USOFF: The General Public’s Ignorance And Apathy 

Written by Larry Usoff on June 30, 2020

The story is that a “roving reporter” was interviewing people in the streets. He would ask them what they thought of the political scene unfolding. It soon became startlingly apparent that the average person, and that would be the 25 to 50 age group for his purposes, had no interest in current conditions. They gave, almost universally, the same reply, “I don’t know and I don’t care.” Some, to their credit, tried to give an answer but were so far off the mark that it was clear that ignorance and apathy were their watchwords.

Ask pretty nearly anyone, of any age and political persuasion, what they think about the Muslim invasion of Europe. Some will say it is awful…but they don’t know what to do about it. Some will tell you that it’s been going on for years and it might be too late to stop it. Still, another person might answer that as long as it stays in Europe, it’s not any concern of ours. To my way of thinking, all of those answers and several other variations of them, are extremely dangerous. Reading a lot of books as I do, it’s inevitable that some of them would be of a political or historical nature.

September of 2019, the Muslim Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib, spoke about “honor killings” in Islam. While most honor killings are carried out by misogynistic Muslim men on wives or family members who have been disobedient or done something such as dating a non-Muslim, which brings shame upon the family, it isn’t unusual for Muslim mothers/sisters/aunts to take part in honor killings. What’s more, a Muslim male who has dishonored the family is often honor killed by family members, as well. In court, the murderers get light sentences or are acquitted. A fifteen-year-old girl was raped and impregnated by her brothers. SHE was murdered for bringing dishonor to the family. This is the mandated thinking, passed down from the 7th Century to the modern-day. Rep. Tlaib, (D-MI), is so steeped in progressive dogma that she opted to exploit what is being perceived as an honor killing to denounce “toxic masculinity.”

In Australia, a Muslim security guard assaulted a three-year-old Australian girl. The judge gave him two-and-a-half years to four years. It seems to me that ignorance and apathy are playing into these very light sentences when dealing with Muslims. Speaking to police, the girl told officers Al Bayati “said I have to kiss his bottom but I didn’t want to.” Al Bayati took her by the hand to the stairwell. Eleven minutes later, after receiving sexual gratification, he walked her back to the playground where her seven-year-old sister was crying because she couldn’t find her younger sibling. This is not an isolated case…Muslims get, mostly, light sentences for heinous crimes. This leads me to believe that the judges are truly not aware of the background of the Muslim perpetrator(s). A world-wide “easy touch” seems to be the norm when dealing with Muslim crimes and criminals.

For the moment I’m going to chalk that up to FEAR. Muslims take a great deal of pride in “settling accounts” and if that involves killing the entire family of the person who wronged you, so be it. Islam is a very patient cult, they have a plan, and they’re sticking to that plan. The plan calls for the entire world to be under Islamic domination.

America may be in conflict now, but we will get through it, and we will work to correct any things that may be deemed to be oppressive. Contrast that to the thinking of the 7th Century and Islam, where you are a Muslim for life…literally. Coming out as an ex-Muslim is beyond difficult, it is often deadly, as apostasy in Islam can result in the death penalty in many Muslim countries. But even in America, Muslim apostates are often disowned by their families and sometimes even honor-killed. They are shunned by their friends, but even more surprisingly, they are denounced by Leftists in America who have much in common with Muslims, including a shared disdain for Christianity and Judaism. Atheism is rising in the Islamic world, faster than anyone could have imagined. But we also know that even in the West, many apostates hide their lack of faith from their communities and especially from their own family. Today, Ex-Muslims of North America (EXMNA) launches billboards to support former Muslims with billboards in Atlanta, Chicago, and Houston. Sporting the message “Godless, Fearless, Ex-Muslim”, the billboards highlight the astounding growth of atheists from Muslim backgrounds.

Parting shot: About now you may be wondering how ignorance and apathy play into this…right? There are people in the world, in the modern world, that still hold to beliefs from the Dark Ages. They are ignorant but probably don’t know that they are. There are people that are ignorant, and know they are…but they don’t care. There is a movement slowly entering our consciousness. It’s been around for about 1400 years and only recently have we really been aware of it.

I would refer you to read about the Battle of Vienna and how a Polish King saved Europe from the “Moors”. The plan designed in the 600’s is working and the world’s ignorance and apathy may be the key to its success. A true believer in Islam is a danger to our civilization.
