THE POLITICS OF FEAR:

My last Editorial concerning the THREAT of Islam to our lifestyle, FREEDOMS and National Safety, elicited no shortage of COMMENTS and private Emails. But, the most stunning focus of many of the communications I received including the ones that were posted in the COMMENTS Section of my BLOG, were concerns for my safety.

IMAGINE THAT?

It is beyond belief, that in our societies, that so many people’s GUT reaction to this Editorial included FEAR amongst the readers . . . that I will somehow be in danger physically and financially, because I wrote NOT just an OPINION, but the ABSOLUTE TRUTH about the history of Islam, and its consequences that are not only well documented by NON Islamists, but are part of Islam’s own published words and deeds in THEIR Koran.

My GREATEST HORROR is NOT about possible RETRIBUTION from the Islamists and LEFTIST Apologists for the Islamists’ extraordinary BAD behavior - carried out and made public in my Editorial, in the name of ISLAM, MOHAMED and ALLAH . . . IT IS ALL ABOUT how fearful we have become of stating the TRUTH.

REGULATING FREE SPEECH IS THE TOOL OF THE TYRANT:

I’ve been reading and covering the debate amongst the FCC (equivalent to Canada’s CRTC) to “regulate” YOUTUBE and BLOGS like this one. It appears that half of the SIX-Member FCC Board . . . want to regulate online political speech.

I BET IT COMES AS NO SURPRISE to the FOLK who read this BLOG, that the THREE FCC Members who want to regulate FREE SPEECH online are LEFTIST Democrats. While, the THREE Members who will NEVER agree to regulating FREE SPEECH online, are Conservative Republicans. NO SHOCK THERE.

TYRANTS GO TO WAR AGAINST FREEDOM IN TWO DISTINCTIVE WAYS:

1 – First . . . Tyrants REGULATE communication. In Nazi Germany for example, it was ILLEGAL to have a NON-REGISTERED Printing Press of any kind.

2 – Tyrannical governments remove all abilities for FREE PEOPLE to defend themselves from government by BEARING ARMS. We can look again to the NAZIS who made it ILLEGAL . . . SPECIFICALLY for Jews to own and Bear Arms in a law passed on November 11, 1938.

The FACT that so many of the readers of Galganov.com are worried about my safety because of my expression of FREE SPEECH, and that half (LEFTISTS) of the FCC want to REGULATE what I can say, where I can say it, how I can say it, and when I can say it, coupled with an almost MESSIANIC anti-GUN campaign by the LEFT . . . IS INDEED THE FOUNDATION OF TYRANNY.

LET’S MAKE THIS CLEAR:

There is no shame whatsoever in being concerned and fearful. FEAR is what keeps us focused on our game. BUT IT'S HOW WE DEAL WITH OUR FEARS that must be paramount to our lives.

Many of us cower. Some of us speak in whispers. And many will attack the people who stand up where they won’t. But, COURAGE . . . in my mind is measured by what we do when we are MOST frightened, which DEFINES every one of us.

I’ve had my life threatened by people who would have actually done real harm to me and mine. I’ve been threatened with all manner of lawsuits. Anne (my wife) and I even had to live with ARMED Security on and off our property for a number of years, because of my position against ETHNOCENTRIC NATIONALISM against English speakers in the Province of Quebec. BUT I NEVER COWERED . . . and Anne never asked me to relent, even though she too was plenty scared.

It’s OK to be SCARED . . . but it’s MORE important to be BRAVE, SINCE TYRANNY NEVER DEFEATS FREEDOM WHEN PATRIOTS NEVER SURRENDER.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

RIGHT ON!!! I read many who have left Islam. They all say pretty much the same. Freedom FOR SURE is not free. Big difference between truth & cowardice. Ignorance can be fixed. You are a fixer. Thanks for your insight & knowledge. Never give up, never give in. You won't. Neither will I.

It's also many, if not most, Muslims in our midst who must be scared. They live in fear (especially the women), fear of condemnation (and death) if they stop pretending to "believe".

I was once told that there is a time to fight and a time not to fight, based on the strength of the enemy and chances of winning. Today there is no choice. We must fight and win. We can not afford to lose.

"IT IS ALL ABOUT how fearful we have become of stating the TRUTH. REGULATING FREE SPEECH IS THE TOOL OF THE TYRANT. ... Itís OK to be SCARED ... but itís MORE important to be BRAVE, SINCE TYRANNY NEVER DEFEATS FREEDOM WHEN PATRIOTS NEVER SURRENDER." You said it all with those words. My biggest concern is a possibility a majority of all politicians serve self, not the citizens. Since they make the rules, where will we be when greed rules 65%+ of them? They are building their own army.

