So the blogs have their bowels in an uproar over El Ingles essay over at Gates of Vienna because he used the word genocide. He never advocated for it, mind you .... but merely used the word in laying out the different scenarios of possible outcomes in the eventual Islamic takeover in Europe.
from my standpoint, however, it is a sad day for free expression, and neither do you appear its champion.
well, if it should ever come to pass that islamic jihad gets a firm toe hold on these shores, unopposed, perhaps in part because the conservative "movement" defined itself out of existence by expelling from its midst anyone who departed from orthodox dogma ........
because it certainly appears to me that "pajamas" has nothing to do with the free exchange of ideas and thought.
i am going to make a point, which seems hardly subtle to me, but which may have escaped your notice, in your all consuming haste to avoid loss of profits because of controversy, but precisely those issues which are the most sensitive and most fraught with controversy and peril, are those issues which most need discussion, in a free, frank and open atmosphere. you have, sir, done nothing less than take another chink out of the intellectual armor of democracy ....
Why is this dangerous kerfuffle ridiculous or as Mick Jagger said at Altamont, 'Why are we fighting?!?"
This is a ridiculous conversation for myriad reasons. The argument, in and of itself, is an act of submission. Once again free speech is kicked in the teeth so as not to offend. And each time the West cedes a freedom, the line in the sand is moved, Islam scores one for the home team and we descend deeper into dhimmitude.
Secondly and more importantly, genocide on the part of Europeans (and let's be honest, it was the Germans, the Huns) is the most impossible of all unlikely outcomes despite their recent history.
First off, the Muslims are not the Jews.
The Jewish genocide of the second World War was possible because the Jews were (and still are) too civilized. They got on those trains because they could never conceive in their wildest imaginations of human beings treating their fellow man with such barbaric depravity. The victims of the Nazis .... Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, were all unprotected minorities, the target of spineless bullies. The Jews et all were fair game, easy prey.
The Muslims are not. The bullies of old will not take on violent jihad.
The question of Muslim genocide is an intellectually dishonest question. The Europeans have already surrendered .... under the guise of multiculturalism. But what it really is, is fear. The Brits are giving Muslims with multiple wives, multiple benefits. Their Home Secretary proclaimed the ban of the term Islamic terror, in exchange for "anti-islamic terror". Their are no go zones in England. There's a low grade civil war going on in France and no go zones. From the Netherlands to Spain, Sweden to Denmark - each country in Europe is in the throes of cultural and societal transition to Shariah law.
If/when there is bloodshed, it will be the same violence going on against non-believers, infidels in Islamic countries. Read the Koran. Read it in conjunction to what is going on and being said in Islam today. When they take over any European country or any other non-Muslim country, clearly the only possible "genocidal plan" will be to kill off all the men and take all the women and children as sex slaves to prevent a revolt that will undo their take over. There may very well be a massive slaughter and enslavement but I assure you it will be Islamic jihad against the nonbelievers. That is the very real scenario that everyone needs to know and come to grips with.
Carl C. writes me, "I have the Koran and have been watching and studying the Muslims since 1967. Believe me, they plan a massive slaughter and enslavement of ALL non-Muslims. We are not just talking about becoming dhimmis again and losing our freedoms. We are literally fighting for our lives and very few people know it. Their religious leaders are preaching slaughter today."
