Mad march of political correctness

The Australian 3 August 2011
By Janet Albrechtsen

MARK Twain knew a thing or two about political correctness when he said: "Sometimes I wonder whether the world is run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it."

It's tempting to think of the PC crowd as just a bunch of busybodies who are having us on. Early episodes of Sesame Street carry adults-only warnings. Enid Blyton has been cleared of all golliwogs. And last year a Seattle school renamed Easter eggs "spring spheres" so as not to offend children by alluding to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Political correctness seems to march to an imbecilic beat.

 

What About The Great Achievements Of Islamic Civilization Through History?

Citizen Warrior 3 August 2011

The following is a chapter of Islam 101:

The OIC Calls the Shots

Gates of Vienna 3 August 2011

For the last ten days commentators all over the world have been preoccupied with Anders Behring Breivik. The psychology of the killer, his "Christian” beliefs, his "right-wing extremist” political opinions, and the resulting necessity for a crackdown on "Islamophobia” throughout Europe — these have been the major topics of discussion.

Shortly after the atrocity occurred, it became clear that the EU and European national governments were not about to let the crisis go to waste. Less than twenty-four hours after the shootings, Europol was ready to go with its blueprint for a task force for Norway. Its plans to deal with "homegrown, non-Islamic terror threats” had obviously been in place for a while, ready to be pulled off the shelf and utilized at the first opportune moment.

 

The witch-hunt against Thilo Sarazzin

Vladtepesblog 3 August 2011

The truth ‘provokes’,   Sarazzin’s facts are "divisive”, his positions are "intolerant and racist”,  that everybody knows,  although no one read the book. The  far left drecks-media and the political elite croak in unison, but Sarazzin is being heard around the world. Leftist apparatchiks like Merkel & Sarkozy will soon be gone, but Sarazzin’s book, ‘Deutschland schafft sich ab’, (Germany does away with itself) and the problem with Islam remains.

Can Islam Be Reformed?

Town Hall  2 August 2011
By Dennis Prager

The question is in no way meant to be provocative, let alone insulting. But the world, including vast numbers of Muslims, needs this question answered.

After having studied Arabic at college and lectured on comparative religion for decades, and having devoted years to writing my upcoming book comparing American values with leftist and Islamist values, I have become convinced of two things regarding Islam: It must be reformed, and it can be reformed.

 

How Low Can They Go?

Gates of Vienna 2 August 2011

The following article about Geert Wilders’ response to the recent attacks against him was published today in De Telegraaf. Many thanks to the PVV for sending this translation:


Wilders furious at ‘witch hunt’ after the Norwegian drama


"The ‘Left’ can get lost”
Geert Wilders is furious. The chairman of the Party for Freedom feels he is being demonized by left-wing politicians such as Dutch Labour party leader PvdA-leader Job Cohen. In no possible way has he contributed to a climate in which murderers such as Anders Breivik feel called upon to the urge to use violence, states Wilders. Right after the drama in Norway, Wilders disassociated himself of the murderer Breivik, who seems to nourish a fascination for right politicians such as Wilders.
