1. All of us here at Mantiq al-Tayr call upon Americans all over the country to support the Congressional campaign of Ilario Pantano who is running in the 7th district in North Carolina on the GOP ticket. But we go way beyond this, we call on Mr. Pantano and all Americans to support his running for President against either Obama (if he even runs again in 2012 and he may very well not run) or whatever other toady the Democrats chose to nominate to be Netanyahu’s bitch for the next four years.
Now I can hear you all saying “Mantiq, sure he’s cute and everything and he hates Islam and loves Israel as much or more than Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, but why should we vote for him instead of Sarah?” Good question. Let me explain this in terms Americans can understand.
For years we have elected draft-dodging accomplishmentless morons to the White House who have been totally controlled by a bunch of neocon Zionist assholes who have played decisive roles in getting us involved in all sorts of stupid wars and who have conned dumb-ass poorly educated and utterly brainwashed Americans into thinking they are on a mission from God to completely fuck up the entire planet. But now with Pantano you actually have a chance to elect one of those dumb-ass poorly educated (despite the prep school thing) utterly brainwashed Americans who appears to deeply and truly believe that he is on a mission from God to completely fuck up the entire planet. Why have complete fakes with no courage whatsoever like Obama and Bush or Palin when you can put this guy in office and tell the whole world clearly and plainly “Yes, we in these United States are sincerely a bunch of war mongering Zionist stooge retards who want to kill all you rag-head Muslims and if we have anything left over we’ll kill those fucking gooks in China too.”
We may as well be honest about who we really are, and sending Pantano to the White House would be just like putting a sign on the White House roof that says “No better friend, no worse enemy and fuck you all.” Man, wouldn’t that look cool during press conferences on the Cabalah News Network with President Pantano holding hands with Benjamin Netanyahu or Avigdor Lieberman as they sign treaties of US surrender to Israel and declarations of war against Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan?
Pantano loves signs, as it turns out. For example, in 2004 after he shot to death two unarmed Iraqi prisoners with something on the order of 60 rounds and for which he was formally charged with murder he put up a sign over their dead bodies that read “No better friend, no worse enemy” which was the motto of his Marine platoon and of the very disturbing (and now CENTCOM Commander) General James Mattis.
Now to shoot these two as much as he did, he emptied one magazine and then calmly put in another and kept firing. As he said himself “I then changed magazines and continued to fire until the second magazine was empty…I had made a decision that when I was firing I was going to send a message to these Iraqis and others that when we say, ‘No better friend, No worse enemy,’ we mean it. I had fired both magazines into the men, hitting them with about 80 percent of my rounds.”
Yes indeed, he sent that message back on April 15th 2004, while you guys were no doubt rushing to get your tax returns in on time so you could pay for the bullets. And for sure the Iraqis got that message didn’t they and everything worked out just great, right?
Pantano went to Iraq believing, as many utterly brainwashed Zionist-Bullshit-fed Americans believe as well, that Iraq was somehow responsible for 911 even though everyone else in the whole world knows this is bullshit. He even showed an HBO movie about 911 in order to motivate his men and said to the BBC: “My duty, as is the duty of these other Marines is quite frankly to export violence to the four corners of the globe to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.”
Thank God the charges against him were dropped so he is free to become Obama’s replacement. Of course, there are some people who don’t seem to think he’d be a good choice, for example the sore loser Will Brazeale, who lost to Pantano in the Republican primary a while back. Brazeale says some really outrageous things like: “To shoot two unarmed prisoners 60 times and put a sign over their dead bodies is inexcusable,” says Breazeale. “And once people know the real story, he has no chance of winning in November.” Obviously Breazeale must be stopped, nothing can be allowed to get in the way of Pantano for President in 2012. What’s worse is that Breazeale is, like Pantano, a veteran of both wars in Iraq so for some weird reason he might have some credibility as a result. He even calls Pantano “dangerous”, imagine that. And even worse he says that he too has captured prisoners in Iraq that he says that “there is no excuse” for what Pantano did.
Anyway, let’s get back to Pantano’s strong points. He clearly hates Islam, is against the “Ground Zero Mosque”, has nothing but contempt for the sufferings of the Palestinian people, totally completely and utterly supports Israel, and of course, and this is the best part, he wants war with Iran. As we say in Arabic شو بدك احسن من هيك , he’s got it all.
Not only “must” the Cordoba center be stopped, other mosques are an issue for Pantano and his logic is impeccable: “If we allow mosques to go up like mushrooms everywhere there is a terrorist bombing or shooting we will create a perverse incentive, not a deterrent.” Did you know that the Imam for the Center is a very naughty boy who actually supports the 911 hijackers? Pantano knows: Feisal Abdul Rauf is “more than an apologist for the religion-based sharia law, which many experts see in direct opposition to the U.S. Constitution.” That’s because he supports the Free Gaza movement which in and of itself is evil thing to do. Therefore, we learn that “It seems that when Imam Rauf isn’t raising money for martyr-markers in Manhattan, he is busy funding international incidents to cast aspersions on Israel.” Oohh, bad Imam, bad Imam.
Note: as soon as someone talks about his fear of “Shari’ah law” and how it is opposed to the US Constitution you can be sure you are talking to someone who is anti-Muslim to the core and is almost certainly running around with the likes of Pam Gellar.
Israel comes first with Pantano as he makes clear. Note to Shas party members, red highlights are mine:
“Now the world stage is focused on isolating our only democratic ally in the Middle East, and members of the Obama Administration and the Left are intent on abandoning the Israelis just as they did last year with Poland and our missile defenses in Europe. After 5,000 rockets are fired from Gaza into Israel, can anyone say “moral parity” with a straight face? The American Left can. Today, the cover of the snarky Economist magazine asks, “What is wrong with America’s Right?” But they answered their own question by reporting that “[a] gap in sympathy for Israel has widened between Democrats and Republicans. Conservatives still tend to back Israel through Hell and high seas.” Well that’s one gap I am proud to stand on the right side of.”
