|Nov-22-17|| ||optimal play: <Ex-Muslims speak out about leaving Islam - but fear they may be KILLED if they do so>|
<A number of Muslims living in Australia are leading secret double lives as they try to break away from their religion.
One 25-year-old woman was born into a Muslim family and told The Feed she wants to leave the religion, but fears she would be disowned or 'worst case ... murdered'.
'I want to take my hijab off,' the woman said.
'I feel so trapped. I'm terrified of someone finding out I'm ex-Muslim, I feel like I'm carrying around a ticking time bomb.'
The 25-year-old is one of many Muslims trying to escape the religion through a private ex-Muslim network.
The woman said she had been physically abused by her parents and was forced to practice the religion while honor killings and sexual assault were also common.
'I couldn't understand how Islam was teaching me to hate myself, finding this secret group of ex-Muslims saved my life, literally,' the 25-year-old said.>
There's your Islam!
But of course Zanzy and his gang of Islamofascists will just be further angered by this continued exposure of the truth!
|Nov-22-17|| ||saffuna: Can I be part of <zanzy>'s gang of Islamofascists? I'm feeling left out.|
|Nov-22-17|| ||al wazir: <Tens of thousands of people wanted by law enforcement officials have been removed this year from the FBI criminal background check database that prohibits fugitives from justice from buying guns.|
The names were taken out after the FBI in February changed its legal interpretation of “fugitive from justice” to say it pertains only to wanted people who have crossed state lines.
What that means is that those fugitives who were previously prohibited under federal law from purchasing firearms can now buy them, unless barred for other reasons.> https://www.washingtonpost.com/worl...
This Thanksgiving we can all be thankful that Trump is doing his best to make America safe for fugitives from justice.
Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling, doesn't it?
|Nov-22-17|| ||zanzibar: More from that *other* Islamofascist...
< I do not believe it is right to identify Islam with violence. This is not right or true. I had a long conversation with the imam, the Grand Imam of the Al-Azhar University, and I know how they think . . . They seek peace, encounter . . . >
Can you believe it?! This guy actually talked to a Muslim - no wonder he's so confused.
<oPaulinePlaytus>, will set him straight, no doubt. Or dear <OCF>.
|Nov-22-17|| ||saffuna: I suppose he's more of an Islamodupe.|
|Nov-22-17|| ||zanzibar: <opty> don't you feel ashamed?|
Nah, I know the answer to that.
Anyways, you conveniently edited out the woman's major complaint about Islam - it's not the fear of being murdered for leaving the faith, but rather the fact that she's 25-years old
<and has never had ALCOHOL.> (How is that even possible!?!)
Now, skeptical though I am, that is indeed a sin, not to mention a life squandered.
OK, for the journalist fascists - here's the #realtitle of the piece:
<'I'm 25, I've never had alcohol and I want to take my hijab off': ...
The 25-year-old claims she has not drunk alcohol, listened to music, felt wind on her skin, watched movies, dated or danced.
Of course, the Daily prominently provides us with a link to *alcohol*:
whereupon we learn of this astounding fact:
<Jelly [i.e.jello -for the yanks] made of alcohol could help kill off cancer: Implant releases ethanol to destroy tumour cells>
And there's also this article:
<Will YOUR partner cheat at the office Christmas party? Tracey Cox reveals the 10 warning signs that suggest he could succumb to temptation (and how to tell if he went through with it)>
Whose alcohol connection is somehow escaping me. Let me crack a cold one and ponder on it for a few minutes.
|Nov-22-17|| ||zanzibar: <opty>'s main news source = The Daily Mail.|
Seems about right.
|Nov-22-17|| ||zanzibar: I got a little curious about who produced the content in Pauline's Daily News piece - it turns out the it's from The Feed's ViceLand franchise.|
Who is ViceLand - well, it's a fairly recent rebranding, from 2016, that's from Spike Jonz.
Here's an indication of the journalistic standard it adopts:
<Creative director Spike Jonze stated that his goal for Viceland was to make its lineup have "a reason to exist and a strong point of view", rather than be just a "collection of shows".
"And if it doesn't have a strong point of view, then it shouldn't be on this channel." [Jonz again]
Jonze stated that unlike the HBO content, Viceland would be
<"far from objective [reporting]".>
* * * * *
<opty> you're being played.
PS- That *other* Islamofascist? The Pope.
|Nov-22-17|| ||Bobsterman3000: <saffuna: Can I be part of <zanzy>'s gang of Islamofascists? I'm feeling left out.>|
You are disqualified, as that requires actually knowing something about Islam before shooting your mouth off on the subject...

Which of course disqualifies Jim from every topic he's weighed into on this forum.