I thoroughly agree with your statements, Howard. I think that we should restrict their entry into the USA and kick their sorry, "I'll be nice" BUTTS out of this beautiful country. Do we still have bounties in this country? Just asking...

Howard: You once wrote, "We can choose to be silent in FEAR, or we can face our FEARS and SAY and DO what must be said--FOR ME, IT IS AN EASY CHOICE". Call me "NAIVE", but I would hope that WHEN the Republicans win the Senate back next week, that Congress can, somehow, start to mend the "damages" which have been done to our Country in the past six years. As much as we have to cope with our FEARS, we also have to HOPE and PRAY that we will be able to be proud of our Country again! Thank you!

Killing of the Canadian Soldier at the Cenotaph. Hundreds of Canadians laid flowers; thousands lined the funeral route to Hamilton. Where are those same people when it comes to standing up and expressing serious concerns and fear of Muslims who have forced the abolition of many Canadian traditions and Customs, like Christmas, singing, music in schools, halloween etc. Imams were cautioned against against attacks on Mosques; soldiers not to wear uniforms in public. Are we so afraid?

I smiled at your editorial - we share the same courage to stand up and be counted. Obama & Dems tried to shut down talk radio and the internet not supportive of their ideologies, with backlashes. Since 9/11/01, we've criticized Islam and Muslim radicals. Constitution and Bill of Rights are intact, for now. The 2013 NDAA and EO's may end such freedoms under martial law...next 2 years will be perilous in the US. Obama has nasty, angry, hateful plans for us after midterm elections; costs w/be dear.

Howard, I see Islam as a devouring force of evil setting the stage. For Satan to accomplish his One World Power. Christians call it the Anti Christ. And there is no doubt their hatred for Christians has been made evident for centuries. Israel Has felt their bitter hatred since the birth of Ishmael. And yet as you say through ignorance. Both believe there is a possibility of co-existence with Muslims. The father of the lie is their, Master Allah is Satan himself.

I can remember a few years ago, when terrorists were strapping on explosives in Israel and you flew their just to show support, when other people stayed away. You showed support and courage then and your the same person today.

Hello Howard. There are many "interpretations" of the Koran from unofficial sources. It would be welcomed if an official and accurate interpretation of the Koran was made available. I confess that I am ignorant of the word of the Koran and that even if I read certain sections I would most likely not understand its' meaning. There are many that refer to references to the Koran when making their point but I think it would be a good thing if one could refer to an official and accepted site. Thanks.

According to Islam, the ONLY official version is the first book written, which takes precedence over all other subsequent publications. And any other writing of the Koran is considered to be BLASPHEMY. The original Koran makes most of the modern versions look tame by comparison - HG

I have read all of your comments, saved them, and admired your knack for telling it like it is. Keep up the good work. I reside in Texas, and we face the same problems. Semper Fi Howard.

Continue to be brave and couragous and tell the truth the way you see it. Of course people will try to keep you quiet...but....be true to yourself.

In defense of the police, not only are they spread thin they are employed to enforce laws that allow too much empathy to the "multi cultural" movement of the 80's. No one should fear speaking their opinion. Truth can be so threatening to those who prefer you live under a rock and shudder when you hear the boots hit the ground. Carry on Howard - truth is empowering.

"Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views." - William F. Buckley, Jr. There is a concerted effort to make the recent terrorist attacks into "mental illness". Anything but Islam. In Montreal, Muslims are worried about a backlash. Say anything about them and you are a racist Islamaphobe. Surely they have given us sufficient reason to not have an irrational fear, so there is no phobia. My free speech.

I didn't comment on your last editorial--really no reason why. Just that I couldn't have added more to it by saying anything. The editorial was straight to the point and about as honest and truthful as one can get. I'm with you Howard, I'm brave and a Patriot that will never surrender. You are right, it is O.K. to be scared, and they can throw at me what they want but I will always stand up for my freedom. And I appreciate your patriotism.

Howard I admire your courage to speak up and defend freedom. We are many here that will help you defend our rights to speak up. We must not stop speaking up against this tyranical govenment that Obama has created. If we can be of any help to protect you we are ready to act. I for one do regularely submit letters to the editor against what is happening here. God help you and protect you.

Good for you Howard and I appreciate anyone with enough guts to voice their opinion. I firmly believe that Canada should have a second amendment also, as our enemies can travel at will and are not subject to any controls or restrictions. The cops are just spread too thin to be able to control or expose everyone. Boyd Lundquist Courtenay, BC
