Three million and counting – that’s about how many Muslims are in the United States. It is predicted that in 15 years there will be six million and counting.
Like many Americans I do fear this coming explosion. In fact, I have learned that there is one city in the United States where they have already taken over. That is in Hamtramck, Michigan.
I believe the more Muslims we let into our country the better off we will be as a nation. Now I’m not afraid of Muslim terrorists in America. I just do not believe there are many, if any. We’ve had very few. Many of the terrorist plots we were told about have been the creation of the FBI. I will explain my reasoning in a subsequent post why we are better off as a nation to have more Muslims than less.
But I have to admit I do fear that there is a chance we may be going back to what happened in America during 1919. Those familiar with American history will know that 1919 was the year that brought us the Red Terror, the death of Teddy Roosevelt, the Red Summer when the streets of some cities ran red with the blood of whites and blacks, the great murderous Boston molassecre, our president, Woodrow Wilson, who has now fallen out of favor at Princeton College where he was their president before becoming ours, who started out of the year riding through Europe to high cheers and acclaim for his role in ending WWI and ended the year being bed ridden with a stroke and in effect we had our first woman president, Edith Bolling Galt Wilson, who would communicate with him in private and pass on all the decisions for the nation, along with the Boston police strike where the Irish cops were summarily fired, the letter from Vladimir Lenin to the American worker, the women’s suffrage act passed in Congress, the establishment of the Communist Party in America and the elevation of 24 year old J. Edgar Hoover to head the Justice Department’s General Investigative Division among other monumental happenings.
Many of those were bad but by far the worst thing that happened in 1919 was the passage of the Volstead Act also known as the National Prohibition Act. The country was about to go dry. The act provided: “no person shall manufacture, sell, barter, transport, import, export, deliver, or furnish any intoxicating liquor except as authorized by this act.”
Now, with the Muslims taking over that city I read that: “Business owners within 500 feet of one of Hamtramck’s four mosques can’t obtain a liquor license.”
I was uncertain why that was. I had read of some poor 74-year-old English bloke being sentenced to 350 lashes for having some homemade wine in his car in Saudi Arabia. I knew that Saudi Arabia practiced a very severe form of Islam called Wahhabism which was behind the beliefs of Osama bin Laden and perhaps by extension ISIS. But I did not know whether other Muslims frowned on alcohol
So I checked this about Islam. I found out that Muslims take: “an uncompromising stand towards alcohol and forbids its consumption in either small or large quantities. Alcohol . . . clouds the mind, causes disease, wastes money, and destroys individuals, families and communities. Researchers have proven that there is a strong link between alcohol and gambling.” According to Islam, “God tells us in the Quran that intoxicants and gambling are abominations from Satan and orders us to avoid them.”
I cannot say I disagree with the Muslim belief in the dangers of alcohol. I assume that was the same belief that motivated the Women’s Christian Temperance Movement which led to the 18th Amendment outlawing alcohol. Back in 1921 it had a membership of almost 350,000 women. But the grand experiment in outlawing alcohol proved a disaster in this country and it was repealed. Some say the women were motivated in enacting it by the belief that by closing the bars the men would spend more time at home with them and the children; but when that happened many women supported the repeal because they looked back on the days when their men spent their time in the bars as far happier times.
Thinking that about 1/3rd of a million women could cause us to go dry I wondered about the effect of 3 to 6 million Muslims. We should stop worrying about Muslim terrorism. We should start worrying about where we will get our next beer if we let too many Muslims into our country without first ascertaining whether they will let the rest of us imbibe.
