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.
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.

The Pink Flamingo was actually on time for the Wednesday 5:30 service today. (I had Altar Guild). The Feast Day of the Nativity of John the Baptist is on the 25th, exactly 6 months before Christmas. Our most excellent new priest, Judy Burgess, had a great little homily about John the Baptist. (In all fair disclosure, I picture John the Baptist as Newt Gingrich, the voice crying in the wilderness).
The message of today was that John the Baptist repeatedly told everyone he was not The One to Come, that he as a messenger, but not the Messiah. He had no problem being number two, of not being the important one. He was strong enough to know that there was another, the Messiah. The lesson is that there are men and women who are capable of being number two because they know being number two is important.
My father always said if you have an employee who thinks they are indispensable, fire ‘em before they ruin your business. It looks like Obama needs to can McCrystal. Sorry, but I’m taking Obama’s side here. He is the Commander-in-Chief, no matter how we dislike it. You don’t show this amount of disrespect and not expect to be job hunting in the very near future.
The man voted for Obama! He now apparently is pitting Hillary against Obama.
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.
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!
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.
“For all who love freedom and peace,
the world without Saddam Hussein’s regime is a better and safer place.”
If former Iraq prime minster Ayed Allawi beat out current prime minster, Mouri al-Maliki, in what appears to be a half-way decent election, even by Florida standards, is George W. Bush the real winner?

Webster defines the word CONUNDRUM as the following:
“a: a question or problem having only a conjectural answer b : an intricate and difficult problem”
We are dealing with an increasingly probable tale about a very brave woman, the possibility that Al Qaeda wants her dead, a possible military response to the thwarted attack on her, and silence from both the right and the left.
What gives? Stacy at the Madam Secretary Blog mentions the fact that maybe the intel community wants to keep the tale under wraps. That makes sense, but after awhile isn’t better just to come clean?
Conundrum is the perfect word for the problem in dealing with the August, 2009 Al Qaeda attempt on Hillary Clinton’s life in Nairobi. It is the perfect word for dealing with the after-effects, the Obama Administration response, and the continued Obama Administration response to “terror”.
Would someone please explain to The Pink Flamingo just why the State Department, White House, and the MSM are neither confirming or denying the fact that al Qaeda attempted to kill Hillary Clinton while she was in Kenya in August.
It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that the Dems, esp. the Obama Administration and their MSM flunkies do not seem to react all that favorably toward women who may be in power some day. In fact, when one considers how Hillary Clinton has been treated as Secretary of State (the now invisible cabinet post) compared to Condi Rice, something just isn’t kosher here. Look at how Sarah Palin has been treated.
The Pink Flamingo wrote:
“…If she was targeted and Onsarigo revealed the story, the Obama Administration did not react fast enough. If it is true, they should be all over it, condemning the terrorists and thanking the security forces who prevented a horrific incident. No matter how one feels about Hillary Clinton, as the Secretary of State, a former US Senator, and the former First Lady of the United States, she deserves a tremendous amount of respect and consideration. To ignore a threat, if it occured reflects badly on the Obama Administration...”
Anyone who has followed the Hillary assassination attempt and the Obama Administration’s complete “ignorance” of it, should not be surprised over their reaction to the Hot Pants Bomber . Rick Moran has an interesting take. I’m not sure which way to go on this, but I don’t know if incompetence is the whole thing.
Are we dealing with incompetence, complacency, stupidity, or a group of people who are so pathetic in their hatred of all things George W. Bush that they would rather allow Americans to lose their lives than admit he was right?
