The Disappearance of the American Woman

My girl friend and I got married “last” May 25, 1957.  She was a wonderful young American woman who had a brain.

I had long been worried about ‘love’.  My own parents were married August 21, 1929.  No such couple could have surpassed my dad’s adoration of my Mother, and my Mothers’ love for my dad.   They met during the ballroom dancing competition craze of the early 1920s, at first as competitors and then dance partners.

Mother was also a competitive speed skater.  Dad played competitive softball until he was in his upper 50s.   Middle and upper class women displayed elegance in those days, dressing up to go shopping, wearing beautiful hats “in public”….and never displayed fat.  Americans went to Church in those days.   They reached adulthood at about age 17….and married by age 21…..Divorces were unheard of until after the War was well over.

No one swore in public.  Well learned  adult women, nearly all old maids, were in charge of elementary schools, K through 8th grade in St. Paul, Minnesota where I lived in those days.   The Second World War had just ended.   Edwin Stull and Milton John, survivors of the  front of World War II battle were the first male teachers in our public school.   They were awkward in class,  no match as teachers.   They had only 3 years to study “learnings”  under the GI Bill to help battle front warriors return to real life and earn a living.

At age twelve after my daily afternoon paper route starting in May I began to explore the wider world around my neighborhood.   Real slums existed then in a part of downtown St. Paul.   White families with kids lived along crowded  blocks South of the State Capitol;  Negro families along  crowded blocks East of the same State Capitol.   I was born to explore the world around me.

My path to these communities was the same each time, in all about 20 ‘visits’ that Spring and Summer.  I NEVER was accosted, even worried for a second, never approached by anyone even when I was the only white animal to be seen for blocks.  Fear never entered my mind….After all, I lived in a JudeoChristian country, of the Ten Commandments  I was taught.

I was a boy.  I wanted to explore.  My only worry was to return home before my Mother arrived from work.

Mother worked at my dad’s drug store every day  until 6:30 PM.  I’d finish my afternoon  paper route by four and take a Randolph-Hazel Park streetcar downtown to begin my trek…..walking up Wabasha Avenue to the Capitol, explore the Capitol, and then move on through the Capitol basement to the East exit, where I entered   a different country……an entirely Negro community around Mechanic Arts High School.  For these  twenty visits  that Spring and Summer I explored each time on a dime and “transfer” streetcar fee  for an hour and a half visit and return home before Mom got off work.  (I never got caught!

The culture  was civilized then.  People believed in God and knew the consequences of performing evil.

Eleven years later, I got married to the  valedictorian of her high school, a classmate I met at the University of Minnesota, where she graduated with honors.

Feminism hadn’t been born yet.  There was no Betty Friedan or Gloria Steinem then.   Women, even the young ones, behaved civilized, spoke in high school  like classic  women, not like ditsy broads with their today’s puberty child  giggles performing television news, weather, whatever.  No one wore jeans in school.  Girls wore dresses and weren’t fat slobs.  They studied hard in the same classes as I, got better grades because they were better disciplined.  No one swore yet.   Cheating occurred rarely,  and even then,  almost only among a particular, very competitive group of students and a few girls.   We all learned respect for elders and ‘each other’, or else.

Most importantly we were taught KNOWLEDGE, then.  We were also taught how to be better Americans now living in a world with atomic weapons.

My wife had gone to a similar school system, but in Minneapolis.

We had three wonderful children and then feminism arrived.   We divorced civilly  in our 34th year when the culture began to fall apart.   We both fell apart from each other…..each at fault, alone unto ourselves…..I, an American, she as a feminist.

Feminism is a disorder, a social and sexual disease culturally  come to replace Truth and JudeoChristianity.   Today’s American irreligious  human seems to have slipped back into a more animalistic mass where learning knowledge has been   replaced by feminists’ feelings and moods and TREMENDOUS LOSS OF RESPECT.

Think of all the “women”, the human female animals, American and otherwise, who have claimed sexual “disrespect” from male animals  like Harvey Weinstein to hang around and pretend it was all ‘put upon’…..or the names of six women who 38 years after their claimed event of a males mishandling,  have been awakened by leftist political agents hoping to use them to win elections…A VERY, VERY MODERN DAY, DEMOCRAT PARTY MANEUVER.

