Today's AYFKM? Award: Hawaii Islam Day

I can already imagine the email I will be receiving after this hits the net…

Today’s Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? Award goes to my state senate for passing “Islam Day” to be observed on September 24th, 2009 at a time when we are at war with Islamic Jihadists.

H/T to Atlas Shrugs for paying more attention to the state in which I reside than I do; probably because it doesn’t make one iota of difference what a few sane individuals think here.  “We gotta vote for Obama, he’s a local boy.”  Remember, this is the state that wants to establish it’s own sovereignty independent of the United States as a Hawaiian Nation with no military and an unarmed populace, (by design), that will lickety split become the territory of Japan, China, or Sweden (who already has a stake in this island chain).  A few of my closer associates already know that I am shopping for a new state to live in, and I am sure the locals will be happy to see me go.

From FoxNews (Politics):

Hawaii Lawmakers Pass Bill to Create ‘Islam Day’

HONOLULU — Hawaii’s state Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill Wednesday to celebrate “Islam Day” — over the objections of a few lawmakers who said they didn’t want to honor a religion connected to Sept. 11, 2001.

The Senate’s two Republicans argued that a minority of Islamic extremists have killed many innocents in terrorist attacks.

“I recall radical Islamists around the world cheering the horrors of 9/11. That is the day all civilized people of all religions should remember,” said Republican Sen. Fred Hemmings to the applause of more than 100 people gathered in the Senate to oppose a separate issue — same-sex civil unions.

The resolution to proclaim Sept. 24, 2009, as Islam Day passed the Senate on a 22-3 vote. It had previously passed the House and now goes to Republican Gov. Linda Lingle.

The bill seeks to recognize “the rich religious, scientific, cultural and artistic contributions” that Islam and the Islamic world have made. It does not call for any spending or organized celebration of Islam Day.

“We are a state of tolerance. We understand that people have different beliefs,” said Sen. Will Espero, a Democrat. “We may not all agree on every single item and issue out there, but to say and highlight the negativity of the Islamic people is an insult to the majority” of believers “who are good law-abiding citizens of the world.”

The second AYFKM? Award goes to Senator Will Espero, who I swear must be portagee for his comment above.  I am not a local hawaiian, even though I am now considered kaimaina, and I will state unequivocally that Hawaii is NOT a state of tolerance; far from it. From the first week that I lived here when local hawaiian women were spitting on my 3 year old and myself because of our white skin and red hair, to being called a haole bitch almost daily, to the continued stink eye and frowns I receive every time I walk into a bank or grocery store, Hawaii is NOT about tolerance or embracing different cultures.  It is just more words with totally opposite actions.   A great day in Hawaii is a day that I do not have to cross paths with a local, and put up with the reverse racism that goes with it.  (And people wonder why I try to keep my identity under the radar.)

My last comment is rather a question; how much did Bambi’s travels here have to do with this occurring?

******

P.S. I wonder how this is going to affect our economically downtrodden tourism?

    Makes me want bypass Hawaii all together. Mr. Muslim himself…I am certain it had much to do with that ignorant day. Islam should not be celebrated they should be wiped from the Earth. I have always known there are no moderate Muslims who truly believe in Islam. Not the kind of religion I would embrace….talk about intolerance. If Lingle signs that bill she should be banned from Hawaii and the Earth.

  2. navyvet48 says:

    One more note I spent much of the evening researching information and sources for my book. I will e-mail you the Chapter 1 title…

  3. No lack of stupidity on this island.

  4. Dahveed says:

    Your right, lots of hate on the islands for non-locals. I’m sure the militant Hawaiian types are quick to look UP to radical Islam as a group that stands up against the Christians. Little do they know that the tolerance the Christian based government shows to the Hawaiian religion would not exist in a Islam based world. If Hawaii was a Muslim based land, ancient Hawaiian temples would be bull-dozed very quickly. Christians may be tolerant of other religions, Islam is NOT. I like how the Christians are worried about being tolerant while Muslims attack those of their faith that want to convert.

    Some of these Hawaiians are just like other minorities in the USA – they blame ALL their misfortune on “the man.” In reality, the only man holding them back is the one that they see in their mirror each day…

  5. DiamondTiger says:

    The most interesting thing about all of this is the amazing christian faith here in the islands. I have never seen so many christian churches in such a small area…and then this gets passed by the Senate. Nobody even heard about this going down until it was actually happening.

  6. The “intolerant” state of Alabama would be proud to have you join our citizenry. Be sure to add us to your shopping list for a look-see. I promise no one here will spit on you!

    I live in what I like to call the suburbs of Waverly, pop. 225, (give or take a few)but actually our property now borders Auburn (cow college)city limits. We refuse to be annexed, so I tell everyone I live in Waverly still.

    Heck, we just won a small skirmish when one of the newly empowered ones (because of obambi’s election) decided he would take confederate battle flags off of graves of confederate soldiers at a local Auburn cemetery prior to Confederate Memorial Day. He didn’t get jailed or fined, but had to give a public apology to the United Daughters of the Confederacy & the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The city council passed a resolution condemning his actions & left him no choice. It was a small, but sweet victory for those of us who know the war between the states was more about states rights than slavery.

