authors note: this is a work of fiction pure and simple. I was ruminating on the reaction to Michele Bachmann’s “warning” of Muslim infiltration of the high reaches of the American government. I have no idea if Bachmann is onto something or is as nutty as her critics say she is. I couldn’t help but to compare this with the McCarthyism of a generation ago, which was also ridiculed and shunned, and continues to be even after many of his claims were substantiated. There are those, and I would consider myself among them that would conclude that we are in a sense living with the successful results of the very communist infiltration McCarthy warned about. It’s just called something else these days…
Also, I heard a recent news story that took me a little by surprise. Now that Egypt is being ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood for all intents and purposes there are renewed calls for the destruction of the pyramids - all of them. It seemed incomprehensible to me, but is it? So, out of these two idea's comes this short story.

Many have asked how we came to this day, Allah willing, this glorious day. Today we gather here at what was once called the Mount Rushmore National Memorial to watch the final eradication of American jingoism. Our brother, the honorable Keith Ellison, 90 years old today, will push the button that will bring down the faces of these shameful men. As it was last year in St. Louis when the Gateway Arch crashed to the ground all will cheer. Finally the yoke of American imperialism will be lifted from these lands. The celebration will ring far and wide.
Some will remember many years ago when our brothers and sisters in the lands of Egypt erased the tombs of Pharaohs from the face of the Earth. The pyramids they once called great crumbled to the ground under the power of Allah’s armies. The same can be said of the Eifel Tower and Big Ben back in the ‘30’s. Neither looked very impressive as a pile of rubble before the throngs of Allah. Who among you can forget when the Kremlin lie in ruins under the feet of Allah’s mighty Chechnyan Army. When this day is done we will move on to the wall in China. The Christians there are as weak and disorganized as the government is corrupt. Soon, very soon, the world will be Allah’s, all of it. It has been written, so it shall be.
There are those here in the land of America still clinging to their guns and their false religions as our great brother Obama once said, but they too shall be rooted out. The cities are ours; the countryside will soon be ours too. The Christians hiding in the backwaters, hills and mountains are like the vermin in grain silos carrying disease and spoiling all that is good and righteous. Their numbers are great but their power in these lands diminishes daily, having been outlawed in nearly every jurisdiction. They had their chances, being forewarned of our coming many times, not the least of which was the glorious Tuesday of September the 11th. The pathetic lashing out by the war criminal Bush only slowed us down. Just like the McCarthyism of 1900’s was ignored and ridiculed so too was the Bachmannism of the 20’s. We were then and are now simply unstoppable.
As the last vestiges of the despicable document the American’s once venerated as their “constitution” was being replaced by the righteousness of Sharia did the final truth become clear to the non-believers. Covert, submit or die – this was all that was left for the infidels. Yes, many had to die, yes, much was destroyed, but the inevitable outcome was foretold. Today, as we stand before these faces of American imperialism the final nail is driven into the coffin of the United States of America.
Keith Ellison, a man of courage and honor, a humble servant of Allah, was the first Muslim to be elected to the Congress. He helped usher in the new era, the era ignited in the second term of Brother Obama where the folly of capitalism and freedom was brought into the light of Allah and struck down. Many infidels suffered, but a great many began to see the truth. As an elder statesman Mr. Ellison guided many young Muslim men into positions of power until the ridiculous practice of allowing women to govern was finally ended in 2038. How fitting that he should be the one to end the American era on this Earth.