The worst mass sexist aggressor in the known American political world is a man named William Jefferson Clinton from Hope, Arkansas, the husband of feminist Hillary, the HERO of the American feminazi movement wing of the Modern American Socialist-Marxist Party recently run by Marxist, black racist political man,  Barack Hussein Obama…..and the overwhelmingly Leftist American press led by PBS, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, the nation’s universities.

Where am I wrong, folks.   Where are the women worth defending and dying for as a class?   any in your neighborhood?….as teachers teaching  in your local elementary and secondary school?…..or at the University of Missouri, at Harvard, at Yale, at California at Berkeley?….. the dozens of  reporters even a Fox who preach feminazi and other extreme rules of fascist future, and those  who act like Howard Kurtz?

A Time When America Was More Beautiful!

When and Why Did Our America Become So Ignorant of Its Past?

Cult of Personality

by John Schroeder  at  Hugh Hewitt Blog:

“In the 1780 Constitution of Massachusetts, John Adams wrote (Part the First, section XXX):

In the government of this Commonwealth, the legislative department shall never exercise the executive and judicial powers, or either of them: The executive shall never exercise the legislative and judicial powers, or either of them: The judicial shall never exercise the legislative and executive powers, or either of them: to the end it may be a government of laws and not of men. [emphasis added]

That phrase, “a government of laws and not of men,” is one of those things that has become cliché through repetition, but is neither cliché nor trite.  It is deeply and importantly meaningful.  Yet I notice that as our culture grows more focused on self, our politics grows more personality based than idea or policy based.  The last presidential election cycle was consumed with personality, as is the continuing media coverage of the presidency.  “I like” or “I don’t like” has replaced “I agree with” or “I do not agree with” in most political discussions I encounter anymore.  (Hmmm, do I detect a Facebook contribution here?)

This trend is troubling – and it is reflected in far more than our politics.  I see it in our churches as well.  I have seen way too many churches built around a pastor die when that pastor moves on in some fashion.  For institutions to survive, whether they be churches or governments or something else, they have to be about more than the people involved at the moment.  There is little doubt in my mind that many of the radical changes that have happened in our culture in my lifetime are due to the fact that our institutions no longer stand as they once did.  They are now often fickle and transient things, driven by a personality rather than something greater than any one person, standing as a bulwark in support of some ideal.

Consider this odd BBC story about the current president of very dictatorial Turkmenistan.  Like North Korea, the nation is only as strong as its leader appears to be.  This necessity to maintain appearances can results in all sorts of issues.  Hence personality driven churches often die in scandal and dictatorships are found, after their death, to be built on tissues of lies.  Simple fact of the matter is mere humans are too frail and too unreliable to base an institution upon.  We need more.

This problem has plagued mankind throughout history.”

Comment:   The feminized  left of today’s American “women’s” movements has made much noise and many threats as it takes over our today’s American education and communication world.  They preach  that life is Godless.  They dictate  the past has been male recorded and therefore evil,  plotted to advance his ego to control his flocks.  Feminists and their nazis insist history must be rewritten in the leftist, feminist nazi manner.

Welcome feminazi America’s “1984”!

Their  ignorance  of our American struggle from the Mayflower episode to today’s racist Obama’s  antiAmerican movement is overwhelming the nation’s culture.  Worse, it is in union with the recent scholastic invasion of the feminists and their feminazi instructors now ruling and corrupting our education, communication and interracial world.

These and other  anti-democratic news orders of our day are given by the rebellious  political and college leaders and  street blacks, thugs, criminals included,  of street feminazis nurtured in the streets or by leftists at college,  blacks and feminazis of all stripes and colors,  the American news industry, from CNN, PBS, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, as well as Fox News, which advertises “fair and balanced” news funneled  through  Chris Wallace and Howard Kurtz.

The above article displayed above at Hugh Hewitt disappeared from the American mind a generation before the Obama’s racist, cultural rebellion days and its invited leftist invasion of 25,000,000 mostly illegal immigrants to guarantee a on Party Soviet type  leftist fascist regime for our once civilized America’s future.

“Human dignity for all” is religious desire, a dream arising from  our American JudeoChristian  story and its historic struggles to become more knowledgeable, therefore more Godfearing to  spread  freedom to expand truth and opportunity in life by accumulating knowledge.  It depends upon the human animal’s innate powerful sense of curiosity to explore the unknown,   and that  the more  “knowledge”  released from people to people stimulates yet further inquiry to expose the unknown……and  become closer to God.

