Ann Barnhardt: The Boston Speech.

Wow. She is something amazing. Thanks for sharing, Gerard.

Thank you Ann. It is a sad day that people who speak truth such as yours are labeled as bigoted and the words classified as hate crimes. I pray that I have the courage to stand with you when the executioners come for I too fear that the day is nigh. G.d save the Republic.

Is Anne a modern Joan of Arc? If not, she'll do until the real one appears. Inspirational is what she is.

Whether you're religious or otherwise, given the geopolitics of today, the message is eloquent, urgent and riveting. I've reproduced the transcript on the London Spectator Coffee House Wall blog. Thank you Ann and thanks to Gerard for the txcript. It should be disseminated to the widest possible constituency. It will be interesting to see whether anyone dares fisk it. They should bottle the juice from it and sell it as a tonic. High octane rocket fuel!

Btw - we love you too Ann - so take care!

Boy, she's got the crazy eyes.

Eric Blair

Yes - she could wipe out a whole squad of AQ insurgents with just that glare. Moreover, according to her, that's just her lovin' look. Imagine what she would be like, at 10 yards, all riled up and rarin' to go!

Bend over to tie your shoelaces and she could neuter you with two deftly wielded King's James's editions of the Holy Bible and finish the job off by stuffing the Koran up your jacksie, with a shout of 'Allahu Akbar' for good measure. Go girl!

If you have not viewed the video Ann did of her Koran burn, you need to. This woman is a prophet.

Thank you for the post Gerard.

Nothing can be said that can do more for enlightenment than what a finger pointing at the moon can do for seeing the moon.

All our vaunted knowledge and creature understanding of the great mysteries of the Universe, of "G_d", fall short. All we really know is rooted in our being in our bodies which ultimately leaves us with a very finite perspective. Nonetheless, I strongly believe that embedded in the Star of David is the ultimate existential secret. Getting it out is the problem; the unending search is our lot if we have the grace to accept it. God descends into matter in order to reascend as a self realized spirit: The story of Christ.

Nice to see they let Ann out of the Asylum.

Dear Ann Barnhardt,

The choice for Marx by so-called Christians and so-called Jews is absolutely a declaration that they are no longer Christian or Jew, but disciples of Marx. Each time I ask one of these whom I have met whether they have actually read the Communist Manifesto, they answer sheepishly no. So I obtain a copy for them -- easy to do on the Internet these days -- and the first tenet for lots of limo liberals makes them choke. No more "my" property? What? It comes as a shock to them, and this is a toe hold for further questions. Simple, basic questions. The simple fact is that the Left is blind to its own dreams because it does not understand them, but has been taught it is chic to wear a Che Guevarra t-shirt and spout platitudes. But once a few simple traps of truth are set, they can only respond in two ways. They can flee you -- for being informed, while they are not. Or they can keep talking, and perhaps learn a little more about how gullible they have been. I live and work in Europe, use this simple approach, and have overcome great "chic" Leftist prejudice by only asking them to read their own stuff. They choke on it. It is a lesson worth copying.

Best regards. Merci beaucoup. Vielen Dank. Mille grazie.

What an admirable American!

Posted by Randy at May 18, 2011 11:31 AM

Wait. This is the whackjob woman who put bacon inside the Qu'ran and then burnt it, right? Yeah, like she's a shining example of religious tolerance. Idiot.

Posted by Nonclueless Catholic at May 18, 2011 11:32 AM

Ann, I will stand shoulder to shoulder with you… until my magazines are empty, my bayonet blade is broken in two, my body is riddled with bullets and my Tactical Bacon is exhausted….

The war brewing against the co-mingling forces of Islam and Marxism will outlast ethnic boundaries and borders, governments and secular law as it infiltrates the West and strips away the remnants of universal justice and truth upon wich all effective democratic law has been based.

Your clarity and faith-inspired sense of purpose motivates and reassures me to stand fast behind my worldview (which mirrors yours) and to increase the pace of my physical preparations and training should the inevitable balloon “go up” in my lifetime.

May God bless you and those who follow your conviction in this darkening age of evil on God’s green Earth.

May the heart of Mother America find its Judeo/Christian conscience and courage before it’s too late.

I'd put some bacon in her Koran if you know what I mean.

After saving 3000 Jews from the Holocaust, my father's memory is about to be translated into English for the first time. I am a Christian in America and working on a companion volume related to Judeo-Christian Civilization (see some previews at, and would very much like to collaborate and get feedback on all the same issues as in this speech. Ann, if you read this, please contact me asap, anyone else also welcome !

Posted by Michael Calmeyer at May 18, 2011 12:44 PM

that said, I would like to avoid Koran-burning, just as I would like to avoid Bible-burning by our military under Obama orders to be politically correct, this is in my view nothing but marketing. I believe in marketing as I believe in Christ, but we are known by the standards of our civilization, and that one is voluntary. Where we may not compromise is in our own beliefs and traditions of running a culture of life rather than a culture of death, of free enterprise rather than fascist statism.

You don't "tolerate" evil, you stomp it out; you don't schmooze with with evildoers, you blow their brains out.

Get a clue before you end up having to choose the sword or allah.

Rumor is......the Navy Seal who took out Bin Laden was Ann Barnhardt. And she did it on her lunch break!

We love you too Ann!

Posted by Jacques at May 21, 2011 6:15 AM

Thank you Ann. While you are shouting to the world I am shouting to cool aid drinkers in an effort to save them from yet another "Insidious Black Ops" designed to deliver unto Caesar that which he thinks is his, "the Patriots". We are on the same page in multiple books. I have been saying for quite some time, it's the Mothers who will stand this time. It's high time this nation understand that "spare the rod" is lunacy and a good many people need time out or a good old fashioned "Butt Whoopin"!

I love you too!

When Christians are permitted to build churches in Saudi Arabia, and to proselytize there, then you might have a case for tolerance. When Christians in Indonesia don't have to have armed guards in front of their churches to keep out potential Muslim bombers, then there might be room to say that Ann is being unreasonable. When cartoonists can make caricatures of Mohammed without fear, just as they can now of the Pope or Protestant religious figures, then I might be willing to say that Ann is going too far. Until then, I don't see anywhere that her statements are either inaccurate or out of line.

Christ schmoozed with evil doers. Also, he blew no brains out.

Christ brought a radical transformative message, but he also brought a message of inclusion and forgiveness. Much as I am a soldier and defender of the faith, Christ's message wasn't tactical.

I don't understand why I never heard of you Ann until today. It came to me in a email from a buddy that has just come home from Iraq and has had his fill of the middle east. I was surprised to see that you are a good ole Coloradon. I am not as versed on the bible but was raised Catholic
and I have never heard so much in so little space.
I had a good lesson, however, I am so upset with our country right now and I can't figure out why no-one else is and after reading the letter, I have some hope that there are people out there with a brain that can get this administration out of business and I use the word administration loosly as I believe they are just puppets being run by a very rich man that hates this country and wants to rule it HIS WAY.
I very much would like to meet you or at least talk to you thru email and then see if I can be of any help to you. I use my email and my list to enlighten the people about just this very thing, but you do it so much eloquently.