    Come to “Sweet Home Alabama,” my friend. We will love you here!

    God bless America!

    (be back to read about swine flu later, too early for that right now)

  7. Just one more sign that this government is pushing on every level for us to start the fracas and revolution. They want us to make the first move and are testing and pushing us at every level. Sanity has left the building!!!

  8. The sad truth is that TPTB have opted to use Islamic Jihad as a way to reach their twisted goals of population control and lack of sovereignty. I’m not sure if it came down to it who would win that ultimate battle, but I don’t really care because if that battle ever comes to pass I and every other regular here will be long since “disappeared” or “suicided”.

    Hawaii is a lovely place to visit, but you know there’s a problem when the flight crew on your plane warns you about straying into a local’s fields for fear of you being shot.

  9. Walt1 says:

    I am sure a “Christian day” bill is comming to the senate floor soon. I wonder what the vote would be? If anyone knows a Hawaii lawmaker, urge them to propose such a bill.

    WHEREAS Jesus, who’s comming was foretold, and was born in Bethlehem to a virgin, performed many miracles and gave much wisdom to mankind, was crucified and in three days, arose from the tomb as witnessed by over 500 people, and is today recognised as the savior of mankind from his sinful nature, and is one with God….

    How would that go over????

  10. More evidence yet, sanity has left the building!!!
    This government has gone completely nuts and what we as “We the People” want is irrelevant. This government is pushing and pushing, trying to find our breaking point. Taxing us to death to give the money to the richest people that have already stolen so much and should be prosecuted rather that “bailed out”, and now trying their damned best to make Christianity illegal and bending over backwards to the Muslims, who want nothing short of all of us dead. How do you negotiate with someone that wants you dead?…. “Can I stay alive for a few more months?” You can give them the entire country and that will not be enough. They want us to convert or die, and even if you do convert, they may say you are not Muslim enough, or the wrong type of Muslim, and kill you anyway. No one will ever convince me that 9/11 was not an inside job…that a bunch of radicals in caves was able to pull off this atrocity. To me, this just puts and exclamation point on the fact that our government HATES us!! This is what this government (I mean corporation) has in common with the Muslims…they both hate us and want us dead.

  11. Leaping Spark says:

    Kissing the Muslims ass will get Hawaii nothing in return, you are all infidels and you will convert to Islam or be destroyed just like the rest of us. Islam is an evil, barbaric stoneage religion that has no tolerance for other faiths. Moderate Islam is a friggin joke pandered about by chicken shit politicians afraid to speak the truth. Islam only exists because of our tolerance, the Nation of Islam could be ended in a weekend if the rest of the world chose to do so. Worship whatever God you choose to worship but don’t tread on me! Nuff said

  12. OC/LA transplant says:

    reverse racism is just that – now you as a white majority understand what other immigrants/minorities go through on Mainland. Big deal, it was your decision to move here so suck it up.

  13. no-nonsence-nancy says:

    I am outraged! It just shows that BO is a muslim, hates Christinity and Judeism and all Americans and means great harm to us. We MUST get rid of him! It can be done! Somehow.

  14. Kathy says:

    This is completely off topic, but if you need a break and especially if you grew up in the sixties, this may take you down memory lane.

  15. Leaping Spark says:

    Speak freely now patriots because the Congress has already passed a hate crime bill that will severely limit your freedom of speech. Thank the Muslims for this one and if you chance read “Islam: A Threat or a Challenge” by Sharrosh it will give you some great insight into Obama’s master plan for America. Let’s face it we are the last free country left in the world and all of the radical bastards in our government and all over the world are not going to rest until we are brought under the yoke of Socialism and possibly Islam.

  16. Wayne says:

    This is more about the locals sticking it to their perceived “occupation”. I lived in Hawaii and Guam and in the late 80’s in Guam, they had this local;who was a former air force officer; run around dressed like a warrior protesting the bases along with other nuts. So the military started closing NAS Agana and other facilities and guess what….yeh, locals started losing jobs because of the closures; all of a sudden, this guy and his followers must have been gagged by his own locals to shut up and sit down! Now the military has been going back and putting in more subs, ships and base support with more jobs.
    Be careful what you wish for! You may get “Your” island back, but with no jobs, Coconut leaves for clothes and 150 year reversal in lifestyle. Just the place Islam likes to prey upon! Good luck speaking your mind in that arrangement! I was also station in Bahrain and traveled all through the Muslim world; I know the Hawaiian brothers will not do well in that culture. Mahalo!

    Diamond Tiger

    I do some consulting work for a company in Kailua, the owner of the company was in the field and had not heard about the new Islamic ass kissing day in Hawaii, when I informed him via email he went friggin nuts as Sept 24, is the day that he and other Hawaiian Patriots have traditionally reinacted the Boston Tea Party. So much for American history and patriotism in Hawaii.
