Political correctness has moved through the liberal media and academia like a plague over the past 10 years, and, most recently, especially concerning Islam. If it persists Americans will die en mass.
Those of you who read LCL regularly, know of my respect for Washington Post op-ed columnist Charles Krauthammer, but it seems even Charles has caught the bug.
Charles recently gave us his two cents on the difference between Islamics and Islamists in a roundtable on Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The conventional wisdom, it seems, among the media elite is that a wide, sweeping ideological chasm exists between the two.
Okay, it is time to issue my usual PC disclaimer. One can never be too careful when Rahm Emanuel might be reading. Most Muslims are, I’m sure, law-abiding citizens. Yadda yadda yadda. To the Left that has all of the impact of sending Joe Biden to Israel to shore up US-Israeli relations, anyway.
For all I know Wilders may be a fascist. I don’t trust anyone with anything close to a Germanic accent who might foam at the mouth when they’re excited. But one thing is certain: this guy is under sentence of death, not by extremist Muslims, but all of Islam.
Acceding to the fact that most of Charles Krauthammer’s 1 trillion brain cells are functioning most of the time, and that I am an eight-cylinder thinker who is at best firing on six on any given day, Charles can still be wrong. And he is.
In a land where religious freedom is woven into the very fabric of our tradition, it is understandable that Americans will give Muslims the benefit of the doubt. But Muslims regard the very insinuation that Mohammed was anything other than the anointed prophet of their god as a sin punishable by death. Wilder has accused the prophet of being a pedophile and a warlord.
Let’s be certain here that Wilders’ accusations against Mohammed are not idle talk. Wilders will eventually die for his ‘crimes against Islam,’ just as did Theo Van Gogh in 2004. The Netherlands has been all but overtaken by Islamics.
And right now he is being condemned as a liar and fear monger for remarks that are historical fact; Wilders’ charges are true. His call for the banning the Koran is extreme, and I do disagreed with it, but Holland has fallen on serious times with Islamics.
Let’s view a couple of excerpts of Muslim reactions to Wilders’ showing his film in the House of Lords in London this week. Mind you, these are not Dr. Krauthammer’s so-called Islamists; these are everyday English working stiffs, many are British citizens.
“Islam will conquer the west … it will enter the house of every unbeliever … Islam will dominate.”
Yousef is on record here as saying that Jihad is the highest form of Islam. That there is no ‘moderate’ Islam.
How much more evidence do we need?
