Riley J. Hood: Time to Get Serious

Riley J. Hood

From Constitution Party of Wisconsin Chairman Riley J.Hood:

“Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end;” Psalms 7:9

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

Twelve people were murdered by two Muslims at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a publication that printed cartoons depicting Muhammad. The two police officers assigned to protect editor and cartoonist Stephane Charbonnier intercepted the gunmen; both officers were shot, and one died at the scene. Among the murdered were “Charb” Charbonnier, and Bernard Maris, a Bank of France economist who was a columnist for the magazine.”–Pete Williams-NBC News 1/7/15

There was a further attack on the Hyper Casher Kosher Grocery store the same day, in which four people were murdered. The death toll would have been worse, if not for the quick action of Lassana Bathily, a Malian immigrant and supermarket employee who hid shoppers in a walk-in freezer. (See editor’s note at the bottom.) A policewoman was also murdered in the attack.

After 17 dead it is time to access what is happening and formulate a proper retaliatory response. It is time to start thinking along realistic lines as opposed to the liberal thought process of “how can we preserve the reputation of Islam?” If one is honest, and faces the facts, Islam has no reputation to preserve. The “Uma” of Islam will not let the French have their “neutrality” anymore than it let Canada, or Our Country sit idly by. Islam is bent on conquering the world; that includes the USA.

I haven’t seen the actual cartoon, even though I tried to look it up. The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) will not endorse any form of pornography, but we affirm that free speech does defend political satire, religious criticism and Christian Speech. CPoW affirms the rule of Law, even if you don’t like a newspaper; you have no right to murder its publishers and writers.

One can’t stay on high alert forever, as the fact that Charlie Hebdo had two guards assigned to protect that staff, who were among the first to be overpowered. One must go on the offense and destroy Islam, root and branch. The Islamic religion is as aggressive as the Third Reich, and it is time for it to be destroyed. Ask yourself, how many ships were sunk by NAZI submarines in 1946? How many people were murdered in NAZI concentration camps in 1946? The answer is none, because Hitler was dead, and the regime was destroyed.

In Germany and Austria today, the NAZI party is outlawed, statues of Hitler are outlawed, and the NAZI salute is outlawed. It is time for Islam to be outlawed. It is time to imagine a world without Islam. That doesn’t mean one billion dead people, but it does mean one billion people who will improve their behavior. It is time to imagine a world where if you don’t follow “the Prophet,” you won’t be killed, and it is time imagine a world where you can go to the kosher store, and come back to your family with a bag of groceries and not in a body-bag.

    Wow! I would say this piece by Riley Hood demonstrates my description of the C.P on an earlier post, “a band of Calvinist theocratic lunatics” to be pretty accurate. I mean, let us look at what Hood is calling for in this article, “One must go on the offense and destroy Islam, root and branch.” That sounds like a call for the mass genocide of the followers of Islam. Hood tries to draw comparisons between modern day Islam and Nazi Germany, but let’s analyze that real quick. Here Hood is calling for the mass genocide, the eradication of, Semitic people. That sounds a lot like Nazi Germany to me. Furthermore, Hood, a member of the Constitution Party, writes “It is time for Islam to be outlawed.” Let us ask ourselves, how is it that a member of the “Constitution Party” calls for a religion to be outlawed. I don’t think that I have to remind anyone that the very first amendment to our Constitution, the first in the list of our Bill of Rights reads as follows “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” What blatant hypocrisy! This also proves what I’ve been saying for sometime now, the Constitution Party doesn’t base it’s platform on the Constitution at all! Nor does it have any intention on fighting for “constitutionally limited government” While this party rails against Islam and “sharia law” it will do everything it can to fight for the implementation of levitical law. I’d add also that Hood displays blatant ignorance on the subject of Islam. Condemning Islam because of the actions taken by violent extremist, who are outliers if we’re honest, who carry out acts of terrorism under the guise of Islam is as about as sensical as commending all of Christianity because of the actions taking by Timothy McVeigh and the KKK.

    Quoth Joshua Fauver:

    “how is it that a member of the ‘Constitution Party’ calls for a religion to be outlawed.”

    My guess is that he’ll pull a trick I’ve seen a lot of right-wingers try lately: He’ll assert that Islam is a political ideology, not a “real” religion.

