When people ask me how long it will be before any of our leaders finally call a spade a spade and start to fight back against the war that Islam has declared and is waging against us, my answer is 17 years.

Thirty-five years passed between the year 1945 — when WWII ended and the post-Nazism scourge of Communism took over — and the year 1980, when the man ascended who unequivocally declared Communism an evil then delivered the world from it. The man was Ronald Reagan and the year was 1980.

If Communism fell in 1991, ushering in the next scourge — expansionist, political Islam, which had been contained by the previous evil — then we can expect our deliverer to come along somewhere around 2025 or 2026.

The deliverer already exists, but it will probably take the country another 17 years to allow her to ascend to power. By that time, she will be John McCain’s age. Allow me to introduce Marcia Stirman, of New Mexico:

Stirring the pot
Islamic group calls on NMGOP to repudiate remarks made by Marcia Stirman
Alamogordo Daily News

ALBUQUERQUE The chairwoman of an Otero County Republican women’s group on Tuesday defended a letter to the editor in which she wrote, ‘’I believe Muslims are our enemies.'’

Marcia Stirman, a 56-year-old interior decorator, also called Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama ‘’a Muslim socialist.'’

A national Islamic group expressed outrage over Stirman’s letter and called on state and national Republican Party officials to repudiate the publication of ‘’anti-Muslim comments.'’

‘’Because these hate-filled remarks were made by a prominent Republican, it is incumbent on state and national GOP officials to repudiate her divisive and intolerant views,'’ said Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Officials with the Republican Party of New Mexico had no immediate comment.

The letter ran Tuesday in the Alamogordo Daily News. It was titled ‘’Why I’m a Republican'’ and listed 16 reasons for her party affiliation.

The list ends with Stirman saying Obama is ‘’a Muslim socialist.'’ She also wrote, ‘’I believe war is a fact of life and we should always win.'’

Stirman told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that she was surprised by reaction to her letter, which she said included support from all over the country. She wrote it after the newspaper recently published another reader’s letter titled ‘’Why I’m a Democrat.'’

Asked for a response to Awad’s concerns, she said of Muslims: ‘’I don’t trust them at all. They’ve sworn across the world that they are our enemies. Why we’re trying to elect one is beside me.'’

Obama’s Kenyan father was Muslim, but Obama grew up in a Christian family. Although he has professed his Christianity repeatedly and explained how his Christian faith shapes his politics, he has battled Internet-fueled rumors throughout the campaign that he is Muslim.

Somehow I don’t think the Internet was around yet when this Indonesian school application was filled out by Obama’s parents.

I also don’t think that Obama’s teacher, childhood friends or half-brother were communicating by Internet when they saw him going to services at the mosque on Fridays in Indonesia.

Stirman said she carefully considered what she wrote in the letter, refused to apologize and defended her right to express her views.

‘’I still have freedom of speech and an opinion. If the Islamic group doesn’t like it, well, I don’t like what’s going on in their camp, either,'’ Stirman said.

It’s also amazing that the newspaper actually published her op-ed, which took some cojones to do on the part of the paper. While certainly it’s an opportunity to make Republicans look “bad,” it’s still a huge risk.

Now THAT’s hot!
