What ISIS Really Wants




After you read the Graeme Wood opinion below Google Larry O'Donnell last night's "The Last Word" and listen to his guests among whom was a feminist Muslim woman, the prescient Phyllis Bennis and others who discuss the eschatological or end days 7th Century Muslim religious belief system ISIS follows and why ISIS is not simply an irrational band of thugs.  Far from it.  They have core beliefs whose etiology begins in the 7th century and they want to keep it for the 21st century and beyond.   

You cannot kill militarily an idea but rather must fight it with modern ideas emanating from the Enlightenment to our modern era.




What ISIS Really Wants


The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD

This is why I was screaming to the rafters in 2014. Latinos, when you KNOW the Republicon Party is NOT about you you get out the vote! They are about sending Latinos back irrespective of whether you have families here permanently or not. Therefore, I said Latinos, progressive, Democrats and others who KNOW what this Republican Party is all about and it's NOT about the 98% of Americans who are not the 1% richest so I screamed, screamed and screamed some more, emailing all the Latino groups I could find along with other progressive allies to get out and VOTE.  You do not let voting go. We as progressives and persons of humane belief KNOW that Republicans in this country do not care about humane policy they care about piling all the money into their corner and leaving the rest of us, the 98% out in the cold.

You should do anything and everything to GET ESPECIALLY LATINOS AND OTHERS ON THE SIDE OF THE 98% OUT TO VOTE. It should have been done in 2014 but it wasn't. Democrats and progressives stayed home. YOU CANNOT STAY HOME. Show them through the ballot box that the only reason these Republican Cretans have power is because it was a low voter turn out election. When we get out to vote we WIN. THEN MONITOR THE VOTE to make sure Republicans do not corrupt it.

Latinos, DO SO in 2016 or they will deport you as fast as jack rabbit can run!
