International Delusions

"Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one."

I have voted Liberal Democrat for 20 years but as the "Left" declines further and further into insanity and leaves me further and further to the "Right", I see no alternative but to vote for the BNP (or another right-of-centre party should one appear). Tired of seeing the ever increasing number of rabid, ludicrous, hate-filled, "left-wing" blogs, I thought I'd better participate. Now it seems this makes me a racist, fascist, Islamophobic, "Zio-Nazi" (!), crusading white supremacist! I'm such an enigma, even to myself.

Islamophobia - an entirely rational recognition of the threat posed by radical Islam.

Racist/Fascist/Islamophobe/Etc. - anyone who recognises said threat or attempts to resist the global jihad.

Politically correct double standards

A further example - were it needed - of the double standards now forced on us by naive political correctness and its newfound, incongruous bed-fellow, a certain violently intolerant religion.

Last week several US newspapers decided not to run an episode of a long running cartoon strip because it mocked radical islam.

Yesterday Pakistan issued an official press release condemning a badly drawn cartoon - which apparently passes for mohammed - in a Swedish newspaper.

"The Government of Pakistan will continue to work, with like-mined countries, in the UN to find ways of addressing the recurring issue of defamation of islam and its sacred personalities."

Meanwhile in Australia a statue of the Virgin Mary in a burqa ("The Fourth Secret of Fatima") and an image of Jesus Christ that morphs into Osama bin Laden ("Bearded Orientals: Making the Empire Cross") are entered in an "art" competition. No problem.

The students at Sydney's National Art School presumably realised they were unlikely to be beheaded by a crowd of angry Christians. However, the school may yet be obliged to remove these "artworks" but not because they offend Christians (well, not to the point where they'd murder you anyway): Australian Federation of Islamic Councils president Ikebal Patel said "we don’t have any paintings or drawings depicting any of our prophets, so I find it quite offensive."

All religions should be ridiculed because all religions are ridiculous. There's only one religion that regularly and openly threatens my life.

Update 31Aug07: Ahmadinejad claims 'Zionists' behind Swedish cartoon. Surely. They're behind all wars as well: "Anywhere they are found there is war. Anywhere where there is war they are behind it". International Jihad is just a Zionist plot.
