Insane Jihadi Fundamentalists

I was going to add the Fox News YouTube video below to my last post, but forgot to.

At 0:27 seconds into it, a tired-looking Hillary Clinton says:

“I really deplore the tone of his campaign, and the inflammatory rhetoric that he is using to divide people. His bigotry, his bluster, his bullying, have become his campaign. And he has to keep sort of upping the stakes and going even further.”

I first saw this video a few days ago, and at the time I was shocked at how tired and dispirited and woeful she seemed. And yet the battle with Trump hasn’t really started yet. If he becomes the Republican presidential candidate, she’s going to be toe-to-toe with him for the next 10 months.

I get the feeling that she expected she would be up against someone like Mitt Romney or John McCain – known quantities. Instead she looks set to be up against Godzilla. And she’s not ready for it.

Anyway, seeing that video told me that she simply hasn’t got what it takes to defeat Trump.

From Dick Puddlecote’s latest link tank:

Some health campaigners are now talking about an “endgame” for tobacco. They’ve moved on from trying to cut deaths from smoking, and believe they’re now within a few years of being able to eliminate tobacco completely. This isn’t just unrealistic to the point of being delusional; it shows a frightening willingness to impose their beliefs on other people, and the same extremism is quickly expanding beyond tobacco control. Health activism is becoming health jihad, and that should worry us all.

I’m glad to see somebody else calling it a ‘jihad’. The author then adds that if they think that they can create a tobacco-free world by 2040, they’re “insane”. He ends with:

You have become a fundamentalist, like the people who shoot at Planned Parenthood clinics or throw Syrian gays off roofs. And you need to stop.

So now we’ve got “insane jihadi fundamentalists”.

He’s quite right, of course. That’s exactly what they are. And the more people who see it, the better.

But they’re not going to stop of their own accord.

They’re going to have to be stopped.

    Trumph is no better than the insane jihadi fundamentalists. The people who love him are extreme right wing terrorists who have killed more in the US than Islamist’s have in the last 13 years.

    • Roobeedoo2 says:

      Why stop at 13 years? Why not go back a little further than 2003?

      Don’t you think… *considers whether to continue* Don’t you think that you’re doing exactly in your comment is what you accuse Donald Trump’s supporters of doing? Tarring a whole disparate group of people with one blood soaked ideology? What, you can do it but nobody else can?

      Don’t forget we’re mostly smokers on here – we know what it’s like to be tarred as agents of death ;)

    • Harleyrider1978 says:

      Then I guess I’m a right wing but that kills babies facing Mecca in mosques everyday.
      You know it probably wouldn’t bother me much either knowing they’d just be raised to be crazed suicidal bombers later on.

      But then wasn’t it Bloomy who bought and paid the clerics for a religious war on smokers. Leading to all quieda,ISIS and many other radicals to behead smokers claiming the Quran is against suicide and so they deemed from tobacco control propaganda the term slow suicide and used it to kill smokers. But alas it was hitlery who took Hama’s campaign cash for her NYC senate run and wouldn’t get rid of it until hell and fury struck….. Trump is an american and sure as hell ain’t gonna let jihadists get away with this shit nor are Americans like myself. There’s tens of millions of Americans ready right now to move against the Moslems in america as well there are plenty of Europeans ready to get rid of the Muslims too. I highly doubt they give a shit if their radicalized kids get run down either. Its come to a head and Trump finally got the PC shitcan kicked down the road and the rest jumped in behind him. Yes Trump means an end to the EU and the jihadists and tobacco control and multiculturalism. That’s why the leftists and europhiles are so damned scared of him.

        In fairness, the recipients of Bloomberg’s benevolence disputed that when other clerics disagreed with their actions, for which incidently, Bloomberg thinks he will go straight to heaven.

        “Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, said it’s his work for more gun control — along with his anti-smoking and healthy eating campaigns — that have won him God’s favor and a sure spot behind the Pearly Gates.

        His exact words, made in context of discussing his smoking cessation and anti-obesity pushes, as well as his concerted crackdowns on private gun ownership, to the New York Times were: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

        Indonesian Clerics Join Smoking Fatwa Row – 2010

        “A growing debate in the religious arena over smoking intensified on Sunday, with senior officials from the country’s largest Muslim organization and its top council of clerics deriding a recent fatwa issued against the habit.

        Officials from Nahdlatul Ulama and the Indonesian Council of Ulema (MUI) both took issue with Muhammadiyah, the nation’s second-largest Muslim organization, issuing the religious edict last week, saying it went too far. Both organizations maintained their positions that smoking cigarettes was not haram, or forbidden in Islam.

        “It’s not that easy declaring something as haram. There are many considerations that should be taken into account,” Masdar F Mas’udi, an NU deputy chairman, told the Jakarta Globe. “Nahdlatul Ulama still considers smoking as makruh [undesirable], and we have no plan to change that in the near future

        Over the weekend, however, Muhammadiyah found itself on the defensive, denying that the fatwa was related to a grant it received from a US-based antitobacco organization. The Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, funded by New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, lists a November 2009 grant to Muhammadiyah worth $393,234 on its Web site.

        Among the grant’s stated purposes is “the issuance and dissemination of religious advice on the dangers of tobacco use.”
        http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/archive/indonesian-clerics-join-smoking-fatwa-row/

        “The Bloomberg Initiative says on its website, http: //www.tobaccocontrolgrants.org, its program with Muhammadiyah aims “to mobilize public support towards obtaining religious policy on tobacco control and to support FCTC [Framework Convention on Tobacco Control] accession”.

