Under Threat

Congressman Virgil Goode made the harsh-sounding, but self-evident, observation that the more Muslims who immigrate into this country the more Muslims will be elected into Congress. And, for this he is being castigated. Here's a link to his letter. It is not a statement of masterful technique, but as I say, its truth is self-evident.

Here's the thing, if you doubt that more Muslim voters is a bad thing for America, then name me one place in the world, where the majority of the population is made up of Muslims, that is a nice place to live. In fact, name me one place in which Muslims make up even 10 percent of the population that is not having trouble with riots and terrorism.

Go ahead, I'm waiting.

I'm just sitting here cleaning under my fingernails while I listen to Handel's Messiah on my new stereo.

Oh, and by the way, in strict Islam, music is not allowed to be made of anything other than drums, singing and chanting, so, you know, the Messiah would not be composed in such a society.

Don't believe me? Well, then please name me one beautiful Islamic symphony or orchestral work.

Ok, like I said, I'm waiting.

Still waiting.

So anyway, the point of this post is not to send you on some impossible scavenger hunt. The point is, I want you to see what Baron has to say about the situation Congressman Virgil Goode finds himself in now that he has dared to criticize Muslims.

From Baron at Gates of Vienna:

Congressman Virgil Goode is getting treatment straight out of the CAIR playbook:
Step 1:

Official spokesman denounces the offender as a bigot and racist. Asserts that Muslims are just like other Americans, want to live in peace and enjoy the respect and tolerance that is their right etc blah yak.
Step 2:

Prominent non-Muslims fall over themselves to pile on the offending infidel along with CAIR.
Step 3:

If enough useful idiots don’t show up for step 2, twist some arms and call in favors until enough join the pile-on.
Step 4:

Saturate the airwaves with the CAIR message, as delivered by the usual reasonable-sounding talking heads.
Step 5:

Mau-mau the offender. This step includes veiled threats, overt threats, sabotage of the offender’s funding sources (if he’s in public office) or his employer (if he’s not), and any dirty tricks that might prove useful.
Step 6:

Repeat steps 1 through 5 until the victim is reduced to a smoking politically correct crater.We saw steps 1 through 4 in action yesterday and the day before. Today it’s time for Step 5.

According to The Martinsville Bulletin:

Franklin County Sheriff Quint Overton said he had extra officers at the courthouse Thursday because Goode had received several threatening phone calls.

Asked at the press conference whether he had received any death threats, Goode responded, “No comment.”

So now it’s started.

Read the rest of the article — it’s an AP story, so you’ll find all the other steps highlighted, with the general MSM stance clearly laid out, in full Useful Idiot mode ...
