A lot has been made of how the young find Friends homophobic shite and Only Fools and Horses racist shit. Regardless that my own view is closer to shit regardless of modern mores. Nonetheless it’s worth reflecting that this story like much of the anti Muslim and poor hating in the media is based on very little. There has been no poll or vote just 1 or 2 comments.
This covers much of modern day chattering nonsense on all sides where often a single example or series of comments is used to label entire generations, political viewpoints and religions. This is not the 0% poll of say UK Muslims who thought Homosexuality was moral and 52% who thought it jailable. That was a genuinely chilling fundamentalist view from a sizeable minority.
The point is we need to avoid instant opinions on groups with nothing more than anecdotal evidence we have. There is far more evidence our entitled olders don’t give a shit for anyone else. Indeed I find much of the young’s view of the world and difference at worst naive but mostly uplifting.
A popular meme is to contrast the European attitude to accepting Muslim refugees and other migrants because they are like the Jews so horribly let down in the 1930s. The habit of otherwise liberal westerners to equate Jews and Muslims and essentially challenge people not to be the made up Islamaphobia label. Continue reading “No Comparison”
It’s easy to suggest that the media or whoever are responsible for the eclipse of the ‘left’ parties of Europe. Irrelevant even when in power to be frank see Brown or Hollande. I am referring to New Labour here rather than whatever welcome Corbyn is destroying with random precision. This is a more general attack than on a particular party and to be honest could be used against most ‘liberal’ thinkers. It is also in the context of seeming liberals supporting a ruling ideology that forsook the poor and claimed GDP growth as Manna achieved by stoking the purchase of 2nd hand assets and the land they stood on as improved living standards.

57% of the British public suggested that they would support a Burqa or Niqab ban. Now a good many would ban any made up word if it was associated with Islam such is the reputation of that religion. Continue reading “Burqa Ban?”
This is a quote from a piece in the Irish Independent :-
Judging from the media coverage of Labour MP Jo Cox’s murder, terrorism is now a word that is confined to describing violence committed by brown-skinned Muslims.
Bare in mind some of the left spends silly amounts of time denying that Islamic terrorism is Islamic. People who claim to have a book dictated to a 7th century pedophile that gives them the right to kill gay people and women for having sex is not in and of itself a problem. Now they turn this around and try to point out the supposed other sides hypocrisy without acknowledging their own – it’s a display of mental gymnastics Nadia Comaneci could only dream of.
Also note the attempt to inject race into the so called religion of peace’s issues. The fundamental problem with Islamic terrorism is the fundamentals of Islam to quote Sam Harris – it’s not a racial issue. It’s nothing to do with their skin colour. Indeed not all Islamic terrorists are Brown.
Are the Regressive Left & Right here saying Islamic Terrorism is terrorism and Right wing terrorism is terrorism too? That would actually be a step forward. Probably not. Easier for both sides to tarnish the mentally ill?
It’s why the Left are losing the votes of the working class to people who if they do not speak the truth at least acknowledge the obvious problem. How can you take seriously the left (or right) Cnutists? Those who want to believe a group who so do not share their values share their values? A group so hung on celebrating diversity they prefer their fantasy over the reality of Islamic scripture and attitudes.
Orlando shows many on the left unable to comprehend that someone brought up to hate gay people by hate preachers and his father was primarily influenced by his religion, Islam. That he may have been crazy and gay himself merely what turned him from a confused hater into a murder and terrorist. It’s beyond ridiculous to write stuff about homophobia when over half UK Muslims believe it should be illegal. You’re leaving the argument to the right with ‘virtue signalling’.

US Author Sam Harris argues that Bush and co just wanted to open Starbucks on every corner in Iraq and that their intent was benign or good whether the results were monstrous or not. That the intent of many who believe the Koran is to install a fascist Caliphate and Sharia. Thus Western leaders are superior to the perverted sex obsessed Islamic murderers of the Middle East, Paris and Brussels and their child raping warlord oracle. I will say now that our past failures should not obfuscate the need to rid the world of Political Islam and the more aggressive interpretations of the warlord’s handbook. The people involved may consciously even think that was their motive yet they continue to profit from it and they continue to make the similar mistakes to achieve nothing, President after President.
