I used to think it was cowardice.
But I’ve changed my mind. It’s actually sheer stupidity.
That is the key character trait displayed by Western leaders attempting to deal with Islam.
The unholy mess we now find ourselves in is not the result of some elite conspiracy, carefully orchestrated by evil masters with evil minions possessing the virtues of discipline, foresight and self-sacrifice to a heroic degree.
Nor are we here due to paralysis and fear.
We’re at the point we are due to the enduring power of human stupidity. Ignorance, combined with a liberal dose of stubborn pig-headedness and the unexplainable desire of most humans to simply follow the crowd off a cliff, explains our predicament.
The UK has seen three terrorist attacks in under three months. And the most significant thing that has been learnt in this time is that there is actually an army of terrorists living in Britain. More than 23,000 jihadis have formed a massive wolf-pack over there.
This wolf-pack is growing by the day and is nearly the same size as the entire full-time Australian Army.
Our generation might think of the spitfires and hurricanes when we hear the words ‘Battle of Britain’. Our children will hear those words and think of knives, mosques and suicide vests.
You’d think that this unprecedented situation and the impending British election would open eyes and become a powerful antidote for fuzzy thinking.
But, as I’ve said many times before, you’d be wrong.
The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, just four days out from the election and only hours after the latest attack, laid the blame for it on Facebook.
Yes. You read that right. Facebook.
This is what she had to say:
“We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed.
“Yet that is precisely what the internet – and the big companies that provide internet-based services – provide.”
Three men ploughed their vehicle into pedestrians on London’s most famous landmark and emerged to slit the throats of pub-goers while mouthing off in support of the Islamic State and the British Prime Minister decides to bemoan the internet.
It seems this all could have been avoided if Facebook had gender-neutral emojis and a ‘dislike’ button.
It is sheer stupidity. Utter looniness. Insanity on steroids.
And it’s catching too.
Our Prime Minister chimed in with a similar thought bubble from the other side of the world. Here is what Malcolm had to say:
“I would say that I think that the British Prime Minister has put her finger on a very important point, that there is too much tolerance of extremist material on social media and that, ultimately, requires cooperation from the big social media platforms, in particular, Facebook and Twitter.”
One thing is clear. Neither Theresa May nor Malcolm Turnbull have ever posted an ‘anti-Islamic’ meme on Facebook. If they did, they‘d know full well that this internet giant responds to such ‘extremism’ rapidly and consistently.
When it comes to the internet, the social media ‘Thought Police’ are already out in force, making it a safe space for Islam.
To highlight the idiocy on display over this call to close down safe spaces for extremism, one need look no further than the British government itself.
It is led by a woman who stated shortly before becoming PM that many Britons ‘benefit a great deal’ from Sharia law.
I kid you not.
Britain has Sharia zones enforced by Sharia courts. It is the ultimate safe space for ‘extremism’ of the allegedly non-Islamic kind.
Theresa May should close these courts down rather than setting in motion a chain of events that will only result in the further removal of freedoms for ordinary citizens. I can guarantee you that they, rather than Muslims, will feel the effects of any internet crackdown.
And she should look at the welfare funding (provided by hardworking Britons) that sloshes through the Sharia safe spaces.
Just over a year ago, the British government decided to pay men with more than one wife an extra £317.83 per month, per wife. The government is going to pay out, even though men with more than one wife are actually breaking British laws.
It is just another example of many demonstrating that the British government is not helping. It is hurting the British people.
If it won’t crack down on illegal marriages but will instead hand over great wads of cash to Muslims who break this law, why on earth should it expect this community to have any respect for any of Britain’s other laws, like the one that prohibits murder?
The biggest provider of the ‘safe spaces’ that allow terrorism to flourish in Britain is the British government, led by Theresa May. She might like to reflect on that.
However, the truth is that the cause of Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with ‘safe spaces’ or the internet and everything to do with Islamic ideology. And Islamic ideology stems from the ‘messages’ sent by Allah to Mohammad and his lived example.
Let’s sit through a short multiple choice test to help connect the dots for those who are too thick to comprehend this.
Mohammad was a fighter and a lover of his enslaved concubines. He went to war, beheaded entire captured tribes and preached that all should convert to Islam, cough up the dough if they chose not to, or die.
Muslims believe that Mohammad was the most perfect man to have ever lived and that his example must be followed.
Consequently, it is logical to conclude:
- Islam is a religion of peace.
- The internet is responsible for terrorism.
- The requirement for non-Muslims to pay protection money to stay alive is proof that Islam is tolerant.
- This test is offensive.
- Devout Muslims are prone to violence.
If you selected any of the first four answers then I have some good news for you. The British Prime Minister is no doubt hiring ‘experts’ for a new massive homeland security department that will keep Britain safe from the internet.
You’ll fit right in. I suggest you send your resume right away and cease reading this webpage. It may give you cause to report ‘extremism’.
If you chose the last answer then you’ll understand why stupidity is reigning supreme today.
Congratulations on owning a front-row ticket to a re-enactment of the end of the Roman Empire. The barbarian hordes have just emerged from stage right.