        Muhammadiyah issued an edict banning its followers from smoking on Wednesday, basing its argument on the Koran, which bans Muslims from taking their own lives. It also urged the government and the House of Representatives to ratify the FCTC.

        Fattah, however, maintained that the council did not receive funding to issue the edict.

        “Muhammadiyah is committed to creating a clean environment and a healthy society. We have a program for that and Bloomberg knew of this program and they offered [to fund it],” he told The Jakarta Post.

        People can decide for themselves who to believe on that one.

      It is very bad form, or a sign of ignorance, to make ‘claims’ with nary a single proof of your statements.

  2. Anyway, seeing that video told me that she simply hasn’t got what it takes to defeat Trump.

    Indeed.
    I’m still unsure about Trump but he stands out of the crowd like a sore thumb. Would I vote for him? Only if he uses common sense and invites the smoking PAYING (!) customers back!!!

    Smokers ARE voters.

  3. Smoking Lamp says:

    The tobacco-free end state is the result of delusional groupthink. The facts supporting the second hand smoke risk are concocted and the threats related to active smoking are extremely exaggerated. The bans, as well know too well, are about politics and not health. The tobacco control cult needs to be checked before they impose their lifestyle controls on alcohol (already in progress), sugar (already in progress), meat (already in progress). Totalitarian social control is on the march once again. It’s as if we are living in a dystopian science fiction novel.

    Short piece on Donald Trump’s family history. Perhaps of limited interest, but note the lawsuit over the senior Trump’s will that distributed his considerable fortune.

    When Islamic jihadists had invaded France Charles the hammer Martel kicked them back into Spain. El Cid kicked them out of Spain to Africa.

    That was a thousand years ago and eventually brought on the crusades. Nothing much has changed now they are getting all the help they need from our so called governments.

    ‘Insane Jihadi’ ?

    Seems to me that term is redundant

    I want to be the Hitler of Turkey, says Erdogan | The Times

    The controversial leader has shocked Turkey by citing Adolf Hitler’s Germany as an example of the type of political system that he wants to build

    President Erdogan has astounded Turkey by citing Adolf Hitler’s Germany as an example of the kind of political system he wants to build.

    The controversial leader, who is loved and loathed in equal measure, hopes to change the country’s constitution to transfer legislative powers from the parliament to the presidency. That would concentrate power in his hands, leading critics to fear that he will turn Turkey into an authoritarian state and never leave office.

      Bloomberg states he has donated 7 million to Turkish anti smoking efforts buthe gave much more in other so called areas. It appears Erdogan and Bloomberg are big time buddies and it was erdogen who ordered the Russian jet shot down.

      http://www.todayszaman.com/anasayfa_erdogans-friendly-chat-with-mob-boss-at-wedding-sparks-outrage_386623.html

      On a sweltering Saturday in June in Istanbul’s old city, Michael R. Bloomberg, power-dressed in a dark blue suit, monogrammed white shirt and cuff links, sat down to a late-morning breakfast with local antismoking activists on a rooftop overlooking the glittering Sea of Marmara.

      Michael Bloomberg’s Harder Sell

      The group, which included Turkish doctors and public health officials, had gathered to celebrate the surprising success of a campaign to persuade Turks, notorious for their love of tobacco, to smoke fewer cigarettes. It was a campaign formulated and funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the charitable foundation of Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York.

      Mr. Bloomberg was in an expansive mood, holding forth on Istanbul’s antiquities and dropping the names of Turkish big shots he has known: Muhtar Kent, the chief executive of Coca-Cola, and Ahmet Ertegun, the late rock ‘n’ roll magnate. But what Mr. Bloomberg really wanted to talk about was the success of his antismoking program in Turkey, an effort that has drawn the passionate support of his newest Turkish pal, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the former prime minister and the country’s just-elected president.

      “Turkey is a great example, and it can be translated to other countries,” Mr. Bloomberg told his breakfast companions. And who knows, he joked, his philanthropy may even win him a Nobel Prize.

      There were some cautious titters from the audience. Was Mr. Bloomberg kidding — or was he issuing a statement of intent?

          Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who wants to acquire executive powers, cited Hitler’s Germany as an example of effective presidential system, according to Turkish media.

          Erdogan wants to change the Turkish Constitution that the ceremonial role of president to turn into executive in a Turkish version of the system in the United States, France or Russia.

          Answering a question on his return from a visit to Saudi Arabia late yesterday, if an executive presidential system is possible while preserving the unitary structure of the state said: “There are already examples in the world. You can see if you look at Hitler’s Germany. There are later examples in various other countries, “he told reporters, according to the recording broadcast by the news agency Dogan.

          Since the uproar caused Turkish official was forced to clarify that Erdogan meant something else. In fact he said: “Nazi Germany, had the appropriate institutional arrangements, was apparently one of the most shameful examples in history” [Comment Kollect: Yes, the institutional arrangements was the problem.]

          The ruling AK, which was founded by Erdogan has put the drafting of a new constitution in the heart of the agenda after winning an absolute majority in parliamentary elections in November.

          Agreed Wednesday with the opposition CHP to revive efforts to draft a new Constitution.

          Opposition parties agree on the need to change the Constitution, which was drafted after the 1980 coup and still bears the stamp of the military, but not in favor of the presidential system envisions Erdogan, fearing that it would gather too much power in the hands of a authoritarian leader.
