar incidents across the country.

They will feel that the one they do know about, the local incident, is unusual and and consequently, they will not make too much fuss.

They may also think that their feelings about all the Muslim problems and spin-offs affecting them are not shared by many others across the country. They therefore do not react particularly strongly.

Suddenly though, through the blogosphere, they are now realising that they are not unique in their opinions and that many others feel exactly as they do.

On a related note, London has emerged as the biggest center of Islamic Finance in the west, so that might help you understand how enormous the problem has grown.

On one of the recent radio shows covering this, I suggested that American Tourists start paying attention to this problem, and reporting on it as well. Perhaps British citizens could start e-mailing details on these events to their friends in America, and we could start blogging about it ourselves if the Brits manage to shut them all down.

The Lefty-Islamist Alliance will almost always resort to seeking ways to shut people up. I hold that they must do this because they have no alternate message that can hold water against the truth.

The people in Britain are akin to a frog in a pot of warm water that is slowly being warmed up, heading toward the boiling point. The time to act is now, and now is the time to start squawking.

A recent event online has taught me that lesson well, and has radicalized me into quicker action, instead of the slow progress I have have been making on the path I envisioned in 2005.

They say that fortune favors the bold.
Well, I am about to be bold…

…the conservative revolution in western North Carolina is about to see some major moves…

…stay tuned…

A Special 2 Hour Gathering Storm Radio Show

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 18, 2008

One of my favorite Blog Talk Radio Shows is “The Gathering Storm,” which features WC of The Gathering Storm Blog, and Always, of Always on Watch.

They host a weekly show on Fridays, starting at 3pm, with the theme of tracking the progress of the jihad against the west using the framing device of noting the tactics used by Islamists as they attempt to soften up western civilization for the coming war via Intimidation, Infiltration, and Disinformation. They also track the Appeasers & Apologists, and WC gives out a weekly “Winston Churchill Golden Balls Award” to someone who has had the stones to stand up to them and their fellow travelers and appeasers.

This weeks guests are:

1. Ilana Freedman of The Gerard Group, which states at the site’s header, If you want to ignore the terrorist threat, that’s your business. If you want to protect against it, that’s ours. See this list for articles by Ms. Freedman.

2. Brigitte Gabriel, author of Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America and founder of the web site ACT For America!, where Ms. Gabriel states I founded ACT! for America because Islamic militants have declared war on America….We are in for the fight of our lives….

3. Blogger Lionheart from the UK. He will be arrested if he returns to the UK for violating Britain’s hate crime law. This is a travesty of freedom and a show not to miss because what’s happening to Lionheart can and may happen to you.

4. Lee Kaplan: undercover investigative journalist and a contributor to Front Page Magazine. He is also a regular columnist for the Israel National News and Canada Free Press and a senior intelligence analyst and communications director for the Northeast Intelligence Network. He heads the organizations Defending America for Knowledge and Action (DAFKA) and Stop the ISM. Mr. Kaplan hast a weekly radio show entitled “The Islamic Agenda” on Jerusalem Radio. Additionally he is on the air every Tuesday from 8-10 PM on the Jim Kirkwood Show.

If you are unable to listen to the show live, it will be podcast here, sometime after the show Friday, perhaps before 6pm.

Sheepdog in Iraq

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 14, 2008

One of my blogger pals I have exchanged comments with is in Iraq, and you can read of his experiences here. I couldn’t help but swipe a little of his last to post:

Note: If you ever go somewhere exotic, like Iraq in the winter, and your company, or the Army tells you you don’t need to pack a sleeping bag because linens will be provided at your destination, don’t pay any attention! The heater in your tent WILL break on the coldest frackin’ night, and you will be shivering in your jacket and running to the BX the next day only to learn they are closed for inventory. You will survive, congratulate yourself for not getting sick like everyone else, then promptly get sick a couple days later. Murphy and his stupid law strike again.

He is on my prayer list for the duration.

Sharia Law Watch: Honor Killings in the USA

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 3, 2008

In Texas:

Most of the reports I’ve read focus on the names and ages of the father and daughters. I wasn’t going to report on it, but I realized this is just going to be labeled another Islamic “honor killing” – which hardly does the tragedy the justice it deserves.

If you look at the picture on My Space you can see two cute teenagers mugging for the camera. This is a snapshot of girls who have assimilated to American culture.

Mr. Said’s picture in the news reports shows a Middle East native, a guy driving a cab in the Dallas area. In fact, he killed his daughters in his cab. No doubt it came as a total surprise, but you know there must have been months of arguments and disagreements between father and daughters.

No mother is mentioned. Just an empty house and an “armed and dangerous individual.” No context, no information beyond the two deaths…

And in Illinois:

MARKHAM, Illinois (AP) — A suburban Chicago man is accused of setting an apartment fire — killing his pregnant daughter, her husband and their young child — because the son-in-law didn’t ask permission for the marriage, prosecutors said.

