We all know the story of Al Qaeda, the still active extreme fundamentalist Islamic group, once headed by Osama bin Laden until Seal Team 6 “fired” him with extreme prejudice. We know they were active in our country for months prior to 9-11, planning, training and preparing the greatest terrorist attack in history.
We also know that prior to taking office, the Bush Administration was warned by the Clinton Administration of the threat bin Laden and Al Qaeda posed to Americans around the world. We know that although President Clinton had actionable intelligence to take bin Laden out with a Cruise Missile attack, he aborted the plan due to the possibility of civilian casualties in the area that could have erupted the Muslim World against us even more.
We know the Richard Clark was trying to warn Condi Rice of the growing threat, we now know that the August 6, 2011 Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB) sent to President Bush while he was vacationing entitled “Bin Laden Determined to Attack Within the United States” was not the first PDB warning the Bush administration was given about the activities within our country, pointing to a major attack. We know that Dick Cheney, who was heading the counter terrorism task force since taking office in January 2011 had yet to convene any meetings.
In short, we know that due to lack of vigilance on the Bush Administration’s, possibly due to an obsession to finding an excuse to attack Iraq, nothing or near nothing was done to thwart the 9-11 attacks. The signs were there, but nobody would connect the dots. As a result, the country was changed forever.
Could this happen again? Are we endangered of another Fundamentalist Attack from an extreme religious group and are ignoring the signs?
Submitted for your consideration. There is another extreme group of religious zealots currently operating in the United States with little supervision of any law enforcement who only merit scant concern from others.
This group holds fast to an extreme and unrealistic interpretation of the teachings of their faith.
They have admitted misogynist views and edicts for women.
They are tribal by nature. They shun all outsiders of their faith.
They meet regularly and plan strategy.
They demand a government totally governed by the religious tenets of their faith and God.
They invite other religious zealots to inspire and speak to their following to rally more rage against the unbelievers.
They openly oppose the Government of the United States and work to recruit followers to aid them in that government’s demise.
They are listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a Hate Group. They are the Family Research Council, a group of extreme right-wing Christian Conservative Fundamentalists who support violence against those (mostly homosexual) who do not follow their teachings.
Founded by James Dobson in 1981 and incorporated in 1983, Tony Perkins (“Norman you’ve been a naughty boy”) is their president. The FRC promotes what it considers to be traditional family values, by advocating and lobbying for socially conservative policies. It opposes and lobbies against LGBT rights, abortion, divorce, embryonic stem-cell research, and pornography. The FRC is affiliated with a 501(c)(4) lobbying PAC known as FRC Action. In 2010, the nonprofit civil rights organization Southern Poverty Law Center classified the FRC as an anti-gay hate-group, a designation which has caused controversy and really makes the FRC so mad they just want to hurt somebody, preferably someone gay.
They support Federal Law to allow medical professionals permission to not dispense contraceptives if they feel morally outraged by it or dispense any needed medical care again based on their personal moral views.
They advocate teaching “creationism” instead of evolution in the public schools.
They lobby to have the FCC enact laws to take all pornography off of cable and the internet (good luck with that one guys).
They oppose any expansion of civil rights to homosexuals granting them equal rights to everyone else. They oppose gay marriage, civil unions, any legitimization of the gay lifestyle. They push for “pray the gay away” clinics.
They advocate for laws preventing divorce until couples attend at least one year of mandatory marriage counseling.
They oppose all gay adoption or adoption to single parents.
They oppose stem-cell research, gambling, and reject the concept of man-made global climate change. They have a religious view of the world and this country and demand their religious mores be codified into Federal and State law.
The Muslims have a version of this, it’s called Sharia’ Law and it actually closely mimics what the FRC stands for.
But these are minor examples of their views. They also supported and funded what is known as the Ugandan Resolution. Essentially gay laws in Uganda presented by those associated with the FRC, to make Homosexuality in Uganda punishable by death.
Like many extreme religious group, they tend to be paranoid and are known to have bouts of hyperbole regarding others. They think the ACLU and all Progressives are working covertly to turn us into a Marxist Country, in much the same way the John Birch Society knew that the actions of adding fluoride in the water was to make us Marxist too. They are known to mix Marxism and Fascism up as a combined political movement which demonstrates their stupidity.
They lack any foundation in reality. They are made up of birthers. At their Value Voters Conference, there was a fair share of those spouting how we were founded as a Christian Nation (we weren’t), that Liberals are turning us Marxist (or Fascist or both, hard to keep track) that President Obama successfully used a time machine to plant birth notices in Hawaiian Newspapers in 1961 and alter his birth certificate, because after all, he is an evil Time-Lord. He might be the Master and we may need the Doctor to come to the rescue.
The biggest fraud of the FRC is of course equating Christianity with Conservatism. Anyone with any sense knows the two do not go together. They have bastardize the teachings in the Bible, inserted their own passages/translations and have fooled many an opium addicted follower.
Wait a minute! Religion is the opium of the masses? Maybe the FRC are the real Marxists?
This rant is of course a lot of hyperbole. I make no attempts to hide this.
However, the hypocrisy of the FRC by citing “religious” grounds for their hatred of others is much closer to the extreme radicals who have bastardized Islam than they are to the true teachings of Christ.
These people are not Christians, they are frauds trying to gain control by fooling the less learned and/or easily fooled to drink the Kool-ade.
They have advocated the murder of Homosexuals. That is true.
I do fear that some of the more unstable followers of this extreme hate group, taking too much of their propaganda to heart, may be of a mind to do truly terrorist acts to innocent Americans, especially if they happen to be gay or work in the medical field. Religious brain washing, whether it be Islamic, Jewish or Christian always end the same way, innocents being killed for poorly justified “religious” reasons.
