Political correctness silences debate on Islam in Germany

Update:

Marc Doll, a German politician  from the Christian Democrats, has resigned from the party. He declared that today’s CDU has nothing in common with Konrad Adenauers CDU and that telling the truth (about Islam) cannot be a taboo.

On Theo Sarrazin, Hugh Fitzgerald offers background and clarification here. But as noted in the editorial below, the problem of illiberal liberalism (a term coined in an article written a few months before 9/11) quashing free speech and the right to voice unpopular (or unpedigreed) concerns and opinions, and unpleasant facts about Islam is far broader than any one case. After all, it keeps happening, and stops untold numbers from speaking up in the first place.

“Political Correctness Is Silencing an Important Debate,” by Matthias Matussek forSpiegel,  (JW) September 10:

German central banker Thilo Sarrazin is being pilloried over his polemic chastising of Muslims, but there are a few things his critics clearly fail to understand. You can’t cast away what the man embodies: The anger of a German people who are tired of being cursed at when they offer to help foreigners to integrate.

Nothing is as it used to be. In this season of public outrage, the case of Thilo Sarrazin has grown far bigger than Sarrazin. It’s much bigger than the man or the Islam-critical book he wrote.

The Sarrazin case is also a Merkel case, a case for his party, the center-left Social Democrats, and for the German political and media establishment. Sarrazin has become code for the outrage over how the politically correct branch of Germany’s consensus-based society have dispatched their stewards to escort this unsettling heckler to the door. On their way, they seem to be trying to teach him a lesson, as well: “We will beat tolerance into you.”

Political Correctness

“Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

“Racist” is the scream of the gutless

Have you noticed how shamefully quick some people are to scream racist, when what they really mean is that they are too lazy, cowardly or brainless to confront a genuine problem?

Poll Results:

Why are our political leaders so ignorant about Islam?

60 % believe because of cowardice, fear

20 % believe its because of  economic deliberations, trade etc.

20 % its because of  threats & blackmail by moslems

New Poll:

Why do some Western governments openly support Islamic Extremists?

Islam will dominate

Shari’a is divine and above our law

Ignorance and/or stupidity

Comment of the day:

Eight years later

Eight years after the attacks the New York Times and the BBC still refuse to label these killers as terrorists.The US (& the world at large) lost its moral clarity. The moral clarity being eaten away by linguistic gymnastics  like “they are “militants”, “gunmen”, or “bombers” but never terrorists. They do not kidnap people in the world of the Times and BBC. They “”capture” them as if they are a legitimate police force. Firing rockets & blowing up pizza parlors have been translated into “non peaceful protest.” The victims of 9-11 are never mentioned anymore. Instead we are told that it was immoral and illegal to interrogate the mastermind on the attack. These terrorists can count on the BBC to plead their cause.

Moral clarity? Sorry, it’s not in style anymore, just not trendy enough. Today, political correctness, moral equivalency, & appeasement are the order of the day. Throw in a little multi-culturalist BS & some historical revisionism,  and we are entering another period of irrationality.

Political Correctness, defined here:

“Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional,
illogical, liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous
mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Listening to Fran Kelly on the way to work, she had some Somali community leaders on basically saying it was our fault this happened because these men found it difficult to integrate due to racism and Islamophobia.
She then had an ‘expert’ from London on who said that it was the US War on Terror that was to blame for Somalia’s problems today because the US didn’t want an Islamic state to succeed (inter clan rivalry had nothing to do with it)

So it is good to know that the West is still to blame for all the world’s problems…

Al BeBeeCeera always supports the (false) claims of Muslim “victims:”

Judge Ian Trigger is PC resistant:

Hundreds of thousands of migrants here for handouts, says senior judge

Daily Mail

article-0-05dff5ab000005dc-757_233x423

Hundreds of thousands of immigrants come to Britain just to get welfare benefits, a senior judge declared yesterday.

Judge Ian Trigger said the cost of the handouts has helped to double the national debt.

He spoke out as he gave a two-year jail sentence to a Jamaican drug minder who disappeared from the notice of immigration authorities after claiming asylum.

He told Lucien McClearley, 31, at Liverpool Crown Court: ‘Your case illustrates all too clearly the completely lax immigration policy that exists and has existed over recent years.’

Sentencing McClearley, he added: ‘People like you, and there are literally hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people like you, come to these shores to avail themselves of the generous welfare benefits that exist here.

‘In the past ten years the national debt of this country has risen to extraordinary heights, largely because central Government has wasted billions of pounds. Much of that has been wasted on welfare payments.

‘For every £1 that the decent citizen, who is hard-working, pays in taxes, nearly 10 per cent goes on servicing that national debt. That is twice the amount it was in 1997 when this Government came to power.’ 

McClearley arrived legally in Britain in November 2001 on a visitor’s visa.

He was arrested in October 2002 after it ran out but claimed asylum and was released while this was being processed.

He then ‘disappeared from the radar of the authorities’, the court heard. His application was rejected in 2004 but he was only arrested this February after police stopped a car he was driving and noticed it smelled of cannabis.

A search of the house where McClearley was staying in Everton uncovered cannabis worth £7,200, a gram of cocaine and a fake passport.

Mr Trigger also said hundreds of thousands of immigrants came to this country to ‘avail themselves of the generous welfare benefits that exist here’

He admitted taking a vehicle without consent, possessing cannabis and cocaine, possessing a class-B drug with intent and two counts of possessing false identity documents.

Judge Trigger, who is also a part-time immigration judge, told McClearley: ‘The fact that it took nearly two years to process your claim shows how desperate the situation in this country has become.’

The 65-year-old judge said he ‘hoped and trusted’ McClearley would be deported immediately on release.

Britain’s collapse continues: 

Women police officers are being issued with headscarves to wear when they visit a mosque.

They are expected to put the scarfs on shortly before they enter the mosque, in keeping with Islamic custom.

 Denmark Defence Minister: Headscarves out

Denmark’s Defence Minister Søren Gade has told Parliament that Muslim women in the armed forces are not to be allowed to wear headscarves as part of their uniform. 

Question remains: why would any Western nation have Muslim women in the armed forces?

Political Correctness in the War on Islamic Terror

Rock Peters /Global Politician

President Barack Obama and his Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napalitano have scrapped the terms “war on terror” and “terrorist attacks.” The new hygienic, sterilized language and “politically correct” term being introduced by the Obama administration for the ‘war on terror” is now “Overseas Contingency Operations”. In place of “terrorist attacks” the politically correct term is “Man Caused Disasters.” Let’s not offend murderers, al-Qaeda and the Muslim terrorists that attacked us! This will make us safer, no doubt.

Obama and Napolitano are quite obviously out of their minds. If these mental cases were in power during WW II they would not call Hitler’s “Third Reich” Nazism they would refer to Nazism as “Asserting German Pride.”

If in the Obama administration the “war in terror” is now “Overseas Contingency Operations” and “terror attacks” are to be called “man made disasters” then I motion that we should now call:
