Steyn: “we are making ourselves a society too stupid to survive…”

Steyn: ‘In the Space of About 20 Minutes, We’ve Gone From ‘The Confederate Flag Is Racist’ to ‘The Star-Spangled Banner Is Racist”

Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” conservative commentator Mark Steyn reacted to the report that a Massachusetts librarian deemed the works of children’s book author Dr. Seuss as racist.

Steyn pointed out how things being deemed as racist as progressed in recent months, including the national anthem and Dr. Seuss.

“I think when you said, it’s trashing anything older than the milk in your fridge – that’s right, Tucker,” Steyn said. “This is like year zero in Cambodia. The world has to be created anew. So, in the space of about 20 minutes, we have gone from the Confederate flag is racist to ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ is racist. We’ve gone from General Lee is racist to Dr. Seuss is racist. We have gone from, ‘Way down on the levee in old Ala-bammy’ is minstrelsy to ‘The Cat in the Hat’ is minstrelsy, which is actually this librarian’s argument. I looked up the piece she referenced in the ‘Journal of Social Justice Librarians’ or whatever it is, and it is incredibly moronic. It is part of the dumbing down of American society.”

“The piece argues that the Cat in the Hat’s bow tie is meant to be an evocation of 19th-century racist minstrel shows,” he continued. “Now just off the top of my head, cartoon characters who wear bow ties — Porky Pig, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Huckleberry Hound. Yogi Bear doesn’t wear a bow, he wears a tie like me, but his boy sidekick Boo Boo the Bear wears a bow tie. Ambrosia, I think the name is, in ‘My Little Pony’ wears a bow tie. I’m not one of the many men in the western world who are obsessed with ‘My Little Pony’ and have ‘My Little Pony’ parties, but I happen to know this one character in ‘My Little Pony’ wears a bow tie. Cartoon characters wear bow ties. That has nothing to do the minstrel shows. We are making ourselves a society too stupid to survive, as that California’s student demonstrates if we go down this path.”

ISIS bride explains why she joined the group: “I came for the Jihad, for Sharia and the Islamic State”

Another head-scratcher for those who insist that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam or Sharia, and that those who joined it knew little and cared less about Islam.

“‘I Came for the Jihad’: Women Tell of Life in the Islamic State,” by Sara Manisera, Newsdeeply.com, September 29, 2017, thanks to Robert Spencer:

Khadija al-Humri came to Raqqa by choice.

“I came for the Jihad, for Sharia and the Islamic State,” the 29-year-old Tunisian woman said, roughly four years after leaving her hometown along with her first husband.

“I really believed that there was a state where we could live like the Prophet.”

But Raqqa was not all it was made out to be. Khadija’s first husband was killed in battles with the Free Syrian Army, and the widow was transferred to a dormitory were unmarried women wait to be selected by ISIS fighters.

“It was horrible … I had to get married if I wanted to leave that place,” she said.

Her disenchantment would be expounded by the time she remarried. She described rampant drug abuse and a thriving sex trade in a city where people were killed for no reason. She recalled clashes between ISIS fighters and described a group of French ISIS brides who used to abuse Captagon, an amphetamine-based drug nicknamed the “Jihadi Pill.”

“My second husband who was an ISIS fighter opened my eyes,” she said. “He told me that the [Islamic State] did not exist. We had made a big mistake.”

Australian do-gooders want to reimport these jihad b*tches and their brood. These people are insane.

Switzerland might deport Muslim hate preacher

Muslim ‘hate preacher’ has right to Swiss asylum revoked

A controversial Libyan Muslim preacher accused of spreading hate speech at a Biel mosque has officially had his right to asylum revoked by the Swiss authorities.

Thanks to the Religion of Peace

Ramadan has consistently refuted accusations of hate speech at the Biel mosque, arguing that his Arabic speech was mistranslated.

You be the judge:

«Oh Allah, destroy the enemies of Islam. Destroy the Jews, Christians, Hindus, the Russians and the Shia», cried Abu Ramadan  in Ar’Rahmen-Mosque in Bielle.

Being an asylum seeker in Switzerland, he’s received more than 600’000 Swiss Francs in aid.

The decision of Switzerland’s Federal Administrative Court in St Gallen is final and cannot be appealed. However, whether or not the 64-year-old Libyan national, Abu Ramadan, will be allowed to keep is residence permit and stay in Switzerland is up to the Bernese authorities to decide. Ramadan currently resides in Nidau, canton Bern.

