This is one of those posts where The Pink Flamingo has been collecting headlines for maybe six weeks. When you scroll through it, you will see why.
Go to a party with men, get 80 lashes with a whip? Sure, if you are a women in Saudi Arabia. If you are a Christian in an Islamic country, you may be sentenced to death. Or, if you are Christian in Dearborn, Michigan you could have a problem. If you are Jewish in Germany you can be stoned.Read More
The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15, 2008. It doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe and the rest of the world. It comes from a viral email sent to me by a friend. I think on this day, it is a good time to take stock on what we are doing in the world and modern reactions.
ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ
” I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz…We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.
The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.
Did you know that only Hispanics are dangerous racists? That is the lie currently being promoted by the far right. They absolutely refuse to acknowledge the racist mote in their own eye. Take Patrick J. Buchanan, please. (NOTE: The Pink Flamingo does not like linking to World Nut Daily. I will list the URL and you go find it.
“…Indeed, of the last seven justices nominated by Democrats JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, one was black, Marshall; one was Puerto Rican, Sonia Sotomayor. The other five were Jews: Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.
If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats.
They slaughter Christians. They kill Americans. They are currently terrorizing NYC.
They don’t approve of bras. They don’t approve of breasts. They don’t approve of other parts of a woman’s body. They really don’t approve of women at all, yet the Obama Administration does not protest when Iran is put on international committees “protecting” women.
And – we put up with it.Read More
The Pink Flamingo is thinking about drawing a blank circle with a Grocho mask to represent Mohammad. Then again maybe a Kilroy might be good. I’ll come up with something that will be just as respectful as the followers of extreme Islam were on September 11, 2001.
The more people who get involved the greater the impact. Heck, they can’t kill us all, can they? I think it is a wonderful idea, which should have been done years ago!Read More
The other day one of The Pink Flamingo’s email friends was circulating a piece, asking questions about some far right hype about the possibility that Christians would be viewed badly by the Feds and the Pentagon. I assured him this could never happen here.
Perhaps in a nation where we are all to be created equal, there are some who are more equal than others. The Pink Flamingo has very good friends who are Muslims. I do not want to impugn their religion. This is about extremes, blackmail, terror, and cowardly individuals who cave to the worst forces of them all.Read More

One of the few political grown-ups in today’s world is George W. Bush. Do you know what he did over the weekend? The guys at HillBuzz, political grown-ups, had this to say:
“…Well, we told you before how much the current president, Dr. Utopia, made us realize just how wrong we were about Bush. We shudder to think what Dr. Utopia would have done post-9/11. He would have not gone there with a bullhorn and struck that right tone. More likely than not, he would have been his usual fey, apologetic self and waxed professorially about how evil America is and how justified Muslims are for attacking us, with a sidebar on how good the attacks were because they would humble us.
Honestly, we don’t think President Gore would have been much better that day. The world needed George W. Bush, his bullhorn, and his indominable spirit that day…and we will forever be grateful to this man for that.
As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.
The Bushes went and met privately with these families for HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.
If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them at a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.
You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and the other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.
Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the Bush presidency in historical and political terms…but you mess with the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, and you’ll answer to us.
We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person for all they’ve done, and continue to do. They didn’t have to head to Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility….”
Oh, wait. The guys at Hillbuzz are gay. Conservatives are not allowed to like gays, right? The irrational childish haters can do that, but political grown-ups realize that disliking someone because of their personal proclivities is just plain – childish and stupid.
It is becoming more and more apparent that the grown ups are no longer in charge of the political dialogue and the running of this nation. The most perfect example of this is the “blame game” going on in the military and the executive branch over the Fort Hood shooting. The smart thing for Obama to do is blame it on GWB and change the subject.
There is something else The Pink Flamingo wants to mention (duck for cover). It is one of these “adult” things. Not all people who are Muslims are evil. Not all are sociopath, and not all are vile to the point of being demonic. Did you know there are about 3,500 Muslims on active duty in the US military. Did you know:
“…And yet more than 3,500 Muslims have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, according to Defense Department figures provided to The Times. As of 2006, some 212 Muslim-American soldiers had been awarded Combat Action Ribbons for their service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and seven had been killed.
Too many Americans overlook the heroic efforts of Arab-Americans in uniform, said Capt. Eric Rahman, 35, an Army reservist who was awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Iraq at the start of the war. He cited the example of Petty Officer Second Class Michael A. Monsoor, a Navy Seal and practicing Christian of Lebanese and Irish descent who was awarded the Medal of Honor after jumping on a grenade and saving at least three team members during a firefight in 2006, in Ramadi, Iraq….”
Is the debate we are having today about the safety of Muslim members of the armed services any different from the discussion in 1942 about Japanese-Americans fighting in the US Military? At least we’ve learned something from our past mistakes and have not rounded up anyone of that specific religion of nationality and put them into camps like we did the Japanese.
Remember after 9/11 how President Bush cautioned not to retaliate against members of the Islamic faith? The Pink Flamingo will be honest about something. I do not like the fact that self-righteous Islamic women in this country flaunt our freedom and rights by going around “covered” with scarves, robes, and turning themselves into third class citizens. In fact, I resent it.
I don’t like this politically correct culture where we must bend over backward to accomodate their religion and they denigrate mine. Then again, I know of Muslims who have become Christians. I have very dear friends from India who are Muslim. If I heard of anyone discriminating against them because of their religion I would be furious.
I just can’t work up a good hate against someone just because they are Muslim. My sister has a Muslim god-son. We have an “adopted” sister from Bombay who is Muslim. If I thought someone was going to mis-treat the people I love because of their religion, I would become a little nasty myself.
It’s too bad we can’t have a discussion about the fact that of the 2000 mosques in this country only 10% are extremists. There is a song in the Rogers and Hammerstein classic, South Pacific.
Right now, thousands of young Islamic men and women are being taught to hate.Read More
Would someone like to take a chance explaining why the Obama Administration and the State Department have YET to confirm or deny the story that Hillary Clinton was the subject to an al Qaeda plot last month in Kenya?
….If the attempt on Hillary’s life did occurr, and Obama’s Administration can be revealed as having covered up the information, and the MSM is involved in ignoring it, Hillary Clinton may have the 2012 nomination given to her on a silver platter.
Remember: It’s the cover-up that gets you.
I can’t think of any greater punishment to force upon the MSM. They could be forced (sooner than we expect) to admit that George W. Bush was right and their tin god is made of transparent plastic.Read More
