How do we de-Islamize America? While it's not easy (because of politically correct hysteria) it's simple. It must include three steps.
1. Immediately suspend Islamic immigration
Can this be done constitutionally? Of course it can. The Constitution gives to Congress unilateral authority over “the Migration or Importation of such Persons” it thinks are “proper to admit” (Article 1, Sec. 9). If Congress wishes to suspend Islamic immigration, it can do so tomorrow.
2. No more mosques
Mosques are the incubators of jihadist ideology. The Center for Security Policy determined some time ago that 95% of all American Muslims who attend mosque on a weekly basis attend a mosque which either distributes literature or features imams who advocate the use of violence in spreading Islam.
Can stopping the building of mosques be done constitutionally? Of course it can, if we use the Constitution given to us by the Founders and not the one mangled by the courts. Under the Founders’ Constitution, the States have unilateral authority to regulate religious expression within their borders.
Joseph Story, in his Commentaries on the Constitution, put it this way: “Thus, the whole power over the subject of religion is left exclusively to the state governments, to be acted upon according to their own sense of justice, and the state constitutions.” If states want to ban the building of any more mosques, they certainly can.
And the First Amendment protects the right “of the people peaceably to assemble.” If any mosque assembles for anything other than peaceful purposes, it has no First Amendment right to meet at all.
3. No more Muslims in the military
Serving the United States military is a privilege, not a right. Congress has complete authority “to make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces” (Article 1, Section 8). If Congress believes it’s a mistake to allow individuals who have a sacred duty to kill American infidels to serve in our military, they certainly can prevent it. The massacre at Ft. Hood is all the evidence we need that such a restriction is timely and necessary.
Islam, as Brussels, Paris, and 9/11 demonstrate, is the Ebola virus of culture. Everywhere it has been allowed to take root since 630 AD it has brought with it violence and oppression.
Preventing carriers of this cultural virus from entering America is simply common sense, as well as the essence of compassion for American citizens who should not have to live in a society that must live in constant fear of Islamic violence.
The problem, or course, is that we cannot identify carriers of this virus until it’s too late. This simply means we must be careful with them all.
