David Limbaugh
What fundamental rights?

Senators, in their advice-and-consent role, routinely put judicial nominees on the hot seat about their views on particular constitutional issues, but what about the views of the senators themselves? Who ever asks them what they think about the separation of powers or the doctrine of federalism?...

Wouldn't it be instructive, for example, to ask Sen. Barbara Boxer to justify her requirement that Supreme Court nominees promise to preserve certain "fundamental rights"? Perhaps she could first explain what she means by "fundamental rights." Are these rights that are so rooted in our national tradition that there has always been a consensus as to their existence and indispensability?

My CAIR-Inspired Firing

The First Amendment and I have been evicted from ABC Radio in Washington, DC.

On July 25th, the Council on American-Islamic Relations demanded that I be “punished” for my on-air statements regarding Islam and its tragic connections to terrorism. Three days later, 630 WMAL and ABC Radio suspended me without pay for comments deemed “hate radio” by CAIR.

CAIR immediately announced that my punishment was insufficient and demanded I be fired. ABC Radio and 630 WMAL have now complied. I have been fired for making the specific comments CAIR deemed “offensive,” and for refusing to retract those statements in a management-mandated, on-air apology. ABC Radio further demanded that I agree to perform what they described as “additional outreach efforts” to those people or groups who felt offended.

I refused. And for that refusal, I have been fired.

It appears that ABC Radio has caved to an organization that condemns talk radio hosts like me, but has never condemned Hamas, Hezbollah, and one that wouldn’t specifically condemn al-Qaeda for three months after 9/11.

Throw the Jew down the well

Imagine, if you will, that George Bush were to follow Ariel Sharon's lead. While anathema to most Americans, many Europeans and the vast majority of Arabs accept the idea that America has been attacked by Islamic terrorists due to its financial support for Israel. And it is even more widely accepted that the primary reason for this material American support is that quiet, but effective alliance of Christian evangelicals with wealthy American Jews who wield significant power and influence in Washington.

By this logic, no doubt Prime Minister Sharon would agree that an excellent way for the president to protect American cities would be to issue an executive order sending every Jew in Washington and New York City to Israel, where they would be receive $350,000 in compensation for the loss of their Manhattan apartments and Georgetown brownstones. Any Jews who did not obey the president's order to evacuate would be forcibly removed by the New York Police Department and the district police in order to expedite their involuntary aliyah.

Playing chicken games with the crocks

In the James Bond movie “Live and Let Die,” “007” encounters a nest of crocodiles bent on having him for a meal. Armed only with pieces of chicken, Bond tosses the fowl at the crocs to hold them off until he figures out an escape plan. The crocks quickly consume the chicken, but keep pressing toward their ultimate objective.

Which brings us to Israel's forced removal of residents from Gaza. Israel is “Bond.” The pieces of chicken represent land. The Palestinian/Arab/Muslim side are crocodiles. Get it? Most Westerners do not. Israel tosses pieces of land at the Palestinian side, but once it is consumed, the Palestinians only want more until their real objective — the consumption of Israel — is reached and their hunger satiated.

Falwell, Farrakhan, and the ADL's Selective Outrage

The Anti-Defamation League ostensibly exists to oppose anti-Semitism. And it does – on occasion – when it isn’t too busy bashing evangelicals, fighting Christianity and creating double standards....

As a conservative Jewish activist told me recently of the ADL’s National Director and principal spokesman, "Abe Foxman has a problem with Christianity" – unfortunate in that he’s living in a country that’s over 80 percent Christian.

Foxman’s latest foray in political correctness was an attack on Rev. Jerry Falwell earlier this month, when the latter included an "I Vote Christian" sticker in a fundraising mailing.

...the ADL suggests that to base one’s vote on the Judeo-Christian principles on which the nation was founded is a betrayal of America. Did Jerry Falwell establish a national church with a bumper sticker?

The Reverend says he didn’t know he was being un-American. "What I was saying was for conservative Christians to vote their values, which are pro-life and pro-family," Falwell (who’s famous for his friendship for Israel) explained....

Minister Louis Farrakhan, fuhrer of the Nation of Islam, is the most influential anti-Semite in America. He makes David Duke look like a member of Hadassah. In October, Farrakhan is having a reprise of his Million Moron March. In a May interview with the Amsterdam News, former President Bill Clinton endorsed the rally (describing it as a "very positive idea"). The ADL decided to simply ignore this aid and comfort to a notorious hate-monger by an ex-president.
