Civil War – when the Left/Democrats can’t even support our own Law?

by Skip

The Left screams about “cultural appropriation” all the time – but why do they throw OUR culture away any time it collides with another?

Shades of Ruth Bader-Ginsburg writ small and sideways. All over the Right side of the blogosphere I keep hearing whispers “are we heading towards a civil war”? It is quite obvious that this nation is split and I would agree that the crevice is becoming a chasm.  The Right is going back to our American roots (e.g., the Constitution and the philosophy underpinning it) and the Left is insistent on adhering on latching on to foreign political ideas (again, what IS the difference between Democrats and Socialists).  Our moralities are different (Judeo-Christian vs “if it feels good / anything BUT Judeo-Christian), our sense of independence / dependency is incompatible, our outlook on The Proper Role of Government are in different galaxies, and now – our Law (reformatted, emphasis mine):

Montana Democrats Vote Against Bill Banning Sharia Law, Call It ‘Repugnant’

Democrats in Montana have opposed a bill banning the use of foreign law in its state courts on the grounds that such legislation would target Muslims. Senate Bill 97, introduced by Keith Regier (R-Kalispell) bans the application of foreign law in Montana’s courts, with the debate particularly focused on Sharia Law, a form of Islamic law typically used in the Middle East.

Although the bill passed on party lines by 56-44, Democrats claimed it was designed to target Muslim communities.

“I think it sends a dangerous message to minority groups both here living in our state and wanting to come visit our state, just merely on the fact that you may be different,” said Rep. Shane Morigeau, D-Missoula, while debating the bill. “I truly believe this law is repugnant. I believe this is not who we are as Montanans.”

WHAT is so dangerous about American system adhering to American ideals and law?

Well, it isn’t who we are as Americans, either.  My stand is that American courts should ONLY consider what is lawful under American Law. If a “minority” wishes to come to and be an American, then integrate and assimilate and that means acceptance of our culture, our way of life, our forms of governance, our societal norms – and our Law.  If you wish to live under another judicial system, go ahead and leave to live in countries where Sharia Law IS the law of the land. Pretty much any Muslim majority nation is highly structured around Shariah Law – if that’s what toasts your cookies, go with my blessings.

However, this is another area that has fallen into the chasm.  Integrate into our melting pot or just be that 3-D tossed salad in which multiculturalism demands that other cultures be held in higher esteem than our own?

Once again, we have a bright shiny distinction between those of us that live American ideals and those that are rather anti-American ideals.

And this was just petty:

Meanwhile, Rep. Ellie Hill Smith (D-Missoula) proposed a failed amendment to the bill to include a ban on both Sharia Law and the Law of Moses, in order to “show the state of Montana that it is not just about Islamic Law.”

“The courts have said that laws that single out certain religions violate the First Amendment,” Smith said, claiming that it was “peppered with anti-Muslim bigotry.” Another Democrat, Rep. Laurie Bishop (D-Livingston) urged legislators “not to forget the roots of this bill,” adding that “our children are watching.”

Yeah, telling them that ours is not worth a dang – surrender to that other culture. Sharia Law is not a “religion” per se.  It IS, however, a legal framework of behavior and punishment that is a part of a political system.  We’ve often said that, unlike Christianity, Islam is a political ideology wrapped up in religious trappings.  Doubt me?  Go do your homework and study how Muslim majority nations govern themselves  (hey, here’s two easy ones – Iran and Saudi Arabia). And no, Christianity and Islam are not compatible no matter how many COEXIST bumper stickers you have on your car.

Meanwhile, Rep. Brad Tschida (R-Missoula) said the bill was an attempt to push back against a “constitution [that] is constantly under assault.”

Bills specifically targeting Sharia Law have passed in states such as North Carolina, Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Tennessee. The bill will now be passed on to Gov. Steve Bullock (D) for signature or veto.

Funny, Democrats are the FIRST to scream from the roof tops of “Separation of church and State!!!”.  Here, seemingly, Democrats are all too willing to embrace one that is incompatible with our basic principles.

BTW, what’s the over under that Bullock will veto it?

(H/T: Big Government)

    I’m not aware of any elected Democrats who are willing to go against party line in matters such as this so I’m going to bet he will veto it. And this is a biggy.

    The answer to the question that runs like a current under your post Skip is; Yes, it is inevitable….we are eventually going to have to figure out how to divide this country. Peacefully if possible. However, if the Left blocks our way then all bets are off.
    I have said it before and I will say it again…the United States is tantamount to a ‘marriage’ between individual States and our Constitution is like a marriage license.
    We have now entered the stage where it has become apparent that we are in an abusive marriage. The Left will not acquiesce and accept the results of a lawful election and are using threats of violence and actual violence against Conservatives. We must summon the courage to grab our children and leave the house for our own safety.
    No matter what we have to do….we must get through that door to safety…..if not for ourselves..then for the sake of our children.
    There will be no peace for us otherwise…if we are lucky.
    If we are unlucky…if the Left ever regains power again they will finish Conservatives off for sure.

    • A Mormon marriage? 50 partners?

        LoL! Good 1 Mike.

        As the resident member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I would remind you that the Mormon church has not practiced polygamy in over 100 years. Attempting to practice it today will get you excommunicated. So please, if you are going to joke about someone’s religion, please make it about another. Israeli Jews or Muslim Arabs would work.

            Yeah, no.
            “Polygamous groups and individuals in and around Utah often cause confusion for casual observers and for visiting news media. The polygamists and polygamist organizations in parts of the western United States and Canada have no affiliation whatsoever with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, despite the fact that the term “Mormon” — widely understood to be a nickname for Latter-day Saints — is sometimes incorrectly applied to them.”

      It won’t be peaceful I can assure you of that. There are lots of combat arms veterans who won’t stand to let it happen.

  • Assimilate or die, because eventually, a lawless cult with no respect for our laws, and more importantly, our constitution, will come into existential conflict with Citizens who wish to be left alone by it.

      “Assimilate or die, because eventually, a lawless cult with no respect for our laws, and more importantly, our constitution, will come into existential conflict with Citizens who wish to be left alone by it.”
      Bingo! And this is exactly the mindset the South had that laid the groundwork for the Civil War. Not that I am comparing the Confederacy to the Constitutional Conservatives of today, but what I am saying is that history repeats itself and those that refuse to learn from it are destined to repeat it.
      The fight always comes down to this….people that wish to be left alone and those that wish to exert their will on others.
      This time…there are no ‘other people (slaves)’ that are being affected by Conservatives wanting to be on their own unlike the Confederacy.
      The Left should understand that this time..the might of the US Government may be on the side of Conservatives and not on the side of the antagonistic Left.

      • Don

        You might want to consider that constitutional conservatives are running out of places to move to. Eventually you have to fight back or go the way of the dodo.

    Missoula is a college town. Two Reps mentioned hail from there (And possibly NY before that.)
    Children led by Leftists.
    Just like any other college town. It supplies a certain type of juvenile/socialist representative to a legislature.

  • OldNHMan

    Interesting. I wonder how those oh so Progressive lawmakers would like to be tried under a foreign law that allows them to be hanged or beheaded for their treachery?