Anyway, the irony of the Rogoff forum's Chief Islamic Policeman quoting Bergoglio to support his demand that no criticism of Islam be mentioned here is exceeded only by his wilful ignorance in rejecting the first-hand account of the reality of honour killings described by Rifqa Bary in her own family and local Ohio mosque.
|Nov-23-17|| ||HeMateMe: television is weird. Turn on Fox news. It looks completely different than the news being shown on other tv stations, a whole different set of headlines. I had no idea what some of these stories were about. Several mentions of Hillary Clinton [Isn't she retired?]. It also looks mostly different than the headlines in print, the newspapers.|
MSNBC notes that Trump spent 28 days this year at Mara a lago, though in all fairness a few of those days were spent hosting the Chinese and Japanese leaders.
|Nov-23-17|| ||saffuna: Can I be an Islamocommunist then?|
|Nov-23-17|| ||saffuna: Hey <bob>, can you point out where you said Arpaio is a gimmick/huckster? All I find is you complaining he was defeated by out-of-state money.|
|Nov-23-17|| ||Colonel Mortimer: <saffuna> <Turn on Fox news. It looks completely different than the news being shown on other tv stations, a whole different set of headlines.>|
Turn on alternative media, and it looks completely different to the MSM propaganda feed, to wit..
*JFK archive confirms existence of false flag plan to start war with USSR*
<The CIA suggested acquiring original Soviet aircraft either through pilot defection or by buying them from a non-member of the Warsaw Pact, the document said. It also presented three scenarios in which the ‘Soviet’ warplanes could be used, including operations to confuse enemy planes in the air or attack enemy installations, and “a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack US or friendly installations to provide an excuse for US intervention.”>
RT dares report facts you won't see in the NYT. That doesn't make RT a better source of news, but it does mean RT shows another perspective.
That's healthy in any democracy that wishes to stand tall to its own ideals.

people lined up to escape to the west mort?
|Nov-23-17|| ||Colonel Mortimer: <HeMateMe> <people lined up to escape to the west mort?>|
Well Snowden had to seek asylum in Russia for revealing how the United Stasi of America illegally spies on and monitors Americans.
Under Obama, whistle blowers were prosecuted and jailed on an unprecedented scale. So much for Stars & Stripes democracy, Beavis.
|Nov-23-17|| ||HeMateMe: that sure is a powerful argument, Mort. If New Zealand were closer to Asia you'd be inundated with Orientals boating over your way. You'd be on the shore with a pitchfork, the first guy to say "Stay home!"|
|Nov-23-17|| ||Colonel Mortimer: <HeMateMe: that sure is a powerful argument, Mort>|
Not as powerful as the avoidance argument you just posted, Beavis.
|Nov-23-17|| ||HeMateMe: so what happens in New Zealand if a military officer gives away important secrets? Or, is this irrelevant because New Zealand's military doesn't have any important secrets?|
|Nov-23-17|| ||Colonel Mortimer: <HeMateMe: so what happens in New Zealand if a military officer gives away important secrets?>|
You don't live in New Zealand, so your concern is why the government of the people, by the people, for the people, is imprisoning the people when the people reveal covert anti-constitutional actions.
It's your country, Beavis.
|Nov-23-17|| ||perfidious: <Colonel....your concern is why the government of the people, by the people, for the people, is imprisoning the people when the people reveal covert anti-constitutional actions....>|
Democracy in action, baby!!
|Nov-23-17|| ||Colonel Mortimer: <perfidious:> lol|
|Nov-23-17|| ||Colonel Mortimer: *Facebook opens special ‘Russia portal’ to help safeguard US democracy*|
<Panicked about your feed getting hijacked by ‘Russian trolls’? Facebook’s got you covered, with a new tool that will allow users to check if the Kremlin messed with their minds during last year’s US presidential election.
The move is part of the social media giant’s “continuing transparency of Russian activity” and efforts to protect users from “bad actors who try to undermine our democracy,” the company said in a statement Wednesday.>
What would normally be a headline in the "Onion", turns out to be astonishingly true.
And I'm sure it's not just <Bartle> who's buying the Koolaid.
My advice? Before you go to sleep at night, check under the bed for Reds.
|Nov-23-17|| ||Colonel Mortimer: Fake News..
*Spain sees Russian interference in Catalonia separatist vote*
<BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Madrid believes Russian-based groups used online social media to heavily promote Catalonia’s independence referendum last month in an attempt to destabilize Spain, Spanish ministers said on Monday.>
<No Moscow-linked intrusion was detected during the Catalonia crisis, Spain’s cyber intelligence unit has announced. Earlier, Madrid decried cyber attacks as part of Russia’s alleged wider online effort to support Catalan independence.>
Whereas the former is widely reported in the mainstream media, particularly for propaganda purposes in Washington and London. The latter is reviled, suppressed and censored by Washington and London.
When governments start suppressing the truth and overtly lying, you may as well say goodbye to democracy folks, if all you're going to do is gulp the Koolaid you've been instructed to imbibe.