It took firefighters three hours to extinguish the blaze, which gutted the 36-unit Le Claire Station Apartments.

Subhash Chander, 57, of Oak Forest, Illinois, was ordered held without bond Tuesday on three counts of first-degree murder, one count of intentional homicide of an unborn child and one count of aggravated arson.

Prosecutors allege Chander used gasoline to start the fire late Saturday. The India native told police he disliked his son-in-law because he belonged to a lower caste and had married his daughter without his consent, said Cook County First Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Milan.

“His son-in-law was beneath him in his opinion,” Milan said.

Why don’t lefties care about violence against women when it is Muslims doing the killing, raping, and beating? I think it is because they are ideological allies in Revolutionary Defeatism, which they both hope to use to destroy Western Civilization.

Watch what Robert Spencer, of Jihad Watch, has to say about it:


If that isn’t enough for you, here is this little gem of hate:

If a man and woman are husband and wife, the Qur’an provides solutions, firstly reaffirming any logical and acceptable reasons for such punishment. These solutions are in gradual phases and not just for women, but for men also.

For men, it begins with abandoning the marital bed, by opting to sleep elsewhere in the house. After this, they may discuss the matter with any respected person for the husband’s or the wife’s family, who could be in a position to advise the wife. If this also does not work, then the husband yields to beating the wife slightly. They do this because of a misunderstanding in the Quran, as the word says Darban, which is commonly understood today as beating. However, in Classic Arabic it means to set examples or to announce and proclaim. The more accurate meaning of this last one is that the husband finally has to set forth, to make a clear statement or proclamation, and if these measures fail, then divorce is preferable.


This is a false statement. Qur’an 4:34 tells men to beat their disobedient wives after first warning them and then sending them to sleep in separate beds. It is worth noting how several translators render the key part of this verse, وَاضْرِبُوهُنَّ, waidriboohunna.

Pickthall: “and scourge them”
Yusuf Ali: “(And last) beat them (lightly)”
Al-Hilali/Khan: “(and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful)”
Shakir: “and beat them”
Sher Ali: “and chastise them”
Khalifa: “then you may (as a last alternative) beat them”
Arberry: “and beat them”
Rodwell: “and scourge them”
Sale: “and chastise them”
Daryabadi: “and beat them”
Asad: “then beat them”

Charles Johnson, Following Rather?

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 13, 2007

So how well does the Dan Rather analogy apply to Charles Johnson and Little Green Footballs?

Some aspects of Mr. Rather’s situation seem quite apt. Consider what the The New York Times wrote in the wake of Rathergate, after CBS’ investigative panel issued its report:

Over the next week or so, CBS News issued a number of press statements and “CBS Evening News” reports that staunchly defended the Sept. 8 segment despite increasingly strong indications that the reporting for the segment was flawed. The panel finds that these statements and reports contained numerous misstatements and inaccuracies. Moreover, the panel finds that once serious questions were raised, the defense of the segment became more rigid and emphatic.

But other aspects of the CBS debacle differ from the LGF situation. LGF has no Mary Mapes to take the fall for any errors. There is no corporate board which can ease Mr. Johnson out when he becomes embarrassing. He may suffer an attrition of traffic over the long haul, but it’s also possible that his popularity is independent of any fidelity to the truth, and that he will continue to flourish.

So the analogy, though instructive, is incomplete. This leaves open the possibility of a different denouement than emerged from the whole sordid mess at CBS.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
What are the options for Charles Johnson, or for any other prominent blogger who makes significant factual errors?

I see the same three possibilities that faced Dan Rather when the forged Killian memos were exposed:

1. Acknowledge the errors and accept responsibility for them, even though they were committed by subordinates. This was not the road taken by Mr. Rather.
2. The infamous “fake but accurate” defense, which acknowledges that the “facts” were bogus, but asserts the underlying truth of the accusations. Dan Rather attempted this strategy, but it never gained any real traction, not even in the MSM.
3. Stonewalling. This was the method most favored by Mr. Rather, and which he persists in to this day, as witnessed by his lawsuit against CBS.

So far Charles Johnson has preferred option #3, failing to take up any of the suggested corrections posted here yesterday.

But I’m optimistic that this situation might change. After all, Mr. Johnson gained a well-deserved reputation for ferreting out the truth, and letting the chips fall where they may.

Source: Gates of Vienna

This has been a sad affair, and should be a cautionary tale for the rest of us interested in ferreting out the truth of things. Well, except for those of us who are gods, and don’t make mistakes.

I’d rather see the counterjihad movement return to counterjihadi activities, and the Baron, Dymphna, Fjordman, Pamela, and Christine are among the very best we have. I’m sorry if I left anyone out, these are the guys I know best.
