I have friends who insist that everything we’re seeing on news, and all the angst and perpetuated by politicians concerning Islam’s onslaught into the free world is actually a clever marketing strategy. It’s merely a ploy to get our money or votes or Internet clicks. Americans, what rubes! In other words, the world is perfectly safe. America and the West are under no cultural threat simply because a few scatterbrained terrorists are occasionally waiving guns and bombs in people’s faces.
Lighten up all you reactionary, racist, Islamaphobes. You have a better chance of getting struck by lightning/winning the lottery/seeing a good Superman movie than getting killed by a terrorist. – Your friendly, neighborhood progressive
It’s funny that every liberal practically wets themselves trying to accuse someone of Islamaphobia, which, at this point is anyone who offers the slightest criticism of the Religion of Peace. It’s funny because, according to Breitbart.com, Trevor Phillips, the former Labour Party Parliament member and Chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission who actually coined the phrase “Islamaphobia” has seriously changed his tone. Phillips will be hosting a T.V. event Wednesday night in the U.K. called “What British Muslims Really Think”. As you may have heard, England and Europe are having some shockingly unexpected safety issues since the tidal wave of Muslim “refugees”.
Some of the research the program will unpack includes:
- 1 in 5 Muslims in Britain never enter a non-Muslim house.
- 39% of Muslims, male and female, say a woman should always obey her husband.
- 31% of British Muslims support the right of a man to have more than one wife.
- 52% of Muslims did not believe that homosexuality should be legal;
- 23% of Muslims support the introduction of Sharia law rather than the laws laid down by parliament.
What motivates this complete 180 from the author of the 1997 report, Islamophobia: A Challenge for Us All? The fact that Trevor Phillips is honest enough to admit that he got it almost all wrong. ‘” I thought Muslims would blend into Britain… I should have known better.” Phillips is quoted in Breitbart. In tomorrow’s program Phillips will instead warn about the growing Muslim “nation within a nation”. Instead of joining and enjoying the liberties of Western civilization, Muslims are literally challenging everything from within. The Daily Mail reports that there are 85 known Sharia Courts operating inside Britain in defiance of the English rule of law.
As encouraging as it might seem to see one of the world’s leading advocates for progressive multiculturalism wake up to the truth, this feels oddly like a broken record we keep dancing to over and over. 20 years ago people like Trevor Phillips lived in head-in-the-clouds denial of reality, preening over the slightest feelings of “oppressed” people to justify their rage towards anyone who was simply pointing out what was happening right in front of them. Today, those friends I mentioned at the top are the Trevor Phillips of 20 years ago.
How many of them will actually listen to these daunting concerns instead of hiding under their unicorn-delivered, Utopian ideals like a child hiding under their bed sheets from an imaginary monster? How many will recognize a real threat instead of embracing a false reality?