Being a nice “Judeo-Christian” boy, Pantano has hereby informed us that he too backs Israel “through Hell and high seas.”
On his war mongering about Iran, here’s a quote from his website:
“Stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. It has been clear that radical Islam is the enemy since America’s first clash during Iran’s Islamic revolution in 1979.”
As soon as someone starts talking about how Iran is getting nuclear weapons, you know you are reading code for “let’s bomb the motherfuckers.”
Did I mention Pam Gellar, the living mummy of the anti-Islamic movement? Well, surprise, surprise, she organized an anti-Ground Zero Mosque rally and guess who spoke there? I told ya anyone speaking like an idiot about Shari’ah law has just got to be a Gellarite and Pantano most definitely is. He spoke at her rally and there’s lots of great quotes in his speech there. Here’s one: ““From Egypt to Bali, from Baghdad to Kabul, no one can forget there was a car bomb here in Times Square six months ago. Folks, if you think this is over, it’s just beginning.… So what’s my opinion about a mosque at ground zero? NO MOSQUE HERE. …”
“Just the beginning” ? WTF? Endless war my dear readers, endless war.
And Gellar fawned all over him: “One of the highlights of our 9/11 Rally of Remembrance was the fiercely righteous, fearless truth teller Ilario Pantano. His courage and willingness to tell the truth about issues the mainstream media dubs “controversial” shows that the old guard is done. It is politicians with political courage like Ilario Pantano who actually speak for the people. And they are few. Pantano is one of them. If you don’t know him, you should. Contribute to his campaign, volunteer, get out the vote. Our nation depends on it.”
You heard it from the mummy herself, “Our nation depends on it.” So let’s elect the guy who really showed those Iraqis who is boss. Then we’ll have a guy in the White House who is “No better friend” to Israel and “No worse enemy” to mankind.
2. Skulz Fontaine, a frequent commenter on this site, sent this beautiful picture in. So, for all you Zionist-Christian morons and stooges of Israel, why don’t you use this when you pray in school?
3. I see that CNN’s Rick Sanchez was fired for saying that the Arabs run Hollywood.
4. Ashby is dead.
The “Death of Ashby” is the title of one of the chapters of Henry Kidd Douglas’ memoir of the American Civil War “I Rode With Stonewall” about which I posted not long ago. General Turner Ashby was a beloved figured who played a major role, though not always a successful one, in Stonewall Jackson’s Valley campaign, said valley being the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Whatever Ashby’s or Douglas’ faults may have been, they loved Virginia, and Ashby, a great horseman and a man of remarkable courage, paid for that love with his life. Having traveled extensively through that gorgeous valley, the mountains between which it is nestled and throughout the rest of that state, I can surely see why they loved it so much.
Douglas dedicated his book to “any good soldier who died in battle and is forgotten,” men who for whatever reason found themselves in the midst of the horrors of war. He saw first hand how truly horrible and destructive it is and what it did to Virginia. For all Americans who have or who may in the future experience this horror, I quote from the chapter the “Death of Ashby.” No red highlighting is needed, every sentence is a gem.
“The sun from its rising to its setting does not shine upon a more blessed spot than the Valley of Virginia. From the beautiful bank of the River of Swans, the historic Potomac, to where the noble and solemn mountains of the old State send down their streamlets to form the Shenandoah and the James, are countless evidences of the generosity with which Providence has dealt with this royal region. The Blue Ridge on the east, the Alleghanies on the west seem to enclose this favorite Valley in a magnificent frame. The odd Massanutton is thrown up in the midst of it, with peculiar effect, so that the rich and fertile garden may offer equal attractions to the artist and t he agriculturalist. From Jefferson’s Rock at Harper’s Ferry-to stand upon which, said Thomas Jefferson, was worth a trip across the Atlantic-to the Natural Bridge the traveler may wander over picturesque mountains, by splendid rivers and clear rivulets, through stately groves and broad green fields, each richest of its kind and unsurpassed in all this great continent. But as it was beautiful and bountiful it attracted destruction, for it was the great or chief storehouse of the Army of Virginia. ‘If this Valley is lost, Virginia is lost,’ said Jackson, and the Confederacy could not survive Virginia. A broad land that blossomed as the rose when the war began, it was a scene of deserted homesteads, smouldering ruins, wasted fields, shattered groves, and general desolation when General Philip Sheridan had done with it. Now that the war is over, it will in time rise again, but it will be difficult to convince the future historian that such wholesale destruction was not useless and barbarous.
“It was a lovely Valley to do battle for, a decorated deathbed for the cavalier and hero; and here Turner Ashby died. The Valley loved him and loves him yet. During the war he had never left her for a single day. He had watched over her without ceasing. He had made memorable her hills and streams; and the people along the hills still weep for him, and the forests echo their lamentations.”
And they do to this very day.
5. I leave you with another treasure song by the late Liam Clancy about just how great it is to go off and fight wars. In the intro to the song he rather seriously downplays the how deeply sad and moving this song is. Margaret, the woman in the song who cares for the Dutchman, is beyond any question a saint. One wonders how many Margarets on both sides of the Atlantic have been created just in this century through our own stupid wars. I’m afraid quite a few. To all the Margarets out there, this song is dedicated to you.
Before you listen to this, I suggest you make sure that there is someone else in your house or apartment who you can hug afterwards. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