 

Crossing the Trump Rubicon, by Victor Davis Hanson

Crossing the Trump Rubicon

by Victor Davis Hanson at American Greatness:

We are in a veritable war of competing visions. The strife inside the two parties is irrelevant—when compared to the larger existential war for the soul of America.

Like it or not, Donald Trump in fits and starts has chosen not to accommodate the progressive vision. But in most unlikely fashion he leads the fight against it.

Those who found him too crude, who saw his tweets as too adolescent, and who vowed never to vote for such an antithesis of conservative and family values have all weighed in.

So have those who are embarrassed that Trump—as did Obama during the Henry Louis Gates fiasco, the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case, and the Ferguson shooting and subsequent riots—quite inappropriately weighs in on current criminal investigations and trials.

And yet, warts and all, the Trump presidency on all fronts is all that now stands in the way of the completion of what was started in 2009.

The Age of Intolerance

We are no longer in the late 1950s era of liberal reform. It is now a postmodern world of intolerance and lockstep orthodoxy.

There are few Berkeley-like free speech areas on college campuses any more. Students charged with particular crimes enjoy little due process. There is noJoan Baez-style acknowledgement of the tragedy of good Southern poor men fighting for an awful cause. No one acknowledges tragedy anywhere at all; it has all become melodrama. We may yet see Joan Baez’s version of The Band’s ballad or Shelby Foote’s commentaries in Ken Burn’s epic Civil War documentary Trotskyized.

The media is not disinterested. Networks such as CNN see their role actively on the barricades, devoted to the higher cause of destroying the Trump presidency, not as reporting its successes or failures. The danger to free expression and a free media is not even Trumpian bombast. It is the far more deliberate and insidious transformation (begun in full under Obama) of journalism into a progressive ministry of truth. Even if he wished, Trump could not take away what the professional press already surrendered voluntarily.

The Cultural Abyss

After the nocturnal effort to tear down historic statuary, the NFL player psychodramas, the therapeutic reactions to radical Islamic terror attacks inside the United States, and the often unhinged profanity and assassination chic of the anti-Trump “Resistance,” Trump almost alone seems to sound off in opposition.

And while reform and protest may be innate to the American character, traditions and values of the past simply cannot be airbrushed away because a particular generation suddenly believes that the dead of a far more hazardous and impoverished age must meet their own transitory mores of the present.

On one side are traditionalists who believe the United States is the most exceptional nation of a uniquely self-critical West. They believe that we need not be perfect, past or present, to be good and certainly are and were always far better than the alternative. And while reform and protest may be innate to the American character, traditions and values of the past simply cannot be airbrushed away because a particular generation suddenly believes that the dead of a far more hazardous and impoverished age must meet their own transitory mores of the present. Oddly, few of the Republican establishment speak out for them.

The new progressive Left believes that America has always been defined by its collective sins, which outweigh those of other cultures. They identify the white heterosexual male as the font of most pathologies (cf. the Democratic National Committee’sunapologetic effort not to hire white males for some of its jobs). Like it or not, Trump is now a central figure in resisting a full-scale dismantling of the idea of the uniquely individual, free, and outspoken American.

The Economy

Economically, the new progressive party seems either to be uninterested in or of the opinion that it can’t do much about problems such as GDP growth, labor participation rates, industrial output, and increased consumer optimism and confidence—all relatively stagnant in the last few years. Upward mobility is seen as nearly impossible anyway, given the greater need for regulating all manner of commerce. We were warned that a return to a 3 percent economic growth was little more than a right-wing fantasy.

Instead, the new Democratic Party sees the economy as largely static. Indeed, stasis is apparently good for the environment, stops the rich from getting richer, ensures the growth of compensatory entitlements and offers a fixed target for government regulators, wealth redistribution, and identity politics set asides.

Like most neo-socialists, the new progressive party that supplanted the old Democratic Party promotes social justice in relative terms, and not defined by absolute incomes of the middle class.

The new progressivism would prefer an America in which everyone made about $50,000 a year, overseen by a far greater and more intrusive government (of properly insightful and caring souls, whose selflessness would earn exemption from the consequences of their ideologies) to the alternative of a country where a small minority made well over $1 million but the middle classes achieved average incomes of $75,000.

The strange meteoric career of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is illustrative of the anti-Trump agenda: free college tuition, single-payer socialized medicine, an EPA as ultimate arbiter of government regulation, much higher taxes, and greater leeway in reinterpreting the First, Second, and Fourth Amendments to isolate those who would push back against such an agenda.

