Islam: Not conforming to liberal expectations

“…Central to the liberal narrative is the thesis that if you are understanding enough, tolerant enough, embracing enough and do enough ‘celebrating’ of everyone’s differences, eventually people will all come round to being like liberals: gushy, blindly optimistic utopians with a misguided though perhaps well-intentioned set of motives.

This is – at best – a strategy for failure; at worst a cynical ploy providing cover to well-meaning fools to execute a policy of betrayal against their own civilization. To put it in Classical terms, liberals are not only throwing open the gates of Troy; they themselves built the horse and are wheeling it in.

One may understand those Muslims who moved to the west since WWII. Since the ramparts were down, they came in. Why wouldn’t they? In their place, I know I would – it is normal and understandable to want a better life.

But the fact remains that had they successfully built and maintained desirable societies – societies in which you don’t get chopped up for having a wrong opinion, for example – many would have had no impetus to come.

I do not believe that there is any intention to help Islamic communities solve their problems in Europe; rather that they are being used cynically by those who control policy to achieve the cultural balkanisation of European peoples. But if the liberals were serious about helping Islamic cultures in the west, the way to do that is not do defer to them, but to stand firm in the principles of those thinkers who made European civilizations attractive in the first place.”

    Yes but Great Leader Trudeau’s loyal patriotic media has the important news today. They are excited that he has been named as one of the best dressed men, and is in so many magazines. He is so young and dreamy. And his wife is being interviewed on CP 24 news tonight. Must not ignore our first lady.

      The media is a collection of imbeciles for whom such shallow things like how a man dresses are the height of importance.

        But his socks, WB! His socks are incredible! 😉

          Bah Humbug.

            He puts the “a” in argyle, the “s” in stripes, and the “i” in infidel idiot. 😉

            He is an asshat.

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            Indeed, a chip off the old asshat.

    it is a quantum thing

    If liberal social engineering worked there would be more harmony, instead we’re more divided than ever. In fact we’re finding weirder things to fight over all the time, such as freaks who don’t know what toilet they’re supposed to use.

      true

    Speaking of LIberals. The Wynne government paid over 100 thousand dollars to snow plow companies for the April 1 snowstorm, since their contracts were over by then. These are the same companies that still owe 30 million dollars in fines, for shoddy work. But hey, this is Ontario, its only money.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      Fear not, the snow plows are powered by windmills that cost a kazillion dollars each. 😉

      • WalterBannon

        Ah, now I feel reassured. Carry on.

    • huron

      big deal its government money!!!!!!!!

    The “progressive” approach to Islam is nothing less than appeasement, and surrender.

    It did not work with the Nazis, and it is even less likely to work with the Muslims.

    These progressives are just idiots who are incapable of learning from history or doing any critical thinking.

  • Etobicoke_Gladiator

    Justin has clearly borrowed Wynne’s strap-on to fuck all Canadians yet once again.
    I guess, as Huron says, it’s a quantum thing that I can’t understand.

    Islam is not compatible with Western Civilization.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      I’ve come to the conclusion that Islam is not compatible with any civilization. Civil society and Islam are incompatible.
