Alongside the honor brigade’s official channel, a community of self-styled blasphemy police — from anonymous blogs such as LoonWatch.com and Ikhras.com to a large and disparate cast of social-media activists — arose and began trying to control the debate on Islam. This wider corps throws the label of “Islamophobe” on pundits, journalists and others who dare to talk about extremist ideology in the religion. Their targets are as large as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and as small as me.
The official and unofficial channels work in tandem, harassing, threatening and battling introspective Muslims and non-Muslims everywhere. They bank on an important truth: Islam, as practiced from Malaysia to Morocco, is a shame-based, patriarchal culture that values honor and face-saving from the family to the public square. Which is why the bullying often works to silence critics of Islamic extremism.
More needed like Ms. Nomani, who call this out.
What? There would be actual CONSEQUENCES to forcing companies to provide paid leave? Wow.
Well, most of the media sure won't call the Evil Party out on it.
They only do that on Stupid Party members.
On November 23, 2014, I posted: "Pedophiles for Democrats," which pointed out that Terrence Patrick "Terry" Bean, 66, a rich fund-raiser for Barack Obama and other Democrats faced charges of raping a teenage boy, and the case of Jeffrey Epstein, a close friend of Bill Clinton, who attended parties hosted by Epstein on Epstein's island hosted orgies that included underage girls.
The American news media yawned. Terry Bean is a co-founder of gay rights groups, not a retired linebacking coach for Penn State. While Jerry Sandusky's pederasty was international news, Terry Bean's was not.
Ah, the politics of "Which group of minority people do you listen to?"
There are, you see, dueling racial angles. The 17-year old Morrissey
“corrupted” is African-American. This leads some African-American
delegates to insist that Morrissey cannot be permitted to sit in the
legislature. White “master” preying on black subordinate, and all that.
But wait! Morrissey’s constituents are predominantly
African-American. Thus, some contend it would be “paternalistic” for
mostly white legislators to deny these folks the representative of their
choice. Disenfranchisement of blacks, and all that.
Cornel West, call your office.
Y'know, if this had been a Stupid Party member who'd been screwing a 17-year-old girl...
Well, yeah, the open terrorists and groups like Mommies Want both share the objective of the commoners being disarmed.
Yes, still feel like crap, though apparently no fever today. Dammit, I'd been planning on going to the Dallas Safari Club show today, but between this and the chance of infecting others, that didn't happen.