There is no longer a Democratic workers party akin to something that Hubert Humphrey once championed. or Bill Clinton’s third way Democratic Leadership Council. And there is certainly no longer an old-line Republican establishment that can win Michigan or Pennsylvania or have a shot in Minnesota and Virginia.

Instead, the new Democratic Party sees the economy as largely static. Indeed, stasis is apparently good for the environment, stops the rich from getting richer, ensures the growth of compensatory entitlements and offers a fixed target for government regulators, wealth redistribution, and identity politics set asides.

The Marquess of Queensberry world of John McCain and Mitt Romney has ossified into either one of losing nobly or sort of an “I got mine” assumption that personal money or success will provide familial sanctuary not available to those of Youngstown or West Virginia.

Like Trump or not, by the end of his first three quarters of his presidency, GDP growth had rebounded and was growing at a pace set to achieve 3 percent for the year. Real unemployment (U6) had fallen below 8 percent; business and consumer confidence were at record levels. Energy production was likewise. Manufacturers expressed confidence unlike that seen in the last two decades. Corporate profits were unparalleled. The radical turnabout was largely Reaganesque in spirit—predicated on a new can-do psychological climate, ending insidious deregulation, the specter of impending tax-cuts, and a determination that manufacturing could return to the United States if energy was cheaper than elsewhere and industry had proper incentives. One can see the sudden bustle anywhere one goes.

In sum, the gap between Trumpian conservative economics and progressives is as wide as at any time in American history. The new Democratic Party is the updated vision of Eugene Debs. Its dream is a uniform coastal California culture, a San Francisco of renters and Presidio Heights spreading from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

For now, the unlikely Trump is the only road bump left on such an expressway to a medieval world of masters and peasants with few in between.

National Security

Obama finished off the remnants of the old Scoop Jackson wing of the Democratic Party. The post-Obama years were supposed to be a gateway to the internationalist and globalist world in which transnational agreements such as those of the EU or the Paris climate accord naturally trumped a supposedly blinkered and unenlightened popular plebiscite and their representatives in the national legislature.

The United States, given its past flaws and the blood on its hands, would remain a nominal world leader, but only in the sense of being one among many in a much to be preferred multilateral world that checked historic American aggression. Regional autocratic hegemonies—Shiite Iran in the Middle East, China in the Pacific and most of Asia, a reset Russia in the Eastern Europe, and new “moderate” socialist countries in Latin America—would naturally oversee their own neighborhoods, albeit with occasional nods to U.N. mandates on energy, the environment, and “human rights.”

Again, by mid-2017 Trump offered about the only alternative vision of an all-powerful United States, in Jacksonian fashion protecting its own classically liberal interests and those of its allies abroad, often by punitive deterrence rather than hearts-and minds-nation building,

God Bless Dennis Prager

Today is  early winter in Minnesota.  It snowed a few inches with the temperatures hovering around 31 degrees at night and 34 daytime.  I have a half acre landscape garden to tend to before the real snow and cold come to roost.

I am a total believer in what has happened in life was meant to happen.   I am a total believer in the mystery of God (“good”), if you prefer.   “There is neither good, nor bad,” the ancient adage dictates…”Only thinking makes it so!”…..the curious ancient Greeks, I was told early in my life, advertised  the point.

I was also a school child of the Second World War.  Keep this in mind when I refer to the topic below of today’s Dennis Prager’s lesson in American life.

Patriotism was keen and active in those days, the war years.  Seventeen year old boys were disappearing from the home front on their way to the Pacific or Great Britain.  My first window of awareness came in June, 1942 with the arrival of the battle of Midway, when I began to read newspapers, beginning with headings….such as “Major Battle Waging at Midway”….on the front page of a Sunday St. Paul Pioneer Press that month.  A seventeen year old cousin of mine, Dale Chapin, (actually a step-uncle, a son of my step-grandmother, Bertha…..my own grandmother had died years before I was born)  had joined the Navy and had already been sent off to the Pacific front.  Death was very common among families in those days.

I couldn’t read novels, but I sure could read cutlines, maps, headlines,  paragraphs and stories about the war fronts.   Dale’s older brother, Roy, was already sailing on some warship out in the Far East.   “Snowbound”, a true short story about Norway children salvaging gold from their  Nazis occupiers, was read to the class.   A pledge of allegiance “to the flag” was recited every school day with pride and hope, when  Minnesota  school days were always open when scheduled, even when the mornings were 28 degrees Fahrenheit below zero…or worse.

