Violence, The New Normal...

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

I'm normally very diplomatic when writing about politics because you can't have a dialogue when you take an "us vs them" position.  But today is not a day for diplomacy, today is a day for hard truths.

The same way that Islam will never cure itself from the evil within if its followers don't fight for a fundamental reform in ideology, our toxic political environment will not improve unless we are willing to talk about the evil that found a home within the democrat party.

Extreme left groups, heavily funded, with the unconditional support of the main stream media, have supported and promoted a hateful ideology that has become a cult with an eerie resemblance to radical Islam..."if you don't agree with my way of thinking you deserve to die".

No, I am not putting all democrats in the same bag, I do realize that many do not embrace this new radical and extreme behavior, but sadly a few in very prominent positions do and they need to be held accountable for encouraging chaos.

Democrats have normalized violence.

When instead of condemning terrorism you lay out a case in order to justify it, you are normalizing it.
When instead of condemning riots and Black lives matter attacks on cops you lay out a case to justify it, you are normalizing it.

When instead of condemning the aggression towards conservatives in college campuses you lay out a case to justify it, you are normalizing it.

When you applaud a so called artist for ranting obscenities against the President, another for saying she wants to bomb the White House, a play depicting the assassination of the President, another for showing the President's severed head on TV, another for calling every conservative a racist and saying they should all die, and lay out a case to justify it, you are normalizing it.

I hold every publication, every TV journalist, every internet site that purposely promote stories they know are false and then make the argument in favor of violent behavior for today's targeted attack on Republican representatives.  The blood of the three victims are on their hands.

Their control is so extensive that there were people cheering the incident much the same as radicals cheer when a jihadi takes the lives of infidels....violence is normalized.

Violence is justified, violence is now embraced.

A violence created and fed through lies.  People like to say that it's a conflict between good and evil and I agree...but what is good other than the truth and what is evil other than lies..?

Remembering A Hero Named AL..

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

Those close to me know my great love and respect for my former father in law, who unfortunately is no longer with us.

We spent hours sitting at his back yard while he smoked a cigar and told me his war stories, he always tried to make light of it as he told them in a very casual and matter of fact way.... but I could feel the deep sadness in his heart.

He was wounded trying to save his platoon and received several medals, including the Bronze Medal and a Purple Heart; all of which sat in a box and he never even mentioned it until I decided to frame them and give him the respect he deserved.

The medals meant nothing to him, the memories meant everything!

For all his life he carried the pain of seeing his friends die in combat, the guilt for being back home with his family while so many didn't return.  They were young men, all from the same neighborhood, and some gave all.

I've learned a lot from Al through the years of spending those precious afternoons with him....

I've learned about friendship, resilience, honor, and patriotism.  There is no glory in war, and oh....how I wish we would never have to fight another war again!

But there is glory in a soldier, in his love of Country, in his dedication to freedom, in his selfless acts to keep his brothers safe during battle, in his heart that aches forever tormented by the memories he has to carry, and in the ultimate sacrifice leaving behind loved ones as his body lies lifeless on the battle ground.

Hate the war, but love and respect the warrior, their sacrifice is for you, be thankful..!

On this Memorial Day let's have a moment of silence with our families and show our respect for the fallen, they've given way more than one minute of their lives for you.

Progressively Fascist...

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

As an Independent I think both political parties leave much to be desired and it appears that their only goal is to promote division so we are too busy fighting each other to point fingers at them.

That being said; I have a much bigger problem with today's so called progressives than any other group in this country.

The word “progressive” is an adjective supposed to mean forward thinking; instead it has become the embodiment of illogical thinking and paradox.

If you are against religion having any influence in government, then why are you supportive of devout Muslims running for office and call it progress..?!  Aren't their beliefs going to affect their judgement the same way it would a devout Christian..?! 

