Hurt Feelings and Radical Islam
What’s more important to you, the feelings of Muslims or gay lives? This is one of the many provocative questions asked by Milo Yiannopoulos. He claims that gays have been abandoned by the Left and the LGBT community is finally waking up to it.
Evidence for this might be the surge of gun purchases by gays and lesbians after the tragedy in Orlando.
But there’s still a long fight ahead of these reasonable people as the Left continues its incessant war against all reason. They want to expand “safe spaces.” Well that label is about as meaningful when it comes to the safety of gays as “religion of peace.”
“Well I keep hearing it’s guns that hate gays, not Islam.” Listen to yesterday’s program and find our show on Gun Violence and Media Deception on iTunes and subscribe to the show to download the most recent episodes.
Now back to Milo Yiannopoulos and the audacity of common sense. After the shooting and after his calls for gays to join the Right or at least abandon the Left and learn how to protect themselves. Because on thing is for sure, the Left won’t protect you. And neither will the religion of peace.
Encouragingly, these flags appeared on Thursday plastered all around West Hollywood.
Milo was banned twice and reinstated twice from Twitter this week. He’s a bit of a provocateur. But we allow that here in the United States. And by being a little outrageous he’s able to spark some incredibly important discussions. But not everyone is so lucky.
Civilized Europe isn’t able to discuss some of their most serious problems. Rape in Sweden has increased by 1400% since their influx of immigrants. Liberals call the downward trend of gun violence in the US an “epidemic of gun violence.” If that’s a case then there’s not a word that exists to describe the rape crisis in Sweden.
Swedish politician Michael Hess tried to draw attention to the problem with a strongly worded post on Facebook.
“When will you journalists realize that it is deeply rooted in Islam’s culture to rape and brutalize women who refuse to comply with Islamic teachings. There is a strong connection between rapes in Sweden and the number of immigrants from MENA-countries [Middle East and North Africa].”
Well Sweden (along with the rest of the EU) has hate speech laws. And they don’t care whether the statements people make are true or not. The Swedish court gave him a fine and suspended jail sentence.
The Court [Tingsrätten] notes that the question of whether or not Michael Hess’s pronouncement is true, or appeared to be true to Michael Hess, has no bearing on the case. Michael Hess’s statement must be judged based on its timing and context.”
But don’t get too comfortable. This isn’t just a European problem. Obama, despite trying, hasn’t been able to limit our first amendment rights. Now he has an ace up his sleeve as debates ensue over letting the EU control the internet.
Obama can’t limit your speech online. But if the EU controls the internet, good luck.
