Freedom of speech a tool to maintain domination of Muslims, rally told

A Sydney rally against images of the prophet Muhammad on Friday night finished with heads bowed in prayer, after fiery speeches and arrests

A Sydney rally against images of the prophet Muhammad on Friday finished with dozens bowed in prayer under floodlights, after fiery speeches urging Muslims not to “turn the other cheek” to satirical portrayals of Islam’s last and most revered messenger.

About 600 attended the Lakemba rally, organised by the radical group Hizb ut-Tahrir, carrying signs that read Je Suis Muslim, I Love My Prophet, and Muhammad, Our Leader Forever.

“If [the prophet] was here today he would deliver the same words, and would extend the same hands, and despite all the insult and ridicule, would open his arms with the greatest warmth, the level of which some would accuse us of being the cause of climate change today,” the crowd was told.

The right to speak freely was dismissed as “one of the many political tools used to maintain dominance over the Muslims”.

    “Domination” is the only thing these feeble-minded putzes can understand. It’s either us or them; and I’m not going to give them the whip-hand without a fight. I’m funny that way.

    War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength is the slogan of George Orwell’s novel 1984 where in the ‘future’ England is under the control of a tyrannical socialist party. One of the main mind programs of The Party was the so called “double thinking”, or doublethink, which “describes the act of simultaneously accepting two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct, often in distinct social contexts.” We call this diversity and multiculturalism today. Orwell was right!

    If you don’t like free speech, then you are free to go to any other country that doesn’t have it. I am so sick of the perpetual victimhood card being played by these 7th century cretins.