    It’s not a stretch for the Constitution Party; they don’t classify speech/press they dislike as speech/press, either (see their position on pornography, for example).

    The “Constitution” Party bears roughly the same relation to the US Constitution as the “cherry cordials” you buy at Wal-Mart bear to to the liqueurs called “cordials.” They usually don’t have any actual booze in them at all and if they do it’s just a taste.

    That’d be an interesting assertion. I mean, what is the definition of “religion”? Dictionary defines religion as the following, “1.a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. 2. a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects:” Merriam Webster defines it as, “the belief in a god or in a group of gods: an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods” So I don’t see anyway that on could make the argument that Islam is political ideology and not a religion. Also, if they do want to make that argument then they do so at their own peril. For one they’ll point to Sharia Law and the mixing of religious an natural law as the evidence for their claim. By that logic, so to is Judaism and Christianity a “political ideology” and not a “religion”. by virtue of Levitical law and the Constitution Party’s on platform which acknowledges the divinity of God and so on and so forth.

    Yep, Mr. Hood has thrown the First Amendment, and a LOT of what the founding fathers said about religious liberty, out the window.

  5. Cody Quirk

    Granted, I’m no big fan of Islam myself, yet what Hood is advocating here is outright fascism- something I just can’t go for.

  6. Cody Quirk

    FYI Josh, Hood isn’t just a member, he’s the State Chairman of the Wisconsin CP- that says a lot.

    It would appear ATM also hasn’t bothered to really study the religion of Islam or what it teaches. Islam wants to conquer the world? Explain to me then why the Arab Muslim nation of Jordan, which has made peace with Israel, is flying air strikes against ISIS? (Or IS, or ISIL or whoever the hell they are) Explain why Egypt, another Arab Muslim nation that has made peace with Israel, has also flown airstrikes against ISIS? Explain then Qatar, another Arab Muslim nation, has flown airstrikes against ISIS? Explain why the UAE, Arab Muslim nation, is flying airstrikes against ISIS? Explain the strong U.S relationship with an Arab Muslim nations like Pakistan? Tell me about the last time Turkey, a Muslim nation, tried to conquer the world? How about Indonesia? Oh, what about Yemen? Oman? Malaysia?

    In the years immediately after 9/11, I encountered at least a half dozen libertarians, at libertarian meetings and conventions, whose views on Muslims were no less extreme than Hood’s. Who talked of a necessary war against “the Caliphate.”

    When I mentioned that there are a billion Muslims, and we can’t kill them all, one libertarian retorted, “We sure can!”

    Oh yes, there was a lot of crazy talk among libertarians in the 2001-03 period. The crazies quieted some as the Iraq War turned into a quagmire.

    But I still run into the occasional libertarian Islamophobe. Objectivists are especially loopy in that regard.

    “It would appear ATM also hasn’t bothered to really study the religion of Islam or what it teaches.”

    Bunch of pissed off Muslims fly plains into buildings & blow themselves up and some people think it represents the entire religion. Similar to how people think WBC, Peter LaBarbera, Pat Robertson, and, well, Riley J. Hood represent Christianity. True, as far as I know Mr. Hood hasn’t killed anyone, but then a thousand years or so ago Christians did kill in the name of their religion. There’s some inspiring & beautiful passages in both the Bible and the Qur’an, and there’s some antiquated and horrifying stuff in both books as well. Regardless of what any book of faith says or what anyone does in the name of their faith, religion is a peaceful exercise and we should respect it as such, while also condemning those who commit violence for any reason other than self or national defense. And using either the Bible or the Qur’an or any other religious text to justify a law is folly. Church and state must be kept separate if we want to be free.

  10. Joshua Fauver

    Jed, I’d agree. My point was that mainstream Islam, just like mainstream Christianity and Judaism, isn’t teaching people to conquer the world. The religion itself isn’t a threat to us or to anyone else.

    Jed hits the nail on the head here.

    As for Hood, I hate to sound like Andy, but I have to wonder if some of these guys aren’t plants designed to make the CP look bad. Or maybe they really are that deranged. Who knows? In any case, Hood’s columns are certainly good for a laugh!