Dennis was at his very  best today….both in delivery and content….for all three hours of broadcast….identifying the evils of our recent decade of leftist  Obama world assault on our  freedom of expression and thought established and long time cherished  by   the Godfearing founders of the American REPUBLIC.

And then there came Obama-crime’s dismantling of things American with the invasion of nearly 30,000,000 immigrants political and/or illegal to cause a leftist revolution to destroy the industry, the freedoms, the ideas and ideals American!

I was in the sixth grade, the class with a gifted teacher, Miss Koeneman, in charge, age forty going on seventy in appearance in those days.  (I am positive she was sympathetic to Hitler’s Germany at one time.   She visited the country on two occasions in the early 1930s  and had collected spectacular black and white slides of pre-war Nazi parades and festivities which she showed to the class….I think to remind us of “better days” of life….Allied troops were already closing in on the Third Reich itself.

Dennis preached the difference between a republican and democratic form of governing, the lesson I learned in that Miss Koeneman’s sixth grade class.

Our forefathers were devoted to the  stability of free expression, not its violence.   Democracy, that is,  government by the dictate of the majority, does not ensure a people’s  free expression to solve problems in the most Godlike manner.  Rule by people shouldn’t come from ones  feelings of the day or hour, but from established law based upon  knowledge and truth achieved by deep thought and study  by a Godfearing population.

We Americans then, were supposed to study to become more learned so we could solve our problems and secure our successes more fulfilling, more Godlike.

The Obama Democrat Party today is a gathering of very leftist feminist and racist hysterics…of all sexes, colors, shapes and sizes who reek of feelings rather than  pursuit of knowledge and Truth.

It is the natural emotional response of the female human animal who demands security uber alles by instinct….. a human animal born to bear children, NOT born to hunt and kill, nor  to invent and discover, to  problem solve, to build, explore, to defend, protect,  wonder, and to kill, if deemed necessary…….but, to seek security and peace at all costs to raise her children to maturity,  primarily by instinct.

The human male animal  is born a killer.   The human female animal  is born ditsy.  It has been  our western, our American, our JudeoChristian male and female  belief that through learning and knowledge,   we homo sapiens will best, most humanly    survive as civilized, as learned, as Godfearing, as Godlike  as possible,  as long as the human animal  exists…after all, we are thinking animals with a living conscience.

In today’s femi- leftist America,  learning knowledge or having a conscience is considered old time and sexist male.   Feminists of all sexes, shapes, colors, and sizes insist their feelings must now dominate humanity forever more….”until wisdom is rediscovered” anyway, if there’s still time.

Alan Dershowitz, 2017

I am sure Alan Dershowitz is in his 80s.  I have had to put up with his obnoxious loudmouth salesmanship and temper selling  fascistic leftism since my 30s….He pretended to be a Democrat “Liberal” when dictating at the so-called American Civil Liberties Union, which I confess I used to donate to  during my “university” youth learning days about Communism practiced home and abroad.  Eventually,  I earned a graduate degree in Soviet Studies and had learned Russian and USSR’s horrible Communism.

I traveled to the Soviet Union on a National Defense Education Act in 1966 when that nation was still a first class police state, and in 1990  as an interpreter for a local Twin City Christian group which had raised nearly  a million dollars to aid victims of the atomic disaster at Chernobyl not far from Kiev in the Ukraine when the nooses around the citizens’ necks were beginning to loosen up and even disappear…..yet nothing had yet collapsed for fifty or more tanks were neatly and openly gathered only a mile from my hotel in Kiev.

That hotel had just been built and opened…..In unfree USSR such hotels were not scheduling local customers, only foreigners who could return home to advertise how modern the Soviet Union had become.   My room was on the eleventh floor (of maybe 15 floors) and was ‘modernly’ reached by a single  four passenger elevator!

On my fourth day in Kiev, the elevator died and remained dead for the rest of my two week visit there.

On about my sixth day   one early morning while shaving at the sink in my room, I hear a horde of whistles, blown in cadence outside through my permanently closed window eleven floors above the street …..the kind American high school sports coaches   wear around their necks and blow to get attention.

Life in this  successful dictatorship was quite programmed for everyone.   One did not chat much  outdoors.  If a chat occurred it was very, very quiet whether shopping, walking through a park or any place else.    This noise was something else!

