Admiral (Ret) James Lyons on Islam as a threat doctrine

I'm not alone in my thinking....... islam needs to be stopped dead in its tracks. If not for our Freedom then for our children. Watch the video.

Admiral (Ret) James Lyons on Islam as a threat doctrine

Admiral (Ret) James Lyons blasts obama... and previous, administration over missed opportunities at a National Press Club address on "how to combat Islamists",
This is 3:52 minutes of sagely; reflective; historical; strategic perspective... from one that knows on Our missed opportunities to have averted the situation we know find ourselves as a Nation having to come to grips with real fast.
One person notes: "This guy is awesome. If we had 10,000 more like him and a few less Michael Moors we could maybe save civilization."

Just saw the video this morning.

The quote that stuck most with me most was, "Islam is a political movement masquerading as a religion". That was the best description I've heard from anyone in the public realm.

I'm surprised it hasn't been classified as hate speech.

To classify it as hate speech it would need to be circulated to the masses so that the media could stir the requisite amount of anger needed to hang the scarlet letter of hate speech around it...

The same people that would like to classify it as hate speech would be terrified to see the same message get main stream exposure.
