This is FOR REAL.
One of my internet friends, Chris the AnarchAngel, a regular contributor to my Carnival of Cordite, has learned that islamofascist terrorists have issued a fatwah against him. Why? Because he has had the guts to post the truth about our enemies, and the nerve to exercise the same "free speech" that our American left holds so dear when it comes to crucifixes in urine and taking a torch to the American flag.
I'm a little worried for Chris, but not overly so. Chris is a veteran and a security specialist. He knows his stuff. He can, and will, take care of himself. I'm more worried about his friends and family. He may be a 300 pound gorilla martial-arts expert with a huge personal arsenal -- but he can't be around everyone he knows all the time to protect them. The cravenly coward terrorists who issued this fatwah have no qualms about killing the innocent.
They are already targeting innocents. They killed 3,000 Americans for the crime of being American. They blew up buses and trains in London to punish Londoners for being British. What's to stop them from targeting me?
Well, Chris, I want you to know that even though you live far away, even though we've never met in person, I stand with you. A threat against one of my fellow Americans is a threat against us all. A threat against one of my fellow bloggers is a threat against us all. If islamofacist terrorists want to target me, want to issue a fatwah against me, for this show of solidarity, then so be it. I am an American, a Patriot, and a sworn enemy of terror; I believe that every islamofacist terrorist out there already wants me dead, anyway.
So if I am already a target, I may as well hold my head high. When I took the Oath of Office in joining the United States Air Force, I swore an Oath to God that I would support and defend my nation against all enemies. An oath like that doesn't end with an honorable discharge.
Chris, you have thousands of fellow bloggers out there watching your back. Let us know if we can be of any help.