I knew it immediately.   With shaving lotion still on my face, I ran down all eleven floors of stairs, for the whistles were now being blown in cadence.   There had to be thousands of whistles.  Something had to be happening in a nation devoted to silence.   I had to know and see what was going on!

Some kind of a revolt had arrived.   Thousands upon thousands of people, mostly males, were shoulder to shoulder, twenty and more abreast marching from my right to left clogging more than one street, each with a whistle blown in rhythm.   The sidewalks were jammed with people watching the spectacle as surprised as I was.  Some observers  joined in the marshal  walk where space permitted.  No one I talked to knew what was going on  any more than I did except they noted nothing official was being celebrated.

I found a street lamp I could climb up on to be secure and take pictures at a good angle with my camera…..after others were doing so just to watch sans camera.

I would have been arrested in 1966 for doing so….without a doubt.  Some poor college kid from Arkansas had taken an ashtray from a Soviet hotel that summer for a souvenir to take home.   He was arrested, roughed up a bit and sent to jail for a year…..to send a message to all in a Soviet Union and its visitors.

Before noon, I learned the thousands of whistlers had marched to the Communist government headquarters in Kiev and surrounded it.   I did not know Ukrainian the language,  although Ukrainians had to know Russian.    I wore Soviet clothes.  I bought them the first day in the USSR….black baggy pants, white baggy shirt was all I needed to blend in.  I wanted to control to whom I spoke.   The secret police were everywhere during my first visit in 1966.  No one spoke much in public then.

From then on,  evening rain or no rain, it was early October, every evening THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT, thousands of Ukrainians gathered before dusk and began their ‘chants’ about horrors in their Soviet  past….each, a wife, a brother, a son, a friend in a ritual,  thrust an arm to the sky holding a picture, two or three, one at a time  naming their family or friend  victims of Soviet murder who disappeared never again to be seen by family and friends….many announcing the date and hour, or the circumstance and location of their last day of known life.   I stood in that park area every night the rest of the week  until three o’clock AM,  holding back tears in contrast to the  hard faces and cold anger of those   telling their story in paragraph time to the silent others waiting their turn to share their woe.

I am sure Alan Dershowitz didn’t speak Russian then ….nor did he visit the USSR as I did, yet he seemed to be very arrogant selling Soviet life for America in those days..

….those times when America was free, JudeoChristian, tolerant, and facing its democratic and religious responsibilities to put and end to the Democratic Party’s Southern racial segregation and begin its JudeoChristian duties to bring Negro and white America united together as families,  brothers and sisters.

Today’s enemy of freedom in America is Alan Dershowitz’s sculptured sexist, racist, socialist Democrat Party, the one financed by famous Communist, George Soros.

And yet, may God Bless Alan Dershowitz for discovering the goodness and greatness in Our Donald despite the builder’s  New York eccentricities.  Alan even speaks like an American dedicated to truth and freedom these days.  Mr. Dershowitz lawyers up with the professional NFL football war against America below.  Please read on:

“Nothing Sounds as Beautiful as the MUSLIM EVENING PRAYERS FROM THE TOWER” = Barack Obama

Arlene and Bruce Taber sent the following history lesson regarding Islam’s war against Christianity and the West….consistent in content with the history course I studied at the University of Minnesota to date in 1974.
I am not sure history of anything is taught truthfully at the fake news University of Minnesota these days.   Feminists, atheists, fascist blacks, Islamists, Marxists, Communists have been hired to sell their hate white man  fantasies to make their fascist world more equal:
.
The War started in the 7th Century and lasted through the 17th Century.
Many will contend it never stopped;
In 732 A.D., the Muslim Army,
which was moving on Paris, was Defeated and turned
back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell.
In 1571 A.D., the Muslim Army/Navy was defeated
by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the
Mediterranean to Attack Southern Europe
in the Battle of Lepanto.
In 1683 A.D., the Turkish Muslim Army,
Attacking Eastern Europe,
was finally Defeated in the Battle of Vienna
by German and Polish Christian Armies.
The following events are true historical facts.
.
… History keeps repeating itself.
1. In 1968,
Robert Kennedy was Shot
and Killed by a Muslim Male.
2. In 1972,
at the Munich Olympics, Israeli Athletes
were Kidnapped and Massacred by Muslim Males.
3. In 1972,
a Pan Am 747 was Hijacked
and eventually Diverted to Cairo
where a Fuse was lit on Final Approach.
Shortly after Landing, it was Blown up by Muslim Males.
