The Loyal Opposition

Thought experiment

Posted in Judaism, Minnesota by Neal Krasnoff on May 22, 2015

This year, at Queers on Parade, approach the JCRC table, the DFL, Stonewall FDL, the Libertarian Party, Log Cabin Republicans, MNCLU, HRC and present the following hypothetical.

Statement of fact:

1. I own a Jewish bookstore.
2. A homosexual couple walks in and ask to buy Siddurim for their wedding ceremony with an imprint attesting to the ceremony.
3. I inform the couple that pursuant to normative halacha (Jewish law), I cannot sell a Jewish religious text to be misused in such a manner – this would be a violation of Jewish law and of my beliefs.
4. The homosexual make couple file a complaint with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights.
5. Notwithstanding the prohibition against the State from interfering with my freedom of conscience in Article I, Section 16 of the State Constitution, the Human Rights Commission finds me guilty of violating the rights of the homosexual couple.
6. As an act of conscience, I refuse to comply.
7. The Human Rights Commission refers the case to the Court.
8. The Court issue an order compelling me to comply with the findings and order of Department of Human Rights.
9. I refuse to comply since doing so would violate my beliefs as a Jew.
10. The Court holds me in contempt, a misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment.

Question: Should the State imprison me for my Jewish beliefs?

Additionally:
Ask the JCRC: Would you defend my right to practice Judaism?
Ask a human rights or legal rights organization: Would you defend my rights under the Minnesota Constitution?

If the person states the Jew should be imprisoned, he or she is to be publicly shamed as a racist anti-Semite. To their face. Immediately. In public, for all to hear. Let’s see how they deal with it.

They’re not through with you yet.

Minnesota Women’s Press with the news they, with the help of State Senator Scott Dibble, intend to forcibly compel citizens who disapprove of homosexual behavior to accept same:

BE A CHANGEMAKER:
Marriage: next steps
• Elections: 
Minnesotans United has formed a political action committee (MN United PAC) to help re-elect legislators who supported marriage equality: mnunited.org/
• Fighting discrimination: “For a while we’ll be somewhat on the defensive,” Dibble said. “There’ll be a push to let businesses (such as caterers, photographers, florists, venues) discriminate against LGBT couples who are marrying, so we’re going to contend with that.” Contact your legislator to oppose this type of discrimination: www.leg.state.mn.us/leg/ districtfinder.aspx

The Minnesota Women’s Press and Senator Dibble need to review the Minnesota Constitution:

The right of every man to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience shall never be infringed…nor shall any control of or interference with the rights of conscience be permitted…but the liberty of conscience hereby secured shall not be so construed as to excuse acts of licentiousness or justify practices inconsistent with the peace or safety of the state…
(Article I, Section 16)

What these bigots want is illegal under Minnesota law:

Whoever, by threats or violence, intentionally prevents another person from performing any lawful act enjoined upon or recommended to the person by the religion which the person professes is guilty of a misdemeanor.
(Minnesota Statutes 609.28 sub. 1, Interfering with religious observance)

Threat, a noun, is “a statement of an intention to inflict pain, injury, damage, or other hostile action on someone in retribution for something done or not done”. Dibble, et. al. will try to argue that refusing to cater to a same sex wedding (homosexual behavior) is illegal, therefore, 609.28 sub 1 is inapplicable. Wrong, Dibble and the mob: I refer you again to the Minnesota Constitution where it explicitly states “the right of every man to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience shall never be infringed” and that “any control of or interference with the rights of conscience [shall not] be permitted” provided “the liberty of conscience hereby secured shall not be so construed as to excuse acts of licentiousness or justify practices inconsistent with the peace or safety of the state”. Refusing to be a party to homosexual behavior is not a practice inconsistent with the peace or safety of Minnesota, nor is it an act of licentiousness.

If the Minnesota Department of Human Rights finds for the complainant, and the defendant refuses to comply, the penalty is a misdemeanor: up to 90 days and/or $1000. If the Commissioner of Human Rights files with the District Court and the complainant does not comply, the defendant will be in Contempt of the District Court and the penalty is a misdemeanor: up to 6 months and/or $250, or jail the defendant until he or she complies.

I ask Scott DibbleKathy Magnuson, and Norma Olson: with the Constitution and Statutes of Minnesota cited ante, is it your intent to prosecute and imprison Jews for their religious beliefs?

Framed

Posted in Decline of Western Civilization by Neal Krasnoff on January 12, 2015

Have you noticed that in the various media (foreign, domestic, print, electronic) how the various parties to the War Between the Civilizations are described as to their behaviors and their ideologies? Here’s a convenient guide to assist you in deciphering their code words. This can be quite useful in evaluating American media and others during incidents such as Ferguson or deciphering the opinions of anyone indoctrinated with critical race or gender theory.

Keep in mind their method of reasoning and logical process:

1. People of Color or any protected class or a member of a protected class cannot be held responsible or to account for their behavior because of white or European oppression, regardless of the colonialist, imperialist invasions, aggressive wars, mass genocidal slaughters or other anti-social or violent behavior perpetrated by Muslims, Islam, People of Color, a protected class or a member of a protected class; therefore,
2. It is racist to criticize People of Color or any protected class or a member of a protected class.

Using the above,

1. Muslims are People of Color; therefore,
2. It is racist to criticize Muslims or Islam.

Alternatively,

1. Muslims are People of Color; therefore,
2. Muslims are a protected class; therefore,
3. Islam is a protected class; therefore,
4. It is racist to criticize Muslims or Islam.

Easy? You bet.

backlash: reaction to a violent or anti-social act by Islamists, Muslims, or criticism of a protected class or member of a protected class.
collective punishment: Punishment or indictment of members of a protected class because of the behavior or acts of other members of the protected class. Inapplicable to individuals or groups not considered to be People of Color or a protected class.

collective punishment: Punishment or indictment of members of a protected class because of the behavior or acts of other members of the protected class. Inapplicable to individuals or groups not considered to be People of Color or a protected class.

Christianity: the religion of Christians.

Judaism: the religion of Jews.
microaggression: anything that would upset or cause offense to People of Color, a protected class or member of a protected class.
Muslim: a person who believes in monotheism and that Mohammed was the greatest and final Prophet.
People of Color: a group of people not considered white.

Protected Class: group of persons that share a common characteristic. Inapplicable to individuals or groups not considered to be People of Color or a protected class.
Racism: criticizing an individual considered to be a Person of Color; a racial, ethnic or religious group considered to be People of Color; or a protected class or member of a protected class. Inapplicable to beliefs held against individuals or groups not considered to be People of Color or a protected class.
Racist: a person or group that criticizes an individual considered to be a Person of Color; a racial, ethnic or religious group considered to be People of Color; or a protected class or member of a protected class. Inapplicable to beliefs held against individuals or groups not considered to be People of Color or a protected class.

Minnesota Islamists boycott Israel after Jews defend themselves

Posted in BDS by Neal Krasnoff on January 12, 2015

Here are the Muslim groups that in July 2014 publicly announced their intention to punish the Jews for having the “arrogance” to defend their homeland in 2014, after the genocidal Islamic Resistance Movement in Gaza launched thousands of rockets and kidnapped then murdered Jews. I can’t wait for the next “inter-faith discussion” at a Reform Jewish Temple or an ELCA Lutheran Church, where the invited Imam will try to reconcile this condemnation of the Jews with Allah’s command to the Jews to reside in the Holy Land. It also appears just about every major Somali masjid signed on. I question if the rank and file decided this or it was a unilateral decision by the masjid administrators and theologians. At least they’re now open about it now. I’ll give ’em that.
