The Latter-Day Saints aka Mormons, faced very real oppression and bigotry because of their faith. In Missouri in the 1830s the Church’s opposition to slavery added to the usual mistrust and suspicion that Mormons faced. The series of Mormon “Wars” were not truly large-scale wars (with the exception of one).
The Mormon Wars bore more of a resemblance to Range Wars of the American West, which is one of the reasons I’m covering them during Frontierado Season. I’m not claiming either side was entirely innocent. Only political propagandists and immature fools pretend conflicts are clear-cut “good guys vs bad guys” situations.

MISSOURI MORMON WAR (August 6th – November 1st, 1838)
AUGUST 6th, 1838 – This was Election Day in newly-formed Daviess (sic) County in Missouri. One of the candidates, William Peniston, called Mormons “horse-thieves and robbers” and warned them not to vote. A band of 30-some Mormons DID show up to vote on August 6th and were blocked by roughly 200 Anti-Mormons.
Legend has it that a cry of “Oh yes, you Danites, here is a job for us” (sometimes claimed to have been “Come on, you Danites!”) rallied those Mormons who belonged to the armed sect of Mormon “Knights” called Danites, from the Book of Daniel.
In the resulting clash the outnumbered Mormons drove off the Missourians who were illegally trying to stop them from voting. Continue reading
The Muslim man charged with setting the mosque on fire.
Despite the media’s incessant, sniveling warnings about alleged Islamophobia they never have any specific examples. The ghoulish newsreaders were licking their chops with glee at the thought that maybe a Christian or a Jew had set fire to a Houston mosque on Christmas Day.
Once again the media was left saying “D’OH!” as security camera footage from nearby businesses led to the arrest of Gary Nathaniel Moore – a Muslim who regularly attended the mosque. Moore reportedly prayed there up to five times a day for years.
Was he trying to fake an “anti-Muslim hate crime” the same way people try to fake Bigfoot or UFO footage? Continue reading
THIS HAUNTING IMAGE STRIKES RIGHT TO THE CORE OF THE HATRED THAT IS ISLAM.
Courageous Muslim women like Asra Q Nomani and Hala Arafa wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post denouncing the condescending and wrong-headed attempts of American Liberal women to defend the demeaning clothing that Muslim men force Muslim women to wear.
They called on the Liberal women to instead join them in denouncing Islam’s sexism and its oppression of women. Don’t hold your breath, ladies. American Liberals are FAR too gutless and hypocritical to criticize Islam like they do Christianity and Judaism.
UNTIL SUCH TIME AS ALL MUSLIM WOMEN ARE FREE TO MAKE THEIR OWN CHOICE ON THE MATTER, IT IS IRRELEVANT HOW MANY MUSLIM “STEPFORD WIVES” COME FORWARD TO PRETEND MUSLIM WOMEN WEAR THOSE OUTFITS WILLINGLY.
I’m not just pro-choice on abortion – I’m pro-choice on the clothing issue, too. American Liberals are too hypocritical for that. FOR THE LADIES’ OP-ED: Continue reading
Spineless hypocrites often try to defend the way Muslim men force Muslim women to dress in demeaning body bags. Those hypocrites even try to pretend that Muslim women are “happy to be wearing them.”
THAT PUTS THOSE HYPOCRITES IN THE SAME HISTORICAL CATEGORY AS DEFENDERS OF SLAVERY IN THE 1800’s WHO USED TO INSIST THAT AFRICAN- AMERICANS WERE HAPPY TO BE SLAVES, OTHERWISE WHY WOULD THEY BE SINGING IN THE COTTON FIELDS.
Until such time as ALL Muslim women can make their own CHOICE on the matter it is irrelevant how many Muslim “Stepford Wives” come forward to pretend they wear those outfits willingly.
I’m not just pro-choice on abortion – I’m pro-choice on the clothing issue, too. Continue reading
Individually the ladies of this real-life League of Extraordinary Women have all been featured over the years here on Balladeer’s Blog. Each one of them has more courage than all of the make-believe feminists whining about “microaggressions” and “safe spaces” on college campuses across America.
These ladies face REAL danger from REAL oppressors of women.
*** WAFA SULTAN is an author and activist against Islamofascism. She writes first-hand about the barbaric and systematically demeaning treatment that women in the Muslim world are subjected to.
Wafa is one of those courageous individuals who are needed the most at this time – the kind who demand to be heard no matter how dangerous it is for them personally. In 2006 Wafa was the first woman on the Muslim propoganda channel Al Jazeera. She masterfully demolished the inept reactionary arguments of the Imam she was debating.
Wouldn’t it be great if American feminists developed the backbone to speak out about Muslim Apartheid?
Recently FEMEN, a feminist group very active in Europe, once again proved more courageous than most feminists in America by protesting at a Muslim cleric conference in Pontoise, France. The protestors entered disguised in the repulsive head-to- toe garments that Muslim men force women to wear.
When the Muslim “holy men” were discussing the Koran’s blessing on beating women the swashbuckling activists ran onstage and removed the outfits, revealing their naked bodies with feminist slogans written on them.
“Personne ne me soumet” (“No one subjugates me”) and “Je suis mon proper prophete” (“I am my own prophet”) were two of the slogans. FEMEN has earned an international reputation as one of the painfully few feminist organizations courageous enough to tackle Islam’s oppression of women.
Here in the United States those FEMEN slogans would have been deemed “hate speech” and banned for being “offensive to Muslims.” To our spineless media and politicians everyone has to be inclusive … except for the privileged Muslims.
FEMEN’s inspiring statement denouncing Muslim Apartheid went far beyond the mushy politically correct gibberish spouted by the hypocritical cowards of what masquerades as western liberalism in the 21st Century. Here is FEMEN’s statement in full: Continue reading
AND HERE YOU THOUGHT IT WAS BARACK OBAMA WHO COINED THIS SAYING!
Sure, Islam is the most homophobic and misogynistic religion in the world at this particular point in history but its hatred of free speech is equally repulsive! Continue reading
