You can feel it in the air. The State of Texas is gearing up to take down one of their own, and there is no telling what U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will unleash on Texan, Crockett Keller. Keller is a realtor and he and his wife own a gun dealership. He teaches Concealed Carry for licensing. He has/had a radio ad in his local area advertising his class, and said he would not teach Socialist Liberals who voted for Obama or Muslims. And he cited what the law requires of him – teach only those who can make ” knowledgeable” and “prudent” decisions. See a video interview with Keller below.
The egregiously Progressive Southern Poverty Law Center is after him. In a phone interview they say they had with Mr. Keller a couple of days ago, they quote him as follows (I doubt SPLC will stop here):
Asked why he doesn’t want Muslims in his class, Keller said, “I have a particular philosophy about concealed carry. I take it very seriously.”
He continued, “If you are a devout Muslim, you have the right to lie, cheat, steal, kill, do whatever you want to in order to promote Islam. Which means in the United States, if you are a devout Muslim, how can you pledge allegiance to the United States of America? You can’t. The ideologies are diametrically opposed.
“I consider all Muslims our enemies, no matter how nice they are. … I could not trust one and I, as an instructor, am not going to teach one how to shoot a gun and aid him in getting a license.”
“I call it exercising my right to choose who I instruct in how to use a dangerous weapon,” said Keller…
On Thursday, Keller defended the ad. “I’m not going to do it, I will give up my license to teach before I will teach them.”
The “them” Keller refers to are voters of President Obama or non-Christian Muslims.
“The fact is if you are a devout Muslim then you cannot be a true American,” said Keller. “Why should I arm these people to kill me, that’s suicide.”
Consider how many Muslims are receiving pilot training in the U.S. How many of us want to fly commercial with a Muslim at the stick. Crockett Keller is not alone in believing that the Koran refuses Muslims the right to be loyal to the United States. He is right to say that their holy book gives the right to lie, cheat and steal to deceive the infidel (you and me). There are Koranic reasons Muslims can be compelled to lie, to never take anyone outside the “faith” as a friend, to conceal your identity as a follower of Muhammad. “Scheming” is following in the way of Allah for Muslims, because “Allah is the best of schemers.” The Koran says that “inventing good information” is not a lie. To make “peace” you can lie (deceive). If your fellow Americans are your enemy, lying is permissible. If a Muslim wants to do something permissible in the Koran, lying to circumvent any intention to stop them reaching their goal is endorsed. A Muslim is “obligated” to lie to do that which is “permissible.”
The above is paraphrased from The Religion of Peace. There are many sites where you will find the same information. Here is more:
Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers in order to defeat them. The two forms are:
Taqiyya – Saying something that isn’t true.
Kitman – Lying by omission. An example would be when Muslim apologists quote only a fragment of verse 5:32 (that if anyone kills “it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”) while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse (and the next) mandate murder in undefined cases of “corruption” and “mischief.”
Though not called Taqiyya by name, Muhammad clearly used deception when he signed a 10-year treaty with the Meccans that allowed him access to their city while he secretly prepared his own forces for a takeover. The unsuspecting residents were conquered in easy fashion after he broke the treaty two years later, and some of the people in the city who had trusted him at his word were executed.
Another example of lying is when Muhammad used deception to trick his personal enemies into letting down their guard and exposing themselves to slaughter by pretending to seek peace. This happened in the case of Ka’b bin al-Ashraf (as previously noted) and again later against Usayr ibn Zarim, a surviving leader of the Banu Nadir tribe, which had been evicted from their home in Medina by the Muslims.
Jihadists today have spoken of the usefulness of deceptive practices. Remember that the next time you see a Muslim spokesman on television professing his friendship with non-Muslim Americans and his loyalty to the United States. Of course, he may be telling the truth — but he many not be telling the whole truth or he may be just lying…
[Spencer quoting Ibn Kathir] “Allah prohibited his believing servants from becomming supporters of the disbelievers, or to take them as comrades with whom they develop friendships, rather than the believers.” However, exempted from this rule were “those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, nut never inwardly.
So to all the outraged commentors on my original post about Crockett Keller, wake up and pay attention. You may know many good and loyal to the U.S. Muslims, but there are truths they have the holy right not to tell. Truths you will never know, if you don’t know how the Koran guides their lives.
Crockett Keller is spot-on. He doesn’t want to teach Concealed Carry to those who have a loyalty to something other than this country. And he doesn’t want to teach Concealed Carry to hose he deems not to have “prudent” reasoning.
If Keller’s free speech is respected, he will survive the coming storm of hate from Progressives, but there is little reason to believe the hammer coming down him will be stayed by prudent reasoning.
Gawker calls Keller “a cardboard cut-out” who spends his money on “boots and hats and spurs and guns,” (and what is there to complain out with boots and hats and spurs and guns in your closet???), and says it is “illegal to refuse to teach people based on religious grounds.”
The fact is, it is just too painful for freedom-loving Americas to believe the Koran. It is easier to ignore their holy word. Who wants to spend time reading about Muhammad? Who wants to know the truth of him? Who is willing to give up a video game or two to gain that knowledge?
The answer is few. If you are among the many, you will rue the day your children and grandchildren will be forced to face the problem of the Muslim jihadist, otherwise known as your next door neighbor, or the father of your little girl’s classmate, or the imam of the mosque now located in the abandoned school down the street – in the neighborhood you chose to keep your children safe.
The Texas Department of Public Health is involved now, and will determine whether Keller has broken a law based on religious freedom – of which Keller likely has none. We’ll see if authorities acknowledge the fact that Islam is a government, as well as a “religion.” Prayers and courage to Crockett Keller and his family.