Progressives hate pro-life activists for their beliefs because of the religious connection; for them, pro-lifers are against women's rights because they ignore the fact that a fetus is also a human being deserving of rights.  In other words, they choose to only afford rights to those who can already vote.

It gets better; when the same progressives, who are pro-abortion claiming women's rights as the logic behind it and their desire to keep religion separate from secular law, support the most barbaric and least forward thinking religion in the world calling for their constitutional right to "cling to their religion.”

Progressives will fight against devout Christians every step of the way based on their idea of separation of church and state, while defending sharia law just as vehemently based on freedom of religion.

As if that wasn't paradoxical enough, they've decided to add their own version of what constitutes freedom of speech to the pot.

This one is pretty simple though: anything that does not support their views is considered hate speech.

If you are a fiscal conservative and don't even care to talk about social issues but only want to promote fiscal responsibility, that's hate speech.  If you don't believe that government is the answer to all of our problems, that's hate speech.  If you think Islam has a serious problem that needs to be talked about rationally, that's hate speech.  If you think drug cartels are in cahoots with politicians and open borders has nothing to do with charity, that's hate speech.

And the list goes on.  But I think that the progressives’ new definition of fascism is what bothers me the most lately because too many good people have been duped into believing it.

Fascism is inherently loss of freedom; it does not belong to the right or the left, it can use either side as its vehicle.  Fascism is silencing ideas that are contrary to yours, it is removing any trace of history that doesn't support your thinking, and it is controlling speech, controlling actions, controlling diversity.  So, if progressives are pro diversity, why are they silencing the ones who are different from them..?!

When progressives created the "Antifa" (anti fascism) movement, they themselves became the fascists.  They are the ones silencing people by censuring and attacking. They are the ones forcing people to lose their jobs because of what they believe, beating people up on the streets for wearing a shirt they don't like, vandalizing cars for a bumper sticker supporting a cause they don't believe in.

Their approach to "progress" is total regression to public shaming, violence and intimidation, it is fascism.  Worse yet, it is terrorism.

The definition of terrorism is "The unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims."

The "progressive movement" is clearly heavily funded by those who have no interest in peace, because the elite thrive on chaos.

And what better way of promoting chaos than by infiltrating some paid pseudo human rights activists into a population..?  Sadly, it will get worse before it gets better..!

On the bright side, I know I'm not alone and there are millions of people out there who have been able to keep their ability to think logically and don't subscribe to political identity as their alternative brain.

The emotional being is only useful when the logical mind is in control.

Phobia That...!

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

Publisher’s Note:  This is the round-house punch.  Get a towel ready because you're gonna need it.

Sybele Capezzutti:  Most Americans don't understand Islam.  It is not simply a belief system but a political system as well.  Followers of Islam are taught to live under sharia law, and that is not just for radicals but for every follower.  A recent research revealed that 51% of the Muslims living the in US support replacing the Constitution with sharia law.

Predominantly Muslim countries enforce sharia as the only set of laws for its citizens. Because those laws are part of a belief system, their followers do not recognize or are compelled to follow any other law, thus why they don't assimilate when living in western countries and form communities where they follow sharia among themselves. 

I hear a lot of people talking about respecting others religions, and I completely support that. But, understanding that Islam is not simply a religion is extremely important..!  In essence, it is a totalitarian system that uses people's blind faith in order to control every aspect of their lives.  We've worked really hard in this country to ensure people's basic rights and I'm dumbfounded when I hear people willingly making room in our society for a system that under the blanket of religion takes them all away.  

If you're not familiar with sharia, please read and learn.  Sharia law is the law of Islam. The Sharia (also spelled Shariah or Shari'a) law is cast from the actions and words of Muhammad, which are called "Sunnah," and the Quran, which he authored.  According to the Sharia law: 

• Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand. 

• Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death. 

• Criticizing or denying Muhammad is a prophet is punishable by death. 

• Criticizing or denying Allah, the moon god of Islam is punishable by death. 

• A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is sentenced to death. 

