Short-circuiting a multi-culturalist

Central to the beliefs of the committed multi-culturalist is the notion that no one culture can be superior to another. All are to be equally valued, cherished, celebrated, etc. At the same time, most multi-culturalists will agree with the rest of us that there are such things as universal rights and values, that is to say, rights to which everyone is entitled. Here is where it's possible to have a little bit of fun.

Over drinks with a friend and colleague who is, shall we say, a bit to my left in political thought, I posed this question to him: Do you believe it's possible for one culture to be superior to another? Not just to believe it's superior, but to actually and objectively be superior? His answer was a quick, emphatic and unequivocal "no".

I then asked him if he believed in universal values, rights to which all human beings were entitled. He quickly answered "yes", then saw the trap. He gave a sort of queasy smile and said, "See, now you've worked me into a corner."

Indeed I had. If one believes, for example, that all people have the right to worship or not worship as they see fit and that women have the same rights as men, how can one believe that Saudi culture is equal to Western cultures? The straight answer is that you can't, at least not without being a hypocrite. Kind of makes that "rich tapestry of interwoven cultures" nonsense look a little threadbare, doesn't it?

Of course, there was no way he was going to climb down from his "all cultures are equal" hobby horse, but at the same time he wasn't about to argue against the notion of certain rights being applicable to all people. So in the interests of continued friendship I let him off the hook by changing the subject. But we'll get back to it, I'm sure.

HOW DO WE DESTROY ISLAM IN THE WEST BEFORE IT DESTROYS US?
The twin pillars of Islam in the West are ideological and social. Both need to be removed if Islam is to be eradicated as a major threat to our lives and well being.

IDEOLOGICAL PILLAR
A Muslim is one who believes that the Koran is the literal word of God, valid for all time. He also believes that Mohammed is 'al-insan al-kamil', the perfect man. Any attempt to find errors in the Koran, or question the character of Mohammed, will cause a frenzy of fanatical rage.

Mohammed is the one and only foundation of Islam. To question the integrity of his character is to open up the possibility that the whole system is a scam.

These two tribal totems – the Holy Book and the Prophet – are surrounded by appropriate tribal taboos and must be treated with superstitious awed reverence, as demonstrated by the outrage caused by the Koran in the toilet and the Danish Motoons.

Of course, by any reasonable standards the Koran is a pile of crap and rightly belongs down the toilet. It consists of mangled and misunderstood Judeo-Christian doctrines mixed with Mohamed’s projection of his own vicious, tyrannical ego onto a Supreme Being (or rather a Supreme Bogeyman), plus copious quantities of venomous and vitriolic ranting for those who refuse to believe this tripe. The Koran is also full of factual errors and contradictions

Similarly for the other totem. Mohammed is a repulsive scumbag, who if brought to justice in a modern country would be serving multiple life-sentences for a variety of crimes including murder, mutilation, torture and child-rape.

To attack the ideology we must continue to attack the two totems, by use of rational and ethical arguments and plain ridicule – which is highly effective as the Motoons have shown.

No one likes to realise they have been scammed or brainwashed into believing a load of B/S. Nevertheless, totally irrational and ridiculous ideologies may be widely believed, propagated and protected, if they serve the purpose of some ruling clique or power structure. Remember how the Stalinist and Nazi thugs established their power bases on the two irrational foundations of Marxist economics and German racial supremacy.

Truth and satire are not sufficient to destroy irrational belief systems where power is at stake.

SOCIAL PILLAR
Islam lives in a mutually-reinforcing symbiosis with a theocratic social-political power structure based on dominance and submission. The power structure is three-fold:

(a) At the top of the pile are the vicious manipulative Ulema – the power-obsessed Muslim clergy. They are the custodians of Sharia law and are judge, jury and executioner in Islamic countries. Such is the dominance, power and prestige of the Ulema that they can get anything they want. When Ayatollah Khomeini asked one of his congregation to lend him his four year old daughter for a pedophilic one-night-stand, the father happily agreed.

(b) Next is the ordinary Muslim man. Adult Muslim males are guaranteed absolute unfettered dominance over their women and children, who may be killed with impunity for bringing dishonor on their spouse or parents.

(c) At the bottom of the heap are the subjugated kaffirs – the infidels. Infidels living within Dar al-Islam are second-class citizens subject to severe discrimination and extortion, and are liable to be killed or enslaved if they fail to pay Jizya (protection money). Kaffirs living in Dar al-Harb are legitimate targets for robbery, rape, fraud etc by the Ummafia.

To eradicate Islam, this theocratic social-political power structure will also need to be abolished. The following steps must be taken if we are to survive…

(1) An immediate end to all Muslim immigration coupled with deportation of illegals.

(2) Reverse the PC policies which have made our country so attractive to Muslims. We have bent over backwards to appease their ever increasing demands, and what thanks do we get? Bombs on trains and soldiers beheaded. Make this country VERY unattractive to Muslims. (Sprinkle pig’s blood on all seats in planes, buses and trains?)

(3) Bug all mosques and madrassahs. When enough evidence has been collected nationwide, carry out a purge and jail and deport the murderous Ulema for sedition and incitement to violence. This will get rid of the vast majority of these vermin.

(4) Ban cousin marriage. Not only will this seriously disrupt Muslim breeding habits and so reduce their rate of growth (55% of Muslims marry their first cousins), but preventing inbreeding will also increase the intelligence and decrease the incidence of mental illness in the next generation, which has got to be bad news for the perpetuation of Islam.

(5) Make drama lessons compulsory in primary schools. Muslim pressure groups know the value of role-playing and are constantly trying to introduce da’wa into kaffir schools in the form of ‘let’s pretend we’re Muslims for a week’ etc. But this tactic can be used in reverse. Drama lessons using proper materials could increase the confidence and assertiveness of Muslim girls.

(6) Provide sanctuaries for women, girls and apostates attempting to escape from Islam.

(7) Introduce heavy and very obtrusive zero-tolerance policing in Muslim areas and searches of all Muslims at airports.

(8) No more appeasement of Islam in any form. Remember the dominance/submission psychology of Muslims. Like a dog, a Muslim needs to know who’s boss. They need to feel themselves to be subdued, otherwise they attempt to become dominant themselves.

(9) Strict controls on citizenship and the right to vote. Some sort of loyalty test (maybe national service) to be made compulsory before being allowed to vote.

(10) Anyone going around with their face covered in a public place must be arrested.
