Saving Western Civilization Demands that We Study Islam

Why do Westerners need to study Islam? The answer is very simple.

If Islam were “just a religion,” studying it would not be necessary unless one simply wanted to learn about the religion.

However, Islam is not just a religion. It is also a political ideology that when put into practice results in loss of freedom, violence, and ultimately mass slavery of its populations. To many, this statement may seem “intolerant.” However, those who study Islam in depth, without apology for Islam, and those who study Islam’s historical record, will indeed find that Islam poses an existential threat to free civilizations.

This does not mean that “Muslims are bad.” That would be bigotry, because one must assess a person based on his or her character, heart, and actions, not based on race, color, or creed. Just to clarify, Muslims come from all races, and thus expressing discontent with Islam is not “racist.” It is also not “Islamophobic,” because it is not an “irrational fear” to be concerned about the loss of freedom under totalitarian ideologies. Islamophobic is a nonsense (but very clever) word, coined by Islamists to shut down criticism of Islam by impugning the mental state of those discussing it.

Many Muslims don’t study their own doctrines. Others ignore their doctrine, and just try to lead good lives. Many feel trapped by Islam, and in fact are Islam’s first victims—especially among women. Some support Islam’s goals, but don’t take direct action. At the end of this essay, there is a link to a fourteen minute video called By the Numbers, which reports on what Muslims around the world actually believe.

Thus, because of Islam’s political ideology, I believe that Westerners must study Islam. If we do not, preserving Western civilization with all of its freedoms and values will be very difficult.

Can You Help Us Reach 1,900+ Republican Voters in Gray?
A Republican in Gray recently told me that she and her husband have been Gray residents for twenty years, but had NO IDEA that a "Gray Republican Committee" existed. Well... we have to fix that!

We've been searching for cost-effective ways to let the 1,900+ Republican voters in Gray know that we exist and then inspire them to work with us to save America and Freedom.
Gov. Mills: Open Maine Now!
Gov. Janet Mills of Maine needs to dial back the abnormal fear of COVID-19. A MUCH bigger problem is the collapse of the Maine economy if she continues her Draconian Shutdown. The op/ed below is from Republican State Senator Rich Cebra.
April 16 Letter to the Governor from Maine's Joint Republican Caucus 129th Legislature
On April 16, legislative Republicans submitted a letter to the Governor voicing their own concerns along with questions from their constituents. The original intent was to allow the Governor to respond, rather than communicate through press releases.

News organizations have subsequently obtained the letter with plans to report on it. Therefore, we are making it available, unfiltered, for the public to see.
News from the Chair, Peter Falkenberg Brown
The shutdown seems to have saved many lives, which is a good thing, but as many people have said, we don't want the cure to be worse than the disease. Here's hoping that Gov. Mills will ease things open, in a common sense fashion: both businesses and recreational venues. People need to be able to sit in the sun and look at the ocean, in my opinion. It heals the soul and helps the body.
Maine GOP Launches People's Veto To Repeal Ranked Choice Voting
Dr. Demi Kouzounas issued the following statement today regarding her filing for a People's Veto to L.D. 1083 to Repeal Ranked Choice Voting in Maine's Presidential Elections:

"One person, one vote is a bedrock American principle. Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) is a direct violation of that principle and threatens the rights of all Mainers and delegitimatizes our election process," said Dr. Kouzounas.

The people's veto effort will be managed by the Maine Republican Party's new ballot question committee, led by Chair Kouzounas.