• A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is sentenced to death. 

• A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is sentenced to death. 

• A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old. 

• Girls' clitoris should be cut (per Muhammad's words in Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251). 

• A woman can have 1 husband, but a man can have up to 4 wives 

• A man can unilaterally divorce his wife but a woman needs her husband's consent to divorce. 

• A man can beat his wife for insubordination. 

• Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman. 

• A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s). 

• A woman's testimony in court, allowed only in property cases, carries half the weight of a man's. 

• A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits. 

• A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval). 

• A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative. 

• Meat to be eaten must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah - i.e., be Halal. 

• Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam. 

• Homosexual activity is punishable by death 

• Non-Muslims must pay a tax called jizrah or die 

• Blasphemy against Islam is punishable by flogging, amputation, hanging or beheading. 

• The Quran doesn't recognize written contracts for commercial transactions, only oral agreements. 

• It is acceptable to take non-muslims as slaves and sell them. 

• Interest on loans are prohibited. 

After learning about these strict laws, it is almost pathetic that the focus of criticism in this Country are some Christians who oppose tax payer's funding for abortions, Nativity Scenes or Christmas trees on the public square, a silent prayer in public, Bibles in a hotel room, and all the other silly things that apparently bother so many while the same people go out of their way to make room for tolerance of laws that clearly infringe on freedom of speech and equal rights. Ignorance is a choice, a dangerous one.

Phobia This...!

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

Publisher’s note:  Sybele Capezzutti has cranked out a two punch boxing match of a series.  This first jab is to sort of “tenderize” the reader with a softening, educational punch.  I’m going to let this one sink in for a few days, and then, just as the bruising is feeling a bit less tender, we'll release the round house, knock-out punch which is part two.  

That knock-punch should leave the opponents of her very common sense writing bloodied, reeling, and tossing in the towel.  

Sybele Capezzutti:  Let's pretend it's 1935; the Nazis don't look too bad and have a lot of support...yes, they are radical extremists that want a pure Aryan world, but how much damage could they do? 

Now let's say I'm a pacifist, multi-culturalist, kumbaya singing person in the mid 1930's; of course I would never label or profile anyone and I wouldn't want others to do it either..!  So, being very clever, I decide that the best way to avoid any retaliation against any individual that I am not sure subscribes to the Nazi agenda is to make people feel guilty if they do so...and I create the word "germanophobia." 

If you dare to be afraid of any Germans because you don't know if they support Hitler or not, you are now a "germanophobe."  What do you know..? It works great..!  No one wants to be a “germanophobe because lots of Germans are nice people..!  The fact that we have no clue which ones are Nazis and support the idea of a pure Aryan race and which ones are not should be irrelevant.  The fact that the real Nazis will torture people, use them as lab rats for experiments, kill babies with deformities (keep in mind they want a pure and superior race) should have no weight on my ability to love everyone, right..?  

It took the US 8 years to enter WW2; for 8 years we ignored Hitler and his atrocities, and we all know the result and how many people the Nazis tortured and killed in order to create a pure Aryan race.  If the term "germanophobia" sounds silly, it's because it is..!  As silly as the term "islamophobia."  

This is not about being afraid of a group, this is not about religion; this is about ideology, period.  Radical Islam is a thousand times more dangerous than Hitler ever was; it doesn't have just one head, but several.  It is spread all over the world, it is next door. Can we afford to take 8 years to wake up..?  This is not a time to play political games or say things that make you feel better about yourself. 

While we sit here pointing fingers at each other to see who is "compassionate" and who isn't, who is racist and who isn't, who is a bigot and who isn't.....Islamists are raping young and old women until they die from bleeding; they are killing their children and then feeding them their flesh, they are crucifying and beheading, they are killing disabled children and laughing at us because we're paralyzed by political correctness and self-righteousness.  Again...this is not about religion, it's about ideology. 

Wake up..! It's way past time..!