Ramadan, who obtained Swiss asylum in 1998 and has drawn regular social security benefits for the past 13 years, holds a Libyan passport and has made some dozen visits to his homeland since 2013. The last trip, in 2017, lasted over a month. The Swiss court argued that Ramadan made these journeys despite knowing that a recognised refugee must not return to his or her country of origin, as this is a violation of refugee status.

The court’s ruling confirms an earlier decision by the State Secretariat for Migration on Ramadan’s asylum status.

The story of Ramadan’s “hate preaching” at the Ar’Rahman mosque in Biel, canton Bern, was first broken by Swiss Public Radio, SRF, and the Tages Anzeiger in August when a recording was circulated that featured the preacher calling for the destruction of Jews, Christians, Russians and Shia Muslims. However, Ramadan denied being an imam at the mosque, and argued that he had not been engaging in hate speech, citing an inaccurate translation of his words from Arabic.

AN Islamic terrorist, a Vietnamese drug trafficker, and a Bangladeshi conman are among criminals whose visa cancellations or refusals have recently been overturned.

They are among a number of cases since last month in which the Administrative Appeals Tribunal has overruled decisions by Immigration Minister Peter Dutton’s delegates.

AAT members ruled that in two of the cases Australians would be happy to give the criminals “a second chance” by not deporting them.

Melanesian, Animist and Christian West Papua Indigenes Declare They Want Independence from their Muslim Rulers: The UN Puts Its Fingers in Its Ears

by Christina McIntosh

Whilst our reliably-Islamophile press and any number of Useful Idiot intellectuals predictably wail and wring their hands  on behalf oft the so-called ‘Rohingya’ Muslims in Myanmar – whose ‘plight’ appears for the moment to have entirely eclipsed the previously-most fashionable ‘progressive’ cause du jour, that of the so-called ‘poor “Palestinians”‘ [i.e. of  a carefully re-branded subset of the local Arab Muslims in and around Israel, who have been used for decades by the Ummah as stalking-horses, much as the Sudetendeutsch were used by Hitler against Czechoslovakia] – the ethnically Melanesian indigenous peoples of West Papua, overwhelmingly and ancestrally, historically non-Muslim (originally animist, now mostly Christian) have been and are being crushed by ethnically-Malay, overwhelmingly-Muslim and suffused-with-Islam Indonesia, which has not a shred of a real historic claim to any part of the island of New Guinea.  If people-group A and people-group B, historically different and separate in every imaginable way, were for a period of time ruled by the same colonial ruler (C), does that really imply that the rulers of people-group A have a natural and absolute right to dominate and domineer over – indeed, to steadily dispossess and destroy – people-group B, after C departs?  But that is what Indonesia insists; and what Indonesia is doing – dispossessing and destroying, and by so doing, not coincidentally, expanding the Dar al Islam.  And the world in general seems to think this is a jolly good thing and that Muslim Indonesia has every right to thus behave.

Now, we hear a report of an underground petition in favour of West Papuan Independence – which if achieved  would mean the pushing back of the borders of the Dar al Islam and then either the creation of a new free Infidel sovereign state, West Papua, or else its union in some form with its neighbour to the east, the ethnically Melanesian and majority-Christian Infidel sovereign state, Papua-New Guinea. which inhabits the eastern half of that same island of New Guinea –  that has been quietly circulating from village to village among the native Infidels of Papua, garnering a vast number of signatures.

Papuans return to find their houses burned by the Indo Muslim military….

Attack of the Sodomites

Pope Francis: “Christ himself asks us to welcome our brother and sister migrants and refugees with arms wide open”

Christ didn’t ask his followers to commit collective suicide.

In spreading his nonsense, the Pope is endangering his own people, particularly in light of the papal idolatry that is rampant in the Catholic Church today. Read the whole thing below the fold.

Muslim dog removed from airplane

Woman who demanded dogs be removed from airplane is Muslim former professor of Islamic Studies

Robert Spencer:

Might this incident have had something to do with the fact that Islam hates dogs?

“Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.’” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50

“Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert.” — Sahih Muslim 3811

“Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e. about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog for hunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.” — Sahih Muslim 551

Anila Daulatzai seems at least at times to wear hijab, and in 2014-15 was Visiting Assistant Professor of Women’s Studies and Islamic Studies at Harvard Divinity School.

Now why would a Muslim claim to be “deathly allergic to dogs” but not have any evidence of it on a flight?

Australia: Multi-million-dollar taxpayer-funded “deradicalization” helpline “failing to gain traction”

Taxpayer, call Anne Aly and demand your money back!

