I Hate UT Again, Green Berets Confirm US Arming Islamists in Syria November 1, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, asshatery, disaster, Ecumenism, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, persecution, rank stupidity, Revolution, scandals, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
A couple of quick hits – first, I haven’t given UT a dime since my conversion. It’s simply too pagan and too structurally immoral – as virtually every modern state “research university” is – to command my financial support. But my ire was raised to number 11 when I read this recent article about a bit of idiocy at UT, where the administration made plain they have little interest in free speech, unless it’s the right kind of speech:
The Young Conservatives of Texas club at the University of Texas at Austin sparked outrage Wednesday after hosting an “affirmative action bake sale” and charging people different prices based on their race and sex.
The Dallas Morning News reported that a cookie at the sale cost $1.50 for Asian males, $1 for white males and 50 cents for African-American and Hispanic males. Native American men and women were given free cookies.
Asian women had to pay $1.25, white women 75 cents and Hispanic and African-American women 25 cents.
The club drew heavy scrutiny from a crowd of hundreds, but it insisted that the bake sale was a protest against the “institutionalized racism” of affirmative action programs at colleges and universities. Some in the crowd chanted “racists go home.”
“Our protest was designed to highlight the insanity of assigning our lives value based on our race and ethnicity, rather than our talents, work ethic and intelligence,” club chairman Vidal Castañeda said. “It is insane that institutional racism, such as affirmative action, continues to allow for universities to judge me by the color of my skin rather than my actions.”
According to the paper, the Young Conservatives of Texas came under fire in 2013 for holding a similar bake sale. The university’s vice president for diversity and community engagement Gregory J. Vincent called that sale “deplorable.”
This time, Vincent said this bake sale was “inflammatory and demeaning.”
“Yet focusing our attention on the provocative nature of the YCT’s actions ignores a much more important issue: They create an environment of exclusion and disrespect among our students, faculty and staff,” he said.
This is just blatant political bias. UT, if you want to know why this alum will never give another dime, look in the freakin’ mirror. Why would I support an institution that hates and denigrates everything I stand for, from the individual right to self defense to the reinstitution of moral standards to a truly color blind society, the one all the early civil rights activists claimed to fervently desire.
Universities are where the shock troops of the future totalitarian government of this nation are being formed up and trained.
On another note, Green Beret’s on the ground in Syria (I guess we can toss that “no boots on the ground” promise out the window – yet another Obama lie) have expressed their disgust and dismay with the fact that they are being asked to train jihadis in the art of warfare so they can turn around and kill Americans (foul language warning):
In a detailed report, US Special ForcesSabotage White House Policy gone Disastrously Wrong with Covert Ops in Syria, Jack Murphy, himself a former Green Beret (U.S. Special Forces), recounts a former CIA officer having told him how the “the Syria covert action program is [CIA Director John] Brennan’s baby …Brennan was the one who breathed life into the Syrian Task Force … John Brennan loved that regime-change bullshit.”
Murphy states bluntly:
distinguishing between the FSA and al-Nusra is impossible, because they are virtually the same organization. As early as 2013, FSA commanders were defecting with their entire units to join al-Nusra. There, they still retain the FSA monicker, but it is merely for show, to give the appearance of secularism so they can maintain access to weaponry provided by the CIA and Saudi intelligence services. The reality is that the FSA is little more than a cover for the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra. …
“The fact that the FSA simply passed American-made weaponry off to al-Nusra is also unsurprising considering that the CIA’s vetting process of militias in Syria is lacklustre, consisting of little more than running traces in old databases. These traces rely on knowing the individuals’ real names in the first place, and assume that they were even fighting-age males when the data was collected by CTC [Counterterrorism Centre] years prior.” [It should be noted that Obama all but obliterated the CTC and other covert anti-terrorist intelligence gathering and repositories of knowledge. Because he was going to heal the world, remember? That’s why the data is obsolete, largely]
“Nobody believes in it. You’re like, ‘F–k this,’” a former Green Beret says of America’s covert and clandestine programs to train and arm Syrian militias.“Everyone on the ground knows they are jihadis. No one on the ground believes in this mission or this effort, and they know they are just training the next generation of jihadis, so they are sabotaging it by saying, ‘F–k it, who cares?’”
“I don’t want to be responsible for Nusra guys saying they were trained by Americans,” the Green Beret added. A second Special Forces soldier commented that one Syrian militia they had trained recently crossed the border from Jordan on what had been pitched as a large-scale shaping operation that would change the course of the war. Watching the battle on a monitor while a drone flew overhead, “We literally watched them, with 30 guys in their force, run away from three or four ISIS guys.”……..
………“While the games continue on, morale sinks for the Special Forces men in Turkey. Often disguised in Turkish military uniform, one of the Green Berets described his job as, ‘Sitting in the back room, drinking chai while watching the Turks train future terrorists’ …
“Among the rebels that U.S. Special Forces and Turkish Special Forces were training, ‘A good 95 percent of them were either working in terrorist organizations or were sympathetic to them,’ a Green Beret associated with the program said, adding, ‘A good majority of them admitted that they had no issues with ISIS and that their issue was with the Kurds and the Syrian regime.’”
The fundamental problem is the religion. Muslim men motivated to fight are not motivated by dreams of a liberal democracy or capitalist system – they might vaguely desire a better life for their family, materially, but probably do not conceive such in the liberal Western sense – they are motivated primarily by religion. And the most “orthodox” or pious practice of the muslim faith involves, and has always involved, the willingness to use violence. So given a predominantly religious motivation on the one hand, and the “best” practitioners of that religion being the most violent and involved in these jihadist groups, and the result has been a steady and nearly complete migration of supposedly “Free Syrian Army” liberal groups to the militant muslims.
We have been arming, funding, and training those jihadis for years now. That’s what you get with a president who is, for all practical purposes, a muslim himself.