Anne Aly

Deradicalization programs, upon which the West has placed so much hope, have long been an obvious failure. Such programs are based on the premise that the true teachings of Islam are peaceful, and so all that needs to be done is show the jihadis how they’re misunderstanding the Qur’an and overlooking its teachings of peace, and all will be well. But since the Qur’an and Sunnah are full of commands to make war against and subjugate unbelievers, the idea that jihadis can be “deradicalized” by reference to them is just a myth told to Infidel authorities to lull them into complacency.

Well, let’s see. De-radicalization programs have been implemented elsewhere, notably in Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. Let’s look at how they fared. From the Jihad Watch archives:

Gitmo prisoner reveals: Saudi “deradicalization program” is really a jihad training program

11 ex-Gitmo prisoners flee the Saudi “rehabilitation program” and join up with terrorist groups

Jaw-dropper: 25 former Gitmo detainees “return to militancy” despite Saudi rehab program!

Graduate from Saudi jihadi rehab program killed in Syrian jihad: “killed a large number of Christians before his acceptance by God”

Flight 253 jihadist wasn’t cured by Saudi anti-jihad art therapy

Former Guantanamo detainee now top al-Qaeda ideologue — “He was transferred to Saudi Arabia in 2006 where he was placed in a national rehabilitation project.”

Indonesian government admits that its jihadist rehab program is a failure

France’s only jihadi “deradicalization” center is closing — it was voluntary, and it was empty

“Deradicalisation helpline Step Together receives ‘around five calls in two months,’” by James Thomas, ABC.net.au, September 27, 2017:

A multi-million-dollar government helpline set up to support people worried their family or friends may be at risk of violent extremism appears to be failing to gain traction.

Ghanaian Migrant Who Raped Camping German in Front of Her Boyfriend Calls Victim a ‘Prostitute’

victimby VIRGINIA HALE

The Ghanaian migrant accused of raping a German student whilst threatening to kill her boyfriend if he intervened has branded his victim a “prostitute” in court.

Identified only as Eric X. in local media, the failed asylum seeker is accused of raping the 23-year-old victim in a meadow near Bonn, after slashing the camping couple’s tent with a machete and demanding their valuables.

The pair handed over six euros and a portable set of speakers, before hearing their assailant tell the woman, “Come out, bitch. I wanna f*** you,” in English  — threatening to kill her 26-year-old boyfriend if he tried to prevent the assault.

Defying the advice of his lawyers to stay silent, the Ghanaian railed against his victims — who local media report to be heavily traumatised by the attack  — during his appearance at a district court in Bonn.

UK: police will not be taking shoes off when raiding mosques

Police ‘may have to’ break mosque footwear rules again

Signs of anti-dhimmitude in the UK? Murder, rape, and mayhem are acceptable, but wearing shoes at a mosque is a terrible sin. That’s the inverted logic of Mohammedanism.

Sensitive police raids

After the film circulated last week, of officers trying to keep order in a brawl being obstructed by worshippers more concerned about uniform shoes than the fighing within and without, some of us predicted that the result would be diversity training for the junior officers and grovelling apologies from the senior officers. However, during the inevitable ‘meeting with community leaders’ I get the impression that the opposite happened. This is the BBC, an organ which will always uphold diversity and PC against English custom and common sense.

A police force criticised for wearing shoes when attending a disturbance in a mosque “may well have no choice” but to do so again, a police commander said.

Thames Valley Police was called out to Townfield Mosque, High Wycombe, during Friday prayers on 15 September. In their haste to stop the disturbance officers said they did not remove their shoes, as is required in a mosque.

Supt Kevin Brown said officers will observe the custom “other than to intervene immediately to prevent harm”. Mr Brown said his officers acted “positively” and entered the building “endeavouring to protect the sanctity of the mosque whilst trying to prevent serious injuries”.

Following the reaction, Mr Brown said he had a meeting with current and former mosque committee members where it was agreed the police “acted as would be expected by any member of the public calling them to respond to an emergency”.

The old-fashioned English custom is that a man (but not a woman) should remove their hat when entering any building but definitely will when entering a church. But NOT when that person is a  police officer dealing with a current incident in which he might need his helmet as protection. I suggest this is the same principle in a mosque, but for footwear, and I interpret this as being what Mr Brown is saying. On a courtesy call his officers will remove shoes; when policing an incident they will wear their full uniform as necessary. 

One eyewitness, Murtaza Ahmed, spoke to the BBC on Wednesday and said: “Everybody knows you don’t come with shoes in to a mosque, but as somebody called the police they had to come.”

As a result of the disturbances, police are currently investigating a report of an assault.
